Gee, I thought that the so-called Rev. Jesse Jackson had gone off into the sunset after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Guess not. Now he figures he needs to insert himself into the Kaepernick controversy. It went about as well as you would expect.
Hate preacher Jesse Jackson had the nerve to justify Kaepernick kneeling during the National Anthem. He figures since Tim Tebow took a knee, then why not? Well, for one thing, Tebow was giving thanks to God. Kaepernick was spreading hate to cops, first responders and America in general. Capiche?
Jackson calls it hypocrisy against Kaepernick: “It’s interesting that when Tim Tebow took a knee, it was accepted,” Jesse tells TMZ Sports. “Kaepernick takes a knee and he’s rejected. Both of them took a knee in protest of what they believed in. One was religion. One was for justice. Okay.” They are not even close to being equivalent but remember that Jackson sees things through a liberal lens.
Tell me again why anyone would listen to a corrupt, disgraced politician like Jesse Jackson? Meh.
Jesse Jackson Says Nobody Hated Tim Tebow for Taking Knee, So Why Kaepernick? https://t.co/jJ9RZpir6n
— TMZ (@TMZ) September 12, 2018
And as I recall, Tim Tebow kneeling was not accepted by everyone and he got a ton of blowback over it. He was widely mocked for his deep Christian faith and he was not “protesting” anything.
Tebow didn’t kneel and pray during the National Anthem. He did it after touchdowns and on the sidelines sometimes, which became a meme for a little while (Tebowing). And I might remind everyone that Tebow also didn’t wear pig socks to practice and don a Fidel Castro shirt. See the difference here?
CBS Sports wrote in 2017 about Jackson defending Kaepernick on kneeling:
“The 2017 regular-season is less than two weeks away and Colin Kaepernick remains out of work. Depending on who you ask, the reasons vary from “he’s being blackballed by the league because he knelt during the national anthem last season” (as a form of protest against social injustice, it should be noted) to “he just hasn’t played well enough the last few years.”
“Rev. Jesse Jackson firmly falls into the former category. On Friday, he said during an appearance on “Real Time with Bill Maher” that NFL owners “have colluded” to keep Kaepernick from playing.
“They have decided not to have him play and he should have the right to play and express himself at the same time,” he told Maher, adding later, “He’s not burning the flag, he’s not hustling drugs to teammates, he’s not shooting people with guns.'”
No, he’s just inciting violence against police officers and others who uphold the law. No biggie huh?
Jackson has been in Kaepernick’s camp concerning the kneeling issue since the beginning. He calls it a civil rights issue which it isn’t. But hey, it’s a social justice warrior issue and what liberal doesn’t love and defend that politically correct hot button these days?
And the more you see of Jackson, who he hangs with and what he says, the more you see corruption bubbling to the surface. From AZ Central in August of this year:
“Civil-rights leader the Rev. Jesse L. Jackson Sr. visited The Arizona Republic newsroom Wednesday to chat about a variety of issues.
“He praised U.S. Sen. John McCain, criticized President Donald Trump and called out local white church leaders for not taking a stand on behalf of detained immigrant children.
“Jackson is in town to speak at the A. Philip Randolph Institute’s annual education conference at the Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak. The conference brings together activists and allies to discuss social and economic justice for working families.
“Working people must fight to work and keep the country strong,” he told The Arizona Republic.
“The civil-rights leader told the room of journalists that an unusual level of violence, growing levels of poverty and wealth extremes are some of the issues that concern him.
“Learn to live together,” he said. “That’s our great challenge. That’s part of the great American narrative.'”
So not only is Jackson for Kaepernick and against police, he’s also for the unions and he adored McCain and despises President Trump and his immigration policies. No one is surprised by that, but it says an awful lot nonetheless.
In the end, it all comes down to race baiting with Jackson:
“Kaepernick is being punished for expressing his beliefs. He stands in a long tradition of African-American champions who were punished for stepping out of line. Jack Johnson, the first African-American world heavyweight boxing champion, sparked race riots across the country when he won the title in 1908. He further crossed racial boundaries by “consorting” with white women, three of whom he married. He was convicted of violating the Mann Act for transporting a woman across state lines for immoral purposes — for an affair that took place before the act was even passed into law.”
In the video below, Jackson is shredded over the comparison between Tebow and Kaepernick. He should be… it’s laughable and of course false. Jackson should be brutally destroyed every time he makes the comparison and this is a good start.
Jesse Jackson compares Colin Kaepernick to who?!

