The Human Rights Campaign is attacking the New York Giants for hiring former wide receiver David Tyree because of his past supposedly anti-gay comments.

Tyree, a former Giants player who retired from football in 2010, was hired to be the team’s director of player development but as soon as the announcement was made, pro-gay activists decried the hiring because of his comments in support of traditional marriage.

Obama’s Buttinski Trademark Board Hadn’t Received ONE Complaint About Redskins Name

Obama’s Trademark Trial and Appeal Board which last month jumped into the debate about the evils of the football team’s name and summarily declared the name “Redskins” to be “offensive” has now admitted that there was no cause for its actions.

This shows how Obama’s government is a left-wing, activist government that does not respond to we, the people, but actively looks for ways to tear down this country and remake it in their lord’s image. We now find out that when the buttinski trademark board that illicitly ruled that the Redskins name is somehow “illegal” didn’t have a single complaint from the public before the department made its activist ruling.

V. Stiviano Also Said Weird, Racist Stuff on Tape

After “outing” her boss to the world as a racist with a secretly recorded phone conversation, old video has emerged of Donald Sterling’s would-be girlfriend, V. Stiviano, also making racially charged statements.

A video from 2011 has re-emerged made by Sterling’s “helper” as an audition for a failed reality show about gold digger women.

On the video, Stiviano is heard claiming that black people are financially irresponsible.

Despite’s League Claims of Clippers Sale, Sterling May Fight to Bitter End

-By Warner Todd Huston

The NBA may think it has set in motion the eventual sale of the L.A. Clippers thanks to racist comments made by team owner Donald Sterling, but Sterling has a long history of launching tough lawsuits and is rumored to have told a friend that he isn’t going to just roll over in this deal.

After a recording of Sterling’s racist private comments made to a girlfriend became public, NBA commissioner Adam Silver banned the Clippers owner for life and now the NBA owners are planning to take a vote about what they should do about the whole situation.

Most assume the owners will vote to try and force Sterling to sell his team and vacate the league. There are many reports that members of the owners group are saying that they think they already have the votes to sanction Sterling.

But, on the other hand, this is the United States of America and citizens have a certain expectation that something they have purchased with their own hard earned money is their property and they have certain rights to it.

[UPDATE] Coke Balkanizes USA With Super Bowl Ad

With UPDATE at bottom

The left was ecstatic over Coca-Cola’s decision to air a commercial during the Super Bowl that featured as its sound track the song America The Beautiful. Oh, they weren’t ecstatic because of the song. They were ecstatic that Coke decided to have the song sung in a myriad of foreign languages. They weren’t excited over an American song they were happy that Coke decided to snub English and American traditions, of course.

Naturally, the retort against those that were upset that Coke produced the song in a string of foreign tongues is that they are “racists” and “haters” who hate the fact that there are people other than White, English-speakers in the US.

Just as naturally, this is simply not why people were upset at Coke.

Coke posted a press release claiming that its commercial was “a salute to America” and that “the ad features real people enjoying each other and a Coke.”

Further explaining the commercial in the press release, Katie Bayne, President, North America Brands, Coca-Cola North America, said, “For 127 years, Coca-Cola has been proud to be a part of bringing friends and families together while memories are made. With ‘It’s Beautiful,’ we are simply showing that America is beautiful, and Coke is for everyone.”

When a CNN Sports Dolt Tries to Explain Chicago’s Gun Problem With Laughable Results

CNN sports writer LZ Granderson tried to write a serious column about Chicago’s gun ban laws and only ended up making himself look foolish for the effort. This is what happens when sports dorks try to think on subjects outside their silly, inconsequential world of sports.

With his columns, “When a City’s Gun Laws Get Shot Down,” it seems that Granderson was trying desperately to make sense of the failure of Chicago’s gun ban to keep the city safe and it appears that he is supportive of taking away American’s Second Amendment rights merely by local government fiat. Yet even as he seemed to support gun bans, nearly every word he wrote proves that gun bans don’t work.

Sadly, after reading his mush of a column, it is almost impossible to figure out what they heck this guy’s point is supposed to be. but it does show that he is not capable of logically thinking through a problem and writing a cogent discussion of that issue.

ESPN sportscaster Stephen A. Smith doesn’t understand why the African American community is so dead set against the Republican Party and conservatives. He finds it absurd that blacks don’t even give the GOP a fair hearing.

