Troll alert: Stop Rush mob goes after U.S. Figure Skating Association


The petty bullies of the “Stop Rush” campaign are it again. This time, they’re attacking the U.S. Figure Skating Association on Twitter because the group apparently runs ads on a radio station that also happens to broadcast Rush Limbaugh’s show.

Stompy-foot, clenchy-fist brigade, activate!

“Shandy Hook?” And they call Rush Limbaugh listeners ignorant?

KFAB, the target of the Stop Rush harassment, is a conservative talk radio station in Omaha, Nebraska. The city hosts the U.S. Figure Skating Association championships in two weeks. The speech-squelchers won’t rest until they shut down their political opponents, and they’ll seize any remote, guilt-by-association opportunity to do so.

Luckily for the Right, the left’s Rush Derangement Syndrome has failed to stop him for 25 years running.

Let’s hope the U.S. Figure Skating Association treats the trolls the way they should be treated: Ignore them.

Good advice here:

Ditto that!

    From #StopRush:
    Shucks, y’all. @wendys sponsored the traffic during Limbaugh on @995WRNO yesterday. Why? #stoprush

    Considering that lefties declared their “boycott” of Wendy’s the other day, why wouldn’t Wendy’s advertise on Rush’s show? Would pulling their ads somehow magically end the leftist hate for the franchise that reduced employee hours due to Obama(doesn’t)CareTax?


    • EastValleyConservative

      Exactly. It isn’t about appeasement, it’s about surrender. They get you for one thing, then they demand more and more. They can’t even understand the concept that the advertisements are for the radio station locally who has to fund their existence. You are correct, first, appeasement doesn’t work, second, the word is too big for them to comprehend, and third, show them a dictionary definition, and they will scream “you lie!”. I support their First Amendment right to screech despite their insistence that mine be destroyed–and I fully support ignoring tantrum throwing idiots.

  • SpinMeNot

    I can’t help but laugh at the left — oppose the first amendment, except for themselves and the SCOTUS fabricated “separation of church and state” (and yes, I am aware that Jefferson used that phrasing in a letter to the Danbury Baptist Association). Go ahead, boycott away … I’m always on the lookout for liberal-free zones where I can eat.

    edit: sorry, to be clear, that “boycott” comment was a result of the reference made on this thread to the left calling for a Wendy’s boycott. Mixing my rants …

    • Stephanie Kienzle

      Love your comment. I retweeted :-)

    • JohnMcaluneyJr

      The Left cares about The Children.

      • peteee363

        yes they are, that why they support the killing of so many at planned parenthood!

      • Rulz

        What children? Liberals don’t have children.

        • Josephine (D)

          They (might) have two, and all others that might be conceived after that(because they use faulty contraception, rather than abstinence) are aborted.

        • Laura Jensen

          Exactly. They don’t conform to societal norms including procreation with members of the opposite sex while married…I mean, like, that is just sooooo mainstream they wouldn’t be caught dead. It is waaaay more liberating to just berate the nuclear family.

        • PennyRobinsonFanClub

          They adopt Kenyan bastards.

      • lainer51

        they sure do… except the ones that can be murdered in the womb.

      • $36544368

        The Left ARE children.

      • Catchance

        You probably should note that you’re being sarcastic….

        • JohnMcaluneyJr

          Thank you.

      • Garth Haycock

        Then why does the left demand that they be allowed to slaughter the unborn children?

        • JohnMcaluneyJr

          Dear Sir, I was kidding.

          • TexSizzle

            To make it clear, edit your first comment: add “/sarc” at the end, and people will understand.

      • Garth Haycock

        Then why does the left demand that they be allowed to slaughter the unborn children?

  • Katie Shafer

    i listen to Rush when i can…i have yet to hear anything that would offend anyone unless they were a liberal…he speaks the truth so i guess i can understand why they hate him but it also explains why he’s popular with so many…smart advertising is reaching as many people as you can

    • Cal

      Exactly! I’ve never heard Rush say anything hateful. He’s made jokes, sure, but they’re always with a tone of voice that tells you he’s joking.

      • orringtonmom (D)

        i agree. i’ve heard worse from the likes of bill maher. which makes me wonder if these ‘stop rush’ people listen more intently to him, waiting and drooling for the ‘fluke is a slut’ type comments they can rage on about.

        i can picture a ‘stop rush’ liberal walking through the drug store (after picking up free birth control, natch) “man, that rush limbaugh is such a… hey, Citrical is on sale!”

