"Last night, I saw Jonathan turley on Fox News. Talk about make a very important point. That if Martin Luther King Jr. was alive today, the Canadian prime minister would have him arrested, he'd have him arrested. You can't stand up for your freedom. You're not allowed to stand up for what you believe in. You're not allowed to stand up for this for things like no mandates and if you do, we're going to take away your livelihood. We're going to take away your bank accounts? This isn't politics. This is evil. This is evil stuff and you better believe the left is watching what happens and how this all plays out in Canada. Because they want to emulate what dictator Trudeau is doing.

Majority of Americans Want Biden to Consider 'All Possible Nominees' for Supreme Court Vacancy

"In the meantime, I want to report on this story. You know that the president had promised that he would appoint a female and a black female at that to the Supreme Court. According to a new survey at a Rasmussen, Americans expect them to do that 59% of Americans expect them to do that. But they're not really happy about it. And I'll tell you whether or not that happy about it. Because since when did your gender or your race matter more than your intellect and your capability? This is still the United States of America. And I realize in this woke movement that's in part funded by the likes of super pacs from billionaires that want to spend a $125 million on 2022. This is the problem, right? You've got all this money that's force feeding a set of values and so then it becomes all about your race, your gender, as opposed to your capability, your intellect, et cetera. And so Americans don't like this. Everyday Americans are like, but wait a second. None of that should matter, right? Going back to the words of Martin Luther King Jr., we really should be a colorblind society. We don't want to see race or gender first. We want to see who someone is as a person and yet it's like all you can see because they're making it that way so much that the person that's going to be appointed to the Supreme Court has to be female and has to be black. There's something really, I think just off putting about all of

Or do you feel that there are still too many barriers to overcoming? Colonization that still remain. Let us know what you're thinking. On this day, set aside to honor doctor king. Jonah discussion, one 809 9 6 two 8 four 8. Before we went to break, we were chatting with Suzanne, harjo and she was sharing her experience working to make MLK day a federal holiday only a federal holiday since 1986, so I can still remember my own life before that time when it was not a federal holiday. I'd like to bring in Darius Lee Smith into our conversation. He's a director of Denver's anti discrimination office. Darius, what are you thinking about today? MLK day, where are you at? What's your thought? Wow. It's so impressive to hear miss harjo's history lesson. And I was born in 68. So the day after he was assassinated, I was one. I had just turned one. Action was born in 67. He was assassinated in 68. And it was interesting because when I came to as an undergrad student in the late 80s, I remember Arizona being the last state to recognize Martin Luther King junior as a national holiday. And I'm just reflecting on her words, what we're talking about and really just proudly to say that I'm a bit a factor of the civil rights movement. I have this amazing job in Denver, which I've been doing for 18 years. As the director of the Denver antidiscrimination office, and again, I have the opportunity to serve in that position because that was one of the things that Martin Luther King Jr. and people like Hank Adams. They were demanding a seat at the table. And in a lot of ways, I feel that that's what I do. I have a seat at the table and I get to be an activist and an advocate and a civil just a civil servant around civil rights and social justice and I'm so proud of Martin's became junior in this day. So thank you. Well, thank you, Darius, for explaining and sharing that background. You mentioned your amazing job. Tell us more about your amazing job. How did you get started doing the work you do now? So Denver has an agency called the agency for human rights and community partnerships. And in 1990s, they created the Denver, the city council created the Denver anti discrimination office. And I believe I'm the second director. I think we're just over 30 years past that and in addition to that in 2008, the city of Denver created these commissions. And two of the commissions that I had the pleasure of serving as the staff liaison, we were creating to give voice to African American folks in Denver as well as American Indians. And so I've been doing the American Indian commission for beginning so 15 years and 6 years. I've been staff lays on for the African American commission. So it's just I was so amazing because that's my background. I strongly identify as Navajo and black and it just feels so rewarding to have a job to get aid to do the type of work I do. And I'm in a really good situation. And Darius, I know you grew up primarily in Denver currently, you're on a little weekend holiday in Phoenix, but as a child, I understand you spent summers among family in loop, Arizona. And I had an uncle from one of my great ants, she married a Navajo. In fact, I think they met at that old boarding school there. But let me just say loop Arizona, that's the res. Red dirt and sage as far as the eye can see. And I'm interested Darius. What unique perspectives do you offer to both groups, Native American and African American as a person who shares both cultures and experiences? Great question. It was very unfortunate to grow up with family in Navajo country that were very supportive of us being black. And when I say us, I have four siblings and it's I think it was made easy for us because we were celebrated because my brother and I, my sisters, we were all great athletes. And when we would take trips to loop and to the city, western side of it was so important for me to understand what Indian country looked like. And I think for me, also, I understood what poverty, as well as what it looked like in Denver and other major cities. And so I think early on, I kind of had a firsthand experience about what poverty looked like, but also what cultural look like in terms of like language and just the proudness of being around Navajo people and then during the school year when I was around. I grew up in an all black neighborhood in Denver. And being there, I was also really uplifted and supported by my black coaches who really encouraged me to celebrate maybe in Navajo me being American Indian. And I think it was heavily supported by, again, my community to really explore and express my Navajo identity. Darius, you mentioned the comparing and contrasting the urban poverty that you saw up in Denver versus the rural poverty that you experienced on the Navajo Nation in Arizona and I always find it fascinating how those two different types of poverty are very different in many ways similar but different. Could you explain a little bit more depth, how they compare and contrast? Yes. I like to use the story of when we would come to loop our to the city. And we would go back at the end of the summer. We would it down with commodity food. So.

