Tom Brady's Popularity Stems From The 'Latest Wave Of White Rage And White Supremacy' Professor Claims
[NEWSWEEK] New England Patriot quarterback Tom Brady is one of the most accomplished and decorated NFL stars of all time, but Kyle Kusz, an associate professor of kinesiology
The study of the mechanics of body movements. I never heard of it before either.
It’s been around for a while. Both physical therapy and occupational therapy are based on it.
at the University of Rhode Island has a much different take on the 42-year-old.

According to Campus Reform, Kusz does not think Brady's popularity stems from his six Superbowl titles but instead due to white supremacy and white male rage.
...the liberal concept (the science is settled!) that men are knuckle dragging bastards who spend all their time watching football, drinking beer, burping, farting, and thumping their women. This doesn't apply if the men are girls transitioning to boys, or boys transitioning to girls, or either transitioning to sheep...


In Kusz's book, titled Making American White Men Great Again: Tom Brady, Donald Trump
...Perhaps no man has ever had as much fun being president of the US...
, and the Allure of White Male Omnipotence in Post-Obama America, he details his beliefs regarding Brady's fame.

"Quarterback Tom Brady has gained popularity due to the 'latest wave of white rage and white supremacy,'" wrote Kusz.

According to Kusz, this popularity began with the election of former President Barack Obama
I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody...
, parallel to "a disturbing racial reaction among white conservatives in response to the idea that a black man would be [president]."

In his book, Kusz focuses on a 2015 Under Armour commercial in which Brady appeared. The style of the ad "would not seem out of place in Leni Riefenstahl's infamous Nazi propaganda film, Triumph des Willens," Kusz wrote.


"I decided to research Trump and Brady's public performances of their white masculinities and how they connect with broader debates about race and gender politics after a student in one of my classes brought the UnderArmour commercial to my attention, and it piqued my interest," the professor said in an interview with Campus Reform.

Brady's apparent support of Trump began in 2015 when he placed a red Make America Great Again hat in his locker. "I have so many great friends in New England including Tom Brady and Coach Belichick" said Trump at a 2016 rally in New Hampshire, according to the Boston Globe. "How good is Tom? Remember last year, he had the red hats?"

#1 Ed Muybridge betrayed his devotion
To whiteness in studies of motion!
Not one of those studies
Was shot with Black bodies,
Resulting in... er... spacial distortion!

#16 According to Rate My Professor, he is actually a sociology professor, and success in his kinesiology course depends on parroting back his strongly held opinions on race and other progressive shibboleths.

#18 I've never been a fan of Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, Robert Kraft the pervert or any other person of any sort associated with the New England Patriots NFL football team. There have been too many cheating and prostitution scandals and they've beaten up on my Raiders far too often.
