Skip to comments.Why Is Drew Brees Wearing The Name Of An Alleged Rapist On His Helmet?
Posted on 09/02/2020 11:02:50 AM PDT by Kaslin
Roy Moore was dragged through the mud as evil scum for accusations similar to those Jacob Blakes girlfriend made to police, but Blake is being sainted.
ast Friday, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and his team broke with the pack to hold practice as nine other NFL teams canceled theirs in the wake of the police shooting of Jacob Blake. They put Blakes name in big black letters across the front of their helmets in what Sporstcasting.com writer Stephen Sheehan called a powerful visual signal.
New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton explained after practice that, The idea of putting his name on everyone’s helmet was something we felt would be appropriate and they were for it.”
If Blake were an innocent family man who just happened to twitch during a tense encounter with police, this would all seem perfectly appropriate. Theres just one problem: not only was Blake aggressively resisting arrest in the incident thats left him paralyzed, but he also had a warrant out for his arrest due to a charge of sexual assault.
According to research by The New York Post, Blake was forbidden from being at the Kenosha home where he was shot because of an incident at the same residence on May 3, for which there was an open warrant for his arrest. Based on police records, The New York Post describes the alleged assault:
The victim, who is only identified by her initials in the paperwork, told police she was asleep in bed with one of her children when Blake came into the room around 6 a.m. and allegedly said I want my sh-t, the record states.
She told cops Blake then used his finger to sexually assault her, sniffed it and said, Smells like youve been with other men, the criminal complaint alleges.
According to the complaint, Blake then stole the keys from the womans purse and took her car, at which point she called 911. According to her report, about twice a year when he had been drinking heavily, Blake would come around and physically assault her.
Now, it could be that Brees and his teammates hadnt seen this story break when they headed out for practice, as the New York Post published this information that same day. Yet its been five days now, and Brees has still not apologized for lionizing a man who, by the same standard corporate media has applied to other individuals, Blake is a credibly accused sexual assailant, trespasser, and car thief.
Now, Im pretty sure that even before Me Too dominated headlines for months, everybody thought sexual assault was a pretty big deal. Even if you leave aside the facts about the shooting, which are damning enough, the Me Too movement makes the lefts view of Blake as a pure-hearted victim of police brutality grossly hypocritical and worthy of deepest scorn.
By the Me Too standard, even catcalling is considered to be a form of violence, but thats not the standard being applied to Blake. If a Republican congressman had been accused of Blakes actions in a police report by someone who had no apparent ulterior motive, the media would have permanently destroyed his career and reputation. They would have called the police heroes for protecting a woman and her children from what could have been another assault or kidnapping. Instead, they breathlessly covered the fact Blake was temporarily chained to his hospital bed in the aftermath of his fight with police as if it were some colossal injustice without apparently bothering to investigate why that might be the case.
Ever since the Access Hollywood audio surfaced of Donald Trump saying he grabbed women by the [expletive], and that when youre a star, they let you do it, the media have generated a barrage of condemnation any time a Republican strays into indecency or worse. Remember the outrage over the alleged predator of teenagers and Senate candidate Roy Moore? Remember the all-out attack on then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh based on the word of one woman 30 years after the alleged rapeand when that wasnt enough, airing a completely uncredible, fabricated account of a gang rape party where he was supposedly present, all to force him to withdraw his nomination?
Me Too was supposed to be a wake-up call to the world that sexual assault or leveraging power to manipulate women into sexual acts was absolutely unacceptable. Yet now, in 2020, an entire NFL team not only refuses to give up a myth about what happened (as the St. Louis Rams did when they performed their hands up dont shoot virtue signal after Michael Browns death), but put the name of an alleged rapist on their helmets to show respect, either knowingly, or because they felt virtue signaling was more important than waiting for important facts to come out about Blakes character.
Brees caved once to massive pressure against his comments disapproving of kneeling to protest the flag. Instead of learning that the mob will drag you further and further into their radicalism if you submit, he gave in fully. Maybe this experience will serve as a lesson to him: that the left will go to any length to control people, up to and including making an instant martyr out of a man before doing any fact-checking about who he was and downplaying those facts when they do.
CBSs profile of Blake puts the previous accusation of sexual assault in a brief two sentences near the bottom of the article. A lengthy New York Times article weaving in details of both the Blake shooting and the related Kyle Rittenhouse shooting didnt mention the alleged assault at all. CNN likewise buries it in their coverage with a single sentence devoid of detail.
Blakes GoFundMe page has now raised more than $2.1 million. Sympathizers with Black Lives Matter’s push to empty prisons looked the other way while thousands of criminals who were turned loose on the streets over COVID proceeded to prey upon the innocent. Amid strong pushes to defund the police and extensive cover for rioters and looters, dont expect the left to give up their double-standard on violent offenders. The narrative will change faster than you can say Me Too, and if people who care about protecting the vulnerable so much as blink, theyll get away with it.
If Brees and the Saints do care about women and childrens safety, they should apologize to their fans for lionizing a credibly accused rapist.
Because he is dumber than a box of rocks, his agent hates him, and he is caught up in mass hysteria.
Who the hell is watching NFL anyway? I don’t care if he puts Daffy Duck on his helmet.
Waste of money...
That guy is such a COMPLETE tool!
Kneeling is special. Wearing a name on your helmet - with no context - is nothing. Choose your battles.
One should never get in the way of morons as they destroy their business product.
I’m honestly surprised anyone is supporting ANY professional sports any more. But that’s just me.
Once they inject politics in it, even if I agree with them, I’m done. I feel the same about musicians.
Because he’s a cuck?
Because he is a woke self-loather- and not too bright evidently- He obviously is more concerned about spreading lies than he is about looking at facts
Football is a game for children. Most of us grow up.
You took my answer!
The “heroes” of the idiots;
Trayvon Martin....sitting on top of a guy pounding his head into the concrete.....he lost that fight.
Saint Michael Brown...punching a cop in the head while trying to grab his gun......he lost.
Saint Floyd.....died of a drug overdose
Jacob Blake...while being arrested for a felony warrant he was fighting the cops and had a knife....another fight lost.
I am glad I have very little interest in sports and I never could figure out why these people are so idolized.
Brees was just released from the re-education camp.
national felons league supporting other felons.
Brees — and his wife — will do anything our domestic enemies tell him to.
He’s the 2020 recipient of the Alejandro Villanueva Castrato Award.
FACT CHECK: Alleged Third degree sexual assaut. /FB Community Standards.
You have FU money, Drew.
It's obvious isn't it? He has an alleged rapists name on his helmet, because he supports rape! That's my take on it and I am sticking with it.
