Brett Favre is right about being “woke.”

According to Shalise Manza Young, of Yahoo Sports, “Brett Favre’s bleating about politics in sports is rank with privilege, ignorance and hypocrisy.”

Brett Favre, of course, is the former NFL quarterback, and Hall of Famer, who played for the Green Bay Packers, New York Jets, and the Minnesota Vikings.

Before I start hammering you, regarding your idiotic comments, Shalise, are you related to Androgynous Pat?”  

Just wondering.  

Well, anyway, let’s get back to Shalise Manza Young’s comments.

“One of the things about being in this position is that you have to do your best to be fair. Journalism shouldn’t be a lack of objectivity, because that’s impossible; every human approaches a story through their lens, colored by their experiences. It should be about fairness.”

Wait, what?

Did she just say, “It should be about fairness?”

Fairness, yes…, and also peoples’ rights to have their own opinions.  

To wit: Writers love interview subjects who are fun, frank, even unpredictable. We want people to say what’s on their mind because it makes for better stories.”

It also makes it easier for you and your kind to beat people over the head you don’t agree with…, right Sharise?  

“But as a human being, seeing Brett Favre still bleating the same privileged, narrow-minded, anti-Black rhetoric makes my blood boil.”

How do you get “privileged, narrow-minded, anti-Black rhetoric” out of his “frank” opinion, which everyone has a right to, except in “Shariseland,” apparently?   

“In theory, journalists or not, we’re all supposed to be trying to do a better job listening to people with different opinions than us, so hushing someone should be verboten.”

Bingo!

“Racism isn’t a difference of opinion, though, like whether or not pineapple should be on pizza (answer: yes).”

Just for the record, that’s worse than racism in my opinion!

“Repeating myths that have been disproven time and again isn’t right or fair. Being a blatant hypocrite makes it worse.”

Well, I guess you oughta know, Sharise.

“So here we are.”

Truer words were never spoken.

“On Sunday, Favre made comments on a radio show once again lamenting players who don’t look like him using their right as free citizens to express their opinion and try to shine a light on the continued, often violent injustices faced by non-white, non-heterosexual, non-cisgendered people every day.”

Just to be clear, Favre never said anything about what the players looked like that he was talking about.  He only talked about the actions of certain players, without regard to the color of their skin.

The rest of it you just hung on him to suit your racist point of view.

“He called athletes kneeling during the anthem ‘a shame’ and wondered why ‘standing patriotically’ for a piece of fabric isn’t the great unifier he believes it should be.”

You’re the one crying about people not being able to use their right as free citizens to express their opinion…, but that doesn’t include Brett Favre I guess.

“He intimated once again that he doesn’t want politics in sports, as if politics haven’t been part of sports in this country for at least a century.”

As an avid sports fan most of my life, I really don’t recall politics being infused into sports that much, or at all, until the last few years.

I’m not sure where you’re getting your information from, Sharise.  I’m guessing you’re just making that up to fit your narrative, like most “reporters” do these days.    

“Favre said, ‘When I turn on a game, I want to watch a game. I want to watch players play and teams win, lose, come from behind. I want to watch all the important parts of the game, not what’s going on outside of the game.’”

BINGO!

THANK YOU.  

“We should all patiently wait for Favre to produce video of an NFL player stopping a live game to discuss police brutality, the troubling racial disparities in maternal mortality, or the continued scourge of redlining and its impact on Black families.”

“Not a single one has. They’ve worn T-shirts during warmups and kneeled or raised fists during the pre-kickoff anthem. They’ve shared their perspectives after games or in the locker room on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, when the games were days away.”

“What Favre is saying is that he wants the politics he doesn’t agree with, and the concerns of Black players and their community, to not have to enter his consciousness. Because he, as a white man, does not have to care about their concerns.”

NO…, WHAT HE’S SAYING IS WHEN PEOPLE TUNE INTO A FOOTBALL GAME, OR WHATEVER GAME, THEY’RE TURNING IT ON FOR ENTERTAINMENT, AND AS AN ESCAPE FROM ALL OF THE CRAP IN THEIR LIVES, WHICH INCLUDES POLITICS AND POLITICAL TURMOIL. AND THAT INCLUDES FANS OF ALL RACES I BELIVE.

If we turn on a game and get smacked in the face with political issues of the day, then what’s the point? Where’s the escape. Where’s the entertainment?

There have been quite a few games, I’ve personally tuned into, that wanted me to watch some race related “lesson,” which I immediately turned off. 

