Rooting For the Yankees is Your Duty

With their victory yesterday over the hated Red Sox, the Yankees have clinched their eighth straight AL East pennant. Now, does my mention of this fact mean that The Dread Pundit Bluto is a Yankees fan?

Of course I'm a Yankees fan. All patriotic, red-blooded Americans are Yankees fans. Rooting for the Yankees is like rooting for America.

Remember, the book The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant by Douglas Wallop (which spawned the blasphemous movie Damn Yankees!) included the incendiary line: "...the devil was a Yankee fan!". Now, as I'm sure you know, our enemies in the Islamist world often refer to America as "The Great Satan".

Coincidence? I think not.

And who do the Yankees represent? Why, New York, The Empire State, of course. And what did the filthy commies and pinkos love to call America? Imperialists!

Another coincidence? You be the judge.

The conclusion is inescapable: if you're not a Yankee fan, you're in league with either Godless communists or murdering terrorists.
