Prominent thug “feminists” urge people to encourage FCC to take Rush off the air

Will someone wake me up when this nightmare is over please?

A group of well-known feminists is calling for Rush Limbaugh’s head – and they want radio listeners to help fire him.

In an editorial posted on CNN.com Saturday, Gloria Steinem, Jane Fonda and Robin Morgan urged listeners to file complaints with the FCC in hopes that the government agency will yank the licenses of radio stations that air his show — and thus silence the controversial conservative.

Limbaugh’s syndicator, Clear Channel Communications, has backed the host since he called Sandra Fluke, a third-year Georgetown law student, a “slut” and “prostitute” over her support of insurance coverage of birth control.

“If Clear Channel won’t clean up its airways, then surely it’s time for the public to ask the FCC a basic question: Are the stations carrying Limbaugh’s show in fact using their licenses “in the public interest?” the trio wrote.

The editorial says it’s not about Limbaugh’s political views, but more about his “toxic hate speech” on the airwaves.

“For 20 years, Limbaugh has hidden behind the First Amendment, or else claimed he’s really ‘doing humor’ or ‘entertainment.’ He is indeed constitutionally entitled to his opinions, but he is not constitutionally entitled to the people’s airways,” they argue.

This is a meme that first started gaining momentum mid-last week when the so-called “Tea Party Truth Squad” posted a ridiculous but nonetheless chilling petition at the WH website urging the FCC to “take action” against Rush for his tirade against Democrat activist Sandra Fluke. The more “official” call by Fonda, Steinem, and Morgan follows calls by high-profile Democrats like Senator Carl Levin (D-MI) joining left-wing female veterans in demanding Rush be taken off of the Armed Forces Radio Network.

Outside of the brute tactics used to force ObamaCare down the throats of the American people, no one single issue has brought to light the thuggish, anti-Constitution mentality of the left since Obama has taken office more so than this one. The next time anyone on the left tries to brag and preach to you about how they are supposedly such staunch defenders of the First Amendment, please make sure to point them to this whole stupid manufactured “controversy.”

And then tell them to shove it.

    Cnn and the “Terrible Trio” of feminazis should be taken off the air in that case. Simply knowing they have the use of MY airwaves to promote their own personal version of supreme state control is very, very offensive to me, as are the backgrounds of all three bubblebrain dictator-wannabees.

    It’s hard for me to comment on this without censoring myself simply because that POS communist Fonda is once again opening her piehole.
    My dad is a decorated Vietnam fighter pilot and I still don’t think she understands the volume of disgust vets have for her. Illustrious free speech of all colors and stripes flow for this enemy collaborator and traitor. Many still think she escaped being put against a wall and shot.

    That’s my censored version.

    Well, if we are going to use these standards to remove Rush.. we need to first remove half of MSNBC personalities, Bill Maher, a few of the ladies from the View, and several late night talk show hosts. And that’s just the beginning….

  4. Drew the Infidel says:

    Rush Limbaugh is entitled to the same First Amendment protections as his detractors. And you or I for that matter.

    All that would happen is, Rush would go to satelite radio, and all of these AM stations would lose a ton of revenue from not having Rush on. The owners would then have to think about their programming or go out of business. Thus there would be less tax and fee revenue going to Treasury. Bravo, so lets raise taxes on the existing stations to cover the loses, because we want to stamp our feet and throw a tantrum over what someone said. Big Babies. Still waiting for the President to call Sarah Palin over the hundreds of bb brained comments made about her. – Lorica

    This seems to be a battle over which side can overplay its hand more than the others. To recap:

    1. Left overplays its hand by mandating free birth control for all, with no exception for faith-based institutions.
    2. Left doubles down by trotting out law student seeking career as activist.
    3. Right overplays its own hand by libeling and slandering said law student, giving her the national attention she wanted, and implicitly insulting every 30 year old unmarried woman in the country who probably isn’t a virgin.
    4. Left overplays its hand even more by seeking (and inevitably failing) to curtail the First Amendment.

    Right now, the left seems to be “winning” the hand-overplaying race. Please, God, let it stay that way.

  7. Carlos says:

    And, to Xrlq especially, but to all such tolerant spokespeople of the radical inclusionists, they won’t shut up about this until everyone in the country sees the wisdom of what they espouse and toe that specific line.

    And then the next. And then the next.

    Until everyone everywhere is just as tolerant and just as brave and just as smart as them because they think and act just like them. Then the waters will recede and natural disasters will disappear and the world will be the best of all possible worlds.

    What a bunch of gag hags.
