The race hustlers win again...

News leaked out late last week that Rush Limbaugh was a limited partner in a group being put together to purchase the St. Louis Rams. It makes all kinds of sense - Limbaugh's a Missouri native, a passionate NFL fan and a deep-pocketed businessman.

He's also a conservative. Who speaks energetically three hours a day for public consumption. There are many who react like Pavlov's dogs when Limbaugh's the topic - the mere mention of his name causes them to foam at the mouth. And indulge in the worst kind of casual slander.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell:
"I've said many times before, we're all held to a high standard here," Goodell told reporters, via the New York Times.

"I would not want to see those comments1 coming from people who are in a responsible position in the NFL –- absolutely not."

Apparently, the NFL has no clout with NBC, where Keith Olbermann ("...all thanks to the total mindless, morally bankrupt, knee-jerk, fascistic hatred, without which Michelle Malkin would just be a big mashed-up bag of meat with lipstick on it") is still part of the Sunday Night football show.

Mark Steyn, who occasionally guest hosts on Rush's show, was typically brilliant this morning:
So where are these racist soundbites? Where's the audio? Where's the transcript? Name the year. Heigh-ho, say CNN's Rick Sanchez and the rest of the basement-ratings crowd. Not our problem: It's for Limbaugh to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he's never said it. We're too busy fact-checking anti-Obama jokes to fact-check our own reporting...

Stephen Spruiell takes a quick look at what's acceptable and what's not in the NFL.

And the sad news comes tonight that Limbaugh's almost certainly going to be dropped from the group. Sad, because once again, the rabble-rousers and racial arsonists on the left intimidate others into giving them a trophy. In a just world, the "Reverend" Al Sharpton would be a cloutless joke, and his opinion on any moral topic should be presumed wrong or, at the very least, ignored. In Barack Obama's "post-racial" America, the race pimps and hustlers are still winning the shakedown war. What has the "Reverend" Jesse Jackson done in the last 40 years to make America a better place? Nothing.

And it's sad because we get yet one more example of the flourishing of the double standard which would not be allowed to stand if we had anything like an unbiased, objective media in this country. That Jesse "Hymietown" Jackson is allowed to lecture anyone on race issues or prejudice, and people listen with straight faces, is indicative of a serious societal breakdown somewhere along the way. Once again, we see these guys roll out their protection racket, and people pay off in acquiescence. It's offensive.

1 - The story does not make it clear whether he's talking about real comments here, or the fake comments that the media is propogating...
