Our new National Pastime

I liked the old one a lot better.

By moving the all-star game out of Atlanta, the morally narcissistic ignoramuses who run Major League Baseball have inadvertently given us the defining moment in the ultimate decline and fall of the United States of America as we know it.

Forget the actual details of the Georgia voting law they claim to be protesting. Facts are immaterial. The national pastime has joined the ranks of the “woke” virtue signalers.

Virtue signaling itself has become our national pastime.

Everyone, at least that percentage of the country who voted for the current president, practice it on a daily or even hourly basis, like a catechism.

The president himself we could call the Virtue Signaler-in-Chief. He began his “virtuous” journey in law school where he was almost ejected for plagiarism, begged to stay in, and then later told us he graduated at the top of his class. (He actually graduated at the bottom, as would any plagiarist, if they graduated at all.)

And then there were numerous other “virtuous” cases of plagiarism, including from the British politician Neil Kinnock, but no matter. Our great legal scholar president knows the Georgia election law is wrong. Not only is it wrong, it’s racist.

So he led the charge in moving the game out of Atlanta and essentially gave permission to the league executives to make their reactionary move.

The result, baseball is virtually dead from virtual signaling. Call it murder by idiotic ideology.

But baseball is just a game and America is no such thing. It was once the beacon of all humanity when it came to democracy and freedom but that is no more.

Like any good moral narcissist (i. e. he or she who virtue signals) we are no longer liberty and freedom lovers. We are now “woke.”

“Woke,” however, is not an American idea. Neither were, completely, the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights. To some extent they came from Europe, influenced, as many readers know, by John Locke, among others, but they were developed and enhanced in a uniquely American way by Jefferson, Madison, et al. The Federalist Papers were a flower of the Enlightenment.

Not so “woke.” Its antecedents are entirely European and have little to do with democracy and freedom and everything to do with a kind of neo-Marxist, top-down power game of a fascistic nature.

The American idea and ”woke” are, in essence, opposites.

Well, naturally. With the latter waging an all-but-shooting war (for now) in their perennial campaign to eradicate the former, how could it be otherwise?

Another funny thing those corporate Woketards who are calling for the smelling salts over Georgia’s modest stab at cleaner, less-fraudulent elections would prefer you not to think about: those same MLB suits require one to present…wait for it…WAIT FOR IT…photo ID when picking up one’s tickets at the Will Call window. The Delta Airlines CEO who is also all a-dither over same? Yeah, just you TRY to board a Delta flight without that photo ID, boy-o.

Coca Cola? Meh, fuck ’em in the liver with a rusty railroad spike.

Funny, too, how those high-and-holy corporate Righteously Indignants™ have uttered no (0) peeps as of this writing as to the other Georgia ballgames currently on the schedule—all 82 of ’em.

Boycott Georgia? Hell with that; boycott Major League Baseball, Delta, and Coca Cola, sez I. And on that score, I’m keeping pretty good company.

  1. I’d boycott baseball but I haven’t watched in at least 20 years, and then only the series for the 20 prior to that. I’ve already been boycotting delta for the last set of shenanigans they pulled. That leaves me coke, so I guess I’ll have to buy UNC grads / NC concoction Pepsi 🙂

  2. Been off Coke for being Woke three weeks now and five pounds lighter. I’ll probably never fly Delta again, CNN sucks, and I gave up on baseball decades ago. NFL, NHL and of course the NBA can all piss off as well. Hopefully that other fine Georgia corporation, UPS, can manage to steer clear of the Woke charade. Retiring from my job in early July instead of next April because of Wokeness proclomations emanating from the administration of the medical university hospital of which I am employed. Will not do the 4 hours of diversity and inclusion training, don’t believe in it and will not be subjected to the bullshit, so bye-bye.
