Rihanna has declined to perform at the Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show in support of Colin Kaepernick, according to a report out Thursday.

The 30-year-old "Umbrella" singer disagrees with the NFL's stance on kneeling during the national anthem, according to Us Weekly, and has decided to skip a performance opportunity at the February 2019 game.

Kaepernick social media posts laud Black Lives Matter, Black Panthers,...

August 30, 2016
FoxNews.com

'History!' Kaepernick wrote on Instagram Oct. 15 [2015], when he marked 50 years since the Black Panther Party was founded.

Kaepernick has posted 170 photos or videos on his Instagram account in the four years since he created it. Most of his first 128 posts were pics of him in football gear, publicity photos or shots taken with friends.

But 31 of his last 42 posts have strong social justice connotations, often featuring quotes from radical Nation of Islam leader [communist] Malcolm X, Black Panthers founder Huey Newton and cop killer Assata Shakur [aka, communist-revolutionary JoAnne Chesimard]

During a Sunday news conference about the flag flap, Kaepernick dressed in a black hat with a large, white “X” and a T-shirt that featured photos of Cuban despot Fidel Castro and Malcolm X.”

“With the 49ers visiting the Dolphins this week, San Francisco’s Colin Kaepernick engaged in a conference call with members of the South Florida media. However, one reporter wanted to discuss something that happened in August, when Kaepernick wore a shirt that appeared to show support for Fidel Castro, which led to a tense exchange.

The shirt depicted scenes from a 1960 meeting between Castro and Malcolm X, and it bore the phrase, “Like minds think alike.” Kaepernick wore it to a news conference after the 49ers’ third preseason game, which was when his refusal to stand during the national anthem became a major national story.”

"Huey Percy Newton (February 17, 1942 – August 22, 1989) was an African-American political activist and revolutionary who, along with Bobby Seale, co-founded the Black Panther Party in 1966. He continued to pursue an education, eventually earning a Ph.D. in social philosophy.[1][2] In 1989 he was shot and killed in Oakland, California. ..."

"As a student at Merritt College in Oakland, Newton became involved in politics in the Bay Area. He joined the Afro-American Association (AAA), became a prominent member of Phi Beta Sigma fraternity, Beta Tau chapter; and played a role in getting the first African-American history course adopted as part of the college's curriculum.

He read the works of Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, Frantz Fanon, Malcolm X, Mao Zedong, Émile Durkheim, and Che Guevara.

During his time at Merritt College, he met Bobby Seale, and the two organized the Black Panther Party for Self Defense in October 1966.[3]"

Meet the [35] Police Officers Murdered by the Black Panthers [and BP offshoot Black Liberation Army]

The Professional Gunfighter
Posted in: News, Politics, Terrorism

Below are the names and photos of 35 Police Officers who were murdered by the Black Panthers and the subsequent Black Liberation Army in the 60s, 70s and 80s [click link for list and details].

The Black Liberation Army was an organization that grew out of the Black Panther Party, composed of former Black Panther Party members, operating from about 1971-1980. Another two police officers on the list were murdered by the Weather Underground, a domestic terrorist group with ties to the Black Liberation Army.

Despite this readily available information, today the internet was full of articles criticizing those who were upset by Beyonce’s Super Bowl Halftime performance, and questioning how anyone could be upset over a woman “affirming her blackness.” Their analysis couldn’t have been more off.

We have no issues with someone “affirming their blackness” or any other identity they want to affirm. We do take issue when people pay homage to a group that used terrorism and violence to promote racism and revolutionary socialism – a group that murdered dozens of police officers in cold blood.

As you scroll through the list of officers below, look at their photos and read their stories. Among these officers are black men and white men. Rookies and veterans from across the country. Most were killed in unprovoked attacks and ambushes. They all left behind families….

Perhaps Beyonce, someone from the NFL, and someone representing CBS, could read through this list and tell us if they still stand by their decision to honor the Black Panthers during the Super Bowl. Then perhaps they could explain their answers to the surviving wives and children of these fallen officers. ...”

This is not even about politics for me. It’s the trend of sub-par performances and emphasis on teeny bopper pop stars for the halftime show. Even Coldplay involved Beyonce and Bruno Mars...and I say this as a ‘millenial.’

Why can’t there be a Fleetwood Mac reunion or something?

Backlash after Colin Kaepernick named face of Nike ad

FoxNews.com ^ | Sept 4, 2018 | Ryan Gaydos

Nike’s announcement Monday it would make Colin Kaepernick the face of its “Just Do It” campaign sparked a firestorm on social media -- and literal fires, too.

Some social media users took to Twitter to showcase their frustrations. Videos and photos showed fans completely destroying their Nike-branded apparel, with some going as far as letting the gear go up in flames.

“First the @NFL forces me to choose between my favorite sport and my country,” Twitter user Sean Clancy wrote. “I chose country. Then @Nike forces me to choose between my favorite shoes and my country.

Since when did the American Flag and the National Anthem become offensive?”

snopes.com ^ | 10/16/18 | Snopes

Did Colin Kaepernick Donate $25,000 to a Group Honoring Assata Shakur?

The group is named after the Black Liberation Army member who was convicted in the murder of a state trooper and fled to Cuba.

