Now comes a real conspiracy crisis from the Patriots organization. I now know what some of you went through with the off-pressure balls, except this incident is an affront to real rights. Vox Day explores the Peter King-Robert Kraft assault on the Second Amendment.
i. Gesture of the Week: Patriots owner Robert Kraft providing his team plane to fly students and families from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School to Washington on Thursday, and then back home, after Saturday’s massive rally against gun violence.
j. No matter your politics, that’s a wonderful thing Kraft did. Because no matter what your politics, it is downright insane that semi-automatic killing machines, such as the kind that killed 17 people at the Florida high school, can be owned by average American citizens.
I emailed Mr. King in response to his foray into gun control activism, and would encourage you to send him a similar message.
In response to your public support for violating American rights, I remind you of the words of Samuel Adams.
“We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
Go to Mexico. Go to Canada. Go and live somewhere else, because you are not an American. There are literally dozens of other countries without the 2nd Amendment. Go live in one of them if you fear Americans exercising their unalienable rights, because you are not one of us.
“You are not one of us” and “you have to go back” are two of the most effective rhetorical killshots you can utilize against an SJW, because they weigh on the SJW’s constant subconscious fear of being rejected. It’s not a coincidence that these are considered to be some of Sam Adams’s most memorable words.
No, I will not email Mr. King nor Kraft. I don’t willingly waste time in discourse with communists and the mentally ill. But I do appreciate knowing what they really think of us and of our freedoms.
Know that when King writes, “average American citizens” he really means, “peasants and serfs.” Thanks, jackass. Now get out. Take Kraft, Hogg, and as many more commies as you can cram on those private jets and leave.
No matter your politics, if you are sane, and rational, and know how to read, and do rudimentary math, you realize that those “semi-automatic killing machines” save lives. And they’re safer, in terms of murder, than baseball bats, knives, and hands. If not, then no matter your politics (and we can guess about those), then consider doing as Vox and Adams suggested: just go away.
Go try one of of those other 100+ countries where they have far fewer guns than we have here. Yes, they all have much worse gun murder rates. But that’s a project you can tackle, work you can do – somewhere else.
Friends, these people hate freedom, America, the Second Amendment, “average” citizens, you and me. Their kraft would have us bow to a king. It’s contra to our interest to support these types of haters. Brady received a four-game suspension for the balls. Maybe a suspension for the duration of Kraft’s ownership is in order. This would be a huge and hard leap for an Patriots fan. But something to think about.
PS: Maybe Kraft should change the name. How about the New England Treason? Traitors? Kapos?
The Patriots win. Again.
I said the Patriots would be in SB LI. They were. I said they’d beat the … ? … whoever they beat last year. They did. Then, last year, immediately after that predictable victory, I said the people in Boston were serious about coming back this year, this month, tomorrow. (Consult the Feb. 2017 archives for that and so much more). They meant it and they did it. They’re serious about winning again too. They will.
Still got some seats left! At a bargain price… ESPN.
And, still they won’t be finished. I’ve said previously that Brady and Co. would win number six to tie the Steelers for all-time wins and then win no. 7 for the record. I’m not sure 7 will follow 6 in succession next year but anything’s possible. Then, this particular dynasty might (might…) be finished. Time will tell. It’s also telling that Brady, Gisele’s alleged protestations aside, also predicts 2 more SB wins.
*Last year I ran some memes about the Falcons and their “heartbreaking” loss, which I commenced dropping before they actually lost. It now occurs to me that eagles and falcons are near aviary twins. So, I could repeat the memes, merely striking one for the other, name-wise. I won’t. I’m not that cruel and it’s not necessary.*
There’s a reason for all this, for the unstoppable perfection. I covered that pretty well last year for SB LI. A few days ago I heard some sports commentator expound that even the Pats haters should take a moment to appreciate the uniqueness of what we’ve witnessed these past two decades out of NE; it’s something special in sports history. Most won’t and that’s okay. In fact, it may be better so.
One of the two positions must be true: 1) either the Pats don’t notice and/or don’t care about the opposition opinions, or; 2) they feed off of it. If it’s the later, then there’s a lot of food for the feast: it really is New England vs. The World.
BOSTON (CBS) – “New England vs. Everybody” is more than just a shirt – it’s reality, according to a new poll.
A survey from Monmouth University finds that 37 percent of Americans are rooting for the Philadelphia Eagles to win Super Bowl LII, compared to just 16 percent who want another Patriots championship.
If you hate them down now, they will become more powerful than you could possibly imagine…
Powerful like tomorrow evening. 28 – 24, NE.
PS: as noted at FP News this week, this could also be the H3N2 Flu Bowl…
I must admit, I am a minor league illuminati watcher. Usually my concern centers around powers seeking to influence the government. At other times I comment on the culture. Sometimes the two intersect.
