By now you all know that the leftists, particularly feminists, were angry because Rush Limbaugh said out loud what most Americans were thinking when they heard Sandra Fluke testify before Congress about the outrageous amount of money she claims to have spent on birth control. Well, I guess this is payback for all the grief the left has given him. He's never been one to back down from a fight.
From the article:
Rush Limbaugh has launched a Facebook page titled â€œRush Babes for Americaâ€ dedicated, according to the site, â€œto the millions of conservative women who know what they believe in: family, American values, and not being told by faux feminist groups how to think.â€
A play on the idea of â€œRush Babies,â€ or people who grew up listening to the program, the page had nearly 10,000 â€œlikesâ€ roughly an hour after its first post.
â€œAs you know,â€ Rush explained, â€œsometime later this month, the femi-Nazis are going to be working with Media Matters for America and kicking off some giant program, some coordinated plan, to have me taken off the air under the premise that women hate this program, and that this program is an unfriendly environment for women, and that this program laughs at, impugns, [and] makes fun of women.â€
He added, â€œI know that there are a number of you women in this audience who are fed up with hearing that Republicans want to take away your birth control.â€
After saying that the whole â€œwar on womenâ€ controversy was just a â€œdistraction [to] get people [to not] pay attention to Obamaâ€™s dismal economic policies and their results,â€ Limbaugh further explained why he is starting the page, and why he sees existing womenâ€™s groups are inadequate.
â€œ[They] claim to represent all women, and in reality they represent a tiny number of highly-agitated activist typesâ€“ basically miserable and unhappy women, for whatever reason. And theyâ€™ve turned them into liberal activists and agitators and community organizers. So I wanted to come up with a contrast to the NAGs [National Organization for Gals], to the NOW [National Organization for Women] gangâ€¦start this group dedicated to the values that most women hold dear: family, the American values of the founding, freedom, and capitalism, and most important of allâ€“ not being told by anyone else how or what to think.â€
