What Would Breitbart Do? Rally for Rush! #WWBD

Jeffrey Lord's latest must-read in the American Spectator is a call to action to defend free speech, inspired by Andrew Breitbart's example. It traces the advertisers that have abandoned Rush's program, many after decades of support. Lord notes that only a pathetic 21 percent of Americans identify themselves as liberals. And he rightly observes that disenfranchising 79 percent of Americans is a decidedly flawed business strategy.

The time to be bullied is OVER. You hear me? It's OVER.

Here's how we're going to fight back against "The Cowardly Seven", as I like to call the advertisers who abandoned Rush over calling Sandra Fluke a "slut", when a more apt description for her is "a lying plant".

Sleep Train: This gutless company says it has been advertising with Rush for 25 years. They should be ashamed of themselves. Absolutely ashamed...
This is the e-mail for Sleep Train's customer service: This is the 800 phone number for Sleep Train: 1-800-919-2337. This is the 800 fax number for Sleep Train: 1-866-293-5719.

Citrix: Mark B. Templeton is the President and CEO... The contact info for the Citrix Corporate Headquarters is... Toll Free Phone: 1-800-424-8749, Phone: 954-267-3000, Fax: 954-267-9319.

Quicken Loans: Quicken, under the leadership of its Founder and Chairman Dan Gilbert.... has gone the extra mile to antagonize the 40 percent. It has this statement on its website: Due to Rush Limbaugh's continued inflammatory comments -- along with the valued feedback we have received from our clients and team members -- Quicken Loans has suspended all advertising on the Rush Limbaugh radio program.

Note: Quicken is so skittish the above message appears for mere seconds before vanishing. It took repeated tries to copy verbatim the simple, highly provocative message above.

The Quicken contact info is found on this page of their website. Note: The company has an online chat function on this page. Also: Phone, Client Relations: 1-800-863-4332.

Pro-Flowers: Their contact info is here.

Carbonite: info here...

...DO YOU GET the picture? The American Left -- whether it pops up in the form of Media Matters, Color of Change,, Texans for Truth or other groups -- is determined to shut off conservative dissent from their agenda by whatever means necessary. Fueled in part by money like that they received from David Friend of Carbonite. To do this they are quite specifically going after conservative talk radio hosts and television commentators one by one by one. The fact that David Friend of is there to stick it to Rush is all the better. The fact that Ed Schulz called Laura Ingraham a slut is one big no-big-deal to Sandra Fluke herself when she wants air time on with Mr. Ed. Why should David Friend care if Ms. Fluke doesn't? So, Carbonite continues as Mr. Ed's sponsor, sluts be damned.

As noted earlier, what began with Don Imus, Lou Dobbs, and Glenn Beck has just hit Pat Buchanan... Now, they want Rush's scalp...

In his last speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) just weeks ago, Andrew Breitbart stood at the podium and said: "Conservatives used to take it and we're not taking it anymore."

...By doing what they have now done, these one-time sponsors of Rush Limbaugh's show have now startlingly indicated that they are signing on with anti-First Amendment thugs.

We've got work to do, friends. It's time to Rally for Rush.

And, please: pass it on.

Hat tip: R.L.

I took care of my Carbonite account this morning. It was fun!

When you contact, ask if their employee health care covers "sex change surgery and hormone replacement maintenance". - If they say "no", tell them sweet ole little Ms. Fluke, is on a mission to SUE businesses for discrimination, to force coverage of TRANSGENDER sex change surgery for employees.

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out --
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out --
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out --
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me -- and there was no one left to speak for me.

I too canceled Carbonite today. I don't excuse Rush's ill considered comments, but I do resent Carbonite acceding to political pressure (check out story on Legal Insurrection. BTW, there are better online backup services. Check out PC Mag assessment of other companies that are more highly rated.

I don't even follow Rush's show, but I'm tired of having my own values and choices demeaned. I've updated
my own post about this to add a link to yours, along with some other companies that don't want our business.

I can't help but wonder if threats were made. Like protests at your home, IRS investigations, etc.
Done in person so there is no electronic record.

I am a lifelong Cleveland Cavs fan but have decided that I will not attend anymore of their home games that are played at Quicken Loans I just have to think of the most creative way to let them know!!

I am amused by 'Anony' up there at 9:41, who had the total courage to post his moronic message in all caps, to show us how big and angry he was! Undoubtedly writing from his Mom's basement, using the laptop she bought him with tips from her second job as a cocktail waitress in a San Fran truck stop.
Anyway, I did indeed contact the various scumbag sponsors to let them know how things stand. Watch their standings on the stock market in the next few days to see an enjoyable side effect of their hypocritical posturing.
Oh- and as one of my friends said - I want the gubbment to start buying me a few thousand dollars worth of ammo each year; I feel the need to fire off a couple of hundred rounds at least monthly at the range, as a release for tension, and I need my handguns to protect my health when i travel through libtard parts of town, so this IS a health issue. so come on, Barry and Moochy, start forking over the ammo funds.
You assholes.
