O'Reilly Calls the Folks "Bible-Thumpers"
RUSH: Snerdley just asked me, folks, about the sound bite we had of Bill O'Reilly, who came out for gay marriage, when he previously was against it. (We found some evidence of that.) But more than that, he said the people that oppose it are just a bunch of "Bible thumpers." Snerdley's asking me about that -- in a professional sense, of course. I have to admit that, I'm still shaking my head over that, over the host of "The Factor" calling the people who oppose same-sex marriage "Bible thumpers."
He's writing a book called Killing Jesus, and I guarantee you he's aiming that book at "Bible thumpers," as he calls them. I would think. I would think if you're going to write a book called Killing Jesus that you hope "Bible thumpers" buy it, but not if you call 'em that. I could be wrong. He coulda called 'em bitter clingers. (interruption) Well, yeah. Everybody that opposes it is a "Bible thumper." If it's 40% that oppose it or 50, whatever it is, he calls them Bible thumpers. I don't know. That's what he said.
I have to admit, it was curious, but I'm just answering the question.
School Bans Dodgeball
RUSH: Dodgeball has been banned in New Hampshire. Windham schools, due to concerns about violence and bullying, and so the wussification of America continues. "Dodgeball has been banned in Windham schools, due to concerns about violence and bullying. The School Board voted, 4-1, last week to remove dodgeball and nine other 'human target' activities from the district's curriculum. The vote was taken after a committee of physical education teachers studied the issue, then recommended eliminating the games.
"'We spend a lot of time making sure our kids are violence free,' Windham superintendent Dr. Henry LaBranche said. 'Here we have games where we use children as targets. That seems to be counter to what we are trying to accomplish with our anti-bullying campaign.'" So does that mean tag is gone? Because somebody's a target there. "A middle school parent complained his child was bullied during a game of dodgeball. That prompted LaBranche to form the teachers’ committee to student 'human target' games.
"Those games included prison ball, slaughter, bombardment and others," and you know what? If you read all the way down the end of the story, you'll found out they were using foam dodge balls. They had already switched from real dodgeballs to foam dodge balls, and they still canceled it. (interruption) Idiotic? No, they're not idiotic. They're courageous. These people think of themselves as courageous, Snerdley. They're brave. They're taking a stand here to protect the children from bullying and from becoming targets.
Pentagon Scales Back Sequester Furloughs
RUSH: Just as we predicted, the furloughs at the Pentagon are being dialed back.
"The Pentagon will sharply cut the number of unpaid furlough days civilians will be forced to take over the next several months from 22 to 14, defense officials said Wednesday, reducing the impact of automatic budget cuts on as many as 700,000 workers." We told you the minute Panetta announced this, that this was not gonna happen, and even if it did, and that they would be receiving full back pay, which they will. But the furloughs have been reduced dramatically. They were never, ever going to be as drastic as was predicted.
NYU Sex Course: 69 Ways to Use Saran Wrap?
RUSH: From a website called Campus Reform... We've done our due diligence. This bunch pretty much is on the ball. It was Campus Reform that told us about University of Wisconsin and Minnesota where they were teaching that it was bad to be white. "New York University (NYU) celebrated March as 'Women's HERstory Month,'" not history, HERStory, "with a presentation by a burlesque dancer named Chicava HoneyChild and a workshop entitled '69 Ways to Use Saran Wrap.'"
New York University HERstory month, burlesque dancer, "69 Ways to Use Saran Wrap." They were not teaching about how to take leftovers home. "The events, which took place at NYU, were sponsored by the school’s LGBTQ Student Center and Camp Grrl (sic), a club for 'queer' women," that's the word in the story, "and were paid for with school funds which come from tuition and student fees.
"Monday’s event, '69 Ways to Use Saran Wrap,' promised to answer questions such as 'What entails more risk: "scissoring" or '69?"' and “Are dental dams better for anal or vaginal sex?,' according to the college’s official event calendar." Saran Wrap, Snerdley. They taught "69 Ways to Use Saran Wrap." I would venture to say that most of you can't even name one, and here the females at New York University are being taught 69 different ways, in a sexual workshop to use Saran Wrap by Chicava HoneyChild, a well-known burlesque dancer.
