A photo of former Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake attending Super Bowl LVII has gone viral, but for reasons you might not expect. The former news anchor turned GOP firebrand was seen sitting during the controversial playing of the Black national anthem ahead of the game, which took place Sunday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. A photo of her refusing to stand for the anthem was posted on social media and quickly sparked a frenzy of people praising her decision.


I love her more everyday

People do not have to stand, wear a mask, stay home, drive an EV, or eat bugs. The left cannot stand it.

Not appropriate at the Super Bowl. At an NAACP meeting perhaps. In the USA there is but one National Anthem.

I refused to stand at an event my daughter participated in at UNC back in early 2000. My niece tried to force me to stand, and I gave her a look similar to Kari's. That look says, don't play with me. I really like this beautiful woman.

What’s worse, lefties, sitting through it or playing on your phone for the duration? No way would I stand. It’s racist and it’s phony. There is only one National Anthem and that isn’t it.

I will say that the song, which was not introduced as a "Black National Anthem," is an uplifting song and its verses do call us to better our lives, white, black, brown, red, or whatever. But since it is not a national anthem of the USA or any other country, there is no requirement, real or for polite company, for anyone to stand for the song. I'd be sitting down as well.

The NFL did not ID this as music as a national anthem of any color. And it was appropriate that she stood for the national anthem of the USA

It's not an Anthem, more of a prayer set to music, at NASCAR and Rodeos, and the sports events that still do it I stand(and remove my hat) for the convocation, and the national Texas for the State Anthem. At a restaurant or such, I stand when my Mother, my date, or the mother/date of someone I'm with, as they arrive or depart. Not for any/every random woman that happens by.

To Lake and many others, Lift Every Voice is just another song. There is no reason to stand up unless you believe in and support racial segregation. What's next? An Hispanic national anthem, Asian national anthem, White national anthem? One would think that Civil Rights activists would be against separate national anthems being played as they favor on race over another. Is the NFL supporting Black racism or Black supremacy by playing the "Black" national anthem (if you want to take things to an extreme)?

I stand when they play the National Anthem (with my hand over my heart). I stand for the reciting of the pledge of allegiance. I stand when someone leads a prayer. But I do not stand for a not-very-good song that some racist people call "The Black National Anthem". We only have one nation anthem in this country that does not see color or race!!!!! God I pray that Kari Lake is the next Senator from the great state of Arizona!!!!! I also remember why I can't stand the "woke" NFL and haven't watched a game in 5 years. After being a huge fan for probably 50+ years, I don't miss it at all!!!!

Kari is so right. The song, based on a poem originally performed in honor of Abraham Lincoln’s birthday on February 12, 1900, and later set to music five years later by the poet's brother, John Rosamond. I'd like to think I'd have taken a knee, even if 4 strong men would be needed to stand me back up.

A. Kari Lake is not black. B. Black national anthem (formerly Negro National Anthem, from a poem written by James Weldon Johnson, in 1900; celebrating the God-wrought freedom of people oppressed by slavery) is a nice song, ( but it does not have the universal appeal of the Francis Scott Keyes National Anthem. I encourage everyone to read the full versions of both songs. ( C. #18 -The NFL has NOT been taken over by "the Black culture" whatever that is. The Super Bowl half time acts are chosen by the league, the hosting city, or by a contract with a talent agency. Remember when it was hosted in Detroit? A white group was the headliner and not one black Motown recording artist was chosen. The ensuing outcry forced them to make a minor change. Here is a list of all the Super Bowl performers since 1967. . Judge for yourself whether or not 'black culture' is taking it over. Side note: after the Janet Jackson fake wardrobe malfunction; it seems each single artist half-time show gets a little more vulgar or raunchy; pushing the envelope so far, it is unwatchable - especially for kids. :-(

It is very sad. Every thing Martin Luther King Jr. tried to achieve is being torn down little by little. He was a man of class, dignity, and peace. I actually think what the NFL did Superbowl Sunday disrespected the black community mostly with the performance by Rihanna. That truly was an insult to class, dignity, and peace. . .

