Take Rush Limbaugh off the Air for Bigotry Against Sandra Fluke, Women

    2. Petition by

      Gaithersburg, MD

Ever since Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke testified before a congressional committee on the importance of birth control, Republican party leader Rush Limbaugh has been making vitriolic verbal attacks against her and against any woman who chooses to use birth control. Rush has labeled women who use birth control 'sluts' and has equated health care providers who cover birth control to pimps. In his, perhaps, most inappropriate statement, Rush has demanded that women who take birth control post sex videos on the internet as payment for making the pill available. Here is just one example of the twisted, bigoted, and vitriolic statements issued by Rush on his radio show:

“What does it say about the college co-ed Sandra Fluke, who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex, what does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She’s having so much sex she can’t afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex. What does that make us? We’re the pimps.” -- Rush Limbaugh

Please sign this petition and demand that Advertisers stop funding misogyny and take Rush Limbaugh off the air.

Also, please contact these advertisers and let them know you want Limbaugh off the air:

    2. Lifelock, Lear Financial Last Remaining Big Advertisers

      Robert Fanney
      Petition Organizer

      The amazing work you and so many others have put in has resulted in over 141 Advertisers dropping Rush's show. Furthermore, Rush has lost national syndication for at least the next two weeks. The only remaining big advertisers are Lifelock and Lear Financial, which seem determined to stick with Rush to the bitter end.

      Please keep up the pressure!

      “Do you really believe ... that everything historians tell us about men – or about women – is actually true? You ought to consider the fact that these histories have been written by men, who never tell the truth except by accident.”

      His daily wordage spurns on a hate reaction from the people who listen to him as they believe he is speaking the truth and not putting it on for the ratings. As a result, he is dangerous.

      I want to know that when I choose to lose my virginity (which apparently makes me a slut, right?) I won't have to risk pregnancy because of some offensive idiot.