Then, yes, we have to see t-shirts with political messages on them, and “victims” names on helmets and uniforms, along with “woke” messages on uniforms and on the fields and courts themselves.

I’m sorry, but many of us just want a break from all of this.  

If these sports don’t want to afford us this one luxury, then we’re out.  We’ll find something else to watch or do.  

Nobody begrudges an athlete’s right to be an activist for any cause, but please, do it on your own time, not your customers’ time.     

“If you want proof that is how Favre feels, look no further than his Oct. 30, 2020 tweet, when he told the world he’d be voting for Donald Trump in the coming election, listing ‘freedom of speech’ as one of the reasons why.”

There’s the reason for Sharise’s attack!

Brett Favre committed the ultimate sin of saying he supports Donald Trump!

“What’s more political — and hypocritical — than that?” She continues.  

“What’s more privileged than telling others to shut up to appease you?”

Like Maxine Waters did to Jim Jordan in that congressional hearing? 

Like that?

Like you said, “What’s more political — and hypocritical — than that?”

“Even the NFL, which isn’t exactly a beacon of equity and anti-racist behavior, has come out in support of the notion that Black lives matter and gave players the green light to protest during the anthem through commissioner Roger Goodell’s statement last summer and actions during the 2020 season.”

Yes…, by all means, let’s not fail to contribute to Black Lives Matter (BLM)! We wouldn’t want the founding Marxists of BLM to have to sacrifice any of their multi-million dollar homes, would we?

“Maybe he [Favre] would have understood a small fraction of what it means to be Black, why nearly every political decision made here for 400 years, before this was even America, has been made with our degradation and marginalization in mind. Maybe he would understand why players kneel.”

Your level of confusion is quite impressive, Shalise!

It’s not about understanding…, it’s about his and all of ours’ right to not give a sh*t…, at least for the few hours it takes to watch a game.

Please, don’t take out your racial, political, sexual or gender or whatever frustrations out on Brett Favre.

He’s allowed to feel however he wants to feel, and so is everyone else.

Taxing the “Rich” 101.

Here is my first public service installment from MrEricksonRules’ University, highlighting my course, “Taxing the Rich 101.”

“Taxing the Rich 101” rule number one: While “taxing the rich” may sound good, the truth is that big corporations and “the rich” never really get hurt by increased taxes.

“Taxing the Rich 101” rule number two: The truth is that big corporations and “the rich” just shuffle their money and assets around, and get around tax increases by using other “legal” means to protect their wealth, while passing on the pain of the tax increases down to the 99% of us who are just trying to make a living.

“Taxing the Rich 101” rule number three: “Taxing the rich” really means taxing everyone but “the rich.”

Case in point: Big corporations and “the rich” didn’t even get hurt by the pandemic.  In fact, they had record earnings and increased their wealth dramatically during the pandemic and the oppressive lockdowns, while the unemployment rate skyrocketed, and most small business suffered immensely and many thousands of them went out of business.  

Did everyone get that?

I hope so, because that’s the extent of the course.

The final exam is a pretty easy one.

You may say, “But MrErickson, we already realize this.” 

Undoubtedly, this isn’t telling some of my readers anything new, but this is written for those of us out there who still believe that “taxing the rich” may sound good.   

Now that we all understand what “taxing the rich” really means, let’s take a look at “President” Biden’s and the democrats’ proposed tax hike.

Biden reportedly planning first major tax hike since 1993 in next economic package

Spending bill could include hikes in the tax rate paid by corporations, wealthy Americans

According to Megan Henney of FOXBusiness, “President Biden is reportedly planning to include the first major tax hike in close to 30 years in the next economic spending bill set to follow his $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package.”

“The next spending initiative — which is expected to be even bigger, costing as much as $4 trillion — won’t rely on just government debt as a funding source and could include an increase in both the corporate tax rate and the individual rate for high-income earners, according to Bloomberg News, citing a person familiar with the matter.”

“The planned changes include: raising the corporate tax rate to 28% from 21%, raising the income tax rate on individuals earning more than $400,000, expanding the estate tax, creating a higher capital-gains tax rate for individuals earning at least $1 million annually and paring back tax preferences for so-called pass-through businesses.”

“Pass-through businesses” include sole proprietorships, partnerships, limited liability companies, and S-corporations.”

Pass-through businesses represent around 95% of the businesses in our country, meaning small businesses…, as if they haven’t been hammered during the pandemic enough. 

“The White House did not immediately respond to a FOX Business request for comment.”

No surprise there.

