Noted liar, and fake Black guy Shaun King is back

Still blowing his own horn, and likely lying, AGAIN

Great news for the felon-infested NFL: some of the America-hating lowlifes who have been driving away fans may purge themselves from the league.

Activist and Intercept columnist Shaun King, claims that he’s spoken to “several NFL stars” who have told him that they’re “considering sitting out the season until the de facto ban on Eric Reid and Colin Kaepernick is removed.”

The report also claimed that the star players intended to “get 25% of the players to sit out with them.”

Surely if these overpaid sociopaths refuse to take the field over a washed-up quarterback not being signed, this will void their contracts and the league can show them the door. Then the NFL can begin the arduous task of repairing its sullied reputation. Advisable next steps would be pulling the plug on its social and racial justice committee and nixing the $89 million targeted to promoting black power moonbattery.

But wait — the source was Shaun King, the same dubiously black accused hate hoaxerswindler, and plagiarist who just last week told us that a woman arrested for drunk driving had been raped and kidnapped by the police, after which bodycam footage revealed that police had done nothing inappropriate. Never mind.

I would compare King to a sack of camel dung, but, camel dung can actually act as fertilizer, King, he pretty much just lies and race pimps

NFL protests, a sane look

Mike McDaniel tells us all we really need to know about the minority of NFL players who like to pretend they are victims

But once again, the noble players and their enablers are in the news—Fox News:

A decision from NFL owners requiring players to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” if they are on the field when the anthem is played triggered intense reaction from supporters and opponents Wednesday, as one owner revealed that he abstained from the vote.

Commissioner Roger Goodell said the change was approved unanimously at the league’s spring meeting in Atlanta. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told Fox News in an email that San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York was the only abstention.

‘I want to work with my team to make sure everything we do is about promoting the right types of social justice reform and getting to a better America,” said York, who added that he planned to meet with his players to discuss the new policy.

Well of course, because what’s the primary reason for being of professional football if it’s not “getting to a better America,” and “promoting the right types of social justice reform”?  I’m sure that’s why fans attend games and watch the NFL on TV:

Announcer:  “There’s the snap, and quarterback Cornelius Selfabsorbed drops back, and throws a long bomb to wide receiver number 29, Galufus Washington, and HE DROPS IT!  HE HAD IT IN HIS HANDS, BUT JUST STOPPED AND DROPPED IT!  WHAT COULD HE BE THINKING?!

Second Announcer:  “Wait, he’s kneeling…yes, HE’S KNEELING ON THE FIELD TO PROTEST MICRO AGGRESSIONS!  The referees are indicating a virtue signal, wait…yes, IT’S A MICRO AGGRESSION VIRTUE SIGNAL! That’s going to be a ten-yard gain for the San Francisco Only Our Lives Matters!  AMAZING!  WHAT A BLOW AGAINST NORMALALITY!

Announcer:  Isn’t that “normalcy”?

Second Announcer:  Shhh!  Don’t grammarsplain.

Color Man:WHOOOEEEE! That’s the tenth virtue signal for Washington already this season.  He’s already gained 120 social justice yards, and I believe that means he’s leading the league!

Announcer:  And listen to that crowd!  They love social justice here in San Francisco!

Second Announcer:  That’s right!  These San Francisco fans are the greatest in the Strive Against White Privilege and Oppression League!

Funny stuff, and important because the outrageously outrageous outrage over this decision needs to be exposed for what it is. Another case of fake victimhood. These players are working, working their job on game day. I cannot protest at work, nor can anyone else. That is not an infringement on the right to free speech. These players can advocate for, or against anything they like when they are not at work! Surely there will be plenty of social justice media types to give them air time.

The fact is simple. The NFL is a business. Its customers, the fans, largely do not like seeing the protests during the anthem. It is disrespectful to many, and any message behind that protest is forgotten because you are showing disrespect for the flag. So, they, to a large extent showed their displeasure with their wallets last season. The NFL, listened, and wants its employees, the players to cease their publicity stunts during the anthem so their business does not decline further. Oh, by the way, if the NFL as a business suffers, so will the players. DUH!

