Rush Limbaugh on Civil Rights
Conservative Talk-show Host
Limbaugh said on his show that Trump called him to talk about his comments last week that "America's still not ready to elect a gay guy kissing his husband on the debate stage." His remarks prompted Buttigieg to respond that he doesn't need lectures on family values from Limbaugh.
"Hell, the president even called me about this!" Limbaugh said on his show. "He said, 'Rush, I just got to tell you something. Never apologize. Don't ever apologize," Limbaugh said.
Limbaugh said he thinks people were upset about his comments because "low-information voters" did not know the candidate was gay. "There's a lot of people that don't know he's gay and that I sort of dropped the dime on it and let people who otherwise didn't know that Mayor Pete is gay," he said. "I think that's what they're really mad about, that I even mentioned it."
Limbaugh believes that feminism is a vast liberal conspiracy to spread conflict between men and women and therefore create liberal policies: "Feminism is a way to get men and women arguing with one another about other things and get them distracted. Sponsoring hate, promoting hate, is an exclusive of the left. They own it. They thrive on the promotion of hate and angst and contempt and unrest and chaos. It is the only way to distract people sufficiently so that the left can accomplish its statist objectives."
Later Limbaugh said, "It's the single most regretful thing I've ever done." But though Rush may have regretted mocking people dying of AIDS, he continues to denounce homosexuals and mock liberals in homophobic terms.
She was a champion of multiculturalism as chancellor of the University of Wisconsin at Madison. She supported a rigid code limiting “hateful” speech, but it was so repressive that it was even struck down by the courts as a violation of the First Amendment. Some called her “the queen of political correctness”-and those were her admirers. Such speech codes should be abolished. Limiting free speech in this manner is antithetical to the idea of America.
The reason is that they were Republican women. It’s not women that the feminists want in the Senate. It’s liberal feminists they want. The women’s groups supported Bradley and Simon for election, not their female opponents.
I make no apologies for taking issue with those in the forefront of the feminist movement, such as the National Organization for Women (NOW). Those in the leadership of the movement do not speak for anything close to the majority of women. “Their” interests are not the interests of the American female, but rather the political agenda of the feminist leadership, which is decidedly leftist.
I believe feminism started out as a genuine and sincere effort to improve conditions. The original concerns of feminists, such as equal pay for equal work, were laudable and justifiable. Then gradually there was a shift in their approach and in the type of women who were attracted to groups like N.O.W. The profile of a NOW woman came to be that of a loud, militant person whose views were based on the belief that women no longer needed men.
It degenerated to the point that men would wonder if they should open a car door for women. Chivalry had become synonymous with male chauvinism.
Anyway, after one year, the female members demanded their own exercise room. They were probably tired of being ogled by a bunch of slobbering men while they pumped iron in leotards and spandex. The men offered to install the first three exercise machines in the women’s new workout room. The ladies were thrilled. When they arrived on that first exciting day they found, to their stunned amazement, a washing machine, an ironing board, and a vacuum cleaner. Heh, heh, heh.
Let me leave you with a thought that honestly summarizes my sentiments: I love the women’s movement. especially when I am walking behind it.
