SCHMUCK: Pittsburgh Steeler Rashard Mendenhall Feels for Bin Laden; “We’ve Only Heard One Side”

By Debbie Schlussel

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.

I guess every innocent person murdered by bin Laden isn’t speaking loud enough for Rashard

Hey Rashard… Go F**K yourself! How’s that for one sided conversation?

    Its me but I’d say let’s toss him in the ocean so he can get to hear the other side of the story.

    The guy’s too cowardly to follow up on his own repulsive beliefs.

I wonder how he feels about that poor misunderstood Mr. Hitler.

If the Pittsburgh football fans had an iota of patriotism besides waving the flag and chanting “USA” in brutish voices, they would boycott the Steelers this season, and call the front office and tell them why.

Don’t hold your breath waiting for this to happen. Footballs fans are loyal to their multi-millionaire glandular defects for which they root.

Well if the NFL doesnt work out, maybe Fox News can hire him on as an anchor….because we know his comments were “only meant to encourage anyone reading it to think.”
Meanwhile, teammates blame social media. Similar to blaming book-burning pastors for muslim violence I guess. Social media didnt invent stupidity, it highlights it. If you dont want the world to know how smart or dumb you truly are, dont get a fb or twitter account. Seems simple enough to me.

Too many “facts” most stated by the honest mouth of Obama’ or his staff.

There was a firefight – then there was not.
Osama was armed and shot at them – then he wasn’t even armed.
No internet connection – but many hard drives found.
Completely destroyed their crashed helicopter – photos clearly show it was not.

Same guy who wouldn’t show a birth cerftificate he always had until his rating hit a low.

Daughter of Osama tells Pakistan they took a body AND A LIVE PERSON with them onto their helicopter then flew away.

And Obama says we have positive proof he is dead as we have his DNA.

DNA tested only by his people but since when does DNA prove someone is dead.

So which of that lying leftist fraud Obama’s lies do you believe?

I think a lot of these celebrities are so narcissistic it’s almost like they’re competing with the Bin Laden story. Trying to downplay Bin Laden and also get attention for themselves with intentionally ignorant and controversial statements.

Joey P. on May 5, 2011 at 3:32 pm

The President of the USA is NOT supposed to be a lying POS!

Bill C. on May 5, 2011 at 4:06 pm

Between this idiot and the other player who whined that being paid $2,000,000 was slavery, I hope the current NFL strike/lockout continues for several years.

Heywood U Buzzoff on May 5, 2011 at 4:11 pm

This is a league that will not allow Rush limbaugh. ESPN black racist journalist like Mike Wilbon say what Dan Gilbert said about LebRon is racist and should be fine but said that this idiot should not be punished by the league or team.

Hopefully, this guy will be replaced by Baron Batch of Texas Tech who was the only running back drafted by Pittsburg. Batch is the classiest of the classy!

As a Steelers fan, I am disappointed and disgusted with Rashard Mendenhall, how can he have sympathy for OBL, doesn’t he know that Bin Laden is one of the most ruthless human beings to ever be bought into this world? We all know that Osama and al-queda were responsible for 9/11/01 and probably Al-Zwahiri? As for Mendenhall being a 9/11 Truther, he also lost respect for me as a Steelers fan, Debbie, I agree with you, he shouldn’t be playing in the NFL for any of the 32 teams with that nutty thinking. I won’t be surprise if the fans in Heinz Field boo him for saying something insane. JG, there are Steeler fans who happen to be conservative and very patriotic to this country, for Ilano, I think Coach Tomlin will make Baron Batch the #1 tailback for the Steelers, the kid was very good at Texas Tech. Heck, Batch had some good games against my NCAA team (Kansas State Wildcats) rushing the football. I think the Steelers front office should cut Mendenhall for having too much sympathy for Bin Laden and being a 9/11 Truther!

I bet Osama owned black slaves (‘abid) while in the Sudan in the ’90s. No proof, though, just conjecture.

Philip_Daniel on May 5, 2011 at 5:28 pm

Pro football is fixed anyway. Mendenhall is being the “bad guy” wrestler. It’s not just part of the act though, you can tell that he’s a genuine dickhead.

CornCoLeo on May 5, 2011 at 6:14 pm

Hey, if he’s a running back, snap! goes the ACL!

