Flush Rush from Military Bases

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

Petition Background

Rush Limbaugh's sexist and misogynistic radio program has no place on military bases, which are struggling with their own culture that condones sexual harassment and assault. Please remove his program from the taxpayer-funded Armed Forces Network.

Rush Limbaugh is finally getting his comeuppance for spewing misogynistic rhetoric. Over 3,000 advertisers have pulled their sponsorship, and many radio stations have stopped airing his show.

But the Armed Forces Network (AFN), a taxpayer-funded station that broadcasts on U.S. military bases around the world, continues to air his program.

The Pentagon faces a serious problem of sexual harassment and abuse, as more women on military bases report horrific cases of sexual assaults by other servicemembers. President Obama has said we must “step up our game exponentially” to prevent such assaults from happening and punish attackers. This must include changing the culture that condones such behavior.

Rush Limbaugh’s program fuels a culture that condones—if not encourages—misogynistic behavior on military bases. Please sign our petition to the Senate and House Armed Services Committees asking that they pull Rush Limbaugh’s program from the Armed Forces Network.
