Well according to nutcase Gina Miller I should feel sorry for Rush Limbaugh poor thing the left has declared war on him,Left’s War on Rush is No Fluke as Advertisers Flee. Apparently right wing nutcases should be allowed to make up anything their little hearts desire broadcast it as fact on national TV and accompany it with vile invectives and we should all put up with it because it's "free speech" right. Never mind about those pesky little things like slander and libel.
According to Miller
The people of the radical Left in our nation are engaged in an aggressive, deliberate assault on our freedom of speech, our freedom to call them out and expose the awful truth of their communist agenda. They would love nothing more than to silence us, to stop our ability to shine the light of truth on their evil schemes to rob the American people of our God-given freedoms, our money, and our way of life, which is what communism is about.The nature of her testimony, has Miller even bothered to listen to Ms Fluke's testimony? I think not or she would know that Ms Fluke's chief concern was for those who need oral contraceptives for MEDICAL reasons. As for Rush's apology .............seriously does anyone think Rush is sorry for what he said? Sorry his advertisers are leaving in droves maybe.
As part of this war against us, in the past week we have seen members of the radical, communist Left whip themselves into a vicious frenzy at America’s top conservative talk radio commentator, Rush Limbaugh, and it is no accident—no fluke, you might say. By now you have heard the story. Rush called the feminist activist, Sandra Fluke, a slut and a prostitute for the nature of her testimony before a Democrat mock hearing in Washington (apparently her name is not pronounced as it is spelled, but since it supposedly rhymes with “duck,” I’ll just stay safe here on the radio and pronounce it the way it looks). Rush has since apologized to her for his choice of words.
Sandra Fluke was praising and defending Obama’s illegal, unconstitutional dictate that contraceptive coverage (which includes abortion-inducing drugs) be made mandatory in health care policies, even if an organization has moral and religious objections to it. Rush correctly pointed out the absurdity of the Left’s notion that American citizens should be required to foot the bill for horn-dog college kids’ recreational sex. He is absolutely right in that.There is nothing illegal or unconstitutional about wanting the insurance policy one pays for and that covers prescription medicines to cover all your prescription medication including oral contraceptives. After all women pay the same price as men do for their insurance policies but for years we have been getting cheated by having to pay out of pocket for oral contraceptives while MEN get coverage for Viagra. Miller of course again conveniently ignores the fact that oral contraceptives are used to treat acne, irregular periods, heavy periods which can lead to anemia, the growth of cyst on the ovaries (polycystic ovarian syndrome), and has been shown to prevent ovarian and uterine cancers.
Sandra Fluke is a radical feminist activist who is a sterling example of what our government-run public schools produce today—little communist automatons who are clueless about, or even hostile to, the true freedoms with which this Judeo-Christian foundation nation has richly blessed them. They have been miseducated about the United States and the blessings of liberty and prosperity the capitalist system of our country have provided. They do not even understand the deadly tyranny which they stupidly work to bring about.The only one who appears to be confused is Gina Miller. First off wanting reproductive justice doesn't make one a communist. Wanting ones insurance policy which one pays for to cover women's prescriptions the same way it covers men's prescriptions doesn't make you a communist. Really can't the right come up with anything better then labeling anyone who disagrees with them on any point a communist, oh wait they did if your a woman and you disagree with them then you get labeled a slut and a prostitute. One has to wonder if they even know the definition of communist the way they throw it around. Secondly Ms Miller our nation wasn't founded on Judeo-Christian principals it was founded on the Principals of the Enlightenment. See Five founders who were skeptical of organized Christianity and couldn't be elected today for further clarification. And the only ones who seem to be interested in inflicting tyranny on anyone is the religious right who wish to control women and their bodies.
This whole contraceptive business is a total ruse by the communist Left. It is not about “women’s health.” This is about a full-frontal assault on Americans’ fundamental freedoms of conscience and religion, and it’s about an out-of-control man in the presidency who is illegally dictating things he has no authority to do, in this case, spitting on our God-given, First Amendment-protected freedom of religion. He can’t do that! Nor can he compel private insurance companies to cover products which they do not choose to cover.Yes, it is so unreasonable for women to want to lead happier more productive lives. It is so unreasonable that we want access to medication that treats acne, irregular periods, heavy periods which can lead to anemia, the growth of cyst on the ovaries (polycystic ovarian syndrome), and has been shown to prevent ovarian and uterine cancers. Cancers for which there is no early diagnostic screening and whose prognosis is grim once it is diagnosed.
