  • Politico Reporter Smears: Limbaugh Is Like the 'Serial Murderer' With 'Bodies in the Trunk' (Video)

    According to Joe Williams, the senior White House reporter for Politico, Rush Limbaugh is like the "serial murderer" who was caught with "three bodies in the trunk." The veteran journalist made the outrageous comparison on Tuesday's Martin Bashir show, a program that included other liberal smears against the conservative radio host. Before making his offensive connection, Williams highlighted his background covering the police. Regarding Limbaugh's comments about Sandra Fluke, the journalist linked: "... [Law enforcement] always would catch the serial murder because he was driving around with a busted taillight, not because he had, like, three bodies in the trunk."...
  • UNIVERSITY OF ROCHESTER ECONOMIST: Rush Limbaugh Is Right, Sandra Fluke Is A 'Prostitute'

    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...
  • Is Sandra Fluke Coordinating with the White House?

    Liberal activist Sandra Fluke made her case to the mostly female audience of the ABC show "The View," where she claimed —apparently without irony— that she is being silenced by Rush Limbaugh. She also gave a significant clue that her "stunned” sense of outrage seems to be a scripted part of a larger narrative trifecta: supporting Obamacare, destroying religious liberty and silencing the right. Anyone who follows the Institutional Left was probably suspicious when President Obama called Ms. Fluke on the phone in his unofficial role as Community Organizer in Chief. I scoured the history books and can't find another...

    Critics of conservative host Rush Limbaugh are making a push to get him taken off Armed Forces Radio. A petition on the White House's website requests that Limbaugh's show no longer be aired on the armed forces network, which reaches U.S. troops overseas. As of 7:30 tonight, more than 10,500 people had signed the petition, which was posted to the site Sunday. Limbaugh last week attacked Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke after she testified before Congress in favor of a requirement backed by the Obama administration to require health insurance companies to provide contraception coverage. Limbaugh has since apologized.

    Furious Democrat activists are working to silence Rush Limbaugh for good, calling on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to pull his radio show off the air. An activist on signon.org is collecting signatures in support of a petition to FCC to, "remove Mr. Limbaugh from the radio as he has violated FCC rules and regulations countless times. The most recent incident being his assault on women and his degradation of Sandra Fluke." The petition is circulating on Facebook and Twitter and on Democrat message boards. Signon.org is an online service provided by MoveOn.org and has already gathered over 6,000 supporters....

    It is not bad enough that he provides partisan blather, that he demeans our President. He has regularly demeaned women. His remarks this week were well beyond the pale of what should be broadcast to our military and their families, supported with our tax dollars. We have a moral objection to our tax dollars being used for such a purpose. You should move immediately to cancel any further broadcast through government facilities of his venom. There is no excuse for the US Government, in any capacity, giving this man an audience.

    Washington Examiner ^ | 3+5+12 | Charlie Spierling
    On the View this morning on ABC, Sandra Fluke did not appear willing to accept Rush Limbaugh's apology issued over the weekend for calling her "a slut" on his program. "Well, let me just say this, and I encourage everyone to look at the statement in its entirety online but what I have to say is that I don't think that a statement like this issued saying that his 'choice of words was not the best' changes anything." said Fluke, when asked by Barbara Walters if she accepted the apology. "Especially when that statement is issued when he's under significant...
  • Don Imus lambasts Limbaugh over Fluke flak

    Sometimes it takes one to know one. Fox Business Network’s Imus In The Morning host Don Imus—who knows a thing or two about public apologies—didn’t find Rush Limbaugh’s weekend mea culpa to Sandra Fluke particularly convincing. Imus’ take: “A lame apology on his website, in which he says he didn’t mean to personally attack her, is gutless.” Imus took issue with Limbaugh’s “sustained, vile, personal attack” on Fluke over three days, and said that if he’s going to apologize, you have to “go sit down with her.” And there’s (much) more. Imus, who doesn't spare himself when using sometimes over-the-top-language,...

    Rush Limbaugh explains his apology on his Monday, March 5, 2012 program. LIMBAUGH: This is the mistake I made: In fighting them on this issue last week, I became like them. Against my own instincts, against my own knowledge, against everything that I know to be right and wrong, I descended to their level when I used those two words to describe Sandra Fluke. That was my error. I became like them. And I feel very badly about that. I've always tried to maintain a very high degree of integrity and independence on this program. Nevertheless, those two words were...

    Sandra Fluke  is now the official, media-designated victim of woman-hating Republicans, with an assist from Rush Limbaugh.Where have we seen this soap opera before? That's an important question, because this is the Big Play of the scapegoating left.  It's pure, standard Alinsky, and they do it over and over again.That's why it is important for normal, decent Americans to learn how it works. Once you recognize it you'll see it done over and over again. Conservatives who can't predict the radical left are losers. As in football, we have to study the playbook of the opposition. It's the first...
