Feminazis’ Open Letter To Rush Provokes 70s-Style Conservative Backlash

by Kaia Mursi

Eh, throw in the books while you're at it.Scientists may someday discover the parasite that manipulates conservative brains into vomiting up punchlines from ’70s-era “The Lighter Side Of….” cartoons whenever the word “feminist” is mentioned within a 400-yard radius. (You’ll know we’re close to a cure when John McCain, out of nowhere, starts fretting about just how much these parasite paternity lawsuits are costing the gubmint.) But, until the science is finally settled, conservatives will continue to enter a hazy and scary pre-disco fugue state in which Vietnam is still winnable whenever feminazis pen open letters to bloated women-hating AM radio deejays. More data after the jump!

From Mediaititeis:

Jane Fonda, Gloria Steinem and Robin Morgan [are] calling for Limbaugh’s show to be taken off the air, because although he may be “constitutionally entitled to his opinions,” they argued that he was not entitled to express them on the radio.

And so the conservative bat signal lights up the night sky, summoning the most dated possible references to take down these mouthy women’s libbers! Come Donner, come Maidenform, come Ho Chi Minh!

Most important event in American history.

Big Journalism, you're swimming in it.

Yeah, that looks about right. [Fox Nation/Mediaite]

Yes, why don't bra burning liberal women come to the defense of conservative women who just want to put men in charge of women's health, welfare and reproduction. Why oh why?

Lynne March 12, 2012 at 3:57 pm

Because we hate bras and don't wear them…silly. Oh, that wasn't the point, was it? It's not our fault if conservative women want to be strapped in (by bras and conservative men). They're doing what they choose to do…oh, there's that awful word again….

comrad_darkness March 12, 2012 at 4:00 pm

The only nice thing about bras is removing them.

If you know what I mean…

Lynne March 12, 2012 at 4:05 pm

Absolutely.

Generation[redacted] March 12, 2012 at 4:45 pm

Allow me to offer my support.

miss_grundy March 12, 2012 at 9:00 pm

If conservative women are too dang stupid to stand up for their rights, then screw 'em. These chicks are truly stupid and are willing to do anything to get a man, even if the man isn't worth a darn cent. Like those chicks who like to be beards for money, social status or for a Cadillac.

Arken March 12, 2012 at 3:45 pm

Because burning your bra is not eco-friendly and the Feminazis are also filthy tree-hugging hippies. I mean duh.

Swampgas_Man March 12, 2012 at 6:47 pm

"Hugging" trees is NOT protected by most modern forms of contraception!

FROTHY March 12, 2012 at 8:58 pm

What about hugging Teh Blahz? You know, like our Pretzeldunce Barry So-Toro? Didn't he hug some Blah or teh uvver? Is that protected? Will that precious hug-fetus be torn apart by the cruel laughter of feminazis?

nounverb911 March 12, 2012 at 3:45 pm

They should have left Hasselbeck on the island.

They probably think that feminists won't shave their legs, armpits or groins too.

ManchuCandidate March 12, 2012 at 3:47 pm

Perhaps the reason why femininazees don't burn their bras when conservative women are attacked is because they're saying the same stupid shit that their fat ugly male counterparts are saying. Nobody likes a collaborationist.

Naked_Bunny March 12, 2012 at 6:17 pm

Since conservative women use contraception and get abortions, feminists are defending them, in spite of their collaboration with the oppressors.

FROTHY March 12, 2012 at 9:00 pm

Good point. (Damn, why didn't *I* think of that?)

redarmyzombie March 13, 2012 at 3:13 am

You know, this sorta reminds me of the town hall meeting I went to during the health care "debate".

The whole room was chock full of teabaggers heckling our congressman, who tried in vain to hold a reasoned conversation with them. After nearly an hour of being shouted down, he he asked, "Okay, how many people are opposed to government, run healthcare?" Nearly every arm in the room flies up. "Okay, now how many people here have medicare?" Again, nearly every hand in the room was raised. "Now, how many of you are satisfied with it?" Every one of the dumb b@stards had their hand in the air. He concluded with "Thank you, that was all I needed to know."

