President Obama spoke out about NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s ongoing protest of the National Anthem on Monday. Because, what else would you do at a gathering aimed at the promotion of international financial stability?
It’s no surprise that the left is on a ceaseless and scandalous search to uncover, and encourage, gay athletes to “come out.”
ESPN has officially lost it. On Monday, while discussing the Colin Kaepernick statement that America oppresses “black people and people of color,” ESPN talk show host and college football analyst Paul Finebaum had the audacity to offer the opinion that he doesn’t believe that “this country oppresses black people.”
On Thursday, pictures of 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick wearing socks depicting cops as pigs emerged.
You know you’re about to read a truly amazing article when it references “black Jesus” and “the plantation,” by the first paragraph. NFL legend Jerry Rice was accused of "urging Colin Kaepernick to stand up like a good Negro and pledge allegiance to the flag before he causes trouble on the plantation." It ended with "stick to shutting up, Rice."
The left’s quest to establish disloyalty as patriotism continues, unabated.
Reading Mike Florio’s commentary in Pro Football Talk about Donald Trump’s response to Colin Kaepernick, one could be forgiven for thinking that Florio was excitedly waiting for Donald Trump to comment.
The mainstream media selectively highlighted parts of Colin Kaepernick’s Sunday press conference comments, in order to shield Hillary Clinton. As pointed out by Fox Sports’ Clay Travis, Kaepernick took a massive shot at Hillary Clinton in that presser that has gone virtually uncovered.
Colin Kaepernick spoke to the media in the 49ers facility on Sunday, discussing the intricacies of Chaos Theory and Abel’s Binomial Theorem. Just kidding. He elaborated on the reasons for his protest, and calling America racist.
If you’re waiting for the NFL Players Association to step in, in the wake of the Colin Kaepernick sit-protest during the National Anthem on Friday night, and remind players that they are NFL players first and foremost, not politicians. Or, at the very least, that hugely controversial political statements would have been much better had they occurred in June, as opposed to two weeks before the start of the season, you’re about to be mighty disappointed.
Not everyone is okay with Colin Kaepernick’s chosen form of protest, over what he perceives as “oppression of black people and people of color."
San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the National Anthem in their preseason game against the Green Bay Packers on Friday night. “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses Black people and people of color,” Kaepernick told NFL Media in an exclusive interview after the game against Green Bay.
Earlier this week, we brought you the story of Russell Wilson’s wedding planner, and her statement that the Wilsons scrapped North Carolina as a potential wedding destination, due to the state’s HB2 law regarding transgender bathrooms. Enclosed in that story was my fervent hope that the wedding planner got it all wrong, and that the proudly Christian Wilson had decided to forego the Tarheel State for some other reason. Well…that didn’t happen.
How can over 90% of Native Americans be wrong? Well, according to USA Today, it’s when they say that the word Redskin is not a slur. Badly needing a comeback to the Washington Post poll in May, where American Indians resoundingly rejected the idea of the term ‘Redskin’ as a slur, USA Today decided to seek out an expert to tell American Indians just how silly and wrong they are
Pro Football Talk gleefully reported on Monday, that Russell Wilson and his fiancée Ciara decided to ditch the idea of having their wedding in North Carolina. Why is that cause for glee?
It’s been a rough week for Louisiana, with a horrific flood that left thousands homeless. An event so moving it prompted the lefties in the mainstream media to make virtually no appeals to President Obama --for days-- to visit the disaster area. Unlike in 2005 where, according to the media, President Bush was doing his level best to intentionally drown the 9th ward.
Bill Simmons never promised to confine his HBO Show, Any Given Wednesday, to sports and sports alone. He also never promised to discuss politics with both conservative and liberal views represented. Like many shows, it's all liberals.
According to the Daily Mail, the left and the Obama Administration may have taken their war on the Redskins a tad too far.
