WOKE ISM !



Late last week, while DeMaurice Smith faced a vote regarding the future of his tenure as executive director of the NFLPA, the Wall Street Journal reported that Gruden wrote an email to Allen that called Smith dumb and ridiculed Smith's big lips. Corporate media quickly framed Gruden's lip comment as racist. Smith just as quickly framed himself as a victim of a race crime and garnered the necessary votes to stave off removal as executive director.



But let's review the seven woke commandments Gruden violated with his emails, according to the New York Times.

1) Thou shalt not disparage Barack Obama. The Times revealed Gruden criticized President Obama during his 2012 re-election campaign. This is an explosive revelation. A U.S. citizen criticized a presidential candidate.


2) Thou shalt not push back against the Big Lips Matter movement. Big Lips Matter is the DeMaurice Smith faction of the Black Lives Matter movement. Many white women, particularly Instagram models and the actress Angelina Jolie, passionately support Big Lips Matter.


3) Thou shalt not question hiring practices based on sexual and gender identity. Gruden apparently felt NFL commissioner Roger Goodell overstepped his authority when he pressured former Rams coach Jeff Fisher to draft Missouri defensive end Michael Sam because Sam is queer. Gruden also isn't a fan of the NFL's policy of fast-tracking women through the referee process so the league can have more female refs.


4) Thou shalt not disagree with national anthem protesters. Gruden said that Eric Reid, a prominent anthem protester, should be fired.


5) Thou shalt not look fondly upon bare female breasts. Gruden and his male friends exchanged pictures of topless women via email. Most men do this via text string. At least that's what I've been told.


6) Thou shalt not speak honestly about Joe Biden. Gruden called Biden a "nervous clueless p---y." Seems a bit harsh. President Biden never seems nervous to me. He seems sedated.


7) Thou shalt not defend football. Gruden complained that Goodell's safety policies were an overreaction and made mothers fear allowing their sons to play football.



The hypocrisy of the people cheering Gruden's cancellation is breathtaking. These same people were quiet when actor Michael Rappaport aired out NBA star Kevin Durant's homophobic, profane, misogynistic, and threatening direct messages.
I'm consistent on all of this stuff. Durant and Gruden have a right to privacy and the right to express opinions polite society finds abhorrent. Durant apologized, the NBA fined Durant $50,000, and everyone moved on. That's what should have happened to Jon Gruden. But Gruden is white and held to a much higher standard of accountability. This is racist. The woke religion allows for and promotes racism. It also loves double standards.
The NFL recently announced that rappers Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, and Enimem will star in the league's Super Bowl halftime show. Dre, Snoop, and Em have a catalogue of music that makes Gruden's emails sound like a Sunday school lesson.
Gruden's private emails make him unfit to work on the NFL's platform. Meanwhile, a collection of pornographic and profane rappers are the perfect choice to showcase on popular culture's largest platform.


The NFL's lack of self-awareness is stunning. Roger Goodell is the worst commissioner in the history of professional sports. The NFL has no guiding principles and no moral compass. It's led by the woke cult and social media.
If you remove the crass words and interpret the message, that's what Jon Gruden was really complaining about in his emails — the NFL's lack of leadership and direction.
It will be interesting to see if Gruden bends his knee and converts to the woke religion. Will he join all the other closeted men in modern America? That closet is filled with millions of heterosexual, Christian men who now live in shame of their values and beliefs because the Alphabet Mafia will damn them to hell on earth.

Wow, does he also lose the lucrative royalties that come with that honor?

Local radio guys up here said they were horrified by grudens comments, said it was inconceivable how anyone could talk or think like that. I guess they've never heard of anti gay slurs like faggot before, and these are grown men, just imagine going through life like that?

gruden was right about womens refs, they are horrible, look at womens hoops. also the diveristy movement is hurting the calls in nfl games, there is a few good black refs, but too many of the black refs have agendas and make calls as such. there was a black ref that handed the charger brown game to the chargers on 2 phantom pi calls on 4th downs

Why differentiate black and white refs? Why can’t you just say refs?

You are pure racist and homophobic….one is not born a racist…your teachers or parents really dealt you a losing hand…

We differentiate because by and large they are not qualified, they didn't earn the jobs. The truth is Gruden was right about pretty much everyone of his comments, especially the ones about going out of your way to draft gay players, that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

It should be pointed out that the Buccaneers, trying to be woke here, have signed in the past year one player charged with sexual assault (Antonio Brown) and another charged with domestic violence (Seymour). So much for their supposed "high road".

Being charged is one thing (BTW there is a saying re being innocent until proven guilty). Being guilty, as Gruden is, is another animal altogether.

How do you know he wrote those emails - the media claimed most if not all of the bad stuff on hunter bidens laptop was fake.

Gruden should have said the Russians hacked his e mail acct.

Gruden has already apologized & resigned. He appears to be guilty of something & to be acknowledging it. Unlike others merely accused of something & or denying the accusations of their accusers, as opposed to apologizing & resigning (as Gruden did).

So written emails are worse than acts of violence? And Sherman did apologize for his actions, which you mention as an admission of guilt. As for Brown, he'll never apologize for anything because he's too arrogant and too big of an asshole. He's had numerous run ins, and where there's smoke, there's fire. Anyone think Brown is innocent of anything is incredibly naive.

Obviously not. But irrelevant to any point i was making.

Your post made no mention of Sherman. Or anyone apologizing.

You've made yourself judge, jury & executioner. Thankfully the legal system doesn't work the way vigilantes wish it would.

The initial post meant Sherman not Seymour. I got the names mixed up as both are NFL players who've had domestic violence issues. When I said the Bucs, it should've been clear who I was referring to. Sherman apologized so I'm judge, jury and exectioner? You just said earlier that Gruden's apology was an admission of guilt. Both apply. And anyone who really thinks Brown is innocent from all the crap he's had in the past, is an extreme bleeding heart liberal. Let me guess; it was all systemic racism that caused that behavior from Brown.

That is all largely, if not completely, irrelevant to my original point in post #63.

As for your query re Sherman, that's a dumb question since my comment was obviously not in reply to anything about Sherman but what you said about Brown.

We Should Be Able To Shit Can Politicians Just As Easily.

RESIGNED.

That's The New Term For Getting Shit Canned.

It's Less Denigrating.

Resign, or Get Shit Canned.

NFL was pissed off at Mark Davis for giving John Gruden a 10 year 100 million dollar guaranteed contract.

The owners are happy to see this contract terminated.

Gruden's Contract was the motivating factor for leaking the emails.
