By: Mark G. Mangie. Pictured: Sanctimonious Stephen Curry. What hasn’t the left ruined? Over the past years, the left wing self-appointed guardians our horrible and despicable culture have pretty much taken the fun out of everything. They achieved that by redefining words we use. Telling you what words you are allowed to use. Telling you how you really feel and think. Shaming you by elevating their position and belittling yours. And when all else fails, they call you names…racist, bigot, homophobe, misogynist. If we complain, then we are being divisive and hateful. Over the past years we have put our heads down, wallowing in our own shame and inadequacies, and sulked away. Afraid to speak up. No more.
To the NFL and NBA…President Trump has finally stood up for what people like me think. As ESPN and the NFL and the NBA have become just another set of vehicles to spew the Progressive left-wing dogma of hate, someone has finally said the truth. There is no free speech in a business. You are paid to do a job and not express your views if it hurts the business or franchise. If you don’t like what the business stands for…quit. Nobody says you have to work there. Of all the hypocritical and hysterical jock comments and meaningless gestures we have witnessed over the past few weeks by various sports figures…not one of them has availed themselves of the one that counts: quitting your ridiculously high paying job because in good conscience you can’t do it anymore. Won’t do that. Couldn’t do that.
Trump finally spoke what is in the heart of many Americans. To the NFL…if a player takes a knee during the National Anthem, throw the son of bitch off the field. If you find an invitation to the White House insulting, you are not invited. It’s about time. To those sports figures who are so oppressed that they are paid millions of dollars a year to play a game…for God’s sake…shut up. Your only accomplishment is you can throw a ball down the field or throw a ball into a hoop. Admirable…but not worth 1/10th of what you are being paid.
Left-wing bullies have one by one destroyed the fabric of American life. They have destroyed Christmas. They have destroyed religion. They have destroyed feeling patriotic. They have destroyed school lunches. They have destroyed masculinity and destroyed the innocence of youth. They have destroyed civil discourse. They have destroyed enjoying movies. They have destroyed enjoying Broadway plays. They have destroyed football. They have destroyed late night television. They have destroyed our history. And now they trying to destroy the reputation of the founders of this great nation. Even more disturbingly, they destroyed this year’s Presidential Inauguration ceremonies by not showing up…the one event that celebrates this nation’s greatest strength, the peaceful passing of power. Instead, they left empty seats, and paraded a bunch of women down the street wearing vagina hats, breaking windows and setting cars on fire.
Do that. Don’t do this. Say that. Don’t say that. Wear this. Don’t where that. Make only so much money unless you are one of us…then you can make all you want. Buy that health care plan because the one you want doesn’t pay for some bimbo’s birth control, and we will buy what we want because we are special. It is a never-ending stream of pomposity that is fed to us through television, late night comedy shows, award shows, schools…and now sports.
I applaud Trump’s candor in a world where only appearances count…not substance. The only way to get the bullies to back off is to stand up them. Feed them back their own medicine. Call out their own self-aggrandizement. Call out their “look at how much I care” narcissism. Call out their hypocrisy. Talk longer than they do. Talk louder than they do. Their view of the world, at best, is no better than yours; at worst, deeply beneath yours.
Thank you, Mr. Trump. Amen and amen.
