And On The Left We Have.... The Rest Of The Story

With all the brouhaha surrounding Rush Limbaugh and his recent vile comments directed toward Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke, I thought I'd balance it out a bit with some dirt directed at members of the lefty media. In her article for The Daily Beast titled: "Rush Limbaugh Isn’t the Only Media Misogynist," Kirsten Powers points out that:

*"During the 2008 election Ed Schultz said on his radio show that Sarah Palin set off a “bimbo alert.” He called Laura Ingraham a “right-wing slut.” (He later apologized.) He once even took to his blog to call yours truly a “bimbo” for the offense of quoting him accurately in a New York Post column."

*"Keith Olbermann has said that conservative commentator S.E. Cupp should have been aborted by her parents, apparently because he finds her having opinions offensive. He called Michelle Malkin a “mashed-up bag of meat with lipstick.” He found it newsworthy to discuss Carrie Prejean’s breasts on his MSNBC show. His solution for dealing with Hillary Clinton, who he thought should drop out of the presidential race, was to find “somebody who can take her into a room and only he comes out.” Olbermann now works for über-leftist and former Democratic vice president Al Gore at Current TV."

*"Left-wing darling Matt Taibbi wrote on his blog in 2009, “When I read [Malkin’s] stuff, I imagine her narrating her text, book-on-tape style, with a big, hairy set of balls in her mouth.” In a Rolling Stone article about Secretary of State Clinton, he referred to her “flabby arms.” When feminist writer Erica Jong criticized him for it, he responded by referring to Jong as an “800-year old sex novelist.” (Jong is almost 70, which apparently makes her an irrelevant human being.) In Taibbi’s profile of Congresswoman and presidential candidate Michele Bachmann he labeled her “batsh*t crazy.” (Oh, those “crazy” women with their hormones and all.)"

*"Chris Matthews’s sickening misogyny was made famous in 2008, when he obsessively tore down Hillary Clinton for standing between Barack Obama and the presidency, something that Matthews could not abide. Over the years he has referred to the former first lady, senator and presidential candidate and current secretary of state as a “she-devil,” “Nurse Ratched,” and “Madame Defarge.” Matthews has also called Clinton “witchy,” “anti-male,” and “uppity” and once claimed she won her Senate seat only because her “husband messed around.” He asked a guest if “being surrounded by women” makes “a case for commander in chief—or does it make a case against it?” At some point Matthews was shamed into sort of half apologizing to Clinton, but then just picked up again with his sexist ramblings."

*"Matthews has wondered aloud whether Sarah Palin is even “capable of thinking” and has called Bachmann a “balloon head” and said she was “lucky we still don’t have literacy tests out there.” Democratic strategist Jehmu Greene, who is the former president of the Women’s Media Center, told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly in 2011 that Matthews
“is a bully, and his favorite target is women.” So why does he still have a show? What if his favorite target was Jews? Or African-Americans?"

*"But the grand pooh-bah of media misogyny is without a doubt Bill Maher—who also happens to be a favorite of liberals—who has given $1 million to President Obama’s super PAC. Maher has called Palin a “dumb twat” and dropped the C-word in describing the former Alaska governor. He called Palin and Congresswoman Bachmann “boobs” and “two bimbos.” He said of the former vice-presidential candidate, “She is not a mean girl. She is a crazy girl with mean ideas.” He recently made a joke about Rick Santorum’s wife using a vibrator. Imagine now the same joke during the 2008 primary with Michelle Obama’s name in it, and tell me that he would still have a job. Maher said of a woman who was harassed while breast-feeding at an Applebee’s, “Don't show me your t*ts!” as though a woman feeding her child is trying to flash Maher. (Here’s a way to solve his problem: don’t stare at a strangers’ breasts). Then, his coup de grâce: “And by the way, there is a place where breasts and food do go together. It’s called Hooters!”"

