Political Correctness Run Amuck in American Football

~ “LETTERS FROM AMERICA” - by The Metaphysical Peregrine ~

It’s frequently said that baseball is America’s pastime. That may have been true once, but the sport we truly have a passion for is football. One would like to be able to have a seat on weekends to watch, and during the week discuss the strategies and people of the teams, and get away from politics and political correctness. This week, Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh was under attack by the Left because he wanted to become a minor owner in the St Louis Rams. Limbaugh has the largest radio talk show in the nation, a nation currently overseen by Statists. If you’re not a Statist here, you are by definition a racist, bigot, homophobe. So much for sport for the sake of sport.

Limbaugh has been on the air for twenty one years, and has been vilified since day two. Without script he talks on air for fifteen hours a week; quite a skill. When it was announced that he was to be an investor in the Rams (which was supposed to be confidential and was leaked), the anti-diversity crowed started crowing. {Leftists promote diversity only if you belong to a group that supports them. Conservatives and Christians don’t count.} He was accused by racists and extortionists Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, CNN commentator Rick Sanchez, MSNBC News Analyst Chris Matthews and some ESPN sports commentators and a whole host of other leftist liars of making specific racist comments. What they were doing was blocking Limbaugh’s investment because he was a racist (because he’s a Conservative), and were primarily using two quotes attributed to him. Those were: "I mean, 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." and "You know who deserves a posthumous Medal of Honor? James Earl Ray. We miss you, James. Godspeed." (Ray assassinated Martin Luther King.)

These Leftist Liars ran into a huge problem. Limbaugh never said them. Everything he’s said for twenty one years is recorded, and no one can come up with the quotes. A few of these liars have retracted their charges; none have apologized for the slander and defamation. Limbaugh does have legal wheels in motion, and it wasn’t until he said he did that any retractions were offered. No apologies needed from their point of view though. If you’re a Republican or Conservative in this country, you are by definition a racist. For the race hustlers like Jackson and Sharpton, if you’re white you’re a racist by definition.

Several Conservative commentators, Limbaugh among them, said the election of Barack Obama to the Presidency of the United States would only heighten racial tensions, not lower them. So it has become. If one questions, let alone opposes, the fascist policies of Obama, of his hiring of communist “czars” to implement those policies, then you are a racist. If you are labeled so by the administration, his political party, or his lap dog supporters in the Main Stream Media, then you can’t even invest or spend your own money the way you want. Limbaugh was fired from the investment group. This is America?


  1. For so many years he has spent his time on the radio mis-labeling others. Finally he had his judgment day.

  2. It seems to me that all the negative vibes this blowhard (Rush Hudson Limbaugh A.KA. Jeff Christie) has been spewing over these many years has come back to blow back on his face (A classic “Blow Back”). He always tries to give off the airs that he can have anything he wants but as we all witness those with more money and more influence tossed him aside like sack of potatoes and the ultimate insult was that it was done in public (money don’t buy you everything butterball).

    Now of course he blames everyone else (Michael J. Fox, Perez Hilton, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Sonia Sotomayor, Hillary Clinton, Olympia Snowe, ESPN, NFL, the media, basically people of color, the handicapped, women and gays) when of course all you have to do is listen to his show and plainly hear his daily prejudices filled sermons. So NFL, I salute you decision, job well done. And to the whaling cry baby perched on his self made pedestal, quit your whining it was your own fault. He is reaping what he has sowed, KARMA, "palin and simple" like his followers. Don’t we all feel better?

  3. It's pay back time for him! Thanks for sharing this. Keep up the good work here. By the way, being a great sports fan is rewarding too! Here's one from Premio Foods, the producer of delicious and quality sausage products in the U.S. They're giving away free buy one get one coupon whenever your favorite team wins. Be a Premio Facebook Fan and check out the details. Thanks and have a great day!

  4. I can't believe how people are rationalizing this.

    It still detracts from the overall point: He should be free to buy what he damn well chooses. To block him on the "holier than thou" grounds is pure bull shit if you ask me.

    Plenty of hypocrisy to go around here.

  5. Paul, I appreciate what you're saying but I'm not buying it. Not one red cent. And this has nothing to do with left/right or any ideological bent. This is a clear case of a league hating controversy (though it gets PLENTY of it) and a double standard.

    As a sports junkie and historian, all I will point to you are the bios and rap sheets of sports owners.

    Like I said. Hypocrisy. Plenty of it.

    Such pointless hoopla for a guy who was going in as a MINORITY owner! Now watch Tommy Smothers buy a team and all will be swell. ;<)

    Thanks for engaging.

  6. Let me amend that: I'm not so reticent by nature so let's switch the red cent to yellow cent. Less harsh color.
