On his nationally syndicated radio show last Friday, host Rush Limbaugh blasted the #MeToo movement, saying it has never been ‘about protecting women from Harvey Weinsteins,’ but rather ‘it is about protecting abortion, a women’s right to choose.’
“See, I don’t expect the #MeToo movement to apply to Democrats. I don’t expect them to be consistent with it. I don’t, because the #MeToo movement is not about protecting women It’s like feminism has never really been about women’s rights. It’s been about liberalism and advancing liberalism,” said Limbaugh.
“This is not about protecting women from Harvey Weinsteins. This is about protecting abortion — “a woman’s right to choose” — and anti-Republican, anti-conservative. So if they were serious, then this Tara Reade babe would be immediately believed, just as Blasey Ford was, and Biden would be toast. The very fact that he’s not means that the #MeToo movement isn’t what it was portrayed to be when it began,” he added.
Limbaugh further commented on the allegations Biden has faced from Reade comparing them to claims Blasey Ford made against now – Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on day two of his confirmation hearing. “Everything that Blasey Ford didn’t have in terms of evidence and proof and that, this woman Tara Reade has,” stated Limbaugh highlighting the difference in facts surrounding the claims made by both women.
“Right. And so Blasey Ford was unilaterally believed and this woman is being thrown overboard. She’s being ignored. Blasey Ford never had to promise to take a lie detector test. Anyway… So, you know, I don’t buy this stuff when it begins. The #MeToo movement was never something that I thought was legitimate, like nothing the left ever advances is,” concluded Limbaugh.
