Last week, the powers that be laid the groundwork in what is most clearly an effort to defend their hallowed hall in Cooperstown from the future attack of the man of the man who is rewriting the homerun record.
The deviousness and the institutional depth of this operation are staggering. The ability to organize the voters is cause for concern of the highest magnitude. This demonstration exemplifies the fact that we, as original humans, are powerless against the control exuded over our daily lives by the powers that be through their sharpest and most concentrated weapon; the media.
Less than a decade ago, Mark McGwire was hailed as the savior of baseball. His powerful shoulders, massive thighs and rippling arms generated towering home runs of a frequency never before witnessed. The man was a mutant: and not simply because of the gene which caused his red hair and freckled skin. Worshipped from coast to coast; the white devil relished McGwire's narrow defeat of the dark skinned Sammy Sosa in the quest for the home run record. Not only had the musclebound McGwire set the record, but he had laid waste to a descendant of Shabazz along the way. A double victory and cause for celebration for snowflakes everywhere.
And now, in what should be McGwire's time to look back and celebrate his astounding career with an awaiting enshrinement in Cooperstown, McGwire finds out first hand that the very people that exalted in his achievements and rejoiced in his feats just a few years ago have plunged their dagger like pens deep into his broad, v-tapered back. The very people that authored the Paul Bunyon legend that is Mark McGwire, now, in what the clear mind can only see as a formulated plan to block the future entry of the coming home run king, have painstakingly measured the assassination of McGwire and his legend. Et tu, Brute?
The destruction of McGwire is based on innuendo and suspicion. The fact that he never failed a drug test or that testing wasn't even conducted during his career mean little. In the past, these very same voters have turned their back on documented cheating (see Gaylord Perry). Yet now, these moral lightweights decide that THEY shall defend the sanctity of the game? When less than a decade ago they were privy to the rumors and certainly suspected McGwire of using steroids, but chose instead to portray him as a hero and stifle the rumors.
Barring injury or incarceration (which is certainly an example of the depth and desperation of this attack), Barry Bonds will take the homerun record this year. Securing his own place as both the greatest home run hitter for a season and a career. A thought which tortures the soul of those behind this power play.
Unfortunately for McGwire, he is caught in between. The "voters" need to set a precedent NOW in order to be able to shun Bonds in the future. And McGwire is that precedent.
Be warned: The hatred and jealousy for the original human runs deep in some circles. The evilishness of the white devil is so profound, that at times, he is willing to destroy himself (or his own) to hold us down. By the will of our God, the devil will eventually destroy himself.
Besides, baseball is a billion dollar entertainment business rooted in marketing and ad revenue. What sanctity is there to defend in that? Get over yourselves, voters.
