Rush Limbaugh -- Ram Sacked

10/14/2009 8:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Once again, Rush Limbaugh's been pushed away from the NFL -- the talk-show host has been officially dropped by a group looking to buy the St. Louis Rams.

Rush Limbaugh -- Ram Sacked
A rep from the group claimed Rush got the boot because his participation complicated the effort.

Ever since word got out that the conservative mouthpiece was interested in the team, several people lashed out against it -- including the owner of the Indianapolis Colts, the head of the NFL Player's Association and even Al Sharpton.

It might be the best thing that happened to Rush -- the Rams haven't won a single game this season.

To say that if this fool was a liberal nothing would have been said about his attempts to enter into the NFL owners' club - give me a break!!!!

This Fat Bas#&$*% has spit all over himself, along with is boyfriend Glenn Prick (Beck), when it comes to making claims of liberals being racist, elitist, etc.

I happen to live quite close to this sweaty, sloppy, slime of a man who has a terribly over-inflated sense of himself and - trust me - no one really gives a sh*& about what this idiot has to say except, of course, the bible-thumping, isolationistic, right-wingers (perfect example FOX News & Friends) who just can't seem to get over their HUGE loss in the last election.

Come on, boys and girls, it's time to grow up. If you can't play nicely, pick up your toys and go home!

This country was built on a right to free speech. It's a sad day when somebody is denied opportunity based on something they said. Unfortunately this case is about the things they Rush never said. I hope TMZ will look into things other NFL owners and the Commissioner have said in the past and just to make it fun, lets report as fact everything these people are alleged to have said, without verification. The top people at TMZ are Jewish, so lets open up the vault of anti-semitic comments made by the Revs. Al Sharpton and Jesse 'NYC Hymee Town' Jackson.

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

166. 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)"
------------------------------------------------
MAYBE , The Unknown Blogger who ,Apparently, Mis-Quoted Rush is Al Sharpton or Rahm Emanueal (just a thought) ? . A way to control the masses by the Collective Left (Pitt Group Against Group ,via Distract the Masses). According to online & newspaper sources , some people of different races are beginning to doubt one another , because of the Divisive nature of Far Left officials like George Soros or Al Sharpton .The Angry Words of Carter and others , Empowers the Group Nationalists (like Al Sharpton or even Michael Moore) and OPPRESSES Individual Rights and Entrepreneurs in the Community , at large. Collective Group Think or Collective Entitlement (Socialism) is what comes about through the spread of a 'Big Lie' and other methods. The Race Card Gets Played on ALL races (black,white,brown,etc.) , Suspicion is casted on the other and an 'Party' agenda is achieved. A Simple Example of this could be A Person saying 'Hey Look Over There, He Did It' , while people are looking ' over there' their actions become hidden.

Via Bloomberg, that ultra-democrat billionaire financier/philanthropist George Soros, may also be part of the same bid that Rush Limbaugh was Forced Out of. Is George Soros the Unknown Blogger that Spread a Big Lie about Rush on Wilkpedia. George Soros was a member of the 1940s Nazi party and said later in a interview that he does Not feel bad about stealing money from the E. Europe Jews because 'you know, someone would of done it'. Soros is considered a Criminal in the UK & Other Country.

'The South" is where all the "Republican Red State" Liberals are???

Main article: Slavery in the United States

Although the trans-Atlantic slave trade ended shortly after the American Revolution, slavery remained a central economic institution in the Southern states. All the Northern states passed emancipation acts between 1780 and 1804; most of these arranged for gradual emancipation.[55] In the South, however, slavery expanded with the westward movement of population. Historian Peter Kolchin wrote, "By breaking up existing families and forcing slaves to relocate far from everyone and everything they knew" this migration "replicated (if on a reduced level) many of [the] horrors" of the Atlantic slave trade.[56] Historian Ira Berlin called this forced migration the Second Middle Passage. Characterizing it as the "central event” in the life of a slave between the American Revolution and the Civil War, Berlin wrote that whether they were uprooted themselves or simply lived in fear that they or their families would be involuntarily moved, "the massive deportation traumatized black people, both slave and free."[57] By 1860, 500,000 slaves had grown to 4 million. As long as slavery expanded, it remained profitable and powerful and was unlikely to disappear. Antislavery forces, however, proposed to put it on the path to extinction by stopping further expansion. If it became unprofitable, few people would spend the large sums of cash needed to buy and keep slaves, and the system would fade away quietly as it had in most countries in world history.

The plantation system, based on tobacco growing in Virginia, North Carolina, and Kentucky, and rice in South Carolina, expanded into lush new cotton lands in Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi—and needed more slaves. But slave importation became illegal in 1808. Although complete statistics are lacking, it is estimated that 1,000,000 slaves moved west from the Old South between 1790 and 1860. Most of the slaves were moved from Maryland, Virginia, and the Carolinas. Michael Tadman, in a 1989 book Speculators and Slaves: Masters, Traders, and Slaves in the Old South, indicates that 60-70% of interregional migrations were the result of the sale of slaves. In 1820 a child in the Upper South had a 30% chance to be sold south by 1860.[58]

Political division over slavery was temporarily resolved by the Compromise of 1850 which sought to divide new territories between slave and free states. However, the status of Kansas was left unresolved, producing bloody clashes between pro-slavery and anti-slavery settlers. In 1860, the election of Abraham Lincoln as President on a program of limiting slavery led to the secession of Southern States and the outbreak of the US Civil War. Although Lincoln initially disclaimed any intention to interfere with slavery, the progress of the war produced the Emancipation Proclamation freeing slaves in Southern states still in revolt, and ultimately the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution in December 1865, which ended legalized slavery in the United States.