Oh, the dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb irony…

FROTHY March 13, 2012 at 4:19 am

Indeed. Or all those wonderful vets, who, when you get to talking with them, they're full of "the gummint this," and "the gummint that," and none of it any good, of course, till you ask them where they get their health care and then it's all, well, the VA is great, long as they let you in, they'll even give you free Viagra. It's all one can do to keep from choking the living shit out of them, the stupid fucks.

PuckStopsHere March 12, 2012 at 3:47 pm

And to think Rush was a mere anal cyst away from being gunned down by Jane Fonda!

hagajim March 12, 2012 at 4:38 pm

I'd just say Rush is an anal cyst period. And a pussy one at that. And I'd have said that way before the whore slut comments.

redarmyzombie March 13, 2012 at 3:13 am

Oh, what may have been…

Chillatte March 12, 2012 at 3:47 pm

Liz Hasselbeck's commentary is as accurate her husband's passing record. If it wasn't for the remote's mute button, she'd be unfappable.

Swampgas_Man March 12, 2012 at 6:49 pm

Can't understand why they dumped Rosie O'Donnel instead of Hasselback.

ChernobylSoup March 12, 2012 at 3:47 pm

I'd still do Fonda before I'd do Hasselbeck.

coolhandnuke March 12, 2012 at 3:52 pm

Henry or Peter?

ChernobylSoup March 12, 2012 at 3:59 pm

Jane. And I'm with the other commenters here who say Jane, Gloria, and Robin don't need to be saying who does and does not have a right to speak on the radio.

prommie March 12, 2012 at 4:01 pm

Yeah, that was ridiculous, and the three of them joining together like that, as if anyone gives a fuck what they have to say. Pompous, ponderous, fucking ponderous, man.

Maman March 12, 2012 at 3:48 pm

Are they really still calling her Hanoi Jane? Am I stuck in some 1970s wormhole? If so why aren't I 6 again?

BaldarTFlagass March 12, 2012 at 4:07 pm

I still see the occasional "I'm not Fonda Hanoi Jane" bumper sticker on a pickup truck, down here in darkest Central Texas. Haven't seen one in a couple years, though; I imagine that might change now.

Biff March 12, 2012 at 8:46 pm

I recommend staying the hell out of the VFW hall, then.

BaldarTFlagass March 12, 2012 at 3:48 pm

Tits or GTFO, Rush Jane.

KeepFnThatChicken March 12, 2012 at 3:57 pm

She's like, eighty. Be careful what you wish for.

BaldarTFlagass March 12, 2012 at 4:02 pm

Have you seen a pic of her lately? Better living thru cosmetic surgery, or whatever.

KeepFnThatChicken March 12, 2012 at 4:05 pm

Liberal I may be, but I don't google jane fonda boobs for any variety of reasons… probably for the same reason I don't google camille paglia hooters, rachel maddow twins or katy perry threesome.

Okay, okay. The last two one, maybe.

SoBeach March 12, 2012 at 4:27 pm

"Liberal I may be, but I don't google jane fonda boobs…"

Well, my search history is tracked only by google, and not google PLUS my employer, so I'll help you out.

That search will fetch you get some pretty decent shots of a young and comely Fonda wearing either some kind or space outfit or leotards.

You're welcome.

FROTHY March 12, 2012 at 9:25 pm

Um, Rush's tits have been available for, like, forEVAH, dood.

elviouslyqueer March 12, 2012 at 3:49 pm

Oh poor, sweet, dumber-than-shit Elizabeth. Darling, the only reason why people pay attention to you is because they fantasize about you one day torching your double-D boulder holders on camera.

FROTHY March 12, 2012 at 9:26 pm

Even *then,* it's not like they're actually paying attention to any of the shit she *says,* dood.

