Rush Limbaugh ProFlowers Ads Fuel the War on Women | My 350,000 Readers Say Flowers Buy Peace, Not War
ProFlowers has used its Facebook page to assure American women that the company doesn’t support the views of Rush Limbaugh in his continued verbal assault against Georgetown University student Sandra Fluke.
I’ve read in the last 15 minutes that Limbaugh has posted an apology to Sandra Fluke on his website. This announcement came after another story that ProFlowers had changed their position minutes ago, to reconsider their relationship with Limbaugh.
It’s too late. Rush Limbaugh is a repugnant person with no respect for civil discourse or women.
I am personally asking our 350,000 AOC and Sensuality News readers to consider buying their flowers from another service than Pro Flowers. As an American I support ProFlowers’ right to advertise where they choose. But we don’t have to support their choice of voices to spread the Proflowers message.
As a Smart Sensuality woman — smart, sensual, and spiritual with heart — I love flowers — as do most of my readers and friends. If flowers are anything like lingerie, about 90% of the sales are made by women. I ask you — why do we want to support ProFlowers who associates their brand with Rush Limbaugh and his misogynistic views on women?
An apology from Rush Limbaugh doesn’t suffice. ProFlowers supporting Rush Limbaugh is ProFlowers supporting the Republican War on Women. Think about that fact the next time you want to order flowers for your mom, daughter, sister, wife. You are putting money into Rush Limbaugh’s war on me — the woman he calls a feminazi.
I ask you, with my longstanding record of trying to help American woman and impoverished, burned, flogged, stoned-to-death women everywhere in the world — does this passion for women really make me a feminazi? What is wrong with America today? Have we gone totally insane?
It’s personal now between Rush Limbaugh, the Republican War on Women and me. If you admire me and Anne of Carversville, I ask you not to support Pro Flowers as long as they support Rush Limbaugh. ProFlowers supports a man who despises women — unless they are good girls who do as they are told by big shots like Rush.
Have we had enough? Say ”yes’. I beg you, please take action and say ‘yes’ before it is too late in America for our daughters and granddaughters. Find a friendly to women florist. We will post the alternatives by Monday, after careful research. ~Anne Enke
