ShePAC video highlights Obama hypocrisy: Spread the word

posted at 12:34 pm on March 10, 2012 by

Bill Maher is a comedian so it doesn’t count that he called Sarah Palin a four-letter obscenity that identifies a part of the female anatomy. It doesn’t count because Maher has a much smaller audience than Rush Limbaugh (and no one pays any attention to him anyway). It doesn’t count because Maher doesn’t have sponsors to boycott. And best in show: It does count, but Bill Maher was right(!)—so it doesn’t count.

Oh, don’t mind me. I’m just listing some of the more intelligent arguments emanating from the left that explain why Rush Limbaugh is evil incarnate for calling a liberal activist a “slut,” while cable host Bill Maher, though undeniably guilty of misogynistic comments, gets a walk because conservative women don’t merit the same consideration. (In fact, just this week Maher’s fellow libtalker, Randi Rhodes, shared her learned view that conservative women represent so pernicious a force that they deserve to have their ovaries repossessed, but she too gets a pass.)

The “my dog’s better than your dog” argument could have gone on forever were it not for the news rising to the top that Maher donated $1 million to Priorities USA, a Democratic PAC run by former White House spokesman Bill Burton.

Once again, Maher finds himself in the cross hairs of a women’s group but so does the president for not refusing to cash Maher’s check.

The group that is out to expose Maher’s ugliness and the president’s hypocrisy is ShePAC, and they have put together a fairly compelling video montage of Barack Obama speaking out of both sides of his mouth when it comes to the treatment of women and/or family.

Please view it. Then share it. It counts.

About time the Right started pointing out this repulsive behavior on the Left. We’ve taken it without a peep for far too long.

Obama says that he called Ms. Fluke because of his little girls because he is such a thoughtful and caring parent and he doesn’t want people to use that kind of language around his kids.

That must be why he and Michelle invited this guy as a special guest to the White House…right? He wanted to set a good example for his daughters!

Great video.

Jon Stewart of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show questioned Fox News’ coverage of the controversy, saying that they “took the time to ignore Common’s entire body of work, save for one poem he wrote in 2007 that they appear to misunderstand.” Stewart also pointed out that in 2002, George W. Bush honored Johnny Cash, whose songs contain violent lyrics. Stewart further pointed out that Fox News itself offered positive coverage of Common’s career in 2010, and that Sean Hannity, who criticized Common’s White House invitation, is a friend of musician Ted Nugent, who in clips played on The Daily Show, used violent rhetoric in comments he made about President Obama and Hillary Clinton. Common later discussed the matter with Stewart during a September 14, 2011 appearance on the program.

It is a good video…to those that have been following the controversy. To someone who is basically ignorant of the double-standards and Obama’s one-sided support, this video could give the impression he is condemning EVERYONE who is this type of language when speaking about any woman. I think they could have done a better job of pointing out Obama’s hypocrisy along with that of the rest of the liberals’.
