Thank Dozens of Sponsors for deciding to #FlushRushNow
Your hard work for women is paying off. After only six days of organizing at least forty-five advertisers (updated 3/7 4:59pm)and two radio stations have dropped Rush Limbaugh’s show. Thank you for all of the emails, tweets, and facebook messages you sent to help make this happen!
Please take a moment now to thank the sponsors who have withdrawn their ads now because Limbaugh's supporters are attacking them. We must stand with these principled advertisers.
Last week, Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke – a Georgetown University Law student who dared to testify in Congress about birth control access – a “slut” and a “prostitute.” When Limbaugh attacked Sandra, he also demeaned the 99% of women (regardless of religion) who use contraceptives in their lifetimes. We have proven that women will not be silenced nor shamed!
The twenty-six companies who have stopped airing ads on Limbaugh's show include AOL, Allstate, John Deere, ProFlowers, Carbonite, Geico and Sears. On top of that, WBEC in Pittsfield, Massachusetts and KPUA in Hilo, Hawaii have decided to stop airing Limbaugh’s show.
These are huge victories, and they wouldn’t have happened without your support, and that of thousands of other FMF supporters.
