Two Players Who Kneeled For The Anthem Just Got Sickening Personal Surprise From Kaepernick

Published

on

In case you were wondering, there are still NFL players out there kneeling during the National Anthem. The league has effectively decided to take action against the kneeling players… by not taking action. And so goes the NFL as it plunges into a probable death spiral.

Dolphins teammates Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson are two players that are still kneeling. They were the only two on their team to kneel during the National Anthem on the NFL’s opening Sunday faceoff. These are guys that Colin Kaepernick calls his brothers.

Kaepernick wasted no time in thanking these two disrespectful players on social media. He gave them a sickening personal surprise – an attaboy. “My Brothers (Stills) and (Wilson) continue to show their unwavering strength by fighting for the oppressed,” Kaepernick said in his tweet. “They have not backed down, even when attacked and intimidated. … Love is at the root of our resistance.” Gag worthy.

Kaepernick started this whole mess of radical activism when he was still with the 49ers in 2016 when he knelt during the National Anthem to protest police brutality and social injustice in America. What he did was start a movement by those looking for a reason to hate America, police officers, the military and first responders.

Kaepernick could not even get a job after he left the NFL until Nike came along and decided to make him the face of their “Just Do It” campaign. Now, he’s making millions for being a social justice warrior who embodies the hatred of all things American. Kaepernick is suing the NFL nevertheless for collusion.

Kaepernick’s message via Nike, “Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything,” is hypocritical in the extreme. It mocks the true sacrifice of military veterans and police officers who literally gave it all by laying down their lives for us. Kaepernick hasn’t sacrificed anything.

From ABC News:

“On Sunday, Kaepernick’s message got through to his friends in Miami.

“I know he has our back,” Stills said. “Really, there has been a huge difference between when we first started protesting and now. A lot of people are reaching out and supporting us, so I really appreciate that. To everybody out there … let’s keep doing our best to make positive change and have these conversations and make our country a better place.”

“While Stills and Wilson were kneeling during the anthem, teammate Robert Quinn raised his fist. Niners receiver Marquise Goodwin did the same at San Francisco’s game at Minnesota. In Los Angeles, Chargers left tackle Russell Okung raised his fist. Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas and linebacker Brandon Marshall, and Seahawks linemen Duane Brown and Quinton Jefferson, retreated to their respective tunnels while the anthem played.

“At the peak of the anthem protests, as many as 200 players would partake. On most weeks last year, the Seahawks led the way with the most players doing something to make a statement. Though that number had fallen to 2 to start 2018, Brown wasn’t worried.

“I made my decision. That was my decision,” he said. “I wasn’t paying attention to see what other teams or other players are doing.”

“The NFL briefly had a policy in place in May regarding the anthem but rescinded it after the players union filed a grievance, which sent the league to the negotiating table with the union. Those talks are ongoing. Brown said he hasn’t heard any word from the union dissuading player protests during the anthem.

“I don’t think that would be the best idea to try to get people to move on from it,” he said. “The country hasn’t moved on from it, so I’m not going to move on from it, either.'”

President Trump hasn’t given up on this and is still tweeting over their disrespect and linking their low ratings for Thursday night’s opener between Atlanta and Philadelphia – which were the lowest ratings for an opener since 2008 – to players who refuse to stand for the anthem. “If the players stood proudly for our Flag and Anthem, and it is all shown on broadcast, maybe ratings could come back? Otherwise worse!” Trump tweeted.

The president is, of course, right about this but the NFL is as tone-deaf as Nike and in the end, this is going to bite them in the you-know-what.

Both CBS and Fox, which carried Sunday afternoon’s games, have said they did not plan on televising the anthem. Personally, I think that is a huge mistake as well. Like many Americans, I have since sworn off football. But if I were going to watch, I’d want to know who was kneeling so I could act accordingly.

NBC did show the anthem on Thursday night but not before Sunday night’s Bears-Packers game, and no players knelt or protested in other ways. That even included Malcolm Jenkins of the Eagles. Last season, he raised his fist during the anthem. During pregame warmups, he wore a shirt that read “Ca$h bail = poverty trap.”

Jenkins, who is a founder of the Players Coalition which was formed to tackle issues similar to those Kaepernick is concerned about, said he would like to move the focus away from the anthem.

“I think there’s a huge need for us to turn the attention to not only the issues but what players are actually doing in their communities to promote change,” he said. “We’re trying to move past the rhetoric of what’s right or what’s wrong in terms of the anthem, and really focus on the systematic issues that are plaguing our communities.”

This season is going to be the toughest one yet for the NFL. Fans are heading for the exits by the droves. Like Nike, the NFL just blew it.

