The "Fluke" Of Feminism
Self | 9/3/12 | Me

Posted on 09/03/2012 1:56:22 PM PDT by xuberalles

Democrats are so out of touch, so delusional, they have given Sandra Fluke a prominent speaking platform at their convention. If you remember correctly, Fluke was the thirty year-old, feminist student at Georgetown who testified before Congress as a supposed victim of economic discrimination; i.e., Georgetown’s most affordable health plan – an annual $1559 policy - didn’t cover her need for “condoms” because oral contraceptives were not safe. Disregarding the fact that Miss Fluke is thirty years-old, and free condoms can routinely be found at health clinics and colleges across America, what does this say about personal responsibility, let alone common sense? And what about her supposed male suitors? Were they equally incapable of purchasing a box of condoms, abstaining until they had money, let alone procuring a part-time job; something millions of teenagers do every year? If your health is truly that important, wouldn’t any rationale human being sacrifice that Starbucks latte, one night at the bar, that Code Pink donation, in order to purchase contraception? Apparently, unlike law school, life doesn’t come with instructions.

The real tragedy of this choreographed charade is that millions of hard working, responsible Americans cannot put gas in their tanks or food on their table; even worse, they are losing their homes, their children, their very lives. Furthermore, there are countless "victims" who are suffering from real maladies - Cancer, MS, Diabetes, Alzheimers, Parkinsons, etc - who could careless about the financial rigors of a 75 cent condom.

Yet, amidst this “real” national tragedy, Democrats have the gall to put this woman front and center as a tool of demagoguery solely to cement their imaginary, “war on women”, election theme and to propagate the “irrefutable” need for Obamacare; which, by the way, is largely responsible for skyrocketing health premiums in the first place. If our so-called President and his devoted followers actually believe Sandra Fluke is representative of the current plight of this nation – chronic unemployment, massive debt, record foreclosures, inflation, a worthless currency – they have completely abandoned the American people, the American Dream, altogether.

If a political party cannot differentiate between priorities and propaganda, progressivism and patriotism, how can they be trusted to solve, let alone recognize, our most pressing issues? Sadly, though most fittingly, our confused liberal friends could have learned a lot from Utah Congressional candidate, Mia Love; a self-made woman, responsible mother, and recent RNC spokeswoman who immigrated from impoverished Haiti. Yet, guess which indelible inspiration the Democratic Party chose to honor instead? And guess which woman the unbiased media will relentlessly promote as the voice of this new generation of victimized women? Well, because silence often speaks far more than minced words, I’m going to my hometown health clinic here in rural America. There will be no cameras, sensational headlines, or Greek columns to announce the grandeur of my presence or my cause. Therefore, in the anecdotes of altruism, the pages that bind the guiding principles of our lives, I leave Sandra Fluke with this final footnote: instructions are on the way!

To democrats - the “war on women” means the government should pay for birth control and abortions.

I hope they run with this issue. I hope they do.

If this idiot is not capable of handling her life and needs a condom to protect herself because she is afraid that the idiot she is sleeping with is not healthy or an idiot she can call me.

I will give her a couple of quarters so she can go down to the service station and buy a fancy condom. God, i would not want any of her offspring in this world.

See, it won’t cost the government (taxpayer) anything. We really don’t need any of these idiots to reproduce.

Rush is right, she is a whore.

Blessings, bobo

Please,stop spreading the falsehood that she testified before congress.She testified before a house oversight committee.
I’m tired of the adulation afforded this little nobody.
Another orchestrated moment by the Obama administration.
We will have to look at this woman for the next 30 yrs as she glides into prominence in the Democrat party.

Your splitting hairs..the oversight committee is still composed of members of Congress. The main point, and I agree, is that her fabricated importance is ridiculous and insulting to say the least.

It is so amazing that after decades of the “if it feels good do it” movement shouting about keeping government out of the bedroom they want us to pay for everything which goes on or comes out of that same bedroom.

AIDS, abortions, contraceptives, and if all those “failed” pay for their kids they did not want.

We have to get some wordsmiths on the right to counter these dregs of society.

it is a pathetic state of affairs when a non-entity like Sandra Fluke is chosen to deliver a seminal speech at THE convention of a “major” political party. She will NOT go over well with any of the “undecideds”, but will instead come across as a classic special-interest whiner, bitching and moaning over what she and her compatriots think they’re “owed” by society at large. I hope she receives the ridicule she so richly deserves.

I think you’ve hit on something!’
A PUBLIC campaign where we could all chip in a few cents each to provide Sandra with a lifetime supply of condoms she could hand over to all her boyfriends would highlight the absurdity of her demands, and better than that, make the Party she speaks for look like the A-holes they are.
I think we should do it! As good, caring Republicans!

