Gregg Popovich Praises Colin Kaepernick
for Doing 'A Very Patriotic Thing'

Original Article

Posted By: QuanahCliff, 8/14/2019 10:05:38 AM

Colin Kaepernick became a source of national controversy when he knelt during the national anthem before NFL games in protest against racial inequality and police brutality in the 2016 season. /snip/ "That was a very patriotic thing he did," Popovich told Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN. "He cared about his country enough to fix some things that were obvious, that everybody knows about but does nothing about."

Comments:

Same old MO. They redefine words to fit their actions. Unpatriotic becomes patriotic in their world.

Protesters in HK are more patriotic and respectful of American flags than these ungrateful Low Lives.

Well good! Now that that immensely patriotic and wise (even though his head looks like a toilet brush) kapernick has fixed everything, maybe the progressively insane of the left will quit their constant agitation.

The man was twisted by living in Europe too long. And Kerr was contaminated by him.

That's why I could care less about the NBA. You could give me a courtside ticket and I wouldn't go.

Kaepernick didn't start his "protest" until he was benched for poor performance. Only then did he try to frame getting cut from the squad for "political reasons" instead of what it really was - his performance sucked.

I no longer watch the NFL or listen to ESPN commentary so I don't know who these dumb clucks are but I do know the 'unpatriotic' Kaepernick is still unemployed.

Popovich and Kerr are quick to spout how America is racist and we don't give minorities opportunities. I think they should give up their head coaching jobs to a minority. They could do this today. Practice what you preach guys.

I have no idea who this Poppovich is, and don't care. Kaepernick is a race baiting liar, and no kind of a patriot, he hates the country. It is fortunate that he hasn't been playing football,too.

The facts (rather than the truth) of the matter is that Colin has been offered position in the AFL, CFL, and surprisingly the NFL. But Colin no longer has the ability to be a first-string Marquee QB, and he will settle for no less, believing he should be given the position as an Affirmative Action hire.

The kneelers ignore the fact that what they said they set out to accomplish has only been made worse. Social Justice was never a real problem except in their pointed little heads and they have made racism a bigger problem than it was through their own displays of blatant racism. All they accomplished was to reduce the income of the NFL by millions of dollars and that's fine with me. The people doing the kneeling are not exactly America's finest examples.

What specifically did he actually fix? He may have highlighted something to people, but don't believe he fixed anything. You can say the same thing about Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and others who talk a lot, but never seem to do the hard work of trying to fix things. It's the reason I believe people want to hate on Trump, he actually wants to fix things that are broken, or wrong, in the United States. And, people, politicians particularly, don't want to solve problems, otherwise there is no need for that big government program that's supposed to assist people (notice not fix anything), which ends up spending more on administering the program than money that goes to the people that it's supposed to help.

As I live close to San Antonio I get to hear Popovich's rants first-hand. For an Air Force academy graduate to be so way left liberal is hard to take. Some defend his leftism as a necessary thing he invokes because of the racial mix on the team. It help when the players believe their coach marches to the same drumbeat as they do. Fortunately for San Antonio Pop has one maybe two years left on his contract after which he can retire and go drown himself in his wine cellar. Unfortunately for San Antonio the Spurs have lost the most dynamic three players (Duncan, Parker, Ginobli) the league has seen in decades. I expect the Spurs to be gone from San Antonio by 2021.

Popovich went to the Air Force Academy...graduated in 1970 I believe...his idea of patriotism is skewed at best and disgusting at its worst...I suppose as the new coach of the Olympic team he will now allow all kind of disrespect to the flag on a world stage...would not put it past him ...he might be able to coach (especially if you had Tim Duncan and David Robinson)...but his idea of patriotism and love of this country is rightly to be questioned as bizzare

CafePress.com has Betsy Ross flag bumper stickers. Ms. Ross should be a positive symbol for the left (if they knew anything at all!). As a feminist she owned her own business; she was probably one of the first suffragettes; and as a devout Quaker she was also an abolitionist. What's not to like about Ms. Ross? I bought the bumper sticker and put it on my car. It annoys my leftist friends and makes me smile every time I walk up to the rear bumper of my car.

Popovich would probably love it in Cuba. Plenty of people will pitch in for the air fare. He could even take the colon with him.

