The Fluke Gambit Pays Off For Dems (Sandra is now the media-designated victim of Republicans)
American Thinker ^ | 03/05/2012 | James Lewis

Posted on 03/05/2012 5:58:15 AM PST by SeekAndFind

Sandra Fluke  is now the official, media-designated victim of woman-hating Republicans, with an assist from Rush Limbaugh.

Where have we seen this soap opera before? That's an important question, because this is the Big Play of the scapegoating left.  It's pure, standard Alinsky, and they do it over and over again.

That's why it is important for normal, decent Americans to learn how it works. Once you recognize it you'll see it done over and over again. Conservatives who can't predict the radical left are losers. As in football, we have to study the playbook of the opposition. It's the first step toward beating them. They are more ruthless and coordinated than conservatives are. We are smarter but less coordinated.

Ms. Fluke is long-time feminist activist who graduated in 2003 from Cornell's "Feminist, Gender, & Sexuality Studies." In the decade since then Ms. Fluke has become a political professional for a huge range of feminist causes. She has worked for the (Democrat) Manhattan Borough Taskforce on Domestic violence and

"numerous other New York City and New York State coalitions... As the 2010 recipient of the Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles Fran Kandel Public Interest Grant, she researched, wrote, and produced an instructional film on how to apply for a domestic violence restraining order in pro per. ... Through Georgetown's clinic programs, Sandra has proposed legislation ... represented victims of domestic violence ... Sandra is the Development Editor of the Journal of Gender and the Law, and served as the President of Law Students for Reproductive Justice, and the Vice President of the Women's Legal Alliance."

All of which is fine with me. What's not fine is lending oneself to a planted political stunt in collusion with the vicious radical left. But that is exactly what Ms. Fluke has done.

Rush goofed big time.

He tried to play according to Alinsky’s rules.

BIG MISTAKE.

See my post “Don’t dogpile Sandra Fluke.”

Sorry to say it but it looks like Rush was played like a fine violin, right into their hands.

I guess you could say Rush was "fluked" !!

I used to say, in the mid-19980’s, that I feel like a Jew in Mid-1930’s Germany. If this headline is true, I feel even more that way today. If the general public in this nation sees her the way the title suggests, this nation is truly lost.

The key to it all is coordinated media scapegoating.
This is a Democrat specialty.
Watch, you'll see it again in a couple of weeks.
The only way to stop it is to expose it.
Next time they do it we can pinpoint it.
Pick the target, freeze it, and polarize it.
It's about time to learn the playbook of the radical left.

BE BREITBART!

I agree that he never should have apologized once he decided to take that route.

That being said, I think that sometimes Rush likes to steering conversations over to the ‘satirical sex’ angle, and that is going to be a definite NO-WINNER, especially in prime-time talk radio, unless you are trying to compete for the Howard Stern audience.

I would not be at all surprised to find out that Ms. Fluke is a Lesbian, does NOT engage regularly in sex with men, and is a pure ploy.

OTOH, if she is a tramp/slut/trash as portrayed by her Testimony, then The Messiah will get all the teen-age (18-19) and young loose women votes (19-25), which is the goal.

It's not about "women's health care", it's about who is responsible for the cost of the LIFESTYLE they choose, just as Blacks, sex deviates, criminals, etc., where Society is FORCED to subsidize their CHOICES, while they take NO RESPONSIBILITY for their ACTIONS.

Why are 75% plus of black babies born out of wedlock? BECAUSE WE REWARD IT WITH EBT'S, WELFARE CHECKS, FOOD STAMPS, EITC, ETC., ETC.

Now we are subsidizing sex acts by paying for condoms, birth control pills, and baby-killing (Abortion).

Yep.

It's so easy to take the bait, isn't it? That way one doesn't have to talk about all the stuff that Sheriff Arpaio has recently made public, for example.

But we all know now who a single, individual slut going to Georgetown law school is now and we're all so much better off for it. /s

Meanwhile Rush will have a record audience today and a new gaggle of advertisers chomping at the bit to reach 20 million or more listeners.

Throw some more red meat out there, Rush.

Keep your eye on the ball. This is soooooooooo manufactured there has to be something really damaging to the DNC and/or Obama happening simultaneously. It may be Breitbart’s tapes, since he announced their existence at CPAC or it may be Sheriff Joe's continuing investigation since he had previously announced the March 1st conference.

By her own words she fits the dictionary definition:

“A person, especially a woman, considered sexually promiscuous.”

She has also directly applied the criteria to female law students at Georgetown.

She has essentially trumpeted the idea that Georgetown Girls are Easy.

Nothing untrue was said, she is a slut by her own words.

In what way was he “fluked”? He told the absolute truth and his cowardly sponsors ran for the tall grass. We’ve seen this before and we’ll see it again. Rush will get more than enough sponsors to take up the slack. Meanwhile, we should be emailing his cowardly sponsors that a pushback boycott will begin.

Rush was right. The woman went up to Capitol Hill for God’s sake and dared to whine about her sex life. When he called her a slut, I burst out laughing. Go, Rush! Don’t let anyone shut you up.

Read her testimony. Her testimony... (linked to FReeper post) I don't see where she ever says she's having sex.

She played the game and parsed her words. Rush reacted too fast without actually reading her words.

If you really wanted to play by Alinsky's rules you'd go Larry Flynt on her and start waiving money around the Georgetown campus for the stories of guys who had slept with her.

In what way was he "fluked"? He was played and fell for it.

Everyone knows what Rush said is true. Everyone! That's not the point. The point is that the Dems took another "victim" and used it to their advantage. I have to wonder if the whole thing was planned just hoping Rush would take it on. Which he did.

It does NOT pay off for Dems. The public is not fooled. Only the lefties and the media think they won anything. People, stop falling for this nonsense. The public sees through this and sees what a phony Sandra Lesbiano Fluke is. No one believed Anita Hill. Only the media and the lefty cohorts. No one believes Fluke except the same fools.

I don’t think so. Whenever someone left or moderate has brought this up to me, I just ask them, “If you want money for sex, what are you?”

I then use the opportunity to question the constitutionality of having the president dictate to private companies and churches what serves they provide and at what cost.

In the case of Carbonite online backup, do they want the government to demand they offer free backup or dictate the price or maybe the government will just provide free (tax payer paid) computer backups. Drop Carbonite and use Crashplan.com

Quote: “Without insurance coverage, contraception can cost a woman over $3,000 during law school. For a lot of students who, like me, are on public interest scholarships, that’s practically an entire summer’s salary.” From her testimony.

Where does it say “we”? Where does she ever say she’s having sex.

Rush stepped in it.

That was my take on it too. The Alinsky tactic the left used on Rush was to get him (mean bully) to “attack” (using crude and hurtful words) the “victim” (female just wanting better health coverage for other young females). This is the classic “public sympathizing with underdog” tactic to win the people to your side of a political argument.

Often, this tactic will cross over into violence, where “peaceful” demonstraters deliberately provoke the other side into violence against them, winning voter sympathy.

Only way to fight it is to expose it, but the media, of course, supresses the reality, and instead reinforces the perception the leftists created.
