Oh yeah I’m going to say it. All you conservative folks who wanted to take the country back, and wave the Don’t Tread On Me flags, guess what.  You have someone to cheer for. Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter. Recently I watched Monday Night Raw and the “angle” had them both doing their version of the State of the Union Address. Actually it wasn’t real like Mitt Romney wanted to win the White House. Yeah I said it. However recently the WWE got “the dis” from the conservative media all because of the characters.

Previously, the WWE has been doing this for years. The late Classie Freddie Blassie aligning himself with the Iron Sheik. Or during 80’s there was Nikolai Volkoff and The Iron Sheik against any American wrestler based on their viewpoints. In the 90’s Attitude Era: The Hart Foundation was more than just Bret Hart and Jim Neidhart. It also had Owen Hart and Davey Boy Smith taking their international  stuff against Stone Cold Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels, DX, the American Fanbase,  in a Anti-American fashion. They all lost by the way towards the end of 1997. And as for the black side of the WWE, Remember the Nation of Domination? Farrooq, D-Lo Brown, The Godfather, The Rock, (yes The Rock was a member young bucks) All black folks with the Red/Black/Green plus using the late Malcolm X’s phrase of By Any Means Necessary with the fists in the air. And yes there were two white guys rapping going to the ring as PG-13.  Even Sgt. Slaughter had his Anti-American run as WWE Champion, and most folks in 1991 wanted to kill him! Not a joke. Guys like the late Test, William Regal, Christian all had this Un-American thing with the U.S. Flags upside down in a distress signal. Even Lance Storm chimed in as a Proud Canadian vs America. Over in WCW, besides the nWo, there was a time when “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan once dawned “Canadian Colors” against the USA. Even for the Women: Trish Stratus used her Anti-American thing as in a comment of USA****holes. O yeah she said it. And never forget Muhammad Hassan. Which by the way the guy that portrayed the antagonist  is from Detroit Michigan! Hello. And here is the thing, most Wrestling fans in America liked this dude! Especially his character vs the Undertaker. Reference that. Also never forget the Billy and Chuck angle, and most thought they were getting married. Which also made the Gay and Lesbian folks upset, but knowing the WWE’s history of Storylines and Characters, they defended that angle and the rest is history.  Speaking of the Undertaker, remember the Attitude Era in which he used his symbol like a cross to tie up Stone Cold Steve Austin and it was hoisted in the air towards the end of a Monday Night Raw Show? Which was on TV by the way during the Attitude Era. Plus his persona was more dark and grim like a Modern Day Grim Reaper. How do I remember this: I watched it, recorded it and store it up for future references. Back in the day the Attitude Era was cracking with VCR’s.

Ladies and Gentlemen: all of that was an act. A mere act. I know for a fact with it mixed with Wrestling, you know it’s Entertainment. So I think the Conservative Media needs to check itself in a hotel and chill! Now word is, the WWE is inviting Glenn Beck to Monday Night Raw in reaction to this Jack Swagger/Zeb Colter Tea Party Angle. Based on their views of Jobs, Immigration, and the preverbal “whats wrong with America thing.” Really? And I’ll bet all the Breitbart fans, Fox News, Tea Party, and others who begged to take their country back in a foolish manner, well this Monday night is for you. Whether you like WWE or Pro Wrestling or not, it has been making waves from a entertainment standpoint. And just remember, it’s just a story-line! Still the WWE will still make money. My DVR will still be on stat, and the reality: folks like them will still be going and arguing over NOTHING!
