READ THESE PARAGRAPHS FIRST THEN TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK. My comments below. You can guess how I feel.
From the New York Times this morning…
“FIFA, the soccer world’s governing body, said on Saturday that it had provisionally suspended Luis Rubiales, president of Spain’s soccer federation, amid an investigation that he FORCIBLY KISSED the player Jennifer Hermoso after Spain’s Women’s World Cup victory last Sunday.”
“Mr. Rubiales’s kiss at the Women’s World Cup medals ceremony last weekend in Australia — broadcast live to millions — CAST A PALL over the Spanish team’s celebrations, drawing attention away from a proud national moment.”
[I added the ALL CAPS above over the words I felt were primary to this event.]
Cast a pall?!?! Seriously? Over Spain 🇪🇸 winning their very first ever Women’s World Cup in the Most Beautiful Game?!?! What the heck has happened to humanity?!? How did we get here??? Is this US? All of us?!?! Or is this just Woke-crazed bored-ass Gen Z doing all this??? We’re watching an incredible game, my beloved England 🏴 team gets beat by a better Spain 🇪🇸 and we cannot help but feel as elated as the happy Spaniards!!! It was exciting and amazing and breathtaking!!! Our human spirit filled with thrills and chills and celebration 🎉!
And then a few lonely bored attention-needing Woke-hungry Gen Z’ers who obviously don’t like football focus instead on the spanish director kissing one of the players, a moment that lasted less than 1 second, in all the jubilation, and that’s it…, they’ve completely ruined the moment and event for Spain and the entire world.
A normal everyday thing we see in sport all the time. 2 men footballers win a tough match. They run all over the field screaming and whooping it up, take off their shirts, grab each others sweaty bodies and hug and kiss each other, maybe they make funny faces because they didn’t mean to kiss but they don’t care because they’re celebrating, they slap each others butts, they slide on the ground, they’re celebrating!!! We say nothing. Because we get it. The human spirit has been lifted to other worldly heights.
What the hell happened here that was so “bad” to this new breed of terribly annoying bum-rushing woke a+*holes?!?! How the hell did they miss the whole point of the event? To be that absent from the reality we were all experiencing and instead focus on something so small and insignificant..?
I had to watch video clips of the exact moment 5 times before I even noticed it!!!
And now this poor girl, Hermoso, will spend the rest of her life having to be known for and speak about getting kissed instead of being a good footballer!!! Not because she wants to. But because others will force her to. These fockers have ruined her career, completely changed the trajectory of her life. How sad this is for her.
The spanish director will be fine. He’ll serve his 90 day suspension and come back and keep winning. If he’s smart he’ll rightfully ignore media questions about that 1 second moment and focus his answers on football.
But the girl…. Her name will now go down in Woke history and will only be known for “being forcibly kissed by a dude”. No one will ask about her playing style or her incredible win over England in 2023. Damn that sucks.
What i wonder is… is this all of us? Most of us? Or is this just these bored unhappy little Woke-obsessed Gen Z’ers?!?!
I dont know about you but I am SO over their Woke movement. We were all on board 5-6 years ago. I was in the STREETS and on the PHONES with congress and the White House for MeToo and BLM!!! But they’ve swung this pendulum WAY TOO FAR now.
It’s been ugly, admittedly. And it’s getting more ugly. These little aholes are angry and unhappy with their lives and deliberately trying to ruin other people’s lives. It’s sick and perverted. And yet the media is still running with it, enlarging and exaggerating it even further.
