Yes, Intolerance of intolerance. It’s a paradox. 

If BLM is what you’re referring to, It seems like the majority are showing that they are no longer tolerant of racism. 

not sure why anyone sees that as a bad thing. 

Looting, rioting, innocent people being attacked in the streets, monuments being torn down, no respect for law and order...yeah, I'd say that's a bad thing. In fact, I'd say this is one of the worst moments in our country's history. But hey, if a violent communist insurrection and a Marxist coup is your idea of tolerance, that's good to know.

Maybe conflating peaceful protests with a handful of anarchists isn’t the most logical approach to judging a movement.

Funny, I don’t recall saying any of that. Can you maybe use the quote feature to quote me saying “violent communist insurrection and a Marxist coup” is “my idea of tolerance”? 

that’d be very helpful, thanks.

Don't get sucked down this rabbit hole, he is definitely one of those guys who says things like "the intolerant left".

His post reads like a series of Tucker a Carlson chyrons. :doh:

Son, respectfully, you should read up on the disgusting, terrible, awful things that this country has done in its history. 

This doesn’t even crack the top 100

Oh, I have. And yes, it does. But to each their own.

Great.  And how many of your top-50 are from 1968?

Not the place to get into this, but yes, '68 has more than a few spots on the list. Dr. King's and Bobby Kennedy's assassinations are obvious choices. However, I also said this is "one of" the worst moments, and I stand by that. The attempted overthrow of our government by communists (avowed communists, by the way) and a possible descent into civil war are pretty significant--not really sure how anyone can deny that.

Anyway, back to the topic at hand. I think it's somewhat amusing that the vitriol and venom surrounding CK's possible return will end up moot in the end. At least for now. One of the few issues on which I agree with some other posters on the other end of the political chasm is that an NFL season is looking less and less likely this year. We can argue about his ability, the distraction he may or may not cause, the illegitimacy of his beliefs, etc., but in the end it's looking like we're all wasting our time.

That we can agree on.

It has been four years, but Colin Kaepernick is back in a "Madden" game. The latest update to "Madden 21" includes Kaepernick being added to the free agents list. He was given an 81 rating by EA Sports, which is good enough to make Kaepernick "in the top 15 of the video game's 111 total quarterbacks," according to The Undefeated.

EA Sports also gave Kaepernick his own, signature touchdown celebration -- a raised fist. With a player rating of 81, the QB is ranked higher than these notable signal-callers:

Josh Allen (77)

Kyler Murray (77)

Cam Newton (78)

Derek Carr (79)

Ryan Tannehill (80)

That makes Blaine Gabbart an 82 OVR.

The Madden 21 edition sold well on release but has received lukewarm reviews. Some places are saying sales are already dropping because fans don't love it. I am sure EA Sports did their research and calculated that adding Kaep into the game and the subsequent buzz about his rating would push another X thousand of units/downloads sold.

He's gonna need to eat some humble pie like Cam did and prove it. The fact that Cam quickly vaulted to the #1 QB for Bill is proof that Colin can make that same jump if he wants to put forth the effort. He's been gone too long to just jump in the starting lineup and a multi million 4 contract.

His interests probably lie elsewhere.
