A backlash against the National Football League’s embrace of “wokeball” is beginning to develop, with over 80 percent of season ticket holders for one team opting out for the upcoming season.
Green Bay Packers team president Mark Murphy made the announcement of the fan exodus over the weekend. He blamed the COVID-19 pandemic for the formerly hardcore fans rejecting the NFL product.
“The fact that that high a percentage of our fans were not comfortable coming to games was a factor that weighed into my thinking,” Murphy said in an interview published Saturday by Packers.com.
Green Bay is typically the NFL’s most rabid fan-base, with a massive annual waiting list for season tickets. This is no longer the case, as football rejects the patriotism that helped build its brand over the years.
“Obviously here in Green Bay, we know how much our home games mean to the local economy and to the local community,” Murphy said. “But at the end of the day the most important thing was protecting the health and safety of our community and our fans.”
Murphy believes that the NFL will be able to hold games with fans in attendance this year. Right now, the National Basketball Association (NBA) is hosting their games in a bubble with virtually no audience due to fears regarding the spread of COVID-19.
“Daily (COVID-19) testing gives us something compared to a bubble,” Murphy said.
Since the death of serial felon drug addict George Floyd spurred an orgy of racialized violence nationwide, the NFL has capitulated to the mob and embraced the anti-white, anti-American ideology of Black Lives Matter.
Big League Politics has reported on the NFL’s plans to play the so-called “Black National Anthem” before games this season:
The National Football League is planning to play what some call the “Black National Anthem” before every Week One game during the 2020 season, a nod to dissatisfaction with the American National Anthem within the league’s player base and the broader liberal social justice movement in the United States.
The league will feature the song ‘Lift Ev’ry Voice And Sing,’ playing it in a manner similar to how the Star Spangled Banner is traditionally played at games. Sources indicate that the former will be played before the latter.
NFL players will also be permitted the option of memorializing individuals who are allegedly the victims of police violence, wearing a sticker on their helmets with the names of individuals such as George Floyd.
There’s clearly a considerable demand among the player base and the mainstream media to wholly replace the American national anthem with an alternative suitably focused on racial identity politics, and it’s possible that the Star Spangled Banner could be replaced on a permanent basis with the new addition to NFL games.
As the NFL tunes away from traditionally unifying cultural practices such as the American national anthem in favor of a new racial identitarian approach, the league runs the risk of alienating much of its traditional viewer and fan base, who tire of the growing all-encompassing inclusion of social justice propaganda in every facet of American entertainment and society. However, the league’s leadership appears unconcerned, moving forward with a leftist cultural transformation of the once broadly culturally appealing football league.
The NFL may go on to become the most prominent example of the “get woke, go broke” phenomenon.
50-Year-Old Transgender ‘Woman’ is Hailed as a Hero for Joining a Female College Basketball Team
This is mass insanity.
A 50-year-old transgender “woman” is being hailed as a hero for joining a female college basketball team and playing alongside girls under half “her” age.
Gabrielle Ludwig, born Robert Ludwig before “she” had a sex change in July 2012, is being allowed to play college basketball for the Mission College (Calif.) women’s basketball team. She is being called a brave trailblazer and receiving gushing profiles from the fake news media for engaging in this bizarre and troubling spectacle.
The nauseating USA Today profile on Ludwig reads as follows:
“Come out and be Gabrielle the player,” head coach Corey Cafferata tells her. “You worked hard to get here. This damn team in here, everyone has your back!”
Ludwig nervously runs her hand over the sock approaching the tattoo on her leg. She has long been eager yet apprehensive about this moment. Can she still play? What will she hear from adults in the stands? What will her opponents on the court whisper? And can she keep her emotions in check? Glancing up from the dirty rug, she says she is calm. She didn’t know if this day could ever arrive: Tonight, before spectators who will cheer and curse her, she hits the reset button on her life.
The profile noted (surprise, surprise) that Ludwig has a history of mental illness that includes “one failed suicide attempt, two failed marriages” and went into how Ludwig was taking hormones behind his wife’s back. His own daughter refuses to coddle his delusions.
They also noted that a female referee refused to shake Ludwig’s hand and many people gawk at Ludwig while “she” is engaging in this humiliating and demeaning spectacle. Even though LGBT insanity is being pushed on Americans, they still instinctively know this is unnatural and wrong.
The USA Today profile concludes:
With her knee wrapped, Ludwig pulls her car out of the dark parking lot and begins the drive back to Fremont to spend time with her partner and take an online quiz for her music course. Even in defeat, even when told of remarks of the two Siskiyous spectators, she says she has never been happier.
“I found a home with a bunch of dysfunctional lesbians, one deaf kid and a transsexual woman,” she says, laughing. “This is my home. This is the team I fit in. I am that missing puzzle piece. It fits.”
When Ludwig looks in the mirror she sees a father, a maternal figure, a veteran, a scientist, a life partner, and something she has been waiting more than three decades to say again: a teammate.
“Through camaraderie, we kind of figure out where the hell we are in life … ” Ludwig says. “We as human beings, we just want to be loved.”
“Where is Robert Ludwig?” a reporter asks.
“Where is Robert Ludwig?” Ludwig says. “Gone.”
She pauses for a few seconds, takes a deep breath and softens and slows her voice as her eyes remain glassy.
“Robert Ludwig is gone,” she says. “And the person you have is Gabrielle Ludwig with everything Robert embodied and was … That person [Robert] should be honored. He was a great guy. Robert is gone. He was a great father. His spirit is still here. It’s just that the spirit matches the body, as it should be.”
This is the new morality that is replacing Christianity in the former land of the free. America is in a death spiral that is showing no signs of slowing down with the military installation of Biden as president.
