Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy is the latest example of a man under fire from the left-wing mob for creating edgy content. He is refusing to budge an inch as liberal jackals demand his cancellation.
Portnoy is under fire because of comments he made in 2016 regarding entitled race huckster Colin Kaepernick, the washed up former NFL quarterback who cashed out for hating his country. He was joking during the segment, but context does not matter to the mob that aims to destroy all successful white people.
“So I’m going to say something that’s racist,” Portnoy said before explaining that he thought Kaepernick was “an ISIS guy… Throw a head wrap on this guy, he’s a terrorist.”
“He looks like a Bin Laden. That’s not racist,” Portnoy added. A colleague opined that Kaepernick “is not really that Black… I don’t think he speaks for Black people.”
Portnoy also published a Tweet in 2016 with pictures of Bin Laden and Kaepernick side by side, writing: “Anybody who disagrees with me saying Kaepernick looks like Bin Laden is a moron. #factsonly.”
“He just thinks Black are people are being treated unfairly, so he’s making a moral stand. Fine, I didn’t know he was Black… I don’t hate him — I hated him a lot more when I thought he was a terrorist,” Portnoy said in an additional clip.
What’s terrible is altering and cutting up a comedy sites video and giving no other context. Why was this part cut out? Oh because it didn’t fit the agenda. https://t.co/cPsk3wL8MD pic.twitter.com/9IwKZiOeU5

He declared defiantly on Sunday night: “Memo to the cancel cops. I knew this was coming before you did. And I’m ready. You don’t cancel me. I cancel you.”
“They’ve been trying to cancel me for two decades — I’m uncancellable,” Portnoy said in a video address to his haters. “I’m big. You’re little. I cancel you.”

Even though he has never shied away from controversy, Portnoy continues to become more wealthy and influential. He has even become a political pundit in recent weeks, due in large part to a viral rant about COVID-19 hysteria and its impact on small business:
Portnoy’s video has gone viral because he is expressing concerns that are being felt by ordinary Americans, many of whom have lost their life’s work due to the ongoing shutdown.
“When did this become ‘Flatten the curve’ to ‘We have to find a cure or everyone’s going to die?’” Portnoy said in the social media video.
“You gotta give these people a choice. If you told me because of corona, I lost Barstool. I had to go get a 9-to-5 and start f****** over, I’d rather die of corona, seriously, or at least take my chances. I’m not saying everybody would do that. I would,” he added.
“There are no great options,” Portnoy said, “but you can’t just decimate the entire economy…
Musk and Portnoy may have to lead the pitchfork-and-torch brigade to save the global economy from power-tripping bureaucrats who have no regard for the people.
Portnoy’s media empire is not likely to be harmed by the left-wing mob, as he is demonstrating that strength is the only way to fend off these savages.
Ohio High School Football Players Reinstated After Suspension For Entering Field With Thin Blue Line, American Flags
Why were they even suspended?
Two Little Miami, Ohio high school football players who were suspended from their team for entering a game while carrying the Thin Blue Line and Thin Red Line(commemorating firefighters) flags have been freed from suspension, after community members expressed outrage at the punishment of the two young men.
Jarad Bentley and Brady Williams had been given an indefinite suspension from the Little Miami High School football team for carrying the two flags onto the field before a game, apparently violating a rule against political symbols. The two seniors reject the notion that they were making a political statement, and one of the boys had spoken of his intention to honor first responders, such as his own father, on the anniversary of 9/11.
Two Little Miami football players pay the price for civil disobedience. They were told not to carry onto the field thin blue line and thin red line flags at their 9/11 game. They did anyway. The school has now suspended them from the team indefinitely. #ThinBlueLine #ThinRedLine pic.twitter.com/19y9GAvaxr

After concerned parents and community members organized a protest event to stand with Williams and Bentley, the Little Miami School Board reversed its decision, freeing the senior players from suspension.
The President of the school board seemed keen to establish that the institution “supports police,” perhaps feeling the pressure from angry parents displeased to see the patriotic young men kicked from the football team for an innocuous display of patriotism.

They still might face some consequences, and reportedly team officials had commanded the players not to enter the field with the flags. Their punishment will be settled within the athletic department’s code of conduct.
College and high school sports teams put on elaborate displays in support of the left-wing Black Lives Matter movement all the time. Pro-police and firefighter flags are not a political statement by a long shot. This suspension never should’ve been issued in the first place.
