Just when you thought Rush Limbaugh couldn’t get any more revolting, he goes and uses a rape analogy to criticize President Obama’s move to support filibuster reform! On Thursday, Obama voiced his support for Senate Democrats voting to require 51 votes, as opposed to 60, to approve judicial and executive nominees. Limbaugh compared democrats to a group of people where the majority decides it is okay to rape women.
The group has a rule that the men cannot rape the women. The group also has a rule that says any rule that will be changed must require six votes, of the 10, to change the rule. Every now and then, some lunatic in the group proposes to change the rule to allow women to be raped. But they never were able to get six votes for it. There were always the four women voting against it and they always found two guys.Well, the guy that kept proposing that women be raped finally got tired of it, and he was in the majority and he was one that [said], ‘You know what? We’re going to change the rule. Now all we need is five.” And well, ‘you can’t do that.’ ‘Yes we are. We’re the majority. We’re changing the rule.’ And then they vote. Can the women be raped? Well, all it would take then is half of the room. You can change the rule to say three. You can change the rule to say three people want it, it’s going to happen.
When the majority can change the rules there aren’t any.
Only a man like Rush could use such a violating rape analogy and feel comfortable in his own skin. But then again, we all know he just sells hate to profit millions of dollars. Propaganda must always be simple and repetitious…or in this case, repugnant.
