According to one Fox Sports essayist, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell “could and should free the gays.”
Glorifying the homosexual agenda as “heroic” and doing his level best to plateau gay/bisexual NFL players (and their cohorts) with actual civil rights champions, columnist Jason Whitlock recently published an article that should earn him accolades from GLAAD or some such LGBT confederation.
In the piece, “Goodell can bring gay tolerance to NFL,” Whitlock doesn’t miss a trick. As a matter of fact, he customs the fashionably ignoble tactics liberals are known for in promoting self-serving, dubious itineraries to a proverbial “t.”
Whitlock’s piece interjects the orthodox euphemisms one expects from social “progressives.” Positive sounding words like “tolerance, free[dom], courage, enlightened, rational, and hero/role model,” for example, are ascribed to gays and those who advocate homosexual “rights,” so called.
Conversely, dissidents are abased with terms like, “homophobic, anti-gay, hostile, and discrimination.” Describing them as individuals that should be treated with “the same heavy hand he [Goodell] uses on players for illegal hits and off-field incidents.”
About the only thing missing from Mr. Whitlock’s diatribe is a re-write of Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream” speech, replacing every instance of “race” with “sexual orientation.”
As is typical for moral relativists, the writer also makes wild and speculative factual claims to prop up his views – contrary to statistical data which indicates homosexuals constitute less than 4% of the U.S. population, Whitlock’s “honest” and “reasonable” estimate is that “15 percent of NFL players are gay and/or bisexual,” nearly 4 times the average of the rest of the populace.
As is common, non-homosexuals who shill for special consideration (after all, that’s what it’s really all about) for militant homosexuals do so based on something personally anecdotal, rather than sound, fixed, objective moral values. For instance, the article makes reference to Goodell’s “…openly gay brother” while Whitlock “As a child, had a lesbian aunt [he] was extremely close to.”
Treating a group of people, as Jason Whitlock does, who self-identify based on arguably deviant sexuality which frankly, traditional, biblical values describe as inappropriate, unnatural, unacceptable, etc., like they were captive slaves is disingenuous in the extreme and most untoward and insensitive, especially coming from a black man.
But such is the sort of rhetoric used to permeate every institution (like the NFL of late) and hammer home the subversive goals of the LGBT movement. These are the brand of underhanded tactics this controversial writer has become known for.
