    Legal Insurrection ^ | March 22, 2012 | Professor William A. Jacobson, esquire
    We live in a world where groups like Media Matters and Think Progress monitor and record every word uttered by any conservative of prominence in the media, hoping to find something “insensitive” with which to mount a campaign to silence the speaker through intimidation of advertisers. So what goes around come around, and Bill Maher is feeling the heat. And Maher doesn’t like it: "Let’s have an amnesty — from the left and the right — on every made-up, fake, totally insincere, playacted hurt, insult, slight and affront.

    When Rush Limbaugh exercised his 1st amendment right to free speech and criticized Sandra Fluke for whining about paying for her birth control pills, Democrats and the liberal mainstream media pounced. Granted Rush used some harsh words to describe Sandra Fluke, but that was his first amendment right. What’s despicable is the hypocrisy exhibited by Democrats and President Obama who don’t apply this same standard of decency to left wing comedian Bill Maher, who on a daily basis says things more offensive than Rush Limbaugh ever has. Could it be because Bill Maher is a huge supporter of Democrats and...

    David Brock is so outraged at Rush Limbaugh’s words of three weeks ago that he started organizing a protest — almost 3 years ago. It was planned ahead and activated at the first moment Brock could manipulate a media frenzy. Make no mistake, Brock’s “marketplace of ideas” offers only one brand: Brand Brock. All others will be forced off the shelves with intimidation and lies. Media Matters for America stands for censorship, and nothing more than that. Their ginned-up election year anger is directed at the words of their media political opposition — similar expressions are ignored when used by...

(Snip) After she spoke, asked Fluke: “You said we shouldn’t tolerate demeaning language for women. Should we tolerate Bill Maher for calling Sarah Palin some of the stuff he’s said?” Fluke responded: “I’m not going to speak about particular labels that have been applied to particular women. But no matter who is demeaning women, it’s always unacceptable.”

    An in-depth look at Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown Law student who demands that health insurers pay for birth control, abortifacients, abortions, and sterilization procedures – even at religious institutions that object to such requirements on moral grounds. Born in 1981, Sandra Fluke graduated from Cornell University in 2003 with bachelor's degrees in (a) Policy Analysis & Management, and (b) Feminist, Gender, & Sexuality Studies. She subsequently worked with the New York City-based Sanctuary for Families, which provides services for victims of domestic violence and sex trafficking.

    March 16, 2012 ( - The notion that men should have a say in abortion or “reproductive rights” seems preposterous to pro-choice groups. So much so that Planned Parenthood has challenged state laws requiring spousal consent for abortion (Planned Parenthood vs. Danforth, Planned Parenthood vs. Casey). They say that men, even husbands, should have absolutely no right to protect their child from abortion. The same goes for birth control. The latest buzz in the “reproductive rights” circle was that men should have no opinion in the matter. So-called feminists like Sandra Fluke would like us to believe that her uterus...

Incredibly, one panelist urged people to be more "mature" and not "poison the atmosphere." I say "incredibly" because this panelist was none other than the race-hustling, anti-Semitic "civil rights activist" and MSNBC talk show host, Al Sharpton. For some reason, Sharpton's own struggles with civility never came up. Nor did any panelist behave so rudely as to bring up Sharpton's role in one of the most hideous, disgusting and cynical uses of the race card this side...

    On his program, Fox News Channel’s Bill O’Reilly found yet another connection between Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke and the Democratic Party. Fluke, a so-called contraceptive advocate, rose to prominence after conservative talker Rush Limbaugh called her a ‘slut’ and a ‘prostitute’ on his radio show. On Thursday, O’Reilly reported that Fluke was being represented by Anita Dunn’s public relations firm SKDKnickerbocker. Dunn, a former adviser to President Barack Obama, served as White House Communications Director in 2009.. O’Reilly found on Friday that Fluke is also dating the son of “Democratic stalwart” William Mutterperl, who has made numerous donations to...

But the big question remains: Just how have Limbaugh’s ratings been affected? There has been no measure of his listenership since the Fluke flap. But nonpartisan radio expert Michael Harrison told The Daily Caller that Limbaugh’s numbers likely are going no where but up — despite the anti-Limbaugh push.

