Carolina Panthers Player Celebrates Colin Kaepernick with Cleats

Colin Kaepernick

Sticking his finger in the National Football League’s eye, Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid wore cleats celebrating anti-American protest inventor Colin Kaepernick during Monday’s game against New Orleans Saints.

Reid is one of the last NFL players still protesting during the national anthem and was one of the first to take up Kaepernick’s protests back in 2016.

On Monday, Reid wore cleats celebrating Colin Kaepernick’s protests as well as his social justice programs.

Reid was taking advantage of one of the new social justice policies the NFL made with players which allows them to choose a cause for which to advocate. Reid chose to honor his former 49ers teammate, Colin Kaepernick, according to Yahoo! sports.

According to Breitbart Sports:

Reid employed the skills of activist and artist Brandon Odums to design the cleats which Reid wore on Monday. The design is meant as a “tribute to the history of protest” while also flogging Kaepernick’s “Know Your Rights Camp.”

The artwork shows protestors holding signs reading “I know my rights” and “If not us, who? If not now, when?”

It is striking that Reid chose to highlight Kaepernick, especially since the former San Francisco 49er quarterback is suing the league:

Kaepernick turned free agent at the end of the 2016 season after spending the year protesting against the country at every game but found no team interested in signing him either in 2017 or since. Consequently, he filed a “collusion” grievance against the NFL claiming that the coaches, owners, and league officials “colluded” to keep him from pursuing his NFL career.

This was definitely an example of a current player sticking his finger in the league’s eye by celebrating a player who is suing the league for mistreatment.

Beto’s Bizarre and “Witchy” Rituals are Dumbfounding Democrats

Let’s not overlook the fact that O’Rourke also subjected his family to his esoteric gibberish as well.

Beto O'Rourke

The behavior of Beto O’Rourke would the prime fodder for the writers over at Saturday Night Live, if they were ever inclined to take a shot at a liberal politician. No, the folks over at NBC likely won’t be talking about Beto O’Rourke’s whimsical mysticism, or the fact that he believed that eating magical dirt would give him superpowers. That second bit, while certainly a striking and piercing accusation, is absolutely true. O’Rourke, who came up short in his bid to unseat Sen. Cruz, R-Texas, despite raising $80 million for the Senate push, told the story of his earthy snack in a sprawling 3,000-word profile published by The Washington Post. “In January, Beto hit the road, much as his father had done before him, and drew energy from the people he met, and — on one stop in New Mexico he didn’t write about in his blog — by eating New Mexican dirt said to have regenerative powers,” the profile reads. “He brought some home for the family to eat, too.” This shamanic nonsense comes to us just days after O’Rourke’s sprawling interview in Vanity Fair had the 2020 democratic candidate discussing how politics are his “destiny”, and how he was “born to” run for President. Beto’s latest tirade came at the expense of the electoral college – a system of voting that the democrats are increasingly looking to alter. “I think there’s a lot to that. Because you had an election in 2016 where the loser got 3 million more votes than the victor,” O’Rourke said in a video posted online on Tuesday. “It puts some states out of play altogether, they don’t feel like their votes really count. “If we really want everyone to vote, to give them every reason to vote, we have to make sure their…

Ditching the Electoral College is Popular Among Dems…Here’s Why

If you think this is a good idea, you should speak with folks in Northern California and Upstate New York…

electoral college

Of all of the issues that we expected to see arise during the run-up to the 2020 presidential election, one may easily carry with it the most weight. That idea is the abolishment of the electoral college; the system of voting that our nation has utilized since 1804.  Sure, the process can be a bit tedious and tumultuous at times, but, as the President himself explained, there is a very real purpose for this convolution. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1108187855954870272 https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1108190837257764864 The Commander in Chief makes a great point here, and it’s one that the people of Northern California and Upstate New York can attest to well. You see, in those states, the popular vote is used for a number of ballot initiatives and general public decision making.  In both of those states, the liberal population hubs of The Big Apple and the beaches of Southern California completely overwhelms the rest of the state’s far more rural and conservative population.  This means that, proportionally, a tiny fraction of the state is lording over the greater mass of the state on all matters. To some, it sounds a bit like a King in his castle, looking out amongst the vast expanses of farmland in serfdom. For others, the issue is not just the idea of taking away a well-established, tuned, and tested system for voting, but rather the appearance that this move, combined with other liberal pipe dreams, is all due to their poor sportsmanship at the end of the 2016 contest. President Trump had a tweet for that, too. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1108217768187449344
