Freedom before Football: Boycott the NFL
By Doug Newman

To paraphrase the 1978 tune “Dreadlock Holiday” by 10cc: I don’t like sports, I love them.
Even if you are not into sports, this still pertains to you.
It is about what you value. What are your priorities? Will you trade your birthright as an American for a few hours of entertainment pottage?
Will you draw the line now and speak up when the cost of doing so is relatively minor? Or will you wait until dissent equals treason and is punished by death? Tyranny is like cancer in that early detection is of monumental importance.
For the last few years, I have blogged rather extensively on the danger posed by enhanced security procedures at America’s airports. This danger is far greater than any posed by Islamojihadipsychopaths. TSA does not protect you at all. And if it is not stopped it will metastasize throughout society.
The NFL has been doing pat-down searches of fans since 2007. This week they announced they will be implementing enhanced pat-downs at all 32 stadiums. This will include frisking from the ankles to the knees and then from the waist up.
(Oh well, I guess the terrorists will just have to set off their bombs in stadium parking lots, five feet from the groping stations, in those massive crowds.)
This new policy was rumored to be in response to the incident at the Jets-Cowboys game last Sunday where a fan allegedly used a stun gun during a scuffle in the stands. However, the NFL now denies this. More likely, the new “best practice” of stadium gate rape is a result of the partnership between the NFL and the DHS that was announced before the most recent Super Bowl.
