Obama phones woman called 'slut' by Limbaugh
Politico ^ | 3/2/12 | JENNIFER EPSTEIN

Posted on 03/02/2012 11:39:13 AM PST by ColdOne

The young woman who was called a "slut" by Rush Limbaugh got a call Friday from President Obama who voiced support for her pro-birth control advocacy.

"He encouraged me and supported me and thanked me for speaking out about the concerns of American women," Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke said on MSNBC's "Andrea Mitchell Reports." She got the call from Obama while in a green room waiting to appear on the show.

"What was really personal for me was that he said to tell my parents that they should be proud and that meant a lot because Rush Limbaugh questioned whether or not my family would be proud of me," Fluke said. "So I just appreciated that very much."

Soon after she appeared on TV, Fluke also thanked Obama on her Twitter account. "Thank you @BARACKOBAMA for your call and words of support. It means so much to me and millions of women! #WeWillNotBeSilenced," she wrote.

Rush has done nothing wrong.

Would you call a Ford a Chevy? no.

She is what she is and from her own lips, she has many husbands, all of them know shes a slut or they wouldn't bother to call on her, all that's missing is a red light at her front door.

What other word fits her lifestyle better? She is not a Lady, and she is proud of that fact. Otherwise she would have kept her stupid mouth shut about how she lives. She's fair game now.

Now she can do whatever she likes in her personnal life, just shut up and pay for your own recreation.

Slut sounds better than PIG anyway.

After Michelle found out about the call she told the Zero “You called that slut? I’m going to cut your nuts off!”.

Or:

"You LIED to me Barack! You told me you were going to watch Sportscenter!"

Maybe this will calm the storm and save some lives as did Obama’s apology to the Muslim world regarding the burning of Korans that were used to communicate messages between prisoners. Yes, maybe this will save some lives. We need more promiscuity. Mom and Dad should be proud. Would BO’s mom be proud? You betcha. If only she had had free birth control pills, we would not have been burdened with this communist in the White House. As for his dad being proud, I don’t think he would be. Muslim men want to have many Muslim offspring.

I like how Rush read some Congresswoman saying that he was calling Sandra Fluke's honor into question and he responded by saying there was no question about her honor since she herself had been pretty definitive about that.

There is one thing Rush and I have in common: We try to be very careful with our use of words and will often use offensive words that, nonetheless, are dictionary descriptions of what we mean. He says, over and over, that words have meaning.

So he simply pulled the words right out of the dictionary. I mean LITERALLY. The words she used to define herself fit the definition of “slut” and part of that definition is “prostitute”. Now, if all her sex was with the same man, that might be a bit different.

Conservatives I know call a spade a spade and don't sugar coat the truth with clever little euphemisms.

Common! Get with the program!

This is the new Amerika, where women like her are worshiped and admired. That's why gradeschoolers are dressing up like whores these days, and having sex before they reach the 6th grade.

Dude, America is so far gone, there is not hope that it will every come back. It will have to burn and be reborn from the ashes.

Yup, women with no judeo-christian morals who flaunt their sexuality are revered and women who want to be mothers and put their kids first are spat upon and treated like shit. This is the culture war that has existed for quite some time, and you’re right, it’ll take a burning down and starting over to fix.

Did he read her his poem “Pop”, as one freak to another?

*******************

Pop

Sitting in his seat, a seat broad and broken
In, sprinkled with ashes,
Pop switches channels, takes another
Shot of Seagrams, neat, and asks
What to do with me, a green young man
Who fails to consider the
Flim and flam of the world, since
Things have been easy for me;
I stare hard at his face, a stare
That deflects off his brow;
I’m sure he’s unaware of his
Dark, watery eyes, that
Glance in different directions,
And his slow, unwelcome twitches,
Fail to pass.
I listen, nod,
Listen, open, till I cling to his pale,
Beige T-shirt, yelling,
Yelling in his ears, that hang
With heavy lobes, but he’s still telling
His joke, so I ask why
He’s so unhappy, to which he replies . . .
But I don’t care anymore, cause
He took too damn long, and from
Under my seat, I pull out the
Mirror I’ve been saving; I’m laughing,
Laughing loud, the blood rushing from his face
To mine, as he grows small,
A spot in my brain, something
That may be squeezed out, like a
Watermelon seed between
Two fingers.
Pop takes another shot, neat,
Points out the same amber
Stain on his shorts that I’ve got on mine and
Makes me smell his smell, coming
From me; he switches channels, recites an old poem
He wrote before his mother died,
Stands, shouts, and asks
For a hug, as I shink, my
Arms barely reaching around
His thick, oily neck, and his broad back; ‘cause
I see my face, framed within
Pop’s black-framed glasses
And know he’s laughing too.

— Barack Obama

Great way for the POTUS to spend his leisure in these non chaotic, non pressing times. Good thing there are not more pressing matters. If people do not see through this gimmicky nonsense I will be sorely saddened and let down by my country brethren.

