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.

Tom Arnold Threatened To Cut Off Trump’s Head – Realizes Big Mistake Too Late
The GOP just came out with an election ad that depicts violence from the left. Keeping with that message, actor Tom Arnold just proved how true it is.
You have to wonder what’s going through the minds of Hollywood Democrats who, after all of President Trump’s successes, still go on wild rants & even threaten him physically. Do they even live in the same world that we do? Too much cocaine maybe.
The Gateway Pundit reported that:
“Tom Arnold issued a thinly veiled threat to President Trump over the weekend.
The washed-up far-left actor is very vocal about his hatred for President Trump but he took it to the next level this weekend.
Tom Arnold got triggered over president Trump’s recent comment at a Montana rally wherein he made a joke about Rep. Gianforte body slamming a liberal journalist.
First, Tom Arnold challenged President Trump to a fight at “any rally” between now and the midterms.
“I say put up or shut up @realDonaldTrump Me vs You. For America. First body slam wins. Any Rally. Any Time. Between now & the midterms,” Tom Arnold said in a tweet Friday.

Tom Arnold said, “I’m pretty fat myself, but yeah I’d kick his ass buddy” in response to a Twitter user who said “Tom, he outweighs you by about 300 lbs, but i would still bet on you.”
Tom Arnold then took his rhetoric and threats to the next level when he responded to a Twitter user who said Kathy Griffin should officiate the fight between him and Trump.
“Next time Kathy won’t be holding his fake head!” Tom Arnold said referring to Kathy Griffin’s Trump beheading photoshoot. (screenshot of tweet below in case of deletion)
You asked him to fight you, and responded with “next time Kathy Griffin won’t be holding his fake head”, which suggested you would kill him in your proposed fight @SecretService pic.twitter.com/Mn3A9iOSRG

At the time of this publication, the threatening tweet is still on Twitter–Trump-haters can tweet vile threats to President Trump and his supporters without fear of reprisal.
Twitter never takes action against celebrity accounts that tweet threats to Trump.
Peter Fonda previously called for President Trump’s 11-year-old son Barron to be kidnapped and put in a cage with pedophiles and Twitter took zero disciplinary action against Fonda.
In contrast, Trump supporters are banned and suspended from Twitter on a daily basis without explanation.”
Loudmouth LaVar Ball Makes Nasty Announcement About Trump And His Supporters – BAD Move!
President Trump is known to have detractors and those who wish him ill. It has almost become a competitive sport within the mainstream media as well as the athletic and entertainment industry. Which is why the comments of LaVar Ball, a former pro-National Football League, and National Basketball League player should not shock you one bit. But it should surely disgust you. Even if there are those who do not like the president, the least they can do is provide him basic respect and decency. However, all of that is missing in Ball’s recent comments.
Total Pro Sports reported,
“If there’s one person who knows all about the controversy surrounding the President, it’s LaVar Ball. The CEO of Big Baller Brand had an infamous run-in with the current President of the United States when his middle son got himself arrested for stealing in China. There just might be another run-in brewing. A few days ago, Trump tweeted that Don Lemon was the “Dumbest man on television” that made LeBron James look smart, which “was hard to do.” That brought about so much criticism in the days following, especially after the Los Angeles Lakers superstar had opened his new I Promise school. In a recent interview with TMZ, Ball outlined what some of the reasons were when asked whether Trump is racist.
“Do I think he’s racist? Yes, he’s racist. Everybody know that. Everybody knows that. That’s not a secret. It’s not a secret. If you’re bothering a lot of black folks, I’m going to say you’re racist. If you’re bothering a lot Hispanics, I’m going to say you’re racist. If you messing with everybody but whoever is not your kind, whoever is your kind you’re not messing with, I call you racist if you like that. That’s easy to spot out.”
Ball, a former athlete, is now a media personality and businessman with three sons who all play professional basketball. One for the Los Angeles Lakers, one who played on scholarship at UCLA, and one for the Los Angeles Ballers. He serves as the Chief Executive Officer of his sports apparel company known as Big Baller Brand while he simultaneously founded the Junior Basketball Association (JBA).
However, in the past few years Ball has made media headlines all over the world for his controversial and outrageous statements. He claimed that one of his son’s Lonzo is better than world-renowned basketball player Stephen Curry. At the same time, he also alleged that he could beat Michael Jordan in a one-on-one basketball game. Since then he has received praise and criticism, and his remarks have led to television appearances which have received major attention from high profile sports media outlets.
But it was his problems with President Trump that has been getting him into hot water. Ball’s son was one of the UCLA students who was detained for shoplifting in a high-end shopping center in Shanghai, China. The players were accused by police of shoplifting high-end Louis Vuitton sunglasses at a store in the mall. After President Trump and his administration made a plea to the Chinese government to release them from their charges they were set free.
President Trump took to social media to say that the students were headed to jail and if it were not for his intervention they would still be there. Furthermore, that despite what he did for them he did not think they would say thank you. Ball tweeted back a response which insinuated that President Trump did nothing to help Ball’s son and teammates get out of Chinese prison. When Ball appeared on CNN with Chris Cuomo shortly thereafter he still refused to thank the president.
President Trump responded by calling Ball a poor man’s version of Don King and calling him an ungrateful fool. A short while later, Ball’s son and his teammates were suspended indefinitely even after their public thank you where they expressed gratitude to the president. Ball continued to double down, refusing to thank him even after some time had passed.
It is very clear that Ball is highly ungrateful. President Trump hit it right on the head, there is no doubt about it. Much like other Hollywood entertainers, politicians, and detractors who trash the president Ball’s bad move will likely lead to him getting the Trump curse. One where public figures trash the president and as a result lose their career, lose notoriety and all around lose the entire situation. Ball needs a training in manners and perhaps his fall from grace will be the life lesson he so desperately needs.
