Fat … odious … vulgar … despicable …vile … feel free to add an adjective of your own!
Rush Limbaugh: A man whose very existence debases the human gene pool every day, seen here responding to a question about his IQ 🙂
Update: It turns out this scumbag actually provides a convenient listing on his website of the radio stations that carry his program across the nation. You can find that listing here.
After taking a look at that, I sent the following message to the station in my area that broadcasts the show: It’s disgrace that your radio station carries the Rush Limbaugh show; and I want you to know that I plan to avoid your station like a plague as long as you do. Limbaugh is a man who debases the human gene pool every time he opens his mouth. I’m not interested in hearing some abstract defense of the First Amendment because both of us know this isn’t about censorship at the end of the day. It’s about common decency and your willingness as a station to flout that in your effort to make a buck by stirring up bigotry and hated. How do you look at yourself in the mirror every morning?
I would encourage everyone to do something similar; at the very least, if you’re not willing to let the station in your area know how disgusted you are, I would encourage you to stop listening to any radio station that broadcasts such odious commentary. People like Limbaugh survive because advertisers and radio stations think they can court his bigoted audience without paying any price for that. If more people let them know there are consequences for pandering to bigots, they might start to think twice about that.
Get up! Get involved! Make a difference!
