I am not really a regular listener of the Rush Limbaugh show, though I like him well enough, so I didn’t hear his remarks about Sandra Fluke. He has apologized for them, though she is not gracious enough to accept his apology, which may indicate something about her character. As I understand the matter, she has enrolled in Georgetown University Law School knowing full well that their health plan did not pay for contraceptives and now she is trying to compel them to. In other words, she wants other people to pay for her lifestyle choices. I don’t know if that makes her a “slut” and Limbaugh probably shouldn’t have used the word, but it does make her a thief and a parasite. I have no intention of apologizing for saying so.
I know that two wrongs never make a right, but I would like to point out that Rush Limbaugh’s ideological opponents have said far more vile things on the air and over the Internet. To the best of my knowledge, Rush has never fantasized about the death of anyone. He has never stated he would like to rape a feminist as some liberals have Ann Coulter. To get a better idea just how vile the Left can be please see The Real Radio Hatemongers. Some of the people who have been loudest in condemning Rush Limbaugh for an offensive but harmless remark have not one word of condemnation for the likes of Ed Schultz or Mike Malloy, or others. Rush is being criticized for a misdemeanor while others get away with felonies.
Rush Limbaugh’s real crime has nothing to do with any remarks he has made. His crime is that he has been an effective voice for Conervatism for 24 years. To the Left that is the unforgivable sin.
