Conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh berated Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., for her accusations of sexism in the feud between her and her Republican counterpart in a neighboring Florida district, Rep. Allen West.
“Debbie Blabbermouth Schultz is deranged, folks,” Limbaugh said. “She is typical of today’s American left. They are deranged. We face a delusional enemy.”
Limbaugh said Wasserman Schultz defied House floor decorum during a legislative debate when she called out West for his proposed Medicare cuts. West responded with a fiery email to the lawmaker that called her “vile, unprofessional and despicable,” told her to “shut the heck up,” and said she was “not a lady.” The email has been widely circulated, and both sides are using the volleys to raise money.

“So what did [Wasserman Schultz] do? She ran like a little crybaby to all these other left wing women of the Democrat party to help her out, and they start returning fire that West is the racist and West is the sexist and so forth,” Limbaugh said.
Limbaugh discounted the accusations of Wasserman Schultz and her supporters that West’s comments were sexist, and even went so far as to define feminism as a singular liberal cause that exists solely to defend legal abortion.
“I don’t think they’re to be taken seriously,” he said. “They are liberals. Their concern for womenhood is really a concern for liberalism. We all know that. Feminism is not really about women’s rights. It’s about the sacrament to the religion of liberalism, which is abortion.”
