Woke Mobs Demand You Must Now
Explain Why You Stand For The Anthem

Original Article

Kneeling for the national anthem at sporting events used to be the occasional episode of player activism protesting the United States as an evil racist empire. Amid the new 21st century woke revolution however, kneeling has become a key signifier for players and teams to declare which side of the culture wars one sits on. It’s those who love America versus those who hate it, the latter of which despises the American flag and all that it represents as a relic of white supremacy that must be condemned.

Never explain yourself to a zealot. No matter what you say they have an argument that negates any argument you may have. Best to wish them a nice day and do what you were going to do.

Well, these nutty leftists want to not only nail the coffin shut on pro sports, they want to add a bead of carpenters gkue, just to make sure they can't rise from the dead.

Sure. Because I am an American. A citizen of the only country in the world, whose founding documents are designed to limit government to promote liberty and justice for all. After that, its up to the individual to live up to the Standards required. While many do not, that is to their discredit, not America's. You have the choice. I stand for that unique opportunity.

Just for arguments sake, Uhhhh - it's one of those FREEDOMS I still enjoy? And if you have to ask you're even more ignorant than even I could ever imagine. And that is significant. Oh and by the way, why do I have to justify any of my traditions to the likes of you anyway?

They are going to find out there are more of US than there are of Them! We don't have to march or go on TV Shows to explain why we Stand for the Pledge, we will explain by NOT attending their games or buying their sports gear, or even watching their games on TV. All of those things will explain to them who we are and what we believe in! That said, I would only say if you have Young people in your home who you love and have taught to love this country, don't send them to college! Have them learn a Trade or send them to classes so they can work in an Office, go to Nursing School or be a Fireman. If you send them to college, be prepared to lose them! No matter how confident you are they were "raised right", you might just find after four years of being indoctrinated by Left Leaning Professors and also by Peer Pressure to go with the crowd, they become someone you don't recognize! It's happening all over this country! We have a whole generation who now think it's okay to kneel! If I were raising my children now, they would go to a Charter School and after that I would not send them off to College!!

Professional sports is in the process of committing financial suicide and they don't get it. The NFL, NBA and MLB can just stuff it! I am done with them all. The owners can put a stop to this but, are cowards and will not. We can live without watching overpaid pampered cry babies make fools of themselves telling us how we should live our lives while they live in multi million dollar homes and do not even have a clue what a gallon of milk costs.

Why do the ramblings of these ingrates and low IQ children even make it to the news? I don't care if they kneel or not because I will never see it. As the wise Mike Damone of "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" said, "I don't care if she comes, stays, lays or prays." That is my opinion of the ghetto trash kneelers.

I'll tell them to stay kneeled for a long long time reminiscing about the men and women who fought for their freedom to act like the useful idiots they are. Afterwards, they can go back to their school principals to try to get their teaching jobs back. Fat chance. See how that works for these clowns.

I don't have to explain myself to a wimp who never wore a military uniform for the country that we love or why we do the things we do. The million dollar babies in sports are going to find that the movement doesn't/won't support them financially so when the funds dry up and stadiums remain empty the player brats might just be negotiating to play ball for 15K a year instead of millions. The half time Super Bowl show will feature Trixie the cocker spaniel dog doing tricks not rock super stars and rappers. Color me not caring because I don't watch them I'm not going to be 'woke' and support cop haters like BLM.

Daughter in the Bay Area, a Masters in Literature, totally liberal (zero political discussions between us). College nowadays is a useless scam. Parents; if you love your kids, send them to a tech school.

Never complain and never explain. As John Wayne (another now-hated & despised American) would say: "It's a sign of weakness". Why is anyone even remotely interested in what a bunch of unemployed slacker spoiled brats have to say about anything? I kneel only to God and His Son so "taking a knee" is an honor nothing else deserves. Period. I stand for the flag and its anthem to respect those who fell defending it. Now go have commerce with yourself! PS: To all those with grown kids who have betrayed them and their values I say: "It is not your fault". Your kids have their own lives to live now after they turn 18 and whether they have thrown it all away or they give you pride you can't control them either way. So ... when the time is right ... calmly explain to the rude ones that you would never, ever cause them shame and so you know that your dirty wealth (that you accumulated, of course, by exploiting people and being a racist) would embarrass them if it were to pollute their lives and soil their bank accounts. Therefore, you have decided to leave all your filthy lucre, money & assets to your church, the local animal shelter, the library, a cancer hospital, whatever. They will change their tune quick enough when they realize they can and will be cut off. At last the smart ones will stop arguing and show some respect to their elders.

