Rush Limbaugh: ‘You don’t put the NFL in pink for a month’
Rush Limbaugh has raised eyebrows with comments he made about the NFL’s recognition of Breast Cancer Month during a recent taping of his radio show.
In a five-minute-long clip, the conservative pundit argued that there has been a sustained attack on masculinity in America.
“The chickification of everything is taking place…feelings are triumphing over common sense,” he said on his show.
To support his argument, Limbaugh mocked the NFL’s annual decision to feature players, coaches and referees wearing pink game apparel to help raise awareness for breast cancer throughout October.
The campaign, called “A Crucial Catch,” also hopes to raise money for the American Cancer Society’s Community Health Advocates National Grants for Empowerment (CHANGE) program.
An unapologetic Limbaugh stated: “You don’t put the NFL in pink for a month!”
“I don’t think that there’s any question that there’s an attack on masculinity and it’s not new. It’s the modern feminism era that’s what it is, it’s the critique against masculinity,” he added.
