Boycott Rush Limbaugh’s Sponsors!

via Rhoda A, Daily Kos

[Editress’ Note: Yesterday we told you about Rush Limbaugh’s appalling comments about Sandra Fluke. Today, we ask that you boycott his show’s sponsors to help send a message. Us “sluts” need to stick together.]

UPDATE 3: According to ThinkProgress, a total of THIRTY sponsors have pulled their advertising from the Rush Limbaugh Show! THANK YOU to all who #StandWithSandra!

UPDATE 2: Two more sponsors have pulled their advertising from Rush Limbaugh’s show! THANK YOU to AOL and Tax Resolution Services!

UPDATE: As of Monday, March 5th seven sponsors have pulled their advertising from Rush Limbaugh’s show! THANK YOU to Carbonite, Citrix, LegalZoom, ProFlowers, Quicken Loans, Sleep Number, and Sleep Train!

NOTE: If anyone has any corrections or additions, please post and we’ll keep the list updated. (If anyone can endure listening to his show for a minute, maybe we can get more sponsors.) Copy the list and re-post anywhere that might do some good. Thank You. We can do this.

FCC COMPLAINT: If someone wants to take the lead, we can file a “class action” FCC Complaint on the grounds of “obscene or indecent programs,” (which includes profanity) and/or “unfair/biased” broadcasts. The FCC defines profanity as “including language so grossly offensive to members of the public who actually hear it as to amount to a nuisance.” Link is below.

  1. I do not listen to Rush Limbaugh. I would not subject myself to his filthy mouth and hatefulness but I am still subjected to it by listening to the news. This man must be taken of the air. He is vile.

    Posted by Carol | March 2, 2012, 2:05 PM
    • AGREED he should have been off the air a LONG-TIME AGO!!!! He probably didnt listen to her testimony. He sounds so uneducated and it is a reflection of his ignorance.

      Posted by Mbell | March 2, 2012, 5:34 PM
      • This is an idiotic thing to say. He repeated verbatim many of her statements. Ironically, since you obviously don’t listen to him – you din’t listen to any of his statements. Also, as a person who doesn’t listen to him – who are you to exclaim that he should have been off the air long ago. Does it ever occurr to you that having a 2 million plus audience might have anything to do with why he’s still on the air. No doubt, you would just say that we all must be “so uneducated” but then you would be wrong again. Do your homework, please.

    • I agree. His comments are a huge cause of concern for the general medical needs of women. Many of us use birth control not for contraceptive purposes but to help alleviate the uncontrollable pain during our menses. It is unfortunate if any ignorant people are buying into his statements that may prevent someone close to them from accessing the medical treatment they need. I don’t consume many of the advertisers products listed above but I will find a way to let them know they’re backing the wrong team – at least in this consumer’s eyes.

    • Another liberal with their head up their anal vent.

      Posted by BBob | March 5, 2012, 7:42 PM
    • If you don’t listen then who are you to say his has a “filthy mouth and hatefulness.” I have heard every single minute of his show for the past 2 years and this was honestly the first thing that offended me. Ironically, I never listened to him for years because I had HEARD about his supposed “filthy mouth and hatefulness.” When I looked – it wasn’t there. You have no right to judge anything you do not have direct knowledge of . I used to be just as wrong as you are now. I would like to one day appologise for my smearing his name and I am confident that he would forgive me because I think he would realise that sometimes people make mistakes. If everyone is so unwilling to accept his appology then what you are saying is that anytime you do anything wrong, you don’t deserve to be forgiven either. This is obviously all politically motivated because his show is so popular with Conservatives. (I’m a registered Democrat, byt the way). You and all the others might want to question why you have been lied to for so many years about this man. If you people really and truly hated hate speech you would have acted long ago on the huge list of people who spew constant filth on TV the radio and the Internet. At least do your homework and look it up.