“The proposed tax increases will mostly mirror Biden’s proposals during the 2020 presidential campaign, when he vowed to reverse former President Donald Trump’s 2017 tax cuts on ‘day one’ of his presidency. That includes raising the rate paid by corporations and wealthy Americans and making the tax code more progressive.”

Remember, “more progressive” really means more oppressive.

“Any tax increases included in the legislation would likely take effect beginning in 2022, Bloomberg reported, with some lawmakers wary of raising rates until the economy more fully recovers from the coronavirus pandemic.”

“An analysis of Biden’s tax plan conducted by the Tax Policy Center estimated it would raise $2.1 trillion in new revenue over a decade.”

So, that means this tax increase would pay for the “COVID Relief Bill” by 2032.

Nice.

“It’s unclear what other measures would be included in the proposal, but on the campaign trail, Biden emphasized the need for new infrastructure investments and measures to combat climate change, as well as ways to revitalize the manufacturing industry and revamp housing, education and health care.”

“Raising taxes will serve as a key test for the nascent [new] administration as it navigates a 50-50 Senate in which moderate Democratic lawmakers like Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Krysten Sinema of Arizona play an outsized role.”

If they’re really moderate democrat lawmakers, why do the vote with the rest of the democrats EVERY time?

The truth is, Joe Manchin and Krysten Sinema just talk like moderate democrat lawmakers, but they really aren’t.

“The infrastructure proposal is sure to ignite a firestorm of criticism from Republicans, and possibly some moderate Democrats, who are worried about the exorbitant level of government spending.”

Ha!

Democrats who are “worried about the exorbitant level of government spending?!!!”

I’m sorry to tell you, Ms. Henney, but those democrats don’t exist.  

Please be on the lookout for my next course, made available to everyone free of charge, from MrEricksonRules’ University.

It’s a liberal “jungle” out there!

Please be aware that every day, while you go about your life, there is an army of people out there working to divide, change, and undermine our way of life and our country.   

It’s true.

There are hundreds of these organization in The United States, including:

The Southern Poverty Law Center

The Brennan Center for Justice

Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB)

Ballot Initiative Strategy Center (BISC)

State Innovation Exchange (SIX)

ProgressNow

MoveOn

The Pew Research Center

National Immigration Law Center

American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)

Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN)

Black Lives Matter

Wellstone

Resurgent Left

Social Media (Google, Facebook, Twitter)  

The mainstream media (NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, The Washington Post, National Public Radio)   

Just to name a few…, although that’s enough!  

All of these groups will say they are “non-partisan,” mainly for tax purposes, but they are anything but, and they’re all very far left of being “non-partisan.” 

I think, to them, “non-partisan” means “without a conscience.”

All of these groups are organizing, training (indoctrinating), fundraising, manipulating, scheming, and taking actions to destroy our democracy twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

None of these organizations give any quarter, nor do they take any prisoners.  They are all ruthless and unapologetic regarding their neo-fascist practices.

The radical left has done a good job indoctrinating all of their “good little Nazis,” who are convinced they are the ones fighting “the Nazis.”

They are really quite sad and pathetic, but, in reality they’re very dangerous.

First, Americans need to realize and concede that these anti-America groups and factions exist.

Secondly, we have to drag them out into the sunlight and expose them for what they are.

And thirdly, we have to fight them, resist them, and counter their actions via any means possible…, be that politically, lawfully, socially, or economically.

These people cannot just be allowed to operate, under our noses and without any rebuttal any longer.

These anti-America “Americans” must be confronted, engaged, and defeated.

Our lives and our children’s lives literally depend on it.

“Cheaters, cheaters, pumpkin eaters!”

I remember this rhyme from when I was a kid.

Yes, it is childish, but, whatever, I’m rolling with it!  

During Joe Biden’s October 24th appearance on the progressive podcast “Pod Save America,” Biden said, “We’re in a situation where we have put together, and you guys did it for our administration, President Obama’s administration before this, we have put together I think the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics.”

In this instance, I believe you Sleepy Joe!

It’s amazing the information you can get out of Joe Biden if you just let him talk without the aid of a teleprompter. 

So, now that we have that established…, according to the Brennan Center for Justice, “It is important to protect the integrity of our elections. But we must be careful not to undermine free and fair access to the ballot in the name of preventing phantom voter fraud.”