She is a slut, but that doesn’t mean her family isn’t proud of her. The moral fabric of our country is worn pretty thin, so I sincerly doubt she is held at any semblance of standards.

Good find, Para-Ord.45, of the Jammie Wearing Fools post.

Short Chicago Tribune article (with Flukes video) supplies the salient details of the Limbaugh/Flukes firestorm, including:

"Fluke had attempted to testify last month at a congressional committee hearing on the Obama administration’s new rule requiring employers to offer health plans that include birth control coverage, but she was excluded from the panel. She testified instead at a mock hearing organized by Democratic lawmakers...."

THREAD: Sandra Fluke’s Appearance Is No Fluke ( Rush & the Slut Fluke, Mega Leftist)

Sandra Fluke’s Appearance Is No Fluke

Posted by on Mar 02, 2012 at 10:49 am

For me the interesting part of the story is the ever-evolving “coed”. I put that in quotes because in the beginning she was described as a Georgetown law student. It was then revealed that prior to attending Georgetown she was an active women’s right advocate. In one of her first interviews she is quoted as talking about how she reviewed Georgetown’s insurance policy prior to committing to attend, and seeing that it didn’t cover contraceptive services, she decided to attend with the express purpose of battling this policy.

During this time, she was described as a 23-year-old coed. Magically, at the same time Congress is debating the forced coverage of contraception, she appears and is even brought to Capitol Hill to testify. This morning, in an interview with Matt Lauer on the Today show, it was revealed that she is 30 years old, NOT the 23 that had been reported all along.

In other words, folks, you are being played. She has been an activist all along and the Dems were just waiting for the appropriate time to play her.

While she is described as a “third year law student” they always fail to mention that she is also the past president of Law Students for Reproductive Justice.

July 30 2011

Does your campus’s LSRJ chapter face opposition in regard to facilitating a comprehensive conversation about reproductive justice? Well mine definitely does! While my campus has a mix of people with different backgrounds, and a rich liberal arts community, the Midwest doesn’t exactly scream bleeding liberal. Some LSRJ chapters at conservative campuses face opposition in the form of other, more conservative, student run organizations; some face it from their administrations, and others from their peers, or the community in general. Whatever the opposition is, it can be incredibly frustrating and disheartening.

The question is, how do we combat this conservative opposition and oppression, in order to facilitate a discussion and educate others about the RJ movement? I am obviously not alone in facing these problems, as Sandra Fluke of Georgetown lead a packed room in a discussion on this question at the first Issue Caucus that I attended at the Leadership Institute, LSRJ’s national conference at Berkeley.

While no solution was definitively reached, and I personally don’t begin to have the “right” answer, I was really charged by the discussion and feel many great ideas were presented. Some campus chapters decided to take an adversarial approach, feeling it important to use those “scary” words the opposition fears.

Further background research on Ms Fluke reveals that she got her start in government in New York in 2009.

Sandra Fluke’s professional background in domestic violence and human trafficking began with Sanctuary for Families in New York City. There, she launched the agency’s pilot Program Evaluation Initiative. While at Sanctuary, she co-founded the New York Statewide Coalition for Fair Access to Family Court, which after a twenty-year stalemate, successfully advocated for legislation granting access to civil orders of protection for unmarried victims of domestic violence, including LGBTQ victims and teens. Sandra was also a member of the Manhattan Borough President’s Taskforce on Domestic Violence and numerous other New York City and New York State coalitions that successfully advocated for policy improvements impacting victims of domestic violence.

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. She has also interned with the Coalition to Abolish Slavery & Trafficking; Polaris Project; Neighborhood Legal Services of Los Angeles County; Break the Cycle; the Domestic Violence Legal Empowerment and Appeals Project; NOW Legal Defense and Education Fund; Crime Victim and Sexual Assault Services; and the Human Services Coalition of Tompkins County.

Through Georgetown’s clinic programs, Sandra has proposed legislation based on fact-finding in Kenya regarding child trafficking for domestic work, and has represented victims of domestic violence in protection order cases. 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. In her first year, she also co-founded a campus committee addressing human trafficking. Cornell University awarded her a B. S. in Policy Analysis & Management, as well as Feminist, Gender, & Sexuality Studies in 2003.

My only question is, how does someone go from being a champion of domestic violence issues to an expert of women’s reproductive health issues?

Someone posted this on Yahoo...I think is very funny.........Fluke said "Contraception can cost a woman over $3,000 during law school," she said. "For a lot of students like me who are on public interest scholarships, that's practically an entire summer's salary." So her complaint is she wants somebody else to pay for her pills so she can have all the sex she wants! Oh really. I had to spend nearly $20,000 during college so I could have sex. I had to buy beer, wine, dinners, jewelry, flowers, etc and pay for gas and cover charges to get into clubs/bars just to find drunk, willing women to have sex with. Oh, and by the way, I had to pay for my own condoms for the girls like Fluke who didn't want to pay for their own contraceptives! So if Fluke doesn't want to pay for her little pills then she should just quit having sex or trust the guys to bring the rubbers!
