This is what I will imagine from now on with Rush and those embracing Bill O’s defense of El Rushbo.
This whole “debate” is painfully exhausting. And let me be clear, this is not a debate. This is a war against anyone who identifies as female. Period.
It crushes me to watch those of us who use contraception for any reason denigrated as sluts, whores, prostitutes, etc. I spoke with one woman who told me she broke down in tears at work listening to Rush Limbaugh lambaste Sandra Fluke for a third day. She was embarrassed. I don’t think she should be ashamed at all.
I’m tired. I’m frustrated. I’m enraged. But until stone-age motherfuckers like Limbaugh and O’Reilly recognize why THIS IS NOT OK, I will keep fighting. Also, I know they never will recognize it, so I will never, ever stop. You want a war, we will give you a war.
An injury to one is an injury to all.
You did not apologize, Rush. Nor do you get it.
I’ve listened to your shit since I was young. In 15 minutes, it will be my 28th birthday. You have been on air spewing your hate since I was four. Bless your little Viagra-strained heart and the First Amendment, no?
Your verbal brutalization of Sandra Fluke, and your minions joining you… THAT was a step too far.
As I wrote in my “Wyoming Monologues” piece, “Going Hungry”:
I want to climb to the tallest building I can find and take the loudest bullhorn in existence, and read these comments to a crowd of women important to these men. Their grandmothers, sisters, mothers, wives, girlfriends, kindergarten teachers – I want them all to know what these men think is a legitimate debate tactic. I want these women to know that if they step out of line, they too could be labeled cunts, bitches, dykes, fat ugly cows. I want those women to turn to these men and shame them for their misogyny. I want them to feel pain, not sharp, but an aching hollowness – much like a hungry stomach.
I want to scream as loud as I have to for every single one of the inhabitants of the gutter to hear me: "This is a coup d’état, motherfuckers!"
Logically, I cannot do this, but I can continue to speak. We can continue to speak. And yes, I am angry, but we have every right to be angry when just one of us is subject to cruelty…
So to you hoping that just the right combination of slurs will unlock such devastation in a woman’s being that you no longer have to tell her to shut the fuck up: I want you to listen.
Your opinions do not define and delegitimize us women.
In order to extinguish our humanity, you disregard your own.
"This is a coup d’état, motherfuckers!"
Rush Limbaugh, on law student Sandra Fluke, who was denied the ability to testify before the all-male panel considering contraceptive coverage.
As ThinkProgress states: “While it’s probably not even worth engaging with Limbaugh on the facts, Fluke’s testimony was about a friend who is a lesbian and needed birth control for non-sexual medical reasons, so he’s only wrong about three times over, and offensive many more times over than that.”
Need we discuss Limbaugh getting caught with Viagra that wasn’t even his? No? How about pointing out that with birth control, it doesn’t matter how much sex you have — taking one pill is enough to prevent pregnancy?
Or how about he’s a misogynistic pig? Is that ok?
It’s as terrible as you think:
Even in the ultrapolarized atmosphere of Capitol Hill, it should be possible to secure broad bipartisan agreement on reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act, the 1994 law at the center of the nation’s efforts to combat domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking. The law’s renewal has strong backing from law enforcement and groups that work with victims, and earlier reauthorizations of the law, in 2000 and 2005, passed Congress with strong support from both sides of the aisle.
Yet not a single Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee voted in favor last week when the committee approved a well-crafted reauthorization bill introduced by its chairman, Senator Patrick Leahy, and Senator Michael Crapo, a Republican of Idaho, who is not on the committee.
The bill includes smart improvements aimed, for example, at encouraging effective enforcement of protective orders and reducing the national backlog of untested rape kits. The Republican opposition seems driven largely by an antigay, anti-immigrant agenda. The main sticking points seemed to be language in the bill to ensure that victims are not denied services because they are gay or transgender and a provision that would modestly expand the availability of special visas for undocumented immigrants who are victims of domestic violence — a necessary step to encourage those victims to come forward.
You cannot tell me this isn’t rooted in misogyny, bigotry, and racism. You fucking can’t. Domestic violence is NOT a political football…
A bill to provide for prosecution of those who perpetrate domestic violence and to give victims protection - the sticking point is language about transgender people and undocumented immigrants?! REALLY?!
I’d say this summarizes Rick Santorum’s position on abortion.
In case you missed it, here’s his making lemonade out of lemons approach to reproductive rights:
"You can make the argument that if she doesn’t have this baby, if she kills her child, that that, too, could ruin her life. And this is not an easy choice. I understand that. As horrible as the way that that son or daughter was created, it still is her child. And whether she has that child or doesn’t, it will always be her child. And she will always know that. And so to embrace her and to love her and to support her and get her through this very difficult time, I’ve always, you know, I believe and I think the right approach is to accept this horribly created — in the sense of rape — but nevertheless a gift in a very broken way, the gift of human life, and accept what God has given to you. As you know, we have to, in lots of different aspects of our life. We have horrible things happen. I can’t think of anything more horrible. But, nevertheless, we have to make the best out of a bad situation." - Rick Santorum to Piers Morgan
I can actually think of something more horrible, Rick. Being condemned to bear your rapist’s child because you have no choice to the contrary. Being violated against your will and forced to give birth against your will because a bunch of Judeo-Christian concern trolls like yourself took away the right to choose otherwise.
That seems pretty terrible to me.
Rick Perry, speaking in Iowa on teachers, making money, and why the Occupy Wall Street folks just don’t have enough “passion.”
*Sigh* Fucking hell.
Actually, you know what? That’s not true. I don’t hate the people freezing their asses off occupying Wall Street while Rick Perry sits in his ill-fitting suit of smug and remarks that money is overrated. It’s not about people having too much money. It’s about a significant amount of people not having any money in order to enrich a very small amount of those who already do.
Your pithy little admonishments to those at Occupy Wall Street to find their passion is completely and one hundred percent intellectually disingenuous. Many of those folks followed their passions, got a degree, and can’t find a goddamn job. They’re saddled with tens of thousands of dollars worth of debt after being told by snide little bastards like yourself to pursue that piece of paper representing their passion and employment prospects. My passion doesn’t pay the rent, and the utility companies don’t take passion as currency.
Money is only irrelevant when you make a living wage and aren’t one missed paycheck away from homelessness.
Fuck you with all the fucks I have left to give today.
That about sums it up.
July of 2012, grad students will have loans restricted and the Pell Grant program is looking at cuts.
FUCK. YOU. ALL.
Glenn Beck, demonstrating on his radio show today that no matter how heinously low he sinks, he can always grab a shovel and start digging.
Never mind his 9/12 group ran political camps for kids, right? It’s only Hitler Youth-ish when the left does it. The 9/12 group youth camps were described as a place where 8-12 year-old kids could have fun while “learning the principles of liberty, free markets, and limited government.” Plus, they’ll get to learn the “values of personal responsibility, faith, courage, hard work, reverence and thrift.”
Oh, and the whole Nazi reference is particularly tacky, considering Norway was actually, y’know, invaded by real Nazis during WWII.
Stay classy, Glenn.
