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
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?
Remember, it is now impossible to parody the Left
Expect nuts and bolts to be “gender neutral soon
A Chicago art professor has resigned, saying a “small cadre of militant LBGT students with an authoritarian agenda” created a “toxic environment” for him.
Michael Bonesteel—a renowned expert on comic books and outsider art who taught popular classes at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) for the past 14 years—explained in an exclusive interview with The Chicago Reader that he resigned after students repeatedly filed complaints accusing him of racism and homophobia because he failed to provide “trigger warnings” before introducing controversial subject matter.
Trigger warnings, yet another crock of BS cooked up by the Left
Citing a “toxic environment” that “feels more like a police state,” Bonesteel alleged that student complaints to administrators resulted in him being told he wasn’t allowed to teach future classes on comic books, causing his teaching-load to be reduced to a level that would have rendered him ineligible for health insurance benefits.
The first complaint, Bonesteel said, arose during a discussion of Henry Darger, a Chicago artist known for depicting representations of young girls with penises in his comic books, whose work Bonesteel has studied extensively.
Bonesteel recounted presenting a theory—which he claims is considered plausible by many scholars—that the shocking images might be related to possible childhood sexual abuse.
According to Bonesteel, a transgender student objected to the discussion, arguing that “there was no proof that Darger was sexually abused, and therefore I was wrong in proposing the theory.”
When Bonesteel defended the theory, he claims that the transgender student filed a complaint with the administration, resulting in Bonesteel needing to meet with a diversity counselor and post an apology on the school’s website.
Oh no, he offended the super duper protected class of trannies. Yes, I know I am supposed to sat “Transgender” but you know what too bad! I also realize I just “triggered” some trannies. Again, too bad!
This fiasco of trigger warnings and safe spaces is a tragedy that is destroying the university frankly. The only way to stop it is to stop coddling these whiners and miscreant totalitarian bastards!
And, once more if that triggers you then too fucking bad!
A Marxist student group at Swarthmore College disbanded itself earlier this year after realizing that its members were too rich and too white to be real commies.
According to screenshots confidentially provided to Campus Reform by an individual with access to the group’s private Facebook page, the demise of the Swarthmore Anti-Capitalist Collective (SACC) came in the wake of a farewell letter from a member who had decided the group could never be an effective proponent of “unproblematized anticapitalist politics” due to its “history of abuse, racism, and even classism.”
Unproblematized anticapitalist politics? What the hell does that even mean? Just think how much good these Marxists could do if they stopped making up words to define their foolish beliefs and started reading about our founders.
The Gay Patriot examines a piece by a naive Millennial who tries to lecture people on the virtues of
political correctness self-censorship. Then proceeds to take Mr. Inclusive to the intellectual woodshed
In an article dripping with condescension, a precious Millennial Snowflake writing for Inc. Magazine is given the space to lecture the bigoted “older generation” on why Millennials — being smarter, more worldly, and more woke than their dottering elders — embrace political correctness.
The purpose of political correctness is to treat all people with the love and respect they deserve. This means calling people by the pronouns they use, and avoiding words and phrases that stereotype and demonize entire groups of people. You can still possess whatever ideology you follow and you can still share your opinion, you’re just being asked to do so in a way that is not hurtful to others.
Go read the whole thing, it is a priceless example of a thinker taking apart the blatherings of an emoter. Here is a sample
Millennial Snowflake: “We’re not censoring your speech, we’re just politely requesting that you use sensitive language.”
Me: “So, I’m still allowed to express any opinion I want as long as I use the PC words.”
MS: “Exactly, now you’re getting it, old man.”
Me: “Can I say that I think mass immigation from underdeveloped countries is bad for our economy and social cohesion.”
MS: “Oh, no. That’s problematic because it’s insensitive and demonizes immigrants.”
Oh New York and their central planning numbskulls, and the idiot New Yorkers who keep voting for them
Wherever there is a need, the free market steps in to fill it — except in New York, where senselessly micromanaging authoritarians won’t even allow pet-sitting:
Health Department rules ban anyone from taking money to care for an animal outside a licensed kennel — and the department has warned a popular pet-sitting app that its users are breaking the law. …
[Chad] Bacon, a former zookeeper and wildlife researcher, signed up for the app to help make ends meet while he was between jobs, but did enough business that he now makes his living from it full-time.
Congrats, bureaucrats. You’ve thrown him out of work. With luck, maybe you can get him on the welfare roll.
The health code bans boarding, feeding and grooming animals for a fee without a kennel license — and says those licenses can’t be issued for private homes. … Fines start at $1,000.
All a sane person can do is shake their heads at such foolishness. What business is it of the government to decide who can, or cannot watch your pet, keep your pet, or feed your pet?
Then there is Canada, Oh Canada!
A City of Toronto work crew was seen in Etobicoke’s Tom Riley Park early Friday morning, removing a staircase that had been erected by maverick local handyman Adi Astl. Construction on new stairs, Mayor John Tory promises, will begin immediately.
Astl, a retired mechanic, says he built the stairs for a mere $550 after several neighbours tumbled down a muddy slope leading to the park’s garden. The work, which only took a few hours, came after the community was told to wait for a $65,000 to $150,000 solution from the city.
“The new stairs will be safe, durable and reasonably priced,” Tory wrote.
The City estimates that the new stairs will cost $10,000. In an interview with CTV News Channel from Toronto City Hall, Tory vowed to make sure that cost estimates are more reasonable in the future.
Well, $10,000 is better than $65-150,000 but still, $10,000???
She is in the Pit of Eternal Leftist Stupidity, and she is digging
One problem with placing a courthouse too close to a homeless shelter is that jurors have to wade through human excrement to get in the door. One problem with electing moonbats is that they will object to hosing the excrement away, because that would be racist:
Councilmember Larry Gossett said he didn’t like the idea of power-washing the sidewalks because it brought back images of the use of hoses against civil-rights activists.
Good Freaking Grief! This has to be parody right? Oh, wait, I forgot that it is no longer possible to parody the Left!
This woman would lose an IQ contest to a tree stump, and lose badly H/T The Washinton Times
Ms. Trump, an unpaid adviser to her father, caused backlash this weekend after she took a seat on his behalf during a working session Saturday morning in Hamburg. Mr. Trump said he had asked his daughter to hold the seat while he attended meetings, calling the practice “very standard.”
“I don’t mean to sound sexist, it can be dangerous to comment on what women wear, but the fact that she sat in for her father in a dress that was so incredibly ornamental was such a contradiction in terms,” Ms. Walsh told MSNBC host Thomas Roberts on Sunday, in remarks first flagged by Newsbusters.
“And I think that what we see is that in patriarchal, authoritarian societies, daughters have great value — they are property,” she said. “And the message that she is sending about her own value, about her place in the White House, and about the place of women in this administration, I think, are really, pretty frightening.”
You simply cannot parody these moonbats any more. They revel in their idiocy, wearing it like a badge of honor.
Well, to anyone who can think, the answer is easy. Of course it can. If someone is trying to rape a woman (a violent act) and she shoots him (a violent act) then that solve sthe problem of that rapist, mainly that he is breathing. Both cats are indeed violent are they not? But all violence is not equal. His act of violence was an act of evil. Her act of violence was noble and good. It not only stopped her from being raped, but likely other women he may have targeted in the future.
I could go on and on, and on with examples of how some violence is indeed, necessary, and noble. But really, would it do any good for those who cling to the foolish saying that violence is violence, and never solves anything. I cannot grasp how anyone could believe such a demonstrably idiotic idea.
The Left, of course largely rejects such common sense, at least in part because they are so obsessed with equality. To them, anyone who judges one culture, or religion, or behavior over another is abominable. The same rule applies to violence. To say one act of violence is good while another is evil is unfathomable to them.
Soak up the falsehoods (controlling our borders is somehow, well, you know, evil!) Soak up the arrogance (these goofs really think they are the best and brightest.) Soak up the fear mongering (Republicans are going to kill 22 million people if they repeal Obamacare!) Yes, 22 million!
This video answers some important questions.
