It begins with Kwanza a make believe holiday created by a black racist to celebrate the tenants of communism. January 1 marks the “Jubilee,” a contrived holiday meant to celebrate the official enactment date of Lincoln’s unconstitutional “Emancipation Proclamation” which freed the slaves in territory the U.S. had no control over at the time. That 150 year old anti-holiday segues into Martin Luther King Day, America’s celebration of the deeply flawed man whose grievous moral shortcomings are papered over in an attempt to create a false image with which to brainwash our young.
Soon after that the month of February comes along, wholly dedicated to the few meager achievements of that 12 percent of the population that manages to make up over 60 percent of prisoners and 80 percent of violent criminals.
Along comes baseball’s spring training and the Jackie Robinson worship begins, with each year an ever increasing level of irrational fixation on the breaking of the color line in baseball. Seeing as how sports is one of the few areas where some positive level of achievement has actually been attained by the “chosen ones,” it remains a favorite target of those that would rebuild our society by tearing it down.
Thus in the “spirit of the season” and the multiculturalists search for another example of “diversity” upon which to browbeat white society, comes the story of Willie O’Ree. O’Ree is trumpeted as the first black hockey player in the NHL.
The problem is there was no barrier to break. While the assumption of the modern day Cultural Marxists that dominate the news media is that all instances of black and white race relations from the days before the savior (MLK) arrived were based upon some kind of white unfairness to blacks, the facts of this historic first don’t fit the agenda.
O’Ree was just another Canuck playing hockey. Sure he was black and probably got some grief for it. No more than a Pollock or a Kraut at a time when people ragged on each other for those types of things. But there was no “barrier.” No unspoken agreement not to hire blacks, no organized opposition to their employment. O’Ree was just another marginally skilled hockey player. Fairly light skinned, it may not have even been much of an issue to many people. Certainly all the comments from his ex-teammates are conspicuous that his race never seemed to be an issue.
The differences are significant between O’Ree and Jackie Robinson, another saintly figure in the pantheon of modern secular religious figures, all of whom for some reason in this age of diversity are black. O’Ree didn’t have to play in the South so there is no issue of segregation at play. He didn’t have to stay at different hotels and eat in different restaurants and use the “colored only” penalty box. Furthermore it’s not like there was a negro hockey league with established players “unfairly” being prohibited from being forced upon white fans.
Most importantly of all, and this is an issue that the Marxists insist you forget, the REAL reason Jackie Robinson was brought into the major Leagues was pure capitalism. Yes, it’s nice to think that Branch Rickey was such a racially enlightened person, but what Rickey wanted most of all was the money of black people that was being spent on the local New York Negro League teams. New York, with a large black population, had several negro teams going at the time and with that kind of “revenue generating possibility” Rickey wanted a cut of that lucre. He was competing against the Yankees and Giants in a crowded, highly competitive market and adding a chunk of fans and their money was good for business.
On the other hand O’Ree’s revenue generating possibilities were about zero. He wasn’t an especially good player and as for the number of black people that were willing to buy a ticket to a hockey game, well that would number in the single digits.
Thus O’Ree was not unfairly excluded because of race, he brought no benefits as far as increased attendance, which means he did not represent any sizable group interests. In fifty years he was never a matter of interest, and now that he is, the question begs to be asked: Why? The answer is simple and depressing.
Hockey is the last major pro sport with an unchallenged white dominance. Players, coaches, fans, refs, announcers, nearly everybody involved in the game is white. We know from a cursory glance at the media that anything positively associated with the white race is subject to critical scrutiny and media denigration. The multiculturalists have been at the throat of hockey for years. They have tried to kill it with poor TV exposure, with insulting attack pieces in major sports magazines; they have even tried to ignore it. Yet year in and year out NHL games are well attended, the skill level grows, and plenty of lily-white people are making lots of money from it and enjoying it immensely. All in the near complete absence of the media’s favorite minority.
Furthermore, the players reinforce the stereotype of white people as polite, intelligent, hard-working, and nice. Meanwhile the black/brown sports teeter from one pathological scandal to the next. Drugs, assaults, attacks, rape, robberies, killings, even animal cruelty for God’s sake. The non-hockey news is as likely to feature the same violent ugly headlines as the non-sports news. And for the same reason.
The enemies in our midst MUST find a way to drag hockey into that morass, they must somehow paint it as bad in some way, there is just not enough scandal or ugliness in the sport and so it shines as a beacon of hope to many white fans. So they drag out a black hockey player from fifty years ago and try to insinuate his presence is a sign of some wrong, some great sin, the greatest sin of all, which for them is the “sin” of white racism.
So news stories are written that recite his tale of woe, how a fan in some small rink called him “Sambo” or some such other life-changing insult that he had to overcome or die. Fifty years! Fifty years they cry and yet still hockey is as white as snow. Oh the injustice, the unfairness! Poor Willie O’Ree, who has devoted his life to bringing the game to inner cities, how he must have struggled to get poor black kids skates and pucks so they could realize their life-long ambition to be another Gordie Howe.
The whole issue is so ridiculously contrived, so artificially phony, so mind-numbingly fake, that if it weren’t taken so seriously it would be laugh-out-loud funny. Has the world we live in become one big satire? Are there not thousands, no, millions, of people that look at this stuff and shake their heads? How could the thing be taken with a single grain of seriousness?
It is worse than the propaganda churned out by the old Soviet Union or some other communist regime. In those cases everyone, even the creators of the stuff, were aware that it was phony junk cranked out to follow a mindless agenda. But with issues like the Willie O’Ree saga there is dead serious writing by supposedly educated sports writers who are too stupid or too brainwashed or too naïve to see it.
The Willie O’Ree issue is a joke. An aged black man traveling around the country on the dime of white guilt bringing the sport of hockey to nobody. He’s like a trained monkey trotted out to the white masses to inculcate some retroactive guilt of which there is none, yet they will try their mightiest to squeeze out some hosanna of praise amongst those who are so mentally weak and morally soft that they will not stand firm against the lies and the deceptions. Don’t be one of them.
