Townhall OpEd: ‘The NFL Is a Product I Refuse to Purchase Any Longer’

My feeling exactly.

From Steve Sheldon at Townhall

Today’s headlines tell me that Kansas City Chiefs’ player Marcus Peters sat out the National Anthem during last night’s NFL opener. I wouldn’t know, I wasn’t watching.

As consumers in America, we have a freedom to choose the products we purchase with the money we keep from our hard work after our government masters take their half. With that money, we buy the things we need and enjoy. It’s a simple concept; I don’t need or enjoy the NFL, so I do not participate in its offerings. I don’t go to games, I don’t watch them on television or the internet, and I don’t purchase NFL or player paraphernalia. I do this for a variety of reasons:

  1. The NFL has become a bastion of political correctness and Leftist thought. It may be a small handful of players opposing their country’s anthem, but as long as it is accepted by the owners and coaches, then they have lost me as a viewer. Yes, in the U.S.A. you have the freedom to express your views however ridiculous they may be. I, too, have a right to express my disapproval of your views through my pocketbook.The NFL is a business that sells a product. I happen to now find that product unattractive, overpriced, and out of style – so I refuse to buy it.
  2. The NFL has immersed itself in the hip-hop culture. Yes, I know this automatically makes me a racist according to the Left, but I simply don’t like the hip-hop culture and the things it represents that have nothing to do with skin color. I don’t approve of a culture whose music refers to women as “b**ches” and “h*s”, glorifies drug usage and violence, and encourages an illicit lifestyle. Plus, I don’t like the clothing. Pull up your pants, you look like an idiot. When this type of “music” blares out over the sound system in the stadium, as it did when I attended my last NFL game, I’m gone.
  3. It’s a game. As I age, certain things become more valuable to me. Time is a resource and I refuse to give it up to something I don’t enjoy. I do still attend some college games and cheer for my alma mater, so it’s not the game I don’t enjoy; rather, it’s the commercialization and the culture. At the last professional football game I attended, I looked around at the people spending $9.00 for a beer wearing their $90 team jersey, and decided I didn’t want to be one of them. I can still enjoy the game by watching my local high school team. I can even walk onto the field afterwards and make a young person feel good by congratulating them on a good game, great tackle, or exceptional run.
  4. The anthem. I served my country for six years, and the National Anthem brings a tear to my eye every time I hear it. Every. Time. It represents the collective sacrifice of my friends and colleagues and everyone who went before us. It’s the same flag that was draped over my former teammate’s coffin after being killed in Afghanistan. It’s personal to me, very personal. To sit it out, talk during it, raise your fist, or any other form of disrespect is unacceptable to me. Period. I’m simply not willing to look beyond that. There is no pass on this one. If you can’t stand still and respect the flag of this great nation and everything for which it stands, then you and everyone associated with you isn’t getting one dime from me. When Chiefs fans replace the last word of the anthem with the word “Chiefs” I don’t find it cute or excuse the behavior. It’s disrespectful to the millions of brave souls who gave the ultimate sacrifice so that these slobs could swill their $9 beers and scream at players on a Sunday afternoon. It’s inappropriate, disrespectful and I’m not going to participate.
    One aside on this topic: If I understand the argument, those who sit out the anthem think America is a racist country and the national anthem somehow represents the idea that all cops are racists. Huh? Seriously, your argument is just dumb and doesn’t even deserve a response. I would not disagree with those who would suggest that only a handful of players in the NFL hate America and therefore the rest shouldn’t be punished for that reason alone just like all cops are not racists. To that argument, reference items 1-3, 5, 6. Additionally, we are judged by the company we keep. You want to have an America hater on your team? Then I chose not to support you.
  5. We all have our likes and dislikes, and I simply dislike the culture that has become sports today. Geez, how much can we talk about and “analyze” a game? Admittedly, I pay attention to politics as much as a sports junkie watches games, but what politicians do affects my life. What’s going on in North Korea matters much more than whether or not Tom Brady completed 50% of his passes. If North Korea lobs over a nuke, you can kiss your sports goodbye, among other things.
  6. Taxpayer subsidized stadiums. A significant number of sports stadiums are subsidized or are built with taxpayer dollars. Does the taxpayer get to park for free? Do they receive free admission to the game? Are they allowed to use the locker room or weight room during the week? Do they get a free “I helped pay for this stadium” t-shirt? Of course not. Government should not participate in local business other than by providing an environment where business thrives. While I commend the shrewd business owner who increases his wealth from government handouts, I do not approve of the practice and refuse to participate in something that encourages it.

