Hugh Hefner warns of GOP ‘war on sex’
The Hill ^ | 4/24/12 | Alicia M. Cohn

Posted on 04/24/2012 4:45:28 PM PDT by ColdOne

Hugh Hefner in an editorial for the May issue of Playboy magazine slammed the GOP presidential field as "repressed conservatives" who are "pounding on America's bedroom door."

Hefner warned readers of his empire’s flagship magazine that members of the Republican Party are waging a “war on sex.”

The phrase — which serves as the title of the editorial — is a new spin on a raging political battle over contraception and federal funding for Planned Parenthood that Democrats have called the “war on women.” But Hefner makes an argument some Democrats have rejected by returning the fraught debate to the issue of “sexual liberation.” Many Democrats have argued that contraception is an element of women’s healthcare, rebuffing Republicans who bring up sexual behavior.

Many of the Republican presidential candidates, including those that have dropped out of the 2012 race, opposed the White House’s mandate earlier this year for employers to include contraception as part of employee insurance coverage without charging a co-pay, and have also proposed defunding Planned Parenthood. Hefner calls out Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Ron Paul in his article as the worst offenders.

It must be sad for Hefner that what he does isn’t all that remarkable anymore and that he has to resort to silly comments as a pathetic attempt at relevance.

The proof of that is the fact that he thinks Mitt Romney is a conservative.

And this is from one of the greatest exploiters of women in history (the other is Larry Flynt, an even sicker porno-king).

Hey Hef. How many women have you used and thrown away like a used rubber? Married how many times? Trying to beat Larry King, eh?

A typical liberal/leftist hypocrite, but because he is in the top “1%” rich, and a Democrat, he gets a pass from the MSM, NOW, Gloria Steinem (perhaps he nailed her before George Wiley did), Sandra Fluke, Hilary Rosen, Michele O, and Nancy “Stretch” Pelosi, and her pet toads, Barbara Boxer and Barbra Streisand.

Would someone of FR please inform the rest of the community the next time the VRWC launches one of these super secret “wars” on something? If I’d known ahead of time we were going to war with sex, I wouldn’t have already surrendered.

Playboy Mansion outbreak: Bacteria traced to whirlpool spa

Health officials identified legionella bacteria in a whirlpool spa at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles during an investigation in February that began when people were sickened after attending a fundraiser.

A number of people came down with a respiratory illness after DomainFest’s Feb. 1-3 conference, which culminated in a fundraiser at the Playboy Mansion in the Holmby Hills area of Los Angeles. Officials investigated to see if legionellosis was at fault; the more severe version of that illness is known as Legionnaires’ disease, while a milder version is called Pontiac fever.

Out of 439 people contacted by L.A. County public health officials, 123 fell sick with fever and at least one other symptom, such as headache, cough, shortness of breath, or aches. Sixty-nine people got sick  on the same day, Feb. 5.

The investigation involved an unusual tactic: the use of social media. Health investigators used blogs, Twitter and Facebook and had an online survey sent to all 715 conference attendees, who had traveled from 30 countries, to determine the extent of the outbreak. Seventy-nine people said through social media that they were ill.

That last girlfriend he was going to marry ran out a few days before the wedding because she said even though she was going to be his wife, she had a 9:00 curfew, had to do whatever he said like “now we eat dinner”, “now we play scrabble” stupid stuff like that you’d expect from an almost 80 year old guy to say to his great granddaughter! She also said of his sexual exploits they were near to none at his age and at something like 20 years old she just couldn’t marry him. Ya think? I guess the money wasn’t enough. So he’s the one actually attempting to “control women”.

His former secretary, Bobbie Arnstein, was found dead in a Chicago hotel room after an overdose of drugs in January 1975. Hefner called a press conference to allege that she had been driven to suicide by narcotics agents and federal officers. Hefner further claimed the government was out to get him because of Playboy’s philosophy and its advocacy of more liberal drug laws.

In 1971, he acknowledged that he experimented in bisexuality.

From what i have read in the past, Hefner donates a lot to feminist causes, which is why he gets a pass from the hatchet-jawed harpies of the left. He’s no friend of men, that’s for sure.

This is why "I only read Playboy for the articles" is an old joke.

Really - who could read this load of BS and find it even remotely believable?

Don Knotts portrayed Hugh Hefner is an old comedy called The Love God, which is pretty funny. However, to his dying day, Knotts tried to preserve his real life dignity. Hefner, on the other hand, has for decades come across as a decaying, diseased, corrupt old pervert, overdue for his meeting with his pallbearers.

Don Knotts was an intelligent and complicated man. He was a much better actor than he gets credit for, as most people remember only bits of his “Andy Griffith Show” role.
