Media Uses Hazing Instead of Rape in Football Locker Room Attacks (tags)

The scandal in Sayreville, NJ involving forced sodomy of young football players is being covered up at home by football fanatic parents and downplayed by the media. The media's term "hazing" is misapplied while ignoring the sexual nature of the crimes included forced sodomy. The cultural cover-up by football fanatics reeks of fascism on the local level while the media's downplay of words indicates nationalist fascism of football's Holy Grail.