USA Today Faces Backlash, Deletes Series of Tweets Which 'Normalizes' Pedophilia

"USA Today which used to be a respectable publication came out with an article recently and the title was that they believe that pedophiles are misunderstood. They wrote an entire article, by the way, on the day of child sex trafficking awareness day. Let's just be clear. The day that you're supposed to talk about child sex trafficking, they say that pedophiles are misunderstood. Could you imagine if USA Today on Martin Luther King Jr. day said that racists were misunderstood? Or on Juneteenth? USA Today was lamb blasted. This is on the blaze dot com for publishing an article framing pedophilia as misunderstood. Swift backlash caused the publication to delete tweets promoting the article, which was originally titled quote when the public keeps getting wrong about pedophilia. The complicated research behind pedophilia. Continued by saying, pedophilia is viewed as among the most horrifying social ills. But scientists who study the sexual disorder say that it is also among the miss most misunderstood. When most of the public thinks a pedophilia they assume it's synonymous with child abuse. USA Today researcher says, it's actually when we study pedophilia, we say that term describes an attraction, not an action, and use it interchangeably with abuse that fuels misperceptions. USA Today was forced to delete their Twitter thread. Yeah, I don't know if USA Today was reading the room correctly. But platforming like pro pedophile arguments, don't think the country's there. Hopefully not yet. USA Today tweeted out, quote, we think we know what a pedophile is. There's a lot of misunderstanding. Or there's a lot we're misunderstanding. USA Today said, quote, a pedophile is an adult who is sexually attracted to children, but not all pedophiles abuse kids, and some whose secretion abuse kids are not pedophiles.

"Of the school board parents, speaking out against sexually explicit books in their kids schools, this was a drum beat that spread like wildfire everybody. This last year. And I would never seen anything like it. It was special and it still happening. Play cut 68. Jasper wasn't even my boyfriend, just this dude. I did some hacking with once in a while. Not in my league at all, but he had a big head toward the door appearing through the window at the boy. His pants around his ankles squeezed between April straddled legs as she lay on top of a teacher's desk. I gripped his arms and flipped him around, pushing him against the wall. His eyes widened, mouth dropping, hey, what are you doing? He chuckled nervously. I took a deep breath before dropping on my shaky knees, the ground cold. Now, I want to apologize for playing that sexually explicit stuff because if you send your child to public school, you are knowingly exposing them to pornography and propaganda. At this point. But then cut 67, I started to show up at school board meetings. I tried to participate the best I could. Like, cut 67, play whatever they have. Good evening. I'm in Arizona taxpayer and employer of over a hundred people in this state. I'm disgusted that you are lying to the citizens of this state and the people that pay your salaries. You say critical race theory is not in the school district and then moments later you have someone come up and use that word equity. Just last week, the CU SD summer equity symposium was held. And it was, quote, to create systemic change, change your leadership thinking. How about addressing imply it implicit bias for student excellence? If you know anything, just a little bit about where these ideas and these phrases come from, you know that this student suffers stomping on the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr..

That was August 11th of 1963, just 17 days before Martin Luther King Jr. gave his I have a dream speech. And so I asked my father, why would you come then? You know, it was a bad time for us and because this is where the jobs were. And I said, yeah, but you came at the height of the civil rights movement. He said, this is where opportunities were. He came with, took any job he could find, but himself through school started as American dreamer. Now he's comfortably retired, and by the way, this house that he's in.

COINTELPRO: The Counterintelligence Program of the FBI

"COINTELPRO was a series of FBI projects that were covert and honestly illegal projects conducted by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation. Aimed at surveilling infiltrating discrediting and disrupting domestic American political organizations. COINTELPRO went from 1956 to 1971. And some of their targets were the Nation of Islam was Martin Luther King Jr.'s organization, the southern pastor leadership conference or whatever the name was. And the only reason we ever learned about COINTELPRO. The only reason we were able ever able to get to the bottom of pros, operations. Was not because of some cross examination from Congress, was not because of a lawsuit. It was about something that I don't support, which was breaking and entering into a federal building. So during the famous Muhammad Ali Frazier fight, which was one of the most watched sporting events to date, on March 8th, 1971, a group of activists broke into the small two man office at the Federal Bureau of Investigation in media, Pennsylvania. They stole more than 1000 FBI documents that revealed years of systematic wiretapping, infiltration and media manipulation designed to suppress dissent. The citizens commissioned to investigate the Federal Bureau of Investigation. As the group called itself, forced its way in at night with a crowbar while much of the country was watching the Muhammad Ali Frazier fight. When agents arrived for work the next morning, they found the cabinets virtually empty virtually emptied, within a few weeks the documents began to show up, mailed anonymously in Manila envelopes with no return address newsrooms of major American newspapers. From that point forward after 1971, COINTELPRO was sunsetted and the government, the federal government's effort to wiretap an infiltrate American political organizations seemingly

What could be more demeaning. What could be so contrary to Judeo Christian values?

