In an OP-ED for the Daily Beast Corbin Smith claimed that the Patriots are the team of ‘white nationalists’ over the fact that Robert Kraft, Bill Belichick, and Tom Brady support Donald Trump.
Their star quarterback, coach, and owner all supported Trump. But that’s not the only thing that makes the Patriots the preferred team of white nationalists https://t.co/C1KnQNXa9b

WE’RE STILL HERE! WE’RE STILL HERE! Obviously, Brady is referring to his aging, decrepit, cheating-ass squad’s progression to the big game. But, imagine you didn’t know anything about football, or who Tom Brady was, or anything like that. You would think that you were watching some square-jawed grifter throwing red meat to the hogs at an alt-right rally, screaming at the libs who thought Nancy Pelosi and her gender warriors were gonna keep DECENT AMERICAN FOLKSfrom BEING HERE.
I have no clue what point is being made here. He admits what Brady is saying has nothing to do with politics so why it is being made political makes no sense. If people didn’t know who Tom Brady was they’d likely use this thing called Google to find out who he was and realize that he is probably talking about Football.
Of course, even if you do know stuff about Brady you may still think he’s on his way to pursuing this line of grifting. He flashed a red MAGA hat, an accoutrement that is gaining more and more traction as a symbol of white nationalism in America, in his locker back in the primary days. He wasn’t the only one! Patriots’ Coach Bill Belichick wrote a goddamn letter to Trump right before the end of the campaign that basically amounted to an endorsement, that Trump then read on stage. And Pats’ owner Robert Kraft is also his pal, and was even shouted out at Trump’s pre-Inauguration dinner in D.C. for his most deep-pocketed donors.
So here is his main argument. Supporting Donald Trump automatically means you are a White Nationalist.
Let’s look at some success of the Trump Presidency and see if these line up with what a White Nationalist would want:
These are just a few of the success under Donald Trump. White Nationalists are not exactly asking for African Americans to flow into the workforce but that won’t stop people like Corbin from perpetuating that lie.
His most disgusting argument was his attack on the Covington Student who branded the MAGA hat at the March for Life in D.C:
Remember that scumbag teen, bused into DC by his racist-ass private school to protest a woman’s right to choose, smirking at a Native American military veteran while wearing that dumb little red hat as his schoolmates stood around and did tomahawk chops? Remember how, at first, everyone saw what was happening for what it was, entitled little shits being racist and disrespectful, until this kid’s wealthy parents hired a PR firm to run interference and coach him up to do an interview where, even if he was saying the right things on paper, he still seemed like a low-boil sociopath?
We debunked this Covington narrative easily and Corbin’s argument simply has no basis in reality:
There is more to the OP-ED but it is just more race-baiting nonsense that has nothing to do with reality.
The bottom line is that it is truly disgusting to claim a group of people are white nationalists for liking a Football team they have grown up liking. This is coming from someone who is a Giants fan and has hated the Patriots for pretty much ever.
For the first time in my life, I’m likely going to be rooting for the Patriots just to see the bullies in the Media Meltdown.
