Rush Limbaugh’s Sandra Fluke ‘Slut’ Remark and More Crazy Comments

Mar 7, 2012 4:45 AM EST

Calling Sandra Fluke a “slut” and slamming author Tracie McMillan as overeducated but not necessarily intelligent were just the radio host’s latest zingers. From equating Obama with Hitler to likening Hillary Clinton to a “screeching ex-wife,” Rush’s 19 most outrageous remarks.

The conservative radio show host is famous for his derogatory remarks about women, liberals, and minorities. But Rush Limbaugh sparked a national outrage and sent his advertisers running for the hills when he called Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke a “slut” after she testified before Congress about contraception. Still, it may only be a bump in the road for Limbaugh. Read 19 of his most shocking remarks.

1. Tracie McMillan Is ‘Overeducated’

Limbaugh has lost nearly two dozen advertisers since his attack on Sandra Fluke, so you might think he would tone down the whole misogynist angle on his show. You’d be wrong. On Tuesday, he targeted another young woman, Tracie McMillan, who spent a year working low-paying jobs in the food industry and reflects on the experience in her new book, The American Way of Eating. He grouped the author “with all these young single white women” who, he said, are “overeducated”—but not necessarily intelligent! He pointed out that she’s been “seems to be just out of college and already she has been showered with awards, including the 2006 James Aronson Award for Social Justice Journalism…This woman wrote the book on food inequality, food justice, got an award for social justice journalism.”

2. Terrorist Must Be an Obama Fan

In May 2010, Limbaugh claimed that the failed Times Square car bomber, Faisal Shahzad, was a registered Democrat. “I wonder if his SUV had an Obama sticker on it,”’ he added. The only problem with that explosive claim? Shahzad wasn’t registered to vote.

3. Feminism Is for ‘Unattractive Women’

We’re surprised this one isn’t higher up on Limbaugh’s list of “35 Undeniable Truths of Life.” Ranking at 24:“Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society.” If it weren’t for feminism, the “unattractive women” would have been outcast from society like lepers, the attractive ones would all have been submissive to men, and the world according to Rush Limbaugh would be a better place.

4. Hungry Kids Should Go Dumpster Diving

Referencing a June 2010 report that said a record number of kids in the U.S. would face hunger over the summer without government-paid school lunches, Limbaugh suggested they go Dumpster diving. But first he offered a few other options: “There’s the Dollar Menu at McDonald’s and if they don’t have Chicken McNuggets, dial 911 and ask for Obama.” If the president doesn’t pick up, “there’s always the neighborhood Dumpster.”

5. Women’s Lives Are Easier Than Men’s

This might seem rich, coming from a man whose job is sitting in a chair and speaking into a microphone all day: “Women still live longer than men because their lives are easier.”

6. Obama, ‘Environmentalist Wackos’ Blew Up BP Oil Rig

When disaster strikes in the U.S.—whether it’s a terrorist attack, a tornado, or an oil-rig explosion—Limbaugh likes blame Obama and all the other liberals in America who share his views. Take, for instance, Limbaugh’s finger-pointing over the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. There’s always a chance that Obama and his fellow “environmentalist wackos” deliberately blew up the oil rig because they opposed offshore drilling. “Since they’re sending SWAT teams to inspect the oil rigs, what better way to head off more drilling, nuclear plants, than by blowing up a rig?” Rush speculated. “I’m just noting the timing here.”

7. We Should Use Up Our Nukes to Reduce Them

Rush’s proposed resolution to the ongoing nuke crisis: start a nuclear war! “The only way to reduce nuclear weapons is to use them.”

8. Obama: He’s Just Like Hitler!

Here’s something you might not have known about Obama’s health care reform plan: it’s designed to kill off the elderly. At least that was an argument put forth in 2009 by two House GOP leaders, who warned in a statement that the reform bill “might start us down a treacherous path toward government-encouraged euthanasia.” Limbaugh ran with the argument and somehow arrived at the conclusion that Democrats have a lot in common with Nazis. It all started when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said people protesting outside the health care town halls were wearing swastikas. Limbaugh launched into a diatribe on the real Nazis: “They [Democrats] accuse us of being Nazis, and Obama’s got a health-care logo that’s right out of Hitler’s book.” Oh, and the Nazis were also against big business. At the end of a lengthy rant, he concluded that “Adolf Hitler, like Barack Obama, also ruled by dictate.”

