Oh God Rush Limbaugh Got a Twitter Account: Five of His Most Disgusting On-Air Sandra Fluke Statements

What a guy!
Fabulous news, everyone. ​All-around nice guy Rush Limbaugh has found a new way of disseminating the cheery and good-natured messages he conceives every day from Palm Beach. Limbaugh, whose radio show became one of the most popular in the country through a ceaseless commitment to intellectual honesty and civil discourse, is now on Twitter.

Seriously though, he's on there, and yesterday more than 100,000 followers flocked to the site of his sneering, self-satisfied visage and hit that little "follow" button to make sure they didn't miss a word of his bilious output. 

Maybe he's just post links to articles and challenge conventional narratives and those things that he does that aren't so terrible -- that's what his first two tweets are.

Or maybe he'll use it like he uses his show, twisting actual debates into unrecognizable caricatures, then attacking the caricature like he's the only one who sees the truth. Like when 30-year-old law student Sandra Fluke wanted to testify at a congressional hearing about mandated insurance coverage of birth control pills. The argument could have been "can employers use their religion to dictate the medical care of their employees?" Limbaugh's argument, instead, can be distilled into "Sandra Fluke is a whore."

But don't try getting mad at him over it -- anger is validation. Liberals don't get angry about people being idiots on nationally syndicated radio -- they only get mad when they're called out on their big Marxist plots. Where there's a frustrated Democrat, you can be sure somewhere close by is a sinister plot that Rush uncovered, and if you say otherwise, well, then, you must be a Democrat.

In case you've somehow missed this whole controversy, here are Rush's five most egregious statements on the incident:

1. "She's having so much sex, it's amazing she can still walk." (source)

2. "Who bought your condoms in sixth grade?" (source)

3. "What does it say about the college co-ed Susan Fluke, who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex, what does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She's having so much sex she can't afford the contraception." (source)

4. "A woman who is happily presenting herself as an immoral, baseless, no-purpose-to-her life woman. She wants all the sex in the world whenever she wants it, all the time, no consequences. No responsibility for her behavior." (source)

5. "So Miss Fluke, and the rest of you feminazis, here's the deal. If we are going to pay for your contraceptives -- and thus pay for you to have sex -- we want something for it. We want you post the videos online so we can all watch." (source)

Great. Sign me up for THAT Twitter feed.

Your outrage is to funny, get over it already. You outrage would be believable if you equally called out bad behaviour on the left such as..

1) Bill Maher calling Sarah Palin a c..t. not a peep out of the left.

2) David Letterman attempting to make a joke about Ms Pallins teenage daughter getting "knocked up" by Alex Rodriguez.

Real classy. What ever happened to chivalry?

Instead of spending time analyzing what Rush Limbaugh says every day, why don't you pay attention to what our Socialist Muslim President Obama is saying and doing.  You have no idea that Obamacare will DESTROY the best healtcare system on earth. You have no idea or concept that we will have to wait for any surgery or medical procedures.  If you are elderly, forget about it.  You will die waiting for surgery, or you will go bankrupt trying to pay for it yourself.  You have no idea that if he wins again, we will be paying $8.00 per gallon for gas within two years.  You have no idea that in order for him to even attempt to pay for Obamacare (and he will not be able to pay for it no matter what he does), he will raise taxes bigtime on all of us beginning January 2, 2012.Quit picking on Rush, and focus your attention on IMPORTANT THINGS like getting this asshole out of office before he destroys the country.

 So many problems with these statements.. First off, the USA does not have the best healthcare in the world, its actually ranked 37th in the world.President Obama is the farthest thing from a socialist since he tends to be very supportive of business.  The muslim bit is too inane to even comment on since it was you guys complaining about Reverend Write for a long time.Yes, he does want to raise taxes, but only by 2% and only to those making over a million a year which I am pretty sure they can afford.You need to stop listening to Rush and FOX for your "facts" since they are usually very wrong.

You know what...

As a man, I believe the following.

I believe women should have access to affordable health care.

I believe women should have affordable access to pap smears.

I believe women should have affordable access to mammograms.

I believe women should have affordable access to cervical cancer screening.

I believe women should have affordable access to breast examinations.

I believe women should affordable access to medicine that prevents cancers, cysts, and the such.

And yes, I believe women should affordable access to contraceptives.

I believe these rights are basic Human Rights, available to all regardless of race, creed, or color.

But I don't believe the State has a right to subject a woman to an ultrasound vaginal probe prior to having an abortion -- doubly so since this procedure is not medically required.

Chaz Stevens, proud fucking bleeding heart liberal since day 1.

I believe that everybody should have access to all the health care they can afford.

I do not believe that I should pay any female's health care if she doesn't feel like paying for it.

If you don't think your life is worth saving your money to take care of, then I absolutely agree with you.

If any woman thinks that $9 a month is too much money for her to spend to prevent the last weasel she slept with from knocking her up, then I also agree with her.

I think that flaming liberals like you should contribute to a fund to pay for any womans health care.  If you care so much, pay for your pleasures, but take your hand out of my pocket.

I believe that all folks should have access to all the healthcare they need-regardless of what sex they are.But I do not believe I tshould have to pay for contraception- just as I should not have to pay for Viagra.If a woman needs "the pill" for other than contraception, I don't have a problem with that- altho it contributes to heart attacks, and strokes ( especially if a woman smokes) ,it is used for other things. There are numerous ways to avoid pregancy w/o contraception- and abstinence  is only one of them.

 Where are you getting your numbers?  Birth control costs a HELL of alot more than $9 a month.  And for the millionth time, its not just for sex.  Its a useful drug to combat female illness.  Stop being such a Luddite and LEARN something for once.  I know its against everything you stand for to learn things, but trust me it will not hurt you.

Tell you what...

I help contribute to health care if you take over responsbility for paying to fight senseless wars...

Shit, I'll even take on education and road buildings, if you pay for blowing shit up.

A flaming liberal actually wants to pay for something himself!!!!

Be still my beating heart.  There is hope for America.  But I doubt he actually means it.

BTW - Merely because you post under your name does not make you wise, intelligent or correct.  In your case, the exact opposite is true.

I gotta agree fully and completely to this.The question that lingers in my head is this..I love women, but I wonder why the right fright wing hate them so much?You would think they were all about em since they want insurance to cover viagra, a drug who has but one purpose and that is purely sexual.

It's true, Chazoid, you pointy headed liberals are unable to conceive of anyone having a viewpoint other than yours, thus the mutterings of 'what the fuck' and 'are they high'.  The mere fact that you can not understand indicates why you are such a fool.

Hi browardpalmbeach! Joining Twitter and Facebook is not something to brag about. Get over yourselves. This is not just for Limbaugh, not just for every other celebrity, but for everyone on Twitter.At what point do you really think we actually care at what you have to say.

 It is not an employer's duty to provide for an employee's wants, but merely to pay for the time they work.  This concept means that employers don't have to pay for food, housing, clothing, transportation or health care.  This includes, booze, drugs, cable, internet, porn, or sex, all of which are rights in liberal land.

I see no reason to pay for anybody's contraceptives.  That is a CHOICE, not a disease.  It is also only $9 a month.

Sandra Fluke is a slut and a stupid, cheap one at that.  For the rest of her life this episode will follow her around.  What a dummy.  And she wants to be a shyster.  God help her clients, as she clearly is unable to foresee the results of her own actions.

 fq...,you allege that it is not an employers duty to provide health care. yet access to health insurance is virtually impossible for many outside of the employment/insurance link that the tongue speakers and snake handlers favor so loudly in opposition to the world wide accepted and much more logical single payer system. the system you favor mandates the employer/insurance link to provide for basic health care needs. why then would you state that it is not the employers duty to so? have you ever had two congruent thoughts? i mean other than supporting sarah palin and rick santorum.

The only reason why it is hard to get cheap health insurance is because the unions paid off their pet Congresscraps to set it up that way.  It has nothing to do with employers.

Sir/Madam/Thing.

I applaud you, for your amazing ability to have the audience mutter to themselves "What the fuck?  Are they high?"

Props to you!

If is is $9, that is much cheaper for the Gov't to pay, then the billions and billions of dollars spent on unwanted children.

 have you seen the study in the movie, freakonomics about the direct relation between strict anti-abortion and anti-contraception laws and high crime rates?

jwmcsame

you and your role model rush aren't paying for anyone else's birth control pills. the insurance company is or should and they are paid premiums to do so. to believe so and keep shouting that you and rush are paying for other's contraceptives only reveals to others your extremely small mind. you are obviously anti-abortion. yet like the many tongue speakers and snake handlers who are driving the gop over a cliff on meaningless issues, you are too dumb to realize that insured covered contraception is the single greatest step to preventing abortion. further (assuming you are a straight guy), if you protest women having sex without pregnancy worries, then make sure whatever so unfortunate woman who has to have sex with you only does so for procreation about 2 or 3 times in your lifetime. sounds like that may already be the case though. also, ever wonder why 4 time married rush has no kids? i'll bet it doesn't have anything to do with birth control pills.

 I was wondering when the troll would come out.  And this proves just how little he knows about women.Birth control is A LOT more expensive than $9 a month.  I was paying for my ex fiances pills that were prescribed to help with her endometriosis cost something like $600 a month.  I forget the exact cost since this was a while ago.And unlike your viagra, it actually serves as something more than just to have sex.  It is a medical treatment used to control periods, the growth of cysts, even acne.  Your viagra is just for sex.I know this is a hard concept for you to grasp, but just because someone is on the pill does not mean that they are having some sort of orgy just out of your reach that they didnt invite you to.

 all medicine is real cheap at the fox news pharmacy. they practically give it away and the insurance company execs are just barely scraping by from the way fox news explains it.

So in other words, the things he said on air is only a small part, and possibly the tamest, thing he actually said.  You would think that after all these years on radio, he would have some sort of filter in place so that this crap doesnt come spewing out.Nah, this is Rush..the one person on the planet that Westboro Baptist actually LIKES and is trying to sponsor.I think the right fright wing needs to come back from its Spanish Inquisition position and maybe cut back on all the hate.  And Rush is one of your worst liabilities.

Does your employer buy you lunch every day?  No?  So the New Times is dictating your lunch choices?

An incomplete analogy. If New Times bought male staffers whatever they wanted for lunch every day and told me I could only eat peanut butter, I think it would be fair to say New Times was at least restricting my access to lunch.