Kari Lake is EVERYTHING the woke, racist, arrogant, pinheaded left hates with a White-hot passion. Brave, bold, articulate, passionate and dare I say very pretty. She also has experience in dealing with the fake news democrat propaganda media and knows their play book. Kari makes loser RINO "men" like Turtle McConnell, Milquetoast Mittens, Mini Mike Dicky Pence look small. I'm glad that she didn't stand for the racist pandering by that gutless coward Roger Goodell and CO. For me there's only one Anthem and I'll proudly stand with my hand over my heart to hear it every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

Where does it say that everyone has to stand up for that song? Anyone can write a song and claim that it is related to some political or social issue and that everyone should stand when the song is performed.

A conservative watchdog group is accusing Air Force Gen. Charles Q. Brown Jr. of embracing race-based hiring and promotions in the military for the sake of "diversity". The American Accountability Foundation (AAF), an opposition research group that has claimed credit for dismantling several Biden nominations, is now targeting Brown, who is the president's nominee to serve as the next chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. At issue for the group are various public statements Brown has made in which he offered full-throated support for the military's diversity, equity and inclusion, or DEI, programs.

Target has ramped up its DEI efforts, in particular after the death of George Floyd in 2020.

Twenty years removed from being tapped as communications director for a Republican president, Nicolle Wallace is now one of MSNBC's most rabid left-wing hosts and fervent Russiagate boosters. Unsurprisingly, she has been quite speedy to dismiss any revelations undercutting the collusion narrative she enthusiastically pushed for years. Following the release of the Durham Report which concluded that the Trump-Russia investigation dubbed "Crossfire Hurricane" was based on "raw, unanalyzed and uncorroborated intelligence," Wallace accused the probe launched by Special Counsel John Durham of being predicated on a "rabbit hole conspiracy." In fact, she made the assessment within minutes of the 320-page report's release.

The once prestigious Lancet medical journal has made the astounding claim the year 2023 saw “the highest global temperatures in over 100,000 years,” even though temperature data collection only began in the 19th century. According to NASA, three of the world’s most complete temperature tracking records, maintained by NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Climatic Data Center, and the U.K. Meteorological Office’s Hadley Centre, began in 1880. Although sporadic attempts to measure temperature were made, “there are too few data before 1880 for scientists to estimate average temperatures for the entire planet,” NASA notes.

President Joe Biden’s border chief is now ordering border guards not to presume the correct sex and corresponding pronouns for illegal migrants. “We just obtained [Customs and Border Patrol agency] documents directing personnel to only use woke language when encountering individuals invading the United States,” a tweet from the Oversight Project at the Heritage Foundation reads. The order from border chief Alejandro Mayorkas directs border guards to ignore the biological distinction between the two complementary sexes. Instead, officers must submit to the political claim that each person’s “gender” is more important than their biological sex and so must allow people to sneak across the male/female border under the disguise of “transgender” pronouns.

Anti-socialist Libertarian Party candidate Javier Milei has swept to victory in Argentina’s presidential election. Argentinians poured into the streets to celebrate the win. Populist Milei’s election opponent, Economy Minister Sergio Massa, conceded, saying, “The results are not what we expected.” If Milei breaks the typical political mold and lives up to his promises, this could be a positive thing for Argentina, which has been a socialist mess for years. No wonder Argentinians are celebrating in the streets. Western leftist media is freaking out, naturally, not only because Milei emphasizes the importance of the culture war and bashed leftism, but because he has peripherally made positive comments about Donald Trump.

The justices did not comment on their decision to leave in place state court rulings affirming Chauvin’s conviction and 22 1/2-year sentence, San Diego Union-Tribune reported. In October, attorneys representing Chauvin appealed to the Supreme Court to review his case. This appeal was based on the refusal of a Minnesota trial court to change the venue of the trial and sequester the jury.
