Unbear-a-ball

The weather last weekend was not very good here in Lagos, so I tuned in for some of the football games. I used to watch a lot of college football, but that has waned quite a bit over the last few years. When I consume college football, I’m usually doing something else, so I half listen and pay attention when I hear some excitement. These days, you can rewind the action if you miss something, so this sort of consumption is a lot easier than in the old days. You can watch the highlights in real time.

One thing you quickly learn when you cut the cord, which I did years ago, is that regular TV watching habituates you to the degeneracy. I’m not sure if you get used to it or your mind just learns to filter out the offensive garbage. Take a few weeks off, come back to it and you’re appalled at what you see. It’s not just the degeneracy, which is a big part of it, but the stupidity. Television has always been aimed at the 90-IQ crowd and that jumps out to you when you are away from it for a while.

Something similar seems to be true with televised sports. Once you take a break from watching these shows, the warts become obvious. Last weekend I could not help but notice the volume of commercials in these broadcasts. I was working on something and every time I looked up to see what was happening in the game, it was a commercial and usually for something alien to me. At some point I looked at some other games and sure enough, they were all in a commercial break.

Of course, the commercials are atrocious. This is where you see the propaganda effort behind all of this. Most likely, the typical viewer of college football is a white middle-aged male, living outside the Cloud People zones. That means suburban and exurban. That also means the sort of guy who voted for Trump. Yet, they blast ads featuring race-mixers and homosexuals. The products are things this demo is not buying, like AIDS drugs and cloud services. It’s ruling class porn as advertisement.

At some point, I decided to watch until I saw an ad featuring anything resembling normal people doing normal things. I gave up after about thirty minutes. If a space alien tried to understand America based on television, its conclusion would be that we are ruled by frizzy-haired mulatto lesbians and homosexuals. Their main task is keeping the simple-minded, almost retarded, white males under control. The TV ad world is the complete opposite of reality and any possible reality.

As far as the presentation of sports, it is pretty close to unwatchable. The endless commercials are a big problem for a casual viewer. I wanted to watch the Ohio State – Penn State game, but the presentation was so bad it was hard to watch. When it is not commercials for lesbians enjoying their work at Amazon, it is insipid airheads talking constantly while the players wander around between plays. Turning the sound off makes it worse, as you see how little is happening on the field.

It used to be popular with the sporting press to bad mouth baseball for being too slow and boring. The real reason they are told to bash baseball is the game has not been Africanized. It is not a running and jumping sport. There are no opportunities for the blacks to draw attention to themselves with the usual antics. Putting that aside, the slow pace of baseball makes sense in the context of the game. The slow pace of modern football is just a way to squeeze in more agit-prop.

The ruination of televised football is one of those examples that point to a deliberate, well thought-out war on white people. For a long time, football and baseball were things most whites could share as a cultural item. Despite the color on the field, the audience has remained stubbornly white. It was the thing white people could talk about at the office, without having to fear the PC police. Instead of leaving that as an oasis, the usual suspects seem to have targeted it for degeneration and destruction.

That said, the television ratings for this stuff have held up. There was some decline, but the usual suspects have convinced normie white males to return. The new thing now is the celebration of the black quarterback. There’s nothing that stimulates the normie whites in America more than worshiping blacks. White guilt remains a powerful delivery vehicle for the repulsive propaganda around it. Watch an NFL game and you get why the usual suspects hate white people so much.

That said, there is no way the country survives wholesale cord cutting. Once you are free from this stuff, it is impossible to come back. The old gag about baseball was that if it did not exist, no one would invent it. Something similar is true of TV. If the nation was not already hooked on it, no one would become hooked on it.  It is so trashy and so degenerate; you can’t get past the revulsion long enough to get hooked on it. My rainy weekend experience was just enough to turn it off for good.

That’s why television watching will eventually be mandatory. Orwell got most things wrong about the dystopian future. The one thing he nailed was the video monitors installed in every hope. It may not be as heavy handed as he described, but there is no way the usual suspects allow the public to cut the cord. Without the daily dose of poz, there is no way white people go along with their dispossession. The revolution comes when the televisions go dark for any length of time.

We pulled the plug a while ago, and then after having kids we thought, well what can it hurt a little tv here and there (lazy parenting). Our kids to into addicts always asking for the idiot box, having tantrums when we refused. Then my wife decided one day enough is enough (stay at home mom) and we killed it as well for the kids. They are happier, reading, playing and sometimes being bored – but at 3 and 5 that can just mean go outside and play. For us adults in the house we do a bit of Netflix… Read more »

For myself I didn’t make any big resolution to kill my TV. Since the late 1990s I’ve just slowly watched less and less.

