    National Review ^ | September 25, 2017 | Jim Geraghty
    ... Saturday, at a rally supporting Luther Strange in Alabama, President Trump decided to reignite the issue, and essentially argued that players who kneel for the national anthem should be fired: “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, get that son of a b—h off the field right now? He is fired!” Once again, we see most people’s perspective on whether one’s personal views should cost them their job depend almost entirely upon whether one agrees with their views. If you’re on the Left, you think that a baker ought...

    To tweak Timothy Leary’s famous “turn on, tune in, drop out” for these times, let me suggest that we “turn off, tune out, drop out.” Therefore, to the extent possible: "Turn off" any programming or any commercial activity that is a forum that enables the left to continue their relentless attack against our values, our country and yes, our choice for President. If one is interested in a particular sport, for example, get together with friends and play the game. "Tune out" all noise, sloganeering, voices and virtue signaling that come from the various groups that, again, routinely attack us,...

  • Those Who Benefit from Economic Injustice Shouldn't Complain

    A Janitor's View ^ | 09/25/17 | Reasonmclucus
    Those athletes who complain about the existence of injustice ignore the fact that they are part of the class whose members may benefit from whatever injustices are perceived to exist. What is considered an injustice varies from one person to another. The use of local taxes to subsidize sports facilities can be considered an injustice. Some of the athletes using the facilities pay more in income taxes than some of the local taxpayers make in a year. The money teams save by not having to pay to construct facilities is available for player salaries. If professional athletes are really concerned...
  • Kaepernickitis is Rooted in Lies

    Trevor Grant ^ | 9/25/2017 | Trevor Grant Thomas
    The athletes doth protest too ignorantly, methinks. Whether foolish NFL quarterbacks (and their like-minded playmates) or double-minded NBA athletes, the affluent agitators should direct their political and social ire elsewhere. Instead, they’ve joined their Hollywood cohorts as mouthpieces for the Democrat Party. Of course, it should come as little surprise that expensive American entertainers have made themselves tools of the perverse modern left. Take Colin Kaepernick (“PLEASE,” his agent cries!). His failed efforts at protesting during the National Anthem were predicated upon a lie. After his initial protest in the 2016 preseason, NFL Media reported, “I am not going to...

    Thank You for your service and your courage both on the battlefield and the playing field. Sometimes the things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most. That people are basically good; that honor, courage, and virtue mean everything; that power and money, money and power mean nothing; that good always triumphs over evil; and I want you to remember this, that love... true love never dies. You remember that, boy. You remember that. Doesn't matter if it's true or not. You see, a man should believe in those things,...
  • LGBT Activists and Allies Join in Opposing Trump's Denunciation of Athletes' Protests

    George Takei, Keith Boykin, Martina Navratilova, and the creators of Will & Grace are among them. Many LGBT people and allies are among those reacting angrily to Donald Trump’s dissing of NFL players who kneel during the national anthem to protest racism, and to his criticism of NBA stars as well. At a campaign rally for U.S. Sen. Luther Strange in Alabama Friday, Trump denounced football players who, following a practice started by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, fall to one knee during the anthem. He asked the crowd if they’d “love to see one of these NFL...

    The Washington Times ^ | November 16, 2016 | Jessica Chasmar
    Colin Kaepernick, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback who started a national conversation by kneeling during the national anthem to highlight racial injustices in America, was widely criticized after he revealed he didn’t vote on Election Day. But as it turns out the 29-year-old, credited by some as the face of the Black Lives Matter movement, has never been registered to vote in any election, according to a report by The Sacramento Bee. Mr. Kaepernick, who turned 18 in 2005, never registered to vote in his home state of California or Nevada, where he attended the University of Nevada, Reno, from...

    The Pittsburgh Steelers’ sideline at Soldier Field was almost vacant, save for a few stray workers and four members of the coaching staff who stood at attention as the Star-Spangled Banner was sung in a deep bass by Lyric Opera of Chicago veteran Wilbur Pauley. The only Steelers player within range of his voice was offensive tackle Alejandro Villanueva, a West Point graduate and former Army Ranger who stood just outside the tunnel to the locker room, near the corner of the end zone. The rest of the Steelers chose a unique protest in response to Donald Trump’s unprovoked verbal...

