Forward, the Tolerance Brigade! We will not tolerate your intolerance!
That’s the message former NFL coach Tony Dungy is receiving after daring to say that he wouldn’t’ve leapt at the chance to get openly gay NFL draftee Michael Sam on his team.
From CBS Sports’ Will Brinson:
Had Super Bowl-winning coach, NBC analyst and noted conservative Tony Dungy been running the Rams, he “wouldn’t have taken” Sam. Why? “Things will happen” apparently.
“I wouldn’t have taken him,” Dungy told the Tampa Bay Tribune. “Not because I don’t believe Michael Sam should have a chance to play, but I wouldn’t want to deal with all of it.
“It’s not going to be totally smooth … things will happen.”
What Dungy said seems straightforward enough, but the tolerance mob will always find a way to get it twisted. They’re ready to see Dungy shipped off for “educational training”.
No, sir. Shame on you.
Fortunately, not everyone has completely lost it:
In that case, sucks for the NFL.
