Lets go back to sesame street, brooksie who is on the elite side, who is with the people?

The unity of a common culture was always hated and has largely been destroyed by the left.
They seek to establish a state enforced unity of thought in its place.
Trump is merely the first skirmish in the counteroffensive by the remnants of that common culture to belatedly reestablish itself and retain our constitutional republic.

Oh and I forgot to mention Brooks is an imbecile.

Oh, and I'd really like to smack in the head anyone who says that President Trump is "inflaming" the culture wars.

People who say that appear to be defining "inflame" as "refusing to preemptively surrender to any and all provocations and attacks from the left"

And yet they wonder why they lost, and why they're ignored.

The crisis for these Americans [in Puerto Rico] needs more attention--and more urgency from the executive branch. The potable water problems are substantial.

All that matters is that Trump is shredding the culture and ending the dominance of the meritocratic establishment.

Yes, the wedgies will continue as we laugh at your silly notion that you have a thing called "merit" that you can call your own Brooksie.

Momto2,

Thanks for grabbing that last tweet from President Trump saying the NFL needs a rule on the national anthem.

Yes, I did go back to bed!

The NFL seems to have forgotten the sacrifice of Pat Tillman pretty quickly.

Executives aren't legislators, Brooks. Idiot!

Didn't you know? Tillman was killed by friendly fire so it doesn't count, according to the prog-approved rules for sacrificing one's life for one's country.

GUS,

Not a coincidence, as I said this morning. I want to know WHO organized this and I would bet cash money President Trump knows.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee "took a knee" in the House as cameras rolled. She demanded Trump name and apologize to the black mother/s referenced in his "Get that son of a b**** off the field right now. Out. He’s fired. He’s fired!” .. The NFL is ~70% AA and the NBA ~75%.

Someone mentioned, I think, that they thought the Clintooon Crime Family Global Foundation had shut down. Not according to the overall crime family's website, which I endured as long as the rising bile level permitted. To the surprise of nobody, there are lots of icons to click to donate.

Patrick R. Sullivan, hello! Nice to see you.

"Unity" to the left means "agreeing with us and renouncing your own principles."

No thanks.

Rep Lee, you do recognize that your name "LEE" is racist and offensive. As is your ugly face.
Mizz Lee, do you have a son in the NFL, BITCH??

Don't normally go to Hot Air, but this was linked on my Twitter feed. I sure would like to know which schools had assistant coaches arrested:

DebinGA

Oops! My bad. I don't think Lee mentioned "moms" but she quoted DT's "son of a bitch" remark and labeled it "racism". The implication I take from that is Lee claiming DT thinks black women are bitches, as including all women wouldn't be racism but sexism I suppose.

Momto2

Glad you got some more shut-eye, MM. That's how I'm sleeping lately - a couple of hours here a couple there.

Actually going to school today for the first time - not teaching just visiting for the lunch hour. First big outing (other than doctor appointments) in 6 weeks.

That is such a great point about the removal of flags, statues, and now the beginning of disrespect for our red,white, and blue. Certainly a concerted effort - glad our President isn't straddling the fence.

For the Cowboys: "We know what happens to people who stay in the middle of the road. They get run over."

Two of the assistant coaches named are Chuck Conners Person and Rashan Michel. Person is a former Indiana Pacer so this document got posted by local radio.

It also gets more interest here because NCAA headquarters is in Indianapolis.

Interesting to me that the same collection of leftists that regale in suppressing free speech at Berkeley, Middlebury, Mizzou, et.al. are using 1st Amendment protection to support the NFL players.

At this time in BOzo's first term, 2-3 PBS "Performance At the White House" shows had aired, featuring the BOzos decked out in their finest along with invited guests being entertained by famous musicians. This tradition began in 1978 and continued through every administration. Any reason to think the reason the Trumps are the exception is an enforced Dem boycott?

rse

I put up some links on the previous thread to the deliberate cultural evolution attempts we see in play with this kneeling and also the Charlottesville Conversations that were all ready to go on Teaching Tolerance awaiting the tiki torch graphics from the Lee Statue removal calls.

Here's where the "Evolving Right and Left" paper I mentioned that assumed trump would lose came out on what it called the Traditionalism worldview with its 'cultural heritage" component.

"...the downside of heritage value complex can be recognized in bigoted nativism, jingoistic warmongering, oppressive authoritarianism, and parochial resistance to [my bolding] greater inclusion through the evolution of human morality.

One may not resist in other words the Marxist Humanist obligation to meet all needs and recognize the common humanity with attendant obligations of everyone.

