Furious liberals demand FCC silence Limbaugh
washingtonexaminer.com ^ | 3/5/12 | Charlie Spiering

Posted on 03/05/2012 4:14:48 PM PST by ColdOne

Furious Democrat activists are working to silence Rush Limbaugh for good, calling on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to pull his radio show off the air.

An activist on signon.org is collecting signatures in support of a petition to FCC to, "remove Mr. Limbaugh from the radio as he has violated FCC rules and regulations countless times. The most recent incident being his assault on women and his degradation of Sandra Fluke." The petition is circulating on Facebook and Twitter and on Democrat message boards.

Signon.org is an online service provided by MoveOn.org and has already gathered over 6,000 supporters. The petition organizer, "T. Turner," has promised to print off and send the petition to the FCC on March 7th, and is looking to get over 10,000 signatures.

The petition currently hosts thousands of angry comments - riddled with spelling errors - including people who insist that Limbaugh no longer has the right to free speech.

It will simply drive Rush to sattilite radio.

Prediction: Limbaugh will remain on the air. One year from now, no one will be discussing it. Rush is entitled to his opinions.

Under any normal circumstances the FCC would just laugh this off. Lefties get much more foul mouthed on the air and nobody cares. But today is not normal, and it would be morbidly fascinating to see that august body try to ban Rush.

All this “controversy” is only benefiting Rush. More people will be tuning in and increasing his ratings.

They have got to get the attention off the RAT admin & Congress critters given the misery they have caused. and the MSM will support them all the way. Watch soon for Holder to proclaim an investigation is underway. He needs the attention of his F&F stuff as well.

It’s all about managing the message and the news that gets out.

They’ve pushed to CENSOR Rush for a couple decades now.

A chill wind blows. The same crowd that defended traitors, antisemites, and those calling for Bush’s murder want to silence a conservative talk show host in an election year.

Wonder when they’ll spin the wheel and start gunning for Hannity, Beck, Bennett, et al yet again.

Saul Alinsky shenanigans and nothing but.

They’ve got to get him off the air before it comes out that she may not even take or need birth control meds herself.

It was a phony “testimony”, it was a press conference from a long time activist. She wasn’t even sworn in to tell the truth!

Obama is pushing us toward Civil War. Get ready, people. I warned a liberal friend I know that he, as an Obama supporter, was in essence pushing our society toward Civil War and shocked the hell out of him. He backed off his heated defense of Sandra Fluke.

I told him Obama and he, too, by extension, were trying to violate the First Amendment to the Constitution by forcing people to provide contraceptives and abortifacients. He backtracked from the claim that he was only supporting access. I also told him Obama had doubled our national debt? “He did not.” I replied that he’d better take a look at the facts. The discussion ended abruptly.

There were rumblings that, in a second term, Obama would be circumventing Congress and the Constitution making more “administrative rules” that could silence radio shows and even edit content of all news shows including the major ones who support him. Wouldn’t surprise me.

So much for that whole free speech thing I read about somewhere. Oh, and so much for being tolerant and accepting/celebrating diversity. Guess those things only apply when it is the left forcing us to be "tolerant" of something we don't like. The moment they hear something they don't like... Well, then all that messy freedom and liberty stuff goes out the window and they are revealed as the little fascists they really are.

Personally, about the Civil War thing ....I’m ready.

I can’t stand to live among these people anymore. I really can’t. I just don’t want to live out my days dealing with their insanity, day after day. The thought of heading into my autumn years living in a Red vs. Blue society has been depressing me for the last three years. Everyday I think about it and I’m not sure how the hell I keep motivated sometimes.

We already have two societies anyway. Why not just make it official.

And none of that makes a damn bit of difference. All the general public will hear is Rush admitted he was wrong.

And what’s more...NOBODY knows that better than Rush!

I’m not too concerned with these “Furious Democrat activists”. While they are running around pulling their crap, the people who they are seriously pissing off are getting ready for the day the SHTF. Then there will be no place to run to. No place to hide. AND NO MERCY.

Are these the same ‘oh so sensitive’ liberals who laughed and whooped it up when HBO’s Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c*nt?

The Democrat-media Complex is very quiet about the likes of Maher and other members of the ‘protected’ ones. Dare we say they get a pass?

Maher also called Sarah Palin a twat... Did the cun*s at the New York Times object? Nah, I suspect the oh so sensitive c*nts of the New York Times were laughing their heads off - just like the liberals in his audience.

Shall we wait to hear how ‘offended’ they are by Maher’s comment or should we wait for hell to freeze over - which by the way will happen first.

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Religion: 0bama Deathcare, among many violations, including Christmas
Speech: Most recent example, Rush. One of many
Press: Bought and paid for shills for the regime
Assembly: Any area deemed as appropriate by the Secret Service is now law. Also ran—crowd cages at the Democrat National Convention
Right to petition: Run by the Whitehouse on its site. Only valuable to Leftist causes now?

4A dead
1A? It’s not a right that can be taken away by government. But the Left thinks it can.

The advertisers are free to pull their advertising and we’re free not to buy their products...well at least until Obamacare’s ability to “regulate” commerce is supported by the SCOTUS.

As I’ve said before...that wasn’t an election in 08...it was a coup d’etat.

I’ll be really surprised if Obama actually ends up with fewer votes than the Republican - they’ll cheat as needed - and even more surprised if he actually leaves the WH without force.
