FUROR OVER GRUDEN EMAILS REVEALS THE INSANITY OF ‘CANCEL CULTURE’

PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, THE WEEKEND EDITION OCT. 15-7, 2021) — In 1984, Orwell labelled it “Thought Crime.” Today, we call it Cancel Culture. Differences without distinctions except in degree.

Nazi Germany provided impetus for Orwell’s novel. The hysteria over a football coach’s expression of thought fed the impetus for lynching Jon Gruden.

JON GRUDEN

THE PLANET no way endorses Gruden controversial emails to “locker room buddies,” but neither do we condemn private emails between friends. Given the First Amendment guaranteeing free speech, we abhor the garment-tearing over Gruden’s messages.

Not that we’re a Gruden fan. True, he won a Super Bowl with the immortal Trent Dilfer at QB, but that has proven an outlier in his coaching career. Actually, we love Gruden for helping establish the New England Patriots unprecedented dynasty

This issue illustrates the shocking erosion of the Bill of Rights and, more generally, the Constitution. In today’s political climate, seems we have only three choices: become Believers, disagree and remain silent for fear of being “cancelled,” or speak out and take your chances.

THE PLANET goes with that last choice. Nine years ago we went to court against a stacked legal system to fight for our First Amendment rights to publish in what was, in effect, an “away game.” Putting everything on the pass line for one roll of the dice earned us more than a right to speak out on this issue.

———- ooo ———-

Funniest of all, the same crowd having a bad hair day over Gruden’s e-mails loves hip-hop, a genre that gives the world such uplifting lyrics as:

Lil Kim: Fake nose, fake lips, fake ass, fake boobs, fake talent, filthy lyrics, filthy rich … but that’s “praiseworthy”

Lil’ Kim

I got the magic clit
I know if I get licked once, I get licked twice

Odd Future

“Spit on a bitch, punch on a bitch/After I eat some steak, have her tug on my dick” – “We Got Bitches”

Cam’ron

Dick in her mouth, I tell her (I’m getting money nigga)” – “Get ‘Em Girls”

Plies

“Or I can rub on your clit and just play with your neck/ And let me slide my finger in that pussy just to check/ Ain’t bout who spending the most money, it’s ’bout who fuck the best/ I’m a high bitch who a freak baby when it comes to sex” – “Ms. Pretty Pussy”

Danny Brown

Fuck her face like I was obligated/And still fucking with them freak hoes/Stank pussy smelling like Cool Ranch Doritos” – “Monopoly”

Lil Wayne

Ahh shit all over your face kid/ Spread them legs open far and wide/ Fuck this shit just let me put my dick inside” – “Gimme That Nut”

And these aren’t even the filthiest, just a random sampling. In case you’re wondering, THE PLANET defends these lyrics too, again citing the constitutional right to free speech.

How many of these “artists” use the word “nigger?” Perfectly acceptable, in the same way that our teenagers and young adults use such words as “nigga” and “cunt” in casual communication. Somehow, that’s fine, but a 10-year-old email from Jon Gruden, a 58-year-old white man, blond Chucky, jabbing about a guy’s lips and all conniption.

———- ooo ———-

From wire reports:

Monday’s [New York] Times report revealed email exchanges between Gruden, former Washington Football Team executive Bruce Allen, and others that started in 2010. The leaked emails were part of an NFL investigation into workplace misconduct at the Washington Football Team.

DEMAURICE SMITH

In the emails, Gruden referred to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell as a “faggot” and a “clueless anti football pussyy.” He criticized the NFL for its perceived pressure on the Los Angeles Rams to draft “queers,” referencing the team’s selection of Michael Sam in 2014 as the first openly gay NFL draft pick in league history. Gruden also criticized the league’s hiring of women as referees and players who protest for social justice reform during the national anthem. He also shared photos of topless women, some of whom were cheerleaders on the Washington Football Team, per the report.

Sam didn’t belong in the NFL, not because he was gay or black but because he wasn’t good enough. The  Titans drafted Sam in 2013 in the 7th round, the 249th selection out of 256, and waived him in September 2014. The Rams picked him up on 6-13-14, cutting him 8-31-14. The Cowboys signed Sam to the practice squad 9-3-14. He lasted to 10-21-14. Sam never played in an NFL game.

———- ooo ———-

Divisive politics and culture wars have seeped their way into every aspect of life in the USA, including the snow-flaking of sports.

Gruden’s not a statesman or minister. He’s a football coach, for krissakes.

Get a grip. The Bill of Rights is worth more than anyone’s hurt feelings.

Have a great weekend.

