  • FCC should clear Limbaugh from airwaves

    [...] These are just a few samples from the arsenal of degrading language Limbaugh deploys on women, people of color, lesbians and gays, immigrants, the disabled, the elderly, Muslims, Jews, veterans, environmentalists and so forth. Limbaugh doesn't just call people names. He promotes language that deliberately dehumanizes his targets. Like the sophisticated propagandist Josef Goebbels, he creates rhetorical frames -- and the bigger the lie the more effective -- inciting listeners to view people they disagree with as sub-humans. His longtime favorite term for women, "femi-nazi," doesn't even raise eyebrows anymore, an example of how rhetoric spreads when unchallenged by...
  • Illegal robocalls accuse Republicans over Rush Limbaugh and 'slut' slur

    A group calling itself "The Women of the 99 Percent" is making robocalls across the United States in an attempt to link Republican members of the House of Representatives to "the war on women led by Rush Limbaugh". The automated calls are illegal because they do not state who they are from (there is no known group called The Women of the 99 Percent) or provide a callback number, as required under the US Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991. ...snip... Telephone calls and emails to the DCCC and the Democratic National Committee asking whether either organisation was connected to...

    Sarah Palin is called the c word and the t word by Bill Maher. Maher gives a million dollars to Obama's SuperPac. Jackson Lee and Jan Schakowsky were given the opportunity to condemn the horrible comments, but they refused. Since the words are apparently not offensive to the congresswomen, they should enjoy singing along. TURN ON YOUR SPEAKERS AND HAVE FUN

    On paper, it was a great week for the left. On paper, Rush Limbaugh swallowed hard and finally did get that piece of humble pie to go down. On paper -- and HBO -- the cool kids, it turns out, aren't finished piling on Sarah Palin. On paper, Newt Gingrich is still in love with the sound of his own voice, Rick Santorum still sees delegate math as one of those things only college snobs care about, Ron Paul is still the crazy uncle you left up in the attic, and what's left of a torn and tattered Mitt Romney...
  • Is this why Sandra Fluke went public?

    WorldNetDaily ^ | Aaron Klein
    Prior to her statements to congressional Democrats, did Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke have any prior connection to Obama administration officials? Did the congresswomen who pushed Flukes testimony coordinate with a marketing and polling outfit that recently conducted a survey to determine whether contraception mandates can become a possible presidential election issue? According to some reports, it was Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., who pushed for Flukes testimony. Maloney also initiated the call for Fluke to sue Rush Limbaugh for his on-air derogatory remark about Fluke, according to the Daily Beast. Maloney is tied to a progressive pollster, Celinda Lake,...

    FrontPage Magazine ^ | March 5, 2012 | Bruce Thornton
    Rush Limbaugh has got the progressives pitching a fit over some remarks on his radio show about a Georgetown University law student named Sandra Fluke. Fluke had made the preposterous claim, while addressing House Democrats over President Obamas rule forcing Catholic institutions to pay for contraception, that the cost of birth control was prohibitive for Georgetown law students. Limbaugh responded by calling Fluke a slut and a prostitute who is having so much sex, she cant afford the contraception; she wants you and me the taxpayers to pay her. Progressive dudgeon hit the stratosphere. Democrat Representative Louise Slaughter...

  • Gingrich Slams Media on Limbaugh Focus

    Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich slammed the elite media for focusing on the contraception controversy that Rush Limbaugh escalated last week instead of reporting on the issues relevant to the campaign. I am astonished at the desperation of the elite media to avoid rising gas prices, to avoid the presidents apology to religious fanatics in Afghanistan, to avoid a trillion-dollar deficit, to avoid the longest period of unemployment since the Great Depression, and to suddenly decide that Rush Limbaugh is the great national crisis of the week, the former House speaker said Sunday on NBCs Meet the Press. The controversy...

    The Georgetown University law student who was called a slut by Rush Limbaugh for testifying on Capitol Hill about womens access to contraception condemned the conservative radio host Thursday night for remarks outside the bounds of civil discourse. Im not the first woman to be treated this way by numerous conservative media outlets, and hopefully Ill be the last, Sandra Fluke said on MSNBCs The Ed Show. This is really inappropriate. This is outside the bounds of civil discourse. I would always be willing to speak out in favor of womens health and the type of accessible affordable health care...

    Write on Nevada ^ | March 9, 2012 | Andy Matthews
    Im not interested in rehashing the details of the Rush Limbaugh/Sandra Fluke controversy, because this sensationalist storyline has distracted so many people from the infinitely more important debate on whether the federal government ought to be able to force health-insurance providers to cover the purchase of contraceptives. It is, fundamentally, a debate over the very nature of government. Its a debate that those of us who believe in limited government and individual freedom ought to welcome. And its one we need to win. Thats because its a debate that so perfectly illuminates the core differences between the two main competing...

    In the second half of his second hour today, Rush Limbaugh followed up on a phone call from a "Victor in Atlanta." Vince is concerned that many Americans like him, even though they want a different president, are "zapped out of enthusiasm." Rush took Vince's call as an opportunity to look at the Sandra Fluke controversy of the past week and use its results as an indicator that enthusiasm for defending conservatives and conservative principles against the hate-filled left is as great as ever -- great enough to not only defeat the attempt to marginalize him but to force the...

    By Bill O'ReillyAs we reported last night, "The Factor" believes that the Sandra Fluke contraception controversy was manufactured to divert attention away from the Obama administration's disastrous decision to force Catholic non-profit organizations to provide insurance coverage for birth control and the morning after pill. That might very well be unconstitutional.

    “Who,” Fox News host Bill O’Reilly asked on his program Thursday night, “is running Sandra Fluke?” He explained to viewers that The Factor believes that the controversy surrounding the activist and Georgetown law student has been manufactured in a calculated move to help the Obama administration. The Factor is having some trouble, O’Reilly explained, tracking down who it is, exactly, that has been setting up Fluke’s media appearances. Just last week, he shared, his show called Fluke on her cell phone, inviting her onto the show. She has yet to call them back. “Very unusual,” said O’Reilly. “There was no...
