The Super Bowl… vs. America’s Self-Respect

See the source image

Let’s see… They insult us all year long by kneeling instead of standing for the National Anthem, they call us a crummy no-good racist country… And we’re gonna watch their Big Fat Game? Really?

Do we really have so little self-respect as that? How badly, how desperately, do we need to see another stupid football game? Is there anything they can say to us, any way they can show us yet more clearly what they think of us, that might drive away their audience?

We really do ask for it, don’t we?

Projected viewership of Super Bowel (intentional typo) 52 is down 16% from last year.

That’s not enough to drive home the lesson. Nowhere near enough.

Can it be that we just don’t care enough to pass up a football game? There’s nothing else that we can do tomorrow?

Shame on us.