Richard Delgado jeans Stefan Sick and D a N D. Angelo for whom races everywhere and everything as his racism. As the antidote to this dehumanizing world. You live in quotes Dr Wyatt T. Walker, who was very close to representative Excuse me to Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. And in his essay in 2015 when he wrote was Steve Kalinsky. Steve Kalinsky. Walker stated. Today. Too many remedies such as critical race theory, the increasingly fashionable post Marxist postmodernists approach. It analyzes society has institutional group power structures. Rather than on spiritual or 1 to 1 human level are taking us in the wrong direction. Separating even schoolchildren into explicit racial groups. And emphasizing differences instead of similarities. Unlike Dr King's vision of judging people by the content of their character, rather than the color of their skin. Walkers. Views of civil rights were rightly based on religious values, humanism, not Marxism and critical race theory. The roots of critical race theory are planted in entirely different intellectual soil. Walker out Begins with blocks with each person assigned to an identity or economic bloc, as in Marxism. Yes, says percent Professor as in Marxism. That is an Americanism. That's what Mark Levin understands so well, especially given previous works of his such as rediscovering Americanism. American marks and is quintessentially UN American. People in America professing this noxious junk, maybe Americans in terms of citizenship. With all the rights and liberties and protections afforded thereof.

"martin luther king jr." Discussed on Kottke Ride Home

"A new documentary out today called. Mlk fbi which traces the ways in which the fbi was surveilling. Martin luther king junior towards the end of his life as well as other black activists in an attempt to tamp down the civil rights movements directed by legendary filmmaker sam pollard. This documentary is based on a nineteen eighty one book by historian david garrow as well as documents released by the national archives in two thousand seventeen and two thousand eighteen quoting the atlantic. Mlk fbi arrows attempts to stifle the civil rights movement through coordinated efforts to spy on king with the hope of discrediting his righteous public image with king as with many black activists since the beginning of the twentieth century. The fbi surveillance wasn't an isolated obsession. It was part of a long running effort to keep black americans from acquiring institutional power. Pohlad told me the film traces. Exactly how the surveillance of king started how it was conducted and the effects it had on his life end quote using tons of archival footage and interviews with firsthand witnesses. The film illustrates how. Fbi's surveillance of black americans began as part of fbi director. Jaeger hoover's obsession with rooting out. Communism <unk> believing black people to be more susceptible to political manipulation as their efforts became more focused specifically on martin luther king junior and his growing influence. The fbi sought to expose his extramarital affairs as a way of discrediting him to the public and his followers but director sample are noted to npr's fresh air quote would hoover didn't bank on was back in the sixties. The press did not take the bait. They didn't reveal the personal lives of these public figures. They didn't do with john kennedy. They didn't do with others and they didn't do it. With dr king and quotes and while this documentary serves as a needed reminder. That martin luther king junior was not universally revered in his time there could be wearing that paints too negative a picture of him by including personal details like the affairs he had producer. Benjamin heddon said a our approach however quote he wouldn't be d- mythology someone he would simply be portraying him with responsibility and sympathy the way he would subject in his documentaries who was not known to the wider public and quotes and hannah georgia's said in the atlantic quote. Mlk fbi offers an important corrective to prevailing myths about king and his principles of nonviolent resistance. Which were not in fact. Widely embraced as my colleague. Van newkirk wrote in two thousand eighteen hostility toward the civil rights. Movement turned into a cherry. Pick celebration of the revolutions victories over segregation in over easily caricatured gap toothed bigots in the south and quotes and continuing georgia's. The reality was that opposition to king into the racial progress. He symbolized was restricted by region or by political affiliation diplomats and republicans alike had turned against king by his later years especially after he voiced objection to the vietnam war. It's impossible to separate the fbi's decades long commitment to tracking black activists from its relative failure to address the credible threats posed by white nationalists including those that surfaced with last week's deadly attack on the capital the fbi surveilling king and using dubious reasoning to do so isn't altogether shocking for much of the country's history sabotaging black rebellion by any means necessary has been integral to preserving white political power. The new and still contested development is finally accepting black people as active participants in american democracy and quotes.

