(by Patrick Howley, DAILY CALLER) It must be an election year. Democrats are boycotting Rush Limbaugh again.
The Washington-based Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is actively working to shut down a private business by sending out its “Tell Companies: Drop Your Rush Limbaugh Ads” activist campaign, which hinges on comments the top-rated radio legend made in a riff mocking Ohio State University’s new sexual assault policy on campus. They’re sending out petitions and they even have a running clock in the bodies of their emails counting how many people have signed up to repudiate Rush. So what did he say?
“Let‘s be clear: Rush Limbaugh is advocating for the tolerance of rape,” the DCCC email said in bold.
That’s not true. It is certainly not at all “clear” that that’s what Rush Limbaugh did. (RELATED: Gavin McInnes On Why Politically Correct Outrage Is Like The Mob)
“Seduction used to be an art,” Rush said before reading aloud the Ohio State consent guidelines: “The absence of no does not mean yes. It must be asked every step of the way. It cannot be implied or assumed even in the context of a relationship, and the absence of no does not mean yes.” After reading some more, he realized that under progressives’ own guidelines “So as long as the girl’s thirteen she can give consent for sex provided it’s creative and enthusiastic.” Rush seethed in his chair at a progressive culture that would permit sex with thirteen-year olds. “Consent must be freely given, can be withdrawn at any time, and the absence of no does not mean yes.”
“How many guys, in your own experience with women, have learned that no means yes if you know how to spot it?” is the line Media Matters for America, the George Soros-funded media monitoring organization in Washington, D.C., first highlighted within the transcript of Rush’s monologue and flagged for its cohorts in the mainstream media. “People aren’t even going to try to understand that one. It used to be a cliche. It used to be part of the advice young boys were given. But see that’s what we’ve got to change. We have got to re-program the way we raise men.”
