Rush Limbaugh Says The NFL Protests Are A Sinister Liberal Plot On Live TV

By Collin Gossel

This Thursday, September 28th, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh was asked to chime in on the current controversy surrounding NFL players who have protested police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem. In typical Limbaugh fashion, he took the ball and ran with it. Though, if this football metaphor were to continue, one might say he kept running right out of the stadium and into the parking lot––where no one could stop him. 

Rush believes this whole controversy is a leftist conspiracy to destroy... the National Football League. In his words:

What does the NFL stand for? Masculinity, strength, toughness. So, what are they doing to it? You go to college campuses now and you’ll find classes on how to take masculinity out of men. It’s actually happening. There are studies and courses in college that do this. It’s patriotic, you’ve got the flag, you’ve got the anthem, you’ve got uniformed military personnel, all the things that the left wants to erase from this country.
