CNN Silences Rush Limbaugh’s CPAC Speech During Lisping Gay Slur

by David Badash on March 3, 2009

Out of nowhere, during his CPAC speech Sunday, Rush Limbaugh took a perceptable swipe at gays, mocking them, calling weak men “Castrati”, and lisping. CNN cut the feed. Here’s the speech, you’ll hear Rush lisping, then the feed is cut and CNN goes to its anchor, then cuts back again. 

Here’s the text of that portion of Rush Limbaugh’s speech, with the lisp bolded:

“Doesn’t matter to me what his race is. It doesn’t matter. He’s liberal is what matters to me. And his articulated — his articulated plans scare me.  Now, I understand we can’t say we want the President to fail, Mr. Limbaugh. That’s like saying — this is the voice of the New Castrati, by the way, guys who have lost their guts. You can’t say Mr. Limbaugh that you want the President to fail because that’s like saying you want the country to fail. It’s the opposite. I want the country to survive. I want the country to succeed.”

If I were the new leader of the Republican Party, I’d sure call out Limbaugh’s antics.

The truly homophobic slur is to assume that someone is mocking gay men when they use lisping, effeminate speech. He wasn't talking about Prop 8 in California, was he? He wasn't discussing Don't-Ask-Don't-Tell, right? Limbaugh says PLENTY that's idiotic, so let's keep our wits about us and use our voices wisely when we call him out.

Is Limbaugh gay? Could be as he cannot seem to stay married. He is as fixated by gays as Rev Ted Haggard, among others. And why should I care whether two same sex people get married! Leave people alone to form their stable relationships. There is enough divorce and instability among heterosexuals to consider using them as the only acceptable pattern, for example US Senator Ensign from Nevada. Just cannot keep it in his pants and has to go after his aide's wife. Now that's one sick puppy. And we depend on this goof to make laws for all of us and defend heterosexual marriage!
Oh, we must remember that Ensign lived in the "house" on C Street where he learned how to run his life in a Christian manner.
