Limbaugh Predicts NFL Touchdown Celebrations Will Become American Flag Protests

RUSH: We have Trent in Dallas. Great to have you, Trent. How you doing?

CALLER: I’m great, Rush. Thank you. How are you?

RUSH: Very well, sir. I’m glad you called. I like the subject that you have here.

CALLER: Well, thank you, and I’m very proud to be on with you. With regard to the NFL players’ protests, if the trend continues and the networks simply choose not to broadcast the images of the players kneeling for the national anthem, how long before the players and those that advocate for their position begin to specifically call out the networks as siding with Trump and being a part of the systematic oppression?

RUSH: That’s a good question. Let me tackle this because last night there was a football game in Charlotte. It was the Carolina Panthers hosting the Eagles of Philadelphia. The Panthers all stood. Two players for the Eagles kneeled or linked arms and gave a black power salute, I think. But nobody saw it ’cause it wasn’t televised. CBS/NFL Network didn’t televise the anthem last night. I wonder why that might be? It’s obviously the league has gotten together with its so-called broadcast partners and said, “Hey, you know what?

“The solution here, at least immediate, is don’t televise it.” Trent, if this keeps up, here’s what… I don’t… The player may lodge a complaint about it, via the union or whatever, individual players. But that’s not what they’ll do. What they will do is make the American flag somehow part of a touchdown celebration and do something with it where everybody’s watching. It won’t take them long to figure out that if the anthem’s not televised, that they’ve gotta do something where they know it is — and after touchdowns is always televised and always replayed. So if a protest becomes part of a touchdown celebration, everybody will see it.
