Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh says Democrats are willing to “bend over” for gays and African-Americans out of desperation for money.

In response to a caller's question on the Monday, June 23rd edition of Premiere Radio Networks' The Rush Limbaugh Show, Limbaugh attempted to answer why Republicans are willing to ignore Christians and conservatives. “I want to know how the Republicans don't need Christians and conservatives, and they think we're 30 percent. Twelve percent black people in the population. Ten percent – they claim – homosexuals in the population. Rush, honey, when did 30 percent get to be a small number?” the caller asked.

Limbaugh responded: “I don't – I think it's actually larger than 30 percent. But let me see if I can get your question right. You want to know why the Republicans are willing to say, “Screw you,” to 30 percent or more of the voters and yet Democrats will bend over, grab the ankles, and say, 'Have your way with me,' for 10 percent and 2 percent of the population?”

Limbaugh has a long track record of demeaning minorities. For a while, HIV/AIDS stories would open with Dionne Warwick's song “I Know I'll Never Love This Way Again.”

After a break, Limbaugh expanded on his thought by saying that the Republican party was embarrassed by Southern pro-lifers.

Yet, he said, lowering population figures for blacks and gays, “the black population totals 10 percent, don't know what the voting population is. The gay population – what is it? One percent, 2 percent --- that's --- 12 percent, and we're not even factoring out the adult population, the voting population there.”

“One of the multiple answers to this – but one of the first answers is money. The far-left – and don't – I'll tell you something, the politically active gay community on the left is worth a lot of money. These people send the Democrats more money than you can possibly imagine.”

Limbaugh admitted that pro-lifers donate a lot of money to the Republican party, adding, “But it embarrasses them. It still embarrasses a lot of country club Rockefeller types.”

“The Democrats – what are they embarrassed about? They're not embarrassed about anything. The Democrats have never set any standards for themselves. As far as they're concerned, everybody's a victim, even on their side. So, I mean, yeah, these victims are just fighting to be heard. Fighting for their rights, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. The conservative rights – conservative right is viewed as trying to deny people rights, blah, blah, blah, you see.”

“Democrats are scared to death if these people take their money and go away or go to a third party or what have you. And so they will cater to them left and right.”
