NASCAR Driver Lost Sponsorship Because His Father Used ‘N-word’ Before He Was Even Born

Published

on

I have never used the N-word. Not before it was taboo and certainly not after it was. Having said that, I am a huge supporter of the First Amendment and I do not believe in censoring free speech. A private entity can do that if they wish, but you still have the right to say what you want. You also have the right to face the consequences for saying it. But you should never have to pay the consequences of someone else saying things that others find offensive… even if it is a family member.

NASCAR Xfinity driver Conor Daly is living a nightmare right now. He lost one of his sponsors because his father uttered a racial slur back in the 1980s. Conor wasn’t even born yet, so why should he be punished? Even if he was born, he was not the transgressor here, his father was. Conor’s father Derek Daly was a racecar driver in the 80s but that still does not call for the son paying for the so-called sins of the father.

Lilly Diabetes issued a statement on Friday stating that they were pulling their sponsorship of Conor’s No. 6 car in the NASCAR Xfinity race at Road America, citing the racially insensitive remark made by his father Derek Daly that surfaced this week. He used the N-word decades ago and now his son is being punished for it. That’s outrageously absurd and Orwellian in the extreme.

The company said in a statement that its sponsorship was intended to raise awareness for treatment options and resources for people living with diabetes. What does that have to do with Conor’s father or what he said all those years ago? “Unfortunately, the comments that surfaced this week by Derek Daly distract from this focus, so we have made the decision that Lilly Diabetes will no longer run the No. 6 at Road America this weekend,” Lilly said. That is ridiculous and Lilly deserves to be shunned for this. This is political correctness gone mad.

Conor, who is an IndyCar driver, made his NASCAR debut at the rural Wisconsin road course with Roush Fenway Racing. “The last (24 hours) have been quite an unnecessarily difficult ride for my family. There is A LOT I want to say… but I’m still here and still racing,” Conor wrote on Twitter Friday night. Good for him. At least he’s not letting the PC bullies deter him from racing.

Conor suddenly found himself the center of controversy this week when his father Derek and Indianapolis Colts radio voice Bob Lamey both admitted to using the N-word. He was forced into a crap storm over it.

Daly senior, who is a former Indy 500 and Formula One driver, was fired from his job as a WISH-TV racing analyst this week following the news that he had used the N-word in an interview 30 years ago. That’s just nuts. Now no one is ever forgiven for saying something stupid. Perhaps that should be applied to those that use derogatory terms against other races as well if you get my drift. All of this should just stop.

Lamey suddenly retired when his comments were made public. I’m not sure I blame him on that count. I’d be done with it too given the PC lynchmob mentality out there currently.

Daly senior admitted to the slur during an interview. He had just moved to the U.S. at the time and said the term had a different meaning and connotation in his native Ireland. Which it did and that means this should not be happening even more so. Derek said he was ‘mortified’ when he learned how the term was used in America and has never used it since then. But that wasn’t good enough for the PC police. Not even close… they wanted his scalp and got it.

Conor is now 26 years old and of course, was not even born when the comment was made by his father. “Finally, I want everyone to know I deeply regret and sincerely apologize for what I said more than three decades ago,” Daly senior said in his statement.

Lilly Diabetes is still sponsoring the RFR-owned cars of drivers Ty Majeski and Ryan Reed at Road America. “We remain committed to our mission of supporting people with diabetes,” Lilly said. Yep, but you are bullies. Lilly wanted publicity and this is how they got it. It’s shameful.

Conor thanked Roush Fenway and his Twitter followers for their support in the wake of the controversy. He also thanked his former sponsor. “Lilly Diabetes has been a big part of my career and I’m very thankful,” Conor wrote. That was kind and diplomatic of him but Lilly did not deserve that courtesy in my opinion. If there were real justice here, all drivers would refuse sponsorship from Lilly over this.

Is this where we are now? That you can dig into someone’s family history and the current generation has to pay for the sins of those that went before them? Well then… we are all damned. Congratulations. Instead of living in a bully-free society, we now live in a society of nothing but bullies. Censorship is everywhere you go now and free speech is dying a gruesome death. This isn’t the America I grew up in, know or love. I don’t recognize her anymore and that is just sad beyond measure.

Immigrant Actress Says She’ll Leave The U.S. And Not Just Because She Hates Trump

Published

Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron has been a citizen of our great nation for more than a decade, after leaving South Africa for a better life in America. Now, she’s wanting out and nobody is stopping her, but she wants everyone to know why she’s leaving and others should high tail it out of here too. Theron has identified what she feels is an imminent threat to humanity in this country and is more than just President Donald Trump, who she’s definitely not a fan of.

The successful actress has enjoyed all the perks of being an American citizen including an incredible career. More important than her acting chops are her two black children she’s adopted. She doesn’t feel that they are safe here in the U.S. and is at least talking about leaving, but like all other anti-Trump celebs, she probably won’t make good on her announcement and actually leave. She just likes the attention of complaining about this country, this time citing a new reason.

American News Central reports:

Charlize Theron was born in South Africa during the time of apartheid. She knows what racism is like.

