BREAKING! Racist NBA Teams Just Denounced U.S. And Made SICK Demand On White Fans!

What in the world is this? The whole national anthem controversy has now taken a turn for the ridiculous.

Since there seems to be a huge issue with standing for our country’s national anthem for colored athletes these days. As part of “Black History Month” during the month of February, a handful of NBA basketball teams decided to play an anthem, but it wasn’t the familiar “Star Spangled Banner.” Instead, they decided to play the “Negro national anthem” by African-American singers approved by the NAACP.

Lift Every Voice and Sing
By James Weldon Johnson

Lift every voice and sing
Till earth and heaven ring,
Ring with the harmonies of Liberty;
Let our rejoicing rise
High as the listening skies,
Let it resound loud as the rolling sea.
Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us,
Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us,
Facing the rising sun of our new day begun
Let us march on till victory is won.

Stony the road we trod,
Bitter the chastening rod,
Felt in the days when hope unborn had died;
Yet with a steady beat,
Have not our weary feet
Come to the place for which our fathers sighed?
We have come over a way that with tears has been watered,
We have come, treading our path through the blood of the slaughtered,
Out from the gloomy past,
Till now we stand at last
Where the white gleam of our bright star is cast.

God of our weary years,
God of our silent tears,
Thou who has brought us thus far on the way;
Thou who has by Thy might Led us into the light,
Keep us forever in the path, we pray.
Lest our feet stray from the places, our God, where we met Thee,
Lest, our hearts drunk with the wine of the world, we forget Thee;
Shadowed beneath Thy hand,
May we forever stand.
True to our God,
True to our native land.

The new anthem they played was called “Lift Every Voice and Sing.” Which was originally a rallying call for black Americans after the Civil War. Although it was originally written to honor President Abraham Lincoln and the fact that he freed the slave. But it never really caught on.

James Weldon Johnson, who was a popular author, civil rights activist and educator at the time was the one who wrote the lyrics.

What is going on here? Why are African Americans all of a sudden getting their own “national anthem?” Is the lunacy of liberalism so deeply ingrained in our society that people actually think this is an ok thing? And doesn’t an anthem for just black America also alienate all other cultures who are a part of American society?

Wouldn’t it be a better idea if we all stop listening and idolizing people who can barely read and write while we make them multimillionaires as they spew their fake social justice agenda on us? These people get millions per year to just toss around a ball. What exactly qualifies them to be political activists who understand the struggle of the average African American person in America?

Maybe it’s time the African American community start taking a close look at themselves and start to understand they are being played by people like this in order to further divide and conquer. So people like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson can continue to get rich and the Democrat Party can continue to get elected.

“Lift Every Voice and Sing” was publicly performed first as a poem as part of a celebration of Abraham Lincoln’s birthday on February 12, 1900, by 500 school children at the segregated Stanton School in Jacksonville, Florida. Its principal, James Weldon Johnson, wrote the words to introduce its honored guest Booker T. Washington. The poem was set to music in 1905 by Johnson’s brother John. In 1919, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) dubbed it “The Negro National Anthem”[2] for its power in voicing the cry for liberation and affirmation for African-American people.

In 1939, Augusta Savage received a commission from the New York World’s Fair and created a 16-foot (5 m) plaster sculpture called Lift Every Voice and Sing which was destroyed by bulldozers at the close of the fair.

In Maya Angelou’s 1969 autobiography, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, the song is sung by the audience and students at Maya’s eighth grade graduation, after a white school official dashes the educational aspirations of her class.

In 1990, singer Melba Moore released a modern rendition of the song, which she recorded along with others including R&B artists Stephanie Mills, Freddie Jackson, Anita Baker, Dionne Warwick, Bobby Brown, Stevie Wonder, Jeffrey Osborne, and Howard Hewett; and gospel artists BeBe & CeCe Winans, Take 6, and The Clark Sisters, after which, “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing” was entered into the Congressional Record by Del. Walter Fauntroy (D-DC).

In 2008, jazz singer Rene Marie was asked to perform the national anthem at a civic event in Denver, Colorado, where she caused a controversy by substituting the words of “Lift Every Voice and Sing” into the song. This arrangement of the words of “Lift Every Voice and Sing” with the melody of “The Star Spangled Banner” became part of the titular suite on her 2011 CD release, “The Voice of My Beautiful Country”.

