Limbaugh On Rolling Stone Retracting Rape Story And Lena Dunham Rape Claim: ‘The Left Is Cracking Up’

RUSH: “On Nov. 19, the magazine ran a story of ‘Jackie,’ an unidentified UVA. student who says she was gang-raped at a party at the house of Phi Kappa Psi in the fall of 2012. Her shocking story, with vivid details from the night of the incident, and its charges that sexual assaults at UVA often go unreported deeply embarrassed the university and launched an investigation by school officials and local police. All Greek life activities were also suspended in the wake of the story.

“Will Dana, the magazine’s managing editor, wrote on its website, ‘In the face of new information, there now appear to be discrepancies in Jackie’s account –” this is the unidentified UVA student “– and we have come to the conclusion that our trust in her was misplaced.  We were trying to be sensitive to the unfair shame and humiliation many women feel after a sexual assault and now regret the decision to not contact the alleged assaulters to get their account.”

You know what they’re apologizing for?  ‘Cause you got this nameless, faceless, unidentified woman accusing the fraternity of gang rape, Rolling Stone ran with it. The author of the story was Sabrina Rubin Erdely, just ran with the story.  They never once got hold of the frat.  They’re admitting here that they regret their decision to not contact the alleged assaulters to get their account.

“We are taking this seriously at Rolling Stone, and we apologize to anyone who was affected by the story.”  Oh, big of you.  Big of you.  Rolling Stone magazine blows up.

RUSH: Now, the Lena Dunham thing. I didn’t read her book.  I, frankly, don’t care.  I don’t think somebody 22, biography — well, that’s another thing.  Anyway, she claims she was raped by a conservative Republican on campus at Oberlin College somewhere in Ohio, and Breitbart has endeavored to conduct an exhaustive investigation.  They can’t find the guy. They can’t find anybody that meets the description.  They can’t find anybody who could possibly have done this.

The left is cracking up right in front of our eyes, openly, every day.  The left is becoming devoted to the opposite of the truth.  It’s almost as though there’s a ongoing effort here to be wrong.  And if it causes a problem, deal with it later.  But the agenda is so crucial that we will even lie to advance it.  Dan Rather and this National Guard thing and George W. Bush. (imitating Rather) “Well, they may not have any evidence, but I know it happened.  I have sources.  I talk to my sources and sources confirm.  I don’t have any evidence, no, but I’m very clear it happened, and if it didn’t happen, I want to break that story.” Remember Dan Rather: I want to break the story it didn’t happen.
