The NFL Nixes Another Good Deed

The National Football League has made the headlines recently. Unfortunately, not for the right reasons.

This weekend was the kickoff of the 2016 NFL season. Being that it long-ago supplanted baseball as America’s pastime, one would expect it to be in the news – that and fantasy football has become a nationwide obsession.

Yet it is the ridiculous antics of a few players which have stolen the headlines. It’s well known what the San Francisco quarterback did during the preseason. By sitting or taking a knee during the pregame national anthem, he has injected politics into the NFL. Since then, a few others have followed suit, claiming they too are taking a stand (or a seat, or a knee) against racism and oppression in America – the pet cause of charlatans and race-hustlers.

And for the antics that detract from the game we love, the NFL does nothing and says little – no fines, no game suspensions – nothing. We all know these fools have every right to protest and support their phony cause – and to that I am in full agreement. read more

All White College Students Are Racist

I listen to Jay Severin at the Blaze Radio Network from time to time, although not as often as I used to. Back in the old (or at least older) days, Jay had his own show broadcast here in New England.

One of the catch phrases he used, when a college kid called into his program was, “best time of your life kid.” He still uses the phrase and for him, being an “older gentleman,” I’m sure that was true.

However, I don’t think he can necessarily say that and it be categorically so any longer, especially if you are white.

Many colleges today are discriminating against white students  and doing it outwardly and without shame – none more than Pomona College in Claremont, California.

Posters have been seen plastered all over the dorms entitled, “How to Be a (better) White Ally.” Reading the poster, I think it could have been crafted by the New Black Panther Party or Black Lives Matter. It is that offensive.

The poster should actually just read: “Whitey Go Home,” or “We Don’t Want Your Kind at This School.” And that’s not far from the truth, as “Pomona College had several events last year that white students were not allowed to attend.” read more

America Is Traveling at Warp Speed Toward Racial Insanity

It’s not often that sports and politics cross paths. Sure, the fact that the sports press is more liberal than their news counterparts is widely known, or should be, but I’m speaking of the athletes.

Every once in a while athletes will take a political or cultural stand, but it is still the exception, which is why the Colin Kaepernick story has garnered so much press.

The San Francisco 49ers quarterback sat during the national anthem prior to the start of an NFL preseason game a couple of weeks ago and again, took a knee, rather than stand during the last. He says he is doing this to show solidarity for oppressed blacks.

It’s one thing for a grown man to voice his opinion in such a way, but it’s quite another to consciously or unwittingly influence children to mimic his actions. It seems Kaepernick’s antics have “inspired” six fifth-graders to take a knee during the reciting of their school’s Pledge of Allegiance. read more

In Defense of Anthony Weiner

by: the Common Constitutionalist

NEW ITEM: Scroll down for the audio version of this article. 

I think we can all agree that Anthony Weiner, aka Carlos Danger, is a big steaming bag of pooh. I mean – taking a photo of one’s barely covered man sausage with your young son right next to you in bed? That’s pretty low – even for him. Actually, I guess it isn’t being that this is evidently not the first time he has used the kid as a “chick magnet” (his words).

Sadly, I’m sure he’s not the only dad doing this sort of thing. He’s just the most famous – and possibly the dumbest. That, or he is so desperate for any attention, he just doesn’t care.

However – is Weiner really doing anything worse than the potential “first dude” has done? When you think about it, Weiner appears to just be the 21st century Bill Clinton. Does anyone think that if Bubba had available this type of smartphone technology in the `80s and `90s, he wouldn’t have used it to its fullest? Darn right he would’ve.

In fact, Bill Clinton is a much bigger dirt bag than Carlos. Weiner’s hook-ups at least appear to be consensual, where as – well – we all know about Clinton’s abhorrent exploits. Yet Bill Clinton is treated like a rock star, while Weiner, whose marriage appears loosely patterned after Bill and Hil, is just a disgraced deviant. read more

‘Shoot-to-kill mentality’ hits home for Dwayne Wade

Last month (July 13), four black NBA superstars took the stage at this years politically correct sports awards show, the ESPYs.

Of course anything on or having to do with the sports network ESPN or its affiliates is left-leaning and politically correct – quite often more rabidly than the liberal news media.

We learned that fact long ago (2003), when the network hired Rush Limbaugh to do a segment on its popular football show, “NFL Sunday Countdown,” telling him he could say anything he likes and then firing him for doing just that. read more

Of All People – Hillary Tries to Play the Race Card

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Yesterday I was critical of Donald Trump’s new and evidently “evolving” illegal immigration policy. Some Trump supporters didn’t take kindly to any criticism of their man. That’s too bad, because we constitutionalists were in favor of Trump’s original hard line on illegal aliens. It’s a shame he appears to be softening.

But in order to be fair and intellectually honest, we will also defend The Donald when the Dragon Queen, Hillary Clinton, throws false accusations his way.

Of all the things Hillary could accuse Trump of, she and her team have decided it is time to play the tried-and-true democrat race card. Historically this tactic has worked quite effectively against most, if not all Republicans – mainly because most Republicans are too spineless to fight back and tell the truth about the Democrat Party.

We can only conclude that most on the right still have not educated themselves on the roots of the Democrat party and instead accept the false narrative that Democrats are the champions of minorities. Of course, it is the exact opposite. The Democrat party has been the party of racism, segregation and eugenics, whereas it was the Republicans who fought for equal rights and the closing, or at least defunding of the black eugenics factory, Planned Parenthood.

