Dale Hansen Hates America


Guest post by Drew Rellim

You may find this surprising, but I hate to write about politics. Discuss it? Yes. Give my opinion and let people know what I believe and why? Sure. But I do not like discussing and opining on things that are tough to talk about. I write for a college sports blog because it is an escape from how hard life can be for everyone. During the fall, I can have the roughest week in the world, but I look forward to Saturdays where I can take the hour drive to my college town and catch up with all friends. Black and White, Democrat and Republican, Christian or agnostic, these people are my friends and fellow alums and we all bleed the same school colors. I also have always kept my blog politics and religion-free because despite my deeply held convictions and beliefs, I want my blog to be a place of unity and not divisiveness.

However, I am deviating from that today because it is time that someone responds to a person on the left who race-baits, mocks Christian morality, and uses his time as a sportscaster to pontificate in a self righteous manner to his viewers who he looks down upon, and that man is Dale Hansen. He never lets a tragedy pass without trying to pass on some great faux wisdom from his liberal worldview. He openly mocks and attacks the President (something he would NEVER have had the courage to do in with the previous President), and honestly believes that the people who pay to listen to him cover sports give a plug nickel's worth of care about what he thinks in the social and political scene.

10 Essential Components of Effective Immigration Reform

A few days ago, I published the first part of my article discussing immigration reform, “Enough With The Outrage – Fix Immigration!”. Hopefully you already read it, but if not, maybe go check it out!

So what is the answer to our immigration problem? What kind of solution would address the issues at hand, without being entirely partisan (even though we all know that democrats will vote against anything that doesn’t give them every single thing they want)?

Well, while the rest of you idiots were freaking out about President Trump maybe using a naughty word to describe another country, I’ve taken the liberty of finding the solution for you. You’re welcome.

Enough With The Outrage – Fix Immigration!

As the “OMG he called 3rd world countries shitholes!” debacle rages on, I can’t help but feel like we are wasting valuable time that could be better used to negotiate an immigration deal. Or I don’t know...maybe even figure out how to prevent a government shutdown next week? But alas, that is not how we do things these days. If there’s anything negative to say about Trump, that’s what everyone is going to focus on. But hey, in case you outraged degenerates stop to take a breath and consider getting back to things that actually matter, I figured I’d take a moment to discuss what I see as the solution to our immigration problem.

President Trump (damn I LOVE saying that!) has been preaching the need for a merit-based immigration system ever since he was a candidate. And I think if liberals weren’t so focused on opposing him at every turn, they just might see the potential benefits it could have.

Was Jeff Sessions The Right Choice?

"Jeff Sessions" (CC BY-SA 2.0) by Gage Skidmore

When President Trump chose Jeff Sessions as his Attorney General, I thought he had made a relatively strong choice. Admittedly, part of the reason I liked him, however, was just because of how much Democrats and the media absolutely detested him. In fact, their outrage and autistic screeching over his nomination, was nothing short of delectable for a Trump supporter like me.

He seemed solid on immigration issues and other parts of Trump’s agenda. In fact, aside from his stance on legalizing marijuana, I agreed with him on almost all issues. He was relatively passive, in a very “un-Trump” sort of way. But my assumption was that Trump wouldn’t have chosen him if he didn’t have the balls it would take to do the job.

I admit it - I think I might have been wrong.
