Chipping away

"The First Amendment doesn't give anybody the right to be heard. People don't have to listen to you." — Rush Limbaugh

FOR ONCE, Mr. Limbaugh is right about something.

I admit, Hey Look can be a bit obsessive. Others think that HLSS's problem is being too broad. Animal rights and welfare, human rights and welfare, poverty, equality, fairness, justice — I can't help but care about them all. 

I have four more narrowly specific burrs under the saddle — removing the sold sign on government through strict campaign finance laws, preserving and enhancing separation of church and state, enacting restrictive gun ownership and carry laws and . . . drum roll please . . .  getting Rush Limbaugh to shut the f*** up. 

I would never infringe on Slimebuagh's right to be an idiot loudmouth. I just want him to give up and go away because no one is willing to give audience to his malicious lies and hatefulness.

On that note, here's some happy news. According to data compiled at StopRush, 37 advertisers and 11 stations have given El Rushbo the heave ho in August. Woohoo!!

(I'd be doing the happy dance if I hadn't sprained my ankle four days ago climbing over and jumping off a very tall freeway fence in order to get a perfect picture of a bridge for one of our clients.  Stupid? Yes. Illegal? Probably just a little.)

I am in complete awe and admiration of the dedicated crew at StopRush.net for their tireless commitment to 24/7 monitoring this conscienceless, misogynistic, racist money monger.

Here's what StopRush has to say about their effort.

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.
