AARP: Rescue Your Name from Rush Limbaugh

To be delivered to Robert G Romasco, President

Petition Statement

Request stations move AARP to the "No Rush Play List" to support civil discourse.
There are currently 199,371 signatures. NEW goal - We need 200,000 signatures!

Petition Background

AARP advertising is filling dead air on the Rush Limbaugh Show. Limbaugh calls women “feminazis,” “infobabes,” “sexretaries,” and, worst of all, “sluts” and “prostitutes.” Limbaugh calls Latinos "weak," "lazy," and "unskilled."
And, in the wake of the Trayvon Martin murder trial, Limbaugh even used the "N-word" and claimed it was not racist.
Over 2,600 advertisers have stopped supporting Limbaugh's shows, and AARP should follow suit. While public service announcements don't pay Limbaugh, they still give legitimacy to harmful views that have no place in a civil society. Organizations with PSAs (such as AARP) should take responsibility and request their ads not air during the Rush Limbaugh Show.
