On Rush And The St Louis Rams

Share Button

I was listening to Hugh Hewitt yesterday and heard him mention that there were some pseudo quotes attributed to Rush, but i didn’t know what they were.These are the pseudo-quotes I think he was talking about:

“I mean, let’s face it, we didn’t have slavery in this country for over 100 years because it was a bad thing. Quite the opposite: slavery built the South. I’m not saying we should bring it back; I’m just saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after dark.”


“You know who deserves a posthumous Medal of Honor? James Earl Ray. We miss you, James. Godspeed”

From what I can tell, the quotes are lifted from a book published in 2006 called “The 100 People You Really Should Hate” or something like that. Rush says he never said those phrases, and I take him at his word. So lets drop the issue of these quotes and move to something Hugh said. Hugh went on to call Rodger Goodell a moron and liberal. I don’t know if Goodell is a liberal or not, but I do know he’s not a moron. Goodell has done more to put players on notice that bad behavior will not be tolerated than any other major sport commissioner. Google Goodell / PacMan Jones or Chris Henry for an example. Read more »
