Limbaugh……Oppressed by the Black Man

Limbaugh got screwed

The Oppressed

The Oppressed

He didn’t get screwed in the good way, the kind he usually has to pay for. It comes as no surprise to anyone that Rush Limbaugh was dropped from a group bid to buy the St. Louis Rams. Roger Goodell and the NFL hierarchy have made an asinine decision and landed themselves in quite a kerfuffle of judicious right wing anger over this move. They simply folded under the weight of the liberal media and the black race-baiters. Sharpton and Jackson slammed the race card down like it was the final set in a jailhouse game of spades.

 Ok, I was doing a Limbaugh-esqe shtick there; in other words…full-o-shit. But still, I think Rush would have been great for the NFL. This decision was so wrong on so many levels………

 Limbaugh is an entertainer -Although I personally can’t stand the bald, bloated, ego-maniacal, drug-addicted, hypocritical, media whore, he is just playing a role. I don’t like Donald Trump either, but that doesn’t mean he shouldn’t own Miss America. And I mean that literally. I have to give Limbaugh his due respect in the fact that he is extremely intelligent and a terrific actor. He studied niche markets before it was the cool thing to do. He grabbed his red-neck, ignorant crowd, and his old, rich, frightened white man demographic by the balls, and he has made enough money to keep himself in opiates and KFC until the day he dies. His core audience is doing the equivalent of what a bunch of Italians pledging their undying allegiance to Michael Corleone would be doing. Limbaugh (or at least his ‘personality’) is a fictional character.

 He most likely is a racist, but so was Marge Schott, so is Jerry Jones, and so are half of the old white men who own sports franchises. If controversy was a deciding factor in team ownership then Jay-Z, Mark Cuban and many others would never have had a shot. They are worried about their image? They let Vick, Ray Lewis and countless others come back after felony convictions for fuck’s sake!    

 Ticket Sales -Has the NFL learned nothing from Vince McMahon and the WWE? People either love, or love to hate a bad guy. It fills stadiums like magic. The Raiders and Al Davis have been way too pathetic to hate for years now, and the NFL needs an antihero. Not only are ticket and merchandise sales down in St. Louis, but in many other cities as well. Having the fat man as an owner would fill seats and raise television ratings with people hoping to see his team get crushed, or at least to see him OD.

 Ticket Sales –With Limbaugh as an owner (and maybe Hannity as coach) the NFL would draw an entirely new demographic to the sport. This would successfully tap into the NASCAR and Tea Party niches. People who were always too scared to go to a game because of all the minorities, would now come in legion. The Natural Ice and corn dog concessions alone would be worth millions. Plus, imagine the pure entertainment value of having stadiums filled with these people………..

Smart too!

                                                                                                                                              

 Life Expectancy -Rush would have to spend a great deal of his time in St. Louis. This would keep him out of New York and Florida which are places that I might have to be. Plus he’d probably end up getting wiped off the face of the earth within a year. With his penchant for drugs, and St. Louis’s penchant for not fucking around, I’d give him between 5-7 months.

 The NFL Played into His Chubby Hands –This is exactly what he wanted, counted on, and knew would happen. It gives him yet another platform to spew his vitriolic ramblings, and garners him even more support (money) from his loyal lemmings. If the NFL would have just played along, he probably would have just dropped out anyway. So please stop keeping the white man down!!

  1. I keep hearing this stuff about role playing for Rush and Glen Beck, but it’s still destructive. Who needs them?

    • I hear you Davis, but you gotta understand that this post was ‘tongue in cheek,’ yea? I’m sicker than anybody of the entertainers successfully dividing the country, but you have to laugh that shit off man!
      Thanks Davis!!

  2. Once again the rich white man is getting screwed by the black power structure. When will someone stand up and defend the white man in this country?

    In all seriousness, Rush was only going to be a limited partner. Under league rules he would have no say in the running of the team, nor would he have any say about the NFL inner workings either. I understand that the NFL is a private organization with an anti-trust exemption and they get to choose who joins their club and who doesn’t. But this was all pretty silly.

    BTW, Mark Cuban attempted to buy the Chicago Cubs and was shot down even though he presented the best financial package. People get rejected in their attempts to buy professional sports teams all the time. The reasons aren’t always fair or even make sense.

