Zombie Breitbart Now, Somehow, Perturbed By The Word “Slut”

 

"My conscience demands you not get insurance for these."Let us all pause for a moment and listen closely, so as not to miss the quiet but familiar noise of another political argument going over Dana Loesch’s head.

Loesch, Breitbart.com’s leader in the War On The War On Women, has (surprise!) a bone to pick with you, Feminidiots. She heard some of you at the DNC were selling “SLUTS VOTE” buttons to reference to when Rush Limbaugh went all crazy on Sandra Fluke and called her all those names, and she would like you to know that WHOA GUYS, THAT IS NOT COOL.

“The Illinois delegation brought some swag to the DNC,” she writes, “Because nothing says ‘respect women’ like wearing a giant slut button.”

Ah, so you’re saying the word “slut” is kind of disrespectful, maybe? A degrading slur custom-designed to attack a woman for her sexual identity? Glad we can finally agree on something.

But, just to be sure, let us unsheath our hypocrisy alarm to get a read on this “slut” business, because—

Damn. The hypocrisy alarm broke. Third one this week.

The cause of the break was caused by Loesch deciding that referencing Limbaugh’s insults was pretty much the same as agreeing with Limbaugh’s insults, and nobody over in the Big Misinformation Troll Hut appears to have corrected her, a deficiency most likely explained by most of the troll hut residents… agreeing with Limbaugh’s insults.

How did Loesch’s Zombie Breitbart colleagues deal with the scandal, other than turning Rush Limbaugh lambasting a grad student into a sinister Obama plot?

Well, here’s a story from April, gleefully relating the news that Georgetown University would not be revising its contraception coverage. What’s the lede on this one?

Sandra Fluke, the militant feminist activist-cum-Georgetown Law School student, has fallen short in her effort to force Georgetown to pay for her birth control.

Charming. What a lovely way to frame the debate over women’s reproductive rights.

And here’s Sam Sorbo, a week ago:

…although his choice of language was unfortunate, it wasn’t wholly inaccurate. If someone (the government) pays for her to have sex, then, there’s a name for that.

Quick translation: Not letting your employer dictate your medical treatment means the government is paying you to have sex. Just so you know. Unless you’re a guy getting Viagra, in which case the “name for that” is medical insurance.

But there’s one more example that the Troll Hut residents don’t mind the word slut, even though Dana Loesch thinks it’s so degrading. Here’s a tweet from one of them, from back in March:

If you expect me to pay higher insurance premiums to cover your ‘free’ birth control, I can call you whatever I want.

Well, that’s the opposite of what Dana Loesch is saying people should do! Who tweeted that? OH IT WAS DANA LOESCH I FORGOT.

So listen, people with the slut buttons: It’s disrespectful to call women sluts, unless you disagree with their views on health care, in which case, yes, they are sluts, because of the dictionary, and also screw Obamacare. [Big Government]

      I belive that I speak for ever man on the political left when I say, If the right wing doesn't want anything to do with sluts, we will gladly find a place for them under our big tent!

    1. Blunderthing

      It was an accident. Should have been "reflection". And there are replies now, so no changes. But I googled "refection" and oh well, why not?

  1. Come here a minute

    Loesch is also offended by the second word on that button because women voting is just icky.

  2. vag

    "Sandra Fluke, the militant feminist activist-cum-Georgetown Law School student…"

    I need to start slipping cum into more things.

    1. HogeyeGrex

      I need to start slipping cum into more things.

      I've been trying to do that for most of my adult life.

  3. hagajim

    You'd think that at some point these idiots brains would just explode from all of the clashes of hypocrisy going on in them…derpa derpa derpa.

    1. miss_grundy

      I would looooovvvvvveeee for her to have a conversation with Mitt's empty suit. It would probably be ROTFLMAO funny.

    2. tessiee

      I LIked it, and only wish there were a Super Like 'n' Stuff button.
      Also, Betty White's vintage pinups were hot.

  4. actor212

    Bigger question, sort of meta: Is Dana Loesch a slut?

    I mean, think about it: she's a shitty reporter and has no skills, yet she managed to weasel a job on a national cable network.

        1. tessiee

          So are Squirrel Nut Zippers; I used to go see them when they played at the Farmer's Market for free.
          In the interest of historical accuracy, though, they were named after an old time candy bar.

          1. fartknocker

            It's also the name of a old rock-a-billy band that plays at some small beer joints and honky tonks here in South Texas.

          2. tessiee

            I'm guessing that it's probably the same band I used to go see when they played at the Farmer's Market for free.

