Woke Outrage Mob Comes for Harrison Butker, but It's What the City of KC Did That Takes the Cake

As RedState previously reported, Kansas City Chiefs star kicker, Harrison Butker, gave the commencement address Saturday at Benedictine College in which he talked about traditional values from a Catholic perspective and tore into Joe Biden for suggesting you can be Catholic and pro-abortion at the same time.


Butker, who is staunchly pro-life, also had a thing or two to say to the audience of Catholic school graduates about the pervasiveness of woke culture in society, including the de-emphasis on masculinity and the push to mainstream radical LGBTQ views on issues like transgenderism. Butker also told the women in the audience that though he was sure they would be successful in their careers he bet most of them were looking forward to being wives and mothers even more.

Not surprisingly, the leftist Outrage Mob has sprung into action, with a petition being put up at Change.org demanding the Kansas City Chiefs fire Butker for sharing the allegedly "dehumanizing" Catholic message with Catholic students at a Catholic college:


As of this writing, it has about 103,000 signatures.

Also as of this writing, while the Chiefs' organization has yet to respond to the controversy, the NFL has - by distancing themselves from his remarks and virtue signaling about how inclusive they supposedly are:

'Harrison Butker gave a speech in his personal capacity. His views are not those of the NFL as an organization. The NFL is steadfast in our commitment to inclusion, which only makes our league stronger,' the league's chief diversity and inclusion officer, Jonathan Beane, said. 

Perhaps the worst part about the backlash to Butker's speech was how the official Kansas City Twitter account reacted to it... by posting information about where the kicker and his family allegedly live. The tweet has since been deleted, but as the saying goes, the Internet is forever:

The city's mayor, Quinton Lucas, noted afterward that the "message was clearly inappropriate for a public account. The City has correctly apologized for the error, will review account access, and ensure nothing like it is shared in the future from public channels."


This response to the outcry was a sobering but timely reminder about the priorities of some folks in this country (language warning):

'Nuff said.
