Will WJR continue to air Limbaugh after he says women who use contraception should post videos of their sex online?

The day after Rush Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke a “slut” for advocating for birth control, he doubled down today by saying all women who get free contraception through their health care should post videos of themselves having sex on the internet.

Folks, if you ask ‘em, if you ask ‘em, the Washington, D.C. Department of Health will send you free condoms and and lube! The D.C. Department, free condoms and lube if you just ask ‘em for it.

So, Ms. Fluke and the rest of you feminazis, here’s the deal: if we are going to pay for your contraceptives and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something for it. And I’ll tell you what it is. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch.

Limbaugh went on to describe Ms. Fluke as “a woman who is happily presenting herself as an immoral, baseless, no-purpose-to-her life woman. She wants all the sex in the world whenever she wants it, all the time, no consequences. No responsibility for her behavior.” He also mocked her, doing an impersonation of a girl’s voice, saying, “I’m going broke having sex. I need government to provide me condoms and contraception. It’s not fair.” He asked, “Ms. Fluke, have you ever heard of not having sex? Have you ever heard of not having sex so often? … Who bought your condoms in junior high? Who bought your condoms in the sixth grade? Or your contraception. Who bought your contraceptive pills in high school?”

The Detroit radio station WJR, the most powerful AM radio station in the region, runs Limbaugh’s radio show from noon to 3:00 p.m. every day. Is this bedrock radio station for the Midwest going to continue to allow this odious talk on their station every single day?

I have just sent the following message to WJR using this link. I encourage you to send one of your own.

Yesterday, Rush Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke, a lesbian, a “slut” for advocating for contraceptive coverage by health insurance. Today he said this:

“Folks, if you ask ‘em, if you ask ‘em, the Washington, D.C. Department of Health will send you free condoms and and lube! The D.C. Department, free condoms and lube if you just ask ‘em for it.

So, Ms. Fluke and the rest of you feminazis, here’s the deal: if we are going to pay for your contraceptives and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something it. And I’ll tell you what it is. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch.”

I call upon you and your station to loudly repudiate this odious talk and to fire Rush Limbaugh by taking him off your station.

You represent the state of Michigan in so many ways and by continuing to air Rush Limbaugh’s brand of hate, you shame our fine state. Please do the right thing and end your relationship with him.

    And what if Ms. Fluke refuses to comply with Boss Limbaugh’s demands? Will she be held in Contempt of Right Wing Gasbag?

  • Mors Hostibus

    WHY WOULD A LESBIAN NEED $3K WORTH OF CONTRACEPTIVES? IT MAKES NO SENSE.

      First of all Mors, take it out of the all-caps head voice. Second, she needed it for medical reasons explained in Fluke’s testimony.

      Thanks for playing.

      From what I remember of high school Latin, “mors hostibus” means “a guest who has to be escorted out of the party by the scruff of his neck.”
