Rush Limbaugh suggests ‘the left’ is too uptight about sex having to be consensual: ‘here come the rape police’

Rush Limbaugh appears convinced sexual assault is a bogus concept invented by "the left."

As Donald Trump was in boiling hot water Wednesday evening after numerous media reports alleged he has sexually abused several women, the boisterous right-wing talk show host appeared mostly upset about the fact that rape is illegal.

"The left will promote and understand and tolerate anything, as long as there is one element. Do you know what it is? Consent," Limbaugh said during his namesake radio show Wednesday. "If there is consent on both or all three or all four, however many are involved in the sex act, it's perfectly fine. But if the left ever senses and smells that there's no consent in part of the equation then here come the rape police."

Limbaugh could need a brush up on some U.S. law, since what he's blasting the so-called "left" for policing is what "the rape police" — also known as the police — must enforce according to chapter 47 of U.S. Code 10.

The statute asserts that any sexual act administered "without the knowledge or consent" of the other party constitutes rape or sexual assault.

On Wednesday, at least five women accused Trump of actions that could fall under what that law defines as sexual assault.

So, no matter what Limbaugh might think about sex and consent; he's essentially criticizing "the left" for attempting to uphold the laws of this country.


Oh yeah. You know a lot of them are thinking it. Consent is too much to ask for. That's like expecting a purple unicorn pony for Christmas. Ain't nobody got time for that. Just take what you want like a viking!
