Fox Nation Commenters Spew Hatred and Racism at First Lady Michelle Obama

Yet another disgusting deluge of open racism
Wingnuts • Views: 47,038

First Lady Michelle Obama is helping raise money for the presidential campaign by doing photo sessions, at $5K a pop. This is completely standard practice, not unusual at all in an election season.

But at Fox Nation, the official Fox News forum, it’s the occasion for yet another deluge of vile racism, right out in the open, in your face. Again, we see the deliberately misspelled slurs to avoid racist word filters, numerous comparisons to chimps and other primates, comparisons to “Sasquatch” and “Wookies,” blatant misogyny, and vicious stereotypes about African Americans. And many of the most disgusting comments are rated highly by other users.

Brought to you by Fox News: $5K for Photo With Michelle Obama - Michelle Obama - Fox Nation.

This is the photo Fox Nation chose to get the racists started:

i can go to the zoo and get my picture taken with a Chimp.. same thing.

[…]

ha. people have been trying to get a picture of bigfoot for years… but what makes her think her picture is worth that much money?

[…]

Who in the he11 would be stupid enough to pay this Ghetto Queen any money at all to have a picture taken with her ?

[…]

Is Michelle Gorilla Cookies off her hormone treatments again?

[…]

I wouldn’t pay 5 cent to have my picture taken with Aunt J’obama.

[…]

Why bother? There’re plenty of the similar in zoo.

[…]

Who in h—- wants to have a picture taken with the first Sasquatch? I’m sure Chris Matthews and Al Sharpton will be first in line.

[…]

I’d much rather take my family for a picnic at the zoo and have a
family pic taken in front of the primate cage for FREE!

[…]

roger that, just look at her face in this picture alone, reminds one of good ole Fred Sanford telling Esther “I could stamp your face in dough and make gorilla cookies”

[…]

another first for this administration pimpyourwife for money. she would suckoff a aircraft carrier of men in order to keep go on vacations on our dime

[…]

We could put her in a row boat filled with food and medicine and white women and not even the Somilias would pirate it.

[…]

that would be like attacking big foot, not a good idea!

[…]

A university lecturer once recalled the cannibalistic tendencies among a certain tribe in Western Kenya. “This was long ago when communities still waged wars against each other,” she told an attentive class deviating from the normal literature lectures. “In this community, well endowed women were and are still highly regarded,” she said. During times of war and in the event of famine the women were often forced to slice off a part of their fatty bodies to feed the warriors. “In this way they had share of the ultimate victory because they fed the warriors,” she said” (So, this is why Obama chose a woman with Big Hipps)

[…]

This may also be the reason why so many Bla ck Women have such huge rearends. Over thousands of years, nature saw the need for larger hind ends and evolve so these women would have much bigger arses, to feed the troops.

[…]

No I am going to stick with theory of sitting on their rears, getting welfare and going to McDonalds and having as many offspring as possible to increase said welfare check.

[…]

I wonder which clown face she will make for the picture? Will she have her painted eyebrows on? Will she wear one of her greasy, filthy wigs, or will it be the “doorknob” hair do? Which ill fitting get-up will she wear for the occasion?

[…]

Soliciting for money by selling one’s body has another name.

[…]

woud that be called a hoe!

[…]

i didn’t think national geographic had that much extra spending money.

[…]

So … how much does it cost to breed that horse??? Hummm??

[…]

I would pay for a picture of the shaved faced Wookeei ki ssing my a ss.

[…]

Who in the he ll would pay to have their picture taken with a shaved faced Wookeei?

[…]

Look folks, you can get a cheaper and better picture by going to the ape house at your local zoo.

[…]

I’d pay the five grand, in fact I’d pay ten grand for a pic of sasquatch kissing my bare azzzzzzz!!!!!!!!!!

[…]

That photo was taken right out of PLANET OF THE APES!

[…]

A little advice that will give you the same result and save you $5000, GO TO THE ZOO

[…]

A picture with Chewbacca, are you kidding me?

[…]

5 K for a picture with a buffarillo. Apologies to Buffalo and gorillas

[…]

Fact is you could not pay me enough to have my photo taken with the Wookie

[…]

Why does everyone here place zoo animals in such disregard?

[…]

10 k for doggie style .

[…]

The Pimp-in-Chief and
The First Hoe!
When will the hoettes join in?

[…]

More proof positive that Stymie and Seabiscuit are FOR SALE.

