Rush Limbaugh went for what he called the “bulls-eye” when he raised thought-provoking questions about the far-left’s hypocritical stance on Islam and homosexuality on Wednesday, and demanded to know where progressives would like to “draw the line.”
“Militant Islamists command us not to draw cartoons or any other kind of picture of the Prophet Mohammed,” Limbaugh said while discussing Sunday’s terror attack against participants attending the Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest in Garland, Texas.
Limbaugh spoke to the left’s mindset, “It offends them, and we shouldn’t do it. And when anybody does, and they get shot at, it’s their fault.”
Limbaugh responded to the widespread criticism of Pamela Geller, organizer of the “Draw Muhammad” contest.
“Well, now, wait a minute. The same militant Islamists who do not permit the drawing of pictures of the Prophet Mohammed also do not permit homosexuality and do not permit gay marriage,” Limbaugh said.
Limbaugh singled out MSNBC as a prime example of the media’s devotion to the fight for gay marriage.
“Isn’t that insulting to the Muslims who would be watching?” he asked.
“Would it not then be understandable if the Muslims watching take some kind of action against MSNBC for offending them?”
Rush made it clear that he wasn’t advocating violence, but was trying to make a “logical progression” for those who refuse to look in the mirror at their own double standards and blinding hypocrisy.
“But if the left says that Christians, despite opposition rooted in their religion, must pay for people who want to have abortions to have them,” Limbaugh continued.
“If the left says that Christians must, say, like at Hobby Lobby, must pay for any drug or whatever is necessary that facilitates an abortion, even though they have a religious opposition to it, by the same token, does it not make sense that the left should be demanding that militant Islamists pay for these conventions that have cartoon contests with the prophet Mohammed?”
Limbaugh ended by asking the million dollar question for progressives who want to control everything, including speech, “Where do we draw the line here in areas and various different religions on what we’ll tolerate of them and what we won’t?
“I’m just asking,” he said.
