Goodbye Roger Goodell and the NFL! Stop Supporting Black Fascists and Their Racism!

I’ve bought season Vikings tickets for twenty years.   I found the NFL’s brand of football the most challenging, exciting, enticing sport of all even though the Vikings are perpetual losers.

Overall, its players are ever so much more skilled at every position than they were 50 years ago when I first followed Viking losings.  My favorite football running  back of all time is Barry Sanders; quarterback is Tom Brady,  wide receiver is Chris Carter, coach is Bill Belichick, and team is the Vikings.

But we Americans now live in a time of supreme vulgarity, deceit, and the rot of the Hillary Roddham Clintons and today’s American universities whose social preachers today teach fascist  leftistm….whose power comes from fanatic feminists and  the rise of the uneducated American Black whose urban slavery over the past sixty years as been controlled almost entirely by  power brokers  in the Democrat Party, today’s  racist NAACP, and the corrupt eight years of antiAmerican, Barack Hussein Obama in the White House.

A few years ago a Colin Kaepernick at quarterback led the San Francisco 49ers into the NFC playoffs.  He displayed  a great arm and great legs.  Thereafter, he seemed to have troubles following  the quickness of plays and became confined to rely on his own running ability….which opponents seemed to feast on.  He soon was replaced by other  qbs, and the 49ers have been losers ever since.  So has loser Colin Kaepernick, now famous for sulking and black politics, a creature of a different world than playing and trying to win playing football.

Roger Goodell, starring in the video below,  is a creature of another world.   For his 40 million dollar income he’s supposed to be ‘running’ a professional football league.  Instead, he seems to be more interested in toting a nursery for black racism, its hatreds and its profound ignorance of reality,    to be sold by millionaires  playing from  football field to football field and  to the American people to vote   Democrat Party and points leftier.

What do you think these football players ‘studied and learned’ at the football college of their choice which ‘trained’ these skilled athletes….Climatology,  Biochemistry, Geomorphology,  Chinese,  Roman Catholicism perhaps, as their knowledge of language of their future?  American History?…are you kidding?

Barry Sanders had a wonderful father who guided him to athletic fame.   Without a doubt many of the more than  1500 football  players who are listed as active players each NFL season do have fathers who protected, disciplined them, and guided them to athletic stardom.  Yet, something like 80% of our American black families today are fatherless……a gift of ‘goodness’ from Democrat President, Lyndon Baines Johnson in the 1960s whose handouts to families with children without fathers turned out to be much richer than handouts to those with fathers.

I attended a mixed race high school from 1952-56.  Blacks were called Negroes then.  Like everyone else in America those days Negroes had fathers, period!   Knowledge was taught in schools then.   That is what schools were for…..to teach knowledge, skills, decency, and respect for others.   People regularly  went to Church and Synagogue on weekends then to impress the importance of honesty, righteousness, and respect for others in our blessed democratic America.

Feminist fascism hadn’t been born yet!  Democrats were civilized then.  When of age, I used to vote for them.

Roger Goodell below, claims NFL football players….referring to the black ones in particular,  feel,  have a “tremendous knowledge and deep understanding” of issues going on in our communities….working together on issues of social justice.  He didn’t mention how many graduated from college or what their majors were besides football.

Relative to their per cent of population today, murderers in America are overwhelming black and male.   Interracial murders are overwhelming blacks killing whites.   Murders within a race are overwhelmingly black killing black.   Roger didn’t mention anything like that.

I no longer attend nor do I watch any NFL football games.   Over 600,000 American whites died to save this nation and free its Negro slave population.   This American trained side by side his Negro American brothers six decades ago in the U.S. Army.

My favorite American ‘tribe’ hero today is the conservative American black who has broken away from 75 years of enslavement dependent  upon  Democrat Party’s government  handouts….free, free at last!

Roger Goodell is  delivering another verbal leftist, racist  political party handout Colin Kaepernick seems to be selling.   He seems so sold, he repeats and repeats.   I shall not visit anything football advancing  racist politics, whether black or white.   Good night, Roger!    Let us know if there is a change in your weather.

Water Troubles Hit Lake Superior!

Warning:   The following article may be disturbing for Californians, feminists, black racists, university professors, elementary and high school teachers,   Harvey Weintstein, Al Franken,  Hillary Roddham Clinton, Lefty Judges and other moguls to “fathom”.

LAKE SUPERIOR DRYING UP DUE TO CLIMATE CHANGE! NO, WAIT…

by John Hinderaker  at PowerLine:

“Today’s Minneapolis Star Tribune headlines: “Lake Superior is near record high and threatening shoreline.” The lake is within two inches of its highest recorded level, and the consequences are dire:

Wayne Jensen sat on his narrow strip of Lake Superior shoreline last month, listening to waves crash against his small cliff and soaking in the scent of woods near Port Wing, Wis., his frequent escape from the bustle of his home in Minneapolis.

