This shouldn’t surprise anyone. Remember when the NFL started all this crap with Colin K. and his kneeling during the playing of the National Anthem? The ratings for NFL games and “NFL Ticket” dropped like crazy as a result. We documented that, and how many stadiums looked empty after the NFL allowed that crap to continue. Now, in the Wuhan virus era when we can’t even physically go to games (and therefore that revenue for professional sports is not there), the NFL and MLB are seeing a similar effect…but it’s even worse because they’re playing in empty stadiums. So, we see these whiny, self-serving, self-righteous, spoiled-brat, entitlement-minded, millionaire athletes doing this kneeling crap and wearing social justice clothing…and Americans are over it. They’ve had it. So, they’re just changing the channel. What these obnoxious athletes and their coaches aren’t getting…..is that we just want to watch our sports without politics being rubbed in our faces. If they want to protest, or speak their minds about BLM, or how oppressed they feel living in America and all…then they need to do that on THEIR time; NOT ours. Sports used to be that one time where we could all go (regardless of political party affiliation or beliefs) and take a break from politics and just have a beer, a hotdog, and watch a ballgame and have a good time. Not anymore. These professional sports organizations, pandering to the liberal mobs out there, feel they have to rub their politically correct social justice politics in our faces whether we want to hear it or not. And THAT is why more and more Americans are saying to heck with that, and changing the channel.
Wait. I’m SO confused! The mayor of Portland and the governor of Oregon (both liberal Democrats, of course) are telling us that it’s just “peaceful protests” going on there. How can this be? John Adams famously said, “facts are stubborn things.” Indeed. To see photos and more (proof) of this insanity going on in Portland, click on the text above. Then, remember what the liberal idiots at CNN (like Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon) and MSNBC, etc. calling what’s going on there, simply “peaceful protests,”…or they’re latest talking point; “mostly peaceful protests.” It’s no wonder more and more people are turning away from CNN and MSNBC. You can’t see what’s going on there, and then hear idiots like Chris Cuomo, Don Lemon, and Joy Reid saying it’s all simply “peaceful protests” and somehow spin it to attack Trump for sending in federal marshals to protect the U.S. federal courthouse there….which was, of course, the right decision. The alternative was to allow the thugs in Portland to just burn it down. Total insanity.
For more on what’s happening in Portland, click on the text above. Hopefully this nonsense isn’t in your town or city. Kudos to the U.S. Dept. of Justice (DOJ) for stepping in and stepping up, since Mayor Ted Wheeler (D) has not only abdicated his duties to protect his city and it’s citizens….he’s actually been siding with the thugs and riotiers destroying that city. Unreal..
Again, we agree with that silent majority that doesn’t want to see our history erased, or our cops “defunded.” Now, more than ever, we need to support those great men and women in law enforcement who do an increasingly thankless, yet critical, job…and are getting it from all sides.
As for the Confederate statues, monuments, and flags.. History is what happened; not what we wish had happened. If we don’t study, or have reminders of what happened, then history has a way of repeating itself. So, we say.. Keep the statues and monuments. If you don’t like them, then don’t look at ’em.
Exactly! And, well said, Tammy. Tammy Bruce is the author of that outstanding piece. Tammy is president of Independent Women’s Voice, is a radio talk-show host, and a New York Times best-selling author. Excellent! 🙂
For those who are unaware, Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) happens to be black. Given what’s going on, it’s worth noting. Hopefully we’ll get to a point where such things are irrelevant. Thanks to both Sen. Scott, and former Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) from the great state of South Carolina for their wise input. Trey is 100% spot on when he says that defunding the police “is the single dumbest idea” either of us has ever heard. It’s the latest crazy notion put forth by the extreme liberal left, and championed by America haters like AOC and her ilk. Giving in to this mob mentality would be a disaster for any community that would endorse such lunacy. Imagine someone is breaking into your home, or you’re having a domestic violence issue, and so you rightfully call 911…only to hear a recording that says, “sorry. We’ve been defunded.” Yeah…it’s THAT crazy.
