oh rush..our voices drowned out yours

Did you feel the world axle shift? That was Rush Limbaugh issuing an apology for his outrageous comments directed at Sandra Fluke.

The power of your voices had the arrogant Rush Limbaugh apologizing. The onslaught of protests to the sponsors of his show had  advertisers pulling out of  his radio show.

His apology on his website reads :

“For over 20 years, I have illustrated the absurd with absurdity, three hours a day, five days a week. In this instance, I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situation. I did not mean a personal attack on Ms. Fluke. My choice of words was not the best, and in the attempt to be humorous, I created a national stir. I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for the insulting word choices.”

Does not strike me as a sincere apology but just a response instruction from his bosses and sponsors.

He absolutely meant a personal attack on Sandra Fluke. Even going as far as saying he wanted her to post video when she has sex on the internet for him to watch.

But what I want to speak to here is not a man that is not worth a moment of our precious lives…but the pride I feel in the power of our voices joined together. Social media has given us as never before a path to make quick impact when there are those who try to silence our voices and/or cross the bounds  as Rush did on his show.

We have accomplished much as women to gain our equal rights in this Country. But we have far yet to go.  And I can not say it better on this issue than Sandra Fluke when she said;

“What has been made clear, is that women will not be silenced on this issue, and neither will the men who support them.”

Your voice our voices together  have the power to make great change.

It’s a good day.
