Everyone has a special interest. You know how the game is played. If we werent allowed to hear from people with a special interest Capitol Hill would be a no speaking zone. If you demonize it when u dont agree with what is presented you you have no right to have any interests of your own. What's good for the goose......well you know.

So can Gov. Sarah Palin drag Bill Maher into court? He said even worse.


No because Bill Maher works on a private pay per view channel HBO.

Rush works on a free to listen to station.

Wow. Really?
So freedom of speech is dependent on where it is said. Got it. Freedom of speech is only free if it is on HBO or against conservatives.
As for Limbaugh's radio show?
Back in the day, we used to have off switches on our radio boxes.

Everyone, those who agree AND those who disagree, are you guys even aware Rush never called her a slut or prostitute? After discussing Sandra's plea for free birth control and the amount Sandra herself said women spend on BC in lawschool, $3,000, Rush posed 2 questions: Doesn't that make her a slut? Doesn't that make her a prostitute? That is all he did. Asked 2 simple questions. Never did he say Sandra Fluke is a slut and a prostitute. He asked what many people asked when they heard THREE THOUSAND DOLLARS. No slandering. No defamation. Just a man asking what kind of woman spends so much on BC during her time at a lawschool.

You speak the truth. Both sides are guilty of pointing fingers yelling "Look at what they did" while not doing the jobs they should be doing. These jokers run the country, but distract us all from noticing they run the country into the ground.

Come on now, when has reality ever thwarted the "I hate anything outside of my limited belief system" set?

There are always a bunch of people on these types of threads who want to post their own [media gleaned/political/religious/prejudiced/et al. influenced] Opinions on the subject, without actually first examining the evidence for themselves. It's a sad thing to see, but not surprising.

That HBO reasoning is not as convincing as the latest ShePAC video.

Your selective moral outrage is pathetic.

Look at the ShePAC video above and stop drinking the Obama cool-aid.

This has nothing to do with free speech and you know it.
No one told Rush he could not say what he said.
No one told Rush he would be punished for what he said.
Nowhere in the constitution are you given the right to a national radio audience.
Rush can say anything he wants still.
Whether I hear it or not is a different story.
You have a right to say things but not a right to have people listen.
You know better than this and it is kind of sick to see you so entrenched in your team sports that you toss all reality and logic out the window to defend the indefensible.

Do you honestly not understand the difference?


No, he stated his opinion.


No he actually told outright lies.
He said Fluke claimed she was having so much sex she could not afford it.
She never mentioned having any sex. She never said she could not afford to have sex.
He said she wanted tax payers to pay for her to have sex. She wanted her private insurance to cover medication. Nothing about sex came up but Rush gave details and "facts" and claimed she said them. These are lies.

Heard it. Heard it again. Heard it a few more times. Trust me, this is getting covered.



Again, "lie" is all in the perspective.


No it is not. When you proclaim something untrue as true, that is a lie. There is nothing subjective about it.
What world do people like you live in where it is ok to lie, as long as you can find a way to justify it to yourself?






No clue, I don't usually follow the news.


Yes he did and without pay.

Sorry Neo but I think it takes a bit more than 160,000 to be 1%.


Neo is very confused. He does not understand that as a student, she is not already a well paid lawyer, she is a student. These things trip him up a lot. He pulled that number out of his ass because he has no idea how much money she makes going to school.

Rush and the new blacklist

Pat Buchanan describes how offending PC culture 'gets you hauled before an inquisition'
Published: 10 hours ago
byPatrick J. BuchananEmail | Archive


The original “Hollywood blacklist” dates back to 1947, when 10 members of the Communist Party, present or former, invoked the Fifth Amendment before the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

The party was then a wholly owned subsidiary of the Comintern of Josef Stalin, whose victims had surpassed in number those of Adolf Hitler.

In a 346-17 vote, the Hollywood Ten (save one who recanted, Edward Dmytryk) were charged with contempt of Congress and suspended or fired.

