Martin Luther King Jr.

Hey, Hey, Hater Kansas City


cjones09152020

I know from the history of this website that I have readers who don’t watch football. I know. Crazy. I once had a reader tell me I should go into more depth to explain who Tom Brady is. But anyway, let me give the backstory to this.

Fans of the Kansas City Chiefs are racist assholes. There. Backstory done.

No? OK. I’ll provide more information.

In case you’re a Republican, Kansas City, where the Chiefs of the National Football League play, is in Missouri. It’s not in Kansas like Donald Trump believes. Seriously. But anyway, Thursday night was the kickoff to the new NFL season. While most game won’t have fans in attendance, the Chiefs allowed about 17,000 into the 60,000 plus stadium to watch the game. And during a moment of unity, the fans booed.

What? Who boos unity? Apparently, Kansas City boos unity.

Let’s get something straight here. To believe in unity is to believe in peace. To believe we’re all equal and should have the same civil rights, opportunities, and equality is not a crazy Democratic Party, radical-left, foie gras-eating, Birkenstock-wearing, long-haired hippy, commie ideal. It shouldn’t be political to believe we should all get along. It shouldn’t be partisan to think our children should live in a world where they’ll never experience hate directed at them.

After it was announced that in addition to the national anthem being performed before the game, that “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” considered to be the black national anthem, would also be performed, conservatives became outraged. How weird is that? If they weren’t told it was the black national anthem, they would have been fine with it. I’ll bet you a hairy nickel they wouldn’t have been outraged if the song being added was “Sweet Home, Alabama.”

Basically, these people are saying they’re done with the NFL because the league wants to be nice to black people. Donald Trump yells it’s why the ratings are going down.

Before, these jerks were outraged at Colin Kaepernick for kneeling during the national anthem and lied claiming he was disrespecting our troops when he was really taking a knee for equality and against racism and oppression.

Donald Trump, the leader of the racist conservative asshole movement in the United States doesn’t believe white privilege or systemic racism exists and that anyone who does has “drank the Kool-Aid.”

But in Kansas City, they took it a step further by booing unity. When the players of both teams locked arms for a moment of silence, it wasn’t silent. The crowd booed. Conservatives aren’t happy with loud protests or silent protests. So, when can we protest against racism? Oh, never? Yeah, that’s it. Donald Trump teargassed a peaceful crowd for protesting racism.

The Chiefs fans didn’t boo kneeling during the national anthem. They didn’t boo a statement like, “Defund the police.” They didn’t boo a giant picture of George Floyd. They didn’t boo the organization Black Lives Matter. They didn’t boo someone saying, “Black lives matter.” They booed equality. They booed peace. You would have thought from the boos that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was singing “Say It Loud, I’m Black and I’m Proud” while burning a pile of cheeseburgers and standing on an American flag.

But no, These fuckers were booing something anti-racist. It’s like they’re saying, “Hey, we’ll keep our racism, thank you very much.”

Booing unity is like booing puppies, tacos, and sandwiches. Puppies, tacos, and sandwiches are awesome. Everybody likes puppies, tacos, and sandwiches. But then again, the leader of the racist conservative asshole movement doesn’t like puppies, eats his tacos in a bowl, and only eats sandwiches from McDonald’s.

Last year, I was very happy for the coach of the Chiefs, Andry Reid. They won the Super Bowl and it was a long time coming for the old coach. I think Patrick Mahomes is the best quarterback in the league and he’s an awesome kid. But, I will be rooting against the Chiefs this year. I’m not so much rooting against the Chiefs as I am against Chiefs fans.

You booed unity, Kansas City. What the hell is wrong with you to boo unity?

Boo, Chiefs fans. They’re a bunch of racist jerks.

Hater Dreams

How long will a racist spend at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial when forced to go? About two minutes.

I can relate. It’s like going to a party you don’t want to go to, or has often been my case in the past, a band’s show. But, you feel you need to make an appearance, so you show up for a little while, engage one or two people in conversations, have a drink, then cut out. If you’re lucky, enough people will have seen you to say you were indeed there in case anyone asks. I mean, how many times do you need to hear the same band cover “Dirty Deeds?”

Normally, when you make the obligatory appearance, it takes longer than two minutes. That’s about how long Donald Trump and Mike Pence spent at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington yesterday on MLK Day. In their defense, it was cold, nobody was selling hamberders, and they’re racists.

While Democrats fanned out to public events across the nation to commemorate the holiday, the prez and his veep were in and out of the memorial faster than Mike and Karen Pence discovering they had accidentally walked into a gay wedding.

Mike Pence also commemorated the holiday the day before by comparing Donald Trump to MLK.  While on CBS’s Face the Nation, Pence said, “One of my favorite quotes from Dr. King was ‘Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy.’ King inspired us to change through the legislative process, to become a more perfect union. That’s exactly what President Trump is calling on Congress to do.”

Seriously, if Dr. King inspired you to use legislation to create medieval, racist, vanity projects, I don’t think you were listening very closely.

Certainly, Dr. King didn’t inspire Mike’s wife, Karen, to take a job at an anti-LGBT Christian school as an art teacher. Pence is upset over criticism his wife is receiving for teaching at the school that seeks to exclude homosexual and transgender students and staff members because of their “moral misconduct.” How dare people not tolerate their intolerance. If this teaching gig doesn’t work out, she can always apply at Catholic Covington where the students wear black-face at basketball games.

The good news is Pence oozes tolerance when it comes to worshiping a deity who paid hush money to porn stars. He’s a 19th century kind of guy.

What shouldn’t be tolerated is Pence comparing Dr. King to a man who sought to disavow the nation’s first black president with a racist birther theory, was slow to disavow David Duke, protested the removal of “beautiful Confederate monuments,” and approved of the “very fine people” marching with neo-Nazis in Charlottesville.

Trump was a young man during the Civil Rights movement. While Dr. King was protesting the Vietnam War, Trump was avoiding it by claiming he had bone spurs.

While Dr. King said he hopes there comes a day when his children are not “judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character,” Trump said his daughter has “got the best body” and if he wasn’t her father then he’d probably be dating her.

Dr. King won the Nobel Peace Prize. Trump can’t spell “Nobel Peace Prize.”

Dr. King donated his Nobel prize money to charity. Trump steals from charity.

Dr. King was Time Magazine’s Man of the Year. Trump hangs fake Time Magazine covers of himself in his snooty golf resorts.

Dr. King was defined by civil disobedience and was arrested for it 29 times. Trump says “fire that son of a bitch” when an NFL athlete protests and there should be limits on a free press.

Dr. King said, “We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear.” Donald Trump says, “Build the wall.”

One of these men inspired millions to fight for Civil Rights and equality. The other inspires millions to hate and oppress. One of these men asked America to open its mind and the other is telling us to close it.

MLK had a dream to make this nation better. Trump has a dream to make it worse and to get away with Russian collusion, obstruction of justice, tax fraud, and maybe dating his daughter. I don’t want to get in that head.

Mike Pence should stop the comparisons of Trump and Martin Luther King Jr. unless he’s pointing out that one was one of the greatest men in American history and the other is one of the most vilest persons to ever command a podium.