So, Colin Kaepernick, Marcus Peters and every other flag protesting twit, this American is done with the likes of you. And, I’m not alone. Welcome to the unemployment line coming soon to your future.

 

 

The ‘free speech’ disrespect for the flag and the anthem has consequences. People who are angered and disgusted by such douchebaggery exercise their free speech with boycotts and social media counter protests.

As a retired Army veteran there are some things that are non-negotiable and disrespect for the symbol that represents the sacrifice of those who gave their lives to protect this country, is a non-negotiable.

This is my response to the NFL players who pull that shit:

First of all, fuck you. Your behavior, especially on the anniversary of a day when America was attacked by animals who would gladly have killed you as well, is pretty fucking despicable.  You showed your asses to the country and the reception is understandably less than amicable.

You don’t know one fucking thing about ‘oppression’. Newsflash: Slavery in this country ended over 150 years ago. The Civil Rights Act was passed over 50 years ago. Your parents weren’t slaves. My ancestors weren’t rich enough to own any. The bare minimum wage of an NFL player is $375,000 a year. Where I come from that’s a lot of money.  You could warm the bench an entire season and still make a six-figure salary. So, your ‘rebellion’ is an insult to average Americans who earn about 1/7th of what you make.

This bullshit ‘protest’ started with a petulant overpaid, ungrateful punk who was adopted by a white family when his white mother and BLACK father abandoned him.

The dumbassity has spread to other NFL players who think ‘solidarity’ means engaging  an act of disrespect and politicizing the national anthem for violent black radicals who burn, loot, vandalize, and slaughter each other at an incredible rate.

For your information, blacks are less than 13 percent of the national population, yet their homicide rate against whites and Hispanics combined is vastly disproportionate to their share of the population.

Where’s the fucking protests?

Ethnicity is exploited for political gain and power grabs by bloviating ‘activists’; attention whores with no intention of doing what it takes to change their situation so that this doesn’t happen. Skin color is used as an excuse for everything from laziness to abhorrent criminal behavior.  Throwing the race card and practicing victimology is so much easier than personal accountability.  You ignore the crime rate in black neighborhoods, and black on white hate crimes with equal indifference.

More whites than blacks are killed by police every year, but that doesn’t get any attention. They only “lives that matter” are the ones that Al Sharpton can exploit for political gain.

If “black lives matter” you need to tell the mutherfuckers to stop gang banging each other.  Tell them instead of making lame assed excuses for behavior and character flaws, raise their children to respect themselves and others.  Discipline, guidance, and respect start at home with the parents. Look at the example you set. If you’re a gang member, they will likely follow suit. If you are part of the perpetual welfare class and entitlement culture that doesn’t work because they don’t have to, and you manipulate the system and pass the technique along to your children like a goddamned family heirloom, they’ll turn out just like you.

You’re under the impression that your vulgar behavior is ‘courageous’.  Wrong. This is courage:

Even those rescue dogs have more courage than you ever will.

Oh, and finally, THIS is courage:

Brave Americans—people far better than you—fought and died for the principles represented by the flag, just so you could make a bundle playing a sport.

Instead of acting like ungrateful infantile douchebags, have some respect. Show some class. If you can’t muster the integrity to stand and render honors to the national anthem, that speaks volumes about the content of your character.

NFL Boycotts, Kaepernick Backlash Becoming Major Factor As NFL Ratings Drop Yet Again In Week 4

Not The Onion: EPSN Pulls Asian Announcer From Game Because His Name is Robert Lee

From Outkick The Coverage

UPDATE: ESPN ISSUES OFFICIAL STATEMENT ON MOVING ROBERT LEE FROM VIRGINIA GAME:

“We collectively made the decision with Robert to switch games as the tragic events in Charlottesville were unfolding, simply because of the coincidence of his name. In that moment it felt right to all parties. It’s a shame that this is even a topic of conversation and we regret that who calls play by play for a football game has become an issue.”

In a story that seems made for The Onion, but is actually true, according to multiple Outkick fans inside ESPN MSESPN decided to pull an Asian college football announcer named Robert Lee off the William and Mary at University of Virginia college football game because they were concerned that having an ASIAN FOOTBALL ANNOUNCER NAMED ROBERT LEE would be offensive to some viewers.
Did I mention that Robert Lee is Asian?
Is this even real life anymore? This might even be worse than MSESPN apologizing for the fantasy football slave draft a couple of weeks ago.
To avoid offending left wing idiots Robert Lee, the Asian college football announcer, not the Confederate General who died in 1870 and shares a name with him, was switched to the Youngstown State at Pittsburgh game and Dave Weekley will now call the William and Mary at University of Virginia game.
Unless someone tries to take down Dave Weekley statues between now and kickoff.
In which case ESPN will be royally fucked.

