RUSH: We’re gonna start with Chris in Philadelphia. I’m glad you called, sir. Great to have you here.
CALLER: Thank you, Rush.
RUSH: Have at it.
CALLER: I have a simple point, and I’ll try to put it as succinctly as I can. We know Mr. Peterson, Adrian Peterson has a child, at least two, and maybe others. My point is, with him suspended, with him losing his sponsorships and maybe suffering a loss of his career, who’s going to support these children? Haven’t they suffered and aren’t they going to suffer again?
RUSH: So let me reverse the question on you. Are you suggesting that maybe we should look the other way at his form of discipline in exchange for the kids and his family being set economically?
CALLER: No. What I’m suggesting is that people think about the ramifications of what they’re doing —
RUSH: Oh, come on.
CALLER: — before we have these knee-jerk reactions.
RUSH: That isn’t gonna happen. You’re right, don’t misunderstand. That isn’t gonna happen. Look, what is the saying, the train’s left the station on this. Adrian Peterson may not know it yet, but he may never play in the NFL again. Ditto, Ray Rice. I mean, the die is cast here. These guys are now the embodiment of evil, because these guys represent, they are symbols of a political agenda that has been given a big bunch of juice here with these incidents.
