Who Is Sandra Fluke Again?


Pages: 1 2

Sensing that fake heroism was within her grasp, Rohe explained: “It was something I didn’t want to do, but knew I had to out of an obligation to my own values” — such as the value of being popular, of getting a standing ovation and of being praised for her courage.

Liberals’ idea of questioning authority is to check with the authorities to see if a “Question Authority” bumper sticker would be popular.

So, back to Fluke: Who is she, and how did she become the spokesperson for American womanhood? If we’re allowed to submit names, I think we can do better than a Georgetown law student whose claim to fame is that she belongs to a college club on “reproductive justice.”

Pursuing a typical path to liberal heroics, Fluke was an utter nobody whom the Democrats substituted in a last-minute witness-switch to testify about contraception — as if her haircut isn’t birth control enough — at a hearing on “religious liberty.”

Despite her credentials as a heretofore unheard-of “birth control activist,” the Oversight and Government Reform Committee declined to accept this 11th-hour witness on the grounds that Fluke did not have appropriate credentials for any congressional hearing, much less one on religious liberty.

That was the Republicans’ first foray into “silencing” Fluke’s “voice.”

Nancy Pelosi used an even less appropriate committee to ensure that Fluke’s “voice” would be heard — the Democrats’ Steering and Policy Committee, the normal function of which is to give House Democrats committee assignments.

One longtime Democratic operative admitted privately that Fluke was the least-qualified witness ever to appear before a congressional committee.

As a result of the huge commotion the Democrats’ made of Fluke’s “testimony,” she was ridiculed the same way people in ridiculous situations often are. She was called some mean names: “slut,” “prostitute,” “law student” …

In full indignation, Fluke said her critics were trying “to silence women’s voices.” She said this on ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, NPR and a number of other national media outlets.

Thus, Fluke became a liberal hero even braver than an actress standing up for abortion rights in front of a Bill Maher audience.

President Obama called Fluke and told her that her parents should be proud of her and to make sure she was OK. Hillary Clinton said conservatives were trying to control women. Bill Clinton called her to see if she had any plans for the weekend.

(Fluke seems to be holding up wonderfully under the nightmare of constant TV appearances. In fact, if I didn’t know better, I’d think she’s enjoying herself tremendously.)

I don’t care what liberals believe. Just please stop telling me they’re courageous for saying exactly what every non-Fox media outlet in America is dying to hear, or I’ll throw up harder than Rick Santorum did when he read John F. Kennedy’s speech.

    Does this new sensitivity on the left mean their "slut walks" are cancelled? And what would the left be without their contradictory gimmicks and shake and bake outrages?

  • Amused

    Sorry Anne , that big bag of contentious hot air , Limbaugh , turned Fluke into a celebrity .And as usual the Repocon demi-god has trip squarely over his tongue …AGAIN . You can try to spin it which ever way you like , and no doubt , your readers who "listen " rather than intelligently conclude what really is , will suck-up your every misguided word , like the true dumbed down sycophants that they are …but then again , that's exacvtly what comprises your audience .

    • davarino

      Some people just dont get Limbaugh : )

    • Joseph Klein

      Sorry Amused – Your " AYATOLLAH-LIKE " (to quote a term you used in another of your "brilliant" comments in a different thread), friends on the Left want to force people of faith to violate their own core religious beliefs by requiring them to pay the cost of another person's birth control decisions.

      Where is your outrage over the the Left's favorite misogynist – Bill Maher? At least, Limbaugh apologized for his dumb remarks? Maher refuses to apologize, gives $1M to an Obama super Pac and Obama doesn't live up to his call for civility by urging the super Pac to return the money unless Maher apologizes. Where is your outrage over the real war on women going on all over the world, including right here in the United States – the killing of little girls in the womb simply because they are female. In another thread, you dismissed it as irrelevant.

      Intelligent arguments with different points of view, which can be backed up by facts, are always welcome. Some, including yourself, may be "amused" by your hyperventilation, but no one with even an ounce of common sense can take what you say here seriously.

      • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QpgiYe6LToc Roger

        Isn't it interesting how the leftist talking points never seem to hold up to scrutiny?

        No wonder they are careful to control the media so real information isn't allowed out to the viewers.

      • Amused

        Anyone who seeks to ban condoms and spouts the trash Santorum spouts is INDEED an "ayatollah like " idiot . You vote for hiom ….and that makes you an idiot . Maher's a comedian , Limbaughs the demagogue of the conservatives and republicans , youi all are afraid to criticize that moron . As far as taking me serious ? I doubt you can , that would take active critical thought of which you and most of the muses here are incapable of . So have a laugh on me , you'll be laughing on the other side of your face come November .

