Pay attention NFL: How Tim Tebow became the greatest value in minor league baseball

tim tebow2

He didn’t do it by boycotting the National Anthem.

If you don’t know about the “controversy” surrounding Tebow kneeling in prayer (and doing and a pro-life commercial), read about it here. Turns out he’s a big draw for minor league baseball. Guess sports fans aren’t so big on social justice warriors and their antics.

As reported by Darrenn Rovell of ESPN, Tebow is now a great contributing factor to minor league baseball attendance. From his report:

Tim Tebow contributed to the greatest rise in minor league baseball attendance in 23 years.

That number is quite appropriate because only one man, Michael Jordan, has done more for minor league baseball crowds than Tebow did this year. And Jordan — who wore No. 23 for the NBA’s Chicago Bulls — had the benefit of playing Double-A with bigger ballparks to fill.

Thanks to Jordan, the Birmingham Barons’ 1994 season attendance of 467,868 fans, with an average of 6,884 fans per game, still stands as a franchise and league record. Although Tebow’s popularity didn’t fill that many seats, the impact of the former NFL quarterback is undeniable.

Tebow’s biggest impact was drawing fans to games. Statwise, it’s fair to say he has significant room for improvement, but did provide notable moments.

The Columbia Fireflies, the Class A team Tebow played for through June 28, saw their attendance increase by nearly 54,000 fans, a 21 percent rise from 2016. The second team Tebow played for, the St. Lucie Mets of advanced Class A, saw attendance rise by 35,803 fans, up 37 percent from last year.

And that’s just the beginning.

On the road, Tebow’s Fireflies drew a crowd, too: to be exact, 2,591 more fans than the home teams averaged against other opponents. Baseball America calculated that Tebow was worth nearly $1.6 million in additional tickets, parking, concessions and other revenue for the rest of the South Atlantic League.

For the owners of the Fireflies, Tebow was the greatest value in all of sports. The New York Mets paid his salary — $10,000 for the season — and the Fireflies reaped the benefits, including merchandise revenue for what figures to be one of the 20 highest-selling clubs in the minors.

At most venues, Tebow went down the line and signed every autograph opportunity until he was finished.

Although Tebow hit just .226 with eight home runs and 52 RBIs, there were highlights on the field, including a home run in his first at-bat after he moved from Columbia to St. Lucie and an unforgettable moment when Tebow reached through the netting while in the on-deck circle to shake hands with an autistic boy during a July 29 game in Charlotte, North Carolina. Tebow then walked to the plate and hit a three-run home run in front of one of the many crowds packed in to see the former Heisman-winning quarterback take his shot at baseball.

After pushing for Muslim immigration into Europe, Jews now say Jews should leave Europe

Jews are a main force pushing for immigration, “migration” and “refugee resettlement” of Third World peoples (mainly Muslims from North Africa and the Middle East) into Europe and North America.

See also “French rabbi Rav Touitou applauds Muslim invasion of Europe”.

Curiously, Jews’ advocacy of open immigration doesn’t extend to Israel.

But the flood of Muslim “migrants” into Europe have produced a myriad of social ills. See for example:

Now that Europe is ruined by their governments’ wrong-headed open-door policy to Muslim “migrants” — a policy pushed by Jews — Jews are bemoaning a situation they themselves have promoted, and asking if it is time for Jews to leave Europe.

How perverse is that.

In April 2015, The Atlantic magazine published an article by its national correspondent Jeffrey Goldberg asking “Is It Time for the Jews to Leave Europe?”, as well as hosted a discussion on the same subject among three of its staffers who are all Jews:

Below is a video from the discussion, which was uploaded to YouTube by The Atlantic on April 29, 2015. It is at once stunningly revealing and mind-boggling, and well worth your time. I’ve transcribed parts of the discussion below.

The problem is stated by Bennet as the blameless Jews as the eternal victim and scapegoat of other people’s problems (19:46 mark):

“The Jews are collateral . . . . When civilizations clash, Jews die…. We’re seeing a clash between two different ways of being. We’re seeing an indigestible Muslim minority confronting a Europe that is paralyzed and doesn’t even know itself anymore. And the Jews happen to be sitting there, and sometimes as an afterthought, they are attacked; sometimes as a convenient scapegoat they’re attacked. But they’re not in a way part of the larger drama. They just sit there and get it in the neck…. Jews are not in control of what happens to Jews in Europe, and that is the best reason to sort of think about an exit.”

Goldberg on how unlivable life is for Jews in Europe (8:03):

“At my synagogue in Washington, DC, we often will have services outside. The thought of doing that in Europe is an impossibility! You can’t do anything out in the open anymore, and it seems like a very straightened, narrow, archaic way to live.”

All three men agree that “liberalism” has failed in Europe, by which they mean the liberal culture of “tolerance” and “multiculturalism”:

Goldberg (15:26): “In a sense, liberalism has failed. If this doesn’t work, it has failed in Europe.”

Who’s to blame? While putting some of the blame on Muslims, the panelists mainly blame the Europeans, i.e., non-Jewish “white” Europeans for not being nice to the Muslim “migrants”:

Goldberg (9:46): “This Muslim Judeaphobia that you see, this is not created in complete isolation. This is not wholly a Middle Eastern import. This is fed by classical European anti-Semitic tropes” which led to the Holocaust.

Wieseltier (11:25): “European liberalism as we know from its history constantly provoked recoils and allergic reaction. Fascism and communism both were in some way allergic responses to the European liberalism. The [European] liberal state can actually collide with an illiberal society and illiberal culture, and I think to some extent that’s what’s happening.” The situation in Europe now is a “top down liberalism whereby the state is liberal and motivated by all the right values. And then there is this bottom, which lives peacefully most of the time, but [not] really sufficiently to some extent.”

Bennet (16:08): “You have to admit that it’s odd that it’s . . . this has happened in part . . . by the importation of poor Muslims to labor on behalf of industrial Europe by these Muslims being put in these ghettos and in disenfranchised positions.

Wieseltier (16:35): “It is true that these new Muslim communities are the proximate [immediate] causes of this crisis, but the non proximate cause is the more distant causes — the treatment or mistreatment of these [Muslim] communities, the societies to which they arrived, the prejudice that they found, the indifference that they found . . . and their apparent lack of interest in actually integrating.”

When Bennet asks if in some way Muslims are not “meltable,” i.e., they refuse to assimilate into the host society, Wieseltier actually admits Jews also are not “meltable”:

(17:52): “The same point about the Jews. During the great debates about Jewish emancipation in the 18th-early 19th century in Western Europe, the arguments always were the Jews cannot be absorbed because they were ‘a state within a state’ because their laws and their way of life make them unassimilable.

All agree that Jews need to leave Europe, even though ironically, as Bennet observed (12:51), “This is what Hitler wanted”:

Bennet (12:10): “The tragic outcome of this is that the Jews in fact do need to all leave Europe.

Bennet (15:51): “I would prefer them to leave in a kind of way because I think it’s not very safe to be there.

And where would Europe’s Jews go? While the panelists note that Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has welcomed Jews to Israel, the panelists don’t seem enthusiastic about that idea but don’t explain why. Instead, they have their eyes on North America:

Wieseltier (15:32): “I think that there is democracy in the United States, there’s democracy is Canada. Both these countries would welcome these Jews.

Last but not least, when Bennet asks (12:19) “What would be the most Jewish thing for the last Jew [to leave Europe] to do, the most appropriate fitting thing?,” Wieseltier answers (12:23):

The last thing that you [the last Jew] should do when he or she leaves Europe is spit.”

I recommend that you read viewers’ comments on the video’s YouTube page. Here’s a sample:

“The last Jew to leave Europe should spit? The utter contempt for native European people these people have.”

“LOL at blaming the islamic discrimination for jews onto the europeans, whilst importing millions of muslim migrants.”

“Even within a video titled ‘Should the Jews Leave Europe?’, the Muslims end up getting painted as the victims.”

“Jews have no intention of ever leaving Europe of their own free will. The idea that the interests of gentiles in maintaining their own cultures and institutions for themselves Is not an idea that washes well with most of these narcissistic arrogant parasites.”

“Too bad every single Jew in the world can’t just move to Israel and leave their host countries alone.”

“Jews are always the big promoters of multiculturalism (except for Israel of course, hypocrites), either through non-profit organizations (Soros) or through political bribery. Jews are and have always been anti-white that’s why they have been deported out of more than a 100 countries in history. History repeats and the wheel of karma keeps turning.”

Keeping the divide going: AMC developing series based on BLM book, “They Can’t Kill Us All”

they can't kill us all

More fiction coming to your TV…

Ferguson was a liberal-funded protest. Baltimore race rioters were given permission by then mayor, Stephanie  Rawlings-Blake, to burn, riot, and loot their own city. Instead of waiting for the facts of police shootings to emerge, race agitators destroyed their communities.

Now a book about the riots from the BLM movement’s perspective is coming to TV. More fiction, no doubt.

Another show I won’t be watching.

From Deadline: AMC has put in development a drama based on Wesley Lowery’s bestselling nonfiction book They Can’t Kill Us All: Ferguson, Baltimore, and a New Era in America’s Racial Justice. It comes from Brad Weston’s Makeready and writer LaToya Morgan (Into the Badlands, Turn: Washington’s Spies).

