Here’s my letter to Netflix...
Subject: Stand with Rush
It is disgraceful to hear about companies abandoning their advertising to Rush Limbaugh customers over one incident of him using language that was offensive to some, which he later apologized for. Rush was trying to use exaggeration to illustrate an important point. He was not trying to directly insult anyone. I am not even a regular Rush listener, but he is one person among many who is trying to fight to preserve our constitutional rights and freedoms against an increasingly oppressive and power-hungry government. Politicians in Washington D.C. have for far too long been nurturing an “entitlement culture” based on giving “free stuff” to people, especially to specific demographic groups that they want to get votes from. This cycle of corruption is driving our country deeply into debt and leading us closer to a grave economic collapse, the kind that Europe has recently proven modern, Western countries are not immune to.
If your company was going to be proactive about something, I wish it would be about a vital issue our country is facing that can affect all of our daily lives, not about one broadcaster making a clumsy verbal gaffe. The “entitlement culture” that is now being expanded into the realm of contraception is one of those vital issues. There is no legitimate reason that my money should have to go to support someone else’s contraception if I don’t use it or believe in it, whether is is through my taxes or my insurance premiums. There is likewise no legitimate reason that if I own a company or organization that I should be required to provide contraception free of charge to my customers. The government should not have the right to force companies to provide whatever benefits they demand, particularly when the item in question is used as part of a lifestyle that some of us choose not to participate in at all. This is a clear-cut case of the government trying to take away my right to buy the kind of insurance that I want. And I am far more concerned about my rights and my money being taken away by the government then by one man using a word that I never would have heard in the first place if I didn’t listen to his show and no one mentioned it.
I am currently seeking information as to which companies have stopped advertising on Rush’s show over this incident. I will not do business with any companies that have done so unless and until they reinstate the advertising.
Can you please tell me where you got the address? I called their customer service tonight but was told they had no idea who to speak with regarding the Rush controversy. And when I looked for an address, I could not find one. Please respond either on this thread or pm me. I’d appreciate it. I too have a letter I’d like to send.
Excellent letter!! Please make sure you send a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org because I think that’s where the war-gaming is going on right now in terms of their reaction to Rush.
