5 Problems With The NFL’s
National Anthem Protest

The Federalist, by Mollie Hemingway

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 9/25/2017 3:55:54 PM

At a Friday rally in Alabama, President Donald Trump criticized football players who protest during the national anthem: Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a b-tch off the field right now. Out. He’s fired. He’s fired!’ (Snip)Here are five reasons the NFL anthem protests are not going as well as the media would like to think. 1. Vague And Unclear Protest Goals One of the keys to a good protest is to have a clear goal. If the discussions on Sunday were any indication, nobody is entirely clear

FTA about the guy who started it last year:

Even in Kaepernick’s lengthy press conference last year, it was a bit unclear what the goals of the protest action are, or what it would take to declare victory and cease protesting. At that press conference, Kaepernick unfortunately wore a T-shirt of photos commemorating Malcolm X meeting Fidel Castro. As the better half wrote last year:

The biggest problem here is that Kaepernick is seemingly unaware of Castro’s legacy. Aside from Castro dragooning and executing Christians and gays, Castro’s record on racial justice is decidedly not ‘woke’, as the Internet likes to say. While Cuba’s legacy of racism predates Castro, it’s safe to say overt racism against individuals of African ancestry there remains far more pronounced than it is in the United States. In fact, racism is kind of an unstated official policy.

It is NOT my job to defend my feelings or my actions. You cannot embarrass or shame me into remaining your customer.

It is the NFL´s job to keep me happy.

The left has made a lot of gains by yelling racism whenever anyone criticizes something that blacks are a part of. It started with Obama who declared everything racist in order to get his way. This is not about racism; it is about patriotism. If these athletes do not like our flag or America, they have enough money to move on to a Communist nation. Just stop the madness!

I wish that some protest supporting owner would put money up to buy the quarterbacking services of Colin K.
because I would like to see what the guy can do. My guess is that ithis would have the welcome effect of removing a talking point from ESPN and JayZ while proving an embarrassment to the team owner and head case Colin K. -- unless the opposing teams agreed to take a knee instead of sacking the heroic NFL protest leader.

I understand that the players who ´take a knee´ think this is a protest, but what are they protesting? What do they think ´taking a knee´ to disrespect the flag and national anthem will accomplish? They are just overgrown uneducated brats. Now that they have our attention, what are they going to do to solve this ´problem´ or whatever it is they want?

Majority of the NFL players can´t survive in the real world. They don´t have the right temperament, the proper work ethics, the respect for social orders, the logic of connecting the dots, the prudence of planning ahead, the conscience of right and wrong, and the character of civility. You can blame AMERICA for who and what they are. Even the domesticated wild animal will someday bite the hands that feeds them.

If I we´re the owners, I´d be reviewing the collective bargaining agreement and determine appropriate actions for those who kneeled. Includes you, Kapie.

In my company, there is zero-tolerance for politicizing and agitating on company time. For the 200+ players who knealed, suspension or termination is the appropriate outcome. I see that at least one head coach and staff (Tomlin and his staff) sided with the players. Appropriate discipline including termination.

Godell, you have some work to do, pal, and fast.

Kneeling is not a protest unless you want to call it a sissy protest.

All liberals know that a real protest consists of arming yourself with a baseball bat and bottles of urine (to throw at the police), and anything else that you cam use as a weapon. You have to be able to smash windows, trash cars, set fires and loot tennis shoe stores. Anything less than this is done by sissies !!! Do you get that football boys?

Origins of the protest: Obama to Holder to BLM to Kaepernick to NFL.

Speaking about Obama, where is he? Where is Holder? Where are our vaunted racial healers? Didn´t they want a conversation about race with the white cowards? Short answer, No. They are proponents of Alinsky. You use concocted racial tensions for personal gain.

Yes, the players have First Amendment rights.

Their problem is that the fans have much stronger First Amendment rights because their numbers are in the millions and they control the purse strings. Very stupid move on the NFL´s part. Goodell may have lots of money but the loss of face when the league fails and goes bankrupt will end his joyride and all those ignorant traitors who hate America can hate it just as well from the unemployment line.

Mr. Trump´s comments caused Goodell and the owners (even Jerry Jones last night) to think this is about the NFL, citing "disrespect" for their Grand Institution. This is missing the point by a mile. The players, owners, and teammates taking a knee are doing it in solidarity with their teammates, and have missed the larger issue.

The solution is staring us right in the face and is so obvious!

