The Kansas City Saturday Night Playlist!!! Celebrate Social Media Double Standards!!! OR Anthem Hater Marcus Peters Stays Winning Over BLM Critic Steve Clevenger!!!
Whenever somebody complains about life being unfair . . . That's a good time to tune out and start thinking about lunch or supermodels . . .
Accordingly, this headline has your drunk uncle angry this weekend . . .
New York Times: Steve Clevenger Suspended by Mariners for Tweets on Charlotte Protests
Is it fair?
OF COURSE NOT.
But again, life isn't fair and neither are interest rates.
Then again the rule of the current American culture war make angry white dudes nothing more than a running joke . . . At least until Trump wins the Presidential election and then we all find out the joke is on us.
Nevertheless . . . More than few folks taking note of this story still contend that the ongoing pro-athlete social justice protests claiming "free speech" now seem empty when that value isn't supported for remarks on the other end of the political spectrum.
And what does Marcus Peters think about all this??? Given that local media wants to keep his continued national anthem disrespect on the down low as to not upset their sponsorship deals.
As we go along our bloggy journey, we find ourselves more fascinated by interesting, alternative perspectives and good bawdy jokes more than the litany of talking points funded by either corrupt political party or any particular point of view.
Even so, it's best to try and have a sense of humor about it all . . .
In the final analysis, culture war protests amid big money games where billionaire owners and millionaire athletes are subsidized by increasingly overburdened municipal taxing districts across the nation seem like nothing more than continued distraction. Jocks and their political views hold very little real importance to the people really paying attention to the world in the precious few moments before the rise of Chinese hegemony.
And so, tonight we offer this playlist on the topic of fairness and other illusions . . .
As always, thanks for reading this week and have a safe and fun Saturday night.