On January 20, 2009, the Rev. Joseph Lowery, who was formerly president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, used a near-verbatim recitation of the song’s third stanza to begin his benediction at the inauguration ceremony for President Barack Obama.

On September 24, 2016, this song was sung by mezzo-soprano Denyce Graves and chorus at the conclusion of the opening ceremonies of the National Museum of African American History and Culture, at which Obama delivered the keynote address.

On October 19, 2017, when white nationalist leader Richard Spencer spoke at the University of Florida, the university’s carillon played “Lift Every Voice and Sing” to convey a message of unity.”

‘Witch Hunt’: ANOTHER Dem Donor Joins Mueller’s Russia-Probe Team – Adds Fmr HuffPo Contributor

An attorney on special counsel Robert Mueller’s team was a writer for HuffPost, The Daily Caller News Foundation has found.

Aaron Zelinsky, a self-described Democrat, wrote nearly 50 articles as a contributor for the liberal news outlet from 2009 to 2014.

“I’m a Democrat,” he wrote in November 2012.

A review of his articles shows that he supported President Barack Obama’s efforts to close Guantanamo Bay, opposed President George W. Bush’s policy on torture, wrote in defense of gun control and argued for government-imposed limits on how much corporate executives can earn.

“Now is the time to begin enacting a progressive political agenda through the ballot box,” he wrote in a 2009 article on gay marriage.

Zelinsky, 34, has been writing political commentary since at least his undergraduate years at Yale University. As a member of the university debate team, he took a special interest in writing about presidential debates.

Zelinsky expressed support for Democratic candidate John Kerry before a 2004 general election debate. “From one Yale debater to another: Good luck, senator. I’m rooting for you,” he wrote in The Hartford Courant.

And he had encouraging words for Obama, wishing him good luck before a 2012 debate against Republican challenger Mitt Romney. “Stay relaxed up there,” Zelinsky wrote in a column. “You did the debate thing in 2008; it’s a piece of cake. No sweat.”

The Mueller investigation faced accusations of political bias after it was revealed that an FBI lawyer on the team had sent a colleague dozens of anti-Trump text messages.

In addition, Federal Elections Commission records, which only list contributions made at the federal level, show that nine of the 16 publicly-disclosed lawyers on the Mueller team have donated to Democratic candidates.

President Donald Trump has called the Russia investigation a political “witch hunt.”

Zelinsky, who joined the Russia probe in June 2017, is not among the nine attorneys to have made federal donations. But state records reveal a $100 donation he made to a Democratic committee in his home state of Connecticut in 2014, a couple months before he joined the Justice Department as a prosecutor.

He made another donation in 2016 – $100 to a local Democratic lawmaker.

Harold Koh, who worked for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as a senior legal adviser, has called Zelinsky a “fair-minded young prosecutor.”

“He is a professional, non-partisan straight shooter, who worked for Democrats at the State Department,” Koh told The New Haven Independent in June, “but has probably spent more years working for Republicans” like Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy and Circuit Court Judge Thomas Griffith.

When Zelinsky started a blog on presidential debates in 2008, he told Yale News that he aspired for it to be non-partisan. “That is the most important feature of the blog,” he said. “Unlike a lot of television programs where we see talking heads plugging the candidates of the party with which they are affiliated, we work really hard to maintain objectivity.”

The blog is no longer available online, but his articles on HuffPost are overtly partisan and offer advice almost exclusively to Democrats.

After Democrats lost a special election in 2010, Zelinsky advised the party to keep calm and run strong candidates. “In November, every Democratic candidate must campaign hard,” he wrote. “The Democrats need candidates who want to run, not just those who want to win.”

And a common theme is his insistence that Democrats be more aggressive. “The Democrats are like the car-enthusiast who spends all of his time working on his sports coup without ever taking it for a spin,” Zelinsky wrote. “No one cares how fast you can go from zero to sixty if you never leave the driveway.”

He advised Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in 2010 to play “hardball” with Republicans and use the threat of taking away the filibuster, known as the “nuclear option,” as a bargaining chip.

And he encouraged Obama to emulate the strong-arm tactics of former President Lyndon Johnson. “He wasn’t afraid to get down and dirty with the legislative branch, arm twisting, cajoling, and sometimes bullying senators to vote his way,” Zelinsky said of Johnson.

