Rush Limbaugh responded to Gloria Steinem’s comments that he turned the word “feminism” into a “bad word,” insisting his word “feminazi” actually “better explained what they were all about.”

Limbaugh, on his radio show Friday, acknowledged that he turned the world “feminism” into a “bad word” insisting, “All I did was expose it.”

Friday on “CBS This Morning,” former Playboy playmate Gloria Steinem claimed, “The word ‘feminism’ has been turned into a bad word by Rush Limbaugh who talks about feminazis every day, and so — but if people just go to the dictionary and discover that it means a person, male or female, who believes in the full equality of women and men, then they do subscribe to it and it is a majority now, which it didn’t used to be.”

“Right,” said 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.  But her definition is not even close to the way the feminazis use the entire feminist movement.”

“It was based in leftist ideology,” suggested Limbaugh. “It was based on men are predators and men are evil and men are men.  It was designed to create a war between and against men and women.  All I did was expose it.  That word “feminazi,” they never gotten over because that word actually better explained what they were all about.  It rang so true.”
