Fearless: Black national anthem signals NFL permanently joining BLM-LGBTQIA+ ‘Alphabet Mafia’ 17 July, 2021 - 11:10am

Police arrested Sherman after the free agent cornerback violently tried to break into the home of his in-laws, threatened to kill himself and harm his wife, and drunkenly wrecked his Mercedes at a construction site.

Something is clearly wrong with one of Seattle's pillars. Fortunately for Sherman, he plays for the right political team. That team is going to protect Sherman at all costs.

That team is what I call the Alphabet Mafia — BLMLGBTQIA+.

The Alphabet Mafia is the new Dallas Cowboys, "America's Team," the team every kid dreams about making.

If you're wondering why the NFL will play the black national anthem — "Lift Every Voice and Sing" — before games in the coming season, it's an initiation ritual placed on the league for Alphabet Mafia membership.

Let's say Patriots coach Bill Belichick, a friend of Donald Trump, had been accused of the actions attributed to Richard Sherman, would a judge label Belichick a pillar of the Boston community? Would the judge be skewered for giving Belichick "white privilege"?

Yesterday, it was reported the NFL will make the black national anthem standard procedure at its pregame activities. It was also reported that social justice messages will return on the backs of helmets and throughout the stadiums.

The news surprised some sports fans. Even the super-woke NBA backed away from its social justice messaging this season. The words Black Lives Matter were stripped from the court. This past NBA season felt halfway normal. The games no longer felt like ESPN's Maria Taylor was wagging a finger of blame as you watched.

Sports fans wrongly assumed the NFL would make the same pivot to normalcy that the NBA did.

Nope. Not true. Different men have different standards to achieve made status in the Alphabet Mafia. The NFL has more hoops to jump through. It's a process.

Third-string Raiders defensive end Carl Nassib being celebrated for coming out as gay was part of the process. The NFL's social media campaign promoting the league as gay, transgender, non-binary, and Winnie the Pooh was part of the process. So was pretending that women's soccer player Carli Lloyd could kick in the NFL. And so was the Super Bowl commercial based on the fallacy that a little black girl received a football scholarship to play cornerback.

Embracing the black national anthem is part of the process. Continuing the pagan worship of the good Dr. Rev. George Floyd Luther III is part of the process.

At some point, the Alphabet Mafia will demand — and the league will acquiesce — that Meghan Markle be named head coach of the Los Angeles Rams.

Why does the NFL so desperately want to join the Alphabet Mafia?

Because the league has been promised, if it promotes the appropriate narrative, that corporate media will quit terrorizing its brand with false and exaggerated accusations of racism and a lack of safety. The NFL's public relations problems regarding black head coaches and head trauma will disappear.

Football is being brought into the secret society, the fraternal satanic organizations reshaping global society. Global elites cannot socially engineer the changes they want without controlling the number 1 American TV show on five different networks — CBS, Fox, ESPN, NBC, and the NFL Network.

Richard Sherman pleads not guilty to five charges, says he is 'remorseful for my actions'

ESPN 17 July, 2021 - 11:10am

Free-agent cornerback Richard Sherman, who earlier Friday said he was "deeply remorseful for my actions," has pleaded not guilty to five misdemeanor charges stemming from his arrest at his in-laws' home northeast of Seattle earlier this week.

According to documents filed by the King County prosecuting attorney's office on Friday, the charges include two domestic violence counts -- criminal trespass in the second degree and malicious mischief in the third degree -- along with resisting arrest, driving while under the influence and reckless endangerment of roadway workers.

The charges are all misdemeanors, punishable by up to 90 days in jail, or gross misdemeanors, punishable by up to one year.

Conditions of Sherman's release include avoiding any contact with his father-in-law, Raymond Moss.

On Friday afternoon, Sherman posted a statement to Twitter acknowledging the week's events.

"I am deeply remorseful for my actions on Tuesday night. I behaved in a manner I am not proud of," Sherman wrote. "I have been dealing with some personal challenges over the last several months, but that is not an excuse for how I acted. The importance of mental and emotional health is extremely real and I vow to get the help I need. I appreciate all of the people who have reached out in support of me and my family, including our community here in Seattle. I am grateful to have such an amazing wife, family and support system to lean on during this time."