My best advice to the players, or at least the small minority that are insistent on parroting the social justice diatribes, is stand respectfully, play the game, and do whatever you wish after the game, when you are NOT on the job. Heck you might even find that more people listen when you are not spitting in their faces. And yes, that is how they feel when you kneel during the anthem.

Oh, wait, one more thing. Before you go all SJW, you might want to look at the facts, not leftist talking points, but all the facts. Those facts will be of great help in deciding if you really think your cause is justified.

And there goes the NFL, down the path to destruction

Are NFL owners really stupid enough to ignore the declining ratings and attendance? Do they not get that social justice is not what fans want? Apparently not.

he NFL has established a player-owner committee focusing on social and racial justice initiatives that Commissioner Roger Goodell cautions is just a start, with lots of work ahead.

Goodell credited “unprecedented dialogue” for helping players and owners get to the point of Tuesday’s announcement. He said the committee will focus on education, economic development, community and police relations and the criminal justice system.

“We feel that we are going to make significant progress as we have more meetings, as we get more focused on our efforts, it’s going to actually come to life,” Goodell said. “And frankly, we will get better as the days go by.”

The league also said Tuesday it is beginning a “Let’s Listen Together” campaign that includes digital content and commercials highlighting player-led work on equality issues. That platform will include social media support and letters from players and owners.

Owners on the committee are Arizona’s Michael Bidwill, Atlanta’s Arthur Blank, Jacksonville’s Shahid Khan, Cleveland’s Jimmy Haslam and Miami’s Stephen Ross. Current players Chris Long, Josh Norman, and Kelvin Beachum, Pro Football Hall of Famer Aeneas Williams and former player Anquan Boldin are on the committee.

Amazing that such stupidity exists, it really is. Or maybe it is cowardice? Maybe the fear of being accused of RAAAAACISM is so strong it makes billionaires quake in their boots? 

NFL protests are based on lies

From the time Colin Kaepernick first “took a knee” during the national anthem last season the left have hailed him as heroic, and praised him for raising awareness, and protesting inequality, and police brutality. The media, of course has been eager to carry these narratives because the media loves nothing more than to point out American racism. Narratives are loved by the left. Narratives require no facts, all they need is an emotional story that is repeated, and repeated, even after it has been proven false. The media are their willing and eager partners in spreading the propaganda.

Sure the narrative about police “hunting down” Black men is false. If it held any shred of validity, the body count in America’s inner cities would be massive. The Michael Brown “Hands up Don’t Shoot” narrative? It has been completely discredited by forensic evidence, physical evidence, autopsies, and eye witnesses. The Trayvon Martin narrative, that he was stalked and killed for being Black is as fallacious as when it was spun into existence by the likes of Al Sharpton. Martin viciously attacked a much smaller man, George Zimmerman, and paid the price for that action. Police are not getting away with murdering Black Americans. The fact is most police shootings are justified, and police are tried and convicted  when their actions are not justified.

The most annoying thing about all this is the media could actually report facts, and lay these false narratives to rest. Of course, that is not their objective. Rather than simply doing what they are trained to do, they choose to prop up the narratives. And their dereliction of duty is helping groups like Black Lives Matter gain credibility as a genuine group fighting for equality, when in fact BLM is a radical far-left group dedictaed to Marxist values that are unrecognizable to the vast majority of Americans. These BLM “principles” are not hard to find, just visit their websitejust visit their website

We are committed to disrupting the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, and especially “our” children to the degree that mothers, parents and children are comfortable.

Of course nothing is more destructive to children and neighborhoods than the fdestruction of families. And no group has been harder hit than Blacks. The out of wedlock birthrate is around 75% among Blacks. The resulting abscence of fathers is devastating to the children. This is a major factor in the disproportionate rate of violence crime committed by young Black men. Gangs are a scourge in inner cities. Most of the victims of their violence? Black people. Children need mothers AND fathers. Yet all the media focuses on is the BLM narratives. 

The NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem say they are protetsing inequality, and police brutality, which are certainly worth protesting. But what are the facts about crime, police shootings? These NFL players are accepting the lefts narratives as facts. But are they? The New York Post took a look at some of these narratives

Yet the Black Lives Matter movement is based on a lie. The idea that the United States is experiencing an epidemic of racially driven police shootings is false — and dangerously so.