        • a guest

          "You vote for hiom ….and that makes you an idiot ."

          This coming from a guy who can't spell right or construct a sentence.

          • Amused

            that's a typo asssshat …..look at your keyboard SCHMUCK

          • a guest

            Your posts are full of them. If you can't take the time to correct them or use proper grammar and spelling then you probably have a hard time thinking logically.

          • Amused

            what for , do you have ant trouble getting the meaning ? You anal retentive moron .

          • a guest

            "what for , do you have ant trouble getting the meaning ? You anal retentive moron ."

            Thanks for proving my point once again.

        • fiddler

          Maher earns his living spewing deliberate, premeditated SLANDER. If you are honest, (and I wonder); would you excuse Don Imus for his remark about the African American girls basket ball team?. Take a breath and remember now! Remember how Don Imus faired after that flap. HE is a comedian too! Why is it that Bill Maher emerges unscathed by the "even-handed" left media. Maher (and Letterman) went one worse, they SLANDERED her family. Maher even SLANDERED Palin's son Trigg who has downs syndrome. Where is the outrage "amused". WE are are all amused at your selective amusement.

          • Todd Beaucoudray

            You have no idea what slander is. Name-calling, joking about, or talking about someone isn't slander. Slander is espousing false information about someone and defaming them, thereby, doing someone harm to his standing in the community, his job, etc. Please tell me, what exactly did Maher say to slander Trig? What does his having Down's have to do with it? An extra detail to try to garner false sympathy, like Sarah is prone to do.

          • Maxie

            What is a Down's syndrome child doing in a "comedians" routine in the first place? Maher is a vile individual and as such perfectly suited suited to "amuse" his sicko Lefty fans.

          • Todd Beaucoudray

            I'm a paraplegic and laugh at cripple jokes. Don't be so pious as to dictate what's too taboo to laugh at. We are not people that cannot take a joke.

        • Joseph Klein

          Now, according to you, there is a "comedian" exception to the civility Obama has repeatedly called for while his super PAC gladly takes $1M from Maher, the "comedian?" Maher is part of the Lefty political class, an idiot who continues to defend his unfunny, misogynist remarks,which makes you an idiot for defending him. At least Limbaugh apologized for his remarks. And who said anything about voting for Santorum? It's another red herring of yours, especially since Romney will most likely be the Republican nominee, not Santorum.

          As for critical thought, that would take some basic intelligence which your comments indicate you sorely lack. And you are not funny either, so it is a waste of time to bother any further with your nonsense.

  • Rifleman

    Does this new sensitivity on the left mean their sl*twalks are cancelled? And where would the left be without their gimmicks and shake-and-bake outrages?

    • davarino

      Ya, I really love those prim and proper gay parades. So prudish

      • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QpgiYe6LToc Roger

        Can we start mostly naked 'straight' parades?
        Or call a white group 'the race' like 'La Raza' does?

        This double standard is getting really old.

  • StephenD

    "Thus, Fluke became a liberal hero …."
    And all our attentions are on this side show.
    Still we don't address the real issue. Forget the Religious objections for just a moment. Our real fight is on the premise that the Government can FORCE us to buy something. Where in the Constitution (designed to LIMIT the power of the Government) is it specified that the Government can force a citizen to BUY something simply because they live?
    I think this is an issue that can backfire and probably is put out there just for that purpose.
    When the Administration backs off from this and give exemptions, the Bishops, et al will suddenly rally around the balance of the bill and all will be well; except all isn't well. We are being FORCED to buy something just because we breathe. THIS is where our fight is and nowhere else on this issue.

    • jsh

      Sorry we lost that argument when we allowed the government to tell us what we may or may not buy! This is just then next step.

  • Meg

    Ann ! "pussified"? funny… Thats why we need leaders like Allen West and Christie…no more PC no more pussified men in DC. We are fighting for the survival of the republic…no more wimps . This is warefare.

  • BS77

    Support VOTER ID legislation….Remember to insist voters show a valid ID to vote!!! YOu need a valid ID to rent a rug shampoo machine. You need a valid ID to drive, to bank, to get a passport, to get on a jet….why not a valid ID to vote?

    • Maxie

      Because the MarxiCrats would lose about half their vote total if a valid ID had to be presented.

  • Frank

    It's hard to believe that no-one has characterized the Fluke affair as just a bit "Fishy".

