The next segment tonight races in the NFL in Rush Limbaugh as you may know the radio star has expressed interest in buying into the St.
Louis Rams football team well.
That's causing all kinds of fear and loathing.
On Monday Detroit news sports writer drew sharp appeared on the fact.
This is the guy when you look at the litany of and they basically are sound bites that are you know clearly racially -- they'll give me give an example of that I don't know really well we're gonna let NAACP there's a -- that he made up in NAACP.
Saying that they should practice robberies slobbering Lou liquor store okay -- we we Trace that we Trace that N double AC comment we cannot find.
Anywhere anywhere where -- when mommy to come.
Yeah well we've got no denials from Limbaugh -- people -- -- and we look I don't care what denial as an act we have the best research staff.
In the business the best there is nobody better -- researching in the fact we can finally see that that sound -- we can't find any evidence of it.
The comment that he said as well about that slavery had its merits -- we can't find that I get -- we can't find it it doesn't exist.
So look I don't think the other things were legitimate and I could be wrong if somebody came -- with the NAACP or again boy this slavery comment I'll come on tomorrow.
My wealth of -- nobody has produced the alleged racially offensive soundbites and now mr.
Is fighting back.
If people are trying to destroy your reputation and your credibility your wife and your career by -- tagging you as a racist.
Then you have to stand up on them like that you know -- -- in the process.
Behind the -- -- Working to.
Get apologies amber attractions.
With the force of legal action against every journalist.
Who has published these entirely fabricated quotes about me slavery and James Earl Ray.
I never -- them.
Now exactly what Limbaugh's legal actions are will be explored in our next segment.
Not one who has been attacked by people using false racial -- I know this is a very vicious game.
Once again NBC news is taking the lead on Limbaugh.
Guys -- -- and -- -- a great bond film was with -- cutter was the bad guy Mr.
I did win the NH and the big CO2 -- -- basically blew up I have to tell you Rush -- is beginning to -- Marmara like Mr.
And at some point somebody's gonna -- -- CO2 -- into his head he's gonna explode like a giant blimp.
I -- -- -- idea of the reasons are plantation Granger dancing in his head as we speak.
Yes it doesn't make you a racist to want to own a team.
-- but it does come up with all -- history question.
It is how position over these players who make millions of dollars in.
And doesn't this seem to be over done.
So why if a radio guy wants to invest in the football team unless the investor has a proven anti social disposition.
He should not be denied an opportunity.
This is 1984.
Type -- ladies and gentlemen fought police posture.
Listen to the owner of the Indianapolis Colts.
I've only mad rush wants.
And we had a good conversation but at the same time when I see some the comments have been said.
There's just too insensitive.
Two incendiary and I you know personally I would have to.
-- -- -- -- -- But what -- As is mr.
hearsay referring to.
Here's the NFL commissioner.
The comments that do rush made specifically about Donovan.
I disagree was very strong.
And that's it's it's a polarizing comments we don't think reflect accurately on the NFL reporters.
And I don't obviously do not believe that those comments.
And -- divisive.
Right that's true the comment about Donovan McNabb.
Saying he is overrated because some sports people want black quarterbacks to succeed.
It is divisive and provocative it hit it but you can't assign.
A racist label to that comment.
And then institute a ban.
On an investor.
You can't unless your congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee.
I just simply ask both owners to do the right thing.
Have a criteria as standard a bottom line of integrity it's not all about the dollar.
9 AM still invited not going to be able to buy into the NF up on any group he's with his already back in a way.
I don't think that's fair.
You may disagree.
However there's something unsettling about this whole thing as punishing speech even when provocative.
Is not what America's all about.
