Black lives matter protest Football kneelers Intelwars Mike Ditka Mike ditka vs nfl kneelers National Anthem National anthem kneeling National Anthem Protest

NFL icon Mike Ditka says players who kneel should respect the country or ‘get the hell out!’

Legendary former NFL coach Mike Ditka criticized the current pro football players who kneeled to protest during the national anthem and said that he couldn’t understand why anyone would protest.

Ditka, a former Chicago Bears player-coach and Hall of Famer, made the comments during an interview with Newsmax TV.

“Football’s football. It’s not a complicated thing. You’re playing the game, you’re enjoying the game,” Ditka said.

“You don’t like the game, get out of it. It’s not for protesting one way or the other. What color you are, what you think, this or that. You play football. That’s it,” he continued.

“You’re privileged. You got a gift from God that you can play the game because you got a body you can do it with,” Ditka said. “I don’t really understand what you’re protesting. I played the game. I coached the game for a long time. It makes no sense to me.”

Ditka, 80, went on to say that players were disrespecting the United States with the protest and that they should leave the country instead of criticizing it.

“I would tell those players go to another country and play football there. You don’t have to come out,” Ditka said. “You don’t have to come out if you go to another country. You can’t! Because the game’s only played in this country. And if you can’t respect this country, get the hell out of it.”

‘There has been no oppression’

Ditka has previously made similar comments about those players who joined the kneeling protests. In a particularly controversial incident in 2017, he was criticized heavily for saying he didn’t think there had been any oppression in the last 100 years.

“All of a sudden, it has become a big deal now — about oppression,” Ditka said at the time. “There has been no oppression in the last hundred years that I know of. Now maybe I’m not watching it as carefully as other people.”

He later clarified his comments and claimed that the media was intentionally misleading the public about what he said he meant.

“The characterization of the statement that I made does not reflect the context of the question that I was answering and certainly does not reflect my views throughout my lifetime,” said Ditka. “I have absolutely seen oppression in society in the last 100 years and I am completely intolerant of any discrimination. The interview was about the NFL and the related issues. That’s where my head was at.”

Black babies Black Lives Matter Black lives matter protest Carmelo anthony Intelwars Police killing blacks Tiffany haddish Tiffany haddish babies

Tiffany Haddish says she won’t have children out of fear police will hunt them down or kill them

Actress and comedian Tiffany Haddish said that she has
avoided having children because she’s afraid the police will hunt them down and kill them.

Haddish became emotional when discussing her reasoning in an interview with Carmelo Anthony on
his YouTube show, “What’s In Your Glass?” Haddish was explaining why she joined a Black Lives Matter protest when she made the comments about avoiding children.

“I’m a little older now and people are always like, “You gonna have some babies? When are you gonna have some babies? You gonna drop some babies?'” she said.

“There’s a part of me that would like to do that, and I always make up these excuses like, ‘Oh, I need a million dollars in the bank before I do that, I need this, I need that,'” she explained.

“But really, it’s like, I would hate to give birth to someone that looks like me, and then, knowing that they’re gonna be hunted or killed,” she added.

“Like, why would I put someone through that?” Haddish asked.

“And white people don’t have to think about that. It’s time to talk about that, and how we have to come together as a community and work as a unit and maybe we don’t all agree on the same things, but we need to just find some common ground and move forward as human beings not as like, you know,” she said.

“We’re all trying to figure out, how do you fix this? How do you stop this? And all I can think is we have to figure out how to change people’s hearts, and that’s what I’ve been trying to do my whole career,” she added.

Haddish said also that she knew two black people in her life who were killed by police, and said that it led to the feeling that blacks were being hunted and killed by law enforcement.

Aurora shooting Austin Austin shooting Black lives matter protest Black lives matter shooting Blm protest Intelwars Shooting

Man shot dead at Black Lives Matter protest in Austin, suspect detained and cooperating with police

One person was shot dead on Saturday night during a Black Lives Matter protest in Austin, Texas. The shooting happened at approximately 9:52 p.m. local time when a person in a car shot the victim on Congress Avenue.

