Now, this is a real American artist. Against the backdrop of a huge American flag, the singer-songwriter Kid Rock performed his song Born Free at a Fenway Park concert in Boston.
Whiskey Riff reported that within a minute into the song, he made his way to a lower level, knelt in front of the crowd, and stopped singing while he bowed his head for a few measures. He then looked out at the crowd and yelled what most of us Patriotic Americans are thinking, “ F*** Colin Kaepernick.”
His strong statement was obviously met with cheers and whistles from the crowd.
Of course, all this went down when Kaepernick was still pretending to play for the San Francisco Forty Niners. When he was put on the bench because he was a so-so player who was too lazy to run the ball.
Here is more on the real reason why Kaepernick was never resigned via The Comeback:
“Richard Sherman and others are concerned that nobody wants Colin Kaepernick because the outspoken quarterback is perhaps too outspoken. He quietly protested the national anthem by taking a knee when it was played before games in 2016, and now there’s a belief that teams don’t want that kind of First Amendment exercising in their locker rooms.
I can’t provide any more proof that teams aren’t blackballing Kaepernick than Sherman can that teams are blackballing him. But I do think history indicates that Kaepernick’s on-field performance has more to do with his lack of employment opportunities than anything else. Here are the reasons why.
1. Kaepernick isn’t a good NFL quarterback
Never really was, although he did take the league by storm, a la Robert Griffin III, early in his career. That was back when defensive coordinators and personnel were still shocked by such uniquely athletic quarterbacks and hadn’t yet figured out how to stop them. Then they did, and Kaepernick was exposed.
Once the league caught up to him, it became obvious that Kaepernick doesn’t know how to hit secondary reads or even consistently manage an NFL offense under center. He misses too many easy passes and bails far too early on promising plays.
In his last four seasons, Kaepernick has completed fewer than 60 percent of his passes, averaging just 7.1 yards per attempt. His 85.9 passer rating since the start of 2014 ranks 25th among 29 quarterbacks who have made at least 25 starts in that span.
That is not a small sample. Statistically and empirically, Kaepernick hasn’t performed consistently well since the 2013 playoffs.
2. Michael Vick, Greg Hardy, Adam Jones, Aldon Smith, Chris Culliver
Vick and his associates murdered dogs, Hardy was arrested for choking his girlfriend and throwing her onto a couch full of assault rifles. Jones pleaded no contest to conspiracy to commit disorderly conduct in connection to a Las Vegas strip club shooting that left a man partially paralyzed. Smith has been arrested at least five times since coming into the league. When asked if there were any gay players on his team, Culliver — who also has a rap sheet — once said this:
“No, we don’t got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do…. Can’t be with that sweet stuff. Nah…can’t be…in the locker room man. Nah.”
All of those guys found work after those incidents, because the NFL is a screwy business in which teams have always been willing to sacrifice moral high ground in order to win. And the better you are, the more likely you are to gain a second, third, fourth, fifth chance.
There’s no other way to explain why those five found new jobs, along with other talented turds. You know, guys like Michael Floyd, Ahmad Brooks, Ray McDonald, Adrian Peterson, Rolando McClain, Albert Haynesworth, Perrish Cox, Kenny Britt, Aqib Talib, Rey Maualuga, Brandon Marshall, Terrell Suggs, Joey Porter, Randy Starks, Frostee Rucker, Santonio Holmes, Kevin Williams, Nick Harper, Tank Williams, Michael Pittman, Muhsin Muhammad, Corey Dillon, Rod Smith and Ray Lewis.
If teams were willing to take the PR hits associated with employing those players, surely some would be willing to sign a guy like Kaepernick, whose jersey sales skyrocketed after he began protesting the anthem last year. Unless, of course, Kaepernick isn’t a good quarterback.
3. He probably thinks he’s a good quarterback
I know — EJ Manuel, Kellen Moore, Mark Sanchez, Zach Mettenberger, Brian Hoyer, Nick Foles, Colt McCoy, Josh McCown, Matt Barkley, Brandon Weeden, Scott Tolzien and Ryan Mallett all have jobs, and none of those guys are very good. In fact, I don’t think anyone would argue that any of the quarterbacks I just listed are better than Kaepernick.
But that doesn’t mean much, because none are viewed as starters, none are paid as starters and none pretend to be starters. They’re on rosters as quarterback insurance, and most of them are regular pocket quarterbacks who can serve as a poor man’s version of the starter they’re backing up.
In that respect, Kaepernick’s unique skill set could be hurting him. He isn’t a carbon copy of anything. He’s the type of player that you build an offense around if he’s good enough. But if he’s not good enough, there isn’t much of a role for him.
