Report: VA Wait Times Didn't Cause Deaths

RUSH:  Well, there he is.  Obama's in North Carolina addressing the nation's veterans.  They don't look too crazy about it.  By the way, have you heard the latest?  All those delays meant nothing.  Those delays at the VA hospitals had nothing to do with people dying.  Yeah, yeah, they had nothing to do with people getting sicker.  The delays had nothing to do with it, absolutely not, and don't think otherwise.  

Have You Heard About the Ferguson Buy-In?

RUSH: You heard about the "buycott"?  The buycott that happened in Ferguson and St. Louis yesterday?  It's actually been going on for a while.  From the Heritage Foundation: "St. Louis County residents who wanted their voices to be heard decided to show up in Ferguson, Mo. Their goal: To give some much-needed business to shops damaged by vandals and looters."  Those are the looters from Napa, 'cause there hasn't been any looting in Napa, see, after the earthquake.  So there wasn't any looting in Napa.  It has to be that they're not there; they're all in Ferguson. 

"More than 40 members of the St. Louis Tea Party Coalition headed to the embattled town Thursday evening --" we're just learning about this "-- to shop at the small businesses and support the local economy. Led by Bill Hennessy, one of the group’s founders, they shopped at a variety of stores in Ferguson and made plans to 'buycott' the St. Louis suburb again next weekend.  'People have in their minds that Ferguson is a very dangerous place, and it’s not. We’re going to continue having occasional "buycotts" long after this is over to keep reminding people that they can go back there. The easiest way to have a long-term problem in Ferguson is for everyone to abandon the area.'"

No, this is not an AP story.  Sorry.  No, no, no.  No, no.  It's not UPI.  Nope.  Nope.  Nope.  It's not CNN.  No, no, no, no, not New York Times.  No, no, no, no, no, not Washington Post.  Ah, ah, not USA Today.  Nope, CNN hasn't covered it.  ABC, CBS, NBC, no. 

This is a Heritage Foundation story.  The Drive-Bys haven't covered this, but the Tea Party is leading a buycott in Ferguson, and they've been doing this since Thursday. They're going back next weekend.  You won't find it in the Drive-By Media.

No Media Outcry Over Salt Lake City Shooting

RUSH: Now, here's this story.  We had a caller, the guy's name I think was -- from Utah last week -- James?  I'm not sure.  But he told us that there was a Ferguson-like shooting in, what was it, Park City?  No.  I guess Salt Lake City.  I forget where.  He was describing it for us and he said that the media, it was the exact opposite of Ferguson.  Had an innocent unarmed white victim shot by a cop that the media referred to as "other than white."  So I've been waiting for details of that story to appear, and they finally have, albeit in the Washington Times. 

The headline is:  "Ferguson-Like Attack in Utah Escapes Media Notice; Race Bias Seen -- On the surface, the cases appear nearly identical: Michael Brown and Dillon Taylor, two young, unarmed men with sketchy criminal pasts shot to death by police officers two days apart. But while the world knows of the highly publicized situation involving 18-year-old Mr. Brown, whose Aug. 9 death in Ferguson, Missouri touched off violence, protests and an angry national debate, most people outside Utah have never heard of 20-year-old Mr. Taylor.

"Critics say there’s a reason for the discrepancy in media coverage: race. Mr. Brown was black and the officer who shot him was white. Mr. Taylor wasn’t black -- he’s been described as white and Hispanic -- and the officer who shot him Aug. 11 outside a 7-Eleven in South Salt Lake wasn’t white." Even the Washington Times refers to the cop as something other than white. 

"The perceived double standard is fueling resentment and talk of double standards on conservative talk radio and social media, where the website Twitchy has compiled a list of Twitter comments asking why Mr. Brown’s death has been front-page news for weeks while Mr. Taylor’s was a footnote at best."  Well, this is not hard to explain.  I mean, it's the media soap opera. It's the narrative. It's the template.  This is easy to explain.  That's why I spent so much time trying to make people understand this whole thing in Ferguson is based on a myth.  The myth is that white cops are shooting innocent black kids all the time.  That's the myth, and this thing in Ferguson, last straw, okay, we've finally had it, we're not putting up with it anymore, this is the end. 

And it doesn't happen all the time.  But if the same situation happens in reverse, not news.  The media isn't about news, folks.  The media's about driving an agenda.  There's no news.  And so an other-than-white officer shooting a white or "white Hispanic" kid doesn't advance the agenda.  In fact, it hurts it.  In fact, to report it would undercut the myth that they're trying to build in St. Louis.  I don't know why people continue to be surprised at this.  Angry is another thing, but surprised by it I don't get.  This is easily predictable, understandable. 

I dare say that there are probably a greater number of crimes committed by black perpetrators on white victims than the other way around.  That is never gonna be substantiated or reported, and certainly not while they're trying to build a myth in St. Louis.  It just isn't going to happen and it's proof positive that the media is not about news at all.  

