Skip to comments.Attack by Limbaugh Awakens a ‘Stop Rush’ Campaign
Posted on 03/03/2012 10:37:06 PM PST by Nachum
Actually, they are remobilizing. A Twitter account, Stop Rush, which has been dormant since late 2010, woke up on Wednesday, when Mr. Limbaugh first called the student, Sandra Fluke, a slut.
On Friday, as complaints from Stop Rush and others about Mr. Limbaughs comments mounted, a handful of companies said that they had halted their advertising on The Rush Limbaugh Show, at least temporarily.
One of the companies, Quicken Loans, wrote on Twitter, Due to continued inflammatory comments along with valuable feedback from clients and team members QL has suspended ads on Rush Limbaugh program.
Two mattress companies, Sleep Train and Sleep Number, made similar statements on Friday. A representative of Sleep Number wrote on Twitter, Recent comments by Rush Limbaugh do not align w/ our values, so we made decision to immediately suspend all advertising on that program.
Mr. Limbaughs comments on Wednesday about Ms. Fluke, who had testified in support of the Obama administrations requirement that health insurance plans cover contraceptives for women, were immediately noticed by Media Matters, a liberal media monitoring group that has been raising red flags about Mr. Limbaughs language for years.

Rush can apologize all he wants. It doesnt change the fact that everything he said is true. Truth hurts sometimes. The girl is a pimp (pimping to get all the rest of us to pay for her and others to have the freedom to have protected sex), and she is a ...(female who cant afford to have sex unless WE PAY for it)!
“I expect this from the Left, but there was some pretty ugly comments about Rush right here on FR this morning. I was ashamed of some of the stuff I was reading.”
Ever hear of “sleeper cells” and “burrowing in”? These things exist at the political/cultural level, believe me. It is certainly very easy to do this on the internet.
You shall know them by their fruits.
the absolutely BEST FB page ever created. By far.
I think plenty of us can’t stand liberals with the same fervor they display in expressing their hatred of us. This is the first time in my life I’ve heard people talking about civil war. Two different groups in the country want to live in completely different ways. Yet the left refuses to leave us any enclave that thrives on merit, as defined by intellect, hard work and personal responsibility - both fiscal and social - without regard to EEO categories. When the leftists watch the media, they become deluded that they are in the vast majority and they can force us to comply. I don’t see us retreating in the way they think we will.
I love that freakin pic! “Please take a number” “Next...” LMAO!
Yeah, but you gotta know the rules. The S word works a lot like the N word. If you're a member of the oppressed group, you are free to use it.
They have their operatives in every corner of the sewer ready to jump on anything slightly connected to the right.
Remember the measly little things they went after on Bush and Palin?
Wish the media had been as ready on 0.
I think I’m going to start a “Stop the slut” campagn.
In the long run, he will become even bigger because he tells the truth. Very few do...and people are starting to wake up.
I would like to attempt to put a finer point on it. If this were an army we were up against, the media would represent the air war and the unions, ACORN, etc. would represent the foot soldiers. For a long time the MSM had air supremecy and have been whittled down to air superiority. But, Breitbart is right in the sense that if the influence of the MSM was reduced to just a fair playing field, the Left would lose far more PR battles, elections and court cases to the point of being relatively ineffective.
Yep, just as suspected.
You can’t out-maneuver them. You can’t destroy them. If you damage them, the essence of what they are remains — they reorganize and keep coming... eventually you will weaken — your resolve will be gone... they are relentless!
If you can’t take a little bloody nose — maybe you had better go back home and crawl under your bed. It’s not safe out here. It’s wondrous — with rewards to satiate desires both subtle and gross — but it is NOT for the timid.
Apologizing to leftists is like bleeding around sharks.
Apologizing to leftists is like negotiating with the Taliban.
“If I was Rush I might just take my wife and my money elsewhere and leave them all to each other, screw em so to speak.”
I think Rush’s show will end by 2015. My guess is that the left will pursue him all the harder now, and he’ll get fed up with being hamstrung by his advertisers.
Like Rush, I find the idea that I need to pay for birth control for strangers incredible. I find the idea that a woman who attends a $50K/year college needs me to buy her condoms laughable. And it seems intuitively obvious to me (and to my 14 year old daughter) that an unmarried woman who needs $1000/year to avoid pregnancy is a slut. Like Rush and my daughter, I do the math and just start laughing at her claim.
