Now that right wing boss Rush Limbaugh has attacked Sandra Fluke, a Georgetown student who spoke out in favor of women's reproductive rights, Fox Nation has joined the fun. They have posted a thread titled "Is Sandra Fluke A Fame Hungry Activist." The thread links to an article in the Washington Post article titled "Meet Sandra Fluke: The Woman You Didn't Hear At Congress' Contraceptives Hearing." The article is an interview with Fluke in which she describes how she wanted to share women's stories about lack of access to contraceptives and how those women, like the woman who lost an ovary, "suffered dire consequences." She also talks about "how willing some members of our government are to play political football with women’s health." Nothing in the article suggests that she is a "fame hungry activist." That is obviously the editorial position of the Fox Nation editors who are using the thread to incite even more hatred towards Fluke as shown in the comments of those who haven't read the article. And Fox Nation is a blog for those "opposed to intolerance." Give me a break!!!!! Funny, the same question could be asked about actual right wing activists like sting videographers Lila Rose and James O'Keefe and could have been asked about Andrew Breitbart - but Fox Nation doesn't and didn't ask it.
Unfortunately, as John Fugelsang has said, being a true Progressive does not allow us the luxury of hate, but these scum do tempt me.