Before making his offensive connection, Williams highlighted his background covering the police. Regarding Limbaugh's comments about Sandra Fluke, the journalist linked: "...

If you listened carefully to the words of the now-famous Sandra Fluke you will have heard that the issue wasn’t whether or not she or her horny classmates could use contraception – but rather who would pay for it. Fluke, you see, was demanding that the pills and condoms be paid for by someone else; and now she’s been joined by aaaaaaacitivists across the country. Somehow in this age of entitlement contraception has become...

    Now that the media feeding frenzy has calmed at least for a bit, it's worth saying that we've missed the whole point on Mizz Sandra Fluke. Fluke is the Georgetown Law School student who testified against the religious right of her school to refuse to pay for contraception because to do so would violate its religious principles. It's titillating -- but irrelevant -- to speculate about Fluke's sexually promiscuity. To try to characterize her as Rush Limbaugh did could be accurate but isn't connected to the political issue at hand. Sandra Fluke is a welfare queen. Remember, back in...

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.

    Progressive pollster Celinda Lake has responded to a KleinOnline investigative report also published at WND that raised questions about her ties to Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke as “paranoia,” “conspiracy theory” and an attempt to deflect “because they won’t condemn Rush Limbaugh.” In the report in question, Klein asked whether the congresswomen who pushed Fluke’s testimony coordinated with Lake’s polling outfit, which recently conducted a survey to determine whether contraception mandates can become a possible presidential election issue. Klein also asked whether Fluke had any prior connection to Obama administration officials before a report came out confirming former White...
  • Is this why Sandra Fluke picked to testify? Progressive groups snagged in birth control debate

    Prior to her testimony to Congress, did Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke have any prior connection to Obama administration officials? Did the Congresswomen who pushed Fluke’s testimony coordinate with a marketing outfit that recently conducted polling to determine whether contraception mandates can become a possible presidential election issue? According to reports, it was Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-New York, who pushed for Fluke’s 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, who recently ran extensive...

    When even casual sex requires a state welfare program, you're pretty much done for.I'm writing this from Australia, so, if I'm not quite up to speed on recent events in the United States, bear with me – the telegraph updates are a bit slow here in the bush. As I understand it, Sandra Fluke is a young coed who attends Georgetown Law and recently testified before Congress. Oh, wait, no. Update: It wasn't a congressional hearing; the Democrats just got it up to look like one, like summer stock, with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid doing the show right here...

    Gloria Allred has sent a letter to Denise Nieman, the County Prosecutor in West Palm Beach, Florida, on behalf of the Women’s Equal Rights Legal Defense and Education Fund, asking for an investigation into whether Rush Limbaugh violated Florida defamation law when he called Sandra Fluke a "slut" and a "prostitute." Allred cites Section 836.04 of Florida Statute, which says that "whoever speaks of and concerning any woman, married or unmarried, falsely and maliciously imputing to her a want of chastity, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor of the first degree."

    It has been one week since Rush Limbaugh first called Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke a "slut" and a "prostitute," but the controversy shows no sign of dying down. Now University of Rochester economist and former Slate blogger Steven Landsburg has jumped to Limbaugh's defense. In a blog post, Landsburg argued that while the talk radio host's language may have been off-color, Limbaugh's logic was analytically shrewd. Fluke, Landsburg writes, "deserves only to be ridiculed, mocked, and jeered" for saying that women should have access to contraception." He adds that Limbaugh's demand that Fluke and other Georgetown students post...

    Sleep Train, one of the companies that dropped its ads from Rush Limbaugh's radio program after Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke a "slut" and a "prostitute," asked Limbaugh for another chance. But Limbaugh denied the company's request. (snip) The Times added that Limbaugh spokesman Brian Glicklich forwarded an email he said had been sent to Sleep Train President Dale Carlsen. According to that email, Limbaugh himself considered the company's request and denied it. “Thank you for your requests last week and this week to restart your voiced endorsement in local markets of The Rush Limbaugh Show,” the email began. “Rush received...

    “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...
