Rep. Speier calls for boycott of Limbaugh sponsors

Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) on Thursday said that if the sponsors of Rush Limbaugh’s radio show continued to support his “hate mongering” then women should boycott those companies.

“I rise this morning to say to Rush Limbaugh, shame on you,” she said on the House floor. “Shame on you for being the hatemonger that you are. Shame on you for being misogynistic.”

Limbaugh on Wednesday called Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke a “prostitute” and a “slut” because of her testimony in Congress about contraception.

“So I say to the women in this country, do something about this,” she continued. “I say to the women of this country, ask Century 21, Quicken Loans, Legal Zoom, and Sleep Number to stop supporting the hate mongering of Rush Limbaugh and if they do not do that, then I ask them to boycott those companies.”

We used pressure on advertisers to get Glenn Beck out of mainstream media, why can't we do it with Rush?

Here is a list of Limbaugh sponsors current as of Jan. 2011 (It may include some companies who are no longer sponsors. I Googled and couldn't find a more recent one.): http://www.democraticunderground.com/1002369972 (h/t trueblue2007)