        • Elaine

          I’ve heard WAY WORSE from most angry progressives who don’t even try to control their hate and anger toward anyone who opposes them!

    • Hello Jerry (D)

      Piss off a liberal, listen to Rush Limbaugh.

    • Well Done

      If you mention some dry facts to a person and they get outraged, you know you’re talking to a lefty.

      • Gary Gary

        That’s funny..because I think that’s what most lefties think of the right.

        • Elaine

          That was my point and I don’t find it amusing.

      • Elaine

        They scream that you are a racist, homophobe, Islamaphobe, war monger, Tea Bagger, hater of women, children, illegals and old people, but they never debate with the actual FACTS. They know we right.

  • Bill Scalzo


  • stuckinIL4now

    These trolls need to get a life or maybe a job, but, oh, their lord and savior has made jobs so rare. They also need to learn how radio advertising works. But then what do we expect from libturds–they have zero comprehension of business or marketing or where money really comes from.


    CRYBABY ALERT! We really should insult these people as much as possible. Since they are more immature, it will actually hurt them.

  • Rulz

    US Figure Skating should stay with Rush, unless they don’t want to reach 20 million+ Americans.

    I promise you won’t get that audience from Piers Morgan, Chris Mathews or Progressive talk radio.

    It really up to these companies and organizations to use the free market, and if you’re going to let a few mommy’s basement tweeters with no money but their allowance/welfare to spend scare you, then there are real world consequences to that.

    You’ve all been warned…..

  • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

    The mental illness of the left continues to spread. Take your meds and dim the lights.

  • Laura Jensen

    I find it hilarious how the spiteful hateful left who wishes to silence all things conservative listens to conservative talk radio long enough to hear the adverts on the station. Do they realize they are supporting the thing they hate by doing that?

    • Hello Jerry (D)

      Of course they don’t, they have the IQ’s of a house plant (their marijuana plants).

  • Gallatin

    Lauren Reynolds
    @Chloesty How can @USFigureSkating advertise on HATE radio Rush LImbaugh? Please #stoprush ads

    Reality Wife
    @realitywife .@USFigureSkating Aware your ads continue to run @kfabnews Rush Limbaugh Hate Radio? Why not call station to move ads away? #stoprush

    You know even if I were a libturd I think I would advertise on Rush’s show, with the attention it gets it has to be the best investment of your advertising dollars.

  • Jack Deth

    I just love it when ignorant, knee jerk liberals expectorate or urinate into the wind.

    They accomplish nothing, yet they are infinitely entertaining to watch!

    • Catchance

      They also tug on Superman’s cape.

      • mickeyco

        Thanks, you 2. I’ve been humming the stupid song for 2 hours now.

  • kbielefe

    What, no comments about figure skating being a rich white person sport?

    • NRPax

      Oh great. Now the Kristi Yamaguchi fans will be after you.

  • PennyRobinsonFanClub

    “Hate radio,” LOL.

    • Hello Jerry (D)

      That phrase got old a very, very long time ago.

      • CherDash

        I proudly listen to Right-Wing-Extremist-Hate-Rhetoric-Talk-Radio. :-)

        • Hello Jerry (D)

          Me too!

  • EastValleyConservative

    Anyone the left disagrees with is a racist, misogynist and any other unprovable slur they can throw at you. What’s sad is this pathetic little group of whiners has probably never listened to more than a snippet of his show and only then when it was provided by Media Matters or HuffPo. It’s a pathetic case of needing a cause, and instead of doing their homework and actually finding a cause that has merit, they latch on to the only one they can understand—one that’s fed to them.

  • Randi Starr

    Well they can Advertise on Air America………..oh wait………opps.

    • lainer51

      or MSDNC – oh wait…

      • RightThinking1

        Uh, Current TV? Never mind……

  • notenoughtime

    Morons on parade.

  • Joe

    The people complaining don’t listen to Rush, and do these people really believe that anything they do will have an impact on….figure skating? They must find themselves very brave indeed for taking on the “Big Skate” industry.

  • Hello Jerry (D)

    Moochers singing the same old tired schtick.

