Rush Limbaughs slut comments have advertisers leaving the douchebag.

Rush Limbaugh

“If we’re going to pay for your contraceptives and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something for it. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch.”

It seems Rush Limbaugh is at it again, inflaming the seeds of discontent and imparting what ostensibly amounts to sexist, misogynistic  and vitriolic statements towards women with his latest tongue lashing relating to whether the public and or religious institutions should cover the cost of female contraceptives.

In a move that may well have the 61 year old conservative talk show host regretting he ever took on one Catholic Georgetown University student, 22 year old Sandra Fluke  the talk show host has found himself embroiled in a heated debate as to whether he has alienated and negated women with his stance towards the state paying for female contraceptives. For her part Ms Fluke has adopted the position that the state should help absorb the cost of contraceptives for health reasons.

Given the public fallout as a result of Mr Limbaugh calling Ms Fluke and others like her a slut and a prostitute on his show advertisers one after the other have bowed down to twitter pressure and signaled they will no longer be a sponsor on his talk show, throwing into question how long the controversial talk show host can continue without being forced to capitulate.

Offered the Mr Limbaugh: ‘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. If we’re going to pay for your contraceptives and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something for it. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch.’

Denied to testify at a hearing last month on whether President Barrack Obama’s proposed insurance reform should require insurers to pay for the cost of contraceptives the 3rd year law student  offered that Mr Limbaugh’s reaction was historically consistent with what women have had to be subjected to. She also went on to add that she found Mr Limbaugh’s comments had ‘upset her very deeply as well as outraged her.’

Who also hasn’t been too pleased includes a volley of advertisers who are now re assessing their decision to be affiliated with the outspoken conservative commentator: Sleep Train and Sleep Number, with a third advertiser, ProFlowers now seriously considering how or when to also disassociate themselves with Mr Limbaugh.

‘We don’t condone negative comments directed toward any group,’ a Sleep Train spokesman tweeted. ‘Thanks to all of you for your concern and input.’

Reiterated a Sleep Number spokesman: ‘Recent comments by Rush Limbaugh do not align with our values. So we made decision to immediately suspend all advertising on that program.’

Meanwhile advertiser ProFlowers said it will ‘re-evaluate’ its marketing plan and dating site eHarmony insisted it will look into ‘the matter of “network buys”’.

In part it is thought the advertiser’s positions were adopted by a backlash which saw wide social media condemnation of Mr Limbaugh’s coercive remarks that have had the effect of many corporate sponsors backing away at the slightest appearance that they are associating with what many have termed hostile and misogynistic remarks towards women.

Rather than choose to back down and apologize for his misogynistic points of views the talk show host instead today went on his radio show and in essence doubled down by arguing the following: “She was not allowed to testify because it was not about women at Georgetown who have so much sex they can’t afford birth control.”

He said that her speech at a press conference served to show that “she’s having so much sex she can’t pay for it, and we should.”

With respect to his comment about a sex tape be made public the cavalier Limbaugh offered he was merely “illustrating absurdity by being absurd,” imploring his critics to “lighten up.”

Adding to the furore it was also revealed this week that Mr Limbaugh is now America’s least liked news personality, which forces the question why is the network that hires Rush still standing by this man, unless of course they too tacitly share the same view as Mr Limbaugh that women are sluts and prostitutes?

Whatever happened to assuaging one’s point of view without stooping to degenerative stances with besides the point discussions on a woman’s right to have sex or not. It seems what really has piqued Mr Limbaugh isn’t so much the cost of absorbing female contraceptives but the fact that he can’t stand the idea that deep down women are really promiscuous sluts who are now scheming to take advantage of Rush’s hard earned dollars.

Rush Limbaughs slut comments have advertisers leaving the douchebag.

Ms Fluke was due to testify at a hearing on Capitol Hill last month about Barack Obama's mandate that health insurers provide contraception - but she wasn't allowed to do so .

    This ass of a man , and I use that term lightly , is why we have such terrible words to describe people in the English language .

