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

“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.

“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.

Trans Athlete Wins Two Gold Medals At 2019 Pacific Games
It’s time that women athletes fight against this insanity. We have young women that have spent years training..only to have that chance of winning taken from them and given to a man. A man who can’t beat other men. These medals should be taken away.
Where all these so-called feminists? Amazing how you don’t see them boycotting against this.
The root cause of this insanity is organizations and groups that allow them to do it…that think they’re being ‘tolerant’ and ‘inclusive’.
As long as these mentally sick people are allowed then it will keep happening. They are trying to normalize this behavior. We are in a full culture war, folks.
Via The Daily Wire:
Over the weekend, a man who identifies as a woman won two gold medals at the 2019 Pacific Games in Samoa.
Laurel Hubbard, 41, formerly Gavin Hubbard, “won two gold medals and a silver in the three heavyweight categories, for women weighing more than 87 kilograms, or 192 pounds, finishing first in the snatch-lift and combined categories and second in the clean-and-jerk,” The Washington Times reported.
CaldronPool.com reported, “In second place was Samoa’s 18-year-old weightlifter Feagaiga Stowers, who won her nation’s second gold medal last year after Hubbard was forced to withdraw due to an elbow injury.” Stuff.co added, “Lifting for gold comes after revelations that Hubbard was charged with careless driving causing injury after her vehicle fishtailed on a sharp bend near Queenstown on October 24, 2018. Her car hit a vehicle carrying an Australian couple in their 60s. The male driver spent nearly two weeks in Dunedin Hospital and needed major spinal surgery on returning to Australia.”
Stuff also reported that Hubbard sought the permanent suppression of his name after the accident, and a judge ruling in February supported suppressing the name until the end of September 2019, but Stuff appealed, and last week the High Court overruled the judge from February. Stuff noted, “Justice Gerald Nation said Judge Farnan had made a number of errors and Hubbard’s potential distress did not meet the legal test for suppression.” Continue Reading

Megan Rapinoe: Our Soccer Team ‘Has Managed To Make People Proud Again’
Yesterday, on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” U.S. Women’s Soccer World Cup championship team co-captain Megan Rapinoe credited her team with making “people proud again.” I could not disagree more. They disrespected the American flag by deliberately dropping it on the ground when they won and were very anti-American and anti-President Trump as well. I am deeply ashamed of them representing the U.S. in soccer and I think most Americans agree with that sentiment.
Rapinoe said, “I think the opportunity is in everyone’s exhaustion of the fighting and the negative, and our team has managed to make people proud again, to capture people’s interest, and make them want to do something. I think people are asking the question, how can we rally around this team? And in that, what the team stands for, whether it’s equal pay or racial equality or LGBTQ rights, I think we’ve just managed to give people hope, and with that, we need to do the next step, which is to actually take the progress step.”
The 34-year-old forward and co-captain of the team, who skyrocketed to national fame in recent weeks for her incredible performance in the world soccer championship as well as her outspoken opposition to President Trump, said Americans are tired of all the negativity. Yep, and it’s coming from her and her comrades.
From the HuffPost:
“Rapinoe, who is openly gay, has repeatedly accused the Trump administration of pushing policies that further threaten the rights of marginalized communities, such as LGBTQ people and immigrants. She made headlines last month when she told a reporter that she’s “not going to the fucking White House” if her team wins the World Cup.
“We’re not gonna be invited,” she added. “I doubt it.”
“Trump quickly fired back at Rapinoe on Twitter, claiming she should first “WIN” the World Cup before talking about a White House invitation. Her team subsequently beat the Netherlands 2-0 last Sunday to win the championship.
“Megan should never disrespect our Country, the White House, or our Flag, especially since so much has been done for her & the team,” the president said.
“Rapinoe on Sunday called on her team’s fans to continue to take action on issues they’ve supported, including racial equality, LGBTQ rights, and equal pay.

“Asked if she’s considering a future run for political office, Rapinoe said she’s not sure she’s qualified to do so.
“There’s no qualifications for office these days,” host Chuck Todd told her.
“That’s true. Up to 44, I guess there was,” Rapinoe responded, an apparent jab at Trump’s total lack of political experience prior to becoming the 45th president of the United States.
“She continued: “You know what? I’m going to fight for equal pay every day, for myself, for my team and for every single person out there ― man, woman, immigrant, U.S. citizen, person of color, whatever it may be ― equal pay, as the great Serena Williams said, until I’m in my grave.”’

What Rapinoe misses is that no one cares if she’s gay and she’s ruining the sport for everyone out there. She obviously loves identity leftist politics more than her country. Frankly, she should just stay in Europe where she is far more at home.
And she is definitely not qualified for political office. We don’t need drama queens and grandstanding narcissists… we need those that love America, know what she stands for, and don’t malign her at every opportunity. That is definitely not Rapinoe.
