Weekend Of Fights Shows That NFL Brutes Belong Behind Bars, Not On Pedestals

This past weekend, NFL players – who alongside Hollywood stars that regularly get on their knees for acting roles function as our collective moral compass nowadays – across the country were involved in a series of grizzly brawls adding further embarrassment and shame to the beleaguered organization with its ratings already in the toilet. Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver AJ Green savagely attacked Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey, choking him and pummeling him brutally for no particular reason. Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Flynn leveled New Orleans Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore, again, for no good reason. In both situations, the… Keep Reading

The Absolute Absurdity Of The #TakeAKnee Debate

Of all the headlines taking control of the papers and social media, entertainers bending their knees appears to be at the top of the list. National Football League free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick made headlines last year repeatedly for refusing to stand during the National Anthem, a move he said was protesting racial inequality across the country. In the time since, other players have jumped on board, and it’s even spreading to other sports. Liberals celebrate such an apparently courageous stand, and opponents are triggered by knees being bent during a song. Both sides are deeply passionate about the topic… Keep Reading
