My 1st thought when I saw that Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman were charged in a RICO case involving college admissions for thier kids was: Who? But my second was this. As of this moment both the FBI & Justice Department have more evidence of criminal activity on their part then they do on Donald Trump.
In one of the least surprising moves of the pre-season Tim Tebow was reassigned from the Mets Major League grapefruit camp to their AAA camp of their Syracuse franchise.
Nobody expected Tebow to make the majors out of spring training and his numbers .267 avg 1 RBI certainly weren’t enough to justify starting in the show but it’s worth noting that he has gone from A ball is 1st year to AA ball his 2nd and now will start in AAA ball year three.
Barring injury nobody will be surprised to see him called to the majors at some point this year but it’s worth noting that most sports writers who will downplay it when it happens were confidently telling us a few years ago that Tebow’s Baseball career was a joke.
Stephen A Smith starting the week suggesting that the 2018-2019 Boston Celtics are supporting Gordon Hayward based on race.
And then there’s the element of Boston, Massachusetts. They don’t just want a star. Of course, they’ll take any star that they can get, because their priority is winning. But everybody and their mother knows that particularly when it comes to Boston, if we can have a white superstar, that would be even better. And they view Gordon Hayward as having that kind of potential.
That’s pretty weak tea to begin with so weak that the even the incredibly annoying uberlib Alex Reamer called him out on it but when you cite the experience of a player who played his 1st game in Boston the year President Eisenhower was re-elected (1956) and began his last season the year Nixon was elected the 1st time (1969) as evidence of Boston’s Hayward racism then you’d better check the balance on your race card because it’s overdrawn.
On and FYI forget this James vs Jordan. Until they combine for at least as many rings as Russell has on his own that debate is about who is 2nd best.
There was a very moving video I saw on twitter of Holocaust survivors blasting Democrats for not standing against antisemitism in their ranks with at least one vowing she will never vote with them again
I was deeply moved by the messages from this room of Holocaust survivors’ for @SenSchumer and @SpeakerPelosi that ALL Americans need to hear:— Dov Hikind (@HikindDov) March 8, 2019
Hold onto @IlhanMN and her antisemitism, lose us! pic.twitter.com/Bn49wbfaK2
For those thinking the sight of these women might move the dems I have to tell you that the sight of these women all in their 90’s is more likely to convince the utilitarian left that trading old people from states they have a lock on for young antisemitic votes is good politics.
Oh one more thought on the subject of antisemitism. The reason why it is the oldest surviving prejudice of its type is the fact that the Jewish race is practically the only ancient people in constant contact with the outside world that are still here. All those other ancient civilization that hated their guts thousands of years ago are gone, their language and custom forgotten.
That doesn’t bode well for the current flock of antisemitism does it?