    • Nice comment Jay. I remember the Cuban/Cubs thing. I actually like Mark Cuban a lot. He’s been great for Dallas, and great for basketball. It doesn’t hurt my opinion that he’s a Pittsburgh boy either.

      I think the NFL was totally right in nixing Limbaugh’s bid. I believe that the whole thing was more or less a publicity stunt for him anyway. I think he was going to use every opportunity to do what he’s always done. Divide, conquer, and make money.

      Thanks Jay!!

  3. You got to hand it to the guy, he knows the game better than any other talk show host out there. He’s kicking ass, and yes, I hate his fucking guts.

    It’s sad really, that the country has produced an iconic figure of the fat, white, racist, bigot.
    Archie Bunker was a lot easier to handle being a TV character, given a script to perform. Funny stuff!

    Rush is not funny. He’s a loud mouth prick who’s winning the game.

    • You hit the nail on the head Micky. The guy just did his research. It’s the same way that I sell products. So much of advertising is psychology, and what he, Beck, Hannity, and the rest of them do is drive right to the heart of man’s worst nature…..fear and hate. But it sells like a mother fucker. It’s hard for me to comprehend how so many otherwise intelligent people could be led like sheep to the slaughter. And he’s laughing his way right to the bank, and then to his ‘pain management’ appointment(s)!

      Thanks Micky!!

  5. I’m sorry its taken me so long to stop in but glad I chose today. An excellent post, Scott. Very funny and true as well. Great stuff.

    And if Hannity were coach, it might even entice me to watch the NFL – just to see the trainwreck post-game interviews.

    Many thanks.

    • I’m so glad you stopped by Don; it’s great to see you! You add a certain sophistication that I’ve been sorely lacking until now.

      I hadn’t even thought of the hilarious post game interviews. Half of the crowd would be drunken NFL fans chanting, “We’re #1!” and the other half would be chanting everything from, “USA, USA” to, “NOBAMA” to, “They’re going to Kill Your Granny!” before (or after) succumbing to hysterics, and punching the ground. That alone would be worth the price of addition!

      Thanks Don!!

  6. They should let him buy it…lots of drugs to OD on in St Louie

    Comment by suzettevaughn | October 17, 2009 | Reply

    • That was my reasoning as well. Plus the chance of him getting caught in a random act of senseless violence would be tenfold!

      Thanks Suzettevaughn!!

  7. I think they should let him have the team. I mean, they can’t do worse than whatever regime has turned them into the Detroit Lions of the Corn Belt.

    He could hang out with Jerry Jones, smoking cigars, talking about executions and stuff rich white people like (presumably, cigars and capital punishment.)

    I used to listen to him a lot back in my formative years. After living some life out in the real world, I became very disenchanted with those who believe that the louder they speak, the more correct they are (Beck, O’Reilly, whoever that chick is who fills in for them…).

    I remain a fiscal conservative and near libertarian, which is pretty goddamned frustrating these days.

    Good post, Scott. The man can hardly operate a prescription drug habit on his own at this point. However, he may have followed the lead of the USFL, WNBA and other bastardized leagues’ naming conventions and renamed them the St. Louis Rush.

    Comment by Capitalist Lion Tamer | October 17, 2009 | Reply

    • You are right on the money as usual CLT. I assume that you’re correct in rich white men discussing cigars and capital punishment, but I believe other topics of conversation would also include hostile takeovers, single malt scotch, Tiger Fucking Woods, the most efficient ways to kill puppies, offshore accounting practices, sunblock, hunting human game, and nefarious plans to create a new world order. But I’m just guessing here.

      I also used to listen to him while I had a job that required a lot of driving. This was before he went all over the top. I used to consider myself a fiscal conservative and a social liberal, but I’ve changed many opinions throughout my life. I don’t believe the government should ever be bailing out huge corporations or entire industries for that matter. But I’ve now come to believe that society does owe it to its citizens to take care of those that can’t take care of themselves. When so many of the homeless have unchecked mental health issues, when so many people are kicked out of their homes, I do believe that something needs to be done. Without oversight, capitalism becomes a very dangerous thing. Corporations tend to be greedy and ruthless, and need the occasional smackdown. But maybe living in Europe has turned me into an evil socialist.

      Great comment CLT, I love having honest, intelligent conversations with people of reason!!