Just then, he watched a piece of his paradise disappear. A chunk of land about 15 feet long and about 6 feet wide slid into the big lake, trees and all, as he sat nearby.

“I wanted to start crying. I’m watching this beautiful, pristine shoreline fall into the lake,” Jensen said. “I just stood there in awe.”

[I]f the gales of November come early, before the water level has a chance to go down as it typically does this time of year, the devastation could be widespread, Jensen and others worry.

Already, the high lake level is sinking fixed docks and causing problems as water seeps into homes on Duluth’s saturated sandy spit known as Park Point.

Why is Lake Superior’s water level so high? We’ve gotten a lot of rain and snow in recent years. But the Strib hints at a darker possibility:

“Is it climate change? Or is it just a cyclical thing?” Buck wondered aloud. “What can we do? What can we expect?”

But wait! Just a few short years ago, we were told that Lake Superior was drying up, as water levels were, for a while, below average. What caused the level of the Great Lakes to fall? Climate change, of course. And low levels, like high levels, are bad.

National Geographic: “Climate Change and Variability Drive Low Water Levels on the Great Lakes.”

The National Resources Defense Council: “Climate change is lowering Great Lakes water levels.”

It’s no secret that, partially due to climate change, the water levels in the Great Lakes are getting very low.

The U.N’s IPCC: “[T]he following lake level declines could occur: Lake Superior -0.2 to -0.5 m.”

Dick Durbin: “What we are seeing in global warming is the evaporation of our Great Lakes.”

Minnesota Public Radio

Scientists at the Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration [are] studying the interplay between low water levels, shrinking ice cover and warm water temperatures, Gronewold said. They have already concluded that climate change is playing a role in determining Great Lakes water levels.

In the world of climate “science,” there is no penalty for being wrong. It would be nice, however, if reporters were to notice now and then…..”

What’s New with the Mystery of the Great Pyramid?

Archaeologists solve the mystery of the Great Pyramid

by George Sandeman  the Sun:

“New evidence proves that the ancient Egyptians constructed the Great Pyramid at Giza by transporting 170,000 tons of limestone in boats.

It has long been known that the rock was extracted eight miles away in Tura and that granite used in the monumental structure was quarried 533 miles away in Aswan.

However, archaeologists have disagreed over how the material was transported to Giza, now part of modern-day Cairo, for construction of Pharaoh Khufu’s tomb in 2600 BC.

Now that mystery could be a step further to being solved after the discovery of an ancient scroll of papyrus, a ceremonial boat and a network of waterways, the Mail on Sunday reported.

The new evidence shows that thousands of laborers transported 170,000 tons of limestone along the River Nile in wooden boats built with planks and rope.

The 2.5-ton blocks were ferried through a system of specially designed canals before arriving at an inland port built just yards away from the base of the Great Pyramid.

The papyrus scroll is the only firsthand record of how the pyramid was built, and was written by an overseer named Merer.

He explained in detail how the limestone was moved from the quarry in Tura to Giza using the Bronze Age waterways.

Archaeologist Mark Lehner has also uncovered evidence of a waterway underneath the plateau the pyramid sits on.

He said: “We’ve outlined the central canal basin, which we think was the primary delivery area to the foot of the Giza Plateau.”

Respite for Those, Such as I, Who Respect Ulysses S. Grant as U.S. President

RON CHERNOW’S “GRANT”

by Paul Mirengoff at PowerLine:

“For years, John and I have defended the presidency of Ulysses S. Grant, rated by most historians as a failure and by some as among the worst in American history. This post is, I think, my most extensive commentary on the subject.

In addition to defending Grant’s presidency, my post considers why historians have treated it so unfairly. The answer, I argued, is that historians found it in their interest to slam Grant. Southern historians, whose influence was too large for a long period, hated Reconstruction, which Grant oversaw and took seriously (they also, in many cases, resented the successful war he waged on the Confederacy).

Democrat historians hate the economics of the era Grant, among other Republican presidents, presided over. Unbridled capitalism, and all that.

The fatal blows against Grant’s presidency were struck, however, by a Northern Republican, Henry Adams. The savage attack he launched against Grant in The Education of Henry Adams, published commercially almost 100 years ago, is still quoted today. It reflects the snobbish criticism Adams had articulated privately for decades.

As I tried to show in my post, Adams’ criticism was made in bad faith. Indeed, Adams basically admitted as much in his Education. As he belatedly acknowledged, he turned against Grant because one of the president’s cabinet selection, George Boutwell of Massachusetts, was a political rival of his family. Boutwell’s selection, he complained melodramatically, “cut short the life which Adams had laid out for himself in the future” and “meant. . .the total extinction of anyone resembling Henry Adams.”

