Limbaugh: What Is It With These ‘Young, White, Over-Educated’ Women?
2:30 pm, March 6th | by Laura Donovan
In the immediate aftermath of his week-long nationwide roast for labeling Georgetown University student Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute,” Limbaugh had the audacity to take another swipe at women during his Tuesday show in which he complained of ”all [the] young, white, [over-educated] women” in America.
First speaking about Walmart’s health food options for low-income families, Limbaugh said recipients of such inexpensive services feel entitled to more and more.
“It’s not enough that Wal-Mart offers unprocessed food to low-income families…Now it has to be the best, it has to be the best, it has to be the most expensive, and it has to be practically given away otherwise, what? Wal-Mart is racist. That’s how this works. This is how pressure is brought to bear on people in the private sector. Accuse them of racism, discrimination…force them to cave to the all-powerful demands of the federal government because to do otherwise is to incur their wrath and nobody wants that.”
Referencing “The American Way of Eating” author Tracie McMillan, Limbaugh said, “What is it with all of these young, single, white women? Over-educated, doesn’t mean intelligent. Example, Tracie McMillan, the author of this book, seems to be just out of college and already she has been showered with awards.”
Limbaugh went on to insinuate that McMillan didn’t deserve the 2006 James Aronson Award for Social Justice Journalism:
“Social Justice Journalism? This woman wrote the book on food inequality. Food justice.”
Remember when we said Limbaugh’s apology to Fluke hardly meant he was done fighting with women? We were correct, but we didn’t think we’d be proven right so soon after the contraception hoopla.
