In this week’s edition of TBR Radio Presents: The Dixie Heritage Hour Dr. Ed interviews Dr. Paul Blair.
In the ’80s Paul was an Oklahoma football legend playing for Oklahoma State University before being drafted by “Da Bears” where he became a key component of their famous and unstoppable “49 defense.”
After five seasons in the NFL Paul became a pastor, and as a pastor he became a political activist, candidate and campaign manager for other candidates. In addition to his political campaigns, he has made national news leading national campaigns against the IRS in opposition to their prohibitions against political speech from the pulpit and again leading an annual “bring your gun to church” or “2nd Amendment Sunday” where he preaches with a visible side-arm and encourages his congregation to bring their weapons with them to church (hundreds do).
Paul has effectively applied the philosophy of Da Bears “49 Zone” to politics. In other words, find the quarterback of the other team and just keep coming at him in overwhelming numbers and from every direction.
Of course, Ed and Paul talk about football, and even some inside baseball, but when the conversation switches to politics it really gets interesting. Paul, who is very politically active, believes that players should be a voice but they also should keep it off the field. He explains why the current situation in the NFL should not even be happening and speaks freely about Colin Kaepernick and the whole mess. He also talks about the open coup against President Trump, and why he believes that Christians and churches have really fumbled the football in the political arena.
Paul recently spoke to the Oklahoma City Council against their proposed LBGT ordinances, and we play the footage. Also discussed is how liberals target some groups and yet ignore other groups doing exactly the same thing. Paul also explains why the “I-4 corridor” is so important and his tremendous efforts to bombard the area for the right in the upcoming mid-terms.
If you are a sports fan, or if you are interested in what’s going on politically right now, either way, you’re gonna want to tune in to this one!