I would just tell them that it would be a more interesting conversation to hear an explanation of why they won't. Plus, it is none of their business. As to explanations, any liberal explanation does not negate any argument I have. Because liberals do not operate on facts, they operate on their feelz. THAT right there makes anything THEY say irrelevant to any thinking adult. When the revenue runs dry, and their contracts do not get extended or raised, wonder what their next arguments on being oppressed are gonna consist of. I do agree that the owners of these sports teams could put a stop to all of this tomorrow, but they refuse to do so. So I will not have pity on them when their investment tanks big time.

Here's my story on my educated children. My daughter currently lives in DC, attended UNC and GWU. She's liberal, makes a boatload of money as a designer, but she hates taxation as much as I do. Her leftist indoctrination started at and was mostly formed at UNC where she studied Sports Medicine. She worked too hard at GWU to be impacted there. She hates Trump with a disturbing passion. My son lives in NC, attended NCSU. Votes Republican, or not. Doesn't care about political stuff, but when he comments, he makes so much sense. I wish he'd be more vocal and active, but he just cares about work and enjoying life. He is a film producer, scriptwriter, photographer, and editor. You think he'd be the liberal one.

Unfortunately, this is doomed to get worse. Irrational people with irrational demands will grow increasingly more desperate to have their way, and the more resistance they get, the more extreme will become their methods and actions. We are now seeing this played out as the Antifa and BLM thugs/anarchists move their tantrums into the suburbs. Next will come firearms and outright weapon assaults on those who dare to resist. We are headed for bloodshed big time, as one cannot reason with these people. Unfortunately, law enforcement and many city/state governments will come down on the side of the thugs, and law abiding citizens who have finally had enough and act to resist the criminals will be arrested and punished. When that happens, the law-abiding American citizen will have to decide whether he wants to replace those in power or let them continue with their injustice against those who pay taxes and generally obey the laws. It is indeed a sad time in our country, and I f place the blame squarely at the feet of our hijacked education system and politicians who only care about their positions of power.

#7 is absolutely correct. Children may listen to their parents until the age of eighteen but once they break free and get out among their peers, their desire to please their friends will outweigh what they have learned at home. If you can steer them toward the military or one of the military academies, it is wise to do so. No chance of them becoming dimwits there. Once I was discharged from the Navy I had seen the world for what it really was and America beats any of the socialist paradises hands down. I would rather have a son or daughter killed while battling communism, socialism or the cult of mohammed than joining any of them.

It’s not enough that public school teachers and the college professors who train them are increasingly prone to teaching leftist absurdities like “2+2=5” or presenting the mendacious 1619 Project as legitimate American history. Teachers unions are now trying to blackmail the entire country into meeting a set of leftist political demands for reopening the schools this fall, using COVID-19 as their excuse. Of course, the pandemic certainly presents challenges for re-opening schools, but other sectors of society have managed to rise to the occasion over the past several months to keep the country running.
Who Killed George Floyd? 16 replies

In the death of George Floyd, the State of Minnesota has charged former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin with second-degree murder and former officers Thomas Lane, J. Alexander Kueng, and Tou Thao with aiding and abetting that murder. But, as will be shown in detail below, the physical, scientific, and electronically recorded evidence in the case overwhelmingly and conclusively proves that these defendants are not guilty of the charges and, in fact, played no material role in bringing about Floyd’s death. Instead, the evidence proves that, when he first encountered the police, George Floyd was well on his way to dying from a self-administered drug overdose.

Extending the popular Payroll Protection Program is one of the few areas of agreement between the White House and Democrats in the latest proposed coronavirus stimulus — a spending bill criticized by many in the Republican base as a wasteful bailout for cities and states. Administration and banking industry sources say Senate Republicans‘ proposal to extend the PPP, which is set to expire this week, for companies with fewer than 300 employees and a reduction of 50% or more in revenue is accepted in principle in the talks. But the provision, which also offers more generous terms for loan forgiveness,

When mobs are attacking statues of Ulysses S. Grant, it is difficult to have an intelligent discussion about why some Confederate generals and officials deserve respect. No one today defends the role of slavery. However, if belief in racial equality is the sole measure of the worth of Americans at the time, few people, including in the North, would pass muster. Racism was rampant, and many northerners objected to slavery not on grounds of humanity and liberty, but because it created sectional division and, in their view, harmed white laborers. Most northern states denied free blacks the right to vote and serve on juries, and imposed other disabilities,

Would Vice President Biden’s search for a running mate have been so fraught if he hadn’t announced his plan to exclude male candidates from consideration? The thought occurs to us in the wake of the Washington Post’s story about Mr. Biden’s decision to delay by as much as two weeks the announcement of his choice and the ill-feeling among Democrats as jockeying for the position has intensified among the potential picks. “Even some longtime Biden allies worry that the process has become ‘messier than it should be,’ pitting women, especially Black women, against one another,” reports the Post’s Annie Linsky.
Why Voting By Mail Imperils
Biden More Than Trump

Posted by MissMolly 8/4/2020 4:25:03 AM Post Reply
The Democrats are obviously committed to using the COVID-19 pandemic as the latest pretext for achieving their longtime goal of widespread voting by mail. They may, however, end up outsmarting themselves. The Democrats are so invested in their revisionist history concerning Bush v. Gore that they have forgotten why SCOTUS actually stopped the Florida recounts on December 12, 2000. That was the “safe harbor” date after which the state’s electors may not have been counted. Federal law requires that states must resolve post-election disputes (e.g. recounts) within thirty-five days after Election Day or risk disfranchising their voters. In 2000, that would have changed the outcome of the presidential election.

Dem strategist Zac Petkanas argues: “This is not a normal presidential election, and Trump is not a legitimate candidate” and so doesn’t deserve a debate.

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has a "bizarre" habit of bragging about arrests that never happened, Fox News contributor Mollie Hemingway told "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Monday. "He’s dreamed of it and thought of it a great deal," Hemingway, senior editor of The Federalist, told host Tucker Carlson. "And he's had a lifetime of storytelling. I mean, I don't think he's the only politician out there to exaggerate or tell stories but he really is notable for this, and it was something that caused problems for him the first time he ran for president [in 1988] when that candidacy was derailed by his lies, his plagiarism."

Former First Lady Michelle Obama whined about being holed up in her mansion during Covid quarantine during Wednesday’s episode of “The Michelle Obama Podcast.” Obama said she is suffering “low-grade depression” because of quarantine, ‘racial strife’ and of course the “hypocrisy” of the Trump Admin.“I’m waking up in the middle of the night because I’m worrying about something or there’s a heaviness,” she said.“I try to make sure I get a workout in, although there have been periods throughout this quarantine,

Gov. Andrew Cuomo is begging wealthy New Yorkers to return to the city to save it from economic ruin while fighting off calls from other lawmakers to raise their taxes, a move he fears could permanently drive the top 1 percent out of the city. Thousands of New York City residents fled Manhattan and Brooklyn earlier this year when the city was the COVID-19 epicenter of the world. Many flocked to their second homes in the Hamptons or upstate, while others rented or bought new properties, abandoning their expensive city apartments.Now, six months on with no end to the national nightmare in sight, many are laying down permanent roots.

Kneeling for the national anthem at sporting events used to be the occasional episode of player activism protesting the United States as an evil racist empire. Amid the new 21st century woke revolution however, kneeling has become a key signifier for players and teams to declare which side of the culture wars one sits on. It’s those who love America versus those who hate it, the latter of which despises the American flag and all that it represents as a relic of white supremacy that must be condemned.

Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer, a Democrat, signed an executive directive on Wednesday ordering state employees to undergo “implicit bias training.” Executive directives allow the Michigan governor to establish procedures or basic policy for employees of the state’s executive branch. According to the directive, current state employees will be required to undergo “implicit bias training” by the end of this year, while new employees must complete the training as part of the hiring process. While various bias training initiatives have been implemented by government offices in recent months, some research shows that the impact of these initiatives is negligible. Whitmer’s directive

Late on Monday, The Daily Mail posted full body cam videos from two of the officers charged in connection with the death of George Floyd.

On August 1, the Washington Post published an op-ed by the now-retired Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman, of impeachment fame. The paper’s editors had to heavily revise the piece prior to publication. American Greatness has obtained the text of Vindman’s first draft. After 21 years of playing soldier, I am now a civilian. I decided to retire, as difficult as it was, because I am getting a cool $1 million for my upcoming memoir, and no longer need to pretend that I care. I was hoping for $2 million, but I suppose $1 million will have to do. Besides, I had every expectation of being promoted to a general, but
