Clear-Cut Winner! USA Today Calls
Kaepernick Most Important
Athlete of the Decade

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 1/4/2020 1:56:42 PM

It was an inevitable, though farcical and ridiculous, ploy of the left-stream media to hoist Colin Kaepernick onto a pedestal in a review of sports in the past decade. USA Today's For The Win blog argues that he was the most important athlete of the decade. This is not a joke! Feature writer and editor Chris Korman's choice of most important athlete of the decade played little more than half a decade in the NFL. In six years he threw just 72 touchdown passes and lost 30 of 58 games as a starting quarterback.

"Most important" necessitates the question, "for what?" The award is clearly not objective, and its focus is clearly not sports.

It makes no difference how much an "athlete" actually excels at his or her sport, it only counts what sort of stupid, obnoxious, almost always massively uninformed or misinformed, statements that the "athlete" makes, and how often. Colin K is a former athlete, of very, very limited skills on the athletic field. He is just a mouthy America-hater of great ignorance, so he is loved by USAToday's propaganda staff.

The media wanted very badly for Kaepernick to be important. He isn’t. He is mostly shunned as a publicity seeking 3rd rate player who is PR poison for the NFL. If he was a great player they would overlook his personality. They don’t need to bother.

The word athlete implies that one has skills or gifts that are used in contests requiring physical agility. Colin Cancer's career suggests strongly that he doesn't qualify as an athlete, much less an important one. He is a bitter fool.

Iraqi lawmakers approved a resolution Sunday calling to expel U.S. troops from the country, following an American drone attack that killed Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani. The resolution asks the Iraqi government to end the agreement under which Washington sent forces to Iraq more than four years ago to help in the fight against the Islamic State terror group."The Iraqi government has an obligation to end the presence of all foreign forces on Iraqi soil and prevent it from using Iraqi lands, waters, and airspace or any other reason," Iraqi Parliament Speaker Mohammed al-Halboosi said in an address to lawmakers before the vote.

A lawmaker in Iran urged his countrymen to attack the White House directly in response to President Trump's order to kill top Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani."We can attack the White House itself, we can respond to them on the American soil. We have the power, and God willing we will respond in an appropriate time," MP Abolfazl Abutorabi said on Sunday, according to Iranian news agency ILNA. Soleimani is believed to be responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American service members, and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps has been deemed an official terrorist organization by the U.S. government since 2014.

The U.S. drone strike this week that killed Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani – a terrorist murderer responsible for thousands of deaths – resulted in extensive news coverage that criticized President Trump for ordering his killing and falsely portrayed Soleimani in a positive light. Journalists couldn’t pile on enough praise or make enough ridiculous comparisons glorifying Soleimani – from the despicable to the ridiculous. He was like Gen. George Patton or the Duke of Wellington (Business Insider), and former French President Charles de Gaulle or the French Foreign Legion (CNN). That strategy was hardly new.

By all accounts, Soleimani was the world’s most dangerous terrorist, responsible for the deaths of thousands. The number of people shedding tears for the leader of Iran’s infamous Quds Force is very limited, and most assuredly, Carlson was not mourning Soleimani’s death.

It’s odd how the political left cheers America’s shortcomings and mourns its victories. The United States killed the top terrorist on the planet Thursday, and Democrats were…upset. Perhaps “upset” is too vague, they were a combination of angry and scared. They were angry that President Trump ordered an air strike on Qassem Soleimani, a man responsible for the deaths of more than 600 American soldiers and thousands more wounded. They tried to pretend they were glad he was dead, that he deserved to die, but their quick condemnation of the action that took him out exposed what they were really thinking.

For decades, land-use regulation across the U.S. has emphasized single-family houses on large lots. This approach has priced many people out of the quintessential American dream: home ownership. It also has promoted suburban sprawl — a pattern of low-density, car-dependent development that has dominated growth at the edges of urban areas since the end of World War II. Now, however, Americans may be starting to question the desirability of a private house. In the past year, the Minneapolis City Council and the state of Oregon have voted to allow duplexes and other types of multi-unit housing in neighborhoods where currently only single-family homes currently are allowed.
