Just throw the damn hammer, wingers!

I don’t BELIEVE this week — this week of ALL weeks, when we’re eulogizing gleeful bomb-tosser Andrew Breitbart — there are commenters on the Right who found it necessary to scold Rush Limbaugh for using the word “slut.” (And no, I’m not happy he apologized).

Let’s review some basics, shall we?

■ If your name is not Rush Limbaugh, you are not responsible for anything Rush Limbaugh says. You do not ever have to apologize for things other people do. Even people on “your side.” That’s Individualism 101.

■ “Slut” is not a shocking word. You can say it on TV. Chaucer used it, for god’s sake. Your mom probably read it in her Advanced Placement English course. It’s a deadly insult (to most) but it is not a shocking profanity.

■ A year ago, the feminist Left embraced the word “slut” all around the world and carried banners proclaiming themselves sluts…and now hearing the word gives them the vapors? Pff!

■ A distraction? Really? So if Rush hadn’t said “slut” we’d have spent the last week talking about taxes or gas prices or all the other stuff we want to talk about and they don’t?

No. HELL no. They’d have found something else to knock us off message. Anything at all will do. Members of the media and the institutional Left leap out of bed every morning screaming, “WE AM RUBBER, TEABAGGERS AM GLUE! RAAAAARRRRRR!”

Stop apologizing, Righties, and THROW THE FUCKING HAMMER!

Demands are being placed on a US talk host, Kim Komando, who simply shares some of the same advertisers as Rush to drop her advertisers. Cut her own throat, to please who I am just about to start calling future enemy KIA of the Second American Civil War.

I know it sounds hyperbolic, apocalyptic, what have you, but let’s just skip past the hammer and start registering supporting fire. I’m tired of this shit.

Yeah, it’s sickening that we’re being lectured on civility from people who have been giddy for a week at the death of a 43 year old man with four kids.

Fuck ’em.

Rush should have apologized right after Bill Maher, Ed Schultz, and Keith Olberman, to name a few misogynist pinko heroes, all of whom are on record calling women far more vile things than “slut,” made their apologies to the outraged feminists, which is to say, never. Besides, have you seen how many shows Fluke has been prostituting herself on since this broke? She’s a media slut, if nothing else.

Those 4 letters aren’t a word, they are an acronym for Snotty Liberal Utero-Terrorist.

Much like that other acronym Can’t Understand Normal Thinking, which shouldn’t be gender specific, but is misused as such.

I’m trying to figure out how I can approach truly African-American friends of mine and persuade them not to vote for this poseur, who threatens to destroy even MLK’s dream, in which a man (or woman) is judged not by the color of his (her) skin, but by the content of his (her)character. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

Had to get Ol’ Stoaty to explain that hammer reference to me.

Sorry, folks. I watched the ad and just laughed. Apple riffing on 1984 when it is Big Brother?

Eric Blair must be spinning.

But ‘slut’? – I entirely agree. It happens here, too – Leftist pigeons strutting around with puffed-up chest feathers at what they deem to be ‘insults’.

They don’t own the agenda.

Yeah, I thought of the ad too. Just about anyone over a certain age in the US would I’d guess. Remember Uncle B. back in 84 when this ran Apple was virtually nobody and IBM was everything.

God bless you, Stoaty, for saying it so well. My thoughts are:

Where do we get off sending our best and brightest into a fierce battle and then seek to micromanage their weaponry? As long as they’re aiming at the opponent, who cares if it misses the mark slightly? The noise alone will frighten some out of their hiding.

Either we get dirty in the fray, get smart in the triangulations, and get ahead of the asymmetrical curve or we can stop with all the righteous indignation at those who would do so.

No wonder Breitbart took every opportunity to rally the punk-Republican kids. As he said, “they’ll dress up like pimps and prostitutes.”

“Stop raping people!” was outrageous. Far worse than, “slut.” He maligned the OWS crowd to their face. Purposefully.

I don’t expect a warrior, at home, to act like he’s in the middle of a fire-fight. I expect him to teach his children civility, plain speech, respect, and clear thinking.

But if I do send him to war, I expect that same warrior to get the job done. And I will support him 100%. No points off for rusty target practice or unintended consequences. You take the bad with the good and go back out and DEFEAT your opponent.

Ya know, I don’t know if I can top what has already been said here. Ms. Fluck (as pronounced by Obamas press secretary) seems to have a fine future ahead of her as the spokesmodel for GEORGETOWN GIRLS GONE WILD, and I hear that Larry Flint is offering her a GREAT role under the porn name KEERA NIGHTLY.

Personally, I think that anyone that needs THAT MUCH birth control probably doesn’t have a vagina anymore, she has a Slip and Slide. But hey, what do I know.

Anywho, her current talent scout, the Clown Princess of Botoxistan, seems to be having a field day turning her into Obamas Monica Lewinski, so I doubt that this is going to go away for at least a week or two.

But that’s OK, Rush has announced that he has new advertisers lining up to replace the ones who don’t want his listeners business anymore….. 😉

PS – If you want some GOOD news from this week so far, a federal district court judge (4th Circuit) yesterday found the concealed carry law of the Peoples’ Republic of Maryland unconstitutional. Money quote from the ruling?

“A citizen may not be required to offer a ‘good and substantial reason’ why he should be permitted to exercise his rights.” Rather, “The right’s existence is all the reason he needs.”

Perhaps the most sensible statement I’ve heard out of a US federal official in my entire lifetime.

I thought everyone knew the Apple ad. Shows how old I am (I’ve been using Macs since 1984).

More damage is done by unnecessary apologies than any putative offence caused in the first place. If Limbaugh had stuck to his guns, how many real listeners would he have lost? The advertisers that pulled out are already suffering a backlash and will probably come to regret it. The genius of Breitbart was that he realised how much he could get away with. There’s a big difference between decency and being lily-livered.

Comment from Formerly known as Skeptic
Time: March 6, 2012, 3:17 pm

What Rush apparently failed to stress is that the disparaging reference to her character is entirely based on her own testimony as to her annual expenditures for birth control which suggests promiscuity. Properly, it should be phrased as, “Is she a liar or a slut?” Thus, it is properly exposed that the one who raised the issue of her promiscuity is Ms. Fluke herself.

Of course none of that matters one whit, since the left and the media (but I repeat myself) will misinterpret and obfuscate to their hearts content to drive the desired narrative anyway!

Comment from AliceH
Time: March 6, 2012, 3:59 pm

I don’t think I saw the original ad IN 1984 (no TV), but there have been dozens of parodies.

Here’s a link to one from Obama’s 2007 primary battle wherein Hillary is BigBrother. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6h3G-lMZxjo

The original ad ran only once, at Super Bowl time. That was part of the buzz. Remember there was no YouTube then, no way for the thing to go viral, they spent a bzillion making it and ran it only once.

It caused quite a stir.
