If Americans Kneel, Will Mike Pence Walk Out Of Vice-Presidency?

Mike Pence, our Most Petty Vice-President, claimed that he walked out of an NFL game Sunday between the Colts and 49ers because some dozen players took a knee during the national anthem.

http://www.mynbc5.com/article/vice-president-mike-pence-leaves-colts-game-because-of-players-who-protested/12804778

Which leads us to ask: If the man second-in-line to lead the United States of America is so easily swayed by such petty matters, then if a few hundred Americans took a knee during the national anthem could the Man-Standing-On-Principals-Of Sand Mike Pence be so outraged that he would resign from the vice-presidency?

It’s well worth a try.

***************************

The Reality:

Pence had this planned all along. His rapidly dispensed press release explaining his “outrage” and departure was written well before Sunday’s game.

He and Trump hatched this rotten egg tomfoolery to keep this “kneeling” issue on the front pages to whip up their gap-toothed, backwoods-dwelling ignorant racist base and guarantee they’d keep foaming at the mouth.

(As if they weren’t already foaming at the mouth from the rabies that inherently drove them to vote for Donald Trump.)

Oklahoma’s Mixon Knocks Out Girl, Breaks Her Face In 4 Places; American Men Agree: “It Was A Good Punch”

The 2-year old video of University of Oklahoma star running back Joe Mixon knocking out a female student has just been released. For the first time the world can see the event and judge for itself.

http://deadspin.com/joe-mixon-told-police-it-felt-like-a-dude-hit-me-1790324120

And for all those commenting on sports sites across the web the troubling conclusion is this: The girl deserved it.

Why? Because prior to getting violently punched out by a massive, muscular athlete, the blond girl pushed him, then slapped him on the neck.

**********************

By the thousands men (and some women) are throwing their weight behind the very flimsy logic that this big man was merely defending himself against this girl.

Tellingly, by the thousands these nitwits are buttressing their logic with the fact that women declare they want equality from men. Therefore, a push and a slap from a much smaller female should certainly be seen as a mortal threat and should be countermanded by a punch with the force to kill.

“They want equality? We’ll GIVE them equality! With our fists!” they all say.

Hmmm….think these people have issues?

Think these people can’t properly process intellectual concepts?

Think these people hate all that “women’s lib” stuff? Think these are all the people who hated Hillary Clinton because she was one of “those” women and really wanted to punch her out?

Think this nation is becoming more violent, more intolerant, more reactionary, less able to grasp fundamental values like, for example, Don’t beat your children or women?

**************************

It’s popular to talk about the crumbling infrastructure of America – meaning roads, bridges, etc.

There’s another infrastructure crumbling in America and the sound is deafening – It’s the sound of the crumbling infrastructure of American Society.

We’re wondering who’s going to stand up and become the leader to rebuild that.

New York Times Supports Minnesota Players Pro-Sexual Assault Agenda

New York Times writers Mark Tracy and Pat Borzi went on the record in their Saturday report that framed the University of  Minnesota football players plight as not one of an aggressive gang rape sexual assault but rather a “due process” and “fairness” issue for the perpetrators of the crime.

Well, how’s THAT for a creepy spin?

We suppose when the NFL’s Carolina Panthers Greg Hardy beat his girlfriend to a pulp but consequently got his conviction overturned on a technicality, NYTs writers Tracy and Borzi were thrilled about Hardy’s good fortune on HIS due process and the law’s fairness.

Tracy and Borzi thought it was relevant to tout how beautiful it was that student-athletes are able to rally ’round and organize over good causes.

Wait. These players were boycotting in support of their fellow football players who gang raped a coed. And Tracy/Borzi are applauding this?

These NYTs writers pulled out the example of University of Missouri football players who recently boycotted because of racism on campus…But, wait – That SAME Missouri team was found to be cheating academically by having tutors taking tests and just a few years before was involved in their own campus rape scandal where the victim – a female member of the Missouri swim team – later committed suicide.

You’d think NYTs writers would know this kind of stuff.

Then again, when these same writers think this Minnesota boycott was a good idea because these poor football players were denied due process, you can be assured they don’t know squat.

Minnesota Players’ Boycott Effort Collapses After Hard Spanking By University President – Damage To Univ. Image Already Done

The ludicrous boycott effort by University of Minnesota football players has collapsed. A Friday night meeting with University President Kaler went down with the clueless lunkhead players not getting anything they demanded so forcefully in their original bullying press conference.

http://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/18297065/minnesota-golden-gophers-football-team-ends-boycott-prepare-holiday-bowl

Never in the history of collegiate athletics has an entire team stood “proudly” together to support their fellow players right to gang rape other students. 

Yes. All these players knew the facts about the gang rape. Because many of them were there. Many of them shared text messages and video clips of the sexual assault. Many of them collaborated in fabricating lies to police in the following investigation.

