The LA Dodgers Hall of Fame broadcaster, Vin Scully, was asked on Saturday night after speakin’ at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium how felt he about the NFL protests. Durin’ a question and answer session ole boy had this to say,
“During the fall and winter, I watch the NFL on Sunday, and it’s not that I’m some great patriot. I was in the Navy for a year, didn’t go anywhere, didn’t do anything, but I have overwhelming respect and admiration for anyone who puts on a uniform and goes to war. So the only thing that I can do in my little way is to not to preach; I will never watch another NFL game.”
Now obviously he got a long applause and crazy cheers for sayin’ what the audience wanted to hear. It’s called caterin’ to the duns that came to see you. It is what it is.
But let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! What it’s really called is bein’ ignorant of what the First Amendment of the United States Constitution says. Since ole Vin and none of the duns in the audience have actually read the First Amendment I’ll share with them what it actually says.
It says playboy, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”
Now if you’re not smart enough to decipher what that actually says then let me put it in layman’s terms or just some straight up everyday hood vernacular.
It says that the First Amendment guarantees all citizens, that’s duns that live legally in America, freedoms concernin’ religion, expression, assembly, and the right to petition. It says that the cats in Congress can’t promote one religion over another or restrict a boy (person) from practicin’ his or her’s religion. It guarantees the right to speak freely in the press, that’s what I’m doin’ right now playa, and the right for individuals to do the same. That means you can speak freely too. It also guarantees the right for citizens, that’s all of the duns that live legally in America, to peaceably assemble and petition whatever they feel is foolishness to the government. That means that the NFL players have a right as duns that live in America to take a knee durin’ the national anthem. The flag and the military gives them that freedom as stated in the Constitution.
Nowhere in that joint does it say that you have to like what the duns are protestin’ about. It doesn’t say they you have to agree with them or be comfortable with it. To be American is to have the right to exercise that Right!!
And just because Vin Scully is a Hall of Fame baseball broadcaster doesn’t mean that he’s read and understood the Constitution of the United States. His opinion doesn’t mean jack squat to those players because he’s lived a completely different American experience than they have. He’s just another uninformed cat with his mouth open lookin’ for applause and you can stop me when I start lyin’!
1) Ole boy: noun – the person that I’m currently talkin’ about.
2) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.
The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
