The main stream media (MSM) both news and entertainment, are the primary communication arm of the Progressive movement in the United States, spear headed by the Democrat Party. And not satisfied to control the vast majority of the media, liberals continue to circulate petitions on social media to ban FOX News.
Yet some people are surprised to learn that progressives also control sports media. See Keith Olbermann and Bob Costas for details.
Ray Rice has become a political pawn in a very dirty game of politics in this election year.
For knocking his fiance unconscious and dragging her out of an elevator by her hair, NFL running back Ray Rice received a two game suspension from Roger Goodell. New Jersey Superior Court Judge Michael Donio and D.A. Jim McClain consulted the victim (Mrs. Rice) and agreed to put her husband in a New Jersey deferred adjudication/diversion program for first time offenders. This happens in tens of thousands of criminal cases every year in the United States. Like it or not, it’s what is usually done not the exception, in the majority of first time criminal offender cases.
Some saw injustice but the left-wing main stream media saw a political opportunity to shore up the Democrat Party female voter base. In the post Obama era, the Democrats are confident that they have over 90% of the African American votes locked up. Suburban women are the key to victory for both Parties in National elections.
It’s women who will determine the outcome of the November elections and nobody knows this more than Democrats who are in serious danger of losing control of the Senate. So abortion rights and domestic abuse became core issues at the direction of the pollsters and professional “progressives” who control the Democrat Party purse strings. Everything is always about money and politics. Make no mistake about it, the Democrats are the self appointed PC Police for a reason.
The MSM has not missed an opportunity to keep the Ray Rice two game suspension, front and center in the hopes of growing the Democrat female base before the November elections. So after TMZ paid for the release of the second elevator video of Ray Rice striking his fiance (now wife) and posted it at 1am this morning, the left wing media sprung into action. Outrage was the order of the day.
It doesn’t matter that Ray Rice had already admitted his crime and agreed to the terms of his probation/rehabilitation including speaking out against domestic violence, paying a fine and donating to women’s shelters. It doesn’t matter that Rice was serving his two game suspension and was scheduled to return to work next week. Neither Due Process nor any of the Bill of Rights matter to liberal fascists, unless they promote their progressive agenda.
The media, being controlled by progressive hypocrites saw the TMZ tape as a political opportunity and sprung into action before the sun rose this morning. I watched and listened, as did the NFL. Before noon, Rice had been cut from the Baltimore Ravens and banned for life from the NFL.
Liberals are celebrating and gloating over the fact that due process has been trumped for their political gain.
Rice was already punished by both the NFL and justice system for his crime. We may not agree with the suspension/sentence but justice was done and his wife signed off on his deferred adjudication. Mrs. Rice not the media was the victim of the crime. Mr. Rice as the perpetrator and he took full responsibility and confessed to his crime to both the NFL and a New Jersey Judge.
The world had already seen Mr. Rice dragging an apparently unconscious Mrs. Rice out of a casino elevator over and over again. Mr. Rice admitted that he was responsible for the battery that rendered Mrs. Rice unconscious.
The release of another video showing the single blow that knocked Mrs. Rice unconscious added nothing to the facts. Ray Rice had already admitted his guilt and been suspended by the NFL and adjudicated in a New Jersey court.
Can anyone articulate another reason besides politics why Ray Rice was fired and banned for life today? In fact, the NFL had announced after the Rice two game suspension that future first time domestic violence violations would result in a 6 game suspension. A second violation would result in a lifetime ban.
So the NFL has taken one domestic violence incident and multiplied it by two so they could ban Rice for life? Politics is a dirty business. And no politicians are dirtier than hypocrite progressives.
You think that Mrs. Rice, the victim, is happy that the PC media has succeeded in destroying her husbands ability to earn a living. At the very least, the NFL ban has cost Mrs. Rice half of the $21 $9.5 million that Ray Rice was contracted to be paid in the future. I wonder if Mrs. Rice thinks this is justice?
Ray Rice and Janay Palmer can be heard shouting obscenities at each other, and she appears to spit in the face of the three-time Pro Bowl running back and former Rutgers star right before he throws a knockout punch in a video shown to The Associated Press by a law enforcement official.
The video, shown to the AP Monday night, includes audio and is longer than the grainy TMZ Sports video released earlier that day. After the TMZ video went viral, the Baltimore Ravens cut Rice and the league suspended him indefinitely. Rice was originally suspended for two games and coaches and others had praised his behavior since the arrest for striking his then-fiancee in February.
The videos show Rice and Palmer in an elevator at an Atlantic City casino. Each hits the other before Rice knocks Palmer off her feet and into a railing. Months ago, a TMZ video showed Rice dragging Palmer, now his wife, from the elevator at the Revel casino, which closed on Sept. 2.
The higher-quality video shown to the AP shows Rice made no attempt to cover up the incident. After Palmer collapses, he drags her out of the elevator and is met by some hotel staff. One of them can be heard saying, “She’s drunk, right?” And then, “No cops.” But Rice didn’t respond.
The video was shown to the AP on condition of anonymity because the official isn’t authorized to release it.