Yes, Joan Walsh is as out of touch with reality as ever. As Southern ladies might say, “Bless her heart”.
Yes, these people are as obsessed with race as ever. Note that Joan Walsh references “really good research” yet gives no sources. I suppose if she dreams it it is so. If stupidity were a competitive sport, Joan Walsh would have more rings that Tom Brady and Michael Jordan combined!
Yes, MSNBS is as bad as ever, if not worse. MNSNBS remains the Tree of Low-Hanging Blogging Fruit!
And yes, Meat Head is still Meat Head. Does Rob Reiner even know what planet he is on?
The Left truly is impossible to parody.
……but I am going to nonetheless H/T Moonbattery
Of course she did not mean 700,000,000,00 people in Kentucky will be kicked off Medicaid. She knows that is not true. She just misspoke. However, Maxine Waters has said dozens of other things that are so sincerely stupid that I am cutting her no slack! In fact, the only people more clueless than Mad Maxine are the knuckle dragging paste eaters that vote for her
I wonder if the GOP plan covers batshit crazy, because Montel needs that coverage
As Montel Williams appeared on Friday’s CNN Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin to discuss his recent USA Today article attacking Republican plans to repeal ObamaCare, the former talk show host accused congressional Republicans of not caring about their own family members and of supporting a plan that would send their relatives and 140 million other Americans to “death.”
After recalling that, by the year 2020, 140 million Americans would be suffering from chronic illnesses, he added: “They are going to be looking for somebody to give them medication and health care. And what this bill does is sends them all to death.” A bit later he further charged that congressional Republicans do not care about their own relatives: “This Congress is the richest Congress we’ve ever had in history. They can afford premium health care. They don’t care about even their own family members — their cousins, their aunts or uncles or nieces who they all know have just been sentenced to death.”
Go over the top much Montel?
Competition is not only a good thing, but a necessary thing. Without the competitive spirit, mankind would never progress, never learn, never grow, evolve, invent new things, improve, or do anything else worthwhile or noble. But, the Left sees competition as bad because competition proves the folly of the Left’s deranged obsession with equality. So, the Left prefers to pursue equality, no matter how much damage that does to mankind. And valedictorians are just the latest target
Schools are getting rid of their “valedictorian” titles over concerns that they create harmful competition, influence course selection and propagate misconceptions of large disparities in GPA because of differences in class rank.
Nearly half of American high schools do not display class rank, according to the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), and many schools give out awards to students who obtain a certain grade-point average or higher instead of only the highest-scoring student, reported the Associated Press.
The NASSP stresses that schools should encourage cooperation instead of competition with regard to academic excellence. Connor Carrow of Lancaster High School in New York wants his school to switch from honoring the top 10 students to the cum laude, magna cum laude, summa cum laude system of honors typically adopted by colleges. He advocated this switch well before placing 14th in his own graduating class.
Cooperation is another wonderful thing, but it is certainly not necessary to eliminate competition to stress cooperation. Teams, and businesses do both every day don’t they? The fact is both offer incentives for individual, as well as collective goals, and improvements. The desire to be the best spurs greatness, and not just in the winners of a game, or the person with the best GPA. Tiger Woods made a lot of other golfers better, even if most will never reach the heights he did.
Competition is part of the human condition. Yes, some go too far, and no one likes a sore winner. But the overall good, for everyone, that competition brings, far outweighs any negatives. The Left cannot see this. All they see is winners, losers and thus inequality. Inequality, to the Left is an egregious sin. Of course, inequality is all around us. Some people are smarter, better looking, have more charisma, etc. Again, this is reality, but the Left misses the necessity of competition. My niece, now seven, loves riding her bike, and she is far from the most skilled rider in the neighborhood. But her efforts to keep up with older kids, or kids with better bikes, has her improving constantly.
What good would it do her to have “bike equality”? She would never show any improvement, and the other kids who are more experienced riders would be penalized. And what of kids not as good as my niece? What would they have to strive for? Nothing of course. All the kids would simply be muddled together, riding slowly, so as not to leave any behind. The kids would quickly become bored and disinterested, and would like park their bikes. This would be a sad result, but the Left would prefer this, as all would be, yes, equal. Which reminds me of one of life’s great truths. The Left prefers an equality of misery to a happy society with “inequality” where everyone is free to improve.