The conversation arose as Smith, who says he is a registered independent, was asked to respond to former Cleveland Browns player Jim Brown’s comments that Lakers player Kobe Bryant couldn’t understand the American black community because Bryant spent a large portion of his youth living in Italy.

Smith called Brown’s comments “inappropriate” and went on to say:

See The Pro-Gun Commercial the Super Bowl Banned
-By Warner Todd Huston

Firearms company Daniel Defense filmed a TV commercial that it hoped it could air during the upcoming 2014 Super Bowl game, but NFL officials turned the ad away. Now you can see that ad right here.

The ad shows a young man coming home from work and walking into his home where a photo of him in a U.S. Marine dress uniform is seen. The man sees his wife and infant child and the voice over talks of the man’s responsibility to keep his family safe now that he is home from service to the country.

But the NFL rejected the ad saying, “Unfortunately, we cannot accept your commercial in football/Super Bowl spots due to the rules the NFL itself has set into place for your company’s category.”

For the last six years Nate Silver made himself a household name among political wonks for correctly predicting the 2008 and 2012 election cycles in The New York Times, but now Silver is reportedly preparing to leave the Times for ESPN to pursue more sports-related work.

A July 19 report in the paper reveals that insider information indicates that Silver will be announcing a switch to the sports cable TV network maybe as soon as next week.

The Times speculates that Silver will be a recurring commentator on the new sports show that Keith Olbermann will host on Disney-owned ESPN2. Silver is also expected to have an on-air role during upcoming election cycles on ABC News, also owned by Disney.

Neither ESPN nor Mr. Silver have commented on the possible move but insiders requesting anonymity told the Times that Silver’s new arrangement could be announced as early as July 22.

The move would not be surprising. After the 2012 election cycle, Silver was blessed with a multitude job offers and his three-year contract with the paper expires in August.

VIDEO: Basketball’s Magic Johnson: ‘Obamacare is Working’

Former NBA great Earvin “Magic” Johnson has seen Obamacare and has pronounced it good. According to Johnson, “a lot” of CEOs at hospitals have told him that Obamacare “is working.”

Johnson was invited on MSNBC to talk about the sport’s March Madness tournaments, but as the interview ended, he had an off topic and unsolicited assessment of Obamacare.

“Obamacare is working,” Johnson suddenly said. “I talk to a lot of CEOs of hospitals–it is working. And I’m glad Governor Scott down in Florida accepted Obamacare because it will work”

This is an interesting assessment seeing as how the President’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010–dubbed Obamacare–doesn’t really kick in fully until 2014. In fact, the current phase of the law, the Health Insurance Marketplace which was supposed to be ready by now, is being put off because of poor planning, confusion, and other problems among the various states.

Everything is racist these days. Even the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, apparently. At least that is the latest tempest in a teapot being stirred by our busy race merchants.

The website Jezebel is the latest to stir the pot claiming that because SI used locations on all seven continents and featured people in native garb as a back drop for its swimsuit models, why the magazine must be racist.

The photos shot in Spain featured matadors. In China the model was photographed surrounded by young girls in traditional Chinese garb. In another shot in China an older man in a bamboo cooley hat made ready to pole-push a homemade raft as the model sat alluringly by. In Namibia a white model was shown next to a black man in traditional garb.

Was it highlighting beauty and celebrating diversity? Or was it just stereotyping? Whatever its intent, with its “diverse” photos, SI can’t seem to win.

For some unknown reason ESPN has issued a formal apology to Katherine Webb, girlfriend of Alabama QB A.J. McCarron, for sportscaster Brent Musburger’s on-air ogling of the beauty during Alabama’s BCS Championship Game on Monday night.

In a statement on TwitLonger, ESPN spokesman Mike Soltys wrote: “Have been asked on focus on @_KatherineWebb in BCS: We always try to capture interesting storylines and the relationship between an Auburn grad who is Miss Alabama and the current Alabama quarterback certainly met that test. However, we apologize that the commentary in this instance went too far and Brent understands that.”

During the broadcast of the game on Monday, TV cameramen focused McCarron’s girlfriend and Musburger began riffing on how lucky quarterbacks were for their beautiful women.

