When the virtue signaling isn’t virtuous enough. – Opening week NFL games were chock-full of kneeling players and virtue signaling designed to appease activist players and the openly-Marxist Black Lives Matter domestic terror group. But the head activist player – who hasn’t actually played in four years – was not mollified by it all. Not mollified at all.
Colin Kaepernick, still angry that no NFL team wanted his poisonous presence in their locker room after he started the trend of kneeling during the national anthem at the suggestion of his Marxist girlfriend, lashed out at the league on Sunday, calling all of the virtue signaling what it really is: Propaganda.
From a story at Fox News:
Kaepernick appeared to be angered by the NFL pushing its social justice initiatives while his former teammate Eric Reid remained a free agent to start the season.
“While the NFL runs propaganda about how they care about Black Life, they are still actively blackballing Eric Reid (@E_Reid35) for fighting for the Black community. Eric set 2 franchise records last year, and is one of the best defensive players in the league,” Kaepernick wrote.
Reid is one of the best free agents available. He played and started all 16 games for the Carolina Panthers last season. He recorded 130 tackles and four sacks. He joined the Panthers a few weeks into the 2018 season. He recorded 71 tackles and an interception in that season.
Reid and Kaepernick were teammates with the San Francisco 49ers. When Kaepernick started his protest against police brutality and racism, Reid was the first player to kneel with him.
Upon Kaepernick’s departure and elongated free agency, he and Reid filed a grievance against the NFL alleging that owners were conspiring to keep them out of the league because of their protests. The lawsuit was eventually settled and Reid would later sign with the Panthers.
Note the sentence that says, “Reid is one of the best free agents available.” It’s something no one could honestly say about Kaepernick himself, who, after one really stellar season, was a career mediocrity. The lack of interest by any team in signing him after the 49ers released him was not only due to his locker room poison, but due to the fact that his addition to the roster would not improve any of the league’s 32 teams.
The situation with Reid, though, is entirely different. Reid is indeed an outstanding, Pro Bowl-quality talent. Thus, the refusal by a single team to try to sign him out of free agency becomes highly suspicious and reeks of anti-trust behavior by NFL teams.
For once, Colin Kaepernick has a valid point.
What has been the single most useless political asset in this entire election cycle? – If your answer to that question was “What is Mike Bloomberg’s money?” you win today’s edition of Election Jeopardy.
Mini-Mike Bloomberg announced over the weekend that he plans to spend up to $100 million of is own personal fortune on anti-Trump ads in Florida in an effort to try to get the foundering Biden/Harris campaign over the top in the Sunshine State.
From a story at Politico:
Billionaire Mike Bloomberg announced Sunday he would spend as much as $100 million in Florida to defeat President Donald Trump in his must-win state.
The infusion of cash comes as polls indicate a tightening of the race between Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden, who are deadlocked in a recent Marist Poll, and as Floridians start voting by mail at the end of the month.
To that end, “communicating with Hispanic voters will be a key part” of Bloomberg’s effort, which will primarily focus on digital and TV ads, according to a press release issued on behalf of his Independence USA political committee.
Before any of you goes into a panic over this infusion of cash, let’s all remember that Mini-Mike reportedly wasted $800 million of his own personal fortune on his own run for the Democrat nomination, principally because he believed that none of the other candidates, including Biden, were capable of beating President Trump.
That investment of Mini-Mike cash resulted in ZERO primary victories and the accumulation of a total of 59 delegates to the party’s fake convention. The value of Mini-Mike cash has proven to be nothing to fear.
Well, this doesn’t fit Joe Biden’s fracking narrative at all. Not at all. – During an interview with CNN’s Fake Jake Tapper on Sunday, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti revealed the lie in Joe Biden’s denials about wanting to ban hydraulic fracturing:
The Democrat mayor of Los Angeles says it’s “clear” that Joe Biden opposes fracking and wants to “rapidly wind it down.”

Well, yeah, that really is clear to pretty much everyone other than lying, dissembling fake journalists like Tapper.
If you live in any oil and gas producing state in America, a vote for Biden/Harris is a vote for economic suicide. That’s clear as well.
Thanks for clearing that up, Mayor.
Meanwhile, in Portland, Oregon… – The 100+ days of rioting in Riot City USA have been called off by the Democrat Party sponsors due to bad polling. But this video clip from Sunday’s riot in Lancaster, PA captured by real journalist Andy Ngo just made my day:

That’s just glorious.
