Jason Whitlock: “Aaron Judge should be the biggest story in sports but it’s not, and it’s an indication of how much we have destroyed America and destroyed American culture. Who the Jets play this weekend will be a bigger deal than what Aaron Judge just did hitting home run number 62. There are two culprits for ruining this moment. One, America in its instant gratification culture that we’ve established. That’s why Major League Baseball looked the other way when all of its players were abusing steroids. We wanted the instant gratification of all the home runs from Mark McGwire, to Sammy Sosa, to Barry Bonds because we wanted to fix baseball instantly so everybody looked the other way as guys roided up and knocked home runs every which way. If we hadn’t of been an instant gratification society, what Aaron Judge did would be one of the biggest moments in sports, and the biggest moment in baseball since Hank Aaron surprised Babe Ruth. But it’s NOT a big deal. It’s a ‘nice’ deal, it’s a nice little story, but it’s not what it should be. Point number two is how we ruined the Aaron Judge story. This guy was bi-racial, he was given up for adoption, and he was adopted by two White parents. This should be an amazing, feel-good story about second chances in America and how people rally around each other. For babies, little kids given up for adoption, not wanted by their parents… The Judge family brings this kid into their home and raises one of the greatest athletes and now greatest baseball players of all time. We should be celebrating this story, celebrating America, and celebrating the Judge family that bring kids like Aaron Judge into their home and raises them as if they were their own kids, but we destroyed that too because everything now in America has some kind of negative racial connotation. There was another White family in California who took Colin Kaepernick in, raised him up, he becomes a Super Bowl-contending quarterback, but we’ve so racialized things and turned everything so negative that Colin Kaepernick put out a Netflix movie taking a dump on the very people who saved him, and breathed life into him. THAT’S where we are in America. We can’t celebrate or appreciate the good things, the Christian things that go on here in America. We’ve destroyed it. Aaron Judge should be at the top of everybody’s conversation today but he won’t be. We’re going to move on and talk football because we have destroyed baseball, and we’ve destroyed American culture. We can’t even feel good about things we should feel awesome about. Aaron Judge is an underdog story of the ages and an example of America’s grace, mercy, and love for each other, and love for humanity, but we can’t celebrate it. We can’t use Aaron Judge to further some narrative that America is some evil and racist place so we’re going to ignore it, and we let a bunch of players cheat their way to the home run records so it’s not as special as it should be. That’s on us, WE did that. We can wag our fingers at the left, but we allowed the left to do this. We allowed Major League Baseball to look the other way. It’s on all of us. We spoiled the Aaron Judge story. It should be one of the most incredible stories in sports but it’s not.” (Full Segment Above)
Watch Jason Whitlock of ‘Fearless’ explain why he thinks Aaron Judge’s chase to hit 62 home runs turned out to largely be an afterthought in the grand scheme, as Whitlock says he believes it became a ‘nice’ story but one that was vastly underappreciated because of toxic woke facets of modern American culture.
Check out the segment above as Whitlock details why Judge’s diluted chase for history was an example of society destroying American culture, and destroying baseball.
