If anyone cares….
It’s just another Two Minutes’ Hate ginned up by the Social Justice Warriors. Rice will be quietly reinstated in six months, and he’ll sign with the Raiders in the offseason, and nobody will make a peep.
Regular reader Gary (one of about three; thanks Gary!) asked the other day for some examples of what leftists would do if they believed their own bullshit. I’d suggest that the same people who are now calling for Roger Goodell’s head, and Ray Rice’s ass, would — if they were consistent — have also demanded the following:
- The head of Sony Music’s chairman when Britney Spears criminally endangered her kids, losing custody of them in 2007.
- The everlasting embargo of Carmen Electra, after her arrest for domestic abuse against Dennis Rodman in 1999
- The head of CBS Broadcasting when pick one of Charlie Sheen’s many, many drug-and-domestic-abuse scandals came to light.
I’m betting there’s pretty much no overlap in those Venn diagrams, because 3 of 4 circles are pretty much empty.
As further evidence, I offer the ongoing SJW rage against Nike, after they re-signed Michael Vick to endorsement deals. What, you didn’t know they did that? I rest my case.
If I were Ray Rice, by the way, I’d be playing the race card for all its worth. You may not have noticed, for instance — because of the latest Ray Rice stuff — that Penn State is now mysteriously bowl-eligible this season. Convenient, that, coming as it does right after the Big 10 — i.e. the conference with the whitest fan base in all of football — laid an egg its opening weekend. Michigan sucks, Braxton Miller of Ohio State is out for the season, Wisconsin collapsed against LSU, Nebraska nearly lost to McNeese State, and whaddaya know? The only Big 10 team with any signs of football life is back in bowl contention.
You know, Penn State — where they covered up literally decades of child rape. No SJW outrage about that highly suspicious coincidence, eh?