[…]

I wonder if she will take payments in food stamps?

[…]

A photo
Of the Hoe in Chief!

[…]

Asked if she would drink a Jack In The Box Bacon Milkshake, FLOTUS Say :

NOT WIDOUT A COUPLE A SWEET YAMS AN A MESSA GREENS’

[…]

Don’t stick your hand in the cage when you get your picture taken with the lowland gerila.

[…]

Pimping ain’t easy!

[…]

He//, I can go to the gorilla display at the zoo and get it done for nothing.

[…]

Or an organ grinder monkey. Tin cup, cute little red Fez

[…]

I would pay $5k for a photo of Rumba Rump eating a banana.

[…]

they can leave the getto but seems they will (anyone who use’s “african -” before american anyway) drag the getto with them, no matter where they were born

[…]

I can go to the zoo and get a picture with her twin for free

[…]

I would rather pay $5K to have a picture with Cheetah.

[…]

go to your local zoo and have your pic taken with the resident Bonobo and you have the exact same thing for nothing.

[…]

Just go to the nearest zoo and get a chimpanzee excited before taking it’s picture. Same thing, but cheaper.

[…]

That’s the only way I would take a picture with this chimp. If they pay me $5000. LOL.

The thing about this rancid hate speech is that it’s not unusual at Fox News websites. Every single time there’s an article posted about Michelle Obama (or just about any black person) you’ll see exactly the same kinds of bigoted, overtly racist comments.

This is kind of funny:

Michelle Obama grew up upper-lower class or lower-middle class, her father was employed, her parents were together. Her mom was strict, banning television and being a martinet about doing homework. Michelle got into a gifted class and then into a magnet school. She and her brother both skipped a grade.

So is that what 'getto' is? Being ambitious, driven, successful, and disciplined?

I don't like the ape comments, I know I call her sasquatch, but that does not mean the same as ape. I can't stand the sight of her for a trillion reasons, wouldn't p1$$ on her if she was on fire, but one of those trillion reasons is not her skin color. Same goes for the pig in the WH! hey are disgusting people and enemies of freedom, and blatant racists, but I am not interested in skin color! Sorry, but I just don't like the ape comments.

Philly.com, the Philadelphia Inquirer's website, has been on a roll lately with this sort of horseshit. There's always a fair amount of racial tension in Philly that gets reflected in their article comments, but the hood-n-burning-cross set has really been vocal lately. Unabashed racial hatred that would make George Wallace blush.

They never seem to get tired of the idea that the Obama administration is going to force them to do something. Every bit of public relations encouragement for healthy eating and exercise that comes from the First Lady is taken as evidence that big gubmint is going to snatch the bacon from their hands and only allow arugula snacks.

Prime Minister Mario Monti has announced the Vatican must pay taxes on non-religious property, from which it previously enjoyed an exemption.

The annual cost could be up to 720m euros ($945m; £598m) according to municipal government bodies.

Italy's Catholic Church has 110,000 properties, worth about 9bn euros.

It includes shopping centres and a range of residential property.

Well, Think Progress now has a summary of the most offensive things that Buchanan said before he was fired.

Why MSNBC Dumped Pat Buchanan: His 10 Most Outrageous Statements

These ones pissed me off the most.

4. Said the Jewish population in the United States dropped in the 90s because Jews aborted all their babies. Buchanan explains that the decline in the American Jewish population during the 1990s (a decline that a Brandeis study says never occurred), “is a result of the collective decision of Jews themselves. From Betty Friedan to Gloria Steinem in the 1970s to Ruth Bader Ginsburg today, Jewish women have led the battle for abortion rights. The community followed.”

5.Asserted Anders Breivik, who murdered 77 people including 69 teens in Norway, “may have been right.” Buchanan called Breivik a coward, evil, and cold-blooded, and then proceeded to defend his twisted rationale for the killings: “As for a climactic conflict between a once-Christian West and an Islamic world that is growing in numbers and advancing inexorably into Europe for the third time in 14 centuries, on this one, Breivik may be right.”

8.Argued that Poland and the United Kingdom had it coming in World War II. Buchanan seems to suggest in a 2009 column that World War II—and all the atrocities that accompanied it—was really the fault of Poland and Britain, for refusing to engage in diplomacy with Germany. “Why did Warsaw not negotiate with Berlin, which was hinting at an offer of compensatory territory in Slovakia? Because the Poles had a war guarantee from Britain that, should Germany attack, Britainand her empire would come to Poland’s rescue.”

