The Washington Commanders NFL team (formerly the Redskins), fined defensive coach Jack Del Rio $100,000 Friday for comments earlier this week in which he called the January 6, 2021 Capitol riot a “dust up” as compared to the nationwide George Floyd riots in late spring and summer of 2020. Jack Del Rio speaks to reporters Wednesday, screen image via WRC-TV/Twitter. Del Rio initially commented on the riots in a tweet Monday night on the January 6 Congressional committee, “Would love to understand “the whole story “ about why the summer of riots, looting, burning and the destruction of personal property is never discussed but this is ???

TRENDING: BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: Jan. 6 Committee Hearing Liars EDITED OUT FOOTAGE Last Night of Ashli Babbitt and Rosanne Boyland’s Death from FROM KEY WITNESS TESTIMONY! See LEAKED VIDEO HERE!! Oh, if they are (if the players are upset) and, and they want to talk about it, I’d talk about it with anybody, no problem, at any time. But they’re not. I’m just expressing myself, and I think we all as Americans have a right to express ourselves, especially if you’re being respectful. I’m being respectful. I just asked a simple question. Really, did I, let’s get right down to it, what did I ask? A simple question. Why are we not looking into those things. If we’re going to talk about it, why are we not looking into those things?

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
