Kevin Jackson – The Black Sphere

Y’all know how much I love AlfonZO Rachel. He’s been so popular that PJTV signed him up several months ago.
My new favorite conservative blogger who happens to be black is Kevin Jackson.

I totally agree with his take on this latest Rush Limbaugh – NFL smear.

Read the whole thing (not long)

Limbaugh represents all the things that the Left despises. First he is a Conservative and a Republican, so this by definition is a Capitalist. The Left hates Capitalists. You can further confirm that Limbaugh is a Capitalist, because he wants to BUY the Rams, and not have the government GIVE him the Rams, in the form of a bailout, reparations, or otherwise. He prefers to buy low and sell high, which implies improving the team.

A man who has built an empire, and arguably the most successful radio talk show network ever shows interest in your team, and the black players want to paint him as a racist—as if they could actually spot one. Limbaugh is a winner, pure and simple, and an Old School winner at that. Limbaugh has more in common with those black athletes than any owner for which they have played or the white racist Democrats who are always so ready to speak on behalf of blacks.

The black players in the league should take a page from The Dixie Chicks…shut up and play!

  1. Read the whole thing. I’m not sure why you needed to point out that he’s black, but I’ll leave that aside. Let’s do this thing!

    Why all the hoopla over Limbaugh wanting to buy part of the Rams? It is based mainly on two things. First, he is a Conservative Republican. And because of his politics, Limbaugh is being attacked, one Democrat saying that Limbaugh can’t wait to “own a team of black slaves.” There it is…slavery! Democrats having the nerve to bring up slavery…their institution!

    I always find the irony funny when the Left demonizes Republicans, they always choose things of which THEY are guilty. For the record, Republicans FREED the slaves that Democrats OWNED. But the Left doesn’t care about the facts, as they like keeping silly Negros stupid! It’s just make them both feel good.

    Hehe, yeah, and Bob Byrd used to be the head whatever in the KKK. NEWSFLASH: The parties re-aligned. Around the mid to late sixties (I’m not sure what may have precipitated it) southern Democrats were forced to make a decision. Change to the party that now shared their values of, err, “state’s rights”, or stick with those evil northern progressives that attacked them during the War of “Northern Aggression”. Byrd chose those pesky Yankees, Thurmond and Helms went the other way. I know it’s comforting to think that Fredrick Douglass would be a Republican if he were alive today, but my guess (and it’s only a guess) is that he would probably be the butt of many of Limbaugh’s sketches. BTW, Mr. Jackson said ther outrage was based on “two things”. Where’s the second one?

    Speaking of silly Negros, the black players on the Ram say they won’t play for Rush Limbaugh, should Limbaugh buy the team. With the Rams 0-fer record, I contend the black players are not playing for the current owner either.

    Hehe, I get why you pointed out that he’s black. I will admit, that’s a good line.

    Black players have no clue about the politics of their current owners, yet they are happy to accept their paychecks. I have worked for many companies, and in the interview process, I never asked, “Is the owner of the company a racist?” How would I know, unless he declared himself or herself a Democrat?! Moreover, even if the company owner was a racist, I don’t care! Just make sure my check clears!

    True. I don’t know what party the president of my company belongs to, and I don’t really care. If he started making gay jokes at the company picnic, I might, but he hasn’t. He has better sense than that.

    Next, black players are supposedly angry with a comment Limbaugh made about McNabb years ago, when Limbaugh implied that if McNabb were not black, there would have been little discussion of his abilities as a quarterback. Limbaugh opined that McNabb was an average quarterback, unworthy of the big deal being made about him at the time. Nothing racist there; just an observation, and one I and likely millions of other football aficionados—black and white—agreed with.

    I’m left to assume this is the second point he refered to in his opening graf, and yeah, it was a really REALLY dumb thing to say, but racist? It obviously wasn’t as bad as when Rush said that watching an NFL game was like watching the Bloods and the Crips without weapons, or how a black caller should take the “bone out his nose”, or that whole Barack the Magic Negro thing. I guess it’s in the mind of the beholder.

    Limbaugh went on to say that the NFL needed a black quarterback darling, which is why McNabb got press he got. This may or may not be true, but was the opinion of Limbaugh. The comment was in no way racist, unless you suffer from a victim mentality—or if you are a race-baiting Liberal, i.e. a racist.

    Hmmmm, I see race baiting in that graf. Let’s see, using race to provoke a reaction… I know I see it, I just can’t quite figure it out…

    The comment was meant to be thought-provoking, and it was. In this time of political correctness, it was an interesting point to ponder. There are no black owners in the NFL, and the NFL had just begun addressing the issue of black coaches, after years of “black coach oppression.” Prior to the coaching issues, there was the black quarterback issue. It has been a theory that the NFL did not want black quarterbacks, since the position of quarterback implied leadership of the team. The guy running the show. The NFL back in the day said openly that there were no qualified blacks to be NFL quarterbacks, and it was not a conspiracy. So black quarterbacks who led their teams to national championship were good enough for college, but were better receivers or kick-off returners in the pros? Socialist please!

