Pelosi: Limbaugh's 'vicious attacks' on student uncivilized By Mike Lillis - 02/29/12 08:23 PM ET
House Democrats went after Rush Limbaugh Wednesday for his attacks on a university student who recently testified before Congress on women's reproductive health.
Limbaugh on Wednesday called Georgetown Law Center student Sandra Fluke a "slut" and a "prostitute" for her support of the Obama administration's new birth-control mandate.
Behind House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), the Democrats said Limbaugh's remarks were uncivilized and misogynistic. They're asking Republican leaders to denounce the popular conservative radio host.
Limbaugh's attacks, the Democrats said, "are outside the circle of civilized discussion and unmask the strong disrespect for women held by some in this country."
"We call upon the Republican leaders in the House to condemn these vicious attacks on Ms. Fluke, which are in response to her testimony to the Congress," they added.
Aside from Pelosi, Democratic Reps. Louise Slaughter (N.Y.), Rosa DeLauro (Conn.), Carolyn Maloney (N.Y.), Elijah Cummings (Md.) and Diana DeGette (Col.) as well as Del. Eleanor Holmes-Norton (D.C.) endorsed the message.
Fluke has become something of an unwitting celebrity on Capitol Hill this month after Republicans on the Oversight and Government Reform Committee denied the Democrats' request to have her testify on Obama's new birth control mandate. Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) argued that the policy concerns religious freedom, not reproductive health.
Democrats pounced, hoping to portray the Republicans as out-of-touch with women's healthcare needs. To highlight the saga, Democratic leaders had Fluke discuss the issue last week before the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee.
That testimony led Limbaugh to claim Wednesday that Fluke "wants to be paid to have sex."
"What does it say about the college co-ed Susan [sic] Fluke who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex? What does that make her?" Limbaugh asked. "It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute.
"She wants to be paid to have sex," he added. "Shes having so much sex she cant afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex."
Pelosi and the Democrats are hoping such statements from conservatives will help them with Independent voters particularly women in November.
"Democrats will always stand up for womens health and womens voices, their statement concludes.
If the student is stupid enough to put herself in the limelight, then she is an open target for ridicule. And Limbaugh is right!
Go get ‘em, Rush!
Is this the issue were we are being lied to. The one about it cost these students $3,000 per year for contraceptives and they are going broke from the cost yet a pharmacy right down the road from the college has them for $9.00 per month? Is so the vicious part is the lying to Americans!
Who'd want to have sex with any of these scags?
this woman can take a hike. What is she 90, now?
How is one supposed to respect a woman who needs $3000 per year for contraceptives and wants someone else to pay for it? How many times a day does she have sex?
So the Witch is defending the whore.
Rush’s ratings are getting ready to sky rocket, and in an election year, that can’t be good for Dems.
Notice how they don’t actually argue with Rush’s logic... because they can’t.
Instead, they feign outrage.
“this woman can take a hike. What is she 90, now?”
Besides seeing BJ Clinton settle his sexual harassment lawsuit for $890K (it was about Paula, not Monica), watching Nancy Pelosi lose her House leadership position was one of my favorite political moments. Oh, and the emergence of former presidential candidate Jesse Jackson’s bastard after the 2000 election - priceless.
Regulate religious freedom.
Provide free sex tools to all americans
Regulate free speech and the press
Orchestrate federal propaganda
Mandate all private health insurance policy content
What is she 90, now? Actually she’s as old as the devil.
That was no student. I saw the photo. It was Sean Penn in drag.
The real question now, would seem to be, just what does that make mizz pillocy, and her cast of agreeing likeminds, who are reaching into the publics pockets to retrieve some loose change in support of something the public has no business supporting. Explain to me how college student life is all about such frequent sexual contact that my female/male health is at risk?
The previous question does not begin to address the issue regarding parental responsibility for children’s behavior.
The mere suggestion that the American people need to pay for a child’s irresponsible decisions, when the parents and child are at issue, is typical of the lengths progressives will go to completely bastardize an issue, turn reality on its head and deceive the American people while mounting the high ground in the process.
