UPDATE: Now, Jesse Jackson has chimed in, agreeing with Sharpton. No surprise there. Jackson can't stand to be left out.
Al Sharpton wants the National Football League to block conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh from bidding on the St. Louis Rams.
So, extending this principle to its (il)logical conclusion,
anyone who wants to buy a franchise has to prove that he isn't "divisive." Or make that, anyone who wants to buy anything must not be divisive. That would prevent Sharpton from buying anything, because who is more divisive than this clown.
I suppose Sharpton is referring to this from the AP: "In 2003, Limbaugh worked briefly on ESPN's NFL pregame show. He resigned after saying Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb was overrated because the media wanted to see a black quarterback succeed." True or not, it's the man's opinion.
Kind of reminds me of the 1950s blacklisting. For those who attended public schools and think I'm referring to something racial, here's what blacklisting was: The exclusion of people from jobs because they are communists or communist sympathizers. The left appears to be as good at this game as the right.