There are some I consider Big Show illuminati watchers. And I respect them on average. Evil is real and it always seeks to corrupt. It’s important to monitor and guard against that. However, some get carried away. Sometimes they get it wrong. Or, maybe it is that i just don’t see what they do.
Here’s a contemporary example:
Lady Gaga nearly rocked the roof off the NRG Stadium during Super Bowl LI. Initially, I was concerned about PC intrusion into her halftime show. I worry a lot… But, I didn’t see it. Some did. I did not. Some tried to “body shame” her. I sure as heck didn’t see that. Now, Alex Jones and Co. claim the whole show was a Satanic ritual designed to mesmerize and indoctrinate the masses.
I just didn’t see that – and I looked for it. So much of pop culture revolves around the occult that it’s frequently impossible to miss. Still, I did not see it with Gaga. Now, just yesterday, I helped break Gaga-Gate with the esteemed assistance of Mohamed Sanu: Gaga colluded with Coach B. to bend time, giving the Pats a transquantum advantage – the only rational explanation of how the Falcons could have possibly lost.
Given Gaga-Gate and what Jones said, I was determined to go back and re watch the show for signs of the supernatural. I still did not see his concern. But, I did see something! This something is most unusual. It gives Gaga-Gate a twist no one (expect maybe Sanu) could have predicted. What I discovered is utterly insane. Let me outline this for you:
The Super Bowl was played between the New England Patriots (victors, naturally) and the Atlanta Falcons. The game was played at the NRG in Houston, Texas, home of the Houston Texans. Got that: New England, Atlanta, Houston. Now. Check this out:
The following pics are from the Gaga show, which you can watch HERE.
In this picture from the show’s opening one can plainly see Troy Aikman and Dak Prescott sitting in Sec. 103, row 16, seats 6 and 7 (circled in red). Both are laughing maniacally. What’s that all about?!
Next, as Gaga descends from the rooftop, she passes directly under a single star (yeah, right, Texas “flag”).
The whole field was covered with blue stars.
Those blue stars remind you of anything? And, here one last bit of conclusive proof:
That male dancer who carried the lovely Gaga, Frankenstein-style (in front of another giant blue star, by the way)? That was Roger Staubach’s grandson!
I think you get the picture now. The entire 14-minute show (40-min by Sanu’s reckoning) was a huge Dallas Cowboys propaganda hit piece!
The most insidious thing in the annals of the NFL and television. I’m speechless…
Thank God we know now just how the Falcons lost in such spectacular fashion. It wasn’t the Russians. It wasn’t Trump. The electoral college had nothing to do with it. The KKK was not involved. And it certainly wasn’t a lack of talent and discipline when facing a vastly superior team. No.
It was Lady Gaga. Atlanta WR Mohamed Sanu (rhymes with coo coo) explains:
Wide receiver Mohamed Sanu told the NFL Network’s Good Morning Football on Friday that Lady Gaga’s 40-minute halftime performance “definitely did” impact the team’s play in the second half.
“Usually, halftime is only like 15 minutes, and when you’re not on the field for like an hour, it’s just like going to work out, like a great workout, and you go sit on the couch for an hour and then try to start working out again,” Sanu said on the NFL Network, via by CBS Sports.
Sanu said he doesn’t “know if you can simulate something like” the lengthy halftime break.
Leading up to past Super Bowl appearances, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has had his team stop for a half hour in the middle of practice to simulate the halftime performance.
Bill was cheating again. Neither the Falcons, nor any other team, could ever simulate a halftime break during their practices. Unthinkable. Bill. Cheating. Again. Heck, I’ll bet he messed with the time-space continuum in order to warp the Pats straight through halftime – probably in cahoots with Gaga. Gaga-gate. Five game suspension!
Gaga frantically communicates with Belichick via “hidden mic” earpiece as Sanu catches on…. Getty.
This is pitiful and delusional even by Loserville standards. They’ll have a hard time topping that after the Pats win SB LII next year.
Steel. That emotional control I wrote about earlier. A steely resolve to do the impossible.
From the Boston Herald:
Tom Brady and the Patriots rewrote the history books and the storylines last night with their epic, 34-28 victory against the Falcons in Super Bowl LI. They trailed 28-3 midway through the third quarter before ripping off the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history. Prior to this, the Pats’ 10-point comeback two years ago against the Seahawks had set the bar.
Tom Brady completed 43 of 62 passes for 466 yards, two touchdowns and an interception, and he was 12 of 16 for 150 yards on the tying and winning drives in the fourth quarter and overtime. The five-time champion led his 51st game-winning drive in the 51st Super Bowl.
I read in the Boston or sporting press somewhere the “grading” of the team. “A” for Brady. “B” for coaching. “Cs” for the defense. I guess “B” stands for “bravo” and “Cs” stands for “Champions”.
First come-from-behind from more than 10 points win in Super Bowl history.
First Super Bowl in overtime.
Record Ninth Super Bowl appearance (seven with Brady and Coach B.).
