[UPDATE] Nine major sponsors cut ties with Rush Limbaugh leaving him with near zip!

THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — Wow, how the mighty has fallen — in the pocketbook at least! Thanks to social media and twitter, we’ve hit him where it matters most. I’ll let the seven nine sponsors speak for themselves:

Sleep Train: “We are pulling our ads with Rush Limbaugh and appreciate the community’s feedback.”

Sleep Number: Recent comments by Rush Limbaugh do not align w/our values, so we made decision to immediately suspend all advertising on that program.

Quicken Loans:“Due to continued inflammatory comments . . . QL has suspended ads on Rush Limbaugh program.”

Carbonite: “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.”

ProFlowers: “Mr. Limbaugh’s recent comments went beyond political discourse to a personal attack and do not reflect our values as a company. As such, ProFlowers has suspended advertising on the Rush Limbaugh radio program” 

LegalZoom: “LegalZoom has decided to terminate all current and future advertising with ‘The Rush Limbaugh Show,’ effective immediately. Our company does not in any way support or endorse the recent comments of Mr. Limbaugh.”

Citrix Systems Inc: “We have listened to our customers & have decided to cease our advertising on The Rush Limbaugh Show immediately..”

AOL Inc: “We have monitored the unfolding events and have determined that Mr. Limbaugh’s comments are not in line with our values.”

Tax Resolution Services Co: CEO Michael Rozbruch said his firm is ‘pulling ads for now.’

  1. I have contacted every sponsor which has pulled their advertising, and informed them the I won’t be using their goods or services and asking my friends and family to do so as well.
    They are perfectly within their rights to pull their advertising, as I am in not using them.

  2. Funny. Limbaugh’s comments, though in poor taste, are a far cry from any attacks made on Sarah Palin, Laura Ingraham, and others. This list is helpful in that I know where I will not be spending my hard-earned money.

  3. Thanks for the list. I will be contacting each sponsor to inform them that i will be no longer purchasing their services. Tired of ****** ****** **** trying to kill free speech in this country. This

  4. Liberty is dying in this nation thanks to liberal and the left. Hitler would be proud

    • Lexie: What kind of Facist fools find your interesting site? Thanks for keeping us up to date on the sponsors who have pulled their support from the despicable Limbaugh’s program. My question is why were they advertising with him in the first place? He’s always been a shameful excuse for a human being.

      @Adam Wentworth: I am a proud Liberal and Humanitarian and my ancestors were among the six million Jews murdered in the Holocaust. Liberty does require that Limbaugh receive an exorbitant income and a worldwide platform to regurgitate his filth. The market has spoken, and it has said it doesn’t want pigs and pig wranglers calling young law students “slut” and “prositute” when they are trying to testify before Congress, Liberty would, however, be happy to host Mr. Limbaugh in the gutter, and perhaps even provide him with the cardboard required to display his pig slop notions 24/7, for all manner of passerby to freely see.

      • Anyone who is proud to be a liberal obviously does not possess a brain. I have never lost a one-on-one debate with any of these people.
        Rush is an absolute angel compared your hero, Bill Maher. I can think of at least a dozen filthy words I could use to describe Maher; but none are bad enough and nasty enough to accurately describe him. I think that the very worst I can say of Bill Maher, the comedian, is that he is simply not funny.

    • On the contrary, liberty is working GREAT in this country. What goes around comes around, see? Oh, and you want to bolster your argument by mentioning Hitler?

    • You know, Karlyn,
      It strikes me as very strange that you, being so on tune with tje Holocaust tragedy, the worst of all history, would now associate yourself with class envy and class warfare. Don’t you see what you are doing? It’s your kind of thinking that was largely responsible for the Holocaust.
      My heart is with you; but I truly wish your thinking were on a better tract.

      • Alright Mr. Ewing, I’ve given you a platform to make rebuttals. But you’re starting to repeat yourself and this last holocaust comment was over the line. Unless you have something new to add AND can avoid ad hominem comments, you won’t get through moderation.

        Thanks you for partipicating.

        • Thanks for that, Lexie. My mother is a Holocaust survivor. Many others in my family survived The Holocaust and some were murdered. My life is structured around fallout from The Holocaust.

          He really did cross the line.

  6. No liberty is not working great in this country. Democrats are leading this country into a police/nanny state. You have a criminal in the White House that is assassinating american citizens, funneling guns to Mexican drug gangs, asking Americans to turn in any family members that dare to question his policies, and violates the US constitution at every turn. I didn’t spent 5 years in the Military defending the US constitution to sit back and watch the democrat party try to dismantle it.

