depends apparently on which side of the cultural divide you’re standing on.
I’m tried to stay out of the Limbaugh/ Fluke kerfuffle. There is really no way to win in this argument. It’s kind of like the joke ” So Mr. Ghandi, when did you stop beating your wife”. While I would agree that domestic violence is not funny, the idea is that one can not answer the question either yes or no without intimating that they have indeed at some time beat their wives. (and Mr. Ghandi, non violent saint that he supposedly was, did in fact beat his wife – culture aside this is not a good thing)
But I digress. Last week conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh referred to a women who appeared before a congressional committee about Obama’s contraceptive mandate as a “slut”. Actually he was asking the question how does one describe or refer or name someone who testifies that she and other college students are so sexually active that the cost of contraceptive is causing them to go broke. According to the dictionary someone who has sex indiscriminately is sexually promiscuous. The thesaurus also suggest some of the following terms, bimbo, broad, doxy, easy make, hooker, moll, nympho, piece of tail, prostitute, tramp, whore. All of these are much worse than anything Limbaugh said.
Then on the other side of the aisle we have Bill Maher. Former actor (B list) now political commentator and talk show host. His mouth is so foul even Larry Flint would have a hard time listening to him for long. Maher hates conservative women with such a wild and fiery passion, it’ almost pathological. The words he has used to describe former Alaska Governor Palin would make anyone with any morals at all blanch. His references to Rep. Michele Bachman while not nearly as septic are still beyond inappropriate. For those of you with a strong stomach this article is very enlightening (caution X rated language, enter at your own risk. I just wanted to show I don’t make this stuff up, I don’t have too). Take note of the Maher quote “I can call Palin a &$^$ because I don’t have sponsors. He commented about the governor, not on his show but at the Winspear Opera House in Dallas. People actually had to pay to hear this kind of licentiousness. Who though is calling for Maher’s head? Who is calling for a boycott on Maher? Oh that’s right it’s only offensive if it’s directed at liberals and their cabal.
Brings to mind a headline I say yesterday when libtalker Little Mikey Malloy who said of tornado victims, just last week,
“They keep being killed, you know, their God, if this is where they want to look at it, keeps smashing them into little grease spots on the pavement in…Alabama and Mississippi and Arkansas and Georgia and…Oklahoma, you know, the Bible Belt. [imitates “preacher” voice] ‘Where they ain’t going to let no goddamn science get in the way – it says in the Bible, blah blah blah blah blah!
So, according to their way of thinking, you know, God, with his omnipotent thumb, reaches down here tonight and so far tonight has smashed about 20 people into a grease spot on Highway 12 or whatever the hell highway they live next to. It’s sad, it’s so sad for this kind of nonsense.”
spewed more of his hateful and disgusting diatribe by claiming,
Now president Obama wants to school Limbaugh on civility. Physician heal thyself. (from the New Testament, Luke actually-it’s no wonder Obama and his ilk don’t know this quote. I doubt any of them have even a passing acquaintance with Luke, they don’t use his name as an profanation. They reserve that for Jesus Christ- his name they remember)
We could go on and on with the “do as I say, not as I do”. This is the same attitude which spawned the revolutions of the 1960’s, the same kind of hypocrisy on the part of those in charge, so go ahead folks, keep it up. Hypocrisy, dishonesty, manipulation, derision and duplicity will eventually come back to bite you. Ask those who lived through the chaos of the 60’s and came out the other side, actual adults instead of the Dorn’s and Ayers of this world. Eventually even a pig get tired of wallowing in the mud. Eventually. If only we have that long.
