You’re right. Rush Limbaugh absolutely has the right to say whatever disgusting thought that comes into his ignorant, pea-sized brain, thanks to the First Amendment I utilize every day.
But guess what. So. Do. I.
I also have the right to hate him for whatever putrid thing comes out of his mouth, refuse to believe the lame-ass apology he made because his sponsors started pulling out and boycott any company or organization that supports him in any way. Just like you have the right to support his assessment of government-funded female birth control – though I don’t see Rush (or you) rushing (haha) to have Viagra removed from the list of government-funded medications.
(Hey, Rush! Doesn’t that make men on Medicaid or Medicare who are prescribed Viagra gigolos? So you, the taxpayer [ffs!], are already, in essence, a john. Worse! A john who patronizes male sex workers in dark alleys so no one will find out.)
Those companies and organizations have the right to choose to continue to work with him, and good luck to the ones that do. Maybe women’s rights isn’t as huge an issue as most of us think, and the movement doesn’t have enough supporters for the boycott of their goods and services to hurt their profit margin. But I’m going to guess by the number of huge companies that have pulled out, it is, it does and it will. If it hasn’t already.
So spew on, Rush. Keep being your usual self-indulgent, immature, hate-speech-slinging self. I think people are done ignoring the talk radio schoolyard bully and have decided to fight back.
Over your bullshit since 1980
