    Sure seems like you missed a few seasons since Colin cancer went rampant.
    comments are numbered so i can respond directly by comment
    1) Nah, the owners were pissed off and mad (except for a few leftwing nutjobs), most were too afraid of pc media to speak out.
    2) It's not Trump's job to mollycoddle NFL players
    3) You rarely see this now. wonder why?
    4) trump did the right thing and handled the situation brilliantly. Owners didn't immediately get heartburn (they only lost some ticket sales and online merchandising) but the networks did when they had to reimburse ad dollars as TV views declined. TV contract renewal is still a few years away. Networks brought the pressure that caused the owners to finally take action. Trump kicked all of their butts with only a few tweets. (pretty cost efficeint method don't u think?)

    #2 He could have this or that
    #3 How did any of this help ?
    Wow, I don’t remember saying #2 or #3 but I do drink from time to time so maybe I was completely intoxicated on that date.

    University of Utah Offers Students Sexual ‘Pleasure Packs’ for Valentine’s Day
    The University of Utah offered its students free “pleasure packs” ahead of Valentine’s Day, which even included condoms, lubricants, and oral dams, as well as a delivery service straight to students’ dorm rooms.

    I heard before that our dorms have bowls full of condoms in the main social areas. Disgusting. And we wonder why 100 fricking million Americans have STDs.

    She is a young (25-ish) right wing political activist as best I can tell.

    She's found a way to monetize playing the conservative victim and just being a **** stirrer. She tries to insert herself into locations and places just to incite reactions from people to make good right wing outrage TV. She's awful and should not be given attention. This cop seemed to call her on her act pretty well while she's badgering people at a Pride parade.



    It doesn't surprise me she receives death threats on twitter and those are indefensible.....but twitter is the worst and that is the platform she's found to garner attention. Any person of a certain amount of fame is likely going to receive death threats and fame is exactly what she's chasing

    I watched the entire video and didn't see any evidence she was harassing or badgering people. Political activist journalists go to protests and events all the time. I was guessing she was probably a mini-Ann Coulter - asking and saying provocative things to get attention and followers. But its not an excuse for assault, death threats, and more.

    I feel the same way about the other side - when they go to right wing events and ask their stupid biased questions, they rightly should be laughed at and made fun of. But nobody should be assaulted and threatened.

    Oh, just like that Acosta fellow on CNN then just on the opposite side of the political spectrum. I agree, folks like that should never be given attention and while I don't condone threats against them, it is sorta understandable, huh?

    But I *can* guess where she learned her methods....all one has to do is watch some of the liberal "reporters" to see the same behavior.

    No, that wasn't IN the video, just referenced by the officer. And can likely be surmised what a camera crew using an INFO WARS watermark is doing

    That's the game in media these days. Unfortunately it's not "good TV" to watch reasonable people from either side discuss the nuances of their positions and that they may see validity in the others' argument they just disagree on how they get there. That doesn't get clicks. That doesn't get retweets. That is much less likely to get shared on a message board with a comment of "the reasonable left makes some valid arguments but I disagree with their assumptions". No, instead it's "LOOK AT THE VIOLENT LEFT AGAIN!". That's exactly what she's going for.

    Nobthats not what the officer was saying. The officer was saying what’s the point, it just causing trouble to be there.

    Well maybe when someone asks you questions you don’t assault them or threaten them?
