Colin Kaepernick

Rapper Travis Scott defied a boycott of the Super Bowl set up by a list of black performers and now reports say that the beneficiary of the boycott, former NFL player Colin Kaepernick, is not at all happy with the rapper’s decision to work with the NFL.

According to a number of reports, former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is upset that rapper Travis Scott decided to to perform at the upcoming Super Bowl.

Despite the reports, Scott claims that Kaepernick “respected” his decision to play this year’s halftime show.

A long list of black performers, including Cardi B, Rihanna, Jay-Z, Meek Mills, and many others, announced a boycott of the Super Bowl to show support for Colin Kaepernick, who was benched by the league after the 2016 season during which he invented the anti-American protest as the national anthem played. Kaepernick in now suing the league claiming the league and its owners “colluded” to keep him from continuing his pro football career.

Boycott or no, Scott bucked the group of black entertainers and signed up to perform alongside rock band Maroon 5.

Scott claimed that he required the NFL to make a large donation to a social justice cause as a prerequisite for his performance. However, Scott has not reported the amount of the donation nor to what social justice group that donation was to be given.

Scott also took the step of having a conversation with Kaepernick to explain why he was taking the Super Bowl gig.

Per Variety:

Scott and Kaepernick had at least one phone conversation before the rapper confirmed his Super Bowl appearance, sources tell Variety. A source close to Scott said that while the two did not necessarily agree, they emerged from the conversation with mutual respect and understanding, with the rapper taking the stance that everyone makes a statement in their own way and he felt that the money going toward Dream Corps, combined with the platform provided by the Super Bowl, will do some good. The source also said that Scott would not confirm his performance until the donation was locked in.

This is not the same story people close to Kaepernick are telling.

According to Kaepernick’s activist girlfriend, Nessa Diab, Scott is full of it.

Diab, a California radio personality and loud social justice advocate, jumped to her Twitter account to refute the claims that there was mutual respect between Kaepernick and Scott.

Diab also posted a message to Instagram divulging more of her thoughts on Scott’s actions:

1. Artists don’t get paid to perform at “the big game.” These performers are CHOOSING to do this for a ‘look.’

2. The fact that many people have told him don’t support the organization that has blackballed [Kaepernick] for standing up for people, and he still does it anyways, shows more about him than anything else.

AND! If someone wants to work with the opposition, then that’s on them, BUT DO NOT have your team lie to reporters to insinuate Colin was okay with anyone working against him. PERIOD!

The former San Francisco 49er quarterback himself has not spoken publicly about the discussion with the rapper, but his girlfriend’s messages are telling, nonetheless.

For his part, Scott added a statement about the issue: “I back anyone who takes a stand for what they believe in. I know being an artist that it’s in my power to inspire. So before confirming the Super Bowl Halftime performance, I made sure to partner with the NFL on this important donation. I am proud to support Dream Corps and the work they do that will hopefully inspire and promote change.”

The 2019 Super Bowl will be played on February 3 after the last two wild card games are played this coming weekend to determine which two teams will meet for the championship.

Watch: Bernie Supporters Intimidate & Harass Dem Candidate, Swarm Her Car – ‘Block Her In’

Just brutal!

Bernie Sanders supporters are the kindest, most gracious human beings on the face of the planet – said nobody ever. Time and again, these people have shown that they are dangerous. Here’s just the latest example of their extremism, via Washington Examiner: A group of Sen. Bernie Sanders supporters attempted to intimidate an Illinois Democratic congressional candidate into supporting the socialist’s agenda. The Vermont senator’s supporters on Monday live-streamed their activity on social media while Betsy Dirksen Londrigan concluded a campaign appearance in Champaign, Illinois. Following the event, the group challenged Londrigan to debate Illinois socialist candidate Stefanie Smith.

From Daily Wire: It turns out, the less you pay attention to politics, the more likely you are to support the socialist option for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who has jumped between 5 and 6 points in the polls since Biden entered the race.

He makes it clear that he’s a full-on socialist and he’s not ashamed of it – for whatever reason. If president, the 2020 hopeful says private insurance companies will go bye-bye and you will certainly pay more in taxes. Bernie noted, “What Medicare For All does is it eliminates your private health insurance…premiums. You’re not going to be paying that. You’re not going to be paying co-payments. You’re not going to be paying deductibles. …Will you be paying more in taxes? Yes you…

New Rasmussen Poll Shows Trump Beating Bernie By 7 Points In Head-to-Head Matchup

Great news for the country…

For America to keep on winning, President Trump must remain in office. If implemented, Bernie Sanders’ policies would wreak havoc on the United States in what would most likely be an unprecedented fashion. Based on a new poll from Rasmussen, conservatives’ fears can subside for now. Trump beats Bernie head-to-head. Here’s the scoop, via Breitbart: President Trump beats Democrat-Socialist Bernie Sanders by 50 percent to 43 percent, according to a poll released Wednesday by Rasmussen Reports. Rasmussen, one of the most accurate pollsters of the 2016 presidential election, surveyed 1,000 likely voters February 24-25. This poll has a margin of error of 3 points. Trump will need every single vote he can get next November. That goes without saying, obviously. But it’s even more true when Hollywood and the mainstream media continues to campaign hard against him. Two major polls from November 2019 have released some stats that will have Democrats retreating to their safe spaces like nobody’s business. It isn’t just good news for Trump, it’s great news for Trump. https://twitter.com/bennyjohnson/status/1198652943534301186 https://twitter.com/Rasmussen_Poll/status/1198300483263369229?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1198300483263369229&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F11%2Fhuge-black-support-for-president-donald-trump-hits-34-in-both-emerson-and-rasmussen-polls%2F This quick example should show every Democrat why it’s not okay to support the Democrat Socialist senator from Vermont in 2020.
