Wow. Little did we know that enjoying being a spectator and watching an NFL football game is akin to watching slaves battle to the death in a Roman coliseum or bought slaves turned Gladiators forced to fight for their lives against a lion…according to Colin Kaepernick. In his Netflix special, Colin Kaepernick suggests the NFL training camp is synonymous with literally buying slaves. Unreal” tweeted one user.
The famous “woke” football player who has been publicly controversial and started the kneeling phenomenon during the national anthem at games comes out with even more outrageous statements in a new Netflix special.
Kaepernick was “sacked after likening the NFL combine to slavery in the latest example of how reliant the modern left has become on the emotional impact of a practice that hasn’t existed in America since the Civil War era,” writes BizPacReview. “In a new Netflix special, the surly malcontent who became a celebrated figure to the ‘woke’ media…trivializes the suffering of generations of blacks who were horrifically subjugated with his ridiculous comparison.”
“Kaepernick spent half a decade crying that NFL teams wouldn’t give him a shot and now he’s decided that actually being an NFL player is like being a slave. This dude is the most obvious and shameless con artist in modern American history” tweeted Matt Walsh about the special.
The statement is said during a segment from the series “Colin in Black & White” “Kaepernick delivers his message as narrator while the actors portraying players morph into chained captives at an actual slave auction, an assertion so over the top that it borders on parody” adds BizPacReview.
“What they don’t want you to understand is what’s being established is a power dynamic,” says Kaepernick. “Before they put you on the field, teams poke, prod, and examine you searching for any defect that might affect your performance. No boundary is respected. No dignity left intact” he adds.
Media host Clay Travis tweeted, “Colin Kaepernick compares the NFL combine, which allows all players of all races a voluntary chance to become multi-millionaires, to slavery. Anyone still defending this imbecile lacks a functional brain.”
Bank of America Senior Execs Tell Young Staffers to ‘Dress Down’ as Amidst NYC Crime Surge
Although the leftwing media and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are in denial about the increasing wave of crime sprees in liberal cities, a recent message Bank of America executives sent to its staffers proves otherwise.
“Amid a surge in some New York City violent crimes, Wall Street bigwigs continue to encourage younger staffers to come into the office – but to do so with caution” reports The New York Post.
One specific example comes from Bank of America. Senior executives were reportedly so concerned about their employees, they felt compelled to encourage younger employees to “dress down” to attract less attention.
The Bank of America employees make their way to Bryant Park each day, a midtown Manhattan location that is not considered to be in a dangerous part of New York in the slightest; in fact, it is quite the opposite.
The executives “have told their staffers that dressing up, or wearing anything with a Bank of America logo, could make them a target” added the Post. One bank employee told On The Money he has been on high alert after he spotted an individual with a knife near his office.
As recently as November 28, the city had reported a 15 percent increase in felony assaults in only the previous 28 days compared to a year earlier. Murder rates have also increased 42 percent over the past two years.
An executive at another money management firm said they recently began carrying a Taser on his commute to his midtown office. Some companies such as Citibank offer employees private shuttles in order to avoid public transportation, and commuting in the dark; particularly after daylight-saving time ended last month.
Wall Street sources say they are having the same troubles as the midtown area. “Some people I work with have been accosted…I’d say it’s becoming frequent, if not common…there’s probably a dozen incidents that I saw, or have been involved in” said the source.
New York City Opens First Two Government-Sanctioned Drug Injection Sites in U.S.
Drug overdoses and addiction have hit an all-time high during the pandemic, with the Centers for Disease Control revealing over 93,000 people died from overdoses in 2020, up 30 percent from 2019. As a solution to the crisis, New York City is opening the nation’s first government-sanctioned drug injection sites.
Two injection sites will be opened in Manhattan on Tuesday, giving drug users a controlled environment, as well as offer treatment options. Visitors must bring their own drugs, and the sites will offer clean injection supplies including needles.
The sites will also have naloxone on-site, the emergency drug that reverses narcotics overdoses. Drug addicts know public libraries have naloxone on hand in case of someone overdosing, which has made libraries one of the most popular public places for drug use across the country.
Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio implemented the sites before he leaves office. In a written statement, de Blasio said this unique strategy to combat the drug crisis will prove that “after decades of failure, a smarter approach is possible.” The mayor says he has notified the sites that he would not penalize them or “take enforcement action” and that law enforcement has been told to stand down as well.
New York City health commission Dr. Dave A. Chokshi supports the measures, telling the New York Times “2020, unfortunately, was the deadliest year on record for overdoses both here in New York City as well as nationally. Every four hours, someone dies of a drug overdose in New York City…we feel a deep conviction and also a sense of urgency in opening overdose prevention centers.”
Opponents of government-sanctioned injection sites worry the facilities legitimize, destigmatize and therefore support or encourage drug addiction, rather than sending a message that everything must be done to stop drug use. “While cities like San Francisco and Seattle, both ravaged by substance abuse, have considered opening injection locations, New York City is the first to formally authorize such sites” reports National Review.