The facts are these: Last year, the police shot 990 people, the vast majority armed or violently resisting arrest, according to the Washington Post’s database of fatal police shootings. Whites made up 49.9 percent of those victims, blacks 26 percent. That proportion of black victims is lower than what the black violent crime rate would predict.

Blacks constituted 62 percent of all robbery defendants in America’s 75 largest counties in 2009, 57 percent of all murder defendants and 45 percent of all assault defendants, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, even though blacks comprise only 15 percent of the population in those counties.

In New York City, where blacks make up 23 percent of the city’s population, blacks commit three-quarters of all shootings and 70 percent of all robberies, according to victims and witnesses in their reports to the NYPD. Whites, by contrast, commit less than 2 percent of all shootings and 4 percent of all robberies, though they are nearly 34 percent of the city’s population.

In Chicago, 80 percent of all known murder suspects in 2015 were black, as were 80 percent of all known nonfatal shooting suspects, though they’re a little less than a third of the population. Whites made up 0.9 percent of known murder suspects in Chicago in 2015 and 1.4 percent of known nonfatal shooting suspects, though they are about a third of the city’s residents.

Gang shootings occur almost exclusively in minority areas. Police use of force is most likely in confrontations with violent and resisting criminals, and those confrontations happen disproportionately in minority communities.

Yet, these players are not aware of these facts. They watch CNN, or CBS News and hear the narratives go unchallenged. So they believe that BLM is a legitimate group seeking actual justice rather than the radical goals they actually seek. Yes the players ought to do some research for themselves. But they believe the spin and the narratives, and are drawn to act. Odd it is that by “linking arms” to “show unity” the players are helping to cause exactly what the left desires. More division.

We are told that the kneeling during the national anthem is done to maximize conversation. We are told that players would have no way of conveying their message if they did no kneel or link arms during the anthem. This is asinine at best. These players would have no problem creating conversations if they formed a group and raised their concerns off the fileld. Are we to believe the media would not turn out to cover any press conferences such a group would hold? How much swampland wouldyou like me to buy again? 

The truth is this. The people pushing these protests want them done during the anthem because the very last thing they seek is awareness. This is being pushed by the left, and no one does divisive things like leftists. Anyone who can rub two brain cells together knows that showing any disrespect during the anthem is going to piss a lot of people off. that, of course is the point. Leftist rhetoric gains the most ground when division and anger are highest. If the concerns these players had any true legitimacy they would avoid showing any dierespect for our flag, soldiers, or the nation as a whole. Again, division and anger is not an unforeseen byproduct of these protests, rather division and anger are the intended result.

So what is the long term goal here? Well, Americans love sports. they love great athletes. Athletes are heralded here. If the left can get athletes to embrace and spread their narratives, then they have a great avenue to further these narratives don’t they? Sit down to watch the news and you will hear the narratives propped up. Watch the game and get the narratives, wash rinse, repeat. This is just another front in the war on everything American. Our history, values, principles, culture, borders, language, everything, including our sports and athletes are in the cross hairs of the left.

So, what can we do? Well we must fight the narratives, AKA lies with truth. In short, we must never take a knee. We must stand, stand for American values, principles, and history. Our voice is louder than the left’s. Our truths can silence their lies. But, again, only if we stand!

Well, I guess I can do without the NFL

I, like many refuse to watch players and coaches spit in the face of our country in support of false narratives crafted by leftist groups like Black Lives Matter Via Daily Caller

A large swath of players and coaches for the Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars linked arms and kneeled for the U.S. national anthem during a matchup in London, England on Sunday.

The Ravens-Jaguars game took place at Wembley Arena in London, and while the players either knelt or locked arms during The Star Spangled Banner, they all stood for the British anthem, God Save The Queen.

