The Lefts (brilliant) scam behind the #NFL anthem protests – Hot Air (Ban the NFL?)

The Left’s (brilliant) scam behind the NFL anthem protestsJazz ShawPosted at 10:41 am on September 26, 2017Share on FacebookShare on Twitter104It didn’t happen until last night. For the entire time that the recent spate of highly inflamed National Anthem protests on NFL playing fields has been unfolding this year, there’s been something nagging at the back of my mind. Watching liberal activists (not to be confused with rank and file voters who may happen to be registered Democrats but also enjoy sports) charging to the barricades over these displays of kneeling, sitting or otherwise acting disrespectfully during the playing of the anthem and the display of the American flag, something just didn’t seem right. But last night was when it hit me. This isn’t about protesting racism, police misconduct or anything of the sort. What we’re observing is potentially one of the greatest red herrings in the history of American political scams.See Also: Noted NSA leaker faces damage to kosher vegan diet from prison foodThe question I was most confused over was… why this location? Why this particular time? The reality is that any of these well paid players could call a press conference or show up at any rally to talk about racism, police shootings and all the rest, and they would draw the attention of millions, along with the media. (God only knows ESPN would show up.) So why were the liberal activists insisting that it had to be at the start of a game while the National Anthem is playing and the flag is on display? It didn’t make sense. And then, suddenly, it did. TRENDING: The Lefts (brilliant) scam behind the NFL anthem protests I think the light bulb finally went on when I was reading this piece on the subject from the Washington Post’s Jonathan Capehart. It wasn’t really so much what the author had to say because that was probably the fiftieth tirade of that sort I’d read in just the past week. No, it was more a matter of who was saying it. To his credit, Jonathan is honest enough to open the piece with a statement reminding people that he’s, “not much of a sports fan.” But that doesn’t begin to describe him. For those who ever watched Capehart fill in for Willie Geist on MSNBC’s old “Way Too Early” show, you’ll know what I mean. It became something of a running gag (which Jonathan engaged in with a great sense of humor) to watch him attempt to read the teleprompter on Monday morning and describe what had happened around the NFL the day before. Frequently he had%2

WTF?? Actor to MSNBC: National Anthem is a Scam ‘To Get Boys and Girls to Go Kill People’ #NFL

And you wonder how people actually believe this stuff.  I guess the producers at MSNBC don’t have a problem with this guy?  You will probably see Grey’s Anatomy ratings go the way of the NFL.  We’ve had enough of this race baiting.

Actor to MSNBC: National Anthem is a Scam ‘To Get Boys and Girls to Go Kill People’

By Corinne Weaver | September 25, 2017 10:51 AM EDT

First they came for the statues, now they are coming for the national anthem. The left wants to rip the virtue of patriotism from the public eye. For some progressives, it isn’t enough that NFL players use the anthem for their protest. The anthem itself is a problem.

On Sunday, MSNBC Live with Thomas Roberts, actor Jesse Williams (Grey’s Anatomy) expressed his opinion on Trump, the national anthem, and the NFL. He believed that the NFL was owned by Trump supporters who were “close friends with a very horrible guy who thinks he’s a dictator.” Williams also said that “We’re North Korea,” and finally, that the national anthem has nothing to do with the NFL, but “is a scam.” He told Roberts (who agreed) that the anthem was meant “to get boys and girls to go fly overseas and go kill people.”

Williams stated that he wanted to see the owners speak, since “there is an entire league of people, a league of owners, blocking this man and others from being able to fulfill their dreams and do what they’be been able to do. This league is rife with mediocre white quarterbacks that are not as good as Colin Kaepernick.”

