KingIowa’s Congressman Steve King questions NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on his comments about Rush Limbaugh. King points out that two of the owners of the Miami Dolphins, J-Lo and Fergie, have made more divisive comments than Limbaugh has.

As a member of the Black Eyed Peas, Fergie compares the CIA to the Bloodz and the Crips and the KKK.

What’s wrong with the world mama?
People living like aint got no mamas
I think the whole worlds addicted to the drama
Only attracted to the things that bring you trauma
Overseas yeah we tryin to stop terrorism
But we still got terrorists here livin
In the USA the big CIA the Bloodz and the Crips and the KKK

The lyrics to J-Lo’s I’m Real, are so vulgar I’m not comfortable posting them. If you want to read them, click here. King makes an excellent point, how can Rush Limbaugh’s analysis of Donavan McNabb preclude him from being part of an ownership group of an NFL team, when other NFL owners have said far more divisive and controversial things.

King also points out the on the same day that Goodell said that Limbaugh is not suitable to be part of an ownership group for the St. Louis Rams, the league approved Fergie.

Talk about censorship. The following is the video of King questioning Goodell.
