According to the way smarter and funnier than me David Burge, this is how the Progressive Left works:
1. Target a respected institution 2. Kill & clean it 3. Wear it as a skin suit, while demanding respect
This is how the left operates. Public education was taken over by the left. Now, our kids are at the bottom of the pack in math and science, but they know all their transgender pronouns and can spout anti-Capitalist talking points like Hugo Chavez (or the Pope). Meanwhile, teachers demand society’s respect as the Priests and Priestesses of the Holy Temple of Education.
They’re doing it to the Boy Scouts. All that old scout stuff about honor, patriotism, bravery… that’s what the left calls “Toxic Masculinity.” Now that the Scouts have knuckled under to the social justice wankers, their glidepath to becoming another left-wing indoctrination farm is all but assured.
This has little or nothing to do with police shootings, racial profiling or any of the rest of it. What we’re seeing is an almost brilliant and concerted effort to damage, if not eliminate, the National Football League.
Why? Because the activist Left has despised the NFL for years. They hate everything about it. It’s a game filled with big, tough, manly men engaging in the closest thing to warfare you can manage without guns. It’s a game rife with symbolism and, yes… nationalism. Even people who would never buy an album from a country singer could feel their blood heating up when Hank Williams used to sing, Are you Ready for Some Football. The military loves football and they fly jets over the stadiums in formation and send our nation’s finest out to pay tribute. And it’s not just the military. Our police and other first responders are frequently called out for honors at the games. Everything about it screams of apple pie, fireworks and patriotism. (Or, if you prefer, God, guns and flags.) And the activist Left hates it. Probably the only sporting event they despise more is NASCAR.
Exactly so. But the greedy and stupid NFL owners have no clue that this is the actual agenda. They just made an insipid advertisement about “Unity,” thinking this is going to fix everything. “Unity” is just a word the left uses to mean “Shut Up and Obey!”