Colin Kaepernick made a $25,000 donation to an activist group named after Assata Shakur, who was convicted in the murder of a police officer.

TRUE!

Assata Shakur (aka Joanne Chesimard)

In 1971 Shakur joined the Republic of New Afrika, a radical organization that called for the creation of an independent black republic in the “subjugated lands” of South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana.

Around this same time, Shakur, a proud and committed Marxist, moved to Oakland, California, where she joined the local branch of the Black Panther Party (BPP). Soon thereafter, she returned to New York and became a leading member of BPP’s Harlem chapter.

Also in the early 1970s Shakur joined a BPP offshoot known as the Black Liberation Army (BLA), a violent group that was tied to the murders of more than ten police officers nationwide between 1970-73. As Jordan Schachtel writes in Conservative Review, BLA was “a splinter group comprised of the most radical members of the Black Panthers,” and Shakur herself “was the leader of a notorious New York City BLA cell that hunted down police officers for brutal assassinations.” According to former Assistant FBI Director John Miller, Shakur was “the soul of the Black Liberation Army.”

Because of her involvement with BPP and BLA, Shakur became a target of the FBI’s Counterintelligence Program (COINTELPRO) and thus went into hiding in the early ’70s. While underground, she was placed on the FBI’s Most Wanted List because of her involvement in three bank robberies, the kidnapping and murder of two drug dealers, and the attempted murder of two policemen.

At about 12:45 a.m. on the morning of May 2, 1973, the fugitive Shakur was being driven to a new hideout in Philadelphia by BPP Information Minister Zayd Malik Shakur (Assata’s brother-in-law) and BLA member Sundiata Acoli, when their car was pulled over by state trooper Jaibes Harper for a tail-light violation on the New Jersey Turnpike. Fellow trooper Werner Foerster provided backup for Harper. While the lawmen conducted routine questioning of the vehicle’s occupants, Shakur (who was in the front passenger’s seat) and her companions suddenly fired upon them with semi-automatic pistols.

As Foerster grappled with the driver, Shakur shot the trooper twice before her gun apparently jammed. With Foerster on the ground wounded and helpless, Shakur grabbed the trooper’s own firearm and blasted two fatal shots into his head, execution-style. (Zayd Malik Shakur was also killed in the melee.)

Assata Shakur fled the scene but was apprehended by police a short time later, about five miles away. Over the ensuing four years, she was indicted ten times, resulting in seven criminal trials for offenses that included two bank robberies, one kidnapping, two attempted murders, and the Turnpike shootout. Of these trials, three resulted in acquittals, one in a hung jury, one in a change of venue, one in a mistrial, and one—the Turnpike incident—in a conviction. In that latter case, Shakur was found guilty of first-degree murder and seven additional felonies, resulting in a prison sentence of life plus 33 years.

Shakur escaped from prison on November 2, 1979—probably with the help of Cuban or Cuban-trained terrorists posing as visitors. As New Jersey State Police Lieutenant Mike Rinaldi explained in 2013: “Armed domestic terrorists gained entry into the facility, neutralized the guards, broke her free, and turned her over to a nearby getaway team.” The escape was masterminded by Shakur’s brother, BLA member Jeral Wayne Williams (a.k.a. Mutulu Shakur).

After her prison breakout, Assata Shakur lived underground in the U.S. until 1984, at which time some accomplices smuggled her to Mexico. From there, her allies used a network of Cuban intelligence officers who collaborated with American radical groups calling themselves “The Collective,” to transport Shakur to Fidel Castro‘s Cuba, which granted political asylum to the fugitive in order to embarrass the Reagan Administration. As Cuban-American author Humberto Fontova wrote in 2013: “To this day from her safe haven in Cuba [Shakur] has been given a pulpit (by Castro) to preach and profess, stirring supporters and groups to mobilize against the United States by any means necessary. She has been used by the Castro regime to greet foreign delegations visiting Cuba.”

In May 2013 the FBI announced a $1 million reward for “information leading to the apprehension” of Shakur, whom the Bureau designated as a “Most Wanted Terrorist.” The New Jersey State Police also wanted to gain custody of Shakur and added another $1 million to the pot. In response to these initiatives, Shakur in 2013 launched a propaganda offensive claiming that she was innocent of the many charges which had been levied against her, and that her trial had been nothing more than a legal lynching perpetrated by an all-white jury.

Over the years, Shakur has become a folk hero to radical leftists. They view her, as one fawning San Francisco Chronicle article put it, as “a victim and ally who gives voice to their pain.” Most notably, Shakur is the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement’s most revered icon. She is also the icon of Assata’s Daughters, a radical group that grew out of BLM.

Shakur’s 1987 book, Assata: An Autobiography, has been cited as an illustration of the principles that underlie critical legal studies and critical race theory. In 1993 Shakur published a second book, Still Black, Still Strong, with Mumia Abu-Jamal and BLA co-founder Dhoruba bin Wahad.

The late rapper Tupac Shakur, who was killed in a drive-by shooting in 1996, was Assata Shakur’s nephew.

Well, Lindsey Buckingham IS in the middle of suing them, for starters, LOL!

Now? During half-time, if I’m even WATCHING, I have to pee.
