“When and if fascism comes to America it will not be labeled ‘made in Germany’; it will not be marked with a swastika; it will not even be called fascism; it will be called, of course, ‘Americanism’” – (New York Times article published September 12, 1938.)
“We were disappointed to read Don’s tweets during the NFL Draft. They were inappropriate and unacceptable, and we regret the negative impact these comments had on such an important weekend for the NFL. We met with Don today about respect, discrimination and judgment. These comments are not consistent with the values and standards of our program. We will continue to emphasize and educate our players that these statements will not be tolerated.”
That was the reaction of Miami Dolphins Head Coach Joe Philbin, to Safety Don Jones, who tweeted “OMG” and “Horrible” in reaction to ESPN’s display of a seventh round draft pick making out with his boyfriend. You read that right. Michael Sam, the NFL’s first open homosexual, who has been protesting to reporters that he just wants to be treated as “Michael Sam – the football player” and not “Michael Sam – the gay football player,” made sure that cameras caught him tonguing his boyfriend after the Rams picked him up in the seventh round of the NFL draft.
Apparently, it’s a big deal to be “Michael Sam – the football player” because I’m pretty sure that no president has ever called anyone drafted in the seventh round of an NFL draft to congratulate them.
Don Jones was immediately fined and suspended, and probably would have had to run the gauntlet while Dan Savage and Perez Hilton strafed him with Louis Vuitton handbags if he hadn’t released an apology tout suite:
“I want to apologize to Michael Sam for the inappropriate comments that I made last night on social media. I take full responsibility for them and I regret that these tweets took away from his draft moment … I sincerely apologize to Mr. Ross, my teammates, coaches, staff and fans for these tweets. I am committed to represent the values of the Miami Dolphins organization and appreciate the opportunity I have been given to do so going forward.”
IN DEFENSE OF MICHAEL SAM:
We are supposed to believe that the team with arguably the best defensive line in the NFL saw a need to draft a player who is too small to play defensive line and who completely blew the linebacker drills (strictly punintentional) at the combine. Could it be because he’s “gay”?
Let me tell you what I think: The Commissioner of the National Football League – Lucifer – has an agenda that he’s been pushing on the league. Does it have something to do with his gay brother? I don’t know. I’m thinking it’s more of a worldview thing. I also think that he panicked about the stories that there would be about teams “not drafting the first openly homosexual player,” and I think that he is either intimidated or enamored with the Pink Mafia.
