Rush Limbaugh Launches “Rush Babes” To “Fight Back” Against NOW

Rush Limbaugh Launches “Rush Babes” To “Fight Back” Against NOW

Saddened by the lost attention and headlines he had gained after the controversy surrounding calling law student Sandra Fluke a slut for advocating for no co-pay birth control, conservative talk radio icon Rush Limbaugh is trying to grab a new media cycle, this time by complaining that the National Organization for Women (NOW) is after him.

To “fight back,” Limbaugh has created his own group: “National Organization for Rush Babes,” which he says is dedicated to “the millions of conservative women who know what they believe in: family, American Values, and not being told by Faux Feminist Groups how to think.”

“The Democrats, Media Matters, Obama, the left, the NAGs, are on this faux War on Women, where Republicans want to take away their contraception…But I know and you know that this whole War on Women thing is a joke and a distraction, get people not paying attention to Obama’s dismal economic policies and their results. And I have — I’ve been tired a long time of these faux female groups which are really nothing but groups of liberals.”

NOW President Terry O’Neill isn’t terribly scared about the prospect of Limbaugh winning over women.  “I don’t think conservative women want to associate themselves with his hate. I don’t think they would want to associate themselves with his bullying,” O’Neill said to Politico. “I don’t think conservative women would want to associate themselves with his vitriolic attacks.”

LOL! Rush Babes.LMFAO! He so out of touch. Did he just watch Wayne's World or something?

All it would take is for all of Limbaugh's ex-wives to join and they'd have a huge organization!

Paul B., I remember my history and there were MANY people in Germany that thought Hitler was their savior. I think you are under the same kind of delusion. However you are right because there is a lot of anger for this man. After awhile even the pacifist will stand up and fight back.

OH and before you ask, YES I compared him to HITLER because Hitler was and Rush is "Nuttier" than a fruitcake.

Rush lied, or didn't bother to get the right story, to get his minions riled up about Sandra Fluke. She was not asking for free pills so she could have sex. She testified on behalf of a classmate who needed them for hormone therapy for a medical condition. It wasn't covered under her health insurance, like Rush's Viagra would be. You have to pay premiums to have health insurance. Nobody was asking anyone to pay them to have sex. The "free" part was about co pays on top of premiums. Since almost all women ignore the church's no birth control rule I think they are trying to force compliance by refusing to include it even in non Catholic's health insurance.

I made a video about why abortion should be easily available, and free for any woman that wants one. It’s at my YouTube channel Zarrakan, and here’s the link:

Watch it, share it, and join the fight against the evil anti-abortionists.

No "Babe" is ever gonna agree to have sex with a pig face, drug addict, lard @^#, tiny weinered puke like Rush, even if he put a bag over his entire body. If I were desperate and starving,
I would kill myself before I would ever let Rush or any of his fat pig Rethug Nazi cronies touch me
cause I have real "family values". TBaggers are stupid and insane and the whole world knows it.

thanks for posting this article

"Sluts" and "Babes" are BOTH words with, commonly in English, SEXUAL connotations.
"Sluts" are women who have sex, women whom you [men] HATE, you DISapprove of.
"Babes" are women who have sex, good-looking women who you think might potentially have sex with YOU, so you sortof tentatively "approve" of them.
Rush Limpballs opposes the one term to the other. Women he "likes" and women he "hates".
But BOTH words, are referring to A WOMAN'S SOCIAL RELATIONSHIPS, HER SOCIAL "STANDING", IN TERMS OF HER SEXUALITY; HER PARTICIPATION IN SEXUAL INTERCOURSE AND HOW HER SEXUALITY MAKES MEN FEEL, AND NOTHING ELSE.

BOTH terms are DEMEANING: even if you "like" the Babe and "hate" the Slut.
Sure, you could call a pal or a lover, a "Babe" or even a "Slut" in a friendly, "endearing" way IN PRIVATE.
But in Public -- these are NOT WORDS THAT WOMEN WILL STAND FOR.
I guarantee there WON'T be, oh, "Professional Women for Rush", "Women With Higher Education for Rush", or anything like THAT!
