35. republican senators need to see protests. we can't accept the 'let the voters decide' bullshit

he needs to be convicted and removed, the planet doesn't have time and putin/gop is gearing up all sorts of interference.

the problem is lumbaugh and his dittohead/teabag/trumper army. but dems can destroy rw radio without a lot of activism- GOP reps and senators know how important republican talk radio is to the party and their own reelections and seeing protests at these 87 universities will not only scare the crap out of them, it will push them to vote against trump.

260 or over 40% of limbaugh's 600 radio stations depend on those schools to keep broadcasting sports on them to attract advertising. if one university starts the process of looking for apolitical alternatives others will follow. CU may have already done that - the loudest radio station in the Colorado state area demoted lumbaugh to a lesser station and it may have been relative to CU activists. if that's why he was demoted and media exposes it, other unis will do the same. republicans will freak out and get more media to it. boycotts, made much easier thanks to artificial intelligence, will loom. the ad industry wants those radio stations' ears and will have to start asking clients if they really want to support trump or risk losing those who don't. many of them have been bundled onto those stations, for discounts and will not say yes. market demand will destroy the radio monopoly and trump's major intimidator.

if republican politicians think the end of RW radio is comming they going to dump trump to try to stay with that part of the republican base and independents who are not the rabid and vastly overestimated hardcore trump dittoheads that believe everything lumbaugh says.