“Politicians at all levels of government have repeatedly, and falsely, claimed the 2016 and 2018 elections were marred by millions of people voting illegally. However, extensive research reveals that fraud is very rare, voter impersonation is virtually nonexistent, and many instances of alleged fraud are, in fact, mistakes by voters or administrators. The same is true for mail ballots, which are secure and essential to holding a safe election amid the coronavirus pandemic.”

“The Brennan Center’s seminal report, ‘The Truth About Voter Fraud,’ conclusively demonstrated that most allegations of fraud turn out to be baseless and that most of the few remaining allegations reveal irregularities and other forms of election misconduct.”

Of course they are.  

Have you read the MrEricksonRule’s Center for Justice report that brings to light massive democrat election fraud?

It carries about as much weight as this piece of Brennan Center propaganda.

Supposedly, The Brennan Center for Justice at the New York University Law School is a bipartisan law and public policy institute seen as liberal or progressive in its policy positions and views. The organization is named after Supreme Court Justice William J. Brennan.

The Brennan Center’s own website says, “The Brennan Center is equal parts think tank, public interest law firm and advocacy organization. The Brennan Center serves as a generator of legal theory and as an expert on democracy reform, equipping and empowering journalists, attorneys, civic engagement organizations, and other national partners to achieve immediate wins and make long-term strides toward an inclusive and just democracy.”

Their form of “an inclusive and just democracy” does not include people who don’t think like they do, and “just democracy” is whatever they say it is…, and you better not question them.  

What a couple of good little Nazis!

If you visit the Brennan Center’s website, it will become apparent quite quickly that they oppose President Trump and are proactive in their attacks on him and his administration.   

It would not surprise me at all if these people were a driving force behind many of the issues we find ourselves having with this election.

It’s amazing how many of these “centers” exist in our country, whose soul intention is destroying our country as we know it.     

I’ve heard many “talking heads” representing the democrats, and many hosts and contributors to many shows on the fake news and liberal propaganda media say:

“There may be some instances of voter fraud, but not enough to matter.”

“There may be some cases voter fraud, but not enough to make a difference in the outcome.”

“The rate of voter fraud is within acceptable ranges.”

There is a huge difference between “voter fraud” on a case by case instance, and large scale “ballot fraud” or large scale “ballot data dumps,” “intentional voting machine software manipulation,” and overall “election fraud.”

 The 2020 election cannot be compared to prior elections. 

In the 2020 election, democrats were prepared to pull out all the stops if needed, and do whatever it took to defeat President Trump.

That is precisely why counts were halted in battleground states on election night, after it was determined President Trump was on track to win these states.

This gave the democrats time to produce enough votes, electronically, or physically, to overtake President Trump’s vote totals, when the counting recommenced.  

It was quite obvious to me, and I will go to my grave believing this was the case.

Whether or not The President’s legal team is able to actually gain access to the system and the physical ballots, in order to be able to document this cheating and bring it to light is another story.

If they really believe the election was fair and square, and they are interested in making sure our elections are fair and square, Joe Biden, his campaign, and the democrats should welcome validation of this election’s integrity, not ignore it, fight it, or run from it.

Nobody wants their vote to be disqualified by an opposing illegitimate vote.

Put your hand up if you’re willing to sacrifice your vote to a cheater.

Hmmm…, I’m not seeing any hands out there.

And it doesn’t make any difference if the cheating is on a small scale or a large scale.

Cheating is cheating.

It’s the year 2020 ladies and gentlemen.  We are more than capable of instituting an election system which would safeguard us from virtually all of the fraud issues, if that’s what our politicians (and I’m referring mainly to the democrats) wanted.

Biden and the democrats are not going to be able effectively govern the country if tens of millions of Americans believe Biden is an illegitimate president who got into office by way of a rigged and stolen election.     

Hopefully, we won’t be forced to deal with that situation.

The list of traitors is long and distinguished!

Yes, “distinguished” in that they are all infamous.

Benedict Arnold.

James Comey.

John Brennan.

James Clapper.

Robert Mueller.

Peter Strzok.

Lisa Page.

Barack Obama.

Joe Biden.

Hillary Clinton.

Sally Yates.

Andrew McCabe.

Loretta Lynch.

“Which of these things is not like the others?”

“Which of these things just doesn’t belong?”

“Can you tell which thing is not like the others, by the time I finish my song?”

I’m sorry, because this is actually a trick question.

The correct answer is “no one on the list doesn’t belong!”

They all belong, because they’re all treasonous vermin!

And they all had many accessories along the way as well.

Not mention the lying, complicit, fake news, liberal propaganda, mainstream media.   