    • stern

      Love it!

      • Amused

        yea , real fishy since if Rush didn't make his comment , no one would know her name .LOL….IDIOTS – ALL !

        • Libertyman

          Point proven – liberals have no sense of humor. Frank's comment was great – admit it.

        • LibertyMan

          LOL… If Rush didn’t say anything…. the fact that another rich theiving democrat is willing to steal my money would go unnoticed … your just mad because the thief was exposed

  • stern

    Best line in Ann's entire piece:
    "as if her haircut isn’t birth control enough"

    • Amused

      Oh yea , that's typical of Coulters mentality ….somewhere around 5th or sixth grade that is .

    • trickyblain

      Congrats on being the last person on earth to hear that re-re-re-re-re-recyclyed joke.

      • Maxie

        Yea, she, like Maher, shoulda worked something in about a crippled child or something you lefties think is really funny.

  • clarespark

    The Limbaugh-Fluke fracas inspired two blogs on my website: http://clarespark.com/2012/02/25/moral-atheists/, and http://clarespark.com/2012/03/03/sluts-and-pigs/ (renamed Limbaugh v. Fluke). Social conservatives won't like these, but libertarians might. I am very adamant about the need for good fathers in families where there are children.

  • clarespark

    I agree with Ann Coulter on the need for a good father in families. See http://clarespark.com/2012/02/25/moral-atheists/. Look on my index for my blog on Limbaugh v. Fluke.

  • Tanstaafl

    Like a law student can't walk across the street to the drugstore with out governmental assistance…..

  • Chiggles

    What I don't get is why any woman who is so obviously a rug muncher needs birth control in the first place.

  • Stephen

    Does this mean it's wrong to call Sarah Palin a c*nt?

  • BLJ

    Fluke is a dog. How could see possibly be worried about contraceptives?

  • Amused

    Well looks like my 30 year old theory – The Theory of Asssholes in the Universe , has been confirmed right here on these threads . Asssholes are propagating exponentially , and they are spread homogeniously throughout the Universe .That is, no matter where you look in the Universe you will find the same proportion of asssholes .The troubling part of the theory is their seemingly increasing numbers .You have 2 today , 4 tommorrow , 8 the day after , 16 the day after that etc . Soon the entire Universe will be clogged with asssholes . Thank you all gfor confirming my Theory …..and dont feel left out , I congratulated the Left too .
    However , I must give credit , where credit is due , must of you dunces DO get islam right , indicating at the least , a rudimentary primitive intelligence .

    • a guest

      "Thank you all gfor confirming my Theory ….."

      " I must give credit , where credit is due , must of you dunces DO get islam right , indicating at the least , a rudimentary primitive intelligence ."

      At least most of us here can write.

      • Amused

        oh , another assshat , look at your keyboard schmuck ….that's a typo . But using spellcheck wont help an idiot like you sound intelligent , it's what you say not how you spell it , that makes most of you parrots , the imbeciles that you are .. LOL….Coulter's proof of that .

    • Steeloak

      Seems to me that you are prima facie proof of your theory.

      • Amused

        you wouldn't know prima facie proof , if it fell out of a tree and hit you on the head . Runalong little boy with the little mind .

        • Steeloak

          Q.E.D.

  • Amused

    OH …and BTW Anne , I know you wont attempt a claim on virginity , so tell us , howe have you been avoiding pregnancy ? Abstinence ? LOLOLOLOLOL…….yea ok .

    • Nomadic100

      And your statement is supposed to mean? As far as I can tell, it means nothing.

      • Amused

        as far as YOU can tell ? uh yea , you respond according to yor own intellectual limits . I understand .

    • Todd Beaucoudray

      Exactly! A 40-something "Christian" with no kids is trying to convince us she's never had a sexual relationship with another man.

  • mrbean

    missy Fruke, you a hot babe. You want big stud Chinee boyflend? I also raw student ata Unverstay Mallyland. Meh soo hawnny! Meh so hawwwnnny! Meh ruv you rong time! Meh a numba wun frocky – socky! Meh ling you brell. You neber go back tah occidental!

    • Amused

      Another brilliant comment , from the all inclusive [in his racism and bigotry ] mr.BEANO , who infact is really Mr.Methane with plumbing reversed .

