This is a really disturbing incident. Rush was part of a team that wanted to buy an NFL team. Apparently because of his political views, people set out to block that purchase. Since there was no legitimate reason to block the sale, they created a racially tinted attack based on completely unsourced (read fabricated) comments that they said Rush has said. Sadly, It worked.
Video embedded below.
"In a candid moment during today's Al Sharpton radio show (probably not intended for the rest of us to hear), Oben admitted that Rush's political views regarding Obama were key to the opposition that appears to have derailed his bid to purchase the St Louis Rams."
Via Glenn Reynolds who opines; "IF YOUR RIGHT TO BUY THIS SORT OF THING DEPENDS ON YOUR POLITICS, then why expect that health care will be any different?".
