“He Said; She Said:” Rush Limbaugh Loses Dough for Calling White Student a “Slut.”

Because politics is such soap opera, I thought it’d be a good idea to put a unapologetic liberal and an independent-voting Christian in the same blog post and see what happens. UPDATE: Shuan Brown, a conservative republican, wanted to throw his hat in the ring (see below). So NOW we have a liberal, independent, and a conservative’s point of view. Let the games begin!

Don (liberal):

Great news! Advertisers are either already pulling out or reconsidering their support of right-wing windbag Rush Limbaugh. The final straw appears to have been his calling a third-year Georgetown University Law student, Sandra Fluke, a slut and a whore because she wants insurance coverage for women to afford birth control. And it also looks like the primary force behind this is the use of social media like Facebook, You Tube, and Twitter to mobilize people in protest against this misogynistic nonsense, much like how Glen Beck was forced off the Fox “News” network.

Will this be enough to silence this hateful mouthpiece for the backward-looking “religious” minority in this country? I doubt it very much, because the Internet will still be available to him. But he will be marginalized to a great extent, as less people will be exposed to his rants. And that is a good thing.

Sure, on the Net, he’ll still be able to spew his garbage, and there will still be people who listen to his psuedo-intellectual verbal eruptions. But at least he won’t be able to pollute the airwaves with his filth.

Next up: Take down Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity. And before someone shouts “censorship,” if these scumbags are still able to put their brainless droppings out there, then they are not being censored but marginalized, as all hate speech should be.

Christelyn (Independent):

I’ll admit it. I listen to Rush Limbaugh–not because I like him, but because I continue to be disgusted by the verbal excreta that comes out of his mouth. What’s more, I’m truly frightened by how his listeners take his words as the absolute gospel of republican divinity. Don is right, though. Rush stepped in it big time, and it remains to be seen just what will come of several advertisers pulling out because he’s a flame-thrower. But I can’t help but scratch my head a bit that Ms. Fluke, the grad student has garnered so much support while Michelle Obama, the first lady of the United States and frequent target of racist, misogynistic vitriol from (th)Rush has been allowed with little if any economic consequences.

Just more proof of how protected groups get massive support and black women continue to be thrust under the bus.

To be honest, I am not an across-the-board liberal. I love God (but no a Jesus freak), and am seriously considering the purchase of a Glock 26, also known as “baby glock.”

But I’m really REALLY not liking the focus on all these social issues during a time where unemployment and wages are at the forefront of people’s minds, so why the cuss are republicans allowing these crazies dominate the conversation? Is it because they know they can’t win on the economy now that it’s showing signs of a pulse? This whole thing is a clown show.

Shaun (Conservative):

Well, first I’d like to say Rush did say a shocking thing. He called her a slut, and a whore. Why do you think he did that? Well, I listen to Glenn Beck more than Rush, but as anyone would has ever listened to Rush would know, he always …takes it to the next level. I feel that in this example he was showing how absured her stats were. If she in fact spends $3,000 for 3 years in contraception. What does that cover? Lets just say average cost of a condom is $1. At $1,000 a year, that is 3 condoms a day. Birth Control Pill, your looking at $30-$50 a month. Max cost using the pill is $600 a year. What in the world is she spending this much $ on to keep her from having a baby while having sex? If in fact you are using condoms, even if you double-up….that is still 1.5 times a day, every day. If that was the case, I would say you qualify for the term “Slut”. But of course that is the extreme. She So, as far as the Rush comment goes. He took it to the next level, was it “Politically Correct”? No, but that is what I like about him.Now on to her request. Contraception isn’t a right. Sex isn’t a right as well. This is a choice you take to have sex. The only thing that can come from sex is a baby or a STD. This is all something you need to take into account before you go through with this act. It is your own personal responsiblity to protect yourself. If you don’t want a STD or baby, why are you having sex if you can’t afford a condom or birth control pill? You can always not have sex, that is your choice.

As a result, it is not my job or responsilbity to pay for your fun. I’m not getting anything out of it, so why am I (as a tax payer) held on the hook for your sex acts. Now, I’m a conservitive and a Christian. My girlfriend and I are not having sex until marrage. So, we don’t have to worry about contraception. But once we are married, I do not expect anyone to pay for birth control pills or condoms. It is our choice, we have to bare the cost of it.

At the end of the day, if you can’t afford contraception you shouldn’t be having sex unless you want the result of your action. If you can only afford 6 months worth, make those 6 months count. This whole notion of instant gradification no matter if I can afford it or not is why our country is in the shape it is now.