Obama was obviously able to play the race card because he is… well… black. But for Hillary to attempt it is a laugh riot. Her and Bill, throughout their history in public life together, have befriended and lionized many known racists. read more

2 sets of justice in medieval America

Unlike Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton is apparently fighting for the little guy. She wants the top of the income pyramid to finally pay their fair share. For too long the little guy has been getting the shaft, while the rich and privileged get away with not paying up, not being held accountable – and Hillary will rectify this.

It’s almost as if there are two systems in place in America – one for the rich and powerful and one for Hillary’s little guys – just like it was in medieval Europe: justice for the lords and a different kind of justice for the serfs.

This is the state of America’s justice system today. More than any, officials in government are supposed to be beyond reproach. Due to the trust bestowed them by the citizens, they are held to a higher standard. But some abuse this trust. Some government officials use their position to enrich themselves. Ironically, Hillary Clinton (and husband Bill), the defender of the little guy, is the biggest abuser of them all. read more

I Guess Black Lives Don’t Matter

by: the Common Constitutionalist

I thought black lives mattered – at least certainly more than white lives. Is this not the refrain we’ve been hearing since the lawful and necessary shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson last year?

Heck – we’ve heard and seen whites get booed off the stage for having the nerve to claim that “All Lives Matter.” “Oh no they don’t,” say the Black Lives Matter (BLM) indoctrinated faithful.

Yet it seems black lives only matter when they want them to protest, riot and destroy others’ property. When it comes to actually bettering black lives, they don’t really give a crap. In fact, it’s worse than that. Prominent blacks and black organizations campaign against the bettering of the very people they lie about representing.

Other than the obvious, the obvious being that they are black, what do Barack Obama, the NAACP and BLM all have in common? Sure, they are all radicals, but one else? Answer: all three oppose improving educational opportunities for black children.

It’s well known that Obama sends his children to the upscale posh private school, Sidwell Friends, at a cost of almost $40,000 per student per year. That’s more than most inner-city black families make in a year. read more

Podcast – Taxman’s Coming for Your Gold Medal – NFL Tells Cowboys They Can’t Honor the Cops – Hillary’s Tax Return is a Sham

Who knew Gold medals were taxed. Well, we should have – everything else is. Yes – American athletes return triumphantly from Rio proudly adorned with the hardware they worked their whole lives to win – only to be greeted at the gate by the taxman.

Black Lives Matter strikes again – and this time without saying a word. The NFL has denied a request by the Dallas Cowboys to place a sticker on their helmets honoring the Dallas Police Department – and all cops. Somehow it would stir up controversy and make a political statement.

Hillary has released one year, 2015, of her and Bill’s tax returns and charitable giving – but just one year. I discuss what a set-up this is and what a shame the return actually is.

I also quickly touch on the DNC staffer who was recently murdered and the LGBT Olympics. read more

Obama – the Great Divider

from my Joke Man Fred:

After the terrorist slaughter of policemen in Dallas, it’s fair to say that Barack Obama might well be the worst president in U.S. history. Here’s why.

The keynote of America’s domestic politics for the last 60 or 70 years—from sometime between the Supreme Court’s 1954 Brown v Board of Education school desegregation decision and the 1964 Civil Rights Act—has been the nation’s effort to undo the heinous wrongs that slavery and Jim Crow perpetrated on black Americans ever since the first slave was brought here in the 1640s. I am old enough to have had friends who were Freedom Riders, white college kids who went to Mississippi to register black citizens to vote. One I’ll never forget returned with tales of old people, whom legal chicanery had blocked from voting all their lives, marveling in almost Biblical language that such a miracle could be occurring in their own lifetimes, in their own towns. I remember how Sherriff Bull Connor turned the fire hoses and German Shepherds on those civil rights protesters, black and white, in Birmingham, Alabama, in 1963, and how that same year governor George Wallace stood at the door of the University of Alabama to prevent the enrollment of two black students, proclaiming himself Jefferson Davis’s spiritual heir and vowing “segregation forever!” But what I most remember is skinny Deputy Attorney General Nicholas Katzenbach walking heroically down that hostile Alabama street—alone, but followed by federal marshals—to force Wallace to stand aside and let the two students enter. It was as heart stopping as Gary Cooper walking toward the showdown on Main Street in High Noon.

I also remember how civil rights zeal turned into zealotry. We made the integration of our schools, and then the closing of the black-white achievement gap, our principal educational goal for half a century, with the unintended consequence that we neglected actual education and turned urban schools into machines for perpetuating black failure. Judge-ordained busing in Boston, completely contrary to the terms of the Civil Rights Act, made the schools more segregated than ever. A judge-ordained Kansas City school-funding-equalization order, forcing local taxpayers to shell out $2 billion  over  a decade, including building a bizarrely unnecessary Olympic swimming pool, produced no educational gains whatsoever and proved to anyone with eyes to see that money was not the key to racial equality in education.

Then, the colleges turned to affirmative action in admissions, the ed schools taught their students not how to teach or what facts they needed to transmit but only “social-justice” ideology, and deans of diversity began to outnumber actual teachers on college campuses. The professors themselves brought the stupendous achievements of Western culture under the suspicion of creating nothing but racial inequality (and later an unimaginably broad smorgasbord of inequity). They replaced Plato with Ta-Nehisi Coates. read more
