#SuperBowl2020 Halftime Show …. Naysayers …. “💫 Can’t Please Everyone ALL the Time 💫 …. “!!

SUPERBOWL HALFTIME SHOW

As I’ve said before, I’m not a football fan. I don’t watch the game; usually not even the ads. When I do watch, it’s for the halftime show.

That’s what I did yesterday.

I must also say that I was quite partial to this one because of the powerful Latinas who were featured. The extra talent (Bad Bunny, J Balvin and Emme) was icing on the cake.

When J-Lo displayed her feathered ‘coat’ and proudly showed the Puerto Rican flag, I felt chills!

As you probably know, many details of their performance didn’t sit well with some of the ‘real’ Americans, conservative ‘christians’ and the like. For me the ‘last straw’ was wondering why J-Lo was displaying the Cuban flag!!

I was going to let the issue go without any kind of response but, recently a friend has been telling me that, silence is complicity so here goes …

IF THE SHOE FITS, WEAR IT!

If it doesn’t, just read and go on!

🤨 … to ignorant, uneducated, racist, white crackers, (some inbred and toothless), Drumpf supporters who decry the presence of the ‘Cuban’ flag (NEWS FLASH: it wasn’t. It was the Puerto Rican flag), in your beloved, macho, ‘patriotic’, testosterone-filled ritual which was overshadowed by incredibly talented, Spanish-speaking (bilingual) Latin performers, bringing cultural treasures, celebrating diversity, sisterhood and feminism: it would serve you better if you attempt to get educated, know other flags in addition to the American one and learn a second language (if you have the intelligence – which I doubt), you deplorable dorks! … 🤨

(did I leave anything out?)

Puerto Rico’s flag is not Cuban, Puerto Ricans are ‘born in the USA,’ and kids are still in cages

The Superbowl is an American ritual, and there are some people who tune in, not for the football, but for the commercials or the half-time show.

Count me in, as one of the latter.

The half time show, proved to be a venue for more ignorant responses from MAGAs and xenophobes to be displayed to the world.

I was curious what the public reaction would be to a show featuring two Latina superstars, Shakira, and Jennifer Lopez, who is known as J.Lo. So while watching the show, I kept one eye peeled on twitter. I was not disappointed.

“The amount of Americans watching the Super Bowl and mistaking the Puerto Rican flag for a Cuban flag and claiming that speaking/singing in Spanish (especially in Miami!) is somehow political is hilarious. So many dumbass, racist Americans.”

#HalftimeShow

I’m seeing a lot of angry whites confusing the Puerto Rican flag for the Cuban Flag. Y’all sound dumb as hell. Not only is Puerto Rico part of America, America has no official language so who cares what language that shit was sung in.

Rocking the Puerto Rican flag while singing “Born in the USA.” A good reminder for those who sometimes need it, that Puerto Rico is part of the United States.

  1. That needed to be said, Dr. Horty, and you did it very well. Some days I am so ashamed to be a white man. I enjoyed the half-time show. All that energy on the field wore me out just sitting in my recliner and watching. Everything has become so political and biased in this country. Hey, maybe next year they could have Randy Rainbow and a drag revue on center field – Rue Paul maybe? Give all those obnoxious, prudish, wannabe jocks something to bitch about…..or maybe dream about later in bed. 😁
