Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh said he was sure that everyone would be talking about Zimmerman trial witness Rachel Jeantel’s comments on CNN about her fear that George Zimmerman may have been a “rapist.” However, he was surprised to find out that no one was talking about it on Tuesday.
But they are now.
Here’s exactly what Jeantel said on CNN Monday night about whether Martin was “creeped out” by Zimmerman:
Yes. Definitely. After I say, “Might be a rapist.” For every boys or every man, every who’s not that kinda way, see a grown man following them, would they be creep out? So you gotta take as a parent. You tell a child, “You see a grown person follow it you, run away,” and all that.
“Let me spell it out for you,” Limbaugh said, after playing the relevant clip from Jeantel’s interview. “When Trayvon described Zimmerman to her, ‘creepy ass cracka,’ she began to fear that Zimmerman was gay. A rapist. She then told Trayvon to run, run, run. She just said so. ‘After I say, may be a rapist.’ That means she said to Trayvon: ‘This guy could be gay. He could be a rapist. He might want to rape you! You run, Trayvon. Run, run!”
Limbaugh interpreted Jeantel’s statements as meaning “Trayvon Martin descended on Zimmerman and started pummeling him was because he was offended.”
“He thought, because what she said to him, that Zimmerman was gay. Zimmerman got beat up because Trayvon thought he was gay,” he added. “That’s what she’s saying here. What else? What other interpretation is there?”
Because of the theoretical discrimination against a potentially gay person, Limbaugh said he thought the left was going to “have a real problem here.”
“So we have Trayvon Martin, who the media has made practically an angel. We now find out from no less than Rachel Jeantel, that he started beating up on Zimmerman because he thought, based on what Jeantel said, he might be gay,” Limbaugh concluded.
“So, Trayvon Martin — this angel, the recipient of all the love and support from the left-wing media, the Democrat Party, the left in general — actually is a gay basher. I thought, ‘My gosh, this is gonna captivate the news and the left is gonna have to make a decision here.’ Who do they actually end up supporting?”