            It seems pretty unlikely that there are TWO bands named the Squirrel Nut Zippers.

          3. proudgrampa

            You're one up on me. I never saw the Butthole Surfers, but heard them a few times on albums that my sons played. I just genuinely enjoyed their music.

  5. Dumbedup

    Dana Loesch, Laura Ingram, Michelle Malkin; it's the same one trick pony, isn't it? Nasty attitude, snappy insults, sneer. have they ever been witnessed together in the same place?

    1. rickmaci

      Thinly repressed anger over the fact that everyone else is having fun at the party and they are not invited because they are enormous buzz kills.

  6. Oblios_Cap

    “Because nothing says ‘respect women’ like wearing a giant slut button"

    Giant Slut Buttons are fun to push!

    1. Tundra Grifter

      I know I can never find that dang little one…

      [PS: My apologies for the earlier, very incomplete version of this post; it was very early on the Left Coast!]

    2. tessiee

      "Giant Slut Buttons are fun to push!"

      Just so it's clear, does "giant" modify "slut" or "button"?
      Giant slut like snoo snoo.

  7. Goonemeritus

    It is particularly troubling that I, a totally socially inept engineer am having less trouble understanding this issue than the GOP.

  8. CrunchyKnee

    Today we are all….say, wait a minute, I think everyday the collective Wonki are sluts. Never mind.

  9. mavenmaven

    Its like the N word, which is "OK when they say it" but in reverse, only haters are allowed to use it.

  10. Monsieur_Grumpe

    I would like to point out that it is much cheaper not having babies so that arguement of paying more for insurance because of her "free" birth control is flawed.

  11. Baconzgood

    Just because women like sex for recreation doesn't make them sluts. I hate that the right wing thinks that. Free those Va-jay-jay's ladies. You can have sex for fun. No matter what Bill O tells you there is nothing wrong with enjoying a good fucking.

      1. tessiee

        I suppose you're right. After all, trying to figure out just how far one could shove that loofah can't really be considered "Good".

  12. Antispandex

    "If someone (the government) pays for her to have sex, then, there’s a name for that."

    Fun? The most Fun ever? Communism? Liberal? Damn. I give up. What is the word?

    Also, what's that word for when the government and business get in bed together, and persecute minorities and organized labor, and attempt to eliminate all political opposition with intense nationalism? Damn it. I just can't remember shit today!

    1. rickmaci

      Nice thing about the buttons, they help a guy who is out trolling identify which women are on the pill.

  13. Lionel[redacted]Esq

    I, personally, have jut called up the DNC and volunteered for their slut outreach program. I might have to bang a bunch of doors, but I'm willing to make sure all of them get to the poll.

    1. emmelemm

      Actually, once you remove the aspirin from between your knees and swallow it, you'll be ready for sluthood in no time.

      1. FakaktaSouth

        Honest to God you are absolutely right, no doubt. It's good for EVERYthing, but definitely headaches.

  14. proudgrampa

    I, for one, welcome our Slut Voters and volunteer to set up a "Bring a Slut to the Polls" car service on election day.

    Of course, if you want a ride, you gotta put out.

    1. kittensdontlie

      Outside of the panties, the slut button is man's best friend. Inside of the panties, it's too dark to read…?

  15. BoroPrimorac

    One MIKELLL says: "I grew up with alot of respect for women but man have they changed in the last 20-30 years….curse like men, drink like men, screw like men, act like men…"

    How would you know what men screw like, MIKELLL?

    1. actor212

      And this is all a bad thing….precisely how?

      For my part, I'd rather a woman knew how to curse, drink and screw. It makes turning on the game after sex that much easier when you can share.

  16. ShuCityRefugee

    Doesn't Ms. Loesch work for a site named for a man who launched an inexplicable tirade against Janeane Garofalo, calling her "a pity f**k?"

  17. IncenseDebate

    Maybe Emerson was wrong about the "foolish consistency" being "the hobgoblin of little minds," because these tiny minds are very inconsistent.

    1. BenGleck

      It actually means, "Small minded people think being consistent is almost mandatory, even when it flies in the face of reality."
      We had perfect example last week.

  18. kittensdontlie

    Those buttons have worked just as intended, to distract and confuse the media from the DNC delegates real vexation: SLUTS VOTE anagrams into VETS LOUTS.

  19. barto

    Can't you just accept that this is all a huge horrible plot to make Dana Loesch fail? It works, EVERY TIME!