"So hopefully I done my part in what John catch. Maty dish owner and operator of Red Apple Media's W. A. B. C and 107.1 FM had asked us to do. Is to bring light to the life and times of Martin Luther King Junior on this The national holiday in his honor. And I think I've done so in a manner in which you learned a hell of a lot you might not have known because I lived through it. And more importantly, we didn't get all wrapped up into the jargon of if he was still alive. This is what Martin Luther King Jr would have thought said or done. I don't know of anyone out there who's a soothsayer, a swami or a tea? Leave reader who could have known any of that. But it's been a great day so far, and it will continue on and you will learn quite a bit about Martin Luther King Jr Talk radio for New York and all of America. 1071. W L I. R FM, Hampton Bays and You may be concerns about inaugural security. I'm rich Dennis and Fox News. The FBI is conducting rigorous background checks into National Guard members deploying to the nation's capital to provide security for Wednesday's inauguration. Defense officials are worried about some type of insider attack by service members involved in securing President elect Joe Biden's inauguration. This concern has the FBI vetting all 25,000 National Guard troops coming to the U. S. Capitol for the event. This massive undertaking highlighting security concerns that have gripped Washington since the January 6th insurrection. Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy says he's seen no evidence. It's of any threats, adding the vetting hasn't flagged any issues. Fox's Jackie Baniyas much of Washington, D. C is locked down ahead of this week's inaugural activities. Heightened security led to a brief lockdown of the U. S. Capitol building today after a fire was reported near the complex. Officials say that fire was in a homeless camp and posed no threat. President Trump's expected to grant up to 100 pardons and commutations before leaving the White House. Sources tell Fox News. A large batch could come tomorrow.

Wikileaks founder Julian Hassan's not expected to get a pardon is still unclear whether former Trump advisor Steve Bannon, charged in a fraud probe will get a reprieve. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham has said the president should not give pardons to those who stormed the U. S. Capitol.

Just understand Sleeve Onyx. It's like the old Yvonne it It is a language that I have created and developed in 30 years. Broadcasting in talk radio. Most of it here at W. A. B.

And over at AM 9 70 the ends of for four years doing am Dr NPM Driving many of you. You said what happened to you? I've never heard you on the radio again when you left W A. B. C Can you imagine that? And they said, Oh, you're back. Yep. I'm back in my place to be w. A B. C And my former broadcasting is to connect you with the here and now to what has transpired in the past. Because history keeps repeating itself. I know this was the most important election of all time. We've never had rioting and insurrection like we've had in the takeover of the capital recently, and with the black lives matter, and TIF marches, riots, looting that took place in the summer. You couldn't be More hopelessly wrong about that, especially if you personally lived through the sixties and the seventies. But let me break another bubble as we celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr here today on W A. B C. This myth about the Kennedy Theeighties of Camelot. We've seen a lot of that dissipate over the years because we recognize that like any human beings, JFK, RFK had flaws. Now. Unfortunately, JFK was first to be assassinated. And then Martin Luther King Jr and then RFK. All three of them are iconic figures in the history of America. Through the fifties and the sixties. Until they departed this plane because of assassination. But they have quite the legacy. Fact, a lot of people don't know that RFK was counsel to the committee to investigate communism in America. Right. He was a key proponent. He was no Jill McCarthy or Roy Cohen, who became the number one go to guy for the growing power of Donald Trump. At some point, they sure Comey's under Every sofa in every house in America, but he was in And you know, I don't know if many of you know That they were not friends with Martin Luther King Jr at all. Now JFK who had been a congressman in Massachusetts and groomed by his father. Become the U. S senator and then eventually the president of the United States, he wrote the book profiles in courage. About how guys had broken from segregation. Elice tendencies like Sam Houston in Texas, right. The leader of Texas is independent, strive against Mexico and Santa Anna. He was featured. Another person was featured. He won a Pulitzer Prize for that, even though JFK didn't write the book. His daddy. Had somebody else write it and JFK got all the credits because this was part of the plan. Help make him the president of the United States. Now, As senator of Massachusetts, you would think he leaned lust right? He certainly wasn't a conservative. 1957 while shitting in the Senate. As a Democrat, he voted against Eisenhower's Civil Rights Act 1957. He voted with the segregation of lists. From the South, Strong Thurman and mostly Democrats at that time, because say that was a Democratic stronghold. And why did JFK vote against Eisenhower this civil rights act because he didn't want to anger Those who believed in segregation in the south because he was seeking the 1960 nomination. So it wasn't about You know, equality for blacks, it was all about becoming president. All about becoming president. And then all of a sudden, in October of that year, he was running against Vice President Nixon. And by the way, Vice President Nixon had a great relationship with Martin Luther King Jr he met with Martin Luther King Jr at the White House. They often times would have phone conferences because, remember the Republican Party at that time was the party of Civil Rights. James Brown. That's right. I got ants in my pants, and I need to dance if you have a red jet or have any magazine. He was beloved by Republicans. He was a Republican. Then you had at that particular time. Jackie Robinson, who was the iconic figure he was a Rockefeller Republican. So the Republicans were the party of integration. Democrats with a party of segregation. So this is what happened right before the election. This is October on month before the election with Vice President Richard Nixon. Martin Luther King Jr. Is dragged to jail on a trumped up traffic charge, enjoyed you, and they wouldn't release him. And his wife at the time, Corretta Scott King was pregnant. And J. F case advisor said. Call Corretta Scott King, ask her how she's doing. What can you do to try to extricate Her husband, Martin Luther King Jr from jail. And he received a tremendous amount of attention. RFK, his campaign manager, advisers, soon to become attorney general had suggested he not call Corretta Scott King. You write down anywhere in the history books? No, of course not. Of course, now is he aged Camelot? How dare you say that? The problem is Vice President Nixon did not also call for some reason he who had had regular communication when Martin Luther King Jr did not call Coretta Scott King. Find out how Martin was doing in jail and what he could do his vice president and to try to move up the legal process and get him released from jail, if nothing more than on bail, And that was the story. It was carried throughout the black community in the south, where they had obviously registered voters who would normally vote Republican. They would've voted for Nixon as he had voted for Eisenhower and Nixon twice before, and this time, some of them broke ranks. And voted for JFK. Now JFK won the election for president by the mirror stuff majority such than 1%. When you bisected it and dissected it, it was because he come or of the black vote. Richard Nixon would have become president of the United States. Now you would have thought, right? JFK with a great speech upon his inauguration. What can you do for your country? Would have had my Luther King Jr invited right? He had other civil rights leaders invited In the mountain, not Martin, Lucy King Jr. He was on the outside looking in. In fact, JFK refused to allow Sammy Davis Jr. A lifetime Democrat, to perform at his inauguration because Sammy Davis Jr had married the white actress Mai Brit. What happened to the age of Camelot to, huh? And there's more. My name is 1 808 for a W A B. C. That's 1 808 489222. Remember that famous speech famous of all famous speeches and Martin Luther King Jr gave which is.

B C and 107.1 FM, which covers the eastern part of Long Island, John Catsimatidis, our owner and operator, has said today all the programming should focus around. Celebrating the life and times and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. Because it is the federal holiday Martin Luther King Jr Day and we are going to do that. But one thing I will not do. It's what I have heard on so much of talk radio and talk television. And I guess it's because a lot of people really never studied the life and times of Martin Luther King Jr. Just maybe on the peripheral side. But if I hear another question, what do you think Martin Luther King Jr would have thought? Excuse me. He was assassinated Back in 1968 in Memphis. You know how many years later? It is. What would you have thought of black lives matter? Well, he had a lot to say about challenges and insurrections black civil rights groups in 1966 2 years before he died. That's somewhat had a manifesto similar to Black lines, Man and now So we can look at what he actually did in his life in times. Unless you're a swami or a suit, Say, Errol, you're able to read the tea leaves. Why do you ask a question of what do you think? The doctor Martin Luther King Jr would have done what do you think he would have said about today? What do you think he would have thought? One thing in the many guests that we will bring to the airways today, I can assure you they will not be like some of those that I have heard not gonna mention which programs on TV and radio had them. But bombastic as these guests were, I was with Martin Luther King Jr I marched with Martin Luther King Jr In fact, I marched across the Pettus Bridge..

In high intelligence. Knox county had the populist population of around three out thirty thousand people and also sits near the tennessee border all right. The census of two thousand the population there was thirty. One thousand seven hundred ninety five. People don't think that is gaining too much over the last twenty years. The racial makeup of the county is ninety. Eight percent white point eight percent black and point two five native american. The medium income for a house in the county was eighteen. Thousand in the medium income for a family was twenty. Three thousand males had a median income of twenty four thousand versus eighteen thousand for females about twenty nine percent of families and thirty four percent of the population were below the poverty line including forty two percent of those under the age of eighteen and twenty nine percent of those age. Sixty five or over old even gets any getting better. The kelly has been strongly republican since the civil war. I'm the only democrat to carry. Knox county since then had been linden. Johnson's when you won everything humanly possible. Nineteen sixty four is fourth presidential election and johnson. Of course was you know.

