Operation #BoycottRUSH Campaign in full swing on Twitter; ROJS Radio pledges support

Update: Watch ABC's "The Middle" program? If so, celebrity Patricia Heaton decided to jump into the #BoycottRush debate in a truly awful way.

Ms. Heaton has since 'suspended' her Twitter account (can't take the Twenton heat...get out of the kitchen we guess) but, her actions hasn't stopped a campaign from forming.

Two Twitter Hash Tags of #BoycottPatriciaHeaton and #BoycottABCTheMiddle has started on the social networking site. Let ABC Executives and the ABC/Walt Disney Company know what you think about Patricia Heaton's tweet.

Its' all over Twittersphere. #BoycottRush Campaign is in full effect and appears going well.

In fact, MSNBC reports a 7th Sponsor of 'The Rush Limbaugh Show' on Clear Channel Communications network, has pulled out of advertising on the show.
"A flower company is the 7th advertiser to pull its ads from conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh's radio program in the wake of comments he made about a law student who testified about birth control policy. 
ProFlowers said Sunday on its Facebook page that it has suspended advertising on Limbaugh's program because his comments about Georgetown University student Sandra Fluke "went beyond political discourse to a personal attack and do not reflect our values as a company." 
The six other advertisers that have pulled ads from his show are mortgage lender Quicken Loans, mattress retailers Sleep Train and Sleep Number, software maker Citrix Systems Inc., online data backup service provider Carbonite and online legal document services company LegalZoom."
Not a good weekend for the Conversative firebrand radio show host, so far.

UPDATE- A statement from March 3, 2012. from David Friend-CEO of Carbonite, perfectly summed up why no advertiser who wants to promote their product effectively, should be supporting "The Rush Limbaugh Show" in the future.  
No one with daughters the age of Sandra Fluke, and I have two, could possibly abide the insult and abuse heaped upon this courageous and well-intentioned young lady. Mr. Limbaugh, with his highly personal attacks on Miss Fluke, overstepped any reasonable bounds of decency. 
Even though Mr. Limbaugh has now issued an apology, we have nonetheless decided to withdraw our advertising from his show. We hope that our action, along with the other advertisers who have already withdrawn their ads, will ultimately contribute to a more civilized public discourse.”
Limbaugh is being targeted after his highly-inappropriate comments about Georgetown University Law Student Sandra Fluke, after testimony in support of woman's contraception methods before to U.S. House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee, headed by Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-California).

For Ms. Fluke's Testimony, Rush Limbaugh on his program degraded her with a vicious on-slot of names and statements. We will not mention Limbaugh's ridiculous statements regarding Ms. Fluke here at ROJS News. 

Instead, to read Limbaugh's radio show comments on Ms. Fluke's testimony in entirely, refer to the #BoycottRush petition campaign to boycott Limbaugh's sponsors by Left

In addition to the targeted sponsors, which two are still advertising on  'The Rush Limbaugh Show'', a blog named 'Left Leaning Liberal Lady' has developed a complete list of Limbaugh major and secondary sponsors to target with the #BoycottRush campaign.

ROJS News podcast arm ROJS Radio, operates a Featured Privately-Funded Podcast on the Blog Talk Radio Network with Co-Hosts Monica RW & Autumn S.  fully supports the #BoycottRush campaign. 

ROJS Radio is appalled that the Federal Communication Commission via tax dollars paid on behalf of United States Citizens, both male and female, continue allowance Political Commentator Limbaugh a opportunity to promote hate, intolerance and gender discrimination onto publicly supported airwaves.

ROJS Radio is aligning our Podcast and News Blog with the #BoycottRush campaign. Additionally, we encourage our readers contact the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) to demand 'The Rush Limbaugh Show' program end broadcasting on federally-supported airwaves.
