Skip to comments.Gag order: Liberal activists, unable to win the argument against Rush, try to silence him instead

Decent folks who believe in tolerance and equality are no longer powerless against Limbaughs efforts to spread intolerance on the radio. StopRush is making a major impact by convincing advertisers on this show to withdraw their ads and with your help we can do even more. Just a few e-mails, tweets or Facebook messages a week to Limbaughs advertisers can go a long way toward making hatred less profitable. It is our collective voice that makes us strong. DailyKos.com, promoting the StopRush campaign.
Absolutely right! If you believe in tolerance and equality, the thing you really need to do is . . . shut other people up.
Its only decent. If you believe in diversity, eliminate anyone who doesnt fit the mold, and if you think hate speech is bad, build a campaign of organized loathing.
The Daily Kos website displays an American flag (sort of its orangey, like the red and yellow flag of some international workers collective after its been put through the washing machine too many times). Its a wonder that the flag doesnt get up and slink off the screen in embarrassment.
Because this country has a long, proud history of freedom to piss people off.
The StopRush movement, started by an employee of the liberal group Media Matters, brags that it has been successful in driving advertisers away from The Rush Limbaugh Show, which for 25 years has delighted, infuriated, tickled and provoked its radio listeners by the millions.....

Good Idea, you morooooons. Hey..... go ask Carbonite how that’s working out for them? ROFLMAO
Rush has a waiting list of advertisers. Each show only has so many minutes to sell.
Any advertisers who leave will be replaced and the new advertisers will prosper and continue advertising.
Lies is their tool. It the only thing they have.
Liberals NEVER believed in tolerance or free speech.
They may have the advantage of having a ton of free time on their hands, but we have the majority of rational true Americans and with our might, we can use the internet in our advantage to choke the libs back to their roach infested nests.
Isn’t that the truth? To stop intolerance, be intolerant. I am not a Rush fan by any stretch of the imagination. But I do not want him silenced. I simply do not listen. Everyone has that same right. The answer is not to prevent those who do like him from having the opportunity to have access to his show. Spoiled brats!
Sometimes by direct competitors: Carbonite by I-Drive, Pro Flowers by 1-800-FLOWERS, and so on. So not only does walking away hurt you, it may well boost your competition.
The fact is that productive Americans are the ones with more disposable income, and we are more thoughtful on how we spend that money. If I was a Rush advertiser, I would make sure these people put me on their list - I could be the next Chik-fil-A. [Note: CFA's lines are still longer than before the freaks tried to boycott them, even with expanded staff.]
Free speech — to the left — has always meant shouting down opposing viewpoints.
I don’t listen to ads by the takers anyway.
And yet Rush’s show seems to have more commercials than ever before. Go figure.
That little commie fag, Moulitsas, can’t stand the competition. In true commie fashion, that light in the loafers, piece of maggot **** needs to destroy rather than compete. Typical commie tactics.
They’ve been trying to silence Rush for 25 years now.
Rush was good back in the day, but he’s like being gummed by a toothless pitbull now. Michael Savage rips the left a new anal orafice with creative and insightful analysis daily, but they pretend he doesn’t exist. Rush is 10AM-1PM mountain standard time cubicle-friendly noise with lots of advertisements.
Media Matters...hmmmm. Isn’t Hitlary Clinton a proud supporter?
“go ask Carbonite how thats working out for them?”
I was one who dropped Carbonite when they dumped Rush.
I now use ZipCloud. I do not know their politics and do not care, as long as they keep it to themselves.
They personify intolerance by demanding everyone not only agree with them that homosexuals are "normal," that homosexual union legalization will be called "marriage," and that anyone that disagrees with that must be stopped, whatever it takes!
Of course they do - just not for people who disagree with them.
So THEY are going to show how TOLERANT they are by trying to shut Rush down?
Advertisers look for audience wherever they can.
Business isn’t about conscience. It’s about profit, revenue and market share. Anything that undermines that mission is irrelevant or an obstacle.
The liberal mindset doesn’t exist without 501.c status.
We should start suing the leftist organizations. Force them to spend money to defend themselves.
Reagan bankrupted the soviets. He gave us the formula for beating back the left.
Badge of honor!
Leftists slways revert to silencing critics.
I was banned from a site. Every Conservative should expect censorship.
Liberal definition of free speech;
“Say or do anything you want in accordance with liberal positions with bravado and gusto while bravely having no fear of any consequential reactions or argument”
Conservative Definition of free speech;
“Say or do anything you want as long as it does not infringe on the rights or present personal danger to others. Suffer the consequences and reactions to your exercise of free speech.”
Freedom of speech must never be suppressed, except for criticism directed at minorities, non-Christian religions, homosexuals, communists, illegal aliens, and other constituencies of the Democrat party
There’s nothing in the least “fair” about the radicals approach to “free” speech.
A class claiming to be oppressed arrogates to itself rights that it has no intention of sharing, based on the lie that such rights were commonly denied it in the past and hence may be legitimately be denied by it to others.
One law for everybody has no place in this Balkanized little political delusion.
The Democrat Party is a criminal enterprise tenuously held together by the preponderance of ignorance and the threat of violence.
Never underestimate the ability of a liberal to deny reality and attempt to change the rules to do so.
what is it Rush always says before a break?????
We have to go to an obscene profit break, or something similar. I totally agree. Keep your snooty lefty comments to yourselves. If Rush has a sponsor, he always says he checks out their product worthiness.
I understand that Carbonite tried to get back on air and Rush said no thanks. Rush is right, you know. Amusing.
Modern liberals are a narrow minded bunch of bigots... Kyle Smith understands... Great post 2nd - thanks.
In true commie fashion, that light in the loafers, piece of maggot **** needs to destroy rather than compete.
Please don't take this personally, FlingWingFlyer, but the proper term is "maggot obama."