But, seriously, is there anything more pathetic than ESPN believing people would be offended by an Asian guy named Robert Lee sharing a name with Robert E. Lee and calling a football game? Aside from some hysterical photoshops and Internet memes which would make everyone with a functional brain laugh — Robert E. Lee pulling out all the stops to stay in Charlottesville now! — what was the big fear here? Does ESPN really believe people are this dumb or that having an Asian announcer named Robert Lee is too offensive for the average TV viewer to handle?
Yes, yes they do.
I’m sorry you work for such an idiotic company, Robert Lee.
But just to make it clear for everyone out there, the Asian man on the right is not long deceased Confederate General Robert E. Lee. He’s a different person entirely, one that is still alive and did not fight in the Civil War.

 

 

I stopped watching ESPN a while ago because of their vulgar injection of race politics into their “sports analysis”.  The media is bat-shit crazy with insufferable identity and racial pandering to the point where it’s become unwatchable.

Another Disgrace: 11 Cleveland Browns Players Kneel During Anthem

From 12 up

……The 11 players who knelt in a circle were as follows: Seth DeValve, Duke Johnson Jr., Terrence Magee, Jabrill Peppers, Calvin Pryor, Jamar Taylor, Kenny Britt, Ricardo Louis, Chris Kirksey, Jamie Collins and Isaiah Crowell. DeValve was the only white player of the group.

In addition to the kneeling players, Britton Colquitt, Jason McCourty, DeShone Kizer, Trevon Coley and Shon Coleman stood near the circle.

Malcolm Jenkins garnered a lot of attention for raising his first during the anthem earlier this preseason, and Marshawn Lynch and Michael Bennett sat during the anthem before their preseason games. Colin Kaepernick, of course, made waves for kneeling for the anthem last season, and has been in the news all summer because he hasn’t yet been signed.

 

Remember the names of those assholes.

I’ve been a Browns fan since 1964. I won’t be watching them this year. Matter of fact, I won’t be watching any NFL games this year.  Roger Goodell is a pussy and he refuses to condemn this. Fuck ’em all.

To all the NFL players who kneel during the anthem:

Brave Americans—people far better than you—fought and died for the principles represented by the flag, just so you could make a bundle playing a sport.
Instead of acting like ungrateful infantile douchebags, have some respect. Show some class. If you can’t muster the integrity to stand and render honors to the national anthem, that speaks volumes about the content of your character.

 

New York Times: Speech You Dislike is an ‘Act of Violence’

You can’t make up this shit.

Hat tip to Twitchy

As if folks weren’t soft enough as it is in 2017, The New York Times published an op-ed that claims any language you don’t like is an act of violence and may even shorten your life.

 

When it comes to acts of violence, no one does it like the Left. The Dems embrace ‘occupy’ thugs, ‘black lives matter‘ criminals, and ‘antifa‘ malfeasants.   A leftwingnut who was inspired by Dem rhetoric, opened fire on Republicans playing a baseball game. The leftwing media own this violence. They foster it, praise it, and support it .

Liberals want a monopoly on speech.  Any opinion, viewpoint, and discourse they disagree with is met with hatespeech, bullying, and intimidation.  Leftist mob violence has become the standard method of debate.

Leftwing rags like the NYT assault people daily with their own brand of stupid.   My blood pressure hits the roof whenever I see, read, or hear some dumbassed liberal spew their idiotic rants about “safe spaces, triggering, microagressions, social justice, victimology, and gender neutral” bullshit.  Maybe I can jack-slap Sulzberger, and blame it on the tripe published in his paper.

Unhinged Dem Punk Scott Hamann Threatens Trump’s Life in Facebook Rant

Another Dem politician spews haterade.

From Lifezette

Democratic State Representative Scott Hamann of Maine unleashed an expletive-laden and violent anti-Trump Facebook rant Tuesday, in which he directly threatened President Donald Trump’s safety.

……The rant quickly drew condemnation from Maine Republicans.

“Rep. Hamann’s comments demonstrate that he has joined the ranks of the radicalized in the Democrat Party. After these public comments, including a threat on President Trump’s life, House Speaker Sara Gideon should demand his resignation,” Jason Savage, executive director of the Maine GOP, told LifeZette. “The good people of his district and across Maine deserve better than violent threats against our commander in chief.”