    Limbaugh shined the light on the idea that the NFL may be practicing that age old Democrat practice of subterfuge, when he asked people to look at the bigger picture, ergo McNabb was the “NFL darling!”

    Oh, I get it. The NFC Championship games were a fluke. And the NFL was racist, and Rush was really standing up for the black man. Also. Socialism. Got it.

    If Bill Clinton had said it, it would not have been negative news. The comment would have been considered ground-breaking, and Clinton a hero. A great Democrat looking out for the common “colored man,” and protector the lowly Negro…just like all those Southern Democrats protected blacks in the past!

    I see. If Clinton had said McNabb was was overrated because he was black he would have been hailed as hero. That’s the sort of logic that has put the modern conservative movement in the place it is today.

    However because Limbaugh who said it, Liberals pulled out their race cards, en masse, and the public lynching of Limbaugh began in earnest. He was ceremoniously fired, and order was restored to Bizarro World.

    Fine. I admit it. I’m lost. If… she… weighs… the same… as a duck…

    Black players, most of whom are from poor backgrounds want to suddenly take a stand on whom they are willing to be owned by. Black players are content with Democrat “massas,” but not with anybody else?

    Again, please look up the term “Southern Strategy”.

    Here’s the wrap:

    Thank G-d. Mo said this was short.

    Ah, I get it. We on the left are filthy socialists on welfare. That’s the point of the article. How can I argue with such brilliance? Uh, conservatives want six year olds to work in sweat shops and for the homeless to be fed to the hungry. Booyakasha!

    A man who has built an empire, and arguably the most successful radio talk show network ever shows interest in your team, and the black players want to paint him as a racist—as if they could actually spot one. Limbaugh is a winner, pure and simple, and an Old School winner at that. Limbaugh has more in common with those black athletes than any owner for which they have played or the white racist Democrats who are always so ready to speak on behalf of blacks.

    I’ll grant that he’s a winner and a great radio host, and he and the players have lots of money. Best argument so far. As for the white racist Dems speaking for blacks. Either 90% of blacks are Dem because they think we are more on their side, or because they are ignorant. I’ll let you be the judge of which of those options you think is the reality.

    The black players in the league should take a page from The Dixie Chicks…shut up and play!

    No. In fact, fuck you! The last time I checked everybody gets to say what they think, regardless of occupation. Rush can do his “impression” of Jesse Jackson, the players can say they don’t want to work for him and the owners can vote on who they care about more. Please read the First Amendment.

    That’s my rant!

    Good for you. My head hurts now.

  2. I know it rankles everyone else, but that’s about the best fisking I can remember seeing on here. Well done.

  3. Limbaugh represents all the things that the Left despises. First he is a Conservative and a Republican, so this by definition is a Capitalist. The Left hates Capitalists.

    Or it could simply be that the capitalist owners of the NFL franchise didn’t want to sell to someone who would damage their brand.

    In the middle of all the ranting, it should probably be pointed out that Limbaugh wasn’t refused by “The Left” or by government – his own partners in the bid kicked him out, due to pressure from the other capitalist owners, administrators and players on the NFL.

    Call the waaaaaaaahmbulance.

  4. “but that’s about the best fisking I can remember seeing on here.”

    If this is true I can go back to ignoring this site, because I thought it was pretty lame and, in several cases, wildly inaccurate, ignorant, and bigoted.

    Bye.

  5. “I’m left to assume this is the second point he refered to in his opening graf, and yeah, it was a really REALLY dumb thing to say, but racist? It obviously wasn’t as bad as when Rush said that watching an NFL game was like watching the Bloods and the Crips without weapons, or how a black caller should take the “bone out his nose”, or that whole Barack the Magic Negro thing. I guess it’s in the mind of the beholder.”

    Nitpicking, but Barack the Magic Negro was not original Limbaugh. It was an LA Times Columnist who posed the idea that some individuals would vote for Mr. Obama out of a sense of guilt transference from past generations.

    I can certainly see how the Bloods and Crips comments would offend, but I don’t believe Limbaugh is actually a racist anymore than I believe all members of the Bloods and the Crips were all from one race. Granted I was not a member of either group, so I can’t attest to that personally. (I was in a lesser known yet equally powerful crew known simply as ‘the marching band’ and my weapon of choice was a ProMark DC10.)

