Pelosi: Limbaugh's 'vicious attacks' on student uncivilized By Mike Lillis - 02/29/12 08:23 PM ET
House Democrats went after Rush Limbaugh Wednesday for his attacks on a university student who recently testified before Congress on women's reproductive health.
Limbaugh on Wednesday called Georgetown Law Center student Sandra Fluke a "slut" and a "prostitute" for her support of the Obama administration's new birth-control mandate.
Behind House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), the Democrats said Limbaugh's remarks were uncivilized and misogynistic. They're asking Republican leaders to denounce the popular conservative radio host.
Limbaugh's attacks, the Democrats said, "are outside the circle of civilized discussion and unmask the strong disrespect for women held by some in this country."
"We call upon the Republican leaders in the House to condemn these vicious attacks on Ms. Fluke, which are in response to her testimony to the Congress," they added.
Aside from Pelosi, Democratic Reps. Louise Slaughter (N.Y.), Rosa DeLauro (Conn.), Carolyn Maloney (N.Y.), Elijah Cummings (Md.) and Diana DeGette (Col.) as well as Del. Eleanor Holmes-Norton (D.C.) endorsed the message.
Fluke has become something of an unwitting celebrity on Capitol Hill this month after Republicans on the Oversight and Government Reform Committee denied the Democrats' request to have her testify on Obama's new birth control mandate. Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) argued that the policy concerns religious freedom, not reproductive health.
Democrats pounced, hoping to portray the Republicans as out-of-touch with women's healthcare needs. To highlight the saga, Democratic leaders had Fluke discuss the issue last week before the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee.
That testimony led Limbaugh to claim Wednesday that Fluke "wants to be paid to have sex."
"What does it say about the college co-ed Susan [sic] Fluke who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex? What does that make her?" Limbaugh asked. "It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute.
"She wants to be paid to have sex," he added. "Shes having so much sex she cant afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex."
Pelosi and the Democrats are hoping such statements from conservatives will help them with Independent voters particularly women in November.
"Democrats will always stand up for womens health and womens voices, their statement concludes.
The Dems know that Obummer will do very poorly with men this November. So, they must lock up the female vote and that means painting the Republicans, regardless of the candidate, as not only anti-abortion but anti-contraception. There will be a steady diet of these types of stories.
You should put a bag over your post. I am about to throw up.
Except this isn't about "women's health", this is about the Democrat's obsession with sex and the continued moral degradation of society. Good on Rush and even better that crazy Pelosi went after Rush because now he can eviscerate her after provocation.
On another note, if I were that girl's mother (thankfully, I'm not) I'd slap her back to infancy for the shame she brought upon our family. Of course, she's probably the product of a couple of clueless libs who are beaming with pride at the "independent and free-thinking" daughter they raised.
I listened, I thought, to all of Rush yesterday. I don’t believe I heard him describing this particular slot machine as a whore or a prostitute. Did I miss something?
“Demonstrating absurdity by being absurd” Rushes preferred method of Satire... totally lost on the left’s way of thinking.
Ha! Now we have heard the trash talk from one of the slut’s head pimps.
As I have noted elsewhere, if I’m paying for your sex life slut, then I expect services for the money I pay.
Dont’ like being called a prostitute slut? Then don’t demand that others pay for you to have sex.
The left uses victimhood very effectively.
They look for things to be offended about in order to silence truth speakers.
The is what “Political Correctness” (originally called Cultural Marxism) is all about.
Botox Barbie needs to get herself laid - it would do her some good.
No. What pe-louse-i and other asshat, moonbat lib losers are trying to do to America is uncivilized.
“”Shes having so much sex she cant afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex.”
I’m sick and tired of being told to stay out of the left’s bedrooms when they dare me to step in by using MY money to have fun and games.
As usual Rush is right!! Someday, hopefully soon, a GOP president will honor him with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
The left does this on every issue.
They first ask for mere tolerance of their “differences”,
they end up putting a gun in your face forcing you to participate.
Keep it up Rush and hit them back harder. You wouldn’t be catching flack if you were not over the target.
S.C. Senator Earnest Fritz Hollings statement from a few years ago, Theres too much consuming going on out there.
$9k per month? She must hang out with...
This is how it goes.. The late night comedians, Hollywood dbags, Bill Maher, et al can call Palin, Bachmann etc whores, skanks, and whatever they damn well please. With no pushback.
But a Republican satirist makes a valid point with a little humor and all hell breaks loose.
It’s funny how they always call Limbaugh an entertainer except when it suits their needs. Now he’s part of the Republican establishment.
Liberals are a cyst on society.
Maybe Nutsy Pelosi should organize a Slutwalk in protest of this.