Actually, a case could be made that Benedict Arnold “doesn’t belong,” because he was the only one who wasn’t involved in spying on the Trump campaign, spying on President Trump while in office, and attempting to undermine and overthrow a duly elected president.

They have disgraced their names, their families, and their country forever.

Shame on them all.

If there is any justice, they should all be brought to justice.

Thank you, Captain Obvious!

Yes…, Captain Obvious, aka FBI Director Christopher Wray, stated, while appearing at a House Homeland Security Committee hearing, that “Antifa is a real thing.”

Reeeeeally?!

You don’t say?!

Thank you, thank you, for this brilliant insight Captain Obvious!

Can you possibly share anything else the FBI has learned?

That the earth is round?

That Chicago is a dangerous place?

That you ought to be fired, just like your fellow deep state partners in crime, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, and Peter Strzok?

That everyone in the prior Obama administration, including former President Obama himself, are guilty of treason?

Please, tell us something we don’t know, Captain Obvious!

Please tell us something we don’t know!

Acording to By Ronn Blitzer of Fox News, “Wray’s words were in response to Rep. Debbie Lesko, R-Ariz., who claimed prominent Democrats have called Antifa a ‘fantasy.’”

Ha! “A fantasy?!”

More like a nightmare, I’d say.

“In July, Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., had dismissed the idea of Antifa violence in Portland as ‘a myth that’s being spread only in Washington, D.C.’”

These democrats are all such pathetic liars.

And they love to try and talk you out of believing what your eyes are actually seeing.

The latest China virus propaganda, courtesy of Esquire Magazine.

According to Jack Holmes of Esquire magazine, “The Hot New Conservative Talking Point on COVID-19 Is Extremely Wrong.”

Is it?

Is it really, Jack?

Is it really “extremely wrong?”

“The weekend’s big talking point for people more concerned with propping up the president’s campaign than grappling with reality was that a new CDC report found 94 percent of people who have been recorded as dying from COVID-19 have also had other causes of death listed.”

I’m not sure exactly how this can be viewed as, “propping up the president’s campaign,” unless exposing the truth about the China virus accomplishes this.

And you, Mr. Holmes, and your liberal friends, seem to be the ones “grappling with reality.”

Well, I guess you’re not really “grappling…,” it’s more like intentionally twisting reality.

“The thinking from some exceptionally large brains in the conservative media was that this meant only six percent of the recorded COVID deaths are actually deaths due to COVID, so that a big chunk of the 183,000 recorded deaths in the U.S. somehow shouldn’t count.”

Well, I gotta tell you, Jack…, 100% minus 94% does leave us with 6%, now doesn’t it?

And, these “large brained” people you speak of are not implying that the China virus had nothing to do with the deaths of the 94%…, they’re just correctly pointing out that only 6%, or 10,980 people died solely from the virus, with no underlying conditions, which would be about .0033% of the US population.

Even the entire 183,000 number is only .0555% of the US population.

Remember that .5 would represent one half of 1 percent.

Again, who do you feel is “grappling with reality,” Mr. Holmes?

Comparatively, in 2020, an estimated 606,520 people will die of cancer in the United States.

That’s 3 times the COVID related number, and 55 times the COVID only number.

And, the number of people who die from heart disease are pretty similar to the cancer numbers.

Holmes continues by saying, “This hasn’t yet spread as widely yet as some other right-wing tropes [please note that ‘trope’ is new liberal buzzword, meaning a ‘figurative idea’], but these days, you have to take it all seriously—and nip it in the bud early.”

Yes, we know Jack…, you gotta nip those nasty facts in the bud early, and put the proper liberal spin on them as soon as possible!

“It’s understandable that the president’s partisans would prefer not to confront his actual record on the pandemic.”

Now wait one darn minute there, Jack.

Who says, “The president’s partisans would prefer not to confront his actual record on the pandemic?”

I mean bsides you, of course?

Most people, who support The President, which would include me, feel he has done a good job dealing with the pandemic. It is the democrat governors and democrat mayors who have mishandled the handling of the China virus in my opinion, while Biden condemned President Trump’s early flight restrictions from China, and Pelosi and DeBlasio encouraged their constituents to ignore the virus and go out and have a good time.  You know, your friends, Jack.

Mr. Holmes then goes on to say, “Much like he’d [The President would] rather dwell on—and encourage—the unrest in the nation’s streets.”

I’m not sure where this bit of liberal propaganda BS came from, but it does give us clearer view as to where you’re coming from, Jack, if indeed we needed a clearer view.
