Democrats in the California legislature recently introduced the “Safe Youth Football Act,” a bill designed to outlaw tackle football for all kids under the age of 14.
If the bill were to become law, California would become the first state to enact such a ban, while three other states – Illinois, New York, and Maryland – have also proposed similar legislation over the past month.
Assemblymembers Kevin McCarty (D-Sacramento) and Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher (D-San Diego) introduced the bill, claiming their intent is to “protect children from brain injury by establishing a minimum age to play in organized tackle football programs.”
The bill is yet another alarmist response to a growing narrative that playing football at a young age leads to brain damage later in life, despite what many experts call “missing links and gaps in knowledge.”
To lend credence to his effort, Assemblyman McCarty included on his website a quote from Dr. Bennet Omalu, the Nigerian-American doctor who claims he discovered chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).
“The research is clear – when children participate in high-impact, high-contact sports, there is a 100% risk of exposure to brain damage,” Omalu said. “Once you know the risk involved in something, what’s the first thing you do? Protect children from it.”
Dr. Omalu has long credited himself with discovering CTE, the brain disease he believes playing football causes.
However, according to scientific journals and brain researchers interviewed by the Associated Press, Omalu neither discovered the disease nor named it, and goes too far when he publicly takes credit for naming or discovering CTE.
‘‘It’s just not true, and I think he knows that,’’ said William Stewart, a neuropathologist at Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow.
‘‘Chronic traumatic encephalopathy has been around for decades. It’s not a new term,’’ Stewart said. ‘‘The only thing I would say that Bennet has done is that he identified it in an American footballer.’’
Omalu also made headlines during the 2016 Presidential campaign when he claimed that Hillary Clinton had been poisoned, after Clinton collapsed while leaving the September 11th Memorial in New York City.
I must advice the Clinton campaign to perform toxicologic analysis of Ms. Clinton’s blood. It is possible she is being poisoned.

Omalu went on to blame then-candidate Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimier Puttin for the supposed “poisioning” of Clinton.
I do not trust Mr. Putin and Mr. Trump. With those two all things are possible.

Colin Kaepernick Posts Anti-American Video on July 4th, Calls Independence Day a ‘Celebration of White Supremacy’
Kaepernick hates the country that has given him so much.
Washed up former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick yet again showed his hatred of America on July 4th by making a social media post calling Independence Day a “celebration of white supremacy.”
Kaepernick posted a video featuring actor James Earl Jones reading Frederick Douglass’s historic speech, “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July,” over a montage of Klansmen, lynchings, police brutality, and slaves. The overriding message is that America is inherently racist, and the nation must be destroyed. This is part of a broader leftist effort to demonize Independence Day as they believe no American should celebrate their nation’s history.
“Black ppl have been dehumanized, brutalized, criminalized + terrorized by America for centuries, & are expected to join your commemoration of ‘independence’, while you enslaved our ancestors,” Kaepernick wrote in the post. “We reject your celebration of white supremacy & look forward to liberation for all.”
The video can be seen here:

Kapernick has demonstrated that hating America and fomenting racial division can be very lucrative these days with most multinational corporations taking orders from China. He has made far more money than he ever could have as a football player becoming the poster child for black dominance.
Big League Politics has reported on how Nike threw piles of cash at Kaepernick after he got down on his knees to show his hatred of his country:
A former NFL quarterback has been selected as the face of Nike’s “Just Do It” campaign for its 30-year anniversary.
Colin Kaepernick Tweeted the first image from this year’s campaign Monday afternoon.
“Believe in something,” he said. “Even if it means sacrificing everything. #JustDoIt”
Kaepernick started the NFL’s National Anthem protest controversy by kneeling for the Anthem in 2016. Players who have joined in the protest say that it is about recognizing unfair treatment of minorities by police.
In August of the same year, Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in the same month, and has been jobless ever since.
But many NFL fans saw it as a sign of disrespect to the brave men and women who serve our nation each day. Fans launched a boycott of the league, which saw a ratings drop of about 10% in the 2017-2018 season.
Those same Americans are lashing out at the Nike brand.
Kaepernick could be considered a terrorist organizer now that the marxist Black Lives Matter mob is raising cities and targeting white people for violence.
