Skip to comments.Shorter ‘Washington Post’: Bill '****' Maher’s Million Okay For Obama, GOP Must Abandon Limbaugh
Posted on 03/03/2012 11:45:51 AM PST by Qbert
Today, the editorial board of the Washington Post took a stand against Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh, claiming that the GOP must distance itself from the popular radio talker.
IN A DEMOCRACY, standards of civil discourse are as important as they are indefinable. Yet wherever one draws the line, Rush Limbaughs vile rants against Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke crossed it.
His way of showing this anger was to smear Ms. Fluke, who approached Congress to support the plan, as a slut seeking a government subsidy for her promiscuity...[Snip]
What we are saying is that Mr. Limbaugh has abused his unique position within the conservative media to smear and vilify a citizen engaged in the exercise of her First Amendment rights, and in the process he debased a national political discourse that needs no further debasing. This is not the way a decent citizen behaves...
On February 24, news broke that television show host Bill Maher pledged one-million dollars in support of the re-election of Barack Obama. While noting that the pledge makes Maher one of Obamas largest dollar supporters, the story also notes Mahers disdain for Republican politicians.
Less than a year ago, in March of 2011, Maher called Palin a dumb tw*t, as reported here by the Daily Caller. On March 29, 2011, the Caller also reported that Maher called Palin the C-word.
The facts above suggest that, as it is acting only now, when it involves a conservative and the GOP, the Posts seemingly lofty call for civility in discourse as well as a voice in who politicians, or political parties may align with is subject to the charge of being driven by an egregious double standard, if not political ideology.

The GOP abandoned Rush a long time ago, although they live to ride his bandwagon when they need to raise money.
live>>>love (need my glasses)
When a far left ass clown calls a conservative woman a nasty name, they get away with it because they have full control over the media, and in their minds, a pro life conservative woman deserves being called those names..but if you call a liberal woman, who flaunts the fact that she is a whore, if a conservative calls that person what they are, then the libs are outraged..we will always have hypocrisy in the media as long as left wing kooks control it
She's NOT a law student or even 23 years old as she claimed. She's a 30 year old radical leftist lawyer with an agenda. Read the other threads on this. One is posted on the main thread page on the right sidebar.
Don’t forget the main-stream smearing of ordinary, patriotic Americans as “tea-baggers”.
Rush Limbaugh was correct when he was describing Ms. FLUKE!
She paying thousands and thousands per semester to go to one of the most expensive Law Schools in America, and she is demanding as a right, FREE CONTRACEPTIVES!! As they pointed out yesterday, Contraceptives are already FREE!
This is a STRAW DOG the DEMORATS are creating to take the American Voter’s mind off the agony and poor ecomomy that the RATS have given us! Washington Post, go to HADES!!
This would be an easy battle to win if Conservatives were serious about the fight.
Has the Left conveniently forgotten they held a series of “Slut Walks” for “reproductive rights” last year? They were very well covered in the mainstream media. Let’s help them remember.
Honestly, I’d much rather abandon the GOP.
In the video of Maher calling Palin a “dumb tw*t”, the audience cheered in approval. The lefties aren’t even trying to hide their double standards anymore.
And who can forget this one?...:
“California NOW Chief: Calling Whitman a ‘Whore’ is Accurate”
Fat chance these bozos can undo the amount of truth Limbaugh has put out there. They are trying to use one instance to push people from a guy who is usually, but not always, right on.
This issue will pass. Nobody really cares one bit if her feelings got hurt. She, herself, claims to be so promisculous that she uses all that birth control and we are supposed to pay for it. Personally, I object to paying for anybody’s birth control. That is the issue. These attacks mean nothing to that issue.
When all is said and done, Obama and his mandate are garbage. People will wake up and realize the they should not be asked to pay for birth control for someone having fun. It will soon stop.
The Washington Post knows NOTHING about civil discourse. The Washington Post is a pigsty of American journalism.
Hammer meets nail, great point!
"Has the Left conveniently forgotten they held a series of Slut Walks for reproductive rights last year? They were very well covered in the mainstream media. Lets help them remember."
"Nasty little Billy" really needs to be put in a home for perverts.
Why are you here, lefty? The GOP may suck right now, but the dems are much, much better...fool. The GOP is what we make them. Don’t like the GOP in its present configuration get into your local GOP and start making a difference...your snarky retorts are meaningless...makes you feel awesome though, huh? See last word of sentence two.
