Gentry’s Critique of Beyoncé: Yes, indeed: what if they HAD flown the Confederate Flag at the Superbowl? (I might have watched, for one thing)….

Listen to some profound words of truth and fairness by a VERY smart guy:

Anyone who knows me even slightly would know that I’d rather have four root canals than watch a professional football game all the way through (all four quarters). I have hated the fanaticism of football religion ever since I was a kid. And I do mean both “World” Football and American Football. But Super Bowl? It actually inspired me to work on the Sabbath just to separate myself from the television glued crowd. I consider Football worship to be one of the ultimate and worst forms of degenerate depravity in the service of the collapse of Western Civilization, and insult to Christianity, a glorification of money and sex and non-European peoples…. and this is just the beginning of what I think of Football and Super Bowl Sunday. I’d say that football is exactly one-notch up from pro-rape rap music.

Jeff Crow Wow! I take it u feel passionately about this topic. lol

I sort of hear ya on that…but remember, football was created by the opposite groups you’re upset about. And the greatest teams are still from the 70’s-90’s as are the greatest players. It’s th…See More

Charles Edward Lincoln I was a kid in the 1960s, becoming a teenager in the 1970s, in Dallas, and so I remember Tom Landry and the Dallas Cowboys very well. But I saw then what I see now: obsession with sports has replaced Church on Sunday (did you know that most Church services in the 16th-19th centuries began in the afternoon, and sometimes lasted three to four hours? The Germans were the ones who took it the farthest, preaching from 10-4….

Talk about a sacrilegious impossibility now… I feel like this is parallel to a discussion one might have about Neo-Con vs. Palaeoconservative Ideology. 1970s football of the era of Nixon and Kissinger and Reagan….being the Neocons…. Organized sports originated and developed almost simultaneously with Big Corporations in America and England.

The concept of team playing is psychologically consistent with corporate suppression of individual as opposed to group enterprise.

The first “teams” were rowing teams at Harvard and Yale in the 1840s. I confess I did some rowing in my Ivy years…. Good arm exercise, I miss it…

But PROFESSIONAL SPORTS didn’t really come into vogue until the late 19th Century—the Robber Baron Era—Fed by Government Contracts and Subsidies like gigantic land grants and resource “Concessions”…. monopolies in other words….

And professional football was a creature of the 1950s—the birth of television, the heyday of Madison Avenue advertising. The football franchises and leagues…. all creatures of the televised world, all intimately evolved with advertising and taking the minds and leisure hours away from thinking about God and positive politics or social conscience—Public Issues—Professional Sports are a creature of Consumerist Society—Re-read Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World….

Man…. I do feel passionately about this issue.

Sports ARE ten times the Opiate of the Masses—Religion inspires people (sometimes) to behave in a moral way and do very good things. Sports from the Golden Era of the 1970s-1990s you’re talking inspired O.J. Simpson to get an A-grade model beauty for his white wife and then kill her….. and get acquitted of murder on the criminal charges anyhow….

Professional Sports was part of the master plan to integrate society in the 1950s and break down the race barrier, to degrade women as mere sex objects (cheer leaders, “pseudo prostitutes” as Joss Whedon had one of his characters say in an early season of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” in the 1990s).

The salaries paid professional sports stars is one of the sources of false dreaming in the U.S.—- people want something for nothing, every guy wants to be a multi-millionaire football star, every girl wants to be a Kardashian hanging out with one….

So do you think I’m wrong about any of these perspectives? If so, tell me…

Charles Edward Lincoln I tend to think that was the PURPOSE of football—Sundays used to be a day to reflect on right and wrong, on the difference between good and evil in private and public life. Now it’s a day for men to chug beer and wish they had million dollar salaries which require no thinking….and get them laid twenty times a day if they are so inclined…..

