RUSH: You know, I wish I’d have predicted this last week, because I knew it was coming, but I didn’t have the guts. I’ll tell you right now: I did not have the guts to predict it. I wish I had had the guts because it’s now made the news. I told some guys out in LA when I was out there last week, but I did not mention it to any of the local staff here, and now it’s happened, and it’s… (chuckles) Folks, it’s just mind-boggling as to what we are becoming, or what certain aspects of our country and culture are becoming.
By the way, did you see Senator McCain was on The View? I heard he was a guest. I thought he had joined the cast. He’d fit right in! Greetings, ladies and gentlemen. Welcome. Rush (hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee) Limbaugh here at the Excellence in Broadcasting Network. 800-282-2882. Okay. Here is the headline, and this is from BuzzFeed. Now, folks, this is… If I were to read the whole story to you, I would have to give you the usual warnings. “I’m gonna count down from five and turn the radio off.” There’s a lot of obscenity in this and I’m not gonna read it. It isn’t necessary.
Here’s the headline… Again — again — I mentioned just to a couple people, not even in the LA radio studio. I mentioned at the event that I went to the other night that I had to fly out there for, and I didn’t have the guts to predict this on the air. Here’s the headline: “There’s An Elephant In Harvey Weinstein’s Hotel Room —
“Buried beneath the sickening story of Harvey Weinstein’s abuse is another story — the problem of casting women by” how much you want to make love to them (that’s not what the story says) “and who that leaves out.” (chuckles) What do you think this might be about? (interruption) No, no, no, no, no. No, no. It’s… (interruption) Let me sum it up for you. There aren’t any black women that made the trek to Harvey Weinstein’s hotel suite; therefore, in addition to everything else this is, it’s racist. This illustrates and demonstrates the problem of African-American women being cast in Hollywood.
Because if the casting couch is the route — and if no producer wants an African-American actress on the casting couch — then there is casting couch racism. The elephant in the… (interruption) Well, there was Lupita Nyong’o. So there was… But that’s one versus how many of the…? (chuckles) I had not intended to… Folks, this just cleared five minutes before the program began. I was gonna start with tax cuts here. But I saw this; I said, “Damn! I predicted this.” It’s one of these instances where I was cracking a joke about the left and how they operate.
It’s another one of these instances where it came true. “The elephant in the room in discussions about the alleged crimes and misdemeanors of Hollywood film producer Harvey Weinstein looks eerily similar to an elephant of the past. It is the Race elephant… In Hollywood, where both racism and sexism are rampant, what can look like a sort of mitigated blessing ends up highlighting another insidious problem in … Hollywood: Black women do not often come up for the kind of prestigious roles…”
Let’s put this another way. If part of Harvey’s harem, if a proper percentage had been African-American, there would not have been a complaint about that. But Harvey, in addition to the reprobate that he is, also is a racist because he wasn’t inviting African-American women (laughing) to his hotel suite or his cabana or his shower or wherever else. Who is it that sees things this way? It is always the left. It is always the left looking and noticing skin color and surface characteristics. Here’s the bottom line:
Hey, look, if to star in a movie, you have to visit Harvey Weinstein’s suite, then Harvey is a racist pig ’cause……………….MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
