#TakeAKnee Trends After Trump Says An NFL Protester Is A Son Of A B*tch

This morning on Twitter, the trending topic #TakeAKnee has been growing spreading across the social network and beyond, calling to attention a number of issues such as police brutality, racial equity and more. It appears that some are misunderstanding the gesture, just as many did with Colin Kaepernick‘s peaceful, kneeling protest during last year’s NFL season.

President Donald Trump was at an Alabama rally on Friday, blasting NFL players who have spoken out against police violence and related injustices in recent days.

At one point, Trump says, “love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, he’s fired!’” to a round of applause which some saw as a direct dig at Kap. Players across the league hit back on Twitter, thus bringing forth the current trending topic.

The hashtag is calling for NFL players to take a knee just as Kaepernick did with the San Francisco 49ers this coming Sunday, and already the pushback has been vehement as expected.

The growing narrative and increasing number of athletes and entertainers who have rallied around Kaepernick’s cause to shout down police brutality and spark discussion is that it’s unpatriotic or offensive to the nation’s military. While that point has become a rallying cry for opponents of Kaepernick and others joined in the silent protests, it has and always been deeper than that.

Thankfully, many of the #TakeAKnee responders on Twitter are carefully noting that the hashtag is to unify and promote equal rights for all. That still isn’t stopping President Cheeto Chump Stans and other right-wing nutballs from adding their unnecessary two cents.

We’ve collected the best of the chatter below and on the following pages. We could not identify who originated the trending topic but will give credit and update once we do so. Following the discussion here.

Donald Trump Is The Real Son Of A B*tch [EDITORIAL]

Donald Trump’s words at an Alabama rally Friday night (Sept. 22) for Sen. Luther Strange was a chance for the former business mogul to attack not only Black athletes but anyone who dares to stand against inequality and oppression. In a classic abuse of power, the President of the United States effectively declared war on the nation’s citizens and their freedom to peacefully demonstrate or criticize its leaders, even as they prove themselves to have the decency of a pile of dust.

“Get that son of a b*tch off the field right now. – President Donald Trump”

While most world leaders use public airtime to address important issues or to rally a positive cause, Trump opened his speech in Alabama Friday by blasting peacefully protesting NFL players then adding false motives to their gesture.

Time and again, Colin Kaepernick and others have explained that the protest is aimed at calling attention to police brutality, the lack of equal rights, and injustices many people of color face in this nation. For Trump and others to frame the protests as a dig at patriotism and the military helps stoke the very fires of the woefully ignorant flock that managed to get him elected. It’s cowardly. It’s low. It cheapens the what being president should stand for.

Instead of speaking in loving support of those affected by the storms in Puerto Rico or other pertinent matters, Twitter Fingers Trump used this Saturday morning to snatch away an invite to the White House to the Golden State Warriors that apparently never existed. Reacting to Warriors All-Star Stephen Curry’s Friday comments that he’d vote “no” if Trump and his cronies actually had the stones to invite them, the tweet was yet another childish response from the petulant Commander-in-Chief.

Trump using his powerful platform to hurl threats, insults, and whip his base into a frenzy of misguided negativity does nothing but prove the fact why athletes and entertainers have turned to speaking out, as ESPN anchor Jemele Hill did recently. The criticism Trump has received and the protests around the country aren’t happening for unsubstantiated reasons. America has a race problem, and instead of calling out so-called sons of b*tches for made-up reasons, perhaps Trump needs to take a look in the mirror to realize who the real son of a b*tch is.

 Couple Kills And Burns Their Nanny In Their Backyard

A couple, Sabrina Kouider and Ouissem Medouni, have appeared in court charged with murder after the police discoved of a badly burned body in the garden of their London home.

Authorities have been unable to tell the age or gender of the body due to the level of burns, but the victim has been named in local reports as Sophie Lionnet, a nanny who is said to have worked for the two. Police discovered the body on Wednesday after parents walking their children home from school reported a large fire and “weird barbecue smell”, according to reports.

A friend of the nanny told the Daily Mail she was unhappy living there, adding: “She had finally decided to go home, though, and had just asked her mum to send her £40 so she could afford the fare. She was supposed to have gone back on Monday. She never arrived.”

Lionnet had been living with the family for a little over a year, caring for Kouider’s 3-year-old daughter and 6-year-old son.