          1. RavenRant

            I could've gone with trollop or wanton or harlot or doxie or jade or bawd, and "I insist on" or "I favor" or a dozen other phrases but "I'm partial to strumpet" was the very sentence my fingers were fixing to type.

            Eerie.

  20. ShuCityRefugee

    As for challenges to a person's virtue, I once watched Ms. Loesch in a roundtable discussion, and had to look her up. I couldn't understand how she had secured employment as a commentator unless she was well-connected. She attended an obscure college, so she offered no academic prestige (I'm not sure she graduated), she is ill-informed, disagreeable, inarticulate, and only moderately attractive. Some might wonder what she did to get a job; I'll call her whatever I want to.

    1. actor212

      So you're saying she's wholly unqualified for her job, based on her CV, and you question the manner, the process if you will, in which she obtained said employment, especially as she was a liberal up until the September 11 attacks and therefore wholly unknown in conservative circles prior to that?

    2. rickmaci

      She met the job description; she was the only "born again" applicant for the job who could generally connect nouns and verbs with a few articles, adjectives and adverbs and do it in an ill-informed and disagreeable manner.

  21. BlueStateLibel

    "If you expect me to pay higher insurance premiums to cover your ‘free’ birth control, I can call you whatever I want." I bet this troll weighs 400 lbs, eats like a hog, and yet I'm expected to cover his free insulin, lipitor and bypasses, so I'll call him whatever I want too, which a is a fat stupid hog.

  22. UW8316154

    But covering oral contraceptives for acne, menopause, and anemia from severe menstrual bleeding – that's still okay, right?

    Or is there a requirement of "no sex" for the women who take BCP's for non-contraceptive conditions? Just in case the *might* try to take advantage or scam these guys into paying for their sexxxy-times?

  23. anniegetyerfun

    …although his choice of language was unfortunate, it wasn’t wholly inaccurate. If someone (the government) pays for her to have sex, then, there’s a name for that.

    Page? Intern?

      1. Tundra Grifter

        Doesn't really fit. Perhaps because there isn't an equivalent. "He's a man of the world. She's 'been around.'"

  24. Tundra Grifter

    Dana Loesch used graphic, and incorrect, details of the terrible assult on Lara Logan to support the Wisconsin protestors.

    I know I've posted this before. It still pisses me off.

  25. HogeyeGrex

    Aw, holy fucknuggets. The comments over there are just fucking amazing.

    Like

    Keep the baby, abort the slut.

    and the solidly WTF

    Okay so "sluts vote". Doesn that mean that they also work for their financial living? HO, HO, HO! Vaginas are also EMPTY just like their sculls apparently! Yeah, sluts do vote, and they do so """"""STUPIDLY"""""" %%%%HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN, THE SKY IS BLUE….%%%%%

  26. Shypixel

    I can never say anything bad about dirt weed or sluts.

    Without dirt weed, I'd have never gotten high.

    Without sluts, I'd have never gotten laid.

    God bless them both.

  27. owhatever

    I have made a decision that some Republicans may not like. The government should pay for all birth control, including abortion if necessary. A religious person would not have to accept it, but the offer to help should be there. Part of that "promote the general welfare" of the people that our Four Fathers wrote about in the Constitution.

  28. Callyson

    Dana,

    If you expect me to pay higher insurance premiums that do not cover the birth control for which I am *already* paying via those high insurance premiums, I can call you whatever I want.

    Bitch.

  29. tessiee

    "If you expect me to pay higher insurance premiums to cover your ‘free’ birth control, I can call you whatever I want."

    I…
    actually…
    sort of…
    agree.
    If the red state assholes and the bible thumpers and the 1% and whoever else has Breitbart read out loud to them were willing to pay their share of taxes that go to health care/social services/the safety net, etc. [I realize that they're not, but anyway], they could call me a slut, a whore…
    hell, they could call me a striped-assed baboon for all I'd care, as long as they paid their fair share.

  30. finallyhappy

    I was offered the "opportunity" to wear one of the vagina costumes seen in front of the Capitol a few weeks ago(not sure if this photo was taken then as I have seen similar costumes elsewhere)- if it had not been 100 degrees out, I might have done it.

  31. glamourdammerung

    And here’s Sam Sorbo, a week ago:

    Copying exactly what Chairman Limbaugh said back then.

    We should be very clear about this. They do not hate Ms. Fluke because she is a "slut". They hate her because they were told to be Chairman Limbaugh and they are too weak minded to think for themselves.

  32. ttommyunger

    That's only fair. Speaking as a confirmed slut (yes, males can be sluts too) I'm still perturbed by the name: BREITBART,
