Al Sharpton Revels In Obamist Victory Over NFL, Limbaugh
Al Sharpton Pleased To See Partisan Takeover Of NFL
*** UPDATED WITH SECOND CLIP: SHARPTON TAUNTS RUSH, CALLS HIM 'DELUSIONAL' ***
*** WHO FUNDS SHARPTON? CORPORATE AMERICA ***
Using today's radio program to declare victory over Rush Limbaugh in the battle for partisan control of the National Football League, the Reverend Al Sharpton couldn't contain his glee after the talk titan's bid was thwarted.
The result means ideological control over the NFL (based primarily on support for Obama) and a likely de facto ban on future team ownership by conservatives.
Here's the caught-on-tape reaction:
SHARPTON (4:11): Well, I’m sure as many of you have heard that yesterday after going off the air, Rush Limbaugh who we had started our campaign on Monday was withdrawn by those trying to buy the St. Louis Rams.
His name withdrawn, he is effectively out of it as we wanted. He’s bellyaching and he’s making all kinds of attacks on National Action Network and I, but that’s the screeching of the defeated. Defeated not by me, not by National Action Network, not by other civil rights groups other left or other liberals.
Defeated by his own words that he said against NFL Players and probably to his surprise the NFL Players stood up and said you cannot disparage us and want to be an owner in our world. It’s just that simple.
Later, in Sharpton's third hour, he followed up by taunting Limbaugh and calling him "delusional":
SHARPTON (12:15) (mocking tone): You know I’m told now through e-mails that Mr. Limbaugh now is saying that this is a conspiracy with the President Obama and me and George Soros and everyone.
I really think he’s having delusions Britney I mean (Brittany Sharpton giggling in the background) his partners dropped him I mean what is he talking about? They withdrew his name, he was exposed for what he said and now the whole government and me an everybody’s conspired against him? I mean you know this is he’s not well.
BRITTANY SHARPTON: He’s way too old to be crying like a baby. Ha ha ha.
SHARPTON: Yeah, this is making less and less sense. (Britney Sharpton continued giggling in the background)