Published in 2016 by Little, Brown & Company, the book was acquired by Makeready last fall. It examines how decades of racially biased policing in segregated neighborhoods with failing schools, crumbling infrastructure and too few jobs has led to the high-profile cases of police brutality in Ferguson, Cleveland, Baltimore and elsewhere and the birth of Black Lives Matter movement seeking justice for the deaths of Michael Brown (police officer Darren Wilson was cleared by Obama’s DOJ), Tamir Rice (a grand jury declined to indict due to the fact that Rice drew what appeared to be a real firearm) and Freddie Gray (the trial against Officer William Porter ended in mistrial. Officers Nero, Goodson, and Rice were found not guilty at trial. The remaining charges against the officers were dropped on July 27, 2016).

Written by Morgan, who is under an overall deal at AMC, the potential series also will reflect current events and race relations through the stories and voices of fictional characters. Morgan will executive produce with Makeready founder and CEO Weston and creative heads Pam Abdy and Scott Nemes.

Lowery, a reporter at The Washington Post, was a lead on the paper’s “Fatal Force” project, a database that tracked 990 police shootings in 2015. The project won the Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting in 2016.

They Can’t Kill Us All joins the growing development slate of Makeready’s television division, headed by Nemes, which funds development and can deficit finance series, with Entertainment One handling international distribution. The slate also includes a series adaptation of Rocket Men, Robert Kurson’s upcoming book about the Apollo 8 odyssey; the Untitled David James Kelly project, with Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson’s Appian Way; Old City Blues, by screenwriter Arash Amel, based on the Boom graphic novel; Catching Out, from writer/executive producer Amy Harris and executive producer Chloe Grace Moretz; and the Jonás Cuarón-written drama Undocumented America, based on manuscript by journalist and DACA recipient Karla Cornejo Villavicencio about undocumented immigrants illegal aliens across America.

Morgan is repped by Echo Lake Entertainment, CAA, and Rob Szymanski.

Suicide: Seahawks’ Michael Bennett, others ask NFL to support social activism

michael bennett

Bennett (l) and his buddy Kaepernick. Turning the NFL into full-time social justice activism.

If the NFL goes full SJW for BLM, kiss the league goodbye.

From MyNorthwest.com: Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett is one of four NFL players that have sent a letter to the NFL requesting support from the league, general managers and owners for community outreach and social justice efforts on the part of its players. The players have also requested that the NFL recognize November as activism awareness month.

“We always have different months (when) we recognize different people or different issues in America, and we felt like that was a big issue,” Bennett told reporters Wednesday when explaining the idea. “We wanted to find a way to recognize it and be able to have that conversation (where) people can find information about things they want to get involved with.”

The 10-page memo, obtained by Yahoo! Sports’ Charles Robinson was reportedly sent to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in August by Bennett, Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins and wide receiver Torrey Smith, and former NFL wide receiver Anquan Bolden. The players requested the following of the league:

“To be clear, we are asking for your support. We appreciate your acknowledgment on the call regarding the clear distinction between support and permission. For us, support means: bear all or part of the weight of; hold up; give assistance to, especially financially; enable to function or act. We need support, collaboration and partnerships to achieve our goal of strengthening the community. There are a variety of ways for you to get involved. Similar to the model we have in place for players to get involved, there are three tiers of engagement based on your comfort level.”

Bennett has been an advocate for social justice issues and routinely speaks out about police brutality, racism, and inequality. This season, Bennett has chosen to sit for the national anthem, telling reporters the gesture is an effort to use his platform to oppose segregation and oppression. Several teammates, including center Justin Britt, defensive ends Cliff Avril and Frank Clark, running back Thomas Rawls, and cornerback Jeremy Lane, have shown public support for Bennett during his silent protest.

“I don’t know what the chances are (that the league accepts our proposal),” Bennett said. “Hopefully, the chances are 100 percent, but we’ll see. It takes a lot for a business or organization to get behind certain issues, and we’re hoping to keep pushing it to see if we can ever get to that place where we can be comfortable with talking about the issues that are going on around the country.”

Elisabeth Moss to star in “women’s rights” drama “Call Jane”

elisabeth moss

How Elisabeth greets her fans on her Instagram

Don’t let the biased headline fool you. She’s going to star in a pro-abort movie.

From Hollywood Reporter: On the heels of her groundbreaking best actress Emmy win for Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale, Elisabeth Moss (a TDS-infected libtard) has signed on to star in Call Jane, an abortion drama to be directed by My Week With Marilyn filmmaker Simon Curtis.

