    Members of the Philadelphia Eagles were blasted Monday after several players claimed they would skip the traditional meet-and-greet with the President of the United States.
    Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins, defensive end Chris Long, and wide receiver Torrey Smith were all slammed for saying they would likely opt out of their meeting with President Trump.

    If these three players went, they could speak to Trump about their concerns, actually confront the issues with the President, and possibly make a difference.  I suspect they are too afraid, so they will run and hide.

    Go there and make a statement!

    Million dollar babies throwing a tantrum, to no end, to no purpose.

    @vinny Same here. Why should anyone on that team who loathes Trump should go to the WH and deal with his crap?

    They shouldn’t lower themselves just because of some stupid tradition. True fans will still support them if they don’t go and as much as Trumpers think they could use it against the team for whatever reason, most fans won’t care if they went to the white house, mcodonalds, wherever. They are just happy their team won

    Fox News legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano said he hopes President Donald Trump allows the Schiff FISA memo to be released and thinks it will drive the intelligence community crazy.

    “I hope he releases it because it will show who’s spinning, who’s exaggerating,” Napolitano said on Fox & Friends Tuesday. “It will also show … raw intelligence. There’s everything in there.

    “That will send the intelligence community through the roof,” he added. “Because this stuff is never ever made public.”

    Release the Memo!

    What was I thinking?  Negotiation?  Confrontation? (Try the online dictionary for those polysyllabic words.) Who changes these millionaire crybaby’s diapers?  It would be a golden opportunity to make a statement, but only if you have the courage to be an icon of the so called ‘Resistance’, like Colon Kaepernick.

    This is just disturbing. I know hypocrisy can be overrated at times, since humans are so layered there are likely going to be times where we ALL act in a slightly hypocritical manner… BUT if there was ever a legitimate time to use the word “hypocrite” in its purest and grossest manner, this is that time. Fuck “Andi Dier,” this creepy slimebag hypocrite.

    Also, what do you all think of the resurfaced Howard Stern interview with Quentin Tarantino in which the latter defends Roman Polanski.

    I posted a video below where Philip DeFranco breaks it down. He’s finishes discussing Tarantino’s pedophilia apologist comments as well as him almost getting Uma Thurman killed (yeah I know she recently forgave him on Instagram) in an unsafe car during the filming of Kill Bill around the 5 minute mark. I really LOVE Defranco’s take on the creepy Tarantino comments, “I personally think that if you’re someone defending a grown-ass adult fucking children, let alone fucking a child that they then plied with booze and drugs, you’re garbage and I think you need to be thrown out.”

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2ybZK59uPg

    For those who defend Polanski by saying “but there might have been some misconduct from the prosecution” or “but she eventually forgave him” you can seriously go straight to hell. Anyone who uses those as excuses for what Polanski did are sick human beings in my book.

    Quentin Tarantino, James Toback, Woody Allen, and Roman Polanski are all gross pieces of shit, as are any and all of their truly ignorant and depraved apologists/defenders. I have ZERO tolerance for those crazy people.

    I also found a great quote by A. O. Scott in the New York Times that sums up my feelings about shitty artists and their art perfectly.

    A. O. Scott “The separation of art and artist is proclaimed – rather desperately, it seems to me – as if it were a philosophical principle, rather than a cultural habit buttressed by shopworn academic dogma.”

    Here’s the article where he uses the quote. It is an interesting read in my opinion. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/31/movies/woody-allen.html

    I hate Tarantino as much as I hate Polanski so it didn’t shock me

    I’m pretty sure what this boils down to is this: They didn’t want to be around a racist, dumb, piece of shit. I don’t blame them.

    A candidate in the European elections (Paul Weston) has been arrested after making a speech quoting from a book by Winston Churchill about Islam.

    Here is the quote:

    Churchill saw the temporal and the eternal tainted by their belief system. “A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity,” he wrote.
    The second-class status of women also grated at the young officer. “The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men,” he noted.
    “Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyzes the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world”  “Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step, and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it (Islam) has vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.”

    Churchill’s quotations are from “The River War,” Volume II, pages 248-250, published by Longmans, Green & Company, 1899

    Canadian PM Trudeau: Sharia law is compatible with democracy

    The Quran states that “Men are caretakers of women… As for women of whom you fear rebellion, convince them, and leave them apart in beds, and beat them (lightly without causing injury)…” (Quran 4:34).  Well, at least they know how to deal with feminists.  LOL

    The attitude towards LGBTs is even more disturbing:

    In a previous article, the ACD (American Center for Democracy) exposed a video on Muslim religious leaders’ belief that LGBT individuals should be executed.

    This kind of attitude is hardly compatible with democracy.  Justin Trudeau has lost his mind.