I am contemplating setting up a Meetup: Who would be interested in a full and open forum about Race-Relations in Los Angeles and Southern California?
Meetup is going to invite potential Racially Conscious Americans to

Race, Lies, and American Politics: Southern California 2014
Description:

Is lying about Race Relations the American Way? In this “Summer of Our Discontent” places like “Ferguson” and “Gaza” are very much on our minds. A year ago it was Trayvon Martin. For several years, immigration across the border has been on our minds. So have race relations become more tense or better since Barack Hussein Obama became President? Do we even dare to talk about it? Or are certain topics taboo? Are we becoming a dishonest nation? Will be open to everyone who can engage in civil, intelligent (non-violent) discussion of RACE. Are you: Interested in the Police Abuse in the USA? Ferguson? the Black Panthers? La Raza Unida? Fascism or Neo-Nazi Race Issues? Israeli Politics? The Fate of White South Africa? Jim Crow in the USA? Can you discuss these issues with the calm of LA Magazine, whose cover story in May 2012 was:
“Race In L.A.
Twenty years after the riots, the city has a different complexion. So what does race mean anymore? Everything
Posted on 5/1/2012 12:00:00 PM by Los Angeles magazine

Ours is a city of many voices and cultures, of disparate backgrounds and conflicting interests. Twenty years ago this month, those fault lines ruptured. Whether you call it an uprising, a riot, or civil unrest, what happened on April 29, 1992, changed Los Angeles and the people in it, prompting Rodney King to famously ask, “Can we all get along?” We still want the answer to be yes. But it’s complicated.

Everyone who’s interested, please write me here or call either 504-777-5021 or 504-777-5023.

A New Double Standard of Olympian Dimensions: Was anyone ever removed from the Olympics or forced off a team for being a Communist? Even athletes with a HINT of association with Conservative European parties are forced off but Left Wing Revolutionaries are honored?

Nadja Drygalla, who stepped down rather than humiliate her country’s team in the Olympics, BECAUSE OF HER BOYFRIEND, was unjustly victimized by political correctness: http://de.nachrichten.yahoo.com/de-maizière-stellt-ruderin-nadja-drygalla-112005779.html?fr=fp-tts-708&fr2=ps (my own translation from German here):

De Maiziere stands behind rower Nadja Drygalla
“We have no cause to investigate anything here”

In the neo-Nazi scandal involving the German Olympic rowing champion Nadia Drygalla, German Federal Minister of Defence …

In the neo-Nazi “scandal” involving the German Olympic rowing champion Nadia Drygalla, Federal Defence Minister Thomas de Maiziere (CDU) called for greater restraint and less prejudgment. The case raises the question of drawing boundaries around the right to privacy: when does the government check the circle of friends of athletes? de Maiziere told reporters in London.  He believes that this legitimate boundary has been exceeded in the case Drygalla. “We have no cause to investigate anything here,” said de Maiziere.  We have learned to move very cautiously in such cases.
De Maiziere did not rule out that the army could take the 23-year-old in their sports activities.  Currently there is no application pending. If there were, such an application would be considered in the normal manner.  In the past week Drygalla had left the Olympic Games in London after it was revealed that her boyfriend is Michael Fischer, a former parliamentary candidate of the far-right NPD.
Fisher, however, in May resigned from the NPD. This was confirmed by the country’s parliamentary group deputy chairman for the far-right party, Stefan Köster, according to a party spokesman in Schwerin. A spokesman for the Interior Ministry of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern said, however, on request, that the ministry possessed “no positive evidence that Mr. Fischer has actually withdrawn from the NPD.” A few days ago the Ministry had described Fisher as an example of the close interaction between the NPD and the extreme right-wing fraternities. Fisher also appears to have played a leading role in the group known as, “National Socialists Rostock”.”

If the following yahoo.com article is to be believed, 2012 is the first time in modern Olympic history that athletes have ever been disqualified on grounds of direct or indirect Political Party affiliation or Philosophy of any kind:

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/top-10-disqualified-summer-olympians-history-135800628–oly.html

One just has to wonder whether it’s really fair….  Political vetting at the last minute, while the supposedly “international” games are going on?   The Olympics have become a complete sham, and an insult to the concepts of Freedom of Though and Social Justice.   I submit that JUSTICE REQUIRES that every award ever granted to a member of the Communist Party from ANY COUNTRY should be reversed and historically declared a nullity.   It is well known that the Soviet Union and all of the Eastern Block Countries (including Romania, China, Korea, and Vietnam) have permanent government-sponsored training for Olympians, making a mockery of the concept of “Amateur” “Non-Professional” Athletics….

