NFL decision to permit
kneeling protest by players
enrages Donald Trump

Original Article

Posted By: kreeger, 6/7/2020 9:59:29 AM

The US National Football League is embroiled in a standoff with President Donald Trump after it said players would be allowed to “take the knee” during the American national anthem in protest against racism. After the NFL announced its U-turn, Trump tweeted late on Friday night: “We should be standing up straight and tall, ideally with a salute, or a hand on heart. There are other things you can protest, but not our Great American Flag – NO KNEELING!”


On the bright side I will have more free time on Sundays this coming Fall.

Which means that Romney and the Bushes are just fine with the kneeling. Orange man hates it, must be good.

This is the NFL's way of enforcing social distancing in its stadiums -- permanently -- by alienating what's left of its already severely diminished fan base.

Where is the ghost of Pete Rozelle when you need him? Sports use to be fun to watch. High paid people to play the game we all loved at a high level of competition. All gone now. No reason to watch it anymore.

The left has ripped to shreds every institution that used to bind us together - family, schools, churches, the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, community organizations. We can no longer trust the media or government agencies to tell us the truth. They have attacked the police, border patrol, the military. They have ripped the flag and toppled statues and rewritten history to cast shame on our national heroes. And now, the last institution where people still find community - sports. We are watching the deliberate dismantling of every tradition, every institution in America. We living through the death throes of western civilization. In some ways I agree with those who say, good riddance to the NFL, but I also know that is the goal of the leftists - to destroy everything.

No Kneeling will turn into No Watching. NFL has added another game to its regular season as well as 2 more playoff teams in order to pay for salaries that are approaching $1 Million per player per game. Diluting a product while increasing its price never increases sales. What’s weird is that TV cameras will gleefully show these anti white protest by rich NFL players but will go to enormous lengths not to show cheerleaders. Racists yes, sexist no. Except for the must be attractive Airhead on the sidelines who adds to the endless babble of the jerk and jock in the booth.

It looks like the NFL will be canceling their season. Not many people looking forward to all the arrows instructing them where to go, masks to wear, then forced to watch the player's political demonstrations, and restroom perfunctories in the end zone. Not a lot of people like to witness the abhorrent and the ugly.

No one is forced to buy tickets or watch on TV. The market will speak, the NFL either prosper or lose in the bargain. That's how it works. Yes, it's outrageous. The league has a labor problem - which in the real world would force them to "hire" more Asian and Hispanic players, not to mention females, to overcome the lack of diversity of a league far-overstocked with black talent. So, do what you think right. The "woke" NFL is.

I tire easily that it is always someone else's fault for poverty. Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, George Bush, Mitt Romney, Oprah Winfrey, and other elitists think it is America's fault. Yet, these people own property and assets beyond one's imagination but it is still always someone else's fault. How about they give up some of these properties and assets and share with the poor? How about Hollywood give up some of their properties and assets and share with the poor? A lot of these people are corrupt (Mr. Ukraine Joe Biden) but, hey, we are being shown that they all stick together. Even Mitt Romney and George Bush. How about AOC? What a hypocrite - just as corrupt as Joe Biden. She can take her mantra of "defund the police" and stick it where the sun doesn't shine. I think I would like to start a "defund Congress" movement. One more comment - the way George Bush has presented himself I would probably cry if I lost a son or daughter in any of those wars. What a back-stabbing individual. . .

I had softened my stance last year because it seemed like the NFL was not allowing players to rub our faces with their disrespect of the flag. No more NFL football for me. I can watch any classic game I want to for free, and they were played before the current entitled, childish behavior of the players.

I don't even know who the Super Bowl champions have been in the last four years nor do I care.

Why can't they take a knee before the second half kickoff as a symbolic gesture against racism rather than associating it with the National Anthem and flag? This would still make a statement without disrespecting the people who actually understand how much progress America has made to provide equal opportunity for all, including the integration of sports at every level.

The NFL could say it is permitting players to kneel during the anthem; what their statement means to me is that they are permitting fans to run errands and do chores during the games. I stopped watching when CK7's pulled his piggy-police socks stunt and the Rams did their stupid "hands up don't shoot" game-entrance protest. Won't even waste my time following the season any more now.

For the umpteenth time, stay home for two weeks. Sure, buy your take out. Mask and glove up to get your groceries. Take a walk in the fresh air and avoid people. Just stay home otherwise. Otherwise, plan for this.   Why? At a simple level, this reduces the variables. The fewer people that one contacts, the fewer possible vectors of infection, the easier it is to trace contacts, the easier it is to halt the spread of infection.   Here is a good explainer about how “flattening the curve” looks. As time is passing, and because of isolation, the numbers are looking better than the ones the doctor in this video are using.

What accounts for the frenzied shift to hysterical language among leftists when attempting to demean the president every time they open their mouths? That is an easy question; they know that Biden is a pathetic loser and that Trump is going to defeat him handily in November. Sure, the constant din of their hateful slings and arrows may have done some damage, but not nearly enough for him to lose the election, and the Democrats know it. Thus, we hear terms like "storm troopers," "militia," "private troops," and other nonsensical language to describe Trump's light-touch attempts at rescuing those Democrat-run cities

Leftists in Portland are routinely committing violence in the downtown area. This week, the rioters have set their sights on the Hatfield Federal Courthouse, which is a mistake since vandalizing federal property isn't handled by the pusillanimous officials of Portland but by folks at the U.S. Department of Justice. U.S. Attorney Billy Williams announced on Friday that 18 individuals arrested during attacks on the Hatfield Federal Courthouse this past week are now facing federal charges. Court documents say protests in downtown Portland have been followed by criminal activity that includes assaults on law enforcement officers, arson, looting, destruction of property, and vandalism.
