Video: Sandra Fluke’s Testimony That Drove the Right Wing Crazy
Right wingers are spewing a huge amount of venom at law student Sandra Fluke, but it’s quite evident from Rush Limbaugh’s statements and the nonsense all over the right wing blogs that most of these people have no idea what Fluke actually said.
Actually, that’s the generous analysis — it’s also likely that they do know what she said, but are deliberately lying about it.
So in the interest of accuracy, here’s the C-SPAN video of Sandra Fluke’s testimony to the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee, on February 23, 2012. She actually begins speaking at about 15:20.
Here’s just one obvious example showing how the ranting wingnuts never read or watched her statement: notice that Fluke says she was past president of Law Students for Reproductive Justice. It’s the first thing she says, in fact, when she introduces herself.
But the right wing blogs are all screaming about this, and pretending it’s a deep dark secret they’ve discovered that totally discredits Ms Fluke.
