Kaepernick Silent After NYC Police Commissioner DEMOLISHED Him On 9/11 For What He Did

Published

on

As the controversy surrounding former San Francisco Forty-niners third-string quarterback Colin Kaepernick continues in the face of Kaepernick being named the spokesman for Nike’s 30th-anniversary for the “Just Do It” campaign, the anger of the American people continues to swell. Morning Consult found that Nike’s favorability fell by 34% after announcing Kaepernick’s addition to their latest marketing campaign.

Will their favorability continue to fall now that it has been revealed that Kaepernick made a $25,000 donation to a charitable group honoring a convicted cop killer named after former Black Liberation Army member Assata Shakur? The donation was made to Chicago-based Assata’s Daughters in 2017 as part of a $1 million charitable pledge.

The Daily Mail reported in 2017:

“Colin Kaepernick’s $25,000 donation to a charitable group honoring a convicted cop killer has been revealed.

“Kaepernick’s foundation made the donation to Chicago-based Assata’s Daughters, named after former Black Liberation Army member Assata Shakur, in April as part of a $1million charitable pledge.”

He made the donation as part of his pledge to donate $100,000 a month for 10 months to ‘organizations working in oppressed communities’.

Assata’s Daughters was founded in 2015 to ‘develop and train young people, ages 4-19, in the Black queer feminist tradition and in the spirit of Assata,’ according to the group’s website. They plan to use the current traction obtained through the Black Lives Matter movement to carry on into the future and have earmarked the funds from Kaepernick’s foundation:

  • $2,500 is going to Cop Watch, a program that trains volunteers to follow and video police officers.
  • $15,000 earmarked for ‘teen workshops’ to carry out a commitment to develop and train young people in the black queer feminist tradition.

Now New York City’s 40th police commissioner, Bernard Kerik, is slamming Kaepernick referring to him as a “disgusting thug” for promoting organizations that support cop killers such as Assata Shakur.

Kerik publically rebuked Kaepernick for his anti-police rhetoric, stating: “As far as Kaepernick goes, I think he’s a thug. I think that because those police socks, the pig socks, that he wore, that is the same rhetoric that the Black Liberation Army and the Black Panther Party and the Weather Underground they used to promote back in the ‘60s and the and the 70’s and early 80’s.”

Shakur was convicted of first-degree murder in the 1973 shooting death of New Jersey state trooper Werner Foerster and sentenced to life in prison but staged a daring jailbreak and now lives as a fugitive in Cuba.

Shakur, whose legal name is JoAnne Deborah Chesimard, has become a revered figure in some activist circles, despite her current fugitive status and listing on the FBI’s Most Wanted list.

Known as a former Black Panther, Shakur broke away to join a more militant offshoot of the group.  When the car she was driving was pulled over for a broken taillight by Trooper Foerster, Shakur was already wanted on several charges.

A shootout followed where Foerster was killed and Shakur was wounded. There are different accounts as to whether Shakur herself or another occupant of the vehicle actually pulled the trigger. However, she was successfully convicted of murder under aiding and abetting laws.

Shakur was sentenced to life in prison but escaped in 1979 when members of the Black Liberation Army visited her behind bars with concealed handguns, took prison officials hostage and commandeered a van. Though the two were not related by blood, Shakur was godmother to rapper Tupac Shakur, whose stepfather was convicted of aiding her escape from prison.

The former New York Police commissioner continued, stating: “People don’t know this, but this guy paid $25,000, sent a $25,000 check to a group that supports Assata Shakur, who killed a New Jersey state trooper, and that organization she would affiliate with was responsible for a multitude of bombings and cop assassinations. Ten cops were killed by that group, and Kaepernick supported her with a $25,000 check last year. I think he’s disgusting, this isn’t about the ‘oppression.’ I heard him the other day saying, ‘my brothers are fighting for the oppressed.’ What oppressed? What are you talking about? This is the United States of America. Nobody’s oppressed in the United States of America. You want to see oppression? I’ll talk you to a couple other countries I promise you you’ll find oppression.”

According to the Washington Times:

“Contributions include $25,000 for 350.org, a climate-change group dedicated to fighting fossil fuels, and $25,000 for the Center for Reproductive Rights, a pro-choice advocacy organization.

“The foundation gave $50,000 in December for a “health clinic partnership” at the now-defunct Dakota Access pipeline protest, and $25,000 to United We Dream in order to “keep DACA in force,” referring to President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals executive order.

“The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback also has close ties to the Women’s March, including organizers Tamika D. Mallory, Carmen Perez and Linda Sarsour.

“The Kaepernick Foundation donated in June $25,000 to the Gathering for Justice NYC, headed by Ms. Perez, while Ms. Mallory and Ms. Sarsour appeared at the Aug. 24 pro-Kaepernick rally outside NFL headquarters.

“Part of the Kaepernick Foundation’s $33,000 donation for the Lower East Side Girls Club was designated for travel and lodging for the Women’s March convention in October.

“The Women’s March returned the favor with a shoutout Sunday on Facebook with a post saying, “#TaketheKnee [is] on the right side of history today — not just NFL players, but all of YOU. Show your support for the athletes siding with justice.”

“The Women’s March has its own Shakur connection: The group came under fire in July for a tweet celebrating the birthday of Shakur. Shakur was placed on the FBI’s most-wanted list as a “domestic terrorist” who belonged to an “extremist group,” the Black Revolutionary Army.

“The backlash included a tweet from Sen. Marco Rubio, Florida Republican, who said, “Unbelievable that anyone would idolize a cop killer.'”

Trump Just Revealed What He’s Going To Do The Next Time Acosta Acts Up

Published

on

...

* By

Now that a federal judge has ruled that CNN’s Jim Acosta must have his press credentials reinstated, President Trump has a plan for if and when Acosta steps out of bounds again. And I do believe he’s dead serious on this one.

Trump is saying that if Acosta pulls another stunt like the last one, he’ll have him thrown out of the room or they will stop the press conference altogether. Then the president will just leave. That would be the perfect way to handle it. Chicks on the Right has more on this awesome response:

As I mentioned earlier, a federal judge has ruled Jim Acosta MUST be given access to the White House.

His media pass has been reinstituted.

So President Trump has a plan for what he’ll do if (more like WHEN) Acosta acts up again:

I think he means it, too.

Chris Wallace asks him “A federal judge, who you appointed has just ruled that you must give CNN reporter Jim Acosta his press pass back. Your reaction to the ruling, sir.”

“Yeah, it’s fine I mean it’s not a big deal,” POTUS responded. “What they said though is that we have to create rules and regulations for conduct etc. etc.”

Awesome. I think he’s spot on. There SHOULD be rules and expectations.

“We’re doing that, we’re going to write them up right now,” Trump continued. “It’s not a big deal and if he misbehaves we’ll throw him out or we’ll stop the news conference.”

“What are your rules going to be?” Wallace asked.

“We’re writing them now. We’ll have rules of decorum you know you can’t keep asking questions. We had a lot of reporters in that room, many MANY reporters in that room and they were unable to ask questions because this guy gets up and starts you know doing what he’s supposed to be doing for him and for CNN and you know just shouting out questions and making statements too.”

Exactly. It’s not just obnoxious… it keeps OTHERS from doing their jobs.

“But I will say this, look, nobody believes in the First Amendment more than I do and if I think somebody is acting out of sorts I will leave I will say thank you very much, everybody, I appreciate you coming and I’ll leave… and those reporters will not be too friendly to whoever it is that’s acting up.”

I’m SO into this. I think he’s handling this beautifully.

Fellow reporters aren’t going to look too favorably on the guy who ruins it for EVERYONE.

Brian Kemp Wins Intense GA Governor’s Race – Stacey Abrams Has Shocking Response

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by: Washington Times

While claiming “democracy failed Georgia,” Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams said Friday she will no longer stand in the way of officials, certifying Brian Kemp, the Republican, as the winner.

“This is not a concession speech,” Ms. Abrams said, delivering a fiery speech to supporters saying the voting process was poisoned from the start by Republicans — and in particular Mr. Kemp, who had been secretary of state until he resigned after the election.

State officials can certify the results at any time now that a 5 p.m. Friday deadline has passed.

Mr. Kemp holds a lead of about 60,000 votes over Ms. Kemp — and is some 17,000 votes above the 50 percent threshold needed to avoid a runoff. Ms. Abrams had been hoping to uncover enough votes to narrow that gap, bring Mr. Kemp below the majority point, and force a runoff.

Ms. Abrams had been bidding to become the first black woman to hold a governorship in the U.S.

“I don’t want to hold public office if I need to scheme my way into the post,” she said.

Earlier Friday her team had floated to local reporters the possibility of mounting a long-shot legal bid to overturn the results of the election. That would have required her to prove enough “misconduct, fraud or irregularities” that the outcome was sufficiently put in doubt.

She had amassed a team of nearly three dozen lawyers working on the plans, The Associated Press reported.

But the move drew fierce criticism, with Georgia Republicans saying she had long passed the point of being a gracious loser.

With her decision not to fight any longer, Ms. Abrams moves from candidate to Democratic martyr — joining Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke as election losers who still emerged with a massive following and a major national profile.

Ms. Abrams said her next step will be to create an organization dedicated to overhauling Georgia’s elections system. She said the group’s first step will be a federal lawsuit challenging the way this election was run.
