7 Women Show Up To Protest Rush For NOW

From the Daily Caller:

Seven women protest Rush for NOW’s big day of protest

By Caroline May

Seven women participated in the National Organization for Women’s day of protest against Rush Limbaugh in front of Limbaugh’s D.C. affiliate WMAL, Friday.

NOW’s national protest day had been in the works since April 19, when the women’s advocacy group launched their “Enough Rush” campaign.

Well, you can’t slap these things together overnight, you know.

Still this could indicate they don’t quite have their fingers on the pulse of the American woman. It might also be that NOW needs to raise their ‘protesting’ rates.

They should pay at least as much as the OWS organizers are paying. Given that they claim ‘equal pay’ to be one of their causes..

Pairing with media watchdog Media Matters for America NOW is targeting local affiliates and local advertisers, Friday’s demonstration was touted as the group’s big demonstration of opposition to Limbaugh with affiliates across the country participating in protests.

NOW has had Limbaugh in their crosshairs for nearly two decades, and they renewed their effort to get Limbaugh off the air as a response to the radio host’s late February insult of contraception activist Sandra Fluke.

Standing on a street corner in front of WMAL the seven women bearing signs such as “Enough Rush” and “Stop hate speech” received some honks and smiles…

Erin Matson, NOW action vice president explained to The Daily Caller that Limbaugh crossed the line with his comments about Fluke and that he needs to go…

According to Matson, the community is on NOW’s side, adding that “it is a smart business decision” for affiliates and advertisers to leave Rush.

“Women are the majority of consumers in this country and we influence or make over 80 percent of the consumer decisions,” she said

Which sounds like bullying to us. We thought NOW and the rest of the the Obama campaign and the rest of the Left pretended to be against bullying.

Still TheDC overheard pedestrian conversations scoffing at the fact NOW is still on Limbaugh’s case, over two months after his Fluke comments.

Last week Limbaugh launched a response to NOW’s campaign against him in the form of a Facebook group for his female listeners, “Rush Babes for America aka the National Organization for Rush Babes,” to show not all women adhere the NOW agenda. His Facebook group surpassed NOW’s Facebook “likes” in under 24 hours

According to NOW, chapters in New York City, West Palm Beach, Fla., and Phoenix, Ariz., also held protests against Limbaugh today.

But their turnout was probably not quite as spectacular as the turnout in DC, or we would have heard about it.

    These people are absolutely NUTS. To sit there, and obsess over such a non-issue, is a mental disorder, not activism.

    Remember this one?
    Kerry supporters seek therapy in South Florida

    In your life until now, you can count the CONSTANT drum-beat of one obsessive issue to the next. Civil Rights, once they got that done and abused us with reverse racism, they moved on the the Vietnam war, then it was GLOBAL FREEZING, then Reagan and nuclear disarmament, people chaining themselves to nuke trains etc, then AIDS activism, then it was acid rain, then it was protests over Clinton’s impeachment and killing us with political correctness, then Gore vs. Bush, then the war protests started up again, now it’s global warming and occu-tards running crazy all over America, and recently gay marriage & “The war on women!” WHEN DO THESE PEOPLE EVER STOP?

    To truly understand liberals, you need to go to zombietime.com, then flip through the DSM-IV. ~wow.

    If they wanted to protest for Fluke, they should have done so during her actual 15 minutes of fame. We’re collectively already on to Romney’s evil teenhood as a barber. Get with the program ladies.

    Maybe attendance for this “event” was weak because the rest of the gals were at one of the “slutwalk” events that NOW likes to support.

    A quick web search of “National Organization for Women” and “slutwalk” turns up a ton or results: speakers, calls to action, and other general support. I suppose the amount of NOW’s outrage at the usage of the word depends a lot on who is using it.

    We’ve doxed the leader of the #stoprush conspirators on Twitter “@shoq” a pretty well known Leftist troll. Meet Matt Edelstein

    It’s a pathetic effort that’s not only going nowhere, it’s starting to backfire. Big time. Shoq is one of a few Liberal worms that we’re yanking out of the muck and showing people. Brett Kimberlin, convicted early 80’s domestic Leftist terrorist, is another one, who has sent Stacy McCain and his family into hiding: http://theothermccain.com/ Just go to the site and catch up on the updates.