Fifth win (all behind Brady) (NE looks to tie the Steelers record 6 next year).
Brady’s 466 passing yards – SB record.
Brady is undeniably the best quarterback in history.
First SB of the MAGA era.
Probably a bunch of other records.
The greatest performance in the greatest SB (according to someone at ESPN). I agree.
And the Pats did all of this on the heels of a year when they alone had to play one extra game, a game that lasted the whole season. They played a year-long game against the NFL itself and most of the rest of the world. And they won. The NFL, Roger Goodell, and all the rest are losers.
Goodell should resign. Today.
Brady, Coach B., and Co. showed what you do when the world is against you: turn all the hatred into resolve and beat the world down.
And they’re not done yet…
The Falcons aren’t done either. They had an outstanding season and played an incredible game. They dominated 3/4ths of it – they dominated the best team in history. Maybe no-one else could have done that. In the end it was not enough, though it was impressive.
I’ve read many rants about the 4th quarter disintegration. That was destiny. Sorry. But nobody is harder on themselves than Atlanta fans.
Some in Atlanta are already talking about “next year” – a familiar UGA phrase. That is the spirit. But put it off for another year. They’re saying the same thing in Boston and, there, they mean it.
The “meaning it” is critical. Four things are required to win football championships: a great coach, a great quarterback, a demanding, loyal owner, and an expectant, demanding fan base. Boston is a sports crazed town, best of all American cities; they have all elements across all their teams – especially in the Patriots. Fanatics doesn’t come close. Atlanta finally has the first three but not yet the fourth.
The winning psyche matters. The AJC’s Mark Bradley captured it perfectly last night (if harshly): Mark Bradley: Falcons lose the most Atlanta game ever. When you make your city’s name synonymous with losing, you have a problem.
The Falcons fan base needs to analyze 37 years of failed UGA football. “Good”, “pretty good”, “almost”, “high winning percentage”, and “next year” just don’t cut it. They have to expect excellence and demand excellence. Stop focusing on how someone else is the worst and become the best yourselves.
Take everything I just wrote about Atlanta and invert it. As President Trump Tweeted: “They’re winners.”
The Commercials/SJW Watch
I think someone at the NFL and Madison Avenue finally got the memo that Americans are tired of anti-Americanisms. The SJW nonsense was there, subtly, though it was much more muted than I had expected.
Also, I think the age of the stellar, funny, and memorable SB commercials is over.
Wow. Part of me (and others) half expected Gaga, an outspoken liberal, to politically ham up her show and continue the shenanigans from 2016. Instead she opened patriotically and put on a heck of a show. In answer to that stupid Masters question of a few years back: “Lady Gaga or Lady Antebellum?” – I’ll take Gaga.
Professional. Witty. Fun. And hot…
Congratulations to the (once again) Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots. Yes. Told ya so. There’s that. I originally called NE winning 31-30. 34-28 does it too. Wow. And they held back the whole first half…
May have some thoughts tomorrow. I think we can safely call Tom Brady the greatest quarterback in history. 5. Five. 5…
For their part, the Falcons played an incredible game, a championship worthy game.
Ah, well. Memes away!
This past fall I pretty much cut football out of my life. However, on October 3rd I reserved my right “like a good hypocrite” to revisit for exceptional games. The specific example I gave was the Patriots next Super Bowl. And, today, February 5th, here we are.
New England is going to win tonight (should win). But it’s not simply due to talent. Both teams are immensely talented. It’s about emotional control. Says Tom Brady:
“You kind of have to be right on the edge. It’s such an emotional game. You don’t want to be out of control, but you can’t play with no emotion. You strike different chords for different emotions at different times.”
That might sound strange coming from a player who rarely hides his feelings on the field. Just think back to his return game in Cleveland after his four-game “Deflategate” suspension, when Brady was pumping up Patriots fans on hand during warmups.
Yet he insists Super Bowl Sunday calls for moderation in approach.
“It’s a long day,” Brady said. “I mean it’s a long day because it’s been a long week because there’s a lot of things you’re doing. You’re doing a lot more things this week than you normally do for a game week. Just to get to the game, it ends up being … a four-hour game? A longer pregame and a longer halftime, so … it ends up being 4½ to five hours.
“You’ve got to be able to have something left at the end of the game. You can’t waste it all early in the third quarter.”
A quick look back to New England’s victory over Seattle in the 2015 Super Bowl shows that Brady and the Patriots had plenty left. They rallied from a 10-point hole to win.
The Falcons are far from out of control, but NE are the base masters. They’ve been here before. They’ll be here again (probably next year).
Anyway, it looks to be a very good game.
It also, back to the reasons for abandoning the sport, looks to be an SJW-fest. Reports say everyone from Lady Gaga to Budweiser is gearing up to make some sort of idiotic anti-American political statement. If they do, and if the American fans tolerate it, then the SJW win.
Speaking of winning, I’m going to start the meme parade early:
