The Kaepernick Effect: Ratings for NFL 2018 season opener lowest since 2009

In 2016, at the third preseason game of the 49ers, quarterback Colin Kaepernick began his public virtue-signalling, protesting against alleged racial injustice in America by refusing to standing at the National Anthem played before the start of NFL games.

Since then, the Kaepernick contagion has spread to other NFL players. Nike, Inc., even elevates Kaepernick to heroic stature, featuring him in the company’s “Just Do It” campaign in an ad with the statement, “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.” (See DCG’s post, “National Association of Police Organizations calls for boycott of Nike over Kaepernick campaign“.)

Football fans have shown their distaste for Kaepernick and other NFL players’ politicization of the sport and disrespect for the National Anthem by boycotting the NFL. Their boycott continues to depress TV ratings of NFL games, although I believe ratings and profits no longer motivate Left-infested corporations.

Dominic Patten reports for Deadline Hollywood that viewership for the first official game (Eagles vs. Atlanta Falcons) of the NFL’s new season on September 6, 2018, fell to a 9-year low:

  • Only 19 million watched the game on NBC — a decline of 13% from  last year’s NFL opener holding the previous record, and the worst any kickoff game has done since 2009.
  • Among adults 18-49, the decline was worse — a drop of 14% from 2017.
  • For that matter, NFL ratings have declined every year since 2014, but especially since 2016 when Kaepernick began his virtue-signalling anthem protest.

Deadline Hollywood‘s Patten observes:

Even in a TV landscape where ratings and viewership are noticeably dipping, unless you are This Is Us or Game Of Thrones, those results have to worry the NFL and the broadcasters, especially the still Rupert Murdoch-owned Fox with its pricey Thursday Night Football debuting this year

Meanwhile, as the NFL enters the 2018 season, there is still no resolution to the anthem protest issue.

Question: If Colin Kaepernick really cares about #BlackLivesMatter, why isn’t he protesting about the millions of black babies being aborted, or the black-on-black carnage of homicides in cities like Chicago?

National Association of Police Organizations calls for boycott of Nike over Kaepernick campaign

Kaepernick wearing his police bashing socks

Race profiteer Colin Kaepernick has an endorsement deal with Nike. It has caused A LOT of debate. The former NFL player is featured in Nike’s “Just Do It” campaign in an ad with the statement, “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.”

According to NBC:

Kaepernick already had a deal with Nike that was set to expire, but it was renegotiated into a multiyear deal to make him one of the faces of Nike’s 30th anniversary “Just Do It” campaign, according to a person familiar with the contract. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because Nike hasn’t officially announced the contract.

The person said Nike will feature Kaepernick on several platforms, including billboards, television commercials and online ads. Nike also will create an apparel line for Kaepernick and contribute to his Know Your Rights charity, the person said. The deal puts Kaepernick in the top bracket of NFL players with Nike.”

Many people are NOT pleased with the campaign especially since Kaepernick is very critical of police and was once caught wearing socks depicting police as pigs.

As a result, the National Association of Police Organizations called for a boycott of Nike. From their statement:

“NAPO is calling on all our member officers, their families and friends to join in boycotting all Nike products in response to the company’s selection of Colin Kaepernick for its “Just Do It” ad campaign. On September 4, NAPO sent a letter to the Chairman, President and CEO of Nike, Inc., condemning this move in the strongest possible terms. Mr. Kaepernick is known, not as a successful athlete, but as a shallow dilettante seeking to gain notoriety by disrespecting the flag for which so many Americans have fought and died. 

The inclusion of Mr. Kaepernick in Nike’s “Just Do It” ad campaign also perpetuates the falsehood that police are racist and aiming to use force against African Americans and persons of color.  In reality, officers across the nation risk their lives not only protecting the athletes featured in Nike’s various campaigns, but also serve aspiring athletes across the country who use the Nike brand, through the thousands of Police Athletic Leagues, Boys and Girls Clubs and Big Brother/Big Sister programs where our officers donate their time and energy. They deserve to have the respect and full support of corporate citizens like Nike. 

Adding to the insult is the image of Mr. Kaepernick from the campaign featuring the quote “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.”  The fact that Mr. Kaepernick is no longer a starting NFL player does not equate to him being someone who has “sacrificed everything”. To truly understand what it means to “believe in something” and “sacrifice everything”, you should look to Arlington National Cemetery, or to the National Law Enforcement Officers’ Memorial in Washington, D.C., or to the trauma unit of a military hospital. The brave men and women of every race and color buried there, memorialized there, healing there, believed in this nation and our flag and exemplify the true meaning of “sacrifice”.  

