Not Tired of Winning Yet XLII

I am not a sports guy. I care nothing for sports, and I simply do not have the gene that can make me care about them. But, like a colorblind man who respects the ability of his fellowmen to admire rainbows and sunsets, I admire the qualities of team spirit, fan loyalty, sportsmanship and fairplay which athletic sports in a healthy society encourage and create. (In an unhealthy society, winning becomes an idol, and sportsmanship is discouraged in favor of winning for its own sake, boasting, egotism and insolence. See Cassius Clay aka Muhammad Ali for details.)

It is not my world. Nonetheless, it is with elation that I can report another win for Donald. J. Trump:

The NFL will enact a national anthem policy for 2018 that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced Wednesday.

1. All team and league personnel on the field shall stand and show respect for the flag and the anthem.

2.The Game Operations Manual will be revised to remove the requirement that all players be on the field for the anthem.

3. Personnel who choose not to stand for the anthem may stay in the locker room or in a similar location off the field until after the anthem has been performed.

4. A club will be fined by the League if its personnel are on the field and do not stand and show respect for the flag and the anthem.

5. Each club may develop its own work rules, consistent with the above principles, regarding its personnel who do not stand and show respect for the flag and the anthem.

6. The commissioner will impose appropriate discipline on league personnel who do not stand and show respect for the flag and the anthem.

Short version: if you hate the flag of your country that make you a rich-as-Croesus spoiled brat sports star, you can keep your ugly mug in the locker room, but you cannot show your hatred in public without a fine.

Chalk this win to Trump. Can you imagine, under Hillary, that this issue would have even seen the light of day?

Now, keep in mind the Left hate the NFL for the same reason they hate the Boy Scouts, and they hate unborn babies. It is the same reason Gollum hates sunlight.

In the atheist, nihilist universe of the Left,  anything that makes a moral demand on you to be a better man must be desecrated and destroyed. This includes things such as sportsmanship, or the Scout Law, or the duty of mother to child. This includes beauty in art, honesty in science, or anything that reminds you of  universe larger, finer, brighter and greater than the empty and sick worldview of the nihilist. Remember, that in the nihilist world, there is no truth, no goodness, no final happiness. All roads end in misery, failure, and death. Their world is preoccupied with one thing and one thing only: a victimhood narrative. In this narrative, you are not to blame for your sins. Someone else is to blame. He is the oppressor. For communists, he is the capitalist, for feminist, he is the male, for Nazis, he is the Jew, for race-baiters, he is the white man, for Alt-right, he is the cuck. He is the one to blame for all woes. He is the one keeping you down.

He cannot be reasoned with: you  are locked in an remorseless and unrelenting Darwinian struggle for power with him, and if he prevails, he will destroy you, and if you prevail, you must destroy him. There is no choice, no peace, no point in talking.

That is the dreary, hateful, hatred-filled, endlessly petty and endlessly dishonest world of the Left. You are living life on Death Row. There is no hope. No messiah will save you; no prayer are answered.

In such a world, there are only two possible motivations for any act: the first is self pleasure. You should be free to copulate with anyone and anything to your hearts content, or intoxicate yourself into wonderful oblivion. The second is the endless war. Only empowerment matters. Every act must be to gain and hold power. Every slur and slight and insult is due to an enemy with power greater than yours inflicting his will on you. You only escape is to inflict your will on him.

In such a world, there is no room for mother love. It is a world of abortion. There is no room for obeying the scout law or learning how to be a brave young man prepared for emergencies. It is a world where girls and ‘transgendered’ persons are allowed to be boy scouts and Eagle Scouts, and serve under sodomite scoutmasters, but Mormons must be cast aside. It is a world where the players’ right to insult the flag trumps the ideas of good sportsmanship, fair play, and common decency.

You see, the Left does not care for mothers, for Boy Scouts, or for the National Football League. They hate those things. Not contempt, not indifference, not condescension. Hatred. They wish to destroy them.

Their selected means is white blackmail: asking the victim to engage in self-destructive behavior, losing money and losing public support, until you no longer exist, all in the name of some allegedly higher morality of the Left, based on the principle of tolerationdiversityhopeandchangeblahblahblah.

Trump saved the NFL from itself. Score for our side. The Boy Scouts? Probably too late.

As for motherhoood?

Family planning clinics that refer patients for abortions or share locations or finances with abortion providers will be ineligible for funding through a decades-old federal family planning program, the Trump administration announced Tuesday.

No, my friends. I am not tired of winning yet.
