Skip to comments.Dem Rep: Maher can stay on the air, but Rush can't
Posted on 03/14/2012 10:30:19 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Rep. Shelley Berkely, D-Nev., has led a push to get Rush Limbaugh pulled off the air, but she doesnn't believe that Bill Maher needs to face the same pressure because Maher is less important to Democrats.
"Theres a big difference between what is being said by Bill Maher and his humor, although I dont find that funny, and what Rush Limbaugh does, who pretty much calls the shots in the Republican Party," Berkely, who is running for Senate, said in the Las Vegas Sun. Maher has donated $1 million to President Obama's superPAC.
She maintained that her petition drive calling for Clear Channel to pull Limbaugh's show "has nothing to do with the First Amendment" and everything to do with defending women from demeaning remarks. "I am merely asking Clear Channel to make a business decision to get somebody who uses and abuses the public airwaves off the airwaves," Berkley said. "We need to stand up for ourselves as women around this country."

Not your call, b!tch, so STFU.
A United States Congresswoman calling for cancelling the first amendment.
The MSM ignores.
To all Dem trolls —> Stick it where the sun don’t shine!
That's because the 1st Amendment only applies to LIBERAL free speech, NOT CONSERVATIVE free speech!!
(Silly rabbit . . . . . . . . . . . . . . free speech is for kids!)
How, HOW, do these idiots get elected, and keep the office???
The problem with socialism is that pretty soon you run out of other people
Liars. Rush was making a clear joke. Maher was clearly calling names. There was no real humor in a man just calling a woman a c word. Nothing. It caused laughter by sycophants who hate the woman in question.
Rush made a full on funny: hey, you want to be paid by us (taxpayers) to have sex! Doesn’t that make you a slut, a prostitute, by definition?? A joke!
And remember that the argument is not and never was “denying women birth control.”. The argument was religious freedom, and the unconstitutionality of forcing a religion to go against their tenets.
Anyone who falls for the Obama subterfuge, the switching of the subject matter like a quick game of cups is STUPID. Or evil.
“A United States Congresswoman calling for cancelling the first amendment.”
Yep, liberals are fascists. And I love her reasoning about wanting to take Rush off the air because he’s the de facto head of the Republican party! Of course, Rush isn’t the head of the Republican party, but this clown of a congresswoman thinks the more politically influential the opposition is it’s a better case for taking away his First Amendment rights. This sorry excuse of a politician would probably act like the Stalinists who sent opposition leaders to work camps if she thought she could get away with it.
they let the Maher out of the box and the sting of double-standard is careening back at them like a boomerang...
all those dem robots are now spouting “does not compute... does not compute...”
where’s Roddy Piper with those sunglasses?
My favorite excuse is the one I heard (I think it came from Chucky Schumer) that Maher is on late at night so it’s okay....
Yes folks, it’s okay to be a misogynist as long as it’s after the local news...
Rep. Shelly, I’ll write this slowly so that you can read it...
SHOVE IT UP YOUR SMELLY OBAMA.
Why do dumbass liberal dems think Rush calls the shots in the repub party?
These lefties are insane ignoramuses!
So Maher's remarks were not demeaning to women?
“Yes folks, its okay to be a misogynist as long as its after the local news...”
