Either Kluwe Or Priefer Is A Liar
St. Paul Pioneer Presss ^ | January 3, 2014 | Bob Sansevere

Posted on 01/03/2014 7:01:28 AM PST by Colonel_Flagg

Among the distressing things to come out of Chris Kluwe’s blistering attack on three of his former bosses is this: Somebody is a liar.

Kluwe wrote a scathing piece Thursday for Deadspin.com in which he called Vikings general manager Rick Spielman and former head coach Leslie Frazier “cowards” and skewered special teams coordinator Mike Priefer, describing him as “a bigot.”

Kluwe is convinced he lost his punting job with the Vikings because he was outspoken in his support of gay marriage, and his vitriol toward Spielman, Frazier and Priefer come from that.

He really unloaded on Priefer, saying that “if there’s one thing I hope to achieve from sharing this story, it’s to make sure that Mike Priefer never holds a coaching position again in the NFL, and ideally never coaches at any level.”

KEYWORDS: kluwe; marriage; nfl; values; vikings
And so we see the real motivation of the left. Not only does Chris Kluwe feel it's okay to slander, he wants to personally destroy anyone he feels might disagree with liberal orthodoxy.

This is what we're up against, folks.

Bob Sansevere of the Pioneer Press outlines the simple facts, and includes a statement from Viking assistant coach Mike Priefer.

My money says Kluwe is the liar.

There have been several stories addressing this that suddenly emerged late this week, and I don’t believe in coincidences.

Payback for the Phil Robertson fiasco, perhaps?

So, if the Vikings hadn’t cut him loose he wouldn’t have said anything? If so, then the “outspoken” champion of same sex marriage would have played it both ways: he does the PC thing on one hand but “goes along to get along” on the other. That doesn’t make sense. Plus, given the world of Twitter, Facebook, Email etc.... if any Vikings coach were so anti-gay as Kluwe claims it seems impossible the information wouldn’t have surfaced. Finally, punters are even more on the team fringe than place kickers. If he had superb hang time, spectacular coffin corner average and a top 10% distance average he could show up in a tutu and nobody would have given a damn.

It’s pronounced “Clue-ey”. But since he doesn’t have one, perhaps it should be changed.

That was exactly the point PiPress columnist Tom Powers made this morning in his own piece. Kluwe is a great crusader after he’s been cut.

If it is, he didn't learn anything from it. The lesson of Phil Robertson is that there are huge numbers of people in this country who have had it up to their eyeballs with liberals telling them how they HAVE to think.

I don’t know which one of them is lying, but it’s kind of hard to argue that you lost your NFL job due to the biases of one individual when noone else has hired you.

Queers are known liars. They are also vindictive drama queens. So, I know who I’ll side with on this one.

I just hope Kluwe doesn’t decide to go “Bob Crane” on them.

And, Kluwe was also cut by the Raiders. I don’t think it’s terribly difficult to figure out who’s lying here.

Kluwe who?

Last year the brouhaha was about one Ravens player might openly support same sex marriage during the superbowl.

Since Kluwe was such an outspoken activist, why wasn’t he on the radar and nobody knew about it?

There’s no doubt that this guy needs to put a sock in it (so to speak).

The gay media was evidently hyping him big style last year, and of course the Minneapolis RedStar Tribune covered his activism, but among decent people he got no traction at all.

Not to hijack my own thread, but I think somebody went Bob Crane on Bob Crane. Which was quite horrific.

Well, you get my point. Queers can get very violent when angry. This is what Bob discovered.

Ah. Now I understand your meaning.

That’s the thing about this article that I find the most disturbing. It’s not about revenge, it’s about destroying a man’s reputation and ability to find employment because he is accused — not proven guilty of, but merely accused — of holding a countercultural opinion.

If Kluwe was a Republican, liberals would be screaming about McCarthyism.

I agree...the pattern is: the homo that yells the loudest is the liar! I haven’t seen other related stories though. If this guy is in fact lying, can he be sued for slander or libel?

He was beaten with a camera tripod. The guy who was tried and acquitted of the murder didn’t have any documented record of being gay, to my knowledge, nor did Crane.

Depends on who is doing the suing and if they can pass a 'public person' test, as I understand it.

actually, the fact that the Sodomite admits that his article was specifically meant to damage someone else’s career is the definition of “malicious intent”. Yes, he can be sued.

I think that’s what it might eventually take to shut some of these people down. The “Gaystapo” needs to be stopped.

I wonder if Deadspin is also liable as the people who provided him with the platform to make his statement?

This is what I think is funny. In this article, in which other players including Pro Bowl placekicker Blair Walsh support Priefer’s account, Kluwe is asked whether HE is considering a lawsuit.

Amazing. This guy is trying to destroy someone’s life and he’s being asked if HE is the victim.

The track record on this stuff says Kluwe is a liar. The NFL loves stats; this should end the argument.

I read yesterday that Kluwe’s last stats with the Vikings were virtually identical to the punter who replaced him. What it was, was a salary dump.

The Vikings can put this whole matter to be by simply naming Priefer the new head coach.

That would be interesting. But the owners aren't man enough to do that.

That's him, Zygi Wilf, on the left with Governor Goofy, Mark Dayton, on the right, breaking ground on the billion-dollar taxpayer fleecing called the new Vikings' stadium.

I believe the veteran's minimum salary at 8 years is nearly $800K, while a rookie's is less than half of that. First and foremost, this was a salary dump.

One must admit that it took management about half a nanosecond to make the decision. lol

Not keen on Magnuson. Although Tim Pawlenty appointed him to the Minnesota Supreme Court, he was on the canvassing board that somehow managed to find a ‘win’ for Stuart Smalley over Norm Coleman.

Ex-Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe claims he was sacked for speaking out in favor of same-sex marriage and bullied by coach who told him he would ‘burn in hell with the gays’

Kluwe, who was cut from the Vikings in May, says he believes it was because he was an advocate for gay marriage
He claims coach Mike Priefer told him ‘we should round up all the gays, send them to an island, and then nuke it until it glows’

He also accuses ex-head coach Leslie Frazier and general manager Rick Spielman of being cowards for failing to stand-up to Priefer
Frazier was sacked this week and with Priefer a contender to replace him, Kluwe doesn’t think he should coach ‘at any level’

Kluwe doesn’t currently have a team and admits his revelations effectively mean his NFL career is over
In 2007 he had signed an $8.3-million contract extension through 2013 with the Vikings

So - someone can be fired for saying homosexuality is a sin but can't be fired for speaking in favor of it?

I guess free speech only works in one direction?

Don't mean to pick on you, but I'm sick and tired of reading that Franken somehow stole the election from Coleman. Not at all what happened. Coleman lost the election in 2 ways - (1) ineligible voters who voted; and (2) Minnesota Supreme decision, which ultimately allowed Coleman's legal team to get outmaneuvered by Franken's.

First is self-explanatory. The second, the Court rules that for the contested ballots, instead of having them formally reviewed, as the statute explicitly requires, they said that Coleman and Franken could review said ballots, and if they agreed they could be counted, they would. Franken's team knew which counties/districts were heavy for them, so they pushed for ballots from these areas to be counted. Coleman's team inexplicably had no clue where their voters are (inside baseball - they didn't see the value in building a good enough database). Consequently when there were disputed ballots in Coleman-leaning areas, Franken's people smartly objected.

Coleman's legal team were idiots and never should have agreed to do this. That's what cost Coleman the election during the recount.
