How I Intend To Spend Super Bowl III (Hint: Iíll Be In Janiceís Corner)
MOTUS A.D. ^ | 2-3-19 | MOTUS

Posted on 02/03/2019 7:32:01 AM PST by NOBO2012

Well, here it is, Super Bowl Sunday. I know a lot of you don’t care. Even so, you might care about CNN’s ace reporter on all forms of racial/gendered bias (Don the Lemon) grilling of Gladys Knight on why she is being a disloyal black b***h by singing the National Anthem at the start of the game.

Related imageUm, because she’s a singer and that’s what she does?

Little Don came to within a hair’s breadth of coming right out and accusing her of being whatever the proper gender-neutral term for “house slave” is. As always, Ms. Knight was classier by half:

“People are going to have their opinions about whatever, and all I can deal with right now is what my heart says, I just want them to know that we have a country that’s worth standing up for.”

All I can deal with right now is the fact that a major news network believes that an entertainer must justify their decision to sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl to anyone let alone a third-rate Fake News outlet.

And mark my words, there will be people on the other side claiming Lemon is racist because he didn’t demand the same justification from Alan Levine, the lead singer for Maroon 5, the all-white group providing half time entertainment, or at least what passes as half-time entertainment these days.

Not that others haven’t demanded an explanation from Levine: Colin Kaepernick’s attorney Mark Geragos called him out on Good Morning America, saying that Levine’s half-time performance was a “copout” (interesting choice of words):

“When you start talking about, ‘I’m not a politician; I’m just doing the music.’ Most of the musicians who have any kind of consciousness whatsoever understand what’s going on here.”

Yes Mr. Geragos, we do know exactly what’s going on here. That’s why there will be so many people not watching the Super Bowl today.

For his part, Maroon 5’s spokesman did try to explain he wasn’t a politician, just a tunesmith simultaneously holding an olive branch out to the NFL kneelers, dealers and appeasers:

He seemed to promise that his show would acknowledge the protests against the NFL, which include national anthem kneelers and Kaepernick’s apparent ban from the league for being the initial leader of the kneeling movement.

As if anyone needed another reason not to watch Super Bowl LIII. Well, I’m still watching the game. Unfortunately I’ll have to switch off the half-time show to prevent indigestion form all the gameday goodies.

Here’s my entry to the SB LIII Hall of Fame:

Cheesey Chorizo Caramelized Onion Dip Recipe

Ingredients:

2 cups onion, chopped

3 tablespoons butter

1/8 teaspoon thyme

½ chorizo sausage, about 6 ounces

8 ounce package of cream cheese

¼ cup mayonnaise

1/3 cup mozzarella cheese

¼ cup chopped chives or green onions

kosher salt

Instructions:

1.  Remove chorizo from casing and cook in a medium skillet over medium high heat for about 10 minutes, chopping with spoon and stirring occasionally. Set aside. If greasy remove excess grease.

2.  In another skillet, melt butter over medium heat and add onion. Add thyme, season with kosher salt and lower heat to medium-low and cook onion for about 20 minutes until onions become soft and caramelized.

3.  In a medium sized bowl add cream cheese and mayonnaise and mix well until smooth. Add mozzarella cheese, caramelized onions, green onions and mix well. Gently fold in chorizo. Pour into a 2 cup baking dish.

4.  Place on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degree F for 12-15 minutes or until dip is golden and bubbly. Garnish with additional green onion and serve with baguette slices or tortilla chips.

Even if you are boycotting the game you can still enjoy a Super Bowl spread; just because a bunch of lunkheaded millionaires decided to bite the hand that feeds them doesn’t mean you don’t have to. So, what you’re fixing for game day?

Oh, and one last thought from commenter Bennie Sprouse re. the SB entertainment controversy:

Why would ANYONE have to DEFEND their singing OUR National Anthem? … Most of the nitwits who "protest" don't even know WHY - I would say "monkey see - monkey do"… but SOME people relate everything to RACE so I won't say that!

But I will.

Super Bowl III? Jets vs. Colts. Thought that was in 1969.

We’re having stuffed cabbage, also known as golumpki. The rice is already cooking.

The NFL needs to go out of business.

Here’s a tip, put your money on the Jets to win straight up. That’s paying out at 8-1.

Why aren’t these turds getting on the players asses for even playing in the game in the first place, as a sign of solidarity with KaeperDick?

Easily one of the more overrated games in Super Bowl history. The delta between the Colts and the Jets was not as wide as the analysts would have us believe.

I won’t be watching, probably forever. They can get on their knees any time they like.

Gladys Knight is old enough to remember a united country where many people were committed to working together rather than to tear things apart. I’m glad her memory and voice are working and in good shape. May she live long and prosper!

“People are going to have their opinions about whatever, and all I can deal with right now is what my heart says, I just want them to know that we have a country that’s worth standing up for.”

Now that is a classy response.

Or Gladys Knight could have said, “Nobody pulls the race card on me and I don’t take lessons in morality from faggies with issues.”