In other words, Adams attacked Grant not as good faith political commentator or historian, but as a disappointed office seeker.

Ron Chernow, the distinguished biographer of George Washington and Alexander Hamilton, has just published a biography of Grant. One of us, most likely Scott, linked a while back to a review of Chernow’s Grant in the New Yorker. The review is by Adam Gopnik.

Gopnik starts his review just where he should — at the moment when Henry Adams waits breathlessly in the Capitol Building for word of Grant’s Cabinet appointments. This was the moment that determined the accepted narrative of Grant the president, and Grant the non-military personage, until now. Gopnik’s review suggests to me that Chernow’s book may finally reverse the view Adams so successfully promoted.

According to Gopnik:

[Chernow] makes a convincing case that Grant actually behaved nobly, even heroically, while in the White House. He pressed the cause of black equality under the law, and was consistently on the right side of Reconstruction-era issues — winning more heartfelt praise from Frederick Douglass than Lincoln ever did.

The reason Reconstruction failed, and ended with the reimposition of an apartheid system, had to do with an exasperating coalition of self-styled Northern “reformers” and the openly revanchist, anti-Grant Southerners — misguided progressives making common cause with true reactionaries against a well-meaning middle — and also with a general battle fatigue that afflicted the nation.

It’s a case I’ve subscribed to since reading Brooks Simpson’s The Reconstruction Presidentsyears ago.

Chernow also presses the case against Henry Adams and other snobs who were able to paint the negative picture of Grant that persisted even after historians finally came to recognize his heroic efforts in the Reconstruction Era. Gopnik writes:

With class animosities disguised as high-minded mistrust, Adams’s anti-Grant virus communicated itself to other “reformers,” who saw in Grant’s readiness to use the normal spoils system of civil-service appointments a form of rampant corruption.

What they missed, Chernow notes, was Grant’s remarkable advances in hiring minorities to federal positions. Small incidents of nepotism, Chernow maintains, have “overshadowed this far more important narrative.” Grant’s open affirmative action on behalf of the Jews—he “appointed more than fifty Jewish citizens” at one friend’s request alone, “including consuls, district attorneys and deputy postmasters”—was doubly significant given that, in a fit of anger at a handful of opportunistic merchants in the midst of the war, he had imposed an anti-Jewish ukase in one district under occupation.

They also missed the fact that George Boutwell, whose appointment caused Adams to start beating the anti-Grant drum, was a fine Secretary of the Treasury and an important, though underappreciated, figure throughout the second half of the Nineteenth Century. Boutwell was anything but a hack.

Towards the end of his review, Gopnik veers off into incoherent praise of modern identity politics as practiced by the Democratic Party. He fails to distinguish between, on the one hand, opening opportunities to groups that have largely been excluded from office because of race and religion and, on the other, creating a racial spoils system.

But before going off the deep end, Gopnik makes a compelling case for Chernow’s new book. In light of the review, the subject, and Chernow’s past work, the publication of Grant might well be a landmark event.”

Fascism the New Confessional State?

The new confessional state

Secularism is becoming a religion.  (article sent by Mark Waldeland)
. . . Now, while pretending not to privilege any systems of life and belief, the state tacitly favors what might be called practical atheism, and penalizes contrary views.  To be sure, no one in public life is criticized – yet – just for believing in God.  The point is not so much that there cannot be a God, but that no God is needed and no God can be known.
 

But woe unto him who thinks believing in God makes a difference.  One is not required to be an atheist.  One is only expected to impersonate one.  Especially in law and the universities.

This masks the fact that Something Else is being elevated to godhood.  Secularism is becoming a religion.  We are growing an inverted confessional state.

 …..

“There is neither good, not bad.  ONLY THINKING MAKES IT SO!!

The above adage was first ingrained in me in the sixth grade by a forty year old German going on 90, a  Miss Mary Alice Koeneman the year World War II finally came to and end.

(GOOD, she noted more than once in her teachings,  was  one “O” added to GOD!  It should NEVER be forgotten!  )

Prager University: WAS AMERICA FOUNDED TO BE SECULAR?

Are America’s Black Racists Behind Today’s Football War AGAINST The National Anthem?

Black Racism was alive and well in the Minneapolis where  I lived and taught high school in the late 1960s and 1970s.    It was already quite popular nation-wide then as  it is today despite the lie  Leftists of any day  still  bleat that racism can only be white in color.

