I really thought Sunday’s post regarding Rush’s apology would be the last (and only) post on the topic, as, really this whole thing is cheap theater designed to deflect from Obama’s horrible record. I’m surprised Team Obama didn’t wait till closer to the actual election to trot the issue out. And, let’s face it, Rush stepped in it with both feet. But, now we’re getting stories such as this diary at the Daily Kos: I’ve spent the past 2 days trying to convince my 16 y/o she is not a “slut”
I can hardly type, can hardly put this into words! I have been writing and rewriting this because if I don’t break down in tears, I get so angry that I can’t think straight! I know that so much has already been written about this whole issue, but I am writing this diary from a very personal point of view; forgive me if I find no humor in any of this, excuse me if I take no part in celebrating the loss of sponsorship for that pig’s radio program. You see, my 16 year old daughter came home from school on Friday in tears and has been in a state of utter despair since. She was told, in no uncertain terms, that she is a slut, a prostitute, a horny piece of trash that is out to sleep with every guy in school! The horrid little monsters who started harassing my daughter had the audacity to tell her their mothers were the ones who labeled her with these despicable opinions- they were just “telling it like it is, you know, like that guy on the radio! The one who isn’t afraid to tell the truth!” Who does this?! How does Rush Limbaugh or anyone else have the right to do this, to say these things about anyone?
Look, if true, I feel for beantown mom, but, let’s face it, children are cruel. It matters little if her snowflake is taking birth control pills for menorrhagia and secondary dysmenorrhea, kids are cruel. And, really, the timing of the post is rather coincidental, eh? Especially since it revolves around “that pig”, Rush Limbaugh.
(Final Update) 4. Someone just noted that this diary is being questioned as “too coincidental”. I have no response to this. I won’t try to dignify this with a response.
Interesting. Let’s jump to update #2
Update #2 I have been asked to update my post with this link to the petition to remove Rush Limbaugh from the Armed Forces Radio Network. Please, if you haven’t done so, go sign this petition! We need to fight back- we need this idiot removed from the airways.
So, censorship. Shutting down and shutting up voices the Left doesn’t like. Said petition was created on March 4th, 2012.
Over at the ever unhinged Balloon Juice, Dennis G calls Rush “anti-American”, and
Every bully goes too far one day. For Joe McCarthy it was the Army-McCarthy Hearings. For Bobby Knight it was choking a player.. Perhaps—if our Nation is lucky—this is the end of the line for Rush Limbaugh. He knows he stepped in it. You can hear the fear in his voice. There is no justification for his bullshit any longer and anybody who defends him is a coward, a fool or both.
Interesting. When it’s a show we do not like, we’re told to “change the channel.”
This is the consequence of the hate being peddled by Rush Limbaugh and his ilk. It’s not just “entertainment” or “humor” as he and his defenders like to claim. The bullying these folks do on the airwaves trickles down to bullying in the workplace and in the schoolyard. It has very real, very negative consequences to people’s lives–including to these “mean girls” bullies themselves, who are at significantly higher risk of teen pregnancy and doomed shotgun weddings due to a learned prejudice against basic birth control.
That’s weird, I though bullying was caused by globull warming, er, climate change.
Rush Limbaugh thinks a flimsy apology on his website is enough to make women forget about his shameful attacks and insults. We must not let him get away with making such statements on the air.
But, hey, it’s cool when Liberals make disparaging remarks about Conservative women, eh?
The Last Tradition makes a good point
In a society that glories girls behaving badly like Paris Hilton and Lindsey Lohan, all of a sudden “slutty behavior” is an issue for this mother of this 16 year old? Let’s put all the blame on Rush and not the genuine culprits that attend parties without wearing their panties.
Liberals aren’t going to let this tempest in a tea pot go, it’s an easy issue, much easier than defending the failure that is Obama. When will liberals demand that Obama apologize for referring to Tea Party members as “tea baggers,” an obnoxious, disparaging, sexually charged reference? How does
Rush Limbaugh Barack H. Obama or anyone else have the right to do this, to say these things about anyone?
