Rush gets fooled
Haven't been listening to Rush lately, and never pay any attention to Sport, but this business of Rush trying to buy a football team is interesting.
Rather surprisingly, Rush doesn't understand the American class structure. He seems to believe his own meritocratic nonsense.
Nixon tried to play in the big leagues of politics using secret tapes and dirty tricks, exactly following the successful tactics of FDR, JFK and LBJ .... only to find that he couldn't get away with it. Rush is trying to play in the big leagues of the Sport Industry, only to find that he can't buy his way into the club.
Money brings power, and the office of the Presidency brings power, but neither money nor high office will give you total freedom. Only an aristocrat can do and say absolutely anything with absolute impunity. And in modern America, only three groups have aristocratic status: Authentic African-Americans, Authentic Homosexuals, and Kennedys. It's not enough to be black, as Clarence Thomas learned; and it's not enough to be homosexual, as Larry Craig already learned and Rush has now learned.
Before WW2 we didn't have so many illusions about our class structure. Common sense prevailed, discrimination was honest, and people knew in advance which clubs they couldn't enter. When you know which doors are open and which are closed, you don't waste time and emotional energy banging your head on locked doors.
Since WW2, Leninist propaganda has corrupted all of our institutions, planting the false guarantee of equality, the viciously fraudulent myth that "you can do anything if you work hard enough". This does not guarantee equality, it only guarantees frustration and hostility between classes and groups. As Lenin fully intended.
