Women Protest to get Rush Limbaugh off the Radio

Source: KOMU

The demonstration is not the first time Columbia Area NOW has spoke out against the controversial radio host. Limbaugh's program, which airs weekdays at 11 a.m. and weekends at 12 p.m. has faced local and national criticism.

On March 19, the organization hand delivered 508 toilet paper rolls to the state capitol after House Speaker Steven Tilley, R-Perryville announced that Limbaugh would be receiving a honorary bust. They called the protest "Flush Rush

15. They are giving it a good try

One day he will have to be removed.

That will be one happy day ~ how the Rethugs can view them as their "leader" is way beyond me.

6. Please, tell me you didn't purchase Koch Industires Georgia Pacific produced toilet paper

7. And here I was thinking that everybody forgot about OxyRush.

He deserves to get kicked off the air for everything he's done, but unfortunately I think the efforts of the protestors are futile. They'll likely end up not firing him because, as I've stated before, he's the Republican Party's Tom Brady. Without him, they're weak.

8. Rush is too dangerous to be kept around

 

Even if he is taken off the air, he'll always find a way back. And that scares me.

14. Has there ever been a more polarizing "entertainer" taking up so much air time?

And he's still on the air.

17. Wouldn't it have great if this had happened 30 years ago.

It's great that it's happening now, too.

Why so slow, America? Or am I just hyperactive?
