Rush Limbaugh as The Accidental Sexist (Yeah, Right)

From Rush Limbaugh's Website
RUSH: Do you know the stories about the things that this mayor in San Diego's been doing? I mean, it is jaw dropping. This is a Democrat mayor, the things that he has been doing to women for years is just jaw dropping, and there hasn't been any coverage of it. I mean, there's starting to be some now, but while it was going on, there was none. And when you read these stories, it is a textbook case of discrimination and abuse by a guy, a man with more power than the women who work near him, for him, with him. If you're gonna start teaching things in women's studies classes, this would be something to teach. I mean, this is textbook how this guy has behaved, how he's on getting away with it, as a Democrat.

I mean, the feminazis could use this to raise all kinds of awareness and money for another decade but they're not because he's a Democrat. So everybody's trying to sweep it under the -- this guy coulda probably called 'em sluts and nothing woulda happened to him. Ahem. We have 30 seconds to decide whether we want to let that go or cancel that out. We're gonna let that one go. Staff approves of that one, fine and dandy, it's there.

. . . This is what the feminazis have been teaching against forever, and they ignore it, because the guy is a good Democrat. And above all else, the party and the movement must be saved. In fact, more than saved. Not even harmed.

And you compare that to the just out of control, nonsensical reaction to a word that was accidentally used and apologized for, and I tell you, it is stunning. Where are those same exact people on this genuinely abhorrent set of abuses by this mayor? It's liberal hypocrisy and essentially liberal hypocrisy's not possible. Liberals are not hypocrites so it doesn't get talked about, doesn't get reported on.

How Many Times Did He Say That? Seventy Times???

I can comment on the fact that all good folks can agree that the remarks that were made don’t have any place in the public discourse. And you know, the reason I called Ms. Fluke is because I thought about my daughters, and one of the things I want them to do as they get older is to engage in issues they care about, even ones I may not agree with them on. I want them to be able to speak their mind in a civil and thoughtful way… I do not want them attacked or called horrible names because they are being good citizens, and I wanted Sandra to know that I thought her parents should be proud of her, and that we want to send a message to all of our young people that being part of a democracy involves argument and disagreements and debate, and we want you to be engaged, and there’s a way to do it that doesn’t involve you being demeaned and insulted, particularly when you are a private citizen.
