This past weekend the UFC 229 took place where Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov fought each other. There was controversy regarding that fight as Khabib got into trouble for starting a fight with McGregor’s people after the fight had completed.
Shortly after, fighter Nik Lentz won a fight of his own where he made headlines and controversy regarding his comments on Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Red State Observers reported,
“UFC Star Nik Lentz gives a shoutout to Brett Kavanaugh after his win at UFC 229.”
Fox News reported,
“Shortly after winning his UFC 229 match Saturday night, fighter Nik Lentz gave his “homie Brett Kavanaugh” a shout out for being sworn in as a Supreme Court justice.
Lentz defeated Gray Maynard in a second-round TKO in Las Vegas on Saturday. During his post-victory interview, Lentz took the first few moments to congratulate Kavanaugh, who was sworn in as the 114th Supreme Court justice late Saturday hours after the Senate voted to approve him.
“First and foremost, I want to give a shout out to my homie Brett Kavanaugh,” Lentz said. “Way to go, Special K.” He laughs after the comment and went on to answer Joe Rogan’s question. Lentz’s shout out to the new Supreme Court justice received jeers and some applause from audience members at T-Mobile Arena.
Kavanaugh was sworn in as a judge to the nation’s highest court after a contentious confirmation battle. Kavanaugh was accused of sexual assault by three women that nearly derailed his nomination. The accusations led to a second hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee and a weeklong FBI probe.
“The Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight took to the microphone Saturday at UFC 229 after defeating Gray Maynard. Amid laughter, he proclaimed his support for Kavanaugh, who was controversially confirmed into the U.S. Supreme Court hours earlier amid protests and lingering accusations of sexual assault. Lentz gave a “shoutout” to the 53-year-old judge after the Las Vegas TKO win over Maynard as he spoke to UFC commentator Joe Rogan.
Rogan approached Lentz to conduct a post-fight interview when the Minnesota-based lightweight fighter aired his political views. “Alright I’m here with the winner Nik Lentz, first of all Nik congratulations on a victory over a real veteran in Gray Maynard. I think this fight really highlighted the improvement and development you’re striking,” said Rogan.
“First and foremost, I want to give a shout out to my homie Brett Kavanaugh, way to go special K,” the fighter says to Rogan and the camera with a thumbs-up sign and a smile. “And on top of that,” Lentz says, choking off laughter, “…I’m a new fighter.”
Lentz’s odd shoutout to Kavanaugh was followed up by hundreds of “MAGA” comments on his socia media pages expressing their happiness Lentz backed President Donald Trump’s SCOTUS nominee. Several commenters note “Special K” is slang for ketamine or a recreational anesthetic.
“You are my new favorite fighter!!! We all loved you giving a shout out to Justice Kavanaugh!!!!! #maga__” reads one of the fighter’s top Instagram comments. During a post-fight interview with other reporters outside the event, Lentz explained how both he and Conor McGregor have blended entertainment and fighting to get to the top of the sport.
“When I first came into fighting I had an idea of how to get to the top and that idea was, if I worked hard and I beat people up and I kept winning I would get to the top,” said Lentz. “You have to be the complete package.
You have to be good on the mic, you have to be good in the fights, you have to produce entertaining fights. You have to have a mindset and an approach to fighting that is an entertaining idea. Fighting is an entertainment sport. Anybody who says that it’s a regular old sport like football or something where they just care if you win, is a fool.””
Lentz is 34 years old and originally from Minnesota. In the UFC he was a Featherweight from 2012 to 2015 and a Lightweight from 2005 to 2012 and from 2015 until now. As a wrestler, he worked with the Minnesota Martial Arts Academy and the American Top Team where he ranked as a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. He has been wrestling in the NCAA Division I since he started in 2005.
Aside from his Justice Kavanaugh comments, he faced former title challenger the same night, Gray Maynard whom he beat in a TKO in the second round. He dropped his opponent Maynard with a head kick and punches that followed up. Something that was unexpected.

