Skip to comments.Rush Limbaugh's 'slut' comment draws wrath of Staten Island's three female lawmakers
Posted on 03/02/2012 7:39:09 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Staten Island's female elected officials from both sides of the aisle are demanding that conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh "apologize to all women" for calling a Georgetown University Law student a "slut" on his program.
Limbaugh caused a national firestorm when he used the word after Sandra Fluke testified before Congress about the need for contraceptive coverage.
"What does it say about the college coed ... who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex?" Limbaugh said on Wednesday. "It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex."
He went on to suggest that Ms. Fluke distribute sex tapes of herself.
"If we are going to pay for your contraceptives, and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something for it," he said. "We want you post the videos online so we can all watch."
The remarks brought swift, bi-partisan condemnation in Washington, with President Barack Obama, who called Ms. Fluke personally, and GOP House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), slamming Limbaugh.
The Island's elected women -- state Sen. Diane Savino (D-North Shore/Brooklyn), Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis (R-East Shore/Brooklyn) and City Councilwoman Debi Rose (D-North Shore) -- called Limbaugh's remarks "disgusting" and said they were made all the worse because March is Women's History Month.
"It does not matter if your hero is Eleanor Roosevelt or Margaret Thatcher," said Ms. Savino, "this is about treating women with dignity and respect. If Mr. Limbaugh cannot find it in his conscience to apologize, his fans and advertisers should demand that he does."

Okay, Rush has defined that Fluke is one of the “chicks for free,” (as the song goes), but what does that make The Obamanator who is setting her up in business? Darn! What is that word?
Opps...just looked up and saw a horse on TV and it looked like MISTER ED. Then, a commercial came on and showed a trashy-looking girl in a jeans ad. I kinda got confused for a minute. Sorry !
Agreed, we should stop buying from a lot of companies. Like any Company in Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway, GE, GM, Chrysler, Ford, Goldman Sachs, tell the wife and kids no movies the rest of the year. It’s time for us to unite as millions of people who are fed up with these one way street clowns.
Does all this mean that Obama gets the “slut” vote this election?
Pros·ti·tute noun: A person, typically a woman, who engages in sex for payment.
Is she engaging in sex? Yes. Is payment being rendered for this action? Yes, the taxpayers are paying.
What does this equal?
She is by definition a Pros·ti·tute noun: A person, typically a woman, who engages in sex for payment.
You know you are over the target when you are catching flak.
Yes, in today’s “me, me, me” society, the number one concern is, and should be, the sexual habits of a graduate level student *rolleyes*
I have an idea, why can’t we add the cost of healthcare and contraception to the tuition bill?
You know you are over the target when you are catching flak.
Anyone who wants their neighbor to pay them to have sex is a slut.
Yep. That's how I gauge what's good for America or not. If the liberals are foaming at the mouth with hate and vitriol, something must be good for America. If the liberals are happy and glowing with the spirit of their version of bi-partisanship, I know we just got screwed.
What? Poor thing has to pay for her own makeup? How’s she gonna get laid?
Also, do you realize where this is going? Included in her future billable activities will be her sexual intercourse (not with client) in order to pass the cost of her fancy gold plated IUD onto her clients.
Actually, the woman is the quintessential definition of a “slut.” DO THE MATH!!!
She says she spends $1000 annually on birth control. Really? Wow! What does she use? Diaphram? The pill? What?
Assuming condoms, a person could purchase a package of 10 for around $10. 1000 divided by 12 means she is spending approximately $83 per month for condoms. That is 80 condoms! Busy woman!
Now, assuming that each encounter averages 20 minutes that means 80 hours of her month, she has set aside for encounters. Twenty hours a week, when does she have time to study?
She fits the standard dictionary definition of “slut”, imho.
Great. Maybe *she* can tell us where the real birth certificate is.
So has the University of Georgetown made any comment regarding all this ‘slutty’ publicity?
The lyrics to your typical rap song are far more disrespectful to women than anything Rush said.
Rush aimed his comments at one woman in particular. Rap songs target women in general.
-——this is about treating women with dignity and respect——
The question becomes “Does a female leftwing spinster slut lawyer wannabe deserve respect?”
No. She must earn it
“Apparently the democrat sluts are feeling picked on.”
Tell them to fluke off.
You make an EXCELLENT point!
Ahhhh. Remember the days when Liberals used to laugh at such things.
So far there are over 70 replies to this post.
Many more than most get so I guess OTHER folks may be interested.
If you don’t care for the post material, don’t read it.
Relax, my point was to describe the media meme that was created by the MSM and used by Obama to discredit conservatives and distract the country from the real news and real problems for the three-day news cycle, all because Rush unwisely gave them an opening. You are not supposed to give your opponent ammo in a propoganda war.
Post of the day!
