Dave Portnoy, the founder of Barstool Sports, sharply ridiculed Samer Kalaf, a former Managing Editor for Deadspin, for now working with a company whose boss he criticized a while back.
Kalaf is currently working for The Outline, an online news magazine, which entrepreneur Bryan Goldberg and his company Bustle Digital Media bought on March 27, 2019.
Kalaf previously criticized Goldberg for purchasing the Gawker archives in an article at the imploding sports website Deadspin, where he used to work at.
In an article, he gave his take on the situation:
The archives of our former sister site Gawker now belong to this goon. Bryan Goldberg, the founder of Bleacher Report, a sports site for idiots, and Bustle, the women’s site that assumes women are stupid, won the rights to the defunct Gawker.com in a bankruptcy auction today, as reported by the Wall Street Journal. It’s not clear why Goldberg, who received a lot of media coverage after he chose to found a women’s interest site for the most cynical, self-centered reasons, would want to own Gawker and the ability to delete anything written on it. Perhaps it was this post which admired how precisely brutal that New Yorker profile was about him—“With his puffy face and untrimmed hair, he resembles a giant six-year-old,”—or this article, with the headline “Who Gave This Asshole $6.5 Million to Launch a Bro-Tastic Lady Site?” Maybe it was one of these blogs that irked Bryan so much that he decided wanted to spend (a reported) $1.35 million on the site that wrote it. If he doesn’t cremate Gawker’s corpse, but instead tries to revive it, it’s a sure thing that the result will be substantially dumber than the original thing.
Fast forward to November, 11, 2019. Kalaf is working for The Outline where he took the time to attack Dave Portnoy and Barstool Sports.
In the article, Kalaf encouraged Barstool employees to form a union, which caught Portnoy’s attention.
The Barstool Sports founders said that Kalaf “lecturing Barstool employees how they need to form a Union while simultaneously admitting the Gawker Union did nothing to save them from total and complete destruction” is not “even the most hypocritical part of the story.”
He noted that “Somehow Samer is now working for the very guy who bought Gawker and Samer wrote a hit piece about calling him a ‘goon’ and everything else under the sun when he bought it. A guy who seemingly stands for everything that Samer and his comrades despised about their former owners at Deadspin. I mean it’s literal insanity.”
Deadspin has been going through rough times as numerous writers — Kalaf included — left the sports company after a suggestion from management that its staff focus more on sports content rather than woke material.
Now, Kalaf is working for a company that is owned by a person — Bryan Goldberg — that he criticized in the not so distant past. Portnoy questioned Kalaf’s morals and ethics and asked if he did “not think people would put together this connection” with Goldberg.
He then declared that Kalaf has “no morals or ethics when it comes to collecting a paycheck. He will roll over like a dog and ignore his personal convictions and beliefs if you wave a couple bucks in front of his face.”
Portnoy then ended the article with an offer to Kalaf:
Therefore I will give him the same offer I gave Barry Petchesky. I will pay Samer 100K a year to be my butler. Full benefits included. I mean if he’s willing to work for a guy who stands for everything he claims he hates why not me? I’m sure I pay better.
Under Portnoy’s watch, Barstool Sports has positioned itself as a sports outlet that rejects political correctness and is willing to provide balanced sports coverage while also exposing sports journalism laced with woke takes.
Ohio Republican Rob Portman Announces that He Won’t Be Seeking Re-Election
America first nationalists must capitalize on this opening in the senate.
On January 25, 2021, Ohio Senator Rob Portman announced that he will not be seeking re-election in 2022. The 2022 election cycle will be a critical mid-term cycle which will determine what course the Republican Party will take in the wake of Trump’s defeat.
According to a report at The Epoch Times, Portman cited “partisan gridlock in Congress and political polarization” as his main reasons for leaving the Senate.
“I feel fortunate to have been entrusted by the people of Ohio to represent them in the U.S. Senate. Today, I am announcing that I have made a decision not to run again in 2022,” Portman said in a statement.
The Republican senator continued, “I don’t think any Senate office has been more successful in getting things done, but honestly, it has gotten harder and harder to break through the partisan gridlock and make progress on substantive policy, and that has contributed to my decision.”
In Portman’s view, the United States has become “increasingly polarized where members of both parties are being pushed further to the right and further to the left, and that means too few people who are actively looking to find common ground.” Portman also contended that “This is not a new phenomenon, of course, but a problem that has gotten worse over the past few decades.” He concluded by stating that “This is a tough time to be in public service.”
Portman accompanies his colleagues Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey and North Carolina Senator Richard Burr in retiring from office. Portman’s presence won’t be missed. He voted for the Iraq War and even betrayed President Trump by voting against his national emergency declaration at the border. To add insult to injury, Portman has routinely talked smack about President Trump behind his back.
2022 is shaping up to be an interesting year for Republicans with numerous seats in play. With regards to open seats, there will be unique opportunities for America First nationalists to shine in. Ohio is ground zero for the emerging populist realignment taking place in America. Once a state that could go either way during a given election cycle, Ohio is now a safe Republican state.
America First nationalists should milk this opening for what it’s worth and place a staunch nationalist to run for the open GOP seat in 2022. This will be the first midterm where populists can begin purging the party of neocons and other establishment types.
