"How dare he show the rest of us up for the pampered pussies we are," said Pittsburgh Kneelers Head Pussy Tomlin in a quote I made up that is nonetheless 100% accurate.
The head coach of the NFL's Pittsburgh Steelers blasted one of his players, a former Army Ranger, for his decision to break from the team and respectfully stand for the national anthem on Sunday.Tomlin is a chickenshit sonafabitch, and should be fired by the Kneelers management, after being ejected by the League for violating League game operations standing written policy.
After a non-unanimous "team" decision, Coach Mike Tomlin had insisted the entire team—reflecting the actions of some other NFL teams—stay in the locker room prior to their game against the Chicago Bears, and not be present for the national anthem, Fox News reports. One Steelers player decided to break with Tomlin's decision, and came out to stand for the national anthem with his hand over his heart.
Offensive tackle Alejandro Villanueva stood alone on the Steelers sideline to pay tribute to his country.
Villanueva is a retired Army Ranger who was awarded the Bronze Star and served three tours of duty in Afghanistan.
After losing to the Chicago Bears, Tomlin spoke out against Villanueva's decision.
"Like I said, I was looking for 100 percent participation, we were gonna be respectful of our football team," Tomlin said.
Tomlin also said that the decision to stay in the locker room came from his players.
"Many of them felt like something needed to be done," Tomlin said. "I asked those guys to discuss it and whatever they discussed that we have 100 percent participation or we do nothing."
But such witless, spineless douchebags as Tomlin and his ilk can be counted on to buckle the straps tighter, and double down on stupid even as their barrel is headed over the falls.
While Villanueva's jersey sales have skyrocketed overnight, fans of the Steelers before they became the pussified Kneelers have a different take:
Well played, NFL assholes. You've generated more hate in a week by following the lead of Colon Paperdick than you ever inspired admiration from fans in any twenty years.
Good luck washing cars and bussing tables, you league of losers.
Saul Alinsky called you gutless shitbags, and left a message:
It's going to be a long, cold, lonely season, for the Kneelers and the NFL.Ridicule is man's most potent weaponA good tactic is one your people enjoy.
And Villanueva's Bronze Star with "V" award story?
In August, 2011, Alejandro Villanueva, a 2nd lieutenant in the United States Army, found his platoon under fire. He was trying to protect Afghan civilians from a firefight with the Taliban when the Taliban turned their attention on Villanueva's troops. Three of his soldiers were wounded; two survived, but Pfc. Jesse Dietrich did not, dying as Villanueva carried him into a waiting helicopter."As the platoon leader, I feel responsible for everything my platoon does or fails to do," Villanueva told ESPN's Ashley Fox in 2011 (he does not discuss his time in the military that often or in too much detail). "I failed to keep Jesse Dietrich safe, and you know, it was just tough. ... I keep thinking of other ways I would have done it, but it was a very tough mission and the enemy beat us that day. It was just a really bad night."...for exceptionally valorous conduct in the face of the enemy while serving as a rifle platoon leader with 2nd Battalion, 87th Infantry Regiment of the 10th Mountain Division in Kandahar Afghanistan in August, 2011...
A free-agent walk-in when signed by the Eagles while still serving in the Army, Villanueava is 6'9" and 320 pounds.
Ain't nobody who's telling a Ranger-tabbed guy that size to sit down.
And certainly not such a gutless douchebag as Tomlin.
But at least now we know who the only guy in the Kneelers locker room is who wears pants, and pees standing up.
And now, NASCAR owners have weighed in:
"Anyone who disrespects the flag or law enforcement will be FIRED!"
