Apparently Brennaman, Cincinnati Reds announcer, was caught on an open microphone making a "homophobic' slur.
Mr. Brennaman has groveled and paid obeisance to the Soviet God of the Leftist State, but right now, he's out. He says his word doesn't reflect him. My guess is, it does. Like so many high profile people whose wealth and success depends on being in line with the powers that be, he could never say what he really thinks. This is modern America after all.
Nothing new in the 21st Century. No country is ever free in the sense of 'no rules, just right' or 'if it feels good, it is good.' Liberalism promised this. Perhaps we were stupid enough to believe it. But the Left is now making it clear that when it comes to freedom, it never mans able to do and say anything you want. In fact, as you watch the Left morph, you begin to wonder if freedom is even a thing anymore.
Remember, in a totalitarian state, no amount of past fealty to the State will do. The minute you digress from obedience, the second you cease to be useful, then it's into the truck, and off to the glue factory you go.