Puffperney March 12, 2012 at 3:49 pm

Jane always screws up every good cause she chooses to get involved in.

Yes, Rush does have the right to express his views on the radio; thanks for giving the women haters a legitimate "liberal assault on the constitution" leg to stand on. Thanks a lot.

Arken March 12, 2012 at 3:51 pm

The Vietnam War was decades ago. She later said that she was stupid and naive and regretted what she did. Plenty of people get forgiven of worse things than her. Can she never, ever express anything about even something as basic as this because of it?

memzilla March 12, 2012 at 3:54 pm

Yeah, it's not like there was ever an alcoholic coke-head who served as president who was "forgiven" by the wingtards.

tessiee March 12, 2012 at 5:31 pm

Who, iirc, was also against the Vietnam War; at least to the extent of having Daddy pull strings to get him out of it.

SorosBot March 12, 2012 at 3:56 pm

Nope; not in wingnut land.

Puffperney March 12, 2012 at 4:12 pm

Arken, I don't disagree with you. Still, were I her confidante, I would tell her to remember that every time she gets involved in a cause the old "sitting on an AA gun" thing is going to be thrown into the mix. I don't think it will ever go away; too many people won't let it.

Arken March 12, 2012 at 4:15 pm

I think you're wrong and it will go away. I think most people under 40 when they hear about Jane Fonda think, if they even know who she is at all, 'the aerobics lady that married Ted Turner.'

Puffperney March 12, 2012 at 4:20 pm

Yes, given enough time, it will probably go away.

SorosBot March 12, 2012 at 4:23 pm

Well what else did she ever do besides that aerobics stuff and marrying Ted?

prommie March 12, 2012 at 3:49 pm

Conservative bitches should just shut up and make me a sammitch! Empowered liberal women should not be subjected to be sexist, insulting and degrading comments on the public airwaves! Fucking situational ethics for the win!

tessiee March 12, 2012 at 5:32 pm

"Conservative bitches should just shut up and make me a sammitch!"

Wouldn't that fit right in with the traditional values they can't seem to shut up about?

sewollef March 12, 2012 at 6:52 pm

Sadly, most undergrads in this country will have no clue what your comment means. But yes, I think left alone people might — might — forget about Hanoi Jane.

And by people, I of course DON'T mean so-called journalists of shit tabloids masquerading as newspapers. They will NEVER forget. Stories like that get handed down, from generation to generation of pompous assholes, who write monosyllabic stories for crackers in Texas.

anniegetyerfun March 12, 2012 at 3:49 pm

I would venture to say that she displays less intelligence than most daytime talk show hosts.

smitallica March 12, 2012 at 3:49 pm

Well Elizabeth, feminists don't burn their bras when conservative women are attacked because feminists see conservative women as part of the problem. Now dance for me, sweet tits.

SoBeach March 12, 2012 at 4:05 pm

That link shows why Limbaugh's shtick only works on the radio, with a vigilant producer's finger hovering over the dump button.

FROTHY March 12, 2012 at 9:36 pm

Plus, let's be honest about it: he's got a face (and body) made for radio. Them wimminzfolks won't listen to the shit he spouts at their husbands, mostly, but if they had to look at his fat ugly cigar-smoking mug while he haw-hawed about their pussies, you can bet your sweet mother-fucking, father-diddling ass the Teev would be turned off in one hot minute and the HoneyDo list would be dominating the next ten.

redarmyzombie March 13, 2012 at 3:32 am

I bet you when their man picks up the list, the only thing scrawled on it are the words "Get it out get it out get it out" in a continuous stream.

OK, not. Not at all. Dipstick.

"Scientists may someday discover the parasite that manipulates conservative brains…"

Only if they use colonoscopes.

