Jordan Peterson Cuts Trans Individual Down to Size for Defeating Women in Weight Competition


Reported By Jared Harris | Published February 13, 2019 at 10:53am

Imagine for a moment you’re a female weightlifter.

For years, you’ve started every day with a run. You spend grueling hours in the gym and live with the sore muscles as a testament to that. Your diet is just as strict and regimented as your workout routine — every calorie and macronutrient is accounted for, and you force yourself to drink protein shakes between every meal.

Feeling prepared and at the top of your game, you enter a state powerlifting competition. All of your hard work is about to pay off. After watching the women competing, you’re sure that first place is yours.

But after the women’s division winners are announced, a 280-pound man walks up. The judges hand him a gold medal, and then he raises his hands in a victory pose.

You get a second-place ribbon. Better luck next year.

This could have been the story of any woman at January’s United States Powerlifting Association Minnesota State Championship. Despite the countless years of gym time between all of the women there, a man with a single year of training under his belt walked home with not only two women’s gold medals but one of their state records as well.

The man is JayCee Cooper, a 31-year-old amateur weightlifter who describes himself as “queer-n-trans” on his Instagram profile.

His championship victory didn’t sit right with everyone. The conservative clinical psychologist Jordan Peterson even weighed in on Cooper’s “accomplishment,” in his own sarcastic way.

“Such an impressive accomplishment,” Peterson wrote in a Twitter post. “Defeating all those women. And so quickly. And by such a margin. Miracle? Or narcissism of an incomprehensible quality?”

After sweeping the competition at the state championship, Cooper’s powerlifting ambitions were halted by an email from USA Powerlifting — the big dog of American lifting federations. As Cooper revealed in an interview with Compete Network: “The USAPL will not allow me to compete because I am a transfeminine person. And, according to them, it confers some sort of anatomical advantage, even though I’m not sure where they’re getting that ‘science.’”

Despite Cooper’s apparent lack of understanding about the fundamentals of biology, science is pretty clear on the subject of sex differences and physical ability. A Duke University study found that even Olympian Tori Bowie’s lifetime best 100-meter time (less than 11 seconds — an impressive speed) was shattered by men and boys over 15,000 times in a single year. And this is just for a 100-meter dash. Strength competitions will obviously have just as large of a disparity, if not a bigger one.

In the Compete Network interview, Cooper acknowledged he’s only been seriously into weight training for about a year. It’s a good bet the women he defeated at the competition have been training much, much longer than that.

Unfortunately for female athletes, it appears as though Cooper’s victory is emblematic of the unfair advantage they may often face in the future.

And leftists, obsessed with transgender causes,” are abandoning the very women they claim to be supporting.

A HUGE Dude Wins Women’s World Cycling Championship


Reported By K. Walker |

A biological male competing against biological women wins the competition. What. A. Shocker. Who could’ve seen this coming? The answer, of course, is anyone with any sense. The shocking part is that this athlete was allowed to compete against women at all.

ClashDaily has covered stories like this before:

WTF? Teen With Mustache Says ‘He’s A SHE’ And … POOF! There’s A NEW Female ‘TRACK STAR’

LMAO: Transgendered Strudel Hun Wins WOMEN’S Weightlifting Title

And this one where a biological girl taking testosterone to become male won a championship against other girls:

Watch: TransGendered High School Dudette Wins Wrestling Title – Is This BS?

Just last year the Olympics set out guidelines on how to include transgender athletes into international competition, and it’s rather controversial.

Allowing biological males to compete against biological women in ‘women’s sport’ is perfectly fine says the new World Cycling Champion. As a matter of fact, Professor McKinnon is an ‘expert’ in this very field of study — the new world champion of the UCI Masters Track Cycling Women 35-44 is tweets, ‘I’m an internationally recognized expert on the science and ethics of transgender inclusion in sport.‘

[Editor’s Note: To avoid confusion, and to follow the Associated Press Style Guide for news outlets, Rachel McKinnon, a Ph.D. in Philosophy will be referred to as ‘Professor’ rather than Dr.]This particular individual believes it is ‘discriminatory’ to force transgender women to suppress their natural testosterone.

I swear I’m not making that up.

So, just say you’re a woman and stay a biological male to compete?

McKinnon is also an Olympic hopeful.

