Geraldo and Rush Limbaugh

Geraldo, on his show, was gleefully talking about Rush Limbaugh being removed from the group wanting to purchase the St. Louis Rams. He stated Rush’s comments were too divisive that the group no longer wanted him. He had on his show Mike Huckabee and Al Sharpton, but did not have Rush on the show, nor did he say he tried to contact him for his comments on the subject.

Sharpton said he was going to sue Rush Limbaugh for comments he made in an op-ed piece regarding Sharpton playing a role in the 1991 Crown Heights riot and the 1995 Freddie’s Fashion Mart riot. Sharpton denied any involvement in the incidents and Geraldo did not question him further.

Huckabee joked that he and Al should try to get a team.

Geraldo then brought on Trent Lott the former Majority Leader of the Senate for his opinion on the subject. Perhaps he thought Trent could sort of speak for Rush because of what happened to him. There was a 100th birthday party for Senator Strom Thurmond that Trent Lott attended and he made the following statement:

"I want to say this about my state: When Strom Thurmond ran for president, we voted for him. We're proud of it. And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn't have had all these problems over all these years, either."

Jesse Jackson and Al Gore said the comment was racist and Jackson called for Lott’s resignation and Gore called for his censure. He was accused of being a racist because Strom Thurmond ran as a segregationist. Even though Trent would have been 7 years old when Thurmond ran for the Presidency and he might not have known that Thurmond ran as a segregationist. I believe Obama’s excuse regarding Bill Ayers was he was only nine years old when Ayers was doing his terrorist acts.

Lott was trying to be a nice guy and say kind things about Thurmond who was retiring from the Senate. Lott apologized stating "Nothing could be further from the truth, and I apologize to anyone who was offended by my statement." Nevertheless, Trent Lott was pressured to resign as Majority Leader of the Senate on December 20, 2002.

Trent Lott believed Rush should have been able to participate in the purchase of the Rams. However, he stated his comments about Donovan McNabb were divisive and he probably should not have said them. Trent, the comments he made about McNabb were true; the media were hyping him just as they have done for Obama.

Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, the race hustling extortionists, began to put pressure on Dave Checketts who could not take the pressure and forced Rush out of the group.

Jackson and Sharpton pressured Lott to resign as Majority Leader of the Senate, pressured Don Imus to be fired and now pressured Checketts from dropping Limbaugh from the group. Not to mention the numerous corporations that pays them to keep from being harassed and picketed by their groups.

They call themselves Reverends but where is their church? What seminary or school did they go to become Reverends? I believe they do it for tax-exempt status. Sharpton and Jackson are the ones that are divisive and do nothing but exacerbate the problem of race relations in this country. Geraldo, O’Reilley and other news shows lend credence to these two charlatans by giving them a forum to speak. When are people and corporations going to wake up and stop giving in to the Sharpton’s and Jackson’s of the world?

Geraldo says that 68% of the NFL is African-American. I believe Geraldo is in favor of affirmative action, therefore since blacks make up 12% of the population the NFL should reduce the number of black players to reflect the population.

Geraldo, I believe you call yourself a journalist, so why didn’t you get both sides of the story? Why did you not seek a comment from Rush? Could it be that you did not ask for Rush’s side of the story because you are an Obamamaniac and Rush strongly opposes his Marxists policies? Could it be that you are for open borders and amnesty regarding illegal immigrants and Rush, like so many other Americans, believe in legal immigration, but oppose amnesty and want the illegal immigrants to be deported? Geraldo, how can you be in favor of illegal immigrants being in this country when it is akin to slavery?
