Sandra Fluke, infamous victim of Rush’s self destructive “slut shaming”, is considering running for the House in California.
Of course, the mainstream right’s base reacted exactly how you would expect them too - they lost their goddamned minds and spouted hate filled, bigoted memes, most of which have no basis in reality and are disgustingly offensive to everyone not themselves. Of course:
(EDIT: I’ve tried to pick out some of the least offensive and insane quotes from the article, which already picked out some of the least insane and over the top, misogynistic comments from the cesspool that are the mainstream right’s comments pages. However, I’ll use a phrase I absolutely hate and give a Trigger Warning for the below and linked articles.)
amerisad: Another sl u tty politician is just what California needs.
imspartacus: They have Abortion Barbie in Texas, now Condom Barbie in Kaliforinia. The dumocrap party is doing so well. LMAO
Tommie: When will she have time? She will be exhausted. The Navy’s 7th fleet can keep her occupied.
SKinGN: She will be running as the standard bearer for the Slut Party
joeblow: It’s a fluke anybody cares about this dopey broad. Also, why do lesbos need birth control?
SandyH20: This slut and Abortion Barbie in Texas think women are nothing more than vagina’s that others are responsible for caring for!
The GOP’s base wants a war on women, so much that some of them are actively talking about repealing the 19th Amendment. They are trapped in this spiral of stupidity, ignorance, and hate, conditioned to respond to anything with rage and disgust, no matter how trivial… and how made up the trigger.
And worse, the saner heads can’t steer the ship — Fox News, NewsMax, and a host of other professional grifters make so much money off this manufactured outrage that they simply cannot abide anything but the most extreme personalities in the party. We’re literally 2 or 3 election cycles from seeing the GOP become a minor, regional party in America at this point — if Texas flips blue or even heavy purple, it’s game over.
In other words… how’s that rebranding working out for you, GOP?