German rower leaves London after reported ties to neo-Nazis surface

By Maggie Hendricks | Fourth-Place Medal – 

(Getty)Nadja Drygalla, a German rower who already competed at the Olympics, is on her way home from London a bit earlier than she intended. Drygalla decided to leave the Games after reports surfaced that she is connected to a neo-Nazi group in Germany.

[ Video: Jesse Owens’ courageous achievement]

Drygalla’s boyfriend is reportedly a leader of the Rostock National Socialists, a group German intelligence describes as neo-Nazi and racist.

“Miss Drygalla confirmed credibly her commitment to the Olympic Charter,” the head of Germany’s committeeMichael Vesper said. “She is leaving the Olympic Village so as not to be a burden for the team.”

Drygalla is a member of Germany’s women’s eight. Her team was eliminated in the repechage round.

This isn’t the first time Drygalla has been connected to Germany’s far-right. According to German broadcaster DW, she was connected to another neo-Nazi in March of 2011. This forced her to resign from the Mecklenburg-Western Pomeranian police force.

Greek triple jumper Voula Papachristou was expelled by her national organizing committee before the Olympics began for making a racist comment on Twitter. Likewise, a Swiss soccer player was removed from his team for comments about the South Korean team. The difference between Drygalla and the other two is the German organizing committee said she is still in line with the Olympic ideal. She made the choice to leave because of the distraction it could bring to the German Olympians.

More Olympics coverage on Yahoo! Sports Canada:

 Now, this same article included a video http://ca.sports.yahoo.com/video/raised-fists-medal-stand-1968-051152110.html  At the Olympics in Mexico City in 1968, two black athletes Raised their fists in “Black Power” (aka “Black Panther”) Salutes in Protest Against the Policies of the American government during the Presidency of Lyndon Baines Johnson.  Now this is more than slightly ironic because LBJ was the President who signed more “affirmative action” race-based legislation than any other President in history, including Abraham Lincoln [who signed almost none] and Barack Obama [who has signed absolutely none], and these athletes have monuments built to them at San Jose State University and are celebrated in the History Books.

Why would Athletes who belong to Patriotic Minority Right Wing Political Parties in Europe be an embarrassment to their teams when Left Wingers like these never were?  Could it be that the Olympian Ideals of the modern world are set by Communists?  Only Blacks can have race-based minority political views but whites cannot?

Of course, there were many political disturbances throughout the world in 1968 and Mexico City was only one venue for such protests.  Chicago and Paris also saw major left-wing riots in 1968.  NONE of the Conservative/Right Wing Athletes from Germany, Greece, or Switzerland who have been publicly humiliated and singled out in 2012 had disturbed the peace or disgraced the games or insulted their country EXCEPT by their private political views.

This last German Rower Nadja Drygalla is not even alleged to BE a Neo-Nazi—she merely likes to date them—why don’t they publish the list of boyfriends and girlfriends of all the Athletes and their political or social or religious affiliations?   I find this all just so totally appalling and disgraceful to the very over-commercialized face of the Olympics.  Nobody was disqualified from the 1936 Olympics in Berlin for being a Nazi and nobody before or since, so far as I know, has ever been disqualified from any team for being a community.  Paraskevi (Voula) Papachristou was disqualified from the Greek Team because of her membership in Golden Dawn, which recently polled 6.92-6.97% of the vote in the last two elections in her country (and won 18 seats in Parliament), yet this is decidedly more than any African-American nationalist candidate has ever polled in the United States (and no, I REALLY don’t count Barack Hussein Obama—he’s not really American and he’s an international socialist—anything BUT a nationalist—he claims to have been born in the United States but his father’s heritage is clearly Kenyan—and his mother’s overtly communist).   The Swiss Soccer Player Michel Morganella who was disqualified basically made a rude comment about a Korean—and none of the other athletes have ever made any rude comments about their competition?
