EDITOR:

Better watch your act, Mountain Democrat. Sandra Fluke is coming. Lucky for you she’s not running in this district. Otherwise, you wouldn’t have bogus McClintock to propagandize with any longer. One could only hope.

    Sandra Fluke is coming to . . . El Dorado County? Please post when and where.

    I heard Sandra Fluke speak before Rush Limbaugh made her famous a couple years ago as well as after she about five days ago announced her run for the California Senate. She provided a refreshingly articulate alternative to the bombastic misogynist Limbaugh’s attack on her because of her views on birth control. With a string of wives but no children, people could easily see how Limbaugh could have successfully used his personality for birth control. But Fluke is not running for congress and her state race is far away from McClintock’s safe seat. Yes, too bad.

    I was always curious about that event. For a dozen years or more the hip-hop industry has raked in a fortune creating "entertainment" that is the most degrading onslaught of perpetual slander towards women and not a peep from the left. Some guy on the radio uses a back alley term to describe some woman who publicizes her promiscuity and the collective left hurls themselves into traffic over it. Can you enlighten me? I guess life is much simpler being told not only what to believe but also how to react.

    Cookies65: Your assumption is in error. There have been extraordinarily large numbers of persons and groups on “the left” who have strongly criticized lyrics and themes in hip hop, rap and other pop music genre’s that are hateful of women as well as racist. Two well known names, although possibly more mainstream these days than radical, include Bill Crosby and Jessie Jackson. Essence magazine in 2005 was one of those who launched a campaign against sexism in hip hop culture with a major year-long series against sexism in music and it has been the subject of demonstrations on campuses like the one held at Spellman College to protest the appearance of a noted rapper at that school. One MSNBC talk host a couple years ago used a horribly offense term for one woman in public life but he immediately apologized in a long and well deserved on air episode of self-flagellation about his comment being totally inexcusable. Rush Limbaugh, on the other hand, was not at all contrite but continued to defend the indefensible, and repeat the same kinds of comments, over, and over. I think violent hate speech against women, especially when abuse remains a serious epidemic, is unacceptable from anybody, regardless of their political persuasion. Sandra Fluke would make any citizen who votes for her very proud.