But modern America is past the point of no return, IMHO. 7 states now allow homosexuals to marry. The likely GOP nominee rebuked military leaders in 2008 for being negative towards homosexuals. My sister, who was a missionary for much of her adult life, was cooing over her son’s marriage, and how she was sure God was going to bless their union - while I bit my tongue to avoid pointing out that they had been shacking up for two years and were proud of it.
I think America has reached a point where the only unforgivable sin is believing in individual responsibility. As a nation, we have been blessed by God, but we’ve rejected God with a vengeance. I think the majority of Americans reject the idea that sin is possible. To the extent they believe it exists, they blame God for it.
My values were dominant in the 50s, but there is no doubt in my mind that the vast majority of Americans reject what I hold dear. And if Mitt ends up the nominee, I’m going to find it very hard to get out and ‘fight’ for ‘my’ guy - because like Christie, Mitt is not and never will be ‘my guy’. My values are incomprehensible to him, as his are to me. And I guess I’m one of those horrible social conservatives, more motivated by the moral cesspool we’re headed for than by taxes.
Since I own a business in Los Angeles that does business with a lot of liberals, I don’t dare post any of my political thoughts on FACEBOOK, exactly for that reason.
I find other ways to “fight” them, like charging them more for my services.
Captures them in a nutshell - the so-called Intellectual Progressive movement is really irrational and degenerative.
Great point! I listen everyday but do so at work so I don’t hear every word. I have yet to hear the word slut even after being inundated with this story for several days.
Paging all Limbaugh FReepers: Did Rush actually use the word SLUT?
Not that it matters to me because Fluke obviously is a Ho. Just trying to set the record straight.
I f that isn’t an alien from another planet I don’t know what is.
Remember, if soldiers of wars past decided they “just couldn’t go any further, that maybe they will lose the battle,” etc., we would’ve lost wars. This IS war, and there are wins and losses until you WIN the war. Dig deep within yourself for the courage and fire in your belly to move forward and fight. Warriors stand together and protect each other..they do not abandon each other. Look to the example of our brave men and women today...they fight.
Is this country, warts and all, worth saving? Damn right, it is. The enemy does not quit, and they will have to be taken out. Learn from this and do not be a quitter...fight for this country, our Constitution, our FREEDOM and liberty.
Do not allow setbacks to discourage you from staying the course...think of all the soldiers before you in the same, similar situation.
Better to fight the left on our feet, than on bended knee. There’s a saying about fair weather friends...they’re around you when all is going well, but when things get rough, they disappear. This is OUR country...soldiers past have lost their lives for THIS country so that WE may be free. Don’t be a fair weather friend to this country. Step up and be counted, and help WIN this war.
I didn’t doctor the photo genius I got it from GOOGLE so I guess someone else did. So, why don’t you ask before you accuse someone of doctoring a photo?
Actually I doubt this thirty year old woman has ever had sex with a man so why would she worry about Birth control if the truth was know like most feminizes she likes girls.. I can tell you the rent a mob sure really getting paid this year.They needed a new cause to bring in money for their drug habits..keep-them drugged up and they will work hard for the communist causes..
I heard the Rush program while on my lunch break, and yes, slut was one of the words used to describe Fluke. Prostitute and pimp were also considered.
I definitely agree with everything you’ve said. The reason I have a bad feeling about Rush is that I’ve heard him say a few times now that nothing interests him and when he gets bored, that may be the end.
I also know that he meant what he said about Fluke, and that he’s right, and that he knows he’s right.
I also think that America is past the point of no return.
I agree, very disturbing. I’m not happy about Rush’s apology, even sent him an email about it, but I would never throw him under the bus like some here have. I still support Rush. We need him more than ever especially when we just lost Andrew Breitbart. Speaking of Andrew, I was disgusted to hear from Hannity, when he was interviewing Ann Coulter about him, that she is friends with Bill Maher. I had forgotten about that, rightly so. Makes me realize there are few true conservative voices around these days and more and more Coulters.
Like I said to Rush in my email, I will wait to hear what he has to say on Monday.
Spread the news!
