Rush Limbaugh has managed to alienate most Americans, cause an exodus of his advertisers and appear to be a genuine pig in front of the whole world when he called Sarah Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” last week. His new defense is going to give America a collective head slap. Rush says: rappers do it all the time.
After more advertisers left his show he was defiant and angry and wanted to vent his frustrations.
Limbaugh said in a post on his website,
“You talk about a double standard. One of the greatest illustrations of it is that rappers can practically say anything they want about women, and it’s called art.”
Limbaugh then adressed the issues with the media and morals,
“Every minority according to the left, every minority in the country is a victim of a tyrannical majority. Every aspect of the Democrat Party agenda is to reverse that, and what’s happening here is that everybody is allowing these winds to blow them over. And there’s no resistance to it…It’s the Democrats and the media that use the power of intimidation to get people to cave on their own morality, to give it up. All for the sake of avoiding confrontation or opposition.”
This is not the first radio host or celebrity to use the “Rapper Defense”
Don Imus, referred to the primarily black Rutgers women’s basketball team as “nappy headed ho’s.” Imus said that the phrase “originated in the black community,” citing the degradation of women in hip hop music.
Do you think Rush Limbaugh went way to far and is just adding fuel to the fire at this point?
