#TakeThe Knee is a Leftist Program that will hurt Blacks

Blacks have it tough in this country.  Not as tough as they do in the rest of the world, to be sure.  But they have it tougher than the average white person.

They live in mostly Black neighborhoods, where murder and crime are completely out of control.  They attend public school with other Black students, where academic achievement is shockingly low. And they are disproportionately affected by Leftist Democrat government policies, which is a tragedy for the ages.

There has been one bright shining light for Blacks over the past 40 years, however. 

Professional sports has created more black millionaires than any other industry.  Basketball and Football have provided Blacks with a disproportionate share of the jobs and created thousands of wealthy Blacks.

Now the Left has decided that the NFL must be infused with progressive socialist politics.  The #TakeTheKnee protest has polarized the country and the fans of the NFL.  Ratings are tanking and the general population is taking notice of the protest.

Even in extremely liberal New England where Elizabeth Warren sits in Ted Kennedy's Senate seat, the fans at the Patriots game booed the #TakeTheKnee protesters during the National Anthem. 

The NFL is in trouble.  The ratings are falling, and, as has been learned in past strikes, they are very slow to recover. 

Fans get caught up in the game.  They revel in the rivalries, and live vicariously through the team.  It becomes a self-reinforcing cycle. 

Once that spell is broken, it is very hard to get back into the game.

The NFL is losing it's base.   NFL fans are middle America.  NFL fans are beer drinking, pick up truck driving, flag waving Americans.   They won't tolerate this disrespect of our Nation.

As ratings dry up and attendance falls, the players will be hardest hit.  The owners cannot change a lot in the bloated cost structures of their teams -- they have to pay for the Stadium and the lights no matter how many fans show up for the game.

So they will cut the only thing they can easily change -- they will cut player salaries. 

This will end the decades long short cut to the middle class that Blacks have enjoyed. This will end up hurting the very people that the protests were designed to help in the first place.

You have to give the Leftist Democrats credit for consistency. 

Everything they do screws over the Black man.

#TakeaKnee for Stup-idi-tee

All across the nation, National Football league players are taking a knee to protest injustice, racism, and whatever leftist crap they are spouting.

This is wrong on several levels.

NFL Games are not an appropriate venue for political statements.   The team and the league own the field, the brand, the broadcasts, and every other aspect of the game.  The players have no right to make political, or any other, statements.   Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys has it exactly right when he told his team that this is his property and his team, and that they would be fired if they didn't do what he wanted.

The players are huge hypocrites for taking a stand in this way.  They are standing in one of the most privileged positions in the world -- they are elite professional athletes being paid millions to play a game -- and they are complaining that they are somehow oppressed.   They are also claiming that cops are racist and willing to shoot random black kids, all while basking in the protection of those very same officers. 

The target that they have chosen -- the National Anthem and the US Flag -- are wildly inappropriate for this protest.  Even if we assume that there is some validity to their claims of inherent racism, the Flag is an overly broad target that simply makes them look un-American. 

The United States, for all its flaws, is still the greatest nation in the world.  We offer everyone, whites and minorities alike, the most opportunities to succeed in life.  People from all over the world see this very clearly, hence our massive immigration crisis. 

When privileged elite athletes disrespect the Flag and our National Anthem, they are disrespecting our nation and all the effort and sacrifices that have been made to make this the greatest country in the world. 

Fuck those guys.   Fuck the NFL.  And double fuck Roger Goodell.



They can go play their games with out me.  I won't be watching.

They All Came True

The middle of the 20th Century saw the end of WWII, the largest and bloodiest conflict the world had ever seen.  After this bloodbath, many wondered what would become of mankind.

We had created incredible and horrifying technology and used it for both great good and great evil.  We now possessed the capability to end all life on the planet, and there was a great deal of speculation about what was next for humanity.

Three authors offered us compelling yet competing visions of the future.  Each of their visions laid out a potential path for mankind.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_OrwellGeorge Orwell penned a dark and foreboding vision in 1984.  He painted a future of war, oppression, propaganda, and government control over everything, including words themselves.  His vision was that of a boot, stamping on a human face, forever.

Aldous Huxley offered a 'happier' view of the future. Mankind harnesses technology to genetically engineer people in A Brave New World.  Every human need is satisfied in an orgy of drugs, games, and sexual license.  There are a few savages who are left outside this happy little world, but the vast majority of people are sailing through life in a drug addled haze, with no regard for human attachment, ambition, or purpose.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H._G._WellsH.G. Wells had his own vision of the future where mankind devolved into two distinct species in The Time Machine.  The Eloi are effeminate humanoids who have no cares nor motivations. They simply idle through their days like children in a meadow.  The Morlocks, on the other hand, have evolved into dark savages that prey on the Eloi.

The question has been: which of these visions will come true?  Which vision would be realized over time as technology and governments evolved. 

Well, it seems that they have all come true.

As mobs of screaming savages destroy statues, and web hosting services delete content they don't like, and our every word is recorded by the 'telescreen' smart phones that we carry about, it is not hard to see that 1984 is upon us.  The media guide us from crisis to crisis, with the requisite 2-Minute Hate every time we have a new enemy.   History is ignored and deleted while our language is policed in the name of political correctness. 

At the same time, we are all drugged and sedated with the endless chemical barrage of Xanax and Adderall while distracted by complicated and spectacular sports.   Our society is very stratified, with the intellectual coastal elites at the top, and the feral inner city mobs as the bottom.   Genetic designer babies are soon to arrive to complement the birth controlled and viagra'd sex life that we freely enjoy while being smothered in erotic advertising and internet porn.   Truly a Brave New World.

Western society has become the Eloi.  Weak and effeminate men as held up as the standard while we are disarmed and made dependent on the state and the police for protection.  The Middle East and our inner cities, in contrast, are filled with Morlocks, savages who prey on the docile and weakened Eloi.    Look at Europe, where Muslim rape gangs are molesting hundreds of women in public, and the Western men do nothing.   Women are raped and murdered public parks, and the police respond by telling women not to go out alone. 


Horrifyingly, all three of these dystopian futures are coming true.  And all at the same time.
