Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is getting trolled hard for coming out in favor of the writers’ revolt that is happening within the failing sports blog, Deadspin.
The fledgling Democratic presidential candidate issued a message of solidarity to the website’s writers on Thursday who are staging a revolt after being asked to do their jobs and write about sports instead of writing about unpopular social justice topics.
I stand with the former @Deadspin workers who decided not to bow to the greed of private equity vultures like @JimSpanfeller. This is the kind of greed that is destroying journalism across the country, and together we are going to take them on.
— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) November 1, 2019
Bernie followed his embarrassing tweet up with a link to his op/ed to save journalism through massive government intervention meant to prop up left-wing propaganda outlets that the market has rejected.
“Real journalism requires significant resources. One reason we do not have enough real journalism in America right now is because many outlets are being gutted by the same forces of greed that are pillaging our economy,” Sanders wrote.
He also wants to “reinstate and strengthen media ownership rules, and we will limit the number of stations that large broadcasting corporations can own in each market and nationwide. We will also direct federal agencies to study the impact of consolidation in print, television, and digital media to determine whether further antitrust action is necessary.”
Twitter was not kind to Sanders for his plan to essentially bail out Deadspin. They blasted the socialist fossil for his absurd and out-of-touch rhetoric.
A sports website asked it journalists to write about sports…

Bernie, I will donate $100 if you will do the haters guide to the Williams Sonoma catalog this year.

I will also donate. But it’s Bernie. So I’ll give him an extra hundred of your dollars.

Yes the greed of the owners who don’t want their product destroyed by employees sabotaging the site with woke nonsense. Wild.

It's a private website. They aren't being silenced. They're just being told to take their garbage somewhere else.

The Deadspin writer exodus occurred earlier this week following an internal memo telling writers to stick to sports and drop unpopular woke takes:
The sports blog Deadspin, which is owned by G/O Media, is falling to pieces after an internal memo from management told writers to “stick to sports” due to a massive fan backlash against political content.
The entitled social justice warrior staffers have staged a revolt, with many quitting their positions rather than performing the jobs they were hired to do…
However, G/O Media claims that the changes they are making are in fact good for business. They are responding to market demand at a time when demand for “woke” sports media is in the toilet.
“In September, unsurprisingly, 24 of the top 25 stories on Deadspin were sports-related while non-sports content accounted for less than 1 percent of the page views on the site,” a spokesman for G/O Media said.
The spokesman added that “our writers have a free hand to cover the intersection of sports and politics, sports and pop culture, sports and business, or, frankly, just about any topic even tangentially related to sports.”
Sanders response to Deadspin’s fall demonstrates the problems with the ideology of socialism. It completely ignores the economic reality of any situation, and props up entities in the marketplace that have zero worth to consumers.
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.
