Because everything is now political, liberals are plotting to ruin the Super Bowl, plotting a large protest outside of Houston’s Reliat. Because heaven forbid anyone anywhere have a moment of politics free peace and quiet with their family.
The movement, “Resist Houston,” as a who’s who of America’s most radical goofballs. Per USA Today:
Groups and community members involved thus far include members of the following groups: Black Lives Matter, socialists, abolitionists, communists, native Americans, Muslims, Jews, Hispanics, LGBT community members and the local Democratic party. Also planning to be on the scene: Opponents of circumcision. For real.
“We are seeing the petty differences between our groups matter less than what we agree on,’’ said Amy Zachmeyer, lead organizer for the Houston chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America.
Houston police chief Art Acevedo said his department won’t be caught flat-footed by the protests.
“I’m sure there will be more,’’ he told USA TODAY Sports earlier this week. “You always prepare for them to happen.’’
Specifically, these lunatics and their allies in the mainstream media are furious about Tom Brady and Bill Belichick refusing to say that Donald Trump is a fascist who’s trying to destroy America. Because nowadays, if you’re to the right of Hillary Clinton, it means you support a fascist.
But Townhall’s Christine Rousselle gets into why the Patriots might admire President Trump:
Patriots Owner Robert Kraft is a Democrat who happens to be friends with Donald Trump. When Kraft’s wife Myra passed away in 2011, Trump called Kraft weekly for a full year to check in on him, which is a pretty nice thing to do and seems like a genuine friendship. Bill Belichick, the Patriots head coach, wrote Trump a letter wishing him well and hoping for him to make America great again on Election Day. QB Tom Brady is friends with Trump–they’re golfing buddies, and Brady had a MAGA hat in his locker at one point. And given that Brady skipped out on the White House visit to meet Obama, he may even be (gasp!) a Republican.
Of course, none of this actually matters. Brady’s job is to throw touchdowns, not to advise the president on foreign policy or any other issue. So far, he seems like he’s doing a pretty damn good job at throwing touchdowns. The same goes for Belichick. His job is to win football games, and, well, he’s won a bunch of them. As for Kraft, is it exactly breaking news that two billionaires are friends? A friendship with a person is in no way endorsing all of their beliefs. I have friends across the political spectrum, and it makes sense that these people do too. Hanging out in an echo chamber is boring.
And even if Brady, Belichick, Kraft et al. were hardcore Trump supporters, that still wouldn’t matter. People are allowed to have political views and leanings that diverge from the area where they live. Some people in the Boston area are reportedly quite upset that their favorite football team has ties to Trump, and have stopped supporting the team as such.
Americans across the political spectrum love football. The Super Bowl is a chance for us to come together despite our differences and forget about the world for a little while. Liberals who think disrupting that comity will help them are utter fools.
