Free speech is for BLACK athletes

No doubt all of those championing the right of Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players to disrespect the national anthem will rush out to defend this Major League Baseball player's right to free speech, right?
The other shoe has dropped in the Steve Clevenger saga: The Seattle Mariners have suspended the injured catcher for the rest of the season because of racially-charged tweets about the Charlotte protests, the Black Lives Matter movement and President Obama.

General manager Jerry Dipoto said in a statement:

“As soon as we became aware of the tweets posted by Steve yesterday we began to examine all of our options in regard to his standing on the team. Today we have informed him that he is suspended for the remainder of the season without pay.”

Clevenger was already on the 60-day disabled list and wasn’t going to play this season anyway. This isn’t about playing time, rather they’re punishing him in his wallet. He’ll now forfeit the remainder of his $516,500 salary for this season. That comes out to about $31,900 for the final 10 games.
This is why the NFL's position on the Black Lives Matter protesters is so transparently hypocritical. The professional sports leagues don't respect free speech in the slightest. They regularly crack down on white players while excusing black players anything short of physically beating women and children.

I'd stop watching Major League Baseball in protest, but I don't watch it anyhow.

I don't see how it's racist in any way to say that people who are acting like animals should be locked up like animals. There has to be some weird psychological projection to make that leap. Maybe leftists actually believe black people are subhuman so they get insecure whenever they see any sort of comparison even if it's just in their behavior.

The leftists are the most racist of all. Note the complete disdain they pour onto any successful black man that didn't succeed through a handout from them. They go so far as to say they "aren't black" which suggests that they can't believe that a black person at the far end of the bell curve exists.

Blogger Mark Butterworth September 24, 2016 9:04 AM  

I quit on baseball after the strike shortened season when Matt Williams was killing the ball, and PED free as far as I could tell.

The players and league dishonored the game. After the SF Giants won their second world series and all the Ped cheats were gone, the team was mostly white, I used the season to do crosswords while rooting the team on.

This year has been a roller coaster of torture. A slow start with three aces by a bad bullpen until before the All Star break they became the best team, and then immediately afterwards became one of the worst. If they get a sudden death playoff spot, they;'ll be lucky to score a single run as this point.

They've played in 54 one run games, and lost most of them. It's enough to drive men mad.

This may be my last season watching. I'm certainly done with football.

I would pay money to see an all white basketball, football, and baseball team. And watch them play Blacks, Latins, whoever, and humiliate them by winning more then they would lose.

Of course, those colored teams could not have any white coaches. I think you'd see whites dominate those sports again

Been thinking, black athletes are doing their protests in solidarity whereas whites get picked off one by one. The reaction of the NFL and MLB might be different if whites actually showed some unity for once. At least, I'd be very interested in seeing what would happen if they all spoke out at once. Let's see them suspend half their leagues.

@16 "maybe leftists actually believe black people are subhuman so they get insecure whenever they see any sort of comparison even if it's just in their behavior."

Did y'all ever see the short-lived (Animal Planet show?) "Escape to Chimp Eden" TV show? Brilliant, wonderful, and heartwarming show -- but also a bit eye-brow raising: at the fighting and flailing and hooting and screaming of the chimps in the enclosures when they got frustrated or angry about something.

The precise visual match between their behavior and that of "our vibrant rioters" was astonishing! I always wanted some techie kid to do side-by-side vignettes of what are essentially the EXACT same behaviors (down to swaggering, stomping, and gesturing!), you know, as an educational video for blind Whites!

(Can't find it, they probably pulled it, but there was a fight/beating by one chimp on another that was SO similar to the Reginald Denny beating -- down to the 'victory dance' with hooting and flailing -- that it was eerie! Or ... was it scientific?)

But here's an example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EH_0IDXFn0w

Blogger Mr.MantraMan September 24, 2016 9:47 AM  

#34 it might sound counter intuitive but I think the established authority has to be discredited first before whites show unity. As of now whites view the establishment as the authority and such see no need to unite since authority must be generally correct if slightly mistaken at times

Takes one to know one is the old fashioned way of saying it. Other people can have real flaws that get pointed out, but there is always a tendency to project our own internalized flaws onto others. We are all somewhat self preferring and it is normal and healthy, except the race part of it is currently subject to heavy disapproval. Thus the lefties repress it and project it onto others.

Same thing with the transgender bathroom BS. It gets pushed because it is nonsense because we all identify with our sexuality, except now it is seen as evil, sort of.

Oh hell, let the nuttyness continue until it doesn't. Then maybe the zealous members of straight society can screw over the weirdos for a while like they used to.

Vox, are you serious?

By your own reasoning, the hypocrisy lies not with MLB, but in the NFL's hiding behind the canard of "protecting the player's First Amendment rights", simply as an excuse to not have to crack down the speech of black players.

Baseball is merly doing what it and the NFL (if white players were involved) would be expected to do, and that is to use the power of the pocketbook (and playing time) to enforce their standards for speech on their players,

It is the NFL whose hypocrisy is on full display and it is their games that are richly deserving of a boycott.

Sounds great, until you realize the COPERATION would involve incarcerating a large chunk of the other 90% of blacks and telling the good wise, intelligent ones we're going back to segregation. Not that that will mean fewer blacks shot by cops. It'll mean more probably, but those good, wise, intelligent ones can own dealing with it.

And when you think about it, that's the message Kaepernick is actually sending. He's saying he isn't a part of the country, doesn't respect it, doesn't want to show any solidarity with it. I don't think he's smart enough to realize that's what he's saying, but it is.
