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.

Howard Stern Says Donald Trump Secretly ‘Loves’ Mike Bloomberg: ‘He Knows How Strong The Guy Is’

Published

Radio shock jock Howard Stern should probably stick to the same old tired oversexualized schtick he used to discuss on his program because his attempts at doing political commentary leave a whole lot to be desired, as you’ll see for yourself when you read his comments about President Trump and Michael Bloomberg. According to Stern, Trump, who has been feuding with the president during a very heated Democratic Party presidential primary, secretly loves Bloomberg. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “I’ve talked to Donald a million times privately about Bloomberg. We both agree that he was one of the best f—ing mayors on the planet,” Stern said Monday on his SiriusXM radio show. “Donald loves Bloomberg,” he added. “That’s why he doesn’t want him running.” Trump has escalated his attacks on Bloomberg in recent weeks, mocking his height and debate performance as the Democrat pours hundreds of millions of dollars into his campaign. But Stern asserted it’s all a farce. “He knows how strong the guy is,” Stern said. “He loves him. We all love him. Donald would even say, ‘He’s better than I am.'” Stern went on to say that if Bloomberg cinched the nomination it would result in a “hell of a debate” between the two billionaires, going so far as to say that people who voted for Trump would vote for Bloomberg. As of right now, Bloomberg is polling in third place, though he is not participating in the primaries due to be held before Super Tuesday.

President Trump Rips Into CNN’s Jim Acosta After Being Accused Of Lying: ‘Worst Record In The History Of Broadcasting’

Published

President Trump, the world’s foremost expert in counterpunching against the leftist mainstream media, recently came out with fists of fury flying — in a proverbial sense — against CNN’s Jim Acosta after the reporter accused him of lying. During an afternoon press conference during his time in India, Acosta asked President Trump if he would make a pledge not to accept foreign assistance in the 2020 election, to which the president stated, “I want no help from any country.” Here’s how the rest of the incident played out via The Washington Examiner: “I haven’t been given help from any country. And if you see what CNN, your wonderful network said, I guess they apologized in a way for — didn’t they apologize for saying certain things that weren’t true?” the president inquired of Acosta, referring to CNN’s coverage of Russian interference in the 2016 election. “Mr. President, I think our record on delivering the truth is a lot better than yours sometimes, if you don’t mind me saying,” Acosta said to Trump, who fired back at the anchor’s history of reporting. “Your record is so bad, you ought to be ashamed of yourself. You probably have the worst record in the history of broadcasting,” Trump said. The president and CNN have a track record of hostility with one another, something that is completely understandable given the fact that CNN and other left-wing networks have dedicated their air time to pushing narratives that aren’t fully factual in a bid to undermine the current administration. Trump, unlike previous presidents, isn’t afraid to dish out what he gets first, which is one reason so many people love him. The question now is when will Acosta learn to stop being so hostile and actually do his job?
