We finally got around to watch Netflix’s Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez and the missus and myself came out with the same question: How come this case did not take the airwaves hostage like O.J. Simpson’s case or Trayvon Martin’s? Yes, we hard of some sport figure with the last name Hernandez was in some sort of trouble for killing somebody, but truthfully I thought it was a Hispanic baseball player back home in South Americas doing stupid stuff.
Imagine out surprise when it is a first line NFL player for the ultra hated New England Patriots with a $40 million deal, who happened to be gay and ends up committing suicide in his cell.
It is obvious that the NFL and the Patriots wanted as little do do as possible and as little attention on Hernandez and I bet they exercised as much influence as they could do. But then, there is the other group of political influencers: The LGQBTIEIEO group.
The Gay Principle states that Gay People are nice, good looking and sexy they do not engage in crime, evil stuff or risky behavior. They will claim Leonardo Da Vinci or Michelangelo were gay but draw serious amnesia if you ask them about Brown Shirts’ Leader Ernst Röhm or the rumor that Goering batted for bothe teams. And if you bring that up, you are a redneck with the chains to drag gay men to death in the back of your pick up truck.
So yes, I understand why Aaron Hernandez had some profile with his case, but not the one usually reserved for celebrities behaving that badly. He was inconvenient.