“One adult male victim was located with a gunshot wound,” said senior Austin police officer Katrina Ratcliff. Medics performed CPR on the victim at the shooting scene. He was taken to the Dell Seton Medical Center with “critical, life-threatening injuries” and was “pronounced ‘deceased’ shortly” after arriving.

“Initial reports indicate the victim may have been carrying a rifle and approached suspect’s vehicle,” the police spokesperson said. “The suspect was in the vehicle and shot at the vehicle.”

Police are investigating the incident as a homicide. The suspected shooter has been detained and is cooperating with the police. The identities of the victim and suspect have not been released.

Videos from the scene show a car turn into an intersection where Black Lives Matter protesters were marching. The vehicle allegedly hit an orange barrier in the road and then came to a stop, according to witness Michael Capochiano.

“There were people around the car, yelling, and people sounding like they were frightened,” Capochiano told the Austin American-Statesman. The witness added that the protester with a rifle approached the car, and the driver pointed a gun outside the window of the vehicle. At least five shots were fired, and the driver sped off.

There was also a shooting at a protest in Colorado on Saturday evening. Protesters blocked traffic on Interstate 225 in Aurora for a demonstration demanding justice for Elijah McClain, who died last year after being arrested by Aurora police officers, who reportedly used a chokehold on the 23-year-old.

“People were running after a car ‘aggressively’ made its way toward protestors on I-225. I heard pops, which APD say came from a protestor, That protestor shot other protestors,” KCNC-TV reporter Dillon Thomas said. “I watched as a woman who fell off the interstate was rushed to the hospital.”

“While the protestors were walking on I-225, a vehicle decided to drive through the crowd,” the Aurora Police Department stated. “A protestor decided to fire off a weapon, striking at least 1 other protestor. They were transported to the hospital in stable condition.”

“Someone else showed up to the hospital with a graze wound,” the APD tweeted. “The vehicle was towed and we are investigating that incident. Any witnesses to the shooting are urged to call @CrimeStoppersCO.”

There was another shooting at a Breonna Taylor protest in Louisville, Ky. Three people were shot on Saturday after an armed protester accidentally discharged a firearm and shot fellow members of the militia group that were in Louisville.

Black Lives Matter Black lives matter protest Cancel culture Intelwars Sonya holt Tennessee viral videos White People

Woman loses job over viral video of her yelling, ‘white lives are better’ at Black Lives Matter protesters

A woman regrets yelling “white lives are better” at a group of Black Lives Matter protesters after the video of her comments went viral and she lost her job over it.

The incident happened at a protest in Elizabethton in Tennessee.

In another part of the video, she yells at a protester, “You’re a gay homosexual piece of crap who’s going to burn in hell.”

A man standing next to her says in the video, “We should have kept you (expletive) slaves, that’s what we should’ve done.”

The video was recorded by Sierra Gilmer, a teenager who told WJHL-TV she was simply recording reactions from people in the crowd when she happened upon Sonya Holt.

“I was live streaming on the Instagram on Johnson City BLM and just happened to get that on video. It was crazy. We kind of knew what to expect going into it,” said Gilmer.

“She started screaming everything that she did and telling me that, I’m just a poor little black girl with a messed up mind that, we should have been kept as slaves and all these things,” Gilmer said of Holt.

Keith Family Vision Clinic told WCYB-TV that Holt was fired from her job after the video went viral.

Holt apologizes

In an interview with WJHL-TV, Holt said she regretted her comments.

“I would like to apologize to the little girl. I did not know that she was a minor. If I had known she was a minor, I would have never spoken to her,” Holt said.

She confirmed that she lost her job over the video.

“I no longer have a job. I don’t have any animosity towards the doctors I worked for. They’re great people. Of course, I didn’t want their business to suffer because of mistakes that I made and I have great respect for them. They did what they had to do to protect their business,” Holt said.

Here’s the video of the heated interaction:
