Rush Limbaugh Plays The Victim After Rejection From NFL

I am back in my hometown again this week, which means that I couldn't help but listen to the Rush Limbaugh Show again yesterday as I drove down the highway from Atlanta to South Carolina. As I was listening to Limbaugh pontificate I remembered a guy I went to high school with named Micheal something or other who had red hair and was arguably the most obnoxious and aggravating person in the entire school.

My classmate was bombastic and ridiculous and took every opportunity he could to "get back" at the teacher if they admonished him for acting like an ass. Now they call it "ADD", but back then, he was just a loud mouthed, ill mannered, short attention spanned bully who was always biting his fingernails or fidgeting or ssomething, as if he was just a bundle of raw nerves.

Maybe he's a talk radio star now like Limbaugh.

Limbaugh wailed and huffed yesterday like Fred Flintstone did when the Water Buffalo Lodge refused to let him in. The irony is, he is probably more like some of the owners (except John Irsay, and maybe the Rooney's) than we want to admit - except they are smart enough not to pollute the airwaves with that old "cracker-assed cracker" race baiting garbage Limbaugh equates with "ballsiness" or some other ridiculous measure he fantasizes is the embodiment of white male manly prerogative.

For a guy like Limbaugh to want to own a piece of a team in a league where at least 70% of the players on every team are black speaks to the power of the profits and the prestige that the NFL generates. I don't have a problem with him owning a piece of a pro team, but I'd be lying if I didn't admit to reveling a lot in the comeuppance he got yesterday from other rich white men.

Or as I call people like them on this blog, "white people with good sense."

Limbaugh is right, though, when he says that it is wrong that rappers own pieces of teams and he can't - for once, he equates himself with someone who is actually at his level of importance to society.

They're out there on stage rolling up "stanky" and talking nonsense, and he's on the radio, crushing up Oxycontin and talking nonsense.

Brown Man, be careful about what you post to the web. Jesse Jackson and Al are getting sued because they lied on broadcast news. If Rush said these things why no sound bytes. Ever wonder why the mainstream news won't say he said these things. They can't find the actual quote from Rush. Its a radio show, if these quotes ever existed then they should be all over the news. Large media is not stupid they no that they would be sued. Should be easy to disprove me just post the clips of the show.

If Rush Limbaugh would waste his time suing an unknown blogger he's in worse shape than I thought.

And if he hired a lawyer who read as poorly as you do, Richwhitemale, he is really up the creek.

The key thing in this piece I wrote, the one that I should highlight in bold print because the sensation rags like HuffPo and Drudge won't even think of this angle, and the mainstream press is never willing to focus on anything other than the obvious, is the rejection of Rush by people he considers to be his own kind - other rich white men.

THAT has got to hurt more than anything Jessie or Al could ever say.

But I can always appreciate veiled threats, even from anonymous posters like you - they usually mean I'm on the right trail.

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. Don’t we all feel better?

man, this is a boring blog... whitey is racist, whitey is racist, waaah!!!! WAAAAAH!!!

The politically-correct NFL is Rush's own kind because they're the same race? Man, you are a mindless, race-obsessed something or other.

How trite you are.

Just on a lark, I typed the phrase "whitey is racist" into the "SEARCH THIS BLOG" query line that is the second item from the top to see what came up.

The ONLY item that came up was a comment by a visitor on the post titled "When Are White People Going To Stop Waiting For A Handout?"

What you might want to consider, though, is a leisurely stroll through a four part series I did last year, called "White Americans and the Politics of Race", which espouses in detail the nuances of the philosophy I actually do use when sizing up the racial component of human conflicts.
