Being a leftist means you get to give a widely disputed one-degree rise in temperature the ominous handle “global warming,” then cook up a giant scam around it.
And in the leftist land inhabited by Media Matters, you won’t believe what passes for “obsession.”
Today they ask: “Why are so many media conservatives so obsessed with rape?”
Conservative commentators such as Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and Michael Savage frequently employ rape metaphors when discussing progressives or progressive policies. For example, Beck said that New Yorkers are “being raped by [their] government,” while Limbaugh, during a discussion of health care, told his listeners: “Get ready to get gang-raped again.
So what counts as “frequently” and “obsessed”? According to Media Matters’ own list of “evidence,” that would be… twelve uses of the word “rape” by Limbaugh, Beck and Savage. Since 2006.
One was in reference to the “Haditha ” incident. When some Marines were falsely accused of… rape.
Imagine asking some anonymous employee to look up how many times three talk show hosts said the word “rape” on the air for the last three years.Â Weird. One might almost use the word… “obsessive.”
