In the United States Rush Limbaugh, a popular conservative talk show host, called a pro-contraception freeloading Georgetown
University law student a “slut” for advocating that the federal government- or the American taxpayers- should pay for people’s birth control.
I believe Limbaugh did the right thing, by calling the 30-year-old liberal law student “a slut”. The conservative talk show host said:
“What does it say about the college co-ed Susan (sic) Fluke who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex — what does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She’s having so much sex she can’t afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex.”
The problem is, Limbaugh apologized and then faulted his “choice of words.” “My choice of words was not the best, and in the attempt to be humorous, I created a national stir. I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for the insulting word choices,” he said.
The Limbaugh-Fluke issue exposed, not merely the weakness in the anti-contraception stand of American conservatives but also the hypocrisy of the liberal left.
This site made a correct observation:
This faux feminism by far left nuts and their usurper media hacks is quite hilarious. I haven’t really followed the whole Rush Limbaugh / Sandra Fluke “controversy.” While name calling is a left wing tactic, there’s also something in America called freedom of speech. Or at least there used to be. I guess Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke a “slut” or something on one of his radio broadcasts. As usual, the hypocritical leftists have gone batsh*t crazy, taking the media along with them. Calls to boycott Limbaugh’s advertisers from Marxist leftists have so far claimed five Limbaugh sponsors: Quicken Loans, Legal Zoom, Sleep Train, Sleep Number andCarbonite. Limbaugh even apologized for the “slut” remark.These are private companies, they can do what they want, but they better be prepared to suffer the consequences from conservatives who use or used their products. Now I will ask the following question. If Rush Limbaugh calling Sandra Fluke a slut was so terrible, then where was the same outrage against idiots like Bill Maher, David Letterman, Ed Schultz or Montel Williams? These four leftists are just a small sample of leftists who have called conservative woman sluts “or worse.” Yet, there was no media outrage, no advertisers pulling ads, and crickets from leftists who support “women’s rights.” Lets review some examples.
Yes, Limbaugh should not have apologized for his choice of words and should have called that college student liberal a more appropriate term: “freeloading, hypocritical worthless slut.”
This site also observes:
Oh the world is in an uproar. Thirty year old Georgetown law student Sandra Flukes went in front of Congress claiming to have so much sex throughout the year that she can’t afford birth control–despite Planned Parenthood, college campuses, and even high schools handing out free condoms and condoms are quite cheap at Walmart. Of course, those on the right had much fun at Flukes’ expense as another ugly liberal woman is complaining about getting laid. It’s always the ugly liberal woman that try to build their sex lives up to Wilt Chamberlain levels to promote their big government agendas.
In this case, Fluke thinks someone else should pay for her birth control so she can truly live without any responsibilities. She thinks the government should force people to pay for her birth control.
Here’s a Facebooker’s comment on this site:
WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE FROM Liberals and ADVERTISERS FOR THESE WORDS?:
Bill Maher: “Sarah Palin is a stupid C_nt.”
Ed Schultz: “Laura Ingraham is a right-wing sl-t.”
Keith Olbermann: “Michele Bachmann is a mashed-up bag of meat with lipstick on it.”
… David Letterman: “Sarah Palin dresses like a slu–y flight attendant.”
David Letterman: “There was an awkward moment for Sarah Palin at the Yankee game. During the 7th inning, her daughter was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez.”
Willow Palin is 14 years old!! Where were the Left when these men spewed their venom? SILENT…..and ALL of them are still spewing it to date…..ya know your hypocrisy is getting quite thick these days!
Now, I also have the same message to the pro-RH bill creatures in the Philippines who advocate government funding of condoms and contraceptives: PAY FOR YOUR OWN BIRTH CONTROL, SLUTS!!!
