He did what many of our parents did to (for) us. He was doing what many absent black fathers won’t do, and he’s being punished for it.
A grand jury has indicted star NFL running back Adrian Peterson on a felony charge of injury to a child, spurring the Montgomery County, Texas, Sheriff’s Office to issue a warrant for his arrest. Authorities didn’t divulge details Friday about what led to the charge. But Peterson’s lawyer said the “charged conduct involves using a switch to spank his son” — explaining that his client did so while doling out discipline “much like “he experienced as a child growing up in east Texas.”
The Minnesota Vikings came back a short time later to announce that its offensive catalyst has been deactivated for Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots.
Clearly, the liberal ninnies hate the “violent” nature of the NFL (I’d be very surprised if all-things-women advocate Kim Gandy can tell us the name of the team that plays in Charlotte), their media is running with fast and loose conclusions, dragging the domestic violence-thing out as long as it will elevate their deservedly poor ratings.
What’s most frustrating is the media selective outrage and hypocrisy.
This is Obama’s America. It’s like the Soviet Union. He said he’d change the country. He said it. He said it. He said it. And a lot of people voted for him. And if you see any of those people today, punch them in the face.

Wasn’t that the high-and-mighty Andrea Tantaros calling for violence?
I just mention this to set up the fact that Tantaros is very capable of saying stupid things, like telling people to do something she’d never have the guts to do herself. Granted, we all know she wasn’t serious but that didn’t stop her from saying more stupid shit.
Had any man today used Tantaros’ words we’d be talking extended mea culpas followed by suspension or worse. But when a woman’s big mouth is activated, we’re all supposed to look the other way. Ask Janay Rice how that works, and kudos for Greg Gutfeld interjecting that inconvenient truth called “facts”.
Black males experienced intimate partner violence at a rate about 62% higher than that of white males and about 22 times the rate of men of other races.

Maybe Tantaros should spend a little time on the World Star Hip Hop video site to see some Janays at their non-violent, “victim” finest.
Ray Rice lost his job over an off-the-field incident where no charges were filed, he was suspended by the team for two games until “TMZ Sports” strategically released another view of the elevator incident and was fired from the pussified Baltimore Ravens organization. I say “pussified” because Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder is seemingly the only high profile sports personality to give a middle finger to the politically correct liberal media who seeks blood whenever anyone’s weak sensitivities have been bruised.
Atlanta Hawks majority owner Bruce Levenson had to sell his stake of the team after emails from 2012 were revealed that on the surface would send your average hypersensitive black into convulsions, but were inconveniently true and something any business owner should rightfully consider.
Now, every sports personality, male, female, active, retired, has something to bloviate when it comes to the male-on-female domestic violence pile-on. We never hear anything when it happens the other way around like that loud, violent woman in Hawaii.
And now Adrian Peterson has been taken off the field because he was disciplining his son.
When investigators questioned Peterson, they say he told them he regarded it as a normal spanking and not excessive. A grand jury seated earlier this summer decided not to charge him.
Wonder what changed their minds?
I was hesitant to look at this as a race issue but both Rice and Peterson’s cases were initially examined by the authorities and laid to rest, that is until the liberal media raised it to a double-jeopardy level that ended with black men being abnormally punished.
Imagine what this country would look like if there were more black fathers disciplining their sons? But no, now that’s a criminal offense.
Because we ARE (for the most part) talking about liberals, let’s see what happens when the next celebrity commits an act that pushes the buttons of the media royalty. If you impose the new “Rice Rule”, there had better be people fired and banned from their professions.
The next senator who lets a woman drown in his car should not be able to serve four more decades and receive a dignitary’s funeral. I don’t want to hear any excuses like “He (or she) was elected by the people and can’t be removed”. The next president who commits multiple acts of sexual harassment in a workplace (especially a federal workplace) should be removed immediately and not be left to serve out his term just because his wife could live with it. The next cable news host who settles his sexual harassment case out of court should be fired and banned from television because we all know women NEVER make this stuff up.
If you think about it, Tantaros was not only being truthful but she was showing us all just how little those overpaid big mouths on cable news think of their consumers. Whether it be self-righteous blowhards like Bill O’Reilly, Erin Burnett, Bill Maher, Al Sharpton, Eric Bolling, Nancy Grace, Carol “barf bag” Costello, Mark Levin, Andrea Mitchell, Harvey Levin and “TMZ Sports” as well as all the other originality-challenged talkers who’ve jumped on the bus Ray Rice was thrown under, they should be very careful because they’ve immortalized their over-dramatic opines thus they’ve set a standard they’ll be expected to live by.
Should they screw up, it will be very interesting to watch the contortions and whiny justifications they’ll perform to save their jobs, we’ll be as forgiving as they were, and they won’t like that a bit.
