Kneel for Injustice. Kneel for Equality.

Sedition can take many forms and though the most forthright acts of treason are comprised of armed attacks like terror bombings (see Bill Ayers) there are other, more subtle, forms which act as psychological, rather than a physical, explosion. And so, when the UVA men's hoops team released a group photo of themselves kneeling for injustice and equality the other day I felt the full force of their psychic blast peal the skin from my face and felt the searing heat melt my eyeballs onto my charred skull which soon flaked away to expose my pulsating brain that throbbed in modulating rhythm with the LCD until it too exploded into a bazillion tiny atoms of mist. Direct hit - Wrong place, wrong time, wrong universe. How did we get here? Is it really all just Colin Kaepernick's fault? I say NO, the problem runs much deeper than the athletes who, foolish though they might be, are just acting out.
London Perrantes is a fantastic point guard on the court, and I'm asuming he's got some smarts to attend UVA (even on an athletic scholarship) but I think what he's trying to say here is "kneel for justice" NOT injustice. So it's a typo - no big deal - unless he is actually kneeling for injustice which would be a bold statement and require a completely different commentary on the KOTCB blog. But my problem with this effort has little to do with justice/injustice or equality (I would point out that justice and equality are not complimentary ideals and one could say that conceptually they work against each other) but it is the act of kneeling that gets my goat. The conflation of kneeling (an act of submission) with an act of protest is simply ignorant and un-American - especially when it comes to the national anthem. I hate watching these athletes kneel not because I think they don't have any reason to complain - who doesn't (that's what this blog is all about) - but because it demonstrates weakness and subservience to the state. It's worse than the "hands up, don't shoot" surrender that so many SJW's were pantomiming after Fergusson. It's seditious in its complete rejection of Americas founding ideal that requires - demands - participation in the political economy and civic ecosystem. It is a gesture that fundamentally transforms the nobel citizen into a groveling subject. When it comes to protest, I've got a very different idea about what TRUE protest looks like:


In your face American pussies - Angelo Graham from the great state of Tennessee will show you what a true protest looks like. When I see the UVA Basketball team dressed in ape suites wearing All Lives Matter tee shirts STANDING TALL I'll know the ship of state has been righted and is sailing forward to a beautiful future.

It's better to die on your feet than to live on your knees

No Step On Snek

On The 2020 Election: In an elemental way We the People of the United States lost because Trump, and the MAGA movement he champions, forced the Deep State/Administrative State/New World Order (whatever you want to call it) and its enablers in Corporate America - Finance/FakeNews/Big Tech - to declare their sovereignty and steal our election in the most obvious way possible. The brazenness and " in yo face " shamelessness of the crime is a big part of its effectiveness and loudly proclaims an intent to demoralize and defeat the America First ideology which actually won the highest number of votes in this nation's history. It wasn't even close and that was made clear when key cities in 5 or 6 swing states declared they would pause (stop) counting(?!) votes until all the rural districts had submitted results allowing the big city machines to manufacture the ballots required to put Jo(((k)))e Biden in the lead. NPC's and Normies don't get too critical of process a

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view

@POTUS hasn’t Tweeted

What happened to the 11,000 tweets? Twitter has conducted a "purge" of "conservative" voices from its "platform" and that includes the account of one Donald J Trump who happens to be the President of the United States of America. To which I say GOOD! Let's take it from the top. A purge (the bad kind) does not include getting kicked off a social network. If that's such a bad thing then the problem is with the society and not the network. Purges are when police officers bust down your door at 3AM, grab you and drive out to some empty field where they shoot you in the head and then tossed your limp body in a mass grave. A conservative is someone like Mitt Romney or these tools at the Lincoln Project who are free to post whatever lies or inflammatory rhetoric they want on Twitter. Twitter has no hatred for “conservatives” or Republicans as far as that goes and I don't think a single member of Congress or the political establishment has been "p
