Note: Normal people might find some of this offensive. (We hope. Dear Lord, please!)






Back in August, I warned that the left was engaging in a cultural revolution similar to the one in China in the 1960s-’70s. Sports fans now know what I mean.
The left isn’t at war just with statues. Or just with the Founders or police officers or Trump or even the NFL. The left is trying to overturn everything it doesn’t like about America, all at once.
Here’s the thing, the left doesn’t like America. Many alt-lefties actually hate America and everything our nation has done or stands for. Remember, the left is an amalgam of victim groups who feel The Man (™) has kept them down.
Sean Diddy Combs tweeted out a video of one athlete explaining why he was protesting. Here’s an actual Diddy quote: “This shit breaks my heart that mother fuckers want to keep their foots on our necks!!! God bless you brother and thank you for your candor.” Yes, Diddy thinks someone(s) are keeping their feet on his neck.
Diddy is worth $820 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Michael Thomas, a New Orleans Saints safety who was in the video, is set to earn $1,797,000. Admittedly, that’s not Diddy numbers, but it’s still about equal to what 33 whole households in the U.S. earn. And Buffalo running back LeSean McCoy, who said, “our president is a asshole” and did stretching exercises during the anthem, has a net worth of $14 million and a contract worth $41.55 million.
I don’t actually resent any of that money. (Especially McCoy, who helped me win the MRC fantasy football league last year.) But multimillionaires complaining about how hard life is when their fan base struggles to pay for tickets is outlandish. Waiting on the book, “NFL Players Are From Mars … And Fans Wish They’d Stay There.”
But the hell with the fans, right? The alt-left wants more protest. It wants the white players to protest the anthem and flag as well. And the reason they don’t? “White privilege.” According to HuffPost contributor Jesse Benn, “White Athletes Still Standing For The Anthem Are Standing For White Supremacy.” Jesse is, of course, “currently working on his Ph.D and as a teaching assistant in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Wisconsin – Madison.” (Note to self, don’t interview job candidates from the University of Wisconsin -- Madison unless they apologize about going there.)
Actual quote: “See, for white athletes the anthem and American flag do represent freedom, liberty and whatever other amorphous American values one might ascribe these symbols. So, from their view, kneeling would be disrespectful to the privileges a white supremacist nation affords them.”
Let’s be honest here. If Jesse wants to talk privilege, there is no more privileged group in the world than celebrities -- actors, entertainers, athletes and, yes, politicians. They all have power, money, fancy homes, groupies, influence and fame that ordinary people can barely imagine. That applies to celebrities of all races and genders.
Would ESPN’s Jamele Hill still have a job if she were a white conservative guy named Curt Schilling? Nope, ESPN fired him. Would Beyoncé, Lena Dunham, Demi Lovato or George Clooney have been sought out by the Hillary Clinton campaign if they didn’t have fame and cash that would aid her? Nope. Again, stars often worked hard for that fame. But don’t pretend it doesn’t put them in an elite category. Don’t pretend that they are doing anything other than talking down to America like the rest of us are the great unwashed.
Which takes us to this week’s goodies:
