Straight No Chaser: Steele, Rush, and Sports

DENVER — Just as it’s a given Al Davis really runs the Oaktown Raiders . . . Rush Limbaugh runs the Republican Party.

Tom Cable may be the Raiders head coach, but it’s meaningless in the larger scope of things. It’s Al’s team, always has been, and appears it will be till Al’s dead and buried.

Despite growing up in Southern Cal, I’ve always been a Oaktown Raider Fan. From Daryle Lamonica (“The Mad Bomber”), George Atkinson, University of Mars Alumnus Otis Sistrunk to the Marcus Allen era and today’s version of Raiders which more resemble Disney’s G-rated Pirates of The Caribbean Disneyland ride, I’ve always bled silver n’ Black.

But today we need a new leader with a new direction.

Michael Steele may very well be the head of the Republican National Committee, but if you want me to tell it like it really is, the undisputed leader of the Angry White Male’s party, undeniably the fat-cat whom the run-of-the-mill redneck takes his marching orders from is the angry, elitist, insecure, racist and sexist Rush Limbaugh.

He speaks to, and for White America, make no mistake about it.

Need we remember, the GOP does not like Black people, even Uncle Toms. Rush took uncountable head shots at Colin Powell, the model Negro, because the Republican company man – did not hate black people enough.

Rush and slope-head Sean Connity questioned his conservatism endlessly, and after Powell pulled the knife out of his back, and stepped up to support Obama . .

The GOP establishment is merely pimping and exploiting his Black ass for PR purposes. Can you say “window dressing?” Try willing and wanting “token.”

The deeper question here is . . . who want’s to be a puppet?

How can the Cable man take a head coaching position in which the owner keeps you in a bent over position? How can a take charge kinda-guy, a leader of men . . . allow themselves to be dictated to by a gridiron relic, a dictator from an era long gone.

What kind of man want’s this type of . . . fake, artificial, pretend type of power?

Mr. Steele, a life long Black Republican, who apparently has always placed his wallet before his conscience, his personal prosperity over the welfare of people who look just like his mother . . .

This man apparently does crave that form of make-believe clout – was recently on CNN with DL Hughley and when confronted with the GOP plantation overseer’s stern belief – “I hope he fails” countered with “Rush Limbaugh is an entertainer.

Limbaugh, his whole thing is entertainment. Yes, it’s incendiary. Yes, it’s ugly.

24 hours later, if that, Stepin Fetchit confirmed he was . . . Stephin Fetchit, with top-hat in-hand, little white gloves and cane – Steele recanted, retreated, rescinded and retracted both his statement and his penis.

“My intent was not to go after Rush – I have enormous respect for Rush Limbaugh. I was maybe a little bit inarticulate…There was no attempt on my part to diminish his voice or his leadership.”

Can you believe that, a Negro intellectual offering up “I was maybe a bit inarticulate“, this cat ought to be known as the Black Gumby for his . . . verbal flexibility.

That statement is a concession, understanding how White folks are so quick to praise a Black person as articulate, he was giving up his ability, allowing it to be questioned. Steele was offering his own credibility placing it on the chopping block in order to placate and pacify a mob of angry White folks.

Gee, Mike has his head so far up Rush’s ass, if Rush passes gas . . . he’ll blow Steele’s clean shaven bald-head . . . clean off.

Rush put his Black boy back in line the next opportunity he sat his drug addicted, inflated deaf-ass back in front of that Golden Mic; “The Republican National Committee and Michael Steele need a little leadership … we’re going to have to drag them kicking and screaming back to our core.”

Core, does he mean kore, as in K, as in KKK. That’s the rank n’ file redneck base Rush is referring to. The unwashed working class white masses, who slit their own throats by voting Republican because they hope one day they will no longer be viewed as White Trash, but instead able to purchase a larger truck, a Redneck Cadillac, move into a good neighborhood, translation, a vastly all White gated sub-division.

Any credibility this buffoon might have garnered leading up to and including his interview with Hughley . . . is long gone. Lost, like Gilligan, the Skipper, the professor . . ..

Besides being in hot, hot water with the Klan core of the GOP for insulting Rush, this sell-out has to contend with a wave of anger mounting with-in the Neo-Con base because Steele, during the interview, allowed Hughley to get away with the truth; “the GOP convention looked just like a Nazi Germany”.

Steele did not defend nor viciously lash back at Hughley and Chuck D, who was also a guest when this accurate observation was made. For this betrayal of Master, the Republicans are going to lynch this lonely lost Black man.

Mutiny, insubornation, open-defiance. This is what Rush and the Republicans are engaged in, undermining the efforts of this president to alter the course of the empire, save the crumbling empire.

Tagging the new resident of the White House as – “Barrack . . . the magic negro” is not constructive criticism, it does not elevated the dialog, it drags it down in the gutter.

Now, Rush does not merely resemble a pig, or rather a hog, he has the mentality of one, which means one should seldom wrestle in the political mud and slop with him, because all you do is get filthy . . . . while the pig loves it.