    One thing that I haven’t seen mentioned is the ludicrousy of the comment “she’s having so much sex”. I’m assuming that the main form of birth control being referred to is the pill. It doesn’t matter if you’re having sex once a month or 200 times a month when you’re on the pill, you still have to take the same number of pills at the same expense.

    Why is this article saying that this is about the debate about publicly/state funded contraception for women? The issue that spurred this debate was whether PRIVATE healthcare insurers should have to cover the costs of contraception for their clients. Which, by the way, saves them money, as covering the costs of a women giving birth is substantially more expensive. Government and tax payers are in no way being asked for women to have sex.

    Also: She’s having so much sex she can’t even afford enough contraception. Does he realize that pills are the same dosage and thus the same cost whether you are having sex once a month or ten times a day??

    She is such a dumb ass. Why would she stand in front of the world and proclaim” I’m screwing so many guys I can’t keep up with the birth control” What a slut.

  • The old master

    I can see where this is going.When Obama wins realection,Rush will become increasingly irratated,.and rightfully so to the point where he will leave the airwaves sometime after Obama’s secound term.He will leave and form a network like Glenn Beck, or a Howard Stearn on cable or online.He will move to a different country and continue his program there.I totaly agree with what Rush is saying, but the socialist agenda in this country is predetermined no mater who wins this or any other electon for that matter. It is so easy to see whats going on but it doesn,t seem to matter.If one comment could be saved as the truth it’s what I am saying here ,but somehow nothing can stop whats happenning.Nobody will stand up for fear of being silince by the desease of political correctness.Everything is rigged and phoney in this country noadays,Its sad to see!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I wish his mother had taken birth control so he wasn’t born.

    Very clearly you’re a troll or just a genius. Or may be you’re a genius troll, i’m not sure.

  • Husmith

    Hee Hee. He gotcha again!

    I don’t think he knows how birth control works. If you asked one of his four wives they will probably tell you that Rush Limbaugh is impotent.

  • lpd

    Her testimony, in essence, had nothing to due with birth control as contraception – she was testifying about a friend who lost an ovary bc she could not afford the form of birth control that prevented cysts forming on it. this is NOT about “sluts” and “sex” its about HEALTH.

    Yes, that’s exactly where it’s going. You’re an idiot. You also seem to have no idea what socialism actually is, like many in this country. Socialism is a system of government in which some services are publicly/government owned and run. There is no purely capitalist system of government on the planet, just as there is no purely communist systems on the planet. All government systems are hodgepodge of privately owned programs and publicly owned programs. In this sense, I would argue that almost all governments in the world, including the US, are socialist, in that some things are privately run and others are publicly run. You can’t point to any period in our history over the last 100 years where this was not so. Medicare is a socialist program. Social security is a socialist program. I would argue that No Child Left Behind functions like a socialist program, in the sense that the gov is pushing a standard of education. I would point out also that NCLB was passed under the Bush administration, along with the Patriot Act, which allows for some pretty incredible infringements on personal liberties.

    My point? If you’re going to point the finger at Obama, you’ll have to also point the finger at pretty much every US president over the last 100 years. But hey, maybe someday you’ll get your wish: The gov won’t pay for your health care, your child’s education, your unemployment benefits, and when you retire, they’ll give you nothing. Sounds great, right?

    Rush Limbaugh’s face and personality should have been enough birth control for his wives…

  • guestc4

    I used to listen to Rush…16 years ago. He increasingly became a propagandist a neo-Con tool and got too used to the 1% life. Example, he needed his chauffer to tell him what some pro-abortion message on a license plate. Then he got caught having hired an illegal alien made to illegally get multiple subscriptions for pain pills. However hypocritical he’s become he didn’t care anymore as his media power brainwashed a whole generation into helping clueless Bush push our country to the economic brink. This is just the beginning of what’s coming to Rush as he loses his advertisers and he loses control of himself. “feme-nazis” I will vote Republican or Ron Paul this season.

    Ms. Fluke looks much older than 23, more like 30 I’d guess. Those hands look far too rough to be on a 23 year old student.
