• Laura Ingraham To Rams Players Supporting Michael Brown: “Shut Up And Play”

    Last night, five players for the St. Louis Rams ran onto the field for pre-game introductions with their hands raised to the sky as a gesture of solidarity with the protesters of the grand jury decision in Ferguson, Missouri.

    Tonight, radio talk show host Laura Ingraham said the Rams players’ “hands up” stunt was out of line and urged the team to stick to playing football.

    “I don’t know about you, but when I watch football, I want to watch football,” On the Record host Van Susteren said Monday“I don’t want to watch someone’s political agenda shoved down my throat, whether I’m in agreement with it or not.”

    “I didn’t care for it because it’s also not based on any facts,” Laura Ingraham responded.

    Ingraham also noted that the forensic evidence debunked the false claim that Michael Brown had his hands up when Wilson shot him. “What’s that supposed to mean, it’s bigger than Michael Brown? I don’t understand it.”

    “‘Shut up and play’ would be my preference,” Ingraham said. “But of course they have a right to speak out. But, at this time, at this moment, I don’t know what they think they are going to accomplish.”

    The St. Louis Police Officers Association, SLPOA, is now demanded an apology from the NFL and the Rams. However, the Rams and the league announced today that no fines or disciplines will come of the players’ gesture.
