“I never saw a football player make a tackle with a smile on his face.” Coach Woody Hayes
I spent the first half of my life engrossed in sports. I loved playing baseball but I especially loved coaching football. There is no sport that teaches the lessons of life better than the lessons learned on the gridiron.
When you get knocked down you have to get up. When you get up you have to go back to the huddle and regroup. When you get up you realize that you can’t do it alone and the only way to move forward successfully is as a team.
Is it any wonder The Left is doing everything that they can to destroy football? For as long as America has been around our leaders have been developed on the football field. First, The Left tried to permit girls to play. Then they began to soften the rules on how hard you could tackle. Soon you will see football emasculated like the Boy Scouts.
Isn’t it amazing to see that it is always the feminists who want to invade the world of men but rarely do you see men fighting to invade the domicile of women? I was taken to task by a mother one time because I criticized her son for “throwing like a girl.” She told me it was demeaning to women. Somebody help me here. How many women are there pitching in Major League Baseball? I wonder if it has anything to do with the way that women throw.
So, I was a bit hesitant when I originally considered titling this commentary “It is Time for Men to Stop Fighting Like Girls.” After some ruminating I came to the conclusion that maybe it would be better if men DID learn to fight like girls…so I changed the title. Heck, girls are the only ones who are permitted to fight in today’s culture. Mean are taught that weakness is strength.
The truth is, men are afraid of women. I suppose it has something to do with “offending” or “tolerance” or some other nebulous term, but whatever the reason the courage has been sucked right out of the average American male. “Stand up and fight like a man” is tantamount to the N-word today. How dare I be so neanderthalish as to assume that a man can do ANYTHING better than a woman.
But men used to be able to fight. And not only did they fight well but we honored the greatest fighters. Rocky Marciano, Joe Louis, Sonny Liston, Joe Frazier, and Muhammed Ali were the epitome of manhood. Can you even name the World Heavyweight Champion today?
Do you remember Dick Butkus, The Fearsome Foursome, Jimmy Brown, and Vince Lombardi? Real men, known for their TOUGHNESS, were the role models that the young boys aspired to emulate. The Left is doing all they can to destroy manhood. Football, Boy Scouts, and Christianity are all bowing their knees to softness. Not kindness. You can be harsh and masculine and still be kind. Men are trained to be soft. Punching bag soft.
Fighting like a man is no longer permitted. Only the girls are permitted to fight. It is time for the men to start fighting like girls.
I grew up in the 60s. I remember when only the “trampy girls” “did it”. Parents trained their daughters with virtue…or at least attempted to. No one excused the immorality of the male, and I certainly don’t want to return to those days of double-standard morality, but this is no longer the 60s. Women can’t have it both ways. They can’t be both a victim and empowered. If you can’t take it then you have no business dishing it out.
What if Judge Kavanaugh came out and said, “Yeah I did it. But she did it with four other guys that same night. She was a first class slut. She passed it out like candy.”
Can you imagine the outrage from The Left?! They would wax on and on about how he was “disparaging” her character without any proof. But yet, she can disparage his character and he is supposed to bend over and take it. Men aren’t permitted to fight anymore.
I am so sick of the double standard. I am so sick of elected officials cow-towing to empty accusations. Clarence Thomas, Judge Roy Moore, and now Brett Kavanaugh. If you think this is the last time this play is going to be run then you are not paying attention to what is going on in the world. Hey fellas, did you ever have a lady “tease” you sexually? Wasn’t that sexual abuse?
Donald Trump is the only man fighting and all of the sissy men around him are encouraging him to stop. He isn’t “Presidential.” He is “harsh”, “crude”, and “misogynistic”. While everyone is complaining about the way he punches he is rapidly emerging as the new Heavyweight Champion of the World! The Jezebels hate him, as well as the King Ahab’s that the Jezzies hang around with. But he is dropping his opponents one after another.
As Rocky Balboa said “That’s how winning is done!”
Like it or not we have entered into a new age in American decorum. This ain’t your Grandma’s America and even though many of us would like to return to the Fabulous Fifties that train has left the station. The battle for the culture is raging and the American male must adjust. I wish it wasn’t true…but feminism is crushing the spirit of the once brave American male.
Here is the take home. Women are driven by emotion. You can get mad at me if you want but the fact that I wrote it does not make it less true. Today emotion is at the heart of every issue we are dealing with. Science no longer matters. Facts are irrelevant. All women are not virtuous and not all men are controlled by their genitalia. Women want to be treated like men…except when it comes to sex.
I am sorry that it has come to this but the ladies can’t have it both ways. My mother taught me as a young man that sticks and stones can hurt my bones but that words can never harm me. My mother was wrong. Some of the most severe injuries that I have ever received were a result of words.
Women fight with words. They cause deep wounds. Some men never recover. Look around.
There is a war raging in America and it is a war on manhood. It is time for the men of America to fight back. It is time to start fighting like the girls.
