I'm joining EMILY's List and taking a stand against Rush Limbaugh and the GOP's ruthless attacks on women's health.
I'm supporting EMILY's List in the fight to elect pro-choice Democratic women who won't let radical conservatives take away women's rights!
Sandra Fluke is the Georgetown Law student who was denied the right to testify in front of the sham, no-women-allowed hearing that Republicans held on access to birth control. When Democrats gave her the chance to testify, she was a very brave, intelligent, and articulate advocate for women.
Rush Limbaugh, in response, launched a ruthless and completely disgusting attack. He said that she wanted to be "paid to have sex." Then this: "What does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? Makes her a prostitute." And then he said that he wants her to post videos of her having sex online so that he can watch.
Attacking women is nothing new for Rush Limbaugh (or Republicans), but this time he has gone too far. Keeping women out of decisions about critical health policy is unacceptable, but assaulting them for standing up for the health care they deserve is truly outrageous. We can't let the Republican crusade against women's rights and access to essential health care continue.
And make no mistake, people like Rush Limbaugh want to punish each and every one of us for the crime of speaking out on our own behalf. When Rush calls Sandra Fluke a slut, he's calling all of us sluts.
Mr. Limbaugh is guilty of 'hate speech' which is not protected by the First Amendment 'Freedom of Speech' clause. Ms. Fluke can sue him and put him into Bankruptcy where he belongs.
"tiggy98," You are so correct that it hurts. Ms. Fluke can take that LOUD MOUTH Limbaugh to court under the hate speech law and clean his clock for him and take him for everything he has! If she took his LOUD MOUTH to court, she could shut him down for good and all!
Come One Ms. Fluke! TAKE THAT OVER INFLATED LOUD MOUTH TO COURT AND CLEAN HIS CLOCK! CLEAN OUT EVERY BANK ACCOUNT HE HAS AND TAKE EVERYTHING HE OWNS!
If I recall correctly, By law, you can take everything he owns except for his cooking and eating implaments, his clothes and his bed! Other then that, EVERYTHING ELSE HE HAS IS UP FOR GRABS! SO GO GET IT!
What a delightful notion that is!!
ITA! I became fed-up with him, years ago, when he made fun of (then-13-yr-old) Chelsea Clinton - he made fun of her looks, her physical appearance. What kind of man does that??? - the same kind of man who calls a woman a "slut," simply because of her standing up for her viewpoints!
I hope he's taken off the air, PERMANENTLY!! He's a big mouth, who's needed to be shut down, off the air, for a long, long time.
