    Jack Del Rio Goes On Controversial Twitter Rant


  2. #2
    What is controversial about supporting the president? If he made the same comments and supported Sleepy Joe, would the headline read controversial. Nope. Since the writer doesn't agree with trump, its means controversial. I get it.

    JDR posted "I’m 100% for America, if you’re not you can kiss my A$$". I guess supporting our country has now become controversial.

    His opinion, he's entitled to it. Is the media just now learning people have different opinions? He was a good coach, I have no problem with him.

    Here's what worries me most about America

    What Del Rio tweeted has become "unacceptable" in America. The MSM will try to tell him that his views are "racist" and "wrong headed" and those in the league will try to tell him that he no longer belongs in the league.

    He has the right to voice his opinions. America is not a nation with a singular view determined by elites in politics and the news media. America is not a nation whose acceptable views and speech are determined by bullies.

    I remember decades ago when a few communities decided to burn controversial books. "They" decided that these books were not appropriate for "us" to read, that they reflected views we should not entertain. "They" are now defacing and tearing down statues that "trigger" anger. "They" are deciding which statues should remain and which ones should be torn down. "They" are an angry mob of mostly ignorant Americans who don't even know the history behind most of the statues they are destroying. As an example, one group tore down the statue of an abolitionist who funded education for African Americans in the mid 1800s, before the Civil War, and who also fought for voting rights.

    I see this as the same type of behavior of "they" determining how all Americans should think and believe. Hitler tore down symbols he didn't like. North Korea did the same thing. Nearly every communist or fascist country has done the same thing throughout history.

    We have rights as Americans. We have the right to voice our opinions. In many states across this country, elected politicians have decided which Americans still have their First Amendment rights. Protesting is allowed because it's based on anger, while assembling with family and friends at a business is not, because it's dangerous. Multiple funerals for a bad man wrongly killed by police is all right, but average Americans assembling with friends and family to say goodbye to a loved one it not -- it's dangerous. Attending church is not allowed, but hundreds attending a protest is OK.

    Many of these decisions point to the hypocrisy of these politicians and how they are attempting to decide which ones of us have Constitutional rights, and which ones do not. Numerous courts all across the country have determined that "reasonable" restrictions to protect "public health" are allowed -- but only as long as they are uniformly enforced, not favoring one group over another. In other words, if you believe 100 people assembling outside for a church service is dangerous, then you should also enforce that 1000 people assembling outside to protest is also dangerous.

    Our Constitution doesn't pick and choose who has these rights and who do not. Our Constitution allows for any and all of us to "peaceably assemble," but it does not place any restrictions or determinations on which assembly is MORE protected than another. A political rally is just as allowed as a protest, just as family and friends assembling to eat dinner at a restaurant is just as protected as any other assembly.

    Just a few thoughts. Many of these governors have trampled all over our Constitution in the name of "political correctness."

    As Americans, we should all be very alarmed.

    You are allowed to say what ever you want, as long as it conforms to certain views. Being pro-American is not allowed.
