"Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye."
We were on our way to the capitol this morning, when we heard the interview with Glenn Beck live:
"We don’t care what the NFL thinks and certainly what their political policies are because they are not a political arm of the state of Texas or the United States of America. They need to learn their place in the United States, which is to govern football, not politics."It gets better:
"I cannot name or even count the number of Texans who told me that they were not watching the NFL," Abbott said. "They were protesting the NFL this year because of the gross political statement allowed to be made by the NFL by allowing these players, who are not oppressed, who are now almost like snowflake little politicians themselves unable to take the United States National Anthem being played."This is all well and good, and someone certainly needs to call the NFL out for their attempts to dictate social policy in the state of Texas, but...
...The University of Texas does far worse than this on a regular basis, and Greg Abbott has done nothing but protect them in two and a half years as governor.
The results speak for themselves.
But who cares as long as the Football team carries a couple of flags as they come out of the tunnel, right?!?
Bottom Line: If Greg Abbott were serious about confronting wealthy institutions that push left-wing social policies while hiding behind patriotism at Football games, he would do something about the one over which he actually has jurisdiction.
