Easy! Just go after Rush Limbaugh for being a sexist, misogynist pig, which he is, and hit him hard. Like they always say in Corporate America,
“Hit em in the wallet and their hearts and minds will follow”.
Perfect. I joined in on this campaign. I tweeted Rush sponsors. I harassed Proflowers and other holdouts like Carbonite. I believed he had it coming and I still believe it. But not because he’s a Right Wing Whacko. I joined because he’s a sexist pig who can’t wait to hold women down — and I’m sick of it.
The mission was accomplished. Somewhere around 30 sponsors ditched him. It was actually comforting to this woman to see Rush Limbaugh finally experience some badly needed humility and understanding about how it feels to be harassed, denigrated and hammered, two things he is known for doing to others. He got to walk a mile in those shoes and then some. I was satisfied that Rush was going to be thinking twice from now on when he considers humiliating, disparaging, degrading, and hobbling women.
I may have been satisfied, but the Party didn’t stop there. Nope. That’s how they roll. As a matter of fact, that’s how both these parties roll as soon as they get the chance. Why not turn this into a political battle and forget the original principle and intent, the results of which will likely cause Rush Limbaugh to walk with his two smelly feet in one shoe the next time he thinks about degrading women? Why not just remove that Slanted Spinner from the Other Side from the airwaves so that all we get to listen to is the Slanted Spinner From Our Side? There is no question about it: The original cause made its point, and now it has been appropriated for another long-standing and not very democratic agenda.
This is wrong on so many levels. It’s not only wrong but it is the Antithesis of Democracy and I will NOT play. Today Rush Limbaugh; Tomorrow you or me. I want my country free. I do not want a steady barrage of only half the propaganda in America! Why, I want ALL of the propaganda! Because, who are we kidding. that’s all we get day and night on the airwaves and heavy hitting blogs: Party Propaganda. If I am going to be exposed to all this bad taste and childish sniping, I want to see it all, so I can shake my head at both sides. This is America. This is a Democratic Republic. This is not Pravda. At least not yet. I don’t like Rush Limbaugh. If I don’t like him, I don’t have to listen to him. Isn’t America great that way?
….Which begs the question at this point: Does anybody REALLY give a rat’s ass about stopping sexism and misogyny or is this just another effort to control the airwaves and force a “uniform message”? Well, I am here to tell what’s left of my party that this is exactly what this looks like.
Bill Maher is the elephant in the room here.
Everybody sees him. He is getting larger by the minute. To pretend he’s not in the room is simply ludicrous. My party is looking silly. Again. Bill Maher is the chink in the routine that exposes the continuation of the “FlushRush” movement long after it achieved its goal as looking pretty damned partisan. petty and foolish right now.
Here’s is Maher’s tweet.
Hate to defend #RushLimbaugh but he apologized, liberals looking bad not accepting. Also hate intimidation by sponsor pullout
Like I said, I can’t help but imagine a good reason why Bill Maher would come to Rush’s defense, can you? If not, why?
I would guess it wasn’t because Bill Maher is the epitome of Republican forgiveness, let me tell you. Every women who has ever watched condescending Bill Maher has watched him degrade women. Just because he degrades women I don’t particularly like at all, doesn’t mean it’s okay for him to degrade them. When you degrade one woman, you degrade them all. What part of this do partisan women in both parties not understand? When you laugh at this shit, you are condoning it. Then you wonder how this happened when Your Turn Comes. Shit rolls downhill, my “fellow”** women. Believe it.
Nobody should ever defend or make excuses for Party Darling Rush Limbaugh’s sexism and misogyny, and nobody should ever defend or make excuses for Party Darling Bill Maher for the same crap either. There is no excuse. He’s been getting away with insulting, trivializing, sexualizing and disparaging women for years — and he is really disgustingly good at it. It is not funny and he should not be given a Free Pass. He should be experiencing the same punishments Rush Limbaugh received this week. And you know what? I’ll bet he knows it. I’ll bet he looked at what was going on with Rush and thought, Whoa! I would hate to have that shit happen to me!!!