I taught Modern Problems and Russian in a very civilized, then a mostly Russian Orthodox and Roman Catholic working class  section of town.   Rebellion against the Vietnam War and traditional Middle Class Christian  values was heating up.

Drugs and sex on the streets had made it to Gopher city.   Black hoodlums were stirred, already in control in a few junior and senior high schools.  They’d throw rocks at busses carrying white student football fans to games at the two predominantly black high schools then, Central and North.   I was a regular chaperone during day time games.

Administrations were required to ignore such incidents.   Teachers and janitors would be fired if they mentioned any black-caused school incidents to the press.

All disruptions even occasional  beatings for the fun of it, were attacks by black males exclusively upon whites, and usually occurred on school grounds.     Administrators refused to confront these attacks.

In 1972 I was transferred.   I had filled out a form improperly.  I chose to be sent to Central.

Black student brutality against whites was more than common within the school.   Teachers had to drive their cars into a fenced-in lot adjacent to the school’s boiler room where we had to enter and exit each day to avoid being attacked.    A tall white senior was beaten to unconsciousness by black students both male and female during lunch hour one day.  It happened outside my classroom door which had been locked for   safety’s sake.    I lost my cool, unlocked the door, ran out onto the hall and shouted angrily at the couple dozen student  savages kicking and stealing money from their prey.   Some “students” I recognized, had come from my own classroom.

The attack had been planned because the victim was the tallest “white dude” among the school’s black students.

A civilized black student from my own social studies class had his winter jacket hanging in his locker set afire by other school  black hoodlums.   It was punishment.   They had ordered him not to talk to me, his  white teacher, during class that week.  He disobeyed.

One afternoon three black hoodlums, one with blond rinsed hair each threw a brick at me as hard as they could as I and my class were sitting in a circle .  One brick hit a radiator and broke into pieces.   They missed me, but a piece hit a student sitting next to me.    They seemed nervous and ran out the door  immediately after their discharge.   It was my fault, I was told by the principal.   I should have had my door locked during class like the other teachers did.

1972 is 45 years ago.   Black racism was alive and well practiced in certain  high schools then.   Guns came later……None of it was ever mentioned in local fake news of that day, the Minneapolis Star and Tribune.    They, as so often happens today, were programmed to believe ONLY WHITES CAN BE RACISTS!…..a very racist statement in itself……especially among educated people, wouldn’t you think?

BLACK RACISTS AND THEIR LEFTIST FRIENDS ARE EXPRESSING THEIR RACISM TODAY BY THE COLIN KAEPERNICK METHOD….wealthy football brats making $$$$ hand over fist, sit on their fannies to sell RACIST LEFTWING POLITICS WITH THE APPROVAL OF LEFTIST WHITE AND BLACK PROFITEERS while the civilized sing the nation’s national anthem.

BLACK IS THE LEADING COLOR OF RACISM TODAY IN AMERICA.

I am a Tucker Carlson television fan.   This evening he interviewed an arrogant,  mouthy black racist attorney, Scott Bolden.   This black racist attorney man  is an American by birth and upbringing, and very, very wealthy.

Yet, he insisted Blacks are racially oppressed today  as ever before.    There isn’t a white person in the world who knows how blacks suffer under America’s white oppression cops  (presumably, he inferred  ALL  police  are white.

THE CRIMINAL CLASS IN AMERICA TODAY IS OVERWHELMINGLY  BLACK and MALE.  That was not the case when I attended a well  managed mixed race St. Paul Central High school from 1948-1952.  Learned adults were in control of education there.  Negro children , like whites, had fathers and mothers.   Negroes, like whites, went to Church on Sunday’s then.   Negroes with modest means, like whites with modest means, owned shops then, corner markets, shoe repair shops, bakeries, dime stores,  gas stations, drove street cars, taxis, and busses.

In 1957 Negroes were in the army beside me.   I have never had a black racist corpuscle in my body,  but I am not happy with today’s black rascist vulgars and their white leftist  tag-alongs who defile our American flag and anthem at football games or any other place.    These  two major symbols are to remind all of us Americans, despite all of our differences, we are together in our being American.

Most young men playing professional football haven’t been taught much about anything classically lasting and  worthwhile….only things football……little or no history, especially ancient history, geology,  no general science,  climatology, astronomy, botany,   nothing about Soviet Communism,  the American Civil War, and the most inspiring classes of my college life, BIOCHEMISTRY.

Arrogant attorney  Leftist Scott Bolden is clearly a practicing  Black Racist.    If these racists of the Black Lives Matter gangs increase their  poison of lies in their antiAmerican politics, it won’t be long when the white American majority will begin to organize actual WHITE LIVES MATTER PROTESTS when no one will be able to hug and shake hands together, National Anthem or no National Anthem.

Is that what we Americans want?