9.Dabbled in Holocaust denial. Pat Buchanan danced alarmingly close to denying key facts of the Holocaust. In a 1990 column for the New York Post, he defended convicted Nazi war criminal Ivan Demjanjuk (whom he later compared to Jesus Christ) against charges from Holocaust survivors that he was guilty of murder by accusing the survivors of misremembering all of it: “This so-called ‘Holocaust Survivor Syndrome’ involves ‘group fantasies of martyrdom and heroics.’ Reportedly, half of the 20,000 survivor testimonies in Yad Vashem memorial in Jerusalem are considered ‘unreliable,’ not to be used in trials[…]The problem is: Diesel engines do not emit enough carbon monoxide to kill anybody.”

10. Argued Hitler was an individual of “great courage.” That’s just one of the quotes that the Anti-Defamation League attributes to Buchanan in their compendium of offensive remarks from Buchanan over the years. In 1977, he qualified his labeling of Hitler as racist and anti-semitic by adding that “he was also an individual of great courage, a soldier’s soldier in the Great War, a leader steeped in the history of Europe, who possessed oratorical powers that could awe even those who despised him[…]His genius was an intuitive sense of the mushiness, the character flaws, the weakness masquerading as morality that was in the hearts of the statesmen who stood in his path.”

It is strange to witness how easily the Stormfront crowd moves between Faux Gnus and Stormfront. Murdoch should rename his propaganda machine: Crazy People R Us.

And yet, you have Daniel Larison in your list of favorite blogs. He recommends Lew Rockwell, Taki Theodoracopulos, Joe Sobran, and other racist paleoconservatives, as well as The American Conservative, which publishes Pat Buchanan. What's up with that?

4. Said the Jewish population in the United States dropped in the 90s because Jews aborted all their babies. Buchanan explains that the decline in the American Jewish population during the 1990s (a decline that a Brandeis study says never occurred), “is a result of the collective decision of Jews themselves. From Betty Friedan to Gloria Steinem in the 1970s to Ruth Bader Ginsburg today, Jewish women have led the battle for abortion rights. The community followed.”

The decline in the Jewish population from 1987-1996 was totally my fault. I stopped giving birth in 1987, and my daughter had her first baby in 1996.

So, I will accept the blame for that time period. However the Jewish population surge is back on track again.

Yet, I'm Jewish, so I have no such inclination. He's just the leader of a religious group. Some things he says and does may jibe with my own moral and ethical leanings, but plenty other things do not.

OT: For those TWC subscribers in the NYC metro area (and beyond I guess) who have been unable to watch the Linsanity develop at the Garden, good news. MSG and Time Warner have come to an agreement brokered by Gov. Cuomo and AG Schneiderman to resume broadcasts.

The end of the impasse will be announced Friday afternoon by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and executives of both companies. A settlement had been urged by Eric T. Schneiderman, the state’s attorney general. The governor’s intervention in the past 24 hours with James L. Dolan, executive chairman of Madison Square Garden, and Glenn Britt, chief executive of Time Warner Cable, accelerated the agreement, which is a long-term deal.

The blackout deprived many Knicks fans around the state of seeing much of the rapid rise to stardom of point guard Jeremy Lin — as well as the continued success of the New York Rangers. Friday night’s Knicks game will be available to all Time Warner customers.

The impasse began Jan. 1 with the companies disagreeing angrily over what Time Warner Cable would pay to continue carrying MSG.

The Obama administration has announced that it will not defend defend laws that prevent same-sex couples who are legally married from obtaining benefits. In a letter to Congress today, Attorney General Eric Holder argued, “[t]he legislative record of these provisions contains no rationale for providing veterans’ benefits to opposite-sex couples of veterans but not to legally married same-sex spouses of veterans.” “Neither the Department of Defense nor the Department of Veterans Affairs identified any justifications for that distinction that would warrant treating these provisions differently from Section 3 of DOMA.”

Well, what do you know - Former VP Dick Cheney has come out in support of same sex marriage in Maryland.

"By far the biggest boost came in the morning when Republican Del. Wade Kach, who was considered a sure-fire no vote, threw his support behind O'Malley's bill. Kach had voted against the bill two days earlier in committee.

