It has been noted previously that Michael Sam has been playing the game of “I should have been drafted a lot sooner, but I was not and some other factor than my ability is obviously the reason for that.” And the lefty media establishment has been eager to fill in the blank by identifying “some other factor” as a word that rhymes with “Momorobia.”
But, there may have been a way in which Michael Sam’s awesome sexuality was a factor on the minds of NFL owners.
“I spoke to one NFL team that suggested it was interested in drafting Sam and had no concerns about him fitting into its locker room or creating any distractions. The team was instead worried what the public perception would be if it drafted and then cut him — and this team had projected Sam as an extremely late pick, likely to be on its roster bubble — even if it made the move solely for football-related reasons.”
A perfectly valid point. The left uses victimhood status as both shield and cudgel against criticism of those whose primary claim to fame is their status as a member of a protected victim group. Criticism of Obama is, de facto, racism. Criticism of Hillary is, de facto, sexism. And criticism of Michael Sam is, de facto, homophobia. And drafting him his inviting trouble from those who care nothing about the game of football except as a vessel for advancing the Party Agenda.