    • We thank you for your service in the military Adam. But you weren’t defending the U.S. Constitution, you volunteered to join and serve at the whims of your commander-in-chief and this included an invasion of a country that was no threat to the United States. Your paycheck came from American people like Democrats — of which there are more of in this country. Bush and company actually face criminal charges in certain countries. Obama does not. But, we’re off topic. A radio show host called a college kid a slut. now he’s paying the piper. Liberty is working both ways here. Lets agree to disagree.

  7. A reminder — all ad hominem posts will be deleted. stick to the topic please!

  8. like libya?

  9. A 30 year old college student by the way.

  10. The Hague is also looking into the Libya terrorist attack led by Obama.

  11. No lexie; it was you that brought up international courts and illegal wars. When did Bush ever assassinate an american citizen like Obama has done?

  12. I already contacted all of the sponsors that dropped Limbaugh and dropped them. Unlike you I believe in free speech, especially free speech that I disagree with.

  13. I don’t know what the problem is, it sounds like free markets at work to me. It is perfectly within the letter and the spirit of the U.S. Constitution to contact a business as a private citizen and tell them that you won’t be using their product/service anymore if a certain condition doesn’t change. And it is perfectly within the letter and the spirit of the constitution for said businesses to alter the conditions which inspired the outrage of their clientele.
    But who am I kidding? Typical kneejerk reactionaries don’t really care about silly things like facts and ideas.

  14. My Son is a very successful and knowledgable Marketing Executive.
    Accordimg to him, these sponsors who are leave Rush and a huge listening audience are making a huge mistake.
    Yjey just lowered their potential customer base by 2/3. Do they honestly think the nut-case left is going to support them. I’m glad they are gone. I’m sending Rush sizable cash to tide him over(as though he needs it). He’s already acquiring bigger and better sponsors. You think Rush is going to be out of business? You people are certifiable idiots.

    • Ok, we’re idiots. Please send Rush more money to prove that point.

    • What are you possibly getting from supporting such a horribly offensive person? Are you awake? He called a young law student a “slut” and a “prostitute” for testifying in front of Congress about healthcare coverage! Hello? That’s what you are sending in money to support? I have read about other of his “bon mots” and he is a certifiable sexist, racist, homophobic pig, who cares only about money, fame and power, and will say anything or walk over anyone who will bring that to him–imcluding you, Robert Ewing.

      • Poor,young, sweet, innocent college student? Boo-hoo.
        She’s a 30 year feminazi agitator trained by the far left in effective activism.
        She’s been a leftist activist since leaving high school; at least the last 12 years. Do a little rersearch you jerk.
        She’s being used by the left to call attention away from Obama’s failures. When she fades away (soon), they will suddenly create yet another issue. This is the game. Are we having fun yet? The are a total of nine women in my extended family; and they all agree with me. There is not one slut among them. I don’t think Ms. Fluke is one either.
        Now, can we get back to the real issues?

  15. You know, Forest Gump might say something like this: “Slut is as slut does.”
    I don’t care about one’s sex life. However, I’m not going to pay for it. And don’t give me BS about Women’s Health issues. There is a total of nine women in my exstended family; and not one agrees with the left’s assessment of this reality.

    • You’ve your opinion. You’re wrong on health issues though . . . some women do take BC pills to moderate their hormone balance and it’s a fairly good bet that one among those nine you speak of fall in that group — it’s just that its a personal matter and they have no reason to tell you or anyone else about it.

      • Lexie,
        I’m wrong on health issues???
        Well, how about these facts which I dare you to dispute:
        Hormone balance and other issues can be successful treated with other meds than BC pills. When such drugs are included in the BC formula, it drives up the cost of BC pills to about $50 a month, or $600 a year maximum; not $3,000 as stated by Ms. Fluke.
        Straight BC pills are usually about $9 a month.
        I verified these facts with two physicians.
        I’m not saying there aren’t some legitimate health issues here; but they don’t have to be confused with Birth Control. I support legitimate women’s health issues; but pregnancy or the prevention thereof is not a disease.

    • You aren’t willing to pay for family planning or hormonal healthcare or STD protection, but you are willing to pay for sexual “performance aids” (Viagra?)

      I bet you’re the same genius who doesn’t want to pay for the “entitlements” people will need to support all of those unwanted pregnancies and the unwanted babies that will result from them. Geesh.

      Didn’t your parents ever tell you that a “stitch in time saves nine?” You “conservatives” wouldn’t know what real conservative behavior or conservation was if it bit you on the ass. Conservativism, as in, planning for the future? Making prudent investments in regular healthcare rather than paying for outrageously expensive office visits? Paying for decent public education so that we don’t sink our future on privatized jails? Investing in the infrastructure of our country, so that we don’t have to spend multiple times more rescuing our fellow citizens from the kind of havoc Katrina wrought? Coughing up a couple of bucks for birth control for women *and* men so that we don’t have to support prenatal healthcare and a lifetime of sorrow–as in, welfare, healthcare, unemployment, disability, prison and on and on, for someone who was born unwanted?

