Cancel Him!

Today’s victim is a gentleman named Seth Jahn who is guilty as sin. Of telling the truth. Jahn is a former military man and paralympian serving on the US Soccer Athlete’s council until he was kicked off today.

Here is his full statement regarding US Soccer voting to repeal their requirement that their players stand for the National Anthem (that story gets its own post tomorrow) in a vote taken over the weekend.

“I’m sure I’m going to ruffle some feathers with what I’m about to say, especially given the athletes council that I’m on, but given the evolution of our quote unquote, progressive culture where everything offends everybody, those willing to take a knee our for anthem don’t care about defending half of our country and when they do so, then I don’t have too much concern in also exercising my First Amendment right. “We’re here to get a different perspective. I also feel compelled to articulate that I’m of mixed race and representative of undoubtedly the most persecuted people in our country’s history, Native-Americans.”

“95% of deaths in black communities come at the hands of another black man.” (Editor note: it’s about 93% according to somewhat dated DOJ data I was able to find).

“I keep hearing how our country was founded on the backs of slaves, even though approximately only 8% of the entire population even owned slaves,” he said. “Every race in the history of mankind has been enslaved by another demographic at some point in time. Blacks have been enslaved. Hispanics have been enslaved. Asians most recently in our country in the freaking 20th century, have been enslaved. Natives have been enslaved. Whites have been enslaved. Shoot, I lived in Africa for 2 1/2 years where I could purchase people, slaves, between the price of $300 and $800 per person, per head depending on their age, health and physicality.”

“Where were the social justice warriors and the news journalists there to bring their ruminations to these these real atrocities? And yet in all of history, only one country has fought to abolish slavery, the United States of America, where nearly 400,000 men died to fight for the abolishment of slavery underneath the same stars and bars that our athletes take a knee for. Their sacrifice is tainted with every knee that touches the ground.”

After being removed, Jahn refused to apologize. He shouldn’t. He issued another statement, which included this:

“The one point I will clarify is that when I stated that a small percentage of people in our country are responsible for the terrors of slavery hundreds of years ago, of which 400,000+ men died to abolish under our nation’s flag, I was in no way minimizing the horrors of slavery, I was simply illuminating the misplaced rage and squandered opportunities to bring to light the tens of millions of people who are enslaved TODAY … more so than any point in history. Persecuted people who I readily put my life on the line to recover from the predacious dregs who prey on them. I welcome any and all respectful debates void of emotion, and will gladly have an open dialogue publicly within (sic) anyone who was brave enough to place unwarranted labels on me from the safety of their mobile device.”

Everything he says is accurate. It’s all true. What part of his comments were “racist?” Here are the “headlines” I saw today “covering” this story:

“Seth Jahn Removed From US Soccer Council After Racist Rant.”

“US Soccer Removes Seth Jahn After Racist Remarks.”

“US Soccer Athlete’s Council Removes Seth Jahn After Racially Charged Speech.”

You see what they’re doing. He doesn’t agree with us. He wants you to actually look at facts. For Christ’s sake he invites you to logically debate and discuss the subject without emotion! Who the hell does he think he is!!??

I think he’s a hero, and he’s sure as hell better off without the US Soccer Athlete’s Council, whatever the hell that is.