His articles also convey a certain pragmatism about politics, encouraging Democrats to reach across the aisle to find Republicans who could help advance a Democratic agenda. “There are Republicans the Democrats can, and should, work with,” Zelinsky wrote.

He only wrote one article on HuffPost giving advice to Republicans: stop “trying to deprive people of their basic human rights.”

“If you want to stay relevant, at least stop obsessively fighting marriage equality,” he wrote about gay marriage in 2012. “I’m not asking you to start supporting this basic human right, but maybe at least stop actively opposing it.”

The special counsel’s office declined to comment for this article beyond emphasizing that DOJ guidelines prohibit the use of political affiliation or ideology in making hiring decisions.


Patriots QB Just Pissed Off His Entire Team With What He Did Before Game While Players Were Protesting

Just days after NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell stated that he would prefer NFL players to stand during the national anthem, many players continued their sick protest during week 7. The entire New Orleans Saints team knelt in unison before the anthem started while Green Bay Packers players stood arm in arm while the ‘Star Spangled Banner’ played. In another game, three Miami Dolphin players stayed in their locker room while the anthem was sung, and in a different matchup across the country, Los Angeles Chargers offensive tackle Russell Okung reportedly raised his fist in the air as the anthem played.

Though while there are plenty of reports of these NFL players disrespecting our nation’s heroes, there are some players that won’t be apart of this nasty protest. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is one of them and what he was caught doing yesterday before the game has angered all the race-baiting players who protested that day.

The NFL protests have been going on for over a year now, and there seems to be no end in sight. These anti-American NFL players continue to claim that they are protesting racial inequality all while cashing million dollar checks and equating NFL team owners to slave owners.

After months of fans voicing their frustration over these disgusting protests, President Trump entered the fray by stating that players who kneel during the national anthem should be fired, which in turn ignited the controversy swirling around the players. Instead, of these racist NFL players ending their obvious publicity stunt to appear politically relevant, they only ramped up their efforts. Week after week, more players continue to kneel or raise a single fist in the “Black Power” salute while the national anthem was played. But, unlike all those ungrateful players, quarterback Tom Brady is trying to make a difference by doing the exact opposite.

Yesterday, the New England Patriots played against the Atlanta Falcons, but before the game began fans in the stand were able to witness what humility looks like. Tom Brady opted out of his normal pre-game routine and took the time to recognize roughly 200 military men and women that were in attendance with wide receiver Chris Hogan.

Here is more from Independent Journal Review:

The plan to invite the members of the military to the game was reportedly initiated by Patriots long snapper Joe Cardona, who is also an active member of the U.S. Navy, and special teams player Matthew Slater, according to 247 Sports.

It was a small gesture, but the message from Brady was clear.

The display is getting some extra attention as it stands in contrast to some NFL players who continue to kneel or sit during the national anthem in protest of racial injustice. Polls have shown many Americans find it offensive to use the national anthem as a platform for any protest.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell recently made it clear that the league wants players to stand for the national anthem, saying in a statement:

“Like many of our fans, we believe that everyone should stand for the National Anthem. It is an important moment in our game. We want to honor our flag and our country, and our fans expect that of us. We also care deeply about our players and respect their opinions and concerns about critical social issues. The controversy over the Anthem is a barrier to having honest conversations and making real progress on the underlying issues. We need to move past this controversy, and we want to do that together with our players.”

However, he later clarified the NFL would not punish players who continued to kneel.

Tom Brady’s act of kindness and respect is incredibly refreshing after watching months of constant disrespect from arrogant NFL players. It is entirely possible that the players that are still carrying on with their nasty protest may quit it after seeing that their actions are disgraceful and not welcome at all.

These NFL players have the right to protest but need to pick a better venue that does not anger the majority of your fan base. The old adage of “know your audience” applies to this exact situation, and if they want to keep their public platform, they better start reassessing their protest. They are more than welcome to kneel, make signs, and lecture people when they are out of uniform, but when they slip that uniform on, they need to adhere to their bosses rules and demands. If they don’t like it, well, there’s the door.

At any rate, hopefully, they will notice all the positive press Tom Brady is receiving and finally, begin to back peddle on their nasty protests!