The Baltimore County delegate said he reached his decision after mulling the testimony he'd heard during a nearly 11-hour hearing on the bill last week and watching how same-sex couples supported one another. 'I thought to myself, if my constituents were here, they'd have a different perspective on the issue,' Kach said. 'I'm sure of it.'

He also became the target of a last-minute lobby effort, and said his voice mail was full of messages from important people, including Mehlman, Bloomberg and an offer to talk with former Vice President Dick Cheney, whom Kach regards as a "great man." [emphasis added]

I went full-on Liz Lemon when I read that. "What the what?!" I said outloud to my computer screen.

Despite having a out-and-proud lesbian daughter, Mary, Cheney's politics have sent mixed messages to the gay community. Since leaving office he has stated that he supports same-sex marriage but would like to see the issue addressed at a state, not federal, level. However, as Vice-President, he remained largely silent when the Bush administration pushed for a constitutional amendment codifying opposite-sex marriage in case the already-on-the-books Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) was challenged in court. President Bush eventually abandoned the idea after winning reelection in 2004, but Cheney was branded as disingenuous at best and disloyal at worst by many in LGBT community. Has the former VP and sometimes St. Michaels resident changed his tune? Or is he just expressing what he's always believed, but felt he couldn't officially endorse until now?

The Obama Justice Department has concluded that legislation banning same-sex couples from receiving military and veterans benefits violates the equal protection component of the Fifth Amendment and will no longer defend the statute in court, Attorney General Eric Holder wrote in a letter to Congressional leaders on Friday.

“The legislative record of these provisions contains no rationale for providing veterans’ benefits to opposite-sex couples of veterans but not to legally married same-sex spouses of veterans,” Holder wrote. “Neither the Department of Defense nor the Department of Veterans Affairs identified any justifications for that distinction that would warrant treating these provisions differently from Section 3 of DOMA.”

Oral Contraceptives and Cancer Risk: Questions and Answers

Some cancers depend on naturally occurring sex hormones for their development and growth. Researchers are interested in learning whether the hormones in oral contraceptives affect cancer risk in women (see Question 1).
Some studies have shown an increased risk of breast cancer in women taking oral contraceptives, while other studies have shown no change in risk (see Question 2).
Oral contraceptive use has been shown in multiple studies to decrease the risk of ovarian and endometrial cancer (see Question 3).
Oral contraceptives have been shown to increase the risk of cervical cancer; however, human papillomavirus is the major risk factor for this disease (see Question 4).
The risk of liver cancer is increased in women who take oral contraceptives and are otherwise considered low risk for the disease (see Question 5).

Expert: Dr. Angela Lanfranchi

Joel Brind is a professor of biology and endocrinology at Baruch College and is the primary advocate of an abortion-breast cancer (ABC) link. While Brind is pro-life and his goal to prove an ABC link, he has published papers in respected journals on other human hormone topics.[28] He has fought against the legalization of RU-486 testifying at a federal hearing that "thousands upon thousands" of women would develop breast cancer as a result of using the drug.[29]

In 1996, Brind published a meta-analysis in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health (JECH) which was immediately criticized in a Journal of the National Cancer Institute editorial for concluding response bias was unlikely to have affected their results, "dismissal of the study's limitations, and their blurring of association with causation."[30] The amount of attention the study received prompted a cautionary editorial by a JECH editor.[31] After Brind's study failed to convince the scientific community of a causal relationship, Brind co-founded the Breast Cancer Prevention Institute (BCPI) in 1999 with Angela Lanfranchi,[32] a surgeon and pro-life advocate. In 2003, Brind was invited to the NCI workshop, where he was the only one to formally dissent.

“Women [at CPAC] will be future leaders, too, and I was dismayed to see how many of them either looked frumpish or like two-bit whores,” wrote conservative blogger Melissa Clouthier. “If, at the number one conservative conference of the year, young men and women are looking and acting like the cast of Jersey Shore, it’s time to reset the compass.”

So I'm cleaning up my desk, finding various bits of paper here and there with these RPG related notes I have made.

They look like the shopping lists of a mad man, or maybe an evil genius.

I'll be burning them, so future civilizations don't dig them up in some long forgotten land fill and ask "WTF?!?!"

Was the call center in the U.S. or some other country?

Call centers have a script that they are required to follow, their job performance reviews are dependent on how closely they followed the script, also the after-call survey!

Anybody see this? Its making the rounds on the right recently. Anybody know enough about women's health to address it?

