Truth to Power

Raped? Rush thinks you’re a ho.

Limbaugh called alleged Duke rape victim a “ho[ ]”

Summary: On his national syndicated radio program, Rush Limbaugh referred to the alleged victim of a rape by members of the Duke University lacrosse team as a “ho[].”

During the March 31 broadcast of his national syndicated radio program, Rush Limbaugh referred to the alleged victim of a rape by members of the Duke University lacrosse team as a “ho[].” During an on-air discussion with a caller, Limbaugh said that former Democratic presidential candidate Al Sharpton was “trying to figure out how he can get involved in the deal down there at Duke where the lacrosse team … supposedly, you know, raped some, uh, hos.” Limbaugh’s made the comment about a recent incident in Durham, North Carolina, in which an exotic dancer was allegedly raped by three members of the Duke lacrosse team.

And today, Rush wakes up still employed. We’re mighty tolerant of sexist racists in this country, as long as you’re in the GOP- Gods Own Party.

F these fools and the bigger fools who listen to them.