“If you’re a youngster in Alabama, start getting the football out and throw it around the backyard with Pop.” Musburger said during the broadcast.

Musburger was attacked by many after the broadcast, but others have come to his support.

During his Sunday broadcast, Costas seemed to favorably quote a left-wing commentator who decried America’s fascination with firearms.

Instantly fans and members of the media alike began to criticize Costas’ insertion of political matters into his football broadcast.

Fox News’ Brit Hume, for instance, quickly Tweeted, “Bob Costas quotes KC sportswriter to make gun control case re: Jovan Belcher murder/suicide. Cites all known gun control cliches.”

Instead of Watching Embassies Burn Obama Watches Football Last Weekend

-By Warner Todd Huston

We are told that President Obama watched a lot of football this weekend. I guess it was more fun than attempting to deal with our embassies burning in the Middle East and our soldiers being killed in Afghanistan.

The newsflash is courtesy of Amy Gardner’s twitter feed. Gardner, the White House reporter for the Washington Post, reports that the press gaggle on Air Force One reported that Obama spent his time watching football.

President Obama didn’t watch SNL season opener this weekend; watched a lot of football, per Josh Earnest on AF1 gaggle.

Must be nice to take time away from the pressing duties of being president to relax and watch a little football. But one wonders when this president actually takes time to undertake any of those pressing duties between golf, football, bowling in the White House bowling alley, and flying about the country for daily fundraising events?

USA Today’s Olympic Fantasy of an All Female Country

-By Warner Todd Huston

The Olympics is usually a time of a country to express pride in its athletes, all its athletes. But not for USA Today. No, USA Today thought it would be interesting to imagine if our female athletes were “their own country.”

In its post Olympics coverage, USA Today wasn’t happy enough that America’s female Olympians were big winners in London. For USA Today, Kelly Whiteside went to fantasy land.

U.S. female athletes have done more than their fair share, winning 27 of the team’s 41 gold medals so far. To put that accomplishment in perspective: If the U.S. women were their own nation, they would be third in the gold medal count.

“I’ve been thrilled to see how well U.S. women have done,” said Kayla Harrison, a gold medalist in judo. “It feels amazing to be a part of something so much bigger than myself; I definitely feel connected. To be able to say I’m a strong confident young woman and an Olympic champion is amazing, and I hope we have a million young girls inspired right now.”

The same holds true for China, as women have won 20 of that country’s 37 gold medals.

We are in such a politically correct era that a major newspaper can’t be happy that a nation’s athletes, both its male and female athletes, did well at an international sporting event without separating the sexes.

U.S. Olympic Hurdler Lolo Jones was slammed by The New York Times as a woman of little accomplishment, a flimsy girl not sufficiently woman’s libby enough, one that is all show and no go and during an August 8 appearance on NBC’s Today, the hurdler broke down in tears wondering why the U.S. media was so ready to tear competitors down instead of supporting our U.S. Olympians?

For the Times, longtime sports writer Jere Longman seemed to think that Lolo Jones’ image of beauty and grace was a strike against women’s lib. “Women have struggled for decades to be appreciated as athletes,” he said in an August 4 editorial. But Jones has gotten a lot of notice “based not on achievement but on her exotic beauty and on a sad and cynical marketing campaign,” he carped.

Wash Post Imagines Non-Existent ‘Questions About Gun Violence’ at Olympics

-By Warner Todd Huston

The headline of the Internet version of a Washington Post story about the shooting sports at the Olympics asserts that “even at the Olympics” the Olympians face questions about gun violence. Yet, upon reading the article, it is clear that the author of the piece is saying that none of the Olympic contestants have been confronted with such questions at all, at least not from anyone in the Olympics.

The headline of the piece reads, Even at the Olympics, Athletes in the Sport of Shooting Face Questions About Gun violence. But as you read it, what is clear is that only the media are pestering the Olympic Shooters with such questions. The contestants said no one actually in the Olympics, no fellow Olympians, have asked any such questions.

The print version carries a different headline that isn’t much better: Shooting: Athletes Battle for Titles — and to Dispel the Stigma of Gun Violence.

