Judge Jeanine: Shutting Down Free Speech on College Campuses Pushing U.S. Toward Fascism


Saturday during her Fox News Channel “Justice” opening statement, Judge Jeanine Pirro reacted to University of California at Berkeley disinviting author Ann Coulter from speaking on campus, saying the shutting down of free speech on college campuses is pushing the country to a fascist and totalitarian society. “America is in trouble,” Pirro began. “They are trying to silence you. A monstrous and pervasive movement is putting the First Amendment and your free speech, the most basic and fundamental tenets of our nation at risk and in danger of extinction. And whether you are on the left or right, free speech is essential to our democracy, the reason the country was found, the reason people risk so much, even die to come here. Yet, as you sit there, you are watching a silencing in real-time. Where people are not allowed to express their opinion if it does not align with the thinking of others.” “It’s putting us on the course where we are in danger of becoming a fascist totalitarian society where there is only one accepted point of view; no other will be tolerated, and it’s time to fight back,” she added.

Bill Nye: ‘Science Is Political’


Bill Nye “the Science Guy” said Saturday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” that he believes science is political, reasoning that the Constitution grants Congress the power “to promote the progress of science and useful arts.” “I just want to remind the administration that science is political,” Nye told host Joy Reid. “It is inherently political, like everything else. We have to make decisions on how to allocate our intellect and treasure and it’s in the U.S. Constitution … ‘to promote the progress of science and useful arts.’ And my interpretation of the expression, “useful arts” is engineering. In those days, it would be architecture, city planning, designing of sewage systems, communication systems. This is all in the U.S. Constitution,” he reasoned.

FS1’s Cowherd: Tebow ‘Doesn’t Deserve to Play Major League Baseball’


During his Friday Fox Sports Radio show “The Herd,” Colin Cowherd ripped Tim Tebow’s decision to play baseball after 10 years of focusing on football in college and the NFL. Cowherd said he’s rooting against Tebow to make a major league roster because he does not want to see someone make it without putting in the work. “Why would we root for Tebow to be able to just step into baseball, which he didn’t play for 10 years, and excel?” Cowherd asked. “He’s a crappy Single-A player, and that’s great because what it shows you, Michael Jordan was a crappy AA player, is you can’t just mail it in.” He went on to note how people in other professions put in the time and effort to become good at their jobs. “I’m rooting against Tim Tebow to walk into baseball and flourish, and I rooted against Michael Jordan to walk into baseball and flourish. They’ve both been exposed as dreamers and lousy once they got out of their lane,” Cowherd continued. Cowherd then accused Tebow of not working hard enough and being “not willing to take the steps to be great” because he refused to play in the Canadian Football

ESPN’s Kellerman: Gronkowski Popping Into WH Press Briefing Normalizes Sean Spicer — Patriots Should’ve Boycotted Trip


Thursday, ESPN “First Take” co-host Max Kellerman weighed in on the New England Patriots’ visit to the White House in celebration of their Super Bowl victory over the Atlanta Falcons. In a long-winded rant, Kellerman said Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski walking into press secretary Sean Spicer’s press briefing Wednesday normalizes Spicer’s behavior, adding that this proves that the Patriots should have completely boycotted visiting the White House. Remarks as follows: When the press corps is cracking up at a press secretary because of an athlete’s presence there, so he’s lending something to the proceedings, the athlete is, and the press corps is, you know, they’re having a rollicking good time, they’re really laughing at a press secretary who in his first press conference, demonstrably lied, shot credibility, I mean your job is to establish credibility with the national media, and completely shot it since his first press conference and it’s gone downhill since there, by the way. In a scary way, incidentally, especially when there’s a lot of uncertainty about a very unusual administration, how much authoritarian impulse is there — well, when the press secretary comes out and says what you know as a fact is not a fact

FS1’s Sharpe ‘Surprised’ By How Many Black Patriots Showed Up at White House — Says They Were Just ‘Fillers’


During the Thursday Fox Sports 1 “Undisputed” broadcast, co-host Shannon Sharpe reacted to the turnout at the White House for the New England Patriots’ Super Bowl LI celebration, saying he was “surprised” so many black players showed up, although he “I was surprised that many black players showed up,” Sharpe stated. “I wasn’t surprised 34 players showed up. And when you factor in the practice squad guys, guys that [are] on injured reserved, I think they said it was supposed to be like 68 players, 34 of them showed up. But I was surprised how many African-American players showed up, Skip. And I’m not so sure — they might have been fillers. They might have [said], ‘Man, you’ve got a big neck. Come on. We need you stand in for this photo-op.’” Co-host Skip Bayless interrupted, “I don’t think that’s the case, but go ahead.” “Skip, I recognized like three or four black guys. I’m sorry,” Sharpe responded. Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent

FS1’s Sharpe: Black NFL Coaches Not Held to Same Standard as White Counterparts


Fox Sports 1’s Shannon Sharpe reacted Tuesday on “Undisputed” to Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones lashing out at a reporter for asking about his offseason arrest. Sharpe noted how it “bothers” him black players act up for black head coaches when black head coaches are so sparse in the league, but added that black head coaches are held more accountable for their players’ actions than white head coaches. “It bothers me that people of color act like this when they have other people of color [as] head coaches,” Sharpe stated. “You see the way he acts for [Bengals head coach] Marvin Lewis. It’s so hard for blacks to get head coaching jobs.” “I’m not saying just because you play for a black coach, I’m not saying you should act any different but you damn sure shouldn’t act worse. And it bothers me that Marvin Lewis has to deal with this because this gets placed at his feet,” he continued. Sharpe went on to say black head coaches get criticized for how their players act on and off the field, while some of their white counterparts do not. “These guys, they hold black coaches so accountable for the actions of their team and some

Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones ripped a reporter Monday after a voluntary offseason workout. Jones was speaking to media for the first time since being his offseason arrest where he was caught on video wishing death on a cop when a reporter asked if he had anything to prove to the fans following his January assault, despite telling reporters he did not want to talk about his arrest. “Didn’t I just tell you don’t ask me that?” Jones replied. “You out … Turn around. Go back, go back that way. Bye. See you. Next question.” “That’s his last interview of the year,” he said as he walked off. “Don’t come over here no more for the rest of the year.” Per Fox 19, Jones continued to “lash out” at their reporter when cameras were off. He reportedly raised his voice and cursed at him. Teammates and head coach Marvin Lewis reportedly had to speak with Jones at his locker to calm him down. “Pacman,” who has a lengthy history of arrests, entered an alcohol-related treatment program and anger management following his arrest on charges of harassment with a bodily substance, assault, obstructing official business and disorderly conduct for fighting with a security guard, and

Fmr UFC Fighter Tim Kennedy Reenlists, Credits Trump: The Military ‘Got Our Teeth Back’


Sunday on “Fox & Friends Weekend,” former UFC Fighter Tim Kennedy said he decided to re-enlist in the U.S. Army Special Forces after noticing the change in leadership under new President Donald Trump following eight years with Barack Obama. Kennedy was inspired by the MOAB dropped in Afghanistan last week. “I’ve got hope again,” he said of Trump being commander-in-chief. “The military, we got our teeth back.” Kennedy added that the U.S. now has a “reinvigorated, hopeful, beautiful military.” “I’ve got people that will back me now,” he explained. Dear isis, If you are lucky enough to kill a Special Forces operator, the possibility of us dropping the biggest non-nuclear bomb ever made on you should be the least of your concerns. There is a vengeance and wrath associated with the loss of one of our brothers. May God have mercy on your soul because we are coming and we will have none to give. Sincerely, The U.S. Military A post shared by Tim Kennedy (@timkennedymma) on Apr 14, 2017 at 12:34pm PDT Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent

Watch: Patriots Players Boycotting White House Super Bowl Celebration Speak Out on Trump


Several members from the 2016-2017 Super Bowl winning New England Patriots are boycotting the team’s April 19 trip to the White House to celebrate their season with President Donald Trump. Chris Long, Martellus Bennett, Devin McCourty, Alan Branch and LeGarrette Blount all announced they would forgo the tradition due to the man currently in office. Dont’a Hightower also announced he would not go, but reasoned that he had gone previously with the University of Alabama and with the Patriots so he did not want to go again. Friday, McCourty and Long appeared in a video titled “StandingPats: (Be Patriots)” along with fans to discuss their opposition to Trump. Long says in the video, “When my son grows up, and I believe the legacy of our president is going to be what it is, I don’t want him to say, ‘Hey dad. Why did you go when you knew it was wrong?’” One fan says he was tired of the Patriots being labeled “alt-Right,” which McCourty proposes they “switch the narrative.” The video concludes with each fan, McCourty and Long saying, “Be Patriots.” Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent
