You know how the Palace was all classy and stuff earlier today about the death of conservative political activist Andrew Breitbart? Well, just FYI, we won’t be nearly so kind to human shitstain Rush Limbaugh on that happy day when his carcass ceases heaving itself around expelling thick plumes of noxious gasses.
Limbaugh Calls Student Denied Spot At
Contraception Hearing A ‘Slut’
Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown student whom House Republicans wouldn’t let testify at a contraception hearing last week, a “slut” and a “prostitute” today, because, Limbaugh argued, she’s having “so much sex” she needs other people to pay for it:
LIMBAUGH: What does it say about the college co-ed Susan Fluke [sic] who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex. What does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She’s having so much sex she can’t afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex.
Limbaugh Doubles Down On Sexist Attack Against Sandra Fluke,
Demands She Post Sex Tapes Online
Yesterday, as ThinkProgress noted, conservative shock jock and strident women-basher Rush Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown student who House Republicans wouldn’t let testify at a contraception hearing last week, a “slut” and a prostitute. “She’s having so much sex she can’t afford the contraception,” Limbaugh said.
The remarks drew widespread condemnation, with House Democratic Leader Nancy Polosi (D-CA), demanding that “Republican leaders in the House to condemn these vicious attacks on Ms. Fluke.”
But on his radio show today, Limbaugh showed no remorse and instead reveled in the attention. Referring to Fluke, Limbaugh demanded that women post sex tapes online if they use insurance-covered birth control:
LIMBAUGH: So Miss Fluke, and the rest of you Feminazis, here’s the deal. If we are going to pay for your contraceptives, and thus pay for you to have sex. We want something for it. We want you post the videos online so we can all watch.
Limbaugh also said he found the outrage over his remarks “absolutely hilarious.” He again completely misrepresented Fluke’s testimony, saying, she “went before a Congressional committee and said she’s having so much sex she’s going broke buying contraceptives and wants us to buy them.” In fact, Fluke testimony was about a friend — who is gay — and needed contraception for medical reasons, but was denied coverage by Georgetown, a Catholic university.
He went on to say, “I will buy all of the women at Georgetown University as much Aspirin to put between their knees as they want” — a reference to Rick Santorum-backer Foster Friess’ home-spun idea of birth control.
You know, part of me wishes that I could be more like Melissa McEwan, who upon hearing of Breitbart’s death today posted:
Whoa. At age 43, Andrew Breitbart reportedly died of natural causes last night. My condolences to his family, friends, and colleagues.
For obvious reasons, namely our polar-opposite politics and wildly divergent set of professional ethics, I was not a fan of Breitbart, and I cannot say that I felt his contributions to the national dialogue were constructive or positive in any way. He hurt people, shamelessly and wantonly, for political gain.
I didn’t know the man personally, and what I knew of him I did not like.
But I am not glad he’s dead. I would have preferred instead that he’d lived long enough to change his mind.
But the Andrew Breitbarts of the world do not change their minds. Ever. Except in the sense of “I used to be against abortion. Now, though, I’m also against birth control. And if by chance some douchebag comes up with some other awesome way I can really stick it to the wimminz, I’ll ‘change’ my mind yet again.”
The simple fact is that the world will be a considerably better place the minute Rush Limbaugh is dead, and I’ve come to the conclusion that it hardly makes me a terrible person for pointing this out. I will offer no condolences to his family, friends or colleagues — none of whom could apparently be arsed to speak out against his insidious, vicious and vile rhetoric. Their loss will be humanity’s gain, and I will be so very, very glad that he is dead.
Yep, when Rush Limbaugh is dead, I plan to fuck my lover in jubilant, joyous celebration. Too bad I can’t bill his estate for the condoms.