I find Pittsfield politics to be the most Orwellian reality since Orwell wrote about Nazi Germany’s impact on politics and national governments. First, Mayor Linda Tyer blocks my political emails because she doesn’t like to read about my criticisms of my native hometown, including the fact that she lives in a millionaires’ only gated community in far west Pittsfield very close to the border with Hancock, while the people she represents are mostly working class and underclass Pittsfield residents. Second, Pittsfield politics is a China-like one political (Democratic) Party system compounded by the fact that anyone not in the incestuous-like in-crowd are all blacklisted from both state and local government and the Dirty Bird publishing their letters to the Editor. Third, when one speaks out about how corrupt and undemocratic Pittsfield politics really is, they receive retribution from the ruling elites in Pittsfield and Boston. Fourth, in order to feel safe and secure in your job and life in Pittsfield, one has to either kiss the ruling elite’s dirty behinds or not exercise Free Speech out of fear of retribution. Fifth, Pittsfield is one of the most economically unequal areas in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the entire nation because there are no living wage jobs for the average working family. Sixth, Pittsfield does not invest in the common people to have living wage jobs, but instead, Pittsfield uses “Perverse Incentives” to take as much federally funded and state administered public aid for its Level 5 public schools, Social Services Agencies, and high per capita welfare caseloads as it can get. Seventh, Ward 4, which has mostly well off households, runs Pittsfield politics because the voters who live there decide each and every citywide election year in and year out, which means the other six Wards have no real representation. Eighth, Pittsfield is still polluted with GE’s industrial chemicals called PCBs that have caused cancer in thousands upon thousands of local residents, but the ruling elites’ never do anything to fight GE to make GE pay for and cleanup its toxic waste pollution there. Nine, dangerous downtown Pittsfield is full of homelessness, poverty, Social Services agencies, drugs, violent crime, prostitution, and the like, and the area that surrounds North Street is sarcastically called “The Ring of Poverty”, but Pittsfield didn’t have to tank to rock bottom if there were real community leaders who didn’t live in wealthy gated communities and were totally disconnected from the people they supposedly represent in state and local government. Tenth, whenever one writes about Pittsfield’s distressed economy and political corruption, they receive the pat answer from Good Old Boys such as Cliff Nilan, “No one cares anymore”. In closing, I wish George Orwell was alive over 71 years since his death in early-1950 so he could write a book about Pittsfield politics!

The government always makes the politically-connected vested and special interests a lot of money. Over the past 5 decades, most of the gains in income and capital went to the wealthiest households, while common people feel fortunate to either make a little money or cut even because the underclass grows larger and larger year after year. Due to the rigged political system, the elites on Wall Street and in the Swamp always wins no matter what happens, while the rest of us live in Social Darwinism or “Swim or Sink”. It doesn’t matter if the Republican Party or the Democratic Party is in power because the government always serves the same financial elites. The only real political party in government are the Incumbents or career politicians whose only job is to raise PAC money (from K Street) and get reelected with their campaign war chests.

In Pittsfield politics, the one political (Democratic) party ruling elites in Boston and Pittsfield are totally disconnected from the people and taxpayers they supposedly represent in government. The political hacks who run the show in Pittsfield Massachusetts count on citizen and taxpayer apathy and their use of retribution to serve the vested and special interests, while working and underclass families there have to live with Level 5 failing public schools, unsafe streets, little to no living wage jobs, high municipal taxes, fees and public debts and other liabilities, and their out-of-touch Mayor – Linda Tyer – living in a wealthy gated community.

I agree that the corrupt establishment Boston-based Democratic Party has failed Pittsfield Massachusetts and many other Commonwealth communities similar to Pittsfield. I live near Lowell and Fitchburg Massachusetts from my perch in Amherst, New Hampshire. From what I see, working class families live in Lowell or Fitchburg and commute to Boston because there are no working class homes or apartments in the expensive Boston area. Nashua has busses that take us into Boston, but the area that I live in does not have train services. The Northeast or “Bos -Wash” corridor is tailored to the financial elites, which means that most of us non-politically-connected common folk have no real political representation in government. In my neighboring town of Merrimack NH, Fidelity is a big employer of local people. My former neighbor who works there was awarded a trip to Hawaii and he proposed to his now wife there, and I heard that they recently had a baby together. We all have to live somewhere, and I suggest we learn to take the good with the bad, and enjoy life instead of always being mad that we have to pound sand.

I have been promoting CA Governor Brown’s flat tax proposal on this blog since the beginning TSC. Come join the fight. Get rid of all tax loopholes and charge everyone a 10% tax on all earnings. I don’t think you nor your crowd has ever backed me on this proposal. I also want MA to follow what the citizens voted for decades ago, get back to 5% tax rate. Supposedly we have a surplus so there is no reason note to follow the referendum that was voted in by the voters

It truly is mind boggling that black woman do not seem to speak out about the disgusting demeaning rap lyrics. Why is that acceptable but if some white guy, not even publicly, expresses racist comments he is castigated?

