Congressional Democrats Urge Sandra Fluke to SUE Rush Limbaugh
The Georgetown Law student whom Rush Limbaugh called a "slut" ought to sue him for libel, House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said Sunday.
The House’s second-ranking Democrat said Sandra Fluke, who was swept up in a national furor when Limbaugh called her a “slut” and a “prostitute” because of her stance on contraceptives, needs to explore legal options against the radio host, Hoyer said. A Georgetown Law grad himself, Hoyer called Limbaugh's comment "reprehensible."
"I'd like to see her take him to court," Hoyer said, according to a report in the Montgomery Advertiser. “She is not a public figure and, for that reason, she should be able to sue for slander, libel or whatever else might be involved." See also: Rush on air: Apology was heartfelt.
Fluke was thrust into the national spotlight when she wasn’t allowed to testify in front of a congressional hearing on the Obama administration’s contraception rule. She spoke before an informal Democratic hearing late last month about the need for easier access to birth control, prompting Limbaugh’s remarks.Rush Limbaugh owes NOBODY an apology, least of all a woman who EXPECTS religious institutions to abandon their long-held stances on contraception and FINANCE her choice of (frequent) birth control.
The young, unmarried law student who actually went before Congress to lament her inability to control her sexual urges is typical of the Lefties out there who, in their ignorance, believe THEIR INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR should be defended by the government, even at the expense of the Church.
You DO KNOW that this is the CRUX of the matter, right?
Fluke is nothing but the latest hood ornament for the Liberal campaign to FORCE religious institutions (such as the Jesuit school that Miss Fluke attends) to carry student insurance that covers expensive contraception costs. So, instead of respecting the MORAL BASIS of religious institutions, Miss Fluke and her supporters (such as Nancy Pelosi, a self-described Catholic) are demanding that the federal government intercede and FORCE these institutions to supply contraception (and abortion, too, eventually) against their beliefs.
Yes, Miss Fluke, who is a law student AND a feminist activist for government-funded birth control, has an agenda. She's not in need of $3000 per year in birth control pills and other birth control measures. Miss Fluke was CHOSEN by the Liberal Left in Congress to argue against the Church. If there's any doubt that this is a Liberal publicity stunt, consider that Miss Fluke wasn't even going to speak before Congressional hearings on the matter until Nancy Pelosi convened her OWN, SEPARATE HEARING for Miss Fluke's benefit, OUTSIDE of the official hearings on the subject.
Yes, Miss Fluke's little righteously indignant adventure into the limelight is a PUBLICITY STUNT, organized and perpetrated by the Liberal Left in Congress.
This is EXACTLY like the HOAX perpetrated by the National Organization for Women in the early 1970s, USING Norma McCorvey (under the pseudonym of Jane Roe) as a hood ornament for the campaign for legal (and frequent) abortion, protected and financed by the federal government. Norma McCorvey wasn't even pregnant, had no NEED for an abortion, but she and the National Organization for Women perpetrated a LIE — a LIE that she WAS pregnant and had been denied an abortion — all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
This is how Liberals OPERATE in America, folks. When they can't have their way, they INVENT characters and plaintiffs and issues out of thin air, and FORCE them down America's throat.
The fact is, Miss Fluke doesn't NEED contraceptives, because no man would touch her with a seven-inch pole; and that's because she's a mean-spirited, Liberal Leftist political activist. Which probably means she's a lesbian, as well.
No, I won't apologize for my skilled deduction, and Rush Limbaugh doesn't owe Miss Fluke and her political HACKS in Congress an apology, either.
As for Mr. Limbaugh's sponsors (very few of whom are actually pulling their advertising from his show), I would hasten to remind you that Mr. Limbaugh's SPONSORS didn't make him famous — he did that HIMSELF, because he KNOWS HOW to play these little political games, and he knows what he's doing right now... He's pushing buttons to increase his own visibility. Plain and simple. If there's one thing the Liberal Left should have learned by now, it's that you DON'T go after Rush Limbaugh, because he'll turn it to his own benefit, and he'll be more famous than ever.
