If you’re the type of person who boasts “gender pronouns” in your social media profiles and trust big-government bureaucrats to run your life, chances are high you are among the enraged zealots who’ve been throwing a hissy fit this weekend.
For it was early this weekend on Friday that thousands of young men and women gathered tightly at the Virginia Tech’s Lane Stadium for the Hokies’ opening game and jumped in unison as the classic Metallica song “Enter Sandman” was played.

Virginia Tech was not alone, as footage from the University of Wisconsin and Texas A&M showed tens of thousands of pumped fans having a great time.

Playing “Enter Sandman” is, of course, part of Virginia Tech Tradition.
“For every home game, the Hokies come out of the tunnel and onto the field to Metallica’s ‘Enter Sandman’ playing and, folks, it is epic,” according to SB Nation.
The tradition began in 2000, and by no means were Virginia Tech students about to skip it again for the second year in a row. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, last year the majority of fans had to watch the game from home.
They still played “Enter Sandman,” but it just wasn’t the same.
Fast-forwarding back to the present, the footage from this year’s game provoked an outcry of anger, exasperation and abject insanity from “gender pronoun”-boasting COVID zealots — in addition to “journalists” and MSNBC talking heads, of course — who’d prefer that Americans forever remain locked in a state of fear.
Nearly 2,000 Americans died yesterday from COVID-19.
How is this nation cheering football when it hasn’t even mourned for the 647,000 dead, and counting. https://t.co/3xNJ32DGb9

If these people were in charge, the stadium at Virginia Tech would have probably looked the same this year as it looked last year.
If you’re enjoying college football today, know that if it were up to the Left no team would be playing this fall.

FYI, Virginia Tech requires all students to be vaccinated unless they qualify for a medical exemption.
“Last week, the University of Virginia said it had dropped at least 238 students, including 49 who were enrolled in fall courses, for violating its vaccine order,” NBC News reported last Wednesday.
“Spokesperson Brian Coy [said] that prior to being disenrolled, the students had received ‘multiple reminders via email, text, phone calls, calls to parents that they were out of compliance.'”
VT students are 98% vax’d. They had to provide proof to maintain class registrations. Faculty/staff are ~80%. Masks req’d everywhere except outdoors & in dorm rooms. Masks required in indoor spaces at Lane Stadium.

Yet to hear some ghoulish COVID zealots tell it, all of the students who attended Friday’s game are destined for hospitalization and death.
Wait ’til you see the enormous crowds lining the intensive care unit hallways in a weeks time.

What % of those people will be gone in 2 weeks. Add to it the people not there but infected by the people there and multiply exponentially.

The funeral industry is pretty excited as well.

Many of these people will be flooding ICU’s in a matter of weeks, but sure looks fun!😑

Mmhmm. Bet your bottom dollar there are multiple people in that crowd who are going to die from Covid. And even more who are going to pass it on to others who are also going to die from Covid. And the pandemic continues apace.

These people appear to live in a fantasy world of their own making.
They are, as the critics below point out, “the pandemic faithful” who’ve come to center their whole lives around this virus and are now hellbent on imposing their own delusional paranoia onto others. It’s as if, instead of killing them physically, the virus has killed them mentally and spiritually.
But though they may be dead inside, the rest of the world continues to move, and the “giant middle finger” that Virginia Tech and its students just gave ’em proves it.
I’m really appreciating how much college football must be bumming out the pandemic faithful. It has to be legitimately eye-opening to them, how little influence they actually have. It’s just in their faces, in bright colors and with a marching band. Sad.

College football is giving the covid fearmongers a giant middle finger.
God bless America.