Ice Creamed: Ben and Jerry’s Apologize for Their Racism

Jeremy Lin, the famed nouveau New York Knicks basketball icon, must be about tired of this foolishness at this point. Oh, I am not talking about racism being perpetrated against him, but the claims of almost racism that were accidentally, but not really, perpetrated against him. This time it is the lefty ice cream empire Ben and Jerry’s apologizing for their accidental, not really, sort-a-kinda, racism aimed at Mr. Linsanity himself.

This handwringing over ersatz racism began when an idiot headline editor at ESPN wrote his lamentable “Chick In The Armor” headline after a game where Jeremy Lin, he of Asian heritage, did poorly. The writer got fired for his “racist” comment.

Then came the sort of surreal “journalism guide” published by the Asian American Journalists Association (who’d have thought there was such a thing?).

The headline written by ESPN editor Anthony Federico about Asian-American basketball star Jeremy Lin lasted only about a half hour before ESPN changed it but the fallout is lasting a bit longer for editor Federico.

On its Saturday story on Jeremy Lin’s less than stellar game the night before, ESPN’s headline screamed, “Chink in the Armor.”

Sports fans were riled at this apparent racial allusion – player Jeremy being of Asian background — and ESPN pulled the headline down quickly. In this age of Internet outrage-of-the-day stories, this one was a natural to get attention.

As the day rolled on, ESPN decided not to just change the headline but to fire its writer, editor Anthony Federico.

Today, Federico is defending himself to a degree and apologizing profusely.

New York Rabbi: A Tim Tebow Win Will Cause Christians to Burn Mosques, Bash Gays

**UPDATED** Hammerman removes paragraph from story

In the category of bigotry and hatred spares no religion, we find such hatred hiding behind religion in one “Rabbi” Joshua Hammerman of New York City. Hammerman has indulged his inner Father-Coughlin-in-reverse by proclaiming that if Tim Tebow wins the Super Bowl, why, Christians will go on a rampage that will result in the burning of mosques and the bashing of gays. Now, are you ready for some football?

Hammerman disgorged his absurd claims at his New York Jewish Week blog posted on December 12 titled, “My Tim Tebow Problem.” It is instead Hammerman’s civility problem. Tim Tebow has nothing to do with this neer do well’s extreme hatred of Christians.

Calling Tebow the “poster boy of the Christian right,” Hammerman is disgusted by the fact that the footballer — oh the horrors — “thanks Jesus after every game.” It all makes the “rabbi” expound upon his “fear” about “what will happen if the hulky Denver Bronco quarterback wins the Super Bowl.”

And what will happen you might ask? Let’s let this so-called rabbi take it from here:

Tony La Russa, the newly retired manager of the St. Louis Cardinals ball team, has a bone to pick with President Obama. La Russa says that when they won the World Series Obama never called to offer them his congratulations.

La Russa notes that White House staffers did call to make sure they had the right number to make a call later, but “We never did get a call,” La Russa said.

It is a tradition, no matter how insipid, that a president call some sports team or another that won some title or another and Obama has done it before, to be sure. But this time the Cards get a bye, I guess…

This story has so much to hate, it’s hard to figure out where to start. It has sports, it has a nice guy (not to be hated) and it has the idiots at the IRS… or maybe just speculation from a newspaper about the idiots at the IRS.

Anyway, some of you that follow sports might have seen that baseball great Derek Jeter made his 3,000th hit at Yankees Stadium in New York a few days ago. A fan named Christian Lopez caught the thing and after the game, this nice young fellow gave the ball back to Derek so that he’d have a memento of his big achievement.

Now, this is part of the story that is not to hate. This young fan did not have to give back the ball. Further more, this ball could have been worth quite a bit of money on the odious sports collectibles market. By being a nice guy and giving the ball back to the player he might have gipped himself out of a bunch of money.

So, in the other part of the story not to hate, the Yankees ball organization gave the young man around $32,000 worth of free stuff because he was nice enough to give the ball back to Jeter.

In its intro to the 2011 U.S. Open golf tournament, NBC Sports had a heart stirring montage of Old Glory, school kids reciting the pledge of allegiance, all intercut with some of golf’s biggest contemporary stars. It had everything: resounding music, patriotism, and golf. But one thing it didn’t have… the whole pledge. It seems NBC sort of forgot the “under God” part of the pledge.

That’s right, NBC cut out the part where the kids say “under God,” as in “one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

This was obviously done on purpose. The video of the kids saying the allegiance goes from “one nation” and skips ahead to “with liberty and justice for all.”

