Prepare to have your brain hurt, because conservadouche Rush Limbaugh has opened his ridiculous mouth again. And it's not pretty. Or smart. Or enriching to society. It's just plain idiotic and completely nonsensical. In what seems to be a completely lame attempt to stay current and relevant, he recently commented on Beyonce's new single, "Bow Down/I Been On." And -- get this -- he seems to be under the impression that it's an anti-feminist anthem! BHAHAHAHA.
No, really. Citing a story in The Telegraph, Limbaugh claimed that, rather than standing up for women's independence, Beyonce is encouraging women to be subservient to their spouses. "Bow Down," according to Rush, is telling women to "put up with it." And "she married the rich guy. She now understands it's worth it to bow down to men." Are. You. Kidding. Me. Cuz that's hilaaarious!
I have to wonder: Was the guy was having a senior moment?
Because, um, reality check: If Rush even took two seconds to read the lyrics, he would know the song is not about and does not hint at any of that delusional nonsense. One of the lines goes, "I took some time to live my life/but don’t think I’m just his little wife. ... This is my sh*t, bow down, b****es." Got that, Rush? Don't think. She's NOT "just his little wife." She's not telling anyone to "bow down" to their men. She's telling us to bow down to her. Cuz despite naming her recent tour The Mrs. Carter World Tour, she's freakin' QUEEN BEY, and she makes even more money than her mega-successful husband, Jay-Z.
It's like the guy could twist and pollute anything to try to spin it as anti-feminist or in line with his completely extreme, delusional beliefs. I mean, we're talking about the man who called Sandra Fluke a slut for testifying on behalf of her friend who needed birth control for medical reasons (read: nothing to do with sex). And the same man who thought The Dark Knight Rises (yes, as in the Batman movie) is a liberal conspiracy. So, it should sort of go without saying that he's off his rocker. And at this point, given his laughable spin on Beyonce's song, geeze, I feel like it may even be safe to say the he's totally lost it.
What do you think about Rush's take on Beyonce's song?