I remember distinctly, waiting for Neil Armstrong to step out onto the Moon, sitting around the new (my family was late-adapters) color television. The doorbell rang.

Well I like to watch the occasional movie on it and there is still some stuff out there that isn’t pozzed that I like to watch. Plus I paid for the TV and I’m not in the habit of breaking my own toys. I’ve found it’s pretty effective to just point out the insanity to people – and then let it all slowly sink in.

What you’re really saying is that blacks should be shamed into acting more white. But they’re not white. They’ll never be white.

It didn’t help when the federal government started subsidizing this behavior in the 1960s. Black women do not require black men to commit before sex and children because it pays more if they leave. If black women had to support their own kids, I suspect it would mitigate the pathology somewhat.

Agreed. The govt is actively pushing all people to degeneracy. But at the end of the day, black men don’t naturally get too involved in the raising of kids. Look at Africa. My point is that whites have to stop trying to remake the world in our image. Let other peoples be what they want.

Of course, we push non-white to act white now because we live around each other and it bothers us when they don’t act like us. But the solution isn’t coercion but separation.

Young blacks today might be more influenced by Whites than the other way around with them adopting aspects of geek culture, skinny jeans, androgyny. Even today’s hip-hop is heavily influenced by alt rock/ indie shit.

It’s remarkably unfair to expect an 85-IQ people to handle financial issues. Let on their own, blacks would create a very simple society that fits their abilities. As Sailer has noted, for our entire society, the right half of the bell curve has abandoned the left half over the past 50 years. Instead creating a world in which both sides can thrive, we’ve made society ever more complicated to take advantage of them.

There’s something to be said for that. As Z has said before, slavery worked for a portion of that population who can’t handle modernity, not that anyone wants the responsibility or baggage that comes with shepherding today’s farm equipment-tier Blacks.

The only “inhumane” aspect of apartheid is leaving less-capable Blacks to the mercies of their own communities. But the alternative is the destruction of Whites along with their rescue-exotics. Not acceptable.

Its not just the liberal social engineering and fantasy. Marketing research proves that Blacks will buy more of product when you have blacks in the commercials. Whereas white consumers don’t care who’s in the commercials. Most Normie Whites have been brought up to have positive feelings about black folks. (Quick, name me the last Movie that had black villain and a white hero). So, there’s that.

Mike,

Cut that cord.

My grandparents use to tell that, in Tennessee at least, Baptist preachers would preach that “where you see the antenna of a TV you see the horns of the Devil”. (this was circa Korean War)

For a long time I thought that was just plain over the top — but around 2001 I came to see TV is Evil. All of it.

“The real reason they are told to bash baseball is the game has not been Africanized. It is not a running and jumping sport. There are no opportunities for the blacks to draw attention to themselves with the usual antics.” Baseball stopped being black in the 1990s, and even then the blacks were adhering to the white baseball player’s ethos of sportsmanship, stoicism, and humility. Usually. What killed my interest in baseball was the influx of Hispanics (and the overt marketing as well). Hispanics, unlike blacks, did not adopt the white ballplayer’s ethos. They turned it into a circus. Even… Read more »

White men invented football, basketball, and baseball.

So Lombardi fought against discrimination, which most of us would have done in those days; the problem is that they are just too stupid to understand that there’s a difference between being allowed to play and prosper, and knowing how not to destroy that which made you a participant and wealthy.

The larger point, though, is that imposed boot-on-the-neck tyranny is rather too easily noticed. The smart Marxists recognized all the lessons-learned from their earlier catastrophes. It’s worth reading up on the Frankfurt School. Like Huxley, they decided it was much more effective to anesthetize the masses through degraded culture, dumbed-down education, and a myriad of opiates for the masses. Huxley’s vision of tyranny was the velvet shackles you’re referencing … it’s a tyranny-trap into which sheeple amble.

Reruns of The Office, especially the early seasons, are surprisingly good. The show lampoons early 2000’s PC culture. It even has a lazy black guy and a woman who is the target of fat jokes.

I too find it difficult to watch football – college or pro. I have to have the remote in my hand and regularly switch to another game during the constant time outs.

I did watch a lot of World Cup rugby and now I’m watching the European League playoffs whenever they are on. (I played back in my younger days) Much more entertaining to watch since there are far fewer timeouts, the action only stops when the ball goes out of bounds or there is a penalty. The players’ uniforms are NASCAR-like advertising billboards, but fewer commercials.

