White Nationalists Don’t Like My Excitement For Football Being Back

I found out Saturday morning that white nationalists are not fans of my excitement for the return of football.

I planned to wake up Saturday morning, head over to the store, grab a bunch of steaks, crack a few beers, watch some football and watch Conor McGregor’s fight with Floyd Mayweather tonight. At no point did I plan on getting a lecture from white nationalists on the stupidity of football.

It all started after I wrote an article criticizing mental midget Richard Spencer for encouraging white people to boycott football instead of watching “thugs” play. Seems totally rational and not racist at all.

I simply pointed out watching football, drinking a few cold beers and hanging out with your friends seems like a better time than lecturing people what white nationalism. Well, that did not go over well with Spencer’s crowd, and the responses ranged from downright disturbing to kind of funny.

And here is my personal favorite hot take from those who hide behind fake names and pictures on the internet.

First off, my masculinity is tied to some of those things — I love weapons, beer, red meat and football. God bless the fact these are my hobbies instead of marching around with a bunch of dudes and no women in sight, as they chant about garbage nobody understands.

I could spend a few minutes destroying these people, but we all know you’re living a pretty sad life if you have to hide on your computer. Who in their right mind would willingly choose to attend a white nationalist rally over a tailgate for a football game with plenty of attractive women, cold drinks, great food, a great atmosphere and an incredible game on the field?

I’m not gonna go out and question the manhood of anybody who would choose the former, but I think you all understand what I’m getting at.

Anyways, I’m off to the store to grab those steaks and beers. It’s going to be a great day in America, and I’m glad we all get to celebrate the return of football. I’ll take my schedule over the schedule of a white nationalist rally any day of the week.