Kaepernick is also a bigger celebrity than every backup in the league, which could have him and his agent seeking a contract that will pay him something at least close to the $14.3 million he made in 2016. But nobody listed above is slated to make more than $6 million in 2017, and most will make a hell of a lot less than that.
That same dynamic might also explain why the more accomplished Jay Cutler remains a free agent. But nobody is suggesting he’s been blackballed.
Kaepernick isn’t very good, but for years he’s been led to believe otherwise. In a league where teams refuse to give up on talented turds but can live without semi-talented good guys, that’s the primary reason why he continues to linger on the free agent market.”
One thing we do have to to do is hand it to Kaepernick, the man is a marketing genius. When he saw his NFL career was about to come to an end he, and some rumor his girlfriend, devised a plan to call attention to himself by kneeling during the national anthem and wearing socks depicting cops as pigs to the Niner practice back in 2016.
Kaepernick has every right to kneel for the National Anthem if his employer allows it. But freedom of speech doesn’t mean freedom from consequences. Consequences that we can rest assured will follow him the rest of his life. And the same goes for Nike who has now made a spectacle of themselves by making this man the face of their 30 year “Just Do It” campaign. Which has left most of the business world asking why Nike strived to alienate the majority of their American customers who make over 40% of their annual sales.
PRICELESS! Parkland Activist And ‘March For Our Lives’ Co-Founder QUITS, Now Regrets Everything
It was about time the anti-Second Amendment Parkland student activists started to wake up and grew out of the temper tantrum they have been throwing since that horrible, but totally avoidable day, Valentines Day 2018 shooting.
Chicks On The Right is now reporting that one of the victim/activists Cameron Kasky may be in fact be starting to wake up. As it turns out, the young co-founder of March for Our Lives movement and is now starting to admit that he, and others, did make mistakes in the process.
Kasky told Fox News Radio’s Guy Benson and Marie Harf that he left the organization and he regrets mistakes he made.
Here is some of what he said to Fox News Radio:
“On going after Senator Rubio at the town hall: I’m very regretful of a lot of the mistakes that I’ve made along the way. One of the things I never really did was watch myself. If I was on a screen I kind of tried to run away from it. I’m not entirely sure why. But, looking back on that it’s like you said, you touched off on this very well in the intro, I’m not going to kick myself for it because I’m 17. Despite the fact that I thought I did at the time, I don’t know everything. But, I look back on that and I say, you know what, there were people who had just been buried and when you’re looking at somebody that you find might in some way have been complicit in this murderer obtaining the weapon it’s hard not to say something like that. But, I went into that wanting less conversation and more to embarrass Rubio and that was my biggest flaw. (3:00)
On if he would redo his question to Rubio: Certainly, and I even name dropped the murder, which at the time I never really thought about, but looking back it ticks me off so much when people do that because then you’re getting that person’s name out there and making them a celebrity. I mean that’s one of the worst things you see come out of these horrific mass murders is name recognition. These people are very often crying out for some sort of attention and power and entitlement and then you’re making them a household name. I feel in some ways responsible for that. (5:13)
On his plans going forward: This summer when March For Our Lives went on the summer tour that we embarked on I met that person in Texas whose got that semi-automatic weapon because that’s how they like to protect their family. I met the 50 some odd percent of woman who are pro-life, even though I thought it was preposterous that a woman could be pro-life and not pro-choice at the time. I learned that a lot of our issues politically come from a lack of understanding of other perspectives and also the fact that so often young conservatives and young liberals will go into debate, like I said earlier, trying to beat the other one as oppose to come to an agreement…I’m working on some efforts to encourage bipartisanship or at least discussion that is productive and help a lot of people avoid the mistakes that I made. (6:33)
On his current relationship with March for Our Lives: I left the March. I’m off the board. I left the organization and if I thought that my friends and the people I worked with couldn’t do it without me I would not have done that, but alas all of our efforts looking forward looked like they didn’t really need my involvement and while I could have helped it wasn’t crucial. You know what I thought in some of the platforms that I have for only the worst reasons is something I really believe in, because I’m a Spider man fan, and I can tell you with great platform comes great responsibility. I thought it was my responsibility to take all the things I was kicking myself for and to encourage others to avoid it. (8:12)
On his new podcast “Cameron Knows Nothing”: My whole message is I was dropped up as an expert. The whole message was these kids are the real experts. Look, I have some very intelligent friends. Some friends who can intellectually run circles around me, but I’m not the expert in pretty much anything. (9:30)”
What most stands out about what this student said is that he admitted regretting how he attacked Senator Marco Rubio from Florida during the infamous staged CNN town hall where Sheriff Israel took the opportunity to deflect from the fact that his own department failed the students by instead blaming politicians, the NRA and our gun laws. He later went on to add that he is planning to talk to Senator Rubio next month.
