Michael Sam: To call him Heroic Obliterates the Meaning of the Word

Matt Walsh,

May 12, 2014

Let’s just cut to the chase. We’ve all read this script before.

If you do anything less than fall to your knees weeping tears of jubilation that a man who is sexually attracted to men was picked to play a game for a living — you’re a homophobe.

It doesn’t really matter why you aren’t joining in the celebration, or why you aren’t using words like ‘historic’ and ‘revolutionary’ to describe a scenario where a homosexual fellow plays a sport with some other fellows, and is paid handsomely and applauded loudly for doing so.

It doesn’t matter what reasoning you provide, or what sort of logic you employ, when attempting to explain why Michael Sam’s likeness shouldn’t necessarily be etched into Mount Rushmore just because he took it upon himself to alert the media of his sexual habits a few months before being selected in the 7th round of the NFL Draft.

It doesn’t matter what you say when trying to articulate why the President of the United States of America probably doesn’t need to release an official White House statement to congratulate someone for being gay and athletic.

It doesn’t matter. None of it matters. Nothing is acceptable but complete and total adherence to the prevailing cultural dogma. You are only allowed to think a certain way about these kinds of things. Any thought, or statement, or phrase, or utterance that deviates from the zeitgeist by even the slightest degree will earn you the label of homophobic bigot, and that’s just all there is to it.

POLL: Is the Internet Destroying the power of the MainStream Media?

So, while I’m not a bigot, and while I’m not ‘homophobic,’ and while I generally carry about my day very much unconcerned with the sexual proclivities of football players from Missouri, I nonetheless feel the need to be a voice of reason amidst this whole spectacularly ridiculous charade. Therefore, I will be called a bigot, because that’s how America has been trained to react to anyone who questions popular opinion.

So be it.

I don’t care.

I really don’t.

I’m not celebrating Michael Sam, I don’t think anything historic occurred at any point during the NFL Draft (besides the fact that the Raiders actually made a few good decisions), I find this spectacle to be rather embarrassing, I question the motivations of everyone involved, including Michael Sam, and I’ll give you several reasons why:

1) You don’t get to have it both ways. You can tell me that your sexuality is nobody’s business — what you do in your bedroom is between you and whoever you do it with — and I’ll agree. I’ve never taken it upon myself to approach a group of strangers and survey them about their carnal propensities. In my life, I’ve probably had thousands of conversations with thousands of different people. Of those thousands, I can safely say that not once have I begun the exchange by saying, “Hello, my name is Matt. Do you sleep with people of the same gender?”

Seriously, that’s never happened. OK, maybe I can’t say never, but rarely. The point is, I usually don’t grab strangers by their shirt collars and demand that they paint me a vivid portrait of their erotic activities.

Your sexuality is none of my business, right? Yes. Fine. Sounds good to me.

But this “none of my business” shtick is a two way street, friend. What exactly does it mean for a thing to be “none of my business” when you’re holding a press conference and proclaiming it to the entire world?

“Hey, this is personal, man. That’s why I’m throwing a parade, alerting the media, issuing a press release, having t-shirts printed, and booking an interview on 20/20.”

To pay or support to watch pro perverts is  degrading and a shame now across America. I guess the NFL will allow sodomy in the locker rooms to help build the team up for the "Other game"

The world turned upsidedown!  What should be shameful and a disgrace is now held up as something wonderful for our children to follow?  If you are a muz, then you are praised and admired by the olblamea regime pinkhouse.  If you are "gay" oh yes dahhhhhlineg the limpristed cheef in charge is laying down red carpets of welcome for you!  I can't stand the mother fkers!  I don't want to see you and your  behaviors that contradict Scripture!  Yea, look at what happened to Soddom and Gomorrah. 

I'm done with all major sports. And this is coming from a die hard fan. You can't watch any of them without politics or PC involved. Even NASCAR, Jimmie Johnson, doing a commercial with Hollywood about removing the word "Bossy" from the dictionary. WTF. At least they still pray before races and "under God" is still in the Pledge of Allegiance, except when they race in Chicago. I now get my sports from the local soft ball games and baseketball courts.

the opposite of heroic is or should be....... ZEROIC!! or why attempt to fly with heroes when your surrounded by zeros

THE OLD ADDAGE OF "DON'T ASK DON'T TELL" WOULD HAVE BEEN MOST HELPFUL HERE! AFTER ALL OUR "BISEXUAL" PRESIDENT IS PRACTISING IT!   ( CHICAGO BATH HOUSES AND NOW DECEASED GAY LOVER!)

What the media wants here is a Dr. Seuss reaction, sort of like, "Sam I am!"  Not from us, bi-ddy, no way.  We should all boycott the stupid games anyway.   Half the seats are empty these days, with camera crews scrambling to hide the fact that nobody cares about a bunch of Homo erectus running around on a cowfield--& now HOMO homo erectus!

Yea, remember that, I remember someone named Larry Sinclair?  Sinclair came forth with evidence that he and little barryoh did cocaine and had "intimate relations."

Yes! You are right on!  Who cares? In my opinion all this attention is just a way to promote homosexuality. Let's see, the powers that be want to murder babies in the womb and promote homosexuality.  The result of both of these policies reduces population. Hmmmmmmmmm...........................

They are promoting it on everything:  Commercials, tv shows that pass for entertainment. Guys acting like girls,,,,,,,,,they don't have any idea of how assinine they all look.

What God calls a sin...is a sin.  This is a SIN!

I suppose the next step for "progressives" will be to call pedophiles that pop out of the closet, heroic. 

Paul Z:  Yes that's what they are doing.

Jack Minor, in his column titled “Pedophiles want same rights as homosexuals,” wrote:

Using the same tactics used by “gay” rights activists, pedophiles have begun to seek similar status arguing their desire for children is a sexual orientation no different than heterosexual or homosexuals.

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