In featuring Mr. Kaepernick in the “Just Do It” campaign, Nike grossly insults the men and women who really do make sacrifices for the sake of our nation.  

Click here to view NAPO’s letter to Nike, Inc.”

I can’t remember the last time I purchased a Nike product. I certainly won’t be buying any in the future.

Democrat Presidential Hopefuls

Look who’s running in 2020!

That’s right, John Kerry, Joe Biden, and (gasp) Hillary!

John Kerry and Joe Biden were all over “network” news this morning. Both were saying they might consider a presidential run, and both were posing and primping. And there is still the specter of another Hillary run.

But let’s not forget whose agenda they most recently served.

They all have their finger prints on the dirty Iran nukes deal, the sale of vast amounts of uranium to Russia, insider relations with Muslim Brotherhood (the birthing ground for all current jihadists except Iranian jihadists), massive election fraud, the sending of race baiting activists to every American city to stir up race war, not to mention Obamacare and the failed Obama economy.

But not pictured here is Hillary, another member of the Obama team.

An architect of the Arab Spring (no it’s not a deodorant soap)

The “Arab Spring” that overthrew governments across North Africa, Syria and the Levant, with the aid of Obama operatives like Hillary Clinton and John McCain, and the passive support of Facebook and other social media, devastated most of the Christians of those regions.

Did I mention that stalwart of American patriotism, John McCain?

Yup, the McCain who secretly sent supplies. intel and military support to the good terrorists to oppose the bad terrorists.

Did I mention it was these good terrorists who massacred the Americans at Benghazi? Yeah, the poor jihadists mistook a signal to mean that the Americans who were arming them had betrayed them.

But let’s stop bickering over who killed who, and recognize the real objectives being served.

Obama’s team helped rid North Africa, Syria and the Levant of all those pesky Christians, even their dangerous children.

So when you decide on who to support for president, remember,

a vote for Kerry, Biden or Clinton
is a vote for Lucifer.

South Africa prelude to genocide: gun & land confiscation; racial quotas in new mining charter

All signs are pointing to a looming human rights crisis of white genocide in South Africa:

(1) Land Confiscation

In February 2018, South Africa’s new president Cyril Ramaphosa made land expropriation a key pillar of his policy platform after taking over from ousted PM Jacob Zuma.

This was followed by the South African parliament’s passage, by an overwhelming majority of 241 to 83 votes, of a motion to begin the process of amending the country’s Constitution to allow for the confiscation of white-owned land without compensation.

The motion was brought by Julius Malema, leader of the far-left Marxist Economic Freedom Fighters political party, and supported by the ruling African National Congress. (News.com.au)

(2) Call for White Genocide

In June 2018, Julius Malema made a barely-concealed threat of white genocide in an interview with TRT World News.

He said, “We have not called for the killing of white people. At least for now. I can’t guarantee the future.” When the reporter mentioned that some people might view his remarks as a call to genocide, Malema responded, “Crybabies. Crybabies,” then warned white South Africans that the masses are on board” for “an un-led revolution and anarchy.”

H/t TrailDust’s “White Genocide Looming in South Africa“.

(3) Gun Confiscation

On June 7, 2018, South Africa’s Constitutional Court unanimously ruled that sections 24 and 28 of the Firearms Control Act (2000) are constitutional. Sections 24 and 28 require firearm owners to renew their licenses every five years; failure to do so meant an owner is in the illegal possession of a firearm, which is punishable by 15 years in prison. (Daily Maverick)

A year ago, on July 4, 2017, the North Gauteng High Court had declared sections 24 and 28 of the Firearms Control Act unconstitutional. Before the Firearms Control Act of 2000‚ a license to possess a firearm lasted for life. (Times Live)

Section 24 of the Act requires that any person who seeks to renew a license must do so 90 days before its expiry date. Section 28 stipulates that if a firearm license has been cancelled‚ the firearm must be disposed of or forfeited to the state. A 60-day time frame is placed on its disposal, which is to be done through a dealer.

The Constitutional Court’s ruling means that South African gun owners who fail to renew their firearms licenses must hand in their firearms to the nearest police station, where authorities will then presumably destroy them.

José Niño of Gunpowder Magazine rightly observes:

The history of gun confiscation is one of repeated cases of tyranny.

From countries such as Cuba to the Soviet Union, aspiring demagogues have used gun confiscation to disarm the populace. Logically, an unarmed populace will put up little resistance against their tyrannical acts.

(4) New Mining Charter

The economy of South Africa is the second largest (after Nigeria) and one of the most industrialized in Africa, due in large part to mining. Though mining’s contribution to the national GDP has fallen from 21% in 1970 to 6% in post-apartheid 2011, it still represents almost 60% of the country’s exports.