      • Ok Mr Placement, I have read 3 of your responses and I can no longer keep from responding. Rush did not repeat her statements, she was talking about a friend of hers who needed birth control pills for a medical condition. I also suffered from such a condition until I had a hysterectomy. She wasn’t discussing her own sex life. Now let’s talk about being undereducated. Do you know the difference between an “s” and a “z”? How many P’s are there in apologize? You are the one who isn’t listening. You are the one who has no right to judge anyone. It’s obvious from your responses that you only heard RL’s rantings. Not only can you not spell, you can’t read either. Carol admitted that she doesn’t listen to his show but is subjected to his rants on the news, therefore she has listened to him. I think you are the one who doesn’t do his homework and never has. Stop drinking the Cool-Aid.

  5. limbaugh spreads poison and pure hate . it is disgusting his comments in regards to Ms. fluke. I will boycott his advertisers.

    Posted by G | March 2, 2012, 5:28 PM
    • Rush Limbaugh should never be allowed to get away with his despicable rants against a young, bright, college student. I will boycott any companies that continue to advertise with him. He should be fired from his show and never be allowed on radio or television again.

      Posted by Wendy | March 2, 2012, 7:38 PM
  6. I will boyscott any Companies who support Rush Limbaugh Radio Program.

    Posted by Shirley | March 2, 2012, 7:14 PM
  7. We are want to close dlown Rush Limbaugh Radio Program ASAP.

    Posted by Shirley | March 2, 2012, 7:16 PM
  8. We have received a number of calls and emails over the last couple of days regarding the erroneous belief that Smart & Final advertises with or supports Rush Limbaugh. The fact is that we do very little radio advertising (and none currently). When we do, we do not buy spots on any specific shows. We buy random blocks of time for short 15- or 30-second commercials. The commercials could run anywhere, anytime.

    We do not endorse Mr. Limbaugh, and to my knowledge he has never endorsed our stores.

    Posted by Randall Oliver, Director of Corporate Communications for Smart & Final | March 2, 2012, 7:18 PM
  9. I want Rush Limbaugh gone. Off the air for good. I know he is paid more than $400 million. Is this why he is still on the air? I have purchased flower from Pro Flowers for many years. I will stop until any ties to this idiot are broken. My daughter works fro Clear Channel. I am so offended by this man that I will do all I can to disrupt the Clear Channel brand in our area. Clear Channel will become a target also. This will not blow over.

    Posted by brutus | March 2, 2012, 7:46 PM
  10. By sponsoring RL you sponsor the most divisive figure in America as well as his bitter, hateful, vile and obscene comments. I have purchased products from many of his sponsors in the past but…not in the future. I want RL off the air permanently, and hope to see sponsorship for RL pulled. RL is a disgrace to himself and this country. Sponsors, don’t be a part of it! Take the high road! Do the right thing!

    Posted by Jean | March 2, 2012, 11:01 PM
  11. One has to wonder why he never had kids despite being married at least 3 times. Did they use birth control, or did his wives find him as repulsive as we do?

    Posted by Barb | March 2, 2012, 11:43 PM
  12. What a coincidence! I was just researching online backup systems and Carbonite was the lead contender. NOT ANYMORE! So glad I found out that they want to play the wrong side of politics. They won’t get my money!

    Are you listening, Carbonite??

    Posted by new_york_night | March 3, 2012, 2:43 AM
  13. Rush Limbaugh needs a judge to order him a psycho-sexual evaluation. He is a pervert. I will never support any of
    of his sponsers let alone his program. I have never or will never tune to his program. Because we watch the news we
    hear about this big bafoon. Spare us any more words coming from his sick mouth.

