Bruins Goalie Tim Thomas Skips Team Visit to White House

Tim Thomas

My sentiments exactly.

Let me start up front by saying I watch very little hockey. However, I now have a new favorite player: Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas. The Stanley Cup champion Bruins visited the White House yesterday, but Thomas was not among them. Why? Read his statement below:

I believe the Federal government has grown out of control, threatening the Rights, Liberties, and Property of the People.

This is being done at the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial level. This is in direct opposition to the Constitution and the Founding Fathers vision for the Federal government.

Because I believe this, today I exercised my right as a Free Citizen, and did not visit the White House. This was not about politics or party, as in my opinion both parties are responsible for the situation we are in as a country. This was about a choice I had to make as an INDIVIDUAL.

This is the only public statement I will be making on this topic. TT

Save, and a beauty!

I could not agree more, Tim Thomas, and there are millions of us in this country that feel the same way. What struck me odd was the blizzard of negative comments from the media and the public. Poltico used what was, in my mind, a very misleading headline insinuating Tim Thomas specifically snubbed President Obama.

ESPN Boston┬ácolumnist Joe MacDonald writes that Tim Thomas “put himself above the team” and chose an “inappropriate time and venue” to espouse his political beliefs. The sentiments are echoed on any number of sports blogs, with more people seeming to criticize Tim Thomas than support him. Not all the coverage is negative, however: here is an article from Yahoo Sports supporting Tim Thomas.

Lulz

To his detractors I have this to say: Tim Thomas is a hero. I don’t use that term lightly, especially as it relates to sports figures.┬áThis country is on a teflon-coated slide into tyranny, and most of our dumbed-down, anti-depressant quaffing, reality-TV show watching populace seem ambivalent at best, tendingtoward ignorance in the majority of cases. He had to see this negative publicity coming, and yet he stood up for what he believes in. Tim Thomas has now brought the issues of liberty to the forefront, reaching millions of people who in all likelihood had not thought of it before.

This American and fellow lover of liberty thanks you, Tim Thomas. You have gained more fans than you have lost, I assure you.
