We can do this!!!!

“Take that bone out of your nose and call me back.” — Rush Limbaugh (admitted in a 1990 Newsday article to saying this to an on-air caller)

Okie dokie. Here we go!

Here's the super duper good news. Bit by bit, Rush Limbaugh is going down! 

I'm serious!!

His advertisers are bailing on him, and stations are dropping him. This is the best thing I've heard in a really, really long time, and even though I'm still suffering from a viral grunge, this blessed occurrence makes me want to run around, leaping and singing and laughing hysterically. 

What's so really, really wonderful about this turn of events is not just that this hateful waste of skin is being slowly silenced, it's that WE THE PEEPS are doing it!!!!

BTW: If any of you find this post offensive, go ahead right this moment and unsubscribe from my blog or unfriend me or any other distancing mechanism you can think of because I can tell you with the full authority of my soul, you and I do not want to be connected. 

And if by chance you are sitting on the fence and need evidence as to what a cancer on the body human El Rushbo is, I will send it. The rest of us already know.

I've heard so often, "But what can one person do?" 

The answer right now is a whole heck of a lot!

It's each one of us taking one step. And I'm here to help you do it.

First, read the below article from Daily Kos because it will cheer you up and help you realize how much power you have!!! (Included is a live link to where all of his advertisers are listed.)

Below that is part of the transcript of Limbaugh's August 12 show with comments about Robin Williams' death, just in case you want to remember how day-to-day hateful he is.

And below that, for your convenience, I've attached the 36 national advertisers and their contact information so you won't even have to leave this post to register your protest against Slimebaugh's advertisers. I'll send you local ones later.

(Note: Normally when I share someone else's article, in addition to identifying who wrote it and where it came from, I put it in small type as another visual reminder that I didn't write it, but I'm leaving the below DK article in larger type so that you may feel more inclined to read it.)

Clear Channel Gives Limbaugh Bum's Rush in Pittsburgh

by tkirkland
AUGUST  07, 2014

Rush Limbaugh has an achey breaky heart today. Clear Channel just flipped Limbaugh's WPGB in Pittsburgh to country music. It had fallen to 11th in Pittsburgh, echoing hate radio's plummeting popularity across the country. He got picked up by the smaller WJAS in Pittsburgh, owned by Radio Partners LLC, and 7,000 watts compared to WPGB's 15,000.  It is AM to boot, so likely suffers more from interference than the FM WPGB would. Pittsburgh is considered the 25th largest radio market in the U.S.

August is off to a bad start for Rush Limbaugh. Last week, he got dumped by one of his California stations, which flipped to a country music format, too, a switch the owner said was due to Stop Rush.  Earlier in the year, Mr. Limbaugh was demoted to smaller stations in L.A. and San Francisco as well, the 2nd and 4th largest markets in the country, respectively.

Mr. Limbaugh seems to be floating more fringe conspiracy theories and gross misogyny lately, perhaps in hope of maintaining the hard core listeners he has left. Today it was that the border crisis is a plot to "wrest control of this country from the white majority." That is worthy of a diary of its own; I hope someone will write one up. Last week, he hyped for two days what he called his "Vagina Justice Monologue."

Advertisers don't want to be associated with either one.  So, it's not a good long-term strategy, for him, or any of his stations.

Decent folks who believe in tolerance and equality are no longer powerless against Rush Limbaugh's efforts to spread intolerance on the radio.  StopRush is making a major impact by convincing advertisers on this show to withdraw their ads--and with your help we can do even more.  Just a few emails, tweets, or Facebook messages a week to Limbaugh's advertisers can go a long way toward making hatred less profitable.  It is our collective voice that makes us strong.

(End of Daily Kos. Kelly here again now.)

In case you need reminding (I doubt you do) Slimebaugh is the one who called a college girl a "slut" because she was unmarried and on birth control pills, and said the below about Robin Williams' death (taken from the actual transcript of His Vileness' radio show).

"If you notice the coverage is focused on how much he had, but it wasn't enough. He had everything, everything that you would think would make you happy. But it didn't. 

Now, what is the left's worldview in general?  What is it? If you had to attach not a philosophy but an attitude to a leftist worldview, it's one of pessimism and darkness, sadness. They're never happy, are they? They're always angry about something. No matter what they get, they're always angry. 

Talk about low expectations and general unhappiness and so forth. Right here it says that one the contributing factors to Robin Williams deciding to kill himself was "survivor's guilt." It's in the headline . . . 
He could never get over the guilt that they died and he didn't." 

Me again: There really isn't any transition from the nastiness of the above sentence to the below screed. And BTW, it makes no sense! (Just how desperate is he?!)

"Well, that is a constant measurement that is made by political leftists in judging the country. It's outcome-based education: 2 + 2 = 5. That's fine until the student learns it's 4. We're not gonna humiliate the student by pointing out that he's wrong. If he figures it out, cool. We're gonna take the fast learners and we're gonna slow them down so that they don't humiliate the kids that don't learn as fast as they do. It's just not fair."

So the bottom line is here is it's reported that he died, which is true, but he actually committed suicide. I just really hope that this coverage does not spawn copycats, because the coverage is fawning and glorious, and positive.

I mean, everybody would love to be spoken of the way the media's speaking of Robin Williams today and last night . . . (sigh). Man, oh, man, oh, man. The media just...You know, anybody can be...What do you think the percentage is of media people who are actually low-information, incompetent people themselves?"  

(We all in unison answer: You El Rushbo. YOU are in the percentage "of media people who are actually low-information, incompetent people." AND the description you cite of liberals — "They're never happy, are they? They're always angry about something. No matter what they get, they're always angry" — fits YOU, you dumb ass!!)

I said all that to say this: 

You can make a difference by calling and emailing these advertisers and stations!!

How do I know? Because the calls and emails that are coming in are already influencing advertisers and stations to dump him! 

So help!!! There comes a time when we all have to stop waiting for someone else to be the difference. You know he's despicable. And now you know you can help.

REMEMBER: It isn't enough to just stop doing business with his advertisers. In fact, simply ceasing to buy from them might just cause them to advertise more with him in the hope of pumping up sales. You have to tell these businesses what you will no longer or now not consider buying from them.

In our household there are seven advertisers that fit into that category.

  • We've owned three Acuras. We need a new car. Guess what we won't buy. 

  • Everybody has to have insurance. Will it be State Farm? Don't make me laugh. And BTW: isn't this the same company who did everything they could to get out of paying Katrina claims?

  • We were auto parts shopping recently, and we still have a radiator to buy. It won't be from Napa.

  • We already send our business freight via Fed Ex. UPS is constantly trying to woo us. They can kiss any chance of that goodbye.

  • I seriously sent flowers via ProFlowers about a month ago, and I was going to send some to someone else through them. Not gonna happen.

  • We already fired Home Depot for the shameful way they treat their employees. Here's another reason to never go back, and with this office move and reno, believe me we've been buying plenty of DYI supplies — but not there.

  • What in the name of heck are we going to do about Apple?? We own some many Apple products. I guess I'm going to have to lodge my complaint on the basis of that. 

C'mon!!! We can do this!!!!
