Rush Limbaugh told his male listeners to sexually harass women and blame their breasts for it.
During his radio show on Monday, right-wing pervert club leader Rush Limbaugh said it was “human nature” for men to ogle women’s breasts and that liberals were trying to ban men from even looking at women.
“I know a lot of you, you hear this thing — a bunch of leftists want to try to stop men from looking at women and you think, ‘they can’t do that.’ That’s not the point,” Limbaugh began. “Whether they can or can’t, it will gain momentum. And it may not be for years, but this is who they are. This is — this is how inane and inviolate they are of basic human nature. It’s one of the biggest ways to understand liberals. They just despise human nature and try to alter it and change it and create it. Because many of them just don’t fit in with it in many ways.”
So Limbaugh came up with a plan for men to ogle women: tell them their breasts were asking for it. That’s right, Rush Limbaugh advised men to sexually harass women and then blame their breasts for it.
“But there’s a way around this, guys. You got to have fun with this kind of stuff, as you know. So let me offer a first suggestion, the first way to deal with this that came into my mind. You find yourself staring, looking at, casually glancing at a woman, but you know that it’s now socially taboo. You shouldn’t be doing it. And you think everybody is noticing you doing it and condemning you in their minds. You shouldn’t — so you walk up to the woman and say, “Will you please ask your breasts to stop staring at my eyes? Try that. Might help. And you don’t know ’til you try it.”

This isn’t the first disgusting sexist comment uttered by Rush Limbaugh.
Is your skin crawling yet? This is just the latest in a long line of disgusting sexist comments by Rush Limbaugh. Here are just a few of them.
- “They’re out there protesting what they actually wish would happen to them sometimes.” ~Rush Limbaugh, on women who protest against sexual harassment, The Rush Limbaugh Show, April 26, 2004
- “A Georgetown coed told Nancy Pelosi’s hearing that the women in her law school program are having so much sex they’re going broke, so you and I should have to pay for their birth control. So what would you call that? I called it what it is. So, I’m offering a compromise today: I will buy all of the women at Georgetown University as much aspirin to put between their knees as they want. … So Miss Fluke and the rest of you feminazis, here’s the deal. If we are going to pay for your contraceptives and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch.” ~Rush Limbaugh, The Rush Limbaugh Show, March 1, 2012
- “I’m a huge supporter of women. What I’m not is a supporter of liberalism. Feminism is what I oppose. Feminism has led women astray. I love the women’s movement — especially when walking behind it.” ~Rush Limbaugh, responding to criticism that he is sexist and defending his selection as one of the judges at the 2010 Miss America Pageant, “Fox News’ Fox & Friends,” February 3, 2010
- “We’re not sexists, we’re chauvinists — we’re male chauvinist pigs, and we’re happy to be because we think that’s what men were destined to be. We think that’s what women want.” ~Rush Limbaugh, claiming that women want men to be assholes, April 15, 2004

The war on women continues.
At a time when Republicans are supposedly trying to learn how not to be insensitive sexist pricks toward women, it would seem Rush Limbaugh didn’t get the memo. And considering that Limbaugh is the de-facto leader of the GOP these days, that’s a problem. Rush Limbaugh just told men that they could get away with sexual harassment if they walk up to women and tell them it’s their fault. That somehow, women’s breasts are asking for it. This only makes the Republican image among women even worse. If the GOP wants to repair that image, a good first step would be to tell Rush Limbaugh to shut his mouth. Or better yet, they should shut down his show and run him out of the country.
It’s time for Rush Limbaugh to be permanently removed from the airwaves
This kind of behavior is unacceptable. Sexual harassment is already a cancer on our society. And you can bet that more sexual harassment will occur because Rush Limbaugh has given his mostly male audience license to do so. Enough is enough. Rush Limbaugh has been on the air for far too long and needs to be removed. The second largest radio broadcaster in the nation has already booted him from the airwaves. The only way to end his career entirely is to continually pressure the remaining sponsors of his program and lodge complaints with the FCC. If we want to help end sexual harassment, we need to silence those who promote it. To pressure sponsors of Rush Limbaugh please sign the Limbaugh Sponsor Petition. You can also visit the Stop Rush Database. And you can contact the FCC. Let’s permanently remove Rush Limbaugh from the airwaves for good. After all, he’s clearly asking for it.