In our family we stand for the National Anthem whenever and where ever it is played this includes the games on the TV at home.

It is my understanding that in the NFL "rules" book it states that players are required to stand for the national anthem, remove their helmets and face the flag with hand over heart or at their sides or face a LARGE $$$ penalty.

Well....then those who refuse to stand and show respect for the flag and our national traditions are to be fined the maximum penalty each and every time they do it and all money collected will be donated to the Red Cross.

Trust me as their wallets thin they will cease to "protest". It´s kind of like paying for a permit to protest in a city or town. You have to get a permit for it. Well, this is the cost of the permit.

I understand and respect the 1st amendment and that said there is a time and a place for everything. Kneeling during the National Anthem is neither the time nor the place to "protest" anything. I an very curious to know how many of those kneeling are volunteering in their communities on their days off and exactly how much they are donating to charities and causes of their choices.

You get much more done standing than down on one knee. I believe it is all showboating.

AS a person of faith, I do understand what is going on here. I had a similar situation happen to me awhile back. I accepted a job as a Sunday School Director and found out within weeks that I was expected to cover up anything that said Jesus or God after classes ended. Why? Because a non-Christian preschool rented the space. I said no and I knew why I was saying no.

Do these NFL players and owners know what they are protesting because I don´t. Are they protesting America, President Trump, poverty, police, or what?

I will say this that it has shown me how deeply embedded football is on a Sunday when we could be taking in a beautiful church service (the real ones), spending time with our children and grandchildren, taking in the beauty of this wonderful country, or whatever. Contrast that with these ego-filled, outrageously paid players and owners telling us hard-working, tax-paying American citizens how we should be living. By the way, if these players and owners are so concerned about poverty and oppression, why don´t they share their wealth. These includes celebrities. How often do we hear about players and celebrities getting caught up in drugs and alcohol? What a waste of money. . .

good points by many here.. but I´d add another one. Quit showing any of them! Don´t give them a public platform, as with the riots/protestors. Turm off the cameras.

Most don´t want a solution or an "awareness" of a perceived problem. They want dissention, they want others to choose sides. Everything is political.

If Tebow cant take a knee without a fine, then explain this, Goddell.

Last year I boycotted one team at a time that had players taking a knee or sitting during the National Anthem. San Francisco and the Baltimore Ravens were first. This year the National Thugball League made it simple, all of them are boycotted by me now. You can insult me once but you can´t insult me twice.
I´m an American first and watching these heathens playing is supporting their actions so I bow out.
As for brain injuries that could only help the brain dead idiots because they show no thought process now so an injury is an enhancement.

These useful idiots have been tricked by the Left and the MSM into protesting the results of the election held on Nov 8, 2016. They don´t know it but everyone else does. Insulting the Old Glory and the Star Spangled Banner is a losing proposition even from those who have been genuinely oppressed. For these overpaid sc*****s, way beyond the pale!

Here is some history to think about.
This started the Sunday before the final cut last year.
KK had a good idea he would be cut. So he did the protest and let everyone know about it.
He felt that it would be impossible for the team to cut him because he was a black protesting injustice to blacks.

He was right. Instead of cutting a player who wasn´t able to make the team on merit they opened Pandora´s box.

Who is the "us" they´re flipping off? It´s those who love our anthem, our flag, our country, our military, our judeo-christian religion, our values and traditions, our constitution, etc., etc, They hate us. They really, really do.

Respecting the flag and anthem says you are one of "us". You have been integrated into our society.

Kneeling says the opposite.

The work of Baptist minister (remember?) Martin Luther King is being undone, because those whose status he fought to advance have abandoned the Christian principles (including "render unto Caesar") that were central to his non-violent approach.

Congratulations, kneelers: you are effectively re-segregating our society. You have exposed the disconnect between the racial makeup of the players, and the racial makeup of the fans.

If you are not one of us, then so be it.

On the Stewart Varney show this AM they were reading what it states in the players contract: stand at attention, hold helmet in left/right hand (I forgot which) when the national anthem is played and the flag raised......
So what´s the beef???
If a stewardess were to do what these people do she would be fired.
These guys are overpaid prima donnas who suddenly feel they should educate the viewing public what poor slobs they are! Perhaps the NFL should make it mandatory that they play not espouse political or other issues as their platform!

And no, they don´t have First Amendment rights when acting as representatives of their employers. The First only prevents the government from banning speech. I can conclude that the owners agree with what the players are doing to their franchise incomes.

