    Yes, I know Brown is a Trump supporter of some kind. He met with Trump and they talked about how to help black youth in the democrat ghettos. Don’t know the details.

    Amen! Love it!

  5. First paragraph from that link I just dropped:

    Many political sports fans were shocked when 80-year-old football legend Jim Brown recently came out in fulsome support of Donald Trump. Now he has drawn even more ire. In an appearance on CNN, he bashed civil-rights legend Representative John Lewis for calling Trump “illegitimate.”

  6. Another snip:

    In the 1950s and 1960s, Jim Brown was not a fan of Dr. King’s civil-rights movement.

    Interesting!

    Some things . . . such as guys opening the door for a lady, or young people respecting the flag and those who have defended it . . . never go completely out of style.

    ‘Cause if they do, that society is circling the bowl and being replaced by a weaker, lesser, inferior doctrine.

    See what I mean, everyone? The headlines and some inferences throughout the article are just dead WRONG because they don’t fit the writer’s ideology.
    He is an ACTIVIST but only in decent, America-loving ways, not the kind of activist we have today which automatically means to violently protest, do things that are don’t fit with human nature, etc.

    Jim Brown is AMERICAN first, THEN BLACK………..

    Kid, so much more than that; here in LA (he also does it in Cleveland), he’s had a group for years which helps train young Black men and get them jobs……he has groups which meet and talk about things that will help them succeed in their lives. I’ve always admired Jim Brown….

    Then to read this DRIVEL, this mischaracterization……….really bugged me.

    it’s SUCH a GREAT EXAMPLE of LIES, I wanted to share it with you all…not that we don’t ALL know about lies, but this,I found, particularly interesting. Maybe cuz I’m such a fan of his.

    It is all about divide and conquer. Pit one against another… and especially the good guys….they can’t let them have one bit of peace.

    Yep. America is such a racist country that hundreds of Black athletes make millions of $$$ by simply playing games. Poor guys! I feel sorry of them not appreciating the opportunity given to them.

    Bunk…I believe that’s 100% correct..DIVIDE AND CONQUER.

    I can barely watch ANY news these days, it’s made to all sound so disheartening.

    Of course, NoKorea is NOT complying, the Chinese just fired six shots as a warning for naval planes to get the heck out….tariffs are hurting Americans at this point (right before the midterms 😦 ) and there’s so much more going wrong it’s hard to catch up, but…

    Yes, it’s all intended to SCREW WITH OUR MINDS…particularly those of us who read ALL news, however cursorily….BAD BAD BAD.

    MAL: amazing, isn’t it? Hey, you in Olympia now?? I hope the trip went well…

    ALSO, does anybody agree with me that having Liberal news featuring HUGE pictures of newly executed prisoners as their HEADLINE STORY helps nobody and is, literally, of not interest at all? Someone nobody’s heard of before except those he affected?

    NEGATIVE NEGATIVE NEGATIVE……..I believe our news is literally destroying us..health-wise, causing depression, etc.

    And this is just one example, of course, I could write a hundred cases just today here

    AOW, Jim Brown must not be aware that the head of the NAACP calls Trump a racissss.

    Z, Divide and conquer plus Demoralize is job one for the commies, of which I include the left in that category.

    Kid, that’s what I like so much about Jim Brown….he couldn’t care less what the NAACP says.
    Kanye West is beginning to sound like that, too…will wonders never cease? I think a LOT of leftwing whites are more concerned about the NAACP (and Southern Povery Law …and ACLU, etc.) than most Blacks do!

    Mal, glad you’re there….safe and sound and COOLER 🙂 HAVE FUN!

  18. Jim Brown was hero of mine for this Ohio boy. He wasn’t perfect, but who is. Brown was independent. After all, who retire at the top of his game. I’ve been struggling with health issues myself. Working on getting better. Have been reading though.

    You are VERY missed around here.

    THANK YOU for confirming my feelings about Brown……he had some sex scandal stuff some years back but he’s been so maligned in this article..it’s got so much WRONG I just had to post it.

    God bless, Law and Order….thanks for reading, please come back again soon. XXX
