Colin Kaepernick has his kotex in a bunch because no team chose him.
As Kaepernick watched his last two chances, the Ravens and the Dolphins, slip through his hands, he is furiously blaming everyone but himself for the end of his career.
His pro-communist support of Castro would have doomed him in Miami even if he hadn’t done his anti-American antics last year.
The Ravens tried to give him a chance, but the fans made it clear that they would boycott the team if Kaepernick was even placed on the bench.
According to several different outlets, Kaepernick, who is now a free agent for the first time in his career, is getting the cold shoulder from the league’s many organizations.
One anonymous AFC general manager chalked Kaepernick’s cold reception up to three things: 1) he can’t play at a high performance level anymore, 2) owners fear his presence will cause a backlash among the fan base, and 3) owners and organizations simply hate him.
Kaepernick has the constitutional freedom to protest all he wants. But there are consequences, especially when you chose to protest on your employer’s time clock.
Kaepernick was responsible for an NFL wide boycott that cost them and their advertisers millions. The NFL viewership dropped to lows not seen since its inception.
Since, he has compared law enforcement as slave owners and been very vocal about his anti-American stances.
The problem is the NFL fan base is very patriotic. Football fans love this country and they respect law enforcement.
Kaepernick’s playing ability declined as well, and that was no accident. When you start every game thinking negative thoughts, you have doomed yourself. That goes for any job, football to sales.
I predict that Kaepernick will stay unsigned. Kaepernick is an insult to America and he costs whatever team he is on, not only profits but fans. I guarantee that if Miami or Baltimore had signed him, they would have been boycotted and rightly so.
Kaepernick needs to find another line of work. Perhaps community organizer, professional agitator, revolutionary hero or maybe there’s a third world he**hole out there in need of a dictator. His options are endless really. Just don’t expect him to be signed by any professional football team.
Americans hate those who hate our country. It doesn’t take a genius to figure that one out. Which means Kaepernick should have already figured it out. It’s not racist of Miami to not sign a no-talent hack like Kaepernick. It’s good business sense and patriotic in my book. Just look at the guy’s stats. Then take a look at his attitude, who he associates with (his girlfriend especially) and what comes out of his mouth. There’s your answer.
Speaking of his girlfriend, she helped doom his only real good chance, the Ravens.
Kapernick’s girlfriend, Nessa Diab created the latest headline when she sent a tweet which likened the Raven’s owner, Stephen Bisciotti, to a plantation owner and its legendary (and troubled) star, retired player Ray Lewis, to an Uncle Tom.
The whole Kaepernick problem is based on media coverage. What was she thinking? With girlfriends like that who needs enemies?
Kaepernick made his bed and now he can lay in it! At least, he has all the time in the world to think about all the anti-American thoughts he wants. Good riddance.
They shut down a page from an Alt-Right member.
But they allow pages from ISIS that promote child pornography and have gruesome videos.
Yet no one seems to mind.
No demands they be shut down.
No lawsuits for discrimination.
All the more reason Google, Facebook and Twittter ought to be bundled as utilities and regulated as such.
The bitch who tore down a Confederate statue is being offered a scholarship.
The student charged with pushing down the Confederate statue in Durham, North Carolina on Monday may be rewarded with a scholarship for her actions from North Carolina Central University.
The Chronicle of Higher Education reported on Wednesday that proposals are being made at the college to award Takiyah Thompson, who has been charged with two felonies—participation in a riot and inciting others to riot—for her actions.
News that Thompson was involved in the demonstration was reportedly met with widespread support from campus faculty and students in her Introduction to Political Science class.
“I saw the demonstration and the toppling of the monument. I think it’s a healthy thing for students to have a voice and to be leaders in activism,” said Jim C. Harper II, chair of the history department. “We’re going to do everything we can to support Ms. Thompson.”
Her professor, Allan Cooper, said that the entire class applauded when he revealed to them that Thompson was the person charged with toppling the statue. Following the news, Cooper sent an email to the chair to propose giving Thompson a scholarship.
Thompson wasn’t the only person involved in vandalizing the Confederate statue, which was dedicated to the boys who died in the Civil War, but she was the among the few rioters identified in video footage.
Scott Holmes, a professor at NCCU’s law school, is legally representing Thompson and other rioters who were arrested, pro bono.
“She is an inspiration to watch,” said Holmes. “She gave a brilliant interview, was arrested, came out and had a big smile on her face. She is resilient and smart and knows she’s done something that has awakened the conversation around race.”