The very term Conservative means one wants old white southern politics to be "conserved." I admire Southern folks as very proper and hospitable.
There are, however, certain less eductaed factions i all over America that believed the genocide of indigenous native American indians was justified and necessary. Their subsuquent herding to patches of worthless desert were further evidence of European settlers betrayal of the Indians a "white" ruthlessness.
Now, Limbaugh has ruined a word once proudly associated with America. Liberty. Liberals want liberty, for all. Not just affluent whites. You Conservatives love women to have no rights, minorities to have no rights, and look down your noses at everyone who does not get in goose step with your perverted, narrow minded, sick political values. Justice to the highest bidder. Thank heaven repub legilators get $10 million each to vote against health care by the drug companies so they can continue their fleecing of America unimpeded by ANYONE. Conservatives are dupes for "the man." Ley france continue to be number 1 in health care. And the US far far behind at number 36. After all, that what the Conservative Drug Co's want. And they'll pay the Repub "Cons" to do their dirty wotk. greed, unabated. And assisted by Americans who let Limbaugh think for them. Lazy people who can't decipher information themselves. GWB was proud he never read anything, and had someone read to him. A common alcoholic him.

Hey Proud Liberal for bettering Americans First,

Why don't you put your money where your mouth is and leave this country forever? I mean, why would you care to live in a nation that was founded on such horrible atrocities? Hypocrite maybe?

183. The very term Conservative means one wants old white southern politics to be "conserved." (When in reality it means favoring TRADITIONAL views and values)

I admire Southern folks as very proper and hospitable.
There are, however, certain less eductaed factions i all over America (yes, these people call themselves "liberals" or "progressives")

that believed the genocide of indigenous native American indians was justified and necessary. Their subsuquent herding to patches of worthless desert were further evidence of European settlers betrayal of the Indians a "white" ruthlessness. (Yet you PROUDLY call yourself an American?)

Now, Limbaugh has ruined a word once proudly associated with America. Liberty. Liberals want liberty, for all. Not just affluent whites. (Actually that couldn't be further from the truth. Liberals main goal is to destroy freedom and liberty by making everyone equally miserable and taking from you what you've earned to give to the lazy)

You Conservatives love women to have no rights (when in reality it was Repulicans that first allowed women to vote)

minorities to have no rights (When it reality it was Democrats that owned slaves, created the KKK and fought the Republicans to keep segregation legal. MLK was a proud a Republican)

and look down your noses at everyone who does not get in goose step with your perverted, narrow minded, sick political values. (So says a member of a party who excuses child molesters and rapists on a daily basis)

Justice to the highest bidder. Thank heaven repub legilators get $10 million each to vote against health care by the drug companies so they can continue their fleecing of America unimpeded by ANYONE. (Do you have proof or just more of your typical liberal lies?)

Conservatives are dupes for "the man." ("The man" is Big Government. Something you, along with Obama, proudly support)

Ley france continue to be number 1 in health care. (Another lie. Your "poll" is in regard to coverage, not quality, which America ALWAYS ranks number 1)

And the US far far behind at number 36. After all, that what the Conservative Drug Co's want. (Yet anytime someone from a "free healthcare" society needs a serious surgery or treatment, they come here. Interesting....)

And they'll pay the Repub "Cons" to do their dirty wotk. greed, unabated. (Funny, since Obama lied to us and said he'd have no lobbyists anywhere near his administration, while in reality they cover it from head to toe)

And assisted by Americans who let Limbaugh think for them. Lazy people who can't decipher information themselves. (Quite possibly the most comicial of all your comments. This coming from a sheep of the DNC who thinks Bill Maher, Michael Moore and Sean Penn are brilliant true tellers)

GWB was proud he never read anything, and had someone read to him. A common alcoholic him. (Bush read more books in a month than you've probably read in your entire, meaningless, angry life)

It's so beautiful watching this moron make an ever living fool out of himself. His poll numbers are dropping by the day. With each passing week it becomes more and more clear he's a bumbling, radical idiot that only wants to destroy and weaken this nation. Watching this racist POS get thrown out on his boney anti-American hating arse in '12 is going to be a treat!!!

Rush's problem was he wasn't a druggie,thug, dog pit owner, illegally have a handgun in a night club. His only crime is that he is a conservative. If he was a liberal he could get away with anything and
be accepted by the NFL. That's okay at least Al Davis fight's the fight
But the NFL goes after anyone who disagrees look at the questionable
calls and see what teams it goes against. The NFL is a good old boy's
network. Rush your better off without them.
