NFL Player Doesn’t Care, Says He Will Continue to Kneel for National Anthem Before Games

Oh, good. This again…

Eric Reid was one of the original anthem kneelers, along with Colin Kaepernick.

In fact, they were both on the San Francisco 49ers at the time.

Now a member of the Carolina Panthers, Reid says he will continue to kneel for the national anthem before games.

From Newsmax:

Saying that he feels treatment of African Americans is “going backward,” Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid said he will keep taking a knee during the National Anthem before games.

Reid, who joined the Panthers three weeks into the 2018 season, kneeled before every game last season, although no Panthers teammates joined him.

One of the first things that XFL football league owner Vince McMahon said of his new professional football league is that protests during the national anthem would be banned. But now, it has been confirmed that McMahon also tried to convince anthem protester and well-known anti-American Colin Kaepernick to join his new league.

Insiders at the XFL are now confirming that league officials worked to sign the notorious anthem protester despite launching with proclamations that there would be no kneeling during the national anthem at its games.

An XFL spokesman confirmed to Sporting News that the league reached out to Kaepernick last year in an effort to sign him.

The news may not come as a huge shock as XFL chief Vince McMahon had already opened the door to Kaepernick during his early press conferences about his plans for the resurgent XFL.

“Anyone who plays the game of football well and meets our criteria in terms of quality of human being, why not?” McMahon told reporters last January when asked about including Kaepernick. “As long as everyone abides by the rules as laid down.”

But even in January, McMahon warned that there would 100 percent be no protesting during the national anthem in his league. Somehow it seems unlikely that the one man who is famous more for his protesting than for his playing would agree not to protest if signed by the XFL.

Still, according to Sporting News, Kaepernick did discuss coming onboard the XFL. But, like his wild offer to the AAF, it appears that Kaepernick was demanding a $20 million per season payout.

By some accounts, McMahon is will to pay between $45,000 and $200,000 a year for his players, so at $20 million, there is quite a gap between what McMahon is offering and what Kaepernick is demanding.

Jobless Claims Fall Below A Million, Breaking 20-Week Streak

Published

on

We have more excellent news on the economic front as the number of new applications received for unemployment benefits has dropped to 963,000, according to reports published by the Labor Department. This breaks the streak of 20 consecutive weeks that saw those figures above a million. Economists had projected this week’s numbers would be somewhere around 1.1 million. This is fantastic. Our nation is finally starting to recover a bit from the coronavirus, though you’d never guess that was the case by the way the mainstream media is covering the story. Here’s more information from The Washington Examiner: The total number of people claiming jobless benefits in all programs for the week ending July 25 was 28.3 million, a decrease of over 3 million from the previous week. For comparison, there were 1.7 million people claiming benefits for all programs in the same week in 2019. While jobless claims remain at historic highs, Mark Hamrick, a senior economic analyst at Bankrate.com, noted that they have fallen in places particularly affected by the coronavirus. Florida saw a drop of over 23,000 in initial claims between the week ending Aug. 8 and the week prior. Georgia and Texas saw decreases of over 11,000 each over the same time period. Back in March, toward the end of the month, jobless numbers hit a staggering 6.9 million. Those numbers began to drop in May with the reopening of the economy in many states around the country, but hadn’t dropped below a million until now. The recovery has been a bit slow paced, but that’s to be expected. Most places around the nation have been very cautious about reopening after the shutdowns earlier this year. It only makes sense that as things happen in phases, slowly over time, so too would the economic recovery. Here’s…

#SayHisName Trends On Social Media After Lack Of Media Coverage On Murder Of 5-Year-Old Cannon Hinnant

Published

on

As of this writing, the vast majority of mainstream media news outlets have yet to run any kind of coverage on the brutal Sunday evening murder of a five-year-old North Carolina boy named Cannon Hinnant. Hinnant was killed by 25-year-old Darius Sessoms, which has led to hashtag #SayHisName to trend on social media Thursday morning. Sessoms is a black man and lived next door to the victim’s father. Sessoms walked up to the boy, who is white, and shot him in the head at point-blank range, right in front of his two sisters, one seven, the other eight. It’s sick and disgusting to see the mainstream media ignore this story, simply because the shooter is black and it doesn’t fit the racially charged narrative they are pushing at the moment. Murder is murder. Evil is evil. It doesn’t matter what size, shape, or color it comes in. Here are more details from The Daily Wire: CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC, and MSNBC, as of Thursday morning, have yet to cover the attack. Fox News has covered the tragic news. Some have argued that the lack of coverage is because of the races of the victim and the alleged murderer. On Tuesday, author and Daily Wire podcast host Matt Walsh brought attention to the murder via Twitter, using the now-viral phrase, “say his name.” “Say his name. 5 year old Cannon Hinnant was executed in cold blood while riding his bike,” posted Walsh. “The accused killer is Darius Sessoms. He allegedly walked up to the boy and shot him dead in front of his sisters.” “Reverse the races and this is the only thing anyone talks about for a month,” Walsh said. https://twitter.com/MattWalshBlog/status/1293208169339133953 People have grown frustrated about the lack of coverage, which is why the hashtag has taken off like it…
