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.

OOWEEE    

The Yams and St. Louis are losers and deserve each other, because they are both riddled with Jim Crow Sports Media, Jim Crow Gang Crime, Jim Crow School System, a Jim Crow Mayor, and Jim Crow Lifestyles. (If you do not know, Jim Crow are the Laws that were designed to keep certain persons as slaves, to keep them uneducated, ignorent, trifling, and unable to function in a white society). And if you do not believe the Yams are Jim Crow, then watch them throw that brown foot ball in the wrong direction.

RUSH: By the way, speaking of lies -- and speaking of James Earl Ray, a vicious lie that the Reverend Jackson is knowingly spreading about me -- let's talk about another lie involving Jesse Jackson and James Earl Ray. Let's not forget the Reverend Jackson's claim to fame and how it actually began. The morning after Dr. Martin Luther King was assassinated, Jesse Jackson (who had hired a PR firm) did television interviews claiming that King had died in his arms. It was a blatant lie, according to Ralph David Abernathy, who said that the Reverend Jackson wasn't even there at the time of the assassination. But he did show up in time to take some of Dr. King's blood and smear it on his own shirt to promote the lie that he had held Dr. King in his arms. (interruption) You didn't know that, Dawn? And now, Jesse Jackson is lying about me. Over and over again, and repeatedly so. Blatantly and knowingly so.

Facism at its finest. With a socialist like Obama in power, get use to it. Our Constitution is out the window already and I guess freedom of opinion is as well. The Rams team no longer exists now as far as I am concerned, losers.

GOOD! He's an idiot, his followers are idiots (just see some of the prior dumbass comments for proof) and the world and NFL are both much better off that his fat RACIST ass can sit on the sidelines and preach to his demented twisted lost soul followers. Now respond in kind with some racist rhetoric that only proves my point. What you Rushtards don't realize is every post filled with racist hate only justifies why your slovenly leader was unceremoniously shown the curb.

Rush can be idiotic and has been "unusually angry" for the past 5 years but his comment/observation didn't make him Marge Schott who was the very definition of a racist.

I love it. Rush has the balls to say what most of the world is thinking.

RUSH: And from Jake Tapper. Now, this is August 17th of 2000. Jake Tapper who was at Salon.com at the time wrote this. He's now at ABC. "It's tough to imagine this year's Republican National Convention featuring a prime-time speaker who once said that that 'Zionism is a kind of poisonous weed that is choking Judaism.' Or that he was 'sick and tired of hearing about the Holocaust.' Or that traditional Democratic support for Israel is because of 'the Jewish element in the party ... a kind of glorified form of bribery.' And certainly not if he had ever referred to Jews as 'Hymies' and New York as 'Hymietown.' The Rev. Jesse Jackson, of course, has made all of these comments, and more."

Everything that I have said today about the Reverend Jackson and Al Sharpton has the added benefit of being true. The things being said about me by the Reverend Sharpton and the Reverend Jackson are slanderously false and they know it, and they continue to spread them. Again from the tongue of the Reverend Jackson: "'Zionism is a kind of poisonous weed that is choking Judaism ... sick and tired of hearing about the Holocaust." Traditional Democratic support for Israel is because of "the Jewish element in the party ... a kind of glorified form of bribery,'" and "Hymies" and "Hymietown," and that's Jake Tapper, and I sourced it. "The only thing we love more than seeing a self-righteous politician go up in flames is to see a self-righteous clergyman politician go up in flames." Where is this? This is Blog.WaywardPoliticians.com, Thursday, April 26, 2007.

"In January of 2001, Jackson, a two time presidential candidate, owned up to fathering an illegitimate daughter 20 months prior. Talk about getting some Affirmative Action. Of course Jackson has been married to Jacqueline Lavina Brown Jackson since 1962. The woman Jackson did the deed with worked for his advocacy group the Rainbow-PUSH Coalition. You know, when you name your advocacy group something like that you are just inviting trouble. Anyway, her name is Karin Stanford and their love fest lasted four years. He was paying her $120,000 per year from the coalition but not reporting it on his taxes. "He then paid her $35,000 cash to move to California and, is paying $3,000 a month in child support. That’s a lot of money and what" the blogger says he wants "to know is does this guy even have a job? I don't know what he does for a living and apparently neither does anybody else."

