Americans are, and have always been, a no-nonsnse and fiercely patriotic people, but the rise of the Social Justice movement is threatening this tradition.
While there are a number of disturbing facets associated with the Social Justice junket, nothing seems more egregious at times than their willingness, (and ability), to annoy conservative Americans at the drop of a hat. This is no ordinary skill either, with the radical left and their culture-shaping cretins picking the most painful places in American tradition to do their damnedest dirty work.
We send our children off to college in this uncertain world and the radical left moves onto campus in order to indoctrinate them. This becomes a nightmare for parents and loved ones alike, as we must then endure a phase of liberalism in the blossoming minds of our youth. Thankfully, a great number of our children will grow out of this stage of societal metamorphosis, but our prayers go out to those who do not.
The left has also been targeting symbols of our patriotism as well, in order to petulantly garner a reaction from traditional Americans. Nowhere has this dramatic reality been more apparent than within the NFL, where the Social Justice junkies have all but commandeered the National Anthem for themselves.
This purposefully disrespectful maneuver, aimed wholly at the hearts and minds of America’s conservative backbone, has one man angry enough to take action against his team of choice.
“A Morgan City man is suing the New Orleans Saints for a refund on his season tickets because some players have disrespected the national anthem before games this season.
“Lee Dragna filed a lawsuit Monday in 24th Judicial District Court in Gretna seeking a refund for the tickets as well as attorney’s fees, claiming the protest by some players against police brutality and racial injustice has prevented him and his family from enjoying the games.
“Dragna said he hasn’t attended a game since the first home game of the 2017 season against the New England Patriots, on Sept. 17, when he said some of the players did not come out for the singing of the national anthem.
“He said the behavior of some fans upset by the protests — cursing, spilling beer — is ‘borderline dangerous,’ though he said he thinks the responsibility for that behavior ultimately rests not with the fans but with owner Tom Benson.
“’The Saints created that behavior by condoning it,’ he said.
“’It’s my thought pattern that (players) should not be allowed (to protest),’ he said. ‘If you sell tickets to a gaming event for entertainment, you should not be allowed to turn it political.’”
Dragna will almost certainly be facing an uphill battle in the court system, but the motivation behind his lawsuit is pure and true.
The NFL has been hemorrhaging support and cash over the course of the last 12 months thanks to these pedantic protests, that are truly nothing more than publicity stunts for otherwise unnoticeable players. Even if Dragna’s suit is tossed by some meddling liberal judge, the sentiment of his argument will remain, and perhaps even find itself galvanized by the legal process.
Furthermore, the massive losses already experienced by the league this season could prevent Dragna from even receiving a settlement from doomed organizations such as the Saints, who have bore the weight of these pathetic protests with a massive loss of ratings and revenue due to their unwillingness to address this fan-driven issue.
