There’s something about seeing a pigskin being tossed in the air as college players tackle one another. It’s all-American. It’s as American as apple pie and the flag itself. Yet, Dems in their anarchist, progressive ways, set to destroy yet another pastime of Americans.
Trump’s not going to be the one to stand in the way of college athletes performing on the field, displaying their talents, and soaking up the adoration of the fans. He even tweeted, “Play college football!”
The Trump-hating left has grabbed onto this concept like a rabid dog to make it disappear. Anything that Trump loves must come to an end. And college football is on their list, identifying that the pandemic is preventing players from playing.
Wash your hands. Wear a mask. Approximately 1% of the population will be truly impacted by the pandemic. This means that college football can still happen. As for whether fans can watch in person or by TV will depend on the actual city. Where there are breakouts and high rates of transmission, the players may have to settle for empty stands.
People want college football to continue for a number of reasons. It’s a part of the American culture. And, college athletes have worked so hard to get to where they are.
As Fox News host Laura Ingraham tweets, it’s all political. “The Left doesn’t care — they think removing joy from the fall will hurt Trump, so they’ll push to shut down football.” It’s become clear that the left thinks that the best way for them to win in the fall is to steal all joy from Americans. They came after baseball. Now, they’re coming after football. It’s what they do. They’re stealers of joy.
What the left doesn’t realize is that they’re hurting themselves. They do everything they can to pin what’s wrong in the country on Trump. The murders in the streets? Trump. The looting in the cities? Trump. The falling economy? Trump.
Now, the MAGA culture knows that it’s all lies. They can see through the charades to know that the far left are hard at work. The murders and the looting are in Dem-run cities. The falling economy is as a result of the Dem-led House not signing off on measures fast enough and not taking Trump’s advice to open the cities back up.
The left is trying to hit Trump where it hurts. They know that Trump has used college football as a political platform. He’s attended games. He’s cheered in the crowds. Meanwhile, the progressives whisper in corners that if they can get rid of college football, they can kick a leg out from under Trump.
Their desperation is starting to stink up America.
Trump has it right. “They want to play football. Let them play. Let them play. Let them play. And they feel safer on the field than they do walking around doing nothing.”
That’s the heart of it right there. The players WANT to play. They want to get out there and compete. The need to play is coursing through their veins. They’re being safe. They’re social distancing. As long as all of the teams are being responsible, let them play. To simply say no and blame the pandemic is childish and wrong.
Most of the college conferences already committed to holding fall football. However, there have been a few powerful conferences that have decided to postpone. It’s been estimated that 1,000 games will be canceled.
And for what? So that the Dems can use this as a way to kill joy and blame it on Trump one more time before the elections?
Senator Ben Sasse, a Congressional Republican, identifies the heart of why it’s important to keep playing the games: “The structure and discipline of football programs is very likely safer than what the lived experience of 18-to-22-year-olds will be if there isn’t a season.”
Just let them play. It’s what America needs right now. The far left will need to think of something else to do to get the votes but leave college football alone.
