Limbaugh: "It Might Be Said That I Have Succeeded In Stigmatizing" Feminism

Well, you know he has point there. How many times have we heard the term 'feminazi? FROM THE LEFT? How many times has feminism been stigmatized, marginialized and trivialized? Oh, and all that kittycat in-fighting we're apparently doing, I've read a number of articles on THAT; all the feminist shaming and nary a mention of the accomplishments. Well you know what? Fuck that and FUCK this asshole.

What we let THIS asswipe call the misogynists shots? Apparently so. Yea the left!

(Note; personally, listening to Limbaugh makes my ears bleed, but I'll link to the mediamatters site with the short clip of him diddling around with unreferenced statistics and claiming credit for 'stigmatizing' feminism. He also quotes the New York Times, I think it is, saying "Feminism is Dead", ----so no real need to listen if you don't want, I took one for the team here. Boy is he in for a surprise anyway.)

I find this so incredibly ironic it defies description

1. no he hasn't

he has simply highlighted what a sniveling coward he is - the only people who use the term FEMINAZI are the sick, sad fucks who listen to his garbage

2. I actually can't believe he brags about it

Lots of people use "feminazi "though, I've seen it here, I've heard it out in the community, I've seen it repeatedly in readers comments on articles. I've heard it for too often from people who should know better.

The idea of any term he started gaining popular acceptance makes my skin crawl.

5. the word feminist was hijacked by repukes in general, not just by that bloviating piece of shit

the same happened to the words ''liberal' and 'elite'

3. Yeah,sure--and I'm an astronaut. Let me post this (do read the whole thing) without further comment.

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/03/01/1187993/-One-Year-after-Limbaugh-s-Attack-2471-Lost-Sponsors-is-no-Fluke

As advertisers have bolted, their places have been filled in a variety of ways. Some stations have dead air for up to 4 minutes at a time. Some slots are filled with non-paying PSAs, although many of these organizations, including the Girl Scouts, Peace Corps, Hispanic Scholarship Fund, Army, and American Heart Association have demanded that their ads not be played--even at no financial cost to them--during Limbaugh's Show. And of course some new advertisers have come aboard--including a plethora of erectile dysfunction remedies and even a Nashville church led by a man who murdered a Sunday School teacher for getting paint on his boots.

It's hard to calculate StopRush's effect on Limbaugh's revenue. His parent company Premiere Radio Networks is private and not required to disclose financial information. However, Clear Channel Media Holdings (which owns Premiere) just reported losses of $424 million for 2012. Radio company Dial Global's stock is down 88% over the past year and the company has publicly acknowledged that the movement against Limbaugh has contributed to its financial woes. Cumulus Media CEO Lew Dickey has also admitted that the backlash has been a "drag" on his business.

StopRush has clearly changed the face of talk radio and is making Limbaugh's hatred much more expensive than it was before the attack on Sandra Fluke.

4. Good.

He still coined the word. It's still in popular usage, although it does make the sound of total dumbassness.



I hope he goes away, I used to keep a list of his sponsors so I knew what not to buy, what restaurants not to eat at, ect. I should take another look.

7. I have no patience at all for that peice of shit.

No desire to ever hear his sickening voice again.

And as for criticism of feminism, I do tire of it, but if its from women, and it's constructive criticism, then I'm ok with it.
