Michigan State Police director busted for Facebook post calling kneeling NFL players ‘anti-American degenerates’

Published

on

The director of the Michigan State Police is under fire after she posted a meme to her Facebook page calling protesting NFL players “degenerates.”

According to the Detroit Free Press, Col. Kriste Kibbey Etue shared the message on Sunday with her social media followers after every team in the NFL protested in some manner following President Donald Trump’s “son of a bitch” attack on former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

The posted meme (seen below) was addressed, “Dear NFL” and slurred the players as “millionaire ingrates who hate America,” adding that they are “arrogant, ungrateful anti-American degenerates.”

A local attorney who is representing more than a dozen  troopers in civil disputes with the department, lambasted Etue for exhibiting a “kind of a dangerous mindset for someone in her powerful position.”

It’s “scary that they don’t understand that America is defined by its freedoms, and one of these freedoms is freedom of speech,” Leonard Mungo explained. It also “has implications for why the state police … don’t have representative numbers of African Americans in their ranks.”

A spokesperson for the police director excused the posting, saying it was not about race and was something Etue felt she was only sharing with her friends.

“As a public servant, Col. Etue has great respect for the armed forces and those who fight to protect our freedoms,” Shannon Banner said in an e-mail to the Free Press, adding the the colonel didn’t create it, stating: “It’s a meme that is posted in other places around the Internet.”

According to Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan, “When such a high-ranking member of law enforcement feels compelled to share such broad, inaccurate, and shameful comments, their judgment can no longer be trusted to help protect Michigan’s diverse communities. Col. Kriste Kibbey Etue needs to step aside.”

‘He should be hospitalized’: Internet stunned after Trump goes off on completely incoherent Mt Rushmore rant

Published

on

President Donald Trump was asked on Tuesday whether his face should appear on Mount Rushmore along with other major American presidents.

“If I answer that question yes, I will end up with such bad publicity,” Trump told The Hill, before pivoting to an incoherent rant about fireworks.

The president's rambling shocked many people on Twitter:

Apart from Trump’s apparent inability to string together coherent English sentences on the fly, note also the sheer ignorance and apathy toward the idea that there might be legitimate reasons why fireworks are not detonated around the Black Hills. https://t.co/jja2XD19Mw

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
