The National Organization for Women have kicked off their “Enough Rush” campaign with a website and online store selling T-shirts, mugs, tote bags, and even mouse pads. Protests were scheduled at various cities Friday, and news reports indicate seven protestors showed up at Limbaugh’s Washington, DC affiliate.
On the group’s About Us page, they can’t even muster the skills to define a goal. Maybe it’s implied or something, but they just want to rally against Rush. There is no objective listed. Supposedly they are “ready to do the right thing” whatever that might be. I’m betting they think there is a market for T-shirts or something.
Meanwhile, Rush’s new Facebook page, Rush Babes for America, gathered more Likes in one week than Media Matters for America collected in almost four years.
In less than a week, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh’s “Rush Babes for America” Facebook page has accumulated more “likes” than the liberal watchdog group Media Matters for America’s (MMFA) Facebook page has accumulated in just under four years.
MMFA is currently waging a campaign to get Rush Limbaugh off the air for his comments pertaining to contraception activist Sandra Fluke. On Monday evening, MMFA’s Facebook had 57,687 “likes,” accumulated since the organization launched its Facebook page on August 8, 2008.
Also on Monday evening, Limbaugh’s jab at those who have demonized his rhetorical treatment of women — his “Rush Babes for America” Facebook page — had topped 60,483 “likes.” Limbaugh’s group was open for public viewing just prior to the beginning of his radio program on Tuesday, May 8, 2012.
