How does BlazeTV host Steve Deace of "The Steve Deace Show" compare Smith’s actions favorably against the loss of masculinity exhibited in the age of COVID? Why does Whitlock think Jemele Hill’s defense of Smith is really a play to prop up the black matriarchy? Former Mizzou football star T.J. Moe helps Jason break down the NFL’s changes to the “Rooney Rule.” Why are quotas for minority and female coaches so damaging to both the league and to America? Plus, Uncle Jimmy relates a tragic story from his past to the Chris Rock - Will Smith fiasco.​​Today's Sponsor:Don't buy imported meat.
