Rams owner Stan Kroenke issues statement regarding President Trump’s comments | Rams Wire
Los Angeles Rams owner and chairman Stan Kroenke has joined the long list of NFL owners who have responded to President Donald Trump’s comments regarding national anthem protests by players across the league.
Kroenke supports those players and says “our organization is committed to celebrating diversity, inclusion and respect.”
Kroenke is one of the most well known and powerful owners in the league, and while he didn’t directly respond to Trump’s comments, he is clearly taking a stand against them and supporting players across the NFL.
Several Rams players shared their thoughts on Twitter over the weekend, echoing similar sentiments.

The Fragile, Toxic Masculinity of Donald Trump | The Nation
His comments about NFL players reveal just how divisive and narcissistic the president really is.
It’s exhausting to have a president who gets angrier at outspoken black athletes than at Nazis. It’s exhausting how shameless he is about his bigotry and his toxicity. This is a president who never played football. He never served in the armed forces. He frets over what conclusions we draw from the size of his hands. His skin is thinner than the gossamer wings of a butterfly. He is the epitome of a bullying but frail brand of masculinity. He belongs in a psychological text book as a case study, not in the White House. Look at Trump’s comments—in their entirety—about the current state of the National Football League, from his speech at a campaign rally in Huntsville, Alabama.

Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, Roger Waters, Prophets of Rage take a knee for equality | Consequence of Sound
Plus, Vedder's bandmate Mike McCready performs blistering guitar rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner prior to Sunday's Seahawks-Titans game
Professionals athletes weren’t the only ones who took a knee this weekend in protest of Donald Trump and the race-baiting ideology that he has enflamed since coming into office earlier this year: On Saturday, Stevie Wonder took two knees “for America” during his appearance at New York’s Global Citizen Festival. On Sunday, Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder followed suit, as he knelt to the ground to open his performance at the Pilgrimage Music Festival in Tennessee. Pearl Jam’s official Twitter account shared video of Vedder’s action...

The NFL Protests May Be Unpopular Now, But That Doesn’t Mean They’ll End That Way | FiveThirtyEight
Civil rights protests, almost by definition, begin as unpopular.
President Trump is feuding with the NFL. He argued that players shouldn’t take a knee during the national anthem to protest police violence against African-Americans. Trump also urged NFL team owners to do something to stop them. Trump may be reading the results of polls showing that most Americans disapprove of the players’ protests, and believes he can take political advantage of a cultural divide. And he may be right — for now.

Kneeling for Life and Liberty Is Patriotic - The Atlantic
“They are kneeling in an effort to defend the very core of the Declaration of Independence. No political act is more patriotic than petitioning government for that purpose. If you dislike their tactics, apart from their message, consider them imperfect; I won’t object so long as you then ask yourself if you find it easy to forgive Thomas Jefferson for the imperfection of owning slaves while advancing life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, but hard to forgive young black men for merely kneeling while they try to advance life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness in their time.”

“But I hope I would’ve knelt in solidarity with my fellow players if I was in the NFL Sunday, because it is far better to get the theatrics wrong in defense of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, than to master theatrics as adeptly as a reality-TV star, then marshal them to intentionally divide Americans against one another by shit-posting on Twitter, all while transgressing against life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

HEWN, No. 232
"The University of Wyoming 1969 Football Team. The "Black 14" wore black armbands in a game versus BYU to protest the racial policies of the school and the Mormon church. The players had their scholarships revoked and were kicked off the team.

For my high school gym teacher Mel Hamilton, one of the "Black 14": someone who taught us early that athletes have long been activists

I’ve been a Denver Broncos fan my whole life. I often joke that I learned to cuss watching my dad watch the team. My dad faulted quarterback Craig Morton for the team’s failures, and I remember the first game of the QB who replaced him – the string of profanities that my dad shouted at the television when that quarterback, John Elway, lined up behind a guard and not the center to take the snap. I’ve cheered for the Orange Crush and the Three Amigos, and I’ve remained a loyal fan through decades of humiliating losses when there wasn’t much to craft a good PR campaign or nickname around. (I never cheered for Tebow, to be clear.) Every time Shannon Sharpe leans in with his commentary on the politics of sports, I want to point out to everyone that he was a Bronco (and one of the greatest tight ends in the history of the game).

