AUL, Dana Loesch and Amy Farah Fowler on the "Con"

As Andrew Bre­it­bart pointed out the real bat­tle­ground for Amer­ica is in the cul­ture as it was demon­strated in the last few days.

The left has gone all out to por­tray any oppo­si­tion to the new Gov­ern­ment man­date on Catholic Insti­tu­tions as an “attack on women”. American’s United for life call this “con” for what it is:

While AUL was point­ing out this con, the left was per­pet­u­at­ing a sec­ond lit­eral one on GOP members.

The aptly named San­dra Fluke aptly since none of her actions were a 30-​year-​old activist was por­trayed as a 23-​year-​old co-​ed by the left and her sup­port­ers held a Mock hear­ing on Cap­i­tal Hill to bemoan the idea that George­town, a Catholic Col­lege would not pay for her birth con­trol at $1000 a year. As Jam­mie Wear­ing Fool discovered:

In one of her first inter­views she is quoted as talk­ing about how she reviewed Georgetown’s insur­ance pol­icy prior to com­mit­ting to attend, and see­ing that it didn’t cover con­tra­cep­tive ser­vices, she decided to attend with the express pur­pose of bat­tling this pol­icy. Dur­ing this time, she was described as a 23-​year-​old coed. Mag­i­cally, at the same time Con­gress is debat­ing the forced cov­er­age of con­tra­cep­tion, she appears and is even brought to Capi­tol Hill to tes­tify. This morn­ing, in an inter­view with Matt Lauer on the Today show, it was revealed that she is 30 years old, NOT the 23 that had been reported all along.

In other words, folks, you are being played. She has been an activist all along and the Dems were just wait­ing for the appro­pri­ate time to play her.

And play her they did, when Rush Lim­baugh crunched the num­bers and used the adjec­tive “Slut” to describe her, not a gen­tle­manly word, the left pounced, but Rush stood firm. As Stacy McCain pointed out.

If we remove “slut” from our dis­course, we thereby dis­card half the reward of chastity, namely the supe­ri­or­ity of pres­tige that the vir­tu­ous woman should rightly enjoy in com­par­i­son to those who are less vir­tu­ous. And, I must has­ten to add, we also degrade our dis­course if we mis­use “slut” as an ugly syn­onym for “woman I don’t like,” as the Left uses the word against con­ser­v­a­tive women who have never done any­thing to deserve a rep­u­ta­tion for promiscuity.

The degra­da­tion of lan­guage is one of the weapons of totalitarianism.

Now I’m a big pro­po­nent of act­ing like a gen­tle­man so I wouldn’t have said what Rush did, but I decided to ask some spe­cific questions:

I think these are very good ques­tion and I’d love to hear the answers as would Amy Farah Fowler::

Shel­don: Based on the num­ber of awk­ward encoun­ters I’ve had with strange men leav­ing her apart­ment in the morn­ing plus the num­ber of times she’s returned home wear­ing the same clothes she wore the night before…

Penny: OK Shel­don I think you’ve made your point…

Shel­don: ..So we mul­ti­ply 193 — 21 men before the lost of vir­gin­ity so 172 times .18 gives us 30.96 sex­ual part­ners. Let’s round that up to 31.

Penny: OK Shel­don you are SO wrong, that is not close to the real number..(to the waitress)…I’m gonna need a drink over here…

Amy: This is very inter­est­ing cul­tural per­cep­tions are sub­jec­tive: In your mind Penny: Are you a slut?

Obvi­ously we need to orga­nize a boy­cott of the Big Bang The­ory, STAT!

Dana Loesch points out the total BS of this:

I’ve not heard a sin­gle Repub­li­can politi­cian stand up to the media nar­ra­tive on this. Instead of pro­ject­ing sur­ro­gate mod­esty towards Fluke, they project it towards Lim­baugh, who is call­ing the truth for what it is. Fluke, a 30 year-​old (pre­sented as a 23 year-​old col­lege coed by the media) women’s activist/​professional stu­dent, is likely not hav­ing monog­a­mous sex with the same man approx­i­mately 2.74 times a day, every day, for three straight years (in order to sat­isfy the cal­cu­la­tions about which she felt con­fi­dent enough to present dur­ing a con­gres­sional tes­ti­mony). If she is, kudos! But promis­cu­ity is not the hall­mark of a vir­tu­ous woman. Is it Limbaugh’s fault for point­ing it out or Fluke’s fault for the behav­ior? It’s a rhetor­i­cal ques­tion and the answer proved Limbaugh’s entire point.

The real war on women is being per­pet­u­ated upon us by our own sex; women who seek to place us under the con­trol of a pimp-​daddy gov­ern­ment by demand­ing it cover all our needs, in exchange for con­trol, or force pri­vate enti­ties to do so in its stead.

I think all of this is a sign of what I was talk­ing about yes­ter­day. The Democ­rats and the media know that Pres­i­dent Obama and the Democ­rats only win if they are not talk­ing about their record.

This is yet another man­i­fes­ta­tion of this, and if we fall for it, the more fool us.

Update: Take look a Meme­o­ran­dum and see what the left is shov­el­ing. Ques­tion, if they pre­tend to actu­ally be inter­ested in the wel­fare of the aver­age per­son explain to me why this is their story instead of $4 a gal gas?

Courage is the first virtue. If you don’t have the courage to stand up to this, noth­ing else matters.

Update 2: Smitty:

the President’s bud­get, again, is a turd, while Harry Reid’s con­sti­pa­tion rages and he won’t even leave one. The deficit is about to wrap around the moon. &c, &c, &c.

This entire con­tra­cep­tion debate is a twofer: it both destroys and dis­tracts. When you under­stand that the Admin­is­tra­tion is purely about destroy­ing this coun­try, all of this idiocy comes into dia­bol­i­cal focus.

What will San­dra Fluke’s Czar title be in the next Obama Admin­is­tra­tion? I like Post­mod­ern Absurd Dis­trac­tion Czar. Your sug­ges­tions in the comments.


Update 2:
Rush apol­o­gizes.

For over 20 years, I have illus­trated the absurd with absur­dity, three hours a day, five days a week. In this instance, I chose the wrong words in my anal­ogy of the sit­u­a­tion. I did not mean a per­sonal attack on Ms. Fluke.

I think it is absolutely absurd that dur­ing these very seri­ous polit­i­cal times, we are dis­cussing per­sonal sex­ual recre­ational activ­i­ties before mem­bers of Con­gress. I per­son­ally do not agree that Amer­i­can cit­i­zens should pay for these social activ­i­ties. What hap­pened to per­sonal respon­si­bil­ity and account­abil­ity? Where do we draw the line? If this is accepted as the norm, what will fol­low? Will we be debat­ing if tax­pay­ers should pay for new sneak­ers for all stu­dents that are inter­ested in run­ning to keep fit?In my mono­logue, I posited that it is not our busi­ness what­so­ever to know what is going on in anyone’s bed­room nor do I think it is a topic that should reach a Pres­i­den­tial level.

My choice of words was not the best, and in the attempt to be humor­ous, I cre­ated a national stir. I sin­cerely apol­o­gize to Ms. Fluke for the insult­ing word choices.

I pre­dict that Rush’s apol­ogy will be pro­duce the same calm­ing effect as Molly Nor­ris’ and Barack Obama’s apol­o­gizes to rad­i­cal Islamists.

Update 3: On fur­ther reac­tion I think Rush is about to Bre­it­bart the MSM, and the left. They will not accept his apol­ogy and he will open his show not­ing the sim­i­lar­i­ties in the reac­tion to his apol­ogy by the left and the reac­tion of Afghans to Obama’s apology.

Update 4: Insta­lanche, thanks Glenn, and let me point to three other posts first one along this theme of dis­trac­tion:

My hus­band and I had to attend a late mass today, and we man­aged to make it to the last avail­able mass at parish in the next town. We haven’t gone to this parish in a while, and as we drove the main thor­ough­fare we were shocked to see how many busi­nesses were gone — restau­rants that had been around for 20 years — closed. Small busi­nesses my kids used to patron­ize — shut­tered and dis­ap­peared. Even real­tor offices were closed — not sur­pris­ing given the mar­ket, but still.

Med­ical office “parks” had signs adver­tis­ing avail­able space. The gas prices were the high­est we have seen in our life­times. My hus­band remarked that those busi­nesses hav­ing man­aged to stay open with gas at $3.50 a gal­lon might yet see their doors close as already-​struggling cus­tomers have to re-​budget and re=-prioritize their spend­ing, and every­one needs $4.50 a gal­lon gas to get to work or — as is often the case, to just go look for work.

Very depress­ing. And I don’t think we’re any­where near out of the woods yet.

For the left there HAS to be a dif­fer­ent cri­sis, because they cer­tainly don’t talk about this one.

Sec­ondly let me direct you to the fol­low­ing lines from my lat­est Under the Fedora Col­umn that the Con­ser­va­tory decided to run a day early.

