Rush Limbaugh should be ashamed of himself but the living swine-man appears to be pathologically unable to do so. His latest quote has been circulating online while garnering quite the negative backlash -- and for multiple reasons. Were his latest comments too far for even those who already swallow up his brand of hate?
"You know how to stop abortion? Require that each one occur with a gun."
That's what El Rushbo said on the air on Wednesday. The comment was in response to a caller's comment on abortion. There is no proper context in which to read this horrific statement. It is what it is -- and Limbaugh has once again proven that his ilk worship guns, hate women and devalue personal liberty.
Of course there will be the normal dittoheads who support everything and anything this man has ever said, but can even they get behind this statement? Can you literally sit and visualize what performing an abortion with a gun would physically do and then pat Rush Limbaugh on the back as once being "the leader of the Republican Party?"
If so, then wow. Just wow.