Although people are questioning what happened to make him change his tune I don’t think it should be much of a mystery. He is a young student, just like all the rest, and he went through a traumatic experience.
An experience that should have never happened and would have never happened if only the sheriff department would have done their job and seen the shooter was a problem when they were called out to his house 39 times. One of those times he even called the police on himself because he thought he would snap and go on a shooting spree at the school.
Whatever happened to change Kasky’s mind, we need to welcome it and hope the rest start seeing the light through all the hate and propaganda they are spewing.
Here’s the time Kasky asked Senator Rubio if he would stop taking NRA money.
HUGE Message To Kavanaugh Accuser Flying High In The Sky Over Her House
As of today, it is being reported that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford will testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday or Thursday of next week. The details and arrangements are still vague but Judge Kavanaugh is eager to clear his name. I’m eager to see this whole circus end so we can get on with the confirmation process.
Pilot David Siever flew a plane on September 20th over the psychology professor’s house with a giant banner attached that read, “Thank you, Christine, We have your back.” That was a huge message of support for Ford. It would seem there are a lot of women who are supporting her in all of this even though, in my opinion, her credibility is comparable to swiss cheese.
UltraViolet, a women’s rights group paid for the flight and the banner. The plane flew over gathered protesters who were marching to Ford’s home as a show of support for her after she accused Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault. There were approximately three dozen women in the protest group and a few men as well.
This same group had already written a “Dear Christine” letter that many of them signed this week in support of the Palo Alto professor. The group linked arms as they marched in front of her home and chanted, “Protect Christine! Protect Christine.” The rally was cobbled together at the last moment and protesters were mostly comprised of Palo Alto mothers and neighbors showing solidarity for Christine Blasey Ford.
Ford has also been celebrated and supported in the #MeToo movement. She is also allegedly the victim of harassment and death threats. However, her local supporters are all in for her. “We believe Christine,” they chanted. “Her story is our story!”
This particular rally was yet another effort to support Ford after she came forward in an article in the Washington Post to share her identity and her allegations against Kavanaugh.
But what these people don’t address is the fact that she can’t recall the year it happened, where it happened, when it happened, who hosted the party, who was there, who brought her or who took her home. Frankly, I’m not buying it.
Ford is claiming that sometime in the early 1980s, Kavanaugh was “stumbling drunk” when he and a friend forced her into a bedroom at a high school party, then groped her, tried to strip off her clothes and put his hand over her mouth to muffle her screams. One of his friends, Mark Judge, interrupted the assault, she alleges, giving her the chance to flee.
Kavanaugh is denying all of this and says it never happened. So is Mark Judge. Originally, Ford was insisting that before she would testify an FBI investigation had to be done. She changed that and then insisted that Kavanaugh testify first, not be in the room when she testifies, that no attorneys be present and that Mark Judge be subpoenaed to testify.
The Senate Judiciary Committee balked and said that they do not subpoena witnesses. They also pointed out that Kavanaugh should testify after Ford so he can answer charges against him and face his accuser. He also has a right to counsel in all this. Ford has still not said exactly what terms she agrees to for testifying next week.
A candlelight vigil on a Palo Alto street corner is planned for Sunday night. Letters of support are being stuffed into her mailboxes at home and at her office, and a GoFundMe page has been set up to help pay Ford’s legal bills.
Worth noting that this is exactly where we were on Monday morning— without agreeing to a date, time, and terms we are no closer to hearing from Dr Ford then we were when her lawyers said Dr. Ford was willing to testify during their media tour
6 days agohttps://t.co/KUEKdeRegR
— Senator Hatch Office (@senorrinhatch) September 22, 2018
Ford’s actual testimony next week is still very much in doubt:
“Fox News was told that Debra Katz, one of the lawyers representing Ford, requested that a hearing be set for Thursday — a request the Republicans on the committee had initially rejected, offering Wednesday instead.
“Grassley did not immediately respond to the letter, but a senior White House official told Fox News that it represented a request to continue negotiations about the terms on which she testifies without any firm commitment.
“It’s a clever way to push off the vote Monday without committing to appear Wednesday,” the official said.
“Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, who sits on the committee, tweeted that “we are no closer to hearing from Dr. Ford than we were when her lawyers said Dr. Ford was willing to testify during their media tour 6 days ago.'”
I am highly suspicious of this eleventh-hour victim coming forward with an unsubstantiated claim from 36 years ago against Kavanaugh. It seems she has a number of supporters but I would say there are far more out there that have a problem with her story. I guess we will know more when and if she testifies.

Hope the rest start seeing the light!
