Rush Addresses The Outrage Over The Super Bowl’s Halftime Show

The halftime show from Sunday’s Super Bowl has drawn sharp criticism from police unions as well as former New York City mayor Rudolph Giuliani.  Beyonce performed her new song “Formation” which has been described as anti-police and pro ‘Black Lives Matter’.  Some commentators have described her performance as an homage to the Black Panthers.

According to Rush Limbaugh, her performance “has everybody up in arms.  She gets a police escort to the game.  They sweep everybody off the highway so she can get Super Bowl on time. She didn't have to go hours early and wait.  They parted the traffic for her so she could get there with not much downtime before she had to perform and does that routine ripping the cops, promoting Black Lives Matter.”

The biggest issue that Limbaugh had with the half time performance is that it is in direct contrast with the pregame festivities. 

“I'll tell you, the observation is this.  You have in the Super Bowl, you have the pregame, which features the anthem with a giant American flag spread out over the entire field,” Rush said.  “You have military, uniformed military all over the place.  You have an Air Force or Navy, not sure which, flyby after the anthem. You have the national anthem sung, and it's always sung reverentially. It's always sung with great respect.”

Then you get to the halftime of the Super Bowl, and what the halftime show of the Super Bowl is, to me anyway, is representative of the cultural decay and the political decay and the social rot that is befalling our country. And you see both in contrast with each other within an hour and a half or two hours of each other.”

Do you agree with Rush?
