For More Info: Daily Kos DairyIn doing some research on the extreme misogyny of of Rush Limbaugh, I ran across this audio/video. (Well actually, I ran across a plethora of videos) I didn't think I could be shocked anymore by this man. For over a year, like thousands of others here in Daily Kos and nationwide, I've been involved in FlushRush, StopRush and Boycott Rush Limbaugh To Shut Him Down (56k Facebook followers). I also created a Limbaugh Sponsor Petition. That's how much I detest this hate-monger. This audio/video describing women, along with an extra racial blurb as bonus - stunned me.
It was posted in 2010, and moderated by The Young Turks, yet it is extremely relevant as to why there is a nationwide protest and sponsor boycott against Rush Limbaugh today. How this one got by me I'll never know."(Sonia) Sotomayor and (Elena) Kagan, what are they? They're WOMEN! That means they're victims. That means they're minorities. That means they've been discriminated against. That means we OWE 'em!"Limbaugh adds some racist slurs at the end of the audio.
"We OWE 'em! Life experiences - they've had it tough. They've had it so tough because they've been women living in America - and Hispanic women in America. And they've had to play softball as women in America. It is really (tough) and the deck as been stacked against them! And because they've had to go through life eating excrement sandwiches everyday, because of Ronald Reagan, George Bush and Rush Limbaugh, they're OWED a seat on the Supreme Court. Doesn't matter if they couldn't spell cat if you spotted them a 'c' and a 't'!"
I rest my case. If you're sick and tired of being sick and tired of Rush Limbaugh, you can get involved. Over 2,600+ companies have pulled their ads due to the boycott. Hundreds more silently have slipped out. Insiders report 95% of Cumulus Radio Advertisers have requested'No-Rush Limbaugh' clauses when buying airtime. It's working, slowly and surely.To get involved:
