Weekend Of Fights Shows That NFL Brutes Belong Behind Bars, Not On Pedestals

This past weekend, NFL players – who alongside Hollywood stars that regularly get on their knees for acting roles function as our collective moral compass nowadays – across the country were involved in a series of grizzly brawls adding further embarrassment and shame to the beleaguered organization with its ratings already in the toilet. Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver AJ Green savagely attacked Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey, choking him and pummeling him brutally for no particular reason. Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Flynn leveled New Orleans Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore, again, for no good reason. In both situations, the… Keep Reading

Fact Check: Judge Roy Moore Is Right About The Law And The National Anthem

Judge Roy Moore sparked headlines for comments he made regarding the controversy of NFL players kneeling for the national anthem. In an interview with Time, Moore stated the following: It’s against the law, you know that? It was a act of Congress that every man stand and put their hand over their heart. That’s the law. If they didn’t have it in there, it would just be tradition. But this is law. If we disobey this, what else are we going to disobey? While the former Alabama Supreme Court Justice was criticized for his remarks, he isn’t wrong. Keep Reading

“Taking The Knee” Rhymes With “Taking A Pee”

Taking a knee stands for the specter of beefy, pampered athletes—they’re not sportsmen—wealthy beyond belief, striking a political pose on the football field, during the playing of the national anthem. First to kneel when he was meant to stand was Colin Kaepernick. The reason the San Francisco 49er knelt, in 2016: “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.” Like Kaepernick, current kneelers are not Copernicus. It’s hard to fathom what they actually want. A non-player activist has since narrowed the kneeling to “ending… Keep Reading

Why Is Public Opinion Shifting On Athletes Kneeling During National Anthem?

The country has become engulfed in the National Anthem debate once again. Last year, National Football Player Colin Kaepernick ignited a firestorm of public opinion and debate by refusing to honor the National Anthem. In the months since, it has spread to other players and across numerous sports. Kaepernick’s reason for doing so was to protest racial inequality, a reason many others have adopted. In the beginning, many in the general public stood by Kaepernick. While there is an argument regarding respect, they understand the importance of standing up for what is right. There are legitimate issues nationally regarding racial… Keep Reading

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee Kneels In Protest On Congressional Floor

What started with National Football League player Colin Kaepernick last year has become a full blown movement across the country. It slowly moved around the NFL, with other players joining Kaepernick to kneel during the National Anthem to protest their cause. For Kaepernick, it was a social justice cause calling attention to racial inequality. This is the same for other players, while others have done it purely out of solidarity with other protesters. In the last couple of weeks, it’s spread to Major League Baseball and become a more widespread movement since President Donald Trump called anyone who does it… Keep Reading

Pittsburgh Steelers’ Alejandro Villaneuva Forced To Grovel For Standing For His Country

The #TakeAKnee protesters are now spreading like a wild fire throughout the country. What started with Colin Kaepernick and a small handful of other National Football League players has become a movement across sports that is now bleeding into every aspect of our society. President Donald Trump reignited the debate when he defiantly proclaimed the NFL should fire these players, even going as far as using profanity to show his disdain toward the athletes. In response, players knelt or locked arms in solidarity. While the story was found in all the teams who did protest, one major story was found… Keep Reading

Move Over Traitorous NFL: It’s Lingerie Football’s Time To Shine

Thanks to the actions of entitled, sub-80 IQ, roided-up millionaire athletes we are witnessing the slow death of America’s national pastime of the past four decades, the NFL. What once was an exciting and mindless escape for millions of Americans has turned into a national embarrassment. Americans are not interested in watching whiny, ungrateful SJWs in shoulder pads showcase their hatred for the country that was generous enough to provide them the opportunity to make millions of dollars throwing a ball around. The NFL is going to virtue signal itself into insolvency, evidenced by the already sizable drop in ratings… Keep Reading

First Major League Baseball Player Kneels During The National Anthem

What started with National Football League free agent Colin Kaepernick last year has become a trend in professional sports. By kneeling during the National Anthem, Kaepernick ignited a national firestorm over his actions and why he did it. Kaepernick viewed his display as an act of social justice warfare that brings awareness to racial issues he believes in. Opponents to him and his actions viewed his behavior as a disrespectful act against the country and those who keep it free. The act has spread beyond the NFL, and now has reached Major League Baseball. Oakland Athletics catcher Bruce Maxwell became… Keep Reading

If Paid Athletes Can #TakeAKnee, Can Paid Employees Express Political Beliefs Without Consequence As Well?

President Donald Trump’s recent tweets regarding the prevalence of NFL athletes kneeling during the national anthem was met with immediate disapproval from haters. Though tweets from Trump are always susceptible to backlash, the arguments against Trump, this particular time, hit some good points. The prominent arguments being stated are that kneeling during the National Anthem is a right protected under the 1st Amendment of the Constitution, and that political speech is not what the athletes are paid to do and the athletes must respond to their fan feedback. This is clearly a tough topic to have a simple opinion on… Keep Reading

Trump Is Right Yet Again, Colin Kaepernick Is A Son Of A Bitch

There are two reasons that Colin Kaepernick is out of a job in the National Football League. The first and most important reason is that he’s a lousy quarterback. This isn’t unique to Kaepernick, as there are plenty of mediocre players at all positions in the NFL. This brings us to the second reason that he’s an unemployed bum: He brings with him enough baggage to travel to Europe, baggage which other middling players have the good sense to leave in the closet, even if they agree with his sanctimonious posturing. Kaepernick kneels during the national anthem to protest the… Keep Reading

What Derek Carr’s Contract Teaches Us About Wall Street And Income Inequality

Derek Carr has just signed the most lucrative deal in NFL history, receiving a five-year extension worth $125 million with the soon-to-be Las Vegas Raiders. At $25 million per year, Carr edges out Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck (though Luck’s contract did reward him with over twice as much in guaranteed money). Carr also becomes a big winner in the Raiders’ taxpayer-funded escape from Oakland, with his contract scheduled so most of the money kicks in after the franchise moves to income-tax-free Nevada. While the structure of Carr’s contract offers another opportunity to discuss the “jock tax,” it also serves… Keep Reading

Celebs “Speaking Out” Will Destroy Their Ratings

Meryl Streep took to the stage at the Golden Globes Award ceremony Sunday night to slam President-elect Donald Trump for his mocking a disabled reporter back in the fall of 2015. Trump predictively logged on Twitter later that night and called Streep an, “over-rated Hillary flunky.” This comes after top Hollywood celebs produced a plethora of pro-Clinton propaganda and called Trump out explicitly on stage plenty of times. Celebrities aren’t just hurting Democrats by politicizing entertainment—they are diminishing themselves. Celebrities making political statements is nothing new. In fact, President Ronald Reagan was an active promoter of conservative and free-market principles… Keep Reading

Praise The Lord And Pass The Ammunition

The Pledge of Allegiance and Standing for the National Anthem are necessary and wholesome public rituals. We celebrate the house that shelters us, even as we strive to repair and restore it. I live in a very beautiful place with a fair amount of history attached to it, so when I had the opportunity to turn down both CBS and the NFL for a commercial shoot yesterday, it felt good. We received a breezy email from the CBS pre-production office outlining their 49ers / NFL promotion as follows: In 1849 there was a gold rush and people flocked to the… Keep Reading
