Midnight Meme Of The Day! Thank you Harrison Butker!

by Noah

Yes, thank you Harrison Butker for reminding us of what evil lurks in the minds of the devils who have chosen the Republican lifestyle. Sadly, some of us need a periodic reminder. I don't but I grew up in a town infested with Republicans. I witnessed the anti-semitism, misogyny, racism, and homophobia that comes with the conservative mindset. I saw it all and it made an impression, bigly. So, yeah, you might say that the little brainwormy kicker for the Kansas City Chiefs NFL franchise has provided the United States of America with a service after all. Harrison Butker has, unwittingly, or half wittingly, made a contribution to society. And, I have no doubt that Republicans and other neo-Nazi organizations will provide him with lucrative speaking engagements from now through the eternity of the destructive path of what seems, for now, a heinous unredeemable life that he has chosen not only for himself but wants to choose for others. The money's good, ain't it Harrison! Lick it up! Fill your bathtub with it and swim around in it. Drown your soul in it, Harrison.

We shouldn't be all that shocked about the things Harrison Butker said. While he was up at the podium tellingly worrying about what he fears is "the cultural emasculation of men" and pushing his women should just pop out babies and bake cookies philosophy, he also puked up this sample:

The bad policies and poor leadership have negatively impacted major life issues. Things like abortion, IVF, surrogacy, euthanasia, as well as a growing support for the degenerate cultural values and media all stem from pervasiveness of disorder.

Yes, even IVF is still an issue and so are what he sees as "degenerate" to these wackos. Two-bit Ayatollah Butker no doubt felt the encouraging vibe of such things in the environment he was given to say such things. Just look at the people that he and his neighbors send to Washington and their state legislatures to speak for them. Just imagine what he didn't say even if he wanted to embellish. He even got an ovation from most of the audience. reports that sales of his football jersey have soared since his remarks. His jersey is now outselling even that of his hall of fame quarterback, Patrick Mahomes and other star teammates such as Travis Kelce. Go ahead, Butker. Tell Kelce's girlfriend, Taylor Swift, that she has no value until she chooses to become a wife and mother. Tell  her to her face. Go ahead, make Taylor's day! And what about your own mother who just happens to be a renowned physicist and academic? Does Harrison have mommy issues? Sure, getting a football through a pair of goalposts takes some talent but I bet knowing how to get a crew of three safely to the moon and back takes more. Damn! Conservatives sure are tedious people!

The Kansas City Chiefs have been pretty silent about all this which should not be at all surprising given the history of the Hunt family's extreme right wing politics. The Hunts have owned the franchise for generations going back to the notorious H.L. Hunt. There was a recent brief appearance of a "distancing statement" from the City of Kansas City but it was quickly taken down. I guess someone in charge didn't agree. The NFL itself issued some sort of wimpy 2-sentence disclaimer in a pathetic attempt to wash its hands of the whole thing. Remember, to them Colin Kaepernick protesting police brutality and murder is bad. Misogyny? Hate directed at our LGBTQ+ brothers and sisters and a prominently displayed contempt for Pride Month? No problem! "Let's put Harrison Butker's face on a mug and sell that, too! How about some neat posters of him kicking a ball? How about some autographed mini footballs for the kids? How about an 'Inclusion Is Delusion' jersey for all 32 teams?"

While I waited, knowing nothing substantial would be forthcoming from the NFL and any of the various team ownership groups action-wise, fortunately at least the local nuns at Benedictine College had this to say about Butker's attack on women: 

As a founding institution and sponsor of Benedictine College, the sisters of Mount St. Scholastica find it necessary to respond to the controversial remarks of Harrison Butker as commencement speaker. 
The Sisters of Mt. Scholastica do not believe that Harrison Butker’s comments in his 2024 Benedictine College commencement address represent the Catholic, Benedictine, liberal arts college that our founders envisioned and in which we have been so invested. Instead of promoting unity in our church, our nation and the world, his comments seem to have fostered division. One of our concerns was the assertion that being a homemaker is the highest calling for a woman. We sisters have dedicated our lives to God and God’s people, including the many women whom we have taught and influenced during the past 160 years. These women have made a tremendous difference in the world in their roles as wives and mothers, and through their God-given talents in leadership, scholarship and their careers.
Our community has taught young women and men not just how to be ‘homemakers’ in a limited sense, but rather how to make a Gospel-centered, compassionate home within themselves where they can welcome others as Christ, We reject a narrow definition of what it means to be Catholic. We are faithful members of the Catholic Church who embrace and promote the values of the Gospel, St. Benedict, and Vatican II and the teachings of Pope Francis. 
We want to be known as an inclusive, welcoming community, embracing Benedictine values that have endured for more than 1500 years and have spread through every continent and nation. We believe those values are the core of Benedictine College.

As of this writing, I  haven't heard anything about any priests associated with the college having anything to say about Butker decrying LGBTQ+ lives as a "degenerate" and a "deadly sin." Too late now! 

Next up, Traitor Trump will introduce the latest Republican Ayatollah wannabe at a rally as a preview of an appearance at this summer's Republican Convention. Shall we expect a favorable comparison to "the wonderful Hannibal Lecter?"
