Rush Limbaugh Predicts New 49ers Policy Will Destroy NFL and America

If you haven’t already heard, the San Francisco 49ers recently announced some housekeeping changes designed to optimize players’ performance. As the Wall Street Journal reports, the team is carving its typical two hour meetings into 30-minute chunks, followed by a 10-minute intermission for texting, tweeting, and Facebooking.

The move comes after ad execs and Stanford researchers informed coach Jim Tomsula that engaging the Millennial brain “means making concessions for people with shorter attention spans, a desire to multitask and, yes, a need to check their phones all the time.”

File this under "easy humor," but Rush Limbaugh is scandalized by the news and wants the rest of America to know that anarchy is coming:

We're getting to the point where, ain't gonna be long, running back X scores a crazy play, goes to the sideline, he watches the video of himself doing it and posts it on his Twitter account and is commenting to people during the game about his TD that he just scored. And then the networks are gonna tap into the feed, they're gonna be reporting it, and pretty soon there's not gonna be any difference in the stage and the audience, and that's when it's all gonna crumble.

Limbaugh also despaired over America’s deepening nihilism::

In addition to Americans losing confidence in everything, they're losing confidence in religion. Confidence in religion has hit a new low. Everything's on the... Everything is bottoming out. The American people are losing faith in everything. The one element that's missing... They're losing faith in the economy. They're losing faith in the country. And this feeds, by the way, right into the leftist agenda. Lose faith in everything and turn to government for the solution to everything.

He went on to say that Americans didn’t feel this bleak six years ago. (Bush’s 22 percent approval rating in 2009 was apparently a misdiagnosed bout of optimism.)

When everything is in the shitter six years from now, Rush’s words will come back to haunt us, and the 49ers will be to blame.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
