Rush Limbaugh Takes To Facebook To Tout GOP’s Stellar Stance On Gays And Women; Just Wow.

by matt baume August 17, 2016


Wait, what’s this? Suddenly Rush Limbaugh believes that his party is the savior of gays, protector of all sexual orientations? What’s even going on?

Here’s what he just wrote on Facebook:

We have the Republican candidate for president essentially suggesting that if you want to come into this country and attack Americans because of their gender or because of their sexual orientation — if you have a problem with gays or with women or with any other minority group — we’re not gonna let you in. And naturally, the Republican’s being called a bigot.

Where to even begin? First of all, why are we even talking about Muslims coming to this country to attack people because of their gender and sexual orientation? This is not a thing that happens. We have plenty of home-grown American-born anti-gay extremists already. There are the parents who want to kick trans kids out of schools; there’s Marco Rubio speaking at anti-gay conferences; there’s Judge Roy Moore trying to block gay marriage in Alabama — the list goes on and on.

And maybe Rush ought to look at his own rhetoric to understand why Republicans are not just called bigots, but known to be bigots. There’s the time he called Barney Frank “banking queen,” or when he said of a gay Republican sex predator, “In their hearts and minds and their crotches, they don’t have any problem with what Foley did. They’ve defended it over the — over the years.” Or the time he said of gay marriage, “If I could marry my sofa, I might think about it.” And “at some point who’s to say that you cannot have sex with a child?”

Ooh, or how about this Rush quote? “I remember being laughed at and mocked and called an extremist for predicting that definitions of family–what constitutes family–is now wide open,” Limbaugh decried. “Pretty soon you’re going to be able to marry your dog–your dog is going to be an official part of your family who qualifies for benefits.”

And if Rush is wondering why Republicans would be called bigots, maybe he ought to look at his own party platform, which still opposes LGBT civil rights and defends ex-gay torture camps. Or he could look at his party’s candidates for President and Vice President, who spend all of their time palling around with Americans (not immigrants!) who want to destroy queer people.

So just in case you need a refresher, here’s why Donald Trump and Mike Pence are called bigots:
