Yahoo! Sports Writer Features Minnesota Vikings’ Upcoming LGBTQ Summit

The Minnesota Vikings have gone full circle from the “Purple People Eaters,” the nickname of their brutal defensive front line of the 1960s, to champion the colors of the rainbow. Zach Pereles of Yahoo! Sports relates how the Vikings allowed a has-been former punter to figuratively “blackmail” them into settling a dispute by promising to host an LGBTQ summit at their Eagan, Minnesota headquarters June 21.

Of course we’re not talking about linebackers, guards, backs, tackles and quarterbacks here. We are talking about a pro football team that agreed with former punter and antagonist Chris Kluwe (seen in photo) to host the rainbow event. Kluwe was a nobody punter for the Vikes until he gained notoriety for his same-sex marriage activism. And Pereles didn’t refer to any sort of pressure by Kluwe to get the Vikings to dummy up.

In 2012 Kluwe wrote a vulgarity-laced hate letter to Maryland state assembly delegate Emmett Burns. The lawmaker had spoken out against same-sex marriage, and Kluwe lectured to him that gay people “won’t magically turn you into a lustful cockmonster,” along with other choice words not fit for children to hear. Kluwe also campaigned against California’s Proposition 8 marriage defense amendment, appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and was Grand Marshal of the Twin Cities Pride festival.

The punter was released by Minnesota in 2013 and his pro football career soon ended in Oakland. Under-estimating the deep embarrassment he caused the team, Kluwe claimed he was released by Minnesota because of his activism. In 2014 he threatened to sue the Vikings for being anti-LGBTQ.

Lest the Vikings draw the feared accusation of homophobia, Minnesota is kissing up to Kluwe and his LGBTQ friends. The team is now driving for the goal line of LGBTQ activism by inviting 200 people to the summit, including officials from the other NFL teams, along with people from local colleges and high schools.

Speakers will include Kluwe and Greg Louganis, the former Olympic diving champion. It’s a fundraiser for local and national LGBTQ groups. Chris Hine, of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, wrote it will feature four panels highlighting “how coaches and players can make sports a more welcome environment for LGBTQ athletes.”

Vikings’ COO Kevin Warren aims to make this huddle a recurring event. “We definitely want to make sure this is not a one-time event. I can say that with confidence,” Warren said. The organizers want to promote inclusion, but don’t expect this version of “inclusion” to include Tony Perkins or Dr. Dobson.

In what comes across as a veiled threat, Kluwe said: “We obviously had our issues a while ago, but this is our way of looking forward and trying to figure out how we make sure that we set the stage for that not to happen again.”

Just when you thought the NFL can’t travel any further down the road of PC and social justice activism, you get another dose of reality disproving that. We’ve digressed from the bygone era of John Facenda’s “Headcracker Suite” to the “rainbow suite,” social justice activists disguised as football players forcing the league into a multi-million dollar campaign for prison reform and a has-been quarterback turning the league into a collusion lawsuit circus. All with overwhelming media approval!

SBNation Writer Bemoans Lack of Male Pro Athletes Coming Out of Closet

What the world needs now … are more male homosexual professional athletes. It’s been five years since Jason Collins (in photograph) retired from the NBA and then came out of the closet, but there have been next to none from men’s pro team sports since then, laments a disappointed Jim Buzinski, writer for SBNation and co-founder of OutSports.

A scorer of less than four points per game, Collins attracted little attention in his 12 years of NBA bench-warming. But when he retired and announced his sexual orientation back in 2013, he went straight to the LGBT “hall of fame.” It appeared to Buzinski “as if the sports world — especially in pro male sports leagues — was about to undergo a seismic change in regards to LGBT athletes.”

This was the time when Barack Obama, sports commissioners and NBA coaches dropped everything they were doing and told us they were so proud of Jason. CBS Evening News made Collins its lead story on April 29, 2013. Oprah booked the instant hero. Carmelo Anthony had just won the NBA scoring championship and he didn’t get near the publicity that was lavished upon Collins from the left-stream media.

Also around that same time, Major League Soccer (MLS) had the openly homosexual player in Robbie Rogers, and Britney Griner of the WNBA came out as lesbian (yawn; that’s not news in that league). Michael Sam’s “amazing” story would follow a year later. Buzinski writes, “There was so much LGBT news in sports that a New York Times reporter told me it was becoming an old story and was close to being played out. This assumption has proved to be wrong.”

