Rush Limbaugh’s Tongue-Lashing in the Public Square:

I don’t like the term “slut-shaming” because the term implies there is a slut to be shamed.

I like the term tongue-lashing. But a tongue-lashing is usually done on a relatively small scale.

What Rush Limbaugh gave Sandra Fluke was a public-square style punishment.

With Wikipedia listing his listenership as 15+ million per week, I would call it a public- square style tongue-lashing of national proportion.

Because Rush Limbaugh disagreed with Sandra Fluke, he chose to use  his pervasive power and influential position as a broadcaster in an abusive manner in an attempt to silence her.

    My favorite amazing line pg. 2: “Sandra Fluke is just one in a long line of pseudo-feminists celebrating their sluthood.”

    WOW: Casey Fiano, you are The Hater of the Day!

  2. Rush Limbaugh requests pornography:

    “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.”
