I’m going to point something out that everyone seems to be missing in the ridiculous debate about what spoiled-brat-turned-overrated-quarterback Colin Kaepernick is doing. If you live under a rock, Colin is the idiot from the San Francisco 49’ers that has decided to not stand for the National Anthem in protest of evil Whitey and in solidarity with Black Lives Matter. I’ll type this slowly so everyone can understand……. He has no right to protest.
Now that you are aghast at my statement, and fuming at my insensitivity, let me clarify before you are “triggered” into running to a “Safe Space”. I assure you I am a supreme believer in the Bill of Rights, so I’ll explain. You see, young Colin is what I like to call, “on the clock”, just like when you go to work. Now……let me ask you something…….do you have freedom of speech at work? Do you have freedom of expression? If your answer is “yes” then you are as stupid as the street bullies and thugs that populate the NFL nowadays.
I challenge all those reading this to perform their own exercise in NFL-style freedom. March into your Boss’s office, have a seat, and then proceed to tell him or her that you think they suck, are stupid, and that the company employing you is a joke. Then go back to your desk, or whatever, and count the minutes before you are escorted out of the workplace. Welcome to unemployment, and good luck collecting your O-Benefits with what your former employer puts on your pinkslip.
Guess why that happens? Because when you agree to work for someone you are signing away that part of your life to your employer……they, for all intents and purposes, own you……and you have agreed to act in accordance with their wishes and policies. So by all means enjoy your freedom……just know that it has consequences.
The absurdity of men who play a game for millions of dollars a year, more than most fans make in a lifetime, protesting the very Nation that affords them the lavish pay and lifestyles they enjoy, should be ridiculed at every opportunity. Add to that the inability of people to understand the hypocrisy of the positions of some of these intellectual giants due to their politically correct brainwashing, and you have a truly laughable situation.
The Grievance Class in this country, equal parts spoiled, rich celebrities/athletes and Social Justice Warriors, has become truly unhinged and disconnected from reality. So please, NFL crybabies……..keep “taking a knee”……just don’t be surprised when afterwards the people who pay you and buy your jerseys tell you to “take a hike”.
“Everyone is in favor of free speech. Hardly a day passes without it being extolled, but some people’s idea of it is that they are free to say what they like, but if anyone says anything back, that is an outrage.” – Winston Churchill
