FYI dumb*sses: These flyovers are training missions for the pilots.

Why Democrats hate the flag: Seeing even a small American flag can make you vote Republican

This why “Progressives”, including “woke” corporations like the NFL, are allergic to the American flag and the national anthem.

A study found that just seeing even a small American flag one time shifted both Democrats and Republicans toward the Republican end of the ideological spectrum in beliefs, attitudes, as well as voting intentions and behavior.

The study, “A Single Exposure to the American Flag Shifts Support Toward Republicanism up to 8 Months Later,” by Travis J. Carter (University of Chicago), Melissa J. Ferguson (Cornell University) and Ran R. Hassin (Hebrew University) was published in Psychological Science on July 8, 2011.

Here is the Abstract:

We report that a brief exposure to the American flag led to a shift toward Republican beliefs, attitudes, and voting behavior among both Republican and Democratic participants, despite their overwhelming belief that exposure to the flag would not influence their behavior. In Experiment 1, which was conducted online during the 2008 U.S. presidential election, a single exposure to an American flag resulted in a significant increase in participants’ Republican voting intentions, voting behavior, political beliefs, and implicit and explicit attitudes, with some effects lasting 8 months after the exposure to the prime. In Experiment 2, we replicated the findings more than a year into the current Democratic presidential term. These results constitute the first evidence that nonconscious priming effects from exposure to a national flag can bias the citizenry toward one political party and can have considerable durability.

Ed Yong of Discover magazine has more details on the study.

Experiment #1:

  • In the run-up to the 2008 US presidential election, a group of around 200 volunteers were asked them about their political views.
  • A month or so later, the volunteers were divided into two groups that were comparable in their political beliefs, voting intentions and other variables.
  • Both groups rated how likely they were to vote for either the Democrat Barack Obama or the Republican John McCain on an online questionnaire.
  • The questionnaires were identical except for one small detail – in the top left corner of the screen, one group saw a small American flag and the other saw nothing.
  • That tiny difference was enough to swing their voting preferences. Those who saw the tiny flag became more likely to vote for McCain than Obama (relative to their answers at the start of the experiment); felt more positive towards Republicans; and showed a small Republican bias in their unconscious atittudes.
  •  After the election, the volunteers were asked whom they actually voted for. Those who saw the flag were less likely to have voted for Obama than those who didn’t (73% versus 84%). They were also more likely to think that the media were unduly harsh in their treatment of McCain.
  • The flag effect lasted for at least 8 months. In July 2009, eight months after the experiment, participants who saw the tiny flag on-screen still showed some Republican bias. They were less happy about Obama’s job performance than their peers, less warm about other Democrat leaders, and even held slightly more conservative views.

Experiment #2:

  • In spring of 2010, with Obama a year in power, a new group of 70 volunteers were asked to look at four photographs. Half the people saw buildings with flags in front of them; the others saw photos where the flags had been digitally removed.
  • Even though the two groups had the same spectrum of political beliefs beforehand, the flag group shifted towards a Republican worldview after seeing the photos.

Now you know why the Left — Democrats, Progressives, woke capitalists, the media — are allergic and downright hostile to the American flag, national anthem, statues of the Founding Fathers, and patriotism in general.

Race hustler Colin Kaepernick scores Di$ney deal despite USA’s racist white supremacy

Social justice warrior Colin Kaepernick is so oppressed, y’all. The black man who is worth $20 MILLION in the good ‘ol USA is so very, VERY, VERY oppressed.

On Independence Day Colin tweeted out the following about how bad, bad, and racist America is. Keep in mind he did this while living in the the same country that allowed HIM to accumulate more wealth than most of us with “white privilege” will ever achieve:

A couple days later he was rewarded with this:

Ain’t America great?!!

Olay teams up with pro-aborts to #MakeSpaceForWomen

Olay, owned by the progressive-run Procter & Gamble, has teamed up with several liberals to promote a Super Bowl ad that advances women in space. Biased journalist Katie Couric tweeted the following ad promotion:

“I’m so excited to be teaming up with @BusyPhilipps @TherealTaraji @Lilly @Astro_Nicole for @olayskin’s female-led #SuperBowl ad! Olay is making an impact by donating $1 to @girlswhocode for every tweet that uses #MakeSpaceForWomen! #ad”

So how do the women participating in this Olay ad “make space for women?”

