Every Day Is A Good Day To Protest Rush Limbaugh, Says NOW

Let’s take a trip down memory lane: Do you remember that time conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh declared Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” for lobbying for more affordable contraception? You know, before that whole Hilary Rosen/Ann Romney thing exploded all over our laptop screens and television sets? It’s rather hard to keep track of all the media fights these days, but I’ll remind you that the Fluke/Limbaugh debacle seemed to last for weeks, but now that it’s more of a “haha, remember that?” past time than an up-to-the-minute scandal, the National Organization for Women (NOW) has decided to reignite the fire on Limbaugh and protest him some more.
The women’s rights group told The Daily Caller that they’re setting out to bring Limbaugh down again with their “Enough Rush” movement, adding that they’re gathering chapters to rally against the right-leaning public figure on May 18.
“He is going to be whining and calling us out about his First Amendment rights,” NOW president Terry O’Neill told the online publication about how she thinks Limbaugh will respond to their campaign. “There is nothing in the Constitution that says Rush Limbaugh gets $38 million a year for being on a radio show.”
Limbaugh, who refers to the group as the National Association of Gals (NAG), may very well shed light on their efforts during one of his upcoming broadcasts, but this seems like a calculated attempted to rehash old news and anti-Limbaugh rhetoric. The Stop Rush campaign certainly didn’t stop him from continuing to hit airwaves, and we’re all pretty aware that he has been spewing hateful comments about females for decades. NOW may be trying to egg him on, but they’re not going to get anywhere by coasting off his Fluke remarks, for which he apologized last month.
