  • "Outrage" Over Limbaugh - What About Left-Wing Misogyny?

    "A firestorm of outrage from women after a crude tirade from Rush Limbaugh," said NBC anchor Brian Williams. This was followed by a reporter who said: "In 2012, the personal is political. What began as a debate over religious freedom has devolved into what some call a 'war on women.'" The "outrage" over Rush Limbaugh's "misogyny" provides the latest examples of the liberal vs. conservative double standard and the selective indignation of the left. Limbaugh criticized the congressional appearance of Sandra Fluke, a Georgetown law student who supported requiring even religiously affiliated institutions to provide "free" contraceptives. "So, Ms. Fluke,...

    National Review ^ | 03/08/2012 | Marc Siegel
    As a practicing internist who prescribes contraception for women on a regular basis, I don’t see the current flame-throwing debate as being about religious principles or promiscuity, and certainly it isn’t about the need to save health-care dollars, as HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has so disingenuously asserted. Instead, in the age of Obamacare, the new insurance mandate is simply about increasing government regulation. But if you regulate insurers, they will fight back. If something is mandated, something else will be cut. Premiums will rise, not fall. Health-care costs will rise, not fall. While I think it is absurd and inflammatory...

    Because it is so predictable, by now we should not be stunned by the stunning hypocrisy of the Left, but it is still tough not to be. One way to get your mind around it is to remember that the whole ideology and political existence of members of the communist Left are based on lies. They not only live on lies, lies are essential for their political survival. Let me explain why I call these people the communist Left or communist Democrats (and this also includes some who are fake Republicans). The very foundation of the Left’s platform is an...

    WASHINGTON, March 7, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - President Obama told reporters Tuesday that he gave personal support to Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown University Law Center student who was vaulted to stardom after advocating for the birth control mandate, because the affair caused him to think of his daughters. “I thought about Malia and Sasha. And one of the things I want them … to be able to do is speak their minds in a civil and thoughtful way, and I don’t want them attacked or called horrible names when they’re being good citizens,” said Obama, as reported by The Hill. “And...

    Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh has been inundated with criticism after calling Sandra Fluke, a Georgetown University student who testified before a House committee about contraception, a “slut” and a “prostitute.” But while Democrats have fiercely condemned the comments, Republicans’ ire has been significantly more muted. ABC’s George Will told me Sunday on “This Week” that GOP leaders have steered clear of harshly denouncing Limbaugh’s comments because “Republican leaders are afraid of Rush Limbaugh.” “[House Speaker John] Boehner comes out and says Rush’s language was inappropriate. Using the salad fork for your entrée, that’s inappropriate. Not this stuff,” Will said....

    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...

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...

In the next slide, she says "After paying for my birth control" … while writing "For a good time call … " on a...

    He has maintained a relatively low profile on the Sandra Fluke story, but Democratic Rep. Elijah E. Cummings played a big role in putting the Georgetown law student in the spotlight and sparking a nationwide conversation over contraceptives. It was Cummings who helped put Fluke on Washington's radar. Aides to Cummings, the ranking Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, discovered Fluke weeks ago as they were scrambling to find a witness to testify about the Obama administration's controversial contraceptive policy. Staff first noticed the third-year law student and former president of the school's Students for Reproductive Justice...

Limbaugh, whose nationally-syndicated show is heard on more than 600 stations, is heard locally on WKBN-AM (570). The radio host has come under fire after calling a George Washington University law student derogatory names after she testified to congressional Democrats in support of national health care policies that would require employers to offer group health insurance that covers birth control. Two radio stations, one in Massachusetts and the other in Hawaii, have already dropped Limbaugh’s show as...

But that was just a prelude to the lavish political gift granted to the White House by Rush Limbaugh, the opponent they have always wanted. The Limbaugh “slut” and “prostitute” rant against Georgetown Law student/contraception advocate Sandra Fluke — which seems to be completely overshadowing boring old Super Tuesday — matters. It matters to Rush (he’s lost seven sponsors and counting), but it probably matters a lot more to Mitt Romney and anyone...

    It's time to fight back. To take on Sleep Mattress, Sleep Number, Legal Zoom, Citrix, Quicken Loans, Carbonite and, now that they've caved, Pro-Flowers. And anybody else who wants to play this disgraceful blacklisting game with their customers. To expose the hypocrisy and double standards. To make it crystal clear that that those who sell out our First Amendment rights to far left radicals are in fact going to be actively perceived as collaborating in a deliberate attack on their customers, real and potential. It's time to stand up for free speech. To draw a line in the sand. And...

    Providing free birth control is fine for 30-year-old law students, but what about us 58-year-old monogamists? Free birth control does nothing for my wife’s health or mine. And remember, it is all about me. And Sandra Fluke’s call too have health insurance cover transgender surgery does nothing for me either. Robert Stacy McCain has the story. What I could use is a gun. Nothing too expensive or flashy. A 38 would do. Same deal as The Pill. No co-payment or deductibles. Each month, I get a 30-day supply of ammo just like Miss Fluke will get with her pills. Naw,...
  • Contraception controversy continues (CNN got bamboozled into thinking she was 24 years old)

    A week ago, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi ridiculed a hearing organized by Republicans for featuring a panel of all male witnesses on the president's contraception policy. On Thursday she's keeping the issue front and center and having her own event featuring a female witness the GOP barred from testifying. Sandra Fluke, a 24-year-old Georgetown University Law student who supports the Obama administration's policy requiring health insurers to offer birth control coverage to women who work at religiously-affiliated organizations, will be the sole witness before Pelosi's all Democratic Policy Committee

    Anyone who believes America's culture wars are behind her should have started out Friday reading The Washington Times. The headlines on the three top stories on page one read: "California judges asked to say if they are gay." "'Tebow Bill' for home-schoolers dies in Virginia Senate panel." "Opt-out on birth control defeated in Senate." The California judges story dealt with the lately passed Judicial Appointments Demographic Inclusion Act, which mandates a survey of all of the state's 1,600 judges -- to find out how many are homosexual. Purpose of the law: "Promote and increase the representation of lesbian, gay, bisexual...

    It’s holy war! Cardinal Timothy Dolan ramped up the battle with the White House today, blasting the government for a controversial new regulation that would require providing free contraceptive services to workers of religious institutions. “Don’t impose your teaching upon us and make us do as a church what we find unconscionable to do!” the freshly minted prince of the church told a roaring crow of 1,000 at Holy Trinity Diocesan HS in Hicksville. In a blistering attack interlaced with humor, Dolan never mentioned President Obama by name — only his policies.

    So tell me again why the pope has to pay for Sandra FlukeÂ’s birth control? Now that Rush Limbaugh has reminded the world heÂ’s a tired old crank, and now that MSNBC has elevated Fluke to sainthood for bravely appearing before a group of fawning congressional Democrats, can we get back to the actual issue? IÂ’d certainly like to, and so would the Catholic church. Democrats? Not so much. Forget about Rush and Sandra for a second, and think about what itÂ’s like to be a practicing Catholic in America under Barack Obama. For years, Catholic institutions were free to...
  • Sandra Fluke, Gender Reassignment and Health Insurance

    Sandra Fluke is being sold by the left as something she’s not. Namely a random co-ed from Georgetown law who found herself mixed up in the latest front of the culture war who was simply looking to make sure needy women had access to birth control. That, of course, is not the case. As many have already uncovered Sandra Fluke she is, in reality, a 30 year old long time liberal activist who enrolled at Georgetown with the express purpose of fighting for the school to pay for students’ birth control. She has been pushing for mandated coverage of contraceptives...
