Sandra Fluke promotes gay marriage to 'sleepy' college audience
LIFESITE ^ | Ben Johnson

Sandra Fluke, whom feminists had touted as the voice of a new generation, got the silent treatment from a bored and lackadaisical audience of college students during a 45-minute speech at Northwestern University on Monday night.

Fluke reportedly fumbled awkwardly as the young adults ignored her verbal cues for their participation.

“I have to tell you that here in Illinois, the number one point on the agenda is – ” she said, expecting a rousing reply. In time, she whispered her own answer, “Gay marriage.”

“I can tell you’re passionate by your response,” she joked after deafening silence.

Fluke told the crowd they were part of a new, “pro-equality coalition” that powered Barack Obama to re-election and would keep America moving leftward, to their manifest indifference.

Joseph Diebold, web editor of the student newspaper The Daily Northwestern, described the crowd as “sleepy.”

Seemingly acknowledging the unpopularity of her robust, socially liberal agenda, the feminist activist said the president's window of opportunity is closing.

“The thing about it is, we don’t have that much time,” she said. “When the electorate puts progressives into office, you get a certain amount of time to really deliver on what you promised before everybody decides to go back to the, ‘This isn’t working for me. I’m going to switch strategies again.’”

The inaction calls into question either how passionate students are to redefine marriage, or how engaging Fluke is as a speaker.

Her hosts appreciated her effort. “I thought that her message was great,” said Adam Roth, president of Northwestern University Campus Democrats, which invited Fluke to campus. He noted since 2012, both Obama and Fluke are “focused much more on social issues.”

The rhetorical dud was not the first time Fluke flopped as a speaker. At a campaign stop in Reno last October, at the height of the campaign season, she drew 10 people as an Obama surrogate.

After giving a prime time speech at the 2012 Democratic National Convention, Fluke has hit the campus speaking circuit, promoting the HHS mandate and causes such as letting transgender soldiers join the military.

Fluke said last May she had been urged to run for office and would entertain the possibility.

“We need more Debbie Wasserman Schultzes,” she said.

But first she has to keep an audience awake.

Rush was the best thing that ever happened to her, and she repeatedly fails to close the deal.

Gay marriage number one? Seriously?

Over one of the worst economies in the nation, punitively high taxes, widespread corruption, a legislature that refuses to comply with the Second Amendment and let its citizens protect themselves, Chicago becoming the murder capital of America . . . .

I love the way the libtards characterisze their terms in office whan a ‘progressive’ is elected.

They say that people change their mind and “it isn’t workign for me” so lets go back to somethign else..

Well that is not accurate at all- THEY LIE to get into office and then only have a limitted amount of because people FINALLY CATCH ON TO THEM

Why are people acting like this woman is someone we should listen to! Her only claim to fame is the fact that she spreads her legs to every man who crosses her path. One more thing; she demands that we pay for it.

She keeps popping up like a genital wart.

A very apt description of her.

Sometimes I think people like her get in front of the mike and hope that they get protested. In this way they get victim status and the lapdog media picks up their cause and runs with it. Sometimes the best thing to do is what this audience did, kill her with silence and non-interest. Like any media ho, she'll crawl back to whatever liberal think tank spawned her and we won't hear from her again.

Most guys get sleepy afterwards. Maybe her speaking wasn’t what they came for.

She must be a lesbian. Otherwise why the switch to gay marriage when she still hasn’t got her free contraceptives?

Just paid well. Everyone has a price. Hers is self respect in exchange for Liberal adulation and a sizable check.

Many students are sent by their left wing profs in their genders tudies and brainwashing 101 classes to these leftie lectures, as either a mandatory requriement or for extra credit. For most, their thoughts are likely on the upcoming spring break and not the speaker.

“Doesn’t she know gay marriages don’t require contraception?”

I as a member of this society, might actually be willing to pay for her contraceptives - for the same reasons that I pay the Mosquito Abatement District.

"...Doggie love...."

Dogs have civil rights too. I should be able to claim my dog as a dependent on my Income Tax. My dog is a better citizen than Bammy.

My dog loves to go to the gun range (tho’ she has to stay in the car/truck/SUV when not retrieving things in the parking lot).

Hey Sandra, you twit!

It’s a bigger cookie for kids attending a $50,000 a year university to be more concerned about a job and paying their debts rather than gay marriage and other “social issues”.

Get a clue, will ya? Better yet....get lost!
