The Blaze’s Tomi Lahren has taken a lot of heat for her earlier brain-dead rant against 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, and now she’s back for another helping.
In a new video posted on her Facebook page, Lahren said that Kaepernick shouldn’t be upset about police brutality against black people, and should instead focus on protesting all the problems that black people have created for themselves.
“What is the significant change he’s hoping to see, I wonder?” she asked rhetorically. “Maybe it’s a decrease in black-on-black crime. Maybe it’s more two-parent households where black fathers — like his — choose to stick around and raise their children. He should be talking about all of those things, but instead he chooses to parade around in a Fidel Castro shirt and anti-police socks like a damn fool.”
Lahren has frequently trashed Kaepernick for having a black father who didn’t raise him, and has chided the quarterback for not being more grateful for having two white parents who adopted him.
Lahren then said that Kaepernick ought to forfeit his entire salary and remove the American flag painted on the back of his helmet to show how serious he is about his protest.
Does that make any sense? Absolutely not, but she’s still just getting warmed up.
She then lectures Kaepernick that the American flag and national anthem are symbols that show Americans can overcome their differences when they stand together — this, despite the fact that she moments earlier had offered to help Kaepernick deport himself from the United States.
“Instead of waking up every day saying, ‘Poor me,’ how about you get up and thank God you can get up!” she thundered.
(For the record, Kaepernick’s protest isn’t about self-pity, but empathy for victims of police violence.)

‘People’s lives will be lost’: Psychiatrist warns ‘sociopath’ Trump is ‘getting worse’ — and failing in coronavirus response
President Donald Trump's psychological problems are getting worse and could be consequential as America faces a potential COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell on Thursday interviewed Dr. Lance Dodes, a former assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.
"As you pointed out, Lawrence, this man is about himself. He really is not about the country, he's not about public health," Dr. Dodes said of Trump.
"Although he has already severely damaged the country by being a psychopath or sociopath -- in many ways, he's damaged democracy -- I think people's lives will be lost now," he warned. "Individual lives will be lost because of the way he's mishandling the coronavirus issue."
‘Something really rotten’: Here’s the evidence of extensive voter suppression in Georgia’s notorious 2018 election
As the 2020 presidential campaign cycle grinds on, there’s renewed concern about the 21st century’s newest form of warfare: cyber-sabotage of government systems, including elections and online disinformation intended to incite unrest. But as Suppressed: The Fight to Vote, a documentary from Brave New Films, makes clear, partisan voter suppression tactics with 20th-century roots remain and can thwart multitudes of voters from changing their state’s political leaders.
The real story behind Trump’s new lawsuit against the New York Times
Wednesday was an ominous day for freedom of the press in this country, and I want to tell you why.
You may have heard or seen that President Trump filed a libel suit against the New York Times. Perhaps you weren’t surprised: the president is known to frequently disparage the Times even as he reads it obsessively. Borrowing a page from what I’ve referred to before as a Mount Rushmore of totalitarians, Robespierre, Hitler, Stalin and Mao, Trump loves to call the press the “enemy of the people.”
