Rush Limbaugh has a new headache on his hands: the National
Organization for Women is launching another campaign to get him off the
air.



The advocacy group announced its renewed efforts in an initiative called "Enough Rush" on Thursday. It is planning a protest on May 18, in addition to targeting local advertisers and radio stations.



NOW president Terry O'Neill told the Daily Caller
that she expects Limbaugh to react fiercely. "He is going to be whining
and calling us out about his First Amendment rights," she predicted.



NOW has been a long-time adversary of Limbaugh, who often refers to
it as the NAGs (National Association of Gals). It is making the new push
in the wake of the firestorm surrounding Rush Limbaugh's incendiary
comments about Sandra Fluke. Limbaugh had called Fluke, a Georgetown law
student, a "prostitute" and a "slut" after she testified on the need
for birth control. More than one hundred advertisers and radio
affiliates dropped his show as a result of his remarks.

    I despise Rush Limbaugh. He's a vile, hateful, disgusting hypocrite, a coward, and a phony.

    That being said, I would never want to deprive those who want (for whatever reason) to hear what he has to say of their right to hear him. I even listen in myself from time to time, for as long as I can stand it, just to know what he's up to. One thing I am careful about, though, is not supporting any of his sponsors.

    I don't like him, I don't listen to him, but if others do, who am I to say "don't listen?"
    Like I said before, I'm all for personal choice.

    I REALLY didn't want to choose that option Assassin! I meant to choose No!! LOL I'm big on 1st amendment, I think Rush is a jerk who shouldn't pollute the airwaves with his trash but it's our responsibility to not listen if we don't like it.

    Yes but do you agree that NOW has a right to protest him, and spend their own money on campaigns' against him? I don't support NOW either. They pick and choose who to defend. I still defend their right to protest him. Just as I support his right to be a filthy jerk.

    To an extent. These groups these days think just because they feel a certain way, gives them the right to push and push and push until they get their way. Protesting him, sharing with advertisers their frustrations and the reasons for them is great and should happen but the continuous pushing of the issues has got to stop.

    Good point... He doesn't. extremists like Rush usually never stop because there is never going to be a time when 100% of the people agree 100% of the time.... so I guess my request is also irrational.

    LOL!!! I know... I support his right to say what he wants, no matter how insane, but I also support NOW's Right to spend money attacking him trying to get his show canceled.

    If Rush no longer brings in the money they might do it.

    I personally think Rush's show will continue. Hate and all.

    First of all: I'M NOT AN OBAMA SUPPORTER PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!! I AM SO SICK OF BEING LABELED AS A SUPPORTER SIMPLY BECAUSE i DISAGREE WITH YOUR OPINION. STFU IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT, BECAUSE I'M DONE BEING NICE ON THIS ISSUE OF INACCURATE LABELS. I'm done yelling, I'm also done being nice.

    Rush limbaugh based his entire career on being hateful. There is a myriad of quotes on the net to back that up. I'm not wasting my time looking them up to prove it to you, defend.

    addressing this post: Any person who REFUSES to see the opposite side of the fence and at least understand what the other side is thinking is an extremist. He is far right politically and makes no apologizes for that fact, but his actions and words are arrogant and closed minded.

    this is totally untrue and false
    their is no such thing as the right wing
    Rush backs America/the Constitution/Israel and Western Free Civilization unlike liberal progressive democrats and obama who handed 147 million tax dollars to Jew Killing Women Rapist/Holocaust Denial muslim terrorist

    You say it's totally untrue?? do you even listen to the guy? You are completely blinded by what you WANT to believe, and refuse to see it. STILL don't see how that is MY problem, considering you don't want to learn anything that goes against what you claim is true.

    I'm not a far right conservative, or a far left liberal. I see both sides of the issues, I realize that both sides have good points and both have bad points. That is what makes me a moderate, I have the intelligence to realize that it's never going to be 100% one side or the other. It's a mix of both sides that this country needs.

    Right you are! Rush's show will continue no matter how much the left hates it. He has large audience and advertisers will take advantage of it regardless if they agree with Rush on politics or not. Some advertisers leave and others fill in the space made open. Rush briefly may take in less money but he is not in danger of going broke, much to the dismay of his detractors.
