RUSH: Dadelut dadelut dadelut dadelut dadelut dadelut dadelut. From the Grooveyard of Forgotten Favorites, ladies and gentlemen, let me go back to one of our all-time favorite update themes, You Don’t Own Me (or know me), portrayed vocal here by Klaus Nomi. It’s a gay update theme.

RUSH: Klaus Nomi, no longer with us, just FYI.

(continued playing of song)

RUSH: The Rush Limbaugh program. The EIB Network and a gay community update.

RUSH: Okay, here’s the news, folks, in the UK Daily Mail. “A medical test being developed by Kuwait will be used to ‘detect’ homosexuals and prevent them from entering the country — or any of the Gulf Cooperation Countries (GCC), according to a Kuwaiti government official. GCC member countries — Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates — already deem homosexual acts unlawful.”

The story does not say what test will be used to detect homosexuals. It just says that they’re gonna introduce medical testing to detect gay people and keep ’em out of their countries.

(continued playing of song)

RUSH: Can you imagine that?

(continued playing of song)

RUSH: They don’t say what the test is.

(continued playing of song)

RUSH: You might wonder — well, never mind.

(continued playing of song)

RUSH: Klaus Nomi, everybody, the late great Klaus Nomi. What’s his real name? No relation to Klaus Kinski, who was the father of Nastassja Kinski. No relationship to Natasha Richardson. Anyway, it’s a true story here. Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates, that would be Dubai and the ports, United Arab Emirates, outlaw homosexuality. “This controversial stance is being toughened, according to Yousouf Mindkar, the director of public health at the Kuwaiti health ministry.” Gays will be barred. I’m not kidding. It says a medical test will be developed that’ll be used to detect homosexuals, keep ’em out of the country, but they don’t say what the test is gonna be.

What you need to know here is the story lists countries where homosexuality is punishable by death: Iran, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Yemen. I mean, the list goes on and on and on. Iran has no gay people. You remember when the former Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, was invited to speak to the students at Columbia, and this honestly happened. A student during the Q&A asked him about gay people, and he said, “We don’t have any of that in Iran.” And the audience laughed. And when the audience began laughing, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said, “Oh, well, do you know someone who is? Could you tell me where they live?” And the audience kinda stopped laughing. They got a little quiet in there at Columbia.

So what could the test possibly be? What kind of detection? I mean, you figure this is at airports. (interruption) No, not genome genetic testing. What are you talking about? This is getting off the airplane, walking through customs and so forth, they gotta have some kind of test. I mean, that’s where they gotta stop ’em. That’s where they have to stop anybody from entering the country. That’s where they’d have to have the test. Or maybe the test is at the origin of departure. They want to catch you before you even get on the plane, on the way there.
