OH MY GAHHHH….

Anthem-kneeling ex-quarterback Colin Kaepernick is back in the news.

Because of his close ties with Nike (remember that “sacrifice” campaign he did?), Colin got the shoe and apparel giant to pull their Fourth of July-themed shoes before they went on sale.

Because all it takes is just one social justice warrior to ruin the fun for everyone, these days.

From Fox News:

Nike nixed the released of the Air Max 1 USA after having already sent the sneakers to retailers because the protesting quarterback said he felt the use of the Betsy Ross flag was offensive and carried slavery connotations, sources told The Wall Street Journal.

[…]

Citing people familiar with the matter, the Journal’s report stated: “After images of the shoe were posted online, Mr. Kaepernick, a Nike endorser, reached out to company officials saying that he and others felt the Betsy Ross flag is an offensive symbol because of its connection to an era of slavery.”

PHOTOS:

Former Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa became a multi-millionaire overnight when he was selected by the San Francisco 49ers with the second overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft.

On top of that, he got a shout out from the most powerful man in the entire world.

The reason?

Because liberals are now calling out Bosa for sending a tweet where he referred to anthem-kneeling quarterback Colin Kaepernick as a “clown,” and POTUS clearly wanted to show his support for the young man.

Trump’s words:

Congratulations to Nick Bosa on being picked number two in the NFL Draft. You will be a great player for years to come, maybe one of the best. Big Talent! San Francisco will embrace you but most importantly, always stay true to yourself. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

From Daily Caller:

Bosa, the number two overall pick in this year’s NFL draft, apologized Friday night for a series of now deleted social media posts made over the last several years that some found offensive, including a tweet calling former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick a “clown.”

Bosa said, “I’m sorry if I hurt anybody. I definitely didn’t intend for that to be the case. I think me being here (San Francisco) is even better for me as a person, because I don’t think there’s anywhere, any city, that you could really be in that would help you grow as much as this one will. I’m going to be surrounded with people of all different kinds, so I’m going to grow as a person. I’m going to be on my own. I’m going to grow up, I’m gonna learn a lot of new things. It’s exciting.

He added, “No. It wasn’t directed toward that. It’s not like I’m saying his stance and what he was doing — that’s not what I was talking about at all. It was just a specific thing that happened, and me, as a young kid, a thought popping into my head and, boom, decided to tweet it out. Bad decision. I respect what he’s done. If it empowers anybody, then he’s doing a good thing. I apologize for that.

Save conservative media!

Battered Woman In Jail For Not Having Concealed-Carry Permit After Shooting Father Of Children Who Attacked Her

Published

on

A 29-year-old woman is still behind bars after shooting the father of her children in self-defense, all because she did not have a concealed-carry permit for the weapon she possessed. The man, meanwhile, has been released on bond. Police told the Herald & Review that the woman in question had a shunt in her head from a previous injury, thus a blow to that area of the body could prove to be fatal. In response to the assault, the woman shot the man out of self-defense. TheBlaze has the latest: The man was hospitalized for a shot to his right side, the paper said, adding that police contacted the woman who voluntarily came to the police station for questioning. Sgt. Chris Copeland told the Herald & Review the woman had several injuries to her face from the man battering her. The man was arrested and is facing preliminary charges of domestic battery and unlawful vehicular invasion, the paper said, adding that he posted $10,000 bond. But the woman — who’s not facing charges for the shooting — is facing a preliminary charge of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon for lack of a concealed carry license, the Herald & Review reported. She was being held in lieu of $75,000, the paper added. This same scenario happened just last week when a woman in Chicago was attacked by a teenager who tried to take her property. The woman was charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon because she didn’t have a concealed carry license.

Impeachment Articles Against President Trump Approved By House Judiciary Committee

Published

on

In a pair of party-line votes, the House Judiciary Committee approved two articles of impeachment against President Trump Friday morning. TheBlaze has more information on how things went down: One article of impeachment is for alleged abuse of power in his administration’s interactions with Ukraine earlier this year, the other is for obstruction of Congress during the House’s subsequent investigation into the Ukraine controversy. Both were introduced by House Democrats earlier this week. The committee voted on each article of impeachment separately, passing each by a party-line vote of 23 to 17, with Democrats in favor and Republicans opposed. Friday morning’s vote came after two days of heated committee deliberations over the articles, during which Republicans offered multiple amendments to the language, none of which were adopted. On Thursday evening, committee chairman Jerry Nadler decided to stop the proceedings and move them to the next morning, stating that he wanted to give legislatures time “to think about what has happened over these last two days and to search their consciences before we cast our final votes.” Republican Doug Collins slammed the decision, referring to it as a “bush-league stunt,’ saying he and his colleagues were not consulted on the changes that were made. Nadler made a few quick remarks after the vote, saying “today is a solemn and sad day,” and that “the House will act expeditiously” on the matter of impeachment. https://twitter.com/ABCPolitics/status/1205513763991900161
