WIMPS, Intolerance: Reports Say Limbaugh Dropped by NFL Bid Group

By Debbie Schlussel

If ESPN’s report is true (tip:  reader Norman F), the group seeking to buy the St. Louis Rams NFL team–of which Rush Limbaugh was a minority investor–have decided to dump Rush, amid manufactured controversy by intolerant bigots who hate conservatism.


If that’s true, I’m very sorry to see it.  It’s a disturbing development, especially if reports are true that far-left “former” Nazi George Soros is also a part of the group, headed by St. Louis Blues owner Dave Checketts.

We’re truly in an age of intolerance–by leftists, Muslims, former hippies, minority groups, etc.  You can’t hold mainstream conservative American values in America and be a prominent voice for them without coming repeatedly under attack.  Apparently, a Nazi far-leftist, Soros, is more acceptable.

Hey, Rush, the silver lining is that, like Groucho Marx said, you wouldn’t want to be a member of this group that would admit you as a member. . . especially since we now know they’re wimps and likely include Soros.

I hope this–that Rush is being dumped–isn’t true.  But if it is, I’m sad for him because he’s dreamed of being involved with the NFL.  And I’m sad for us because it’s a sign of the ultra-nadir to which our country has sunk.

Obama inherited a disastrous situation, no doubt. The previous administration dug America into an economic chasm that we’ll be digging out of for quite some time. That’s indisputable. Some of the data you cite clearly dates back to 2008. Unemployment figures will continue to be a problem for quite some time. This comes as no surprise to Obama or Bernanke, who keep saying it’s going to take some time for unemployment to ebb.

But Wall Street is rallying, confidence is back, 401ks are up. America is turning a profit as banks repay their bailout loans. This recovery has to start somewhere and these are the first signs. And once again, unemployment claims are way down this week than previously forecast. This is where it starts.

To think that unemployment would turn around 6-9 months after the previous administration left is folly.

“the weekly unemployment claim is the lowest its been in 9 months”
Could that be because some people’s unemployment claims have run out? I wonder how many are now on food stamps and welfare.

This whole NFL thing is just a publicity stunt by Rush. He knew there would be controversy and that he would get a big headline out of it. Oh yeah, higher ratings too!

having just watched segment on espn – this scam was purposely setup by soros and checketts to take focus off soros and to improve chances of bid by adding faulk and praised for dropping limbaugh WHO they went to his house to convince him to join their group. limbaugh said he told them right then “do you know the firestorm this would cause?”

is checketts that dumb or was it a setup?

AND its worked never once was soros name mentioned on ESPN nor his baggage!

The economic crisis was caused by the catastrophic mortgage meltdown caused by the CRA which forced banks to provide mortgages to people who wouldn’t be able to pay back. The blame for this falls squarely on the shoulders of Carter and Clinton and their cronies including Blarney Frank that enforced this insane policy.

Bush was also a failure but the main cause of the failure was the totally irresponsible kill the goose that laid the golden egg policies of the Democrats.

you are defending a drug addict criminal…i’m sorry i’m not cool enough like rush and have not been arrested…lets defend a real conservative instead of wasting our time here

He is neither a drug addict nor a criminal (despite his possible abuse of Oxycontin).

However, he is one of the primary causes of the defeat of the Conservatives because he didn’t rebuke Bush when Bush violated all the principles of Conservatism. He also didn’t support Conservatives in the primaries.

This disheartened the Conservative base and led to the disastrous candidate Rino McCain and to the ascendancy of Obama since the Conservatives didn’t want to vote for the McCain pseudo Republican.

facts of life and trevor are both goofs from the left and should concentrate on the fine democruds like William Jefferson, William Jefferson Clinton, Ted Kennedy, Diane Feinstein, Barbara Boxer, Diane Fienstein, Harry Reid, Barney Frank, Jesse Jackson, etc. All of which have been responsible for far worse things such as murder, rape, financial fraud, black mail on a grand scale. If not for Rush, the country wouldn’t have all the watch dogs it has now and we’d look something like Lebanon right now with open(even more) borders and anarchy.

    I’m so far right that I’m over the horizon for you. Get over it. Rush failed us in his servility to Bush.

    Bush left the borders open, he persecuted Ramos and Compean, he allowed Geneva conventions to apply to terrorists, he didn’t back up the marines in the Pendleton 8 and Haditha Murtha persecutions.

    Rush didn’t criticize him for any of this. Savage is the only true Conservative commentator.

    Rush’s lack of leadership was a big factor in the last 2 disastrous Republican election losses.

I lost faith in Rush and Hannity when throughout the entire Bush administration there was never a cross word about their savior. I beleive it was the Bush influence that ended the scandal with oxycotton. So he was beholden to the administration. I didn’t agree with his comments on Mcnabb a few years ago plus they were unnessecary. But that shouldn’t influence his persuit for team ownership, hell what about the Titans or Buffalo lets check the owners private minds see what you get. As for the NFL, since the ’98 and ’05 Superbowls I’ve come to realize its a sham organization putting on a made for TV show to generate income and cover multiple points spreads. Roger Goodell spends too much time paying attention to his press clippings instead of overseeing the integrity and honesty of the game. Let’s see what storyline they try to portray in this years Superbowl. It usually depends on whichever state is due for a new taxpayer financed stadium.

he says he was misquoted but you can’t trust a word that comes out of a drug addict’s mouth. How do you know when a drug addict (Rush) is lying? Whenever they open their mouth. So lets not even bother defending him and stick to supporting true conservatives like Tim Pawlenty.

I have earned Rush a few times (he is on in the middle of the day) and he really seemed to me just to defend the Republican party. I remember him saying the bible was not being interpreted correctly regarding the environment although I agree the so called green people today are phonies but that wasn’t what Rush said. We should protect the environment although it is best down through property rights.

Also, Rush is good friends with Hannity and Levin and I have heard that Rush plagurizes a lot as well. He pretends Savage doesn’t exist although others reported he started us the phrase trick up poverty which Savage started on his how. Savage has at times supported other talk shows with their problems but they pretend he doesn’t exist. He also belongs to a private club in Florida that doesn’t allow blacks of Jews which I guess is their right but I don’t think that is good.

I think Rush doesn’t mind what Hannity does because he does it as well.

I know Debbie’s father liked Rush but overall I think he defends the Republicans no matter what they do.

If he couldn’t mention a word about Savage (I know Savage at times can be obnoxious) but still. I think overall Savage has fought many issues. The reason he was put on this ban list was (he sometimes believes) it was started with Bush when he criticized the Dubia ports deal that Bush wanted to push forward.

I’m sorry that you are not pleased that racist anti-women idiots are not allowed to own national league football teams. Maybe he can console himself on his shitty show and with his MILLIONS OF DOLLARS. It isn’t about rights, its about image. Nobody would want to bother with the Rams if Rush was in charge.