But I’ll never watch football again.

I decided to boycott the NFL this year because of the organization’s treatment of Colin Kaepernick. It’s so apparent that he’s been blackballed for his activism and his protest of police brutality. (Yes, I realize there’s an argument that he’s just not that good of a QB. I don’t buy it.) I’ve thought about ordering a Broncos jersey with a number 7 on it – a 7 with the name Kaepernick, not Elway on the back. But I’m not giving the NFL another dime.

The President of the United States spoke at a campaign rally in Alabama last night and said that NFL owners should fire players who take a knee, as Kaepernick famously did last season, during the national anthem. “Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, out. He’s fired. He’s fired!” Trump role-played to roars of approval from the audience. These protests, Trump contended, are “a total disrespect of our heritage” – “our heritage,” of course, is quite the racist dog-whistle when speaking about the actions of Black football players to a crowd of white supporters in Alabama.

Trump also blasted the NFL for changes to the game that have meant “big hits” are penalized. “Today, if you hit too hard, 15 yards, throw him out of the game,” Trump said as he mimicked a referee throwing a flag.

Trump’s complaints about football came less than a day after The New York Times reported that former Patriots player and convicted murderer Aaron Hernandez had severe CTE when he killed himself in his jail cell earlier this year. Hernandez was 27. He’d last played football at age 23.

I haven’t been able to stop thinking about Hernandez’s story.

Like I said, I’m a Broncos fan, and there’s one team I hate more than any team in any sport. But I’ll tell you this: it’s a New England Patriot who’s finally convinced me: I will never watch football again. Kap could get re-hired. Every player tomorrow could take a knee. Doesn’t matter. I just can’t support this game any longer.

Wait a minute Audrey, I can hear you mutter. This is an ed-tech newsletter. What does any of this have to do with education? Everything. Football is a huge deal – culturally, financially – for schools, from middle school on. As we think about the future of education, we must not only address the labor of the professoriate, adjunct teachers or otherwise; we must address the labor of students, and particularly the labor of student-athletes. Pay them for starters, sure. But we’ve got to do more than that. I’ve previously argued that, until futurists address the NCAA in their predictions about the end of higher ed, their prattle about the coming techno-disruption means very little. Now more than ever it’s time to talk about the end of football. Two college football players died last weekend. Three died during the off-season.

This isn’t simply about exploitation of professional athletes. This isn’t simply about the politics of the NFL. The practices of K–12 education and college education are implicated here as well – how we treat and and how we create vulnerable bodies and minds. And how powerful white owners laugh all the way to the bank.

Yours in struggle,

Главред «Сиб.фм» уволился после удаления новости про Навального по требованию собственника — Meduza
Главный редактор издания «Сиб.фм» Сергей Самойленко объявил, что с октября увольняется с должности. Об этом Самойленко сообщил 22 сентября, когда с сайта пропала новость о предстоящем митинге Алексея Навального в Новосибирске.

В интервью «Радио Свобода» Самойленко подтвердил, что уволился из-за удаления новости по требованию собственника. «Собственник принял решение, на мой взгляд, бессмысленное и даже идиотское. Я почесал репу и понял, что не готов в таких параметрах работать», — добавил главред издания.

Алексей Навальный — А теперь скажите: кто же организовал это нападение?
Таким образом, есть следующие факты:

1. Человек подкараулил другого человека и несколько раз ударил его по голове стальной трубой.

2. Нападавший рассказал историю о том, что это Ляскин сам заказал нападение на себя, спустя пять минут после знакомства.

3. Откровения нападавшего, включая «утекшее» видео допроса, моментально тиражируют прокремлёвские СМИ

4. Нападавший ранее неоднократно судим.

5. Нападавший приехал из другого региона. Не имеет здесь ни работы, ни жилья.

6. Тем не менее, полиция отпускает его под подписку о невыезде. (Сравните с другими уголовными делами).

Теперь скажите мне, опираясь на эти шесть фактов: разве могут оставаться сомнения в том, что это нападение организовано чиновниками администрации президента?