But the South African government is radically revising its Mining Charter, which will be published this November. (Reuters)

The new Mining Charter will require racial quotas in the form of minimum percentages of Black ownership of shares, Black supply of mining goods, and Black employees.

As described by Chris of www.CapitalistExploits.at (via ZeroHedge), Aug. 24, 2018, the changes to the Mining Charter include:

Ownership

  • A new mining right must have a minimum of 30% Black Persons’ shareholding, with the 30% shareholding to be apportioned between employees, communities and entrepreneurs in a specific manner.
  • A minimum 8% shareholding is allocated to mine communities, to be held through a trust.
  • A minimum 14% shareholding must be to black entrepreneurs.

Annual Turnover

  • Holder of a mining rights must pay 1% of its annual turnover to the 30% black persons’ shareholding prior to, and over and above any distributions made by a Holder to its shareholders. This 1% payment is always subject to the solvency and liquidity test as provided for in the Companies Act but is not negotiable under any other terms.

Procurement

  • The Charter requires 70% procurement of mining goods and 80% procurement of services from BEE entities (Black empowered entities); it also requires that analysis of 100% of mineral samples be done by South African based companies. This is mandatory and in place no matter how incompetent or expensive these protected companies services may be.

Employment Equity

  • At board level, a minimum of 50% black representation, 25% of which must be both female and black.
  • At executive/top management level, a minimum of 50% black representation, 25% of which must be both female and black
  • At senior management level, a minimum of 60% black representation, 30% of which must be both female and black
  • At middle management level, a minimum of 75% black representation, 38% of which must be both female and black
  • At junior management level, a minimum of 88% black representation, 44% of which must be both female and black

Human Resource Development

  • A holder must invest 5% of the leviable amount on essential skills development.

Chris predicts:

This mining charter will eventually lead to South Africa becoming a mining backwater, a shadow of its former glory.

Even the average village idiot could tell you that the South African mining industry is going to follow a slow and painful decline with the “irony” that the very people that the mining charter is purportedly going to “empower” will be those worst affected, along with all the businesses surrounding this industry and, in turn, those businesses surrounding the mining service businesses. In short, the whole of South Africa.

Fake Hate Crime: Black man scrawled 'KKK' graffiti at Eastern Michigan U.

Mon, 04 Jun 2018 11:13:00 +0000

eowyn2

In 2016 and 2017, racist graffiti targeting black people were spray-painted on the walls of Eastern Michigan University (EMU).

It turns out that the graffiti weren’t the malicious acts of “white supremacists,” but of a black former student, Eddie Curlin, 29.

Eddie Curlin

On May 21, 2018, Washtenaw County Trial Judge David Swartz ordered Eddie Curlin to pay more than $2,000 to EMU on three counts of malicious destruction of a building, and to serve 2 to 5 years in prison on four unrelated counts of identity theft.

On April 23, Curlin had pleaded guilty to the identity theft counts as well as the graffiti counts, including:

  1. In September 2016, spray painting on an exterior wall of EMU’s King Hall the hate messages “KKK” (referencing the Ku Klux Klan) in red, white, and blue, and below that, in bold black letters “leave niggers”.
  2. In October 2016, spray painting on an exterior wall of EMU’s Ford Hall, right next to a monument to Dr. Martin Luther King, the hate message: “leave niggers”.
  3. In Spring 2017, spray painting a racist message in a men’s restroom stall in EMU’s Sherzer Hall.

Curlin attended EMU from 2014 to early 2016.

University officials say Curlin vandalized the buildings then acted as a police informant. Police believe he was motivated by hopes of acting as an informant in the case in order that previous criminal charges against him would be dropped and he would be allowed to return as a student to EMU.

After he was unmasked as the author of the racist graffiti, Curlin publicly admitted his guilt. He said at a news conference last year: “It was totally self-serving. It was not driven by politics. It was not driven by race.”

Michigan State University prof claims Americans who practice yoga contribute to white supremacy

