Posers

It seems that the NFL has a common problem. It’s full of people whom have sacrificed nothing, pissing on those that have sacrificed all.

It’s an interesting argument that the thugs and their super-rich, geriatric, white, “owners”  ( umm, irony? ) are presenting in defense of “taking a knee”. Freedom of Speech. How novel. The very people engaged in Orwellian Groupthink in a united affront to real Free Speech are now defending it…..as it applies to privileged felons – on the clock for an employer –  who are making millions playing a game. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again…..there is no such thing as free speech at work – it’s why you’re afraid to tell your coworkers and your boss what you think of their stupid Social Justice and Diversity obsession.

It’s not just the NFL, either. They seem to have the same problem that Hollywood, politicians, corporate media, Silicon Valley, and the world of education have – they’re posers. Literally and figuratively……. big, fake, insincere posers. What is rapidly developing as a result of their posing is horrible, and it leads nowhere good. See, the audience for these posers are morons, and they don’t know that the folks they listen to and idolize don’t really believe in, nor care about – really – any of the things they do or say.

The owners of NFL teams don’t care about “solidarity” with their players and whatever they’re supposedly upset about……they care about being called a racist, white supremacist who loves Trump by those players, their League Union, and their fans. In turn, the players themselves are full of shite, and have no experience with the alleged racism that led to them being able to make millions, beat their girlfriends, murder people outside nightclubs, collect Bentleys……you know, all that stuff that Whitey made them do.  In a sport where over 70 percent of the players are black and worth millions I find this fake “protest” more than stupid. Besides, getting lectured by racist, illiterate boobs about “rights” is incredibly insulting.

In the same vein, politicians calling Trump a monster and a racist and a Nazi and (insert Progressive boogeyman dog whistle here), don’t mean it or believe it. In fact, I would put it forth to you that they care about nothing at all…….except the accumulation and maintenance of power and wealth, that is. Politicians outrage at Trump is about as real as Cryin’ Chuck Schumer’s tears.  Again, the problem is that the historically uninformed electorate they speak to are taking them seriously…….and then they proceed to beat folks in the street for wearing a Make America Great Again hat or for the sin of disagreeing with them.  Who cares if you burn down the greatest experiment in personal freedom and liberty……..when there’s money and power to steal from the rubes you rile up?

None of this would be complete without Hollywood weighing in. Rob Reiner, Morgan Freeman, and the rest of the predictable crowd are now actually lobbying government to “investigate Russia”. Freeman goes so far to say……oh, I mean read someone else’s words ( because that’s what these overpaid liars do ) that say…..” We have been attacked…….we are at war” with Russia. Do Reiner and Freeman know what war is? No, they don’t. Because they’re posing. They’re fake. They lost an election, and like children who don’t get their way, they are pounding their wee little fists in a massive tantrum……all while posing for each other and touting words like “fascism” and “racism”- when they are unable to define them. Comedians and TV shows are now humorless, preaching bores…….nobody can take a joke or speak plain facts in the face of hysteria.

It’s all coming to a head. For the past decade, honor-less, opportunist politicians from the White House on down have shamelessly race-baited and divided the American Public……..literally politicizing everything. We are experiencing the tyranny of a dangerous groupthink. We are witnessing the exchanging of diversity of opinion and thought for the evil theory of Identity Politics, and that only serves up more division.  Well, in case you didn’t know, after divide…..comes conquer. I actually think we’re headed for civil conflict if this doesn’t stop……….but at this point I would just be happy if ball-players actually played ball. That, as well as everything else aforementioned, is pretty hard to do when you’re busy posing and virtue-signaling “with passionate intensity”. These people ruin everything.

 

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

– W.B. Yeats, The Second Coming

A League of Their Own

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”.
