Rush Limbaugh on Sandra Fluke

"So, Ms. 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 for it. And I'll tell you what it is. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch...." - Rush Limbaugh on Sandra Fluke after she testified on behalf of making contraceptives available to women. Rush also called Sandra a "slut" and a "prostitute."

"Defeating the empire is not something that occurs only on the literal battlefield. It is also something that is determined throughout the continuum of battles over many issues, including: ideas; philosophy; forms of organization and leadership in economy, politics, and other realms; ways of arguing; ways of responding to and respecting empirical data; interest in truth as opposed to expedience; how people and the environment should be treated; the nature of relations among people (e.g., between women and men, different races and ethnicities, rich and poor countries, etc.); ways of responding to criticism and ideas that are not your own; ways of handling one’s own errors and those of others; and more, all the way up through how warfare is carried out. The contrast between the methods and goals of the neoliberals and those of us who seek an entirely different world is stark." (Globalization and the Demolition of Society, Pp. 326-7)

i remember when this came out, and i couldn't believe that just because a women wants to control her own body, shes a slut. "Men" like Rush just want to have power over everything and even women.
