Former professional football player Jim Brown believes Colin Kaepernick is desecrating the flag by kneeling instead of worshiping it. And apparently , that’s just as bad as stepping on it , spitting on it , wiping his nose on it , or even wiping his ass on it.

According to Brown , kneeling is the wrong form of protest.

“I’m an American ,” Brown said in a recent interview with the New York Post. “I don’t desecrate my flag and my National anthem. This is my country and I’ll work out the problems , but I’ll do it in an intelligent manner.”

Well , getting out and marching peacefully in the streets , is protesting in an intelligent manner. But apparently not to people like Jim Brown. No form of protest is the right form of protest  to those  who hate people like Colin Kaepernick. When they take a knee , they are called thugs , and when they do get out in the streets and march peacefully ,  they are called thugs , terrorists , and un American. They get shot and killed by trigger happy cops ,  have their lives smeared by the media , and the police who commit the crimes are portrayed as the true victims. 

According to the article , Kaeprenick began to kneel in order to protest what he alleged was an increasing spate of police brutality against minorities. No allege. Fact. If it wasn’t verifiably a fact that minorities have been shot and or killed using lethal force , and in most cases the police who do the killing , receiving no punishment , Kapernick would have no need to kneel. 

Brown : “If you have a cause , I think you should organize it , present it in a manner where it’s not only you standing or sitting on one knee , but a lot of people who are gonna get behind each other and do something about it. Who is Colin Kaepernick calling on to follow what he’s talking about?”

Apparently a lot of people believe in what Kaepernick is doing. Not everyone believes he’s trashing the flag or disrespecting American soldiers. 

Brown : “Colin has to make up his mind whether he’s truly an activist or a football player.” 

No , he doesn’t. There are no rules that say you can’t be both a professional football player and an activist. 

Brown : “You have to understand there’s intelligence that’s involved , OK? I can’t be two things at once that contradict each other.” Yes , you can. Conservatives do and say things all the time that are contradictory. Like believing in the first amendment , but wanting to ban the free speech of anyone who says something they don’t like. It’s called hypocrisy.

Joel Osteen Tells Flood Survivers : You’re Not The Victims Here , I Am.

http://www.newsweek.com/joel-osteen-televangelist-whose-church-closed-during-hurricane-harvey-tells-659302

Joel Osteen , the tele-preacher who failed to open his church doors in Texas to hurricane Harvey survivors , wants everyone to know he’s the real victim. All those people who lost their homes , and all the people who lost their lives , pales in comparison to what Joel has been going through for being mocked on social media. It’s just more proof that Christians are persecuted.

Conservative snowflake and Trump ass kisser , Tomi Lahren , makes her debut on the fair and balanced Fox News network.

Once upon a time , earlier this year to be exact , conservative snowflake – AKA Trump ass kissing lapdog , Tomi Lahren had a job at Glenn Beck’s The Blaze. Then , while appearing on The View she called many of her fellow conservatives hypocrites and admitted that she’s pro-choice. Glenn Beck immediately had a hissy fit and told her to pack her bags. Her bombastic commentary was no longer needed at The Blaze , because she hurt his feelings. She bounced around social media like a marble in a pinball machine , whining about Black Lives Matter , and liberals picking on her snowflake president , finally getting a gig with a pro-Trump advocacy group called Great America Alliance , who’s biggest claim to fame were a couple of childish ads , one ironically titled “Witch Hunt , where she ranted about the “liberal establishment media’s” unfair treatment of great King Trump , harping on his so-called connection to Russia , and another designed to make fun of liberals as snowflakes , but proving that conservatives like herself are the real snowflakes.

Marking her debut on Fox News , alongside Hannity and Geraldo Rivera , she immediately began whining about Hilary Clinton’s emails , outraged that only snowflakes like herself were still interested in the subject.  

Lahren was apparently upset that the FBI had decided not to pursue a Freedom Of Information Act request against Hillary Clinton’s emails.

“It’s in everybody’s interest to know the truth , right?” Hannity said.

“Of course it is ,” she screeched. “And the funny part of this whole thing is that her privacy somehow trumps our right to know. I’m sorry , but when you use a private email on a private server , your privacy rights are out the window  when you’re secretary of the United States. You don’t have privacy anymore.”

Tomi  and her fans still haven’t gotten over the fact that no one but themselves are interested in the so-called Benghazi scandal and Clinton’s so-called email scandal , and have ignored the fact that they have been investigated literally a million times , and have found nothing. They just want to whine like the snowflakes they are. 

Rivera was the only voice of sanity on Hannity , telling the two snowflakes that the Clinton email scandal was a dead horse they should stop fellating. Well , he didn’t use those words exactly. “Enough with Hillary’s emails ,” he concluded. “It’s a big yawner.”  

So , saying that the public doesn’t have a right to know or that we’re not interested , that’s a load of crap , number one!” Tomi screeched again. “Number two , how about we make a deal? How about when the mainstream media stops covering Russia day in and day out , maybe we can wrap up the Hillary email scandal.”

But that will never happen. Hillary Clinton’s emails will be a dead horse that Lahren will beat with a stick again and again attempting to bring new life to , and the media will do the same with the equally questionable Trump/Russia scandal.

America Love It Or Leave It?

While on the way home from the market one Saturday morning , I noticed the words America , Love It Or Leave It , on the back window of a vehicle. I’ve seen these types of so-called patriotic messages on other automobiles over the years. I couldn’t help but wonder , was this guy a Trump supporter or a Republican? Many of those who display these types of statements on their vehicles , no doubt see themselves as true patriots , and are always conservatives , who believe America can only be great again when there are no liberals , no Muslims , no gays , and no illegal immigrants. They claim to love America , but adamantly oppose gay rights ,  and freedom of speech for anyone but themselves. They believe the civil rights group like Black Lives Matter to be a racist hate organization that assassinates white people , and police officers. They believe athletes who protest racial injustice , who take a knee during the National Anthem ,  are un-American , and they deny that racism still exists.

Many of them also believe that America is already great , with very little room for improvement. To the America right or wrong types , if you criticize America with a Republican in the White House , you’re unpatriotic. But if its a Democrat , it’s patriotism. Which is a bullshit argument. Criticizing America is an act of patriotism. Dissent is the highest form of patriotism. When our country does something wrong , we have an obligation to criticize our government , and redress grievances. They are supposed to represent the people , not special interests , not lobbies , not corporations. We can and should  vote them out for not representing us.

America is already a great nation , despite its many imperfections : its failing educational system , infrastructure , healthcare , getting homeless Americans off the streets , providing jobs that pay a living wage that people are capable of living on without having to resort to food stamps just to feed themselves and their families , getting corporate money out of politics , and investing in cleaner energy sources while decreasing dependence on fossil fuels. When these issues are addressed and taken seriously by enough Americans who are sick and tired of the same old nonsense , and are willing to do something about it , then America will be an even greater nation. But it may take a revolution.
