DCCC Launches Attack On Limbaugh
A fundraising email sent out by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) this week is urging recipients to sign a petition demanding that companies pull all advertising support from Rush Limbaugh’s program.
The DCCC email reported that, during a discussion on rape and domestic violence, Limbaugh said, “‘No’ means ‘yes’ — if you know how to spot it.” Limbaugh’s camp wasted no time in firing back at the latest attack on the talk host by his critics, with spokesperson Brian Glicklich stating, “The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) email about Rush Limbaugh is an intentional lie, using 10 words carefully selected from his full comments to imply the opposite of what he actually said. It is a disturbing and cynical attempt to fundraise from the serious problem of sexual abuse.
Even for the partisan DCCC, this reprehensible behavior reaches a new low. They should apologize to women everywhere, and donate the funds they raised by this fiction to the real victims of sexual violence. We are waiting for their explanation.” At last check the online petition had attracted some 250,000 responses.
TRANSCRIPT OF LIMBAUGH’S ON-AIR COMMENTS:
“Consent must be freely given, can be withdrawn at any time, and the absence of ‘no’ does not mean ‘yes.’” How many of you guys, in your own experience with women, have learned that ”no” means “yes” if you know how to spot it? Let me tell you something. In this modern world, that is simply not tolerated. People aren’t even gonna try to understand that one. I mean, it used to be said it was a cliche. It used to be part of the advice young boys were given. See, that’s what we gotta change. We have got to reprogram the way we raise men.”
