“Coach” Dave Daubenmire, being the purveyor of ignorant and toxic masculinity that he is, is very upset about the protests at NFL football games. He says those protests are part of a grand plot to destroy American football because macho, macho, blah blah blah.
On his “Pass The Salt Live” webcast this morning, Daubenmire insisted that there is nothing to stop NFL owners from requiring all players to stand during the national anthem, but the fact that owners are not doing so is a sign that “there is something extremely nefarious going on here.”
“It is a deliberate undermining of another American institution,” Daubenmire said. “I’ve been convinced from the time I was a young guy that American boys play football. American boys play football, they don’t play soccer. They play soccer in Europe, they play soccer in Russia, they play soccer in Japan; in America, we play football.”
“You look at what’s going on all across society [and] they’re doing everything they can to destroy football,” he added…“We’ve got to see exactly what’s going on,” he warned. “America’s sport is being destroyed right in front of us.”
Yes, I’m sure that’s it. The football players who are protesting are deliberately trying to destroy the sport they’ve devoted their lives to and that make them very wealthy. Because that makes total sense, doesn’t it? It’s an old XK Red 27 technique. I bet the Illuminati got to them, and the lizard people too.
Or, here’s a thought…maybe they actually are protesting because there’s something to protest. Maybe they’re using their platform to affect social change and call attention to serious racial injustice. Crazy, I know. But hey Dave, you know what you could do? You could pray about it. I bet that’ll make a difference.
