Rush Limbaugh: "The governor of Arizona is being bullied by the homosexual lobby"

Jan Brewer is also being "bullied" by the "nationwide drive-by media," Limbaugh says

Poor Jan Brewer is being bullied, says Rush Limbaugh.

Limbaugh, we know for a fact, takes bullying very seriously. When allegations surfaced that Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito was violently harassing his teammate Jonathan Martin, Limbaugh supported Martin by inferring that he was a wuss and the symptom of a cultural "assault" on masculinity. Further establishing his anti-bullying bona fides, Limbaugh believes 1965 was "a great year" because "bullying was legal."

Obviously this man has a lot of sense when it comes to bullying.

In this case, Limbaugh is very troubled that business leaders, regular voters, LGBTQ rights groups and remorseful Republicans are urging Brewer to veto Arizona's anti-LGBTQ discrimination bill because such political pressure is tantamount to bullying, which Limbaugh, as established above, will not stand for.

"She’s being bullied by the homosexual lobby in Arizona and elsewhere," he said. "She’s being bullied by the nationwide drive-by media, she’s being bullied by certain elements of corporate America in order to advance the gay agenda."