Rush is right—the left ALWAYS lets you know who they fear. And they FEAR RUSH LIMBAUGH, big time. And guess what SpaceBar, they don’t tell you who they fear by a tactic where “they pretend he doesn’t exist”.
I’m always open to corrections and I agree, you’re right.
The Daily Kos is supported and is run by trash of no character and integrity—people who support child molesters and the right of rapists to fair trials and who support the killing of babies. May the Lord God drop judgment on them.
Rush made over $360,000,000 in ad revenue. He is down about $6,000,000. That’s a pretty good haul, even being down 3%.
These libtards probably believe that “Two if by Tea” will cancel advertising on Rush if they just squeal a little.
Now that’s no chump change, is it? Good on him.
These libtards probably believe that Two if by Tea will cancel advertising on Rush if they just squeal a little.
Now that is DOUBLE funny. BTW.... it is EXCELLENT Tea. ElRushbo does have a good product there. I serve it to my friends, give it as gifts, too. It would be worth the $$$ to ship a case to a lefty and wait for their heads to explode.
ROTFL!! They’ve been trying to shut Rush down for almost 25 years, ever since his show began on national radio.
I’m going to take a wild guess that the man in the photo is NOT a 747 captain;)
It shows Democrats and their supporters won’t have an honest discussion in the light of truth.
” It would be worth the $$$ to ship a case to a lefty and wait for their heads to explode.”
I got some and gave it to lefty friends at Christmas. They agreed it was exceptional tea; their heads remain up their butts though.
Threw away my SleepTrain after what Dale did 2 Rush.
“...choke the libs back to their roach infested nests.”
Douse them good with boric acid...
Friend, Michael Savage competes in a fair and free market with all the rest of the talkers. If the public thought he was better than Rush, he would have eclipsed him long ago.
I like the way Kyle writes. I sense a touch of Steyn.
Rush is as relevant and as incisive as ever.
Mister Savage (aka Weiner) is a certifiable lunatic, who is given to fly off in incoherent rants.
how dare you disagree with the left, you must be silenced!
I have never heard anyone say Savage turned their political opionion around, but I have a number say Rush changed their world view starting with my brother.
Rush has done more than anyone and he is still the most thoughful commentator out there.
Remember, you can always tell who is getting under the skin of the liberals and having the biggest impact by the way and frequency of who they attack. Rush has been a target of every liberal politician for years and he is the voice of true conservatism in every matter, IMHO.
There is NO saving some people from themselves on being a Dem. Zippy could be on camera doing harm and some will excuse him.
BTW, thank you for your many years of military service to this great nation!
Who remembers when they first heard Rush and what your reaction was?
I do. MR. WW and I were in the car and I said.... He says what WE think!
Dittos from the frozen tundra. (ok, frost last night)
