And before you can say that’s got to be faked…

No idea where this is going, but Kirby’s got to be thanking his lucky stars it didn’t surface six months ago.

***************************************************************************

UPDATE:  Oy.

I guess that ends the Justin Fields snark.

***************************************************************************

UPDATE #2:  Ugh.

“Naw my boy,” Georgia defensive back Divaad Wilson tweeted in response to Fromm’s apology. “You should’ve just kept your thoughts to yourself.”

“This is showing everybody’s TRUE side,” former Georgia wide receiver Terry Godwin tweeted. “Even from a guy like Drew Brees and Georgia very own Jake Fromm. I’ve lost all respect for both of these people. #blm.”

I wonder if Kirby will have anything to say about this.

                I know what my experience is and it is based on facts not some feel good thought.

                Thirty eight years ago I purchased some acreage in North Fulton county and built ma home. I also built a small and SAFE 100 yard shooting range. I enjoyed shooting for a number of years (almost 20)then I was slowly surrounded by million dollar homes. My new neighbors complained about the noise so I was forced to stop using my SAFE range. I now have to drive for an hour each way if I want to shoot. A suppressor would likely solve the problem however (and this is where Jake is correct about elite’s) at the time it took 8 – 12 months to go through the process and the government requires purchasing a “tax stamp” of $200 for each suppressor.

                Most people that are against suppressors are completely clueless – they don’t make guns silent like the movies depict. They typically reduce the report by about 30 dbs. I put these uneducated folks in the same category as the anti gun group – clueless. Some of my rifles are deadly “black assault rifles” that the politicians and ignorant want to confiscate. Some are WW1 & WW11 bolt action relics – they also look evil to some.

                I’ll gladly discuss anything and everything about guns and suppressors but only if you get educated on the facts. And yes I am smart when it comes to guns and suppressors – something you are actually dumb about but you know we shouldn’t be allowed to own either.

              Just so long as thugs can’t shoot people undetected because of suppressors.

              Thats what’s important. We just don’t have rational, race-based regulations in this country.

                You sure do a lot of weekday posting on here. Maybe you should consider working instead of spewing bullshit on internet blogs for a living. Most jobs pay better.

                Anywho, my point was this since you clearly missed it. Ear plugs and head phones are designed for ear protection while target shooting (i.e. not shooting live animals in the wilderness. This usually occurs at gun ranges or sporting clay facilities where several rounds can be fired in quick succession which can be detrimental to hearing). You use all senses when hunting. Hearing is just as important as seeing. Ear plugs and headphones aren’t very conducive to that.

                Derek, have you ever shot a pistol or rifle equipped with a suppressor? Do you really think anyone can shoot people undetected because of a suppressor? When you fire a gun with a suppressor, it doesn’t make a soft pfffttt, like on TV. Get a 2 x 4 and a hammer. Go outside and hit the 2 x 4 as hard as you can with the hammer. That is what a suppressed gun sounds like.

                For what it’s worth Derek I’m not a hunter. Got hunting out of my system about 50 years ago.

                But since you feel no one needs a suppressor I offer this. I’ll assume you have a smartphone and use it frequently and most likely use the texting feature. So how essential is it that you be allowed to text? Do you know how many folks die every year from texting while driving – almost 3,000 which is probably 3,000 times the number of people killed with suppressed weapons. But I doubt you care about that since you are intellectually superior to the rubs that enjoy sport shooting.

                How about we get congress to pass a law that requires a background check that at best would take a year (shear numbers) before your phone would have the texting mode activated. Then compound that with having to buy a “tax stamp” (say $200) in addition to the background check. How about they require a device that completely disables your phone if moving more than 5 MPH but if you have some extra cash you can get the “tax stamp” in as little as 4 months for an additional $200. Of course if you have more than one phone each one requires the same “tax stamp” and every time you get a new phone you have to go through the process again.

      It’s not the point. Satire is racism.

Or you have to advocate for heavy gun restrictions in large cities so that, instead of protecting themselves, minorities will have to rely on the elites in government to take care of them.

              The most pressing concern we should all have when dealing with issues of race should be proper word usage.

