Limbaugh to GOP: Don't Accept Caitlyn Jenner

The attacks on Caitlyn Jenner from the far right continue as gas bag Rush Limbaugh - the four time married defender of the "sanctity of marriage" - unleashed a rant against Caitlyn Jenner.  Limbaugh is beyond despicable not to mention a complete hypocrite given his own past scrapes with the law over his illegal prescription drug use.  If Limbaugh had any sense of shame, he shut his big mouth.  That, of course, will never happen since Limbaugh and his sheep like followers have no shame and no moral decency.  Politico looks at Limbaugh's foul attacks.  Here are excerpts:

Conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh thinks Republicans should reject Caitlyn Jenner, even if she agrees with them politically.

Limbaugh said on his radio show Tuesday that liberals are trying to “redefine normalcy” in an effort to stigmatize conservatives and that conservatives shouldn’t agree to their terms by accepting Caitlyn Jenner as a woman.

He likewise dismissed a conservative blog that wrote that Republicans should embrace Jenner as one of their own to seem more humane, saying that doing so would constitute falling into a liberal trap.
Under this system, “conservatives and Republicans are the new weirdos, the new kooks,” the pundit said, “and that is part of the political objective here in normalizing all of this really marginal behavior. I mean, if less than 1 percent of the population is engaging in it, it’s marginalized behavior. It isn’t normal, no matter how you define it.

Limbaugh had previously discussed Jenner’s transition after the former Olympian, then known as Bruce Jenner, told ABC’s Diane Sawyer that he identified both as a woman and a Republican, despite the party’s history of tension with the LGBT community.

“Maybe this is why God put me on this earth,” Jenner told ABC. “To deal with this issue.”
After the interview, Limbaugh said that liberals were pleased because they support “anything to upset these damn conservatives and Republicans that believe in their precious social issues.”

During the segment, Limbaugh expressed his belief that being transgender is “a mental illness,” citing the research of a Johns Hopkins professor.

Lionizing Jenner, Limbaugh said at the time and reiterated Tuesday, was a media tactic in a political battle between liberals and conservatives on social issues.

“This fits everything the media wants to do in terms of turning the culture upside down, redefining what ‘normal’ is, getting revenge against the majority for all of these decades of discrimination and mockery and disapproval and all these religious fanatics judging other people simply because of, quote, ‘who they love,’ unquote.”

 I guess Limbaugh justifies his multiple marriage and serial monogamy based on the fact that divorce and multiple remarriages are so prevalent among "godly Christians" in the Bible Belt.
