“Rush Limbaugh Is A Racist” Petition

Our friends at Brave New Films don’t mince words:

Professional sports has always served to unite Americans across class, creed and race. Now Rush Limbaugh, whose career is driven by dividing Americans precisely along those lines, wants to buy an NFL football team.

Limbaugh is a racist and a chauvinist. His values are diametrically opposed to the traditions the NFL stands for. Limbaugh will poison professional football as he has poisoned the culture of American political discourse.

We stand with former and current NFL players in urging the league to reject Limbaugh’s ownership bid. Sports fans deserve better.

You can sign their petition here, and check out the video they made:

    If you didn't allow racists and sexists to own professional sports teams, I don't think you'd have any teams … has Brave New Films ever looked at the history and bios of sports team owners?

    If they are trying to eliminate professional sports, then that's something different … it does annoy me how tax dollars are always used to fund stadium building for what should be a private enterprise.

    I think there are other things to get worked up about Brave New Films. Think you missed the ball on this one.

    Good point Ralph. Pro sports has a long history of wealthy old white men running the show. And building new stadiums is nothing more than an ongoing swindle of tax dollars. Nothing new here.

    This is just Rush trying to boost his ratings.