“Collins’ coming out turned out to be less a herald than an anomaly,” Buzinski bemoans. Collins became “a great advocate for LGBT equality in sports and proved to be a role model for young athletes. … Collins is a pioneer who is still making a difference.” But Buzinski’s idea of progress has not materialized:

“Yet we are no closer to having a critical mass of out male pro athletes than we were before he came out. There are several out WNBA players and women have long been the trailblazers in sports, but for historic and sociological reasons we have long written about, gay female athletes don’t get the attention they deserve. In contrast, an out man in the NFL, NBA, NHL or MLB is still the white whale everyone is pursuing.”

Buzinski says he had been making predictions when the next homosexual athlete in a team sport would come on out, but he’s stopped doing that because no one in the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB and MLS has done it since Sam played in a single NFL exhibition season. This might have something to do with the fact that less than two percent of American males are homosexual and only the elite athletes play at the major league level in any sport.

Nevertheless, Buzinski is convinced that homosexuals exist in the men’s pro leagues; they’re just staying in the closet. He thought that if one athlete came out it would lead others to do the same. On one hand he writes coming out “is fraught with emotion, worry and uncertainty” and adds “an extra layer of being a pro athlete.” An out jock would be subject to more media attention, but it would be positive coverage, writes Buzinski, defeating his own argument.

“There simply is no predicting when the next big-time pro male athlete will come out,” writes a dejected Buzinski. … “I don’t hold out much hope that we will see an out pro male athlete anytime soon, and if it does happen, it’ll be pretty random.” Snagging just one closet jumper, even a backup quarterback holding a clipboard … somebody … would turn Buzinski’s night into day!

Short of a parade of athletes sprinting out of the closet, Buzinski is claiming consolation prizes. All the major sports leagues include sexual orientation in their nondiscrimination policies and office staff from several leagues march in LGBT Pride parades! And there’s more! Half the Major League Baseball scheduled pride nights, and every NHL team had a pride game this year!

Also, the sexual confusion of high school and college athletes is encouraging to Buzinski. He’s really psyched about two homosexual college football players—Kansas State’s Scott Frantz and Arizona’s My-King Johnson. They’ll both be eligible for the NFL draft in a couple or more years! “If either of them are good enough to be drafted, their sexual orientation will have been known years before a team would take them, minimizing the public attention on them being out. It’s the organic way for a pro athlete to come out.”

Buzinski was also encouraged by the Winter Olympics, when homosexuals Gus Kenworthy and Adam Rippon “showed that society is becoming much more accepting of elite athletes being gay. This trend will continue at the Olympics and I hope that future generations will make it a reality in pro team sports. Until then, happy anniversary, Jason Collins.”

Jewish Writer Hertzberg Tells Us of Voltaire’s Warning of Jews are “Deadly to the Human Race”

Jewish Writer Hertzberg Tells Us of Voltaire’s Warning of Jews are “Deadly to the Human Race”

Download

Today Duke had a discussion with British author Andy Hitchcock. They talked about a 50-year-old article in the New York Review of Books written by a Jewish rabbi by the name of Arthur Hertzberg, who reviewed the book The French Enlightenment and the Jews, which tried to make the case that the French Enlightenment giant Voltaire was not an anti-semite. Hertzberg disagreed, quoting Voltaire as saying “The Kaffirs, the Hottentots, and the Negroes of Guinea are much more reasonable and more honest people than your ancestors, the Jews. You have surpassed all nations in impertinent fables, in bad conduct, and in barbarism. You deserve to be punished, for this is your destiny.”

He went on to quote Voltaire as saying about the Jews “They are, all of them, born with raging fanaticism in their hearts, just as the Bretons and the Germans are born with blond hair. I would not be in the least bit surprised if these people would not some day become deadly to the human race.”

‘Nation’ Writer on Russia ‘Hacking’: ‘I’ve Never Seen Media Malpractice Like This’

On Friday, Fox News’s Tucker Carlson interviewed Stephen F. Cohen, a contributing editor at The Nation. Cohen sharply criticized coverage at the Washington Post and the New York Times, and more generally stated that he has “never seen media malpractice” like the establishment press’s year-long effort to breathe life into what he insists has been a completely ginned-up claim that Russia tried to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Given that it has leaned hard-left during its entire existence, it might stun readers here to know that Cohen, who is married to magazine editor Katrina vanden Heuvel, strongly believes, based on what he claims is his own extensive research, that there is no evidence of Russian U.S election influence.