Simone Biles Speaks Out After Interim USA Gymnastics President Blasts Nike and Kaepernick

Published

* By

Political correctness is a severe cancer in this world. I’m so tired of people apologize for something that needs no apology. If you are going to speak out about something…don’t apologize.

Don’t worry Simone Biles, it’s not like people are entitled to their opinion or that are shills for Big Corporations like dictating how everyone should think.

Dear Simone, stick to being a gymnast. Go on and keep making your money from a fascist company.

From Western Journal:

USA Gymnastics has found itself mired in perpetual controversy in recent years

The snowball began rolling in earnest when the horrific allegations of sexual abuse against team doctor Larry Nassar surfaced in 2015.

Obviously, Nassar’s actions are unforgivable and he deserves every last second of what is effectively a life sentence in prison.

After taking care of Nassar, the hounds of justice set their sights on USA Gymnastics itself. Any organization that could have been so unaware of the horrors taking place right under its nose deserve the accompanying scrutiny.

Former USA Gymnastics president Steve Penny was forced to resign by the USOC after his horrible mishandling of the Nassar scandal.

His replacement, Kerry Perry, also ended up being forced to resign after her leadership was questioned by USOC.

Now, Perry’s replacement, Mary Bono, has also found herself in controversy, though nothing as serious as the last two.

Bono, a former Republican congresswoman in California, was barely on the job when a month-old tweet of hers resurfaced.

“Playing in a charity golf tournament raising for our nation’s Special Forces operators and their families. Unfortunately, had these shoes in my bad. Luckily I had a marker in my bag too,” Bono said in a since-deleted tweet.

The accompanying picture showed her using a black marker to hide the Nike logo on a shoe.

Regardless of how you feel about Nike’s divisive ad featuring Colin Kaepernick, Bono is more than entitled to her opinion. Yes, she put Nike, and by extension Kaepernick, on blast for the latter’s rhetoric. But she’s hardly exclusive in her feelings. Bono is just one of many Americans who feel that Kaepernick’s anthem protests were disrespectful to the flag, the military and the police.

While Bono is obviously allowed to voice her opinion, she unfortunately also drew the ire of her organization’s premiere athlete, Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles.

“Don’t worry, it’s not like we needed a smarter usa gymnastics president or any sponsors or anything,” Biles wrote in a blistering response tweet prefaced by a “mouth drop.”

While USA Gymnastics hasn’t had a team sponsor since late 2017, Biles is personally sponsored by Nike, according to ESPN.

Perhaps realizing that Biles is the one gymnast she cannot afford to alienate, Bono promptly deleted the tweet and issued an apology.

“I regret the post and respect everyone’s views & fundamental right to express them. This doesn’t reflect how I will approach my position @USAGym I will do everything I can to help build, w/ the community, an open, safe & positive environment,” Bono said in her apology tweet.

It would be nice to think that this will be the final controversy USA Gymnastics will have to deal with for a while. But if recent history is any indication, that seems almost impossible.

Transgender Steamrolls Biological Women to Win World Cycling Championship

Dear Women, how do you like your world now? This is just another great thing brought to us from political correctness. Look at what the democrats have done to this world.

This is absolutely ridiculous and a affront to women and women’s sports.

From Louder With Crowder:

One of the up-and-coming trends on the left is trannies getting a stranglehold on sports. Gender-bending guys beating the bejeezus out of ladies in MMA. Transitioning girls on the juice competing against girls not on ‘roids. All in a days work for loopy lefties.

Now, there’s guys lapping the ladies in world championship bike races:

A biological male who identifies as a transgender woman won a women’s world championship cycling event on Sunday.

Rachel McKinnon, a professor at the College of Charleston, won the women’s 35-39 age bracket at the 2018 UCI Masters Track Cycling World Championships in Los Angeles.

McKinnon celebrated the victory on Twitter, writing: “First transgender woman world champion…ever.”

“We cannot have a woman legally recognized as a trans woman in society, and not be recognized that way in sports,” McKinnon told USA Today.

“Focusing on performance advantage is largely irrelevant because this is a rights issue. We shouldn’t be worried about trans people taking over the Olympics. We should be worried about their fairness and human rights instead.”

In other words, screw biology. Let’s make all our decisions based on feels instead.

There’s a reason why we have divisions and weight classes in sports. Otherwise, 250-pound ex-cons named Butch would be getting into the octagon with 5’4” soccer moms who “thought this would be fun.” Divisions and weight classes are there to make sure nobody has an unfair advantage. Like a guy in lady clothes steamrolling over biologically inferior females on a bicycle.

Yep, we have to completely ignore the bulge in “her” tights and herald her as the peak of female athleticism. Because “rights.” The real women who gave it their all and pedaled their keisters off will just have to deal with it. Pathetic.
