NFL’s Kaepernick Compares Cops to Fugitive Slave Patrols

NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick compared police officers to fugitive slave patrolmen after a Minnesota officer was acquitted in the shooting death of a black motorist. Kaepernick tweeted his displeasure with the verdict, with a graphic reading “You can’t ignore your history – always remember who they are.” Between the lines, a police badge is shown side-by-side with a “fugitive slave patrol” badge. Minnesota police officer Jeronimo Yanez has been dismissed as a police officer after he was acquitted of manslaughter in the shooting death of black motorist Philando Castile.

And Colin continues to be the worthless tool that he is..

Liberal Sports Media and Gay Activists Blast St. Louis Cardinals for Inviting Lance Berkman to ‘Christian Day’ at Busch Stadium

The St. Louis Cardinals have found themselves in the crosshairs of the LGBT community for inviting former Cardinal Lance Berkman to the team’s annual Christian Day event. Berkman’s presence sparks controversy amongst the gay community because of his role in the fight against the transgender bathroom ordinance, aka the “Equal Rights Ordinance,” in Houston in 2015. Pride Center of St. Louis issued this highly critical statement of the Cardinals decision to invite Berkman: “Pride St. Louis is disappointed by the decision of the St. Louis Cardinals to provide a public platform for Berkman, an individual whose words and actions towards the LGBTQ+ are divisive and demeaning.” The group initially released the statement to Outsports, an SB Nation website which prioritizes news involving the LGBT community and sports. According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, “On its own, Outsports has called Berkman a “bigot” and “an outspoken opponent of the LGBT community” who was “one of the faces of the campaign against Houston’s equal-rights ordinance” in 2015.” Despite the backlash, as of this writing, the Cardinals remain committed to having Berkman attend “Christian Day.” The team issued their own statement in response to those troubled by the move: “The Cardinals have hosted a Christian Day at the ballpark for nearly three decades. Lance Berkman participated in Christian Day when he was a Cardinals player, and we welcome him back this year to discuss his faith.”

Outstanding!!  Kudos to the front office of the St. Louis Cardinals for standing firm against the brazenly hypocritical bullying tactics of the gay mafia.  They want the right, and support, to have their gay days, and “pride” parades and so on…without ANY opposition whatsoever.  And yet, they don’t want the other aside (i.e. Christians) afforded the same freedom to express THEIR views and hold THEIR events.  The gay mafia are a bunch of self-righteous, self-serving, hypocritical, fascist, pc-police and speech Nazis.

ESPN Finally Returns Hank Williams Jr. to Monday Night Football Promos

After firing him six years ago because his politics leaned too far to the right, cable sports network ESPN is rehiring Hank Williams, Jr., as its face for Monday Night Football. ESPN has announced that Hank “Bocephus” Williams will be back singing the Monday Night Football theme featuring the catch phrase refrain, “Are you ready for some football?” “I think it’s a return to our past in that it’s such an iconic song associated with football,” Stephanie Druley, ESPN’s senior vice president of events and studio production, told USA Today. “I hope there will be some happy people on Monday night again,” Williams said of his reinstatement. “It feels natural, fulfilling and satisfying at this point when you’ve kind of done it all.” The cable sports giant fired the country artist in 2011 after he tweeted remarks about President Barack Obama. Oddly, Sporting News attempted to use ESPN’s rehiring of the conservative-minded country artist as a means to proclaim the cable network’s liberal bias has now been eliminated. For Sporting News, Jordon Heck insisted, “After ESPN’s recent publicized layoffs, many argued the reason the network is struggling is because it was too liberal leaning. Some feel like this hiring should halt that argument.” It is an odd claim that ten years of extreme liberal bias could be erased by allowing Hank Williams, Jr., to sing a song for a few minutes once each week, while otherwise doing nothing about the daily liberal bias spewed by hosts, sportscasters, and writers. ESPN’s Druley said he isn’t much worried about any backlash against rehiring Williams and bringing a known center-right personality back to the network. “I’m sure there’ll be some, but I’m not concerned. It was the right time,” Druley said. “We discussed it internally, and it was just the right time to bring him back.”

Leftist Sports Writers Ramping Up Pressure on NCAA to Punish Texas Over Bathroom Bill

The liberal sports media establishment is ramping up its pressure on the organization that governs college sports to punish the state of Texas as its gets ready to pass its own version of the North Carolina transgender bathroom bill. The left-wing sports site Deadspin is rallying the troops to force the NCAA to punish Texas if it passes its own bathroom bill into law. The Lone Star State is working on a bill that would require people to use restrooms in government-operated facilities that correspond to their birth sex, meaning that men pretending to be women would not be allowed to use the women’s restroom. But, as soon as the state began looking at such a law, sports leagues weighed in as if they should have a say in laws states consider. Indeed, right after the bathroom bill was introduced, Lone Star Governor Greg Abbott slammed an executive of the NFL who warned the state that future Super Bowls would be canceled in Texas if the state should pass the bill. “For some low-level NFL adviser to come out and say that they are going to micromanage and try to dictate to the state of Texas what types of policies we’re going to pass in our state, that’s unacceptable,” Abbott said early in March. Since the governor’s comment, the state’s House of Representatives passed a version of the bathroom bill, and it now sits in the Senate awaiting consideration. And as the bill winds its way through the lawmaking process, Deadspin is now marshaling its forces to punish Texas over its impending passage. The lefty sports site is now urging the NCAA to warn Texas that if it passes its bathroom bill, the organization will pull any future tournament games. But, Deadspin is upset that the NCAA has said nothing about this thus far.

