The Progressive Flat Earth Society Now Believes the NFL Ratings are Down Because of Over Saturation

The far left with Hollywood’s help has defined every single deviancy as normal and have done everything they can to define everything normal as deviant. The two parent, heterosexual, nuclear household is part of white supremacy and the patriarchy. Regular churchgoers are bigots. People who live in rural areas are polluters. On and on it goes. Boys can become girls, girls can become boys, men can use our daughter’s bathrooms, and there is no part of gay subculture that has anything to do with older men attracted to boys and it’s okay anyway because surely 14 is the age of consent. And hey, did you hear the one about Cosmo and incest is okay. And you know, everybody knows that gay kids give off some sort of un-understood signal that attracts child predators, it is not that the predatory behavior might influence someone’s sexuality. Seriously, that’s one of the arguments that came up repeatedly during the Catholic Church scandal, the Boy Scout situation, etc.

Every single deviant behavior on the planet must be normalized because “science says” and when science does not say, which is never does, they trot out a bunch of people with doctorate degrees to claim scientific credibility for pseudoscience bulls**t. Modern progressivism is the love child of the anti-vaccine activist and the flat earther.

Into this environment comes the modern Hollywood and New York TV executive. They applaud the NFL players for taking a knee to the American flag, they deny it is about the flag after Kaepernick said it was, and then they tell us that if you don’t support taking a knee to the flag you are a bigot. The NFL’s senior management, a bunch of progressive warriors themselves, agree. And the ratings tell a completely different story. The people are pissed that politics has yet invaded something else. Where you eat is political. What you eat is political. Where you live is political. What you watch on TV is political. And now football is political.

So the same people who think you can pick whether you are a boy or girl and a sexual relationship between a 14 year old boy and a grown man needs to be downplayed and Harvey Weinstein needs to be propped up — they’re at it again. This time it’s that
the NFL has just saturated the TV market. You see, ratings are now down because of the protests. No, the protests should keep going. The NFL just needs to scale back the number of games it plays. Everyone is tuning out of all the games because there are too many games.

Yes, there is a kernel of truth here. Yes, the NFL probably is running too many days a week. But the steep drop in ratings cannot be attributed to a mass tune out because there are too many games. This is willful denial of the problem just as so much of progressivism tries to explain away contradictions, deviancies, and the like. The religious zeal of the left to conform the world to their ideas takes precedence and the laws of physics themselves would be rewritten if need be.

And now we’ve reached a point where TV ratings must be explained away, which for the Hollywood set of the progressive left is a pretty big indication that they really have crossed the rubicon of leftwing indoctrination. They’re willing to let the ideology shape the revenue now. And that’s a pretty big deal.