    Like it or not, Limbaugh is a master entertainer who tweaks crowds by saying exactly what is on his mind in a manner in which he can be held accountable for only one thing – his actual words and their meaning according to what he thinks, not the audience’s interpretation of his words or his motives…

    What I find irritating is the way the press and public figures take what the media says at face value and espouses illegitimate quotes as virtual fact. Please, people, do some homework. Just because Wiki says so, don’t believe it… I can’t wait to see if there are apologies and lawsuits coming out of this.

    Limbaugh also acknowledged that his partners kicked him out – though his interpretation was that the pressure appeared to be coming from some fringe individuals who are heading the upcoming union negotiations for the players. I find that absolutely shocking if true. Next thing you know he will be asserting that Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are those fringe individuals.. Wait a minute…

    • As someone who in my younger conservative days listened to Rush more often than I’d like to admit, I honestly don’t think he is a racist. He does however know his audience, a large portion of which is white and thinks that minorities are either taking their jobs or their country away from them, and like Pat Buchanan and Michael Savage he knows exactly how to get them riled up. Once in a while he has gone too far, but he’s the one who made tons of money playing that game, and now he needs to accept the consequences. Ironically, I’m sure this fiasco has been a great boost for his ratings.

  6. The magic negro goes further back than that. It started as a cinematic and literary criticism (popularized by spike lee in 2001) of authors like stephen king who would create saintly black characters that step into the story and rescue hapless whites. often they die as a result. Think the Cook in the Shining or the Morgan Freeman character in Shawshank.

    It’s a legitimate complaint and there is nothing wrong with using it.

  7. When I read DFV’s comment I thought it said “fisting,” then a quick google search set me straight. For a minute I thought DFV was cheerleading Andre doing something disagreeable to some black guy. Uh, never mind. It was funny the first time I read it. (:

  8. I know it rankles everyone else, but that’s about the best fisking I can remember seeing on here. Well done.

    Not Me. It was pretty masterful.

  9. Or it could simply be that the capitalist owners of the NFL franchise didn’t want to sell to someone who would damage their brand.

    Sometimes a blind squirrel…

  10. A few Frederick Douglas quotes. He would have puked at the policies and plantation politics of the Democratic party. And the Sharpton, Wrights and Jacksons would be tearing him down at every opportunity.

    “People might not get all they work for in this world, but they must certainly work for all they get.”

    “In regard to the colored people, there is always more that is benevolent, I perceive, than just, manifested towards us. What I ask for the negro is not benevolence, not pity, not sympathy, but simply justice. The American people have always been anxious to know what they shall do with us… I have had but one answer from the beginning. Do nothing with us! Your doing with us has already played the mischief with us. Do nothing with us! If the apples will not remain on the tree of their own strength, if they are worm-eaten at the core, if they are early ripe and disposed to fall, let them fall! … And if the negro cannot stand on his own legs, let him fall also. All I ask is, give him a chance to stand on his own legs! Let him alone! … your interference is doing him positive injury.”

    “I am a Republican, a black, dyed in the wool Republican, and I never intend to belong to any other party than the party of freedom and progress.”

    In the end, he was a fascinating, driven and forceful man that doesn’t easily fit into the modern political and ideological definitions of our time. But if you think he’d be cheerleading lecherous liberalism and the devastating collapse of the black community after forty years of the welfare state you are sadly mistaken.

  11. And a quick reminder for Andre and PGW specifically, but everyone else as well. If a comment is over four or maybe five paragraphs it should probably be a stand alone post. Too many times ‘good stuff’ is buried in the comments section of someone elses post. Reference the other original post but create your own. Not a hard and fast rule, but a general guideline that one should follow.

  12. DFV said: “I know it rankles everyone else, but that’s about the best fisking I can remember seeing on here. Well done.”

    Sorry to both you and Andre but the Beast doesn’t see it. Unfamiliar as he is with this variant of rhetorical blood sport, he nevertheless senses that a point-by-point rebuttal should include some actual counter-arguments, not just the usual trollish tactic of heaping mockery on arguments you disagree with.

    The Beast also agrees with Dave that this sort of thing deserves a post of its own.

    It’s saturday, cold as hell, too windy to flyfish so stand by…

  13. No offense to anyone, but I wasn’t overly impressed either. Though I am happy to see Andre peeking in from time to time. He should stop by more often.

  14. Oh worry not, gentlemen. It couldn’t possibly offend me in the least that you don’t share my opinion of a subjective matter. After all, if you’ll recall, I had already announced what all of your opinions would be before you got around to posting them yourselves. Confirmation that my assessment of your predictability was correct could hardly hurt my feelings.

  15. I saw no rankle-ness, but according to Phooey I am easily confused.
