College Team Just Showed Up For The Game With Huge Change To Their Nike Uniforms

Published

on

The anthem kneeling controversy has caused a lot of stir. Especially within the sports world. Colin Kaepernick’s actions have had ripple effects throughout society.

Entertainers and sports athletes have commented on it. Politicians and public figures have commented. Now high school sports coaches are commenting as well.

This time their voice is being heard in their uniforms.

Trending: White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

“About 45 minutes before the College of the Ozarks volleyball team’s match on Friday, a man walked in with a box of new uniforms. Head coach Stacy Muckenthaler said she didn’t know what they’d look like. All she knew was that they wouldn’t have a Nike swoosh. The College of the Ozarks volleyball team played its first games since the school announced it would “choose its country over company” and remove all athletic uniforms purchased from Nike that contain the brand’s famous swoosh emblem.

The private Christian college of about 1,500 students announced in a news release Wednesday that student-athletes will no longer wear the brand in response to the company’s 30th-anniversary ad campaign featuring former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. “In their new ad campaign, we believe Nike executives are promoting an attitude of division and disrespect toward America,” College of the Ozarks President Jerry C. Davis said in the release. “If Nike is ashamed of America, we are ashamed of them. We also believe that those who know what sacrifice is all about are more likely to be wearing a military uniform than an athletic uniform.”

When the team opened the box, they found gray T-shirts with numbers on the front and back with “OZARKS” across the back. According to Muckenthaler, the team only cares about having their school name on their jerseys. One player declined to comment after the C of O’s sweep of Williams Baptist in straight games at the Evangel Classic and referred questions about Nike to Muckenthaler.

Muckenthaler said the program will switch to Adidas uniforms, and players wore Adidas shorts Saturday. The Nike swoosh was part of the volleyball team’s shirts and shorts prior. “They don’t care what T-shirt they’re wearing,” Muckenthaler said. “They just want to play volleyball.”

With some extra attention on the school’s latest stance, Muckenthaler said it was nice to get away from the Point Lookout campus and to focus on volleyball. She said it wasn’t hard to keep the team focused on the sport. Unlike major athletics programs that have long-term contracts that pay millions, College of the Ozarks had no such arrangement with Nike. C of O spokesperson Valorie Coleman told USA TODAY Sports earlier this week the coaches would no longer to be able to purchase Nike gear as result of the new mandate.

The school has taken stands against protests involving Kaepernick in the past. The college announced in September 2017 that the school’s teams would walk away from any game where the opposing team takes a knee, sits or turns its back on the American flag or national anthem.

In response, the 2018 Men’s Division II NAIA Basketball National Tournament was moved from the school, which had hosted the tournament for the previous 18 seasons. The tournament is now played in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

“Our school is very consistent,” Muckenthaler said. “They are tried and true. They have a belief system and they hold true to that. It’s not easy to make decisions that they make. I’m just very proud of the institution and I’m happy to wear ‘Ozarks’ on the back of our jerseys right now, even if it is a T-shirt.”

The head coach said her father is in the military, while her husband is a police officer. She’s proud of where she works. “I’m just so proud of the college for taking a stand,” she said. “Those two positions are very important to me and the school is very important to me. I’m just very proud of them.”

The coach is not the only person who has problems with people who support the anthem kneeling. People like President Trump and Vice President Pence have publically denounced such actions. As well as innumerable other public officials. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg called it dumb and disrespectful.

President Trump has actively used his Twitter account to use his social media platform to express his support for the military and law enforcement in light of the issue. Something he has found support with. As he has actively discussed the issue at many of his rallies.

Share if you disagree with anthem kneeling because you think it is disgraceful.

Share if you think changing the uniforms is the right thing to do.

Share if you believe that what Colin Kaepernick did was wrong.

Share if you agree that we need to respect our military, country, flag, and law enforcement officials by standing for and singing the national anthem.

Kurt Russel SHOWED Overpaid Celebs To Shut Up About Trump – Hits Them Where It Hurts!

Published

Since the second that Donald Trump was declared as our next president, liberals have not stopped complaining about the outcome, even after more than a year with him in the White House. The despicable display reached the height of annoyance during every ego-stroking awards ceremony since President Trump was elected. All have turned into a Trump-trashing session for pissed of celebrities to get far too much off their chest about our unapologetic leader.

However, not everyone in Hollywood shares the same opinion as the most outspoken offender, Meryl Streep, as Kurt Russell just showed her and all of Trump’s other famous foes that it’s time to shut up about our president.

If you haven’t heard much from Russell lately, it’s because he falls into the rare category of celebrities who isn’t crying over Hillary Clinton’s loss and doesn’t feel that he needs to make his political opinions known. He’s simply doing what he’s paid well to do and wishes others in the biz would too. Since they continue to throw tantrums and trash Trump on a public stage, Russell reached his breaking point and finally fired back hard.

“This is a business that’s heavily promulgated by people who have a politically liberal bent,” Russell began in his blistering beratement of these overpaid crybabies after what Streep said at the Golden Globes. “I don’t begrudge them that. I’m a libertarian; frankly, I think my liberalness goes far beyond theirs in a lot of ways,” he added, as reported by the American Lookout. “But yeah, we think differently, and maybe that’s cut me out of some things. I don’t care,” he said before dropping a brutal announcement on these Streep and her lemmings that left them burning.

