Here’s a news item for you: Rush Limbaugh opens big, fat mouth; says astoundingly dumb, illogical things.
Sound familiar? Well this time Jabber the Hut had some choice words about gay NFL hopeful Michael Sam, and the subsequent bile that spewed out of his mouth makes even less sense than usual. And that’s really saying something.
He begins with:
“Heterosexuality has no political agenda and there is no agenda attached to it. Heterosexuality does not have activists.”
Considering all Sam did was come out and say he wants to “own his truth,” we aren’t exactly sure how this already-bizarre statement has anything to do with the subject at hand. But please elaborate, Rush.
“[Heterosexuals] may be 95, 98 percent of the population — they’re under assault by the 2-5 percent that are homosexual.”
Too many holes to even see a functioning argument here, and again, has absolutely nothing to do with Michael Sam except in the rusted synapses of Rush’s logic center. But somehow he’s able to bring it around:
“Why is it OK now for a gay man to play football? 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?”
Ah, the decomposing meat of a truly rotten argument.
