One of the locked out, whining NFL players is a huge Osama Bin Laden fan and is very upset that he was killed. After all, he claims, we haven’t heard “[Bin Laden's] side.” Yup, he actually tweeted this from his Twitter account.
Pittsburgh Steelers’ Rashard Mendenhall Hearts Bin Laden
The NFL lockout continues, but the Pittsburgh Steelers front office is working overtime to distance itself from and “clarify” pro-Osama Bin Laden comments from Islam-friendly NFL player and Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall. Mendenhall is upset that Osama Bin Laden is dead. Mendenhall might be Muslim. He frequently retweets extremist Muslim tweets on his Twitter account and follows the radical Twitter account, “Islamic Thinking.” Check out his absurd tweets below, one of which (the one about how “we’ve only heard one side”) he erased on the advice of Steeler PR flacks. As you read these, remember that this schmuck is one of the NFL Players suing the NFL because they are not making enough multi-millions.
Mendenhall previously compared his multi-million dollar NFL contract with “slavery.” Mendenhall is a 9/11 truther and a nutjob who doesn’t deserve to be in the NFL–which, if the lockout ends in time, is scheduled to host its first regular season game on the tenth anniversary of 9/11.
My fave part of his tweets below is his claim that “we’ve only heard one side.” Um, Rashard, we heard Bin Laden’s side plenty of times . . . from the loud explosions of planes flying into the towers and the Pentagon to the sounds of the towers falling to the sound of the plane crashing in a field in Pennsylvania. Oh, and then there were the sounds of the ambulances, the funerals without bodies or just a few body parts identified months later with DNA. The wails of wives, husbands, and children, now widowed or orphaned. And we also heard Bin Laden’s many annoying propaganda-filled, anti-American videos.
We heard that side, Rashard Mendenhall. You just refused to listen. Schmuck.
By the way, in case you were wondering, Michael Vick is consistent. He believes in the same treatment for Bin Laden AND dogs.
