Rush---fight fire with fire

Posted on 03/05/2012 7:28:46 AM PST by CanadianBloodAmericanHeart

These liberal groups and websites see blood in the water. WE MUST HAMMER THEM RIGHT BACK! I am contacting his lost sponsors with this simple line: "I will NEVER try your product once you bowed to the Democrat party and their 30 year old ‘student’ and her activism." Next I will contact the existing ones to tell them to stand on guard for the country.

And as far as ‘fighting fire with fire’, it’s already happening.

Perhaps conservatives could encourage other hosts (like Hannity, Levin, etc) to drop their advertising from Carbonite and ProFlowers.

IMO leave the political parties out of it.

This is about the freedom of expression and they are cowards at best and covert supporters of Big Government cradle to grave socialism at worst.

Well SL@T SANDRA, lets just see. Discount Condom King sells 100 Condoms for $22.95. (We assume you know that the pill WONT prevent STDs, and with the number of times you are partaking thats a BIG concern.) Taking your $3000 over three years divided by $22.95 equals 130 - 100 count orders, or 13,000 condoms . Divide that by three years is 4,333 men per year or 11.87 MEN PER DAY.

YOU ARE A $LUT !

I will be listening today to see what sponsors really want my business.

I may even buy a case of Rush’s ridiculously expensive tea for the first time.

The economy is so bad under Obama this poor women of 30 cannot afford birth control or the gas to get to her local Plan Parenthood office for free birth control pills. People need jobs so they can afford these items. She was confused when she applied at GeorgeTown, she thought a Christian school would provide her free birth control. The stress of the bad economy has this 30 year old Democrat activist confused and she needs our help not for folks to call her names. Her poor parents had to listen to all this( first she had to beg for free pills because she had too much sex and not enough money, and second Rush calling her a slut) and then her grandparents having to explain all this at Church this past Sunday. We need a new President so this doesn’t happen again or to more of our Democrat activist population.

Let’s face it. We are at war with the Leftist media which is nothing more than an arm of the Socialist Democrats. Instead of defending ourselves, we must go on the attack against the media until they are defeated. Never mind defending our side agaisnt bogus acusations, attack, attack, attack! For example, Gingrich did a very good job against Gregory on ABC this weekend.

The six other advertisers that say they have pulled ads from his show are mortgage lender Quicken Loans, mattress retailers Sleep Train and Sleep Number, software maker Citrix Systems Inc., online data backup service provider Carbonite and online legal document services company LegalZoom. Add ProFlowers, which includes Sherri’s Berries and CherryMoon Farms. Any members of Hannity’s insiders, see if he’ll tell them to take a hike. Levin also.

Go after Bill Maher for calling Palin a c**t and t**t. I'll demand that his advertisers abandon him. And Ed Schultz for calling Laura Ingraham a right-wing slut.

Two can play this game.

I own a sleepcomfort. Sent them an email - no more positive references from me, no repeat purchases, and quit sending snailmail advertisements.
Bought put options on sleepcomfort(SCSS). Insiders have been selling off, new CEO, canceled their best marketing - this company’s GOIN’ DOWN!

If I could afford Rush, I would have him represent my company. I don’t care what the left says. The man was right on and spoke the truth. As he has said “Some times, the truth hurts.”

Rush is not going down!!! These Democrat “dirt bags” in their hate frenzy, will only drive more “good” folks to listen to El Rushbo!!! This disgusting low life woman is a disgrace to all womanhood!!! I agree, Rush should not have called her the names he did, but....in reality he was right on the mark. As for me, I will never buy or support any of the advertisers that dropped of the “Rush” show!!! Under Obama, the country is being destroyed!!! We must keep our eyes on the prize, the devastating political defeat of Obama, and....the entire destruction, politically of the Democrat Party.

What I wrote to ProFlowers.com:

I am no longer going to order anything from your company due to your cowardly stance re: Rush and Sandra Fluke.

A 30 yr old wanting me to pay for her contraceptives? Where is the end of this welfare for able bodies?

You took a stance. So am I.

GOODBYE

I admire all of the RUSH support here, but the sponsors aren’t to blame.

RUSH is the one who apologized. He has built himself up as this “principled” conservative warrior, never taking guff and always talking down the “establishment GOP”

Thing is RUSH caved. He gave up on his principles to protect his paycheck. I understand that, and I don’t have a problem with it.

What disappoints me is that I thought was too big to be pushed around by liberal temper tantrums.

Sadly, I was wrong.

I ordered a couple of times, to send to folks out of town, but no more. I'll find out the name of a florist near where I'm sending flowers, and use them. I 'friended', on Facebook, the florist in my hometown, which did my wedding flowers, and on the major holidays, they always put a note on their page NOT to use the 'national' florists, because they use the local florists to create and deliver the products, but take a big cut of the price. Why not spend the same amount of money, and have it go directly to the small business?

I unsubscribed to all of their email advertising. I'm sure someone will notice if they had a spike of several thousand doing the same thing.

I have purchased multiple items from ProFlowers, Shari's Berries, etc. No more.

Never, the tea is fantastic. I order it all the time. Yes, it’s a little “pricey” but it’s worth it. and now more than ever, we need to order it to support Rush.

Jeff Lord said that the response has been overwhelming. He also said that Rush knows that we are with him.

I just called Sleep Number,Carbonite, and Quicken Loans, as well as e-mailing Pro Flowers and Sheri’s Berries. I pointed out that this is still America and we all have freedom of speech, even Rush Limbaugh. If they can be intimidated by a bunch of feminist activists, then I can no longer trush their services or products. Carbonite’s corporate office’s number was overloaded and I couldn’t get through.

They have obviously been inundated by callers because as soon as I got through to Quicken Loans and started telling them that I was calling regarding their pulling their ads from Rush’s show, they connected me to a special representative handling the Rush Limbaugh “situation”. I don’t know if that means that people were calling in support or the other way around.

Please don't do that. It just makes us look petty. Let's concentrate on the NATIONAL aspects of this, with the advertisers, making them aware that there are a lot more of US than there are of the liberals who never listened to Rush, anyway, so never ever KNEW who advertised on his show, before they were made aware by a national effort to target them.
