President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”

NOPE, I STILL DON’T MISS NFL FOOTBALL: Seahawks’ Pete Carroll: ‘White People’ ‘Need To Be Educated’ About Racism.

Tickets don’t purchase themselves and there are plenty of other things to watch on TV.

This, from a guy who couldn't trust a black man to run 2 yards with a football to win the superbowl.

This will solve the problems, I am sure.

SNIP:
On a conference call on Tuesday, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said the league will imprint “End racism” and “It takes all of us” in the end zones at each stadium during the 2020 season.

SNIP:
We’re eight days from the start of professional football, and it’s clear my beloved National Football League will follow the NBA’s path of turning its games into shrines for Black Lives Matter.

Tuesday, in a joint news conference, commissioner Roger Goodell and his top black assistant, Troy Vincent, publicly announced their capitulation to BLM, aka, Bigots Love Marxism.

There’s so much wrong with Goodell’s statement that I hardly know where to begin.

He stands with the black community? The white kids burning down Portland and Seattle under the pretense of black lives mattering represent the black community?

Confronting recent systemic racism? There’s no proof George Floyd’s death had anything to do with his race. None. Same goes for Jacob Blake. Breonna Taylor? According to an excellent longform story in the New York Times, on the night of Taylor’s death Louisville police executed four separate raids related to the drug case involving Taylor and her ex-boyfriend. There was gunfire at just one of the raids, and that was sparked by Taylor’s new boyfriend firing at and hitting a police officer first.

You could argue there’s systemic overreaction to criminal resistance by law enforcement, but it’s nearly impossible to trace the overreaction to race.


I’ve yet to mention Vincent’s most infuriating comment. He defended his push to get NFL owners to embrace BLM by referencing his Christian faith.

“I ask my Lord and savior Jesus Christ to allow me to be a bridge builder,” Vincent said. “And I try to stay on the premise of educating, whether that’s a player or a club owner. I just speak to humanity.”

Black Lives Matter is founded in Marxism. It’s founders have publicly acknowledged they’re trained in Marxist political theory. Karl Marx was an atheist who preached religion is the opiate of the oppressed. Marxism, communism and socialism all are hostile toward religion.

Vincent is building a bridge to satan.


Blake, Floyd and Taylor are victims of their own bad decision-making coupled with the flawed decision-making of police. In a righteous society, bad decisions do not create heroes. They spawn victims and losers.

It’s all a failure of leadership. Roger Goodell and Troy Vincent want to save their jobs, huge salaries and protect their safety more than they want to do what’s right for the NFL and our country.

They don’t want the violent BLM and Antifa protesters outside their homes, offices and stadiums. They fear the possibility of the social media mob calling for their removal because they know their corporate allies in the media and business sector won’t stand on principle either.

Cowardice-2020 is the real pandemic.

I still see all of this as PR efforts, perhaps bad PR efforts, but nothing more.  And perhaps for every viewer offended by this stuff, other viewers are attracted.  (I don't think that, I think most viewers of the NFL etc. are middle class white folks who tend not to be especially "woke".)

I personally don't mind the "end racism" call in the EZ, fine with me, except that it COULD become a necessary tradition to label EZs with whatever flavor du jour happens to be, save the whales, end pollution, whatever ...

And a few short years ago they were against the display of John 3-16, symbols to show they support the police. Bet they still would be.

The sewer is taking over main street and people rejoice. Sad

EA Sports announces that “Colin Kaepernick will be featured in Madden 21 for the first time since 2016,” and gives him “a Higher Madden Rating than Half the NFL Starting Quarterbacks.” And will he be wearing his cops-as-pigs socks and pro-Castro T-shirt in the videogame?

Pete Carroll is nothing. An absolute piece of crap

I don't have a problem with being more educated about racism, presuming said education is even handed and accurate.