hillary clinton yoga
Brace yourself: Liberal nonsense is coming!
From Fox News: White people who do a downward-facing dog are contributing to a “system of power, privilege, and oppression,” according to a Michigan State University professor.
Shreena Gandhi, a religious studies professor at Michigan State, claims in an article she recently co-authored that Americans who practice yoga are contributing to white supremacy and promote the “yoga industrial complex.”
White Americans should learn yoga’s history, acknowledge the cultural appropriation they engage in and possibly reduce the cost of yoga classes for poor people, a group that often includes people of color and “recent immigrants, such as Indian women to whom this practice rightfully belongs,” Gandhi argued.
She co-authored the piece titled “Yoga and the Roots of Cultural Appropriation,” with Lillie Wolff, a self-described “anti-racist white Jewish organizer, facilitator, and healer,” who has called for “decolonizing” yoga, the College Fix reported.
The two argued “the explosion of yoga studios, yoga video, apps, yoga pants, and other yoga swag over the last two decades is evidence” of the “(mis)appropriation of yoga” that “is part of systemic racism” built on “the labor of black people and people of the global south.”
“We would argue one of the goals of white supremacy is to buffer white people from the pain that comes from the process of exchanging cultural grounding for the unearned power and privilege of whiteness,” they wrote. “…this modern-day trend of cultural appropriation of yoga is a continuation of white supremacy and colonialism, maintaining the pattern of white people consuming the stuff of culture that is convenient and portable, while ignoring the well-being and liberation of Indian people.”
Gandhi and the Religious Studies Department at MSU did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
Gandhi said few white people “make the connection between their attraction to yoga and the cultural loss their ancestors and relatives experienced when they bought into white dominant culture in order to access resources,” Gandhi wrote.
But white people who twist their bodies in different yoga positions can do something about it, according to Gandhi. “Given a deeper analysis of yoga, white yoga practitioners and teachers can engage in yoga in a decolonizing way that reduces harm and seeks greater cultural accountability,” she wrote.
“Especially during this time when the underbelly of capitalism — white supremacy, cisheteropatriarchy, and xenophobia – is being exposed, it is imperative that everyone, especially those who have access to spiritual practices like yoga, ask difficult questions of ourselves and one another,” the two concluded. “We must ask, in what ways are we complicit in a system that harms people of color, queer and trans people, poor people, people with disabilities, and immigrants?”

It must be racism! Walmart puts Tide Pods in locked cabinets

Walmart is being sued by a woman who claims racism because some Walmart stores have “beauty products” for black people, like hair dye, under lock and key.

See DCG’s post “Woman sues Walmart for “segregated” beauty products“.

The reason why stores keep certain items in locked cabinets is not because of racism, but because the items are most targeted by thieves. As an example, a CVS drug store in my neighborhood now keeps electric toothbrushes and replacement brushes in a locked cabinet.
Another reason is safety.

ABC12 WJRT reports, Jan. 31, 2018, that some Walmart stores, like those in Californian cities Modesto and Stockton, are locking up Tide Laundry Pods because more and more people have been stealing them.
Walmart spokesperson Charles Crowson gave this statement:

“No retailer is immune to the challenge of crime and Walmart is no exception. The decision about which items are subject to additional in-store security is made on data gathered at the store level and often at the discretion of the store manager.”

While Walmart would not say if the moronic Tide Pod “ForbiddenFruit” Challenge affected the decision to lock up the pods, some believe the viral trend may have had an impact.
The Tide Pod challenge is a new fad that dares people to bite into the soap pod on camera. According to the Poison Control Center, in the month of January, more than 130 teenagers have purposefully bitten into the pods compared with just 53 people last year. Dr. Mai Le with Dignity Health Medical Group in Stockton, warns that ingesting the detergent pods is very dangerous, and can lead to pulmonary edema and death.
Here’s a video on what happened to a boy who popped 3 Tide Pods into his mouth:

Poison Control says if you accidentally or intentionally ingest the pods, call their hotline number right away at 1-800-222-1222 or text POISON to 79797.

75% approve Trump SOTU speech; Democrats suck lemon

A CBS News scientific poll following President Trump’s State of the Union (SOTU) speech last night, found Americans overwhelmingly approved of it.
CBS News said the poll was “based on 1,178 interviews conducted on the internet of U.S. residents who watched the State of the Union Address. Panelists were previously interviewed on January 29-30, 2018 to indicate whether they planned to watch the address, and if they were willing to be re-interviewed after the address.”
The poll results (Daily Wire) (h/t FOTM reader Big Lug):

  • 75% approve; 25% disapprove.
  • Trump’s speech was approved by 97% of Republicans, 72% of Independents, 43% of Democrats.
  • 80% said President Trump was trying to unite, instead of divide, the country.
  • On how the speech made them feel:
    • 65% “proud”
    • 35% “safer”
    • 21% “angry”
    • 14% “scared”.

Meanwhile, here are some reactions from Demonrats:

(1) From the lunatic fringe

(2) Reps. Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer

(3) Sen. Bernie Sanders

(4) Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Illinois)

Triggered by chants of USA! USA!”, Gutierrez stormed out of the House chamber:

(5) Congressional Black Caucus

(6) CNN’s Joy Reid


TV station KTVU in the San Francisco Bay Area Belly of the Liberal Beast has a poll on Twitter. Below are the results 5 minutes before this post was published. Note the large % of people who didn’t watch.
