A Very American Coup By Michael – Louis Ingram, Editor-in-Chief...

Normal 0DENVER (BASN) — Is Brett Favre above public scorn?
Can the court of public opinion ever turn against this Great White Hope?
I always contended; had Favre been found to have indulged in fightin’ roosters or fish . . . even dogs, just like Mike Vick . . . officials in the law enforcement agencies which oversee such crimes – wouldn’t have busted him.
They’d instead turned a deaf-ear and blind-eye to such horrific tragedies – because of who n’ what Favre is symbolic of; Brett Favre “Represents.”
The court-of-public-opinion, the entrenched “establishment,” led by “good ol’ boys” would’ve come out-of-the-wood-work to defend the greatest, most colorful and down-to-earth “Great White Hope” of their era.
Many of you may not dig this . . . but dig this; the enraged animal luvin’ hunters, fisherman, trappers and fur-men – walking around, draggin their knuckles, feet clad in cow-ass, eating pig-knuckles and grazing on cow’s flesh breakfast/lunch n’ dinner . . . these cowboys would’ve not said a damn thing negative about their boy Favre, this would have been one of those instances when America separated the girly men, from real men
Hell, Rednecks from Fargo to Key Largo may have embraced the art of “ultimate dog fighting” – in order to minimize, rationalize, justify their Nordic alpha-male role-model’s hobbie.
By now, 4 years down-the-road, Ricky Bobby might have “embraced” dog fighting just like they wear “Wranglers” -because No. 4 does . . . .Might Brett be “untouchable” merely because he’s a White guy prospering in a Black man’s game?
Larry Bird walks on water for that exact reason, and Isiah Thomas has been branded-for- life for uttering what’s been said a gazillion times in Black barber shops across America, Bird is “The Great White Hope.”
Might the same “Teflon status” be granted Ben Rothelisberger – despite his obvious penis-control issues, the allegations of rape – twice, a Keystone Cop cover-up, all this – and he’s still above pissing off white dudes.
Brett n’ Big Ben represent the few White guys who can still compete within WASP America’s stolen, hijacked, traditional national pastimes.
I’d submit, “real men, who happen to be White, are somewhat embarrassed by the “Extreme Four-Square,” “Extreme Kite Flying,” “Extreme Marbles” their mancubs have been forced to adopt because they can no-longer compete in the racially integrated youth leagues and at the integrated high school level of sports.
“QB” is a set aside program for young White boys. A “feeder program” designed to create, manufacture . . . fabricate alpha-males – (muscles-with-a-mind); Ty Detmer, Gino Toretta, Danny Wuerffel, Chris Weinke, Eric Crouch, Matt Leinart, Tim Tebow – all Heisman men but the finale two, branded “bust” by the NFL experts, and legit questions abound for Matt and Tebow.
As well; Brett Favre the NFL QB represents . . . the superior White male character – the ability to rise above his drinkin’ n’ drugs, his “partying” he’s a family man, a regular guy . . . I guess so – in a nation where infidelity is the norm, the rule.
Deadspin and Huffington Post, the later particularly are anti-jock, and both stayed on-top of Brett . . . while the mainstream sports media has tried to ignore the truth, the human frailness . . . of a Great White Dope.
Who’s the pale-posterboy who’s going to push product now for corporate America? Brett is “every White guy”, every regular good ol boy . . . .
Here, let’s draw this out in the sand for the slow folks;
The NFL, because of over-whelming evidence and pressure – is being forced, and I mean kickin’ n’ screaming to review allegations Brett Favre, who the website said sent racy messages and photos to a former game hostess while he was the Jets’ quarterback in 2008 are true.
And Favre is no different, no better then Tiger or Kobe. No different then Newt Gingrich or FDR . . all men are merely . . . men. NFL grand pooh-pahs were forced to act after Deadspin posted a video that included below-the-waist photos, said to be of Favre.
“We are reviewing the matter,” league spokesman Greg Aiello said when asked about reports that a person alleged to be Favre sent voice mails and lewd pictures the 26-year-old Jenn Sterger, who’s website describes her as an actress, model, writer and television host. . . .
Her job for the Jets; introducing the Jets’ dance team, asking trivia questions and making announcements to the crowd. Can you say Bimbo??
When requested to respond to the Deadspin story on Thursday, Favre said: “I’m not getting into that. I’ve got my hands full with the Jets and am trying to get some timing down with our guys, so that’s all I’m going to discuss.”
Ain’t that a bitch? Donovan McNabb, Mike Vick, David Gerrard, all NFL signal callers, would not be permitted to skirt the issue the way this Great White Hope was.
In an e-mail to The Associated Press, A.J. Daulerio, Deadspin’s editor-in-chief, refused to reveal the source of the material. The source came to Deadspin – who paid “more than we ever have” for them.
“I was certain about the accuracy of her story, the evidence was presented substantiating that,” he said, “and then as things began to unfold, it appeared more and more likely that this happened. Plus, there will be more.”
The question is how much more can the vastly all Caucasian sports press pretend Brett, like their other hero George W. B. . . has nothing to apologize to America for.
