Wasserman Schultz Says Calling Women Sluts Isn't Funny - Two Months After Doing Maher's Show

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.

Stay tuned.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Same way NOW reacts to misbehavior toward women by pro-abortion politicians.

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.

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
law school.”

Nevertheless .... even at $1,000/year, that’s still a lot of bc, no matter which form you use.

Birth control pills at Walmart sell for $9 a month - for three years of law school that's $324.

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.

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.

A year ago on his HBO show, Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a “dumb twat.”

He followed up days later in a Dallas stand-up routine by calling Palin the C-word.

Last July on HBO, he said Palin was “a bully who sells patriotism like a pimp, and the leader of a strange family of inbred weirdos.”

Last September on his show, Maher said Palin would have sex with Rick Perry if he was black.

Maher bragged on his show Friday critics can’t touch him because “I don’t have sponsors.” But that doesn’t mean he should be coddled, either, and yet he’s regularly honored across the media as a special guest, be it news networks or entertainment shows.

Days after he called Palin the T-word, he appeared with then-CNN host Eliot Spitzer, where Spitzer concluded, “Your show is brilliant. I love watching it.”

On Sunday, Democratic Party chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz huffed on “Meet the Press” that "I don't know any woman in America that thinks that being called a slut is funny." But two months ago, she accepted an invitation to sit on the set with the man who called Palin a “c---.”

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?
