As sponsor after sponsor continue to pull ads from woman-hater Rush Limbaugh’s radio show for calling birth control advocate Sandra Fluke a “slut,” one Missouri woman is launching an attack against the conservative loudmouth’s bust in the Hall of Famous Missourians in the State Capitol.

Heather Woodside has started a petition demanding the removal of the bust, installed in the State Capitol by Missouri Republicans in 2012 in the midst of the fury generated by Limbaugh’s vicious sexist attack on Fluke.

In a statement to the St. Louis Post Dispatch, Woodside made it clear that Limbaugh doesn’t deserve a bust and it certainly doesn’t belong in the State Capitol.

“Since Sandra Fluke, Rush has still been demeaning women, people of color, immigrants, the working class and the LGBT community,” Woodside stated. “As a Missourian, I am appalled that we made and placed a bust of him in our State Capitol. He does not represent Missourians. He should not represent Missouri.”

The petition comprises one sentence: “Remove the Rush Limbaugh Bust from Missouri’s State Capitol,” and is addressed to Governor Jay Nixon and the members of the House and Senate. You can find the petition HERE.

For years, Rush Limbaugh has made constant offensive attacks on minorities, women, liberals, and the LGBT community. Here are 35 of his worst attacks that represent merely a fraction of his despicable remarks over the years. There has been no low to which Limbaugh won’t stoop to criticize those he hates. He has been a pox on America and an embarrassment to the people of Missouri. As a Missouri resident, I’m ashamed of Rush Limbaugh. He has no business being on radio and he certainly has no place among great Missourians such as Mark Twain and Walt Disney.

Since his shameful attack on Sandra Fluke, over 2,600 sponsors have pulled ads from his show and Clear Channel has lost millions of dollars because of the mass exodus of both listeners and sponsors. Perhaps the only thing Rush has left is his bust in the State Capitol and he should even lose that. A racist sexist drug addict who pushes hatred and fear has no right to be honored by government or anyone else for that matter. It’s time for Rush Limbaugh to leave the airwaves and take his bust with him.
