Obama on Rush and Fluke: I don’t like to see private citizens insulted for speaking up

posted at 4:50 pm on March 6, 2012 by Allahpundit

He’s fine, of course, with private citizens being attacked by his own campaign if it helps squeeze extra cash out of liberal suckers obsessed with the “Kochtopus.” Granted, you can’t compare Fluke to the Kochs because they have endless resources at their disposal to fight back whereas she only has the Democratic establishment/major media eager to use her as a martyr for O’s “war on women” messaging in the fall, but what about, say, Joe the Plumber? Jonah Goldberg looks back:

You may recall that when Joe Wurzelbacher was approached by Barack Obama entirely accidentally, he became something of a political celebrity for having a philosophical disagreement with the president over spreading the wealth around and all that. Before long, the mainstream press went to battle stations to discredit the man. He didn’t even have a plumber’s license! (didn’t need one in Ohio). He had financial problems! He was a fraud! An astroturf plant! Blah blah blah. The Democrats, likewise, were unrestrained in their efforts to ridicule the man. Here’s Joe Biden ridiculing Wurzelbacher (and offering a tendentious argument about taxes)…

When average citizens are thrust into the political debate, they are heroes — if they confirm prevailing liberal arguments. When they run against the grain of the preferred narrative, they are ground down, caricatured, and treated to corrosive media skepticism.

On her Facebook page, Palin wonders re: Bill Maher, “Pres. Obama says he called Sandra Fluke because of his daughters. For the sake of everyone’s daughter, why doesn’t his super PAC return the $1 million he got from a rabid misogynist?” Well, we know why. I confess, after years of “teabagger” snickering, grotesque fingerpointing over the Tucson shooting, and most recently the high-fiving on Twitter over Breitbart’s death, it’s increasingly difficult to blog about these sporadic “civility” lectures. What’s left to say? They’re frauds. They care about “tone” precisely to the extent that it can be exploited to electoral advantage and no further. To write about it even to dump on them for it is to give them more credit than they deserve. Any questions?

Note the exchange at the very end here, too. If you can’t decipher all of it, John McCormack has a transcript. Turns out when O’s asked to critique right-wing rhetoric, he can muster a few thoughts, but when it comes time to weigh in on the “war on women” schtick being pushed by Debbie “New Tone” Wasserman-Schultz, suddenly he’s not in the business of arbitrating. Again, any questions?

Update: Commenters remind me that I forgot this golden moment of healing. At the rate we’re going, the DNC will end up turning that into an ad before the campaign is over.

CycloneCDB on March 6, 2012 at 4:53 PM

Scott Adams nails it:

From my point of view, Limbaugh treated Fluke like a worthy opponent, capable of handling a harsh attack. In other words, he treated her the same way he routinely treats the President of the United States. As I’ve said on other occasions, you haven’t achieved equality until you’re a legitimate target for humor. Obviously we aren’t there yet.

Feminists always treat adult women as delicate flowers when it suits them.

Scott Adams, a liberal, gets it

The Limbaugh Fluke Mar 5, 2012 Notify
Which of these two events do you find more distasteful?

1. Rush Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke a slut for her position on contraceptives.

Or

2. Activists are treating Fluke as a helpless victim who needs society’s protection against the harsh words of an entertainer.

My interpretation of events is that Limbaugh saw Fluke as a capable adult, and a public figure, tough enough to handle some harsh language. The boycotters apparently see Fluke as more of an endangered child, or a helpless damsel in distress, threatened by a monster. Light the torches and launch the boycott!

One way to look at this situation is that Limbaugh is a misogynist bully who cold-heartedly attacked a young woman who was only trying to make the world a better place through her testimony.

Another way to look at it is that Limbaugh’s brand of entertainment involves saying cruel and absurd things about any public figure with an opposing opinion. Fluke volunteered to be a public figure, and by all evidence, she’s a capable adult (age 30?) who doesn’t run from a fight.

Did I miss the part where Fluke asked society to fight her battles for her? What I saw was the opposite. Fluke willingly waded into the fight about contraception. The timid people stayed home and watched her on television.