But right now, Prof. McKinnon is reveling in the rush of the win.

A biological male who identifies as a transgender woman won a women’s world championship cycling event on Sunday.

Rachel McKinnon, a professor at the College of Charleston, won the women’s sprint 35-39 age bracket at the 2018 UCI Masters Track Cycling World Championships in Los Angeles.

McKinnon, representing Canada, bested Carolien Van Herrikhuyzen of the Netherlands and American cyclist Jennifer Wagner to take home the gold.

McKinnon celebrated the victory on Twitter, writing: “First transgender woman world champion…ever.”

Here it is, the pic with the gold medal:

Not fair, you say? Well, according to some transgender activists, that’s just straight-up bigotry.

Earlier this year, McKinnon and another transgender cyclist, Jillian Bearden, were profiled in USA Today to contrast their very different views on testosterone levels when including transgender athletes into sporting competitions. Bearden agrees with the Olympic guidelines that state that biological men with naturally occurring testosterone have a competitive advantage over biological women. McKinnon, however, says that subjecting transgender women to testosterone blockers violates their human rights and ‘furthers the oppression of transgender people.’

In other words, McKinnon is all for using biological men using their natural male hormones to compete against women in a women’s competition.

That is a level of insanity that is beyond words.

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Let’s look at some of Professor McKinnon’s words.

McKinnon says whether other competitors believe transgender women have an unfair advantage is irrelevant because she says there is no way to measure if such advantages even exist.

“This is bigger than sports and it’s about human rights,” McKinnon says. “By catering to cisgender people’s views, that furthers transgender people’s oppression. When it comes to extending rights to a minority population, why would we ask the majority? I bet a lot of white people were pissed off when we desegregated sports racially and allowed black people. But they had to deal with it.”

(Emphasis added.)

McKinnon says that it isn’t about what is fair and unfair in the rules — it’s a ‘human rights’ issue.

McKinnon, who teaches a class on ethics and inclusion at Charleston, cites the Olympic charter in saying that sport is a human right.

“We cannot have a woman legally recognized as a trans woman in society,” McKinnon says, “and not be recognized that way in sports. … Focusing on performance advantage is largely irrelevant because this is a rights issue. We shouldn’t be worried about trans people taking over the Olympics. We should be worried about their fairness and human rights instead.”

This is just unbelievable.

So, you can just say you’re female now — without any adjustment to hormone levels or surgery or anything and you’re allowed in a women’s competition?

That is insane!

Well, I guess we can kiss women’s sports goodbye thanks to the ‘inclusive’ left.

Where are all the feminists screaming about the ‘patriarchy’?

Oh, right.

They’re getting threatened with violence by trans activists.

You know who else this makes me think of?

Poor Lance Armstrong.

If only he’d known that he could’ve just identified as a woman and won every women’s championship, he might not have resorted to doping. Especially since a study done in 2017 appears to have revealed that the drug didn’t work anyway.

You live and you learn, I guess.

Today’s Politically INCORRECT Cartoons and a Few Memes


LIBERAL LOGIC: J.J. Watt Raises $37M For Hurricane Relief – GQ Gives Kaepernick ‘Citizen If The Year’


Published by ClashDaily.com | on November 14, 2017

Dear GQ — HERE is a real NFL hero. And it sure as heck ain’t Mr. Pig Socks.

In this upside-down good is bad and bad is good world that we now live in, slacktivist Colin Kaepernick, — whose claim to fame is not standing for the anthem — is showered with praise and named by GQ the ‘Citizen of the Year’, but J.J. Watt, an actual NFL player for the Houston Texans, raised millions of dollars in hurricane relief and a big ‘meh’ from GQ.

The three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year launched a fund on YouCaring.com to raise money for victims of Hurricane Harvey on Aug. 26 with an initial goal of $200,000. At the time, that seemed like a sizable yet attainable goal. In hindsight, perhaps Watt (and the rest of us) underestimated humanity’s goodwill and willingness to help others in need.

Watt recently closed the fundraiser after raising an astonishing $37,097,298, which is more than 185 times his initial goal. More than 200,000 people donated, meaning Watt got as many donors as he expected dollars.