  • shimauma

    @usfigureskating just remember it’s conservatives that work and have the money to purchase things like tickets to a figure skating show. Libturds generally want a gub’mint grant to get stuff like that.

  • detroit19

    Ask Carbonite how pulling ads from Rush’s show worked out for them?

  • RightThinking1

    So…, a local station runs ads, this group whines. I wonder if it has occurred to them that the Figure Skating bunch knows exactly the demographic of a given station, as well as advertising costs, etc., and selected that station because they get the most bang for the buck?
    Obviously, this is just another example of intimidation by the ‘compassionate’ left. Scratch a leftie, find a Nazi.

  • reshas1

    I used to hate Rush, UNTIL, I started listening to him, back in the 80’s-90’s everyone said how racist he is.. NOT TRUE, how homophobic he is, NOT TRUE.. They are such liars, that is all they can do LIE LIE LIE

  • Well Done

    That you pent-up idiots hate Rush doesn’t make him hate radio. It only makes you stupid and hate-filled.

    • Jack Deth

      Especially when Rush records, transcribes and archives each broadcast. Just in case he should ever have to go to court and defend himself. His accusers will spend a very, very long and fruitless time trying to find anything to support their claims.

      The left seems to be hopelessly enamored of the old lawyers’ saw:

      “When you have the facts. Pound the facts!
      When you don’t have the facts. Pound the table!”

      • NRPax

        On another forum, I witnessed someone actually try the “Rush is racist” remark. Someone else decided to have fun with him. This was the exchanged (Grossly paraphrased)

        “He’s a racist!”
        “Name one thing he’s said that was racist. What day? What show?”
        “I don’t listen to him.”
        “Here’s the link to his show. Here’s the link to the transcripts.”
        “But you need a membership to read them! Will you give me the money for it?”

    I am embarrassed to admit this, but I was once a naive, uninformed, nasty liberal when I graduated from college 23 years ago. I even voted for “The Father of the Year” winner in ’92. Then I started listening to Rush in ’93. Because of him, I registered as a Republican in ’94. He changed my life forever,r and I am proud to be a DIttohead and a die-hard conservative. If his critics actually took the time to listen to Rush, they would know that he is really a warm and fuzzy guy.

  • Well Done

    I’ve listened to “Air America”, and I’ve listened to Rush. Compared to AA Rush is a fount of objective information, insight, knowledge, and rational thought. Come to think of it, compared to anyone on radio or TV he is such a fount.

  • Sharon Schlund

    Only hate him because he tells it like it is….Why don’t they demand truth from the MSM…that would be refreshing!

  • TheOriginalDonald

    I’m surprised they haven’t threatened to pay Tonya Harding to tireiron Rush. #WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

  • lugoadvertising

    we must up the ante and do the same…

  • Gary Gary

    Wow…I didn’t realize this was a right wing web site.

  • Collette Nedra Batten

    Skating on thin ice here. But hey they use EVERY thing, nothing is safe from these people.

  • Teresa McCormick

    We have a teacher stomping on an American Flag in one of the Carolinas and these idiots are worried about Limbaugh. He’s not going anywhere. But made it a point tonight to start educating my kids about the constitution and how the government works today. They really enjoyed it. I remember when we learned about that stuff in Elementary school. My 6th grader and 5th grader have not learned this in school yet. Why?? We also talked about the Media Bias!!

  • lillymckim

    25 plus years 5 days a week 3 hours a day Rush millions of faithful
    The companies who advertise with Rush know how to market and they know who has and spends money.

  • BeeKaaay

    NPR is hate radio. Funded by taxpayers because leftwingwackos want to impose their beliefs on others.

  • John Beam

    I can’t imagine any collectivist who immediately assumes that one who objects to Obama’s policies is “racist” (i.e. everyone on MSNBC) that isn’t filled with hate.

  • dwsmokin

    Love the way they call Rush “hate’ radio. Obvious they’ve never listened to him. Whether you like him or not, and usually I don’t, he’s not “hate”. Is he a self-promoter? Sure-although I doubt he’d sell the rights to his show to Al Jazeera. (Sorry Al). Is he arrogant? Sure, which means he has the qualifications to run for President. Is he wrong? Yep, at least some of the time. But he’s not a hater-never has been. Fact is, he’s just another target for the left’s misdirection campaign-focus attention on anything that is not important.
