Thank Senator Yee for challenging Limbaugh's hate speech!
California state Senator Leland Yee has received death threats laced with racist slurs targeting both him and President Obama.
Why is this happening? Because Senator Yee had the courage to demand an apology from Rush Limbaugh after a racially-charged, on-air tirade directed against individuals of Chinese descent. Limbaugh then went after Yee personally on his radio program, and Limbaugh’s supporters responded by sending the death threats.
But Senator Yee isn’t backing down – he’s now leading the call for advertisers to stop supporting Rush Limbaugh’s hate speech.
Please add your name below to thank Senator Yee for standing up against hate:
UPDATE: Senator Yee's office has reported receiving even more threatening letters, including some that use a crosshairs graphic. Meanwhile, conservative activists have begun flooding Senator Yee's office with hundreds of calls that accually support Limbaugh's hateful remarks! It's now more important than ever to show Senator Yee that he's not alone in this fight:
