1. Easiest boycott ever

I don't use any of those companies, and haven't even heard of most of them. Really, he can't do better than that?

Also, incidentally, I read this morning that Sleep Train Mattress has dropped their sponsorship, so no need to boycott them.

2. I have occasion to use a auto parts store in my life

so when I first read this list a few months ago and it had autozone on there I sent them an email voicing my disdain with them for sponsoring rush the pedoboy and within minutes I got a reply back from autozone that they do not buy advertisement on rush's show and if in fact I had heard a commercial for autozone on his show it was the stations mistake, of course I've never listened to the freak so I didn't know for sure. I suggest that maybe someone check this list out before we go boycotting anyone. I know what I was told and if I didn't get so many emails to where I have to delete them from time to time I'd cut and paste the reply I got from autozone for you.

ETA: I was assured that the company didn't agree with anything that rush has to say

4. Thats the response others have gotten from Autozone as well. But their ads always run on PedoRush's


time slot. Even if they are only buying ads from the local stations and not from the actual Rush show, the ads are conspicuously placed in Rush's time slot and thats practically the same as supporting him IMO.

I worked for Autozone for 6 months. They employ an army of lawyers and lobbyists.

6. There's always O'Reilly's, Pep Boys, Napa, and Advance

 

It's not like you can't find a competitor to patronize.

9. Tell the local managers (if they even care)

And don't give to non-profits organizations that run PSAs during his show. Stations probably use PSAs as tax deductions.

8. A lot of advertiers by time in bulk on local stations

Ad probably ran during a local station break. They don't know or care when the ads run.

12. MSNBC had a short bit saying Sleep Train is pulling their advertisements!

So it's already having an effect.

13. Since Bain owns Clear Channel

and Romney is always touting his experience at Bain, he should be under particular pressure to denounce Rush.

I know he won't, but it'll be fun trying to see him squirm his way out of that one.