Tom Brady Yells ‘Reagan, Reagan!’ During Super Bowl And The Responses Are Hilarious
In one of the coolest moments in football history (as far as I’m concerned), New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made an unusual call during a play last night during the Super Bowl. Brady stepped to the line of scrimmage during the third quarter of the Super Bowl on Sunday night, took one look at how the Los Angeles Rams’ defense was squared up and decided to change the play right then and there. And it set social media on fire all over again.
Brady could clearly be heard on a microphone invoking the name of President Ronald Reagan. “Reagan! Reagan!” Brady yelled. I was already rooting for the Pats but they won my heart forever right then and there. How insanely cool is that? After the snap, he handed off the football to running back Sony Michel, who ran toward the right for a 4-yard gain, SB Nation reported.
Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo commented that Brady’s call must have meant “run to the right.” And just like that, the New England Patriots became the official team of the Republican Party. President Trump is loved by Brady and Belichick, as well as others on the team. It would seem that Reagan is held dear as well.
You gotta love the Pats trolling the left in the Super Bowl. Epic. The blue checkmark crowd on Twitter came unglued after this on both the right and the left. Good times.
- “I love it,” one Twitter user noted. “Tom Brady shouted Reagan Reagan, and then they ran to the right. I officially love Tom Brady, and the Patriots are officially the team of the Republican Party.”
- “Tom Brady just called ‘Reagan Reagan,’ which according to Tony Romo means run to the right,” another added. “I now concede that Tom Brady is the GOAT.”
- “CNN Breaking News: Tom Brady yells Reagan Reagan before play. 12-person panel has been assembled to discuss Brady’s clear racism,” another joked.
“Of course Reagan means run to the RIGHT”
— PARIS (@PARISDENNARD) February 4, 2019
Liberals, however, were not amused:
- “Y’all still hype up Tom Brady as if he isn’t a racist trump lover???” one Twitter user asked. “Did y’all not hear the Reagan thing either??? Or are we choosing to ignore those things???”
- “OF COURSE Tom Brady would have an audible named after Ronald Reagan,” another noted. “God I hate Tom Brady.”
- “Ronald Reagan and Tom Brady are both pieces of s**t,” yet another succinctly put it.
Tom Brady calling out “Reagan” as a play name is so politically fraught.
— Josh Gondelman (@joshgondelman) February 4, 2019
The Conservative Tribune posited a very believable reason for the call:
“Third, the Patriots have often been known to thumb their noses at decorum and have no problem running a score up or rubbing their opponents’ faces in the dirt to send a message. It would not be a stretch at all to consider “Reagan” an overtly intentional play call given how much flak Brady, Patriots coach Bill Belichick, and team owner Robert Kraft have gotten from the left about their association and friendship with Trump.”
The New England Patriots won the Super Bowl 13 to 3 much to the horror of leftists across the nation. It was the lowest scoring Super Bowl in history. Corbin Smith of The Daily Beast who wrote that the Patriots are “the preferred team of white nationalists,” must have stroked out over it.
This is Brady’s unprecedented sixth NFL championship. And Reagan lives on. Go Pats!
Tom Brady just yelled “REAGAN!” To call an audible. I assume that’s where the tight end goes in motion and “Trickles down” the side line
Thanks everybody you’ve been a great crowd