Other professors at NCCU are reportedly raising money to cover the legal costs for the rioters.
He’s a nobody but wants to be a diva.
Let’s hope this moron never gets re-elected.
It’s a list of demands that makes even Mariah Carey look low-maintenance.
A hefty, eight-page memo detailing what it takes to be a driver for Rep. Todd Rokita has been revealed — and it’s not for the faint of heart.
The Indiana congressman demands that his chauffeurs double as personal assistants who greet him at pickup with a fresh cup of hot, black coffee and never be without gum and hand sanitizer.
Rokita’s toiletry bag, with his toothbrush and toothpaste, is to be kept in the trunk of the car, along with a nearly 20-item supply box dubbed “The Football” containing an always-stocked inventory of more gum, hand sanitizer, a blue Sharpie (for signing letters), lozenges, Kleenex, a stapler, staples and a staple remover and Shout wipes.
Besides chauffeuring him, drivers must ensure that Rokita is never photographed with a drink in his hand — but are asked to “get Todd a non-alcoholic drink that he can carry with him” when he arrives at an event.
“Water, diet soda and coffee are best,” the memo advised.
The Republican’s diva-like demands are outlined in the internal memo titled “Instructions on Staffing and Driving” and obtained by Politico.
The politician is also quite the backseat driver, demanding that he be informed of “turns and sudden stops” and that his driver avoid “sudden acceleration or braking.”
“The goal is to provide as smooth a ride as possible,” the memo said.
A coat hanger must always be available in the vehicle so Rokita can hang up his coat or jacket.
The 47-year-old, a top contender in Indiana’s competitive GOP Senate race next year, also does not want to be interrupted “with unnecessary conversation” during his precious prep time in the car.
And don’t let him forget his personal items after an event or meeting.
“Each time TER enters the vehicle following an appointment, check with him to make sure he has his phone, his wallet and anything else he may have brought into the meeting (jacket, iPad, etc.),” a bolded and italicized portion of the memo noted.
Aside from just driving, Rokita’s chauffeurs are asked to perform duties more suitable for a press secretary.
Drivers are told to let him know in advance which reporters, with the name and outlet, are expected to attend an event, if and when he’ll take questions and for how long. They’re asked to jot down the reporters’ names and record the Q&A session to ensure the congressman isn’t misquoted.
“Generally less is more when dealing with press,” the memo said.
At the end of the day, another check that Rokita has his phone and wallet must be conducted. The vehicle’s trash bin must be emptied and inventory of “The Football” must be taken and reported to the next day’s driver “ASAP.”
The exhaustive memo was co-authored by campaign spokesman Tim Edson and a former chief of staff.
“There is nothing embarrassing about always being prepared,” said Edson, Rokita’s former communications director.
Edson blamed the memo leak on Rokita’s presumptive Senate challenger, Rep. Luke Messer (R-Ind.).
I’ll go out on a limb and say all of them were by either ground apes, leftists or democrats (but I repeat myself.)
Cops insist they are not related.
Three people were in custody Friday night, including a “strong suspect,” after one police officer was fatally shot and another suffered grave injuries in Kissimmee, Fla., south of Orlando.
At a press briefing, Police Chief Jeff O’Dell said police Officer Matthew Baxter succumbed to his wounds, and Officer Sam Howard was in critical condition, but the “prognosis does not look good,” O’Dell said.
Initial reports said both officers had died.
The two officers were in the area of Palmway and Cypress, checking out a report of a suspicious person at approximately 9:27 p.m. Soon afterward, a 9-1-1 call came in, saying the officers had been shot, O’Dell said.
The area is known for high drug activity, the chief said.
O’Dell said the officers did not return fire, and it appears they were “surprised.”
When asked by reporters if the officers were ambushed, O’Dell said, “It’s too early to tell, but it’s leading that way.”
Only one of the suspects was believed to have been armed, the chief said.
Both officers are husbands, and have children. Baxter is married to another Kissimmee police officer.
President Donald Trump took to Twitter to express his condolences.
Also on Friday night, two police officers were shot in Jacksonville, Fla., and two state troopers were shot in Pennsylvania.
A unit of four to five Jacksonville police officers responded to an attempted suicide call late Friday evening. As officers approached the house, the suspect started shooting through a doorway, seriously injuring two officers, Jacksonville police said at a media briefing.
The suspect was shot, and later died at a hospital, police tweeted.
In Pennsylvania, both state troopers were in stable condition and the suspect was killed, authorities said. A press briefing is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Saturday.
The shootings are not related, authorities said.