This is also about a strong-arm campaign to silence powerful voices on the Right, and by extension, all of us. After Rush called Sandra Fluke a slut, the Left went into high gear with a targeting of his show’s advertisers, and several of them immediately bowed to the contrived pressure. Who knows how many paid activists were involved in phoning and e-mailing those companies? I would wager that there were manyI am pleased to be able to announce that Sears and Allstate have also pulled their advertisements. As for who complained to the advertisers I would wager that it was mainly people left and right who were disgusted that anyone would label someone a slut and a prostitute on national TV merely because they disagreed with her views. And for those who took the time to actually listen to Ms Fluke's testimony I imagine there was a fair amount of outrage that an old man could so misconstrue what she said and change the debate from getting needed medication for women with medical conditions to the amount of sex women were supposedly getting and his demand to watch. And it is disingenuous of Ms Miller to claim that the LEFT uses strong-arm tactics.
Let’s talk for a moment about this reaction by the advertisers. Who are these advertisers? As of this writing, the list includes, Sleep Train, Sleep Number, Legal Zoom, Citrix, Quicken Loans, Carbonite and Pro Flowers.
A little background on the issue of outright fabrication is provided by an experience of the Procter and Gamble Company. Somewhere on the extreme fringes of the religious right the rumor was started in the early 1980s that Procter and Gamble, the soap company, was owned by satanists and that all of P&G's profits went to the Church of Satan. Apparently some "Christian" had noticed the venerable P&G trademark, which shows the man in the moon and thirteen stars honoring the thirteen colonies, and in the total absence of any evidence decided that this was a satanic symbol. Soon photocopied sheets detailing the sins of P&G were circulating in every part of the country, and as the story spread, it grew. Ultimately it was claimed that P&G was wholly owned by the satanic church and that its officials had appeared on the Donahue show discussing their links to satanism.The right invented them. But Gina Miller does them one better she turns on the former advertisers that pulled their support from Rush's show.
Finding themselves attacked by religious fanatics, Procter and Gamble fought back. Expecting that any story so absurd and so easily disproved could be quickly stopped, the company established a toll-flee public information number and hired private detectives to find out who was spreading the lies. In many states lawsuits were filed against those circulating literature containing the false stories. Sent to all ministers in affected areas were public relations packets with statements from Billy Graham, Jerry Falwell, Jimmy Draper of the Southern Baptist Convention, and Joseph Bernardin, the Roman Catholic archbishop of Cincinnati, all certifying that the story was a lie. Statements from the Donahue people denied that anyone from P&G had ever even been on that program, or that Donahue had ever even done a show on a related topic.
All to no avail--the religious extremists whom P&G was up against believed and printed whatever they wanted to, regardless of the quality or quantity of the contradictory evidence. Having the truth was nowhere near as important to them as having a target. After trying for years with all the legal, financial, and public relations resources of one of America's largest companies, an incredulous P&G finally had to throw in the towel and get rid of its trademark. They simply could not stop the willful and intentional fabrications of religious extremists.
The point is this: If an entity as innocuous as a soap company can become the target of religious irrationality and be totally unable to stop the subsequent campaign of lies, what chance do the rest of us have.
Meanwhile, we will stand with Rush, and we will drop those cowardly advertisers who dropped him. We will continue to expose the charlatans on the Left who are trying to create a false “war on women” which only exists in their lying sound bites. We know what this is really about; it is about trying to distract from a tyrannical usurpation of our freedom of religion by the power-mad man in the White House, and the despicable attempts to steal our freedom of speech and silence our most beloved voices on talk radio. We must not let them succeed.Ms Miller Freedom of Religion does not give you the right to impose your religious beliefs on others and it doesn't give you the right to deny women the healthcare they deserve. And Freedom of Speech does not give Rush the right to slander a young lady who was speaking before Congress on behalf of the many women who want reproductive justice.
