The NFL of today may have superior athletes physically, but they lack the American spirit. They have been conditioned to be anti-American by education and indoctrination
Former safety for the NFL Jets and Raiders, Burgess Owens, has standing to speak on the suicide the league is now engaged in. He understands why it’s happening and why it isn’t being stopped.
Owens puts the responsibility with the liberals who have taken over this nation, noting first the fault of the Department of Education, in that “we haven’t been teaching the free market in our school systems for a long time, so not only do the players not understand it but it appears that the people who are running the NFL have no clue about it. They are corporatists.”
Owens speaks admirably about the guys running the NFL when he was in it, Al Davis and Pete Rozelle, in particular. He says, “They grew up in a time when we were fighting wars and which we loved our country and every man really looked at themselves as being part of that. They didn’t talk about it a lot when it was all said and done, but it was a pride that they had and my dad was part of that.”
He contrasts that upbringing with what we have today, “young men who have been trained to be socialists and Marxists, because that’s what liberals do. And we have corporations run by socialists and Marxists. And unfortunately, they are clueless about our country and what makes it tick.”
He’s amazed that it was possible to ever mess up the NFL brand but “leave it to liberals. They’ll figure out a way to mess up anything that they’re a part of and that’s what they have done so far in this case here.”
He faults the owners for allowing Goodell to destroy their substantial investments in money and time, asking, “How can they let anybody take control of that and allow a person like Goodell, who has no clue about the free market to actually make these decisions.” He calls Goodell typical of liberals “pitying the black people.”
He says that if the NFL was an all-white organization, with all white players being disruptive, they would have made sure they owned up, stood up and did the right thing. “But for some reason, white liberals feel pity for the black race and that is the first problem we have to get over. We don’t need pity. What we need to do is have the same opportunity and the same parameters has anyone else has.”
“If these young men were given parameters last year, this is what you do or you’re fined, or you [incur] a penalty, this wouldn’t have happened, this conversation wouldn’t have happened.” He applauds President Trump for taking the patriotic stance he has, saying, “We need to get back to good old basics of loving our country, loving our God, standing up for what’s right. And if you don’t like it, demonstrate someplace else, but not during a time when most of us are trying to enjoy a game.”
