Joe is one of a kind in the online entertainment community.
Ill tell you why "kneelgate" coverage (thanks for that) is just as important as Puerto Rico and all the disasters. Because we are facing a National
disaster and crisis of identity and unity right now that will not go away.
In some ways Trump is doing all of us a favor by stoking the fires of what was reduced to embers for the last year since Kappy started the kneeling
thing and its good for the same reason people in support of the kneeling say thats good: because it draws attention to an issue.
However, in this case, Trump is actually drawing attention to a fundamental societal issue DIRECTLY rather than obliquely like the kneeling does for
police brutality. Unlike that very obscure and disconnected reference alluded to by kneeling, Trump is DIRECTLY calling out those who support anti
american views and believe me its not just the kneeling thing hes talking about.
What if Trump is a lot smarter or more clever than people give him credit for? What if he realized this kneeling thing taking place in the NFL is a
touchstone for an anti american philosophical trend thats been building momentum and support for DECADES?????
thats what i think this could be.
The fact is, the kneeling thing does not exist in some discrete little box. Its connected to alot of other social commentary and actions by the
extreme "progressive Left". The 'kneelgate" thing is merely a more visible and perhaps easier to reference symbol for a much larger problem thats
been silently festering and growing under the surface of the skin of the body politic.
The hatred of America is now firmly and overtly en vogue among the rich and famous. If someone feels like it they could create a thread with every
anti american statement made by hollywood elite and famous people over the last X many years. I think many people would be astonished how well
entrenched and popular it has become to hate America.
so Trump is doing all of us a favor by drawing even more attention to this. We are a Nation in crisis and we simply MUST get a very healthy PUBLIC
dialogue going about what we are going to do about this.
We have various groups of people with divergent philosophical, socio political ideas of what America was, what it is now and what it should be. This
is the great crisis and challenge that will affect probably everything else that happens in the fairly immediate future. We cannot afford to write
this thing off as just the latest faddish nonsense being paraded by the Media. This is serious and we MUST tackle (heh) it immediately.
Ive already started engaging conversation in numerous social media discussions to provoke people into sharing their true thoughts and feelings about
where America is going and what we should do about it. this is what i challenge every one to do. Talk to those who are willing to listen. Try to
practice your arguments to yourself first and rehearse a bit so you can bring your A game to those discussions. Most of all try to also LISTEN to your
opponents and refrain from saying offensive things that will cause them to switch off or burrow deeper into their mindless ideology.
we must push logic and reason to the forefront of every discussion. Insist that people provide rational arguments for their positions. Insist on a
common understanding of words and their definitions.
Lets do this.
sorry for the tangent....but i felt that this Rogan show spent a fair amount of time talking about these very things and i think we need to keep the
discussion going and even enlarge and expand it outward as far as we can.
