Bill Maher, Rush Limbaugh, Sandra Fluke Freedom Of Speech.
Thy Black Man ^ | March 22, 2012 | Crystal Wright

When Rush Limbaugh exercised his 1st amendment right to free speech and criticized Sandra Fluke for whining about paying for her birth control pills, Democrats and the liberal mainstream media pounced. Granted Rush used some harsh words to describe Sandra Fluke, but that was his first amendment right. What’s despicable is the hypocrisy exhibited by Democrats and President Obama who don’t apply this same standard of decency to left wing comedian Bill Maher, who on a daily basis says things more offensive than Rush Limbaugh ever has.

Could it be because Bill Maher is a huge supporter of Democrats and just gave $1 million to Obama’s Super PAC Priorities USA? Bill Maher repeatedly utters vile, disgusting things which go well beyond the point of decency and all we hear is crickets from Democrats and the liberal news media. Bill Maher mocked Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, who prays before games with the following tweet on December 24, 2011 “Wow, Jesus just f**ked #TimTebow bad! And on Xmas Eve! Somewhere in hell Satan is tebowing, saying to Hitler “Hey, Buffalo’s killing them.”

There were no calls for Bill Maher to be suspended from HBO and President Obama didn’t feel compelled to phone Tebow to comfort him after Bill Maher assaulted his religion. Obama could have used that as a teachable moment to stand up for Christianity and freedom of religion.

Of course, there’s Bill Maher’s vile comments about Bristol Palin in 2011, when he said:

“In Bristol’s new memoir Not Afraid of Life – working title, “Whoops, There’s a D*&+ in Me” – Bristol claims that the night she lost her virginity she had accidentally gotten drunk on wine coolers that she didn’t know contained alcohol and then blacked out and didn’t remember a thing. Oh, the Palins. I tell you, the sh*t doesn’t fall far from the bat.”

Bill Maher has also mocked Sarah Palin relentlessly and repeatedly called her a “dumb tw@t” and a “c*nt.” During his March 2nd broadcast, Rush Limbaugh said if Obama really practiced what he preached, that is being the decency police, he would demand his Super PAC return the $1million Bill Maher donated. Later that evening on his show, Maher responded and said he can say whatever he wants because unlike Rush Limbaugh’s radio show, “I don’t have sponsors. I’m on HBO.” But as News Busters pointed out, millions of HBO subscriptions like me pay Bill Maher’s salary so it is the same standard of decency should be applied to his toilet mouth.

Rush Limbaugh commented: “Bill Maher and some of his comments make me look like Romper Room, a choir boy. So will Obama be giving back Bill Maher’s money?”

Unless I missed it, Obama didn’t express outrage over Bill Maher’s insults against Bristol or Sarah Palin. Furthermore, he’s refused to respond to a letter from Concerned Women of America demanding Obama tell his Super PAC to return Maher’s “filthy” money. White House Spokesperson Jay Carney explained to USA Today, “As for Bill Maher’s PAC contribution, White House spokesman Jay Carney said Obama has nothing to do with Priorities USA, and can’t legally tell it what to do.” But White House staffer and campaign officials will headline Priorities USA fundraising events, yet Obama has no influence over the PAC? The take away: it’s okay to vilify and degrade Republicans but don’t you dare do it to Democrats.

In President Obama’s March 6th press conference , where he tried to upstage GOP Super Tuesday contests, Obama said the reason he called Sandra Fluke “is because I thought about Malia and Sasha, and one of the things I want them to do as they get older is to engage in issues they care about . . . I want them to be able to speak their mind in a civil and thoughtful way. And I don’t want them attacked or called horrible names because they’re being good citizens.”

Obama added: “We want to send a message to all our young people that being part of a democracy involves argument and disagreements and debate, and we want you to be engaged, and there’s a way to do it that doesn’t involve you being demeaned and insulted, particularly when you’re a private citizen.”

It seems Obama wants to teach his daughters the political double standard of decency—that it’s okay for conservative women and Christians “to be demeaned and insulted” but not their liberal peers. Bill Maher is an odious pig with whom Obama doesn’t seem to have a problem being associated. Now, that’s a teachable moment for the history books.

Slut is a term applied to an individual who is considered to have loose sexual morals or who is sexually promiscuous.

I still don't know where the outrage is over this word. This law school student TOLD us that she had loose sexual morals and is sexually promiscuous.

Where's the beef? She met the definition perfectly . . . I don't get it . . . nothing profane . . . just a one-word definition that matched her behavior that she, herself, admitted to.

It must be very gratifying for Miss Fluke to receive so much attention from the media. Undoubtedly she is basking in the newly found glow of popularity, and I am certain that she has no lack of opportunity to exercise her reproductive rights with all sorts of new and interesting men. Good for her.

Now, for the sake of all that is holy, can we please stop talking about her? People like Miss Fluke thrive on attention,(one might even use the term “attention whore” but of course we wouldn’t want to use terms that offend her delicate sensibilities) and the conservative media is playing right into her disturbed mentality.

The sooner we all just stop talking about her, the sooner her fifteen minutes of fame will be up.

Bill Mahrer and his owner Time-Life-Warner-Turner-CNN-HBO were granted a pass because “everybody KNOWS Sarah Palin is a c*n*”.

The socialist children are in charge now and they will behave as Stalinists do.

The mythmakers on the Left are using this coordinated story between the DNC and the MSM to spread the hysterical lie that Republicans are “stamping out birth control and denying people access”.

That’s a world’s difference from refuse to PAY for “YOUR” coverage 100% so you can go on vacation in Italy and Spain with your rich deadbeat boyfriend who won’t even pay $9 a month for your sexual encounters.

Sandra Fluke is no better a person than the lottery winner with half a million in the bank who said she still deseved her foodstamps because she was unemployed.

“Little bill maher” has some very strong canine ancestry on the maternal side and is living proof that there is no “clean end” on a turd.

Check in with the Oxford English Dictionary and have a look at their etymology online ..... it's a Saxon word, very rich in its original meaning.

.... and he will display every bit of it, when his disturbing dreams come true and he finally is confronted by Track Palin.