It must be emotionally draining to be a Muslim. After all, they seem to spend every waking minute finding new things to get outraged over, their every breath seems dedicated to finding people giving them slight.

Superbowl Fail: Superbowl’s Ronald Reagan Video All But Ignored

-By Warner Todd Huston

As Superbowl XLV began a video celebrating the life of Ronald Reagan was played on the jumbo tron screen in the stadium for the sports fans there to enjoy. It was only fitting seeing as how the game was being played on Reagan’s 100th birthday. But the national audiences were never made aware that this video was played. For the millions of folks at home, Reagan’s birthday was ignored.

This video was part of the Superbowl programing, certainly as official as Christina Aguilera’s mangling of the National Anthem and the Black Eyed Peas’… well, whatever it was the Black Eyed Peas were doing. Yet the folks at home were left ignorant of the airing of the Reagan video.

It couldn’t have been a squeamishness about politics. After all, the Black Eyed Peas were allowed to stick a plea to Obama to institute more socialism in one of their “songs” during the half time segment (I hesitate to call it a “show”). So why was Reagan’s birthday video ignored?

In any case the video is a great compilation of Reagan moments and is but a few minutes long. It was sponsored by The Reagan Foundation.

L.A. Sports Stadium Project More Important Than Libraries, Police, Firemen?

-By Warner Todd Huston

The 2010 elections are now history. If there was any lesson from this Republican tidal wave that swept across the country it is that the vast majority of Americans are furious at the overspending and flawed leadership of our politicians. Voters are no longer so easily fooled by claims that wild spending sprees are beneficial. California was spared the GOP tidal wave but California voters of all stripes voted in droves to impose a high threshold on imposing any new taxes (what was LA turnout). In the City of Los Angeles real pain is being felt as libraries are shut down due to budgetary cuts with police and firefighters next on the chopping block. Yet even with all these cuts in services, politicians in the City of Los Angeles are still considering a multi-million dollar subsidy — using taxpayer dollars – for the problematic Staples NFL Stadium project.

Across the country voters are starting to veer away from supporting public money going to fund stadiums and other such entertainment projects. Recently the Wall Street Journal reported that, “taxpayers are opposing agreements to fund baseball projects after a decades long boom in publicly financed ballparks.” It appears that L.A. has not learned its lesson from November 2nd.

-By Warner Todd Huston

Even as supporters claim they won’t need subsidies, it is more likely that L.A. is about to plunge itself forever into debt with a new stadium, the Staples Center. A look at just about any other convention center, or stadium in the country easily shows that these projects seldom pay for themselves as builders insist that they will do. Yet, every time you turn around another city is falling for this false hope.

Unfortunately it is almost impossible for the average citizen to track where the budget money is going in any particular city budget. As we learned from Bell, California people have even been duped into making city politicians millionaires and millions have been misspent.

Cities shift funds from one department to another with such regularity that tracking it is difficult. If the City of Bell is any lesson we need far more transparency in city budgeting.

But it shouldn’t be any surprise to the city fathers of LA that the Staples Center will never pay for itself. After all, the Convention Center has lost millions every year, too, and now they intend to tear down part of that losing venture to build yet another losing venture. According to the L.A. Almanac, in 2005 the convention center brought in $9,130,000. Appropriations for the convention center, however, were 21,608,518. That is an operating loss.

Stadium Deal in LA a Moneypit

-By Warner Todd Huston

Whenever I think of this new Staples sports stadium deal going down in Los Angeles I can’t help but think of the “bread and circuses” that contributed to the fall of the Roman Empire. Here is the City of L.A. sinking millions into this entertainment project leaving the people destitute and all for what? After all, as I wrote in the last column, these stadiums don’t seem to pay for themselves. So why is LA doing this? Is it just the prestige of having a football franchise?

Is having a football franchise enough of a palladium to justify sinking millions of tax dollars into a project like this? The city and the state it is in are going bankrupt, yet the city fathers of Los Angeles are pursing this football team with stars in their eyes. Is this the sort of hard-nosed, grown-ups we want leading our government?

Even more ridiculous is the plan to tear down a portion of the convention center to build the stadium. In a city starving for revenue does it make any sense to tear down a facility that brings in money and to leave that space fallow until the new stadium is finally finished years later?
