Cyril Cusack Was Right

This is a clip from one of my favorite movies, The Spy Who Came in From the Cold. In it "Control" is briefing a burned out, alcoholic field agent about a mission behind the Iron Curtain. Control makes the point that one cannot be less ruthless than the opposition if one wants to win. Our policies may be "benevolent" but our methods must be just as brutal. This is a universal truth in politics/war be it present day, ten thousand years ago or ten thousand years from now. The denial of this truth is why we lost in Vietnam, lost in Iraq, will eventually lose in Afghanistan and most likely lose the "War on Terror".  It's also why the Republican Party is such a mess.

A case directly on point is the latest threat by the left (and their new butt-boy the NFL) to take away the Super Bowl if Arizona passes The Religious Freedom Restoration Act which basically says any business can deny service based on religious grounds. Gay groups have taken this to mean their local bakery won't be putting Bruce & Bruce on top of that wedding cake because they're Godless sodomites who worship a hairy sphincter muscle rather than an all powerful Supreme Being. 

Now, how should we feel (feelings are everything, screw logic) about this law? Well my opinion is anyone should have the right to do business with whomever they choose; it's called free association. If I owned a pub (my lifelong dream...and death wish) and I choose not to serve kids or gays or Mexkins or even say.... Democrats, then that's my business. To the extent that I turn away paying customers and piss off my community/clientele the marketplace will punish me accordingly (now in my business I don't care if you're having a love affair with your Dyson upright I'm taking your money). But let's get real, discrimination is part of the human condition, we discriminate all the time in all kinds of ways. Let me walk my Redneck ass into the Russian Tea Room wearing an NRA t-shirt and Levis and see how far I get. 

Anyway, back to the point. The left is putting pressure on the NFL through a variety of ways and the league is now ready to do their bidding. 
“Our policies emphasize tolerance and inclusiveness and prohibit discrimination based on age, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation or any other improper standard,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told USA Today. “We are following the issue in Arizona and will continue to do so should the bill be signed into law, but will decline further comment at this time.”
Clearly the National Football League is frightened, so how can we, as conservatives, show the No Fun League the error of their ways?

I'm glad you asked. Pressure works both ways and if we want to win we cannot afford to be less ruthless than our enemies (see above). So, if Jan Brewer vetoes this bill we immediately call for a boycott of the Super Bowl. Every Republican, every conservative, every freedom loving American will not participate in any event, public or private, which has anything to do whatsoever with the Super Bowl. We will not watch, we will not go to a party, a bar or even talk about the game. Our refusal will be our weapon. If we did this just once, JUST ONE TIME, the revenue lost by the National Football League, by the Networks (yes all of them), the local stations, the advertisers, vendors, host city etc. would be enormous (and catastrophic for some entities). It would reverberate through the political consciousness of America and THE WORLD and scare the living shit out of the powers that be. Billions upon billions would be lost in one fell swoop and we could literally break the back of the left in 12 hours. 

Politics is politics but you mess with somebody's money and you'll get their attention real quick! If they are stupid enough to do this then let's not pussyfoot around. I say go for the throat, MAKE THEM PAY!

Help me help you.

(1)Use a better font, and all the same size, all the time.

(2) I would save the Union. I would save it the shortest way under the Constitution. The sooner the national authority can be restored; the nearer the Union will be "the Union as it was." If there be those who would not save the Union, unless they could at the same time save slavery, I do not agree with them. If there be those who would not save the Union unless they could at the same time destroy slavery, I do not agree with them. My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that. What I do about slavery, and the colored race, I do because I believe it helps to save the Union; and what I forbear, I forbear because I do not believe it would help to save the Union. I shall do less whenever I shall believe what I am doing hurts the cause, and I shall do more whenever I shall believe doing more will help the cause. I shall try to correct errors when shown to be errors; and I shall adopt new views so fast as they shall appear to be true views.
I have here stated my purpose according to my view of official duty; and I intend no modification of my oft-expressed personal wish that all men everywhere could be free.[21]
(3) Gov Brewer on in 45 minutes.

Every time I cut and paste the font size messes up, sorry.
But what I was suggesting Fred was to use the tactics of the left for our purposes. First I think it just might work, second if they complained then we expose them for the hypocrites they are.
I am tired of being our side being intimidated, it's time to do some intimidating.
What are the chances? None at all.

The NFL has been gay since the first "fantasy" leagues were created.

It would work but it would require leadership using the loud speakers their position grants them and that will not happen.

Hopefully after the mid term we will make a big enough shift to get a real leader for the house and senate. The current crop doesn't offer anything one is a tanned crying sweet boy and the other is a dufis that just shuffles around in circles aimlessly and uselessly.
