As usual they have lots of BS about why liberals can call conservatives c*nts, b*tches, tw*ts, but it's OUTRAGEOUS when Rush does it. (That doesn't mean I agree when Rush does it, but the double standard liberals have about this is nothing but first rate.) They tie themselves up in knots justifying the grotesque things that have been said about conservative women, but essentially it all comes down to ..........they deserve it.

Kirsten Powers doubles down on Liberal misogny.

The truth hurts.

Members of the professional left reacted with outrage to my column this week calling them out for their fake war against media misogyny. Instead of addressing the encyclopedia of left-wing misogyny I raised, many liberals chose instead to start a ferocious battle with all manner of straw men.

ďItís not true that liberals never call out people for misogyny!Ē is the refrain. Of course itís not true, and I never said it was. Many of the professional left seem incapable of distinguishing between a few blog posts and comments condemning left-wing misogyny and a full-scale war to remove someone from their job. This really shouldnít be so hard to grasp: If you hate misogyny and sexism in the media, then react to the consistent and repeated misogyny of men on the left with the same fervor that you have reacted to Rush Limbaughís sickening outbursts

2. here's the difference

Sandra Fluke is not a public figure.

And while Sarah may claim that Bristol is not, being a contestant on Dancing With the Stars pushed her into that territory. They were calling her and Trig names long before she was a contestant on Dancing with the Stars.

According to this justification anyone should be able to call Michelle Obama a tw*t and c*nt freely since she is a public figure. She's not just married to the President, she makes public appearances and tries to tell everyone what they should eat among other things. Public figure. Go figure.:rolleyes: That means we get a free pass to demean her.

13. The difference: Limbaugh is not a comedian. He is the mouthpiece of the Republican party

View profile
and Bill Mahr makes jokes about people and situations. That is what comedians do.

When this subject comes up it is always fascinating how right wing nuts can't find one sentence said by a liberal commentator they can put quotes around. Limbaugh has many insulting things that are in black and white with quotes.

I challenge any wing nutter to come up with a liberal quote from a political pundit that even resembles the "S" and "P" words that Limbaugh used. I also challenge any wing nut to come up with an example of a liberal that spent three days insulting and berating a single individual and demanding a video of them having sex.

17. Kristen Powers has sold her soul

View profile
for a paycheck from FAUX News and the NY Post. If this is an issue that has concerned her, why is it only now that she is saying something about it. The best refutation of her accusations was made by David Frum: http://www.cnn.com/2012/03/05/opinion/frum-rush-limbaugh-fairness/index.html

And let me just say this, I've never cared for Matt Taibbi. He's nasty and many times fact challenged: http://prospect.org/article/errors-matt-taibbi

As far as Maher, many of his sexist comments disturb me as well as his racist comments. He called the President 'chocolate jesus' for most of 2008 and makes many subtle racist comments like he did to Neil DeGrasse Tyson on last week's show.

But also remember, Sarah Palin and Michelle Malkin are not innocent victims in this either. They have made many outrageous comments over the years. In contrast to Ms. Fluke who in her appearance before congress stated her case with respect and class.

please allow me to explain something to you.......slowly, and in plain english so that even you can understand. The things that Bill Maher said about Laura Ingram and The Alaskan Dingbat, were "person specific", directed at only a single person, and intended as his opinions of persons with whom he disagrees. What the pig-faced pill-popper said, was directed at the 99% of all women (the other 1% are just lying) who use birth control. Calling women sl*ts just because they have sex, and use birth control, is in no way the same thing as calling someone a c**t because she spews a message of racism, bigtry, and hate, on open airwaves. (translation: she doesn't believe what we believe and she challenges our beliefs)

For those who think that these are the same thing, I feel sorry for you. You are misguided, misinformed, and misled. One other thing, the second grade mentality that what one person does or says gives another person an excuse to do something, is just a typical right-wing tactic, used when all other rationale has been exhausted. Anyone that stoops to such lame rhetoric, does not deserve to be members of a community such as this, a community that was founded as an outlet for those opposing such childish actions and behaviors.

Lets get this right ...

If Liberal/ Progressive / Moonbat says something offensive, its okay with The Moonbats.

If anyone else says something offensive, The Moonbats will destroy them.

And they wonder why we call them hypocrits.

In the eyes of the Moonbats, no Democrat/ Liberal/ Progressive/ fellow Moonbat can do anything wrong.

Everyone else ...

I've seen Taibbi on Scrotum-face's FBN program, ah, excuse me, "The Don Imus Show." In addition to being a generally-crazy CT nutcase, he looks like the guy you would cast as a murderous stalker for a movie. He gives me the creeps.

As Rush pointed out on his show the new ABC show called "GCB" stands for "Good Christian Bit*hes". Where is the outrage?

what a crock of shit, Bill Maher regularly debasses women he doesn't agree with poltically. Rush makes fun of them, but never debasses them.

It's a funny show.

The show doesn't make fun of devout Christians. It makes fun of the shallow fakers, who consider breast implants for their teenaged daughters to be a more important expense than helping the poor. If anything, it is mocking people like the Crouches, the Osteens and other purveyors of the message that "Jesus saves you then makes you rich".


Besides, Annie Potts is hilarious.

Im thick skinned enough to not care about the show. However, if the standard is set where there was SOOO much outrage over 2 words by Rush Limbaugh. Then you have a show calling women "Bi*tches" and mocking christians as fake and hypocrates without any outrage.

THe point is simple. If people make PC standards for society. THen the axe should swing both ways.

Bill Maher himself made a point on Friday's show of saying that although he doesn't like what Rush said about Ms. Fluke, he thinks it's worse when people try to shut someone like Rush up because he said something obnoxious. He said he's been there, which is true, if one remembers how ABC canceled his show after he made some unpopular comments following 9-11.

He defended his own statements about conservative women by saying "I'm a potty-mouth, not a misogynist". Yeah, that's pretty weasely of him.

So's this: "he doesn't like what Rush said ." Why does he dislike what Rush said if he says the same and worse?
