No surprise there.
What did surprise me was the subject matter being discussed by the panel of commentators; the behavior of Richie Incognito.
I'd never heard of Richie Incognito before. Now of course, I'll never forget him. Apparently Richie Incognito is a six foot three inch tall, 319 pound sociopath with a history of bravely torturing and intimidating smaller, weaker victims. Historically, a guy like Incognito would have been hailed as the darling of both the NFL and the American Family. The good news is that things seem to be changing. The bad news is that not everyone seems to get it.
The camera moved from one commentator to the next as each one struggled to feign shock and indignation. Obviously, someone who controls the purse strings for these guys ordered them to do so. They all said something suitably generic and politically correct except for Mike Ditka. He wondered why no one took Incognito outside and took a swing at him.
Well Mike...let's start with some simply arithmetic. Six feet...three inches...319 pounds...
Perhaps none of his victims wanted to end up like Bryan Boyd. Remember him Mike? Here's a link to the sociopaths who maimed Bryan Boyd for life. And here's another link to a woman who shamelessly reminds the world why George Sodini hated women. Enjoy a glass of Dickhead Vermeil's top shelf vintage and study hard Mike...you'll be tested later.
Enough ranting for now.
This weblog really isn't about the Richie Incognito's of America. It's about their enablers and how they make it easy for terrorists, mass murderers, serial killers, and other similar types to rationalize that the public deserves to be killed. I'm not a big fan of men who detonate truck bombs in front of buildings or spray bullets into crowded theatres and classrooms, but I understand why they do these things.
Terrorists feel comfortable attacking the public because the public dehumanizes itself by routinely displaying support for violent sociopaths like Richie Incognito, and by displaying depraved indifference toward their victims. No one who is civilized enough to have earned the right to complain about terrorism would be caught dead attending a game where an obvious sociopath like Richie Incognito is playing.
Stay home stupid. The life you save may be someone you've never met.