  • Amused

    For all you Rush junkies …consider this : a few months ago Obama dispatched about 100 military advisors to Africa to help bring down the sadistic maniac Joseph Koni and his ' Lord's Resistance Army " .I'm sure we can all agree that people like Koni have to go , no matter how you feel about obama . Well your boy Rush started spouting that Obama was sending US troops to kill "christians " in Africa . I guess maybe Rush isn't up to date with current affairs huh ? No not really , Rush is a f—-ng moron who doesn't think before he opens his pie-hole , OR WORSE , he knew what he was alleging and expected his army of idiots to believe it . And most of you bought into this POS .

    • BLJ

      You sir are an idiot.

      • Amused

        Deny , or refute what I just said ….FOOL .

    • mrbean

      Yassah, jus like dah Referend Wright dun taughted him fuh twnty yars as hims mentaw/. He still gots dah nongoeshable comittmant tah Africa, yassah.

    • Joseph Klein

      Did Obama bother to seek approval or even consult with Congress first? Of course not, since he thinks the Constitution is too old to worry about.

      • Amused

        Oh's that your argument ? You didn't even know that there were troops there ….it happened a month or so ago , and you have no idea of whether he did or didn't , nor whether it was required . You're just a broken record parrot , spitting out what you're spoon fed , and btw , you're getting your memorized talking points mixed up , which proves you have no ability to process information on your own ….that was a Supreme Court Justice who made that remark.

    • Don Kosloff

      Koni was brought down long before the advisors were sent.

  • Amused

    So go ahead juveniles , jump in behind Rush and coulter and make more juvenile remarks , it stand to reason Coulter and Limbaugh are simply ill-behaved juveniles in the bodies of adults .

    • mrbean

      Message to Amused. " You are ugly and you mommy dresses you funny! She even still makes you wear diapers"

      • Amused

        Very good mr.beano , spoken in the true vain and language of your many cohorts here ….bravo ….bravo !

    • Zionista

      betcha you'd LOVE to have the fame and fortune Rush enjoys – unlike a nobody like you…………

    • BS77

      More Rush, More Coulter…….less Amused and his whining.

      • Amused

        Two more Rush sycophants , and no , I have no desire for "Rush's riches " , nor his "fame " . But that is most likely the desires of the idiots that approve him.. lol…your role model …..in the meantime would either of you two dimbulbs care to REFUTE my statement ? Didn't think so ….because it's the truth about your "boy fatso " oxy pill popper ..LOL who BTW stated on his show , that ANY user of illegal drugs , should be thrown in jail .
        Oh what fools you two are !

    • RoguePatriot6

      "….it stand to reason Coulter and Limbaugh are simply ill-behaved juveniles in the bodies of adults ."__

      And Bill Maher, Obama (who today insulted some of the earlier (would be rivals), the author of "Rush Limbaugh is a Fat Idiot" are………………………………???????????????? Mature acting, civil adults? NOT!!!!!

  • Western Spirit

    This is just an Obama effort to inflame women against Conservatives and who ever they choose to represent them for president.

    It isn't working and hooray for our side. Hopefully they'll continue along this line.

    • Amused

      Obama effort ? How stupid are you ? Your hero Rush made it all happen with his big fat mouth .

      • Western Spirit

        Want to compare IQ's? Unless your IQ is above above average and way up there changes are you'll lose, Amused.

        The Left set this up in an effort to inflame women. End of story. And amused, what is so amusing about the truth?

  • sedoanman

    The whole affair was one big, a high-tech hiding behind their petticoats by all the feminists involved. Even Ms Iron Petticoat inserted herself into the fray. http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2012/03/glori

    Answer: ~ "Hot Lips" O'Fluke-A-Han' – - – Moore: Flim-Flam-'Obama-SCAM."

    Her politics, and personality IS Birth Control (enough) for those who would date her!

  • PAthena

    Miss Fluke deserves what Rush Limbaugh said about her. She insists that the taxpayers should pay for contraception for her sexual activities. She does not use the safest, and cheapest contraceptive – not engaging in sexual activities.

    • Nomadic100

      Who could ever reasonably expect her to do that?

    • Todd Beaucoudray

      Health insurance isn't the taxpayers.

    • BS77

      She may never have been "active" at all…she is just a shill for leftist causes.

    • kafir4life

      So her birth control is free, but if I spend 100 bucks on dinner and drinks for her, with the hopes of my sexual health being respected, does she have to comply? When will the gov't reimburse me for those sex related expense? Isn't Ms. Fluke obligated to put out when receiving gov't assistance in "that area"?

      • RoguePatriot6

        LOL!!!

  • Jim

    No wonder Ms. Fluke has such a burdensome contraceptive bill after all her her name rhymes with…..??? O Dear the word slips my memory.