Theron gained American citizenship just over a decade ago, however, she’s not that proud of her country or her president.

According to Charlize, she’s considering leaving the United States because it’s just too dang racist. Her two adopted black kids shouldn’t have to live in such an evil country!

She said this during an interview with far-left nutball Chelsea Handler.

From Downtrend:

When Charlize Theron isn’t making really dumb statement about gun control she apparently passes the time by making really dumb statements about race. The whitest person you’ve ever seen says there are parts of America that are so racist that she won’t go there and worries that this racism may drive her from the country entirely. It should be noted that she is from South Africa where white people are killed for the color of their skin and white farmers are driven from their land by angry blacks.

Theron sat down with her drunken leftist friend and equal foe of Trump’s as she is, to commiserate over how awful they feel that America has become. This “safe space” interview is rich with leftist insanity.

Chelsea Handler: You’re raising two children of color. Obviously, coming from South Africa, you know a lot about racial inequality, but what are your thoughts on Black Lives Matter and our current climate?

Charlize Theron: Being raised during the apartheid era in South Africa made me so hyperaware of equality and human rights. Of course, I have two black kids, but that was always something I was passionate about. I don’t even know how to talk about the last year under our new administration. But racism is much more alive and well than people thought. We can’t deny it anymore. We have to be vocal. There are places in this country where, if I got a job, I wouldn’t take it. I wouldn’t travel with my kids to some parts of America, and that’s really problematic. There are a lot of times when I look at my kids and I’m like, If this continues, I might have to [leave America]. Because the last thing I want is for my children to feel unsafe.

Theron’s children are among the most privileged kids in America guarded by people protecting them and likely a security wall or fence around their home. Her children are not in any danger with Trump as the president who has done nothing to make the country more racist with him in office. The only people perpetuating racism in America are liberals like her who are lying to their children and telling them that America is a racist place. Instilling fear in little ones like this is what’s really unsafe.

If Theron wants to fix a racism issue, she should look at her home country and start there. That’s where it really is dangerous, but she will just stay right here in America where it’s safe and complain about Trump for attention.

JUSTICE! Dog The Bounty Hunter Just Unleashed Hell On Man Who Threatened Trump’s Life

For years Dog the Bounty Hunter was one of TV’s most viewed shows.

Dog and his wife Beth have a bail bond company in Hawaii, they have a ragtag crew of people that track down criminals who skip bond and go on the run.  Most of the people who track these criminals are their own children with a few extras.

Dog also works out of Colorado with a special friend of theirs, Bobby Brown. He has a company that is based out of Denver and Colorado Springs. Even when working in a state where conceal carriers are everywhere, Dog and his crew only use nonlethal means to apprehend fugitives.

There was recently a case where a man named Shawn Richard Christy threatened the life of President Trump. A massive manhunt ensued where law enforcement is searching Pennsylvania for him and are coming up empty-handed.

Don’t worry, Dog just joined the hunt.

Fox News reported:

“Dog the Bounty Hunter” is joining the manhunt for a man who allegedly said he wanted to “put a bullet” in President Trump’s head.

“Dog the Bounty Hunter,” whose name is Duane Chapman, told the Mansfield News Journal he was joining the search for Shawn Richard Christy, 26, a Pennsylvania man who allegedly threatened the commander in chief.

Christy has been on the run since June 19 after allegedly threatening John M. Morganelli, the district attorney of Northampton County, Pa., and Trump in a Facebook post that has since been deleted.

“Dog the Bounty Hunter” is joining the manhunt for a man who allegedly said he wanted to “put a bullet” in President Trump’s head.

“Dog the Bounty Hunter,” whose name is Duane Chapman, told the Mansfield News Journal he was joining the search for Shawn Richard Christy, 26, a Pennsylvania man who allegedly threatened the commander in chief.

Christy has been on the run since June 19 after allegedly threatening John M. Morganelli, the district attorney of Northampton County, Pa., and Trump in a Facebook post that has since been deleted.

Chapman told the media outlet from his home in Hawaii that he had a “very hot lead” on Christy’s location.

“I have delivered messages to him,” he continued. “My goal is not to shoot him but get him to surrender.”

The reality television star told the media outlet he was slated to arrive in Mansfield, Ohio, on Sept. 27. He was originally planning on visiting the area to host a town hall meeting on “Addiction and How to Find Your Road to Redemption.”

Chapman said he hoped he can help with the search and “bring him in peacefully.”

Following the Facebook post, a federal warrant was issued for Christy’s arrest. He is also wanted in Pennsylvania for burglary, probation violation and failure to appear for an aggravated assault case.

The search, which now involves the U.S. Marshals Service, the FBI, and the Secret Service, has spanned several states and has reached as far north as Canada. Christy was likewise being sought in Ohio, where he was believed to have abandoned a stolen truck.

Authorities have offered a $20,000 reward for information leading to the capture of Christy but have warned that he should be considered armed and dangerous.

On the show “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” often times criminals just turn themselves in once they catch with that Dog and his team are on the hunt. Christy may want to consider doing just that, either way, he’s going to get caught.

And $20,000 is just enough to keep Dog interested.