I think the left has over­played this. Rush’s phras­ing was ungentle­manly, but women aren’t dopes. They might not like what Rush said, but they know what $83 a month for birth con­trol means, and vot­ers in gen­eral are even less likely to be in favor of pay­ing that $83 a month per woman.

Which, I sus­pect, is what Rush wanted to happen.

Now lets turn to Bill Jacob­son who has a tar­get in his sights:

It is time to take a stand against the left-​wing tac­tic of going after adver­tis­ers. Car­bonite is the com­pany on which to make that stand.

First, Car­bonite is so asso­ci­ated with Rush that it must have a high num­ber of Rush lis­ten­ers as sub­scribers. Far more, I sus­pect, than those who love to hear Ed Schultz call the Tea Party names. So a reac­tion can be effective.

With or with­out Car­bonite Rush still has 20 mil­lion loyal lis­ten­ers I sus­pect that com­pa­nies like Car­bonite that didn’t like the pres­sure from the left will like the mass can­cel­la­tions and the non-​existent renewals of those 20 mil­lion a whole lot more.

And one last finan­cial note, I’m in the mid­dle of a minor bleg as I sus­pect my power pin/​motherboard is short­ing out. Any help would be appre­ci­ated.

As Andrew Breitbart pointed out the real battleground for America is in the culture as it was demonstrated in the last few days.

The left has gone all out to portray any opposition to the new Government mandate on Catholic Institutions as an “attack on women”. American’s United for life call this “con” for what it is:

While AUL was pointing out this con, the left was perpetuating a second literal one on GOP members.

The aptly named Sandra Fluke aptly since none of her actions were a 30-year-old activist was portrayed as a 23-year-old co-ed by the left and her supporters held a Mock hearing on Capital Hill to bemoan the idea that Georgetown, a Catholic College would not pay for her birth control at $1000 a year. As Jammie Wearing Fool discovered:

In one of her first interviews she is quoted as talking about how she reviewed Georgetown’s insurance policy prior to committing to attend, and seeing that it didn’t cover contraceptive services, she decided to attend with the express purpose of battling this policy. During this time, she was described as a 23-year-old coed. Magically, at the same time Congress is debating the forced coverage of contraception, she appears and is even brought to Capitol Hill to testify. This morning, in an interview with Matt Lauer on the Today show, it was revealed that she is 30 years old, NOT the 23 that had been reported all along.

In other words, folks, you are being played. She has been an activist all along and the Dems were just waiting for the appropriate time to play her.

And play her they did, when Rush Limbaugh crunched the numbers and used the adjective “Slut” to describe her, not a gentlemanly word, the left pounced, but Rush stood firm. As Stacy McCain pointed out.

If we remove “slut” from our discourse, we thereby discard half the reward of chastity, namely the superiority of prestige that the virtuous woman should rightly enjoy in comparison to those who are less virtuous. And, I must hasten to add, we also degrade our discourse if we misuse “slut” as an ugly synonym for “woman I don’t like,” as the Left uses the word against conservative women who have never done anything to deserve a reputation for promiscuity.

The degradation of language is one of the weapons of totalitarianism.

Now I’m a big proponent of acting like a gentleman so I wouldn’t have said what Rush did, but I decided to ask some specific questions:

I think these are very good question and I’d love to hear the answers as would Amy Farah Fowler::

Sheldon: Based on the number of awkward encounters I’ve had with strange men leaving her apartment in the morning plus the number of times she’s returned home wearing the same clothes she wore the night before…

Penny: OK Sheldon I think you’ve made your point…

Sheldon: ..So we multiply 193 – 21 men before the lost of virginity so 172 times .18 gives us 30.96 sexual partners. Let’s round that up to 31.

Penny: OK Sheldon you are SO wrong, that is not close to the real number..(to the waitress)…I’m gonna need a drink over here…

Amy: This is very interesting cultural perceptions are subjective: In your mind Penny: Are you a slut?

Obviously we need to organize a boycott of the Big Bang Theory, STAT!

Dana Loesch points out the total BS of this:

I’ve not heard a single Republican politician stand up to the media narrative on this. Instead of projecting surrogate modesty towards Fluke, they project it towards Limbaugh, who is calling the truth for what it is. Fluke, a 30 year-old (presented as a 23 year-old college coed by the media) women’s activist/professional student, is likely not having monogamous sex with the same man approximately 2.74 times a day, every day, for three straight years (in order to satisfy the calculations about which she felt confident enough to present during a congressional testimony). If she is, kudos! But promiscuity is not the hallmark of a virtuous woman. Is it Limbaugh’s fault for pointing it out or Fluke’s fault for the behavior? It’s a rhetorical question and the answer proved Limbaugh’s entire point.

