Hey Limbaugh' Bootlickers, can you smell what Tyson is cooking!!!!!!!!
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.
That's a good thing, he spews hate, lies and misinformation to 1 percent of the American population.
He's one of the worst this society has to offer.

Tick Tock!!!!!!!!!!

Could the end really be in sight? Is Rush Limbaugh now sounding like he’ll say anything — a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g — to try and press the ideological hot buttons to please his audience, even if it seems like he’s cleaerly straining? Has the whale truly jumped the shark?

Forbes’ Rick Ungar thinks so. At issue is CBS’s announcement that it has signed Stephen Colbert to replace the great David Letterman. The announcement seemingly made conservative talkers go ballistic — with Limbaugh (as usual) leading the pack and characterizing CBS’s choice as an attack on the “heartland.” Limbaugh’s riff has been a godsend to cartoonists.

His words got lots of new and old media play:“CBS has just declared war on the heartland of America,” Limbaugh announced.“No longer is comedy going to be a covert assault on traditional American values, conservatism. Now it’s just wide out in the open. What this hire means is a redefinition of what is funny, and a redefinition of what is comedy. They’re blowing up the 11:30 format… they hired a partisan, so-called comedian, to run a comedy show.”

transgender caller dialed up Rush Limbaugh and schooled him about his Antonin Scalia anti-gay views including mocking the transgender group by calling them "trannys." Rushbo knows full well how to use words in the most offensive fashion possible.

Catherine Taibi:

Rush Limbaugh got a long overdue lesson on Thursday when a transgender caller, Tina, smacked down his use of the word "tranny."

While attempting to defend himself against the caller's claim that he is anti-transgender rights, Limbaugh assured her that he has "been for trannies for a long time."

“Well actually, I did hear you using that term,” Tina said. "And a lot of us do find that to be rather offensive because of the way that it's been historically used."

"Tranny is offensive?" Rush responded. "I heard Alec Baldwin use the term."

Limbaugh then proceeded to explain that he thought the term was "cool and hip" because Baldwin used it in a New York Magazine article in February. To be clear, Baldwin wrote the article after coming under fire for alleged homophobic outburstsand the use of anti-gay slurs.

Tina stressed that the term is neither "cool" nor "hip" and is not appreciated by those genuinely fighting for transgender rights. Still, moments later, Limbaugh appeared to have learned nothing from the lesson.

"How do people know you're a tranny?" he asked.

Sigh.

Tick Tock!!!!!!!!!!

For well over two years, many people have been working online through social media to engage Rush Limbaugh's sponsors and encourage them to drop their sponsorship of Limbaugh's show. Their message is simple: When they sponsor Limbaugh, they sponsor hate.

They've been effective. They listen to the show, they take note of the sponsors, and they reach out and ask them whether they realize they're sponsoring hate radio. They encourage them to drop their sponsorships, but if the sponsor chooses not to, they will choose not to do business with that sponsor.

This is not a project undertaken by just a few people. This is a movement organized on Facebook and Twitter, dedicated to seeing hate radio become a dying breed. They believe that hate radio poisons our politics and creates an atmosphere of extremism.

This has Rush Limbaugh very worried. So worried, in fact, that he has chosen to unleash his hired crisis consultant, Brian Glicklich, on the ordinary people who are dedicated to continuing the effort.

On Tuesday, Glicklich mounted a media blitz against 10 people who are associated with the StopRush effort, and who chose to use pseudonyms online because they saw what happened to those of us who stepped up in the beginning and used our real names. He didn't just smear them. He published their full names, cities of residence, Facebook account names, and some "fun facts" about them.

He then shopped the Rush article to The Blaze, Daily Caller, Fox News' The Five, and more*. The first two helpfully assisted with publishing the information and getting the word out so that these ordinary people could be exposed to the special kind of harassment by Rush followers that was rained down on me and others in the earliest days of the StopRush effort.