Feminazis Against Nail Polish That Detects Date Rape Drug 

RUSH: I have told you often that I understand liberals better than they do.  But there's a subset of liberals that, at times, even I am surprised by.  That would be the feminazis.  A group of college students have invented a nail polish that changes color if it comes into contact with date rape drugs.  Now, if you are a young college co-ed or if you are a mother or father of a young college co-ed, I want you to listen to this story and tell me if this product interests you. 

It's a special nail polish that you... Well, if you order an adult beverage, right?  More importantly, if somebody gives you an adult beverage, you surreptitiously -- you very secretly -- stick a finger in your adult beverage so that you expose your fingernail polish to it, and if the polish reacts in a certain way, then you know the date rape drug or a date rape drug has been put into your adult beverage. 

The feminazis are fit to be tied over this! 

The feminazis are angry about this!

Again, a group of college students have invented a nail polish that changes color if it comes into contact with date rape drugs.  Many see it as a useful invention because it might help women protect themselves. But some say that anything that might help women protect themselves is actually offensive to women because it "promotes rape culture," and that's what the feminazis are saying! 

There's an article in Think Progress, and it says this: "Women are already expected to work hard to prevent themselves from becoming the victims of sexual assault. ... Now, remembering to put on anti-rape nail polish and discreetly slip a finger into each [adult beverage] might be added to that ever-growing checklist" of things women have to do to prevent being raped." 

The feminazis say that this "actually reinforces a pervasive rape culture in our society," and even some feminazis were outright angry at the invention.  One of them is "Rebecca Nagle, one of the co-directors of an activist group called FORCE: Upsetting Rape Culture," and she said, "I don't want to f[reak]ing test my drink when I'm at the bar. That's not the world I want to live in."

The nail polish "is an invention of Undercover Colors, which calls itself the 'First Fashion Company Empowering Women to Prevent Sexual Assault.'"  Now, I have to admit here, folks, the feminazis response to this product is irrational, and it's deceitful.  It's a product! Some women are gonna buy it; some women aren't.  Big deal.  How in the world does this "promote rape culture"? 

That's the convoluted thinking.  Look, I can probably explain it, but it doesn't mean that I agree with or understand it.  Everything... Here's the way the feminazis look at this: "Every step a woman must take to protect herself from unwanted sexual assault is just evidence that there's nothing that can be done to stop it.  Therefore, if nothing is going to be done to stop it..."

In other words, "If we're not gonna come up with ways to target the rapist beforehand, then all we're doing is promoting the rape culture by putting the burden on the woman."  There was a story it seems like last week, but it had to be longer ago than that, where... Maybe it was Stephen A. Smith, and maybe it was a woman who said, "Well, you know, women have to realize that that certain ways they dress can be provocative and inviting and all." 

Remember, the feminazis went batty over that.  The sad thing is... It's not sad. The reality is that boys chase girls.  I mean, there's nothing the feminazis are ever going to be able to do about that.  They call it sexual objectification, demeaning, not taking women seriously, but it's just the way of the world.  Boys chase girls.  They always have.  There's a great line in a song:  "A boy chases a girl until she catches him."  I've always loved that line. 

And, yeah, some of the guys chasing the girls are not chivalrous and they're not moral and they're not nice.  In fact, there are guys that commit sex crimes.  I don't know what... That's always been the case, too.  The fact that some women have come up with a nail polish product that can identify an adult beverage that's laced with the date rape drug offends the feminazis by claiming that it promotes a rape culture? 

Who put these nut jobs in charge of new products, anyway? 

How come when a new product comes out, somebody has to go to the feminazis to find out what they think about it?  What the hell does anybody care about what the feminazis think?  If you don't like it, don't buy it!  It's that simple.  If you think that a product -- a nail polish that changes color when it comes in contact with a adult beverage spiked with a date rape drug -- promotes the rape culture, fine. Don't buy the product!

But stop preaching nonsense to people.  The thing is, our government's populated with these attitudes. Our universities, governments, schools, are populated with people that that think this way, that have this kind of mind-set.  I mean, this feminazi reaction, really, to me, is the left exposed, raw, and unfiltered.  Because in the end they insist on the right to tell everybody to shut up and sit down. 

This is why, by the way, I created the word "feminazi."

I mean, how else would you describe these people? 

So if you're a mother and your daughter has just gone away to school -- I don't know, high school, whatever -- and you worry about this, and if your daughter could get a nail polish that could warn her that an adult beverage, or any other drink that she's been offered has been spiked with a date rape drug, are you gonna get mad about it, tell her not to use it and think this is only helping the rapists?  I literally don't get it.  I know that feminazis and logic are strangers anyway, but this may take the cake.
