Remarking on "a blonde female FBI agent" escorting suspected gunman Brian Nichols to a police vehicle, nationally syndicated radio host Rush Limbaugh said that "[s]omebody here is trying to ram [political correctness] down our throats."
From the March 14 broadcast of The Rush Limbaugh Show:
LIMBAUGH: So, I'm like everybody else, I was following the Brian Nichols story all day Friday and Saturday. Well, up to Saturday morning, when it was time to go out and play golf. But nevertheless, I saw the guy surrender, get captured. And, I was watching the pictures of him being escorted to the police SUV by a blonde FBI police officer or agent, female. This is after Brian Nichols had overpowered this 5-foot deputy in the jail on Friday. And, of course, there was talk all Friday afternoon and night about the political correctness here.
Of course, a 5-foot woman could not play in the NFL; a 5-foot woman could not play in the NBA, but somehow she can be a police officer, a deputy, or a cop, and a lot of people think that this is a little crazy.
And, of course, I know there's a lot of sensitivity to this in police departments around the country because political correctness has reared its head in a number of places. So, when I saw Brian Nichols turn himself in and be escorted to the SUV by a blonde female FBI agent, I said, "Somebody here is trying to ram PC down our throats," because they're already sensitive to what had happened in the jail, and they're saying it had nothing to do with it, blah, blah, blah. And we're not afraid of having women in close contact with this prisoner, who had already committed all these murders and heinous acts.