Pope che is pleased and Paulo freire's work with the World Council of Churches just keeps bearing fruit that align with the ed schools and public policy degrees.

Trump appearing on Fox right now with Ways and Means committee. Discusses principles of the new tax policy and then talk about Puerto Riico and announces he is going Tuesday.

I will get a video to post as soon as I can find one.

Threadkiller

Penguins accused of racism!

Michael Medved dabbled in that yesterday. He noted that Trump's negative tweets to the NFL were tinged with racism not for there content so much as how they compared to Trump's positive tweets to the NHL and Nascar. To make his assumption have factual weight behind it he explained to the audience that Confederate flags can be found on bumpers in the parking lots of race car tracks.

henry

Are they burning Canadian flags too now TK?

Threadkiller

According to Medved logic, they are too white to do such a thing, henry.

Kushner used private email to conduct White House business

The senior adviser set up the account after the election. Other West Wing officials have also used private email accounts for official business.

"Lowell said Kushner has adhered to government record-keeping requirements by forwarding all the emails to his account ..."

The current EO requires that either a government email be used or the email be forwarded to a government email account that will log it.

The way Kushner has configured his email is perfect of a White House employee who may be a 'political operative' from time to time.

By using a private email account and forwarding all the emails to his government account, Kushner meets the required of the EO on compliance with the Federal Records Act and avoids even the appearance of violating the Hatch Act by not using government equipment to send any possibly political emails. (Last I checked, sending political emails to a government email system is not against the law).

Captain Hate

Does Medved think he works for Air America?

The sad truth I glean from Villanuaeva's back peddle is that I was correct that the majority of soldiers won't have our backs whe civil unrest hits us in the mouth.

henry, apologies if I've asked you this before, but since you live in Wisconsin...are you familiar with a company called Dave Koch Sports based in Stevens Point?

Just curious - they make stat-based, super detailed sports simulations.

DebinGA

Villaneuva's explanation makes sense to me. He didn't back-pedal. There was an agreed upon plan that went wrong when the two team captains were prevented from joining him, giving the erroneous perception that he alone was willing to honor the flag/anthem.

henry

James. Not familiar with them (never been to Stevens Point).

Indiana used to be the tomato capital of the US. It's why Red Gold is still based here.

When my dad was a kid, all of the bottom land around White River was planted with tomatoes. This was before they developed the strains of tomatoes which could be shipped without dmage. It's why Stokley-Van Camp used to be located here, too.

Asking Steve Stricker about how the US team will react to the National Anthem when the President's Cup kicks off. LOL.

Golfers are even more patriotic than NASCAR (I give you Dale Earnhardt, Jr. as the misfit).

Stricker did ask the team and they said they will stand, face the flag and hand over heart. They better since they will be in the shadow of the Statute of Liberty.

JIB: Do you really think the golfers are more patriotic? Patriotism, to me, means love of and respect of our country.

I'm not sure that in this controversy, NFL, flag, anthem, kneeling, standing, etc., that it hasn't devolved, with the democrats and liberals, into Trump haters and Hillary voters thinking they can use this as a cudgel against the president.

Weren't the golfers, the PGA, the ones who cancelled their event at Trump's hotel and moved it to Mexico? Or was that just more fake news and didn't happen. I remember reading about it -- also, one of the top golfers was interviewed or had a spot on ESPN where he criticized President Trump.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just surprised that you view the golfers as patriotic. I was truly pissed off when I heard they moved an event to Mexico (if, indeed, it happened.)

Frau Rechtsverdreher

Miss M at 12:20 - leftist necks are going to ache from whiplash as the Trump WH grinds out various startling actions faster than a speeding bullet.

It was amusing to read the probable complaint that at *this time in BHO's first term* the WH had already had 2-3 musical evenings featuring the first family and prominent guests. It's been a while since there was a working president, hasn't it?

Wictor's words matched my feeling that almost all of the manufactured, meaningless disturbances in the prog force are of the Quemoy-Matsu variety: political outrages of no consequence.

Threadkiller

From Villanuaeva's retreat:

Every single one of my teammates is extremely supportive and extremely patriotic in this locker room. And I can not only say that for this locker room, but I can say that across the NFL, every single player that I've gone against.

#EveryoneGetsATrophey

Threadkiller

Villanuaeva does get this right:

So essentially what we can get out of this is we butchered our plan to sort of have a response for the national anthem and respect everyone's opinions.

I thought everyone you ever met in you entire life was uber-patriotic? Why go to the effort of scamming the rest of us in the name unity?

Even the best of the best of the best can be bought.

We are not up against some locker rooms conspiracy, though there was no doubt that too.