The left talks out of both sides of their mouths. Let’s just do what Mark Levin did...tell em’ to go to hell, and end the conversation....AND BEAT THE HELL OF OF THEM.
AND WIN THIS WAR.
Well, there was some point in time not too long ago when I would have totally agreed with you, and I still want to...but...what are we fighting for? Mitt Romney? What’s the point of that.
Should we all get up and fight every day so that a bunch of idiots have a free country to live in? They don’t want to live in a free country. If they are so Hell bent on living under Marxism, why not let ‘em?
Regarding what you said about soldiers actually fighting for this country...that is the solution to this communist takeover I am beginning to think. I hate to even say that, but until we prove in no uncertain terms that we aren’t going to be taken, then we are going to be taken. What we are doing now is akin to pissing against a hurricane.
The apology gave them the “taste of blood”. We will have free and fair elections this fall????
There are ways. The first thing to recognize is the extent to which they operate off other people's money. They is their vulnerability.
In Wisconsin, a good first blow was landed by the Republicans in prohibiting mandatory dues withholding for public employee unions. Given a choice, public employees don't like the idea of sending in union dues. This cripples the union's activism.
A second thing would be to figure out how to eliminate the network of "non profit" organizations that the left uses to get their activism done. One way would be to just simply eliminate tax deductions for giving to non-profits.
Yep, he used the word slut:
“”What does it say about the college co-ed Susan Fluke [sic] who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex — what does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute.”
Please read (and save) my damning "J'accuse" of the Obama regime, Murdergate, and the liberal media establishment that protects the murdering leftist criminals.
I wrote and published it one day before the "death by natural causes" of Andrew Breitbart, while he was taking a routine evening walk alone near his home.

Thank you for the replies I appreciate them. It doesn’t make a bit of difference toward my opinion but I like to have all the facts.
Rush got the half hearted, commercially drive “apology” out of the way. We all know she’s a slut and he knows it too, now so do lots of others. Now it’s time to start listing and reminding over and over, the childish namecalling the left has engaged in, especially Sarah Palin. Hypocrites hypocrites hypocrites. Keeping calling the bastards out, turn the attention to PC and its immature adherents. Everyone I know, including liberals, publicly or privately hate PC. Time to turn the tables, don’t let them define the issues, keep our conduct and language clean in accordance with our values.
Maybe I’m dimmer than most, but this seems like a boon to Rush. This type of publicity cannot be purchased, and in my travels this weekend, I have come away with the notion that most folks either do not care or see this for what it is; a silly liberal cultural play.
As for the apology, I am of two minds, one is that he did it as part of a bigger deal (I’ll bet Monday’s show will the best ever and lauches a line of T-Shirts like Gitmo),or sometimes it is better to lose a battle than the war..
Just my opinion..
I have thrown it up on my site under “obama ethics’ and on my Twitter feed....
These whiners don't have any idea what they are up against.
I do the same. And...I won't ever hire one knowingly either.
If it's jobs they want they can go to their own kind.
So he’s a Soro’s Slut?
Shutting down free speech is a big agenda item for the left.
If I don't know the person well or they are an Obama race pimp, I blocked them.
Screw them. This is their tactic for 2012. You criticize zero, they label you a racist.
Rush would have had a similar effect, but with reduced blowback, if he had omitted the last two sentences. Then again, I could never do Rush's job, and could never think on the fly, live, for three hours a day without making a goof.
“Mr. Limbaughs comments on Wednesday about Ms. Fluke, who had testified in support of the Obama administrations requirement that health insurance plans cover contraceptives for women, were immediately noticed by Media Matters, a liberal media monitoring group that has been raising red flags about Mr. Limbaughs language for years.”
Wait a minute here... The New York Times just ADMITTED here that Media Matters is a liberal media monitoring group! I thought Media Matters, by law, can only be permitted to be a tax-exempt organization (which it currently is) if it’s non-political???
Wrong. of course rush stepped in it. The subject has been changed from an insurance policy debate to rush’s name calling. Rush blew it. He has allowed them an opening to change the subject of the debate.
I thank both of you for your input. I’m sure I ought to take backing up more seriously. I have never had a catastrophic crash but I know it’s just a millisecond away at any given time. Free storage sounds good. I like free.
