Rush Has Company

There was a great article by Kirsten Powers published Sunday.

For those who do not know Ms Powers, she is a columnist, former member of Bill Clinton's staff, and Fox News contributer.

I see her as a fairly frequent guest on Special Report with Bret Baier. I like her although I don't very often agree with her because of her views. Bottom line? She's a consistent, strong willed liberal.

This introduction is important to know before you read this article. It is important to understand where she is coming from when she is writing this.

Rush Limbaugh Isn’t the Only Media Misogynist

Mar 4, 2012 10:00 AM EST

Rush Limbaugh apologized on Saturday for calling a Georgetown Law student a slut for testifying about contraception and starting a firestorm of outrage. Kirsten Powers says the liberals who led the charge need to start holding their own side accountable.

Read the article, it's well worth your time.

As a bonus, read this. It asks the question "Will Obama return the $1 million he got from Maher's PAC"?

Finally, when you are done, pass this on.

We are small bloggers with no real power but as a group we can make change.

Write your own piece, if you see fit.

It is time we bring the left kicking and screaming into the light of day. Time to put them on display for the misogynist, racist, hateful people they really are.

The media is not going to do it for us.

EXCELLENT article pointing out the rampant hypocrisy of the MSM and the left!

Maher, the grand poo-bah of misogyny. HAHAHA!!! I love that the auhor pointed that out!

That, and his hatred of religion! Remember how no one was allowed to say a thing to Obama about the 'reverend' Wright? And he somehow missed every hateful sermon?

But when Maher conducts a posthumus 'unbaptising' of Romney's father in law, THAT'S FUNNY.


Chuck said...

Maher is a jerk. In other words, a liberal.

Chuck - To quote Harry Truman:

Suppose you were a Idiot.

Then suppose you were a Republican.

But then I repeat myself.

Chuck - Bill Maher is not a Jerk.

Brooke - The Unbaptizing of Mitt
Romney's father-in-law WAS funny.

Chuck - I almost forgot.

I think your new 'look' on your Blog is Really great.

Please see my post today about Sandra Fluke.

Rush should have used that information. Why didn't he?

Chuck said...

Sue, sorry but he is complete and total idiot.

Where do you stand on Rush? I'm suspecting you disagreed, to say the least.

Did you read the article about Maher? How is what he did not considerably worse than Rush?

This is the whole point of the post and the article it linked to. When a liberal says things like this, it's funny. When a conservative like Rush says it, it's hateful and they need to be run off the air.

AOW, she is not the innocent the left wants her to be. Should he have called her a slut? No. But they also should not be canonizing her either.

I rarely miss Rush's 3 hour show. Since obama took over and destroyed the economy, I no longer have to wait 'til I get home from work and listen to podcast. The bright side is that the sky rocketing cost of gas under obama's ineptness is elastic since there is nowhere to drive. Oh, and Maher is a boob but the left always protects their own. Time is coming to crush them like the bugs they are.

Right Wing Theocrat said...

Rush is a far bigger man than the pygmies on the left, at least he apologized and doesn't have a history of treating women like trash, which is what some of the male liberal talking heads do.

sue hanes said...

Listen up - you People here on Chuck's Really Great and Solid Blog -

Didja read the headines today on MSN.com - that said that:



Chuck said...

Dablade, agreed

MK, no one is a racist/sexist like a lib

Sue, please do not use caps like that - I find it rude.

As to Maher, his "support" of Rush was pathetic.

-He did not come out and say that until he started getting heat. He was trying to detract from himself.

-Notice that although he gave credit to Rush for apologizing and wanted everyone to accept it, he didn't in fact apologize for the hateful stuff he said.

It was a bunch of sad, pathetic bullshit.

Z said...

Excellent...except she left out the choicest of Maher's words...REALLY vile stuff, particularly about Laura Ingrham.
Maher a "JERK"? That's a TOTAL insult to the term JERK, Chuck. shudder. He's lower than the lowest low.
Did I ever tell you how he came on to underage coeds at Loyola Marymount here in LA every time they invited him to speak? Mind you, the conservative editor of their school paper had both sides of the political spectrum every other month there...since she graduated and a lib is in charge, they never invite conservatives anymore. That's the total truth, by the way, from the horse's mouth.
Ya, she told me Maher asked for booze behind the stage and hit on young girls to get them to his hotel room.
shudder again.

And that money he gave Obama? After calling Conservative women the names he calls them...and Obama's SUPER PAC takes it? WOW.

Kirsten Powers is very fair in this article...I'm impressed. As you say, I see her a lot on FOX and don't always agree with her, but she does seem to be fair. A very good, and dying, trait.

sue hanes said...

Chuck - I'm sorry about using the caps.

It won't happen again.

I guess I just got carried away - with the Rush Limbaugh/Bill Maher


cube said...

Maher only made that pseudo apology because he started to feel the heat about his comments.

Frankly, I think the comments by Rush AND especially Maher are inexcusable, but they fall under the banner of free speech. I defend free speech even when I don't agree with it.

I do, however, find it unfair that only one side of the political arena gets punished for speaking their mind.

That needs to change.

sue hanes said...

Chuck - I was just rereading the comments here - and I realized that you asked me how I stand on Rush.

I've never liked him - but the defining moment on that - came when I read that he had called Chelsea Clinton a dog.

Now that was back when Bill Clinton
first took office - and I'm not opposed to namecallig of Presidents.

But Chealsea was a young girl - and I found it inexcusable that Rush Limbaugh would stoop so low.

That happened a long time ago - Chuck - but it was something that always stayed with me.

sue hanes said...

Chuck - What do you mean when you say - why is not what Bill Maher did not worse than what Rush did?

What did Bill Maher do - that you are talking about here?

Chuck said...

Cube, dead on. I think we all have a right to make an idiot of ourselves. But...if Rush is going to be crucified than Maher needs to be to. Obama goes after Rush and uses the woman as a campaign prop b y calling her. When asked about Maher he says he is not going to police what people say. WTF???

Sue, google Maher comments about the right. What hasn't he said? He is a hateful misogynist.

sue hanes said...

Chuck - With all due respect to you - since this is your blog - what you want to get out of Maher -is what you get.
