Here there be monsters
As I wrote about yesterday, Rush Limbaugh has finally lost it and gone completely off the rails. He has suggested that women that use contraceptives paid for by their insurance companies post videos of themselves having sex so that all of us can watch.
But you know what? That was actually only part it. Here are some excerpts from the transcript so that you can see what I mean. I won’t link to it so you don’t have to worry about accidentally clicking through to his site.
Before we get started, let’s be very clear what this odious pig is doing: he’s demonizing women that want access to contraception as slutty whores. Everything he says in these quotes emphasizes that college-aged women that are in favor of insurance companies covering contraception are shameless, sex-crazed, sluts; whores who think of nothing but how they can get more sex. At one point, he actually says this about Sandra Fluke, the woman who was denied the ability to speak in the “No Girls Allowed Congressional hearing: “She’s having so much sex it’s amazing she can still walk, but she made it up there” [to testify at Minority Leader Pelosi's hearing].
He actually said that.
Buckle up. Here we go.
The reaction that they [the left] are having to what I said yesterday about Susan Fluke — or Sandra Fluke, whatever her name is — the Georgetown student who 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. I said, “Well, what would you call someone who wants us to pay for her to have sex? What would you call that woman? You’d call ‘em a slut, a prostitute or whatever.”
The headline: “Sex-Crazed Co-Eds Going Broke Buying Birth Control, Student Tells Pelosi Hearing Touting Freebie Mandate — A Georgetown co-ed told Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s hearing that the women in her law school program are having so much sex that they’re going broke, so you and I should pay for their birth control.” Cybercast News Service. So what would you call that? So I called it what it is. And, bam, boy, you nail these people with the truth! So I’m offering a compromise today. I will buy all of the women at Georgetown University as much aspirin to put between their knees as they want. Well, here’s the thing about that. Where are all these guys?
Up on Capitol Hill at Pelosi’s hearing, thousands of dollars a year. But they want it free. They want the contraception free. I know condoms are free, if you know where to go get ‘em. I don’t know where to go get ‘em free but Snerdley assures me that they’re free. (interruption) There is an iPhone AP to find free condoms? For New York City. Well, cool, okay, there you go. So we’re not even talking $953 with free shipping. Keep that in mind while we’re listening to this thousands and thousands of dollars in taxpayer dollars to satisfy the sexual habits of female law students at Georgetown.
How did we become so heartless? Require each other to pay for the contraceptives of the women law students at Georgetown? Sandra Fluke reported to Pelosi: “It costs a female student $3,000 to have protected sex over the course of her three-year stint in law school, according to her calculations. ‘Without insurance coverage, contraception, as you know, can cost a woman over $3,000 during law school,’ Fluke told the hearing. … That’s a thousand dollars a year of sex — and, she wants us to pay for it.” Now, what does that make her? She wants us to buy her sex. She wants us to pay for her sex, and she went to a congressional committee to close the sale.
At $1 a condom, if she shops at CVS pharmacy’s website, that $3,000 would buy her 3,000 condoms or a thousand of them a year. We’ve done all kinds of research on this. And what about these deadbeat boyfriends or random hookups that these babes are encountering here, having sex with nearly three times a day? While in law school.
If Fluke is gonna ask the government to force anybody to foot the bill for her friends’ birth control, shouldn’t it be these guys? Who pays for the abortions? Oops! We already know that, too. So that’s where this all started, that story. That’s where it all started. A woman who goes to law school at Georgetown goes to a congressional hearing where Pelosi is (crying), “I’m going broke having sex! I need… I need the government to provide me condoms and contraception. It’s not fair.” Okay, so this is a law student at a congressional committee asking for us … to … pay … for … the … things … that … make … it … possible … for … her … to … have … sex.
Therefore we are paying her to have sex.
Therefore we are paying her for having sex.
We are getting screwed even though we don’t meet her personally!
Folks, if you ask ‘em, if you ask ‘em, the Washington, D.C. Department of Health will send you free condoms and and lube! The D.C. Department, free condoms and lube if you just ask ‘em for it.
So, Ms. 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. And I’ll tell you what it is. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch.
Who paid for the sex and the contraception in the backseat of the car way back when? So it’s embarrassing to go to the drugstore and not be able to pay and find out that the birth control pills are not covered by insurance. You see embarrassment etched all over the faces. Folks, for all the hilarity that’s contained in what’s going on here… Here’s a woman exercising no self-control. The fact that she wants to have repeated, never-ending, as often as she wants it sex — given. No question about that. Of course, it’s normal.
You know, folks, millions of women enjoy sex in the back of a car. You have some women that can’t afford a car. What are we to do? What is our solution to women who prefer sex in the backseat of a car but can’t afford a car? I’ve run some numbers here. Did you notice in that sound bite Sheila Jackson Lee or Maria Cantwell or one of them talked about the strength that Sandra Fluke had to go before Congress, which is amazing. She’s having so much sex it’s amazing she can still walk, but she made it up there. It takes a lot of courage to ask for something free, folks. Takes a lot of strength to ask for freebies, doesn’t it? I’m being facetious. You know what the solution is here, why doesn’t Georgetown lower their tuition?
CALLER: Hi, Rush. I think they ought to add the cost of the birth control to their student loan and then they can be responsible and pay it off.
RUSH: I agree. This is a matter of personal choice. It’s an elective activity, or is it? Maybe they’re sex addicts. I mean this is the kind of stuff, we’re talking sex addict frequency here…
I am reprinting part of what I wrote yesterday because we MUST get Rush Limbaugh off Michigan’s largest AM radio station, WJR. His poison must not be allowed to pollute our airwaves or our national discourse any longer. Donald Imus was fired for less.
The Detroit radio station WJR, the most powerful AM radio station in the region, runs Limbaugh’s radio show from noon to 3:00 p.m. every day. Is this bedrock radio station for the Midwest going to continue to allow this odious talk on their station every single day?
I have just sent the following message to WJR using this link. I encourage you to send one of your own.
Yesterday, Rush Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke, a lesbian, a “slut” for advocating for contraceptive coverage by health insurance. Today he said this:
“Folks, if you ask ‘em, if you ask ‘em, the Washington, D.C. Department of Health will send you free condoms and and lube! The D.C. Department, free condoms and lube if you just ask ‘em for it.
So, Ms. 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 it. And I’ll tell you what it is. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch.”
I call upon you and your station to loudly repudiate this odious talk and to fire Rush Limbaugh by taking him off your station.
You represent the state of Michigan in so many ways and by continuing to air Rush Limbaugh’s brand of hate, you shame our fine state. Please do the right thing and end your relationship with him.