      I know that doing the right thing, or actually caring about the human cost in sorrow and despair or the wasted humanity of these situation doesn’t move self-serving, self-absorbed, insecure, Freudian anal cases like yourself, but what exactly is it that you *are for* if you’re no longer for saving (tons of) money and building a stronger nation?

      • Thank you. I’ll gladly answer your questions. Yes I’m perfectly willing to pay for my viagra, if indeed I used such a product.
        In fact, I’ll really rattle your cortex. I think all people should pay for their own pregnancy. It’s not a disease, idiots! When both my sister and I were born, my Dad paid the bill out of his pocket, just like half the population of the world still does. Of course, you say but what about the dirt poor who have no money? Boo-hoo.
        Are you saying that these are so poor that they can’t afford even free condoms? Give us a break. The dirt poor continue to have kids they can’t afford because they know others are going to pick up the tab.
        Freud has long been obsolete.
        Those who know me also lnow that I am a generous and legitimately compassionate guy. I have historically given over 20% of my income to charity. For many years, I’ve worked successfully to counsel people out of poverty and into a prosperous life. So please don’t dump your fake tolerance and compassion on me. I know you liberals for who and what you really are.

      • You’re right, Karlyn Isaac Lotney. I am the genius who does not want to pay for entitlements, period. Take your socialist doctrine elsewhere. Your way only keeps the poor as they are so the socialists can maintain power by helping them.
        I’ve spent my career legitimately helping people out of poverty to prosperous living. I’ve been very successful.
        Jesse Jackson, for example, does not really want predjudice to end and equality for all people of color. Otherwise, he would be out of a lucrative job, and he would no longer be of value.
        Historically, all socialist systems have failed simply because people are false, self
        serving, and corrupt.
        An entitlement culture is death to America; and apparently you are just too blind to see.

  16. As Ms Fluke rejects Rush’s applogy, I get the impression that just perhaps Rush’s ill-conceived description of her might be correct. Or, as a Forest Gump might say, “Slut is as slut does.”. She is definitely not some college “kid”. She is a 30 something
    Feminazi and trained agitator for the far left. She’s not some poor little Red Riding Hood. She ate the wolf long ago.

    • Feminazi? Hmm, if you need to dig into the Third Reich to make a point, then I’m afraid you don’t have one.

      • Hi Lexie,
        I’m very pleased that you are not old enough to actually remember the Third Reich.
        Therefore I find it easy to forgive you for not really knowing what you’re talking about.
        My over-riding point is this:
        I’m really glad there are outlandish liberals in the world to challenge my thinking and actions. They help make me who and what I am. Thank you.

  17. Soon, all this will pass. Rush will have bigger and better sponsors, and a much larger listening audience, and making far more money, and having more fun than anyone should ne entitled to. Then, all you liberals, with your hero, Bill
    Maher, can get back to your circle-jerk with silly grins on your face, getting all the joy out of life you are capable of.

  18. I’ve offered my full support to Rush, if he should need it.
    Of course, he doesn’t need my small contribution. You liberals are goong to increase hois listening audience by another 5 million at least, and his personal income by a few more million. You are unknowingly helping Rush fatr more than you can even imagine. So, I just sit here and shake my head at your stupidity. Keep up the good work!

  19. Just to inform the lame brains who might be interested;
    Over 18,000 sponsors support the Rush Limbaugh radio program in over 600 market areas. While no body can calqulate for certain, it is estimated that somewhere between 20 and 30 might have withdrawn their support by pressures from the left.
    If the left is really going to put Rush out of business, then they have a very long way to go. In fact, Rush adds many new sponsors each and every week, and his fan base is actually growing. He’s really
    Enjoying the attacks from the left. This is his multi-million dollar bread and butter. Keep up the good work, fruit cakes.

  20. I’m actually starting to enjoy this. I’ve contacted a 250 K
    Members conservative association of whicj I am a mmember, will not be buying thje goods and services of any of the gutless sponsors who
    dropped Rush. These company’s
    Stocks are already on the decline. Wonderful !

  21. The fact is that many of the users and takers on the left simply cannot afford to buy Sleep Number Beds or $50 Pro-Flowers for their honey on Valentines Day. I could go down the list; but you get the point. Their largest actual customer base is among the conservative.listening audience of talk radio. These very unwise sponsors who left Rush have lost about 2/3 of their potential customer base.
    Rush will simply replace them in routine fashion, as sponsors come and go anyway.
    He’ll be okay.
    As for me and my extended family, nine families altogether, we will not be using the goods and services of all these gutless companies. I trust that you good-hearted peope on the left will take care of them. Lol

  22. Mr. Ewing is repeating himself so I’m afraid I’m going to have to moderate any further posts from him.
