Leftist women across the country are capitalizing on faux outrage against Rush Limbaugh for his comments about the discredited Sandra Fluke… …who somehow needs $3,000 per year for Contraception but doesn’t fit the adjective “promiscuous” …the definition for slut.
They ignore Bill Maher, Ed Shultz, and Keith Olbermann’s far more egregious verbal assault on Conservative Women such as Sarah Palin and Laura Ingraham. But, say a few inappropriate words about poor Sandra Fluke (who is indeed prostituting herself to the leftist assault on religious freedom), and the bras are getting burned once again.
In today’s Southeast Missourian, the story describes two
unnamed women’s groups that dropped petitions and toilet paper rolls at House Speaker Stephen Tilley’s office in protest of Rush Limbaugh. The leftist state run Associated Press certainly wouldn’t want to name the groups, so real news reporters could follow up.
We all know this. When the bust of Rush Limbaugh is placed among Missouri’s celebrities, we can count on leftist scum to deface it in the same way Occupy St. Louis defaced local landmarks.
But, what will they do with the bust of David Rice Atchison?
As typical with short-sighted liberal progs, they ignore the history of certain Missouri Hall of Fame members.
“Atchison is best known for the claim that for one day (March 4, 1849) he may have been Acting President of the United States.”
But the larger part of his life was spent as a rabid,”prominent pro-slavery activist and Border Ruffian leader, deeply involved with violence against abolitionists and other free-staters during the ‘Bleeding Kansas‘ events.”
Of course, the Hall of Famous Missourians page for Atchison omits that part of the story.
“As a Senator, Atchison was a fervent advocate of slavery and territorial expansion. He supported the annexation of Texas and the U.S.-Mexican War. Atchison and Missouri’s other Senator, the venerable Thomas Hart Benton, became rivals and finally enemies. Benton declared himself to be against slavery in 1849, and in 1851 Atchison allied with the Whigs to defeat Benton for re-election.”
“Atchison proposed that the [Kansas/Nebraska] area be organized and that the section of the Missouri Compromise banning slavery there be repealed in favor of popular sovereignty, under which the settlers in each territory would decide themselves whether slavery would be allowed.”
“At Atchison’s request, Senator Stephen Douglas of Illinois introduced the Kansas-Nebraska Act, which embodied this idea, in November 1853. The Act became law in May 1854, establishing the Territories of Kansas and Nebraska.”
So ladies, where are the petitions and toilet paper bombs being delivered to decry the inclusion of this racist pro-slavery U.S. Senator in the Missouri Hall of Fame? Where’s the outrage?
Well, Atchison is a Democrat, so we can count on your typical leftist double standard justifying his behavior because he’s on your side. We’ll expect to see his bust being adorned with gardenias and roses while your thugs defecate on Rush’s.
How any reasonable Missourian can vote with the Democrat party and it’s advancement of Infanticide, Racism, Misogyny, Double Standards and it’s attacks at the very heart of the Constitution is beyond me.
