First off I used to date a Jet and trust me, he was no multi millionaire. I also dated a pro hokey player same shit and a boxer. None of them multi millionaires.Uncle Grandfather wrote: ↑Sun Sep 09, 2018 10:12 pmThere's some key differences here. In the case of the NFL players kneeling, it's pretty hilarious because these guys are all millionaires and are incredibly out of touch with the average Joe (much like celebrities). Also the NFL portrays itself as a "patriotic" organization that supports veterans, and most football fans are, let's face it, middle aged white men of whom >50% probably voted for Trump. But at the end of he day, it's sports for Christ's sake, keep the politics out of it. Let these guys who had everything handed to them in a silver platter in college voice their "woke" opinions online, but don't let it interfere with the game.
Alex Jones wasn't just banned from Twitter, but was mass-banned across all social media platforms in what looks like a joint effort from the Silicon Valley giants. It's also immensely hypocritical too because these platforms all claim to be arbiters of free speech but let crazy, unhinged voices on the left go unfettered.
By the way, can you elaborate on this "social injustice?"
Most actors also are not multi millionaires
Someone’s celebrity status and financial background shouldn’t dictate if they have something to say politically.
You don’t stop having an opinion about politics and the world because your famous or wealthy.
Now I would imagine that they feel a responsibility to the communities they cane out of due to their blessed lives to say something. I don’t know, to me that’s kind of admirable. Like they didn’t forget where they came from.
Another point is pro athletes over the years have been picked up and pulled over. There was one a few months ago. So they didn’t stop being black because they have money.
As far as the NFL and the patriotism it’s ‘fake’ it’s marketing bullshit. So I don’t know why it’s relevant.
The principle is when liberals boycott republicans lose their minds (laura Ingram bill oreilley)
When alt right boycott its ‘patriotism’
What it is, is hypocrisy.
