RUSH: I want you to hear this, too. Rachel Nichols, used to be at ESPN, is now over at CNN, and last night on CNN’s Special Report coverage — anything that’s not coverage of the missing Malaysian airlines is a Special Report at CNN. They’re doing a Special Report on NBA commissioner Adam Silver banning Donald Sterling for life. Oh, and looky here. The anchor happens to be Mr. Black Hole. I didn’t know that. Don Lemon speaking with CNN’s Unguarded — that’s the name of her show, I guess — host Rachel Nichols about the ban of Sterling. And Don Lemon said, “Rachel, other owners around the league, do they need to pay attention, maybe change their behavior a little bit, Rachel?”
NICHOLS: Yeah. I mean, in the NBA you have an owner in Orlando, Rich DeVos who’s made very unpopular statements. He’s campaigned against gay rights. He says that gay people should stop asking for special treatment because they want to get married. There are a lot of people in this country who think that that is a problem, and I think that there is gonna be more and more attention paid to what these owners think. It’s not just the players in the spotlight now, it’s not just management. They’re accountable, too.
RUSH: Oh, she’s just basically saying that the next target that they’re gonna try to take out is Rich DeVos. Rachel Nichols, yeah, we’re gonna go get Rich DeVos next because he doesn’t believe in gay marriage and there’s a lot of people who think that’s a problem. So Rich DeVos, Mr. Amway — he happens to be one of the greatest patriots this country has ever seen. Rich DeVos happens to have donated and supported some of the greatest causes in this country, but it doesn’t matter ’cause he doesn’t have his mind right on gay marriage.
So we just heard it, the next target. This is brazen, folks. This is fascism. You want to know what it is? This is it. A lot of people have a problem with that. He thinks gay people should stop asking for special treatment because they want to get married. There are gonna be more and more owners that we’re gonna be looking at, too. They better be careful. (interruption) Are there any pro-life owners in the NBA they want to go after? I don’t know. They’ll find out if there are.
