“Rush Babes”: Limbaugh’s Facebook Page Garnering SupportBy: Amanda Crum - May 15, 2012
Rush Limbaugh has been in the news a lot recently (but then, when isn’t he?) regarding his views on women’s rights, especially after an incident with Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke in which he called her a “slut” after she made statements about birth control availability. Now, he’s looking to gain female supporters with a new Facebook page aimed at conservative women, which he calls “Rush Babes For America“.
After the radio-show host made derogatory comments towards Fluke, the National Organization for Women (NOW) began campaigning against him to try and get his show taken off the air. Limbaugh says he’s tired of the “liberal organization disguised as a group that’s interested in the rights of women” and says they only “represent a tiny number of highly-agitated activist types. They’re basically miserable and unhappy women, for whatever reason.” His counter reaction to NOW is “Rush Babes”, which already has over 22,000 likes on Facebook.
Limbaugh had this to say on Twitter:
Love it or hate it, the page is getting a lot of attention.
@Limbaugh! Thanks for this page!I couldn’t get to Facebook to join Rush Babes for America fast enough! Love ya, Rush