9. Hillary Clinton ‘Sounds Like a Screeching Ex-Wife’

Ah, Rush’s favorite target: liberal women in politics. Discussing Hillary Clinton’s potential presidential run during a radio segment in March 2006, Limbaugh tried to backpedal on his incendiary comment—sort of. “There’s nothing against ex-wives or women. I’m just trying to be descriptive for you. Men will know what I mean by this.” The “danger a Hillary presidency would pose,” plus the sound of her voice, was just too much for Limbaugh to take.

10. Hillary Clinton Puts Her Pants on Like a Guy

Apparently Limbaugh’s fans know how to get him going. A year earlier, in response to a listener’s anxiety over Hillary Clinton’s political rise, the radio host said, “I’m not worried about Hillary. She puts her pants on one leg at a time like every guy does.”

11. Black Caller Should ‘Take That Bone Out of Your Nose’

In the 1970s, Limbaugh was known as Jeff Christie. He hosted a Top 40 music show in Pittsburgh, but somehow he managed to slip racial slurs into his program. As he struggled to understand a black caller, he told the person on the other end of the line to “take that bone out of your nose and call me back.” When asked about the comment decades later, Limbaugh professed that he is “the least racist host you’ll ever find.”

12. Women Enjoy Sexual Harassment

In April 2004, one day after more than 750,000 people marched on Washington in support of legalized abortion, Limbaugh declared that “babes”—his word for working women—++enjoy being sexually harassed++ [http://www.time.com/time/nation/art...]. They “like the sexual harassment crowd,” Limbaugh said. “They’re out there protesting what they actually wish would happen to them sometimes.” This all at a time when Limbaugh was beginning to enjoy “a newfound respectability in the mainstream media.”

13. There’ll Be a ‘Retard Summit’ at the White House

In August 2010, then-chief of staff Rahm Emanuel said in a closed-door strategy session that liberal groups should not run attack ads against conservative Democrats who did not support the president’s health-care overhaul, calling it “fucking retarded.” But word leaked out that Emanuel had used the word “retard,” and the president’s brash sidekick faced harsh criticism for his choice of words. Sarah Palin called on Emanuel to resign over the comment. Limbaugh, however, saw no issue with Emanuel’s choice of words. “Our politically correct society is acting like some giant insult’s taken place by calling a bunch of people who are retards, retards...There’s going to be a retard summit at the White House,” he said.

14. Yankees Owner Made Many Black Millionaires

After Yankees owner George Steinbrenner died, Limbaugh toned down his praise for America’s “classic capitalist” by complaining that the boss had helped a lot of black people earn a good living. “That cracker made a lot of African-American millionaires.” Not only that, Limbaugh said, “he fired a lot of white guys,” too.

15. Haiti Earthquake Plays ‘Right Into Obama’s Hands’

One day after a calamitous earthquake shook Haiti in January 2010, Limbaugh took to the air to predict that Obama and his team would use the crisis “to burnish their credibility with the black community.” The earthquake, Limbaugh said, would “play right into Obama’s hands,” and would help the president project a “compassionate” and “humanitarian” image. When a listener called in to complain that the government was directing people to donate through the White House website—instead of going directly to the Red Cross’s website—Limbaugh lambasted Americans who had been moved by the tragedy to help a nation in peril. “We’ve already donated to Haiti. It’s called the U.S. income tax,” Limbaugh said, adding, “You can’t keep throwing money at it.”

