EXCLUSIVE: Sandra Fluke will respond to Limbaugh’s ugly sexist attacks tonight on ‘Ed Show’


Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh is doubling down on his ugly sexist remarks about Sandra Fluke.  

As you’ll recall, Fluke is the Georgetown Law School student who House Republicans wouldn’t let testify at a contraception hearing on Feb. 16.

Fluke did, however, “testify” that evening during an exclusive live appearance on The Ed Show.  She also testified at an unofficial Democratic House hearing a week later, both times advocating insurance coverage of female contraception for birth control and medical conditions, such as the prevention ovarian cysts.

Yesterday, Limbaugh called Fluke a ”slut” and a “prostitute” because, as he argued, she’s having “so much sex she can’t afford the contraception.  She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex.”

What does it say about the college co-ed Susan Fluke who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex. What does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She’s having so much sex she can’t afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex.

The remarks drew widespread criticism, with House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi demanding that Republican leaders in the House “condemn these vicious attacks on Ms. Fluke.”

But on his radio show today, Limbaugh said he found the outrage over his remarks “absolutely hilarious.”  Referring to Fluke, Limbaugh demanded that women post sex tapes online if they use insurance-covered birth control.

Listen via Media Matters:

“So Miss 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. We want you post the videos online so we can all watch.”

Fluke will respond to Limbaugh’s attacks tonight exclusively on the #edshow at 8pET on @msnbctv.