Limbaugh's comments certainly have much more basis in fact than the epithets hurled around by Bill Maher.
These libs are absolutely hilarious in their butt-licking of their leaders whom I will not name, in deference to the UAV that is circling over my home at this moment, and in actually thinking (or pretending to think) that we are falling for their misrepresentation of the facts.
Of course, if no one misrepresented (i.e., lied), there would probably be no liberals, but I digress.
I could waste my time sending a list of what the libs call ‘civil discourse’ in their alternate world, to these dingbats, but my time is worth more than that.
Suffice it to say, all we should say in response to any of these nonsensical comments and articles is:
(1) someone who wants others to pay them for having sex is not a nice person;
(2) Hearing on Government Overreach (what the congressional hearing was REALLY called.
If Sandra ‘the Slut’ Fluke IS AN ACTUAL Constitutional scholar, I will retract my complaint that she had no business testifying at that hearing; however, in no way did she address Government Overreach except to promote it as it pertained to her agenda (and sex life).
Since she was unable or unwilling to address the actual topic, her ‘testimony’ should be stricken from the record and ignored by serious people.
Rush, however, was dead on, which once again proves that liberals have absolutely NO sense of humor, dislike being laughed at, and when they get really asinine as they have in this instance, they are truly entertaining.
Yeah. Going on nearly four years now of hearing constant lies, slander, and vileness directed towards Palin... Maher’s vulgarisms, the c*nt t-shirts, comedians ‘joking’ about assassinating her or threatening her with gang-rape. Oh, WHERE THE HELL WAS THE MEDIA THEN? Silence. Never a damned word of protest.
I’d love to be in an enclosed room with these media hypocrites, with nothing but a pipe-wrench in my hand.
Yeah, well, she didn’t actually PAY for her expensive education. My understanding is that she was given grants, which is probably why she expects everything she wants to be given to her.
Which makes her both a slut and a money-grubber, at least in my neighborhood. Well, and a liar.
Bill Maher called the Governor of Alaska a “Dumpster Slut”.
I wonder why Obama isn’t demanding that Bill Maher’s million $$$ be given back?
I guess the Washington Post doesn’t remember their June 7, 2011 edition....
Do “Slut walks” make a valid point?
Slutwalks and the future of feminism
They probably had alot more about it too, they supported it!
Rush should take this fight right to obama’s doorstep. He has shyed away from talking about the birth certificate. Well now that he has everyone’s attention, he could put Arpaio’s presentation and accusion of fraud front and center. Hey, he’d just be discussing current events, after all.
Maher can choke on a big one...I’m sure that’s where is dreams run anyway. Go for it Bill...no need to pretend anymore.
The institutional left sees an opportunity for a Breitbart/Limbaugh “twofer” with this latest controversy.
I think the Fluke thing is firing up our base. I know I’m pretty pissed. I’ll probably subscribe to Rush 24/7 again; even though I don’t have time to listen to it.
I’m here, because I’m not a lefty, you GOP fanboi...lol.
Newsflash >>There are a LOT of conservatives who don’t much like the GOP<<
As far as I’m concerned, the GOP is nothing more than a wing of the democrat party.
Don’t like it? I don’t give a ****.
Here is what Spoeko finds out on the slut, She in her early thirties, Listed as you guess a demoRAT, and shows she is still with her parents,
The WashPost loved Slutwalks
Remember when that far-left head of some idiot "women rights" organization pretty much gave leftists like Bill Clinton a pass at rape. Was it Gloria Steinham? Sort of a one free rape card.
Not that I give it too much thought, but I've occasionally wondered if Maher turned out the way he did because he got beaten up too much as a little kid, or not enough. My guess is that he was a bully until the kids he bullied grew up then started beating the crap out of him.
Or maybe he was just sexually abused.
Clinton got a pass from everyone on the left..just goes to show what absolute hypocrites leftists are..but I already knew that
The left talks out of both sides of their mouths...just tell em’ to GO TO HELL, and cut the conversation short.
The left DOES hate being ignored. Either that, or We the People slap them right back with an organized front.
The choices are OURS.
Rush calls Sandra Fluke a whore...all holy hell breaks out;
William Jefferson Clinton treats Monica Lewinsky like a whore...crickets.
Nope. No double standard there. Just move along now.
Oh, but don't forget to drop off your contribution to the contraceptive kitty on your way out. After all, Ms. Fluke has her needs don't ya' know.
Your typo seems FAR more accurate to me ...
