Sick of Limbaugh? Tell His Sponsors We Won't Pay For Hate Speech


 

 

For decades Rush Limbaugh has been promoting blatant racism, sexism, and anti-lgbt bigotry on our public airways. In this petition, we are telling Limbaugh sponsors and advertisers, we will not buy products/services that support his hate speech. Here are just a few of Limbaugh's quotes from over the years:

 

"If we are going to pay for your contraceptives and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch." ~Limbaugh, during a three day, on air, verbal attack of then unknown law student, Sandra Fluke. He also called her a 'slut' and a 'prostitute'. She was advocating for insurance covered birth control. (Video)

 

"Now, this is Michael J. Fox. He's got Parkinson's disease. And in this commercial, he is exaggerating the effects of the disease. He is moving all around and shaking. And it's purely an act." -Limbaugh, while also making erratic motions with his arms and hands mocking Mr. Fox.

 

"There is a movement on to normalize pedophilia, and I guarantee you your reaction to that is probably much the same as your reaction when you first heard about gay marriage. What has happened to gay marriage? It’s become normal — and in fact, with certain people in certain demographics it’s the most important issue in terms of who they vote for. So don’t pooh-pooh. There’s a movement to normalize pedophilia..” ~ Limbaugh

 

"Socks is the White House cat. But did you know there is also a White House dog?" ~Limbaugh, while holding up a photograph of 13-year-old Chelsea Clinton.

 

"Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble (African American) Jesse Jackson?" ~Limbaugh

 

"You Know How to Stop Abortion? Require That Each One Occur With a Gun" ~Limbaugh

 

"How many of you guys, in your own experience with women, have learned that 'no' means 'yes' - if you know how to spot it?" ~Limbaugh, on the subject of rape.

We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch." ~Rush Limbaugh, during a three day, on air, verbal attack of, then unknown, law student, Sandra Fluke. He also called her a 'slut' and a 'prostitute'. She was advocating for mandatory insurance coverage for birth control.