Were taking a look at the way they voted. We're taking a look at the poverty line. We're taking a look at the racial makeup and we're coming to the conclusion that knocks kelly poor white trash. Okay okay and again. I'm quite sure that those kentucky basketball players are wringing their hands about the idiots knox county feel that the team is disrespecting the flag disrespecting the military and disrespecting the country when they kneel during the national anthem. I wonder how many of those fucking idiots or saying the same tune on wednesday when people were breaking into the capital and threatening the lives of their elected officials. Just wondering just wondering let me see then start there oh kentucky you are just a you two barrel laughs this week. Kentucky republican senator president clinton crime during the speech over uk players kneeling during the anthem. He cried said quitting with you on the senate floor robber steamers. Shed tears on the senate floor monday afternoon. He gave a speech responding to university of kentucky basketball players kneeling during the national anthem over the weekend. So emotional he was so torn. he expressed the hurt. He felt at the pair of an active military member in the nephew of a korean war. Combat veteran both of whom he said are symbolized by the american flag. Now stivers did not specifically named duckie players said quote when a group of young men got out on the basketball court and kneeled. That's protected speech. Was it at the right place. The right time that's debatable. no now jackass. It wasn't available. When would you rather have them new. I mean because after all for things to get changed not just decided in this country but really part of the world that we live in any part of this planet that we live in the only way that change because we we have our oppressors. Feel uncomfortable you see if our oppressors feel comfortable then less lightly they are going to change things so what we need to do. What what we both choked up there what we need to do to go ahead and try to change that by making them feel uncomfortable to the point where they need to change it so they will not be uncomfortable anymore. That's the way things go robert. If you read a history book maybe you would find that l. Become liberated from england becoming want them to feel uncomfortable. We didn't elaborate from england because the founding fathers were afraid of making king george feel uncomfortable taxation without representation. Man come on now. We became a free country because we were making the british feel uncomfortable. We were waiting around for those folks changes in this country. Changes in the world. Come along because we wanna make those who are pressing us feel uncomfortable. He roberts feeling comfortable right there. Okay let's talk about what we can do about. You know. police not whipping are asked for no reason. Maybe we can now talk about the conditions in our communities to make them better because now robert is feeling comfortable. Those idiots nuts kelly feeling comfortable. Those assets in laurel kelly feeling comfortable now is a great time for us to go ahead and discuss these things and i'm quite sure with them. Feeling comfortable about the w much more amicable to change their mind and change her opinions. Did you do he then. Read this clown. Read a letter written by his uncle. During the korean war he said people have died for this country. They have died to allow young men to go out on the floor and have the opportunity to play sports and we speak there and speak their mine. You know what else there robert you know what else people have died for. Black people poor people. Brown people people of oppression. People have also died for the betterment of this country people have died fighting the war of discrimination and oppression and segregation at home. Just what we didn't have to go over to black folks if you take a look at the history black folk didn't have to do over to another country folk have to go to korea black folk didn after vietnam black folk death over the german the be killed in war in the battle. No problem you hit white folks. Had white marriage is doing that right here. I mean shit. Back in the fifties and the sixties if you lived in alabama mississippi of you lifted louisiana and texas if you lived in new york city if you lived in washington. Dc lifted. virginia. If you lived anywhere this country and if you weren't black and you wanted to get alleged or you wanted to get killed or you want to get murdered by a white person too but very simple you go ahead and you might say hello to a white woman or you might go ahead and move into a neighborhood or you might try to go ahead and try to get into a high school or white college or university sit. There were many ways black. Vote to be murdered by white folks trying to better this country then go overseas and fight for a right or fight for someone else but fight for another country. Isn't that to do that if you were black. So yeah robert guess what just much your grandfather. Just as much as your relatives went over to a war. The fight for this country in risk their lives.

Look if you don't wanna wear your merchandise finding america's no law saying that You have to support these guys. Where bertrand does i get it. So you know you wanna go. You wanna go that route. Make yourself look stupid by burning shit on on not social media or you want to go out there and you know express your displeasure about an athlete or a team or a coach allowing players to go ahead and exercising first amendment rights. If you wanna go ahead and do them bullshit. Fine almost arrest you for. But they'll they'll sit there and talk about mr superamerica captain america over here and doing some stupid shit like that. When there's many people need who could use the clothing that you're burning stupid so lower laurel. Kelly sits near the tennessee border at the population of roughly sixty thousand people now at the census of twenty ten in laurel county was ninety seven percent white Point three percent black or point seven percent black point three percent native american so the overwhelming majority of law county is white which you know that kind of a answered a few questions. The medium income for a household in the county twenty seven thousand with the medium for a family The family medium with thirty one thousand males the medium income of twenty seven thousand versus one thousand nine thousand for females and they'll seventeen or eighteen percent of families and twenty one percent of the population were below the poverty line including twenty eight or twenty nine percent of those under the age of eighteen and twenty percent of those age. Sixty five or over. So looks to me from taking a look at the demographics and i'm taking a look at the medium income and i'm taking a look at the poverty line bowl. County is a county of poor white trash so here we go so surprise surprise they would be stupid enough to be sitting there still under the delusion. Meant that yell kneeling. Black athletes kneeling is a sign of disrespect of the military in the american flag. Surprise prize. that they would feel that way. Wendell's world is sports. i'm your host one. The wall glad that you could be with us. The dust county fiscal court also staged a protest of the basketball team for kneeling on saturday. In florida sign. They signed a unanimous resolution demanding that taxpayer payer funds allocated to the university of kentucky elsewhere. This is what judge executive mike. Mitchell told the tribune. The university of kentucky received millions and millions of dollars every year of hardworking kentucky taxpayer money taxpayers money. I think they need to be held accountable for their actions. If they can't manage it no better than that. What what what what what are you talking about. What the fuck are you talking about the. Do you realize how important it is for the only kentucky basketball team but the kentucky football team and other sports in general but especially we're speaking about our region like kentucky. Do you know how important it is for the university of kentucky basketball team to be relevant to be good to be dominant d. Do you know how important it is to that university. You do realize or maybe you don't bet when will a team of importance in the community in a in a city light. That is good and his rocking in his role. Take for instance when kentucky is zero rant high in the country of the basketball team and the referee is sold out. And they're getting on espn and they're getting our cbs. They're making the tournament and they're doing all these type of things. Do you know how much of a positive that is for the university of kentucky. The school itself. Do you realize how much more financially advantaged they are when the kentucky basketball team has rolling and doing well. Do you know how well enrollment goes up when the kentucky basketball team is doing well. Do you realize how important that is. Do you realize if the university of kentucky in lexington kentucky you realize that that university is strong that university of bringing in money. That university of health is healthy. How helps the area how it helps the community. How would help the city. What in kentucky going strong in lexington kentucky is doing well financially doing well because of the university of kentucky mainly because of the university of the basketball team do you know how this spreads outside of lexington and helps the entire state of kentucky. Do us realized that. Did you understand that. I don't know if you do or not because you wanna make such a stupid decision to say that. The university of kentucky needs to allocate the phones of the tax payer because i'm guessing electing kentucky one of the main industrial monitoring main financial assets of that city or of the town. Whatever you wanna talk about is the university of georgia. University plays a big role in the health of not only the city but the entire state. So why dingo holy hell would you take tax payers funds away from that university where you pull them nelson to and how to help the university which in turn is going to help the entire community which in turn is gonna help the entire fucking state you idiot. How the hell does that work because those guys are exercising. The first amendment to kneel will jackasses who lifted.

