christian hypocrisy on rush limbaugh

Discussion in 'Politics & Religion' started by Free Thinker, Mar 8, 2012.

  1. Right Wing Watch makes an important argument about the lack of response from religious right groups that are forever condemning anything that smacks of sexual immorality in the media. Yet they’ve stayed completely silent as Rush has called a woman a slut and a prostitute and demanded that she make videos of herself having sex for him to masturbate to.

    So why haven’t they condemned Rush for his masturbatory fantasies? Because he’s on their side, of course, so that makes it all okay.

    When Will Moral Busybodies Condemn Rush?

    Right Wing Watch makes an important argument about the lack of response from religious right groups that are forever condemning anything that smacks of sexual immorality in the media. Yet they’ve stayed completely silent as Rush has called a woman a slut and a prostitute and demanded that she make videos of herself having sex for him to masturbate to.

    The Media Research Center criticized everyone from Perez Hilton and Gossip Girl to the cast of Jersey Shore for using the word “slut,” but after right-wing talk show host tagged law student and women’s rights advocate Sandra Fluke as a “slut” and a “prostitute,” the group that claims to stand up for “people and institutions that hold traditional values” has repeatedly come to Limbaugh’s defense. MRC’s Scott Whitlock said NBC’s depiction of Limbaugh’s sexist remarks as “ugly” represented “a left-wing attack” and Brent Baker dubbed coverage of Limbaugh’s rant a “left-wing effort to impugn and silence Rush Limbaugh.” The American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer and Liberty Counsel’s Matt Barber even tweeted in defense of Limbaugh, Barber even saying that Limbaugh “showed class.” …

    Concerned Women for America, which describes itself as committed to promoting “decency” in the media, has been completely silent about Limbaugh’s tirade. But the group is happy to post a statement regarding the talk show host’s praise for CWA, along with claims about the supposedly sexist treatment of Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin by the media.

    Focus on the Family considers the word “slut” a profanity and blamed “hip-hop/rap culture” for making it “become acceptable and even in vogue to be called a ‘slut,’” and urged people to stop buying music with words like “slut” that “objectify women.” But the organization still hasn’t commented on Limbaugh’s misogynist rants.
    So why haven’t they condemned Rush for his masturbatory fantasies? Because he’s on their side, of course, so that makes it all okay.

  2. Sounds like the exact same reason why no one on the left calls out Ed Schultz or Bill Maher.

    Rush shouldn't have called her names, he should have called her out for being a paid liberal shill and thrown some light on the whole orchestrated circus. However he has apologized unlike any of the liberal MSM mouth pieces that had no problem in calling conservative women every name in the book.

    Sorry the hypocrisy is openly displayed by the left.

    Rush should stick with the facts, expose Fluke for what she is and then call for a boycott by his audience on any advertiser that supports her cause.

  5. in order to determine if "hypocrisy is openly displayed by the left"we need a test case. what would christians do if the tables were turned and something was said that offended them. would they stand up for free speech? hardly:

    Philadelphia Cream Cheese has decided to pull its advertising from 'GCB,'" a Kraft rep told TMZ. "We have received a few complaints from consumers and their opinions about our advertising are important to us."

    Based on the book "Good Christian Bitches" by Kim Gatlin and starring Kristin Chenoweth, Annie Potts and Leslie Bibb, ABC's "GCB" (Sundays at 10 p.m. EST) has been met with controversy ever since its pilot stage. The show was produced using the book titled, but was tweaked to "Good Christian Belles" before simply being called "GCB." The acronym title proved to be a challenge while promoting the new nighttime soap.

    Prior to its premiere, "GCB" riled religious groups, and continues to do so. In April 2010, before the show was even ordered to series, critics started bemoaning the name.
