Holiday shoppers hijack ‘Stop Rush’ database to support Limbaugh sponsors

Editor’s note: See update at the bottom of this post before using the Stop Rush database.

Last week Twitchy told you about Leigh Brown, the “no BS realtor” who slapped down the Twitter thugs who targeted her business after it was added to the Stop Rush database of Rush Limbaugh sponsors.

But Brown’s RE/MAX franchise is far from the only business being threatened by anti-Rush goons. The Stop Rush database contains thousands of businesses, large and small. And each and every day, the Twitter bully brigade uses the database to aid its campaign against those who commit the high crime of advertising on Limbaugh’s program.

This holiday season note that @powersjewelry bankrolls sexist sleaze of hate radio when choosing jeweler. #BOYCOTT #stoprush

@skyline_chili Limbaugh’s audience demographics are 66+, rural, hang effigies on front yard tree. Your target population? #stoprush

@oaklandnursery WTVN runs your ad on Limbaugh which means you fund he anti-women, anti-minority hate talk. #stoprush

>>@argolehne Given male & female rape stats, why would you fund Limbaugh whose rhetoric promotes & minimizes sexual violence? #stoprush

But like Leigh Brown, happy warriors are fighting back by letting these businesses know that ignoring the bullies will pay off. Instead of using the Stop Rush database to boycott Limbaugh sponsors, they’re hijacking it for a Christmas shopping buycott.

Here is a list of companies to buy from this Christmas…thanks to the idiots over at #StopRush for supplying this! 🙂 stoprush.net/rush_limbaugh_…

The Stop Rush database even has a handy search function so you can find small businesses that advertise on your local station. Happy shopping!

Update:

Some of the Stop Rush crew and a couple of Twitchy commenters say that searching the database automatically spams sponsors.

Trolls don’t realize searching database auto contacts sponsors. Dumbasses! @coopster04 #stoprush

Automated email harassment? Classy! And just about the only thing that could make these tools appear even less credible.

If anyone has more info on this, please leave a comment below. If true, it’s easy enough to see what businesses these spammers are targeting by keeping an eye on the #StopRush hashag on Twitter.

But it’s likely businesses will filter out a flood of carbon copy hate mail anyway. As Twitchy commenter WisconsinPatriot notes:

I am certain that form hate mail from a source such as that, would be ignored or disposed of. If they are aware that WE are using it for good(not evil), maybe they will use it as a sales forecasting tool. Just a thought.

If you patronize any of these businesses, be sure to let them know how you found them and that the hate mail is coming from spammers, not a large number of angry consumers.

Update:

We have yet to see any evidence that the database auto-contacts Rush’s sponsors. Color us skeptical, but again, please let us know if a sponsor confirms that it’s happening.