Sherman was arrested early Wednesday after police said he crashed his car in a construction zone along a busy highway east of Seattle and then tried to break into his in-laws' home in the suburb of Redmond, Washington. Raymond Moss told officers that he armed himself with a handgun and fired pepper spray as Sherman tried to bust in the door with his shoulder.

Officers were cautious about arresting Sherman because of his size, strength and belligerence, according to police reports released Thursday. Sherman displayed "severe mood swings and slurred speech, had bloodshot, watery eyes, and had the odor of intoxicants emitting from his person" during contact with authorities, according to the reports. Sherman told authorities there that he was upset over his children being taken from him, the reports said.

After he allegedly resisted arrest, Sherman's mood seemed to lighten once he was in custody and he even joked about the form the trooper had used to take him to the ground, according to the police reports. Sherman was "polite and cooperative" at the hospital where he was taken to be treated for a police dog bite he suffered during the altercation with authorities, the reports said.

Sherman was released without bail after a hearing Thursday. As terms of his release, Sherman was ordered not to have contact with his father-in-law, not to use alcohol or nonprescription drugs, and not to possess a weapon.

In February, King County prosecutors and the sheriff obtained an "extreme risk protection order'' for Sherman, which barred him from having guns after a judge determined he posed a danger to himself or others. Details of the case were sealed, and it was not immediately clear whether any weapons had been seized from him.

Richard Sherman releases statement following arrest: 'I vow to get the help I need'

Since Sherman's arrest on Wednesday, information has come out that's helped paint a picture of what Sherman, his wife Ashley, and her family went through leading up to the police's involvement. 

A woman who identified herself as Sherman's wife made a 911 call that night, which was obtained by ESPN and ABC News. During the call, the woman says Sherman was "drunk and belligerent," "being aggressive," and "threatening to kill himself." During the call, she asks the dispatcher to promise that police won't shoot, because Sherman would likely try to fight them if they tried to arrest him. The dispatcher told her that there were no weapons. The woman later called back to alert authorities that Sherman was possibly traveling to her parents' home.

In addition to the audio of the 911 call, a video of surveillance footage was obtained by KOMO News' Alfred Charles. It shows Sherman, outside his in-laws' home, swearing and demanding his father-in-law Raymond Moss come out of the house. When he doesn't appear, Sherman starts trying to break down the door while people inside the house can be heard screaming. Sherman eventually stumbles away after trying to break down the door a few more times. 

Sherman then had an altercation with local police who had come to the scene and were attempting to arrest him, and K-9 unit dogs had to get involved to apprehend him. He was taken to the hospital to check for injuries and then was booked and taken to jail. He was initially held without bail until he could go before a judge, which is standard procedure for domestic violence arrests. 

Sherman was originally arrested on suspicion of "burglary domestic violence," a felony, which was dropped at his hearing on Thursday. While he was charged with a domestic violence offense, no one was harmed during the incident, and Sherman's wife wasn't in her parents' house at the time. "Domestic violence" is used because of the familial relationship between Sherman and his in-laws. 

Washington State Police are also investigating a one-car hit-and-run involving a car that was registered in Sherman's name. 

Following his arrest, Sherman's wife released a short statement about her husband to the Seattle Times.

“At this time we’re going to make no statements, except he didn’t harm anybody,” Moss said. “My kids were not harmed in the incident. He’s a good person and this is not his character. We’re doing all right, just trying to get him out. I want people to know no one was injured.”

Sherman appeared in court Friday, where he pleaded not guilty to all five charges against him. Those charges include "criminal trespass in the second degree with a domestic-violence element, reckless endangerment of roadway crews, driving under the influence, resisting arrest and malicious mischief with a domestic-violence element," according to Pro Football Talk.

Sherman, a 10-year NFL veteran who spent seven years with the Seattle Seahawks and three with the San Francisco 49ers, was released without bail at his hearing on Thursday.