The proof of the pudding would be the defense turning themselves inside out, in explanation of why I should have to pay for extracurricular sexual activity on a college campus.
Give them aspirin-it’s cheaper.
Rush calculated that she has sex 2.7 times a day, every day, all year.
Or so she claims. To do that, she'd need fifty blind, non-condom-wearing boyfriends.
She's probably pestilential.
Any port in a storm...
while I read the transcript of this girl’s statements, my thoughts about her testimony were not all that different from Limbaugh’s.
I didn’t go so far as labelling her a prostitute, but she certainly portrayed herself as someone who was having SO MUCH SEX that the taxpayer was going to have to subsidize her activity.
Does that make me a misogynist?
Oh well...I suppose that’s better than being a liberal.
Looks like Rush really got under that stretched-like-a-snaredrum skin of Pelosi’s.
Whenever a politician attacks a private citizen by name and demands retribution for what that citizen said, that’s fascism, pure & simple.
It’s also fun to watch, just like seeing secondary explosions from the cockpit of a bomber.
FU satan... you dress wearing whore.
If she thinks Rush was bad, she should listen to Glenn Beck’s comments. Unfortunately this student represents the “Entitlement Generation” and soon they will outnumber us. If the U.S. doesn’t get a fiscal conservative in office soon, we’re doomed.
And Nancy brings a knife to a gunfight. Go Rush.
Can’t wait to tune in today, he gets so into their heads.
I think some of her supposed “birth control” money is spent on her dates buying extra strong paper bags, and still needing to double bag.
Yes. That is rude and juvenile.
Seems to be all he's good at.(besides destroying America)
Universal suffrage is a problem of its own right. Take the vote away from those who are on the dole.
Our government needs to stay out of the sound stations in America. My ears, my body. And little Miss Fluke needs to open more book and less leg.
Rumer!! Rumer Willis!!?! Is that you?
Maybe Georgetown should let parents know it has to raise tuition to pay for the free sex premiums. That should go over well. /s
GREAT idea...these 'whores and sluts' have parents...let THEM pick up the tab. Love it!
Who couldn’t have called this?
“Big bad conservative man attacks poor wittle girl cahwedge student.”
Pelosi and Fluke should check Proverbs where they will find Our Maker calls her even worse names.
Yes. They have been screaming bloody murder for years that the government needs to stay out of the bedroom. This situation applies.
Walking around with a tattoo on your forehead that says: ‘I am a slut’ is kind’s asking for the worst!!!!
I call on House Democrats to denounce Nancy Pelosi for being humorless and Limbaughphobic.
The Dems know that Obummer will do very poorly with men this November. So, they must lock up the female vote and that means painting the Republicans, regardless of the candidate, as not only anti-abortion but anti-contraception. There will be a steady diet of these types of stories.
You should put a bag over your post. I am about to throw up.
Except this isn't about "women's health", this is about the Democrat's obsession with sex and the continued moral degradation of society. Good on Rush and even better that crazy Pelosi went after Rush because now he can eviscerate her after provocation.
On another note, if I were that girl's mother (thankfully, I'm not) I'd slap her back to infancy for the shame she brought upon our family. Of course, she's probably the product of a couple of clueless libs who are beaming with pride at the "independent and free-thinking" daughter they raised.
I listened, I thought, to all of Rush yesterday. I don’t believe I heard him describing this particular slot machine as a whore or a prostitute. Did I miss something?
“Demonstrating absurdity by being absurd” Rushes preferred method of Satire... totally lost on the left’s way of thinking.
Ha! Now we have heard the trash talk from one of the slut’s head pimps.
As I have noted elsewhere, if I’m paying for your sex life slut, then I expect services for the money I pay.
Dont’ like being called a prostitute slut? Then don’t demand that others pay for you to have sex.
The left uses victimhood very effectively.
They look for things to be offended about in order to silence truth speakers.
The is what “Political Correctness” (originally called Cultural Marxism) is all about.
Botox Barbie needs to get herself laid - it would do her some good.
No. What pe-louse-i and other asshat, moonbat lib losers are trying to do to America is uncivilized.