Saul Alinsky baby.
It’s not just for the left anymore...
Good on our side for finally, finally, after all this time finally giving back as good as we get.
We need a (lot) more of this. Get in their faces.
Make the left worry, that they’ll be ostracized for being immoral and wrong.
Alinsky rules work both ways.
“And...Andrew Breitbart dies.Ted Nugent endorses Romney.Vladimir Putin vows to defend Christians.Surreal”
All that too. But when I mention how easily the media can take something off-color from the self-proclaimed leader of the republican party, and use against conservatives - some posters seem to think I myself was agreeing with the MSM-created narrative and interpretation.
By the way, great about-page.
I disagree, Flukes testimony was so contrived and unintentionally facetious, this is exactly what she deserves. Opprobrium and scorn heaped high, from every side. Rush should double down on it, because it will go over the heads of the media and resonate with normal people who have more common sense.
The more we ignore the lefts inanity, the more we will get. Rip their guts out. Make them own their asinine, deluded rationalizations.
Rush is 100% on the mark in his analogy.
“Rush hit a nerve with the sluts.”
Myself, I found it a bit ungentlemanly to call a woman a slut because she has sex for enjoyment, not merely for procreation. In fact, where I come from, it is considered ungentlemanly to call any woman a slut.
The Staten Island “Mob Wives” probably found it objectionable too.
But, maybe not-—they talk worse than that to one another, actually.
Rush doesn’t need to apologize to me.
I am a woman and agree with him 100%.
Jerry Brown’s “wife” called Meg Whitman, now CEO of HP, a “whore” for donations....
real class act in CA...
Yep...and what’s telling is many of OUR GUYS are chiming in on the Rush pile up...
we need a purge NOW of the party...
NO MORE RINOs!!!!
NBC Goes Vile: Jimmy Fallons Band Welcomes Michele Bachmann With Lyin Ass Bitch
I sure hope you are right. I lost sleep over the way this is going last night, with advertisers pulling their adds from his program. The other day a friend on Facebook posted the Huffington Post article about Rush's comments. I spent all day debating one of her friends on the issue, not his "slut" comment. His last comment made it obvious he had no idea about what money was, where wealth came from and was very willing to become a slave of the state, so I just posted a bunch of great Jefferson and De Tocqueville quotes and told him I was done. The next morning, my friend, who had mentioned Jefferson in one of her comments in which she said she was not equating Rush to Hitler, cough cough, had pulled the entire conversation. She's a History professor at a midwest university, by the way.
The issue is that the student insurance offered by Georgetown did not include birth control coverage because as a Catholic institution it would violate their religious doctrine.I would assume the policy that does not include birth control coverage is cheaper than one that does. Student health insurance policies that include birth control coverage are readily available with all private health insurers.So she could easily have obtained a policy that included birth control coverage and paid the extra premium with any number of student health insurance carriers. Instead she insisted that students attending school to get an education rather than sleeping around should be forced to pay the extra premium to have coverage for something they have no intention of ever using. I guess freedom of choice to her means the type of extracurricular activity she will engage in that evening rather than individuals having the right to choose coverage needs.
Drill here! Drill now!
“where I come from, it is considered ungentlemanly to call any woman a slut.”
Really? You come from a place that has wussies for men that also have no standards?? Why does the word exist if your “men” are afraid to use it?
Am embarassed to be from SI. I guarantee that all 3 of these bimbo “lawmakers” never actually listened to Rush for even one minute in their entire lives. Fluke (pronounced “Fluck” by some) is a slut. According to Rush, Obama called her and told her that her “mother must be proud”...I’m sure she’s busting her buttons with pride. After all doesnt every mother want their daughters to grow up to announce to the world that she has so much sex that she cant afford contraception...Heck, if worse comes to worse she could always get a free abortion from Planned Parenthood. Wouldn’t that make her mother even MORE proud and send the liberals over the moon, giddy with delight!
“In fact, where I come from, it is considered ungentlemanly to call any woman a slut.”
We’re not dealing with gentlemen; we’re dealing with Marxists, thieves and sluts.
That’s what this thread is about, and better than 99% of the posters to this thread know that. You just plain missed the mark.
after Sandra Fluke testified before Congress about the need for contraceptive coverage. "What does it say about the college coed ... who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex?" Limbaugh said on Wednesday. "It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex."Thanks sickoflibs.
Three more lying Democrats.
“this is about treating women with dignity and respect.”
Hello? If this was a man “testifying” about his need for financial support so he could buy condoms, or get a vasectomy, etc, I’d be all over his $$#@ too. Personally, I think anyone who screws outside marriage is, in truth, a “slut”. I.e., just a nasty name for “immoral libertine”.
Isn't a slut allowed to make history?
Rush is just trying to help.
