Jonathan Isaac's protest could've been applauded
if his explanation wasn't nonsense

Original Article

The NBA’s greatest fear was a player radical enough to go beyond its collectively bargained, wink-wink, nod-nod “protest,” not a player so radical that he would protest the protest in the other direction. But Orlando Magic forward Jonathan Isaac felt so compelled to work his way into the loophole, a Black player doing the unthinkable of sorts, refusing to kneel during Friday’s national anthem and eschewing the Black Lives Matter shirt all the players have been warming up in the re-start at Walt Disney World.

Comments:

Mr. Goodwill provides a lesson as to how The Community keeps its people in line. While admitting the act of standing was courageous, he diminishes Isaac's act by dismissing his "explanation" as disingenuous nonsense, going so far as to call Isaac "a token". Note: Isaac did this with the support of his teammates. Let's see if any rise to his defense versus pundits such as the ironically-named Mr. Goodwill.

Had it been the other way around, the headline would’ve read: Actions speak louder than words. How one man’s protest sheds light on an important cause.

But what are the BLM sympathizers protesting? Is it free speech, is it the freedom to stand for the national anthem, is it their salaries? Oh yes, it's police brutality. The statistics don't back that up under examination, but it doesn't matter. Not where paranoia and anger rule the day.

If we could pass a constitutional amendment declaring failure to watch all nba games and owning licensed paraphernalia of at least one team to be racist could really help business.

I deliberately didn’t post this snarky article earlier because it was in opposition to another Yahoo Sports article which was not critical of Mr. Isaac for choosing to stand and wear a team shirt rather than blm. Without editorialization, it reported what Mr. Isaac did and quoted his statement without mockery. I posted that one instead. Goodwill showed anything but good will. Instead he snarked at Isaac and mocked his religion. Karma awaits Mr. Goodwill.

Jonathan Isaac is courageous, a man a character and a good athlete. If he is not well spoken and articulate, so what. Few athletes are and I still respect their skill. I was a complete verbal dunce at that age and I had a STEM degree. Jonathan Isaac had no reason to explain anything. He plays basketball better that any reporter from Yahoo News can play at journalism. This creepy author is a hateful man and he owes Mr. Isaac an apology.

Re #7, I found I hadn’t posted the other Yahoo article - the good one - but linked it on the thread for an article about all the fools who took a knee. It is now up, posted just a few minutes ago. A far better report than this snarky opinion piece.

BLM has bee taken over by the Marxist and the are too dumb to realize it. When will someone arise who speaks truth to the mobs? Good well is a useful tool if the Marxist who will silence everyone who fails to speak the party lines. The world already has many examples of that yet weak leaders of corporations and universities fall dutifully in line. What should be done? I think freedom loving people know.

One can only wonder how many of those kneeling only did so because of peer pressure. Some of them must know that BLM is not an organization interested in blacks having a better life, but they are afraid to take a stand.

Kanye West has dropped his 2020 presidential bid, according to a new report. The 43-year-old rapper's campaign has reportedly been suspended less than two weeks after he shocked the nation with a tweet that confirmed his decision to run for president of the United States in November. According to a new report from Intelligencer, a "get-out-the-vote specialist" named Steve Kramer claims West is already "out" after the Yeezy founder hired both "paid and volunteer" staff to help him secure signatures in Florida and South Carolina to get him on the ballot.

Spoiler alert: 2020 has been rough on the American psyche. Folks in the U.S. are more unhappy today than they've been in nearly 50 years. This bold – yet unsurprising – conclusion comes from the COVID Response Tracking Study, conducted by NORC at the University of Chicago. It finds that just 14% of American adults say they're very happy, down from 31% who said the same in 2018. That year, 23% said they'd often or sometimes felt isolated in recent weeks. Now, 50% say that. The survey, conducted in late May, draws on nearly a half-century of research...
Will U.S. Shale Ever Return To Its Boom Days? 8 replies
Posted by MDConservative 6/8/2020 10:44:50 AM Post Reply
U.S. shale drillers are bringing back shut in production three months after the onset of the current downturn. But steep decline rates will increasingly take hold, dragging down overall U.S. output later this year. With oil prices approaching $40 per barrel, many drillers are covering immediate operational costs. Rystad Energy estimates that “a bit more than 300,000 bpd” of shut in U.S. oil production has come back online. A total of 1.15 million barrels per day (mb/d) was shut in in April and May, and that output will “return swiftly over July and August,” JBC Energy wrote in a note.

On Aug. 1, 1945, 12-year-old Hideko Sudo went to bed fully clothed and full of worry. For days, air raid alerts had left the coastal city of Toyama on edge, prompting her school's closure. More alarmingly, earlier that day, American planes had rained down leaflets warning of an imminent attack. Hideko's fears proved well-founded. Despite a sophisticated alert system and a decade of air defense drills, the arrival just after midnight of a wave of B-29 bombers plunged Toyama into chaos. Superfortresses — 173 of them — encountered only sparse antiaircraft fire as they released around 1,500 tons of incendiaries onto the city's center.

President Trump seems determined to sow confusion and chaos ahead of the 2020 election. Laurence Tribe says the president is trying to make the election ‘look chaotic’ and mentions a ‘fail safe’: President Nancy Pelosi. "There is a procedure -- it's a very elaborate procedure -- in every state for resolving disputes by the date of the so-called safe harbor on December 8th," Tribe explained. "So, really, all of the efforts that Trump is making to both pretend that he can extend the date of the election, which everyone understands he can't do that. That date is set at November 3rd by act of Congress."

How many tens of thousands of Americans must die because of Dr. Fauci’s mistakes? It is becoming more and more apparent with each new day and as more information is accumulated that Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx, the CDC and the FDA failed in their response to the China Coronavirus. Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx pushed a completely fraudulent Imperial College study to lockdown and destroy the greatest economy in US history. Dr. Anthony Fauci has made at least 15 critical mistakes and contradictions since the start of the pandemic in March. Perhaps Dr. Fauci’s most deadly mistake is his response to hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) treatments for the disease.

Former national security adviser Susan Rice would be a “human lightning rod” if selected to be Democrat Joe Biden’s running mate, a Washington Post columnist wrote Friday. Rice, who is reported to be among shrinking list of Biden vice presidential contenders, has the advantage of a longstanding close relationship with Biden, unlike any of the other names on the list. But Biden's want for “familiarity and comfort” are luxuries the nation doesn’t have time for in this singular time of crisis, Post columnist Dana Milbank writes. Despite Rice’s impressive resume -- Rhodes scholar, Oxford, U.N ambassador, national security adviser -- she has serious Benghazi baggage