When Rush called for "pioneers" to help the cause of conservativism, was he calling for the KKK? I say hell YEA he was!!!!!! RUSH wants our President whiped off the face of this earth, if that doesn't happen, he'd just as well see America all it's status. RUSH is wrong!

I once turned on the TV and saw Rush Limbaugh commenting on the then-recent election of Carole Mosely-Braun (an African-American) to Congress. "Movin' On Up...." Limbaugh sang. Yes, the theme from the Jeffersons. People didn't complain about his NFL ownership bid because he's a conservative. They recognize that he's a bigot, and they reject him as such. Republicans/Conservatives can do much better than to have Limbaugh as a mouthpiece.

Maybe now this fat bastard will realize the consequences of his words and actions. He can now focus on his job as the Grand Pooba of the Klan.

Jesus said "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone" Before everyone calls Rush Limbaugh a racist and drug addict....examine yourself....Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton have made plenty of racist remarks..even President Obama in his 2 books have said racist remarks and admitted to using drugs often. Since President Obama started running for president and up to now, the word "RACIST" has been thrown at every person who said they would not vote for him, has not supported his healthcare bill and even trys to voice an opinion that is not "Pro-Obama". All it is doing is cheapening the meaning of "RACIST". Are there racists? Yes !!! In every race, country, class and sex. Yes there are racists. But when you throw the word "RACIST" at everything and everyone who you don't like or doesn't agree with you, it devalues the real meaning of the word. People are just ignoring it now. Remember the boy who cried "WOLF" so much that people ignored him when the real wold threatened him? Let's save the word for the real serious situations, and stop just throwing it into the wind hoping it will stick on anything or anyone who we don't like or disagree with.

Rush is from Missouri and thought they would welcome him with open arms. Wrong! He is a big mouth and an embarrassment to the Midwest. He should be an embarrassment to the Republican party, but instead they have ordained him as their king. The NFL knew this guy couldn't keep his radical opinions from seeping into the league. Stick to things you know, like spewing hate on your radio show.

Rush IS a racist. Most blacks don't just throw the racism word around. Sure, a few know nothing but racism as the cause of all society's ills, but they are most definitely in the minority. I ought to know. I AM black, not just taking a wild guess based on what television and propaganda teach me. But only a really stupid blind black would not see that Rush is a racist. Don't believe me? What proof is there that McNabb is coddled by the media because he's black? He regularly gets ROASTED in Philly. He was booed on draft day by 30 idiots orchestrated by a Philly sports radio host. Does that sound like the media doing anything to help a black quarterback succeed to you? So why did Mr cow butt have to open his mouth about McNabb? It was every bit as unnecessary as outrageous. And he did it solely because he likes to start stuff. He's like the little kid that goes around the school yard trying to start fights between other kids by spreading gossip, rumors and lies. He knows what he's doing and he's very savvy in how he stirs the brew of hate. Just look at how divisive he is among the posters on this topic. Segregation mission accomplished... Please don't dare insult our intelligence by suggesting Mr. Limbaugh is a poor innocent victim here. This is not misguided racism claims. This is cold hard fact.

As for the Obama stuff, it has nothing to do so much with not voting for him as why. People have spoken on record that they wouldn't vote for him because he was black. People yelled for him to be killed at rallies (urged on by another "innocent", Sarah Palin), and the comments regularly made about OUR PRESIDENT by the extreme right make Kanye West's comments about George Bush during hurricane Katrina seem absolutely tame by comparison. Obama's Nazi youth, pictures depicting Obama as Hitler? And let me guess... you see nothing wrong with this, right? It's not racism, just good old American free speech, right? Well, telling Rush's fat ass to get lost was good old fashioned American free speech too. It amuses me how people who can be so venomous for their cause can be so thin-skinned when the shoe is on the other foot.
