    An attorney representing former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sharply criticized rapper Jay-Z on Tuesday after Jay-Z met with NFL officials to speak about social justice issues while Kaepernick remains unemployed. SNIP Mark Geragos, who is representing Kaepernick in his dealings with the NFL, told ABC News that the partnership amounted to crossing an "intellectual picket line." "This deal between Jay-Z and the NFL crosses the intellectual picket line," Geragos told ABC. "I can confirm to you that the deal was already done prior to any conversation that [Kaepernick] had with Jay-Z and he certainly didn’t have any conversations...

    Colin Kaepernick. Remember him? Below-average quarterback. Above-average poseur. Not “activist,” not really. Activists actually say stuff. Kaepernick almost never says anything. He’s like the Queen or most popes — you have to read the deep-background musings of supposed members of his inner circle to get a clue as to what he might be thinking. Kaepernick hasn’t played in the NFL since 2016, when anyway he was merely the disappointing starter on its worst team, and given that dozens of quarterbacks have entered the league since then and that he’s been gathering rust like the Tin Woodman for three years, he...

    Unlike his assumed hero, Colin Kaepernick, Olympic fencer Race Imoden has a pretty good lock on his career: he has a day job as a super man-child model. Race Imoden’s publicity photo for the Wilhelmina Agency Why do you care? You probably don’t but Race (who names their kid “Race” – weenie liberal parents, that’s who) is the Olympic fencer who took a knee on the podium last week after his team won gold at the Pan Am games. Then used the opportunity to tweet his feeble mind: Never mind that he signed a statement promising to refrain from demonstrations...

    The summer season has ripped off the thin scab that covered an American wound, revealing a festering disagreement about the nature and origins of the United States. The San Francisco Board of Education recently voted to paint over, and thus destroy, a 1,600-square-foot mural of George Washington's life in San Francisco's George Washington High School. Victor Arnautoff, a communist Russian-American artist and Stanford University art professor, had painted "Life of Washington" in 1936, commissioned by the New Deal's Works Progress Administration. A community task force appointed by the school district had recommended that the board address student and parent objections...

    A new Gallup poll shines a spotlight on the deep political divide in America and surely points to what the upcoming presidential election will be about. Gallup asked, "How proud are you to be an American?" Seventy-six percent of Republicans said "extremely proud" compared with 22 percent of Democrats. Broken down by age, 63% of those over 65 said "extremely proud," and only 24% of those 18 to 29. This tells us something about Nike's recent move to pull its Betsy Ross flag sneakers from the marketplace, having taken guidance from its ex-football star anti-hero, now-Nike corporate spokesman, Colin Kaepernick....

    In the last two weeks, America has learned that a bevy of heretofore relatively uncontroversial objects and ideas are, in fact, extraordinarily controversial. We have learned that the Betsy Ross American flag is irredeemably racist. We have learned that Disney casting a black woman as Ariel in the live-action remake of "The Little Mermaid" is supposedly supremely disquieting for a racist America. We have learned that opposing federally mandated forced busing means that you are a secret bigot, so long as you are named Joe Biden. Or perhaps we haven't learned any of those things. Perhaps all of this is...

    Nike and Colin Kaepernick became the center of attention yet again last week after Nike withdrew an Independence Day-themed shoe called the “Air Max 1 USA," which featured the “Betsy Ross Flag” on its heel. The Nike pulled the shoe after the former NFL quarterback argued that Nike shouldn’t release a product which contained an “offensive” symbol with connections to an “era of slavery."Like clockwork, calls to boycott Nike erupted online. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) took to Twitter to encourage others to join him and #WalkAwayFromNike, with his call retweeted over 26,000 times in 5 days.“I love America. I stand...

    Kaepernick is a fool. Quoting without knowing the full content is a bad idea. There are many now who have already said read the full speech, but for some that just isn't good enough. Many don't have the spare time to sit and read. I can make this more convenient for those of you. Here is the option to listen instead of reading. Download if you like. These are free in the public domain. Here is the full text just in case: https://teachingamericanhistory.org/library/document/what-to-the-slave-is-the-fourth-of-july/

    The Federalist ^ | July 5, 2019 | Tristan Justice
    Many elites in the media this week have cited abolitionist Frederick Douglass’s famous 1852 speech “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?” as evidence of the former slave’s condemnation of America, and another excuse for them to express derision about the United States on its birthday. If they read the whole speech, however, they’d see it is in fact a testament of support for our nation’s founding principles and gives even more reason to celebrate the Fourth of July and American patriotism.The historic speech was given on July 5, 1852, in Corinthian Hall to a white audience of...

    The heat Nike is taking over the controversy surrounding Colin Kaepernick and the Betsy Ross Flag Shoe is having another effect ... enhancing the brand's appeal to investors. Nike shares are surging in the wake of the company's decision to recall its special Betsy Ross Flag Air Max 1 USA sneakers after Kaepernick complained the 13-star flag design was offensive because it's been co-opted by several white nationalist groups. Since Nike pulled the plug on the sneakers following Kaepernick's objections earlier this week, Nike shares have seen a 2 percent increase since Tuesday, adding nearly $3 BILLION to the shoe...

    Colin Kaepernick’s history teachers should be ashamed of themselves. They either failed to teach him real history, or they succeeded in indoctrinating him into a false political narrative. Either way, he was short-changed and missed out on one of history’s greatest stories. To associate the 1776 American flag with slavery is to miss the purpose and genius of the American Revolution. The former football player turned well-paid corporate activist put the kibosh on a special edition Nike shoe because it sported the Betsy Ross flag on the heel. I’m sure you’ve heard that much. Kaepernick’s reason, which I’m sure you’ve...

    Colin Kaepernick has been slammed for using chunks of Frederick Douglass' famous Fourth of July address on Twitter to criticize police brutality and claim racism in America without including the sections of his speech where he told of his love of country and hope for the future. The controversial former San Francisco 49ers shared a video on Twitter on Thursday in which parts of Douglass' lengthy 1852 speech were orated over a montage of slavery depictions and videos of police shooting unarmed African Americans. He tweeted beneath it: 'What have I, or those I represent, to do with your national...

    FULL TITLE: Rush Limbaugh: Left 'scared out of their wits' about Trump July 4 parade, Kaepernick 'fooled everybody' Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh said Wednesday that liberals are terrified by President Trump's planned parade to celebrate Independence Day. "The flag makes people tend to think more like a Republican. It tends to make people support Republicans. It tends to inspire patriotic thoughts," said Limbaugh, citing a Harvard study. "The left remembers this, and they are terrified of tomorrow [Thursday], especially the people actually in Washington," Limbaugh continued. "I think that, truth be told, they are scared out of...

    There is almost nothing to say about the fact that Nike recalled a patriotic American flag shoe after Colin Kaepernick complained. It is so self-evidently absurd and disgraceful — such a cowardly surrender to political correctness — that analysis is rendered moot. Kaepernick reportedly felt that the flag — a Betsy Ross flag from the American Revolution — somehow represents slavery. Of course, if the American flag represents slavery, then every flag of every country 200 years old or over also represents slavery. Slavery was a universally accepted institution all across the world for thousands of years. The one notable,...
