Rush Limbaugh attacks Trayvon Martin’s friend Rachel Jeantel over comments she made on the Piers Morgan show, saying she called George Zimmerman a ‘homosexual predator,’ and warned ‘gay men go after children. I didn’t realize Rush Limbaugh was an advocate for the gay community. We may have another Sandra Fluke moment from Rush Limbaugh! Of course, the Drudge Report freak-out continues as Matt Drudge also goes after Maya Angelou for voicing her opinion, as though he could somehow walk in her shoes…..
Here’s an excerpt of Rush Limbaugh interpretation of Rachel Jeantel’s comments:
I thought, when I heard this last night, that that’s all anybody’d be talking about today, because this throws this thing 180 degrees out of phase. So now Trayvon Martin, who is the recipient of full-fledged, 100% victim status? It turns out could well be a gay basher, and the left has been defending him. So what do they do? They have two interest groups here that they represent and champion: African-Americans and homosexuals, and in this incident, the object of their affection (in this case, Trayvon Martin), might have thought he was being pursued by a gay guy and beat him up, or tried to.
I figured they’d be very conflicted today.
But that hasn’t come up anywhere.
Now I think I understand why. It’s precisely because nobody wants to get near it. Nobody wants to get anywhere near this. Those words of Rachel’s are gone, into the ether, never to be remembered until the EIB Network kicked off at noon. Now, one sound bite here before we go to the obscene profit break. This morning on CNN’s Newsroom, the anchorette, Carol Costello, is speaking with criminal defense attorney Mark NeJame about Martin’s friend Rachel Jeantel’s appearance on Piers Morgan Live.
Rush Limbaugh says Trayvon Martin could be a gay basher. Unbelievable.