By promoting the murder of innocent girls in the womb.

Actress Busy Philipps has long been a proponent of abortion. Last year she discussed how she was “genuinely really scared for women and girls all over this country” because of Georgia’s abortion bill. She had an abortion at 15 and “can not [sic] sit idly by while women’s rights are stripped away.”

Kind of hard to #MakeSpaceForWomen while stripping their right to life away from them in the womb.

Katie Couric (l) and Cecile Richards (r)

Back in 2017, long-time left-wing “journalist” Katie Couric fawned over then “badass” Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards. From Newsbusters:

Katie Couric unabashedly abandoned her “journalist” cover earlier this week to show solidarity for America’s largest abortion provider. On Wednesday, anchor Katie Couric interviewed “badass” Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards and author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie on “How to Raise a Feminist” at the Women in the World Summit held in New York City. Much of the conversation focused on Planned Parenthood, now “under siege” and “assault” in the political world.”

The irony from the introduction at this summit on how to define a feminist? “A child given every opportunity to pursue his or her dreams regardless of gender norms.”

Kind of hard to #MakeSpaceForWomen to be given an opportunity to pursue her dreams if she’s murdered in the womb.

But that’s liberal logic for ‘ya: It’s not designed to make sense.

Fake MAGA Crime: Former NFL player charged for spraying the “N” word and MAGA on walls to make it look like a hate crime

Faux victim Edwan Coughman

From Daily Mail: A former NFL player was arrested by police for allegedly wrecking two of his own businesses to stage a fake hate crime and be eligible to receive insurance money.

Authorities from the Gwinnett County Police Department in Georgia responded to a ‘burglary in progress’ call around 9.30pm on Wednesday when a witness reported a man damaging businesses.

The two businesses, Create and Bake Restaurant and Coughman’s Creamery, belonged to former NFL player and local business owner Edwan Coughman.

Inside the businesses, officers found ‘monkey’, the n-word, ‘MAGA’ and swastikas scrawled on the walls in fresh black spray paint.

‘The smell of spray paint was very fresh. When officers touched it, the paint appeared wet,’ a news release from police said.

The cushions were reportedly sliced open, mirrors were broken, wires were cut, TVs were missing and the surveillance system was broken.

According to a news release, the witness told officers the suspect was driving a Chevrolet Silverado with no license plate.

Cpl. Michele Pihera told Gwinette Daily Post: ‘We believe he used that possibly not to have the truck or identity of the truck return back to him.’

After authorities dispatched to look for the suspicious vehicle saw one that matched the description leaving a shopping center. Behind the wheel was Coughman.

Officers noticed several TVs both inside and in the bed of his truck that were still attached to brackets with damaged drywall. Coughman was also wearing a pair of gloves, the Gwinette Daily Post reported.

The 31-year-old told authorities he realized his businesses had be burglarized earlier in the day, but contacted his insurance company instead of local police.

Suspicious, police officers obtained a search warrant to search Coughman’s car on Thursday.They found cans of black spray paint and a crow bar allegedly used to pry open the back door to one of the businesses.

Coughman was arrested in the early morning hours of Thursday for false report of a crime, insurance fraud and concealing a license plate.

The police statement said: ‘It appears as though Edawn conjured a premeditated plan to damage his own property, attempt to make it appear as a hate crime, file a claim with his insurance company, and sell off the undamaged appliances and electronics.’

Cpl. Pihera told the Gwinette Daily Post: ‘We don’t know if he was trying to get attention for this. What we do know is, if that witness had not called us and if those officers had not responded as quickly as they did, we would probably be sitting here talking about a completely different crime in which Mr. Coughman would be trying to say he’s a victim.’

As the investigation continues, the number of victims will be determined.

‘We’re also looking into the fact that his insurance company could also be a victim, depending on if a claim was in process. … There’s also a possibility the owner of the building could also be a victim,’ Pihera said.

‘The case does not fit the mold of our typical criminal investigations, so we have to look outside of the box to see how many victims we truly have.’

Coughman was bonded out of jail.

Another NFL team goes “woke” as Seattle Seahawks get rid of Sea Gal cheerleaders & become Seahawk Dancers (with men)

What is it with these NFL teams? Are they purposely trying to decrease their ever-decreasing attendance/TV rating numbers?

