It’s not as bad as liking Kate Smith’s version of “God Bless America,” of course, but defensive end Nick Bosa, the San Francisco 49ers pick with the second choice in the NFL draft today, has set off a controversial scandal by not liking Beyonce’s music. Moreover, Black Panther is his least favorite Marvel movie. From the New York Times:

[Nick] Bosa, 21, a talented [white] pass-rusher out of Ohio State, recently deleted several tweets about political and racial subjects. Asked why he had done so, he told ESPN it was in his interest to scrub his social media accounts. “There is a chance I might end up in San Francisco,” he said.

One tweet called Beyoncé’s music “complete trash.” Another described “Black Panther,” a film widely seen as a triumph for pop-culture representations of black people, as the worst Marvel movie. Others reportedly expressed support for President Trump. And Bosa’s reference to the City by the Bay — the 49ers hold the second overall pick on Thursday — apparently alluded to a 2016 tweet in which Bosa called Colin Kaepernick a “clown.”

    Just because you beat the criminal charges doesn’t mean you are free of civil liability.

    It seems the Osundairo brothers are going after Mr. Smollett for defamation. With he and his mouthpiece proclaiming innocence, he is effectively calling the brothers liars? Anyone think the brothers won’t get anywhere with this?

    This could be worse than when John Elway refused to go to Baltimore.

    This is OT, but, speaking of Baltimore, last summer I made a small attempt to start a satirical little paper to be sold for a dollar by the panhandlers who work all of Baltimore’s major intersections. I only put out 16 issues, but, from the fact that sales had begun to spike on the day a new issue came out, I know it is a viable idea.

    A frequent target of ridicule was Mayor Catherine Pugh whom I lampooned as corrupt, absent, and leaving the city’s welfare in the hands of her “spokesman”, Ben G. Horowitz.

    Here is the cover of Issue #2:

    Now, of course, it’s clear that I was on point. The funny thing was, I surmised most of what I knew of her personal administration from my interactions with various city agencies.

    Here is the main story:

When my son told me this evening that Bosa had called Kapaernick a clown and supported Trump, I told him “I like him already.” This guy could have a swastika tattooed to his chest but if he can help bring a championship back to the Bay, he’ll be welcomed. If Jimmy G stays healthy, this could be a turn around season for us!

    Whenever I read this I just think of the image of a badly rendered rhino being called into existence by the guy from Get Out.

    And does the NYT accept it to be possible to even feel Black Panther is a triumph for pop-culture representations of black people and also the worst Marvel movie? Isn’t the explicit implication in that language that at a major level the film isn’t for white dudes. Why are they expected to love it to the same degree?

  16. If he gets sacks and QB hits and tackles-for-loss nobody will remember.

    If he doesn’t get sacks, it is only going to be one more episode in recent 49er’s ineptitude. It seems like 25 years ago Harbaugh was the coach and Kapernick was the QB and they went to two NFC championship games and a super bowl. What happened?

    ESPN says the guy the Raiders took with the 4th overall pick is the 21st best player in the draft. I think the unPC tweets are nothing. A lot of lists have Bosa the best player in the draft.

    Of course, if say a black hockey player decided to be vocal about his dislike of some of the cultural preferences of his majority white team mates, it would be considered brave or groundbreaking.

  32. Nick Bosa looks a bit flabby to me. I look just like Bosa, except I’m a bit more chiseled and ripped.

    My advice to Bosa would be to eat chili, cheese crackers, ice cream and cheap ale. Combine that with extremely moderate exercise — walking — and Bosa could look like me, if he put his mind to it.

  47. Apparently, he thinks this is Europe, where Neoliberal Uniparty politicians aren’t quite as controlled by corporate money. Europeans have control over their online content by law. They are also protected from the many smaller internet companies, scamming dough by tossing the Fourth Amendment completely in the trash can, right down to letting any Tom, Dick or Harry know how many people are in your home, how much money they make, their ages, etc. You have no control whatsoever over that information peddling; it is done by many companies without any participation on their sites.

    That sort of thing has always gone on behind the scenes in the financial services industry, but only corporate employees who have been through background checks have access to the information, not that all of them are fastidious, careful employees—not even close. They are almost 100% womb-productive, with spousal income or access to welfare and refundable child tax credits that make up for the low, non-rent-covering pay. If you think that all of those who have produced kids through womb-productive sex are moral and professional, then you should feel safe, regardless of your profession. Otherwise, you should pay other companies to protect your data, provided you have the extra money to do so.

    A professional football player has plenty of extra money to protect his overall data—the typical, underemployed worker in a nation with 95 million citizens (16 to 65) out of the labor force, where the average employee works part-time, not so much.

    a film widely seen as a triumph for pop-culture representations of black people

    Not to put word’s into Pauline Kael’s holy typewriter, but if she could respond to this, she might point out that bad movies are regularly memorable for technical reasons. That’s pretty much what action movies are. Once you get over films having to be universally perfect, there’s all kinds of filmgoing fun to be had seeing an under-loved flick that got a few things out of the park, or accomplished something notable.
    It illustrates leftist cultishness that nothing can be 80% or good on a few points, no, it has to be glowing with heavenly light and perfect in every way. This is how people in cults talk. There are no Tuesday afternoons, there are no days where nothing especially bad or good happens, everything is either an orgasm or a car crash.
    ——–
    Leftists rightly complained for years about Fox News using “some people say” to mean “we think,” but now leftist mass media fits into every other sentence a citeless attribution to anonymous millions, who always passionately agree with the writer or speaker. This is frequently used to present lies or debunked possibilities as either fact or relevant.

