Saw this article which talks about how pro football player Michael Bennett was arrested after Mayweather-MacGregor.
Bennett attributed his detention to being black. “Las Vegas police officers singled me out and pointed their guns at me for doing nothing more than simply being a black man in the wrong place at the wrong time,” he wrote.
He’s a football player, multi-millionaire, and MIND READER. It was at this point in the article that it occurred to me that I had heard the name Michael Bennett before. Who was he? Was he totally innocent?
“Bennett was seen crouched down behind a gaming machine,” he said. “He ran out and jumped over a wall. Due to Bennett’s actions, they believed he may have been involved in the shooting.”
So it looks like there was good reason for the cops to stop him. I still didn’t remember who he was though. Then:
Bennett, a two-time Pro Bowl defensive end, has become known for his activism. Last month, he announced he would not stand for the national anthem, citing the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va.
Oh, that’s right. He was the other multi-millionaire who was following Colin Kaepernick’s example by not standing to respect the country that has made him richer than 99.9999% of the people in the world, at a very young age no less. Another multi-millionaire ignoring the reams of data on actual arrests and police shootings.
This is something that I’ve realized after almost half a lifetime working for the Left. People who look for racism tend to find it. Bennett sees the world through the lens of race, and he finds what he wants to find. Because he’s rich and has a big platform to speak from, and because the Left won the cultural war, nobody can stop him. There’s no story here.
But there was a story with Mayweather MacGregor–which I’m a bit late in addressing. I didn’t pay to see it; I was following it on one of those live-update news sites. All the news sites were making it seem as it was really close and that (gasp!) MacGregor was actually winning. But then I saw the actual fight later. I’m sorry, but “Money” was just toying with MacGregor for the first three rounds. As Chael Sonnen said before the fight, MacGregor wasn’t just the worst boxer in the ring during the fight, he was the worst boxer on the ENTIRE CARD. As Mayweather said in the ringside interview after the fight, he was trying to make it exciting in order to pay back a debt for that boring Mayweather Pacquiao fight (which I did pay to see live). But this match was far worse than the Pacquiao fight since there really was no question that Floyd would win. Both guys made an insane amount of money for a fight between two guys who couldn’t be any less equal. Some people have said that they were glad to have paid, and if this is the case, then I’m happy for them. But this fight wasn’t even close. Watching Michael Bennett taking a fall for the cops would’ve been much more exciting–although with his rich lawyer fighting alongside the BLM movement, I have a feeling Bennett is also fighting an opponent that doesn’t have a prayer.
