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!

Republicans Chastise President Without Mentioning His Name, After He Won’t Commit To Peaceful Transfer Of Power

Published

on

A handful of individuals in the GOP were not too happy with President Trump for refusing to commit to a peaceful transfer of power should Joe Biden win the November election. Leading the pack were Utah Sen. Mitt Romney, Reps. Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Steve Stivers of Ohio. All three of these individuals took to social media to rebuke Trump, though none of them actually mentioned him by name, probably in an attempt to continue putting on an air of solidarity. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “Fundamental to democracy is the peaceful transition of power; without that, there is Belarus. Any suggestion that a president might not respect this Constitutional guarantee is both unthinkable and unacceptable,” said Romney, who has long been at odds with the president. https://twitter.com/MittRomney/status/1308932877229477890 “The peaceful transfer of power is enshrined in our Constitution and fundamental to the survival of our Republic. America’s leaders swear an oath to the Constitution. We will uphold that oath,” said Cheney, the third-ranking Republican in the House. At the White House, the president was asked by a reporter if he would “commit here today for a peaceful transferal of power after the November election” during Wednesday’s press briefing. The president didn’t answer affirmatively. “We’re going to have to see what happens. You know that I’ve been complaining very strongly about the ballots, and the ballots are a disaster,” the president said. “Get rid of the ballots and you’ll have a very peaceful — there won’t be a transfer, frankly. There will be a continuation.” Immediately, leftists all over Twitter have pounced on his comments to try and twist them to make the president look as if he’s wanting to go full dictator here, and get rid of voting altogether so he can stay in power.

Suspect In Shooting Of Louisville Police Officers Arrested In Wake Of Violent Protests

Published

on

It was announced yesterday that there would be no formal charges brought against the Louisville police officers involved in the shooting death of Breonna Taylor, and as you can probably guess, Black Lives Matter protesters immediately took to the streets and stuff got pretty violent real quick. In fact, two police officers were shot, though thankfully the injuries they sustained were not life threatening. A man has been arrested in connection with the shootings. Here’s more from Fox News: A suspect accused in shooting two Louisville police officers during protests Wednesday evening has also been identified. Larynzo Johnson, 26, has been charged with wanton endangerment and assault of a police officer. He will be arraigned Friday. Johnson “intentionally used a handgun to fire multiple bullets at officers” addressing the crowd, the complaint said. Two officers were struck by bullets causing serious physical injury. Police said witnesses spotted Johnson firing a handgun at officers and running from the scene. The complaint said he was also in possession of a handgun at the time of his arrest and law enforcement recovered video of the shooting showing the suspect fire at officers. Police stated that some businesses were looted early Thursday morning, because hey, nothing says “fighting inequality” like robbing stores owned by people who have absolutely nothing to do with your alleged grievances. It’s never okay to riot, loot, or burn other people’s property to the ground. That doesn’t make you a “freedom fighter” it makes you a criminal, a terrorist. This is what Black Lives Matter doesn’t seem to understand. Or they do understand, but simply don’t care. Let’s hope no further incidents of violence occur and police are actually allowed to do their jobs and quell the madness before someone gets killed.