Hate speech, you see, is something Rush and his followers value highly, and it is not to be opposed in any way. They fail to understand the nuance of the StopRush effort; that is, that we acknowledge Limbaugh's freedom to spew all the hate he wants over the airwaves, but we are not obligated to patronize the sponsors who pay to keep him there.

The sponsors are dropping that nitwit like a bad habit.
Limbaugh is an over paid wackjob whose daily diatribes are nothing but hatred.

There's a very good chance actor Idris Elba could take over the role of James Bond after Daniel Craig makes his exit. Last week, an email leaked in the Sony hacking scandal in which Sony Pictures Entertainment co-chairman Amy Pascal said she believes the "Luthor" star would be perfect for the role of 007.

The suggestion has long been rumored and received a lot of praise from Hollywood but controversial commentator Rush Limbaugh thinks it is a horrible idea. On Tuesday (Dec. 23) during his news program, Limbaugh told listeners that Elba shouldn't play Bond because he's black.

"James Bond is a total concept put together by Ian Fleming. He was white and Scottish. Period. That is who James Bond is," Limbaugh said. "But now Sony is suggesting that the next James Bond should be Idris Elba, a black Briton, rather than a white from Scotland. But that's not who James Bond is."

"I know it's racist to probably point this out," he added.

Before Limbaugh made his comments, Elba said he didn't "want to be called the first black James Bond" if he did land the part.

"Do you understand what I'm saying?" Elba said, according to ContactMusic.com . "Sean Connery wasn't the Scottish James Bond and Daniel Craig wasn't the blue-eyed James Bond. So if I played him, I don't want to be called the black James Bond."

Limbaugh is an embarrassment.
The reason he's lost hundreds of sponsors in the past 2 years and stations no longer carry his show anymore.

They just came out with a black remake of "Annie", so this comes as no surprise. Same thing happened with "The Wiz", a remake of the "Wizard of Oz" with a black cast starring Michael Jackson and Diana Ross. Also happened to "Cinderella" with Brandy in the title role. I wonder if Hollywood in the future will also cast white actors in remakes of "The Color Purple", "Coming to America", "42", or other films about black subjects? Somehow, I doubt it.

If it happens, so what who cares?
Things like that only matters to a racist.
Most people don't care about the ethnicity of actors, only their performance.

It won't happen, that's the point. Instead of coming up with fresh ideas, Hollywood recycles old ones. Why remake something that was great to begin with? There's no reason, other than pandering.

And as far as "racist" goes, look in the mirror.

The Washington Post provides an in-depth look today at the unanswered questions surrounding Scott Walker’s decision to drop out of Marquette University in 1990. The subject is sure to receive more attention as the Wisconsin governor seeks to become the first president since Harry Truman without a college degree, and right-wing shock jock Rush Limbaugh thinks he knows just the way for Walker to handle it.

“If I were Scott Walker, you know what I would say about college?” Limbaugh asked, before embarking on a tangent about his own decision to withdraw from college after “refusing to take ballroom dance taught by a lesbian drill sergeant.”

Finally, Limbaugh answered,“I left college because I didn’t want to be accused of rape someday.”

“Now he can’t say that, of course,” Limbaugh admitted.“But, I mean, just ram it right down their throats. They’re trying to create this ‘rape culture’ on the campus.… It seems like any man that goes to college could randomly be accused of committing rape.”

March 8, 2010; Rush Limbaugh stated on his radio show that if the ACA was still the law of the land in 5 years, he was leaving and moving to Costa Rica.
The ACA was signed in March, 2010 by President Obama.
5 years have now passed and it's 2015.
So Rush, WHEN ARE YOU LEAVING?

Like anything else, it takes time. There is no doubt about it. Fox is going down. Tick Tock!

And nothing is like sitting at the edge of a sofa and watching the dopes on Fox look like fools

everyday only to be followed up by fools on this forum believing the nonsense that Fox Spews.

Hopefully, you will keep dropping in and will finally wake up from that make believe world from
