Powers: Rush Limbaugh Isn’t the Only Media Misogynist

Rush Limbaugh Isn’t the Only Media Misogynist

Dailybeast

Did you know there is a war on women?

Yes, it’s true. Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann, Bill Maher, Matt Taibbi, and Ed Schultz have been waging it for years with their misogynist outbursts. There have been boycotts by people on the left who are outraged that these guys still have jobs. Oh, wait. Sorry, that never happened.

Boycotts are reserved for people on the right like Rush Limbaugh, who finally apologized Saturday for calling a 30-year-old Georgetown Law student, Sandra Fluke, a “slut” after she testified before congress about contraception. Limbaugh’s apology was likely extracted to stop the departure of any more advertisers, who were rightly under pressure from liberal groups outraged by the comments.

Let it be shouted from the rooftops that Rush Limbaugh should not have called Ms. Fluke a slut or, as he added later, a “prostitute” who should post her sex tapes. It’s unlikely that his apology will assuage the people on a warpath for his scalp, and after all, why should it? He spent days attacking a woman as a slut and prostitute and refused to relent. Now because he doesn’t want to lose advertisers, he apologizes. What’s in order is something more like groveling—and of course a phone call to Ms. Fluke—if you ask me.

But if Limbaugh’s actions demand a boycott—and they do—then what about the army of swine on the left?

    Kirsten Powers can be your typical Liberal sock sniffer, but I was impressed with this column. Her point is one that many of us on the right have been saying since this faux scandal erupted. Had Sandra Fluke been appearing before Congress to urge fiscal restraint and respect for the Constitution and individual liberty, I’m guessing Liberal Cretins like Ed Schultz, Bill Maher, Chris Matthews, and that disgusting guy Rachel Maddow would have called her every name in the book.

    We already knew Ms. F. was a fornicator. Now we also know her price.

    Rush’s apology still doesn’t erase the glaring fact that Fluke is still America’s Slut.

    Who can look at Monica Lewisnky years after the fact and not think of pyronie’s and cigars?

    This whole thing is not even news worthy. A private citizen called a private citizen a slut. It just so happens one of the private citizens has a radio program and the other one went before congress and said that she wants the rest of society to pay for her to be a slut.

    This is stupid. Stop being a sleazy slut and take responsibility for your own life.

    And I disagree with her article, there was no need for Rush to apologize. He should have stood on principles. More businesses would have come in to fill up the ad slots.

    I agree with what they said on the other post, this is all a distraction….

    Rush jumped the shark by apologizing. He could have just quietly walked away, but instead, offered up his scalp. He is essentially over.

    Exit question…Kirsten was a Bill Clinton hanger oner, wasn’t she? Should we consider her a nut or a, um, er, the Clinton Administration term of slut?

    Did she really testify before Congress? I thought it was just a Democrat-orchestrated propaganda photo-op for the Pravda media.

    The double standard with the media is astonishing.
    Rush’s sincere apology (it was not minced with ‘I’m sorry you misunderstood me’, etc.) is proof that conservatives hold themselves to a higher standard.

    Impressive, she got this one right. Hopefully it is not ignored because she is a FOX commentator.

    The take away lesson from all of this is: NEVER, NEVER, NEVER apologize to a liberal. ALWAYS counter attack. Never retract, never explain, never apologize. Speak the truth and let them howl.
    Dear MS Sandra Fluke, not only are you a slut, but you are a greedy, evil, self centered, immature SLUT. I dont give a damn about your feeling either. If you want money for your birth prevention devices/medications, then sell yourself via porno tapes. One of these days, your behavior will come back to haunt you and bite you in the ass. Karma meet bitch.

    “But if Limbaugh’s actions demand a boycott—and they do—then what about the army of swine on the left?”

    No, Kirsten, I don’t agree with that statement. I also don’t think he owed her an apology. She made her bed. What did Palin, Bachman, Christine O’Donnell do that was on par with this woman’s whining at Pelosi’s press conference that warranted all your lefty buddies’name calling??

    And you keep plugging that meme that Rush apologized because he was losing sponsors. Hah! He has scads of companies waiting in the wings and just laughed at the idiots that left his gravy train.

    Other than being one of the few (if not the only) decent looking liberal chick, Kristen Powers is for the most part full of shit.

    Why isn’t anyone on the left talking about men paying for birth control? What has made it a female-only question?

    And why is the left calling for free contraceptives, not free chemotherapy or free physical therapy or something else that truly is a MEDICAL issue?
