If somebody could please embed for me, but here is the link. https://mobile.twitter.com/mgoblog/status/897134505030545408 I think some of us need to separate the real world and sports world sometimes. I understand the premise as far as the ridiculous moral victory headlines, but to put MSU and what happened on Saturday next to each other is pretty shitty.

Using an extremely sad situation to make a lighthearted comparison can be funny sometimes.  In this case it's not.  Agree its a dumb tweet.  If there's a joke in there somewhere, I don't get it (or else I don't want to get it).  It's not an overreaction - it's just my calmly considered view.

 

And deligitimizing a critique by saying it's a product of an overreaction is a weak ad hominem fallacy.  Won't work.

If someone had tried making the same joke as a board post it would get negged to oblivion.

If an MSU or OSU personality did a similar comparison against us on twitter, this would be a thread about how deplorable those fan bases are.

It was not funny and at the very least, in poor taste. It doesn't matter if some people are OK with it, as clearly there are many who aren't, and dismissing others anger as faux outrage and hyper sensitivity is lazy. The mature thing to do it simply retract and apologize.

Thanks that Harbaugh is standing up to an actual Nazi (Soros) and his extremist group PRO-FA (aka antifa.)  The new world order's ultimate goal is reducing population to 500,000,000.  Sorry I just can't support the murder of 95% of the world's population for their sick "ideal world."

You guys need to read up on the InfoWars story 10 years ago about how the government was builiding concentration camps for us. Weird how that one never turned out.

You guys need to read up on how Hillary Clinton is running a child sex slave operation out of a DC pizza joint. Weird how that story went away too. They're so good at covering up!

InfoWars is the political equivalent of cults that claim the end of the world is nigh every 10 years or so.

A Charlottesville police officer has come forward to express his anger at being told to “stand down” by the city mayor during violent clashes between protestors. He also claims the protests, which pitched “white supremacists” against members of Antifa, were “set up” to further the agenda of the elites.

We [Charlotesville police] were ordered to bring the rival groups together. As soon as they were in contact with each other, we were told to stand down. It was outrageous. We weren’t allowed to arrest anyone without asking the mayor first. We weren’t even allowed to stop the driver as he sped away.

The event was being set up as far back as at least May and it went like clockwork.”

You'd be surprised, how many fuck wits are actually reasonably successful... in financial terms. Life in general? That's another topic. People are fucking STUPID, man. Just drop in to Reddit for a while, and take in the mouth breathing, knuckle dragging hordes. It's incredible.

I gotta say, I get the impetus to want to put a little humor into things, and Brian has tried to explain the joke, but... I don't get it. It's a bad look. And a really non-timely take, given Heather Heyer. Football is not comparable to a domestic terrorist attack that killed someone protesting Nazis.
