Limbaugh launches 'Rush Babes' campaign10:11 pm - 05/09/2012
Rush Limbaugh is fighting back against the National Organization for Women, the progressive women's group that has been targeting local advertisers and affiliates in an effort to get the conservative talk show host off the air.
On his program today, Limbaugh announced a new National Organizaion for Rush Babes "dedicated to the millions of conservative women who know what they believe in: family, American Values, and not being told by Faux Feminist Groups how to think."
"Sometime later this month the Femi-Nazis are going to be working with Media Matters for America in kicking off some giant program, some coordinated plan to have me taken off the air, under the premise that women hate this program and that this program is an unfriendly environment for women, that this program laughs at, impugns, makes fun of women," Limbaugh said during today's program. "Of course, the flaw in this is that the National Organization for Women thinking that they speak for women. If there was ever a group that speaks for an almost infinitesimal minority of women, it's them."
NOW announced the launch of the "Enough Rush" campaign on April 19 to protest his attack on Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke, with protests planned for at least eight cities, including Washington, D.C., and New York City. Earlier this year, NOW president Terry O'Neill called on Clear Channel to "pull the plug" on Limbaugh's program.
O'Neill was traveling by plane this afternoon and unable to comment, but a spokesperson with NOW said she would provide comment later today.