              When this was called racist:

              my sole concern was that the word “racist” was being grossly misused.

              Like you, I had no other concerns.

                  You should follow your own advice and have YOUR words mean something, instead of being a libelous useless tub of goo who never has a point. You’re so ready to label everyone with whom you disagree as a racist, bigot, homophobe, misogynist, whatever, that these words literally have no meaning. You actually convinced yourself I said “racist” when I didn’t. If you actually thought before you spoke and not rush to label someone something so hateful because you run out of arguments, we could’ve had a discussion.

                  If you just would’ve asked, “What have YOU ever said to a girl that was shocking to try to make a joke?” we could’ve had that conversation. Instead you’re more interested in labeling me a racist. Given that, you can still go fuck yourself.

                  Well, when I was in my early 20’s and still in the Marine Corps, texting wasn’t a thing. If you were hitting on a girl, it was face to face, so things like context clues were much easier to pick up on. Also, when I was in my early 20’s and still in the Marine Corps, I wasn’t looking for a wife. Just a good time.

                  So you’d talk to the girl. What do you like? What do I like? Oh, this band is great. Flirt. Tell jokes. After an hour or so, depending on how the night is going, you tell a ribald joke that has a few different punchlines depending on how she takes it. “So, how often do you masturbate?”

                  You’d know pretty quick what kind of girl you have then. Some would be shocked and then laugh. Some would be shocked and get mad. Some laugh right away and answer. Some wouldn’t answer and turn it back on you.

                  For the ones that’d answer, the punchline would be something like, “That’s not nearly enough. I’d be happy to help!”

                  For the ones that turn the answer back on you, there’s a few different punchlines, “Not enough” would mostly get a big laugh. Or “I have carpal tunnel. I could use some help,” could go either way.

                  Whatever the response, there’s an answer you can give. The object is to get a reaction, even if it’s a slap. Because you’re a 20 year old moron with a 20 year old moron brain that’s not fully developed, whose hormones still drive everything you do with a need to get laid, so you get to the point.

                  People like me understand that, Derek. I don’t condone what Fromm said, just as I’m sure there’s a bunch of people living in today’s awful world who wouldn’t condone that attempt to shock and titillate when there are actual dumbasses who think Baby It’s Cold Outside is a date rape song. Fromm may very well be racist, I don’t know what’s in his heart. I do know what’s in his mind, though. Chemical imbalances and an immature prefrontal cortex that makes it hard for him to think about anything else than getting laid.

                  So I sympathize with him without condoning what he said, because we’ve all said stupid shit in our lives. Maybe not racist stupid shit, but stupid shit nonetheless. The point is, in a normal world not gone made driven by ridiculous people like you, he could make his mistake and be allowed to learn from it to grow to be a better person. But the one thing that doesn’t exist in your ideological Neo Progressive secular religion is the capacity for mercy and forgiveness. So instead he must burn as a heretic and forever be cast out into the void. Because assholes demand it.

                  Without that, we have tribalism, which is literally playing out as tribal warfare right now. And in tribal warfare, there are no winners. What happens is you burn down the very house that provides for you, which is what’s happening on the streets right now.

                  Exactly.

                  It’s scientifically proven that adult males have moron brain until about the age of 25. They literally have a diminished capacity for rational thought and impulse control. IT’S SCIENCE!!!

                  But for the people that always seem to care so much about what they say is science (climate change! covid-19!), they have zero mercy or forgiveness in their hearts for young men who makes stupid mistakes with their words.

                  There are few things in this world that should be unforgivable if true contrition is offered, especially when it comes down to words and not actions. He didn’t sexually assault the girl. He tried to say something shocking to a girl who is an anti-gun nutter to get a reaction. Was what he said racist. Without context it sure is, even with context it probably still is. Does that make him racist? I don’t know. Does that make him an idiot? Yep.

