As many of you have stated, I too am appalled by the NFL players who have taken their protest too far by disrespecting the national anthem and the flag. It is utterly despicable and I AM VERY OFFENDED.
It’s one thing to protest something that you believe is wrong but YOU DO NOT DISRESPECT THE FLAG OR THE ANTHEM; WHICH REPRESENT OUR COUNTRY, THE LIVES AND LIMBS THAT WERE LOST IN BATTLES FOUGHT TO PROTECT OUR NATION’S FREEDOM, A N D T O P R O T E C T Y O U R R I G H T T O P R O T E S T!
President Trump’s criticism of NFL protests over the weekend, which is still causing major controversy, was right on, and it was the correct thing to do. I’m sorry, but I DO NOT BELIEVE this Protest is about mistreatment of people with color. I think it is about much more than protesting supposed mistreatment and here’s why.
What about targeting cops just because they are cops? Is that NOT abuse in many forms?
What about mistreatment, brutality, murder, and property stolen from religious people who were hated and chased out of their homes (as were Mormons). Mormons were forced to cross snowy and mountainous roads in poor conditions, without enough food and supplies, with clothing and shoes that were worn down and torn, and often ate soup made out of grass and tree bark.
What about Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese, Puerto Ricans, Jews, Muslims, Catholics, and so on and so on? Many were forced to live in substandard conditions or were mistreated purely for their speech, color, nationality, handicap, or because they are just plain different.
Never have these groups of people used their abuse and mistreatment to condone violence, vandalism, theft, disobedience, and disrespect of flag and country! I believe the ones who are disruptive, disobedient, defiant, and destructive use anything they can manipulate into a cause to act this way.
Therefore, I say GOOD for you First Lady Melania Trump who stood for disabled veterans participating in the Invictus Games.
Also, I say GOOD for you President Trump who criticized NFL players for refusing to participate in the national anthem. He said: “We’re proud of our country. We respect our flag. Wouldn’t you love to see one of our NFL owners when someone disrespects our flag to say, ‘Get that son of a b**** off the field right now… he’s fired!’ When you see it [protests], leave the stadium. I guarantee you it will end.”
We the People Will NOT support millionaire hypocrites who hate America and disrespect our [Police] Armed Forces and Veterans.
A football game is just that – a game.
We stand with the real Heroes – the men and women who risk their lives every single day so that we may enjoy peace here in America.
We DO NOT stand with a bunch of rich, entitled, arrogant, ungrateful, anti-American degenerates.
If the blatant disrespect by the NFL is not put to an end soon, We the People CAN and WILL boycott the entire league.
Consider yourself officially warned.
