It sadly has now come to this. The corrupt media is featuring individual tales of woe from rank and file members of society to bolster the ongoing drive for the enforced diversity that is crushing free speech in Obamastan. Reports are out about a Minnesota Vikings football fan who claims that he was the victim of “hate speech” during last Sunday’s home game against the Seattle Seahawks. Deepinder Mayell actually had an opinion piece published in the Minneapolis Star Tribune where he was given space to whine about the actions of an uncouth fellow fan – this is political correctness on steroids. I don’t know about anyone else but I have gone to many a pro football game and these things sometimes have a tendency to happen – especially given the amount of alcohol consumption that goes on. However, we have really reached the point of no return as an allegedly “free” society when the grievance of one anonymous face in the crowd can be used to whip up a frenzy by a media with an agenda.

FOX Sports reports on Mr. Mayell’s beef in the story “Vikings fan writes about stadium confrontation, being accused of being refugee”:

Minnesota attorney attending his first NFL game on Sunday said he was targeted by another fan who demanded to know if he was a refugee, and says when he told Vikings stadium security about the confrontation, the staff merely spoke with the man instead of removing him.

Deepinder Mayell, the son of Indian immigrants, is director of the Advocates for Human Rights’ Refugee and Immigrant Program and moved to Minnesota four years ago from New York, where he was born and raised. Writing in the Star Tribune, Mayell described the confrontation this way:

Shortly after he was seated, a man pushed “aside other people and point[ed] his finger in my face, demanding to know if I was a refugee. … Somewhere in his mind, all he saw was a terrorist, based on nothing more than the color of my skin. He was white, and I wasn’t. He didn’t see anything else.”

And in that instant, what Mayell didn’t see or hear also disturbed him.

“What scared me the most was the silence surrounding me. As I looked around, I didn’t know who was an ally or an enemy. In those hushed whispers, I felt like I was alone, unsafe and surrounded. It was the type of silence that emboldens a man to play inquisitor.”

After the man left, Mayell and a friend found a security guard and then spoke to the fan on the concourse. Though Mayell received an apology — “uttered in an adolescent way that demonstrated that he felt entitled to reconciliation as much as he felt entitled to hurl hatred” — the attorney wanted the fan tossed from the stadium “because he made me feel unsafe.”

But the staff let the fan stay after speaking with him.

“Apparently, the Vikings do not think that hate speech and racism are removable offenses,” Mayell wrote.

The Minnesota Vikings organization has been subjected to the shrill howls and calls for blood emanating from the political correctness banshees and is investigating the incident. Some people just won’t be happy until free speech has been banned in America under the pretense of tolerance and then they can just start focusing on thought crime next. I have always said that Orwell was an optimist and it’s crap like this that proves it.
