    One does not interrupt the enemy when it is in the midst of cutting its own throat.

    The National Felon League will soon know the meaning of Shylock, “O, my daughter! O, my ducats!”.

    Especially the ducats.

  • Do you think they will be too stupid to understand when the funding dries up?

    • NotYetInACamp

      They will “lawyer up” when the checks stop being deposited.
      Will this be counted as a Soros win, lose, or draw?
      He funded the BLM mess with tens of millions at Ferguson.

      The players will lose. Bigly.
      But the players will be poorly proud that they, uh, hm, uh, “stood up” to “The Man.” They kept it real. How much will that used bling and 2017 Cadillac Escalade bring in? The Porsche? “Honey! Call our Realtor. NOW!” “And the one in Florida, too!”

      But will it honestly dry up?

      We few, we merry few are not a true majority and I fear there are tons of idiots, and Hillary voters (but I repeat myself) who are too stupid to know they are being insulted. Look to Hollyweird, we still have failed to shut that down…

      The ranks of the ignorant masses continue to grow. Proglodyte Universities turn them out in droves…

      We merry few got a lot to do…

    I wonder how they will react to not only the financial losses, but the reduction in easily obtainable sex with sweet young things. Maybe Holy Orders will be in their collective futures. Lives of contemplation, hard work and good works.
    The subjugation of self and desires. Fasting. Contemplation.Obedience to the Rule.
    Celibacy.

      More likely they will revert to type, and become true barbarians. Their concept of “lifestyle” trends more toward drugs, sex, and violence than toward the Order of St. Augustine.

      For an object case, see “Maurice Clarett”.

      This is true of “playahs”, regardless of “race”. It’s a question of the culture in which they have “matured”. It’s one of instant gratification, constant display of aggressiveness (on and off the field), and no consequences for anything they do.

      It is also not one in which intellect is respected or made use of. The ideal is a glaring, growling monster who does whatever he wants, whenever he wants. As the blonde, blue-eyed college junior I once saw on a news broadcast who, in speaking of his football activities, said, “I’m da man, I got da weapon, WUUHH!”

      They are supported by an “industry” which treats them as both gods and philosopher-kings, no matter what they do. And they come to expect such obsequiousness from everyone.

      Suddenly the old Monty Python sketch about the footballer isn’t so funny any more;

      Today, we really do have “playahs” who cannot make complete sentences and commentators who define everything as an existentialist triumph over…something or other.

      This is not the stuff of which dreams are made on. Unless it’s the kind of dream you get after eating anchovy pizza with Rocky Road ice cream just before bedtime.

      So don’t look for any great awakening from this lot. Remember, they think they are already “#woke”. And that is what sanctifies their philosophy.

      Such as it is.

    On an unrelated subject, Hugh M Hefner passed away at age 91… The Hef is no longer obtaining sex from sweet young things on the planet… RIP…

    • Halley

      Perhaps some of us are of an age to have had a young crush on Barbi Benton? The man had good taste. Rest in a piece…

      • JackDeth 72

        Hugh Hefner: Great businessman. Though kind of pervy. RIP.

        There’s Barbi Benton, whom the camera loved far more than any man could.

        My first hard core crush came from across the pond.

        Presently, Lady Diana Rigg. When she played gifted amateur British agent Emma Peel opposite Patrick McNee’s John Steed in the early 1960s import, ‘The Avengers’.

        • Halley

          Oh, I didn’t forget Emma Peel. Who could?

    • Omgosh the Python sketch had me laughing.

  • Jerseygirl Angie

    Quoting Shakespeare ? That’s ” raaaaacist” !

    Also, it’s hilarious – keep it up, Chris !

  • Deplorable B Woodman

    Bravo!! Well “played”, Chris, well “played”.
    Do you think Rev King and Shakespeare would have liked each other?

  • Bill G

    Conscience? If these protestors had any they’d be backing charter schools that spread the word of Dr. King, Dr. Walter Williams, and Dr. Thomas Sowell about how to do something besides live on the state or go into crime.
    But this is the flashy feel-good nothing that lets them tell each other that they’re doing something.
    Soccer, anyone?

    • Doo-Dah, Doo-Dah

      Roger L Simon over at the stable of PJM commentators ALSO suggested (like you) that these overpaid thugs could do something “for the black community” other than snivel and whine. Like, invest in a business in one of the “under-served” communities, and thus provide jobs, motivation, and reward for acting like civilized members of society.

      {{ Oh, wait. That’s denigrated [yoicks! bad word!] as
      “acting white”. Well then, I guess “lifetime on the public teat until the EBT runs out” is what it’s going to be. }}

    The first ads have been pulled from the NFL.

  • Unca Walt

    I’d like to see Budweiser take a walk on them.

  • ExNuke

    Could it have something to do with their “Owners” calling them Coaches instead of Overseers? I guess the threat of a horsehide whip isn’t necessary when they can be whipped with a checkbook.

    “This life, which had been the tomb of his virtue and of his honour, is but a walking shadow; a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”
    Macbeth Act 5 Scene 5

    Sam and Shakespeare…that’s why we love her so…boobehs and brains…..WOW, what a week it’s been, Mr. Muir…I bet you could crank out toons like this for WEEKS….. I think the proper word is “target rich environment”…so much stupidity to mock…so little time.

  • JIMV

    On an unrelated topic…when does the Revolution begin?

    • Chris Muir

      Late October, Irma and thumb have delayed me substantially.:(

    Sadly the play is the only thing, for as Bill G alludes there will be no confession for there is no conscience in this “king”.

    Best we can do is to actively help to kill off by attrition the pawns who fancy themselves gladiators but are in fact just beasts like the Roman rhinoceri…then for their royalty to wither and die for lack of fealty and the sustenance of hatred and division that it craves.

    “In the name of Christ, stop!” And ultimately it will stop, one way or the other.

    • GruntGI

      This is just awesome….yup, those hot tough chicks are truly making girly-men out of those poor oppressed millionaires.

      LOVE IT.

      Sam would approve, no doubt…and look damn good in one of those uniforms.

    Applying the mores of people from one era to people of another for purposes of moral criticism is silly and absurd. It’s like comparing athletes from different eras or musicians of different eras – they happen to be doing similar things, but their environments and development are so different that it’s really apples and oranges.

    • JTC

      “Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”

      You just have to be smart enough to adapt to the context, Erik.

      • JTC

        Or, in Santayana’s original form:

        “Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

        The thing we have failed most to learn from history is that we have failed to learn from it.

        • GruntGI

          +1 to this…that was so freakin’ true…

          “when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual.”

          The exact description of modern American “progressives”

          • Indeed.