See: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/03/04/rush-limbaugh-s-apology-liberal-men-need-to-follow-suit.html

So - given the outcry from the left on how terrible Limbaugh's comments were (which they WERE), where is the similar outcry from the left when their own media darlings do THE VERY SAME THING?

Oh, nooooooooooooooooooo. In that case - as we all know - the silence is deafing.

There is a reason that you were personally anointed by me as Chief MVB, (Most Valuable Blogger) because you are a TRUE PATRIOT and not a blind ideologue, thank you for your service to this country and thank you for your service to this cyber bathroom wall, said JimmyMack!

Chief MVB, clearly presented demagoguery and hate spewed from the left, and the COWARDS RESPONSE IS MORE OF THE SAME; instead of acknowledging the factual differences, November 6th 2012. ABO! Fire the Progressive.

Funkentelecky commented on Monday, Mar 05, 2012 at 22:43 PM

As Funk respectively asked Murrelet to get off of Mothers... this is her last stand before Funk Transform into DOZENS MODE, sai Windell.

Funkentelecky commented on Monday, Mar 05, 2012 at 22:57 PM

As a Christian, I'm giving you a legitimate warning to respect my honest request to leave my mother out of this, because you know nothing 0% actually about her; however you do about me, so I welcome your attacks on me, but if you can't acknowledege my request regarding mothers, may God have mercy on your sinful, cowardly and disrespectful, soul!

Funkentelecky commented on Monday, Mar 05, 2012 at 23:14 PM

Chief MVB, did you know about BHO's support of Infanticide?

See it here, with his voting record too.

sebekm,
Thank you for the fair and balanced response.

You are indeed the MVB

Iknowyou commented on Tuesday, Mar 06, 2012 at 08:27 AM

Funk, I have a list of people that have been complaining to the Long County Sheriff's Dept about the loud music in Murr'e area all the way back from 3 years ago.
Would like to see the list and track her down?

Iknowyou commented on Tuesday, Mar 06, 2012 at 08:49 AM

It's called the Public Open Records Act you MORON.

How do you think 911 calls are published and played on the news on TV?

LibertyDrum commented on Tuesday, Mar 06, 2012 at 08:58 AM

Very interesting Seb. It seems there is a glaring double standard.

Iknowyou commented on Tuesday, Mar 06, 2012 at 08:59 AM

Who needs a name when the phone number and address is recorded.

Iknowyou commented on Tuesday, Mar 06, 2012 at 09:32 AM

911 calls are played back on the news all the time so I have no idea where you have been hiding.

PS I am my own BOSS. I work for me. I have my own business. I will be expanding my business later this year and I may need a new Janitor if interested.

Iknowyou commented on Tuesday, Mar 06, 2012 at 09:38 AM

Murrelet, I see you have a lot of experience in cesspools since you are stuck in one. I believe you will be perfect for the job, you could be my new roto rooter man.

Iknowyou commented on Tuesday, Mar 06, 2012 at 09:45 AM

Murrelet, I hope you don't mind me using your photo for my profile picture.

Iknowyou commented on Tuesday, Mar 06, 2012 at 10:56 AM

See Murrelet it is so easy to control you.
You are like a puppet on a string.

If I was worried about my job I would stop blogging now wouldn't I Smurrelet?

RightWingRand commented on Tuesday, Mar 06, 2012 at 11:38 AM

She's obviously very concerned about anyone pulling back the curtain of her anonymity. She must be very fearful of repercussions

Iknowyou commented on Tuesday, Mar 06, 2012 at 12:27 PM

yes, Smurrelet needs to be very careful now because it's just a matter of time before I expose her.

sebekm commented on Tuesday, Mar 06, 2012 at 12:31 PM

"TOT, what he fails to mention is that:

1) at least two of the people mentioned in the article apologized--and not because sponsors were pulling their support."

If I "failed" to mention any apologies, then you did, too, in your diatribes against Limburger and Breitbart. They have "apologized" numerous times for their comments - but all IMHO are just as worthless as any apologies by the lefties.