Watch how he was received by fans:

His accomplishment was immense:

The fundraiser’s progress has been accelerated by a few big-time donations from billionaires. Charles Butt, who owns the San Antonio-based supermarket chain H-E-B, donated $5 million, while Tennessee Titans owner Amy Adams Strunk donated $1 million.

A number of celebrities have contributed to the cause; new Houston Rocket Chris Paul raised $50,000, H-Town lover Drake put up $200,000 and Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon announced that his program would donate $1 million.

The slight didn’t go unnoticed.

It’s official — Leftism is a mental disorder. It must be.

How else can you explain revering Kaepernick and ignoring Watt?

One Bar Dumped the NFL on Veterans Day and The Community Responded in a BIG Way


Reported By Warner Todd Huston November 14, 2017

It is well established that bars and restaurants rake in much of their cash on NFL game days and many fear a boycott of the NFL will hurt their bottom line. But this year on Veterans Day, as millions of Americans decided to boycott the NFL over its constant anti-American protests mounted during the playing of the national anthem, one bar in New Jersey decided to risk its bottom line to support America. And the community turned out in droves.

Bars are especially loathe to turn off the NFL, but the owners of Woody’s Roadside Tavern in Farmingdale, New Jersey, decided that patriotism and America meant more to them than money. So, Chris Maltese, one of the owners of Woody’s, decided to turn off the NFL especially on Veterans Day, according to APP.com.

If Maltese and his employees felt any trepidation over turning off the NFL last weekend, it turned out that they needn’t have worried. After their fellow citizens learned of the Veterans Day plans, they turned out by the dozens to fill the place with patriotism and revelry despite the absence of the anti-American protesters of the National Football League.

Woody’s announced that they were going to turn off the TVs on Veterans Day and were instead going to raise money for the Special Forces Association Chapter 19 and military families. And once word got out what the bar was planning, the town went wild.

Far from losing cash because they turned off the NFL, Woody’s found itself filled to capacity and even running out of glasses and cutlery for the customers.

“We’re not trying to be political here, we’re just trying to support our veterans,” Maltese said. “I think people are looking to have some kind of voice in the whole NFL thing… and this is their voice.”

Patrons of Woody’s were pleased with the bar’s decision to turn off football.

Bar patron Andy Barcellona is one who loved the bar’s decision. Barcellona, who is a former staff sergeant in the Army’s 3rd Infantry, entered Woody’s wearing a T-Shirt saying, “I stand for our flag,” said he was “kind of shocked” when he learned of the bar’s plans for Veterans Day. But he said he was all in because he is offended by the NFL’s constant anti-American protests.

“I was a diehard Giants fan… No more Giants. No more football,” Barcellona said. “The flag is more important than football.”

Other customers agreed:

“I haven’t watched a game since they started (the protest),” said Randy Lynd, 55, of Manasquan, a former Special Forces Green Beret who served 27 years in the Army.

Lynd, who said he served five tours in Afghanistan, expressed little sympathy for professional athletes who he said made millions of dollars each year while soldiers continued to fight and die for the flag.

“I think people doing the right thing should be supported,” he said outside of Woody’s as he gestured toward the restaurant. “This is the right thing.” 

In the end, the bar sponsored a mass Pledge of Allegiance and celebrated the U.S.A. instead of wasting their time with football. And the bar came away with more money than it ever made in a single day and raised money for our veterans at the same time.

Meanwhile, the NFL has proved that it still doesn’t get it.

The league even sponsored a disgusting Veterans Day commercial filled with some of the worst, anti-American protesters in the league peddling the lie that they love America and our veterans.

 Anthem protesters like the Philadelphia Eagles Chris Long and Malcolm Jenkins, the Seattle Seahawks Doug Baldwin, and the Tennessee Titans Delanie Walker all tried to pretend that they are still patriotic Americans despite their constant anti-American protests. They are trying to fool America into imagining that their protest is not against America, but is “only” about police brutality.

But that isn’t what the inventor of the national anthem protest said of his brainchild. In his own words, former San Francisco 49ers second-string quarterback Colin Kaepernick said that his protests were specifically meant as a protest against the United States of America and all it stands for.

This is what Kaepernick said in August of 2016, the year he started his protests:

I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. To me, this is bigger than football, and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder 

There you have it. In his own words, Kaepernick told us he couldn’t stand up for the flag or the country.

This is the same Colin Kaepernick who said the U.S. “has never been great.” He called our police “pigs” by wearing socks with cartoon police pigs on them. He outraged America’s Cuban immigrants by complimenting murderous communist dictator Fidel Castro and also wore a T-Shirt lionizing the murderous dictator.

So, don’t fall for the NFL’s lies. These protests continue to occur during the song that pays homage to this great nation, and the inventor of the protest was counting on just that to serve as a platform for his stand against the United States of America.

 

Week 10 Of The NFL Was BRUTAL! – Look What Goodell Is Now DEMANDING


Published by ClashDaily.com | on November 13, 2017

With nobody showing up even for the BIG games, Goodell is focused on more important things, like building crazy perks into his own new contract.

Leadership like his, where have we seen it last? Maybe Neville Chamberlain?

Or would you rather compare him to Nero fiddling while Rome burned?

What kind of judgment and leadership has Goodell been demonstrating?

Well, he’s taken NEITHER side on the anthem issue, with the predictable consequence of angering people on both sides of the issue.

ClashDaily’s Big Dawg takes Roger Goodell and the NFL to task beautifully:

But while ten weeks in, stadiums are only about half-filled, even for big rivalries like the Green Bay and Chicago, Goodell is busy trying to line his own pockets.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is reportedly asking for a $49.5 million annual salary and a private jet for life in contract negotiations with league owners.
“That number for Roger just seems too much,” an owner told ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen. “It’s offensive. It’s unseemly.”
Goodell’s latest proposal also included lifetime health insurance for his family. His current deal includes compensation of roughly $30 million per year.

Because a multi-millionaire shouldn’t have to cover his own health care expenses, amirite?

How do fans feel about Goodell’s list of demands, considering he’s not listening to yours?

Judging by all those empty seats, you’re not feeling appreciated at all.

The only thing you’d need to complete the picture is a tumbleweed or two to go rolling through them.

 

Even the bars are feeling the pinch.

 

Disabled Veteran Refuses to Accept Award from NFL Team


Editorial credit: Mitch Gunn / Shutterstock.com

How’s this for awesome?

A real American hero, Retired Navy Cmdr. John Wells, who is also executive director of the Military Veterans Advocacy based in Louisiana, was chosen by the New Orleans Saints to receive its Peoples Health Champion Award for highlighting the “health and well-being of our military, veterans and their families.” It’s an honor to be recognized for the good work one is doing in their community to make a difference in the lives of their neighbors, but it matters “who” is bestowing the honor.

Which is exactly what Commander Wells told the Saints when he refused to accept their award.

“Although I am touched and honored to be selected for such an award, the ongoing controversy with NFL players’ disrespect for the national flag forces me to decline to participate in the presentation,” he said. “I am unable, in good conscience, to enter an NFL stadium while this discourtesy prevails. Since this award is tainted with the dishonorable actions of the NFL and its players, I cannot accept it.”

What a spectacular response.

Over the last two years many of the New Orleans Saints players have been involved in protests against the National Anthem, the police, the President, and anyone else they deem worthy of their spite.

Now, the entire league is suffering under collapsing TV ratings as they play inside of mostly empty stadiums and they are beginning to realize that they could be hurting their own bottom line. So they find a worthwhile veteran and attempt to use him as a prop in their public relations battle to improve their image.

What did the Saints do when he refused? Did they display any class or understanding?

NOPE.

In fact, the Saints disrespectful response to Commander Wells proves that the entire event was simply a PR “stunt” attempting to win back a few of their lost fans.

Here’s what some classless twit in the Saints front office responded with:

“We will not allow Mr. Wells’ decision and subsequent media appearances to distract our players and organization from continuing to honor and support our military and veterans,” the Saints said in a statement. “We, as an organization, have decided to move on from this sad and divisive discourse and focus our attention on supporting our military and veterans.”

How ironic and infuriating is that?

The Saints blaming Wells for “sad and divisive discourse”? The Saints chose to protest during our national anthem, but Wells is the one being divisive? Wells focuses his life’s work on advocating for veterans in Louisiana, but the Saints are pretending that they’re the ones who truly support our military and our veterans?

It’s unconscionable and I hope the Saints continue to lose profits and games as this season drags on.
