We’re tracking the conservative culture clash with woke Hollywood hypocrites to keep you up to date on who’s winning and who we hate.
Here’s what happened today:
After the National Football League announced on Thursday that teams experiencing coronavirus outbreaks amongst unvaccinated players would be forced to forfeit their game, professional football’s highest-paid receiver is questioning his future as a player.
“Never thought I would say this, But being put in a position to hurt my team because I don’t want to partake in the vaccine is making me question my future in the NFL,” said Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins in a since deleted tweet.
Hopkins isn’t the only one, Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey weighed in on the subject.
“Some of y’all clearly didn’t get what I’m saying here lol.. the NFL is pressuring/ ‘influencing’ guys to get the vaccine,” Ramsey tweeted. “They are saying if there is an outbreak, the team will be penalized heavily. My point is no teammate of mine will feel that pressure from me because whether you are vaccinated or not, there is still a chance of getting covid. I thought my point was simple but I guess not lol. ”
“Just because my teammate(s) personally decide not to get the vaccine, I won’t think they are a bad teammate,” he said in a follow-up.
Under Los Angeles County Democrat District Attorney George Gascón’s laissez faire approach to prosecuting misdemeanors, and a California Law that reduced stealing less than $950 from a felony to a misdemeanor, shoplifters are brazenly stealing goods without fear of consequences.
Two Los Angeles men were caught on camera walking out of a TJ Maxx with armfuls of clothing and no fear of being arrested.
“They didn’t even run out, they walked out. And so, that’s sending a message that we, the criminals, are winning,” said Los Angeles Police Department Sgt. Jerretta Sandoz. “If they’re caught, they’re probably given the equivalent of a traffic ticket. So it’s not taken seriously.”
Watch then casually stroll out of the store here.
A Happy Birthday
Country music icon Dolly Parton decided to recreate her 1978 Playboy cover shoot for her husband Carl Dean’s birthday.
“Today is July 20. It’s my husband Carl’s birthday and you’re probably wondering why I’m dressed like this,” she said as she modeled a Playboy bunny outfit.
“Remember some time back I said I was going to pose for Playboy magazine when I was 75? Well, I’m 75 and they don’t have a magazine anymore but my husband always loved the original cover of Playboy, so I was trying to think of something to do to make him happy,” she continued.
“He still thinks I’m a hot chick after 57 years — and I’m not going to try to talk him out of that.”

Country singer Luke Combs paid for the funerals of three men who died in a trailer parked outside of a music festival he headlined in Michigan last weekend.
The men were found dead on Saturday from apparent carbon monoxide poisoning by a portable generator that was placed too close to the trailer.
“It’s just a freak accident,” said one of the victim’s father. “For all those decisions to line up to get to this tragedy it just boggles your mind – of the thousands of generators and campers, they were the ones that it hit.”
“All of us in the Faster Horses Festival Family are deeply saddened by the tragic losses this weekend as confirmed by the Lenawee County Sheriff’s Department,” the Faster Horses Festival said in a statement. “Our hearts are broken for the family, friends and loved ones.”
Former “To Catch a Predator” host Chris Hansen said the bench warrant issued for him stemming from a Michigan criminal case was a “misunderstanding.”
After failing to provide footage from a police sting of a former corrections officer trying to have sex with a minor, Hansen made national news when he didn’t appear at the hearing and was served. Hansen said the issue is “much ado about nothing.”
“This wasn’t one of those First Amendment battles where we’re trying to sandbag the defense counsel for a bad guy who got caught trying to rape a child,” he commented. “This was us exposing a bad guy trying to rape a child and getting caught up in a legal misunderstanding – a civil, not criminal legal misunderstanding.”
He insisted the problem was that the court subpoena was served to his West Bloomfield, MI home and taped on the door, despite his residence of record being in New York. The Michigan court ultimately rescinded the warrant.
Former heavyweight boxing champion George Foreman isn’t impressed with woke protesting against the nation.
“It’s all fashionable to be anti-American. It’s fashionable,” he commented. “And people have asked me, ‘What are you talking about? Can’t you see what was done then and what was done now? Can’t you see?’ And I tell them swiftly, ‘you can’t talk me out of my love.'”
He says falling in love with the country is like falling for a spouse. “Once you fall in love — just like falling in love with your wife — no one can say anything about her. The next night she’s [still] my wife, and I’m gonna stay,” he continued. That’s why you make that thing ‘until death do we part.’ And that’s why nothing has ever shook my faith and love in the country. And when you love a country, nothing can bother you.”
It’s all or nothing for Foreman: “If you are halfway in love, you’re gonna have a lot of trouble.”
Former NWA rapper Dr. Dre was ordered to pay his estranged wife of 24 years, Nicole Young, $293,306 in spousal support every month until she remarries or enters into a domestic partnership.
The Beats by Dre owner was also ordered to continue paying the expenses on their homes in Malibu and Pacific Palisades, but did not have to pay out the $2 million a month Young had petitioned the court for. His current net worth is in the ballpark of $800 million.
