The two foremost social thinkers of the 19thcentury remain powerful symbols of racial injustice: the NFL now claims it did not listen to those uppity black players who believe they are living in an unequal and unjust system of police rioters.
The two biggest symbols of the NFL –Jerry Jones and Bill Belichick—have maintained their deafening silence on the subject of George Floyd and racial brutality.
Their defenders claim that, in private, both are dismayed that their black players are not happy. But, they are not moved much more than Trump on the scale of justice. Oh, yes, they are both MAGA men.
In the Massachusetts senator debate last night, Joe Kennedy, grandson and great-nephew of Robert and John Kennedy said the Patriots ought to sign Colin Kaepernick. Fat chance: that white snowball in hell belongs to the NFL.
Oh, yes, Robert Kraft is a Trump supporter too.
Defenders of the symbols of NFL victory lappers will never come out and admit their worlds are backward and their views are racist.
It’s hard to draw any other conclusion in the face of such rampant ostrich head burying.
There are those rednecks who line the streets holding automatic weapons as a show to intimidate peaceful demonstrators. There are those resemble the Boston Strangler who put a knee to the neck of the helpless victims but wear police uniforms or NFL neckties.
85% of America think the country is out of control. Among the minority here are Jerry Jones and Bill Belichick: they are always in control, even if your civil rights are thrown out the window.
With Minneapolis in turmoil over the killing of a black man by an overzealous police officer, Trump has thrown fuel on the fire. He wants to order military troops into the city and shoot citizens under the guise of executing looters.
Forget trials, arrests, or formal crimes charged. You are to be executed by order of a man without a shred of decency, legal sense, or compassion.
In fact, this type of action has precedence in America of recent vintage. Police and military started shooting American students at Kent State College in 1970. It was the unwinding of an era.
It will be the end of Trump and his pro-Nazi cronies in the United States Senate, including Moscow McConnell and Closet Queen Lindsay.
When a cop puts a knee on your neck for eight minutes, he might as well be the Boston Strangler. Even the poor victim realized it was his death knell. You cannot cut off oxygen for eight minutes and expect someone to live. Derek Chauvin, the killer kop, has a double, a Doppleganger who attends Trump rallies and takes orders via dog whistle.
There are no police strategies that recommend that subduing officers kill their suspects for forgery, let alone a violent crime.
Derek Chauvin (or his photoshopping double) appeared at the Trump rally, standing with Trump. The president refuses to acknowledge that he has given dog whistles to his K-9 cops to kill black people, seemingly part of the genocide that the COVID-19 is creating with its disproportionate deaths of people of color.
This neo-Nazi president is likely not done yet. He has yet to destroy the Constitution and demolish the presidential election, next goal on his mad agenda.
