According to Maher, it was terribly wrong for Limbaugh to call Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute”, but perfectly OK for him to call Sarah Palin a “C***,” which is on the FCC list of “Seven Dirty Words” and not fit for broadcast.
And Maher’s argument is—?
Well, to begin with, Palin is a Republican conservative, which in and of itself qualifies any female for immediate membership in the Maher “C***” Hall of Fame.
Then there is this garbled babble which Maher actually thinks makes good sense:
“To compare that to Rush is ridiculous – he went after a civilian about very specific behavior, that was a lie, speaking for a party that has systematically gone after women’s rights all year, on the public airwaves. I used a rude word about a public figure who gives as good as she gets, who’s called people ‘terrorist’ and ‘unAmerican.’ Sarah Barracuda.”
According to this brain-dead lefty, the term “un-American”
is on equal footing with “C***”? And using that term against a woman who just happens to be a public figure is acceptable?
Good grief, where was this loser hatched? Is Maher lacking respect for all women in public life? How about ding-bats like Nancy Pelosi?
If Maher had even the slightest respect for women, he would declare that it is wrong to use that sort of language (slut, C***, etc.) against any woman, regardless of political affiliation and public posture.
One small ray of sunshine appeared when Obama strategist David Axelrod cancelled his scheduled appearance on Maher’s HBO show. Now just talk your boss into refusing to accept Maher’s tainted $1 million gift, David, and you will be making a moral stand for women—all women– against the likes of Maher.
In the mean time, it’s time for women and men of all political persuasions to push back by writing HBO to demand that Bill Maher’s anti-women hatred be yanked from the airwaves—NOW!