Readers should keep in mind, as they view and digest Cohen’s contentions, that they, if true, completely refute the “fact-checkers” at Politifact, who have decided that “Russian election interference is a ‘made-up story'” is 2017’s “Lie of the Year.”

Politifact, which concedes that “It seems unlikely — though not impossible — that Russia interference changed the outcome of the election,” contends that “one man” — President Donald Trump — “keeps saying it didn’t even happen,” strongly implying that Trump is all alone in his belief. That’s wrong — and Cohen is on Politifact’s side of the aisle.

Carlson began by pointing to the print edition version of a Friday Washington Post story. The print story, which has a different headline (“How Trump’s pursuit of Putin has left the U.S. vulnerable to the Russian threat”) from the online version (“Doubting the intelligence, Trump pursues Putin and leaves a Russian threat unchecked”), has a subhead — “Hacking Democracy” — which assumes facts Cohen contends are not in evidence.

The full video segment from the show is here. The first excerpt which follows begins after Cohen was introduced, and deals with that Washington Post item:

Transcript (bolds are mine throughout this post):

(Snip 1, from 0:28 to 1:47 of full segment)

TUCKER CARLSON: So I’m reading the Washington Post today, which is the Jeff Bezos publication. And right on the front page, there’s a piece about Russia. And the subhead says here, “Hacking Democracy,” as if it is a known and universally accepted fact that our democracy was, quote, “hacked.”

Do we know that?

STEPHEN COHEN: We do not. It’s been alleged. Originally it was said that 17 intelligence agencies made that finding. Turned out it was a few people in a couple intelligence agencies.

If you read on in the Washington Post story in the first paragraph, they go back to this claim that it’s the consensus of intelligence agencies. So it’s simply not true.

I have to say that in addition to being a professor, for a long time I was also a paid consultant of a major American television network. I admire mainstream media. I learned a lot. But I have never seen media malpractice like this before in my life.

What that constitutes is essentially making allegations for which there is no verified facts, information, or evidence, and then basing your commentary on it.

So briefly put, it said that somehow Trump has been compromised by Putin, the leader of Russia. Then, when Trump does diplomacy with Putin, the New York Times literally calls it “treason.” I haven’t seen anything like this before.

The next video below contains two snips. In the first, Cohen reacts to the press’s heavy reliance on leaks in the absence of substance, and notes the heavy irony in the left completely switching sides on the intelligence agencies’ presumptive credibility. In the second, Carlson directly asks Cohen if he seen any evidence of Russian attempts to influence the 2016 election:

Transcript:

(Snip 2, from 2:12 to 2:35 of full segment)

COHEN: … A leaker, by definition, has a political agenda. We’d agree on that, right?

CARLSON: Yes, of course.

COHEN: You may not be old enough to remember, but I remember when the media, and particularly the liberal media, was deeply suspicious of intelligence agency sources.

CARLSON: Yes.

COHEN: And now we have a situation where they seem to be the Holy Writ. If they whisper it to you on the telephone, it’s true, and you print it.

(Snip 3, from 3:20 to 3:48)

CARLSON: … Do we have and have you seen any evidence at all that the Russian government materially affected the outcome of the 2016 election?

COHEN: I have heard you say repeatedly there is no evidence. I’ve looked harder than you have. I’ve looked here in America, but I also have looked in Moscow. I mean, when I am there, as people I know, and yes, I confess, I do know people who are or have been Russian intelligence agents. I haven’t found anybody in Moscow who believes this story.

Cohen has been consistently critical of media conduct and the Russian narrative for months. Headlines at a few of his recent columns at The Nation include the following:

  • December 12 — “Media Malpractice Is Criminalizing Better Relations With Russia”
  • November 27 — “Russia Is Not the ‘No. 1 Threat’—or Even Among the Top 5”
  • November 15 — “‘Russiagate’ Zealots (Mainly Democrats) Have Become a Major Threat to US National Security”

How utterly fascinating it is that a longtime leftist fellow traveler at one of its furthest-left publications completely disputes the Washington Post’s “Hacking Democracy” assumption, and insists, in the face of Politifact’s contention that there is “a mountain of evidence” supporting Russia’s alleged attempts to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election, that there is none.
