Skip to comments.I Hope Rush Limbaugh Gets Arrested

Liberal lawyer Gloria Allred wants Rush Limbaugh arrested. She may want to rethink this latest publicity stunt.
By the now the Left was sure that Rush Limbaugh would be off the air. His comments about Georgetown law Student Sandra Fluke and the list of companies that cancelled their advertising for his how had them dancing with glee. Their biggest political thorn in the flesh was going down. No such luck.
The outpouring of support for Rush Limbaugh has been overwhelming. Advertisers have been replaced. Rush has shown the utter hypocrisy of the mainstream media by pointing out the laundry list of liberal rants and verbal sexual attacks on conservative women. Even many in the media are commenting on it. For example, Kirsten Powers, a Fox News analyst, wrote Rush Limbaugh Isnt the Only Media Misogynist for the Daily Beast. Heres how she opens her article:
Did you know there is a war on women?
Yes, its 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.
Exactly! It never happened. But if Limbaughs actions demand a boycott and they do , Powers wrote, then what about the army of swine on the left? Boycotts are reserved for people on the right like Rush Limbaugh. . . .
An example of the double standard is Gloria Allred, the Lefts premier legal attack dog. She wants Limbaugh prosecuted for calling Fluke a slut and prostitute. She wrote a letter to the Palm Beach County State Attorney Michael McAuliffe asking whether Limbaugh had violated Section 836.04 of the Florida Statutes.
The statute stipulates that anyone who speaks of and concerning any woman, married or unmarried, falsely and maliciously imputing to her a want of chastity is guilty of a misdemeanor of the first degree. If Rush was found guilty, the maximum penalty would be one year in jail and a $1000 fine.
I would love to see this go to trial. Ms. Fluke would have to testify as to her sexual history. In doing so, it might confirm the very things Rush said about her. Witnesses would be called to testify. While I dont know how many sexual partners Ms. Fluke has had, but just to ask the questions would prove much more embarrassing to her.
Then the issue of the liberal double standard would be brought out. Theres so much of evidence of this that we might see liberal talkers brought to trial as well. We might even see some politicians face the judge. It would be heaven. You know Rush Limbaugh would have the best high-profile lawyers defending him. It would be Oliver North and Iran-Contra all over again. The best in free entertainment.
Liberals are trying to get around the double standard accusation by claiming that the conservative women who were verbally attacked with sexual barbs were public figures. As soon as Ms. Fluke agreed to speak out publicly on the birth control issue, she became a public figure. She has since appeared on a number of radio and television shows.
Liberal hypocrisy runs deep. Lets go to trial!
She should be disbarred, because you CAN’T get arrested for defamation, it is a civil trial.
Allred isn’t a REAL lawyer. She just plays one on the nightly news.
I agree he has done nothing to get arrested for. Personally, I believe he should have been more careful with his comments. He is a showman and makes heavy use of sarcasm...this we know... but the issue at hand is one that NEEDED to be discussed.
This is the issue of government coercing religious groups to do things that run contrary to their teachings and conscience.
As a result of Rush using derogatory language (and she should have known better) ... he became the story and has taken the focus away from the fact that the government is trampling on religion.
Everyone knows he’ll survive, but I think this will HUGELY elevate Rush’s profits, and already ALL conservatives are POUNCING on ANY lefty misogyny at all.
Complain, boycott, call —a page from the Lefty Book.
Freeze it, personalize it.
That woman should be arrested for being a freekin’ NUT! She’s one of those kind who will say or do anything to get attention.....and doesn’t care how much of a fool she makes of herself to get it! She makes me wanna puke!
It would probably guarantee a Republican victory in November and win the Senate as well as the House - BRING IT!
His intent was to take the focus away from Sherif Joe Arpiao's news conference.
Also heard on the way to work today 4 major sponsors who dropped him, their stocks plunged.
Sorry but HAHAHA!!!
Allred is a female Al Sharpton.
I agree! I think Rush realizes that too, based on the comments he made in his apology. He knew he screwed up an he owned up to it; but the left can't let go. For the left, unfortunately, an apology by a conservative is like blood in the water to sharks!
I wonder if the defendant not being in Florida at the time would affect how the law is applied?
The statute stipulates that anyone who speaks of and concerning any woman, married or unmarried, falsely and maliciously imputing to her a want of chastity is guilty of a misdemeanor of the first degree.
Why, there must be some small print under this law, surely, that exempts rappers???
She heard something was happening involving a woman, and she was being left out - so now she's injecting herself into the fray with these asinine comments.
Rush has done nothing to be arrested for."
Why isn't she still busy representing the tart who accused Herman Cain? Funny how she and Allred just dropped off the map....
Agree. Obama is loving the distraction.
