Rush Limbaugh Is No Texan

Friday, March 2, 2012

Rush Limbaugh, a Rick Perry "Honorary Texan," called Sandra Fluke a "slut" for defending women's health. 

This Texas Independence Day, join us in telling Rick Perry that Rush Limbaugh should no longer be an Honorary Texan.

Sandra Fluke is the Georgetown law student who was asked to testify at the "No-Girls-Allowed" Congressional hearing Republicans held about women's health. For speaking out on behalf of women's health, Limbaugh called Fluke a "slut" and a "prostitute" and went on to say that, "if we're going to pay for your contraceptives and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something for it. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch."

There is nothing Texan, and nothing honorable, about Limbaugh calling a woman who uses birth control a slut. There is nothing Texan, and nothing honorable, about Limbaugh saying a woman who uses birth control should film herself so he can watch her. Yet Rush Limbaugh is an honorary Texan, because Rick Perry will do anything to please his extreme right-wing base.

Demand Governor Perry revoke Rush Limbaugh's status as an "Honorary Texan."

Three of Limbaugh's advertisers have already pulled their support for his program over these outrageous remarks. Tell Rick Perry he can show some true Texas independence and sever his ties to Rush Limbaugh immediately.