Government watchdog Judicial Watch has uncovered and released hundreds of documents showing the Obama Justice Department working directly with Fusion GPS, a research firm hired by the Clinton campaign, to frame President Trump. The documents show Fusion GPS' Nellie Ohr, who was specifically hired in 2016 to dig up dirt on Trump and his children Ivanka, Don Jr. and Eric, working directly with U.S. Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr on a spread sheet linking President Trump to a number of Russian operatives.

Senate Dems deliver stunning warning to Supreme Court: ‘Heal’ or face restructuring 28 replies

Several high-profile Senate Democrats warned the Supreme Court in pointed terms this week that it could face a fundamental restructuring if justices do not take steps to "heal" the court in the near future. The ominous and unusual warning was delivered as part of a brief filed Monday in a case related to a New York City gun law. Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, Richard Durbin, D-Ill., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., referenced rulings by the court's conservative majority in claiming it is suffering from some sort of affliction which must be remedied.

O’Rourke said, “There have even been some who have suggested that I stay in Texas and run for Senate, but that would not be good enough. That would not be good enough for this community, that would not be good enough for El Paso, that would not be good enough for this country.” He added, “We must take the fight directly to the source of this problem.

Stacey Abrams, the former Democratic nominee for Georgia governor, said Tuesday she is open to becoming the running mate for “any” of the roughly two dozen White House candidates vying to take on President Donald Trump in 2020. “I would be honored to be considered by any nominee,” she said in an interview with The New York Times. Abrams announced Tuesday she would not enter the crowded Democratic presidential primary, and would instead focus her efforts in the year-and-a-half before Election Day on combating voter suppression and boosting participation in the 2020 census. “I’ve just come to the decision that

Council Bluffs, Iowa—Democratic voters here love Mayor Pete, but they may be penalizing him because he’s gay. It’s not that they hold it against Pete Buttigieg, mayor of South Bend, Indiana, but they fear the rest of the country may not be ready for a 37-year-old, married, openly gay man to sit in the White House, so they are reluctant to help him win the party’s presidential nomination. “Pete Buttigieg is interesting to me, but, honestly, he is probably not electable, and the last thing I want is Donald Trump in office,” said David Cline. “I do believe his sexuality is an issue for folks, which is too bad.

As of Wednesday, 93,627 people have signed a petition from the left-wing site MoveOn.org to rename the stretch of Fifth Avenue in New York City between 56th and 57th Avenue after the 44th president in order to spite President Donald Trump.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez offered her opinion on whether President Trump's supporters are racist during an interview with Crooked Media's Pod Save America podcast. "First of all, the biggest mistake that we have — and it's a trap that gets set by the Right, whether intentionally or unintentionally — is just the frame of asking, 'Is blank racist?'" the New York Democrat explained, arguing the conversation needs to be about racism itself, not the people who ascribe to it. "Like all winning political phenomena ... they rely on coalition building," she continued.

When it was first reported that pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein had died in a maximum-security prison, supposedly by suicide, the Internet was immediately ablaze with conspiracy theories. That's not so strange considering that several people had warned beforehand that Epstein had dirt on many important people; people who would be well served by his untimely death. An autopsy has now found, the Washington Post reports, that Epstein "sustained multiple breaks in his neck bones, according to two people familiar with the findings." And that's rather... interesting...

Proving once again they're absolutely clueless on firearms, nearly 200 House Democrats have indicated their support for legislation banning all semi-automatic firearms nationwide. They aren't just talking about the dreaded AR-15 here. Every new Glock, outlawed. My dad's old .22 Browning target pistol, which my 13-year-old insists I leave to him in my will, would be among the last of its kind. And -- try not to think about this too hard, or you'll cry -- the Colt 1911 .45, perhaps the American sidearm, would be no more. We'll get revolvers and bolt-action rifles and that's about it.

Five Democrat senators have filed a brief with the U.S. Supreme Court, urging it to stay out of a pending Second Amendment case and warning it that a majority of Americans now believe the "Supreme Court should be restructured in order to reduce the influence of politics." The case, New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. City of New York, is the first major challenge to gun laws since 2010, the senators said. According to SCOTUS blog, the New York State Pistol and Rifle Association, representing gun owners who live in the city, are challenging the city's ban on transferring licensed, unloaded guns anywhere outside city limits --
