Obama Hastens the End of Football
I’ve had a couple people also e-mail me, friends of mine who said they thought that I was way out on a limb, maybe gone too far when I predicted months ago that the National Football League as we know it is over, it’s only a matter of time. They said, “Rush, you’re talking about the most popular, the most profitable professional sport in America where television earns its lion’s share of revenue and ratings. This time, Rush, I think you’ve overshot the mark.” Now they’re sending me notes saying, “My gosh, I should never, ever doubt you,” because the president’s out there, and in this same interview, let me read what he said to you.
“I think a lot of parents feel like Barack Obama. ‘I’m a big football fan, but I have to tell you, if I had a son,” like Trayvon “I’d have to think long and hard before I let him play football.'” The president of the United States weighing in on this. The president, this is not insignificant. The president now suggesting this game is too dangerous for America’s children, certainly for his son, Trayvon, if he had one. And he said, “And I think that those of us who love the sport are going to have to wrestle with the fact that it will probably change gradually to try to reduce some of the violence.”
Violence! Not contact. Not hard hitting. Violence. Yes.
The president said, “And I think that those of us who love the sport are going to have to wrestle with the fact that it will probably change gradually to try to reduce some of the violence. In some cases, that may make it a little bit less exciting, but it will be a whole lot better for the players, and those of us who are fans maybe won’t have to examine our consciences quite as much,” and thereby signaled the line of attack. It’s the same line of attack that was used for global warming, to guilt you, your guilty conscience, you’re destroying the planet. That’s why you gotta support bigger government, higher taxes, buy small little battery-powered cars and all the rest of it.
So now, they’re gonna start working on this, you watch a football game and you’re gonna have a guilty conscience. You know why? Because you’re gonna be sitting there watching football and you’re gonna be loving it. But what are you loving? Maiming, injury, concussion, life changing injuries to the point that the players you’re watching today might be committing suicide in a few short years, and it’s all being done for your blood lust, it’s all being done for your bloodthirstiness.