Fluke is a vicious evil social parasite. She intentionally enrolled in a Catholic school for the specific purpose of desecrating and destroying their moral principles.

This thirtysomething-year-old giant Code Pink walking vagina has an ugly lesbian looking demeanor. She will never hold an honest job or function any useful capacity in society. She’s a professional Democratic Party lamprey, sucking the life out of useful and functioning real human beings.

All in all, I can’t think of a more perfect speaker at the Democratic national convention. She’s the perfect epitome of this corrupt, evil criminal organization.

Enforced by the brute force of government.

For that she deserves to burn in the hottest pits of Hell for all of eternity.

Note to Fluke defenders out there: "Don't you now wish I'd just let it go with 'slut', like Rush did?".

As pointed out above, Fluke never testified before Congress (she was rightfully denied as a witness by the Republicans under the 72-hour rule for naming witnesses; the Democrats tried to slip her in at 4:45 p.m. the evening before the actual hearing.

However, what you remember 'correctly' has nothing whatsoever to do with what Fluke said. Fluke began her statement by saying she was speaking for other woman and not herself. She then told the specific (and in most cases, ridiculous) stories of six other women. Fluke never said a word about her sex life, whether she used contraceptives, or the cost of her contraceptives, or the cost or number of condoms that anybody used. If you think she did, then you should read a transcript of her statement.

I can’t imagine that Fluke actually spent more than $.10 in a year on actual contraceptive expenses. To paraphrase an old lawyers joke, she has the worlds best contraceptive: her vile personality.

Not really. When I lived near Seattle in the 1990's, a tribe of Native Americans decided that they wanted to live in 14th century conditions; no modern appliances, housing, medical care, any of it.

Years later they came back out of the woods and sued the government because, living in the 14th century, about 1/3 of the pregnancies ended in still births or miscarriages, and some how that was the white man's fault as well. And the white man had to pay for it.

When people are addicted to entitlement, the cure is not pleasant or quick.

She can’t afford birth control,but she can afford all her travel expenses?.Who is paying for that? Do I really need to ask?

Was that really what her testimony was about?

I thought Fluke's testimoney was about supposed unnamed friends of hers who were denied oral contraceptives for theraputic use (even though Georgetown U's plan covered them for theraputic use).

Anyone know?

Thank you.

That’s what I remember of her testimony and I didn’t remember anything about condoms.

People are hurting our case (1A for religious institutions and employers) by making false statements about her testimony.

Thou shall not bear false witness.

Her testimony has plenty in it to criticize on 1A grounds. Lets stick to the facts PLEASE!

This moron does not even know that after her usefulness is over mac daddies group of plantation slaves will not even remember her name.

Future males who need a tramp for the night will give her a call and arrive without any protection because they expect her to have plenty due to the fact that she is unable to afford them on her own so the government helps her due to her busy and active sex life with whoever smiles at her.

I think you are right about what she actually said...but people came away with the impression that she was talking about her own situation.

It's a bit like Clinton's infamous letter about "loathing the military"--he carefully worded it so that he is supposedly talking about the views of people he admires, not himself.

Fluke’s testimony

http://abcnews.go.com/images/Politics/statement-Congress-letterhead-2nd%20hearing.pdf

There is nothing in there about condoms.

There is plenty in there to argue with. A big one for me is her testimony was mostly hearsay. She refers over and over to anonymous people who have said this and that happened to them ... but there is no way of checking any of these stories out. I don’t consider that valid evidence to back up what she is saying.

I think you are right about what she actually said...but people came away with the impression that she was talking about her own situation.

That's because they took Rush Limbaugh's spin as gospel, and Limbaugh had never heard Fluke's speech before he started riffing on it. He specifically stated that he had a news article from some conservative service and he spoke from that. Most people on FR never heard or read a transcript of Fluke's speech; they are just repeating what Limbaugh said.

In fact, Fluke's speech was worse. She spoke of six women. One had been raped but didn't go for STD testing because she assumed that, if birth control wasn't covered, nothing related to her vagina was covered.

Another was a married woman who had to abandon all birth control when her particular brand of oral contraceptive was no longer covered. A third was a woman who lost her feeling of empowerment as a woman and could not buy contraceptives after she found they were no longer covered under her plan.

Conservatives commentators, including Limbaugh, would have had a field days with what Fluke actually said - but instead we lost the battle when he went off with the 'slut' comments, the 'round-heeled' comments, the 'it's a miracle she can walk after all that sex' comments, the 'base and immoral' for having so much sex comments.

Fluke never talked about her own sex life. She told some ridiculous stories about other women that could have been torn apart, but we lost that moral high ground the moment Limbaugh started lying about Fluke's sex life and calling her a slut.

Limbaugh totally derailed the real issue .... which is religious freedom under the 1st Amendment ... which we will never get to talk about now.