American Cancer Society

What's Already Known: Scientists have known for some time that birth control pills protect against ovarian cancer, and that certain lifestyle factors may affect risk. Age, weight, and a woman's reproductive and family history also appear to play a role in the likelihood a woman might develop ovarian cancer.

However, there's also some data that suggests oral contraceptive use increases the risk of other cancers. Cervical cancer has been linked to long-term birth control pill use, as has breast cancer. (For more information, see "What are the Risk Factors for Cervical Cancer?" and "What are the Risk Factors for Breast Cancer?")

But the picture is complicated. "Oral contraceptives slightly and temporarily increase the risk of breast and cervical cancer. However, the slight increase in breast cancer occurs during and in the 5 years following the use of these contraceptives, and usually at a time and age when risk is very low," said Debbie Saslow, PhD, director of breast and gynecological cancers at the American Cancer Society.

[Link: www.cancer.org...]

Bottom line: May protect against some cancers and may slightly increase risk of others with long term use. Certainly not up there with tobacco use.
Most women are aware of these risks.

re: #65 ProGunLiberal

9.Dabbled in Holocaust denial. Pat Buchanan danced alarmingly close to denying key facts of the Holocaust. In a 1990 column for the New York Post, he defended convicted Nazi war criminal Ivan Demjanjuk (whom he later compared to Jesus Christ) against charges from Holocaust survivors that he was guilty of murder by accusing the survivors of misremembering all of it: “This so-called ‘Holocaust Survivor Syndrome’ involves ‘group fantasies of martyrdom and heroics.’ Reportedly, half of the 20,000 survivor testimonies in Yad Vashem memorial in Jerusalem are considered ‘unreliable,’ not to be used in trials[…]The problem is: Diesel engines do not emit enough carbon monoxide to kill anybody.”

Note that the 20,000 bit was lifted straight from denial publications:

Yeah, but those under 25 CPAC girls dress like whores don'tcha know:

I have a weird opinion on this.

Dressing like two-bit whores does not make a woman one, however, asking for $.25 as payment for a sex act does.

Dressing like a two-bit whore is not justification for a man to treat a woman as a two-bit whore, nor is it justification for verbal or physical abuse or rape.

Two-bit whores should not be treated to verbal and physical abuse either, they should be given a leg up to improve their life and get out of the sex trade.

So fuck off all you right wing ninnies who disparage women for how they dress.

The Religious Right, Sonograms and Conscience Clauses

The same people pushing for these mandatory sonogram bills have also been pushing for years for “conscience clauses” to allow people to refuse to perform medical procedures or even dispense medication if it violates their religious beliefs, like allowing pharmacists to refuse to fill prescriptions for birth control. So what do you suppose they would say if a doctor refused to perform this government-mandated invasive sonogram as a matter of conscience?

Oh I think I am intelligent enough to read Larison for his foreign policy analysis, I think being informed on what the smarter Republicans think about issues that are not related to abortion, guns and the flag keeps me informed about them, somewhat. I read Bruce Bartlett too! But I am not a libertarian. Sorry! I read a variety of blogs and books, yes books! Just finished Harold Ickes Sr. policy book "Fightin' Oil" I bought the first edition at Powell's. It's awesome, no one currently in our government writes like that, too bad too. I hope my liberal cred will be improved on that alone, but if that doesn't do it, I did work for Jerry Brown's campaign in 1992. Also I love Andy Cohen.
*shrugs shoulders wanders off to make some hummus

I wasn't challenging your intelligence or your liberal cred. I was just trying to make sense of your comment in light of your link to Larison on your blog. Sure, being well-read, including a variety of sources, is a good thing, but listing Larison among your favorites is more like a recommendation. You snarked about Buchanan in your comment, yet you recommend someone who publishes at his site.

Really, I just want to understand it. I've seen intelligent, well-read people before who liked Larison, but the man is a "proud" member of the League of the South:

Let me take this opportunity to say a few words about the League of the South, a group to which I am proud to belong for these past ten years.

How can the rest of his commentary carry any weight with reasonable people?

By far the biggest boost came in the morning when Republican Del. Wade Kach, who was considered a sure-fire no vote, threw his support behind O'Malley's bill. Kach had voted against the bill two days earlier in committee.

The Baltimore County delegate said he reached his decision after mulling the testimony he'd heard during a nearly 11-hour hearing on the bill last week and watching how same-sex couples supported one another. "I thought to myself, if my constituents were here, they'd have a different perspective on the issue," Kach said. "I'm sure of it."

