Rush Limbaugh suggested that Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker announce that he quit college to avoid being accused of rape.
The likely 2016 Republican presidential candidate dropped out of Marquette University during the spring of his senior year with little explanation and never completed his degree.
Limbaugh urged Walker offer an explanation that was sure to outrage liberal academics, reported Media Matters.
“Just ram it right down their throats,” Limbaugh said. “They’re trying to create this rape culture on the campus – well, (he should say,) ‘I quit because I don’t want to be accused of rape down the road.’”
Walker has claimed for years that he left just short of graduation, after losing a bid for student body president, to pursue a job opportunity.
Limbaugh, who claims he dropped out of second year at the University of Southeast Missouri to avoid taking a ballroom dancing class taught by a “lesbian drill sergeant,” said Walker should try to make a sarcastic point about feminism and rape.
“It seems like any man that goes to college could randomly be accused of committing rape,” Limbaugh said.
He suggested reporters don’t care whether rape claims are true or not before publishing articles.
“’Well, we may not have gotten it right, but we know it happens,’” Limbaugh imagined reporters saying. “So (Walker should say,) ‘I wanted to remove myself from this culture that might have turned me into this very mean guy,’ and just see what they say. Cram what they believe right down their throats.”