"They would two and fourteen. I basically he was done now. He's sort of off the grid off broadway trying to revitalize the ucla program. Mike riley was a guy gone. Eight and fourteen in two season at oregon state before being hired as head coach by the san diego chargers. Don't ask me why hiring team after the first disastrous season with ryan leaf at quarterback. So maybe he was brought into a large mature into mentor. In to make a quarterback ryan leaf. Well that didn't work. San diego improved the eight eight nine hundred ninety nine but you can go out and party like ninety ninety nine but they eight eight thousand ninety nine but then they went one in fifteen in two thousand and then after going five eleven two thousand and one of the spanos like yes. Are you gotta go somewhere. Somebody who asked span those room only that team. You gotta go. Steve spurrier of the washington snyder skins. I mean here's a guy came in with like yeah. I don't understand what the workers are hard. I'm just gonna come into here. We'll play a little golf or pulling sixty eight hours a day. Who didn't florida. You have this guy for a new orleans saints. He spends what three hours a day. Seven days a week and phil room and then this office trying to get a game plan who not me. These currier genius Coming in you know. I can handle. There's no problem y'all see will. I didn't florida who well. Yeah how that works out for you. Steve brought most of his coaching staff. From gainesville you though. They had a little nfl experience. They brought in. Danny werfel chris. Dory lab replicate what is in the. Nfl this is played in the nfl. Played for the buccaneers at quarterback. In a punter michel. Unless you wasn't gonna work so the first year with the funding and opened right finished seven and nine twenty fifth scoring. but you're superman. My mister c's uber genius in terms of that nonsense then washington when five eleven to two thousand and three and they were like yeah time to bail because guess what steve. There's a reason why these guys spend eighteen to twenty three hours a day studying film and putting together game plans and doing all that kind of stuff because in the nfl is all about perry. And when you're at florida yeah you can go ahead and the twelve games that you play. You can win none of those games just based on the loan. Yes when you have the type of talent that you had a florida and you're out there playing the florida. Em's and you're out there playing the vanderbilts and you're out there playing the mississippi in the mississippi states. Yeah you can step on the field with a tell you got roll the football out there really game fifty six to seven but guess what when you're knee. Nfl and you're playing the new york giants and because of your funding offense. You're gonna have a tight end trying to go one on one in terms of blocking michael straight and its prime. Guess what's going to happen when you have a guy in danny were full. Who can't make it in. The nfl throws drew brees nimble liked by coach vic. I guess what's going to happen. You ain't gonna win football games. You ain't going to be successful. So that was the deal. The jury still them clip kingsbury. But that offense is rolling in arizona. Get kyle murray kill you. Keep doing that stuff. Matt rule mean he burned the more traditional offense and runs a more traditional type of nfl base philosophy. But these coaches man come in the state. I'm not saying that's urban meyer's position but history shows us not. I'm not even going back to. But wilkinson let the cardinals or lou holtz with the with the jets or bobby Trina with the latest thousand. I'm not even talking about those. You want me to keep going college coaches who just didn't get it done. I mean there's a lot of them and they'll be sitting there talking about carol. Pete carroll was a coach in the nfl. I with new england and the jet before he came back and became a coach in seattle after building a dynasty and usc. He got a job at usc because he needed the paycheck and he'll coach and then he turned out that he was really good at coaching in the college game but ultimately shit was kind of like. Yeah i'm ready to get back into I'm ready to get back to the pros so you have to have the type of pro spirits in my opinion never mired having and he's talking about bringing coordinators from college. You make sure you get multiple tornado who've had head coaching experience on your staff with a for two years until you finally get the hang of things but we'll see.

