Rush Limbaugh keeps losing sponsors threatening his driven income, which has been valued at over $50 million per year. Last week he called a Georgetown student a “slut” and a “prostitute” “slut” and a “prostitute,” for attempting to testify at a House committee on contraception, arguing that women who ask the public to help pay for their birth control should post sex tapes online “so we can all watch.”
He tried to justify it all in the same way Don Imus did back in 2007, by blaming it on Hip Hop.
Rush said on his radio show:
You talk about a double standard. One of the greatest illustrations of it is that rappers can practically say anything they want about women, and it’s called art.
He just took it a step further, by saying:
“In fighting them on this issue, I became like them,” Limbaugh intoned. “Against my own instincts, against my own knowledge, against everything I know to be right and wrong, I descended to their level.”
My question to y’all, is Hip Hop to blame for Rush Limbaugh’s comments??