STILL they gathered together 120 strong and rallied their troops to call attention for all of America and claim they were victims.

STILL they put out a Twitter campaign using the words and image of Martin Luther King, Jr. that proclaimed THEY – those who organized and attempted to cover-up the sexual assault – were victims.

How clueless are these lunkheads? Here are some of their statements from their boycott-ending press release.

That they expect America to “show support for our team and the great character shown by the great majority of our players.”

 Ha! All of America will be rooting against them in that Holiday Bowl, that is, if anyone even watches.

“As football players we know that we…are held to higher standards.”

Do they know that? Did they know that when they were fighting to get into line to sexually assault that incapacitated coed? Why the hell should we believe anything they have to say?

“We want to thank our coaching staff and so many others for their support during this difficult time.”

Again, the PLAYERS were going through a difficult time?! What the hell do you think the poor coed was going through when she was at the hospital after the attack? When she had to go through grilling by cold police officers making her repeat over and over the details of that horrendous experience? Then having her name exposed and having to continue living and working at the same university as all those monsters who did that to her? Is there ANY concept of empathy in the heads of these coddled athletes or is it ALWAYS about them? They are truly living in a bubble where nothing outside their protected world exists.

************************

This did not take place in a vacuum. Many of the player’s fathers, including Ray Buford, who is a Detroit police officer, were very vocal and public advocates for the players’ actions. You would think parents and police officers would know better. You would think a police officer wouldn’t start advocating for players involved in a sexual assault.

Yes, we would think that. Apparently, that policeman doesn’t.

*************************

Yes, it’s true that just last year the Athletic Director at the University of Minnesota was dismissed for sexual harassment. And that’s not the only incident there. There were plenty of them that can be googled.

So these football players are just the latest – and most egregious – in a long line.

**************************

Let’s hope President Kaler has finally found his big ball bat and is keeping it hung close to his desk for future use on all recalcitrant know-nothings.

ESPN Reports Facts On Univ. Minnesota Football Gang Rape Attack On Student

ESPN has put together a damning collection of factual reports surrounding the gang rape of a debilitated coed by at least 10 members of the University of Minnesota football team.

http://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/18294618/minnesota-eric-kaler-says-player-suspensions-alleged-gang-rape-based-university-values

********************

In the face of these damning facts it is beyond preposterous that these coddled, spoiled boy-athletes believe that they have the moral right to stand before this nation and present themselves as poor, beleaguered victims seeking justice.

What did they do?

There was a young woman, incapacitated by alcohol, thrown on a bed. The “men” of the University of Minnesota football team then kept her imprisoned in a room, organized themselves enough to stand in line to sexually assault her, sometimes 2 at a time, videotaping it at times, including an underage football recruit in this criminal act, texting other football players to get them to participate in this criminal activity, all the time  ignoring the woman’s calls to stop.

And the team’s quarterbacks, their leaders, were in on it, too.

If this is a team, then it’s time to get rid of it.

What makes this more outrageous is Minnesota football coach Tracy Claeys says he is “100%” behind his “boys” actions in standing up for their gang raping friends. 

Time for University Pres. Kaler to get rid of Claeys.

***************************

Look at Baylor’s football program. For years its players preyed on the female students at that Christian university in Texas where football is king. And the administration covered it up to the point where they threatened the female victims with expulsions for reporting rape by football players because – get this – sexual activity is grounds for dismissal from Baylor. How’s THAT for a novel way to keep victims silent!

Eventually Baylor’s president, AD and coach were let go, though none admitted any wrongdoing. And the rest of the coaching staff that an investigation determined promoted a dangerous environment for women on campus, was allowed to continue on the payroll and is still there today.

****************************

Need more?

How about Oklahoma’s star running back Joe Mixon, a sure 1st round pick in the NFL draft. Just today a video was released showing him knocking out cold a female student in a restaurant. Mixon was barely punished. Why? Because the girl “pushed” him? We suppose that gives a huge, muscular, coiled, angry football player the right to slam his fist into the face of a little blond girl.

*****************************

Need more?

Alabama will be playing for the national championship again this year with illustrious Offensive Coordinator Lane Kiffin on the sidelines.

Well Kiffin just took the head coaching job next year at Florida Atlantic Univ. and his first big athlete signing was…the former Florida State quarterback who was dismissed for knocking out a girl in a bar.

See a pattern here?

Does anyone in America laugh anymore while the NFL constantly runs smiley, happy commercials during their games about how “family-friendly” football is? Commercials showing kids and moms and dads playing joyfully together in a blissful world full of NFL-themed products?

Then back to the games where every five minutes the action must be stopped because a player has been knocked cold by another player’s dirty hit. The concussed player carried off the field, unable to continue, while the player who delivered the dirty hit is assured a highlight on that evening’s sports broadcast and just gets to keep on playing.

