Limbaugh warned, with "new female police chiefs ... we can watch out for some naked pyramids"; called military officers "orificers"May 28, 2004 5:33 PM EDT ››› KATIE BARGE & ANDREW SEIFTER
Reacting to a May 27 Associated Press report that four women have been recently appointed as chiefs of police in four major U.S. cities, radio host Rush Limbaugh complained that the National Center for Women & Policing -- the "feminazis" -- were still unhappy because women make up only 13 percent of police officers and warned: "If we've got four new female police chiefs out there, then I guess we can watch out for some naked pyramids among prisoners in these new jailhouses that these women ran, because we had a woman running the prison in Abu [Algore pronunciation] Grab." (Brackets and contents in original.) The day before, on his May 26 program, reading from a May 26 Washington Times article, Limbaugh referred to military officers as "orificers."
The transcript (brackets and contents in original) of the segment from the May 27 broadcast of The Rush Limbaugh Show, which is posted on Limbaugh's website under the headline "Feminazis Whine over Cop Babe Success!":
LIMBAUGH: A little interesting story, folks, this out of Boston. [Reading from AP story] "The new police chiefs in four of the nation's largest cities -- Boston, San Francisco, Milwaukee and Detroit -- share some credentials.
"All boast more than two decades of [cop] experience. All have worked their way up the ranks. And all are women." [Gasping.] Yes, my friends.
"Some say it's just coincidence that four women within six months have been named to the top [cop] position in four major cities, a natural evolution two decades after consent decrees and affirmative action cases forced departments to hire more women...
"Women still make up an average of only 13 percent of police officers..." They're never happy. And I don't mean women. I'm talking about the activists. Don't lose your cookies out there. This is according to the National Center for Women and Policing, which is a division of the Feminist Majority Foundation of American, which is the feminazis.
So here we've got progress. This is exactly what I'm talking about. Here we've got four new police chiefs are women, again, San Francisco, Boston, Milwaukee, Detroit, and the feminazis find the bad news. "Well, there's still only 13% of women on the forces of the general police population, so..."
This is exactly what I'm talking about. So what's the reaction to this? Well, here's my reaction, in the typical Rush fashion: If we've got four new female police chiefs out there, then I guess we can watch out for some naked pyramids among prisoners in these new jailhouses that these women ran, because we had a woman running the prison in Abu [Algore pronunciation] Grab. That's how you do it.
From the May 26 broadcast of The Rush Limbaugh Show:
[Reading from a May 26 Washington Times article], "Whatever the reason, one theme is clear: Abu Grab was a disaster waiting to happen. Rules on uniforms were not enforced, soldiers wrote poems and other sayings on their helmets." Oh, really? Are you telling me that these brutes, these brutes who did all these horrible, insulting things to these people, wrote poetry? Come on, how does that happen? Poets are gentle little flowers wilting in the breeze. Well, it might have been limericks, but anyway, so they "wrote poems and other sayings on their helmets, saluting of orificers [sic (article reads, "officers")] was not enforced. Records on inmates and escapes were spotty. And regulations were not posted; and no MP had been trained adequately in detainee operations." [sigh]
You know, just fix this and move on. What are we beating ourselves over the head with this for? This is what's not productive, acting like this is regular and commonplace, and now we've got to stop everything to take care of this all for our psyche, and actually all for the advancement of John Kerry is just a bit much. It's -- it's putting people who wear the uniform at greater risk over there, which we've been through countless times and nobody hears, when I say it.