KeepFnThatChicken March 12, 2012 at 3:51 pm

This is a false dichotomy. The question is not "Should Limbaugh stay on the air or get booted off?" The question is, "Is Limbaugh a scatmuncher, or a fraudulent asshole?"

prommie March 12, 2012 at 4:56 pm

All of them, Katie.

anniegetyerfun March 12, 2012 at 3:52 pm

For the record, I personally believe that Rush Limbaugh is constitutionally allowed to say whatever he wants, wherever he wants, however he wants. Now, if sponsors don't want to pay for him to say it, well, that's their free speech right as well.

I sincerley hope that Steinem et al aren't really advocating against free speech, even when its the hateful bigots like Limbaugh doing the speaking. Because that's not really helpful on any level.

actor212 March 12, 2012 at 3:55 pm

Yea, that seems to be the way this is getting spun, to be sure. Steinem et al ought to know better. It's not like they're wet behind the ears or anything like that.

swordfis March 12, 2012 at 3:57 pm

Yes indeedy.

TheGyrus March 12, 2012 at 4:18 pm

Its possible that the conservatives may have given us an inaccurate characterization of whatever was that was written in the editorial.

But they didn't provide a link, so I guess we will just have to take their word for it.

proudgrampa March 12, 2012 at 4:35 pm

Limbaugh can speak all he wants; I don't gptta listen to him.

An_Outhouse March 12, 2012 at 5:57 pm

Technically we own the air waves so to some extent I think they are correct. If he is 'deserving' of a radio time slot then where is mine? He is welcome to mumble to himself on a street corner somewhere.

Goonemeritus March 12, 2012 at 3:53 pm

I don’t think a remake of Barbarella staring Rush would be as popular as the original.

swordfis March 12, 2012 at 3:58 pm

Au contraire.

Conservatives are sick fucks, so you never know.

tessiee March 12, 2012 at 5:38 pm

I don't even think a remake of Barbarella starring Hasselbeck would be as popular as the original.

FROTHY March 12, 2012 at 9:40 pm

It's a year that ends with December so shouldn't Hasselbeck be out on maternity leave?

DaRooster March 12, 2012 at 3:56 pm

“constitutionally entitled to his opinions,” they argued that he was not entitled to express them on the radio.

I'm sorry but if he has sponsors and folks that want to listen he is entitled to express his views. Kind of like some dipshit talking about why they think the Patriots will win everything, always…

(Disclaimer- I still think Rush Limplog is a vile piece of crap and if I had a chance I would love to kick him see him kicked in the nuts… I am trying my editrix)

Jane Fonda has apologized many times for what she did during Vietnam War. She also proclaimed her self a born again Christian. Those are things that usually prompt the wingers to forgive. Like with Newt's adultery, or Charles Colson's crimes (google him kids). But they don't like what she's saying, so she's still Hanoi Jane.

SorosBot March 12, 2012 at 4:01 pm

And Elizabeth, guess what – you are either lying or stupid. Feminists have defending conservative women from sexist attacks, even misogynistic women like Sarah Palin, because many feminists are against all sexist insults and attacks, even directed at people they don't like.

Your entire premise is wrong; you're asking why feminists don't do something that they actually do.

MadBrahms March 12, 2012 at 8:04 pm

"Sarah Palin is a feminist" (feminist as positive term)
"Anyone who attacks Sarah Palin is a feminist" (feminist as negative term)

I like to pretend it's all an elaborate piece of political performance art designed to shock us out of our categories and make us interrogate our blinkered masculinist epistemology. But no, no, they're really just horrible people.

Nostrildamus March 12, 2012 at 4:04 pm

Perhaps y'all knew this, but I didn't – the whole "bra burning" trope is a complete fabrication, pushed relentlessly in the popular press to trivialize feminism.

That's not gonna stop the wingnuts from using it though; just like they keep bringing up the "hippies spit on returning Vietnam vets" myth that's also been proven complete bullshit.

BarackMyWorld March 12, 2012 at 4:16 pm

note: This is my stardardized response to every conservative who tries to imply there's a double standard. This week it happens to be Elizabeth Hasselback.

