Wasserman Schultz Says Calling Women Sluts Isn't Funny - Two Months After Doing Maher's Show By Noel Sheppard Created 03/04/2012 - 7:14pm
Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (R-Fla.), in response to the Rush Limbaugh-Sandra Fluke controversy, told the host of Meet the Press Sunday, "I don't know any woman in America, David, that thinks that being called a slut is funny."
This hysterically comes less than two months after the Florida Congresswoman appeared on vulgarian Bill Maher's HBO program Real Time (video follows with transcript and commentary):
REPRESENTATIVE DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ (D-FLORIDA): Then the other news in contraception this week was Rush Limbaugh criticizing a young law student who stood up and said, look, at Georgetown Law School, not only am I required to pay for my own health insurance because Georgetown Law requires all students to pay for health insurance, but contraception's not covered. And what did he do? He called her a slut. A slut. And now I'm sorry, I know he apologized, but forgive me if I doubt his sincerity given that he lost at least six advertisers. And the bottom line is that the leading candidate on the Republican side for president couldn't even bring himself to call Rush Limbaugh's comments outrageous and call him out and ask him to apologize.
DAVID GREGORY, HOST: You're talking about Mitt Romney.
REP. SCHULTZ: Yes. Mitt Romney. What, what woman in America--and Rush Limbaugh, in that apology, said that he was trying to be humorous. I don't know any woman in America, David, that thinks that being called a slut is funny.
But Maher thinks that's funny and so do his fans.
On March 18, 2011, to cheers and applause, the host of HBO's Real Time called former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin a "dumb twat."
Then, according to the Dallas Voice, while performing at the Winspear Opera House nine days later, Maher called Palin a "cunt."
If slut is so offensive to Wasserman Schultz, shouldn't "dumb twat" and "cunt" also be?
Apparently not for on January 13, 2012, the Congresswoman appeared on Maher's HBO show.
I guess disgusting misogynistic terms are only inappropriate when directed at a liberal woman and just fine when said of a conservative, which perfectly illustrates the absurdity of the Left's outrage concerning what Limbaugh said about Fluke.
If Wasserman Schultz were really offended by Limbaugh's comments she would have been equally outraged by Maher's regular misogyny - as well as that of his audience! - and therefore would never go on his show.
But because he's a liberal that typically speaks her language and advocates for politicians and causes she does, he gets a pass.
For more on this pathetic hypocrisy, please Sunday's Daily Beast article by liberal Fox News contributor Kirsten Powers Sunday.
As for Wasserman Schultz and all the other liberals both in and out of the media supposedly offended by what Limbaugh said last week, they need to avoid HBO's Real Time at all costs in the future or be similarly exposed as misogyny hypocrites.
Generally speaking, if somebody doesn’t want to be _called_ something, they shouldn’t engage in certain behavior! It’s not whether the person is “called” something, it’s whether they’re actually _doing_ that kind of thing!
My littlest brother, who had just had his 15th birthday, came to visit me at my apartment. I rarely have visitors. Well, one of my neighbors _called_ me something. I was upset that he called me that, but I knew that it wasn’t true; knowing that he had seen me with my brother walking from the mailbox to the apartment, and that it was my brother, and that I was / am not the kind of person that he was accusing me of being. I didn’t reply to him; I let him rant (he was just an angry kind of person), and went on about my business. Glad he no longer lives there.
Waz-a-man doesn't think it's funny? Hmmm, I'm not really sure. Lets see: Was-a-man, SLUT... Was-a-man, SLUT... ha, Waz-a-man, Slut... HarHARDeHARDYHAR!!!!
Seems pretty funny to me! Or, does it not count for Waz-a-man?
To build a true conservative majority in Congress, we need to target the leaders of the opposition and replace them with staunchly conservative representatives. And who better to go after than “the public face of the Democrat party” and Obama advisor, DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz? Debbie is the leading apologist for Obama’s failed economic programs and a proven liar who viciously attacks conservatives across the country. By removing her from office, we can silence a leading voice for big government, entitlement-dependency, and soaring debt. Defeating leaders on the Left and electing new leaders of our own is still the best way to build a Tea Party Congress.
Ready to step into Wasserman Schultz’s seat is a true Tea Party candidate named Karen Harrington. A successful businesswoman and community leader, Harrington is committed to restoring fiscal sanity in Washington, reforming the tax code, repealing Obamacare and freeing markets to create prosperity. A mother of three, Karen is the very model of the Tea Party candidate and is running for her first elected office.
That would be Stupid Sluts!
Is Debbie the one with the long ears or the curly hair?
Sometimes calling a slut a slut is just stating a fact. I’ll give her that.
Standard statement applies. If it weren’t for double standards, liberals would have no standards at all.
i can think of other nasty things liberals said about palin, especially kathy griffin and jennifer lopez and that was on a weekly basis too...but did that story get as much recognition as limbaugh’s? i think not...
Who said anyone was trying to be funny? Fluke's a slut.
hahaha. I knew there was a joke in that name somewhere. You found it. rofl
wasserman schultz is a Fascist pig.
Thank you for sharing.
When you are in Seattle don’t forget to...
She needs to get out more...
This seems to be the same logic whereby blacks are allowed (and encouraged) to call other blacks "Niggaz" and worse. The world is weird.
