The GOP War on Women

Over the last few weeks the RNC, Fox/GOPTV, and Rush Limbaugh have all attempted to refute the existence of the GOP War on Women.   However, like any issue with the conservative cult, as they attempt to distance themselves from an issue the issue only becomes closer.   Below is a running list demonstrating the clear and undeniable GOP War on Women

  • Every GOP Senator voted AGAINST Equal Pay for Women Act
  • Every GOP Senator voted AGAINST Al Franken’s Anti-Rape Amendment
  • Every GOP member vote FOR Anti-Safe Abortion Legislation
  • Every GOP member vote FOR Blunt/Rubio Anti-Women’s Equal Health 
  • Coverage Amendment. While Blunt/Rubio Amendment does not allow employer to deny men employee health coverage for Vasectomy, the Blunt/Rubio Amendment allows Employer to deny female employees & female dependents: contraception, tubes tied, and hysterectomies.
  • GOP Redefine Rape
  • GOP write legislation to probe metal prongs up a woman’s vagina
  • GOP change legal term for victims of rape, stalking, and domestic violence to “accuser”
  • GOP write legislation that could make it legal to murder a doctor who provides abortion care. (South Dakota GOP)
  • GOP write legislation to cut nearly a billion dollars of aid to low-income pregnant women, mothers, babies, and kids.
  • GOP write legislation that would let hospitals allow a woman to die rather than perform an abortion necessary to save her life.
  • GOP write law cutting ALL funding for low-income kids saying “Women should really be home with the kids, not out working (Maryland)
  • GOP Cut Funding for Head Start by $1 Billion. 
  • Two-thirds of the elderly poor are women: GOP write Bill to CUT funding for employment services, meals, and housing for senior citizens. 
  • GOP Candidates for President vow and pledge to Cut Funding for Planned Parenthood.
  • GOP voted for a Amendment to cut all federal funding from Planned Parenthood health centers.
  • GOP write Bill to eliminate all funds for Federal Family Planning Program.
  • GOP Write Bill to Provide Contraception for wild horses but ENDS all Federal Funding for Family Planning, including contraception coverage.

Limbaugh’s Greatest Hits: A journey into a mind of a sick man

Crooks and Liars has a nice little summary about some of Rush Limbaugh’s previous classless attacks and smears.  So, I thought I would use their post as a starting point to catalog Limbaugh’s greatest hits over his “career”…..a “career” that is founded in hate, division, lies, smears, and slander.   I’ll continue to update this as I do more homework and as Limbaugh continues to be Limbaugh.  Enjoy!

Compared feminists to Nazis,

Called Chelsea Clinton “the White House dog,”

Told an African-American caller to “take the bone out of your nose,”

Promoted a song titled, “Barack the Magic Negro

Called the president a “Halfrican American,”

Limbaugh said Obama and the First Lady weren’t “decent Americans,”

Compared both President Obama and President Clinton to Hitler

Labeled veterans who opposed the Iraq War “phony soldiers,”

Dismissed Danica Patrick as a “woman driver,”

Suggested that all homosexuals are pedophiles

Called a private citizen a “slut” and a “prostitute“.

Ridiculed children who rely on school meals

Called the National Organization for Women “Nags

Called children who receive free school meals “wanton little waifs and serfs”

Said the NFL looked like a game between “the Blood and Crips

Claimed that people in the private sector are getting raped by this administration.

Limbaugh Loses First Station Over Sandra Fluke Smears!!!!

 

From the Star Advertiser in Hawaii:

The nationally syndicated Rush Limbaugh radio show has been pulled from Hilo radio station KPUA-AM 670 in the aftermath of his offensive remarks about a woman who spoke in favor of health plan coverage for contraception.

It may be the first radio station nationally to cancel airings of the program.

Redux: Limbaugh is a Scat Muncher

Before his death Comedian Bill Hicks provided some dark poetic commentary regarding Limbaugh (NSFW). Needless to say this commentary is just as relevant today as it was over 10 years ago. Timeless…

True Story: How Rush Limbaugh converted me from the Right to the Left

In the early 90s I briefly voted as a Republican.  In fact, the first time I ever voted was for GHWB.   At the time I was in the military and I was stationed in the South (i.e., a conservative hotbed).  I was very apolitical at the time and didn’t even know what it meant to be a “liberal” or a “conservative”.  I knew what I believed in and I knew what was batshit crazy.  In fact I was even called a “liberal” by friend of mine because I was helping his wife clear the dinner table, i.e., I was acting like a gentleman.  He meant it as an “insult”; I’d file that under the “batshit crazy” category.

Anyhow, many of the enlisted I served with were “fundamentalist Christians” and were obviously hardcore GOPers and Limbaugh dittoheads.  After they found that I voted GOP, they invited me to have lunch with them while we sat around listening to Rush for 60 mins during our lunch break.  Although I knew he existed, I never listened to Rush before but honestly I didn’t know much about him.  Well, it took < 5 minutes to realize 1) I have nothing in common with Rush, 2) he is really boring, 3) he is a habitual liar, and 4) he bitches a lot about nothing.  Over time and more exposure to conservatism my thinking evolved and I discovered that I have practically nothing in common with the modern GOP.  I discovered that conservatives are very obedient to authority figures and practically NEVER challenge anything they are told by such figures.   This was something very foreign to me and very contrary to my hardwired personality.

Needless to say that was the last time in my life that I ever voted GOP.   The next election was President Clinton’s re-election.  I was a civilian by then and was thrilled to vote for a man and a party that actually believed in logic, reason, and Americans.  In summary, Rush Limbaugh helped convert me from a narrow-minded right-wing zealot to a free thinking Lefty.  Thanks, Rush!