Perhaps, just perhaps..  The NCAA saw what happened to ESPN when it became overrun by  extreme liberal sportswriters, anchors, and so on…and, as a result, lost millions and millions in revenue as customers were cancelling their subscriptions.  And why was that?  Because ESPN was brazenly taking political positions.  People watch sports to get away from politics; NOT get preached to by arrogant, elitist, liberal sports nerds (who have the IQ of a Chihuahua) about who they should vote for, and what social policies they think we need imposed on us because we’re a bunch of stupid, racist, inbred, hicks.  Its why ESPN is on life support…and why America elected Donald Trump.  Americans are sick and tired of political correctness.

Kaepernick may become a Seattle Seahawk

Colin Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, who made headlines last season for refusing to stand during “The Star-Spangled Banner” may be suiting up for the Seattle Seahawks next season. Pete Carroll, Seattle’s head coach, was asked Monday on ESPN Seattle about a potential backup for Russell Wilson. Some of the names listed were Kaepernick and Robert Griffin III. “We’re looking at everybody. We really are,” Carroll said. “We’ve been tracking everything that’s going on, and we’ve got cap and roster issues and stuff like that that we’re still trying to manage properly. But quite frankly, yes, we are looking at all those guys.” Kaepernick was benched last November by former coach Jim Tomsula in favor of Blaine Gabbert. The 2011 second-round pick, less heralded than other QBs in his draft class, went on season-ending injured reserve and needed a trio of surgeries: his non-throwing left shoulder, left knee and right thumb. He hardly disappeared as a backup, instead taking his old job back last month. And he made international headlines when he stopped standing for the national anthem in what he said was a protest against racial oppression. First he sat, then he kneeled. Others joined him. As his team struggles, the 28-year-old Kaepernick appears as collected as any losing quarterback in the league. This is the same guy who led San Francisco to a runner-up Super Bowl finish following the 2012 season.

Colin is such a nauseating tool…  Let’s hope Coach Carroll has the sense to go with RG3, or someone else as their backup QB.

‘White Devils’: Muhammad Ali’s Racist Mosque Speeches Revealed

FBI files detailing speeches delivered by heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali in American mosques in the 1960s show a different, more racist and radical face of the famed sportsman. The speeches feature Ali calling whites “crackers” and “white devils,” and telling black congregants that blacks want to be segregated from whites. The speeches, which were released after a Freedom of Information Act request by Washington watchdog group Judicial Watch, revealed that Ali had far more radical views about race than his more benign public persona might have led people to believe. Not only did Ali thunder that the 1964 civil rights act was a “swindle” on blacks, he also went on to excoriate whites, calling them “blue-eyed devil white people,” and insisting that “the so-called Negro is the original man and is superior to the white devil.” The FBI files show that Ali told a crowd at a Washington D.C. mosque that he preferred “dying outright” or going to jail than going into the U.S. Army. In another speech delivered at a Cleveland mosque, Ali said the American flag “represented death and destruction,” but the so-called “Muslim flag” represents “life and prosperity, justice for all black men.” According to the FBI reports, the groups Ali spoke to were congregations of the Nation of Islam, an extremist hate group the FBI defined as an “all-Negro, quasi-religious organization which espouses a line of violent hatred of the white race, Government, law and law enforcement.” The Nation of Islam is highly anti-Semitic and teaches its followers that whites will all be killed in a coming “War of Armageddon.” The three-time heavyweight champion, who passed away in June of 2016 after a lengthy battle with Parkinson’s syndrome, is today portrayed as a courageous crusader for equal rights as well as one of America’s most celebrated sportsmen. But, his long-secret speeches reveal a figure steeped in hate and racist proclamations. Ali’s family recently started a new civil rights campaign to fight anti-Muslim sentiment and have used their famed father’s legacy as a basis to push their effort. Their “Step into the Ring” campaign began after Ali’s son, Muhammad Ali, Jr., was briefly detained at a Florida airport. The boxer’s namesake son said he was racially and religiously profiled by airport authorities. But, the files now reluctantly released by the FBI paint a far more radical Muhammad Ali than his publicly accepted reputation.

Indeed..  Wow..

ESPN lays off about 100 employees, including Danny Kanell, Ed Werder

It’s a dark day at ESPN. The sports broadcasting network sent a memo to employees early Wednesday, informing them that a series of previously announced layoffs would take place today. Familiar faces like Ed Werder, Danny Kanell, Jayson Stark, Trent Dilfer and Brett McMurphy are among those who have been let go. The total number of employees cut will be around 100, Fox News has learned. The memo, from ESPN President John Skipper, noted that the network’s new talent lineup will be announced soon. “Dynamic change demands an increased focus on versatility and value, and as a result, we have been engaged in the challenging process of determining the talent—anchors, analysts, reporters, writers and those who handle play-by-play—necessary to meet those demands,” Skipper wrote to employees. “We will implement changes in our talent lineup this week. A limited number of other positions will also be affected and a handful of new jobs will be posted to fill various needs. “These decisions impact talented people who have done great work for our company. I would like to thank all of them for their efforts and their many contributions to ESPN.”

Well, this was to be expected with ESPN losing subscribers by over a MILLION this last year alone, which translates into BILLIONS lost in revenue.  ESPN’s has become so politically correct and liberal in recent years, that it has turned off a large number of its (former) followers.  So, again, this is hardly surprising..