    Not to make light of this weighty issue I think we should look into serious literature and reread " The Rape of the Lock"

  • Amused

    yea , that'll do it .

  • Amused

    Gee , what did I say that others haven't ?

  • Amused

    If someone has managed to stay child free into her 40's [Coulter] …one could rightly assume that contraceptives have played a role . Unless of course virginity is claimed or lifelong abstinence . Therefore the only difference between Coulter and Fluke is , that Flukes wants her insurance to pay for her contraceptives .

  • Amused

    So Rushes " description " applies to BOTH .

  • Amused

    Ok , I get it ….so this is a moral issue as it applies to sexual behavior …right ? Again the only difference between Coulter and Fluke , being a finacial one .

  • Amused

    AND WHAT ABOUT RUSH ? Three marriages – NO CHILDREN . That's three more women who fit Rush's "Fluke description " ….lolololol…..and what a role model . Draft dodger in the 70's , college dropout , drug user -whose money bought him 18 months of "drug rehab " instead of prison .This is who Coulter and the rest of you fools defend . Rush's fame and fortune do not change what this man is . Although to some of you , his big bucks are a sign of "success in life " …but that's typical of conservatives , it's all about money .So the issue really isn't about moral that NONE of you adhere to , but the "money aspect " of insurance paying for someone elses contracep[tives . LOL…clearly a matter of "look who's calling the kettle black ". Ok ..I get it .

    The fed has recently and again announced that states that don't comply with washingtons demands regarding teen driving, funding will be shut off. That's the problem with taking money from the gov't. You're expected to then be their b*tches. If Ms. Fluke accepts taxpayer funded birth control, shouldn't she be required to put out? THAT'S a mandate I can live with!!

  • David

    I would have put it a little differently but it comes down to the same thing; thou hadst a whore's, forehead, thou refusedst to be ashamed.

  • tedder

    Oh look Ann Coulter has posted a piece where comments, no matter how tactiful or respectful, that question her actions can't be censored by her editors and the writer banned, as it is on her web site. Nevertheless if you go there you see plenty of evidence that the disillusionment amongst her fans is virtually universal over her support for the moderate-liberal Romney. She told us to "get drunk and vote for McCain." Well why not for Romney? It was only six months ago that she was saying that "If we don't get Christy to run, we'll get Romney and he will lose."

    At CPAC she repeated, to interviewer Rusty Humphries, the moderate-Republican’s 20 year-old mantra that no conservative Republican can defeat a liberal Democrat, only a moderate can win. Coulter went on to say that if either Gingrich or Santorum received the nomination, that not only will Obama win handily, but the nation will react by sweeping Democrats into both Houses in a landslide.

    Since she is now convinced in the high negativity of conservatism, I'm through reading anything she writes and certainly buying her books. She has betrayed us.

  • Amused

    I would call it DUPED , not betrayed . Coulter knows when and where to toss the redmeat , and the little hungry fishies suck it up and shell out good money to buy her mindless books …..she's laughing all the way to the bank . Repocons are led by the nose ,and display classic herd mentality , all one need do to evoke the expected Pavlovian Response ….is to ring the bell . Yea Coulter knows huh ? I can predict elections after they're done too .

  • Amused

    And while you're all having your juvenile fun ,and maaking sophomoric statemennts regarding this Fluke tghing , whaty you are all too ignorant and opinionated to realize , is that this too is viewed as a representative view of the Republican party as when it comes to Limbaugh ,he is seen as your spokesman . In this the idiot Maher does not hold any water as a spokeman for anyone . Add to this the legislation going into effect in several states regarding vaginal insertions to preceede another medical proceedure , GSA being called Lesbians and Commies , Planned parenthood clinics being shutdown which provide breast cancer screening because of exagerated percentage of overall funding [ not federal according to existing law ] Abortions { only 3% } of their funds , ALL at the hands of REPUBLICANS ……man I doubt if ANY sane woman would vote for the Republican Ticket .

  • Amused

    The few loons you have on righty blogs are in no way representative of the general population of woman voters in this country .

  • Amused

    Sorry dirts but you are as dumb as dirt . Dumbassss conservatives like Rush , and his minions created and made this the issue that it is .

  • Western Spirit

    When people are unable to debate because they are supporting a false premise or are too mentally challenged they call names.

    Your posts are full of name calling. Which one are you?

  • Amused

    you tell me asssshole ….lololol

  • Western Spirit

    And once again the name calling a measure of your intelligence poor thing.
