Guess what Rashard Mendenhall, you just earned Kook of the Week. You wanted to speak your mind via your twitter account (@r_mendenhall)…and who wouldn’t? So, let’s hear it, I’m sure the Pittsburgh Steelers will be thrilled.
Wait, you wanna hear the side of the psychotic mass murdering terrorist that admitted to being the master mind behind thousands of killings? I will say that the first line from my post when I first heard that Bin Laden was dead read, “It’s such a bizarre feeling to be so happy about somebody getting killed.” I don’t like death…and his death is not what I’m celebrating, I’m celebrating the fact that he can no longer kill others and terrorize nations. To again quote myself, “Regardless of your political beliefs or views…there is one less mass murdering asshole on the planet.” Apparently the Rashard does indeed disagree. Let’s hear what else he has to say…
Oh, so you’re now suggesting that 9/11 was an inside job? Oh!!!! Conspiracy theorists unite! This a good way to get America to rally around you as a professional athlete…especially the families of those killed on 9/11…they must think your views are very enlightening. What else ya got?
There were other tweets, but you get the point. This last tweet is the one that most blogs are going to leave out. Doesn’t really fit the profile for ripping someone to shreds for their idiotic comments. I actually agree with this tweet. However, this tweet, along with most anything in life…needs to be taken into context. In this context, the Rashard is suggesting that President Obama, or America, or somebody in the military… took judgment into their own hands, and we should NOT have killed Osama Bin Laden. That, I disagree with. What he is not considering is that God does indeed work through us… speak through us… giving us strength, focus, and wisdom to do things that maybe we couldn’t do on our own. Maybe, just maybe, this was one of those times. I’m not God, I don’t know… but I do know that the next time you, the Rashard, want to speak your mind… it might be best to stick to reading blocks, picking your running lanes, keeping your knees high, and not fumbling the football. Am I celebrating a murder? No, no I’m not… Am I celebrating a world that has one less mass-murderer on it? Yes, yes I am.
For my esteemed readers that may have missed the brilliance of my headline, I offer you this. Thank you, Billy Madison.
