Rush Limbaugh: ‘Elephant in the room’ is that accused child abuser is gay

LOS ANGELES — Jerry Sandusky — the former Penn State assistant coach charged with 40 counts of child sexual abuse — is “a gay guy” but the “gay lobby” won’t let you say that, according to conservative political commentator Rush Limbaugh.

Limbaugh’s statements came during his radio broadcast on Friday when a caller asked Limbaugh about the “elephant in the room” that he had mentioned during a broadcast last week.

The caller on Friday said that “we’re always told that homosexuals are not pedophiles, but in this case, he sure was. And the same thing with Michael Jackson.”

Limbaugh replied, “Nah, not pedophiles, but I do think it’s the elephant in the room that is never — it’s not called a homosexual problem or scandal or — see there — and the reason, there’s a very powerful political gay movement, and it’s oriented towards supporting the Democrat Party.”

Limbaugh also said he didn’t “want to be misunderstood.”

Sandusky does not represent all of homosexuality, just like the priests in the Catholic Church don’t represent all of homosexuality, just like the aberrant criminals in heterosexual society don’t represent all heterosexuals.

But because the gay lobby is very powerful, people don’t go there. People don’t address it, they don’t talk about it, and as such, an element of the problem never gets dealt with.”

Limbaugh asserted that “Sandusky has to be — he’s a gay guy. Nobody’s mentioning that aspect, because it’s just too dangerous.”

According to medical experts, backed by the American Psychological Association, the National Association of Social Workers, the American Academy of Child Psychiatrists and the Child Welfare League of America, there is no link between homosexuality and pedophilia.

In fact, most experts indicate that in the majority of cases, pedophiles claim a heterosexual orientation.
