"As I explained on my radio show, this spectacle is bigger than I am on several levels. There is a contempt in the news business, including the sportswriter community, for conservatives that reflects the blind hatred espoused by Messrs. Sharpton and Jackson. "Racism" is too often their sledgehammer. And it is being used to try to keep citizens who don't share the left's agenda from participating in the full array of opportunities this nation otherwise affords each of us. It was on display many years ago in an effort to smear Clarence Thomas with racist stereotypes and keep him off the Supreme Court. More recently, it was employed against patriotic citizens who attended town-hall meetings and tea-party protests. These intimidation tactics are working and spreading, and they are a cancer on our society."And on the NFL. As I said before I'm absolutely sure that conservatives make up the lion share of money that comes to the NFL through television rights, merchandising and attendance.
There is no way that any red blooded conservative should support an organization that routinely supports the suppression of conservative rights. Therefore I've cancelled my participation in the 2009 NFL season and will continue to do so until I see significant changes.
I love the game of football too, but today I walked every bit of NFL gear out to the dumpster and tossed it. Additionally my participation is more than nominal - I will not mention to the extent - but I'm canceling that as well. But I can't do it on my own.
I'm calling for conservative bloggers everywhere to follow suit. Rush listeners called in droves this week talking about canceling season tickets, and NFL packages on cable and dish TV.
The NFL is in a crunch right now trying to squeak out dollars everywhere. This is the time to hit them, when they are down and get the message to them loud and clear that we are not going to tolerate this discrimination against conservatives.
Pass the word, do your duty conservatives.
