The NFL Better Figure Out We wAtch The Game To Escape Politics, If they Don’t, They Will Die.
We are getting ready for Sunday’s opening of the NFL. With preseason gone, there was none, no exposure, we are now being told that we must side with Black Lives Matter, buy into the narrative of the left, yet the players and the League leadership fails to understand why people watch football.
With support for Black Lives Matter plummeting, the riots that follow them, looting, burning, assaults, people are tired of this, we don’t want to be reminded more of what we have seen for the last six months, yet we are being told by players who live in gated communities, make more money in a year then most of us make in a lifetime, that they are oppressed, we need to shut up and listen to their pushing this social awareness nonsense.
Before I go any further, I need to state, I think Black Lives Matter, most Americans feel this way, the problem is BLM who is marching and screaming about this, they don’t think that black lives matter or they would be marching in the neighborhoods where blacks are taking black lives, yet they turn a blind eye to the tens of thousands of lives taken by black on black violence and erupt over the one life, many times it is brought on by the actions of the person, by police, many times who are black themselves.
To make up for this, we are told that whites are somehow to blame for this, the NFL has gone completely in with this message, just like the NBA, MLB and other sports, but people don’t like to be blamed for something they had nothing to do with.
The youth don’t seem to mind, but the youth have little or no experience in life, so they are easily manipulated by adults with an agenda; it is harder to do this with adults who are willing to fact check what they are being told. The idea that people who were never slaves are demanding reparations from people who themselves never held slaves, neither did their parents or grandparents, is causing resentment; we are not responsible for something an ancestor we have never met did over 150 years ago.
To try to bring this to our world, to show we are somehow to blame, the left created the school of thought called “White Privilege,” sadly this is indoctrinated into the minds of our youth from the time they start school until they get out, such programming takes years to remove.
To see the silliness of this is to go back a little further. Do we expect the English to share guilt for why we broke free from England in the 1700s? Of course not, England then is not the same government or conducts itself in the same way it did then.
Further, could I, as a Jew, go after blacks for slavery in Egypt? I have gotten some supporters of reparations get angry at me; they bring up reparations; I tell them as long as we are suing for the actions of ancestors we never knew, then I should be able to do the same. If they agree to have reparations for everyone held as a slave put into a kitty, then tack on interest, that is only fair (this is what they demand), then figure out who owns what.
Since Blacks love to remind us that ancient Egyptians were black (give it time, they say Jesus and ancient Jews were black, soon Christopher Columbus and Marco Polo will be claimed to be the same), I tell them that since my people were enslaved longer than theirs. There is a 4,500-year difference between events; I ask them when they are going to pay me. This usually brings an angry reaction, how dare I claim to be a victim? Only they have rights to this claim. Thankfully I was always taught that adversity does not make you a victim; if you overcome it, it makes you a victor.
It is the same thing with the NFL, to claim you are a victim when the majority of fans for the NFL and other sports are white, without this audience advertizers would not pay television to advertise, the stations would not negotiate the contracts in the billions if they were not earning that much, these players would be paid like the players in the 1960s were. They want me to feel they are victims? Ppppppppppllllllllllllllllllllllleeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaasssssssssssse.
Rare may want us to stop calling these players spoiled; I will continue to do so, will laugh at their foolishness as they take one of two paths, to continue on with their current path, alienate many fans, lose fans, lose revenue, soon their blotted budgets will be unsustainable. Or they can play the game, leave politics at the door, understand this is just a game, a game where people go to get away from the political garbage we are having thrust on us 24/7.