Off the field and out of uniform they can do what they want (and suffer the consequences)

With brain injuries and parents not wanting their children to play, this behavior of the players and some owners might mean the end. I won´t be watching anymore, and I just started to watch it.

Are the protestors protesting racism and racial injustice, or are they protesting the national anthem and the United States? Since the protests are managed by a bunch of anti-American radical leftists, the answer is the latter. From that perspective, is it any surprise millions of people are telling them where to go? Do blacks and the NFL really hate America? If so, shame on them. If not, they need to wise up and realize they are being used.

There are many other ways for the NFL and its players to speak out against racism and racial injustice. Taking a knee during the national anthem is not one of them.

You want to protest unfair treatment t, social injustice, a hang nail..do it on your time. I have yet to see these pampered elitist football players out protesting the breakdown of the African American family. The amount of black on black murder in Chicago.. or how school choice would allow poor families the same opportunity to get their kids educated across town.. so, NFL, as in not for long, better come up with a real good reason to turn th TV on Sunday.

The biggest problem with the entire athlete protest movement is that it is based on either a misconception or an outright lie.

So, let’s just cut to the chase. African Americans make up only 12% of America’s population, yet are responsible for 52% of the homicides in America, and nearly all of those homicides are comprised of black men killing other black men. Using government statistics, a black man in America is 32 times more likely to be killed by another black man than by either a white man or a police officer.

Far and away the greatest threat to black men in America is other black men.

Colin Kaepernick’s collusion case against NFL owners will argue that his continued unemployment is at least partially the fault of President Donald Trump, CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora reports. Kaepernick intends to argue that Trump, on Twitter and in public speeches, influenced NFL owners against signing Kaepernick, according to the report. Trump has repeatedly attacked NFL players in recent weeks for protesting during the national anthem, even sending Vice President Mike Pence to Indianapolis for a premeditated performance where he walked out of the Colts-49ers game after San Francisco players knelt during the anthem. Trump has also mentioned Kaepernick specifically at least

Here are the highlights from Monday´s proceedings in the federal corruption trial of U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez. Menendez, a Democrat and New Jersey´s senior senator, is charged with doing official favors for his friend and co-defendant, Florida eye doctor Salomon Melgen, in exchange for expensive hotel stays, private jet flights and hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions. 4:00 PM NEWARK — Five days after unexpectedly dangling a legal out for U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez by questioning a theory that is key to the prosecution´s federal bribery case against the Democratic senator and his co-defendant, Judge William Walls withdrew it on Monday.

For over forty years the left has been successfully reshaping American culture. Social mores and government policies about sexuality, marriage, the sexes, race relations, morality, and ethics have changed radically. The collective wisdom of the human race that we call tradition has been marginalized or discarded completely. The role of religion in public life has been reduced to a private preference. And politics has been increasingly driven by the assumptions of progressivism: internationalism privileged over nationalism, centralization of power over its dispersal in federalism, elitist technocracy over democratic republicanism, “human sciences” over common sense, and dependent clients over autonomous citizens. But

A man suspected of arson was arrested at Maxwell Farms Regional Park in Sonoma on Sunday afternoon after he was seen leaving a creek bed where a fire was burning, authorities said. Three Sonoma County Probation officers patrolling the area because of ongoing fires in the region noticed Jesus Fabian Gonzalez, 29, walking out of the creek area and a plume of smoke behind him, Sheriff’s Sgt. Spencer Crum said. Sheriff’s Deputy John Grohl was called to the scene and extinguished the fire, which was then completely doused by Sonoma Valley Fire Protection District personnel. Gonzalez was wearing a trench coat and told

Washington (CNN)Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Sunday again refused to say whether he called President Donald Trump a "moron" following a meeting at the Pentagon this past summer. In an interview on CNN´s "State of the Union," Tillerson told anchor Jake Tapper that he maintains a close and candid relationship with Trump, despite reports indicating Tillerson´s frustrations with the commander in chief. "Jake, as I indicated earlier when I was asked about that, I´m not going to deal with that kind of petty stuff," Tillerson said. "I mean, this is a town that seems to relish in gossip, rumor