Apropos Z Man’s comments about all the commercial breaks during football games, I had the same experience years ago, but in reverse. In the seventies my dad used to a set of NFL tickets about once a year through his office, and we could go. Then he retired. Sometime in the mid/late eighties, my brother and I got a set of tickets to a game, so we went. I was taken aback by all the standing around — for minutes at at time — during the game. Of course, it quickly became apparent that it was all for the commercial… Read more »

If you add up the actual gameplay in an NFL game, it is less than 11 minutes. That means 169 minutes of 1) commercials and 2) analysis of the 11 minutes by former players.

What’s the problem with gun acquisition – when the vast majority of guns acquired by whites never kill anybody? The problem is acquisition of guns by blacks. Because those guns seem to inevitably end up being used in a murder. It’s like that video on jewtube where somebody hands an AK to chimpanzee – you know something bad is going to happen. It’s also historical fact that gun control in this country has largely been driven by the urge to keep guns out of the hands of blacks (because they keep doing bad things with them).

You gotta understand the blacks haven’t had access to proper society (i.e., no parenting) and are economically under privileged (i.e. prefer tax-payer-funded welfare to working) and don’t have access to the same kind of socio-educational advantages that whites have (i.e., prefer smoking blunts, skipping school, drug dealing, dancing, robbing, having sex with multiple partners over learning, developing and bettering themselves to be productive citizens). You gotta understand, hand outstretched, “Now pay me or I’m coming after you evil whites.” (They’re coming after whites anyway.)

You’re both correct.

You are correct that a business is selling what a customer wants.

The potential customers the ads are ostensibly aimed at are a third or fourth level consideration at best.

“For a long time, football and baseball were things most whites could share as a cultural item.” And with non-Whites to a large degree. I used to use muh sportsball as an ice-breaker and bridge with guys of all tribes – and the occasional sports-gurl. The amount of brain-space, time & energy I used to invest in sportsball is embarassing to recall, akin to drug addiction or alcoholism and now that I have some perspective, serving the same purpose. Flashback – sports-bar Sat-Sun, 30-40-somethings wearing kids clothes & shoes, an unbecoming look unless you’re full Am-Black – even Jeets &… Read more »

NBA ratings have collapsed, and were never that large to begin with. NFL tv ratings are supposedly stabilized, but who knows if the ratings are not lied about. A shit-ton of empty seats in the stadiums though. Even with Tivo technology (record-and-skip) the games are unwatchable. They actually stop games to let a commercial happen?! None of this is sports any more, it’s WWE++ I find it strange that suburban white guys still watch this crap though, with all the other entertainment options available. I would watch old games from the 70’s before I would watch this rancid slop. I… Read more »

Same with Rugby. Non-stop action and masculinity.

Me and some Sanchos were watching a bit of rugby in the breakroom. The futbol channel had switched it up.

Repeated cries of “Holy sh*t” and “Mira le! (Watch out!)” were forthcoming. “Didya see that?!”

We were rather intimidated, I must say, by the defiantly undiversified players. Big, tough white boys, they were- and they didn’t stop.

I prefer rugby, less sissy than soccer.

The NBA has decided that China is their future. Something like 40 million Chinese watched the NBA Finals. They really don’t care about USA ratings or local ticket sales. Plus there are 36 million blacks – and they love it.

TV has been a weapon of war since its inception. Maybe by design, maybe by accident. When white flight began in the ’50s TV was there to keep them occupied in their homes as their cities became overrun by blacks. When Whites took flight for the suburbs it was the escapist entertainment and the assurances of fatherly and grandfatherly figures that read the news that all was well; so no one felt the need to do anything except sit in their Archie Bunker chair and grouse. It worked so the floodgates opened. Suburbs remained suburbs and never became villages. Our… Read more »

Television would not have taken off (in quite the manner it did) had it not been for the atomizing effects of surburbia, as you stated. James Howard Kunstler has dedicated his career to explaining how disastrous suburbs are on the psyche, and how they are the antithesis of a community structure. I live in a farm house on a few acres in the middle of nowhere (near Lagos), and it is quite pleasant. Recently developers have been razing what used to be farms and are building mcmansionvilles in their place. These sell for over three quarters of a million, are… Read more »

“Race doesn’t matter too much: white, oriental, Indian, negro…” You are missing the point entirely. This is YOUR country, your land, your culture. There shouldn’t be ANY orientals, Indians, or negroes. None. They are here to mooch off of what YOUR people built. They themselves built nothing here. They have no past here, and thanks to the Jews talking you into accepting them, you now have no future here. Do not accept the presence of mooching “orientals, Indians, negroes…” (one would add Muslims too of course.) They have no business here, none whatsoever. No relation to this country at all:… Read more »