  14. I called all the sponsors on the RL boycott list this morning. I also called Clear Channel and the local radio station that aires RL’s show. I was impressed with Auto Zone’s response. They had their employees watch Ms. Fluke’s comments to the all male committee and RL’s filthy comments about her and the “feminazi’s!” They wanted their employees to be informed and understand why people would be calling in, angry. He read a prepared statement and said he personally was appalled at RL’s vile comments and that his company is just not like that. They are doing all they can to make sure their ads are not played on RL’s show. A couple of other companies read prepared statements denouncing RL and have taken action to stop their ads from airing on RL’s show! I would like to see a non-partisan group create a petition to remove RL and his hate mongering filth, from the air, permanently. American’s, Republican or Democrat, need to work to heal and unite this country. American women, we are a strong voice in this country. We purchase for ourselves, households and family. We vote. Any elected official who supports RL’s comments on this unfortunate situation, should not be re-elected. I have never called sponsors to let them know I would be boycotting their service or product because they sponsor an objectionable person. This was a vile, filthy, and perverted attack on all women, not just Ms. Fluke. In recent headlines, a man, was in prison for voyeurism, the same behavior that RL commanded of Ms. Fluke. Really? It is time to take a stand and say no more to RL.

  15. Angie’s List advertises on Limbaugh’s show vigorously. Pajama grams, and 1-800 flowers. Angie’s List was contacted by a number of people and they are flat refusing to stop their ads on his show.

    Posted by kww | March 3, 2012, 9:15 PM
  16. Do more then just call and complain to his advertisers. Stop buying their products. Make it clear that free speech is everyone’s rights but what you say can and does have consequences. Make you voice heard by boycotting all of Rush’s sponsors as well as Clear Channel’s

    Posted by Sak | March 3, 2012, 9:28 PM
    • Call the advertisers back that have removed their ads from RL’s show. I called 16 local RL advertisers today that had ads on RL at the beginning of the week that DID NOT have ads on Rl’s show today! 16! Isn’t that amazing! They were so happy to receive a polite thank you! I hope we can keep the momentum going and get him off the airways. I also hope to disallow his induction into the Hall of Famous Missourians. The thought of him there is appalling!

      Posted by Jean | March 8, 2012, 3:49 PM
  17. Sleep comfort was one of the first advertisers to pull their ads from his show.

    Posted by officekoolade | March 3, 2012, 9:44 PM
  18. hotwire.com has not sponsored Rush Limbaugh for 5 years.

    Posted by stephen voss | March 4, 2012, 2:07 AM
  19. Just to say even though the show is American, for America and made for American people a LOT of people worldwide are disgusted that a man (for the want of a better word) is able to conduct himself so gracelessly with such little understand and in a manner that only ever advocates ignorence, bigotry and sexisim.

    I would understand that the companies that are left would like to expand and have a worldwide presence (if they do not already) so why would you sponsor a person like Rush and risk tainting your own image.

    If you won’t pull the plug on this walking, talking assault on civility for moral reasons then do it for finacial.

    Thank you.

    • Did you all see the response from Clear Channel on msn? They understand that discussions on contraception can become heated, RL has the right to express his opinion as well as all of us. He did not comment on contraception but made a false, slanderous, indecent, ill-informed comment about Miss Fluke and in turn, all women. His perverted command for her to provide sex videos, of herself, to him, on the internet, crossed the line on human decency and hopefully is enough for the FCC to kick his sorry self off the airways. I am so ticked at Clear Channel. So much for one of my favorite radio stations and it’s sponsors! Let’s slam them with calls, emails, facebook comments, letters. I’ve never picketed anything in my life but I’m close! They totally ignored the point of the complaints and are totally rubbing their lack of accountability in our faces! Shame on Rush! Shame on Clear Channel!

  20. I’m boycotting any company that supports Rush Limbaugh, he is a disgrace!

    Posted by shiada galindo | March 5, 2012, 1:06 PM
  21. Get rid him of now. We do not need this kind of hate in our society. Lets get on with the big problems this country is going thru. Lets work together for the good of country and the American people. We have had enough of this wreckless comments. Women need to be in charge of their own health needs not the politicians.

    Posted by Francis Frederick Sr. | March 5, 2012, 1:15 PM
  22. Please note that Mission Pharmacal has not advertised on Mr. Limbaugh’s program for several years nor do they have any current endorsement agreements with him or his program.