                  Far longer than necessary. I just don’t think all dumb or obnoxious statements are equal. If fromm was adopting a temporary persona for such a purpose, he should have addressed and explained the substance of what was being said. After all he’d have been knowingly acting wrongly but with a purpose right? As he avoided the substance, my strong impression is that he was acting as a typical entitled white man who believes intuitively that equal rules for all is less than optimal. The troubling thing about the texts isn’t that it shows racial bias (most have fallen short on that measure from time to time), but that it embraces the concept of different rules for different people based solely on race that even the most fervent racists deny exist while the burdened doubt there is a sincere desire for equality, but only for a state of culpable deniability. The texts in and if themselves don’t make one a racist or a white supremacist, but it does suggest being part of the underlying problem we face in this country.

                  You asked, and as you’re prone to taking what people say and twisting them to reflect your preferred narrative, I went with long form instead of long story short.

                  And while I disagree pretty much with a lot of your answer, I understand where you’re coming from even then. I think it’s misplaced and prone to emotion over reality, but you’re not alone in this.

                  See Derek, is this not better? We disagree, but we can exchange those disagreements without the need for the kind of ad hominem labels that don’t apply.

          A lot I have read in the past week would point to that being an incorrect assumption. To quote an article from the Atlantic from last year “Today, racist means not only burning a cross on someone’s lawn or even telling someone to go home, but also what feels unpleasant to someone of a race—as in what I as a person of that race don’t like. It has gone from being mean to someone to, also, what feels mean to me.”

          Huntin, it can also refer to people who support policies (from governments and organizations) that have a disproportionately negative impact on minorities. You can also do or say things that are racist without having an explicit hatred for that person’s skin color. You don’t have to hate a person because of their skin to be complicit in institutionalized racism. Racism isn’t so much a category that you are in or not. It’s a set of beliefs, words, and actions that discriminate against someone–even if they aren’t explicit.

      Read the story from yesterday about the Clemson assistant coach who overheard a player using the n-word on the practice field. To try to discourage that, he repeated the word to the player using it.

      His intent didn’t matter. He committed the unforgivable sin by saying the worst of all the words.

      So if you want to be sure that you’re cool, I suggest getting on your knees and apologizing for your white privilege whenever you encounter minorities.

  27. I’m not going to assume Fromm is racist based on one dumb text to a girl. It’s disappointing, sure, but so is Terry Godwin publicly stating that he’s lost all respect for Fromm and Drew Brees. Brees, the same guy who did a hell of a lot for the majority black communities after Katrina. Fromm was his close teammate but he’s all of a sudden had this epiphany?

    It’s times like these when I feel more people should have served in the military where you’re forced to be closely involved with people from many backgrounds. Where you’re forced to find a way to work out differences and not just sit on opposite sides of the fucking tracks. White, black, Asian, Hispanic..I consider some to be family and we often said all kinds of dumb shit to one another and had our differences.

    Maybe Fromm is racist, and that would be very disappointing, but Godwin publicly calling out a former teammate without talking to him really points out the other major issue- poor communication.

      First, Godwin is under no obligation to talk to Fromm before he speaks publicly. They are no longer teammates. Perhaps they were never friends off the field. Godwin was on campus 2 years ahead of Fromm. They had different majors. It wouldn’t be unusual that they had different circles and they only had football in common. What Godwin basically said is that he lost respect for Fromm because what Terry did know and think about Fromm didn’t exactly correlate with what Fromm was saying privately.

      As far as Drew Brees goes, two of Brees’s high profile teammates called him out too. Michael Thomas catches a lot of those Drew Brees thrown passes and Michael Jenkins who has been his teammate twice and has discussed social justice/BLM/NFL protests with Brees for four years.

      Brees did do a lot for New Orleans that doesn’t mean he gets a pass for stances on other issues. Is he a good guy that did something bad once or twice? Sean Penn did a lot for New Orleans too. Is he a bad guy who did something good once or twice?

      The whole focus of the ESPN two part 30 for 30 about Lance Armstrong is he a good guy that did something bad or a bad guy who did something good? After watching it, it didn’t change my mind about what I had thought about him from back in the early 90’s. I was friends with some folks who knew him or about him because they were on the fringes of pro triathlon, cycling, the Olympic movement etc. They all said he was a bad guy back even when he had survived cancer and started Livestrong. While that organization did so much for cancer patients and research, Armstrong was basically destroying other lives to fuel his obsession for winning and perpetuating this myth about his miraculous recovery etc.
