What a shock it truly wasn't that one of the most warped recent examples of Trump Derangement Syndrome would be heard on a cable show hosted by Al Sharpton.
Former Chicago Bulls player Craig Hodges, author of "Long Shot: The Struggles and Triumphs of an NBA Freedom Fighter," appeared on Sharpton's PoliticsNation yesterday to talk about President Trump's criticism of NFL athletes for kneeling during the national anthem to protest perceived racial injustices.
What Hodges said about the president was over the top even by the inelegant standards of MSNBC's weekend programming:
SHARPTON: "Let me show you this tweet he just recently put up encouraging people to, he put it up a few minutes ago today, telling people don't go to the game. It says (quoting from the tweet), "If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country, you will see change take place fast. Fire or suspend!"
"So is he trying to kind of front-end or interfere with those that are boycotting on behalf of (NFL quarterback/free agent Colin) Kaepernick?"
HODGES: "Well, first of all, Rev. Al, I want to thank God for giving us the opportunity to wake up this morning and speak on behalf of our people, you know, and honestly speaking when I look at where we are right now, it's beyond us getting justice in America. It's absolutely time for the Congressional Black Caucus to call for human rights violations that have occurred, past and previously, you know, and I think right now it's a civil rights issue within the context of what President Trump said the other night and as far as hampering athletes to be able to employ or get employment or gain employment."
"And, you know, when I think about his whole thing is when was Amer-, make America great again. Now we see that 1817 is more likely when he's thinking about America being great as opposed to us kneeling on behalf of righteousness and justice, he wants us to be kneeling in the cotton fields again."
Lest anyone think he wasn't serious, Hodges then accused Trump of fomenting race war --
"But it's a different day in that we who are mindful we have to stand up and battle this thing and it can't be us in a war of words, of back and forth. No, it's about making moves, like I'm talking about, go to the World Court, reach outside of the nation for help from Brazil, Russia and China, India, South Africa, the BRICS nations who've made, invest in black people, because right now it's a standard that he has set where he's trying to set up race, a basic race war, and it's ugly, man. And then to hear him just to go off on black women and women should be outraged all over the planet earth."
Oh it's ugly all right, but we've come to expect no less on MSNBC. What made Hodge's remarks even shabbier was his invocation of the Almighty just before accusing Trump of wanting to enslave tens of millions of people across America. His years in the NBA presumably enabled Hodges to make that prodigious leap from righteous to unhinged.
Hide the aspirin bottles! Cotton Triggering!
I guess he doesn’t know about machines.......................
I think there are harvesters for that stuff now. However, he’d have no problem with blacks or any other U.S. citizens doing the agricultural work that is presently done by illegal migrant workers.
MSNBC is EVIL!
They are liars.
They are deceivers.
They are dishonest.
They are perverse.
They stir up strife.
Proverbs 6:28 A perverse man spreads strife, And a slanderer separates intimate friends.
Proverbs 6:14 Who with perversity in his heart continually devises evil, Who spreads strife.
Proverbs 22:10 Drive out a scoffer, and strife will go out, and quarreling and abuse will cease.
Romans 1:28-29 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips.
21. 1 Timothy 6:3-5 .. They have an unhealthy interest in controversies and quarrels about words that result in envy, strife, malicious talk, evil suspicions and constant friction between people of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain.
More masks come off.
These people are insane.
The problem with this whole story, is that the kneeling is against vets and police. Its not about Trump. Vets and police are the people that the black football players are having a problem with. This is about our army fighting Islamic terrorists. Its about police fighting BLM. Its not about Trump. But the news would like you to think its Trump. The kneeling was going on under Obama, long before Trump sowed up as president.
On the contrary, Trump doesn’t want blacks kneeling, he wants any SOB kneeling to be fired. The left wants blacks kneeling and is weaving all sorts of bizarre yarns about why it’s a good thing to encourage more blacks to kneel.
Calling ALF. He’s the one who gets high on cotton. Was watching reruns of ALF and this was in one of the reruns.
The only problem is that the farmers don’t need workers in the cotton fields anymore because cotton is highly mechanized.
Democrats put blacks in chains
Democrats put blacks in the cotton fields
Democrats instituted Jim Crow laws
Democrats blocked civil rights laws
Democrats had a KKK leaders as their Senate Majority leaders
Another classic example of a lib off it’s meds...
Everyday, we have another example, sometimes two or three.
Hey, just an FYI: white men invented machines that work the cotton fields now.
Your black brothers no longer have to work the fields...thank a white man.
Scott Adams make a great point: President Trump owns the highest ground in this issue. He stands for America. Greatest nation on Earth and the strongest brand ever, which is why everyone wants to come here, legally or otherwise.
The NFL is acting out ways of standing, kneeling, linking arms, not linking arms, before the anthem, during the anthem, staying in the lockerroom, etc - all variations on some dramatic theme. Stunts. As he says, you almost expect them to swing into a Broadway “Rockette” dance line! What do they represent? Depends who you ask - BLM, anti-Trump, anti-America, racism, or you just came out of the tunnel when you weren’t supposed to.
A year from now, Trump will still be on the tallest hill, holding the banner of the greatest nation on earth. The NFL punks? Not so much. How long before people - even those who support them - get sick and tired of the drama?
Trump will still be President a year from now, although I wouldn’t want to give odds on how long Goodell will last.
The who? Whom does the 'Black' Caucus represent?
F these whiney racist clowns.
Will CVS put the cotton balls behind the counter in the pharmacy?
