LIMBAUGH: One of the first things I went to today was the Drudge page, and I see a headline that Gloria Steinem is blaming me -- what does it say? Yeah, "Steinem Blames Limbaugh For Ruining The Word Feminism" -- I stared that, and I stared at that, I didn't click on it yet, I stared at it and finally I said "Yes!" Then I clicked on the link and it's to CBS This Morning. Apparently Gloria Steinem, former Playboy playmate -- you wonder why they stopped publishing the magazine, pictures? -- Gloria Steinem was on CBS this Morning promoting, yeah, she's got a new book out on feminism, and during the Q&A with Norah O'Donnell, Norah O'Donnell said, "you know there's still some real issues at stake, Ms. Steinem. I want to start with this, Meryl Streep, who stars in the movie Suffragette as Emily [sic] Pankhurst, she says, Meryl Streep says that she doesn't even consider herself a feminist. She says she considers herself a humanist. Why is it the feminist label, do you think, still has that negative stigma to it?"
LIMBAUGH: So once again your host, the harmless lovable little fuzzball Rush Limbaugh, now blamed for destroying a word, ruining a word. Ruining the definition of a word, feminism. Her definition is not even close to the way the feminazis use the entire feminist movement. It was based in leftist ideology, it was based on men are predators and men are evil and men are m--. It was designed to create a war between and against men and women. And all I did was expose it. That word, feminazi, they have never gotten over, because that word actually better explained what they were all about. It rang so true.
