The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is using rape to build its email list – which translates into future solicitations – and it’s reviving an old stand-by to execute the plan: Rush Derangement Syndrome.
Liberals’ proven “go-to” money-maker, Rush Limbaugh, has a problem with Ohio State University’s new sexual assault code, and critics are already making hay out of his position, demanding that his sponsors pull their advertising.
After an ongoing investigation, Ohio State agreed to implement new rules to combat sexual harassment and violence against women on campus, Time magazine reported. Limbaugh called some of the provisions absurd.
“Here’s what consent is at Ohio State,” Limbaugh said on his radio program this week. “After you and your partner decide you’re going to make out or have sex, you agree to do it, then you agree – you have to agree on why. Consent is the act of knowingly, actively and voluntarily agreeing explicitly to engage in sexual activity.”
The “rules on rules” are not only confusing, Limbaugh said, they’re also unrealistic.
“The absence of no does not mean yes; it must be asked every step of the way. It cannot be implied or assumed even in the context of a relationship,” Limbaugh said in pointing out the ridiculousness of the code’s mandates. “Agreeing on the ‘why’ takes the romance out of everything – takes all the seduction. Seduction used to be an art. Now, of course, it’s brutish, and it’s predatory.”
The conservative radio show host then posed a good question: “Are all these not lawsuits waiting to happen?”
Despite what his critics allege, Limbaugh wasn’t defending rape or violence against women. He was simply reminiscing on the man’s traditional role in “wooing” a woman. He was commending the “art” of romance, longing for the day when women dreamt of a man “sweeping them off their feet.”
But that’s not how the Dems portrayed in the “sky is falling” email they frantically blasted out:
Demand Rush Limbaugh’s sponsors pull their advertising after his rape comments >>
During a rant on sexual assault, Rush Limbaugh asserted yesterday that sometimes “No means yes.”Sign your name and demand that companies pull their advertising from Rush’s program:Your Name:
Petition Signature: PENDING >>
Sign Your Name >>There’s simply no excusing Rush Limbaugh’s comments.I know you’re not surprised that Rush said something offensive, but Rush’s comments yesterday were truly heinous:
“[According to Ohio State policy,] consent must be freely given, can be withdrawn anytime, and the absence of “no” does not mean “yes.” How many guys, in your own experience with women, have learned that no means yes if you know how to spot it? … Are these [policies] not lawsuits waiting to happen? ” — Rush Limbaugh, yesterday
Comments of this offensive nature are inexcusable — especially at a time when our country is having a long-overdue conversation about violence against women. Plain and simple — Rush Limbaugh is advocating for the tolerance of sexual assault. He should be taken off the air immediately. sign your name and demand Rush Limbaugh’s sponsors pull their advertising from his program.Your Name:
Petition Signature: PENDING >>The women Rush’s comments attack — all women — are customers of the companies that advertise on his show.But this isn’t just a women’s issue. It’s up to all of us to stand up and send a loud, clear statement: there is NO excuse for sexual assault.So I hope you’ll stand with me on this. Tell Rush Limbaugh’s sponsors: if you want people to buy your products, pull your ads from Rush Limbaugh’s show.Thank you for standing with us,Steve
Of course, liberals took to social media, demanding that Limbaugh be ousted from the air waves for “hating” women. Some conservatives chimed in on Twitter, defending the talk show host. Here’s a sampling:
