The NFL Protests Continue. Why Doesn’t Goodell Stop this Unpatriotic Disrespectful Spectacle? Because He Doesn’t Want to.
The left has got this game in its sights. I have warned everybody about this. When I do, people think I’m a nut, a kook. “Nobody can bring down the NFL, what are you talking about, Rush? You see politics in everything and you think that these political forces on the left have the ability to bring about change.” What in the world is happening to our culture, folks? The left targets something it doesn’t like and they never give up and they keep going until they ruin it. And I’m telling you, National Football League is in their crosshairs right now. – Rush Limbaugh, September 10, 2014
Yesterday, as what is left of their national audience watched, the so-called “professionals” of the National Football League continued their inappropriate, unpatriotic, and disrespectful behavior during the playing of our Sovereign Nation’s National Anthem.
Why is this continuing?
Because the CEO of this Private Organization is allowing it.
Charlie Goodell was a pipe-chewing liberal Republican appointed to the Senate after Robert Kennedy was murdered. He staged a series of insurrections against the GOP. The biggest had him walking arm-in-arm with Coretta Scott King and George McGovern during the Vietnam Moratorium. This activated Nixon’s enemy-slaying machine. During Goodell’s ’70 election campaign, Nixon threw his not-so-tacit support to the third-party conservative candidate; vice-president Spiro Agnew called Goodell the “Christine Jorgensen of the Republican Party”; Henry Kissinger whispered dirty thoughts into his secret recording system (“I despise Goodell”). Goodell finished third in a three-man race.
Roger Goodell was 11 years old on that Election Day. If I can play pop psychologist, I’d guess that event is his Rosebud. He admired Charlie Goodell’s idealism and still keeps a copy of his out-of-Vietnam speech in his NFL office. But the son had a different playbook than the father. Roger Goodell would never be outflanked by his enemies. He would rarely stray from the company line. He would accumulate power rather than challenge it — he would be the strongman, not the insurgent. -Brian Curtis, Grantland.com, September 12, 2014
Back on November 10, 2016, just two days after average Americans elected Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America, cnn.com posted the following article…
One of many Americans shaken by the election of Donald Trump as president is NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who said Thursday that he was struggling to explain his victory to the women in his family. Asked whether his job was harder with Trump’s ascension, at a DealBook conference in New York, Goodell pivoted to how it challenged his home life.
“It makes my job harder at home, too,” Goodell said. “I have twin daughters and a wife, so I have to explain that to them. So, that’s yes on that front.”
Trump has been critical of the NFL commissioner, who became a lightning rod for controversy when the league suspended Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in the “Deflategate” scandal. Trump has claimed the Patriots quarterback as a major supporter.
Goodell nevertheless heralded how both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama had handled themselves in the wake of Tuesday’s upset.
“I think our country has to have more respect for one another, and we have to unite. I saw some very positive signs of that yesterday,” he said. “We have to unite. We have to address some of the issues and work together. President-elect Trump is our president, so let’s get behind him.”
Before the beginning of the NFL’s 2017-2018 Season, it appears to this average American that those same Liberals whom Rush Limbaugh spoke about in 2014, had spoken to Commissioner Goodell concerning giving said “professionals” the freedom to exercise their “First Amendment Rights” during the course of Game Day Activities.
It is now quite apparent to anyone with a lick of common sense that this organized protest by the NFL Players has NEVER been about “Police Brutality” against black Americans.
It has always been about Donald J. Trump being elected the President of the United States of America.
Just like the “New Bolsheviks” which have been paid by Billionaire Financier and Far Left Activist George Soros and others to stage “spontaneous” protests since the night of November 8, 2016, these ongoing protests by the NFL Players are designed to humiliate the president in the eyes of the world and to somehow force his departure from office.
As I wrote last week, the problem with these protests, and what makes them different from the others, including those thrown by the fascists of Antifa, is the fact that the NFL is a Private Organization and the players are violating the rules of that organization by protesting ON THE JOB.
The NFL Chapter of the “New Bolsheviks” does not seem to comprehend that they are in the process of slitting their own throats, monetarily. NFL Revenues were down 18% last week and continue to fall as these concussion-prone athletes parade their political ideology in front of an audience who did not wish to see or hear about it in the first place.
It appears to this average American, that if Goodell does not put his big boy pants on, leave his SJW Brand of Liberalism at home, and stop the financial bleeding of the NFL immediately by forbidding the NFL Players from protesting on Company time, Goodell will go down in history as the LAST COMMISSIONER OF THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE.
Until He Comes,
