RGIII: Americans ‘Held Hostage By The Tyranny Of Political Correctness’

Some people do not like sports, but RGIII is one the most popular QBs now. He is young, but it seems he is aware of what is going on. He has access to more young people than we could ever have.

"Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III took to Twitter on Tuesday to complain about the “tyranny of political correctness” he believes is holding American culture “hostage."

He goes on to define Tyranny
“Tyranny- ‘a condition imposed by some outside agency or force living under the tyranny of the clock’ or political correctness…”

Twitter Responses
“Tyranny? Do we share a common reality?” one person tweeted back to RGIII. “Loyalty to local racist named team fading…fading,” wrote another.

RGIII respose:
The Redskins quarterback and 2011 Heisman Trophy winner responded to the backlash on Tuesday evening, writing, “If we speak..we say it the wrong way If we do not speak we are cowards….”

You're right, they weren't playing the packers.

They were playing the other best team called the Pittsburgh Steelers. You know, the other team in the Super Bowl that was NOT Green Bay?

I take it the Packers are your team?

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

Lol

Yeah, Packers are my team. That game bugs me. I totally understand where you are coming from. The Refs are real bad in the NFL, plus they used the whole replacement refs as the problem but replacement refs never reviewed it up top. If Packers won against Seattle, 49ers would have had to go to Wisconsin to play the Pack but what ever.

Just a side note, but...

Diddn't RGIII have a busted wheel before that game even began. Way to brag that your guy was able to outplay a cripple.... Also, let's go Rams, as a long suffering fan, it has been way too long since 2001.

haha THERE'S that divisional rivalry

Yep. RG3 had an injured ACL/PCL/Whatever CL it was. But guess what? His coaching staff along with RG3 himself said "he is good to play." They were wrong and should have played Kurt Cousins. Not my teams fault that the Redskins made a personnel mistake.

And the reason why I brag about RW is because he was a 3rd round pick while RG3 and Andrew Luck were 1st rounders! RW was the underdog ALL YEAR while the Seahawks coaching staff got scolded by the national media (Mike & Mike, ESPN were hugely critical of this) for taking Irvin (who was 2nd among Rookies in sacks) and Wilson.

I know this is all trivial since we're talking NFL, but Seattle gets the worst coverage of any other sports teams, minus Cleveland and Canadian teams.

Don't forget: Warner gave you guys a Super Bowl Title and the Seahawks have zero. We are hungry for a title and this year is probably a great opportunity to reach the SB.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

Yeah

Ain't that the truth. It too is a popularity contest.

Ron brought the Liberty movement together, Rand is expanding the crap out of it! :)

I'm just glad

Russell Wilson did NOT make the Madden 13 (or 14, whatever it is now) cover. That curse is REAL ;)

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

Wow!

I used to love sports, but got pretty sick of athletes being treated like heroes (especially when so many of them live such self-absorbed lives) but for once, I'll concede an athlete can be heroic.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Plus

All Sports in America are controlled.

So

Most of you notice corruption in our own Government but no one sees it in the NFL?

I also like Tim Thomas

He refused to meet Obama, and he is a Ron Paul supporter.

Thomas is without a doubt

My favorite athlete.

Wow never thought he was in

Wow never thought he was in the know. Opinion changed on him.

I figured it out ct and fixed it for you.

I didn't check on it before I replied to you, but in looking into it further -

What you originally posted was all there, but there was a "<" symbol in the definition that was copy pasted, that was being accepted as html code that was causing the entire last half of your post not to show.

AHA!

Thanks so much for figuring it out and fixing it. Sweet!

ct, it must have been something you did

or that happened when composing or editing it.

There are only two revisions on this post, and you made both of them about a minute apart from each other. (one is the original posting) Nothing shows as being done by anyone else.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the Reply

I'm not sure. I copied and pasted things out of the article a few times to build the post. Is there some type of limit on pasting or formatting that is not allowed?

Certain forms of

actual html code cannot be used, (which generally would not be in any typical copy/pasted article excerpt), but other than that, no, you can revise a post as many times as you need to, or copy paste whatever excerpt you choose to.

Usually the only time a mod would shorten your post, would be if it included the full text of some article from another website. That would be a potential copyright infringement issue, which it doesn't appear you did, and it would show to me if that happened and a mod shortened it. So, with that, it appears we have a mystery. lol
