RFK Jr. Calls Senator Inhofe a prostitute- Media Outrage?

When Rush Limbaugh calls Sandra Fluke a prostitute and a slut on his radio show, he loses advertisers and outraged liberals everywhere demand that the FCC pull his broadcaster’s license.

However, when Robert F Kennedy Jr. calls Senator Inhofe a prostitute on Twitter, not only is there no media firestorm, but Twitter followers retweet his comments.

On Tuesday night, Kennedy tweeted:

Speaking of prostitutes, big oil’s top call girl Sen Inhofe wants to kill fuel economy backed by automakers, small biz, enviros, & consumers [sic]

Isn’t the bestowing of the name ‘prostitute’ on an individual exactly what the liberals are in a huff about? When Rush did it he was berated by the media. His use of the term was absurd and offensive. The same should be true of Kennedy’s use of the word right?

You might think so, however, when Kennedy was criticized over his Tweet, he once again took to Twitter and defended himself:

To my critics: What do you call a politician — democrat or republican — who sells the public interest for money?

Now when outrage erupted following his criticism of Sandra Fluke, Limbaugh issued a very sincere apology, twice, stating that his comments were outrageous and beneath him.

Despite this, a petition calling for the FCC to revoke Limbaugh’s permit to broadcast over public airwaves began on signon.org. The petition states that Rush’s use of indecent language is grounds for the revoking of his permit.

According to the stunning logic of signers of this petition:

“The lies and hate of a hypocritical drug addict are NOT in the public interest and are counter to the United States Constitution”

“People can be arrested for running thier [sic] mouth in a public place as he does on the radio.”

Others call his rant racist, sexist, homophobic, misogynistic- which leads one to wonder- how many of these people actually listen to Rush on a daily basis and/or actually heard his comments about Sandra Fluke?

The public condemnation for Kennedy? Non-existent. When Kennedy uses the same word, where’s the media’s outrage? Not only wasn’t there any- but some of Kennedy’s Twitter followers re-Tweeted his comment calling Senator Inhofe a prostitute.

Apparently, it’s not okay to call someone a prostitute if you’re a conservative. But if you’re a liberal, it is. Thus proving the media’s double standard for the left.

Or is there no outrage because Kennedy, a man, called another man a prostitute, while Limbaugh, a man, called a woman a prostitute? Well, that’s sexism. Aren’t the liberals always calling the evil conservatives racist?

Either way, to react so strongly to one instance, and not at all to the other is outrageous. So much for freedom of speech.

    Give him credit. He probably studied up on some home movies of his uncles JFK and two-pint Teddy before using the term.
