Just the start?

Sports are really, really, really messing up right now. Basketball, baseball, football, etc., used to be places people could go to escape reality and watch grown men play a child’s game at a high level.

Now, though, and most likely forever more, sports and politics will be intertwined.

It’s here to stay, y’all. Most likely.

The head coach of the University of Memphis football team, Ryan Silverfield, announced that his team will wear “BLM” stickers on their helmets this season, apparently making them the first Division I football team to do so.

Silverfield tweeted, “This season, for every game, our student-athletes’ helmets will have a BLM sticker. #ALLINagainstRACIALINJUSTICE.” He told The Memphis Commercial Appeal, “The use of the BLM logo on a helmet decal was an idea from our student-athletes. It doesn’t mean we support any anti-American, violent organization or hate group or any specific political party. In fact, I love this country and I love our players. Rather the decal is a show of support to our team.”

A statement from the school:

There’s ignorant and then there’s just plain over-the-moon absurd.

This professor from Chico State University managed to hit all the wrong buttons and firmly placed herself atop the list of most ridiculous people.

Check it out, via Breitbart:

A professor at Chico State (CSU, Chico) referred to President Donald Trump and the Republican Party as “poison,” and suggested that she and other professors use the “immense privilege” they have as “tenured faculty” to protect students who are offended by their classmates exercising their First Amendment rights. The instructor told Breitbart News that the First Amendment allowing the school’s College Republicans to “voice their support for Trump and — the Republican Party” is “intensely hurtful” to many students on campus.

Professor Lindsay Briggs, who without question doesn’t understand what the First Amendment is about, whined “The First Amendment protects our Republican Club students to voice their support for Trump and their support of the Republican Party. That is intensely hurtful to many of our students on campus.

A tweet from Briggs:

Chico State — you have homework to do over break. Time to do an honest personal inventory and decide where you will stand as things escalate towards elections.

Briggs is, well, something else…

Just being a leech and drinking my socialist power juice while all these hardworking people show me how not poisonous they are by calling me names on the internet. Just another day in my glamorous life!

I needed a folder to keep all my love notes in 💕

The 1st week of class, I own my biases & tell students what they are. That way they can figure out for themselves if they agree with me or not. I tell them my classes build critical thinking skills & they are free to think whatever they want as long as they have thought it out.

So unlike many people’s presumptions, my classroom is a place to learn your own values and practice speaking up for your ideas. Hardly the indoctrination factory people seem to think it is. But then, you’d have to go deeper than tired attack points to understand that. Pity.

I don’t adhere to arbitrary codes of social conduct such a “politeness” & “being ladylike” or “being ashamed of my actions.” If that’s what you’re here to say, it won’t have an impact. And unlike Michelle Obama, I don’t go high because you go low. I will go lower. See above.

I was not born to be pleasing to others. I have an equal number of people who dislike me on the left and the right. My truth and justice don’t waver for popularity points. Love me, hate me, it doesn’t matter to me. It’s called self esteem and radical love of self. Try it.

Save conservative media!

Rashida Tlaib Seals Victory In Michigan Democratic House Primary

Published

on

Well, it’s looking likely everyone’s favorite “Squad” of anti-Semitic starlets in the House will be reunited for another go at Congress as Rep. Rashida Tlaib won the Michigan Democratic House primary race. Tlaib is gunning for a second term representing Michigan’s 13th congressional district. She defeated Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones. Here’s more information via The Washington Examiner: Their election was defined by the issues of race and her resource monopoly compared to Jones. Tlaib’s victory was a surprise given the record number of black Detroit voters who mailed in their ballots to officials ahead of the Aug. 4 primary. Tlaib and Jones first met in the 2018 special election to replace the late Rep. John Conyers. Conyers had resigned over sexual misconduct accusations at the height of the #MeToo movement. Jones won the four-way special election before Tlaib clinched victory by fewer than 1,000 votes five weeks later. The second contest was against a more crowded six-way field for the longer stint in Washington. All four of their former general election rivals backed Jones, a 15-year councilor. Polling was sparse throughout the race, but a Target-Insyght poll late last month had Tlaib in front, 53% to 24% . The Palestinian-American, who along with Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar was one of the first two Muslim women to win seats in Congress, was leading in the cash stakes. She raised $2.9 million, in contrast to Jones’ $140,000 in July. Jones was disadvantaged after contracting COVID-19 as well. If there’s two people this country could stand to see less of, it’s Tlaib and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Unfortunately, despite all of their anti-Semitic remarks poor decision making, they will probably win second terms. Try not to hurt yourself jumping with joy.

Biden Delivers Bizarre Interview; Walks Back Claims On Cognitive Tests, Rambles On About ‘Cocaine’

Published

on

Over the last year or so, there’s been a lot of speculation that Joe Biden’s mental health is in serious decline. He’s lost his train of thought in the middle of a sentence on numerous occasions, needed to have questions repeated, rambled incoherently, forgotten parts of the Declaration of Independence, and much more. Do we really want a guy like that in the White House? Of course not. But the left is moving full steam ahead with him as their candidate anyway. Biden recently gave a very strange interview in which he walked back previous claims of taking cognitive tests and rambled on about cocaine. You just have to to see this for yourself. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “Have you taken a cognitive test?” CBS News correspondent Errol Barnett asked. “No, I haven’t taken a test,” Biden shot back. “Why the hell would I take a test? Come on man, that’s like saying, you, before you got in this program, if you take a test where you’re taking cocaine or not, what do you think, huh? Are you a junkie?” “What do you say to President Trump, who brags about his test and makes your mental state an issue for voters?” the host pressed as Biden laughed. “Well, if he can’t figure out the difference between an elephant and lion, I don’t know what the hell he’s talking about,” Biden responded. “Did you watch that, look, come on man, I, I, I know you’re trying to goad me, but I mean I’m so forward looking to have an opportunity to sit with the president or stand with the president and debates. There gonna be plenty of time, and by the way, as I joke with’em, you know, I, I shouldn’t say it. I’m going to say something, I…
