“I’m a big football fan, but I have to tell you if I had a son, I’d have to think long and hard before I let him play football,” President Obama said in an interview with the New Republic.
“In some cases, that may make it a little bit less exciting, but it will be a whole lot better for the players, and those of us who are fans maybe won’t have to examine our consciences quite as much.”
“I tend to be more worried about college players than NFL players in the sense that the NFL players have a union, they’re grown men, they can make some of these decisions on their own, and most of them are well-compensated for the violence they do to their bodies,” he said. “You read some of these stories about college players who undergo some of these same problems with concussions and so forth and then have nothing to fall back on. That’s something that I’d like to see the NCAA think about.”
One, how is this any business of the President of the United States? Two, incautious commentary is never what it seems out of a Leftist. These utterances signal something altogether different than what it seems on the surface. And third? Demonstrable to 200 decimal points is the truth that the Left not only doesn’t give a fig about people, they’re actually the political equivalent of the Party of Death. As Ramesh Ponnuru says in his book by the same title, the Left not only represents death and injury it embraces these.
The record? Beginning with Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society and the degradation of large segments of our society, we then move to the Left’s never ending assault on morality and traits of character, lessons hard won through the millennia. Then comes abortion, the ultimate executioner. Examine the lust for Evolution over a Creator and all manner of evil follows. John Derbyshire termed abortion “a frigid and pitiless dogma.” We can examine the immense damage an icon of the Left has accomplished, namely Masters and Johnson’s thoroughly discredited study of human sexuality — still embraced like a fevered lover by the Left. Generations of women have experienced personal ruin and a forever adolescent state of mind because of this “study.” It led directly to Helen Gurley Brown transformer of Cosmopolitan into the seminal magazine for chic do-what-thou-will feminism.
