Former NFL Quarterback Colin Kaepernick Just Got Some More Bad News

Somebody get this guy a box of tissues, pronto!

Colin Kaepernick

Colin Kaepernick, the infamous former quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers, has had his dreams of reentering the NFL dashed into a million pieces once again, as the Seattle Seahawks have reportedly lost interest in signing him to the team.

Kaepernick’s claim to fame is being a raging social justice warrior who launched the whole “take a knee” movement that spread like a bad rash all over the NFL, with teams disrespecting their home country by kneeling during the National Anthem. This was said to be a form of protest against police brutality and racial equality, though that’s questionable.

The move led to a massive nationwide boycott which severely damaged not only television ratings, but game attendance too.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Wednesday night, “Colin Kaepernick and his attorneys took depositions in his collusion grievance from Seahawks’ HC Pete Carroll today and from GM John Schneider on Wednesday, per source. Seahawks expressed interest in Kaepernick this off-season, but he no longer appears to be in their plans.”

The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback has nobody but himself to blame for being unsigned. The Seahawks were willing to give him a fair shot if agreed to stop kneeling, and he reportedly wouldn’t do it. Again, Kaepernick should look in the mirror if he’s looking for somebody to blame for not being on a team.

What Kaepernick and many others around the country fail to realize is that the NFL is a company, a business. They want to be financially successful, and despite not coming out with an official response to the man’s on field antics, it’s been clear from the get-go that what he’s doing is really bad for their bottom line.

The vast majority of people who tune in to a football game are doing so to watch the sport they enjoy, to leave behind the real world for just a few hours and be lost in the glory of competition. The last thing they want is yet more politics. Politics has already oversaturated every facet of existence, sports were the final frontier, the last safe haven as it were.

The enjoyment of professional football comes in the form of being part of a fandom with others who love the same team. This issue has caused a lot of division among football fans and has really strained fandom for many individuals.

Kaepernick didn’t win hearts and minds to his cause, he just stirred up more strive and division, while also managing to explode his career.

Now that’s he’s been rejected by the Seahawks, the chances of seeing him in the NFL are very small. Given the negative impact he’s had, it’s safe to say that’s probably for the best.

Internet Giant’s Election Meddling Exposed by New Research

This is the sort of power that we wouldn’t grant to even the most benevolent or pragmatic person, so why has America allowed a corporation such gravity?

Google

While the left decried the possibility of Russian “election meddling” until they were blue in the face back in 2016, their friends over at Google were taking lessons. You see, the internet itself exists parallel to our “real world” in many ways.  We use this channel of information often for convenience, paying bills and ordering goods and services through the click of a mouse or the tap of a finger.  Data is stored, packed, sent, received, and acted upon just as though we had committed these acts in the real world, leading many to tout the internet as some sort fo “new reality”. This is dangerous thinking, folks, given that the internet itself is a privately controlled space.  Enormous tech companies such as Google and Facebook are the de facto kings of the world wide web, steering more traffic between them than outside of their purview.  This has granted companies such as these an extraordinarily precarious grip on public knowledge and what was once the freedom of information. Just how monopolistic are these private companies?  A new research study shows that Google actually influenced the American 2018 midterms, flipping congressional districts. New research from psychologist and search engine expert Dr. Robert Epstein shows that biased Google searches had a measurable impact on the 2018 midterm elections, pushing tens of thousands of votes towards the Democrat candidates in three key congressional races, and potentially millions more in races across the country. The study, from Epstein and a team at the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology (AIBRT), analyzed Google searches related to three highly competitive congressional races in Southern California. In all three races, the Democrat won — and Epstein’s research suggests that Google search bias may have tipped them over the edge. The research follows a previous study conducted…

Ocasio-Cortez Continues Radical Leftist Lurch with Gun-Grab Propaganda

An armed American public is certainly capable of “killing people”, as AOC tweeted, but if those people are a hostile, authoritarian force, her proposal would sentence the American people to death…or worse.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

There is little doubt that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is pushing the democratic party hard to the left. The 28 year old bartender-turned-Congresswoman has been a left-leaning fireball of vitriol from the moment that she stepped onto the national political scene, often gaslighting herself by playing up her radical nature on social media in order to combat the “trolls” that she so often demeans. With 2020 on the horizon, and one of the leading contenders for the democratic nomination already having admitted to eating “regenerative”, magical dirt, the sort of insanity that AOC injects into Washington DC may seem par for the course. The reality is, however, that it is dangerous. With Ocasio-Cortez capturing the imaginations of young democrats everywhere, 2020 candidates will likely need to appease her own fringe base in order to gather the necessary votes to make an impact on the race.  And that means, unfortunately, that the young Congresswoman’s anti-constitutional stance on firearms could go mainstream. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) suggests Congress should ban “semiautos, & high cap mags.” She also called for a ban on bump stocks, which the Department of Justice banned in December 2018. AOC was reacting to a bizarre incident at an Indiana school where teachers were shot by police with air pistols during an active shooter drill. https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1108908752865054720 AOC’s call to ban “semiautos” is particularly disturbing, considering that a vast majority of all weapons in America are semi-automatic, meaning that one pull of the trigger will send one round through the barrel. Furthermore, the insinuation that guns could be used to “kill people” isn’t new and horrific, despite how bluntly AOC included the phrase in her tweet. We must remember that the Second Amendment, and the firearms that it protects, are the nation’s insurance policy against tyranny from both foreign and domestic sources.  Disarming the American people, even…
