Furious Democrat activists are working to silence Rush Limbaugh for good, calling on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to pull his radio show off the air.
An activist on signon.org is collecting signatures in support of a petition to FCC to, "remove Mr. Limbaugh from the radio as he has violated FCC rules and regulations countless times. The most recent incident being his assault on women and his degradation of Sandra Fluke." The petition is circulating on Facebook and Twitter and on Democrat message boards.
Signon.org is an online service provided by MoveOn.org and has already gathered over 6,000 supporters. The petition organizer, "T. Turner," has promised to print off and send the petition to the FCC on March 7th, and is looking to get over 10,000 signatures.
The petition currently hosts thousands of angry comments - riddled with spelling errors - including people who insist that Limbaugh no longer has the right to free speech.
