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.

How about Ed Schultz, who called Laura Ingraham a “slut”?

This is ridiculous. Liberals and leftists use vile language all the time. What a bunch of hypocrites! “Hey, here’s our chance to silence a conservative voice.”

Bunch of dishonest, hypocritical weirdos.

We need to get our hands on that petition with all the names and their addresses.

We may need it in the future if these pukes start murdering more Republicans and Conservatives.

Let's face it, Sandra Fluke looks like she couldn't give it away to any man..

I think you're looking at her through the lens of normalcy. I suspect there are thousands of her fellow liberal males who would consider her to be totally desireable.

I swear, you will have a couple hundred & the rest of these passive so-called conservatives will bail on you or anyone. They have no ideology like the leftist have. That is the problem.

If you really want to get him going, send him this little joke:

“Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you have fed him for a lifetime.

But if you give a man a welfare check, a 40 oz. malt liquor, a crack pipe and some Air Jordan’s, he will vote Democrat for a lifetime.”

I wonder the same thing. If Rush goes due to FCC ruling, then Schultz would have to as well.

I keep recalling two facts:
1. During the American revolution (which is where we gained our freedom for the liberal trolls), 1/3 of the people supported independence, 1/3 were undecided, and 1/3 wanted to remain a British colony.
2. G. Washington did not defeat the British with his First Amendment rights...He shot them.
I feel the time draws neigh...

Yes, and all of this nonsense is designed to take the public’s (and a lot of FReeper’s, I might add) eyes off
inflation

gas prices

They aren’t “furious” just scared.

They are weak little cowards with a sick agenda. If lazy and unfocused Americans took the time to examine what the Left is really about, they would be more be clearly exiled to the tiny minority status their diseased ideology deserve.

They are not scared of Rush, but the truth.

And Ed Schulz for calling Laura Ingraham a “right wing slut.”

Rush should have never called Fluke a slut.

Nor should anyone call her a whore, prostitute etc.

Anyone who does so owes an apology.
.
.
An apology to genuine sluts and whores.

Fluke is a MOOCHER, who is soon to get her LOOTER’s License from Georgetown Law.

Sluts do it for fun, both participants win, Whores do it as an honest business; an exchange of service for money; Both participants get what they want.. Win Win for all involved in both cases.

Moochers just take their share of what the Looters steal from the public.

This is why the left wins.
They make the debate about race, gender etc. rather than arguing the the actuality of the situation. And too many of us let them.

Just how in the world could Rush Limbaugh possibly have degraded this 30 yr old fraudulent freakshow any more than she had already degraded herself?
She is a proven liar, a fake, a fraud, and a partisan hack who chose Georgetown specifically to start this battle with the Catholic Church. SOMEONE is/was paying her bills and keeping her in spending cash to do the dirty deed. If that is not prostitution, then what the hell is prostitution? And why should I be paying for a prostitute in any way, shape, or form?
If she wants ME to pay for HER promiscuity, or anyone else’s, then by extension they are all prostitutes and I am being forced against my will to play the role of a john. Isn’t there a law against that?

I’ve been re-reading “Atlas Shrugged.” Looks like the current vermin in the administration are using it for a plan of action. It’s simply astounding; words fail me.

No other plan of action is possible for an essentially socialist government. They have to "expropriate the expropriators" yet create a political spin that makes it a humanitarian act - "for the children", say. Seizing assets, fixing prices, rationing resources are the tools of XXth Century socialist states, whether Communist or anti-Communist.

As their madcap policies fail, they are forced to concoct even less productive schemes. Something that can't continue won't, ultimately, so there will be an end to our socialist-created sorrows.

But not this year. ;^)

The 60+ stations listed on the link below apparently believe Ed Schultz has a radio show:

http://tunein.com/radio/options/The-Ed-Schultz-Show-p20211/

Ed Schultz believes he has a radio show according to the website www.edschultzshow.com.

But maybe he doesn’t and it’s a figment of my imagination.

I'm not going to argue the point. Maybe he does have a radio show. I can't be responsible for knowing who all the radio shows are, fer chrissakes. Did he call Ingraham a slut on the radio (you may have heard of radio. It's on the public airwaves. It was in all the papers...in 1934)? I thought it was just MSNBC, a cable TV channel, which is not covered by the FCC, which was my point that blew right on past you.

Sheeeit.

I was over talking to my brother today and his new wife was standing there. We were discussing our youngest —both daughters—and some of the real world problems they were having and what we were doing to help. And his wife comments “You two are such good fathers”.

This may sound odd but I have only had sex with one woman. I have only been married (25 years) to one woman. We have 2 children and now 2 grandchildren.

I think about how hard we tried to raise competent decent adults. And I think about how all that is being destroyed daily.

Then I think about those grandkids and the chance they are going to have to grow up to be the same. Or even have the chance to decide for themselves.

What else do I have to live for if it isn’t to try to make a better life for these kids?

WHY should I let anyone stand in their way?

So let these “furious” fools push the buttons. They are going to hit the wrong one soonday.

rush should be givin the congressional medal of honor for having the nuts to call a slut exactly what she is- a slut! But instead, the media is going to make us all tiptoe around the obvious slut and pretend she isn’t a slut but rather just a poor innocent victim of high health care costs who needs to be reimbersed by the government everytime she peaks, which apparently is an event that happens quite often- Goen are the days when it was a SHAME to be promiscuous, loose, and without morals- we now live in a day when it’s shameful to point out the obvious facts, to call someone what they truly are, and it’s more acceptable ot wink and nod and pretend there is nothign wrong with immorality

This is a GOLDEN opportunity for the right to SHAME the left- to force the left to admit the woman is living an immoral lifestyle, and to bring back hte morals that kept our society one of decency and somethign to be proud of instead of one we have to hide our eyes from and pretend doesn’t matter. But- nope- Even rush buckled under to filthy left

I’m shocked at the ignorance around here. The FCC has no jurisdiction over content on cable TV, just the “free” airwaves. Maher is not on the airwaves, as far as I know. The libs know not to say the dirty words on the airwaves, Well meaning folks on FR can’t seem to grasp the difference, and as long as the libs know the rules while we don’t, we lose.
