The charming but thoroughly deluded youngsters over at Marginally Honorable Chairman, in their latest profanity laden but logic-light podcast, ranted and raved about some imagined slight perpetrated on their honor, their independence and their entertainment pleasures by the big fat meanie Ace, at AoSHQ. It’s a hysterical overreaction to several suggestions from Ace (and one suggestion from me) that we should boycott the NFL and some of the other purveyors of popular culture pablum.
Apparently the mere suggestion that we as conservatives should stop supporting the NFL is beyond the pale. Never mind that the league has publicly rejected the revolutionary idea that perhaps the five murdered Dallas police officers be honored by that city’s football team, but Colin Kaepernick should be lauded as a brave man who is speaking truth to power!
Never mind that purchasing that ticket or watching it on TV or at the stadium they are funding the very destruction of the nation that they rail against. And buying those Marvel movie tickets puts money in the pockets of people who work hard to destroy everything they hold dear.
Their specious claim that by disengaging they lose their voice is absolutely ridiculous. Their voice is in their wallets. Any other interpretation is childish and naive. And it is ignorant and dangerous to pretend that just because they don’t want to politicize huge swaths of American culture, that others feel the same way. The NFL is tightly linked to the SJW movement, to Democrat politics and goals, and support of the NFL is support of those goals. Everything they do is viewed through the lens of political expediency and political correctness.
Oh…it gets better. Our suggestions that withholding some of our hard-earned cash from the NFL is akin to Black Lives Matter. No, really! One of these foul-mouthed wretches made the connection. Wow.
No one is shaming anyone or damning anyone for not “obeying” orders to “boycott or else.” People are free to do as they wish, but by stating that patronizing Hollywood and Big Sports is in fact funding the very destruction we rail against is some sort of personal attack on one’s freedom to choose is risible at best, and at worst, distorting our position and putting words in our mouths. And that is unacceptable.
But listen to the podcast…at least the parts where they are completely unhinged and misinterpreting pretty much everything that Ace (and I) have said.