The real war on women is being perpetuated upon us by our own sex; women who seek to place us under the control of a pimp-daddy government by demanding it cover all our needs, in exchange for control, or force private entities to do so in its stead.

I think all of this is a sign of what I was talking about yesterday. The Democrats and the media know that President Obama and the Democrats only win if they are not talking about their record.

This is yet another manifestation of this, and if we fall for it, the more fool us.

Update: Take a look a Memeorandum and see what the left is shoveling. Question, if they pretend to actually be interested in the welfare of the average person explain to me why this is their story instead of $4 a gal gas?

Courage is the first virtue. If you don’t have the courage to stand up to this, nothing else matters.

Update 2: Smitty:

the President’s budget, again, is a turd, while Harry Reid’s constipation rages and he won’t even leave one. The deficit is about to wrap around the moon. &c, &c, &c.

This entire contraception debate is a twofer: it both destroys and distracts. When you understand that the Administration is purely about destroying this country, all of this idiocy comes into diabolical focus.

What will Sandra Fluke’s Czar title be in the next Obama Administration? I like Postmodern Absurd Distraction Czar. Your suggestions in the comments.


Update 2:
Rush apologizes.

For over 20 years, I have illustrated the absurd with absurdity, three hours a day, five days a week. In this instance, I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situation. I did not mean a personal attack on Ms. Fluke.

I think it is absolutely absurd that during these very serious political times, we are discussing personal sexual recreational activities before members of Congress. I personally do not agree that American citizens should pay for these social activities. What happened to personal responsibility and accountability? Where do we draw the line? If this is accepted as the norm, what will follow? Will we be debating if taxpayers should pay for new sneakers for all students that are interested in running to keep fit?In my monologue, I posited that it is not our business whatsoever to know what is going on in anyone’s bedroom nor do I think it is a topic that should reach a Presidential level.

My choice of words was not the best, and in the attempt to be humorous, I created a national stir. I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for the insulting word choices.

I predict that Rush’s apology will be produce the same calming effect as Molly Norris’ and Barack Obama’s apologizes to radical Islamists.

Update 3: On further reaction I think Rush is about to Breitbart the MSM, and the left. They will not accept his apology and he will open his show noting the similarities in the reaction to his apology by the left and the reaction of Afghans to Obama’s apology.

Update 4: Instalanche, thanks Glenn, and let me point to three other posts first one along this theme of distraction:

My husband and I had to attend a late mass today, and we managed to make it to the last available mass at parish in the next town. We haven’t gone to this parish in a while, and as we drove the main thoroughfare we were shocked to see how many businesses were gone — restaurants that had been around for 20 years — closed. Small businesses my kids used to patronize — shuttered and disappeared. Even realtor offices were closed — not surprising given the market, but still.

Medical office “parks” had signs advertising available space. The gas prices were the highest we have seen in our lifetimes. My husband remarked that those businesses having managed to stay open with gas at $3.50 a gallon might yet see their doors close as already-struggling customers have to re-budget and re=-prioritize their spending, and everyone needs $4.50 a gallon gas to get to work or — as is often the case, to just go look for work.

Very depressing. And I don’t think we’re anywhere near out of the woods yet.

For the left there HAS to be a different crisis, because they certainly don’t talk about this one.

Secondly let me direct you to the following lines from my latest Under the Fedora Column that the Conservatory decided to run a day early.

I think the left has overplayed this. Rush’s phrasing was ungentlemanly, but women aren’t dopes. They might not like what Rush said, but they know what $83 a month for birth control means, and voters in general are even less likely to be in favor of paying that $83 a month per woman.

Which, I suspect, is what Rush wanted to happen.

Now lets turn to Bill Jacobson who has a target in his sights:

It is time to take a stand against the left-wing tactic of going after advertisers. Carbonite is the company on which to make that stand.

First, Carbonite is so associated with Rush that it must have a high number of Rush listeners as subscribers. Far more, I suspect, than those who love to hear Ed Schultz call the Tea Party names. So a reaction can be effective.

With or without Carbonite Rush still has 20 million loyal listeners I suspect that companies like Carbonite that didn’t like the pressure from the left will like the mass cancellations and the non-existent renewals of those 20 million a whole lot more.

And one last financial note, I’m in the middle of a minor bleg as I suspect my power pin/motherboard is shorting out. Any help would be appreciated.
