In light of the drummed up controversy and feigned outrage surrounding Rush Limbaugh’s recent comments about Sandra Fluke I thought I would compile a quick list of some things the left has said about women. I know two wrongs don’t make a right, but I do think a little perspective is in order.
Let’s start with Keith Olberman who has been working for Al Gore over at Current TV since his MSNBC show was cancelled. He said Conservative commentator S.E. Cupp should have been aborted by her parents. I suppose this means that being a woman with opposing opinions warrants the death penalty in Keith’s mind. He also called Michelle Malkin a “mashed up bag of meat with lipstick” live on the air. Classy!
Speaking of Michelle Malkin, Rolling Stone writer Matt Taibbi said that when he reads her stuff he imagines her narrating with a “big hairy set of balls in her mouth”. I suppose in Matt Taibbi’s world women are not suppose to think and speak. In Matt’s world it seems oral sex acts are the only purpose for a woman’s mouth.
Ed Schultz called Laura Ingram a “slut”. No word yet if the left will be organizing a boycott. It has been a few months so I guess they are still putting it together.
Angry leftist hero Bill Maher has a history of misogyny. He famously called Sarah Palin a “dumb twat” which we wrote about here. He also called her the C-word and referred to her and Congresswomen Michelle Bachmann as a pair of “boobs”. That is some thoughtful analysis there Bill. No word yet on whether or not Obama is going to return the $1 million Maher has contributed to Obama’s Super PAC as a show of solidarity with women. Maher recently made a joke about Santorum’s wife needing a vibrator. Funny enough I suppose, but what would happen if Rush or Glenn made the same joke about Michelle Obama?
There are plenty of other examples but I think I have made my point. Liberals seem to give these guys a pass so long as they toe the liberal line. This has nothing to do with what Rush said or the intent behind his words. Simply keep these few examples in mind when lefties start attacking the right and claiming there is a “war on women”. Unless they are willing to begin holding their own side to account, this appears as nothing more than a convenient excuse to attack a popular conservative talk show host.
