Fumbling Hypocrites

On Monday night, the Green Bay Packers lost to the Seattle Seahawks on a rather controversial call made by the scab referees filling in while the unionized refs are out due to a labor dispute.

For kicks and giggles, I took a look at what some of the most extreme anti-union right wing nut jobs are saying about the game.

Fred Dooley was so upset he posted about it twice, putting the blame specifically on the replacement refs and questioning the integrity of the game.

Freedom Eden so far has the lead with three posts complaining about the game, blaming the replacement refs and even cheering on the players exercising free speech. Needless to say, she doesn't show the same support for the teachers or other workers in the state.

And I would be remiss if I did not point out crazy, old Dad29 that somehow ties the game in with Roe v Wade.

But my favorite so far is by the lefty and venerable James Rowen, who points out the anti-union Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's hypocrisy, going so far as even calling the scabs scabs.

Isn't it amazing how one doesn't appreciate what they got until it's gone?

What makes it all the more shameful is the fact that the right wingers are incapable and/or unwilling to learn from the lesson they were given.


  1. Thanks Capper.

    Bob McGinn, the dean of sports writers called them a "scab crew," in his front-page piece.


    Congrats to the JS editor who let that go.

  2. One more example of what happens when the billionaires mess with a established,accepted, and productive system. What will sconnie grown Paul Ryan say? Will this "wrong ruling" affect the other game of Presidential Election? Will one of those Democratic advertisements be able to link a Republican vote for their billionaire to the NFL billionaire's ineptitude?

  3. Here's my diatribe about the scab ref's if you care to read it.
