Limbaugh: Women Support Hillary Because “They’ve Had Two or Three Abortions.” Also, Obama “Can’t Tell the Time of Day.”

posted by on April 2 at 12:25 PM

Right-wing talk show host Rush Limbaugh—you know, Hillary Clinton’s BFF—said on his show yesterday that women think Hillary’s “owed” a win because they’ve “had two or three abortions” and “cut men out of their lives.”

From the April 1 edition of The Rush Limbaugh Show:

Limbaugh: And if they — you know, if Hillary doesn’t get it — you have to understand the mindset of a lot of these feminists and women. They think they’re owed this — just like Obama supporters think they’re owed this. These women have paid their dues. They’ve been married two or three times; they’ve had two or three abortions; they’ve done everything that feminism asked them to do. They have cut men out of their lives; they have devoted themselves to causes and careers. And this — the candidacy of Hillary Clinton — is the culmination of all of these women’s efforts. And if it gets stolen from them, in their minds — not actually stolen, but if the country or if the Democrat [sic] Party rejects this wonderfully great, lying woman in exchange for a rookie, radical black guy who can’t tell the time of day, they are going to be so miffed. They are going to be so upset. These Democrats are absolutely right about the anger over all this, because they are — both sides of this equation think they are owed this nomination.

On the Hillary side, always women, the feminists. You know, they made sure they followed the script. Paula Jones was trailer trash. Kathleen Willey was insane. Whatever Bill Clinton did, they looked the other way; they stood for it because Mrs. Clinton was waiting in the wings.

This makes me think that Rush Limbaugh is a bad person.

the fact that limbaugh is a raging douchebag quickly overwhelmed whatever point you were trying to make. maybe that was your point.

How many times has Rush been married?

Rush is right! I support the troops! America is the greatest! McCain pumps my nads! Down with homos and feminists! Jeb Bush for VP!

What is really wierd is that Rush is actually right about this one.

Most of the twats that support Hillary do fall into this definition, although they resent it.

Solution? Don't be a whore, try to maintain a relationship longer than 5 minutes by learning to sacrifice for another person, and accept the fact that not everything needs to be a political statement.

I hate to actually agree with Rush about anything, but on this, he is correct.

These feminists have been married and divorced 2-3 times, had 2-3 abortions, and cut men out of their lives, but they haven't taken up witchcraft.

Which is why Hillary isn't entitled to the election.

So Rush Limbaugh is a big fat idiot...what else is new?

Im willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. If I were his wife, Id probably have 2 to 3 abortions under my belt and do everything possible to cut men out of my life. Wouldnt want to make the same mistake his mother made.

I don't get the "can't tell time" diss of Obama.

Is Limbaugh alluding to BPT?

And wouldn't Obama only be half-susceptible?

THAT is why I am an Obama supporter: I haven't had any abortions. DAMN!! But I did jack off twice today, does that count as an abortion?

I think it's retroactive abortion time for Mr. Oxybigmouth - anyone got a spare coat hanger?

Oh, and Ecce, you really are a loathsome piece of shit, aren't you?

It is offensive and off topic.

I second what Mr. X said about Ecce Homo. For the record, I'm a Hillary supporter, but I'm pro-life (gasp!!) and have a child with a man that I have been committed to for several years. I resent being labeled a "twat." You hate everyone and everything don't you Ecce? Including yourself, I'm guessing. I've never read anything but hateful crap coming from you.

I know you like to delete comments.

Please delete #19 for being off topic, offensive and threatening.

Thank you.

Why give RL more airtime?

Hmm. Seemed like run of the mill moronic Limbaugh bullshit, but that last paragraph caught my eye. Really? Did feminists in the 90s give Bill a pass on Paula Jones (et al.)? Did they do so because they knew that Hillary was going to run for president in 12 years? That seems like a stretch to me.

i always thought if clinton were a republican he would have been run through the shredder by feminists for his behavior, but who knows really. but the idea that they gave him a free pass because hillary would be next in line for the presidency is beyond a stretch. it's just plain dumb. but i'm not sure why anyone would be surprised that rush limbaugh said something obnoxiously stupid.

@23 - You're right about that. My sincerest apologies to everyone on here (with the obvious exception) for feeding the troll.

Re: Rush Limbaugh's statements, he's an utter moron. There's really nothing more that can be said about him. Except that I'd love to be given the chance to backhand him... I'm just sayin'.

Erica, you should be thanking Mr. Limbaugh for helping Hillary win Texas! If he didn't push his dittoheads to vote for her, she would have lost that state.

I hear he was encouraging Republicans in Pennsylvania to switch party registration before the deadline to do the same there.

Hillary owes Rush big time.

Does someone actually listen to Rush Limbaugh daily just to detail every offensive thing he says on Media Matters? They might as well just transcribe the whole fucking show.

while i've often wondered about the pass clinton got, it's disingenuous to think if he were a republican that rush wouldn't have given him "the benefit of doubt."

Then feminists don't hold the moral high ground.

In fact, they are as hypocritical as a whore in church.

OK, now that should be deleted, @29.

#30,

#29 was intended as a response to #28. In the case of the subject matter and topics at hand, it is quite relevant.

#30 on the other hand should be deleted. It offers nothing to the conversation whatsoever.

Erica, please delete #30.

@26: Despite what she says, HIllary did NOT win Texas.

If you were ever tempted to believe that the American public is becoming more knowledgeable or enlightened (ie. here) just listen to 20 minutes or so of Limbaugh. Despite being an ignorant egotistical moron, the guy has like 15 million daily listeners. Like it or not, he speaks for these fools, our fellow citizens.

Please delete comments 1 through 32. Delete this one too.

What the hell is wrong with devoting oneself to causes and a career? Other than Limbaugh's causes and Limbaugh's career, I mean.

Of all of Bill's somewhat credible scandals the Kathleen Willey episode pissed me off the most. She struck me as an incredibly insecure person and her story showed Bill to be a run-of-the-mill asshole who preys on weak women in order to get laid. I seriously doubt that he didn't know better.



However, the claim that feminists attacked Willey and Jones is as fallacious as the claim that feminists don't care about women in fundamentalist Muslim countries. We have always cared about women's rights in Saudi Arabia and Afghanistan, and we've cared about them a hell of a lot longer than any chickenhawk, war mongering, fucktard neocon.



It's possible that feminists didn't attack Bill as they would have attacked a Republican who behaved the same way, but Bill was a nominally Democratic president battling a majority Republican House and Senate. I can't blame other feminists for looking toward the bigger picture.

What I want to know is if you completely cut men out of your life how the heck do you get knocked up repeatedly? Is there a free floating sperm problem I don't know about or is it immaculate conception?

@14:

You mean, like, he's NOT still on drugs? These days, so much of what comes out of his mouth sounds like the incoherent rantings of your typical crack-head (or SLOG troll) that I can't really tell the difference anymore.

On the other hand, Rush, who's been married - and divorced - three times BTW, probably does know something about women who would want to "cut men out of their lives" - at least one particular man, at any rate.

As for the abortion accusation, well, all I can say is that Rush probably doesn't know much about those, if one deigns to give credence to certain rumors alleging that none of his three failed marriages were ever consumated.

Like Rush, I too believe that women who have 2 or 3 abortions per day are a disgrace. Which is why-

Which is why

What was the point, again?

as big a moron as rush is, i think commenter 6 has a point. there is some truth to this. maybe not the three abortions, but the lockstep ideological panties in a twist vibe of hillary supporters. his terms are crude of course, but i think he's dead on. yay for rush! boo hillary! hail obama!
