I was feeling pretty grim this morning, but the news of Tyson Foods dumping their advertisement from the Rush Limburger show just made my day. I'm happy now. I'm happy that we still have corporations that ware willing to STAND UP to HATE radio. I'm happy that corporations like Tyson Foods see the hate from the conservative wing as antithetical to their own corporate policy. We know where the racism comes from. We know who is truly dividing America. And corporations see it too. You won't be seeing THIS news item on Breitbart...nosirree...

$33bn Tyson Foods Removes Ads from Rush Limbaugh
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/03/13/1284... ?

The hits keep coming for The Flush Rush Facebook community.

Today activists received word from Tyson Foods that the company was working to remove its ads from the Rush Limbaugh Show--and indeed from political talk in general:

Tyson foods last year had revenue of $33 billion and ranks as the world's second largest food production company and largest producer of meat.
The company has apparently decided it's not worth the risk to hitch its brand and reputation to the reckless and bigoted mouth of Tea Party radio host Rush Limbaugh.

Decent folks who believe in tolerance and equality are no longer powerless against Rush Limbaugh's 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 emails, tweets, or Facebook messages a week to Limbaugh's advertisers can go a long way toward making hatred less profitable. It is our collective voice that makes us strong.

Want to do something hold Limbaugh accountable?

Every time a sponsor drops Limbaugh, the sponsor suffers.

Obviously schererezade (aka buttssexx_byproduct eater) doesn't listen to Rush to realize that Tyson doesn't advertize there.
And that Tom Brokaw does.
Typical stupidity of the progressive filth.

I was surprised to find Rush is still around. But I looked it up and yes - he's on a 2nd-rate weak signal station in my area. Guess I'll have to listen and see what all the hub-bub is about.

Well, they do. They also inject them with antibiotics and steroids. Nasty. From what I've heard Tyson has always been a big old supporter of the Dems and was totally in bed with the Clintons. I never heard Limbaugh's radio show.

The democratic party is on their way out with a bad reputation following them and the Repubs are in disarray. A third party may very well emerge. The next decade is critical to US's survival in every venue.

Anybody that wants to know about Tyson, watch the movie called "Food Inc". It tells the story about them and others too. What's going on now is just pure corporate greed.

Or just goggle 'bill cinton tyson chicken.' They have a plant in slower, lower DE. My stepdaughter and I always threaten to release the chickens.:-) I will try to get the movie though. Thanks, Dave.

Tyson is a major employer of illegals, FWIW. They also loved Bill Clinton back in the day, both being from Arkansas

They treat chickens poorly.

Hey, why are there so many blacks on commercials. Did their percent jump to 80% of the population? Don't like the thought of Obama controlling the commercial industry. Everything he touches, is in the crapper.

Maybe he is trying to change perception, like they did with Michelle.

It;s all part of the "magic knee-grow" campaign. In movies like the Terminator sequel they are scientists, and in Legend they are a biologist, and in all other movies they are gracious victims. In reality they are criminal parasites who gang rape pregnant women, rape 80 year olds, beat WW2 vets, and grift their way to preznint.

Expect them to be portrayed as even more "magical" as geneticists start proving more and more differences between the gene pool that birthed modernity and that which foraged in the jungle.

Because Latins only watch Univision and Telemundo

The average black watches more TV than the average white

Old people watch the most TV, that's why many ads off of the big channels are targeted towards them

Putting more minorities in ads also boosts sales with white liberals, perhaps

It's a damn shame to read just how ignorant of African people you are...and sad also. You'll pass on from this life one day in complete and utter stupidity having never done any basic research about the Black people you so despise and abhor. It's alright though, I wouldn't expect a imbecilic, backwards, genetically recessive chimp like you to have any knowledge other than how to fish termites out of a mud mound with a blade of dried grass. And that's actually giving you a compliment!

What! Such a contradiction there, Karl. I know for certain you believe most Blacks are out in the streets robbing good, hard working white folks or selling drugs on the corner and shooting at anyone who dares walk by. Now you're saying they're sitting in front of a television most of the day! Well, what is it, Karl? Can't be both!

All huge legacy 50,000 watt stations.
WHAS Louisville is a 50K watt station too and has carried Rush for years.

I don't think Rush has any trouble finding sponsors. It would be a libs dream to see his demise but that isn't going to happen.

Amazing that opposite views are called "Hate".
