Limbaugh: Hillary's Appeal to Young Voters Solely Based on Gender

Hillary Clinton's popularity as a potential presidential candidate with young voters is based on "identity politics" since her "only and greatest achievement is ... being female," conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh said Thursday.

Reacting to a video posted Wednesday by PJ Media in which most youthful voters interviewed struggle to name a single accomplishment Clinton achieved as secretary of state – and in which one man asserted her handling of the Benghazi furor was her "high point" – Limbaugh told his radio audience young people's "enthusiastic" embrace of Clinton can only be attributed to the fact that she's a woman.

Story continues below video.



"This country needs to elect a female president because we're illegitimate and immoral and we've been sexist and we have been racist and we discriminate against minorities, and so electing the first African-American? Oh, it says great things about us," Limbaugh said.

"Oh, we're such good people! Oh, and electing the first female? Oh, we're even better!

"Look at our achievements. Look how we're advancing as a culture!"

"This is the kind of stuff that’s being taught" to young people, Limbaugh complained.

"So you boil it down, here, and the only and greatest achievement Hillary Clinton has is her gender, being female," he said, adding "this is not everybody, obviously. It's primarily young people."

But, he decried the response as "predictable."

"If you look at someone and you only see their race, that’s what makes you racist," he said.

"If you look at somebody and only see their gender, that makes you sexist. And that's who these liberals are."

Limbaugh railed, "you can't criticize" President Obama because "the first African-American president is beyond criticism. You can't criticize anything. You can't chronicle his failures. You can't do anything! Because you're being racist."

And if a woman were elected president, Limbaugh said, any criticism of her would be considered sexist, just like criticism of a gay president would be deemed homophobic and criticism of a Hispanic president would be seen as racist.

"Identity politics is such a major aspect of the liberal, leftist, Democratic agenda," he said.
