Placing Rush In Perspective

I am amazed at the media arrogance regarding Limbaugh's attempted purchase of the Rams.
Even the worst interpretation of his humor does not come close to the antics of Al Sharpton. On two occasions his hateful rhetoric led to riots that resulted in death. He slandered a government official and ruined his life with the Tawana Brawley hoax. Al Sharpton is a vile irresponsible bigot who should not comment on anyone's statements be it Limbaugh or Don Imus.

Then we have Rev Jesse Jackson of Hymietown fame. While all of the talk radio hosts comments are made in the attempt of entertainment Jackson's comments were not in that context.

Rush stated that McNaab is overated. Plenty of people say this about Tony Romo, Eli Manning and Derek Jeter.

If you want a pass for the most absurd behavior join the far left.

I'm not a Limbaugh fan per se.

That said, only a fool wouldn't see the double standard being applied to Limbaugh and, at the same time, excusing the likes of Sharpton and Jackson.

Nice straw man, Beak. Bring up Sharpton and Jackson as if they have anything to do with it.
Fact is that the NFL likes a low profile. They DON'T WANT controversy.

So the last thing they want to do is sit for a few hours a day worrying about what this 'tard is going to say.

But I give you credit for performing according to type. You're a right winger and absolutely incapable of accepting any responsibility for negative outcomes. You simply don't understand that your own behavior can be the root cause.

For her next act, AOW, will explain the last time Al Sharpton tried to but anything like an NFL franchise and why the "double standard" is an operative concept here.

Right wingers, fish in a barrel.

Lets see the NFL has a series of criminals whose actions are more severe than any of Limbaughs comments. The NFL has drug addicts wife beaters and this is for starters.

Sharpton and Jackson are far leftists who are given a pass for rabid antisemitism. In the case of Sharpton Incitement to riot and criminal defamation are facts.

In the case of far leftists one can say or do anything.

Drive a woman off a bridge and you can get elected to the Senate for years.

Have a brothel in the Townhouse you live in and you get hailed as brilliant in the media.

Cheat on real estate taxes, host every communist despot and make decades of idiotic comments and you can chair the house ways and means committee.

Be in the Klan and you can be in the Seanate for years.

Say Mcnaab is over rated it is never forgotten.

Yeah, Ducky, I have to admit, I do see your point here. The NFL should stick to the kinds of spokespersons and officials that are not divisive and controversial, the kind of person who can appeal to the broadest possible segment of the American population and who is highly unlikely to utter anything that is insulting, demeaning, defamatory, or insensitive.

You know-people like Keith Olbermann.

Leave it to Ducky to make sure no one doubts his leftism by saying the most imbecilic things possible at every opportunity.

The facts:

- Rush Limbaugh, granted an opportunity to purchase the Rams, would have been a majority stakeholder in the ownership of the team not a spokesperson. And as a team owner would have had a voice in staff hiring decisions, possibly bringing the Rams something they have not had since Dominic Frontiere died, which is a team owner that knows something about football.

- Al Sharpton has no business calling anyone a racist.

- Donovan McNabb IS over-rated.

NFL Players Association Executive Director DeMaurice Smith served as counsel to Attorney General Eric Holder and was a member of Barack Obama’s transition team. That is enough to make me wonder if the president or at least people close to him took some action to squelch Limbaugh's part in the deal.

Several quotes attributed to Limbaugh on various news shows simply were not made by him. What this is about is not racism but ideology. However charges of "racism" are now the favored way for the Left obliterate their opponents without having to engage in actual debate of ideas.

Don't like what someone stands for? Just call them a "racist" and make up a "quote" or not even that. Just holler "racist, racist racist" over and over until believe it without analyzing the actual evidence.

I say: Huh?

Forget the buying.

Concentrate on the double standard. Sharpton and Jackson can say all manner of controversial things and not be taken to task by the media for saying them. Not so with Limbaugh.

ducky stepped in the cow patties, again...somebody hose him off, please.
GOD bless and MARANATHA!

If it's; leftista, dhimmi, stupid, double standard or innane...

Ducky's here said...

Beak, what the bleep does Sharpton's antisemitism (and he is) have to do with purchasing an NFL franchise?

Are you capable of an adult discussion?

Ducky's here said...

The NFL has drug addicts wife beaters and this is for starters.


Of course we don't know if "Talent on Loan from Synthetic Morphine" ever beat any of his three wives (I suspect they beat him) but we do know he doctor shopped and had his maid out cruising Denny's parking lots to score dope for him.

Ducky's here said...

Really Beak, this is a fun site.

I didn't know Keith Olbermann owned an NFL team. It's amazing what you can learn from Libertarians.

The Pagan Temple said...

I guess we can assume that the Duckster would be fine with Rush Limbaugh being a host of NBC Sunday Night Football.