Honestly, I don’t even know if I can write what I am going to say next on a G-rated blog about The Elephant In The Room. It is that sickening and perverse. If I am thinking twice about writing down some of the things Bill Maher has said, then WHY is everyone pretending Bill Maher isn’t the elephant in this room? He is the quintessential filthy pig, the ultimate condescending misogynist. He is simply wincingly awful and everybody knows it. This man is not just a “Comedian”. That is raw bullsh!t and Spin. He is a political commenter and he is an integral tool of the Democratic party, and EVERYBODY knows it. The Democratic party is very important to Bill Maher and the he Reviles Republicans — and he shows it daily on his forum. This is not just a comedian. This is a guy who uses “comedian” to skewer opponents. And women, because if ever a guy hated women, it’s Bill Maher. He fits in perfectly among the Closet sexist pigs in my party, who aren’t very well closeted, but they think they are. I won’t even get into that million dollar donation. He’s no less an operative than Rush Limbaugh. So, come on folks, let’s cut the bullsh!t.
Any man who uses the words “Cunt,” “Twat,” and “A Big, Hairy Set of Balls In Her Mouth” should have been chased into the woods with figurative torches and pitchforks long ago. Why are we not admitting this? How stupid do we look for railroading Rush Limbaugh for Slut talk while pretending Bill Maher isn’t what he is? Why are we teaching our children that sexism and misogyny are bad unless someone we like suffers from the problem? This is not humor. This is deliberate degradation. There is no excuse and there is no difference between Bill Maher and any other degrading sexist pig.
Let me say this. Rush Limbaugh has every right to be on the air. So does Bill Maher. What we should be focusing on is the fact that neither of them should be allowed to get away with the hobbling of women and their disgusting behaviors toward women.
And we wonder why women can’t even garner 20% of the leadership in DC? You cannot eradicate sexism and misogyny by giving out Free Passes to pigs. And that is EXACTLY what is going on right now. This is the kind of excused shit that enables an OWS group to have the revolting audacity to tell women not to hurt the cause by reporting rapes–and use a woman to announce it! Do you not see where this kind of disrespect goes and how far downhill it rolls?
Cringe. Every woman in America should be cringing right this very moment over guys like Rush and Bill. Yes, you should be cringing, my “fellow”** women. And you shouldn’t even be thinking of which party you are in when you do it.
I do wish the Democratic party would Please Stop It. They have no idea how foolish they really look right now. Either do it right, or don’t pretend you are doing this because you give a shit about Sexism and Misogyny–or women. Recognize the Wincingly Awful Elephant in the Room and Give him his Due or stop pretending and using women as your excuse to ride herd on the ‘other side’ — and please just cut the crap. All or None. Seriously.
Can anybody see the irony in Ed Schultz calling for Rush to be removed from the airwaves for using the sexist word, “Slut”?….and getting away with it himself? Trying to rationalize one pig in favor of another pig is a great way to keep sexism and misogyny going on for eternity. Maybe that’s the real goal, hey? My Sexist Pig is Better Than Your Sexist Pig. There ARE no excuses! Nobody and I mean NOBODY should EVER get a Free Pass!
Gawd. How embarrassing.
….And isn’t it interesting that there is no corresponding word for “Fellowship” among women?
Oh and here is a little history of sexist pigs who “Got away with it” because it suited a Party. And once again, we wonder why a gender that can claim 70% of the valedictorians last year can’t even claim 20% of Congress—and Forget the White House!…Because it isn’t all about using dirty words. It’s about the condescending, bullying BULLSHIT we are served up Day and Night. If you can’t see that, regardless of your silly party, then I don’t know what to tell you other than women are going NOWHERE in America if we don’t put a stop to this shit. If you thought any of this was entertainment, then your turn hasn’t come. Yet.
The most admired woman in the WORLD, 16 years running–delivered to you on a plate by The Party Of Women. America’s political parties and media are pathetically obvious. Why would any woman give any one of them a Free Pass?:
