Sign our petition to the Pentagon on Rush Limbaugh
Rush Limbaugh’s recent statement that women who use birth control are “sluts” and “prostitutes,” are outrageous, and undermine the respect that all troops – men and women – must have for each other. Sign our petition calling for the American Forces Network to stop broadcasting him:
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. I believe in 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.
