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!

President Trump Says COVID-19 Vaccine Deliveries To Begin Next Week

Published

on

President Donald Trump stated on Thursday evening that COVID-19 vaccine deliveries would begin early next week. “The whole world is suffering and we are rounding the curve,” the president said. “And the vaccines are being delivered next week or the week after.” Via Fox News: The announcement came during a special Thanksgiving holiday message to U.S. troops overseas via teleconference. Trump noted that front-line workers, medical personnel and senior citizens would be the vaccine’s first recipients. He also argued that his opponent, President-elect Joe Biden, should not be given credit for the vaccines, which he referred to as a “medical miracle” before repeating claims of voting irregularities in the 2020 election. “Joe Biden failed with the swine flu, H1N1, totally failed with the swine flu,” Trump said. “Don’t let him take credit for the vaccines because the vaccines were me and I pushed people harder than they’ve ever been pushed before and we got that approved and through and nobody’s ever seen anything like it.” The comments made by the president come days ahead of a meeting due to take place on December 10, where regulators with the Food and Drug Administration will take a look at Pfizer’s request for an emergency use authorization for the coronavirus vaccine that it has developed along with BioNTech. The latest data to come out of test trials for this particular vaccine, which was revealed earlier in the month, has it being at least 90 percent effective. Moderna is also working on a vaccine and the company stated that their product is 94.5 percent effective in preventing coronavirus infections. Folks, whether you plan on taking the vaccine or not, the good news is that President Trump promised he would have one by the end of the year and he has delivered. Unfortunately, there’s no doubt leftist media…

Single Mom Defies Minnesota State Order, Plans To Open Bar On Friday

Published

Located in a tiny town in the state of Minnesota, a single mother and owner of a small bar that helps provide her fellow residents with entertainment is planning to open up her business on Friday in total defiance of the tyrannical state order that closes all bars and restaurants indefinitely due to the spread of the coronavirus. The woman has already stated that she is willing to pay any fine and even possibly face jail time for her actions. Folks, this is what a bold patriot looks like. via Daily Wire: Larvita McFarquhar owns Havens Garden in Lynd, Minnesota, a town of 448 people. On November 19, she posted a video on Facebook which was captioned, “Live Music and Food next Friday Night! Come have fun with the Great Tommy Rex or sing your own tunes during Open Mic! November 27 2020, 9pm-11pm Lynd MN.” The video features her saying, “Hi! I’m here at Havens Garden asking everyone to join us November 27 from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. for Open Mic Night. Come down and have a good time here at Havens Garden in Lynd, Minnesota.” As John Hinderaker of Powerline reports, that announcement prompted the state to threaten her. Alpha News reported that after she posted the video, a deputy with the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office asked McFarquhar if she was aware that Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz (D) had issued a new order forcing all bars and restaurants to be closed and warned her of the consequences if she defied the order. McFarquhar told Alpha News, “I said, ‘Yes, I’m aware, but are you aware that the governor’s mandate is not a law? The governor does not pass laws and you are supposed to uphold the Constitution. You don’t work for the governor; you work for us.’”…
