When you own the president of the United States, why wouldn’t you high five each other? The orange menace will keep letting these guys get away with murder as long as they keep lining his and his family’s pockets.
From the New York Times:
In a major blow to the N.F.L., Colin Kaepernick achieved a preliminary but important win in his case accusing the league of colluding to keep him off the field because of the player protests during the national anthem that he instigated.
The ruling, essentially granting a full hearing on the dispute, keeps alive a case that the N.F.L. desperately wanted to go away. The league is preparing for a new season beginning next week and is still grappling with how to defuse the smoldering debate over players who demonstrate during the national anthem to protest racism, police brutality and social injustice.
Although the number of players who kneel has varied — and dwindled over the course of last season — since Kaepernick first did so in 2016, during a wave of police shootings of African-American men, the issue continues to divide fans and vex owners. It has also inspired persistent tweets from President Trump, whose calls for players who kneel to be fired has put pressure on owners, many of whom support him.
Kaepernick, once one of the league’s best quarterbacks, has been out of work since March 2017, when he became a free agent before the San Francisco 49ers could release him. As a parade of lesser quarterbacks, at least statistically, found work, he filed a grievance asserting that the league’s owners had conspired to keep him out because of his protests.
Police in Los Angeles fatally shot a former actress from the show “ER” on Thursday after she grabbed a BB gun while they were responding to a welfare check at her apartment, authorities said.
Vanessa Marquez, 49, who played a nurse on the hit 1990s television show, died at the hospital after being shot in the torso, officials said.
It would be nice if someone did a regular comparison on how a real president and how a babyman address major national and international events.
A man with a vendetta against an Annapolis newspaper fired a shotgun through the newsroom’s glass doors and at its employees, killing five and injuring two others Thursday in a targeted shooting, according to police.
The attack appears to be the deadliest involving journalists in the United States in decades.
Local police said the Capital Gazette was targeted in the Maryland incident that prompted heightened security in newsrooms around the country.
A bulletin emailed to Maryland law enforcement officials identified the shooting suspect as Jarrod Ramos, 38. Police were searching an apartment in Laurel, Md., late Tuesday that is tied to Ramos.
Ramos in 2015 lost a defamation case he brought against the paper over a 2011 column he contended defamed him. The column provided an account of Ramos’s guilty plea to criminal harassment of a woman over social media.
And to accompany the generic cartoon, the generic response:
Which means wait a couple of weeks and rerun the whole thing again in a different city with a different body count.
Because Spanky and his gang and the entire GOP are NRA whores. As long as people keep electing them, nuts with guns are going to kill.
Oh, and remember the korrupt krimson klansman did this a couple of days ago:
Thought No. 1:
Thought No. 3:
To stop the NRA, you have to stop the GOP. Otherwise, the shootings will never end. Because you only get bullshit like this from Republicans:
Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick blamed Friday’s massacre at a high school near Houston in part on “too many entrances and too many exits” on the campus, prompting some to mock his perspective as “door control.”
“From what we know, this student walked in … with a long coat and a shotgun under his coat,” said Patrick, a Republican who has an A+ rating from the National Rifle Association. “It’s 90 degrees. Had there been one single entrance possibly for every student, maybe he would have been stopped.”
They will limit the number of doors, but they won’t limit the number of guns.
The NRA terrorist organization strikes again:
Ten people were killed in a shooting Friday morning at a high school here in Southeast Texas by a student wielding two of his father’s guns, authorities said. Police were also investigating explosive devices found at the school and elsewhere in the community.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) said that in addition to the 10 people slain, another 10 people were injured in the rampage at Santa Fe High School, about 34 miles southeast of Houston.
Most of those killed in the carnage were students, said Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, who said the shooting occurred shortly before 8 a.m.
And we later find out this:
This piece of shit needs to be in jail with his miscreant son. Of course he supports the NRA and Fox News.
The leaders of the NRA terrorist group have a saying. You know it. It’s a lie, as this cartoon proves:
Because this happened:
James Shaw Jr. single-handedly wrestled an AR-15 from a man at a Waffle House who had just gone on a shooting rampage in Antioch, Tenn., early Sunday, killing four people.
Shaw said he didn’t consider it heroic when he rushed at the man, took his gun and pushed him out of the restaurant. Shaw was getting breakfast with a friend at the time.
“I’m not a hero. I’m just a regular person, and I think anybody could have did what I did if they are just pushed into that kind of cage,” he said, growing emotional, at a news conference Sunday. “You have to either react or you’re going to fold, and I chose to react because I didn’t see any other way of living, and that’s all I wanted to do. I just wanted to live.”
So this takes care of one lie on the right. Here’s the other lie:
THERE WERE plenty of warning signs about Travis J. Reinking. He once told police that music superstar Taylor Swift was stalking him and hacking into his phone. Another time, he barged into a community pool, jumping into the water wearing a woman’s pink housecoat and challenging lifeguards to a fight. Then there was his arrest by the Secret Service for breaching White House security because he wanted to meet with the president.
Yet there he allegedly was early Sunday morning — just nine months after his White House arrest — at a Waffle House outside Nashville, in possession of an assault-style rifle that authorities say was used to kill four people and wound several others.
This is the typical “white guy is mentally disturbed” mass killer explanation. But look at the names of the people he killed:
Joe R. Perez, 20
DeEbony Groves, 21
Taurean C. Sanderlin, 29
Akilah Dasilva, 23
This is a racially motivated shooting. If Travis J. Reinking has Muhammad as his first name and the victims’ list consisted of Janet, Chrissie, Jack and Mr. Roper, the pussygrabbing Orange Utan would be rearing himself up on his haunches and screaming “TERRORIST, TERRORIST, TERRORIST” to appease his inbred base. But he doesn’t make a sound. Reinking is a right wing gun nut terrorist, encouraged and motivated by the NRA.
Don’t pretend it’s just a mental health issue.
And while we’re talking about mentally disturbed white guys, here’s the latest from Toronto:
The Globe and Mail spoke to three of Alek Minassian’s former classmates who described him as being socially awkward, believing he may have suffered from a social or mental disability.
Minassian kept mostly to himself at school, and seemed to constantly rub his head or hands – a sign of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), they added.
Other classmates suggested he had never exhibited any indication of possessing extremist views or violent tendencies and was described by one couple as being “friendly”.
One student said Minassian did not interact particularly well with other students, but would not describe him as a loner.
At a news conference Tuesday, Detective Sgt. Graham Gibson said that “the accused is alleged to have posted a cryptic message on Facebook” minutes before he began his attack. The Facebook post referred to a misogynistic online subculture for “involuntarily celibate” men.
If you want to say he’s crazy, fine. But the last paragraph indicates a hatred of women. If he acted out of hatred for women, he’s a terrorist.
The terrorist label in the American media seems to be reserved for brown people. The mentally disturbed label is usually applied to whites. Either call everyone involved in mass murder a terrorist or call them mentally disturbed. Don’t stereotype groups because it serves a political purpose.
