I'm being serious. I really need someone to explain to me why are people all of a sudden offended by something Rush Limbaugh has said. The man has made some of the most vile, racists comments and yet we never saw this type of backlash. So why now?

Don't get me wrong. I'm not defending what he said. His comments calling Georgetown law student, Sandra Fluke, a 'slut' and a 'prostitute' are absolutely reprehensible and deserves admonishment, but why now?

Limbaugh has been one of the biggest race arsonist out there, but yet I've never seen politicians on both sides calling for him to apologize. Where were all these people when those kids got into a fight on the bus and Limbaugh said that's what America would be like under Obama, "White kids get beat up with the black kids cheering"?

There wasn't a massive boycott of his advertisers then.

Or how about the time when he told a black female caller to his show to 'take the bone out her nose and call him back.' Nope. No boycott then either.

I'm just saying Limbaugh has given the public plenty of stuff to boycott him over, but yet this is the incident they chose to focus on. Why is that?

I have my thoughts, but I would love to hear yours.
