Break the Matrix - Boycott the Gladitorial Distractions
Alex Jones joins with fellow patriot Mark Dice in protesting America’s favorite sports ritual – the Super Bowl. Sure, the game is a good contest between two top rivals, but football isn’t what really matters. While America has fallen asleep in front of the television and allowed so many distractions and frivolous issues to take over its thoughts, our country has been looted financially, our military has been used to carry out ever-expanding wars, our President and Congress have ignored the Constitution and our people have stopped their participation in the process. Until we wake up and fight back against the damage being wielded politically, we have no business getting caught up in gladiatorial distractions. The heat of the contest has become a substitute for our real manhood and our real humanity. Our tribal instincts to protect the community and drive away its enemies has been overtaken by the thrill of cheering, shouting, painting our faces and wearing the colors of a team.
Political activist Mark Dice makes broadcast TV a second time this week in Los Angeles in a bid to convince people – some people at least – to boycott the SuperBowl and focus instead our excitement, anger and energy on the political looting of our country. Instead of a competition with no real impact on our lives, people should educate themselves on the things that really matter. Mark Dice calls the SuperBowl, and TV in general, the opiate of the masses. That is perhaps too much to swallow for the anchors.