The rant included several insults hurled at supporters of the president, along with the popular Democratic conspiracy theory that Russians were solely responsible for Trump’s election.

……”The best way I can describe these comments is simple: unhinged and dangerous,” said Maine GOP Chair Demi Kouzounas in a statement.

“Words cannot even begin to describe the level of revulsion I feel after reading Representative Scott Hamann’s recent tirade that has come to light,” Kouzounas’ statement continued, “Perhaps the most alarming aspect of this tirade is an implied death threat against our president.”

“I not only call on, but demand that Speaker Sara Gideon actually do something about her unethical and radicalized caucus. Is this language and behavior that she is willing to accept from Democrat Representatives?” asked Kouzounas. “She has a choice to make. I know what mine would be if I were in her position.”

 

Here’s the rant from the unhinged twatwaffle:

 

 

 

The feelings are mutual, snowflake. We hate every inch of your rancid guts. You’re a bunch of chickenshits who hide behind computers and wear masks with ‘antifa’ thugs on the streets while you vandalize local businesses because they’re owned by people who work for a living.
You must have been smoking some hellacious crack for eight years to claim that Obama was “classy” with “no scandals” and “improved the economy”.
Anyone who studied Obama’s personality, Marxist philosophy and background, would have understood that  he was totally unfit to lead a Democratic Republic.
The arrogant Marxist moron engaged in the wanton destruction of our free-market system and demonized business owners.
He rammed ghastly legislation through Congress in the form of ObamaCare, he repeatedly violated the U.S. Constitution, spent billions of tax dollars on “green” eco scams, seized 2/3rds of the auto industry, embraced the “Occupy” thugs, and chummed around with union racketeers who make threats and commit violent crimes.
The ObamaCare Frankenstein which caused millions of people to lose the affordable health care they already had,  has imploded.
He lied about and covered up the ‘Fast and Furious’ gunrunning operation, and started another gunrunning operation in Syria.
He systematically released muzzie terrorist cutthroats from Gitmo, and traded five of the worst for a deserter.
He commuted the sentence of traitor Bradley Manning who leaked classified information that endangered the lives of fellow Soldiers.
Thanks to Obama the ISIS “JV Team” has gone varsity.
His (and Hillary’s) depraved indifference toward the embassy staff in Benghazi resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including the Ambassador.  He lied about the terrorist attack, and  disrespected the military and their families.
He paid $400 million to Iranian despots for hostage ransom.
Obama signed executive orders which were in full violation of the law.
His regime conducted IRS targeting of Tea Party groups.
His NSA used blanket, indiscriminate spying on American citizens.
He directed the DOJ to harass reporters and tap into their phones and emails when they published information that exposed his criminal tendencies, depraved indifference and incompetence.
Obama figured he could do anything he wanted, which runs contrary to the Checks and Balances proscribed in the Constitution; a document he’s shredded after he took the oath of office.
He added $10 trillion to the national debt.
He damaged national security, gave aid and comfort to the enemy, and allowed muzzie terrorists to operate and form political groups in this country. He pandered to and supported Muslim Brotherhood terrorist facilitators. He is such a Dhimmi to the point where he managed to make Bin Laden’s demise look anti-climactic.
He got bitch-slapped by Vladimir Putin so often he was punch-drunk.
He back-stabbed Israel, the only real ally we have in the Middle East.
Obama was willing to overlook 55 years of Castro’s brutal dictatorship, and ‘normalize relations’ with his communist gulag.
For eight years this lying sociopath, divisive bigot, and muslim ass kisser  completely ruined America’s economy, foreign policy, national security, and world standing.  This inept self-absorbed narcissist kissed up to America’s enemies and made a complete ass of himself on the world stage.
Thanks to the sophomoric foreign policy of this half-wit, our national security and our position as standard bearer for a safeguard against the world’s malefactors,  was disgraced.
The fucking malfeasant belongs in prison, along with Hillary, Eric Holder, and Lois Lerner.
Fuck you, Hamann.  Fuck you and the rest of the DemProg shitstains who helped Barky damage this country. Can’t handle the reversal of Obama’s disasters? Tough shit. Don’t like the fact that fed-up Americans rejected the corrupt Hildabeast and Barky’s legacy?  Eat shit.
Do the world a favor and jump in front of a fucking train. Take Nancy Pelosi with you.

 

My guess is that nothing will happen to this asswipe. The Dems always cover for their own.
