With the ridiculous farce we saw on football fields all across the country today, what's the point of being an NFL fan anymore? We rooted for White athletes, with the understanding that while expecting them to openly speak out against the Caste System was too much, they could at least refrain from speaking out in favor of it. When the NFL was (relatively) apolitical, we could root for Alex Smith or Aaron Rodgers without wondering if they secretly hated us for being Alt-Right. Even when idiots like Chris Long went on SJW rants, we could dismiss it by saying he's just one second-string player. Even when Aaron Rodgers went on a tirade attacking a fan who had criticized Islam, we could dismiss it as an isolated incident. But today, we saw a so-called "show of unity" that in reality was nothing more than a gigantic left-wing circle jerk. We saw billionaire NFL owners whine that they were being "oppressed" by wicked working-class conservative White people, the fans who were boycotting the league, who just didn't understand how hard those rich liberals have it, the poor snowflakes. We saw NFL millionaire players, white as well as black, whine that they were being "oppressed" by President Trump because he dared say something that caused them butthurt. We heard a lot about freedom of speech, but the only statements from anyone associated with the NFL, whether owner, coach, player, or reporter, whether black or white, were all the exact same regurgitated ideological rhetoric about how we're all the same and must all come together, except for those right-wing deplorables, of course. That's not freedom of speech. When all the official channels are spewing the same bile and silencing opposing voices, that's the opposite of freedom of speech. That's fascism. The liberals, with total control of the media and near-total control of corporate America, are claiming to be victims of "oppression." In a disgusting display of self-righteousness, they are claiming to be courageous heroes standing up to THE MAN, when in reality they ARE The Man. These protesters have received nothing but salivating, Pavlovian praise from the one-dimensional media. Not one person in the "mainstream" media has criticized them. What they are doing takes no courage at all. The camel's back was broken today, and the straw's name was white liberalism. White player after white player joined in the anti-conservative pogrom, spewing the same recycled liberal rhetoric (and in some cases, like Alex Smith, outright lies). How can we be expected to root for players, though they may look like us, when they hate everything we love and love everything we hate? If they're going to be so hyper-partisan that they can't even do their jobs without going into workplace political rants, there's no reason to support them. I know there are those on this site who disagree, and that's fine. We all have our own tipping points, and this was mine. This does not mean that all NFL players agree with this circus. When all the players locked arms during the anthem, I guarantee that there were some players who did not want to participate in that dog-and-pony show. There is no way that 53 men can share one hive mind. There were some players who wanted to speak out in favor of our flag, the military, and the police. But they stayed silent, because they would have been punished if they had spoken their minds. THEY are the ones who are truly oppressed. I sympathize with them, and I do not begrudge them for staying silent. They, just like myself and millions of other conservatives, would be treated like criminals for expressing their opinions. I understand. When liberals say they support freedom of speech, they mean only for their kind. But a few silent allies are not enough to make the league worth watching. I used to be able to cheer whenever a White face scored a touchdown, made an interception, or notched a sack. Not anymore. I am not going to cheer for anyone, of any race, who spews hatred at my values. Nor am I going to keep a set of notes on which white players have joined the ranks of liberal douchebags and which have not. It's not worth it. We owe the NFL nothing. It is they who owe us and owe us much, starting with a sincere apology, retractions of their anti-conservative statements, and punishments for those who refuse to acknowledge their wrongdoing. Until the NFL apologizes for its shameful display of self-righteousness, makes it clear through outreach that all sides are welcome, including ours, and takes action against the rabid far-leftists who started this whole divisive campaign, I will not be giving the league any more of my time or money. Football used to be a time for fun and relaxation, a time to enjoy good food while watching an entertaining game, a time to escape from work and other stresses, including politics. No longer. By turning the league into a political whinefest that welcomes liberals only, the owners have alienated millions of good, normal, law-abiding, hard-working, tax-paying human beings. They can continue down this poisonous path until the games become little more than hate-filled, left wing extremist SJW rallies, or they can pull their heads out of their a**es and realize where their bread is buttered. It's up to them. I will continue to post on Caste Football, and I look forward to the truly diverse opinions that will be expressed here on this and other subjects, unlike the false "diversity" from the one-dimensional "mainstream" media. God bless America, and God bless President Trump. God bless Riley Cooper and God bless John Rocker. They know the score. Above all, above even religion, country, and family, God bless the Alt-Right. Never in history has a movement so noble been so wrongly vilified. They are the true heroes.