    NBC News ^ | September 24, 2017 | Jonathan Allen
    President Donald Trump is getting exactly what he wanted from a racially charged confrontation with professional athletes and sports team owners: A morale boost for his base and a fight with those who see the refusal to stand for the National Anthem as an appropriate form of dissent. Trump’s fiery declaration on Friday night that National Football League owners should "fire or suspend" players who kneel during the anthem was met Saturday with fierce criticism and on Sunday with mass demonstrations of resistance on the field. Some players knelt, while others locked arms in solidarity. Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh...

    If you watch a NFL game, you are paying an anti-American Social Justice Warrior. This is not about race. Thousands of Black men died defending this country. 100's of thousands more have served honorably. They and their families stand for the Anthem and the flag. Only those who hate America kneel for the Anthem. If you see them do it, you are complicit and on their side. If it is related to the NFL, including the innumerable pre-game and analysis shows, it helps support America haters. And it would make YOU one of THEM.

    President Donald Trump's comments on Friday in Alabama that NFL teams should cut any player who protests during the national anthem left a bad taste in the mouths of many players, and it turns out multiple ownership groups took issue with his speech as well. "Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, 'Get that son of a b---- off the field right now," Trump said to a cheering crowd in Huntsville. "Out. He's fired. He's fired." Commissioner Roger Goodell called out the president for his remarks, and players from Richard...

    XXL ^ | September 23, 2017 | C. Vernon Coleman II
    President Donald Trump continues to prove that he might be one of the most petty politicians in history. After making controversial comments about the NFL, POTUS recently rescinded the offer for Steph Curry and the NBA champion, Golden State Warriors to visit the White House after Curry said he didn’t want to go in a recent interview. Going on one of his seemingly weekly Twitter tirades, Trump snapped, “Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team.Stephen Curry is hesitating,therefore invitation is withdrawn!” LeBron James quickly came to the defense of his fellow NBA All-Star...

    CNN Opinion ^ | September 23, 2017 | Professor Julian Zelizer, Political Analyst
    President Donald Trump is going to war with some high-profile African-American athletes who have political thoughts on their minds. The President said that fans should walk out when NFL players like Colin Kaepernick take a knee during the national anthem to protest our nation's inadequate response to racial inequities. After the NBA superstar Stephen Curry told the media that he did not want to go to the White House to be honored by Trump, the President decided to take time from his busy day to tweet a withdrawal of the invitation. It would be easy to see this as just...

    Throughout history, nations and peoples have taken to some form of entertainment and athleticism as an agreed-upon escape from the day-to-day; even during wartime. And for the most part, all parties viewed such venues ‘cease-fire’ zones, i.e, ‘This is a neutral realm. We don’t fight our battles here’. But due to incompetence of leadership and the desperation of this enemy, the Second Civil War has reached what used to be a neutral space – The American Gridiron.
  • Kneeling Players Need Look in the Mirror Before Insulting Trump

    Black & Blonde Media ^ | 9/23/17 | Bob Parks
    Friday night in Huntsville, Alabama, President Trump veered off from the political into sports and condemned the owners and athletes in the National Football League who either kneel or sit during the pre-game playing of our national anthem. While denouncing the president, let's be honest here: going to the White House for most of these black players only became a big deal when they could be pictured with the half-black president. Protesting such an honor only became taboo because of President Obama's skin color, and as President Trump is hated by most in the media and police shootings have become...

    The Hill ^ | September 23, 2017 | Josh Delk
    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) called President Trump a "bum & a disgrace" in a tweet Saturday, agreeing with NBA star LeBron James's earlier comments bashing Trump. "Thank you @jemelehill & @KingJames! Speak truth to power. Trump is a bum & a disgrace & it's never too early to get ready for impeachment," Waters tweeted. (TWEET-AT-LINK) Waters's tweet came after James called Trump a "bum" over the president's announcement that fellow NBA player Stephen Curry was no longer welcome at the White House. Trump had tweeted that he was rescinding the White House invitation to Curry after the Golden State Warriors...