He also became the target of a last-minute lobby effort, and said his voice mail was full of messages from important people, including Mehlman, Bloomberg and an offer to talk with former Vice President Dick Cheney, whom Kach regards as a "great man." All three are recognized for their support of gay rights issues.

IP addresses actually aren't that useful for blocking; with a lot of Internet connections, it's too easy to get a new one.

But Fox uses the Disqus commenting system, which has lots of moderation features. They can block people individually if they choose to - but I've now noticed several names that often post the worst comments, and never seem to get blocked.

In some cases, the most offensive users are long-time Fox commenters with thousands of comments to their "credit."

Minnesota Vikings Set To Fleece Unwilling Taxpayers For New Stadium

Where is the outrage about tax payer money going to shit like this?

It's okay because it's the Vikings. Though they just got a new stadium a few years ago I thought...oh, that's right...the dome collapsed.

Wait...they've got an Indian Casino generously offering to help pay for the stadium...and that wouldn't cost the taxpayers a dime! (in taxes)

White Earth Chairwoman Erma Vizenor, at a Capitol news conference, said the 20,000-member American Indian tribe — the state’s largest — has desperate needs in health care, education and housing on its rural reservation about 250 miles northwest of Minneapolis. The tribe wants state lawmakers to vote to let them open a casino in the much more heavily populated Twin Cities, which Vizenor said would raise enough money to both alleviate tribal poverty and cover a taxpayer share of a stadium project that’s likely to run into the hundreds of millions of dollars.

I was just reading about the Constitution Party.

Daniel Larison is a well-known blogger in paleoconservative circles and runs the highly-trafficked blog “Eunomia“,which is supported by The American Conservative. Larison is highly regarded as a paleoconservative luminary and was previously supporting Bob Barr, until snubgate that is. Now he has endorsed Chuck Baldwin.

The objective in supporting Barr was supposed to be that he would provide someone who would unite both Paul-supporting libertarians with cultural conservatives who remembered Barr’s past record and wanted a conservative alternative to McCain. However, Ron Paul’s endorsement of Baldwin has made clear that the better candidate to support to pursue that end is Chuck Baldwin.

Larison also admits to being a member of the New Mexico Constitution Party, but casts doubts on the Constitution Party’s organization. He ends the blog post by telling people to vote for Chuck Baldwin for President.

Gary Johnson also endorsed Chuck Baldwin in 2008.

re: #198 darthstar

The reason Limbaugh doesn't have any children is because he goes on sex tours to third world countries where he can load up on oxycontin and viagra and get serviced by young boys and girls depending on his mood. The guy is a predator and it's only a matter of time before he's discovered as such in the US.

I've come to loath Rush and his ilk, but let's stick to the facts, OK? His Oxycontin use is a matter of public record and he supposedly did take a trip or two down to the Dominican Republic to have his way with some of the ladies (having to use some Viagra to get the job done), but him possibly diddling minor girls (or boys) is unsubstantiated (and possibly libelous) rumor.

We don't tolerate when the RWNJs make up shit about us, so why make up shit about them? When you have the truth on your side, lies and half-truths are unnecessary.

re: #208 ★★★★★

Esp. as addresses tend to be dynamic.

Well, it depends - a lot of direct consumer cable and optical fiber Internet connections have fairly stable static IPs that rarely (if ever) change. Big companies though, or universities, are often run with a pool of IPs. And mobile devices usually get a new IP every time they log on, also from a pool.

So there are plenty of ways to circumvent IP blocks, even without getting into the more technical stuff like Tor or anonymous proxies.

IP addresses are still useful in terms of developing user "fingerprints," though.

So by this brain dead logic, if a woman consents to having one penis enter her body, one time, she forfeits her autonomy and must allow for all penises to enter her body without consent, by force of gov't.

Oh. come off it...I never said anything about "age-appropriate entertainment", only that there is no evidence that Rush has been going after minors. If he has been down in the DR for sex, I have no doubts he was going after the younger ladies, but whether it was PedoBear young, we have no idea and no evidence.

But just how many politicians have accepted money from Comcast's political arm? In the case of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which held the first ...

The law, which was approved last year but never took effect, made it a crime for a woman to abort a fetus with a detectable heartbeat. Offending doctors faced up to five ...
