Limbaugh: As These Sex Scandals Hit Democrats, Notice Something About Media's Coverage?

On his talk radio program Monday, Rush Limbaugh thought it would be helpful to provide a quick "review of today's Democrat Party sex scandals," since it's getting a little tough for the average person to keep up with the seemingly daily new allegations. While offering his helpful sex scandal summary, Limbaugh pointed out what appears to be a pattern about the mainstream media's approach to the stories compared to similar reports involving Republicans.


"So the Democrat Party and sex, the Democrat Party and sexual abuse, the Democrat Party and sexual assault continues to be in the news today," Limbaugh began. "Under the banner Democrat Party and sex, Willie Brown has a follow-up column to his column last week where he said, 'So, yeah, I dated Kamala Harris. So what?' [for the San Francisco Chronicle]. Well, of course, that caused all kinds of trouble for Kamala Harris. Willie Brown writes today, among other things, that he was trying to send it packing."

Brown was trying to help out the Democratic presidential candidate "by getting it out there and ending it," said Limbaugh. Unfortunately, he "miscalculated" and, despite his best efforts, the story took on a life of its own.

Next up on the sex scandal list: the accusation against Justin Fairfax, Democratic lieutenant governor of Virginia, who most expect to replace embattled Democratic governor Ralph Northam.

"Justin Fairfax was a staffer for John Kerry, who served in Vietnam, by the way," notes Limbaugh. "He was a staffer for Kerry in 2004. He won an election in 2017. Well, he’s been named. There is a Stanford University fellow who is hinting that Justin Fairfax has engaged in sexual assault."

"Well, now Justin Fairfax is outraged over this," said Limbaugh after reading from the report by the right-leaning site Big League Politics. "He has slammed the defamatory and false sexual assault allegation.... So today Fairfax released a tweet that said the person reported to be making this false allegation first approached the Washington Post. 'After being presented with facts consistent with the lieutenant governor’s denial of the allegation, the absence of any evidence corroborating the allegation and significant red flags and inconsistencies, the Post made the decision not to publish.'"

Limbaugh paused to point out a glaring difference in the media's initial approach to the Fairfax allegation versus its recent approach to uncorroborated allegations against Brett Kavanaugh. "Well, where was all of that during the Kavanaugh hearings? Aren’t we supposed to believe the women?" he asked.


"So Justin Fairfax says that the Post, after being presented with facts consistent with his denial, after being presented with the absence of any evidence corroborating this babe’s allegation and significant red flags and inconsistencies with the allegation, the Washington Post made the considered decision not to publish," he said. "Well, let me tell you, folks, none of that was any barrier to them running with the Kavanaugh allegations or a myriad allegations with no basis in fact against Donald Trump! This is quite telling. By the way, Justin Fairfax is African-American. Why does that matter? It doesn’t! I’m just telling you. I want you to have a complete picture of everything here."

He continued: "And so the Washington Post is trying to cover for the guy! 'Yeah, there aren’t any serious allegations.' But I thought the woman was always to be believed. The woman doesn’t lie. These are so disturbing, they have life-lasting effects. The viciousness of the assault, the lack of respect, the physical and psychological damage that these brutish, patriarchal men do. But the Washington Post said that there was insufficient evidence to run with the story. And so they haven’t. Justin Fairfax tweeted happily that they have denied it."

Limbaugh then moved on to the next sex scandal story: "Top Schumer Aide Was Pushed Out After Inappropriate Sexual Encounters With Staff – The sudden departure of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s communications director followed reports of sexual misconduct."

"The Huffing and Puffington Post 'has learned, through two sources with knowledge of the situation, that House was pushed out for allegedly having inappropriate sexual encounters with junior staffers,'" said Rush. "All of this was happening while they’re trying to destroy Brett Kavanaugh, and right in there helping out is the Drive-By Media!"


"If the Drive-By Media needs to report lies and defamatory things about Republicans, name it, we’ll do it," he stressed. "If they need to circle the wagons and protect and defend Democrats who are alleged to have committed sexual assault, they’ll do that."