Egads! What type of mental malfunction would cause anyone to think this will end well?
The moonbats running Denver must want the place to smell like San Francisco:
The Denver City Council has voted unanimously to decriminalize a number of offenses, including defecating in public. Also, urinating in public. Camping on public or private land without permission. Panhandling. And lying across public rights-of-way, such as sidewalks.
This insanity was inspired by the liberal impulse to pander to illegal aliens at the expense of law-abiding, taxpaying Americans.
Democrat Mayor Michael Hancock and city officials explained the new ordinances are designed to protect immigrants — legal and the other kind — from “unintended consequences.” These consequences were fines and longer jail terms, as has been customary in most places for violating the behavioral norms of civilized American society.
There are no words
Individual Leftists may, from time to time, learn to reject Statism, and the worship of the State, but the ideology of leftism is inexorably wedded to the ideals of Collectivism, which demands the State be supreme in all matters including charity. Lena Dunham, writing an op-ed for the NY Times (you know a newspaper is intellectually bankrupt when it elevates the foolish to positions of credibility) is aghast that women might pay for their own birth control
“Birth control pills are many women’s method of choice for preventing unintended pregnancy and should be covered by all insurance policies for that reason alone,” she writes, but then adds that “millions of women living with endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome, cystic acne, migraines, uterine abnormalities and a history of ectopic pregnancies, birth control can be a crucial, even lifesaving, medical treatment.”
If the Trump administration and Republicans in Congress succeed in stripping funding from Planned Parenthood and giving employers carte blanche to deny women necessary medication under murky notions of moral disdain, all paths to health and wellness will disappear for a huge swath of Americans.
“All paths” to health will disappear? So, women could never, say, pay for their own birth control? No health insurance would cover birth control? Planned parenthood is the only option for birth control? This is wildly inaccurate. And, understand this. Not giving federal tax dollars to Planned Parenthood, will hardly prevent that organization from offering services
The group, however, showed, in its latest annual report, that it is performing even more abortions and providing less contraception services — all while its taxpayer funding has increased.
In 2015-2016, Planned Parenthood reports performing 328,348 abortions – an increase of 4,349 abortions over the 323,999 abortions the group states it performed in 2014-2015. The organization also reported 2,945,059 contraception services in 2014-2015, and 2,808,815 of the same services in its latest report, a drop of 136,244 within a year.
With regard to its revenue, the new report shows Planned Parenthood’s total revenue to be $1,354.3 million, an increase over the $1,296.1 million reported in 2014-2015. The organization shows an increase in government reimbursement and grants this year, reporting $554.6 million in taxpayer funding, while in 2014-2015 it reported $553.7 million.
Planned Parenthood reported an “Excess in Revenue Over Expenses” of $58.8 million in 2014-2015. That amount rose to $77.5 million this past year.
So, Planned Parenthood, which Dunham practically elevates to sainthood, could not offer free birth control to women who cannot afford it? Certainly in Planned Parenthood were a corporation raking in $78 million a year Dunham would demand they pony up some of their “obscene profits”. Yet, in this case Dunham, being a Leftist can never imagine any solution but one that emanates from the federal government. How very collectivist of Dunham. This is the fatal flaw in Leftism that leads it to destroy everything it touches. Leftism sees the State as the only possible solution to any and every problem. Individuals are seen as helpless dependents who will perish without a massive bureaucracy to care for them from birth.
This belief also leads the Left to reject individual liberties in favor of the “common good” and “equality”. As a wise man said you may have equality, or you can have liberty, but you cannot have both. To ensure the egalitarian utopia the Left desires the government must be supreme, the sole arbiter of what “rights” individuals may have, and when such rights may be sacrificed upon the altar of Collectivism. In short, collectivist demands that natural rights be surrendered so as to reach this fictional utopia where all are equal.
Such a desire is lunacy, yet the Left is hopelessly addicted to this lunacy.
