Sharpton

Looks to Stuff the Rush

In NFL

10/12/2009 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Al Sharpton is playing some serious defense for the St. Louis Rams -- The Rev has launched an all-out blitz to keep Rush Limbaugh from buying the NFL franchise.

In the wake of several reports that Limbaugh is serious about becoming an NFL owner, Sharpton fired off a letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, begging the football honcho to reject Rush from the league.

In the letter, Sharpton tells Goodell, "Rush Limbaugh has been divisive and anti-NFL on several occasions with comments about NFL Players including Michael Vick and Donovan McNabb."

In 2003, Limbaugh famously argued that Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb was getting special treatment in the press because the media wanted to see a black quarterback succeed.

But in his letter, Sharpton brought up another Rush-centric controversy, adding that Rush's "recent statement that the NFL was beginning to look like a fight between the Crips and the Bloods without the weapons, was disturbing."

Sharpton's letter comes in the wake of public opposition from the head of the NFL Players Association, who also asked Goodell to reject Rush from the league.

Angry Democrat 'Sky Blu' from LMFAO attack GOP Romney on Purpose .    

An Unknown Blogger stated that Rush agrees with slavery (Note: Slavery was the Ideals of Leftist Democrats in that Era, who Did Not believe in Individual Rights). According to Rush this is a Bold Face Lie. So Will the Unknown Blogger come forward and prove that he (or she) is telling the Truth. Who Is the Blogger And Why Did Al Sharpton , MSNBC , Players Association Chief (A Huge Democrat Campaign Manager) , CNN , Consider this Valid. Is George Soros (Soros is a actual former member of the 1940s Nazi Party ) Really part of the Group that will Buy the Rams that just forced Rush out ? Who is Telling the Truth. If Rush did say that , than he is a liar that does Not believe in Individual Rights. If this is ,indeed, a Lie a Blogger told than we have an Introduction to fascism in the USA (Combine Business & Government with a wreckless Ideal (The Spread of a Lie) is fascism). Note: A Good Comment from a Blogger Below: "Democrats are the party of Democrat Era 'Jim Crow' (slavery by democrat activists ) , 1960 s Socialism (Imagine) , 1990s Group Nationalism (Malcom X / Al Sharpton to Michael Moore, Sean Penn , etc) , 2000s ‘Make Al-Qaeda Terrorists the Victims Movement’ by Democrat D Durbin , Nancy Pelosi , Patrick Leahy (through photos & policy), & 2009 SOCIALISM (Nationalization of Car Companies , Environment / Human Intake ,Government Option SOCIALIZED HEALTH (Control People like Democrat Jim Crow Era, Did)" Is the Quote on Rush about Slavery (Slavery Done by Democrat in that Era) TRUE or NOT TRUE. If it is Not True than we have an Introduction to Fascism in the USA . Note: I do Not like stating this and we are No where near (Not Yet) to actual Fascist Societies that Exist in Chavez's Venezuela , Iran, or Libya.

Instead of kicking Rush off the air, they should kick Sharpton, that racist pig, off the planet !!! Al Sharpton referring to himself as Reverand, is like my dog referring to himself as your highness.
