A Statement from Rush (Rush offers apology to Slut!) ^ | Mar 3, 2012 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 03/03/2012 2:15:11 PM PST by TSgt

For over 20 years, I have illustrated the absurd with absurdity, three hours a day, five days a week. In this instance, I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situation. I did not mean a personal attack on Ms. Fluke.

I think it is absolutely absurd that during these very serious political times, we are discussing personal sexual recreational activities before members of Congress. I personally do not agree that American citizens should pay for these social activities. What happened to personal responsibility and accountability? Where do we draw the line? If this is accepted as the norm, what will follow? Will we be debating if taxpayers should pay for new sneakers for all students that are interested in running to keep fit?In my monologue, I posited that it is not our business whatsoever to know what is going on in anyone's bedroom nor do I think it is a topic that should reach a Presidential level.

My choice of words was not the best, and in the attempt to be humorous, I created a national stir. I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for the insulting word choices.

and if his locals were starting to feel the heat, he had to yield.

Not before asking his locals to sit back and give his audience a chance to be heard.....

I’m partial to the word “strumpet” or “slattern”.


Excellent. I love language/vocabulary. :) I also like "harlot".

The Devil has had a great week.
Andrew Breitbart is dead.
Rush caved to political correctness.

Fluke is a slut. Who else goes before a public hearing and proclaims she needs to have the rest of us pay for her recreational sexual exploits???

Nearly nowhere is the information available that she is a 30 something feminazi activist and not “just a student”.

For God’s sake.....she’s a political activist!

I found it odd that she spouted about some “study” that bemoaned (moan not meant as a pun) the forlorn women at college “going without” The Pill.

So of course when I read she was actually a “women’s studies” (rolling eyes) activist and was THIRTY years old (not 18 or 20)....her citing of this “study” (paid for by US no doubt) then made sense.

She is just another cog in the wheel of socialism.

And yes, she IS a slut.

But worse, she is a socialist.

May she NEVER ever reproduce.

I’ll pay for her to get her tubes tied.


Andrew Breitbart....I MISS YOU. I will fight on, but no one could fight like you did. No one. God rest your beautiful patriotic FEARLESS soul.

After reading this apology, I think Rush got it right. He apologized for the wrong choice of words in describing Ms. Fluke.

Oh, Boo Hoo. She was offended. He offends lots of people. That's been part of his shtick.

Until now.

Let this be a lesson to ALL OF US in the power of left-wing propaganda, and what we are up against.

“He who controls the language, controls the Masses.” -Saul Alinsky. George Orwell made a living writing books about this.

We now live in a world where TELLING THE TRUTH is considered a Hate Crime.

And what were YOU doing while Rush was being attacked from all quarters, for saying something LESS offensive than Bill Maher, or the fat guy on MSNBC, Ed Schultz?

Were YOU organizing online petitions, and email campaigns, like the wackos over at Daily Kos were?

Were you calling and emailing Congress, DEMANDING that your Rep issue a statement on Maher or Schultz’s comments?

Were YOU calling the major networks demanding fair treatment in Rush coverage?

Were YOU calling on advertisers to boycott MSNBC over such obviously faked propaganda like this 23... oops... 30 Year old “Co-ed”?

They beat us, time and time again, because WE DO NOT ORGANIZE, and always expect “Someone else!” to do it for us, then lament the inevitable result, later.

Just like way too many people in America. The money rules all. As Bill Cosby said, in character, “I get mean, when you mess with my green.”

Can’t say I’m surprised. I don’t trust a one of these “news entertainment” types anyway.

The reasons she mentions, in her testimony, include: polycystic ovarian syndrome and endometriosis.

“No he didn't cave.”

I agree. Rush had to make a move here that would allow him to survive AND remain on the air...we need all the conservative radio warriors we can get, warts and all.

The enemy is well funded and well organized. They've been planning for this day for some time. We the People must continue to support all our conservative warriors. Let's stop talking about non-essentials. We must do what we must to remain active and effective in this fight.

To all Freepers: WHO is going to be our George Washington, our U.S Grant, our George Patton, Winston Churchill?

To the politicians in Washington: WHO is willing to stand up and, dammit, speak out and lead us? You have the power, the connections, the knowledge to make things happen, and yet you do nothing...that we know of.

In the meantime, stand firm, lock arms and devise ways to hurt the enemy, to destroy the resistance fighters of WWII, work with like minded people in groups to make this possible. We have no direct leader, but we do have millions of people hungry to win this war, but fearful to lose anything in the process. No pain, no gain. Soldiers of past wars died for our freedom and liberty. We must dig deep down within ourselves for the courage and strength to FIGHT this evil. We ARE Americans...and we don't take no crap from lefty vermin.

To all groups fighting to destroy the left in this's time to join forces. Which group will be the first to make contact, to hash out a plan, to organize with other groups? We the People are the Freedom Fighters, the resistance, and we must organize and FIGHT. An old saying but true, it IS darkest before the dawn. Accept it, and FIGHT!

And now we all know the real reason why there is no discussion about the eligibility issue or the ballot challenges.
I admire the desire to stay on the air and keep listeners informed, but where do people draw the line and say...

"Go ahead and drop me. You're the one that is going to lose customers in the end, not me. My listeners will still be here and other companies will buy your ad time."

Well....let’s put it this way. By issuing that apology, he didn’t give the leftists what they wanted and have been wanting all his firing or resignation.

He outwitted them...yet again, while proving that he had enough class to apologize. Lefties NEVER apologize for their comments.

I think it’s great. They have no leg to stand on now re: screeching for Rush to be off the air.

Go Rush!!!

***Then you don't know the first damn thing about media relations.....****

I don't have any relations with the media and I know damn well what would embarass me and what doesn't. Obiviously the remarks of someone you never met could embarass you, so you don't know the difference.....Sad that you give others the power over you to embarass you or hurt your little feelings.. I give no one that kind of power over how I feel or what I think.

I see something else coming out of this. Rush will somehow turn this into a bigger deal and we’ll all be laughing about this in a week.

It was right for Rush to apologize for his choice of words. Good for him.

He could have clearly made the point without it, and should have done so.

In fact, the very important point he was making was far less effective because of his unfortunate language.

We are left with only the "Great One". I loved Rush for his sense of humor but now he's just another flapping jaw with nothing to back it up.

Rush knew full well what any apology would be construed as,no matter the content.
Now he'll go on Monday morning and try to talk his way out of it.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

Rush could not have signed the Declaration of Independence along with 99.9% of our "nations" leaders.

Mark Levin is the only one I can think of.
