60 Reasons Why Americans Are Done With Rush Limbaugh (VIDEO)

Why Americans Are Done With Rush Limbaugh

Rush  Hudson Limbaugh III was born on Jan. 12, 1951 in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, and  for  three hours a day, five days a week, Rush Limbaugh spins racism,  misogyny, LBGT-hatred, lies and bigotry on our public radio. He seems to have no  filter, no common decency. Thankfully, we are seeing his reign coming to an end.  With each hateful word, Limbaugh is digging his hole deeper.

Just this week, Limbaugh referred to the refreshing bi-partisanship of  Governor Chris Christie and President Obama, as aMaster-Servant relationship, adding the phrase ‘drive-by’ media. His choice of words, though they, of course, smack of   racism, are only  a small example of what he has spewed over the  years. Today, he tried to sabotage a much-needed glimpse of unity in our  American political system. Rush Limbaugh is a malevolent stain on our country’s  media.


The good news: people are no longer ignoring him, thinking he’ll just fade  away. They know better and they are coming out in droves. There are petitions, boycott groups, and a database set up to monitor the sponsors that  are supporting his malignant commentary. Thousands of companies have pulled  their ads this past year. Given the surprising strength and resilience of  his protestors, and the great financial loss he is costing the radio industry,  his days are clearly numbered. And if Americans have their way, his day  can’t come too soon. Even Limbaugh’s own political party is embarrassed by him  and are distancing themselves from him more and more. Limbaugh is costing them  dearly in votes.

Here are examples of Rush Limbaugh bile from the last three decades.  Oh, there were hundreds, even thousands, to choose from. I may do several  sequels, but I don’t think he’ll be much to write about for long. Some of these  will shock you, some will amuse you, but many will sicken you. These are  my interpretations and, I’d say in most cases, I’m being  tame. Thanks to Media  Matters, his actual rants can be heard on audio, or read by text, using  the ‘Source’ link at the end of each line.

Now go grab an airsickness bag and get ready for take off. It’s going to  be a bumpy flight.

After the Sandra Fluke attack, petitions, protests and boycotts began. Since  the FCC and Clear Channel refused to take action, the American consumers  took matters into their own hands. They used their greatest weapon – the “almighty dollar” – and refused to buy from Limbaugh’s sponsors. Nearly 2,700  sponsors have made public/private statements about pulling their Limbaugh  advertising. If you add in sponsors whose who left silently to avoid the bad  press and the wrath of Dittoheads, oneboycotter said the number of sponsoring who’ve pulled ads is closer to  3,500, adding some companies do return.