(Actually, if you would bother to read the entire basic blog post you would find that an apology was mentioned by Kirsten Powers).

Apologies aren't the point. MYSOGYNIST STATEMENTS ARE. I would have thought with your education you would have realized that.

and

"Sebekm himself engages in the "nuts or sluts" tactic himself and so hardly sees what's wrong with it."

Apparently I only engage in it and direct it toward you, right?

Well - if you want apology, here's mine:

I'm sorry, but I don't consider an honest opinion a "tactic."

You need help. IMHO, you are a bipolar pathological insulter with a severe inferiority complex. The WHOLE WORLD (or at least the entire community here) can see it. You are the only one who apparently can't.

Get help.

LibertyDrum commented on Tuesday, Mar 06, 2012 at 13:19 PM

I've done a little fact finding, and it seems the young law student, Sandra Fluke, has more going on that we were let to believe. Please read the articles and see for yourself.

Iknowyou commented on Wednesday, Mar 07, 2012 at 08:27 AM

Sorry murr I did not read your response.

JimmyMack commented on Wednesday, Mar 07, 2012 at 09:23 AM

Never thought I would be in this position...but here goes nothing. I have been the object of Murrs bashing. She is quite good at it. I, in turn, have traded barbs with her. It's called free speech people and if it gets toooooo free speaking for ya...butt the hell out. Some people like Kitchens, I know I do. Some can't take the heat.

We are NOT in Church here folks. You want peace and harmony and good will (pretended or real? We got a couple hundred places of civility and worship sites to pick from in this area and you can pick some of that up there.

As one of my blogging friends once stated here before, and I paraphrase, "if you are looking for peace, harmony and good will..." you won't find it here.

To my thin skinned bloggers I say: tough cookies!!!!

Iknowyou commented on Wednesday, Mar 07, 2012 at 09:42 AM

I guess the best thing to do is ignore the PSHYCHO.

sebekm commented on Wednesday, Mar 07, 2012 at 09:44 AM

...and I've made the point before that "free speech" is NOT the ability to say anything you want whenever you want to whomever you want for whatever reason. Just as screaming "fire" in a crowded theater is excluded, so is language (on this site supposedly) which is "abusive,"bullying," and "harassing" to other bloggers.

When abuse, bullying, and harassment become the purpose of a blog string itself - IMHO - you are beyond the protection of "free speech." When the blog string becomes an opportunity for a bully to relentlessly insult and pound on somebody just "because they can," I believe in a controlled environment (by the Courier), that behavior should be curtailed.

This blog site is not SUPPOSED to be for people to bash each other - it is supposed to be for the free and unfettered exchange of IDEAS and dialogue. When that dialogue consists only of abuse, it becomes a cancer.

Yes - I did say your quote above in one of my earlier, more fatalistic moments. But I've been here going on three years now (I think), and my gauge of Murrelet's activity on this site is to provoke hostility so she can level insults. Other than a few, streaky, bipolar posts at other times, that's it.

The other people who want to engage in dialogue here don't deserve that. Who knows how many people she has run off with her insults? I would think the Courier would be interested in THAT - along with ATTEMPTING to maintain peace, harmony, and good will - in even the slightest form - on THEIR web site.

There's only ONE egregious violator of their policy that I see here. I intend to point it out to the Courier.

JimmyMack commented on Wednesday, Mar 07, 2012 at 09:51 AM

Ok Sebe. I guess it is now in the web-meister's hands. Are you setting a time limit on his response? I got kicked out pretty quick before my repentence.

sebekm commented on Wednesday, Mar 07, 2012 at 09:55 AM

I'm going to wait for at least 24 hours to see how many "yes votes" (different people) appear on the other blog. Then I'll send along my request, which I'll spend time crafting today.

I know the Courier staff and webmeister spot-check this blog community periodically, so by the end of the day they should be aware of what's coming.

