RUSH LIMBAUGH TAKES ON THE NFL AND THE RACE CARD

17 Oct

A great piece by Rush Limbaugh was put online last night by the Wall Street Journal. I encourage you to read it. On today’s Chad Hasty Show we will discuss this topic. Read the story and let me know what you think.

Rush Limbaugh: The Race Card, Football, and Me

Part of the article:

The NFL players union boss, DeMaurice Smith, jumped in. A Washington criminal defense lawyer, Democratic Party supporter and Barack Obama donor, he sent a much publicized email to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell saying that it was important for the league to reject discrimination and hatred.

When Mr. Goodell was asked about me, he suggested that my 2003 comment criticizing the media’s coverage of Donovan McNabb—in which I said the media was cheerleading Mr. McNabb because they wanted a successful black quarterback—fell short of the NFL’s “high standard.” High standard? Half a decade later, the media would behave the same way about the presidential candidacy of Mr. Obama.
