  • Fluke and Liberals' Bodyguard of Lies

    American Thinker ^ | March 8, 2012 | Tom Trinko
    Winston Churchill declared that in war, truth was so precious that it must always be accompanied by a bodyguard of lies. Because liberals are at war with American society and their true beliefs are repugnant to most Americans, liberals constantly conceal the truth of their beliefs with sweet-sounding lies. Liberals constantly create a cloud of lies about their support for tolerance and diversity to conceal the absolutely intolerant core of their faith. Americans are informed that tolerance requires them to accept pornography, abortion, gay marriage, casual sex, and everything else that liberals happen to like. Strangely, however, liberals are not...

    PALM BEACH, Fla. – After national controversy over his calling a Georgetown University law student a “slut” and “prostitute,” radio giant Rush Limbaugh says he has brand-new sponsors lined up to advertise on his program, and some who had canceled are now asking to return. “We have three brand-new sponsors that will be starting in the next two weeks,” Limbaugh said this afternoon, adding he was not going to identify them today. Two of the sponsors who have canceled have asked to return. We are being very careful about that. I’m not gonna give you any names here. One of...

      Slut: An Insult Reserved for Conservative Women David C. Stolinsky Mar. 8, 2012 The mainstream media and politicians from President Obama on down have been strident in condemning Rush Limbaugh for calling 30-year-old law student Sandra Fluke a “slut.” Fluke testified before Congress that health-insurance policies should be required to cover contraceptive pills and morning-after pills. The latter are considered by many to be a form of abortion. Why do liberals, who incessantly push “safe sex,” expect us to pay for a woman’s unprotected sex? This question was not answered, because it was not asked. Note that if...

    At Tuesday afternoon’s press conference, President Obama crystallized the terms of the widespread outrage over Rush Limbaugh’s attacks on Georgetown law student and activist Sandra Fluke, denouncing the remarks, and telling reporters that when he called Ms. Fluke, it was with his own daughters in mind. The President said he wanted his daughters to be able to speak their minds “in a civil and thoughtful way. And I do not want them attacked or called horrible names.” The major miscalculation that Rush Limbaugh made, and which GOP candidates like Mitt Romney have compounded, is that average Americans

    Can conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh’s program survive the firestorm of criticism that’s been leveled at him since he labeled Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” because the law school student argued before the Congress that her school’s health insurance should cover contraception for female students? Experts say Limbaugh is so powerful that he’s likely to weather this latest controversy. ”The Rush Limbaugh Show” is the top-rated radio show in the country, reaching an estimated 15 million listeners on nearly 600 stations. So far, only two stations — WBEC in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, and KPUA in Hilo, Hawaii —...

KPUA in Hilo, Hawaii, and WBEC in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, announced today that they would no longer carry the show after the right-wing radio host called Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke a ‘slut’ and ‘prostitute’ over her support of President Barack Obama’s new contraception plan. Limbaugh made a rare public apology on Saturday in the wake of the uproar caused by his comments, which led to several advertisers pulling out of the...

    Remember, as Byron York previously reported, Fluke was rejected as a last-minute substitute witness at a Feb. 16 committee hearing because staffers for Chairman Issa were unable to discover Fluke’s claim to expertise relevant to the subject of the hearing. This law school journal article is the sort of thing that might have been discovered about Fluke’s background, had the Democrats who put Fluke forward as a witness done so with the usual 72-hour advance notice. Here’s one brief quote from the article: Transgender persons wishing to undergo the gender reassignment process frequently face heterosexist employer health insurance policies that label...

The scandal revoles around Rush Limbaugh showing his age by calling the 30-year-old Democrat political activist and erstwhile Georgetown student Sandra Fluke a "slut" just because she tesified before Congress that she wants other people to pay for the $3,000 per year in contraception that she needs in order to stay worry-free as she hops from bed to bed, from one sexcapade to the next. There have been so many new stories of Democrat slime and Republican betrayal breaking every hour that...

Neither host nor guest seemed particularly impressed by Sandra Fluke‘s argument, but they were impressed by how the Democrats used her to dominate the news cycle. Fluke was on The View this morning since she is a celebrity now, and O’Reilly used the fact that she...

    (Georgetown,DC) - Am I the only one at Georgetown who is not upset with Rush right now? His comments regarding Sandra Fluke, third year Law student at Georgetown University, are less outrageous when viewed in the real context of the debate on Obama’s mandate for religious institutions to include contraceptive coverage in their healthcare plans. Fluke, in her own testimony before a Democratic panel, pointed out that the University covered birth control pills when used for the treatment of a medical condition. This is the key to understanding Limbaugh’s comments. When used for medicinal purposes and healthcare, Georgetown has no...

Sometimes people need to be hit over the head with a 2×4 before something sinks in. Before the watching world Ms. Fluke told us that she was sleeping around. Promiscuity and sex before marriage were once considered social taboos. No one denied that people engaged in these types of sexual encounters, but such women were generally looked down upon. I can remember people saying, “It’s OK to have sex with these...

    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,...

    Limbaugh’s career and radio show aren’t in danger. But his professed contrition might help salvage conservatives’ most effective line of attack against Obamacare. Left-leaning pundits and activists who cackle gleefully at the prospect that current controversies will seriously damage Rush Limbaugh’s media career display their own vast ignorance of the talk-radio industry. Yes, El Rushbo’s weekend apology for crude comments about Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke demonstrate his own recognition that these remarks fell far short of the “broadcast excellence” he regularly promises his 15 million listeners. But neither uproar from all quarters against Limbaugh’s language, nor the much-publicized phone...
