NC realtor smacks down Stop Rush bullies: ‘I will advertise wherever I damn well please’

Leigh Brown is a Charlotte, N.C., area RE/MAX franchisee who calls herself the “no BS realtor,” and she more than lives up to that tagline on Twitter.

This week, Brown was targeted by the Stop Rush bully brigade after her business was entered into their database of Rush Limbaugh sponsors. Behold the Twitter thuggery:

WBT 11.26 @leighbrownremax ‘no b/s realtor’ but lies are ok? ads during Limbaugh say yes. plz move to a non-hate grid #StopRush

When I up-size next year, I’m going to avoid @remax altogether, because @leighbrownremax sullies the the whole brand’s name. 🙁 #stoprush

@leighbrownremax You really don’t think that you can run ads on Limbaugh in a vacuum do you? #stopRush

Assoc. with Rush Limbaugh’s misogyny/racism image destroyed Romney & may harm @leighbrownremax as diverse USA rejects that image #stoprush

War on Women! Oh, you mean like the one the Stop Rush crowd is waging against a successful, self-made female entrepreneur?

The OCD crowd at #stoprush still harassing @leighbrownremax 4 advertising w/ @limbaugh. Their own personal #waronwomen #tcot #p2 #hypocrites

The trolls and thugs came out to play, but Brown swatted them away.

This is how you biz owners handle the stopRush loonies: twitter.com/leighbrownrema…

Unlike Arby’sWalgreen’s and other craven corporations, Brown wasn’t about to cave to their threats. “I will advertise wherever I damn well please. You trolls don’t like it, don’t listen,” she tweeted in defense of the free market.

If you’re looking for a realtor in the Charlotte area who thinks with her lady smarts, not her lady parts, Brown is your woman.

@eurekasue49 I am a woman and I am more than a vagina. I’ll advertise where I please. oh, and i’m smart as hell. #stopmsnbc #tcot

Supporters rallied around Brown as the Stop Rush crowd continued their assault.

@leighbrownremax They hate anyone they control. It’s a badge of honor to be “hated” by the anti @limbaugh losers. #tcot #p2

— Greta (@Viasmom) November 29, 2012

@leighbrownremax I applaud you. Thank you for standing up for what you believe. You are a great American.

Now following @leighbrownremax because her tweets are full of win and yet somehow, her bio is even better. #tcot

Brown isn’t the only small business owner in the Stop Rush crosshairs. The Stop Rush database contains thousands of businesses, large and small, that have reportedly committed the atrocious crime of advertising on local stations during Limbaugh’s program.

Yes, the economy is in the toilet and these Rush-obsessed whiners are still freaking out about Limbaugh’s supposed War on Women and hatred of minorities. Of course, unlike the economy, Rush will be doin’ just fine. And it looks like Leigh Brown will be too:

.@leighbrownremax I suspect many will seek this agent for views in light of her courage! We conservatives w/$ applaud you! @remax #stoprush

— #StopMSNBC (@VTwinCrucible) November 29, 2012

@leighbrownremax I can honestly say if I lived near Charlotte, I would buy a home utilizing your services ; )

@leighbrownremax if I am ever in the market in Charlotte you will be the first I call and everyone less should too! #IamTheFreeMarket #tcot
