Halloween Is Coming #51

Black NFL players do a peaceful protest against violent, racist cops...

...And, wouldn't you know it, a violent, racist cop comes along and proves their case.

Oklahoma cop busted for racist Facebook threat against NFL players

Officer Wannabe Tough Guy who says that he wants to "bitch slap" a 250-300 pound football player.

A part-time police officer in Oklahoma will spared punishment and instead receive “social media counseling” after threatening protesting NFL players on Facebook.

According to News on 6, Verdigris police officer Brandon Jarvis launched a racist attack on professional football players who have protested anti-black police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem.

Writing on Facebook, Jarvis threatened, “Precisely why I don’t watch NFL bunch of f*ckin overpaid greasy headed moon crickets expecting everything for nothing!! It would make my day to b*tch slap the Jerry juice outta everyone of them’s hair!! F*ck em!! #sorrynotf*ckinsorry”

Alerted to the post, which Jarvis wrote when commenting on hockey players standing for the anthem, Police Chief Jack Shackleford said that the officer would not be suspended.

According to Shackleford, Jarvis will instead receive “some personal counseling by me in the use of social media.”

“If he is saying that his account was hacked, I don’t have any evidence to substantiate either claim,” Shackelford said in a statement.

Oh... I would pay to see him go up against one of these guys one-on-one with a slap game contest.

Trump and Pence's War on Black Athletes Has Nothing to Do With Sports

Saturday, October 14, 2017
By Chauncey Devega, Salon | Op-Ed

Like his boss Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence is a lazy racist. Trump's public demands nothing more because they are easily satisfied by the thought of humiliating black and brown people. Last Sunday, Pence spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayer money to fly from Las Vegas to an NFL game in Indiana. His plan? To stage a political stunt where he showed his displeasure towards "uppity" black football players who are protesting police brutality and social injustice in America.

After staying at the football game for several minutes, he left in dramatic fashion. Pence would then announce via the social media platform Twitter that:

I left today's Colts game because @POTUS and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem.


Donald Trump was very pleased. He seconded Pence's publicity stunt:

I asked VP Pence to leave stadium if any players kneeled, disrespecting our country. I am proud of him and SecondLadyKaren.


Of course, Pence is no more than a hypocrite and a lapdog. He claims to be upset about "disrespect" towards America's soldiers, yet he serves under a man who called Sen. John McCain -- who was a prisoner of war in North Vietnam for five and a half years, subjected to torture and solitary confinement -- a coward and a loser. Pence's selective outrage is even more obvious (and odious) given that he expressed no anger when Donald Trump insulted Khizr and Ghazala Khan, whose son, Capt. Humayun Khan, was killed while serving with the US Army in Iraq.

Mike Pence directs terms like "dignify" and "disrespect" toward black athletes who are silently expressing their opinions. Yet, like Donald Trump, he does not lash out at the white supremacists who marched in Charlottesville (again) last weekend.

We should be operating under the presumption that Trump wants to reverse everything Obama did...

Simply because, and for no other reason, than Obama did it.

Nothing else... No other consideration... Not because it's the right thing to do... And without any idea what consequences would be borne from any such reversals.

No other President of the United States, in this history of this country, has ever gone to the depths of trying to erase everything his predecessor had ever accomplished.

Think about that for a second. There had always been some change of direction from administration-to-admininistration, some of it major, but most of it superficial. But very little of that was ever out of the same kind of petty spite that Trump is apparently obsessed with, against all things waxed Obama.

And the worst part of this is that he doesn't even care what harm he's causing. He's not listening to anyone for advice, except Fox And Friends and he's taking all criticism of his policies as personal affronts and instigations for retaliation. He's setting up the nation for a huge fall and all he's going to do is blame the victims for the harm he's causing them. He'll blame the very people who warned him not to do those things. He'll blame Obama, even though he's gone out of his way to reverse Obama's previous actions. He'll blame everyone in the world, including those of his own party, everyone that is, except himself and his pal, VladiMort Pooty-Poot.

He is THE Unaccountable Man. The man who's allowed to take bad presidentin' to such heretofore unfathomable lows that he's become the WORST worst president ever. Doesn't anyone understand that he can be STOPPED? Like right now! Our Constitution has provisions to stop this miasma of incompetence, corruption and malfeasance from choking the very breath of the body politic.

But the GOPrs are never going to do their jobs.

So, until he's carried out of the White House on a rail and tarred and feathered hopefully (They sure knew how to take care of low-down reprobates like Trump in den olden days), expect it all to get nothing more than worse.

Anyway, as always, FDT and may our deities of choice have mercy on all our collective non-corporeal internal essences.





Chuck's Evolution on The Planet of The Trumpanzees

Before:


After:


I think that we all know how this ends:

Trump and his entire crew are intentionally wrecking the government

They’re all trying to tear it down because they intend to rule over and sell off the ruins and line their own pockets with what they can get.

Welcome to the Age of the Trump Fire Sale.

Establishment GOPrs won’t stop him either, even after it’s too late. They’re literally sitting on their hands and allowing him to do this because they’re weak and cowardly. Ryan and McConnell both know that Trump can’t salvage their agenda, but they’re refusing to act anyway.

The only people who can stop this debacle are the voters. If they can give the Democrats congressional control in the next midterms and the White House in the next general, only then will we be able to save all of our collective asses.

Until then, hold on to your butts, because it’s going to be an express elevator ride to hell for us all.

FDT.
