Hushing Rush

Like all totalitarian ideologies, liberalism cannot tolerate dissent. Libs managed to drive Glenn Beck off television; now they are gunning for Rush Limbaugh:

rush-wbec

The absurd Sandra Fluke spectacle is paying off big for the Establishment Left. This farce has cost El Rushbo the following advertisers, all of whom should be boycotted by countermoonbats:

• Sleep Train
• Sleep Number
• Legal Zoom
• Citrix
• Quicken Loans
• Carbonite

Meanwhile, as the firestorm rages around Rush because he mistakenly called Sandra Fluke a prostitute instead of a collectivist and a clown, not an eyebrow is raised when liberal radio show host Mike Malloy ridicules Americans recently killed by tornadoes, and Bill Maher, who has publicly referred to Sarah Palin as a t*** and a c***, gives $1 million to reelect Comrade Obama.

On tips from Bob Roberts and Stormfax.

  1. Now that each of those companies has already benefited from ads on Rush’s show and the marginal benefit of more ads is diminishing, they become morally constrained. What a bunch of hipocrites. In the market, this isn’t a problem. Now their competitors will have a chance to grab some market share. Boycots are pretty silly. The simple fact is that Rush Limbaugh is popular with his audience. It is the audience that makes stations want to carry him and it is the audience that makes sponsors want to buy ads. The audience hasn’t changed. Anyone who advertizes on Rush’s show will get big exposure and increased business. I can’t imagine why anyone would want that in a troubled economy.

    One would have thought that most businesses would have wised up by now stayed strictly out of politics. But it seems wealthy business owners care more about their popularity at the country club and fancy cocktail parties than the profitability of their business.

    Where was the leftist feigned indignation, frothing, and gnashing of teeth when Ed “The Red” Schultz made BASELESS accusations of the same about Laura Ingram?

    OMG I just got a message from Glenn Beck’s Website that the Comments Section has been closed and that my account is restricted.

    What was my crime?

    Posting links to Birther related articles and telling the truth.

    GLENN BECK IS AN ENEMY OF FREE SPEECH!

    This is what HYPOCRISY looks like!

  4. StanInTexas says:

    The Left are twisting themselves into tiny little knots over this incident.

    Supposedly, Sandra Fluke (activist) is not a public figure and is having her free speech squashed by Rush. And there are even calls now for Fluke to sue Rush over the incident.

    I would like to offer some advice to Ms. Fluke…

    Ms. Fluke, you are being used. The Left is going to squeeze you for every ounce of hate against Rush that they can get. But it does not matter whether Rush survives or not, YOU will be cast aside by these Liberals the INSTANT that you are of no use to them. See Cindy Sheehan for the specifics and the timeline.
    Oddly enough Ms. Fluke, by prostituting yourself to the whims of the Liberals, you have gone oput of your way to prove Rush was 100% correct in his original assessment of you!”

  5. 4th Estate says:

    HAHA – so you admit defeat and that we were able to win by getting rid of that vile Glen Beck! Next up is one of his ilk (you all like this word so much), Rush, say goodbye!

  6. StanInTexas says:

    4th, please feel free to PISS OFF and die!

    Note to self : do not call whores ‘sluts’….
    or lawyers. Whores deserve respect because at least they give honest labor for their recompense.

    re BC @ 8:50 am

    I’m sure it had absolutely NOTHING to do with your mania about posting the same link, over and over and over to EVERY thread just like you do here.

    My response to your dismay?

    Much laughter.

  9. Jim says:

    You don’t seem to understand – liberals think their poop don’t stink.

  10. Sam Adams says:

    A station in liberal Massachusetts drops Limbaugh?

    Wow; what a surprise. Actually it is a surprise that his program was ever broadcast there.

    I’m wondering whether Van Jones is involved again.

  11. Sheila says:

    I would love to know which of Rush’s sponsors are sticking with him. They’re the ones who should have our strong support.

  12. Sinister66 says:

    Number is now up to 20 advertisers dropping from his show.

    Although he went on a 3 day rant about Sandra Fluke ,that wasnt even accurate, hes just a dumb DJ. He use to be top 40 and was smart enough to see the new money was going to be in political talk radio. But hes still just a doppy DJ that has a show to attract listeners and bringing in advertiser revenue so he can have his 50 million a year contract.

    And the only one with any blame in getting Glenn Beck booted from TV is Glenn Beck.

  13. StanInTexas says:

    Sinister, I agree with you on Beck, but this issue with Rush is a big NOTHING!

    The fact that Rush has apologized, and that has only INCREASED the Liberal attacks on him and his advertisers, shows clearly that this has NOTHING to do with what he said and EVERYTHING to do with getting him off the air.

    Some of the advertisers are so hypocritical it is sad!

  14. Jimbo says:

    A Honolulu radio station has dropped Rush. The clueless little metrosexual twerp on the ABC local TV “news” last night proclaimed “…his [Rush’s] comments are too vile for me to repeat on the air.”

    What a freaking stupid dipshit.

    As are all those who drop Rush. Rush is not hurting for advertisers – they’ve been waiting in the wings for years for a chance to advertise on his program. Those who drop Rush, however, will just end up hurting themselves; loosing money in the name of self righteousness is as stupid as anyone can get.

    Liberals are such unbelievable idiots. Too stupid to breath.

  16. KHarn says:

    Anybody who thinks that SOMEBODY ELSE has to pay them $3,000 over three years for “contraceptives” IS a slut. Anyone who has that much sex IS a slut.

    Deal with it, regressives.