Robbie Brenner, one of the producers behind the Oscar-winning Matthew McConaughey AIDS drama Dallas Buyers Club, is producing the indie pic along with Jeff Kwatinetz and Kevin McKeon of The Firm.

Set in 1960s Chicago, Call Jane focuses on the true story of an underground network of suburban women who secretly provide safe abortions for women in need pre-Roe v. Wade. Moss will play Jane, a married woman who is unexpectedly pregnant and discovers the underground group of women.

The screenplay, based on the true story of a 1960s movement called the Jane Collective, was written by Hayley Schore and Roshan Sethi, co-creators of The Resident, the upcoming Fox drama set to premiere in January.

“This script [for Call Jane] is commercial and entertaining, but it’s also really relevant to what is going on with the world today,” Brenner told The Hollywood Reporter. “Women’s rights are important and no one should have the right to control a woman’s body. And that such an idea can be challenged today and that we can go back in time on these issues is scary.”

The project is out to financiers, and the goal is to start production in the first quarter of 2018.

Liberalism is a mental disorder: France and other EU countries criminalize wolf-whistling & asking women for their phone number

Patrick Knox reports for the UK’s The Sun, Sept. 20, 2017, that fulfilling a pledge Emmanuel Macron had made during his presidential election campaign last year, the government of France is declaring war on men “harassing” women in public.

Under new plans, wolf-whistling will be a criminal offense in France, as will asking women for their telephone numbers and following them. The crackdown comes after surveys show virtually all French women said they have been “harassed” on public transport, in the street or elsewhere at some time in their lives.

Marlène Schiappa, 34, France’s under-secretary for gender equality, defended the plan and gave an example of behavior that would be illegal. She said:

“You are a woman in an underground train. I am a man. I follow you. You get off the train. I get off. You get on another train. I get on too. I ask you for your telephone number. I ask again. I ask a third time. You feel oppressed. That is street harassment.”

Attorney Gilles-William Goldnadel accuses Schiappa of seeking to outlaw “heavy Latin chat-up lines”. He said the only consequences of the law would be to enrich feminist lawyers and to clog up the court system.

Some choice comments from readers of The Sun:

chris perrien: “Only will apply to native white Frenchmen, as to apply such to anyone else would be racist and the French government will have none of that.”

Mike Irish: “Ah France, I wonder if most of your women are also happy with flooding your country with men who do not think of women as humans?”

KJ: “And women wonder why sexbots will replace them”

JD: “Yeah, because women being asked for their phone numbers is the BIGGEST social problem in France right now. Talk about ‘arranging deck chairs on the Titanic.'”

Steven Jacks: “It’s becoming illegal to reject the advances of a Transsexual and now illegal to ask for the phone number of a real woman, it’s almost as if they don’t want us Europeans to breed at all…”

It turns out that other EU countries, including Belgium and Portugal, had already banned wolf-whistling and other “sexist” “harassing” behavior.

In March 2012, the UK Mirror reported that “wolf-whistling is now set to become a criminal offence” under new EU rules drawn up by the Council of Europe’s convention on violence against women.

The convention’s legislation criminalizes or imposes other sanctions for “unwanted verbal, non-verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature with the purpose or effect of violating the dignity of a person, in particular when creating an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment”. The legislation also outlaws “psychological violence,” compensates victims of domestic abuse, and punishes someone for forcing abortions or sterilization.

The EU rules have the support of at least 18 countries, including Germany and the UK.

On March 8, 2012, at a special event to mark International Women’s Day, UK Prime Minister David Cameron declared the UK would sign up to the European convention. He said:

“The agreement is not just a piece of paper. It’s going to lift the standards of protection for women across Europe, give greater support for victims and – crucially – bring many more perpetrators to justice.”

Julia Gray, who founded the London branch of US movement Hollaback! that is dedicated to getting rid of street harassment, told The Guardian:

“The way we see it is if you want to tackle it you tackle all of it – you say no to all forms of unwanted sexual harassment; that includes wolf-whistling, comments, everything.”

Colbert: Setting new records for CBS

From Yahoo: Praise, wee — CBS’ broadcast of the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards delivered all-time lows.

The Stephen Colbert-hosted ceremony drew 9.6 million total viewers (others are reporting the final number was 11.4 million) and a 2.2 rating in the fast nationals, dropping a handful of eyeballs and down 12 percent in the demo from what ABC and Jimmy Kimmel woke up to a year ago. (In Nielsen finals, the 2016 kudoscast went on to post 11.3 million total viewers and a 2.8 demo rating, which at the time marked all-time lows.)

Gee, I wonder why the Trump-bashing show didn’t draw in viewers?

Keep it up, Hollyweird. I look forward to the day when you are completely irrelevant.
