Limbaugh Complains About the Liberal “Rape Police” Who Demand Consent

We haven't covered a Limbaugh rant here in a long time, mostly because Limbaugh himself has become irrelevant, but this is one for the ages because it demonstrates that sexual consent is not a difficult concept to understand, even for right wing nuts.

Limbaugh and his ilk understand what it means to consent, they just think it's bullshit.

via Media Matters:

LIMBAUGH: "You know what the magic word, the only thing that matters in American sexual mores today is? One thing. You can do anything, the left will promote and understand and tolerate anything, as long as there is one element. Do you know what it is? Consent. If there is consent on both or all three or all four, however many are involved in the sex act, it's perfectly fine. Whatever it is. But if the left ever senses and smells that there's no consent in part of the equation then here come the rape police. But consent is the magic key to the left."

It's clear Limbaugh thinks this is a clever shot at the left, but he's absolutely correct that consent is the key to any sexual encounter of any description. Moreover, it's key that the person who consents is actually capable of consenting. Someone who is impaired for whatever reason cannot consent.

They understand what consent means, they just don't think it should be required. Trump's Republican party is effectively pro-rape.

    Yes, Rush. Consenting adults are free to do what they want in private.

    Why are you so opposed to personal freedom with no government interference, Rush?

    Every now and then, a right-winger accidentally stumbles upon a correct, actual, recognizable “liberal” position on an issue.

    Reminds me of a time when I read some random wingnut commenter, trying to be clever in the same way Rush does here, ask rhetorically and snarkily about abortion, “So a woman gets to decide who lives and dies in her uterus?” Yes, that is precisely correct.

    Usually they can’t, but every once in a while they accidentally get it.

      No. Occasionally they stumble into actually stating the liberal position correctly. But they still don’t “get” it.

        Fair enough.

    Rush figures “consent” is what you pay for when you take a wad of cash, a fistful of Viagra and Oxy, and book a quick sex vacation to the Dominican Republic. What a loathsome creature.

    Hey Rush “Fat Fuck Bastard” Limbaugh. It’s not the fault of liberals if women find you repulsive both in sight and smell. And probably touching and hearing (tasting is unfathomable on all levels when it comes to you). But then again, the Jeff Christie in you really couldn’t care, no matter what.

    Understands consent. Is offended by consent. Sad.

    These guys really do miss the Mad Men America.