Male Bartender Suing CNN’s Don Lemon For Sexually Charged Assault In The Hamptons
Don Lemon is being sued by a man who claims the anchor sexually harassed and assaulted him while out at a Hamptons hotspot. Classy. And it is graphic. Written statements indicate it was a filthy, sexually-charged attack on a bartender in New York. That bartender’s name is Dustin Hice, 38.
Dustin was out with his co-workers at Murf’s Backstreet Tavern in Sag Harbor on or around July 15th, 2018, when Lemon allegedly assaulted him, detailing the incident in a complaint that was filed over the weekend in New York Supreme Court for Suffolk County court. Lemon, of course, denies the assault.
Unfortunately for Lemon, Dustin recognized him and did his best at first to get Don’s attention. He wanted to buy him a drink. Lemon, 53, responded to Hice’s offer by declining the drink and telling the young man he was ‘just trying to have a good time’, according to the court filing. Lemon is openly gay and married to another man and you would think that he would just tell the guy that. But not so much.
Things got violent and sketchy later that evening between Hice and Lemon according to court documents. “Sometime later that evening, unexpectedly, Mr. Lemon walked towards Plaintiff and his colleagues inside of Murf’s,” states the complaint. “At such time, Mr. Lemon, who was wearing a pair of shorts, sandals, and a t-shirt, put his hand down the front of his own shorts, and vigorously rubbed his genitalia, removed his hand and shoved his index and middle fingers into Plaintiff’s mustache under Plaintiff’s nose.”
“Mr. Lemon intensely pushed his fingers against Plaintiff’s face under Plaintiff’s nose, forcing Plaintiff’s head to thrust backward as Defendant repeatedly asked Plaintiff “Do you like p***y or d**k?”. While saying this, Mr. Lemon continued to shove his fingers into Plaintiff’s face with aggression and hostility.”
Gross. But wait there’s more…
BREAKING: Man Sues CNN’s Don Lemon for Alleged Assault at Sag Harbor Bar https://t.co/7XFOMD0v1y
— Mediaite (@Mediaite) August 13, 2019
From The Daily Mail:
“That is when Hice ‘fled the bar’ and took five to ten minutes collecting himself before he was able to return inside, having recovered from the incident which he claims left him ‘shocked and humiliated’.
“Lemon was gone by that point, while Hice was left ’emotionally devastated by Mr. Lemon’s demeaning unprovoked and offensive assault’.
“A network rep said: ‘The plaintiff in this lawsuit has previously displayed a pattern of contempt for CNN on his social media accounts.
“‘This claim follows his unsuccessful threats and demands for an exorbitant amount of money from Don Lemon. Don categorically denies these claims and this matter does not merit any further comment at this time.’
“Hice, who was working as a bartender at The Old Stove Pub in Sagaponack at the time of the alleged assault, shut down his Twitter account just before filing his lawsuit.
“The registered Republican, who just two months prior admitted to injuring his then-girlfriend when he hurled his keys at her in a domestic dispute, claims that he ‘found it increasingly more difficult to continue working at The Old Stove or socializing at all in the Hamptons.’
“He also alleged that many at Murf’s would reference the incident when they saw him at the bar.
“‘After the incident, customers who came into The Old Stove or saw Plaintiff out about town cheekily ordered lemon drops and laughed at Plaintiff’s expense,’ wrote Hice’s lawyer.
“‘Plaintiff has suffered tremendously as a result of Mr. Lemon’s actions. Following this incident, Plaintiff found himself withdrawn from friends and family, suffered feelings of shame, humiliation, anxiety, anger, and guilt,’ states the complaint.
“It adds: ‘Plaintiff found himself unable to sleep and at times, and suffered from suicidal ideations.
“‘Although Plaintiff, a religious man, tried to find solace within his faith and the church, to this day he continues to suffer emotionally, mentally, and personally from the incident.’
“He also said that he cannot return to New York to work, something the 38-year-old man had hoped to continue doing for years.
“Hice lists ‘assault and battery and both ‘intentional’ and negligent emotional distress’ as his three causes of action in the case.”