16. Michelle Obama’s a Big Fat Hypocrite

Limbaugh was quick to criticize first lady Michelle Obama’s nutritional campaign, targeting her waistline in his attack. “It doesn’t look like Michelle Obama follows her own nutritionary, dietary advice. And then we hear that she’s out eating ribs at 1,500 calories a serving with 141 grams of fat per serving,” Limbaugh said, referencing a meal Mrs. Obama ate while on vacation in Colorado with her family, minus the president. “She’s a hypocrite,” he added. According to the Vail Daily, the first lady actually dined on rather healthful fare, ordering “a pickled pumpkin salad with arugula and a braised ancho-chile short rib with hominy wild mushrooms and sautéed kale.”

17. Black People to Blame for Hurricane Katrina Chaos

Weighing in on the chaos that ensued in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, Limbaugh declared, “It’s not George Bush’s fault!” While Bush admitted his administration’s inability to deal with the chaos, Limbaugh blamed it on black people who “wanted to rape and loot!” He continued: “We’ve had these problems ever since the Emancipation Proclamation. Once the whites leave town, all you’ve got is overwhelming lawlessness.”

18. Dems Anointed Sherrod Brown Because He Is ‘Black’

Rush spiced up his Valentine’s Day broadcast in 2004 by inventing a racial twist to the Ohio Democratic Senate primary race. The day before, Iraq War veteran Paul Hackett withdrew from the contest, citing Democratic leaders’ wishes to have seven-term Rep. Sherrod Brown fill the vacant seat. Limbaugh was convinced that Brown had been anointed because he was black. “And don’t forget, Sherrod Brown is black. There’s a racial component here, too. And now, the newspaper that I’m reading all this from is The New York Times, and they, of course, don’t mention that.” Unfortunately for Rush, Brown is white.

19. Women Like ‘Male Chauvinist Pigs’

For once, Limbaugh was spot-on when summed up his attitude toward women in 2004, speaking on behalf of himself and other “chauvinist pigs.” But he failed to make the connection that chauvinists invariably objectify women and view them as unequal. “We’re not sexists, we’re chauvinists,” he said. “We’re male chauvinist pigs and we’re happy to be because we think that’s what men were destined to be. We think that’s what women want.”

Who is Ms. Tracie McMillan?

Who is Ms. Tracie McMillan? A doctor? A nutritionist? A journalist? Nope. A Poly Sci graduate from where else: NYU!

The last time I looked, I still live America where I can eat what ever I want to eat. I don’t need someone like Tracie McMillan, calling me a bigoted, homophobic, misogynist, racist, middle class jerk for eating steaks with Twinkies and washing them down with Diet Coke.

Ms. McMillan book "The American Way of Eating" sounds like a piece of polemic nonsense and should be treated as such. Ms. McMillan should thank Mr. Limbaugh for bring her book to the attention of the American people. PR like that doesn’t come cheap and that will help Ms. McMillan sell a lot more of her books. In fact, I’m going to read the book if my public library gets it.

And by the way, the winner of the James Aronson Award for Social Justice Journalism for 2006....is/was....not.....Tracie McMillan! If one goes to the award’s web site: http://brie.hunter.cuny.edu/aronson... The winners for 2006 are: Amy Goodman, Career Achivevement; Julia Whitty, Mother Jones; Corine Hegland, National Journal; Judy Pasternak, Los Angeles Times; Tim Collie, Mike Stocker and Jim Amon, South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

No brag, just fact and Ms. McMillan is full of crap!

Remember that whenever I hear the term “Social Justice,” I reach for my 1st Amendment Right to bear arms. Social Justice Commissars like Tracie McMillan will have to pry the Big Mac from my cold dead fingers!

Why do you waste so much of your precious time enumerating the inanities of an ignorant, fascist hypocrite? Can’t you see that this is EXACTLY the kind of reaction that he wants from people? This is how this third-rate radio announcer makes his living. He’s the worst kind of parasite, the kind that thrives on fear, the kind that relishes class war and racial divisions. People, you help this over rated reactionary make his easy money whenever you give him the time of day.

The best revenge is indifference. Most conservatives, the real ones with brains, consider him either a fool, or worse, a puppet for the Federal Reserve and their globalist masters.

Believe me, once you remove this fake ’conservative’ from the spot light of media attention which his fragile ego constantly craves, he will crumble, just like any other weak exhibitionist.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)