The blacklist had begun. Directors, producers and writers who had been or were members of the party and refused to recant lost their jobs.

Politically, the blacklist was a victory of the American right.

In those first years of the Cold War, anti-communism and Christianity were mighty social, political and cultural forces. Hollywood acknowledged their power in what it produced.

Rhett Butler’s departing words to Scarlett O’Hara – “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn!” – were the most shocking heard on screen.

Catholicism was idealistically portrayed in “Going My Way” and “The Song of Bernadette.” Priest roles were played by Bing Crosby, Spencer Tracy, Gregory Peck.

But over a half century, the left captured and now controls the culture.

The Legion of Decency is dead. The Filthy Speech Movement from Berkeley 1964 has triumphed. The “seven filthy words” of comedians like Lenny Bruce and George Carlin are regular fare in films and steadily creeping into prime time.

Movies show sexually explicit scenes that make Howard Hughes’ 1944 condemned film, “The Outlaw,” starring Jane Russell, look like “Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm.”

Where Ingrid Bergman of “Casablanca” fame had to flee the country in 1950 after an adulterous affair with director Roberto Rossellini, the media today happily provide all the salacious details of every “relationship” Hollywood stars enter into and exit.

All of this testifies to the cultural ascendancy of the left.

Yet every establishment has its own orthodoxy, its own taboos, and its own blacklist. And, despite its pretensions to be open to all ideas, our cultural establishment is no different.

While the Hollywood Ten have been rehabilitated and heroized, it is Christians and conservatives who are in cultural cross hairs now.

Traditional Catholic morality is mocked, as are Southern evangelical Christians. And the new cultural establishment has erected a new regime called Political Correctness. It writes the hate-crimes laws that citizens must obey and the campus speech codes students must follow.

The new mortal sins are not filthy talk or immoral conduct, but racism, sexism, homophobia and nativism. The establishment alone defines these sins and enforces the proscriptions against them, from which there is no appeal, only the obligatory apology, the act of contrition and the solemn commitment never to sin again.

If you still believe homosexuality is unnatural and immoral and gay marriage absurd, you are a homophobe who is to keep his mouth shut.

If you think some ethnic and racial groups have greater natural athletic, academic or artistic talents, don’t go there, if you do not wish an early end to your journalistic career.

If you think illegal aliens should be sent home and legal immigration should mirror the ethnic makeup of the nation, you are a xenophobe and a racist.

All of these terms – racist, sexist, homophobe – are synonyms for heretic. Any of them can get you hauled before an inquisition.

To control the politics of a nation, control of the culture is a precondition. For who controls the culture defines what is moral and immoral, and what is heroic and villainous. And if you can set limits on what journalists write and broadcasters say, you can shape what people think and believe.

Through history, frightened establishments have dealt severely even with peaceful challenges to their power, which is why Socrates was forced to drink poison, Christ was crucified, Sir Thomas More was beheaded and Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn was sent to the Gulag.

When Rush Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke a “slut” for demanding that Georgetown Law School subsidize the $3,000 women students annually require for birth control to exercise their sexual freedom, the media that piled on Rush objected less to the term than to the target he picked: one of their own.

Bill Maher routinely uses far more odious terms on Sarah Palin. Yet his $1 million gift to an Obama super PAC was welcomed by agents of the same president who phoned Fluke to console her over Rush’s remarks.

Rush apologized. But the left still campaigns to have his voice stifled and censored, by threatening advertisers of his radio show with boycotts if they refuse to drop him.

Thus does the left honor the First Amendment.

As shown in HBO’s

As shown in HBO’s “Game Change,” John McCain in 2008 ruled out attacks on Barack Obama’s 20-year ties to the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the Chicago preacher of “God damn America!” fame.

Why? Wright and Obama were black, and such attacks might agitate the latent racism of white America. The Republican Party censors itself so as not to antagonize a cultural establishment that wants to see it dead.

“Beautiful losers,” my late friend Sam Francis called them.
