Grant Napear’s life matters, by Michelle Malkin

Should a tranquil, obedient guy of faith be penalized in all time for openly declaring his wholehearted belief that “ALL LIVES MATTER…EVERY SINGLE ONE”?

The concern is not simply rhetorical. It is now a legal matter for a California court and jury to choose. Grant Napear, radio talk program host and previous commentator for the Sacramento Kings basketball group, submitted a claim recently versus his previous company, Bonneville International Corporation, after the Utah-based media corporation tossed him under the bus last spring to mollify the un-mollify-able Black Lives Matter mob.

In case you had actually forgotten, crowds of lunatics throughout America lost their minds over the Minneapolis police-involved death of profession criminal and drug user George Floyd. Coast-to-coast riots triggered almost $2 billion in damages and expense ratings of lives—all under the guise of “social justice” and “peaceful protest,” obviously. Those who attempted roaming from BLM orthodoxy – no joking permitted, no defense of police permitted, absolutely nothing less than complete and instant genuflection to the cruel gods of “diversity” permitted – dealt with ethical condemnation, social networks persecution, and even work termination.

Napear suffered all 3 penalties. His criminal offense? In action to NBA gamer Demarcus Cousin’s tweet to him asking “what’s your take on BLM?”, the experienced sports reporter addressed with those eventful 6 words: “ALL LIVES MATTER…EVERY SINGLE ONE.”

A tsunami of hate and smears taken place on social networks. Another NBA gamer, Matt Barnes, happily tarred Napear as a “closet racist” and stired a reaction. Barnes had pre-existing animosities versus Napear, who had actually called him out over a club brawl that resulted in criminal charges versus Barnes for attacking a lady in 2016, to name a few rowdy occurrences.

“Plain and simple,” Napear informed me in an interview on Monday, “Matt called me a closet racist on Twitter to get back at me. The sad thing is his tweet was taken as judge and jury. If I’m a closet racist, why did you come on my show every week and ask to play in my golf tournament? This is just part of the sad cancel culture that exists in our country now.”

Within 2 days, business cowards at Napear’s Sacramento radio station, KHTK, fired the 62-year-old veteran sports reporter in spite of more than 20 years of superlative work on the airwaves. Moms and dad business Bonneville condemned Napear’s innocent message as “particularly insensitive,” kowtowing to BLM by revealing its “respect” for “the black community” and “marginalized” individuals. (Never ever mind all the black small company owners and law enforcement officers targeted by Floyd-worshiping looters and shooters, or the white people marginalized for requiring order.)


In his claim submitted recently with the Eastern District of California court, Napear mentioned his religions in “[t]he inherent worth and dignity of every person” and “the right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large.” Off with his head! Napear stated how KHTK disallowed him “from the Company premises as if I were a criminal” in spite of a pristine and excellent work record. His problem set out how Bonneville fired him “for cause” with no reason or description of how his tweet in defense of the sanctity of all life made up “misconduct.”

Napear unflinchingly called out the business media giant for unlawfully victimizing him “because he is a Caucasian male who published a phrase on social media” that broke Bonneville’s unstated policy supporting BLM.

Requested for any action to the match, a Bonneville spokesperson notified me today: “We have no comment.”

When It Comes To Napear, he informed me Monday: “My message is simple. What happened to me was a travesty. I’m trying to right a wrong. My hope is a victory will send a message to those who think canceling people for their beliefs won’t be tolerated.” He is standing in the breach since “too many people are scared to speak up for what they believe in and what is right. I’ve had numerous private conversations with some of the biggest names in our industry. They’ve told me they are nervous about saying something on the air that will be misconstrued, or misinterpreted.” Napear has actually likewise talked with sports group owners who think “[i]t is easier to go woke then deal with criticism.”

However rather of going carefully into the great night over “six truthful words” that “ended my career,” Napear is holding the feckless smear merchants responsible. “I want to be vindicated. I want Bonneville International to apologize to me. I want them to admit they panicked and made a mistake,” he informed me. “I am energized and ready to fight this battle not just for me, but for all of those who have been victims of this sick cancel culture.”

In what stays of the land of the complimentary and the house of the brave, Grant Napear’s life and income matter. All the witch-hunters who attempted to ruin him should be held to account. Every one.
