Rush Limbaugh Thinks Beyonce Has Finally Come Around To Female Submission

Rush Limbaugh made the bizarre declaration that Beyonce "now understands" that "it's worth it to bow down," based on her new single Bow Down / I Been On

Guys, I think Rush Limbaugh has outdone himself. I know that's a high bar to clear, and really, I have no idea, because I don't listen to the guy, but this is pretty amazing: Limbaugh declared to all his listeners that Beyonce has a new message in her single "Bow Down / I Been On": be submissive to your man. Two amazing things about this: one, no, that's wrong, and two, Limbaugh agrees with Beyonce's "message."

"She's done a 180. Beyonce, now having been married, having been impregnated [nice phrasing, Rush] and given birth to Blue Ivy...'Bow Down Bitches' is the new tune. A total 180. Beyonce's now saying, go ahead and put up with it. And you know why? I'll tell you why. Cause she got married.

She's now telling these bia-itches to bow down. Because, what? She got married. She married the rich guy. She now understands. She understands it's worth it to bow down...You find the right guy, you put up with it, you bow down."

Here's the problem with Limbaugh's interpretation (other than that he probably didn't listen to the song): Beyonce does not mention husbands, partners or boyfriends at any point in the song. There's a passing reference to her being married, but this is a typical "I am awesome" song. The message of this song is "Beyonce is supreme." It has nothing to do with family values, and it's definitely not about how women should submit to men.

Also, Rush Limbaugh, women should not submit to men. Actually, having more women in power in a society correlates with more peace and better social care on a number of measures, so if anything it should be the other way around. Times have changed Rush. You might want to press the button in your studio that sends you back to the 15th century where you came from.

Here's the Beyonce video. Just look how submissive she is!