Continuing her British leg of the What Happened book tour, failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton reiterated her favoured tropes of anti-Brexitism, Russian hackers, and ‘fake news’ to the BBC’s Andrew Marr, and deflected questions about her friendship with alleged rapist Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, her husband’s own alleged sexual predations, and whether her status as part of an elite lead to her election loss, blaming instead a conspiracy of Russian hackers and ‘possibly’ the Trump campaign. Reading from her 512-page post mortem where she explains how she lost the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Marr quoted an excerpt where Clinton observed

Just because western media doesn’t understand how President Trump executes a geopolitical strategy based on economic leverage, that doesn’t mean adversaries are not fully aware of the effectiveness of the approach. The Trump Doctrine has two avenues toward dealing with national security adversaries. The first route is direct assignment of responsibility toward the enablers: see China for North Korea; The Gulf States for Qatar (Sunni extremism); Russia for Syrian terrorism (Assad); and Pakistan for Afghanistan (Taliban); as recent examples. However, when the geopolitical threat stems directly from the enabler, and not the enabled, the Trump Doctrine has a distinctly different and far

Hillary Clinton slammed what she called "endemic" sexism and misogyny in America during an interview with Fareed Zakaria, which aired Sunday. Clinton, who was interviewed by Zakaria on his show, "GPS," said sexism was so inherent that she purposely hadn´t highlighted her career history of fighting for women´s rights when she ran for president in 2016. However, she admitted that with the benefit of hindsight, she "could have tried harder" to do so. "I´m a middle-class girl from the middle of the country, and so I always struggled with like, OK, so what´s my story. And it suddenly dawned on me that

New York activist Tamika Mallory says she was booted from an American Airlines flight in Miami after a pilot inserted himself into a dispute over her seat assignment. Mallory, a co-chair of the Women’s March on Washington, was traveling home to New York when the pilot followed her to scold her over an argument she had with a gate agent. He then had her summoned from her seat and kicked off the flight, she told the Daily News. “It definitely was white male aggression. I was singled out, I was disrespected, and he was trying to intimidate me. I was

Hillary Clinton on Sunday defended NFL players who knelt during the national anthem, saying kneeling is a “reverent” position that is not against “our anthem or our flag.” The former Democratic presidential candidate, who was at the Southbank Centre´s London Literature Festival, urged Democrats to use the issue against President Trump. Clinton was embarking on a foreign trip to promote her book “What Happened.” She said people should resist “what are very clear dog-whistles” to the Trump base, pointing to the example of kneeling NFL players. “That´s what black athletes kneeling was all about,” she said in response to a question about ways to

If the NFL thought Americans would ease the backlash against the league — they were sadly mistaken. Photos of empty stadiums from around the league show how dire a situation kneelers have spurred. (Photo) Breitbart News reports: Note, that the Jets played New England on Sunday, meaning there should have been a big crowd for that game. The Texans, Atlanta, and Baltimore are also very relevant teams with relatively loyal fan bases. Yet, thousands upon thousands of fans no-showed or didn’t buy tickets for those games.

Colin Kaepernick has filed a grievance under the collective bargaining agreement for collusion against NFL team owners, reports Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report. Kaepernick has hired high-profile attorney Mark Geragos and is preparing to release a statement about his grievance soon, added Freeman. The free-agent quarterback has remained unemployed since his release by the San Francisco 49ers in March and has garnered little interest from teams around the league. This has caused some to suggest he´s being blackballed for his national anthem protests during the 2016 season. Kaepernick appeared in 12 games for 49ers in 2016, throwing for 2,241 yards with

The Clinton Foundation told DailyMail.com it will not return as much as $250,000 in donations from Harvey Weinstein, saying on Sunday the money had already been spent on the organization’s programs and used for charitable purposes. The foundation’s decision comes as politicians and philanthropic groups grapple with whether to return donations they have received from Weinstein, after numerous women stepped forward this month to accuse the movie mogul of sexual assault, harassment and rape. Over a dozen Democratic politicians have said they will give back or donate Weinstein’s campaign contributions to charity. The Clinton Foundation faced questions about Weinstein’s funding after Hillary Clinton

Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D., Ill.) said in a radio interview on Sunday that Democrats can lose to President Donald Trump in 2020 if they "overdo it" by becoming too liberal. Durbin was asked on a local Chicago radio program about comments from Rep. Cheri Bustos (D., Ill.), who warned fellow Democrats that Trump would be reelected if the party becomes too liberal. CNN reporter Andrew Kaczynski was first to report on Durbin´s comments. (Audio) "We need to be balanced," Durbin said on "Connected to Chicago" on WLS-AM. "She´s right about that.