Sandra Fluke, unlike _(insert name of consservative woman defending Limbaugh here)_ isn't a public figure with her own platform to respond to Limbaugh. But putting aside the fact that there is an accepted difference between how public figures and private citizens are treated, Rush Limbaugh didn't just call Ms. Fluke a "slut" and a "prostitute." He lied about her testimony and motives. He asked her who bought her condoms in junior high school. He said she probably had guys lined up around the block. He said she was having so much sex he was surprised she could still walk. He said she was having sex at sex-addict frequency, all the time, whenever she wants it, and called her an "amoral, baseless, no purpose to her life, woman." If you can show me an example of a liberal commentator doing something similar to this to a conservative woman, I would like to see it. Until then, please stop defending Limbaugh for just expressing an "opinion" which wasn't an opinion at all, but libel (for which he will probably be sued).

Jus_Wonderin March 12, 2012 at 4:23 pm

I heard Phyllis Schafly on The Diane Rehm Show this morning, running down the rep of Sandra Fluke. Sounded like talking points memo stuff and I wanted to kick the broad through the radio in her…."that thing that can't be named".

BarackMyWorld March 12, 2012 at 6:04 pm

Phyllis Schlafly's greatest accomplishment was convincing enough of the country that women shouldn't have equal rights to derail a Constitutional amendment that was on the verge of passing.

Whenever a conservative woman (or man for that matter) speaks out about how they are supposedly treated differently because of their opinions, I think people should be reminded what the actual opinions were that got them treated differently.

Loaded_Pants March 12, 2012 at 6:51 pm

"I heard Phyllis Schafly on The Diane Rehm Show this morning…"

FROTHY March 12, 2012 at 9:59 pm

I can't believe that so many people, even here on Teh Wonketz, are confusing the issue here. It is NOT about free speech at all. His right to free speech is constitutionally protected, and Congress has made no law to suppress it. However, should the *targets* of his free speech respond to his bullying by refusing to buy his advertisers' products, I fail to see how that even *raises* a free speech issue. People are free to spend their money as they please, just as that gangrenous pusbag is free to say what he pleases. Free market, not governmental suppression.

I don't remember saying it was or wasn't. I was talking about Hasselback's implication of double standard.

Beetagger March 12, 2012 at 4:18 pm

You're so cute when you're mad, Sugar Tits.

anniegetyerfun March 12, 2012 at 4:25 pm

I'm sure no one saw this coming with Hasselbeck. It's not like she immediately assumes the role of the neglected victim advocate whenever anyone anywhere suffers from anything – as long as she can find a neglected victim that has something in common with HER.

Syria attacks its own people.
Hasselbeck: But why aren't we talking about how some Syrians are CHRISTIANS??!?!

Army private loses mind, massacres Afghan civilians
Hasselbeck: How come no one is talking about a little white girl who disappeared over the weekend? I'm sure her parents are very worried!

Why is it more upscale dystopian hellscapes boast a thunder dome and all we have is "The View"?

Jus_Wonderin March 12, 2012 at 4:32 pm

This comment Wins me.

tessiee March 12, 2012 at 5:44 pm

I suppose we've gotta live with the dystopian hellscape we have, not the dystopian hellscape that we'd *like* to have.

Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh….let's call them objective.

The actual op-ed was on CNN.com and can be reached here

It happens every time dinner is late at skilled nursing.

mrblifil March 12, 2012 at 4:37 pm

May I suggest the esteemed Ms. Hasselbeck turn to burning tampons? Preferably while they are in use.

proudgrampa March 12, 2012 at 4:42 pm

Would someone please explain to me why Hasselbeck gets paid to spout her stupidity when proudgrampa can't get a real job???

HelmutNewton March 12, 2012 at 5:53 pm

Because she blew Mark Burnett to get on Survivor. And she has a vagina, also.