From my point of view, Limbaugh treated Fluke like a worthy opponent, capable of handling a harsh attack. In other words, he treated her the same way he routinely treats the President of the United States. As I’ve said on other occasions, you haven’t achieved equality until you’re a legitimate target for humor. Obviously we aren’t there yet.

Full disclosure: I don’t agree with anything that comes out of Rush Limbaugh’s mouth, but I have a great appreciation for his entertainment skills.

Schadenfreude on March 6, 2012 at 4:56 PM

I can’t wait to find out she’s gay and doesn’t use contraception herself. Very few people would have the degree she has and be straight.

aniptofar on March 6, 2012 at 4:57 PM

I like to see private citizens get insulted for demanding more entitlements when we’re accelerating down the ditch while a complete fool is at the wheel.

Obama on Rush and Fluke: I don’t like to see private citizens insulted for speaking up

Funny. Palin’s been a private citizen for nearly 3 years and she’s still getting it from the left. Carrie Prejean was never in politics to begin with, but you wouldn’t know it based on the vitriol thrown at her. Breitbart was a private citizen. Joe the Plumber was a private citizen. So is nearly every Tea Partier out there. Same with the aforementioned Koch Bros. How about those people who bitterly cling to guns and religion?

I think you get the picture. Since 2008, it’s been quite clear that even being a private citizen affords you know mercy from the Democrat/media complex if you’re a conservative. The answer is not to complain about the double standard. It ain’t going nowhere. What we need to do is throw their hypocrisy in their faces at every opportunity and never be afraid of fighting back.

The Modern Family according to the Democrat party

Hyper sexualized intellectual off at law school girl= starring Sandra Fluke

Attack dog uncle or big brother ready to fight for ‘honor’ of girl=starring Axelrod
Wise ol’ sage aunties lookin’ out for girls best interests= starring DWS
Mean ol’ tyrant that hates girls and family–the Enemy= starring Rush

This is the play that is being setup for you guys y’know. That is all that it is. Where is this girls’ parents? Her brothers? Nowhere—Barack Obama is the sugar daddy that can talk sweetness to his girl. He wants to be your college girls father, fellas, and this is how he interposes himself–this is not a war on women, it is a war on the Family–once again.

If we were able to nominate a perfect conservative standard bearer with a flawless record who makes no unforced errors, has no baggage, and can beautifully articulate an air-tight case against Obama are we sure we could win? Or is the American electorate to dumbed down, dependant, and diseased to absorb any point of view not hand fed them by the MSM, academia, the entertainment industry? How much has the electorate degraded since the last time a Republican president was elected in 2004? When I look around, I’m thinking a lot.

Gas prices, people, gas prices. Gas prices, and 0bama’s statement that he wanted energy prices would “necessarily skyrocket”.

And unemployment. Officially at about 8.5%, probably much higher.

Solyndra, and the half billion dollars wasted there.

0bama’s lie that the “American Recovery Act”, AKA the “stimulus bill”, would hold unemployment below 8%.

A $16 trillion national debt.

Congress (mom) wouldn’t give it to her, so dad called to soothe things over and tell her not to worry about the big Mean Rush down the street that bullied her. Big Daddy is there to wipe away the tears and he’ll see to it that her needs are met, he’ll deal with the bully, and she can get back to her education in no time.

ted c on March 6, 2012 at 5:07 PM

Rush is a private citizen, who made a statement against another private citizen.

You don’t have to be an elected official to lose the status of being a “private citizen.” Rush Limbaugh gave up being a private citizen decades ago. Arguably, Sandra Fluke abdicated her private-citizen status about two weeks ago.

In any case, both are public figures now, and fair game for support, criticism or any other commentary from anyone else, even the President.

Well if that’s all that’s required to justify a gross invasion of privacy, please supply your real name so that I can do the same to you, as I have deemed you an “emptyheaded doofus.”

I don’t give a Fluk who Sandra Fluke Fluks and I won’t pay for Fluke’s Fluks regardless of how much Flak I get.