But Roberts egged the actor on to talk about Trump and whether or not the president was “gaslighting people” by saying that his supporters could do whatever they wanted, and that he wasn’t calling for an NFL boycott. Williams finally broke into a “fake news” tirade, with this rant aimed at the national anthem and NFL owners:

“They don’t know right from wrong because we know seven or eight of these owners gave Trump a million dollars each, and are close friends with a very horrible guy who thinks he’s a dictator, who treats America like it’s a game show. We’re North Korea and we need

BREAKING: Antioch Shooter Is Black Power Radical Who Posted That “You’re More Likely To Be Killed By A White Man” – GotNews Will MSM Cover This? #Antioch

This guy was initially described as an African American….which is a did on all Americans since he was not one.  African, yes.  He was here since 1990 and still had no time for the country in which he prospered.  If he liked Zimbabwe so much, why didn’t he go there?

The MSM will bury this.

Screenshots from Twitter and Facebook.
The Antioch, Tennessee church shooter is an immigrant from Sudan and black power radical with a history of sharing pro-Islamic and anti-Western posts on social media, a review of his Facebook and Twitter accounts reveals.
Before 25-year-old Emanuel Kidega Samson opened fire on churchgoers in Antioch, Tennessee today, he shared a variety of Black Power and anti-police propaganda on his personal Facebook page. In addition, he shared a number of pro-Islamic posts, including a video in which a Muslim activist defends Sharia law. Moreover, Samson frequently shared anti-west posts, at least one of which praised Zimbabwean dictator Robert Mugabe’s wealth confiscation efforts.
On July 8th, 2016, Samson shared a link from a website titled “New Generation Back Council” that falsely claimed “Police Murder a black Panther General execution style and try to cover it up June 23rd 2016.”:

And just last month, Samson shared a post that implied citizens shouldn’t trust police because an account purporting to be an assistant chief of police had shared a racially insensitive meme:

February 27th, Samson, whose Facebook indicates he’s from Khartoum, Sudan, shared a video from Mic that declared “You’re more likely to be killed by a white man than a Muslim terrorist.” On March 2nd, he shared a video from Vox co-founder Ezra Klein warning viewers not to ignore the threat of “white extremism”:

On February 17th, Samson shared a video of Muslim activist Yasmeen Abdel-Magied defending Sharia law against Australian Senator Jacqui Lambie. Samson wrote “You can’t converse with some people, that’s the unfortunate truth. Folk will accept what you have to say when they want/ready to.”:
(Facebook screenshot http://archive.is/UP1Qu )
On July 29th, 2016, Samson shared a video titled “Zimbabwe is taking its diamonds back,” and explained that its dictator Robert Mugabe had “announced that the state will now own all diamonds in the country.” Samson praised Mugabe, whose regime has murdered thousands of civilians and confiscated private property from its citizens of European descent. Samson wrote “Bossman, Bobby back at it again.”:

The madness at Evergreen State College – Hot Air #Snowflakes #Evergreen

Why do we concentrate so much on this third-rate college in Washington?  Because it is the canary in the coal mine.  Because it is what many other colleges and universities could very well turn into.

Remember all those leftist protestors of the sixties?  The Bill Ayers of the left?  The SDS, Weather Underground, Black Panthers and others?  They didn’t get real jobs.  Instead they went into academia where they poisoned the minds of our children.  Then they got administrative jobs where they hired only those who were of like minds.  They found ways to indoctrinate our children…to allow them unfettered violence with no consequence.  The indoctrinated them with the ideas of Marx, Lenin, and Mao…no contrary ideas…just indoctrination.

We still have time to change this.  These colleges and universities don’t need to be conservative.  They just need to expose our children to divers ideas and let them make up their own minds.  They need to focus on education rather than social engineering.  We have time…but not much.

 

The madness at Evergreen State College
John SextonPosted at 5:21 pm on September 22, 2017

Thursday the Wall Street Journal published a story based on a review of hundreds of pages of internal emails from Evergreen State College. What the paper found was more evidence that students, supported by certain members of the faculty, seemed eager to label anyone who disagreed with them racist:See Also: Socialist parties on the decline in Europe

Consider a February exchange, in which Mr. Weinstein—a progressive who is skeptical of identity politics—faulted what he called Evergreen administrators’ “reckless, top-down reorganization around new structures and principles.”
Within minutes, a student named Mike Penhallegon fired back an email denouncing Mr. Weinstein and his “racist colleagues.”…
Media professor Naima Lowe urged one of Mr. Weinstein’s defenders to read about how calls for civility are “often used to silence and/or dismiss concerns about racism.” She also said that the “white people making changes in their white supremacist attitudes and behaviors” were those “who do not immediately balk and become defensive,” instead acknowledging that “white supremacy is literally ingrained in everything.” In other words, merely defending oneself against the accusation of “white supremacy” is evidence of guilt.
Last month I wrote about the experience of one professor, Nancy Koppelman, who was surrounded by students who demanded she follow their orders. She wrote a long letter expressing her concern about what she experienced:

TRENDING:

The madness at Evergreen State College

In the first occassion, three female students and one male who claimed to not be a student surrounded me with raised voices and twisted my words when I responded to them. When I stopped to try to talk with them they refused to actually engage in conversation. The only thing which they would accept was my obedience, which you won’t be surprised to learn I was not going to give. They followed me all the way across Red Square to Sem 2 [Seminar 2] while berating me. By the time I got to the venue for the faculty meeting, I was shaking.
When I left the faculty meeting I was followed by two new students who were waiting outside the door for me. These two followed me and asserted that nothing I could possibly be doing was more important than following their orders. If I did have something important to do, I should tell them what it is so they could evaluate whether my decision to leave was valid.

Biology professor

has settled his lawsuit against Evergreen State College in Olympia, Wash. Mr. Weinstein became a pariah last spring when he criticized an officially sanctioned “Day of Absence” during which white people were asked to stay away from campus. He and his wife, anthropology professor

Heather Heying,

alleged that Evergreen “has permitted, cultivated, and perpetuated a racially hostile and retaliatory work environment.” They claimed administrators failed to protect them from “repeated provocative and corrosive verbal and written hostility based on race, as well as threats of physical violence.” Last week the university announced it would pay $500,000 to settle the couple’s complaint. Evergreen said in a statement that the college “strongly rejects” the lawsuit’s allegations, denies the Day of Absence was discriminatory, and asserts: “The college took reasonable and appropriate steps to engage with protesters, de-escalate conflict, and keep the campus safe.” A differen

It is time to haul Sessions in front of Congress and show reason why he (or someone else) should not be held in contempt.

Congress should then see a judge to enforce the subpoena.  Let them ignore at their own peril.

Vicar of Baghdad: Four Iraqi Christian Kids Beheaded After Refusing to Convert to Islam, Telling ISIS Militants ‘No, We Love Jesus’ #ISIS

The “religion” of peace strikes again.  Once Iran takes over Iraq will things get any better?  I think not.

Other than preventing genocide, how will our intervention be in the US interest?  Hard to say. Best to keep an anti-terrorism force in Iraq to destroy whatever targets are appropriate, be they Shia, Sunni, or other.

Here are the students who think Antifa violence is okay

It’s about time we taught these snowflakes what fascism and communism were really all about.  Toss in Margaret Sanger’s take on eugenics.

It will take a generation to make a dent in these attitudes.  Also, our colleges are staffed with people who promote their hatred.  It’s time we purged them as well.

OK…Columbus Day offends a few Indians.  How many Italian-Americans does this change offend?

I don’t think that offending people is the real issue here.  It is one of political correctness and people of Italian descent don’t count.  Perhaps they should live on a reservation.

John Villasenor

surveyed more than 1,500 undergraduates, and among the alarming findings: Most American college students do not know that even hate speech is constitutionally protected; half agree that it’s okay to shout down a speaker whose views they don’t agree with; and nearly one of five believe it is acceptable for a student group opposed to a speaker to use violence to keep him from speaking. Some of the answers vary by political identification, but overall the findings suggest great confusion. Mr. Villasenor’s conclusion is blunt. “Freedom of expression,” he says, “is deeply imperiled on U.S. campuses.” We’d take that%
