Is Trump's incessant complaining about NFL players and the flag, just virtue signaling ?

Someone on reddit suggested that's what it is, and it seems to me an extremely good use of the term. But what Trump's doing is actually worse. It's all about distracting his base, which he sees as idiots. Idiots that he loves that is.

Trump is harboring a grudge against the NFL because his USFL endeavor back in the day was a colossal flop. In his classic delusion of grandeur, he believed that USFL can not only compete head to head with the NFL, but he was convinced that he can challenge them in the same months that NFL plays their games. Predictably, it did not work out to put in mildly. Like a true narcissist, he felt "slighted" and filed it away in his memory back. His resentment festered and when he was not allowed to buy a stake in Buffalo Bills (went to Pegula instead), his anger only amplified and he felt paranoid that the NFL owner elites are against him and out to get him. The flag and anthem issue simply allowed him to channel his anger, hate and rage under the guise that he is "outraged" at the protests.

Whereas the California Legislature is only doing the Very Important Business of the State, without getting Sidetracked.

It's Free Speech for millionaire employees to kneel for the anthem when on the clock on national TV!

Now, let's make sure we penalize everyday Misgenderers! Hate Speech isn't Protected (nevermind it is).

You seem to believe that the role of The State here, is to intrude on business (NFL here), and demand how they run their business and how they treat their employees, correct?

Under penalty of law, the center is now officially designated a "she", for flaring and posturing for the quarterback.

Hmmm, when did I say that?

Although I do think that ALL corporations and other institutions that receive more than $1000/year from Taxpayers in Funding of any kind should be required to mention "Our Thanks to the Generous Patronage of the Great American Taxpayers of the United States", and recite the Pledge of Allegiance at all Official Meetings of the Board and recorded in the meeting minutes.

Whether that's Bechtel, IBM, University of California, Apple, SUNY, Sports Leagues of all Kinds, the 4-H Club, Lockheed-Martin, GM, the American Red Cross, etc.

Do you know from whom I got the idea?

Trump is a big circus distraction for the reporters and all of us to obsess about while the billionaires on his staff run around as low profile as possible setting up as draconian of a tax-free hegemony, an extraction economy and an entrenched authoritarian rule as possible.

EVERYTHING these freaks strive to do undermines the power and the happiness of working Americans. THEY KNOW THAT, DUHHHH. Doesn't mean they don't think they can't get away with it. These are the people that are the most entitled to get their selfish way who have ever lived and common people are going to put REAL pressure on them to stop them or even slow them down.

So far, I'd say we are doing fair in terms of effort.

Our horizons are nothing like they were in the 1960's even now but this is a frog test and the people are too overworked and off balance to react to the ever increasing heat. Some are landed with investments that are flying high, lucky enough that they can claim the ever increasing heat doesn't even exist, but even they know better, they simply don't have any integrity.

Trump is representing, the NFL will have to hire all White Quarterbacks again, and market Football as wholesome family fun role models, to repair the damage they have done.