Redhead March 12, 2012 at 5:21 pm

In ConservativeLand, women who use birth control/expect their health insurance to actually cover things are prostitutes, women who leave the kitchen and expect to be treated equally are Nazis, and insane discriminatory libelous drug addicts are the last persecuted class, whose honor must be defended at all costs.

tessiee March 12, 2012 at 5:42 pm

"Would you like fries with that?"

tessiee March 12, 2012 at 5:43 pm

That cunt.

proudgrampa March 12, 2012 at 5:43 pm

Your Dad sounds like someone I would love. Bless his heart.

tessiee March 12, 2012 at 5:45 pm

Also, too: Why don't blah people get all bent out of shape when plantation overseers are attacked?

Callyson March 12, 2012 at 5:47 pm

Conservatives are always going on about "why don't feminists do X, Y, and Z" when in fact, if they bothered to listen to what feminists are actually saying, they would find that feminists are doing X, Y, and Z. To wit: http://www.now.org/news/blogs/index.php/sayit/201
Assholes.

tessiee March 12, 2012 at 5:50 pm

Yeah, why don't us crazy dames get all bent out of shape when those women who are trying to make life drastically worse for us are attacked*?
Go understand people, huh?

*because any criticism of any conservative about anything, ever, is an attack, right?

An_Outhouse March 12, 2012 at 5:51 pm

I thought they burned their bras because they were out of batteries…

for their flash lights.

tessiee March 12, 2012 at 6:04 pm

Given what a terrible job they've done of interpreting the words of Jesus, who they actually consider to be on their side, I'm not at all sure I trust the right to accurately interpret the words of Jane Fonda and Gloria Steinem.

FROTHY March 12, 2012 at 9:01 pm

These people getting their knickers in a knot over Jane FUCKING Fonda will absolutely PLOTZ when they find out about Agnes Smedley and Wilfred Burchett. Jeezus what fucking dimbulbs.

Allmighty_Manos March 13, 2012 at 10:30 am

I think this is secret AMC promotion for the new season of Mad Men

ttommyunger March 13, 2012 at 2:30 pm

Don't like to brag, but I've been to several of Jane's parties here (Atlanta) and she is, in my opinion, still quite fuckable, given the chance, which I haven't been……

Arken March 12, 2012 at 4:32 pm

You could see her boobs in Barbarella!

actor212 March 12, 2012 at 4:33 pm

Played a hooker in Klute.

SoBeach March 12, 2012 at 4:32 pm

I doubt it. They'll still bring up the "Hanoi Jane" stuff decades from now.

SorosBot March 12, 2012 at 4:34 pm

What's Barbarella, a strip club?

Advn2rgirl March 12, 2012 at 4:45 pm

I made the mistake of going to the Faux page and trying to read what they said they said. At the bottom, was this headline which I just had to click: "4 Hot Fox News Anchors You Don’t Have To Agree With (MadeMan)" and I got slammed by the Red Screen Of Death (and pr0n-blockage) on my work computer.

Arken March 12, 2012 at 4:47 pm

It's a movie that's like sci-fi crossed with a strip club and some French stuff.

SorosBot March 12, 2012 at 5:31 pm

Wait, a movie? What would a professional aerobics instructor be trying to act for?

Swampgas_Man March 12, 2012 at 6:51 pm

NEVER FORGIT the Orgazmatron!

Arken March 12, 2012 at 5:34 pm

The same reason an Austrain bodybuilder thought he'd make a good governor of California.

LionHeartSoyDog March 12, 2012 at 5:52 pm

Flirted with Colbert on the teevee, and it was hot!

FROTHY March 12, 2012 at 9:28 pm

Damn good movie, even if it is all about my very most favourite stuff in the whole world, i.e., murder, mayhem, SLUTS and PROSTITUTES, and wasn't that ever-so-cool and studly Donald Sutherland in there too somewhere? To drool for.

sewollef March 12, 2012 at 6:45 pm

Gonna have to wait 'til you get home…. then it's just between you and your ISP. And the NSA of course.