Shouldn’t the President of the United States call Sarah Palin and apologize for the vulgar remarks of Bill Maher?
Someone demanding we pay for $1,000 a month for contraceptives is a slut.
Oh, but it is OKay for the sluts of The View to gloat for being so retarded in rightfully calling each other sluts and retards, because that is so Zero to do, to be a constipated gun and child hating dying drug addicted hag.
She is lucky, though, the Democrates are not calling her slut for not asking to remove her generous boyfriend and get a plastic doll instead. In their view, Fluke is a slut for daring not being some kind of OBama nothing.
Instead of being nice calling her a slut he should have called her a whore!
Maher is proof that the by liberals concern for women is limited to being able to use them for money and power.
As is Sandra Bernahrd.
and David Letterman.
Hush, only Obama is not a slut. He is our slut messiah of nothingness. The rest of us, democrates included, are sluts. There, this is what Rush should have mentioned.
But he is so sorry now...
Same way NOW reacts to misbehavior toward women by pro-abortion politicians.
More profound words of wisdom from Debbie Syphilis-Test. I’m surprised that Satan shares his bride with the world!
Odd how the Democrat-media complex wasn't offended by a media personality calling a woman a ' twat'... Maybe because Sarah Palin is a Republican, the members of the Democrat-media complex feel they can call her anything they want and it's 'funny'.
Here's what we know for sure: The New York Times is too dense to 'get it' - and if they do 'get it' they won't cover it because they're biased little pricks.
It was $3,000 a year. Do you have any idea how many condoms AND birth control pills can be bought for $3,000 a year?
Wasserman Schultz is offended when a LIBERAL woman is degraded. When it's a conservative women - she's probably telling the joke or laughing... Think German SS (Schultz) and Jews. Anything could be said about the Jews - nothing derogatory could be said about the SS. It's the same.
Like Lucy holding the ball for Charlie Brown, we never learn and always take the bait. Yes, there is a double standard. The left can go ad hominem and we can’t.
But pretending reality doesn’t exist won’t change the reality.
We win when we campaign on issues... Contract with America, TeaParty were both about issues. We lose when we take the bait of Monica Lewinsky and similar.
Life is not fair. But it is reality.
No, it was $3K during law school ... how long is that? 3 years? Here’s her direct quote from the transcript:
” ... contraception can cost a woman over $3,000 during
Nevertheless .... even at $1,000/year, that’s still a lot of bc, no matter which form you use.
After three years of birth control pills are paid for she's left with $2,676 to cover the costs of condoms....
A box of LifeStyles Ultra Sensitive 40ct Condoms at Walmart runs $11.46.
For the $2,676 left AFTER buying birth control pills, she could buy 233 boxes of condoms (the 40ct boxes) - for a total of 9320 condoms over a three year stint at law school... or 3,106 condoms per year. Or in an easier way to think of it: about 8 1/2 condoms PER DAY.
Now the question is: what do we call a woman who uses - on average - 60 condoms a week?
Bill Maher of HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher referred to Sarah Palin as a 'twat' - to the laughter of his liberal (oh so sensitive) audience... We can't use that word - because it's NOT funny when a liberal is called a name. Only when a conservative women is called names is it funny.
I wonder what Maher and the other sensitive liberals would call Sarah Palin if she or her daughters were using 60 condoms a week - every week - week in - week out - for three years.
If Brietbart was here he would prove that Ms Flute is a lesbian, and ask why a lesbian needs $1000 worth of birth control.
she can afford Georgetown University but can't handle contraception?????She could refrain from sexual activity which she should be doing anyway as a single girl at a Catholic school......or she could advise her paramours that they would be responsible for the cost of birth control, or she could get an aspirin and hold it between her knees. I have seen her picture and read some of her background and I find it amazing that "she" needs contraception at all.
She should know from sluts. She is surrounded by them in the Communist Democratic Party.
Fluke is a self-described slut. IMO that’s what someone who advertises her availability to the world actually is.
Democrat women don’t have the option to be sluts, because no one will sleep with them.
She is a thirty year old activist who planted herself because she knew the insurance didn’t cover bc and she was waiting for the right time to spring the trap. My guess would be that someone is bankrolling her.
Or as Debbie's friend, ( Bill Maher ) would say - She's a cu*t. Yep, Debbie Wasserman Schultz is a c*nt - and a twat. We need to learn to talk like liberals because they're sooooooo cool. Well, according to the New York Times - an organization that's never found a liberal they wouldn't defend - or a conservative they wouldn't trash. Even if for the same 'crime'. (Liberal filth talking - funny. Conservative trash taking - horrible beyond words)
If we had a liberal audience like Maher, and we called Debbie a c*nt, they'd all be yucking it up - clapping - just for hearing the word. Or maybe not - Debbie is 'one of them'. And without the double standard they'd have no standards. Right?
Ever notice how thrilled liberals are when Jon Stewart uses a dirty word? Same with Maher. They're all a twitter - the energy level goes waaaaay up. They love it. Especially when those words are used to describe conservative women like Sarah Palin.
It's strange the press never seems to be offended when conservative women are called cun*s etc.... could it be because they're emotionally 'in' on the fun?
Great Post. Wasserman has more than egg on her face.
