The Assimilation of the NFL by the “New Borg” Continues as the Cowboys Take a Knee and Villanueva Apologizes

A-Knee-600a-LI

If you are a Star Trek Fan, you already know who “The Borg” are.

For those of you who have never heard of them, the Borg are an alien manufactured “race” that appear as “bad guys” in the Star Trek franchise. The Borg are a seemingly endless attack force of “drones”, or cybernetic organisms who are linked together in a hive mind called “the Collective”, or “the Hive”. The Borg acquire through the means of force the technology and knowledge of other alien species to the Collective via a process of “assimilation”. They forcibly transform individuals into drones by violently implanting microscopic machines, or nanoprobes, into their bodies while augmenting them with cybernetic components. The Borg’s ultimate goal is “achieving perfection”.

Why did I begin my post with Star Trek Lore?

Because, boys and girls, America is now fighting our own war with a “New Borg”…

And they are assimilating everyone and every American Institution in their path.

Their current target for assimilation is the NFL.

And, according to the already-assimilated Main Stream Media, they have succeeded.

Per The New York Times

The image was striking — several owners of N.F.L. teams locking arms with their players on the sidelines Sunday in a dramatic statement of defiance to a president who ridiculed their sport and condemned players for refusing to stand during the national anthem as a protest against racism.

And then on Monday night, the league’s most prominent owner knelt with his entire team.

Beyond the appearance of unity, though, is a far different reality: The owners have done little to support players who protest to fight social injustice. A few owners have told their players that kneeling for the anthem is inappropriate.

The owners by and large are a white, conservative group of billionaires, several of them big-dollar donors to President Trump. They have generally discouraged their players, about three quarters of whom are African-American, from anything that overshadows throwing passes and making tackles.

These are the same owners who allowed junk science produced by league-sponsored doctors to paper over the growing scientific consensus that repeated head hits are linked to long-term brain damage. They have warred repeatedly, aggressively and publicly with players over labor issues.

And as for Colin Kaepernick, the quarterback who inspired the anthem protests by kneeling in order to raise awareness about racial oppression and police brutality toward African-Americans, no owner has deemed him worthy of job, despite widespread handicapping that, while not in his prime, he certainly still is of a caliber to play.

It is certainly true that some owners, most notably Arthur M. Blank of the Atlanta Falcons and Stephen M. Ross of the Miami Dolphins, have tried through charitable work to address the many thorny problems around racism, poverty and policing. It took a rebuke from Mr. Trump to compel many of them to choose between remaining silent or publicly siding with the players.

Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, keeping with his preference for dramatic flourishes, went further than any other owner when he knelt with his team before the national anthem for his team’s game with the Cardinals in Glendale, Ariz. Before Monday, Jones had been among the most vocal owners in saying he preferred that his players stand for the anthem.

But the public demonstration of unity and support may be short-lived.

While it is too early to know if the protests will continue, and in what form, Shahid Khan, the owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars and on Sunday the first owner to be seen linking arms with his players on the sidelines, has said he would not continue the practice in the coming weeks.

“I’m not a crusader, but this was a Rosa Parks moment for the Jaguars,” he said. “I do not plan any future sideline appearances.”

The owners’ decision to go with the players at least this time struck some as a fallback to protecting the league brand, embodied in its ubiquitous shield emblem with the American flag motif.

“This issue is about protecting the shield,” said Andy Dolich, a former N.F.L. team executive. “There’s a subliminal dollar sign in that shield, so it is fair to be cynical” about the owners’ motives.

League executives, however, said they had minimal involvement in the owners’ or players’ actions.

And, if you haven’t hurled yet, this should bring your last meal up…

The only member of the Pittsburgh Steelers to take the field for the anthem now says he regrets his actions and apologized to his teammates and coach Monday. Alejandro Villanueva, a Steelers lineman and U.S. Army veteran, was pictured standing alone before Sunday’s game during the national anthem while the rest of the team refused to take the field in protest. His stand has made his jersey one of the top sellers in the NFL.

“Unfortunately I threw my teammates under the bus, unintentionally,” Villanueva said in a press conference Monday. “Every single time I see that picture of me standing by myself I feel embarrassed.”

The team had apparently agreed Saturday evening to stay in the tunnel, but Villanueva made a last-minute decision Sunday to get a look at the flag, telling only the team leaders. However, when the anthem started with him alone, outside the tunnel, he said it would have “looked extremely bad” to walk back to his teammates, according to ESPN.