    Concerns, on the part of many, that Russia interfered in the 2016 election

    Widespread outrage over the President’s latest tweet

    The fear voiced across the country that police brutality is targeting unarmed young black men

    The unnerving and uncomfortable fact, which more and more people every day are facing, that Ana de Armas is stalking me

    The growing national certainty of the world’s perfect flatness

    The unstoppable juggernaut of popular sentiment regarding the formal canonization of Yogi Berra even though he was not Catholic

    The San Francisco 49ers play football in Santa Clara*, a fairly decent suburb of San José notwithstanding the rampant mental illness of the entire state of Mexinchifornia. Ain’t a lot of junkies and faeces in the streets of Santa Clara, kids; it’s fifty miles and an hour’s drive (assuming no traffic, har har!) from San Francisco. Even San José is not a very nasty city as large cities go; its level of crime and filth is more akin to, say, San Diego’s than San Francisco’s (which is to say, not awfully remarkable).

    If a fellow like Bosa wound up playing in Santa Clara, I expect he’d just do what all mentally sound people who found themselves needing to be in the region do, anyway: buy a house in Saratoga, Walnut Creek, or even farther afield (Monterey, Elk Grove…); drive (more likely be driven!) in for work in Santa Clara and elsewhere; and otherwise live as the rich do everywhere from San Francisco and New York to Shreveport and Boise: isolated and insulated from the horrors suffered by the little people and not much bothered about any of it either way.

    Beyonkey actually isn’t that bad a singer given decent material, but her records are pure crap. But that’s what her market wants. I assume her handlers have told her, “Do what we say and you’ll make a lot of money”. Whether she has the self awareness to make sure that money stays hers is another matter: most blacks don’t but then again a hell of a lot of white bands, some with people I personally can vouch for having a decent IQ, famously went tits up financially too.

    I assume white male teens detest her music for the same reason white teen males detested whatever was popular on Top 40 and preferred Rush, Zep and Floyd in my high school days: because adults hated it. Anyone 35-40+ in 1975-80 listened to them and said, phooey. That was their parents’ ages so they liked it.

Football was a sport I played in HS and JC and have loved since I was a young boy. Football was originally a working class white man’s game and I’m not giving it up. Negro culture has infested everything – movies, music, sports, lingo, clothing, now theater, and pretty much all forms of urban recreation. Whites are running out of things to give up and retreat from.

    I don’t buy the merchandise and don’t go to the stadiums. So they get none of my money.

    Still ran out of the ability to get interested after Civil War. Maybe Logan cured me. More likely becoming a parent.

    I thought his description of san fran as, ” a playground for the cocksuckers ” may have been a little gratuitous but other than that hes a straight shooter ?

    That’s an allusion to Cubs manager lee elia’s famous diatribe of course. ” 85% of the worlds working, the rest come on here to comment. ” he famously said.

    Bosa fans will come out of the woodwork and they will be rooting for more than just him.

    OT but it would be interesting to see where the 49ers would be today if Eddie deBartolo never had to give up the franchise. Since the York’s took over it has been one long cringe to the point where many former fans could careless what happens. The same for sharing TV revenues. It is painful to watch 2nd and 3rd tier metro areas building teams off of teams like the 9ers and Cowboys. The only upside is that the 49ers now get things like second pick in the first round.

    I have never seen that before.

    On my browser the access denied graphic has a link which describes itself as “you can watch it here” which goes to youtube and works.

    If you search on “j. j. watt pick six andy dalton bengals” you should be able to find it in Tajikistan because it is an immensely popular video.

    I put up with the first Iron Man flick because I would watch Downey in anything* and the marketing was very brazen about it having a semi-autobiographical angle. The sequence of having a triumphalist war profiteer shoved into combat is really good, it’s almost like when filmmakers knew how to make satire. The cartoon robot fight at the end can be skipped, it had no hope of being more gripping than the sunlight peeking through the humvee armor.

    **Downey if you’te reading this make grown-up movies again, make a movie about the Panama Papers or the Sacklers lobbying to legalize opium, it would be cash.

    A lot of that negro culture was created by great Americans. I don’t detest it, I take well-earned pride in it. That’s our team showing out.

    I’ve given up football because I hate Roger Goodell and everything his ilk stands for or refuses to stand for. Money and time-wise it doesn’t make sense (for me or our country) anymore either.

    Football was originally a white upper middle class college sport

    The vibe I get from Moochelle and Beyonce’s legions of fanatical female fans is black female triumphalism. That all women of all races must worship her. That Queen Bey (as they call her) is an ideal model for all women. You deviate from this racial party line and her twitter armies will bury you in an avalanche of nasty, nasty tweets.

  88. I guess ESPN and the Times are either seeking to get Bosa the John Rocker treatment, or turned into a quadriplegic.

    Which is why I don’t do social media. Well, one reason, anyway.

    Pretty sure when the creditors come calling that war machine will have little trouble pulling a Roger Stone raid on Fred Reed or you or whomever else they damn well please.

    How’d that work out for The Man the last time he tried it on Linh Dinh’s neck of the woods (noticeably omitted from your quip)…? How’s it working our in Afghanistan? Pakistan? Somalia? Iraq, even? Say, remember how the F.U.S.A. dragged Ed Snowden crying like a bitch out of Moscow while the Red Army cowered in fear?

    Removing compliant old men from their houses in the F.U.S.A. ain’t the same thing as starting shit with real shit-starters, and the F.U.S.A. ain’t been up for the latter since around 1945 at the latest….
