Limbaugh Calls Student “Slut;” Asks For Sex Tapes From All Women

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – South Florida conservative firebrand Rush Limbaugh has double-downed on vile language he used against a Georgetown University law student who was initially refused a chance to speak before Congress in support of employers being mandated to cover contraception.

Limbaugh had originally called the student, Sandra Fluke, a “slut” and a “prostitute.”

While that stirred up some, Limbaugh expanded on his original comments Thursday saying, “So miss Fluke and the rest of you feminazis, here’s the deal. If we are going to pay for your contraceptives and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch.”

But proving just how much of a stranglehold Limbaugh has over the members of the Republican Party, only a handful of GOP leader to date that have come out in opposition.

House Speaker John Boehner called the remark “inappropriate,” but immediately took a shot at Democrats who might try to fundraise off the remark.

GOP Presidential candidate Rick Santorum said Limbaugh is being “absurd” in his comments.

CBSMiami reached out to Senator Marco Rubio’s office, but didn’t receive a response on the issue.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and more than 75 Democratic lawmakers have called on Republican colleagues to condemn Limbaugh’s attacks. Still, Republicans fear the wrath of Limbaugh coming down on them and have not stepped out of sync with the conservative firebrand.

Fluke was blocked from testifying before an all-male Republican congressional panel discussing contraception and religious freedom. She later testified before the House Democratic Steering and Policy committee.

Fluke responded to Limbaugh’s crude comments late in the day Thursday saying:

“Unfortunately, numerous commentators have gone far beyond the acceptable bounds of civil disclosure. No woman deserves to be disrespected in this manner. This language is an attack on all women, and has been used throughout history to silence our voices. The millions of American women who have and will continue to speak out in support of women’s health care and access to contraception prove that we will not be silenced.”

Republicans have continued to push the issue of preventing insurers from covering contraception, but it’s an issue so far they’ve found little traction on. Polls show that a majority of Americans and even a majority of Republicans support the recent action by President Barack Obama to mandate insurance companies to cover the costs of contraception.

  2. Bruce says:

    Yet they cover Viagra for men, in essence encouraging over population and unwanted pregnancies.

    1. Liberalsuck says:

      Why should poor working people who cannot afford to go college pay for some silver spoon brat to have sex? Liberal hypocrisy at its best!

    2. Michael says:

      What a dumb comparision.,
      Viagra treats a medical condition erectile disfunction.

      Birth Control doesn’t treat a condition.

      Without Birth Control women can still have sex, without viagra men cannot have sex at all.

      You can make the argument that it isn’t neccessary but you can’t argue that the two are equitable.

      1. Tired of Repub Idiots says:

        Instead of Viagra and Birth Control, supply them with aspirin, is it not what the repubs want women to use?

  5. kathy says:

    Is this how he feels about all females in his family?

  6. Jerry Viola says:

    can you imagine this guy being our president. He fits the description of a male chauvinist pig.

    1. Waldo says:

      ..can’t do any worse than the one you elected.

  7. bobbyb says:

    And when he was abusing his prescription drugs I guess he didn’t use the insurance copay plan. Jay’s comment is perfect!

    1. Nell says:

      Hey Bobby –
      Rush is self-insured. He pays for everything out of his own pocket and doesn’t ask you for a dime.

  8. Fred says:

    It would be nice if the story actually reported what Miss Fluke said to prompt this comment. She said that she is having so much sex that she can’t afford to pay for birth control. The comments by Rush were over the top, but Miss Fluke is a bed warmer.

  9. Liberalsuck says:

    Rush for president!

  10. Disgusted says:

    Thank you, Rush Limbaugh, for showing the world just how VILE Conservatives have become!

  11. Fred says:

    When are liberals going to learn personal responsibility and stop forcing the rest of us to coddle them.

  12. Max Maxwell says:

    rush who????

  13. Doc says:

    So I will agree that Rush got too crude in his example, though it was accurate.

    Just to be clear … this is how I understand the law student to be staking out her position …

    That her law school education is expensive (assuming she wants that to be free) …
    That she wants to be sexually active and that I (a tax payer) should cover that cost for her contraception …
    That should the contraception fail, she wants me to pay for her abortion also …
    That if the abortion isn’t done … I should pay for the medical costs of the child …
    That when that child enters school … I should pay for their education and their breakfast and lunch …
    And eventually pay for their college education and their birthcontrol … back to the start of this list.

    As a man. I’m sorry, but no. The only man who should be paying those costs … is the guy she wants to be sexually active with.

  14. Ludwig says:

    The reporting in this article is either deliberately biased or remarkably incompetent. I listened to Limbaugh’s original broadcast on this subject and both the letter and the sense of his comments are badly misrepresented here.

  15. Bozzieb says:

    It’s embarassing to have Limbaugh living in my home state.

    1. Waldo says:

      His taxes are paying for your freebies.

  16. Dave Hunzie says:

    She should sue his ass off and that would be a lot of ass to sue!!! We talk about bullying problems in school and allow this guy to be on the radio. What is wrong with him. Maybe he has been abusing drugs again.

  17. jela says:

    the fluke woman must be either butt ugly or desperate, she can’t find a man that
    will pay for a trojan, how about hte hotel room do we taxpayers have to foot the
    bill too ???

  18. Wayne says:

    While Rush Limbaugh is accusing oral-contraceptive promoting Fluke of causing the public to improperly bear the cost of her orofice behavior, he himself is guilty of an oral diarrheal bilight being improperly leashed on the public due to his primary orofice behavior–being anal–(which is no fluke for him).

  19. Waldo says:

    The Dems threw a Fluke out for bait and Limbaugh took it. He has apologiized for calling a spade a spade. Touche’

  20. Ben Blackstone says:

    Doc you are a genius in your expert synopsis. Tottally accurate and side cracking.