JimmyMack commented on Wednesday, Mar 07, 2012 at 10:07 AM

Ok man. But, remember: Al Gore WON the popular vote in Y2K.

This is just a hunch, and like my Super Bowl Bets, I could be wrong on this and I haven't talked to IKY about any odds or anything but...I'm a gonna bet...Murr makes the cut. That doesn't mean I love the woman (she reported me to the FBI you know a while back) but she ain't kilt nobody here...yet. And, I know you are aware that some humans keep 'pet' rattlesnakes as well as pit bulls, chi-hau-haus, kitty kitties, and Tigers.

It varies.

sebekm commented on Wednesday, Mar 07, 2012 at 10:29 AM

I know, I know. But after putting up with what is tantamount to her "slime spamming" this site for years, I am inspired to do SOMETHING. If it doesn't work - as I said - c'est la vie. Believe it or not - my objective is not to get her kicked off the site, but I'm not sure anything short of that will make any difference. I could be wrong.....

LibertyDrum commented on Wednesday, Mar 07, 2012 at 10:59 AM

It does seem tough to have an mature conversation without the perpetual pother.

May I suggest one YouTube clip that comes to mind when I see the same cut&paste post over and over again.

http://youtube.com/watch?v=TZ0dJM3h-tE

JimmyMack commented on Wednesday, Mar 07, 2012 at 11:22 AM

Hi LD...I got to go look up pother......OK!...got it. Had not used it myself before. Good word. Danka. After viewing the clip it brings to mind that both sides, if we are talking right and left here, have their fair share of those that pother.

Some, like Limburger, even profit at pothering.

I still advocate shunning or ostracizing as practiced by the Amish for those bothered by Murr or whomever's perpetual pothering. You know, kinda like what's happening with the Nazi Gas Bag Limbaugh right now.

sebekm commented on Wednesday, Mar 07, 2012 at 11:24 AM

Exactly. That guy's whole purpose was to "shout down" and SHUT DOWN any real discourse on the topic. So should that be the goal or end result of a blog site "community?" Obviously - just as in real life - people aren't always going to get along, but when the bashing becomes all-consuming and the actual focus of the dialogue, then I think it's the wrong answer.

We ought to be able to disagree without calling each other various forms of a maternal fornicator, or be subjected to continuous and repeated insults just because it makes somebody feel good to do so. That's all I'm saying.

sebekm commented on Wednesday, Mar 07, 2012 at 11:31 AM

"I still advocate shunning or ostracizing as practiced by the Amish for those bothered by Murr or whomever's perpetual pothering."

Doesn't work. If you review the entire body of evidence, you really do see a bipolar effect at work, where there are brief stretches of civil discourse, inevitably (so far) followed by lengthy "target practice" with demeaning insults. It's human nature to "defend yourself," so people feel compelled to respond. When you don't, then comes further insults of "coward," "boy," and (in the case of males), comments directed at questioning manhood; and other women are "stupid cows."

No - doesn't/hasn't worked up until now.

JimmyMack commented on Wednesday, Mar 07, 2012 at 18:35 PM

Winston Churchill upon being confronted by an English Lady of Title, was accosted by her admonishment to Sir Winston at some fancy British gathering with the admonisment to Churchill: Sir Churchill, you are dastardly drunk. To which the former Prime Minster replied: "of course you are correct, Madame. But, you are incredibly ugly. However, by tomorrow I will be indubitably sober."

Insults have their places.

sebekm commented on Thursday, Mar 08, 2012 at 09:25 AM

Yes, Jimmy....but according to this site's rules of use, "abuse, harassment, and bullying" DO NOT have a place here. For years, it has been instigated almost exclusively by this one blogger.

I believe that it's now time for a change.

JimmyMack commented on Thursday, Mar 08, 2012 at 13:14 PM

I understand Sebe and you have documented your opinion very well indeed. I think we all are now waiting for the ball to drop or not.