Hice reportedly demanded $1.5 million from Lemon before he filed the lawsuit and is seeking damages for emotional pain and suffering after he claimed that the alleged assault left him with “feelings of shame, humiliation, anxiety, anger, and guilt.”
I have no idea if any of this is true but this is happening at the same time that CNN anchor Chris Cuomo is embroiled in his “Fredo” debacle which did happen. A video of CNN’s Chris Cuomo went viral on Tuesday night that showed him threatening to throw a man down a flight of stairs after the man called him “Fredo.”
“I thought that’s who you were,” the man said to Cuomo.
“No, punk-a** b****es from the Right call me Fredo,” Cuomo responded. “My name is Chris Cuomo, I’m an anchor on CNN.”
“Fredo is from ‘The Godfather,’ he was that weak brother and they’re using it as an Italian aspersion,” Cuomo continued. “It’s like the ‘n-word’ for us.”
Cuomo later said, “You’re going to have a f***ing problem.”
The man responded, “What are you going to do about it?”
Cuomo responded: “I’ll f***ing ruin your shit. I’ll f***ing throw you down these stairs like a f***ing punk.”
The video went viral with President Trump weighing in on it, tweeting: “I thought Chris was Fredo also. The truth hurts. Totally lost it! Low ratings @CNN”
When it rains it pours crap at CNN it would seem. So much for professionalism. This is CNN!
VIDEO: Students Sign Petition To Ban White Figure In ‘Walk’ Signals – It’s ‘Oppressive’
Well, we have officially reached ‘peak stupidity’ on campuses. It took some doing to be this moronic but these students are up to the challenge. Campus Reform has a video out where Campus Correspondent Ethan Cai asks students at George Washington University if they’d be willing to sign a petition calling for banning the iconic white stick figure in “walk” signals because they are “oppressive.” Most of the students were more than happy to join the “inclusive” effort. So dumb it hurts.
This is the same university where students voted to “remove and replace” the university’s mascot, George the Colonial, which “is received as extremely offensive not only by students of the University, but the nation and world at large” because it “glorifies the act of systemic oppression,” a petition calling for its removal claimed. The measure was passed in March by 54% of the students who voted. They should not be attending George Washington University then… in fact, they are not fit for higher education at all.
From The Daily Wire:
“In an attempt to test how deep concerns about “offense” and “oppression” go at GW, Campus Reform went undercover to the university to see if students would sign a new petition, this time calling for the banning of white stick figures in walk signals.
“As we students cross the street, we are told by the symbol of a white man when it is okay to cross,” Campus Reform’s faux petition reads. “Many students from diverse backgrounds, including individuals of color, gender fluid individuals, and LGBTQA+ individuals, feel oppressed by this.” Students who sign the petition are supposedly letting the university know that they “vehemently urge the University to consider changing the crosswalk signs.”
“The result: many of the students and even one university faculty member are willing to put their signature on the phony petition. While some students seem to be on board because the alternatives provided by Campus Reform are “so cute” and “lit,” most in the video made a point of saying they can “absolutely” see how someone would be offended by the “white man” telling them what to do and felt that changing the sign helped promote “diversity.”
“One guy pushed back, however, saying he was “ideologically opposed” to the idea. Video below via Campus Reform:
“As for that petition calling for the replacement of George the Colonial, after declaring that the “negatively-charged figure of colonials has too deep a connection to colonization and glorifies the act of systemic oppression,” the students who signed it offered the university some alternatives, including “Hippos,” “Revolutionaries,” or “River horses.”‘
Hippos, y’all. Hippos.
I have never felt in the least oppressed by a white stick figure at a street crossing. Must be my white privilege showing. I have never been paralyzed by bone-chilling fear as a white iconic symbol tells me to get my butt across the street before I get hit by a car. What’s wrong with me? Like RedState says, “We’ve all been there.” Sheesh. Better yet, we can all just cross the street as we’ve always done and not get racist about a digital stick figure. Duh.
Only one student bucked the idea… just one. Bring on Sodom and Gomorrah.
My IQ drops just thinking about this idiocy. How college students devolved into such Marxist troglodytes is a question for the ages… or maybe just for American communists.
