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.

FTA: ´´Goodell issued a statement that said, “Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL.´´

Let me fix that statement:
Goodell issued a statement that said, “Divisive actions, like these by players, demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for America.

I am the CUSTOMER.

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.

In short, they´re not on our team. WE are their enemy.

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!

FTA: ´The league also faces problems with the high levels of brain injury players face´ How can we tell?

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)

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.

Here is the deal. It is disrespectful to the fall and country to not stand during the National Anthem. Period.

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.

Private investigators believe a prominent billionaire couple found dead in their Toronto mansion last month were murdered by multiple people two days before their bodies were discovered, Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported Saturday, citing a source “with direct knowledge of the parallel probe” into the deaths of Honey and Barry Sherman. The private investigation — which contained graphic details of the alleged ways the Shermans had been killed — at times contradicted early reports about an ongoing investigation by Toronto police, who have remained tight-lipped about the case over the past month.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer gave a tepid, droning, and utterly unconvincing performance on the Senate floor this morning where he repeatedly inserted the phrase, “the Trump shutdown.” The problem for Mr. Schumer is two-fold: First, very few watched his speech. Yes, CNN, MSNBC, etc., will replay it a few times, but none of those replays will generate as much interest as a single Trump tweet. Second, and this is even more critical, the phrase “Schumer Shutdown” is trending throughout Social Media circles – a development which has Mr. Schumer’s staff increasingly troubled. He doesn’t want to be the one

Despite previous reports that a Canadian billionaire and his wife died in a murder-suicide, a private investigation has reached another conclusion: that Barry and Honey Sherman were allegedly killed in a double-homicide. Barry Sherman, 75 and the CEO of a generic drug company called Apotex, and his philanthropic wife, Honey Sherman, 70, were found dead in their home north of Toronto in December. The CEO was allegedly worth nearly $5 billion at the time of his death, according to the Toronto Star. Shortly after, Toronto police began investigating their deaths as a possible murder-suicide. Now, the Toronto Star is reporting the Shermans may

Here is a MAGA riddle: What is even worse than Fake News? That’s right. Flake News. That’s because Flake News is not just Fake News. It is Stupid Fake News that actually makes you dumber for hearing it. The GOP’s flakiest flake in the whole flakey Senate failed Arizona Sen. Jeff “Flakey” Flake took to the Senate floor Wednesday to denounce President Trump because — like the vast majority of intelligent Americans — Mr. Trump does not have much faith in, or respect for, today’s lunatic leftwing media. In Mr. Flake’s speech, Mr. Trump’s harangues against the press earned the

TEL AVIV — Glenn R. Simpson, the co-founder of the controversial opposition research firm Fusion GPS, stated in testimony it “makes sense” to him that the FBI paid for a trip to Rome by the former British spy who was contracted by Simpson’s company to produce the largely discredited 35-page anti-Trump dossier. Fusion GPS hired Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence agent, to do the work cited in the anti-Trump dossier. Last July, Steele reportedly traveled to Rome, where he met with an FBI contact to supply the agency with the anti-Trump dossier and other information he found during the course

Now that Donald Trump’s physician has declared the president to be in “excellent” health and mentally fit for office, let’s lay to rest yet another dead #Resistance narrative. “Dangerousness can be assessed without using formal diagnostic categories,” wrote Ilene A. Serling for Psychology Today in an article titled “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump.” Dr. Serling argued that President Trump’s “attraction to brutal tyrants and also the prospect of nuclear war,” along with his “pit of fragile self-esteem” is indicative of “a crucial impairment of sanity.” Dr. Serling zigzagged between pathologizing the president and candidly associating his administration, and constituents, with “swastikas,

Our most effective U.S. presidents—and keep in mind, I’m saying “most effective,” not “best”—possessed, to one degree or another, a certain measure of indifference to human life. Whether you’re preserving the Union, inciting a World War, incinerating a couple hundred thousand J*ps, or getting up to some mischief in a Tonkin Gulf, indifference to human life is kind of a must. Reckless indifference is helpful, but depraved indifference? Now, that’s the stuff of presidential legend. (Snip)Oprah is practically defined by her depraved indifference to human life. During the course of her storied career, Oprah has repeatedly demonstrated a willingness to

1988 Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis ripped President Trump´s new tax law and offered optimism for Democrats ahead of the midterm elections. Dukakis, a former governor of the Bay State during the so-called economic "Massachusetts Miracle," said Republicans have lost their way when it comes to supporting fiscal responsibility. He questioned why they would champion a tax plan that may have costly ramifications for the national deficit. (Snip) "We just passed a tax bill, which I think is a piece of garbage," Dukakis, who lost his presidential bid to then-Vice President George Bush, said. "Look at these companies, though, that are

