A Moment On Rush

I don't want to get all political or anything, but late last week, it was reported that their were some investors lined up to put a bid in on the St. Louis Fucking Awfuls. One of the main men behind this move is the proud owner of these doozies:

"You know who deserves a posthumous Medal of Honor? James Earl Ray (Dr. King's assassin). We miss you, James. Godspeed."

"Let's face it, we didn't have slavery in this country for over 100 years because it was a bad thing. Quite the opposite: Slavery built the South. I'm not saying we should bring it back. I'm just saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after dark."

McNabb, he said, is "overrated ... what we have here is a little social concern in the NFL. The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback can do well—black coaches and black quarterbacks doing well."

Now, my negative opinions on Rush Limbaugh aside, this is not acceptable for the NFL. In a league where a majority of the players are not white, you can't have an owner who has a history of race-related remarks. You just can't. Sure, it's a free country and you can say what you want to. But that doesn't mean that he is entitled to co-owning a football team. Hell, black players are already saying that they would never play for a team owned by Rush.

I think that we are all smart enough to see through this though. Limbaugh has no desire to actually do this. This is just a publicity stunt. I don't know what exactly he is trying to promote, but this is nothing but an ego-trip. So let's stop giving him what he wants. Let's squash this stupid rumor and let him go back to whatever it is that he does best...either inspiring people or annoying them.

Rush, you can fuck with the minds of Americans as much as you want to. Really, I do not care. BUT DON'T YOU GODDAMN DARE FUCK WITH MY NFL. Although it would be funny to see a pro football team comprised entirely of white people. I'm pretty sure that they could beat this Rams team.

And fuck Stephen Gay Smith too.

No way can you bar Rush Limbaugh from being an NFL owner. If he's got the money to overpay these athletes, he's got the right to do so. You can't sympathize for the African American football players, while they make money we won't ever come close to making.

Well, Nate, it looks like they are. Remember, you don't have a "right" to own an NFL team if you have a less than reputable character.

I don't believe that I did show sympathy toward black athletes.

Grumpy said...

At least one NFL owner, Jim Irsay, has already said he won't vote for any group that includes Rush.

Mr. Ace said...

There are plenty of other team owners who have questionable character...the Coors family comes to mind. But Rush is just dumb enough to vocalize his ignorant hate speech. No way he belongs in the NFL.

GMoney said...

I thought that Pat Bowlen owned the Broncos? Is he part of the Coors conglomerate? And what exactly makes them awful other than putting out terrible beers?

Mr. Ace said...

Don't they still own the Rockies? Here is a quote from William Coors, "...ancestors were dragged here in chains against their will… I would urge those of you who feel that way to go back to where your ancestors came from, and you will find out that probably the greatest favor that anybody ever did you was to drag your ancestors over here in chains, and I mean it."
