WATCH: Founder of Papa John’s Speaks Out, Tells His Side of the Story and it Isn’t Pretty

Published

on

John Schnatter, founder of pizza chain Papa John’s, had a very rough week last week, being forced to resign from the company he started after it was leaked to the media that he used the “n-word” during a conference call in May.

As you can probably imagine, as soon as folks on the left got hold of this, the man was slammed every which way but loose, which is why he had to leave his company, not even being given a fair shake to explain his side of things.

Well, now he’s speaking out and telling his side of the story, and it’s not pretty. Schnatter claims he was blackmailed.

“It doesn’t matter the context,” Schnatter told WLKY News. “The fact of the matter is that word hurts people. It was a strategy session, it was training. … I was just repeating what somebody else said. I was actually kind of provoked a little bit.”

Schnatter says marketing agency Laundry Service attempted to get them to partner with a third party, which has used the n-word.

“This other party used that word a lot,” explained the founder, adding, “By the fourth or fifth pass, I just said, ‘No, we’re not gonna be part of any such thing. So-and-so used the n-word, and we don’t use the n-word, and we’re not gonna use the n-word. And that’s it.’ So, we kind of shut that down quickly.”

According to a report from Forbes, during the conference call, Schnatter said “Colonel Sanders called blacks n*****s” and explained that Sanders did not receive similar backlash from the public. The media company was supposed to be helping Papa John’s with their public relations.

Two weeks after the call, Laundry Service “tried to extort us,” says Schnatter.

“They wanted 6 million dollars to make it go away. … The words were, ‘If I don’t get my effing money, I’m gonna bury the founder,’ said one of the executives. I’m not for sale.”

The company then took the story to Forbes. Schnatter also went on to hit both Forbes and The Courier, calling them out for lying.

Schnatter finished by stating he doesn’t condone racism in any way.

If this is true, the company responsible for blackmailing him deserves to have the pants sued off of them and more for breaking the law for their own personal gain.

It’s definitely not beyond the realm of possibility that this actually happened. Lots of race baiters out there love to line their pockets off this hot button issue, the Rev. Al Sharpton coming immediately to mind.

Racism is no longer about equality these days, but about creating protected classes and finding ways to profit off of civil unrest and hatred, something that’s completely despicable and just plain wrong.

Let’s hope Schnatter is somehow vindicated for this — if it turns out to be true — and that the whole mess gets straightened out by the truth, wherever it may lead.

US Pop Star Offers to Pay Fines For Olympic Team Protesting Skimpy Outfits

The IOC wants the women to remain scantily clad, and this is undoubtedly on account of their incessant greed.

Published

The Olympics may have built themselves as some sort of prestigious and untouchable global event in years past, but the last few decades have revealed just what a shady cash-grab the games have become. It all began in the 90’s when the financially-struggling Winter Olympics added snowboarding to the games, in a move that was blatantly meant to generate ad revenue from the emerging sport and its fans.  In this quest to cash in, the International Olympic Committee refused to allow any actual snowboarding organizations participate in the operations, which drove several of the world’s best to boycott.  This, in turn, completely ruined the concept that the gold medalists were truly the best in the world, and exposed the IOC as nothing more than a marketing firm. Now, in 2021, a number of female athletes are complaining that they are being forced to wear skimpier clothes than their male counterparts, (often in the same discipline), to which the IOC responded with a “be quiet and play” sort of attitude. Again, the skimpier outfits equate to more ratings, so Olympic organizers are refusing to make accommodations. This has led US pop star Pink to step up.  US pop star Pink has offered to pay the fines handed out to the Norwegian women’s beach handball team, after they wore shorts like their male counterparts instead of bikini bottoms. The team was fined 1,500 euros (£1,295) for “improper clothing” at the European Beach Handball Championships last week. “I’m very proud of the Norwegian female beach handball team for protesting sexist rules about their uniform,” tweeted the singer on Sunday. “Good on ya, ladies,” she added. “I’ll be happy to pay your fines for you. Keep it up.” In doing so, the Olympics will get their coveted cash and these female athletes will be able to perform…

GOP Rep. Says There’s ‘Credible’ Evidence of Wuhan Lab-Leak Theory

China has been avoiding any such investigation for months now.

Published

From the very moment that the COVID-19 pandemic began, there were concerns that China wasn’t telling us the truth. This was primarily based on Beijing’s horrendous record of dishonesty when it comes to the international community, which has been ever-so frequent in cases in which the Chinese government could be made to appear cruel or uncaring. To be fair, it doesn’t take long for most to realize that this is, in fact, reality, especially as we continue to receive credible reports of the nation’s use of concentration camps and ethnic cleansing. In the case of the coronavirus, not only did the world discover that the data coming out of Beijing was wholly incorrect, but that a laboratory specializing in the exact type of coronaviruses that caused COVID-19 happened to be just a few miles away from the epicenter of the pandemic. Now, despite numerous attempts to stall or stymy efforts to investigate the theory that pandemic began as a lab-leak, one US lawmaker is claiming that there is credible evidence of just such a possibility.  Sunday, on FNC’s “The Next Revolution,” Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-IA) stressed the importance of investigating the origins of COVID-19, and in particular, China’s role. His statement was stern. “As you know, we still have yet to have any notice that there will be an investigation. And so I think, rightfully, we used the powers of oversight that we have in Congress and we convened a hearing. Unfortunately, none of the Democrats attended that hearing. But the expert testimony from the witnesses was quite profound and quite significant. “And I think as they said, and I would tend to agree that this virus came from the laboratory, whether it was a leak, whether it was accidental, whether it was intentional, whether it was manmade or whether it…
