Laura Ingraham: Barbara Walters Laughed When I Was Called A Slut
Realclearpolitics ^ | March 6, 2012 | Laura Ingraham

Posted on 03/06/2012 3:59:40 PM PST by Marguerite

Laura Ingraham talks about Ed Schultz calling her a "right-wing slut" on talk radio and compares it to the way the media is reacting to Rush Limbaugh.

"I have an enormous amount of respect for what Barbara Walters accomplished in journalism as a woman, breaking down barriers," Laura remarked today, noting how disappointed she was that Walters seemed to side only with women of a certain political viewpoint when they are personally maligned. Moreover, Walters allowed her program "The View" to be used by the left to sell the "phony narrative" of the "GOP war on women" by sympathetically showcasing contraceptive activist Sandra Fluke. In May of 2011, the hosts of The View, including Walters herself laughed off the "slut" issue when liberal radio host Ed Schultz used the term to describe Laura. The View creator and host pretended to cry, adding that Joy Behar routinely called her a slut. A double standard? Of course," Ingraham said on her radio show today.

Jeeze...
Doesn’t Laura realize that Democrats, and those in the media that support them, are above the rules that apply to simple mortal men now??

People like Maher and Walters may experience a sudden reckoning some day.

Does anybody take Barbar Walters seriouslly? I know she didn’t serve in Viet Nam like Kerrey but she had an affair with Ed Brooke she is pretty proud of.

This is disappointing because Walters should know better and should be more concerned about the health care/eugenics resurgence. Barbara Walters was an unwitting subject of a eugenic study back in her college days.

Sleeping your way to the top is "breaking down barriers"??

Last night FOX played a montage of Lefties using the Slut word and the “B” word when describing conservative women. All of those show lost no advertising.

Barbar Walters has no class. She announced her affair with Brooke to the whole world while Brooke’s wife and daughters are still alive. She does not know when to shut up and mind her own business.

Does anyone know if the View gets any kind of numbers in viewers or is just propped by the network to keep these hags employed?
Who REALLY watches this show??????

Sleeping your way to the warm part of the cave is definitely the oldest ploy going.

Walters would have lost that spot by now and frozen to death down the hill out front ~ not even a tasty morsel for the roving Sabre Toothed Tigers in the neighborhood.

The hypocrisy of the leftist is staggering.

Who slammed Schultz when he said on TV:

“Like this right-wing slut, what’s her name, Laura Ingraham? Yeah, she’s a talk slut.”

Ed Schultz, MSNBC (May 18, 2011)

Did Obama called Laura to console her?
Did the liberal media condemned Schultz?

I never watched that show, so I wouldn’t know. I rarely watch entertainment TV, if ever.

This is just why I have a really BIG problem with conservatives.

They are willing to stand in the middle of the arena, and pray while being devoured by lions.

They are always willing to “turn the other cheek.”

They, like RUSHBO said today, “Will NOT stoop to their enemy’s level.” Too bad Rushbo, you LOST ME today.

Well guess what, like my handle says, I WILL stoop to my enemy’s level, because: “REFUSING TO STOOP TO YOUR ENEMY’S LEVEL, ONLY GETS YOU CUT OFF AT THE KNEES!” (Sun Tsu)

Turning the “other cheeck” only gets you b*tch slapped twice!

“The Lord helps those who help themselves.” If you are unwilling to defend yourself, put salt and pepper over your heads, because I hear lions like human flesh with a little flavor.

Sorry Christians, I am NOT one of you. But I am a person who lives by the morals set down by the original Judeo/Christian values on which this country was founded.

For better or worse, I am ‘married’ to you. If you fail, I fail. And I WILL NOT allow you to fail, because I WILL NOT bend a knee to either communist pigs, nor to muzslime neanderthals.

Buck up buckos, Agnostics like me are up your b*tts and we will NOT let go.

Our futures depend on you. And we will not let you wimp out.

Maybe it is okay to call someone a slut if they are NOT a slut, but if they actually are a slut then you must not say it. Speaking the truth is the crime here and thou shalt not speak of true things.

"The left is allowed to do whatever they want."

They will even call themselves "sluts" if they want to:

Since this has somewhat become a recounting of the ugly antics on The View,
Recall the times that Joy Behar said of Sharon Angle,
“Come on down here, BITCH!”

I hope I can one day encounter Joy and give her a real shout.

Didn't Oprah look down on Barbara the cun* for having an affair with a black man - and acting like that had something to do with civil rights?

I'm sure liberals are laughing and whooping it up over our use of words like 'whore' and 'c*nt' - those are the words they laugh at when HBO's Bill Maher talks about conservative women like Sarah Palin...

It's funny when Maher says those words... but not when we use them? Why is that?

Do the c*nts at the New York Times laugh and snicker when conservative women are called filthy names? Maybe Maureen Dowd can explain why calling conservative women filthy names is funny - but calling liberal women the same is ... well, horrible. The rubes out here in the hinterland don't understand our betters....

What I’d like to know is how Walters survived the comet impact that killed off all the dinosaurs 65 million years ago.

Even worse than that... he was a Republican! You think Baba would have been drummed out of the club for that. ;~))

Well, that list is certainly a short one (Ed Brooke?)

What offends you more? That he was black? The he was a Senator? Or that he was married?

Barbara Walters claim to fame is the affair she had with a Negro U.S. Senator from Massachusetts! Barbara also is a FLUKE!