Then there is this

These players/coaches/owners are choosing to show disrespect for our flag and the greatest nation on earth. If they want to bash Trump, that is on them. But who they are really bashing is their fans. See how far the NFL gets without the fans

ESPN should stop soft-selling what Colin Kaepernick did and continues to do

If you listen to ESPN, you might get the distinct impression that former San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick is no more than an activist who is being punished by the NFL owners for raising the issues of race, and police brutality in America. In fact, it seems that most ESPN commentators are convinced that Colin Kaepernick is being blackballed by the entire NFL. Some continue to paint Kaepernick’s continued unemployment, it was Kaepernick, by the way, who opted out of his contract in San Francisco. He is unemployed because he chose to be. He chose to test the free agent market rather than stay with the 49ers. Some players are even saying that owners who do not sign Kaepernick are cowards.

While there is no doubt that some owners are fearful of the media saturation, and negative feedback from fans if they sign Kaepernick, it is unfair to label them cowards. In fact, some owners who are not, and will not sign the QB might have a more simple reason. It just might be that Kaepernick is hated for his actions. Yes actions. No, despite the narrative, Kaepernick did not simply choose not to stand for the national anthem. That was simply the first act in his transition into social justice warrior. In fact, this is how Kaepernick described his decision to snub the flag.

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick told NFL Media in an exclusive interview after the game. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.” All because he kneeled during the national anthem last year. 

It is one thing to kneel during the anthem to raise awareness or begin a conversation, as Kaepernick’s defenders claim he was doing. It is quite another to smear law enforcement in such an irresponsible and egregious fashion. But, it seems Kaepernick is all about the narrative.

The problem with this narrative, of course is that it is not true. America is the most tolerant and racially diverse nation on earth. Obviously Kaepernick has been over indulging in the social justice Kool-Aid. His statement goes along with the Black Lives Matter mantra that police are “hunting down” young Black men. Again, such a claim is completely false and reckless.  But BLM is a group deeply rooted in Marxist philosophy. You should really go read their mission statements. If you are anti-family, anti police, anti-individualism, you will love these nuggets of delusion.

Kaepernick it should be noted began to embrace the social justice warrior act after he began dating Nessa Diab, a devoted Leftist who is a full-blown SJW

NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s conversion to social activism coincided with his romancing of a hip hop DJ of Egyptian descent who has frequently spoken about perceived racial injustices and “Islamaphobia” in the U.S.

Kaepernick reportedly began dating Hot 97 DJ and MTV host Nessa Diab in July 2015. A few months later, his social media posts began to reflect the Black Lives Matter and Muslim activism of Diab.

“History!” Kaepernick wrote on Instagram Oct. 15, when he marked 50 years since the Black Panther Party was founded.

But 31 of his last 42 posts have strong social justice connotations, often featuring quotes from radical Nation of Islam leader Malcolm X, Black Panthers founder Huey Newton and cop killer Assata Shakur. During a Sunday news conference about the flag flap, Kaepernick dressed in a black hat with a large, white “X” and a T-shirt that featured photos of Cuban despot Fidel Castro and Malcolm X.

You can peruse Kaepernick’s Instagram here . You can see the transition for yourself. Of course, what ESPN will not tell you are the other things Kaepernick has done to alienate himself, well except for Will Cain, who actually looks at all the offensive stands Kaepernick has taken

Cain is correct here. Kaepernick did not kneel and then explain his positions in a calm rational way. He instead stayed in the hole he was digging and went right back to shovelling and in the process exposed himself as just another ignorant sjw trying to play a victim by bashing the country that gives him liberty. Liberty he clearly does not grasp, or appreciate. Instead he donned a Castro T-shirt and started to rant about government oppression? Talk about the irony of ironic ironies

The August evening the nation first noticed Colin Kaepernick taking a knee during the playing of the national anthem at an NFL game, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback held a postgame news conference, as is typical league policy. At that news conference Kaepernick wore a T-shirt emblazoned with photos from a 1960 meeting between Malcolm X and Fidel Castro.

So after his first notable protest against what last week he called the “systematic oppression” of minorities in the United States, and saying he wants “freedom for all people,” Colin Kaepernick put on a T-shirt that featured a supportive image of one of the 20th century’s most enduring oppressors.

This absurd contradiction between what Kaepernick said and does was only a distant annoyance to me because, although I was born into Cuba’s imprisonment, I don’t often write about Kaepernick or his team. This wasn’t my fight.

