Aside from volumes of direct protests to what remains of Rush’s sponsors, Left Action has a petition going.
Reddit, Twitter and Facebook are ablaze with activity from people who recognize that even for the Limp One, soliciting for pornography on the public air waves is going too far for the people of America and an increasing number of his corporate sponsors.
Perhaps that’s why he issued what he calls an apology on his website. I’m not going to back link to his site. where I have checked to confirm that he issued an apology and that the text below matches what he said. But if you want to verify that this is, in fact, the full text of his so called apology, the Associated Press has it here.
“For over 20 years, I have illustrated the absurd with absurdity, three hours a day, five days a week. In this instance, I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situation. I did not mean a personal attack on Ms. Fluke.
I think it is absolutely absurd that during these very serious political times, we are discussing personal sexual recreational activities before members of Congress. I personally do not agree that American citizens should pay for these social activities. What happened to personal responsibility and accountability? Where do we draw the line? If this is accepted as the norm, what will follow? Will we be debating if taxpayers should pay for new sneakers for all students that are interested in running to keep fit? In my monologue, I posited that it is not our business whatsoever to know what is going on in anyone’s bedroom nor do I think it is a topic that should reach a Presidential level.
My choice of words was not the best, and in the attempt to be humorous, I created a national stir. I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for the insulting word choices.”
As the Limp One acknowledges he has been the personification of hate propaganda for twenty years. He has only contribute to the level toxicity in political rhetoric and political extremism in the Republican Party.
I’m sure people like Limbaugh, and his ditto heads who are so bent on spreading the virus of xenophobia far and wide see this as an accomplishment. No doubt, the idiots who send my little blog hate messages in defense of the Limp One really believe this sort of thing is simply harmless Christian fun.
Without question, they long for a return to the days in which women knew their place as silent subservients, be it in the kitchen or anywhere else.
There is no way in hell I’m going to shut up and get back in the kitchen. Based on the reaction to Rush’s comments this week, I can safely say others share my sentiments.
This so called apology falls ways short – much like certain parts of Limpo’s anatomy. (I’ll leave it to your imagine to determine which parts I’m referring to.)
The only acceptable apology would be for Rush to go the way of Glenn Beck – off the air waves and into obscurity.
