“Sec. Panetta, Get Rush Limbaugh Off Armed Forces Radio NOW! No tax money for abusive, divisive, insulting language” :  https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions#!/petition/sec-panetta-get-rush-limbaugh-armed-forces-radio-now-no-tax-money-abusive-divisive-insulting/p439GWMm

POST UPDATED W/NEW INFORMATION:
It’s been a popular question since this whole thing started, why is Rush Limbaughs show playing on a radio station funded by OUR TAX DOLLARS?

Apparently they don’t pay to play the show – we are still trying to figure that out –but we pay for the entire network w/our tax money via the DOD. We need to get this show off the air, it makes me shudder as I do my taxes that we are in anyway supporting him. There are many movements out there to get Secretary Panetta to drop this show – these are some we’ve collected over the past two weeks. If you know of other efforts/links/twitter/facebook please leave a comment.

Please contact your own senator and congressman, send a message with a stamp in an envelope – the old fashioned way – to Panetta.  Sign the petitions and share them with your friends. Send a message to our government, take this guy off the American Forces Network!  It’s all here:

This is important because your tax dollars pays to run this radio station- it isn’t about equal voices, two sides etc .. this is about one man who has crossed the line too many times and this time he went WAY TOO FAR and crossed the lines of decency and respect!

Contact your senator and congressman and tell them to stop funding this show!

Find your congressman’s contact information: http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/
The DOD has a statement in their FAQ page explaining that they don’t pay to advertise on the show … that isn’t what we want, we want them to STOP PLAYING THE SHOW!
Send Leon Panetta a snail mail letter telling him you don’t want your tax money spent on this misogynist’s show!
Leon Panetta, Secretary of the DOD, 1400 Defense Pentagon, Washington, DC 20301-1400

Contact the DOD – send them a message: https://kb.defense.gov/app/ask/session/L3RpbWUvMTMzMTc4NzI0OS9zaWQvN2ppWlM2VGs%3D

Petition: Senators Carl Levin and John McCain: Cut all ties between American Forces Network and Rush Limbaugh

https://www.change.org/petitions/senators-carl-levin-and-john-mccain-cut-all-ties-between-american-forces-network-and-rush-limbaugh

Why This Is Important

Dear Senators Levin and McCain,

We are petitioning you to cut all ties between Rush Limbaugh and the American Forces Network, also known as the Armed Services Network. In your capacity as Chairman and Ranking Member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and as Senators, you are in a unique position to contact Secretary Panetta and question him as to the continued presence of a misogynist on military airwaves.

Both of you have listened to testimony about sexual harassment in today’s military. You both understand the severe toll that sexual harassment takes on the ability for our current force to its job well. In the first 18 month of the war in Iraq, over 100 cases of sexual assault were reported. Your esteemed colleague, Susan Collins, said at the time, “What does it say about us as a people, as a nation, as the foremost military in the world, when our women soldiers sometimes have more to fear from their fellow soldiers than from the enemy?”

We ask you, our Senators, what does it say about us as a people, as a nation, as the foremost military in the world, that we allow a misogynist daily access to our military airwaves in the name of Free Speech?

We believe the women serving in our military deserve a better atmosphere in which to work. We believe that family, the wives, mothers, and daughters in our military community, deserve it as well.

The freedom to speak freely is a right that military members and their families do not take lightly. In fact, active duty members partially give up that right when they sign the dotted line. It is your responsibility, as Senators and fellow citizens, to speak for all of those who have sworn to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

Please, cut all ties between AFN and Rush Limbaugh immediately. Help stop sexual harassment in its tracks.

Sincerely ….. PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION
