Rush Limbaugh Supporters Rally Around Him

By: Mike Tuttle - March 12, 2012

Despite the lashing Rush Limbaugh has taken lately for his remarks about Sandra Fluke, the advertisers he has lost, the scandal that still hangs over the whole thing, his fans are hanging tough. From the classic Mega-Dittoes faithful have come Twitter campaigns like #rallyfor rush, aimed at making those advertisers who bailed on their hero pay dearly for their sins.

Netflix finds itself in a particular quandary. After coming under boycott for advertising on Limbaugh’s program, they lost members until they issued statements and clarified that they were pulling out. Limbaugh fans retaliated by canceling their own memberships with Netflix. Then, when Netflix ads continued to run on Limbaugh’s show – possibly leftover buys – the boycott hit them again.

Online backup service, Carbonite, had seen stock declines for months. After issuing a statement and leaving Limbaugh, their stock continued to drop. Many Limbaugh fans celebrated, claiming responsibility.

Limbaugh supporters have taken to Twitter. Here is a collection of pro-Limbaugh tweets, including those by some non-fans who came to his defense.

Please convey my support to Rush Limbaugh. His comments are “spot on,’ and he should have no concern over losing his fan base. Matt 1 day ago via web ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

I’m no Rush Limbaugh fan – he was WAY wrong to call Sandra Fluke that. But come on – shouldn’t this be called out on both sides? 1 day ago via web ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

    Proud to be a “dittohead” sounds a little like proud to be a sheep.

    • Guy

      Nice democrat talking point.

  • knight4444

    rush limbaugh and creatures that think like him are the ugly, rotten, hateful, racist pigs that live in this country. I’ve noticed that most of his base are low level angry, white males. just like the republican party. these whining fools and they’re non sense is one of the reasons why the rest of the world HATES america you go rush and your ignorant sheep

    • Guy

      Really? Last I checked it was we conservatives paying the taxes so that liberals like Fluke could enjoy being a career student. Now head back to your OWS tent.



    • Brice

      The rest of the world hates us because you have a President who is totally out of his league. By the way us ugly,rotten, hateful, racist pigs are what made this country great. You low life, egocentric fools begging for handouts is what is destroying this country. Get a life, get a job, be a productive human being. Why is it you Democrats hate this country? Why is it your kind want to bankrupt this country? Oh, by the way, I am a High Level, angry white male, whose family immigrated to this country legally five generations ago and became a part of this country to help it prosper and become the greatest country on earth. I learned at an early age that you sow what you reap. For you elitist Democrats that means if you work hard, don’t beg for handouts, the American Dream is possible.

    liberals only want it their way or the highway…guess what ? They can hit the highway…KMA modickers.. right on Rush…

  • Paul

    Is Jane Fonda still alive? What else would you expect from a Christan Science fanatic.

    • Brice

      Rush just call her a “slut”. Jane Fonda killed Americans. She is as un-American as Obama. I just don’t understand why Democrats or leftist want to destroy this country.

  • Randy Duryea

    Rush is a freak and so are all you no minds that think he’s the savior, you bunch of losers!

    • Brice

      To Randy Duryea—-No I don’t think Rush is a savior, but I do believe in God. I do believe people such as yourself have a right to leave this country. People like you and your President don’t believe in the Constitution and the First Amendment, unless it is your rights that are being trampled on. What makes you think that you are smarter than Conservatives? Because the liberal media tells you that you are. People like you make me believe in abortion and I do believe that Democrats and leftist should abort as many children as possible and in a few generations there won’t be any of you left.

  • Guy

    Time to head to your occupy tent. You can complain about all that you are owed from us conservatives that have real jobs tomorrow. Nighty night!

    With respect to high-profile Limbaugh-boycotter Carbonite, the company is doing consumers a public service by going silent — because its 2011 Annual Report shows that NASDAQ:CARB is a dinosaur dot-com disaster that has vaporized a whopping $100 million since 2005 and is bleeding out to the tune of additional $2 million each and every month!

    Carbonite CEO (and Limbaugh-critic) David Friend is thus being paid $500,000 per year to manage the loss of $500,000 per week!

    That is insane! (Except perhaps here in spendaholic Washington, DC.)

    Carbonite advertises promiscuously on 40 talk-radio shows but because Friend publicly lectured Limbaugh, his company has been spotlighted to reveal a turkey wearing an eagle costume.

    Indeed, WSJ MarketWatch’s Chuck Jaffe quickly deemed Carbonite to be the “Stupid Investment of the Week”:

    Here is the bad news that investors have learned about Carbonite since the company posted its dismal financials on the SEC website last summer in preparation for a murky IPO:

    At the time of its IPO, Carbonite was down to six months’ cash in the bank after $88 million of losses. (Now, thanks to public investment, it has 30 months of cash in the bank after $100 million of losses.)

    Nevertheless, Carbonite is on the fast-track to insolvency.
    In two+ years it will necessarily either be shut down or liquidated by acquisition because Carbonite has simply never been managed as a “going concern.”

    Instead its executives and insiders appear to have enriched themselves for seven long years while losing mass quantities of other-people’s-money.

    For example, on March 8 2012 at the height of the Limbaugh controversy, Carbonite’s management picked investors’ pockets by conjuring up 1,005,493 shares of stock out of thin air, to be “offered to employees in employee benefit plans:”

    Understandably, Carbonite’s newly-minted stock is steadily ski-sloping down toward the $2-$3 range that represents last summer’s IPO loot.

    Carbonite long ago missed its window-of-opportunity to profitably dominate the online backup marketplace. It is now surrounded and underpriced by nimble competitors who have read and understood Rob Cosgrove’s definitive how-to book:

    There is thus ‘no way out’ for this money-losing company … and no reason for investors to buy its stock unless they are looking for a tax write-off.

    Limbaugh’s audience is clearly better off NOT using Carbonite’s service or investing in its stock because the company’s now-public financials depict an Internet throwback that is destined to become another “spectacular dot-com flameout” — of the sort so mercilessly mocked on F’ a decade ago. (Remember “Flooz” currency?!)

    Ironically Carbonite has done the public a huge service by withdrawing its advertising from Limbaugh’s show – but not the sort of service imagined by its clueless kamikaze CEO David Friend whose personal politics have greatly steepened Carbonite’s glide path to an inevitable fiery crash landing.

    Concluding the metaphors, this Turkey is Toast!

    Carbonite will be gone, with or without Limbaugh advertising, and his listeners are better off without it.

    SemperFiMarine—-I am an Army Combat Vet and am with you all the way. I have seen Communism/Socialism,Marxism first hand. There are only two classes of people the elite and the poor. Unfortunatly American kids now are taught Socialism from an early age in Public Schools. In California, Texas, and New York, the history books are being rewritten to make the U.S. as the bad guy. Next they will be taught that the holocaust or WWII/Korea never happened. Most liberals also don’t realize that most wars we have been involved in they started or got us into. I have an Aunt, who is a retired teacher after 35 years in the Public System, who only taught 1st/2d grade because she wanted to teach them before they were ruined. Semper Fi

    Of the 40 or so companies that have left Rush, the only one I use is Geico. My car insurance is due in April and I will be dropping them.

    • Liza

      I need car insurance and will purchase Geico, because the

      dropped Rush. The language he uses for women are like racial

      terms He is a low class red neck slob. He hates women and they

      hate him..
