Stop Rush and Flush Rush are growing; Rush Limbaugh's die-hard national advertisers are peeling away

Stop Rush and Flush Rush are growing; Rush Limbaugh's die-hard national advertisers are peeling away

Stop Rush is growing, dramatically increasing its presence on Twitter.

The Flush Rush group on Facebook has added several thousand members, just since the November election. And Flush Rush is just one of more than a dozen such groups on Facebook alone. Other groups on Daily Kos, Reddit, Democratic Underground, and numerous other social media platforms also contribute to the cause.

All are welcome to use the Stop Rush database at http://stoprush.net, which has recorded 40,000 reports on nearly 5,400 companies that have at one time or another advertised on the Rush Limbaugh Show.

When Coca-cola and Arby's decided a few months ago to no longer support ALEC and Rush Limbaugh (respectively), they encountered a nasty backlash from conservatives. In stead of politely registering disagreement with corporate decisions about advertising, conservatives launched a campaign of slander and defamation, throwing around lingo such as "fascist", "cop killer", "collusion", "weaklings", and "anti-freedom". For a time Arby's blocked the most zealous of the conservative tweeters.

The raucous rancor on the right seemed more a cause for celebration on conservative websites, than a cause for concern. Rather than attempting to persuade and influence corporate policy, many right wingers seemed interested only in scoring twitterverse points for the most obnoxious tweets.

1. Good, let them devour one another . . .

With luck, nothing left but bones and scraps of clothing.

And a few empty pill bottles . . .

2. FRAUD

Rush Limbaugh and friends, by tricking millions into voting Republican, have committed massive election fraud. I know of no "patriotic" conservatives that have spoken out about this undermining of democracy in America.
