Limbaugh: ‘Obliterating Morality Has Been What the Culture War is All About’

Susan Jones at excerpted some of what Rush Limbaugh said last Thursday — here is some of it — follow the link below to read the rest and to listen to the audio excerpt:

“How in the hell did this happen?” conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh asked his audience on Thursday.

“We have men’s and women’s restrooms for a reason, just like we’ve always had marriage, and it’s always been defined as a specific thing for…time-honored and time-tested reasons. They were not the result of people who had power lording that over other people.

“These are processes and behavioral patterns that established over the millennia as proper, just, moral, correct, sensible, you name it. Now all of a sudden that gets thrown out, and it’s all up to how somebody feels about themselves at a particular moment in time as to which bathroom they want to use.”

Limbaugh said none of it makes any sense within a “right versus wrong” framework. He said it’s all about “us versus them.”

“And, see, I don’t think the culture war has been about right versus wrong for a long time. And people haven’t figured that out. They continue to fight it on a moral or a morality battlefield, but that’s not it at all.

“In fact, obliterating morality has been what the culture war is all about, not asserting it and not having it triumph. The whole point of the culture war is an us-versus-them framework now, and the ‘us’ is all of the disparate minorities of the world versus the ‘them,’ which is people they claim to be the oppressive majority.”

Limbaugh said liberalism is determined to wipe out the concept of morality, believing that no one has the right to define it.

“Nobody can write laws that are based on morality and have them apply to everybody, because your morality may differ from mine, and there isn’t any universal morality; there isn’t any universal right and wrong…

“So something as simple as morality and right and wrong has now become politicized, and therefore illegitimate, ’cause you don’t have the right to tell somebody what’s right and wrong. You don’t have the right to define morality — and if you do, then you’re a problem. You’re the problem. You’re the oppressive, old fogey, fuddy-duddy problem. Meanwhile, you think you’re just standing up for what’s right and justice and wholesome and good, and their whole objective has been just to erase all of that.”

Limbaugh said the cultural and political battles we face are no longer rational.
