NOW Pushes to “Hush Rush”

In the wake of his attacks on Georgetown Law Student and contraception advocate, Sandra Fluke, the National Organization for Women (NOW) has renewed its attempts to end Limbaugh’s radio show. However, what NOW and other anti-groups fail to consider is that Rush and his supporters will refuse to be told by leftist and feminist groups what speech is acceptable. Furthermore, if any organization was able to shut down another because it expressed ideas it was not in favor of, the United States would no longer be a place of democracy, intellectual debates, and freedom of choice. Yes, Rush’s comments about Fluke were uncalled for and understandably have cast him in an unfavorable light, but it is not the job of NOW to decide what can be said over the air or not. However, this feminist group is making the most progress of any attempt to silence Rush, with differnent chapters gaining the support of local radio stations and a website that allows followers to donate to the cause.

  1. I NEVER HEARD THE "NOW" COMMENTS, BUT I'M SURE RUSH HAS PUT HIS FOOT IN HIS MOUTH-AGAIN! INSTEAD OF HUSHING RUSH, LETS FLUSH HIM! WHAT A BLABBERING IDIOT HE IS! I'M SURE WHAT EVER THE OUTCOME WILL BE, "IT'S ALL CLINTON'S FAULT"

  2. Now has lost all credability. they appear to be nore than any thing else politically motivated. Why else attack rush and give Phil maer a pass for his hatefull remarks?

  3. I grew up in the 60s as as young woman. NOW sold us a bill of goods that is "crap" from my now wiser years. How dare they. If they want to be a real woman's advocate group, start championing the rights of young Muslim women in our country who are brutalized and murdered by "caring" fathers, brothers, any male relative. This is the USA! Assimilate like the rest of us did or go back to your stone age countries and culture. Enough is enough. By the way, I am a 1st generation whose people came from central Europe – you know,quotas, lists, waiting with eagerness to be part of the Americana dream.