Need an example?

Look at the hit on the very talented Darren Sproles last week by Deshazor Everett.

http://www.nj.com/eagles/index.ssf/2016/12/watch_vicious_hit_on_darren_sproles_causes_fight_b.html

Sproles was out, and is out for this weeks game, too. Everett just keeps playing.

Is there something wrong with football? It didn’t use to be this way.

Is there something wrong with America? It didn’t use to be this way.

There is definitely something wrong with the twisted, feeble, infantile minds and behavior of the University of Minnesota football team when they believe they are the righteous victims when in truth they are promoting a sick mindset that flies in the face of logic and should outrage all Americans.

Univ. Of Minn. Football Players Stand Tall For Right Of Student Athletes To Gang Rape Fellow Students

It was just 2 years ago that a group of student athletes at Northwestern decided to pursue their right to form a labor union and took it to the courts.

My, how times have changed.

Now the self-righteous student athletes of the University of Minnesota football team have threatened to boycott because 10 of their brethren have been suspended by the university president for taking part in a gang rape of a female student/university employee.

The local police refused to prosecute the football players because, well…you know, all the police officers investigating were fans of the football team and were afraid of losing their free season tickets. Oh, and because the woman was drunk, then, well, you know…

Yeah. We know how police think. These days, it’s the same police who go around shooting first and asking questions later.

“To Serve And Protect?” If this is serving and protecting then their boss must be Caligula.

[For anyone interested in football-related rape cases we suggest a serious study of Florida State’s Jameis Winston. From the top down the investigating officers were also employed by or connected to Florida State University. The state’s prosecutor had undue influence and later the judge for the university investigation refused to call testimony from investigating officers. Can you say “whitewash?”

And Winston is now the millionaire star of the NFL’s Tampa Bay Bucs – can you say Happy Ending!]

**********************

Thank goodness University President Eric Kaler is, for now, standing firm on the suspensions because they are based “on facts and (are) reflective of the University’s values.”

**********************

As for the student athlete “leaders” and their coach who supposedly supports their infantile, nay, criminal stance, they have no concept of any values: Whether those of the University of Minnesota which they supposedly represent or the values shared by all decent human beings on this planet.

**********************

The University of Minnesota it must be said has now for years been a pit of desperation for student athletes’ behavior as well as their own AD being dismissed. You need only google for details.

Basketball coach Richard Pitino has a rich history of recruiting reprehensible players who end up being dismissed and arrested for any number of offenses. One of his first recruits brutally beat a girl and was arrested. Just this past season 3 players were suspended for posting sex videos on their Twitter feeds. How’s that for quality athletes?

http://deadspin.com/minnesota-suspends-three-players-after-one-tweets-sex-t-1761925904

(It should be said that Richard is the son of Rick Pitino of Louisville whose program was just punished by the NCAA for having an assistant coach pay for prostitutes for players and recruits.Rotten fruit doesn’t fall far from the tree.)

**********************

So the University President finally puts his foot down, like a parent who has finally had enough.

Should we be surprised that these spoiled, dense, now criminally corrupt kids think they have the power to bite the hand that feeds them?

Time to take them to the woodshed.

 

 

Minnesota Football Players Involved In Drunken Gang-Rape: Now Team Plays Above-The-Law In Boycott Threat

The height of today’s college athletes’ sense of privileged status is embodied in the entire University of Minnesota football team.

They have decided en masse to boycott all activities, including a profitable (for the university) bowl game, because 10 members of the team have been suspended due to their participation in a drunken gang-rape of a female student employee of the University of Minnesota

.http://www.startribune.com/gophers-football-players-plan-to-threaten-boycott-of-bowl-game/406928136/

And their coach is 100% behind them. That’s leadership for you!

An entire team of 19 and 20 year old men who play for one of the most respected universities in the nation standing together to support their “brothers” who gang-raped a drunken co-ed.

And to top it off, they’re trying to start a twitter hashtag movement under the handle #We’veHadEnough and using – get this – an image and quote of Martin Luther King, Jr!

Is someone spinning in his hallowed grave right now?

We just bet all those players standing naked in line waiting for their chance to sexually assault a drunken coed were shouting quotes of MLK back and forth at each other. You bet they were.

Well, isn’t that nice for football players to stand up for gang-rape? To support their fellow players who stood in line to sexually assault a drunken female University of Minnesota employee?

The entire team was outraged that the university president would suspend the 10 football players for such behavior. So, they put all their concussed noggins together and came up with their childish boycott stand.

Yes, these outstanding young men are the leaders of tomorrow.

***********************

This is the year 2016. The president-elect is a man who is on record for promoting sexual assault.

Why should we be surprised that our college athletes  – paid to play by tax dollars – should be following in the steps of our new Commander-In-Chief.
