Going Going Going Gone! Out of Business!
By Melanie Nathan, 03/02/2012
Little did Sandra Fluke know that when she testified before Congress about birth control she would unleash hate from a guy by the name of Rush Limbaugh who called her a “slut” and a “prostitute.”
Fluke is a University of Georgetown Law Student and Limbaugh a GOP Megastar. Now the gloves are off and Ms. Fluke has the entire world worth of women in her corner, while the GOP are stuck with mega asshole!
Little did she know, that being forced to endure the public insult, she may have succeeded in bringing down, single-handedly, the biggest buffoon of all time! Well with a little bit of help from all of us women who are “not going to take this laying down!”
But Rush gave cause for his own demise and the ball has only just started to roll, when he said:-
“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.”
This topic is not my usual beat, however when I saw the assault on Ms. Fluke, I felt personally attacked, as if he was calling me a slut and a prostitute, my daughter a slut and prostitute, and every woman in America, a slut and prostitute.
He cannot get away with it and if advertisers do not boycott his show, then they are going to loose millions of American customers!
So after being bombarded on Twitter, a mattress store, Sleep Train, got the message and announced that it would no longer advertise on Limbaugh’s show.
“We are pulling our ads with Rush Limbaugh and appreciate the community’s feedback,” the company wrote in a tweet.
So for a while advertizing may well go cheap on Limbaugh’s show, and then the show will disappear completely, unless he funds his putrid verbosity from his own pocket.
To my way of thinking, if a business values its female customers and those who love females enough to support their honor, advertizing on Limbaugh is not worth the risk! Count yourself out of business. We will not support you.
As for the Republican Party – well you guys have a lot of disassociating to do because he is your over spokesperson and until you speak out against this, you are “toast” without any woman smatterings too!
