Rush Limbaugh Decides That Michael Sam's Coming Out As Gay Means Heterosexuals Are "Under Assault"
Rush Limbaugh limply tried to connect a few tired arguments he's spewed before in a Tuesday broadcast of his radio show aimed at openly gay NFL prospect Michael Sam. It all makes no sense, but the gist of his jumbled-together array of homophobic talking points insinuates that heterosexual culture will no longer exist if a gay man is allowed to play football.
I don't speak douchebag, so tell me if something's been lost in translation.
“Heterosexuality has no political agenda and there is no agenda attached to it ... Heterosexuality does not have activists.” (Westboro, National Organization for Marriage, American Family Association, just for starters, Rush.)
“[Heterosexuals] may be 95, 98 percent of the population—they’re under assault by the 2-5 percent that are homosexual," he continued in a warning to listeners.
How does Michael Sam fit into all this, you ask?
Well, isn't it obvious?
Okay. It's not. So, here's what Rush said:
“Why is it OK now for a gay man to play football?” Limbaugh asked. “I thought it was dangerous and leads to concussions, that it was barbaric. I thought that it was too dangerous and leads to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s and early death, suicide, but yet … here comes the first announced gay guy and [it's] ‘Hey, cool, man, go for it!’ Why is it heroic for a gay man to play football?”
