Are Women Who Choose to Use Birth Control – Sluts? and are All of Us – Pimps??

Well, that is what Rush Limbaugh believes. He said it on his program which we are told reaching fifteen million viewers, who apparently approve of this kind of thing. Mr. Limbaugh’s quote is just below the article title.

Bob Cesca: The He-Man Woman Haters Club

“What does it say about the college coed Susan [sic] Fluke, who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex? What does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She’s having so much sex she can’t afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex. What does that make us? We’re the pimps.”

It’s hard to talk about this. It’s the kind of talk you expect from a semi-drunk old geezer who has been telling dirty jokes to his buddies and emboldened by alcoholic wisdom decides to hold forth on social issues. That’s hard to reply to.

A gentleman would never say such a thing. A man of honor would immediately apologize. A learned man, a scholar would find such a statement incomprehensible.

This is political discourse in the year 2012. If you say that the tax code is biased in favor of the richest Americans, you are advocating class warfare similar to the French Revolution and will eventually pull the guillotine out of retirement. If you are a Methodist, or a Lutheran or any of the other mainline churches (like me), according to one presidential candidate, you do not practice Christianity, you are not Christians and you are in league with satan himself. If you consider yourself a member of a shrinking middle class, don’t worry you don’t really exist.

That fifteen million Americans find Rush Limbaugh a guide for their behavior and a pattern for their judgment is a failure of dialogue, of citizenship and simple human decency.

We can do better.

Here’s a little bit more of Limbaugh. I’d skip it if I was you. It’s painful.

  1. It is very painful and to every single American who believes in America’s freedom; people like Rush and Rick Santorum and the rest of the republican morons have to vote this year like their life depended on it. We must strive always for the best in our elected officials short of not having any government federal, state or city, since we now have this – we must ensure that these assholes work for WE…THE FREAKING PEOPLE!
