Whitehouse.gov petition to take Limbaugh OFF Armed Forced Radio! LINK FIXED

Last edited Sun Mar 4, 2012, 01:49 PM - Edit history (2)

Sec. Panetta, Get Rush Limbaugh Off Armed Forces Radio NOW! No tax money for abusive, divisive, insulting language.

It is not bad enough that he provides partisan blather, that he demeans our President.

He has regularly demeaned women.

His remarks this week were well beyond the pale of what should be broadcast to our military and their families, supported with our tax dollars.

We have a moral objection to our tax dollars being used for such a purpose.

You should move immediately to cancel any further broadcast through government facilities of his venom.

There is no excuse for the US Government, in any capacity, giving this man an audience.

It is an insult to the honorable men and women who serve this nation.

Debra Johnson
about 4 hours ago


I will boycott any organization who pushes to have Rush Limbaugh taken off the air! I have notified all my friends and organizations of these ridiculous petitions as well! Just because the Sec of Defense works for a Radical Leftist President, he needs to be reminded most in the military could care less what Obama thinks and they all love Limbaugh! The one thing they do know for sure is that Democrats hate the military and especially since this nasty radical Socialist Obama came into office!


Thanks for signing Debra!

41. So Limbaugh gets a million dollar government subsidy

in the form of millions of taxpayer subsidized listeners for his advertisers, but he's complaining about "government funded" birth control--which of course is a distortion of the issue anyway.

A morbidly obese man making jokes about the first lady's weight. A drug abuser demanding that drug addicts be tossed in prison. And a man milking millions in government sponsored ad revenue, insulting the very idea that some aspect of health care should be subsidized (and again, that isn't even the issue--it's health insurers who provide the service, not government).

This man is a cross between Elmer Gantry and Joseph McCarthy. The perfect face of the GOP.

Oh, and I signed the petition. Spread the word--now's the time to hit this pitiful excuse where it hurts--his wallet.

46. angelajean on Daily Kos asked that and didn't find the info

The American Forces Network - Are Taxpayer Dollars Funding Rush Limbaugh?

Well, it seems that money must be exchanging hands somewhere otherwise why would the American Armed Forces be listed as a sponsor? I am not sure if AFN is buying advertising or just buying the show but either way, they are spending taxpayer money to do so. And while I don't mind it being spent on political commentary in the name of equal time to both sides, I draw the line at what Limbaugh is doing. It isn't political commentary.

Guess what that means for us? It means if we want AFN to stop spending money on the Rush Limbaugh show, our voices need to be heard. Contacting AFN might help, but it could be limited. Contacting the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs via the DoD might help, but it would probably be limited. The best people to contact are those with direct connections to high offices in the DoD, your Congressman and your Senators.

<SNIP>

When a military office receives a question from a Congressman or a Senator, it triggers a special reaction... it's like the biggest, squeakiest wheel in the entire USA... it's called a Congressional Inquiry. Military folks don't like those. The more Congressman that call the DoD, the better!
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/03/02/1070289/-The-American-Forces-Network-Are-Taxpayer-Dollars-Funding-Rush-Limbaugh-


So we ALL need to write our congressmen and women and ask them why Rush is still allowed on AFN.

70. I just want to point out

that it's not just direct taxpayer dollars going to Rush to either sponsor or pay for his programming.

It's the fact that his advertisers are willing to pay more to sponsor his program knowing that millions of armed forces personnel are a part of his audience. That audience is provided to him courtesy of the taxpayers. Thus, the taxpayers are boosting his ratings, thus boosting his ad revenue.

Either way you look at this, it sucks, and it needs to be changed.

114. AFN didn't use to broadcast ads

but I believe this changed under the Bush administration. Not all ads are repeated, but I know that the University of Phoenix (private-for-profit rip-off of a school) runs ads on AFN, and there are probably others as well.

...I wouldn't listen at all but that my job involves test driving vehicles, and often talk radio is on. How many times I've heard rants against government or the president, followed by break for public service announcements paid for by the government.

Frankly I don't see a hell of a lot of difference in the two. His type of
extremism, hate and lies does not belong on Armed Forces Radio.

Unfortunately, their listening habits say otherwise. They're the ones we need to convince; they listen to the Pig in droves and by getting him removed from AFR we're actually the ones who are doing the insulting.

We need to show them how destructive he is, to EVERY listener.

Right now it reads
Signatures needed by April 03, 2012 to reach goal of 25,000: 19,989

Total signatures on this petition: 5,011

But when I signed on I was in the 800s I think. And the petition just started today, so that's 5000 signatures in less than 24 hours!

86. Can we get them to take off Ed Schultz while we're at it?

Considering that partisan blather is partisan blather whichever side it's on and Schultz isn't exactly squeaky clean on any charges of misogyny (I don't care much for Laura Ingraham but calling her a "slut" is a little over the top).

As it is if AFN ditched Limbaugh they'd probably replace him with Hannity, or Neal Boortz, or someone just as odious; a better solution than just asking that they get rid of Limbaugh is that they end partisan political talk radio altogether.

120. It is legitimate - anyone can make a petition on the WhiteHouse.gov site

Try this -

Go to whitehouse.gov (I am deliberately not making this an active link - if you suspect this is not the White House site, search for that and start from the front page of what you find.)

Click on the We the People link on the right column

Click the Find a Petition and search for Rush Limbaugh

There are more than one petitions for getting Rush Limbaugh off the air, but they are all on the WhiteHouse.gov site.

If you want to make your own petition there, use the first two steps and click on Start a Petition.

Petition calls for Limbaugh show to stay on military radio
By Jonathan Easley - 03/13/12 08:28 AM ET

Supporters of Rush Limbaugh have initiated a counter-petition on the White House’s public petition website to keep the controversial conservative talk-radio host on the Armed Forces Network radio station, reports Military Times.

<SNIP>

The pro-Limbaugh counter-petition, which was only created on Sunday, presently has 455 of the 25,000 necessary signatures.
