It seems the politically correct liberals in charge of the NFL are admirers of communism. In Red China, Cambodia, Vietnam and other countries communist tyrants forced citizens into re-education camps to "enlighten" their subjects about the wonderful "benefits" of totalitarianism.
Those brutal examples of communist treachery should be relegated to the dustbin of history. Instead, in the supposedly free country of the United States, re-education camps are used to enlighten our citizens about the evils of racism, homophobia and sexism.

Despite the fact that Oprah's network's last docu-series, "Lindsay" was well-received by many, fans and detractors of Sam feel the show could be a distraction and that his claims of being "all about football" weren't 100 percent genuine.
Michael Sam's reality show will follow the controversial University of Missouri football player as he works hard to get a spot on the St. Louis Rams, who drafted him as the 249th overall pick on May 10. Craig Piligian and director Amy Rice, who worked on "Lindsay" are producing the show, which is currently untitled and will be a six or eight-part series.
"Like every player out there working to make a team right now, my focus is on playing football to the very best of my ability," Sam said in a statement. "I am determined. And if seeing my story helps somebody else accept who they are and to go for their dreams too, that's great. I am thankful to Oprah for her support and excited to work together." more >>
