Not only do I believe this will have the opposite effect, I believe that the fandom deserves its temple to be bought down by its own intolerance, fear
and hatred dressed as nationalism.
It actually brings me great joy to see the pathetic, mindless exercise in mediocrity, that is general sports fandom, collapsing in this particular
fashion, and seeing American Football fandom in particular heading the way of the dodo. I LOVE the fact that it is the cynical hatred of freedom of
speech, dressed up as patriotism and love of flag and country, that will be the tool which brings the thing down around the heads of those who have
traditionally supported it.
When the right wing, square bashing, freedom hating scum who think that a person should not be permitted to protest in peace, have everything they
want, I will enjoy watching them tormented by the grey, pointless, barren, boring place they are trying to create. I look forward to the sorrow they
bring upon themselves, finally coming to roost amongst them. It will be delicious to watch them stifle themselves with their fear, until they can
enjoy nothing, feel nothing but emptiness and anxiety, with nothing to distract them from it, because they have unmade all their own institutions, and
cut themselves of from their pastimes out of nothing but indoctrinated fear and hatred.
The only people I feel in the slightest bit sorry for, are those who cared for the game, but did not have an ideological problem with pitch side
protests. That small minority will loose out purely because of the stringent, ignorant, phobic behaviour of the others, but thankfully there are many
other sports to migrate to. I hope all sports become this impossible for the haters on the right to enjoy, quite frankly.
It is a thing of beauty, this desertion. The fewer right wingers involved in sports fandom, the better for the future of the USA after all. It stands
to reason, that the fewer sports fans there are in their ranks, the more likely they are to be claimed by aiming to emulate their new gods, new idols,
people like Alex Jones, a man whose blood pressure is vast, but outmatched easily by the scale of his waistline, or worse yet, Steve "Walking Tumour"
Bannon, who has never looked healthy or been healthy for as long as he has existed.
The more right wingers emulating those two and people like them, in place of their former heroes in sport, the quicker the fascists will eliminate
themselves through ill health, reducing their voting strength, and permitting a sea change in the United States, both socially and politically. They
are going to literally delete themselves in a few generations at this rate, and that is just absolutely delicious.