  17. whotothewhat says:

    This will all come back to bite in the ass. Those sponsor’s and radio stations that have dumped Rush. This chic that Rush called a slut is a professional trouble maker she not has been pushing for contraceptives to paid for by employers but also sex change operations as well. http://sweetness-light.com/archive/sandra-fluke-pushed-for-sex-change-coverage Did Rush get caught in a Bear trap yes. But the show will recover.

  18. Momster says:

    Sheila–when you listen to his show you will know who his advertisers are.

  19. J says:

    The left wants to silence Limbaugh only out of their undying love for freedom of speech.

  20. Jeff says:

    Again the moral of the story is: Never ever apologize. Always counter attack them. Demand that they apologize. Rush ought to have told Ms Fluke to FOAD and tell all of his critics and detractors to FOAD (F–k Off And Die).

  21. Kevin says:

    Actual “debate” between a Conservative and a moonbat on another website I frequent:

    Originally posted by #####
    Why did the liberals think it was ok when Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a cunt?

    Cause the truth is acceptable?

    ’Cunt’ has been succinctly defined as “the bottom half of a woman or a very despicable person” (1999). According to Francis Grose’s scurrilous definition, it is “a nasty name for a nasty thing” (1796).

    Seems right on.

  22. Kevin says:

    Everything bold and below is the moonbat comment.

  23. Bloodless Coup says:

    Glenn Beck revealed this morning on his am radio show that he has been recieving threats from the Government.

    He claims that they have been trying to shut him down.

    In addition, Beck claims that several of his colleages in the talk radio/cable news/right wing blog business have recieved similiar threats.

    I believe that if they want us to shut up that means that we should double down on what we have been doing because it means that they are losing their grip.

  24. IslandLifer says:

    He apologized! That’s where he went wrong. They smelt the blood of the WEAK and went in for the attack. That’s why I don’t listen to him. Savage Nation is more my style.

  25. StanInTexas says:

    Exactly right, IL.

    Look at what Obama’s apologies on the Koran burning have done… gotten American killed and made the situation WORSE.

  26. geeknerd says:

    Dear Bloodless,

    What’s wrong with you? Glen Beck is just a pale immitation of Rush, the original conservative talk show host.

    Keep to the subject at hand.

  27. Val says:

    Wow! Note to herself: do not express you opinion EVER!

    That Fluke is so full of herself! President Obama said when he called Sandra Fluke to express support after the crude comments of Rush Limbaugh, he did so thinking of his own young daughters.

  29. Kevin R. says:

    I’ve always thought Carbonite is a lousy deal anyway. External hard drives are so cheap and backing up is so easy to do I’ve never seen why I’d want to tie up bandwidth and pay them a fee when I can so easily do it and have full control over my files.

  30. Chris says:

    I agreed with Rush’s comments and didn’t see the need to apologize.

    Was surprised to see he didn’t have the gonads to stand by what he said and was more concerned with his sponsors.

  31. 762x51 says:

    I will no longer do business with any of those companies who have dropped advertising with Rush. If his 20M listeners all stopped buying from them maybe they will get a clue.

    Sandra Fluke(pronounced Fluck) may or may not be the things Rush said she is, however she has given us a new Liberal strategy. Just like when they torpedo a conservative SCOTUS nominee and say they have Borked them after what they did to Justice Bork. Now when they try to get rid of a conservative talk radio or TV personality we can say they have been Flucked.

  32. Val says:

    Ha! And I just got this email from my tenant:

    “Hi,

    Rush Limbaugh’s radio show is a part of the Clear Channel lineup. Let’s send a message to them that no longer can they allow Rush Limbaugh the opportunity to spew hateful and sometimes derogatory comments. Sign the petition and help get this done.

    That’s why I signed a petition to Communications / Media Relations: and Communications/Media Relations, which says:

    “Sandra Fluke, a law student at Georgetown University who was advocating for health insurance plans to cover the cost of contraception, became the target of a series of attacks by Limbaugh. Besides calling her a “slut,” he also called her a “prostitute,” said that he wanted her to make sex tapes and post them online, and speculated that she only had a problem paying for contraception because she was having “so much sex.”

    We who support Ms. Fluke, find that this is a serious offense enacted by Mr. Limbaugh and we ask that his radio show be terminated.”

    Ms. Fluke, you are being used

    Right again, Stan. I’m surprised anybody remembers Cindy ‘Mother Peace’ Sheehan.

  34. Swamp Music says:

    If my local radio station drops Rush, I will organize a protest and boycott every one of their advertisers.

    Free speech has to remain free.

  35. […] How the 1st Amendment is being gagged: Hushing Rush […]

  36. Caution Advised says:

    CARBONITE, a Rush advertiser, whose CEO loudly and proudly proclaimed its decision to depart, has seen an almost 10% drop in its stock price this week. Take notice sir. Advertising is a double edge sword.

  37. czuch says:

    Heard El Rushbo this morning saying how he’s not only not hurting, but its going unnoticed. One vendor is begging to come back. 600 stations is a big market. 20million listeners is a big market.
    20million potential nonbuyers is big loss.
    They made alot of money from advertising in his time slot and donated alot of money to liberal orginazations. Thats capitalism. Thats what he espouses.
    Aint it great???!!!

  38. varkswife says:

    Rush had it right. Sorry, Flukey, I did the math (without a law degree, even). $1,000.00 buys approximately 1700 (seventeen hundred) condoms on Walmart dot com (free shipping, yay!). If you NEED 1700 condoms a year for three years, you’re either a slut, a liar, or you have NO CLUE how to use them. Maybe you should spend your time in law school working to pass the bar instead of plowing through 1700 (SEVENTEEN HUNDRED!!) condoms a year.
