ESPN’s Jemele Hill Says Police are Like ‘Slave Patrol’

Like many other left-wing sports commentators, ESPN’s Jemele Hill is incensed that anti-American protester Colin Kaepernick is still left unsigned by the NFL. But during a tweet about the former San Francisco 49ers’ status, Hill went even further by agreeing that America’s police are exactly the same as the racist, plantation slave catchers of the civil war era. Hill took to Twitter to lament that the Baltimore Ravens just signed former Arena Football League quarterback David Olson instead of giving Colin Kaepernick a shot. On her Twitter account, Hill groused, “Oh and ICYMI, the Ravens signed a dude who quit football to be a realtor and played in 2 games in college over a Super Bowl QB”: But, as Twitter users began to reply to Hill’s tweet, one user reminded her of Kaepernick’s own words. “I feel like it’s been forgotten that [Kaepernick] basically called (all) cops ‘slave patrol’ a month ago. I mean, that’s pretty inflammatory,” user Nathanael Johnson said. For her part, Hill saw nothing at all wrong with the claim that all cops are just like the racist patrols that were sent out by plantation owners to keep blacks in line. She responded to Johnson’s tweet saying, “Inflammatory, but historically accurate.” Mr. Johnson was a bit shocked that Hill was calling ALL police the “slave patrol.” He came back saying, “There’s historically truth there, yes … but is it fair to say now to all the cops, esp when many minorities serve?” Hill must have suddenly realized that she was stepping in it big time and then tried to pull back from the “all cops are racist slave catchers” stance she initially staked out. But, even as she pulled back from the “all cops” proclamation, she went in another direction to call our legal system “racist.” Without bothering to capitalize the first word of her reply, Hill then insisted, “i wouldn’t say all, but it’s been clear for a long time the policing & judicial system are institutionally racist.” Undaunted, Mr. Johnson came back saying, “I agree that America has a lot of growing/changing to do. My only point is that calling cops “slave patrol” is pretty inflammatory.” Oddly, in another set of tweets and replies, Hill insisted that no one knows what Colin Kaepernick thinks because “NO ONE HAS TALKED TO HIM” (her all caps). This is a bit absurd. After all, the former NFL second-string quarterback spent well over a year in interview after interview as well as on his social media slamming the USA, saying America was never great, calling police pigs, criticizing Trump and his voters, and attacking the country. One shouldn’t have to speak to Colin Kaepernick to find out his opinion. He has freely given his opinion whether people want to hear it or not. One would have to say that his hate for America is pretty well established at this point.

Jemele is a poster child for what’s wrong at the ailing, and extremely liberal, ESPN network.  Jemele is a nauseating, entitlement-minded, extremely liberal, agenda-driven, black racist.  To her, facts don’t matter.  Only race matters to her.  She’s making this big deal over Colin who has been a complete embarrassment to the NFL, and has cost that organization ratings….which translates into dollars; BIG dollars.  And, that’s all that the NFL and other professional sports organizations care about.  Someone might want to take Jemele aside and school her on that reality.  As for her comments about “all cops” being “racist…”  That’s as offensive as it is false.  There are thousands and thousands of cops who watch ESPN.  So, her superiors should be asked on camera if ESPN thinks “all cops are racist,”  and see how they dance around that. What a disgusting loser Jemele is.  ESPN should do the right think and fire her immediately…and apologize to the law enforcement community for her outrageous comments.

NFL Experiences Softer Than Expected Demand for Advertising Season After Colin Kaepernick’s Protest

After a nearly double-digit ratings freefall last year, the NFL experiences a lighter than expected demand for advertising buys for the upcoming season. “A number of factors have conspired to cast a bit of a pall over this year’s NFL market, which some insiders say is the softest since the Great Recession of 2008,” Ad Age points out. “For example, a number of marquee clients have slashed their pro football spend, while a few load-bearing categories aren’t committing anywhere near as many dollars to the NFL as they did a year ago. A source for Ad Age estimates a two percent to four percent increase in the price of commercials. Declines in demand for advertising from automobiles, movies, and male sexual enhancement products account for sales not meeting expectations. The piece speculates that the saturated schedule of NFL games, which include Thursday night broadcasts, several Sunday morning contests from London, and Saturday doubleheaders in Week 16 and Week 17, diminishes demand. A consumer shift away from broadcast television toward streaming services also receives consideration as a factor in the softening of expected sales. The article avoids mention of Colin Kaepernick, and several other players, who protested the national anthem in 2016 by refusing to rise as adversely impacting the league’s bottom line. Fans repeatedly cited Kaepernick’s protest as the top cause of their disinterest in football in 2016. In a Seton Hall poll, for instance, fans cited the anti-anthem protests as the top reason for tuning out NFL broadcasts. NFL ratings declined by nine percent in 2016. Penalties for hits once considered clean, rules largely negating the excitement of kick returns, referee involvement slowing the pace of the game, the suspension of Tom Brady for four games and the retirement of Peyton Manning, and players making a political football of football all come up as reasons for the ratings drop. A resurgent Dallas Cowboys, the New England Patriots looking to extend their dynasty after winning one of the most exciting Super Bowls in history, and Colin Kaepernick promising to end his protest should he find a suitor in free agency all give the league hope for a turn-around in 2017.

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.