Explaining that they’re not empowered in this business by their disgraceful attitudes against our leaders, the badass actor said they better be prepared to put their money where their nasty mouths are since they could be out of work. “People know I get along great with all kinds of directors, all kinds of actors. And I tell you, you hire me, I will show up, 24/7, and I will give you 100%. I will help you fix whatever problems come up. You hire me, I’m your boy. It’s just, it’s all about the work. And when that’s done, I am done.”

Kurt has said recently that “the last thing I like to watch is entertainers or actors get political,” which he just proved by clearly pointing out that nobody cares what celebrities have to say about politics, and that their obnoxious behavior only shows how unemployable they are. They need to just stick to what they are overpaid to do and leave the rest to the adults in charge.

Real American Tom Selleck Has Had Enough Of Rosie Trashing Trump, Hits Her Where It Hurts

Published

Rosie O’Donnell tends to stick her foot in her mouth every time she opens it. It’s as if her foot was metal, and her mouth is a magnet. I guess it’s better than having her head shove where the sun doesn’t shine. It’s no surprise that O’Donnell is as far left as they come. She has made many inflammatory remarks on subjects she really doesn’t have a clue about. You can only imagine what her morning routine must be like. Waking up, pissed off looking in the mirror and pointing at herself ” You can do it, Rosie, Republicans are the enemy, You’re a Goddess”. I’ve got news for Rosie, there isn’t a bone in my body that thinks you’re a Goddess.

Day after day, night after night Rosie takes to Twitter and attacks President Trump, as well as his 62 million supporters.

I think it’s time Rosie is locked up in a mental hospital for a very long time because this woman is beyond couch time. No therapist can handle the insanity this woman spews. Rosie, along with 99% of Hollywood are all on the same brain wave, and it’s scary. It’s no surprise Kanye West had a mental breakdown. If I lived in Hollywood I would probably do the same.

The now-canceled “Rosie O’Donnell Show” on NBC allowed Rosie to tell the world just how biased, and hateful she was as a person. It’s no surprise that Rosie’s show was canceled. The saying goes that if you live in Hollywood you can’t be a Conservative or a Gun owner. I think Tom Selleck found that out the hard way. Selleck appeared on the show once to talk about his new movie that was about to hit the big screen. Instead of talking about the show, Rosie decided to corner, and interrogate Mr. Selleck for appearing in an NRA commercial.

Via Capitalist Magazine:

In left-leaning Hollywood, one could more safely come out of the closet and admit to child molestation than a support of the Second Amendment. For Selleck’s colossal sin of being in Hollywood and conservative, the “Queen of Nice” jumped on Selleck the way Jeffrey Dahmer attacks a Chateaubriand.

O’Donnell: “But you can’t say that guns don’t bear responsibility. … Why would the NRA be against assault rifles? This is a gun that can shoot five bullets in a second. This is the gun that those boys brought into the school. Why the NRA doesn’t say as a matter of compromise: ‘We agree. Assault weapons are not good.’”

Selleck: “I can’t speak for the NRA –”

O’Donnell: “But you’re their spokesperson, Tom. You have to be responsible for what they say.”

Selleck: “I’m not a spokesperson –”

O’Donnell: “… But you can’t say that ‘I will not take responsibility for anything the NRA represents’ if you’re saying that you’re gonna do an ad for the NRA.”

Selleck: “… You’re carefully skirting the issue. It’s an act of moral vanity, Rosie, to assume that someone who disagrees with your political agenda to solve our problems cares any less or is any less –”

O’Donnell: “I never said you cared less. Tom, I don’t think you care less. Nor do I think the men in the NRA cared less. … I simply said, why can there not be a compromise?”

Selleck: “There is a compromise. There’s a compromise in enforcing laws, there’s a compromise in not allowing kids with guns in schools. The problem is, and what you don’t seem to realize. … Look, we all hang out with people we agree with, and you have a very one-sided view of the fact, but what you don’t understand –”

O’Donnell: “As does the NRA, and the people you hang out within the NRA have a one-sided view, as well.”

Had O’Donnell allowed him to speak, Selleck might have mentioned that people use guns perhaps as often as 1 million times per year for defensive purposes, undoubtedly preventing large numbers of murders.

Selleck might have said that Scotland and Ireland, countries with tough gun laws, have higher murder rates than the United States. Or that Switzerland, with a per-capita gun ownership higher than ours, has a lower murder rate.

Or that studies show that a woman who resists her attacker with a gun stands a better chance of avoiding injury or death. Or that convicted felons, when polled, say they are less likely to attack an armed person or enter a house where a gun is present. Or that Rosie O’Donnell does commercials for K-Mart, where one can purchase a rifle.

A piece of work, emotional liberals. – Capitalist Magazine

The NRA has been attacked for years for standing up to the Federal Government and making sure our Second Amendment rights are protected. There is no greater cause by the left than the one to take our Gun Rights away. The progressives know that as long as we keep in bare arms they can not control our lives like they want. Over the last four decades they have slowly started to disarm us, but with the election of Donald J. Trump, their efforts have failed. President Trump spoke at the National NRA Convention in Dallas, Texas this week. It’s nice to see someone in high office standing up for the rights given to us by God.
