(Newser) – Patricia Heaton apparently agrees with Rush Limbaugh when it comes to Georgetown student and birth control advocate Sandra Fluke. The Everybody Loves Raymond actress tweeted a series of attacks aimed at Fluke last week, then deleted her Twitter account, Mediabistro reports. Some of the highlights, as preserved for posterity by Crooks & Liars, Angry Black Lady, and Fanity:

  • "If every Tweaton sent Georgetown Gal one condom, her parents wouldn’t have to cancel basic cable, & she would never reproduce – sound good?"

  • "G-Gal: you’ve given yer folks great gift for Mother’s/Father’s Day! Got up in front of whole world & said I’m having tons of sex- pay 4 it!"
  • Hey G-Gal! Change major to Health Sciences, then look at pix of people w/syphilis, gonorrhrea [sic], herpes, and chlamydia! Instant birth control!
  • "Hey G-Town: stop buying toothpaste, soap, and shampoo! You'll save money, and no one will want to sleep with you!"
  • "Hey G-Town Gal: Plz let us also pay for your Starbucks, movie theater tickets, and your favorite hot wings combo deal at KFC! Anything else?"

In communist China the government kills people they don't agree with. The same is true here, metephorically. "Sit down children , today's lesson is on hypocricy and intolerance"." Remember the meaning of hypocricy?" "Yes johnny" , "well I read that it is someone accusing someone else of the same thing they are doing". "That is correct", "beware of becoming a hypocrite, it may not sound that bad, but it a scurge in our world and is reponsible for many deaths". "Can someone give an example". "Yes Mary" "Well I read that some people said very bad things about a christian person ,who told people, in a very nice voice about what he believed" "But the people said he could not believe that, he had to believe only what they believed" "Yes that is a good example" "Because we live in a country where people can say what they believe,and don't have to worry that they might get killed for it" "So If say what I believe I won't get killed for it?" 'That is right , but it is a very fragile freedom, and there are some people that don't believe in it" "Why"? "Well I have thought about this alot, and I think that some people need you to accept their beliefs and behavior , so they can feel better about it" There is no better example of hate and intolerance than I see written in this column. This is the gold standard of bigotry and hypocricy, pure and evil. I don't know anything about this guy. But it is easy to see where the real hate is and it isn't him. He didn't say anything like this to anyone.Christianaphobics are worse then homophobics by far. The standard to be a homophobic is to simply have a different opinion. I am sure there are people here that wrote about Rush to say how stupid and intolerent he is.Hard to believe America has degenerated this far.

Buy your own birth control! Who needs Government in on every issue in one's life. And even if it's 3k to buy birth control (you can find many more inexpensive ways) It's still only 3k!