It´s no secret that Mitt Romney is, in all likelihood, going to run for a Senate seat in Utah. What´s less clear, however, is why the man who was the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and is now retired and occupying an elder-statesman role in a party torn into warring factions would want to serve as a junior senator. Once elected, Romney would find himself embroiled in day-to-day congressional fights and less free to voice his criticisms of the White House, while losing some of the deference he´s been shown by members of his own party. But listen to any number of Republicans and

The Daily Caller journalist Chuck Ross has some extremely interesting information released today surrounding former top FBI Counterintelligence Agent Peter Strzok and DOJ/FBI liaison attorney Lisa Page which includes a disclosure by top FBI officials that text messages between Strzok and Page have gone missing. (Snip) According to information relayed to Senator Ron Johnson, the period of time the FBI has “lost” is from December 14th, 2016 to May 17th, 2017, the exact day that Special Counsel Robert Mueller was assigned to lead the Russia collusion probe.

Question: Do you think Donald Trump spends more time thinking about Hillary Clinton than Hillary Clinton spends thinking about Donald Trump? Sure does seem like it. The other day, President Trump was discussing Russia at a press conference with the prime minister of Norway, when he suddenly announced that Clinton “was not for a strong military and Hillary, my opponent, was for windmills, and she was for other types of energy that don’t have the same capacities at this moment certainly.” Yeah, it didn’t make any sense. But he really can’t seem to get past her. Recently while promoting tax

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) questioned President Donald Trump’s new campaign ad saying Democrats “will be complicit in every murder committed by illegal immigrants” if they continued the shutdown. Ryan said, “They are certainly not helping us keep the government open. They are certainly not helping us get to a solution on immigration. When you shut down the government you stop negotiating on immigration reform. They’re complicity with not getting things done.” He added, “I’m not going to comment. I just saw that. I don’t know if that’s necessarily productive. It’s no

Immigrants entering the United States illegally through the southern border are quietly being relocated to different parts of the country on commercial flights, high-ranking Homeland Security officials told Judicial Watch this week. In the last few days alone, groups of illegal aliens boarded planes at airports in Texas and Arizona accompanied by a taxpayer-funded government escort in civilian clothes to avoid drawing attention. The first flight originated at Valley International Airport in Harlingen, Texas and was bound for Minneapolis. (Snip) The illegal aliens wear red HHS wrist bands and receive “the gold glove treatment,” according to a veteran federal official,

According to Representative Dave Joyce (R-OH14) the House Intelligence Committee will hold a vote on the release of the four-page Nunes memo that reveals systemic corruption within the DOJ and FBI; including the unlawful use of FISA-702(16)(17) data searches which were part of an elaborate DOJ-FBI surveillance program on the political campaign of Donald Trump. (Tweet) Additionally, Chad Pergram reported that Chairman Devin Nunes met with Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte to discuss the best process to release the memo.

The burn continues. What follows are 138 years of scientific records tracing the human transformation of Earth’s climate. The bold pink line up top represents 2017, the third-hottest on record. The only years to exceed it—2015 and 2016—occurred amid a powerful El Nino weather pattern that ripped heat from the Pacific Ocean into the atmosphere. In the absence of El Nino, the swelter of 2017 was unprecedented.

There’s a ghost haunting Elizabeth Warren as she ramps up for a possible 2020 presidential bid and a reelection campaign in Massachusetts this year: her enduring and undocumented claims of Native American ancestry. Warren says now, as she has from the first days of her public life, that she based her assertions on family lore, on her reasonable trust in what she was told about her ancestry as a child. “I know who I am,” she said in a recent interview with the Globe. But that self-awareness may not be enough, as her political ambitions blossom.

Comic book readers are apparently not fans of progressive politics—a fact no more evident in Marvel’s decision to cancel every single one of its comics that has been nominated by the LGBTQ advocacy group, GLAAD. In December, the publisher announced its decision to cancel many of its comics, citing poor sales. LGBTQ, feminist, and social justice-themed comics involving stories that revolved around Black Lives Matter, illegal immigration, and LGBTQ issues were among those to end up on the chopping block.

Adam Schiff, reputedly a champion leaker from the House Intelligence Committee when it came to Russiagate material, suddenly thinks Ignorance is Bliss when it comes to the FISA warrant used to spy on the Trump campaign. Appearing on CNN, he tried to justify keep the 4 page memo that reportedly exposes the individuals who acted as part of a cabal to undermine the Trump campaign with help from NSA spying, and then pushed the “Russia collusion” conspiracy theory as part of the “insurance policy.” Americans are too ignorant, you see. Do you think Democrats are starting to panic? (Video) Rush
