USA World Cup Hockey Coach John Tortorella: Geez, if we run this country as White men want it ran . . . .

Updated: September 9, 2016

Team USA World Cup Hockey coach John Tortorella isn’t backing-down in the face of criticism and damnation, he’s ala Donald Trump “doubled-down” and said he’ll not reverse his stance of benching  players for not standing during the national anthem. “If any of my players sit on the bench for the national anthem, they will sit there the rest of the game.”

Tell me “oh great White man,” why should American Indians, Afro-Americans and Mexican Americans honor a flag which flew over stolen land, cotton plantations which were really houses of horrors and Indian Reservations?

Tortorella explained. Listen, our country – we’re in a great country because we can express ourselves and I am not against expressing yourselves. That’s what’s great about our country – we can do that,” Tortorella said. “But when there are men and women that give their lives for their flag, for their anthem, have given their lives, continue to put themselves on the line with our services for our flag, for our anthem – families that have been disrupted, traumatic physical injuries, traumatic mental injuries for these people that give us the opportunity to do the things we want to do, there’s no chance an anthem and a flag should come into any type of situation where you’re trying to make a point. It is probably the most disrespectful thing you can do as a U.S. citizen is to bring that in, because that’s our symbol. All for – express yourself. That’s what’s so great. That’s what everybody does. But no chance when it comes to the flag and anthem, no chance.”

Wow, gee, that sounds like genuine, yet hypocritical,  authentic frozen-redneck tundra gibberish to me.  Dubious nonsensical bullshit. It aggravates Tortorella and his peers that an arrogant, uppity Black millionaire won’t acknowledge his success took place in allegedly the White man’s nation, under his Constitutional, capitalistic system and the flag which represents all this.

How dare you not be grateful . . . boy!!!

Disrespectful? Seriously, in our diverse nation, with the history we have, in that all the conquered and exploited people’s have been trying to get from underneath the White man’s oppressive, repressive thumb . . . ? And now we’re going to allow a White men, like Tortorella  to force and coerce folks based on what he deem’s respectful?  But wait, don’t stop here – when did White men define and set the standard for what is socially/politically  respectful? And, if we’re talking respectful then we’re dealing with a WASP mindset, that when they had their druthers . . . a Black man had to bow-down and kiss your White ass, really, that’s not much of an exaggeration; can’t make eye contact, can’t raise your voice,  have to give up your seat on the bus, can’t sue or press legal charges against White folks, can’t look at or touch White women, even with their consent and deep lustful desire to have us do so?  On the flip-side- White men raped Black women to the point they created Black Americans . . . no shit, ponder it for a while.

Geez, if we run this country as White men want it ran . . . .

Look at US History, examine America’s foreign policy of global conquest – undeniably you’ve great evidence to conclude White men have little, if no respect for the other kids on the global  playground.

Hockey Coach, John Tortorella is a shining, scary, angry example of how America would look, feel, taste and smell if White men had their druthers . . . welded this type audacious clout, impact, influence and say-so within American life. Envision how Tortorella would have dealt with Tommy Smith and John Carlos in Mexico City, circa 1968. Brand it “blind patriotism” and we all know patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel.  Now note a “scoundrel” is one who is dishonest and unscrupulous, and I’m sorry, but I believe this issue of “honoring/recognizing Ol Glory is truthfully based on control and power. White men want to impose their power and control people, especially Black people. This is akin to the “Right’s” desire to have Mexicans/Latinos only speak english. It’s forced mandatory accommodation,  “making,” “forcing” Black folks to do not as we want, but as White folks want us to – which is the White races preferred relationship. White Americans like their ebony gladiators to be quiet, docile, obedient – to speak when only spoken-to. Please see Joe Louis, Shaq, Floyd Patterson, Dennis Rodman, Rodney Harrison, Mike Tyson or George Foreman – useful idiots, pawns in a game they don’t understand.

Dumbass jocks.

Look, let’s be clear – Trump and Tortorella are symbolic of – a “surge” to regain absolute  audacious power and control over America, to define what it is and who is, and who isn’t an American.  It’s an last-ditch effort to ram traditionally 2nd and 3rd class Americans back in their subservient place. To strongarm Americans of color and unruly White  women whom based on laws White men can no-longer punk and pimp.  It’s a move to take-back power, hang-on to it for as long as possible, and by any means deemed necessary by White men.

Shut the front door, how scary is that notion?

My God, good lord . . . Mary sweet mother of baby Jesus. .  .  . can you phantom, can you visualize what this nation would look like if we’d no Civil Rights Era and White men like still Tortorella  ran the show?

You ain’t got to wonder too-very long to conclude this cat is voting for Lord Trump, Klan endorsed or not he doesn’t give a damn. God, mother and country outweigh human and civil rights, by far to these simple-minded, small-minded clones of Archie Bunker.

I want to see this red, white n’ blue neanderthal just try to bench players for voicing their opinion. And yes, I want to see him do it in the game of Hockey, and not for his Columbus Ohio NHL team, but rather for a team which supposedly represents the land of the freedom and liberty. It’d be “special” and touching, perhaps a “come to baby Jesus” moment for millions of Black folks if a White boy stood-up and sitting down, acting like a member of the human race as opposed to a White man defending his race. A full, complete 360’  man who chooses to  “stand with”  his fellow brothers n’ sisters in solidarity against unbridled policing, an unchecked Laissez-Faire capitalism  investor class, i.e., the establishment which regardless of what’s printed on the moolah about in God we trust, you n’ I know it’s honestly more like ; God is money. . . and  money is god.”

Wall street’s motto. . . life ain’t nothin’ but bitches n’ money

Main streets’ homespun adage; Get rich or die trying mofo. . .!

Coach Tortorella and the White people who feel as he does, because it’s vastly Euro-Americans who’re going cra-cra over Black people not acknowledging American exceptionalism, ought read a little Frederick Douglass, Google who he is, he’s easily the most noted Black abolitionist/leader  in 19th century US history,  this is a piece of a response he penned when ask to participate in “Independence Day” festivities . . .

“What, to the American slave, is your Fourth of July? I answer: a day that reveals to him, more than all other days of the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is a constant victim. To him, your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciation of tyrants, brass fronted impudence; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade and solemnity, are, to Him, mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy—a thin veil to cover up crimes that would disgrace a nation of savages. There is not a nation of the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of these United States at this very hour.

This Fourth of July is yours, not mine. You may rejoice, I must mourn. To drag a man in fetters into the grand illuminated temple of liberty, and call upon him to join you in joyous anthems, were inhuman mockery and sacrilegious irony. Do you mean, citizens, to mock me, by asking me to speak today”

I couldn’t have said it better, I’m gonna drop my keyboard and shake, rattle and roll out of here.
