Pelosi: Limbaugh's 'vicious attacks' on student uncivilized

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. "She’s having so much sex she can’t 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 women’s health and women’s voices,” their statement concludes.

“”She’s having so much sex she can’t 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.

"$3,000 a year for contraceptives"

S.C. Senator Earnest “Fritz” Hollings’ statement from a few years ago, “ “There’s too much consuming going on out there.”

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.

Exactly. Bill Maher gives $1 million to Obama. Yet gets to call Palin "whore" etc. No one says Obama needs to denounce Maher.

Advice to Miss Fluke: If you do not wish to be called a slut don't go on national television and swear under oath that you are f***ing everything in a hundred yard radius that is equipped with a p**is. If you testified to that truthfully please seek counseling or at least start charging for the service. Sooner or later some respectable whore is going to cut you up for creating unfair competition.

If a male of similar age and situation went before a congressional committee and claimed to be copulating with an average of 2.7 females per day he, first of all, would immediately be assumed a liar. But if he was thought credible, a'la Charlie Sheen, these same b****es who are jumping to this self proclaimed sperm receptacle's defense would call him an irresponsible sex addict and demand his incarceration and neutering.

Of course, if he claimed to be buggering that daily average of kids and adult males, then to them he's just exercising his civil sexual freedom and ought to be hired by the BSA as a scout master.

Exactly. But that’s how the Dems and the media work. They laugh then ignore Maher. But when Limbaugh says something they feign outrage and push story hard. It will be on the nightly newscasts, and a major story on Yahoo, AOL, and all the email portals.

&&&
Pretty sure that is a lie. I did not hear the Limbaugh show, but I read about it. I got the impression that Limbaugh’s criticism was based on the fact that this bimbo cited a very active sex life as a reason that Georgetown should be footing the bill for her birth control and abortifacients.

Lol! Maybe Pelosi and this group will make the mistake of issuing a letter condemning Rush. Does anybody remember what happened the last time democrats did that? Rush turned the situation into a huge circus where he auctioned the letter off on eBay and make the democrats look like inept buffoons. You would think they would eventually learn not to even try to beat him.

How much “free” access to contraception will women be allowed? It will be decided by the Obamacare sex panels unless of course it will be unlimited or we abolish this nonsense.

“If she thinks Rush was bad, she should listen to Glenn Beck’s comments.”

El Rushbo is a superb solo act when he gets started, like on this topic. But Glenn in combo with his sidekicks Stu & Pat is rollicking unstoppable comedy. It’s literally hard to drive & listen at the same time with people in other cars pointing and staring.

So this young woman wants subsidized safe sex during three years of law school? And is willing to express her demands before a congressional committee?

Who’s going to want to date her now? Just askin’.

Yeah, cuz the Left's characterizations of Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann, let alone figures like Ann Coulter or Michelle Malkin, are always so delicate and refined.

"Slut" and "prostitute" are accurate terms for a woman who is paid for sex. There are much coarser terms for it. Limbaugh was being kind.

Liberal women are good at telling us how independent they are, but the reality is, liberal women put themselves dependent on the government, as well as men when it comes to money. They are always asking for handouts. How independent is that?

Compare them to Sarah Palin. Palin has natural beauty. Pelosi, Kardishian have had many plastic surgeries and are still ugly. And Pelosi and Clinton are democrats so they are evil socialists. Hope Palin's beauty holds up so she can run and win soon as we need her drilling for oil and cutting of government.

This is Pelosi’s whorish self loathing by child making proxy action.

She is for the Occupy the CAtholic Church movement, and this is all this is about:

To attack conservatives and construe them as anticondom and thus seize the CAtholics’ best and most politicaly advantageous assets: their doctors and health care.

They have been screaming bloody murder for years that the government needs to stay out of the bedroom.

Yeah, about 40 years... ever since Roe v. Wade.

Since then the government has inculcated itself into nearly every other room:

The hospital room - with Obama Care

The boardroom - G/M., Chrysler

The classroom

The dining room with innumerable food regulations.

And even the bathroom - shower head and toilet regulations.

I see, somehow believe a person is immune when having loose sex is health? Being deepthroated is supporting their voices?

But then we have laws against disturbing the habitat of spotted Owls and killing other birds so they do not infect them...

Welcome to Pelobama care! Where giving sugar to diabetics and sodomy are considered healthy and good medicine.

THis world is completely stuck on stupid and perversion. Soddom and Gomora does not have much on us. Touching angels is indeed forbidden.
