Al Sharpton

Professional confidence man Al Sharpton has come out swinging at rapper Travis Scott for daring to accept a slot during the Super Bowl halftime show even though other black performers have agreed to boycott because of the league’s actions concerning Colin Kaepernick.

Gossip site TMZ sought out Sharpton who criticized Scott for somehow wanting it “both ways.”

“I think anyone that goes into the halftime show is in effect directly violating those that want to raise the question that the NFL should come to terms with what they have done and continue to do to Colin Kaepernick and those that protest on criminal justice issues,” Sharpton said.

“You can’t tell people to stand for those that take a knee and don’t go to the games and then say, ‘But somebody ought to perform there and entertain.’ You’re drawing TV viewers, you’re bringing supporters, and I think that you can’t have it both ways,” the Tawana Brawley scandalmonger added.

According to Breitbart Sports:

To date, Travis Scott is the only performer willing to join Maroon 5 to play for the upcoming Super Bowl halftime show after a growing list of black performers publicly announced that they would never accept an invitation to play as long as former San Francisco 49ers Colin Kaepernick is left unsigned by any team.

Kaepernick, who invented the protest against the country during the national anthem, turned free agent at the tail of the 2016 season but has since found no NFL team interested in signing him. He has stayed out of the league since the start of the 2017 season, unable to continue his pro football career.

In support of Kaepernick, a number of stars have announced their disinterest in performing at the game including Cardi B, Adele and Jay-Z. Singer Pink also dissed NFL over Kaepernick’s plight.

It will be interesting to see if Scott sticks by his initial choice of accepting the Super Bowl gig or if he will cave in to all the pressure to bail out.

Pelosi Hands Trump A Win, Announces Plan To Pass NAFTA Replacement

Published

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi took a few minutes away from the impeachment fever gripping the House of Representatives to announce that a breakthrough was made on Tuesday concerning negotiations for the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement on trade. The House will vote on a trade deal put together by President Trump that he has been lobbying for Congress to pass for quite some time now. Here’s more from Washington Examiner: “It is infinitely better than what was originally proposed by the administration,” said Pelosi, a California Democrat. House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal, a Massachusetts Democrat, said Democrats are entering the “final stages of text sharing” with other lawmakers “before there is any expedited period of bringing it to the floor.” Neal did not indicate specifically when the House would vote on the deal. The House is set to adjourn for the year on Dec. 20 and lawmakers typically want ample time to review trade deals. Democrats said the accord came after provisions were added addressing labor law enforcement, environmental standards, and prescription drugs, satisfying their members. Neal, the lead Congressional negotiator, stated, “This is a transformative agreement. Our constant emphasis was on enforceability, enforceability, and enforceability, we fixed that.” Democrats went on to say they won the removal of several provisions that would have led to an increase in drug prices. This trade deal is set to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement that was passed back in 1993. This is a major win for the president who has said for years the old agreement was a bad deal for the United States. The new version of the agreement says that 75 percent of a car’s parts must be manufactured in North America to be duty-free, up from the previous 62.5 percent. The deal also says that 40 to…

Woman Protesting With Antifa Rushes Police, Gets Shoved To The Ground

Published

on

Antifa has a well earned reputation for being an aggressive, radical leftist group that likes to get violent during their demonstrations. Numerous stories have come out over the last several years featuring members of Antifa punching and assaulting conservatives at rallies and other egregious acts. Recently, the group held a demonstration in Seattle where the group dressed in black hoodies, wore masks, and then started taunting police officers. Conservative journalist Andy Ngo, himself a victim of violent, radical protesters, covered the insanity. The police were protecting a group of pro-America demonstrators when some of the militants in attendance took it upon themselves to burn a thin blue line American flag while gathered at the base of the statue of John Harte McGraw, Washington’s second governor. A police officer sprayed the flag and put the fire out. One of the militants present shouted at the cop, “What the f*** is wrong with you?” Yet another yelled, “Suck a d**k, you fat motherf***ers!” Here’s more from TheBlaze: Undeterred, the Antifa faithful grabbed the partially burned flag and lit it on fire again — which made them all very happy, including one woman protesting with Antifa, who stood out due to her lack of a mask and the pink accents with her clothing. At another point amid Antifa’s antics, that same woman decked out in pink tried rushing the cops’ bike line. Video shows her running at the officers and getting shoved backward. Now, most folks at this point would acquire some mental clarity and conclude that messing with cops in this way is a bad idea. But this is Antifa we’re talking about, and given that they tend to get away with a quite a bit, the woman naturally ran at the police line again. Her second attempt to rush cops, however,…