Men at football games do not want to see men cheerleaders. They want to see cute girls in cute little outfits.

And for that matter, I don’t believe many women want to see gay men prancing around on the field. They’d rather watch the big, burly football players.

Yet in an ever-increasing progressive and “woke” atmosphere, the NFL must cater to the SJWs and have all inclusive cheerleading, I mean dance teams.

The Seattle Seahawks are not the first NFL team to fall into this trap. See the following:

Male dancing cheerleaders join NFL team, the LA Rams

New Orleans Saints first male cheerleader dances his way onto the field

This is stupid, even to this never-was-a-cheerleader-girl: NFL’s Colts cheerleaders succumb to the #MeToo movement

According to the SeahawksWire, the cheerleading team formerly known as the “Sea Gals” will add men to their squad and now be known as “Seahawk Dancers.”

Their reasoning? They “continually look for ways to evolve the gameday entertainment.”

Guess the SeaHawks can kiss the formerly-known as Sea Gals annual calendar revenue bye, bye.

US women’s soccer star won’t sing national anthem again as an “F you to Trump”

Butthurt is not an attractive look…

From Daily Mail: Women’s soccer star Megan Rapinoe has revealed she will probably never sing or honor the national anthem again. Rapinoe proudly sang ‘Born in the USA’ into a microphone after scoring a decisive point in a 3-0 win vs. Colombia during a FIFA World Cup qualifying match in 2011.

Over the span of eight years, however, the outspoken athlete, part of the beloved 2015 women’s World Cup-winning team, has gone from patriotic national champion to US cultural critic, becoming as famous for her activism on and off the field as she is for her electrifying play and once-plentiful charismatic displays of love for her country.

The Redding, California native and American poster girl recently became the first openly-gay woman to pose for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and she’s set to help the US women’s team compete for another FIFA World Cup trophy this summer with a qualifying match against Thailand scheduled for June 11.

In a lengthy interview with Yahoo Sports, Rapinoe explains why she most likely won’t be singing or honoring the Star Spangled Banner the way she has in the past, not this summer, or anytime in the foreseeable future.

‘I’ll probably never put my hand over my heart. ‘I’ll probably never sing the national anthem again,’ she definitively stated during an interview published Monday.

‘I feel like it’s kind of defiance in and of itself to just be who I am and wear the jersey, and represent it. Because I’m as talented as I am, I get to be here, you don’t get to tell me if I can be here or not.’

She continued: ‘It’s kind of a good ‘F you’ to any sort of inequality or bad sentiments that the [Trump] administration might have towards people who don’t look exactly like him. Which, God help us if we all looked like him. Scary. Really scary. Ahh, disturbing.’

Rapinoe hasn’t turned her back on her country. She seems to feel it’s many from her country who have turned their backs on folks like her and others from marginalized groups.

In 2016, she took a knee during a pre-game National Anthem performance in solidarity with former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who used the gesture as a means of silent protest against racism and police brutality after a string of high-profile fatal shootings of black Americans by law enforcement officers.

‘I know what it means to look at the flag and not have it protect all of your liberties,’ Rapinoe told reporters at the time.

Al Sharpton approved: LeBron James says NFL team owners have slave mentality

Birds of a feather…

LeBron being a good progressive and keeping the hate and divide alive and well…

From Yahoo: LeBron James, who has consistently used his platform as one of the most famous men in America to discuss social issues, has said that NFL owners have a “slave mentality”.

The Los Angeles Lakers star made the comments on Friday’s broadcast of his HBO discussion show, The Shop. “In the NFL they got a bunch of old white men owning teams and they got that slave mentality,” James said. “And it’s like, ‘This is my team. You do what the f*ck I tell y’all to do. Or we get rid of y’all.’

James’s comments come after a stormy few seasons in the NFL. Two players, Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid, have filed grievances against the league and its teams’ owners alleging they colluded to keep them out of football due to their stance on social issues. Both men knelt during the national anthem to highlight racial injustice in the United States. Although Reid has now found a team, the Carolina Panthers, this week he said he had been randomly drug tested by the league six times in 11 weeks. Yahoo Sports calculated the chances of that happening were 0.17%.

The NBA, on the other hand, has been praised for being much more progressive on social issues. “The difference between the NBA and the NFL, the NBA is what we believe he [a player] can be. The potential,” James said. “In the NFL, it’s like what can you do for me this Sunday, or this Monday or this Thursday, and if you ain’t it, we moving on.”

James highlighted the work of the NBA’s commissioner, Adam Silver, in making the league a welcoming environment for players. “I’m so appreciative in our league of our commissioner,” James said. “He doesn’t mind us having … a real feeling and to be able to express that. It doesn’t even matter if Adam agrees with what we are saying, he at least wants to hear us out. As long as we are doing it in a very educational, nonviolent way, then he’s absolutely OK with it.”

James has been quick to speak up about social issues in the past. He is a long-time critic of the US president, Donald Trump. In an interview with the web series Uninterrupted in January, James said of Trump: “The number one job in America … is someone who doesn’t understand the people, and really don’t give a f*ck about the people.”

In February, James explained why he was critical of the president: “While we cannot change what comes out of that man’s mouth, we can continue to alert the people that watch us, that listen to us, that this is not the way.”

Suck it Hollyweird: Ratings for 2018 Emmy Awards hit all-time low

From Fox News: Hollywood may have laughed when Emmys host Michael Che said the only white people who thank Jesus are “Republicans and ex-crackheads,” but Tinseltown’s latest middle finger to Middle America fell flat in flyover country, and may have contributed to the telecast’s all-time low viewership.

Co-host Michael Che left many viewers of the 70th Annual Emmy Awards upset during the opening monologue with his fellow “Saturday Night Live” star Colin Jost, explaining that his mother would not be watching the show on Monday night.

“She says she doesn’t like watching white award shows because you guys don’t thank Jesus enough,” Che said. “That’s true. The only white people that thank Jesus are Republicans and ex-crackheads.

The joke didn’t sit well with some viewers, who took to Twitter to complain. Not only that, the show’s ratings dropped 10 percent from last year’s already-dismal numbers, setting an all-time low, according to TheWrap.

While many viewers may have changed the channel after the opening monologue, jabs at average Americans were far from over and the Jesus gag became a running theme throughout the evening.

Conservative strategist Chris Barron told Fox News that “large swaths of the American public just want to be entertained” but instead were turned into “unwilling participants” in a political rally disguised as an awards show.

“Whether it’s the NFL or the Emmys, people desperately want a break from politics. It’s amazing to me at just how tone deaf Hollywood is,” Barron said.

“Most Republicans have stopped watching awards shows or know that even if they can stomach it, the White House and their core values will be attacked. I kept thinking last night, thank goodness for a few actors like Chris Pratt, who buck the trend and show a healthy respect and love for Christianity in acceptance speeches,” Fox Nation host Britt McHenry said. “Reverence for God is something to cherish and uphold, not ridicule.”

Jokes about religious Republicans weren’t the only jabs at Middle America.

Prior to the official event, actress Regina King spoke with E! about a cryptic Instagram post in which she asked to “stop making stupid people famous,” which many have interpreted as a dig at President Trump. The Red Carpet also featured actress Jennifer Lewis wearing a Nike sweatshirt “to applaud them for supporting Colin Kaepernick,” who has polarized the nation by starting the trend of kneeling during the national anthem prior to NFL games.

Jost discussed a handful of shows that were canceled and picked up by other networks before joking that Roseanne Barr’s show was “picked up by white nationalists.” He also implied that some Americans don’t think Nazis are bad and fantasized about President Obama upsetting Trump with a dig at the former reality TV star who is famously obsessed with ratings.

“The Obamas now even have their own production deal at Netflix,” Jost said. “My dream is that the only thing they produce is their own version of ‘The Apprentice.’ And it gets way higher ratings.”

Meanwhile, the Emmys decided to honor late Senator John McCain during its in memoriam. Nobody would complain about an American hero being remembered in front of a national audience, but Media Research Center contributing writer Karen Townsend questioned the motive behind the decision.

One can’t help but wonder if this was done as a subtle dig at President Trump. After all, it was only 10 years ago that all of Hollywood hated McCain when he ran for president against their beloved Obama,” she wrote.

Later in the show, award winner Ryan Murphy called America a “country that lets hatred grow unfettered and unchecked.” Anti-Trump comedian Samantha Bee – best known for vile comments about first daughter Ivanka Trump – joked that the news should “recast the lead.”
