Washington Lobbyist Jack Burkman Wants To Ban Gay NFL Players
http://nesn.com/ ^ | 02/24/2014 | Trevor Cullen

Posted on 02/24/2014 6:40:07 PM PST by massmike

Washington lobbyist Jack Burkman said that he is drafting legislation that would ban gay athletes from playing in the NFL if approved.

“We are losing our decency as a nation,” Burkman said in a statement, according to Rebecca Shabad of thehill.com. “Imagine your son being forced to shower with a gay man. That’s a horrifying prospect for every mom in the country. What in the world has this nation come to?”

His legislation was spurred by the coming out of Michael Sam, who, if drafted, will become the first openly gay man in the NFL.

While he claimed to have political backing for the bill, he failed to mention any specific supporters.

I’d bet dollars to doughnut holes that Jack is working for the gay lobby running a false-flag operation.

Well, the NFL is certainly going to have to start penalizing all those butt slaps.

He can, like, totally shower with Ha Ha Clinton-Dix!

No seriously, there is a college player from Alabama named Ha Ha Clinton-Dix!

I can only assume. NESN is our local cable sports network here in Boston....NOT a satire site.

Although admittedly it IS getting harder to tell the news from satire these days....

The thing that gets me is that if you think about it, the gays don’t tolerate people that think their lifestyle is wrong. While at the same time wanting those same people to tolerate their lifestyle.

Or, gays don’t tolerate religious people that are disgusted by the perversion, yet they want those same religious people to tolerate them.

hey

I’m for getting the government OUT of telling rhe sports industry what their self-regulations should or should not say.

It should be up to the NFL period, either way, and it should have the recognized Liberty to decide for itself, either way.

It could even leave it to a vote of each team.

As it is now, there are many other “gay” players in all the major sports. But, in continuation of the self-chosen practice of DADT, they don’t insist on wearing a pink triangle on their shirt lapel. They keep it to themselves and only their closest friends on the team know.

Why? It’s polite, and it works, socially. They get to keep their private life from interfering with their professional relationships on the team.

Gays know what they are doing is wrong and feel bad. They think that if they get public praise, it will become okay.

“Why? It’s polite, and it works, socially. They get to keep their private life from interfering with their professional relationships on the team.”

Too true. The whole, in your face activism, of the gay lobby
is an overkill looking to speed up the inevitable social acceptance of their aberrant behavior.

Really, who cares?

I’m a libertarian, my social acceptance is, “who cares?.

A stripper once offered to do anything for me for $100.
I asked her if she would detail my car. Walked of in a huff.
Go figure.

Many tweets (do search Jack Burkman Gay) bring up the fact he’s with “GOP”; one says, “I hope this puts the final nail in the coffin of the GOP”

And one says—I’ll edit it:

>>Dear Jack Burkman: F-— you, you f-—ing pile of f-—ing
s-—ty f-—. Love, Me.

““If the NFL has no morals and no values, then Congress must find values for it,” Burkman said.”

Yes, Congress has done such a bang-up job establishing the moral tone of this nation. This coming from a guy who was a client of the DC Madam?

Geez a reasonable discussion seem beyond some. False flag operation seems apparent.

But still, I don’t give a rat’s whatever.

As a draftee in WWII , I and other young men were required to be in a bunk house with a known homo. Our platoon sgt. told us to stay away from the guy who liked to sashay to and from the shower naked to the buff.

Per his website:

“Burkman is a powerful conservative voice, but doesn’t work for the GOP establishment and his pursuit of the truth doesn’t stop at the party line.”

Spot on and consistent with the campaign started by homosexual activists in the 50s and 60s which has been bearing fruit for the last forty years.

Anti-republican psyops. He’s a lobbyist, i.e. someone who pushes anything for money.

The Dems have nothing and need something. This appeals to the youth vote and the Dem base.

Do any of these Republicans know anything about being a politician? Honestly, these idiots spout off without thinking and then the democrats brand the party as radical-sounding as these blowhards.

Why is it so hard to talk commonly and sensibly about the dangers of homosexual sodomy; to talk about the fact that 2/3 of all HIV/AIDs cases are due to homosexual sodomy; that many same-sex “marriages” are open marriages preserving the opportunity for extra-marital sodomy; that we should be helping homosexuals overcome their same-sex attraction through research like we do for other disorders.

These kinds of comments are why the Republicans got hammered in last elections, allowing the leftist media to paint them as radicals.

ditto here on both of those things

taxpayer financed infrastructure is stupid for a multi-billion private business/industry

where 20 out of 32 NFL teams are valued at $1 billion or more each, and the TV networks paid $28 billion for the rights to air NFL games last season

they can well afford to finance the stadiums themselves, without taxpayers support

they’ll have to NOT give as big of salaries to some guys and charge the networks more, or take a small hit on their profits, or all three of those, but financiing stadiums themselves will not put them out of business

Here in Chicago we built the stadium, let the owner use it for free for 30 years and then we own it. How is that a good deal for the taxpayer?

It’s just stealing via legislation. Just because it is ‘legal’ doesn’t mean it’s right.

there’s a silent Non-activist majority in the “gay” world that agrees with DADT, by choice, not ‘cause anyone mandated it - because it works;

numerous economic studies have shown that no major sports stadium has produced the total local economoic benefits that everyone was told/promised it would do - none of them

the teams owners and the leagues use political blackmail - “you either help us build the stadium or we’ll move the team, hell we’ll move it to the boondocs” - they operate like gansters in that way

the fact is they will not normally ever move a team to the boondocs, because the networks are not going to pay for showing games with an empty stadium; but they will move the team to whereever they get the biggest bribes - taxpayer money - from

then that city’s officials will become hostage to the political blackmail of either continuing to serve up taxpayer support fot the team, through the years in some fashion, or see them leave THEIR city for “greener” pastures
