Now Limbaugh is attempting to say that there is a double standard in his treatment and the way rappers are treated for misogynist language and the way he was treated. He wrote on his website:
“You talk about a double standard, One of the greatest illustrations of it is that rappers can practically say anything they want about women, and it’s called art.”
What Limbaugh doesn’t mention is that rappers are held to a standard of misogyny. Rapper Too Short and XXL Magazine’s Vanessa Satten faced a similar campaign of petitions and boycotts and a call to have the editor fired which resulted in an apology from Too Short and Vanessa Satten.
Misogyny is not right when it comes from hip-hop and it not right when it comes from right wing radio hosts. What is particularly disturbing about Limbaugh’s misogyny is that he is known as the voice of the Republican party. Limbaugh is the highest rated talk show host in the country and boasts of 20 million day times listeners, known as ditto-heads, who follow Limbaugh without question.