Occam's Tool on May 5, 2011 at 8:52 pm

That picture of bin laden…probably the look on his face when the Navy SEALS rudely awoke him from his slumber 🙂
“oh holy shiite!…where’s my damn”…POP!!POP!!POP!!…

Wow……….what a fool. Can’t quite compose myself to admit how dumbfounded I feel that this pig-headed loser must have graduated from my proud university. Lets’s see; another african-american for whom Christianity or at least Judeo-Christian freedom is not *Quite….* good enough. Completely ignores how Islam actually views blacks as totally inferior (uh, stupid Rashard Malcolm X…are you listening??) Ignores the fact that Muslim Africa is crap, and brutal. I suppose stupid Rashard really thinks that life is really all about men just dominating women, and killing anyone who disagrees with you. Tons of black dudes get so attracted to Islam being the NOBLE “alternative” to Christianity; uh, you forgot the noble SAVAGES part, dumbass!!
-disgusting loser……Illinois reject.

“I make millions playing a game but my contract makes me like a slave.” – Rashard Mendenhall as he drives away in a Maserati to his mansion where he has people cooking and cleaning for him.

Things would be so much better if athletes would just stick to playing sports.

Tanstaafl on May 6, 2011 at 9:25 am

I actually don’t have much of a problem with this. I am one who doesn’t believe in the death penalty because it is inhumane. So even though taking down bin Laden was the right thing, I am uncomfortable with the cheering and screaming in the streets over his death. Just seems like something other countries do, not us.

colt13 on May 6, 2011 at 10:01 am

Even though Bin Ladin himself bragged about bringing the tower down and swore infront of the entire world by the “7 skies” and by allah that he will never stop attacking the United States until every single infidel leave the muslim countries… even though bin ladin himself said those worlds, Rashard you still don’t believe that he did it?

What a big foot bowl player you are with a brain size of an ant.

You are a muslim that’s why… what else is new

Sam on May 6, 2011 at 12:43 pm

I’m dissappointed but not surprised by the remarks of Mendenhall…moderate muslim. To study the koran…which I assume Rashad has done…and remain a muslim IS CRIMINAL INSANITY. That is what “moderate islam” is all about. To mourn the death of Osama is like mourning the death of Charly Manson or Adolph Hitler or Joe Stalin. These folks are insane beyond redemption and there’s a billion of em.

joesixpack31 on May 6, 2011 at 1:27 pm

Hmmm, Rashad Mendenhall – never heard of him, so, I guess I’m in with the 66% of 13 – 17 year olds (not that I’m that young) who had no clue who OBL is/was…BUT has anyone given any thought that this football player may have played too many games with INSUFFICIENT PROTECTIVE PADDING IN HIS HELMET??? The other side…indeed!

Dennis on May 6, 2011 at 1:41 pm


RASHARD…my bad…sorry.

Dennis on May 6, 2011 at 1:42 pm


RASHARD…not RASHAD…my bad…sorry.

Dennis on May 6, 2011 at 1:43 pm

Mendenhall claims: “we’ve only heard one side.” BUT haven’t we seen the videos from 9/11 of the islamic students on our college campuses dancing and celebrating endlessly the atrocities committed by their brethren the criminally insane jihadists. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you. Massive numbers of these free-loading muslims infesting our university campuses in the name of “multi culteralism”…and celebrating the massacre of 3000 fellow human beings. Does anyone recall, at the time of the 9/11 muslim campus celebrations, did mendenhall ask the question of his peace loving brethren: “how does God feel about your heart ??” OR was Rashard out there dancing and celebrating with them. I’d bet it was the second of these.

joesixpack31 on May 6, 2011 at 3:13 pm

Champion is a strong supporter of the government’s efforts to fight terrorism and is very appreciative of the dedication and commitment of the U.S. Armed Forces. Earlier this week, Rashard Mendenhall(notes), who endorses Champion products, expressed personal comments and opinions regarding Osama bin Laden and the September 11 terrorist attacks that were inconsistent with the values of the Champion…

jdiz on May 6, 2011 at 9:38 pm

Muslims(Saudis) have taken over 50,000 black people from Africa as slaves in the last ten years (mostly from Sudan). They are slaves because if they try to quit their job they are killed.

Truth on May 7, 2011 at 2:19 pm

I’m a Steeler fan, and I live in Steeler country … but Rashard Mendenhall is a nimrod, coconut-head moron muslim. I wish someone of higher authority would give two “one-way” plane tickets to fly the big-mouthed millionaire (who thinks he’s a slave) and his Islamic buddy, Barry ‘Hussein’ Obama off to Iran … never to be heard from again. Both of them are an embarrassment to our country.

B.J. on September 11, 2011 at 3:13 pm

I like the idea of him working for Fox News. Fox must be “fair and balanced” no matter how stupid it makes them look.
