Palm Beach, FL — On the “open line Friday” version of his popular, nationally syndicated radio program, Rush Limbaugh told a caller that it’s completely possible that San Francisco 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick might be involved in both the Tulsa and Charlotte shootings. The caller, a man from Stone Mountain, Georgia who had to be cut-off due to racial epitaphs, was questioning Kaepernick’s loyalty to “America” and implying that he was a Muslim terrorist.
“You see Rush,” said the unidentified called, “how do we know anything about this Kaepernick person. We already know that the nation’s highest office has been infiltrated by a Muslim, but I’m just worried that our nation’s most important sport is being taken down by these Black Live Matters enemies…”
After muting the caller, Rush jumped in.
“Exactly right! You know, they do. They look the other way. They tell us we need to understand the rage and understand this or that and the other thing. It’s a good point. Since you bring that up, I got a sound bite from Obama here that may illustrate what you’re talking about. Grab sound bite number one. [a sound segment plays of President Obama calling for peace]. Look, we need to be careful with this Kaepernick situation and accusations. But you have a point. Liberalism is trying to rot America from the inside out. And I gotta tell you, I don’t know where he was during the Tulsa and Charlotte shootings and neither does anyone else. We deserve to know the truth. But the thing that concerns me is, where was he during the riots? No one can answer that.”
Mr. Limbaugh went on to suggest that many of the out-of-state rioters were paid actors” on the payroll of global elitist “Liberals” like George Soros. And that they could be planning on destabilizing urban centers to make sure that Trump loses the election.
And in what seems more than a coincidence, The Donald Trump for President campaign released a statement today via Twitter that seemed to share Rush Limbaugh’s concern that the NFL has been infiltrated by “black radical” elements.
The NFL did not respond to requests for an interview, but instead released this odd statement praising the United States military.
“The NFL supports our military members who defend the right of free speech in far off lands. The NFL is America in many ways, and we are committed to preserving that tradition. We have no comment on Mr. Kaepernick’s recent actions and encourage the media to reach out to his press manager.”
