Female Vets Call on Armed Services Radio to Drop Rush

Bravo!

The largest progressive group of veterans in America, VoteVets.org, is today releasing a statement from three female Iraq war veterans calling on Rush Limbaugh’s show to stop being broadcast by the American Forces Network (AFN).

“Rush Limbaugh has a freedom of speech and can say what he wants, but in light of his horribly misogynistic comments, American Forces Radio should no longer give him a platform.  Our entire military depends on troops respecting each other – women and men.  There simply can be no place on military airwaves for sentiments that would undermine that respect.  When many of our female troops use birth control, for Limbaugh to say they are “sluts” and “prostitutes” is beyond the pale.  It isn’t just disrespectful to our women serving our country, but it’s language that goes against everything that makes our military work.  Again, we swore to uphold our Constitution, including the freedom of speech, and would not take that away from anyone – even Limbaugh.  But that does not mean AFN should broadcast him.  In fact, it shouldn’t.”

    rush is a jerk. (in my opinion) he has always been a jerk…at least what i’ve seen or heard of him in the past. it seems he feels he is so superior to everyone else…he can say whatever he wants…without regard to feelings and human decency. obviously the people of his ‘party’ are either scared to stand up to him…or they just don’t care?!!

    GOOD for all the sponsors that decided enough is enough…and left him…and GOOD for the American Forces Radio!!