I really would like to know the mindset and if there is one POC that is on board here I would love for them to help me understand. Or even a black man because obviously they are accepting it as well.

Dan, yours is little more than a lament from a crotchety older white guy. Remember Ted Nugent and Stranglehold? Here are the lyrics:

Here I come again now baby
Like a dog in heat
Tell it’s me by the clamor now baby
I like to tear up the street
Now I been smokin’ for so long
You know I’m here to stay
Got you in a stranglehold baby
You best get oughta the way
The road I cruise is a bitch now baby
But no you can’t turn me round
And if a house gets in my way baby
You know I’ll burn it down
You ran the night that you left me
You put me in my place
Got you in a stranglehold baby
You better trust your fate
Yeah sometimes you wanna get higher
And sometimes you gotta start low
Some people think they gonna die someday
I got news I’ve got to go
Come on come on up
Come on come on up
Come on come on up
Come on come on up
Come on come on come on come on baby
Come on come on come on come on up
Come on come on come on come on baby
Come on come on come on
Road I cruise is a bitch now
You know you can’t turn me round
And if a house gets in my way
You know I’ll burn it down
You ran the night that you left me
You put me in my place
I got you in a stranglehold baby
That night I crushed your face

This song is all violence and misogynistic garbage. And it was written by a white guy who thinks Trump is actually a good guy.

Come on already.

Okay so where do we stand with the song Colored Spade from the musical Hair?
Or the Violent Femmes ” Black Girls”?
And while I get it I do have to say I’m disappointed to see Mick and the boys self censoring on this tour. Given that Mick is associated with rebellion and being anti-establishment ( I think history has proven that more Keef’s persona than Mick’s, but whatever for now) and Mick is like one of the king gods of that in rock and roll culture, this was a bit astounding.
Fun fact: autocorrect tried to change the words “a bit astounding” to “vintage sounding”. Apparently the AI on my device is a WAP millennial that just okay Boomer’ed me.

But, is it true that handgun moon will be hosting an illegal after hours fundraiser for her good friends Puki and dingy dina with a bartop twerking contest to negro spirituals, including this from the top 10 kool-aid negro spiritual “Slob on my Knob” performed by Three 6 Mafia, Tear da Club up Thugs?

Slob on my knob
Like corn on a cob
Check in with me, and do your job
Lay on the bed, and give me head
Don’t have to ask, don’t have to beg
Juicy is my name
Sex is my game
Let’s call the boys, let’s run a train
Squeeze on my nuts
Lick on my butt
That natural curly hair, please don’t touch
First find a mate
Second find a place
Third find a bag, to hide the ho face
Real name rover
I said bend over
I started to knock, then came the odor
Smelled like mush
Should’ve had a woosh
Told her to stop, and take a douche
While she did that
I didn’t want the cat
So I bounced out and never came back

Suck a nigga dick or something
Suck a nigga dick or something
Suck a nigga dick or something
Suck a nigga dick or something

Watching the tail of the the City Council meeting,Councilor member Moon questioned a vote tally and said the vote was seven to four? There were ten councilors present. Then she says she thought Councilor Morandi voted yes? What you heard was seven to four but when you were told there were only ten City Councilors you were wrong on both the counts.

Mark Zuckerberg was flipping votes for Biden in all the key states in the 2020 election where Trump lost by a narrow margin. He spent 450 million dollars using mail-in ballots to get Democrat votes in these important states. Democrats now want this trick that Zuckerberg used to be in every election going forward, but Republicans are rightly outraged and are banning it in as many states as they are able, but Democrat states will not ban this practice so I’m not sure how we stop this meddling in elections by this private company. Only election committees are supposed to be involved in getting out the vote, but it shows how Zuckerberg helped flip the election for Biden and the interference of big tech in our elections is real and dangerous.

Pelosi still wants big brother government to keep track of any deposit into your bank of $600.00 and above. This means that since most people are paid every two weeks, big government will have their eye on your bank account constantly and if they determine that you have too much in there, big government may decide to do something about it. This is a total invasion of privacy and just one of many freedoms that will be taken from Americans in these bills that are massive and Pelosi doesn’t want us to know everything that is in them since it will send us all further into government dependence.

I see trees of green
Red roses too
I see them bloom
For me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

I see skies of blue
And clouds of white
The bright blessed day
The dark sacred night
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

The colours of the rainbow
So pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces
Of people going by
I see friends shaking hands
Saying how do you do
They’re really saying
I love you

I hear babies cry
I watch them grow
They’ll learn much more
Than I’ll ever know
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world
Yes, I think to myself
What a wonderful world
Ooh, yes

Joe Manchin refusing to give Bernie Sanders his far left socialist agenda saying Americans are watching inflation go out of control and goods are scarce and the far left wants to make it even worse with these massive spending bills? Good for Joe Machin, but he and only one other moderate are fighting against all the fanatics in the far left Democratic party.

