Stern: NBA Not "Going Commie?

Sep 25, 2009

Fox's Glenn Beck Says Pinkos Are Everywhere
 
New York - After encouraging a Russian investor to take over the New Jersey Nets, NBA Commissioner David Stern is denying charges that he is moving the 60-year-old league  toward Communism. “The NBA will not go red on my watch,” said Stern. “Yes, Mikhail  Prokhorov is a Russian but he’s no communist or socialist. Heck, he even paid for dinner last night.”
 
Responding to the report, leading neo-conservative pundit Glenn Beck called basketball “an important employer of grateful imported people” and tearfully called on the NBA to “protect America against Russkies and other pinkos who are everywhere.” 

Beck vehemently denied a report that his television variety show was planning on dropping selected Communists into boiling water during upcoming sweeps week.
 
“I would never sell my soul for money," said Fox's Beck. "That wouldn’t be right."
