Dem Sen. Dick Durbin Declares War On Youth Football: Says It “glorifies a culture of violent competitiveness.”


This speaks volumes about how Democrats view the role of government.:  Senator Dick Durbin wants the Esquire Network’s reality show, “Friday Night Tykes,” off the air, citing concerns about “violent competitiveness” and “head injuries.”

Talk about cradle-to-grave nannyism.

“I call on you to immediately end this shameful, dangerous display on your network” the Illinois Democrat wrote. “With all we know about the risks of concussions in youth sports today, it is unconscionable to televise and celebrate the conduct of a league that directly endangers the health of children.”

…Durbin said concussions in youth sports are a “growing problem” and added the show “glorifies a culture of violent competitiveness.”

I haven’t seen the show. For all I know, it could be abominable, just like most reality TV shows these days. But should Durbin be using his position as a Senator to get it cancelled?
