One of Rush Limbaugh's most supportive demographics is the elderly. Just listen to the show for an hour and you're bound to hear ads for stair lifts, elder care and other products specifically targeted at the silver generation.
Well, one organization that serves the nation's senior population will no longer be advertising with him as of today. The American Association of Retired Persons has officially ordered Rush Limbaugh to stay the hell off its lawn.
Yesterday AARP indicated to StopRush volunteers that, going forward, they will be working to keep their ads off Limbaugh's show.
It really should come as no surprise that AARP wants nothing to do with Limbaugh. He's been attacking them as a "socialist organization" for years:
Decent folks who believe in tolerance and equality are no longer powerless against Limbaugh's efforts to spread intolerance on the radio. StopRush is making a major impact--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.