  8. Nice job Scott. I tend to agree with you, but frankly all talking heads of any variety drives me batshit.

    • It’s awesome to see you FJ; I’ve missed your witty banter! I do agree with you, the Olbermann’s drive me just as crazy as the Beck’s (and do just as much damage). There is just way to much division over everything in the states right now, and I blame them. When did people stop thinking for themselves?

      Thanks FJ!!

    Not a rush fan but I think the group trying to buy the Rams caved as well..since when is your opinion a hinderance to having the right to own something….The NFL is a real enigma ..its just a matter of time before Goodell caves and lets Dante Stallworth back in the league and he actually killed someone…i think sharpton and jackson are crap and roger goodell should stand up to them and protect his leagues reputation…oh wait gotta go WWE is on….zman sends

    Comment by steve | October 17, 2009 | Reply

    • I do agree that Goodell will eventually cave and let Stallworth back in. Since the NFL is private with antitrust exemption, they do get to pick and choose who they allow into their club; as Jay also pointed out earlier. While I’m a fan of free speech in every regard, I also completely understand (and agree with) the NFL’s decision. They didn’t want to alienate ¾ of their players and half of their fan base. They’ve made bad decisions about their image many times before but have still managed to maintain the best ‘brand’ in pro sports. I’m sure that nobody would block Rush’s bid for a NASCAR crew, or baring that, he’d be a terrific WWE manager. Do you remember that tiny, red faced guy who always got beat up when we were kids? Hilarious!

      Thanks Steve!

  10. Let’s solve a few problems all in one shot. Let the government own all of the major sporting teams. We could ease the deficit and can’t you just imagine all of the professional sports players being paid by the government? Talk about income caps!

    Comment by Claire Collins | October 18, 2009 | Reply

    • It would turn all the players into bureaucrats. They’d need the yellow form to be able to sign the blue form to throw the ball. But only if you signed a pre-notarized waiver before hand. Although if it would give me a cut of their money, I might be down with that!

      Thanks Claire!

  11. Ok, so knowing little about Rush Limbaugh (except that I could never figure out why someone would name their kid after a verb) and knowing even less about the NFL, all I can say is that I would read this post a hundred times over for this quote alone:

    “I don’t like Donald Trump either, but that doesn’t mean he shouldn’t own Miss America. And I mean that literally”

    Comment by bschooled | October 18, 2009 | Reply

    • Ooh, I always assumed they named him for the 3-man rock group. I guess the timing doesn’t really work on my theory, since he was born well before they even existed. I guess it’s not such a cool name if it’s just for a verb.

      I’m glad that you enjoyed that line! I figure that if at least one line makes at least one person happy, then one deserving kid will be halfway to camp!

      Thanks B!!

  13. What? I am outraged to find out that the old, fat, bald, and racist club would not let another member in to join. What has America come to? It’s a political unjustice what the NFL has done here.

      Thanks Tammie!!

  14. The thing I like about Rush, is that when I pass out over at his house after hammering down 12 year old, double malt scotch and hand fulls of OxyContin I don’t wake up with the taste of dick in my mouth, just balls. That’s respect!

    • Hahahaha, you got off really light. I know the only time I was unfortunate enough to make that mistake, I woke up being gang raped by Rush, Cheney, Steele, and some other guy wearing a Nixon mask. I thought maybe it was Bodhi from Point Break, but I realized that he was Reagan, and they were both dead. Too soon?

      Thanks again, Rooster!!

    • I think a lot of people would pay to see that. I’m sure that since your Pats are ‘East Coast Elitists’ they would sue NE for the use of the red, white, and blue team colors as well.

  16. Rumor around these parts: Rush will buy the Redskins since Dan Snyder sucks and has no friends in the DC area. They might actually GIVE the Redskins to Rush.

    And you thought the ‘Skins were scraping the bottom of the barrel. Oh no. It’s Rock Bottom, 50 feet of crap, then the Redskins. What more harm could Rush do. I think he’s kind of hot.

    I just threw up in my mouth a little bit. That’s the biggest lie I’ve ever told. SHUDDER

    • I love your sarcastic sense of humor! Rush is actually kind of hot in a ‘I’d like to set you on fire’ kind of way. I feel very sorry for the Skins fans. Pittsburgh my not have a ton of other attractions but at least they have the Steelers!