Yes,, the writer actually KNOWS about the brutality and evil of Communism. He, unlike Kaepernick KNOWS about oppression

Some facts:

Cuba for more than five decades under the Castros has stifled practically any and all dissent. According to Human Rights Watch, “Cuban citizens have been systematically deprived of their fundamental rights to free expression, privacy, association, assembly, movement, and due process of law. Tactics for enforcing political conformity have included police warnings, surveillance, short-term detentions, house arrests, travel restrictions, criminal prosecutions, and politically motivated dismissals from employment.”

Now go to Google images of the Ladies In White protesting on Cuba’s streets. Kaepernick, the poster child for protest among NFL players, should do this. He would see images of women — white, black, mothers, daughters, sisters — systematically violated in one form or another by Castro’s thugs.

They are harassed, spat upon, pushed and even bloodied simply because they are fighting to do in Cuba what Kaepernick does on an NFL sideline without fear or physical repercussion — just before he wears that Castro shirt to his postgame presser.

And yet, Kaepernick wore a shirt honoring Castro? What type of social justice is that? What is Kaepernick advocating exactly? Does he even know? Or is playing the victim to addictive for him to embrace facts?  Armando Salguero pressed Kaepernick in a teleconference

So I ask Kaepernick how he can protest oppression then ignorantly don a T-shirt featuring an oppressor?

After first denying he wore a Castro T-shirt at all, Kaepernick finally told us all why he loves him some Castro

And that’s exactly the moment Kaepernick shows how lost he truly is. Because in the next breath, Kaepernick, born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, explains to me, the guy born in Havana, how great Castro really is.

“One thing Fidel Castro did do is they have the highest literacy rate because they invest more in their education system than they do in their prison system, which we do not do here even though we’re fully capable of doing that,” Kaepernick said.

Is this real life?

First, Cuba does not have the highest literacy rate. Second, don’t be surprised if the same people who report Cuba’s admittedly high literacy rate are related to those who report its election results — the ones in which the Castros get 100 percent of the votes.

Third, could it be Cuba doesn’t have to invest a lot in its prison system because, you know, dungeons and firing squads (ElParedon) are not too expensive to maintain?

You can go read the whole piece here Kaepernick exposed himself as another dimwitted useful idiot who swallows the brainwashing the Left excels in. America bad! Castro good! America bad! America racist! And so on. Gee why would an NFL owner not want this sparkling gem of ignorance on their team? Hmmm

Then there are the other vile things poor victimized Colin has done. Things like wearing sock depicting police as pigs. Kaepernick, who is woke, explained himself, and spat on law enforcement once again

Kaepernick released a statement Thursday on his Instagram account explaining why he wore the socks:

“I wore these socks, in the past, because the rogue cops that are allowed to hold positions in police departments, not only put the community in danger, but also put the cops that have the right intentions in danger by creating an environment of tension and mistrust. I have two uncles and friends who are police officers and work to protect and serve ALL people. So before these socks, which were worn before I took my public stance, are used to distract from the real issues, I wanted to address this immediately.”

Sounds like one of those “some of my best friends are…” defenses to me. Again, kaepernick threw all police under his Social Justice Warrior Victim Bus. But, he did not stop there did he?  Nope!

And NFL owners might not want this loudmouth on their team? How racist of them! How dare they not want this agitator in their locker room? I would bet most coaches, and players also would rather punch Kaepernick in the mouth than have him on their team. Of course if they were to do such a thing, or even express such sentiment, the media would go after them. Yes, the same media that has basically white washed Kaepernick’s verbal idiocies.

Sorry, but Kaepernick has made his own bed, and continues to wallow in it frankly. He has the talent to play, no doubt. He was a fun player to watch. I used to enjoy his on the field deeds, and, if I owned an NFL team, I would have signed him had he stopped his ignorant diatribes after the anthem protest. But now? Hell would freeze over numerous times before I would sign a player that spews such ignorant and despicable things. Kaepernick is not the victim of hate, he is a purveyor of hate! Maybe the Castros will take him in. Maybe they can put him in charge of their “social justice” for dissidents program. Heck, maybe Kaepernick can even explain to the Cubans in prison for daring to question their government what a real victim he is?
