Beck and side-kicks smeared Fluke 1st last week on morning zoo radio show

On February 29th, 2012 Glenn Beck and the other two corporate stooges, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere, preceded Rush Limbaugh's attack on reproductive rights advocate Sandra Fluke on his morning radio show and website. Although at least three petitions are in circulation to demand Limbaugh apologize (he has, sort of)  and request that the companies advertising during his Premier Radio Networks show pull their ads (five have so far), no one, it seems, but Fluke has noticed that Beck and his side-kicks mocked and demeaned the Georgetown University law student.  Fluke, incidentally, said this morning "I don't think that [Limbaugh's apology], saying that his choice of words was not the best, changes anything, and especially when that statement is issued when he's under significant pressure from his sponsors who have begun to pull their support."

Why is Beck's  program called a morning zoo show with the three stooges?  Listen to them attack Fluke.

The following is copied from Beck's website:

“$3,000. How much sex do you have to have for your contraception to cost three grand during law school?” Pat asked. 
“You would have to have sex three times a day the entire time you were in law school,” Stu explained.
Three times a day? Who is having sex three times a day?
Well, as the guys pointed out you could have a disorder. You could also possibly be a prostitute. You could be abstaining from sex except for one day a week and having sex 21 times on a Saturday
“Who are we to say that’s skanky or slutty in any way? Good for you. It should all be paid for by us,” Pat joked.
“You want to have sex 21 times a week, go ahead. I don’t care,” Glenn said. “You should have to pay for (the condoms).”
As the guys went through her audio, she said she was on a “public interest scholarship” to go to Georgetown.
“She wants more public money to have a lot of sex,” Pat said.
“What kind of country do we live in? Where we can’t provide unlimited access to protected sex? For college students who aren’t paying in the first place to go to school! How could we live with ourselves?” Pat wondered.
It only got worse. Fluke said she got together a lot of the students and went to the university to say how much of a problem it was that they weren’t paying for her contraception. She said,  "expected that when 94% of students opposed the policy, the university would respect our choices regarding insurance.”
“Stop just a second. Here’s an idea. If I can get all the students to organize and we could go to the Dean’s office and I can get 94% of all students to sign up saying, I just want the degree without doing any of the work, we expect that. 94% of us want the degree without doing any of the work, (the university) wouldn’t go for it! That’s crazy!” Glenn exclaimed.
“94% of us want steak and lobster dinner every night for free and they won’t do it. We just expected it. Surf and turf every night,” Pat joked.
“I’m ready to get on a handmade boat and sail to Cuba. I can’t live in a country like this,” Stu joked.
“By the way, she’s talking about $3,000 a year that’s creating this hardship. $3,000 a year! You can go on the internet as I have just done to a fantastic website, and you can get any birth control pill for three packs for $80. So that would give you about, say, $25 a month. There’s another one for 20 Bucks a month here. You are talking between $700 and $900 for a year. Not $3,000 a year. That’s if you want the pill,” Stu said.
“If you want to have condoms and you are not having sex three times a day and you don’t want to go to Planned Parenthood that we’re funding for the free condoms… how many avenues?” he continued.
“We have to not only give them these rights but give them the way they want, where they want them, the store they want them, the pharmacy they want them, the classroom they want them. The position she wants to have it in, every single thing, we have to pay her for. It’s insanity!” Stu exclaimed
“This liberal mentality, this progressive mentality. It’s killing us. It’s absolutely killing us. Did you ever think we would get to a point where you would have this sort of entitlement mentality?” Pat asked.
First of all, Fluke wasn't discussing condoms. Next, the birth control pill, as she explained, is used for medical reasons beyond preventing pregnancy, a point ignored by these three stooges. All three ignorantly act like the pill is purchased once for each sex act.

Before Rush Limbaugh called her a "slut" Wednesday afternoon, Beck implied it ("sex 21 times a week"). The author of the article on Beck's web site wrote, "You could also possibly be a prostitute."  Limbaugh has caught virtually all of the heat over his obscene attacks on Fluke, but these three stooges are deserving of every bit as much heat. If you want to have Mr. Beck apologize, then let his boss at Premier Radio Networks, Mr. Kinchen, know you want Beck to apologize. His number is 818-377-5321 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting            818-377-5321      end_of_the_skype_highlighting.

actually taken other reactionaries

If you think that Beck and his side-kicks are just "entertainers" who are laughed at by their listeners, think again. The following are photo captured, and therefore unaltered, comments taken from the site where Beck proudly published this ignorant, personal attack on Ms. Fluke.

That is certainly mighty "Christian" of him.

So who's the slut here?

"Their not."  English isn't jojo's only challenge. What, exactly, does the frequency of having sex have to do with the cost of the pill?  Jojo, who seems to have created that profile to make that one comment, must be a male.  "They should be studying in LAW SCHOOL!!!!"  How can law student ever have time for sex...or for health care for that matter?

Anyone want to take up a collection to pay for tickets for Stu, Pat and Beck and their one-way trip to Cuba, or anywhere else?

Update, 3/15/2012: Premiere Networks, which distributes Rush Limbaugh as well as a host of other right-wing talkers, sent an email out to its affiliates early Friday listing 98 large corporations that have requested their ads appear only on “programs free of content that you know are deemed to be offensive or controversial (for example, Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh, Tom Leykis, Michael Savage, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity).”
