Rangers Broadcaster Under Fire for Liking Meme Posted by Trump Supporters

Published

on

Texas Rangers broadcaster C.J. Nitkowski has come under fire after liking a meme posted by the Twitter account @ProudBoysUSA which is associated to the pro-west fraternal group, Proud Boys. The Tweet, which is pictured below shows the U.S. women’s hockey team being pictured together, with one of the players showing their fingers in a circle, which is a part of the “circle game.”

The “circle game” is a game where one person puts their fingers in a circle and places it somewhere below the waist. If they can trick someone else into looking at the circle, that person loses the game.

Much of the backlash had to do with the group itself, which was labeled by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group earlier this month. As we reported here following that designation, the group itself isn’t actually a hateful group, despite the designation.

Many on Twitter also went after Nitkowski due to claims that the finger circle the U.S. women’s hockey player was displaying is actually a white power symbol. That claim came from a joke originating on the anonymous imageboard 4chan. The claim that the finger circle “ok” sign is a symbol for white power was so ridiculous that the Anti-Defamation League came out debunking the claim.

Despite that, Nitkowski was forced to set his Twitter account to private.

Big League Politics spoke exclusively with J.L. Van Dyke, who is a prominent member of the Texas Proud Boys. He lambasted the Southern Poverty Law Center, denying their claim that the Proud Boys are hateful.

“This shouldn’t be a controversy. The Proud Boys is a mainstream men’s organization of conservatives and libertarians that mostly likes to get together to drink beer,” Van Dyke stated. “In contrast, the Southern Poverty Law Center is a group of has-been political mudslingers that haven’t been relevant since they civil rights movement. Their list of “hate groups” is nothing more than a skillful fundraising ploy designed to part fearful people from their money. Since they don’t have many actual hate groups to fight, the work of the SPLC today mostly consists of political mudslinging.”

Minnesota Governor Asking President Trump to Declare Riots a Federal Disaster In Hope of Receiving Bailout Funds

Weren’t they peaceful protestors?

Published

Minnesota Governor Tim Walz is requesting that President Donald Trump declare the recent rounds of race riots in Minneapolis a federal emergency, so that the state may access federal bailout funds intended for communities affected by disasters.

Governor Walz and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey largely stood by idly as race rioters destroyed and damaged more than 700 buildings in the riots, which occurred after the controversial death of George Floyd during a questionable arrest at the hands of the Minneapolis police department. The property damage from the widespread riots is estimated to range in the tens of millions, and Frey is already pushing a federal bailout to repair the damages enabled by his unwillingness to prevent criminality and support of the rioters’ “message.”

Governor Walz referenced the victims of the riots in a statement requesting the bailout, callously ignoring that the victims of the riots were not only victimized by criminal riots, but simply ignored in their hour of need by state and local officials unwilling to confront left-wing criminality in the name of “justice.”

We’re asking our federal partners to step up and help our communities recover, demanded Governor Walz. We need to come together to ensure Minnesotans who were victims of this destruction have access to critical infrastructure they need so they can go to the grocery store, pick up their medication, and live their lives. Together, we will rebuild.

The Governor’s estimate of property damage from the riots is considerably greater than what the mayor estimated, claiming that combined damages from the destruction could cost as much as $500 million.

In the new world of unabated criminality and violent destruction from vicious gangs in Democrat-controlled cities, Democrat officials will always be prepared to come cup in hand to American taxpayers with hopes of funding the repairs of the rioting that they enabled, allowed, and perhaps even tacitly supported. No responsibility or integrity.
