Queen Bey and Old White Republicans

Queen Bey’s Superbowl appearance and dropping a new song has apparently set off the conservative Viagra set… Mere mention of blackness, the original Black Panthers, police, and BLM will do that.

Rudy Giuliani rips Beyoncé’s Super Bowl halftime as an “outrageous … attack on police officers”

Beyoncé anticipated this. She knew the backlash was coming as she sings in her new single “Formation,” “You know you that b**ch when you cause all this conversation.” With her imagery of police officers lined in riot gear with their arms in the air in her music video and her background dancers dressed as Black Panthers during her halftime performance at Super Bowl 50, Beyoncé is undoubtedly making a bold political statement and as she surely expected, people are talking.

“I thought it was really outrageous that she used it as a platform to attack police officers who are the people who protect her and protect us, and keep us alive,” former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani said Monday on “Fox & Friends,” ripping the performance as “ridiculous.”

Cuz nothing brings us all together better than angry @Beyonceshaking her ass & shouting “Negro” repeatedly.

“The vast majority of police officers risk their lives to keep us safe,”Giuliani explained, taking issue with what he deemed an inappropriate “political position” at the Super Bowl. “What we should be doing in the African-American community, and all communities, is build up respect for police officers,” he offered. “You’re talking to middle America when you have the Super Bowl,” Giuliani reminded the co-hosts. “Let’s have, you know, decent wholesome entertainment, and not use it as a platform to attack the people who, you know, put their lives at risk to save us.”

I don’t usually hashtag but the fact that they invited Beyoncé to perform an anti-police song during the Super Bowl is infuriating & inflammatory. They should be ashamed of themselves.

According to the Washington Examiner, Members of the National Sheriffs’ Association meeting in Washington, D.C. collectively turned their backs during the halftime performance to protest Beyoncé. The group’s president, Sheriff Danny Glick of Laramie County, Wyoming, “called on the NFL to choose less controversial half time entertainment in the future.”

Superbowl XLV

Ok, the game is over, and congrats to the Packers!

This year was a good and exciting game worthy of the billing, with a great story line of the Packers overcoming the adversity of injury to a several key players.

Best commercial? This one in my view:

A little of that Detroit Steel attitude, indeed.

Probably the worst halftime I can ever recall. The “music” (at least the first part I listened to) wasn’t much different than being down at Ft. Bragg, listening to the soldiers in training calling out marching cadences. This one was about as piss poor as it gets.

Thank Goodness for the mute button… And the Halftime snacks.

Now, if only my home team Redskins can find a coach…
