It's pretty amazing to watch all this play out. This is exactly what I was talking about last week when I said that liberals attempt to use the virtue of conservatives against them. It's all-out war to liberals in the political world, and no contradiction is too brash for them to use. No trickery is too much, no double standard too obvious. And the sad thing is that conservatives let them get away with it. I'm looking at this fake outrage about Rush Limbaugh's comments and I'm shaking my head.
There's just no way - no way - that these liberals who are acting so offended are really offended. How many worse things than "slut" do they say about conservatives on a daily basis? Just do a quick Google search on some of the names liberal talkers have called conservatives just in the last six months and you'll see what I mean: racist, bigot, homophobe, terrorist. No way they are really upset or offended by Rush's comments. No way.
But they feign outrage. They call this Georgetown woman a "young girl" as though she's 8. She's a thirty year old woman for crying out loud. And they just go on and on about how awful and terrible and reprehensible Rush's "attack" was and I'm just sitting here saying, "There's no way conservatives are going to fall for this, are they?" Conservatives, don't let it happen. Don't fall for this. Boehner already did. He's already come out and said how inappropriate Rush's comments are. Notice liberals never do this. When have you seen Pelosi or Obama distance themselves from something Bill Maher or Chris Matthews or Mike Malloy have said? Malloy has called for conservatives to be murdered. Matthews has called Newt the devil. And I don't even need to broach the Maher topic.
Look at this story we had last week of what they said about a 14 year old Christian girl who testified against gay marriage. You've got liberals shouting about how they hope she gets raped by her parents and dies. So don't tell me that they've got all these fragile sensibilities about a 30 year old being labeled sluttish.
That's why this whole tendency of conservatives to fall over themselves saying how inappropriate Rush's comments were - it's just a classic liberal tactic in their war against conservatives to divide us and conquer. And we let them get away with it.
Listen, I can't stress this enough: what is offensive about this whole story is NOT what Rush Limbaugh said. What's offensive is the idea that responsible people in society should be forced to pay for the irresponsibility of others. What's offensive is this chick sitting there in front of Congress telling them how they should write laws that force others to pay for her and her friends' recreational sex habit. That's what's offensive, conservatives! The fact that Rush Limbaugh used a label for what the woman was describing is not offensive. Don't be distracted by that. It's what the left always does, and they are so much better at it than we in the conservative movement are. We let our virtue be used against us. Don't let that happen.
I'm not saying I would use the term. I wouldn't. I think there's no reason to personally insult someone. But you know what else I wouldn't do? I wouldn't sit in front of a Congressional panel and tell them I and my friends have a ton of extra-marital sex and want others to pay for it. That's what is offensive. That's what should have us all worked up. The media knows that. They are aware of it. So this is distract, divide and conquer. Don't let it work.
