      We don't let him, is all.

      We destabilize his operation. Get in its way. Vandalize it. Fuck it up. (To paraphrase the late Andrea Dworkin.)

      We do this, partly by continuing the organized grassroots backlash we've been carrying out. The pressure on his advertisers is making them drop his program as one they'll sponsor, one-by-one. Where are we, a year out? Almost 2,500 down so far? Ouch. And they basically laughed at us at first. We can inflict some serious damage. Let's keep it up.

      Our other weapon against Rush Limbaugh, is our refusal to be quiet about pain, about the potential of words to hurt many, and to kill some. We respectfully call out careless stereotypes in every-day speech, and "humor" that isn't funny. We get assailed for "political correctness." Oh, well. As soon as the reaction dies down, we notice the troubling behavior has disappeared. We've won. We persist, and we keep winning.

      That's how we defeat Rush Limbaugh.
