From the August 12 edition of Premiere Radio Networks' The Rush Limbaugh Show:
RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): Last year before a game St. Louis Rams, a bunch of defensive backs, defensive players during player introductions came out, hands up don't shoot. Remember that? Hands up don't [shoot] -- a lie. There was no hands up don't shoot in Ferguson, there's the hometown team in the St. Louis Rams, those guys were not disciplined, those players were, because it was freedom of speech. I'll tell you why the Cowboys are not allowed to wear that decal. This is so easy, I shouldn't have to be the one to say this. You can't figure this out? Are you kidding me?
The Dallas Cowboys want to put a decal, it's -- by the way it's not provocative, it's a circle. And it's got some designation of honor, it, five cops. It honors five cops who died. It doesn't honor anybody else. It honors the five cops who died. Well, you don't think some left-wing activist groups could have a big problem with that and think “you know what, we're going to have to stir up some trouble here. They're honoring the cops cops, what about us?” That's what NFL is afraid of. They're afraid of Black Lives Matter. “What do you mean honoring the cops, the cops are the problem.” Remember, that's the dogma of the left wing, the cops are the problem.
Look at the DOJ. They just had to take over the Baltimore Police Department because the cop department there is what? Racist, and incompetent, even though the cops were totally exonerated in the Freddie Gray case, here comes Loretta Lynch and Barack Obama riding in on whatever they ride in on taking over the Baltimore police like they took over Ferguson, and twenty-five or -six other city police departments on the basis that they're what? Corrupt, that they're racist, that they're unfair. Here comes the Dallas Cowboys wanting to honor cops, uh, uh, uh, did -- no. I think the NFL looks at that as like lighting a match. That's what I think. So they're not going to provoke anybody.