  23. I am going to boycott Rush’s sponsors – the ones who pulled out.

    Posted by James Madison | March 5, 2012, 6:39 PM
  24. On the airways in New Orleans, WRNO-FM99.5 proudly brands and markets itself as. “99.5 RUSH RADIO. “RUSH RADIO” is a constant prelude to all of the station’s feature segments; RUSH RADIO Traffic, RUSH RADIO News, RUSH RADIO Weather. One could deduce that WRNO’s personal polices are in strict alignment with Mr. Limbaugh’s vile, careless, vulgar form of “BULLY RADIO.” This “RUSH RADIO” branding is not unique to New Orleans, WRNO. Many other Clear Channel stations have assumed this brand. Only boycotting Mr. Limbaugh’s direct advertisers does very little when the purveyors of such vile and divisive programming go unscathed. Consumers should be wary of “Foxes running the hen house.” If gun is fired, killing someone, is the gun the sole culprit, or should you consider including the person pulling the triger?

  25. Last night it was announced in Missouri that Rush Limbaugh will be inducted into the Hall of Famous Missourians in our state capital. I am sick about this! I listened to RL’s show (only for 1 hr., thank you Cardinal baseball for preempting the last 2 hours!) yesterday and listed all the local sponsors. Most local sponsors were reeling from all the calls. They were very apologetic and were working with KMOX to make sure their ads did not appear on RL’s hate show. Oreck returned my call and profusely apologized and said they are working to remove their ads from RL. When the late news announced the bust of rl going into our state house, I knew I would be on the phone and internet today to stop this from happening and continue to call sponsors. Missouri school children visit this Hall of Fame and as a retired teacher it just goes against everything I believe. Rush is the biggest bully….we work to help students be kind to each other and not be bullies. Rush is the most divisive figure in America….we teach students to work together, teamwork, a skill needed in today’s American workforce. Rush is a racist….we work with students to celebrate each other and their cultures. Rush hates women….we teach students to respect each other, male and female. Rush is a drug addict…..we DARE to teach kids to stay away from drugs. Rush’s comments last week were derogatory sexual comments, ignorant of the facts of the issue to be commented on……we teach students to run away, tell a safe adult. Why put this man in the state capital? He’s made tons of money for all these behaviors? He is a loud mouth demon? What POSITIVE character traits does this man have to offer? NONE! What a disgrace.

    Posted by Jean | March 6, 2012, 10:52 AM
  26. We have to keep the flush-rush momentum rolling. This must stay in the news. How? Put pressure on advertisers who buy ad air time on the clear channel stations, even though they are not ran during the limbaugh time slot.

    Do this with an occupy type protest at or near these stations. Use signs showing the local advertisers supporting the limbaugh show. Publish lists of local business’ who support the local station. Call them and ask them to buy ads with other stations.

    Posted by d. foster | March 6, 2012, 1:28 PM
  27. I called 21 local advertisers after the first hour of RL’s show today. Listening to him is just disgusting and a definite downer. He has definitely been waging a war on women….today, more of the same. It really takes 3-4 hours a day to do this, plus I called my state representative and Missouri Speaker of the House to protest RL being inducted into the Hall of Famous Missourians. I hope we can overturn this guy’s decision. I also called CBS locally and in New York today to ask them to pull RL from their stations. One local advertiser I called returned my call today. It was their director of marketing and he has been working the last 2 days with KMOX radio’s marketing dept. He took 70 affiliates ads on RL off today. He thanked me for my call and my concern. It’s so nice to hear from such nice, decent people. Another local company called me back and they too have removed their adds. He also was very nice. It’s nice to have some positive response. Only 3 have been negative but they did thank me for being polite when I called. I was disappointed this story was not still in the news today. With Super Tuesday and big news locally…..complaints about RL were cut. I work tomorrow so I will not be able to fight the fight for human decency and removing RL from the airways tomorrow. I’ll be back at it Thursday.

  28. I will boycott the boycotters! I know freedom of speach is meaningless to some and a hypothetical to others, but it is concrete in our constitution as freedom of religion, BTY whisked aside and replaced by the nonsensical “war on women” campaigne.