He apologized for breaking ranks without giving others the opportunity to join him.

“When everybody sees a picture of me standing by myself, everybody thinks the team and the Steelers are not behind me, and that’s absolutely wrong,” Villanueva said. “The entire team would have been out there with me, even the ones who wanted to take a knee would have been there with me.”

Villanueva said his team would have joined him if they had known about the “extreme circumstances” he was going through before the game. Villanueva said he had soldiers and wounded veterans texting him to make sure he would take the field. He said the fact that they were about to play at Soldier Field also influenced him.

According to WPXI, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and defensive lineman Cam Heyward wanted to go with him in solidarity, but were blocked by congestion in the tunnel before the anthem. Villanueva confirmed that report Monday, according to the station.

Villanueva, who has been celebrated widely by those who aren’t in favor of NFL players kneeling in protest, said he feels bad that his action broke an appearance of unity among the Steelers.

“I’ve made the Steelers look bad, and that is my fault and my fault only,” Villanueva said. He also apologized to coach Mike Tomlin and the rest of the team.

The situation, which we as a nation, find ourselves in today, is one which our Founding Fathers sought valiantly to avoid.

Thanks to a Previous Imperious Presidency, we are suffering under a “Tyranny of the Minority”.

This minority is not based on color, rather, it is one based on political ideology and self-interest.

If this  minority, including the Main Stream Media, had gotten their wish, the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton, would have been elected President of our country, and what we are witnessing on our streets, on our college campuses, and now on our Professional Football Stadiums, would not be happening.

Unfortunately, I believe that we are experiencing only the opening rounds of a long fight, the fascist tyranny which the poor losers of a political minority are now attacking our nation with will not only continue, it will EXPAND.

As the past several years have shown, this minority, buoyed by money from their “sponsors”, including the Halls of Power in Washington, DC, are willing to shut down anyone who threatens “what they’ve got” by ANY MEANS NECESSARY, including political devices, such as heavily weighted push polls, and a sycophantic totally bought and paid for Main Stream Media helping them to promote and espouse a belief system, which we, as a country, have gone to war against in the past.

My late father was one of thousands of brave young American men, who landed on the beaches of Normandy , France on June 6, 1944, in the military operation which broke the backs of the Nazis, leading to the end of World War II,  now known as D-Day.

World War II was a war against Fascism.

What is Fascism? Per merriam-webster.com, it is a

political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.

Ladies and gentlemen, I firmly believe that America is now fighting a new war against fascism.

It’s not a war that is being fought with guns and bullets, But instead with state referendums, Congressional votes, Executive Orders, judicial activism, and FAR Left-sponsored and organized Political Activists.

And, it’s not our Brightest and Best who are dying on this field of battle, but rather, it is our American Way of Life, our History, and our Institutions which are dying an ignoble death, pierced by the arrows of socialism and political correctness.

By now, there’s some out there in the audience saying, “Oh Lord, the crazy old cracker’s overreacting again.”

No, Skippy, I’m not.

If you try to talk to a Liberal about this New Fascism, they will deny that there is any fascism going on at all. In fact, they will tell you that this is “the will of the people” and they will site Democratically stacked push polls in order to back their opinion up.

In other words, just like the fictional Borg, this New Borg WILL assimilate you or else you will be branded a racist and a “fascist”, which, in itself, is an extremely sick bit of irony.

I have no doubt that Villanueva, the Former Army Ranger who stood out in that tunnel with his hand over his heart during our national anthem last Sunday, was lectured to the point of assimilation by his coach, his teammates, and perhaps even the Team Ownership.

In Star Trek, there was a “Borg Queen”, who was controlling the “Hive-Mind”. Now, you probably think that I will tell you that Roger Goodell is the “Borg King” in this situation. However, I believe that he is just another drone, taking orders from the Liberal Hierarchy in Washington, D.C., where his old friend, Former President Barack Hussein Obama lives.

There is another name that I could mention. However, you have probably thought of a certain puppet master’s name, already.

The saving grace in this situation is the indomitable will of average Americans, who showed how they felt about the failed political ideology behind the NFL Protests went they elected Donald J Trump as our 45th President.

That conviction and strength of will among average Americans has not changed, as shown through the very public backlash against the NFL, which includes a diminishing income for the league.

Just like those who have gone on before us, average Americans will continue to fight fascism and the failed political ideology that it always brings with it.

We will continue to “rage against the dying of the light”.

And, the Star Spangled Banner will still wave,

O’er the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.

Until He Comes,

KJ
