Despite furor, Limbaugh refuses to back down on criticism of Sandra Fluke (Good! Never retreat)
msnbc ^ | 3/2/2012 | nbc

Posted on 03/02/2012 6:21:30 PM PST by tobyhill

Despite an outcry that has crossed political lines, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh did not back down Friday from his criticism of a Georgetown student who advocated for the availability of birth control at a recent hearing before congressional Democrats.

During his latest show, he mocked the fact that Sandra Fluke received a phone call from President Barack Obama, insisting that given her testimony about birth control, she should "disconnect the phone. I'd go into hiding and hope the media didn't find me."

Limbaugh also denied he was opposed to birth control, according to a transcript of his show. “This is about expanding the reach and power of government into your womb, if you're a woman. This is about the Democrat Party wanting more and more control over you. What was early feminism all about? Emancipation, individuality, freedom, liberation, all of these things. Now here comes Danica Patrick out and she says, "I'm perfectly comfortable letting the government make my health decisions for me." Well, folks, I'm gonna tell you: Right there, that's the death and the end of feminism.”

Has MSNBC acknowledged that Fluke is NOT a “23 yr-old coed, but a 30 yr-old LIBERAL ACTIVIST who ‘enrolled’ at Georgetown a week ago so she could fake some feminazi agitprop, yet???

Do you have a source for the fact that she only enrolled a week ago? I had heard about her age being 30, not 23, but the enrollment info is HUGE and I would like a source before I repeat it.

Thanks!

Yep. It won’t be long now before women are forced into back alleys for contraceptives, or degraded into swapping recipes for birth control pills.

/sarcasm. :-)

I heard the Statement Rush Limbaugh made and he said nothing that would not have been self evident to any normal person who also listened to the statement that the bimbo made to congress.

Why else would MS. Fluke have to spend Three Grand for birth control.Only someone who lives a promiscuous lifestyle would nee to spend that kind of money.

Why should the Tax Payers have to pay for her Sexual Gratification?

Never back down when you are right, Go Rush. Correct me where I am wrong but if I understand the situation correctly, first this girl claims she has absolutely no self control, and because of this she wants me to pay for her to have sex, but we already gave her a second choice to have the much coveted abortion, I thought women gained a second chance with abortion. Seems to me that all these Women are freely admitting that they Are Irresponsible and incapable of controlling their own emotions and lives, so Why Do We Let WOMEN VOTE?? They are incapable of self control according to, well, themselves.

She is also a liar. Walmart/target birth control pills in Georgetown are nine bucks a month. That is roughly one-tenth the three grand over three years she insisted it cost every girl there. A huge liberal liar and also, proving to all that girls are really bad at math.

One day this lass will want a real job, and what will they find?? TRASH, she is doomed now to the Jerry Springer shows and/or porn. Every thing put on Facebook or utube can and will be used against you with HR., and now there is a tape. Stupid little lass.

Is there a man in her future??? ANYONE out there, speak up, barely used & lots of life yet. rofl

I heard the other day that Walmart sells birth control for $4, so ~ $50 a year. And, if you add in a VERY expensive Dr’s appt, maybe out of pocket $300. 1/10 of the $3000 claimed.

Funny you asked, "Why do we let women vote?"

I am a woman, and believe me I have asked the same question.I have met so many women that DON'T HAVE A CLUE about much of anything.

They don't like confrontations, they want NICE and everyone to get along. BOY DO THOSE TYPES BORE ME. Course they don't like me cause I speak my mind, tough. Point is, if you don't want my opinion don't ask.

RECIND THE RIGHT FOR WOMEN TO VOTE.lol

I hope that Rush starts any further discussion of Sandra Fluke by giving a rundown on her history of democrat activism. She has been groomed for the role she now plays as a discriminated against poor struggling college student. Fluke is living a lie and it is impossible for those who are publicly supporting her not to know her background.

...Rush Limbaugh did not back down Friday from his criticism of a Georgetown student who advocated for the availability of birth control...

"Availability of birth control?" A month's supply of the generic "pill" is available for $7 for a 30-day supply at Target.

The issue is they want to force the Catholic Church to pay for contraceptives.

We need to shove that point down their throats.

The last time I checked, birth control pills were not dispensed by HOW MANY TIMES a month you had sex; if you are on “the pill”, it takes care of the month, not the number of times you get poked. I took them way back in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. Surely they haven’t changed that much. Well, unless you run to the RX and get a day after pill...which is kinda stupid if you are having sex daily. That girl is a slut.

“Three Grand for birth control.Only someone who lives a promiscuous”

Since contraception fails about ten percent of the time and she is doing it every day or so, the three thousand dollars must include the need for abortions two or three times a year.

Boy are you getting yourself into the HOT SEAT, rofl. (not with me), put take cover now.

Military service: idiots and the idiots that allows it, their choice.

Public Service: Directing traffic in a school zone, fine with me, working Red Cross centers, ok.

Just don't give them to much to think about, or any decisions to make.

OK, out there, we are just having some fun, don't get your knickers in a bunch. I'm a woman, I'm intitled.

As I posted on a Yahoo comments board, her Parents must be so proud to know she does guys that don't even think she is worth the price of a Condom.

Since Steffy Stepanonsense brought this planted “contraception” crap up at the January Republican Debate it's been like watching a traffic accident in slow motion. You know it's coming, but you have no idea how bad it could get.

As I always say, Republicans hope people are smart, but Democrats know people are stupid. If this debacle hasn't proved that point, I don't know what will.

Meanwhile Obama uses the Constitution as kindling while nobody sees a thing. It is downright scary.

Yep, I agree:

How about this: $3k/3yr at law school = $1k/yr, $1k/365day = $2.75/day, so, at $0.50/condom... $2.75/0.50 = 5.5 acts of sex per day for each year of law school.

Yep, she is a slut. (Just like BotoxNancy that pranced her on the public stage).

I will sooner go to jail than pay any ‘0pansy mandate’ to help this, or any other slut like her!

the pill is less than ten dollars a month.

But a condom cost a bit more. If she had a regular boyfriend she wouldn’t have to use a condom (unless he was known to have had HIV or Herpes). So the amount she quotes suggests she is using quite a few condoms also, and this suggests several partners.

Ergo, she is a slut. (In medical term: at risk for HIV due to having several sexual partners).

Lewinsky didn't have to worry about getting pregnant unless a nice Churchill Cohiba can do the trick. Funny how people forget that Clinton sodomized the girl for a cheap thrill.

I have more respect for her than I do this 30 Year Old “activist”. Fluke had the wisdom of age to help her make her decisions, Lewinsky did not.

She was used by Clinton the way the House Democrats are using Fluke. The difference is, Lewinsky felt shame and remorse. Fluke celebrates her ignorance for all to see.

But let's not forget, it's all Rush's fault. He must have had Snerdly fly up to D.C. and chauffeur Ms. Fluke to the hearing like a modern day Driving Miss Daisy.
