The NFL Had An Epic Championship Sunday and Ruined It

For the first time ever both NFL Championship games went to overtime, and the NFL ruined both games, but for different reasons.

In game one we witnessed perhaps the most egregiously bad no-call in the history of the game, as a mugging (calling it pass interference doesn’t do it justice) by an LA Rams defensive back was inexplicably missed on a key third down late in the fourth quarter. If called properly, New Orleans would have either scored a touchdown or kicked a last-second field goal and almost certainly won. Instead they settled for a field goal allowing LA time to kick a long last-second field goal themselves, tying the game and sending it to OT where the Rams won. What makes it even more inexplicable is that a ref is seen standing no more than five yards away clearly looking at the play! How does this clown have a job??!! And it gets better: there were clearly not one but TWO penalties on the play: the other being helmet-to-helmet contact.

In game two, The hated New England Pats and the KC Chiefs staged an epic back-and-forth game that went to OT tied 31 all. The game was then basically won………..by flipping a coin. Yea! Other than NE fans, everyone on the planet wanted to see KC and Patrick Mahomes get one last shot at glory, but it was not to be. The NFL needs to change its OT rules for playoffs immediately: give each team one possession, regardless if the team getting the ball first scores a TD. Play 10 minutes minimum, or 15. Adopt the college rule: equal possessions at the 25. I have always liked the college rule better even though its’ detractors say “it is not real football”: it’s more exciting and equitable. A coin-flip isn’t real football either. Don’t like starting at the 25? Start at the 40. Regardless, the current system stinks. With two gassed defenses on the field, it was little doubt that whoever won the coin toss would score a TD. Sad way to end an epic game.

Why Social Media Is The Worst Thing In The World

Here are just a few words and phrases I would use to describe social media: garbage, hateful, vile, a waste of time, mind-numbing, IQ-lowering, mental-illness causing, to name a few.

The latest example is what happened in the aftermath of the alleged dustup involving a few boys from Covington Catholic School at Friday’s March For Life. Full disclosure: I was there and saw nothing but exemplary behavior among the hundreds of thousands in attendance. As usually happens with this sort of thing, some brave keyboard commandos set out to identify, scourge, threaten and harass the most prominent figure in the video. Trouble is, as is also common, they got the ID wrong. This led to an innocent teen and his family to be subject to harassment, intimidation and even death threats. These leftist gutter-dwellers should be ashamed, but they have no shame. Ends justify the means. Frankly, nobody who is threatened in this manner has to worry since the people doing it are gutless cowards.

More On Gillette’s “Toxic Masculinity” Ad

First off, “toxic masculinity” is a made-up term by the far-left to try to brow-beat men into behaving like they want. It has no meaning. On a personal level, the ad is offensive because with two exceptions, all of the offending men are white. Also notice that the “correctors” are often men of color. If this were reversed, the left would be screaming about “racism!”. No men in the ad from countries where women are treated like chattel, often beaten or even subject to “honor killings”. The brand manager of Gillette (I looked him up) is from a culture where women are often treated brutally. Perhaps a look in the mirror would be good for him.

On a cultural level, the ad is even more offensive because it engages in the worst types of stereotyping. Yes, men sometimes behave badly. But so do women. I can’t wait for Gillette’s ad encouraging women to find their better angles. Yeah right. Then Gillette would be condemned for “mansplaining”. This is just another shot in the culture war against men and masculinity. The far-left engages in the fantasy that men and women are the same, and wants a society where feminists and the LGBT crowd rule.

The Worst Of The Left’s Face-Palm Inducing Race-Baiting This Week

Two dopey ESPN hosts (I thought they were getting out of politics) accused the President of racism for serving fast-food burgers to Clemson’s football team. Numerous other leftist media clowns did the same.

https://freebeacon.com/culture/espn-host-suggests-trump-was-racist-for-serving-clemson-players-fast-food/

Good thing he didn’t serve Taco Bell…that would have been mocking illegal immigrants. And thank God he didn’t serve KFC! Can you imagine the melt-down? The President also was criticized for being sexist for making a joke about Melania making salads for the boys. Make no mistake: this is simply about Trump…everything he does comes with evil intentions. If Obama did this, the same morons would be praising him for his “coolness and ability to relate to college athletes” and his “generosity during the shutdown”. To the far-left, everything is racist, rendering the term meaningless.

What is racism? It is treating someone differently because of their race or skin color. Who does this EVERY DAMN DAY?? The left! These people are the real racists, and race-baiters. Though comical at times, it is also dangerous. This sort of behavior has horribly divided the country and has ultimately led to violence. When you believe that half the country is racist, as many Democrats now state, where do you stop?

Not to be outdone, an idiotic CNN talking head named Areva Martin accused conservative commentator David Webb of “white privilege”. One problem, Webb is black, LOL! The left plumbing the depths of stupidity. At least do some research, moron. This is how far leftist journalistic standards have fallen. CNN – the most trusted name in news…NOT!

We are in serious trouble, folks.

Gillette Decides to Attack Men for “Toxic Masculinity”

In an effort to “outwoke” other companies, Gillette (owned by P&G) has decided to release an ad in the US in effect telling men to “shape up” and confront their “toxic masculinity”. The ad has become a sensation and provoked much justified outrage, in my opinion, and not all of it from the right. You can watch it yourself (if you haven’t already) but it is nothing more than silly PC virtue signaling. In the ad, mostly white men (making the ad subtly racist) engage in various types of exaggerated boorish behavior. Now, “toxic masculinity” is one of many silly, meaningless made-up terms from the far-left like safe space, micro-aggression, white privilege and trigger-warning. But this represents another shot in the battle the left is carrying on against men.

When I buy a product, I want to buy the damn product, not be lectured or have a “discussion”.

What the ad didn’t mention is that virtually every advancement in human history has involved masculine men (and in many cases women, to give the ladies just due). They also founded this country (not that it is a plus for the far-left), ended slavery, stormed the Normandy beaches, won multiple wars against tyrannical regimes, put a man on the moon, and ran into the Twin Towers when they were burning, just to name a few.

Here are some other things “real men” do or don’t do:

They provide for and protect their families.

They open doors for ladies.

They do not father multiple children with multiple women out of wedlock.

They don’t leave their children without a father.

They protect the weak, like the unborn.

See if these “woke” leftists can grasp these concepts without having a melt-down.

Google Manipulates Search to Promote Leftist Causes

Resulting in possible illegal campaign finance contributions and possible perjury by their CEO. “A Google employee in the discussion thread drew attention to Pichai’s claim, noting that it “seems like we are pretty eager to cater our search results to the social and political agenda of left-wing journalists.””

We already know that Google is controlled by avowed leftists and cannot be trusted. Now, there are alternatives to Google but this is dangerous due to the vast amounts of information Google controls. Google is no longer fair and open, and other major sources of information (Facebook) need to be scrutinized as well. Leftists are using Google for propaganda. Liberals should be equally worried as such media can be turned on them. It is long past time for Google to be thoroughly investigated, regulated and if necessary penalized harshly.

2018 Saw A Revolt Against Climate Change Policies

Fact: it is unclear what if any impact mankind is having on the Earth’s climate. Despite what left-wing politicians and media tell you there is ample evidence that the Earth is not warming and that if it is, it has nothing to do with development. There are far too any unknowns still and there is no “settled science”, only leftist dogma designed to allow big-government statism to run the global economy and rule the planet. Fortunately, in the developed world people are catching on to the climate change con and are pushing back against their government’s attempts to pass onerous taxes and regulation.
