Yesterday, Rush Limbaugh decided to weigh in on a viral video that featured a woman who was catcalled over 100 times in 10 hours in New York City, and true to his prejudiced, inflammatory nature, he was dismissive and racist in his response.
“I was expecting some really boorish, sexist, dangerous, I was expecting some real real rotten conduct by guys and and I didn’t see that,” Limbaugh said. Although he admits some of the behavior was a bit crass, in general, “most of it, it was men being polite.”
You see, Limbaugh believes that men cannot control themselves, it’s an animal instinct that makes them catcall and harass women on the streets. “You see a pretty woman, you react to it, ‘hey, looking good today’” (Kind of like a special version of Tourette’s Syndrome that only affects hormonal men on city streets.)
Even though he approves of the behavior in the video, he wants us to be aware that the majority of the people in it are men of color, which has actually been a common complaint about the editing since the video went viral. “In the interest of accuracy, ladies and gentlemen the majority of men that are portrayed in this video are African American and Hispanic and I thought we were supposed to celebrate diversity,” he said. “Most of them are African American and or Hispanic.”
Yep. Rush Limbaugh is still a pig, folks. Good to know.
