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

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?!

NFL Partners With Rapper Jay-Z To Co-Produce Super Bowl Show – ‘Will Inspire Social Change’
This will further destroy the NFL. A sport that Americans once loved. This will only be a disaster for the NFL.
Majority of America is beyond tired of this Anti-American garbage. So..continue on, NFL. You will continue to lose more and more supporters.
The NFL has announced that it has turned over a large portion of the decision making process for the Super Bowl halftime show, as well as other music and entertainment decisions, to social justice activist and rapper Jay-Z and his Roc Nation entertainment company.
Given the activist politics of Jay-Z and his wife, Beyonce, league entertainment choices will likely be heavily driven by “woke” motivations.
On Tuesday, the NFL announced that it was partnering with Roc Nation for the upcoming Super Bowl halftime show. But subsequent reports have noted that Jay-Z’s entertainment company will have far more responsibilities than just programming the 2020 Super Bowl.
According to ESPN, the league is handing over most of its entertainment decisions to Jay-Z, including, making him the co-producer of the Super Bowl.
The rapper celebrated the move:
“With its global reach, the National Football League has the platform and opportunity to inspire change across the country,” the rapper said in a statement. “Roc Nation has shown that entertainment and enacting change are not mutually exclusive ideas — instead, we unify them. This partnership is an opportunity to strengthen the fabric of communities across America.”
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell also touted the partnership:
“Roc Nation is one of the most globally influential and impactful organizations in entertainment,” Goodell said on Wednesday. “The NFL and Roc Nation share a vision of inspiring meaningful social change across our country. We are thrilled to partner with Roc Nation and look forward to making a difference in our communities together.”
The deal hands Jay-Z responsibility for “creation and distribution of music content across multiple music and streaming services, as well as consult and collaborate on the production, promotion, and marketing of live music events,” ESPN wrote. Continue Reading

U.S. Fencer Pulls A ‘Kaepernick’ On Medal Stand During Anthem – WATCH
These people are supposed to representing our country..and instead, are a total embarrassment. If you don’t love this country.. don’t put on that uniform. In fact, you are free to leave.
What a perfect opportunity for Race Imboden to defect. He should renounce his US citizenship, and say goodbye forever to the country he hates so much.
Men and women have died for our freedom. Precious blood was spilled for this country. If you hate it.. why are you here? Why represent a country you hate? Liberals are hate-filled lunatics.
These people don’t represent us!
A member of the U.S. men’s fencing team took a knee during the Star-Spangled Banner on Friday, at the Pan American Games in Lima, Peru.
Race Imboden an Olympic medalist and member of the U.S. men’s foil team, took a knee after his team won the gold at the games. He also took to Twitter to exclaim how ashamed he is of the United States, the Washington Post reported.
“Racism, Gun Control, mistreatment of immigrants, and a president who spreads hate are at the top of a long list,” Imboden tweeted. “I chose to [sacrifice] my moment today at the top of the podium to call attention to issues that I believe need to be addressed. I encourage others to please use your platforms for empowerment and change”

Imboden now shares a bronze with Canadian Maximilien van Haaster for men’s foil and was part of the U.S. team’s gold win in team foil at this year’s Pan Am Games.
Mark Jones, vice president of communications for the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee, issued a statement noting that Imboden violated the rules of the games with his protest against the United States.
“Every athlete competing at the 2019 Pan American Games commits to terms of eligibility, including to refrain from demonstrations that are political in nature. In this case, Race didn’t adhere to the commitment he made to the organizing committee and the USOPC,” Jones said.
“We respect his rights to express his viewpoints, but we are disappointed that he chose not to honor his commitment. Our leadership are reviewing what consequences may result,” Jones added.
Imboden’s teammates, Gerek Meinhardt, and Nick Itkin, both stood at attention during the national anthem. Continue Reading