"Lou. Holtz steve spurrier and we know how that one so saving finished thirteen seventeen with the dolphins from oh five six before taking the alabama job the turned out to be pretty good for him and do whole finished with a three and ten record with the new york jets in nineteen seventy six interesting story. I read an ringer about college coaches going and getting an opportunity to coaching approach. It was like midway through the season with the jets. Wholesome like you know what man this this shifting from me. i'm a. I'm a college coach was born coach. College in the sooner the season is over a first chance i get. I'm getting the hell out of here. Then later on he was like you know what i'm gonna give it another shot because i've learned from my mistakes and now i know that i should have treated these guys like. Oh i don't know men. Is it a college kids and you know up. Give these guys a little bit more input into what we're doing but by that time his reputation in the nfl has been so tarnished that He was done with that. And of course. These spurrier was my washington snyder skins. He coached that team. From o-3 returning the coach south carolina. He just twelve and twenty signed him. Five years seventy five years thirty five million dollar contract and he couldn't wait to get out of that. Get on that gig. So i'll talk about that a little bit later on so we'll see but none of these guys has been asked successful. Spurrier holtz will save but other than saving holtz burger. I mean they hadn't had these success willing championships as urban meyer. Did but it's it's an interesting. It's an interesting experiment as a little flavor to jacksonville as a little flavor to next season's. Nfl schedule in season. So the wouldn't red flag about meyer. Being successful coach in one major problem on wise partnership will be successful. I think is because of this health problems. We this is the guy who burns the candle. The both end. You don't change your especially when you're fifty six and you have that type of winning and success now you can sit there and convince yourself that you know what i understand that. I'm not gonna have the success that i did in college. I understand. i'm not going to be willing. Eighty five percent a much football game. I understand that. I won't be having the ability to go ahead and do the recruiting and bringing the players that i really wanted to bring in. I know that. I know that there's a hard salary cap in the nfl. While i can spend fruitfully as much as i wanted to in college like a us Some perks shall we say to bring in some recruit from college. Even though that might be bending the rules of the ncaa just the bit so You know all of those things. Come into play. And like i said it's easy to say that now but when you jacksonville and your one is six. And he's a seems to be no end in sight is meyer. Who again will want close games. Go fucking nuts mentally and all that type of jerry west complex in terms of being able to handle stress. Is he going to be able to go ahead and continue to do what he's doing. He stepped down from ohio state. In december of twenty eight team the last time he's actually coached to game. He stepped down from the gig particularly because of health issues. He's been most of that season of pain on the sideline because of assist which caused him aggressive headaches throughout the year and then you have to suspend him for first three games of the twenty eighteen season for how before he handled multiple accounts of domestic violence involving assistant coach. Zac smith the guy was like well. You know he was a great guy. Who is father blah blah blah on loyalty and then the other guys upbeat numbers wife really. You're going to go down that route. I mean you late in columbus anymore where you'll have sycophants sitting there. S okay michigan. Beats of women by us. You know going to be flying in the nfl especially the way. They're cracking down on this stuff right now correctly. So so all of these things man. He's to let them be dealing with. He told you sports and twenty eighteen when he was being asked about coaching in the nfl said that could never work at a place. I see some of these guys for records because the nfl. So even some of these guys are record is seventy four fifty eight. That could never do that. Shit seventy four fifty eight you doing. Well hell if you singing over five hundred damn good. So if he's going to be talking about losing his mind something like that. This is going to work your reminder. So how long does he. How long does he plan on coaching here. Eventually he's going to run ragged the men's fifty six years old. Eventually he's going to Know the personality he is. He's not built their vehicle meeting in an nfl coaching job. Seventy four fifty eight. Continue to a louis been if you're not mentally strong enough to deal with this kind of nonsense and how urban meyer is fifty six now. How long can he coach. How long does he want to coach. I mean we see guys like pete carroll and bill bella. Check bruce arians. They're all over sixty-five seem to be doing well. Carol is going to be seventy guy. Looks like he's in his fifties. I wish i had that type of energy bill. Belichick looked like he coach for a couple of more years. Bruce arians i mean these guys all are great for me. Nfl head coaches all. over sixty. Five mike zimmer as a right now still the head coach in minnesota and you re vic fangio girl over sixty ron rivera. john ball. John gruden frank. Right mike mccarthy sean payton are all between the ages of fifty five and fifty nine years old now rivera just went through cancer but he seems to be all these guys for. Nfl head coaches seemed to be looking good for h. m. You look at these guys. As i mentioned before rivera and harbaugh and grooten right the needle. Look at those guys. Don't like those guys only fifty something years old like seventies. Yeah it's it's gonna be interesting is going to be very interesting windows world of sports on your host when wallace. Oh glad that you could be with us. He spent seven years at ohio state. Speaking about meyer spent seven seasons. I know how state six seasons at florida to utah. Won a bowling green young man at that time for seventeen seasons. He's taking a couple of years off and he's only fifty six years old. I mean he's still relatively a young guy who got into coaching. A wonder can. Shall we say for being a successful. As he was at the age that he was the worst record he's ever had in his coaching career. Is that florida. Two thousand and seven were physically. He shut down because the losing four and two thousand seven and then eight and five in twenty ten. I believe what year it was. I think it might have been t-boz last year. I think where he said he was going to retire. The pressure with too much of which is getting too much for them. These the the responsibilities a winning all the time so for my or maybe the fact that you know what. Jacksonville is not expected this catego- sixteen and win the championship. In the first couple of years maybe they'll take some of the Anxiety off of them but then again if you're sitting there three and eight three and eight. It's still going to be three and eight. And when you come.