Daily Beast: Patriots Are ‘Preferred Team Of White Nationalists’
The Daily Beast’s author Corbin Smith really went off on the New England Patriots before the Super Bowl. Unfortunately for him, the Pats won. In a very weird, racist screed that just oozed anger and hatred, Smith called the Patriots fans Team MAGA,” the living manifestation of “MAGA scum,” and, perhaps most stunning of all, “the preferred team of white nationalists.” He also called Boston a racist city for what it is worth. Boston is no such thing and neither are the Patriots.
Smith said that Patriots fans were complicit in the white nationalism and he really went after Tom Brady, coach Bill Belichick, and the team owner Robert Kraft. He calls them all “supporters” of President Trump. Smith referred to Brady as “unnerving” because at a rally he led a chant of “we’re still here.” Smith claims Brady is a “square-jawed grifter throwing red meat to the hogs at an alt-right rally, screaming at the libs who thought Nancy Pelosi and her gender warriors were gonna keep DECENT AMERICAN FOLKS from BEING HERE.”
Their star quarterback, coach, and owner all supported Trump. But that’s not the only thing that makes the Patriots the preferred team of white nationalists https://t.co/C1KnQNXa9b
— The Daily Beast (@thedailybeast) February 3, 2019
“This past weekend, the Super Bowl-bound New England Patriots held a rally for their sweatiest fans at Gillette Stadium. Brady gave a speech. It ended… unnervingly.
Brady leads a “We’re still here” chant then flings the mic.
— Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) January 27, 2019
“WE’RE STILL HERE! WE’RE STILL HERE! Obviously, Brady is referring to his aging, decrepit, cheating-ass squad’s progression to the big game. But, imagine you didn’t know anything about football, or who Tom Brady was, or anything like that. You would think that you were watching some square-jawed grifter throwing red meat to the hogs at an alt-right rally, screaming at the libs who thought Nancy Pelosi and her gender warriors were gonna keep DECENT AMERICAN FOLKS from BEING HERE.
“Of course, even if you do know stuff about Brady you may still think he’s on his way to pursuing this line of grifting. He flashed a red MAGA hat, an accouterment that is gaining more and more traction as a symbol of white nationalism in America, in his locker back in the primary days. He wasn’t the only one! Patriots’ Coach Bill Belichick wrote a goddamn letter to Trump right before the end of the campaign that basically amounted to an endorsement, that Trump then read on stage. And Pats’ owner Robert Kraft is also his pal, and was even shouted out at Trump’s pre-Inauguration dinner in D.C. for his most deep-pocketed donors.”
This passes for “journalism”? Who at the Daily Beast would let this appear? The media truly doesn’t understand how it continues to undermine itself. https://t.co/gYfoQT21CZ

This was another part of Smith’s twisted argument:
“The whole institution of Boston sports, from root to stem, is tinged with the sort of racism that brought Trump into office. The Boston Red Sox were the last MLB team to desegregate, more than a decade after Jackie Robinson entered the league. The Sox’s first owner, Tom Yawkey, was an infamous racist whose speech was peppered with racial slurs. Larry Bird became a symbol of white resentment during his time in the NBA, his jersey appearing as a symbol of white entitlement to black spaces in Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing. His large teammate, Kevin McHale, was spotted at a Trump rally during the election.
“Look, it doesn’t matter if the Patriots like it or not, they are the official team of American White Nationalism, the MAGA Boys On the Field. You can’t implicitly or explicitly support Trump, who reads speeches written by Stephen Miller as a matter of course, play in a market whose sporting culture is renowned for its racism, have a decade-plus organizational obsession with undersized white receivers, and be called, no shit, the Patriots, without getting the vile Fox News Soup that poisoned half the country on your shirt. Try to put on a bib of distancing yourself, deflecting questions, telling everyone your wife told you to stop talking about it, that shit isn’t gonna work. You’re the MAGA Kid. It’s on you forever. It stalks and haunts you.
“When you root for the Patriots, you are associating yourself with a virulent and revolting strain of politics that seeks to Make America Great Again—which is to say, white, European, English-speaking. And look, I understand if you’ve been rooting for Boston teams your whole life. Fandom is a hard drug to quit. But please, look at yourself, look at who these guys put out for, and reconsider. Think about if you would want to find yourself in a crowd of sweaty, white men chanting WE’RE STILL HERE while a Trump supporter egged you on. Are you one-hundred percent sure you’re comfortable with that?”
“But why do more and more normal Americans dislike the hard working, selfless, daring firefighters of democracy known as journalists?” they asked, without irony https://t.co/fX4bs0bDJx

It was one of the most bizarre pieces I have ever read, even for The Daily Beast. Anyone who even remotely supports Trump is evidently a racist in his eyes. A MAGA hat seen with Brady is surely what set this guy off originally back in 2015. Brady may have been friends and a golfing buddy to Trump but he has never publically supported him.
Belichick wrote a “letter” to Trump that Trump often refers to in his campaign speeches. Kraft donated $1 million to Trump’s inauguration committee and got a “shout out” from Trump at the event. Kraft and Trump have since parted ways over a difference of opinion over NFL players kneeling during the National Anthem.
Why, are they also supported by the Virginia Democratic Party or something? https://t.co/7OlKJ2lbWM

Social media tore Smith to shreds as they should have over this silliness. When President Trump wins a second term, look for this guy to accuse the entire nation of racism and white nationalism. He’s unhinged and needs help. But then, this is The Daily Beast we are speaking of.
