The statue of the assassinated Pat Tillman outside University of Phoenix Stadium is a symbol of the merging of the myth of 9/11, glorification of war and the NFL.
Of course there will be an NFL season. There was never any doubt that the big diversion of sport would not go on. Especially since the season will begin on the 10th anniversary of 9/11. There would have been government intervention, perhaps at gunpoint, to make sure the season started on time. The opportunity to reinforce the official story of 9/11 to millions of people through tributes, flyovers and moments of silence could not slip away.
It’s not that I don’t like the game. We grew up with it and I’ve been to a few games in Nashville since 9/11 but no more. It takes police state procedures to get in and there was always the military boys lining the sidelines, a giant flag stretched across the field, an eagle flying in from the upper deck to his handler on the field and the token country singer wailing away on “the bombs bursting in air.” $6 to $8 beer doesn’t help either.
There’s been a lot of talk about head injuries in the NFL and the shortened lives of players. Not that much different from some soldiers coming back from the fraudulent wars. Both players and soldiers are pawns in the game of profit for the ‘owners.’ The difference being the degree of pay they receive.
Football and war are joined at the hip. Violence is the American way. I’ll watch the 9/11 games but the only jumping up and down and yelling I’ll do is when they repeat the official stories of what happened on Sept. 11, 2001 and I scream “You are all damn liars!”
Protocol # 13
In order to distract people who may be too troublesome from discussions of
questions of the political we are now putting forward what we allege to be new
questions of the political, namely, questions of industry. In this sphere let them
discuss themselves silly! The masses are agreed to remain inactive, to take a rest
from what they suppose to be political (which we trained them to in order to use them
as a means of combating the GOY governments) only on condition of being found new
employments, in which we are prescribing them something that looks like the same
In order that the masses themselves may not guess what they are
about WE FURTHER DISTRACT THEM WITH AMUSEMENTS, GAMES, PASTIMES,
PASSIONS, PEOPLE’S PALACES …. SOON WE SHALL BEGIN THROUGH THE PRESS TO
PROPOSE COMPETITIONS IN ART, IN SPORT IN ALL KINDS: these interests will finally
distract their minds from questions in which we should find ourselves compelled to
oppose them. Growing more and more disaccustomed to reflect and form any opinions
of their own, people will begin to talk in the same tone as we because we alone shall
be offering them new directions for thought … of course through such persons as will
not be suspected of solidarity with us.