Off topic…anyone else see the viral FB post about Earl Persips father killing junkies by selling them counterfeit oxycodone laced with fentanyl out of his car dealership in Linden St

Good thing we names a park after this family. Pillars of the community.

VOTE. HIM. OUT

Dan, is it possible for you to investigate Dumpster Earl’s father. It seems like a cover-up much like the stolen snow plow found on the front of Dumpster’s truck last winter.

I remember hearing that the cops, for a long time, look the other way while the BIG DUMP’S dad was dealing drugs. Now that the BIG DUMP is a schitty clowncilor, living in a $420,000/420 house, not in the ghetto, there’s even more reason to believe there could be a cover-up if the BIG DUMP’S dad is peddling illicit drugs again and killing junkies, which I really don’t give a shit about. The more dead junkies there are, the better.

I’m not interested in voting him out due to the sins of his father; I am interested in voting him out because in the recent q&a with the men and women running for CC, his answer on how to address the local homelessness population was to tell them where to go to receive services.
Um, Earl?
If those services were effective, we wouldn’t be having this conversation.
So maybe don’t double down on them.

Dan, outstanding column and thanks for telling it like it is. It’s crazy now a days, and for the record most of what the coach said is true, and more important than anything, it was private communication. And that lil Kim is disgusting looking. I’ve heard of the magic drink but never a magic clit. I couldn’t drink enough to wanna bag her.

You have excused Gruden because you are unaware of who is hurt by old school slurs.Do you know that all proffessional teams are warned not to promote language like this.He chose to put it in emails because hes a guy a real man with a football mentality and that’s ok for the generation of White men who want the Power to make this country great again.Remember when a working man could get drunk and go home and beat the piss out of his wife and kids.Gruden does what he wants like many in America now in spite of the fact that they are wrong.Hes an idiot.Dont tell a school or business or a mom dad or church would agree with you or Gruden.I will say this and that is that 73 million Americans agree with you that it’s OK to be UNWOKE.

I was grossed out too. I wasn’t sure even about posting as I don’t want to give the louts another listener.

I also don’t understand the comparison between rap lyrics and a manager of a multi million dollar franchise getting called out for unprofessional conduct. If you use bigoted terms and are dumb enough to write them down repeatedly to your colleagues in 2012 or whenever this knucklehead coach sent his plethora of ill advised missive well I guess it just proves he has bad judgement. Football is big business. Its not cancel culture — it’s protect millions of dollars and lots of jobs practicality.

As I reread your column this morning something started to bother me. Who leaked the private emails between 2 friends? Isn’t this illegal? I know there has not been a court case so it didn’t come out in court. Will Gruden sue for the millions he is losing and the defamation of character? I hope he does because I think this was leaked by the NFL although how corrupt our government is with leaking made up stories to character assassinate people I guess they would have to be a suspect as well

Biden continues the dangerous rationing of monoclonal antibodies. He wants to make it equitable, but he is making a crisis where none existed before. He wants to equitably distribute the antibodies, but the company that makes them says there was never a shortage. Florida which has one of the largest populations of elderly has gone from 31,000 treatments to 26,000 treatment of the antibody per week. Desantis is fighting to get more for his state and recently the company that makes the antibody sent him some directly, but many states may not know they can do that. Just more incompetence from this administration that promised to fight COVID in this country.

Stories you won’t hear from the Eagle

Sexual assaults in schools are up several hundred percent across Berkshire County.
Schools are just not reporting them.
Richmond School had a violent sexual assault this week as did Conte Middle School.

There have been a dozen or more cases of Covid across post offices in Berkshire county, as well as a number at the SS office, the FSA, and the national Archives office.
The federal government, at the insistence of the Biden administration is not reporting ANY cases of Covid to local boards of health, not here or anywhere else.

It’s reported today that Nance Pelosi is planning on doing a “cut and run” if she passes the massive revolutionary bills to turn American into a giant welfare state. She knows that eventually the country will run out of “other people’s money” in this massive welfare state and she wants to be long gone enjoying the life of a wealthy woman of leisure so nobody can come after her and blame her for passing this monstrosity. It also explains why she has zero interest in telling the American people what’s in the monstrous bills. She could care less. She will have tons of money from her investments in these changes mentioned in the bills. She even gives 200 million to a park next to her house in the enormous bills to make life so grand and pleasant for herself while the rest of us will be struggling to survive in the nightmare she and her globalist buddies are creating for this country.

I have an idea for our state legislators is take the surplus money and use the pike revenue to widen the pike….it was bumper to bumper the whole way. This will create shovel ready jobs and many others for decades. The revenue from the vehicles using the pike will pay for it. Why don’t they push this through? I know they have heard this idea before
