Rush Limbaugh has been racist, sexist, homophobic… you name it, for years. It seems to finally be catching up with him. Over the past few weeks, people have been outraged over Limbaugh’s comments to Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke when she called to express her favor towards birth control access. On the air, Limbaugh called her a slut and a prostitute, and said, “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.”
Now, don’t get me wrong- I absolutely abhor Limbaugh’s comments, and I absolutely believe that he should be held accountable for the hateful, inappropriate messages he spewed over the air that day. What I don’t understand is why we let it get to this point. It isn’t as if this is the first time Limbaugh has said something inappropriate.
