  • Ravens Fans Burn Gear, Swear Off NFL After Anthem-Kneeling

    09/26/2017 2:12:15 AM PDT · by 11th_VA · 13 replies ^ | Sept 25, 2017 | By Jonathan McCall
    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Ravens fans recorded themselves burning their team gear Sunday after Baltimore players were among the first in the league to take a knee during the national anthem following President Donald Trump’s harsh criticism of the practice. At a Friday rally, the president said that NFL owners should, when dealing with a player kneeling during the anthem, “get that son of a b**** off the field.” The president doubled down on his initial remarks over the course of the weekend, calling on NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to tell players to stand, and saying those who don’t should be...
  • 'BURN THE NFL': Americans are destroying football jerseys after players kneel in Protest

    Some football fans are raging against players' decision to demonstrate during the national anthem. After more than a year of Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players sitting and kneeling during the national anthem, the controversy over their protests has reached a tipping point. More players than ever before knelt or sat during the anthem on Sunday, after Trump argued that those who did so should be suspended or fired. On Friday, Trump said: "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...

    Offended by New Orleans Saints players who protested by sitting during the national anthem Sunday (Sept. 24), state House Rep. Kenny Havard, R-Jackson, called for Louisiana's government to pull state funding, tax breaks and other support from the professional football franchise. "Disrespecting our national anthem and flag in the name of social injustice is the highest form of hypocrisy," Havard said in a written statement Monday. State Rep. Valarie Hodges, R-Denham Springs, has also requested the Saints' state benefits be reviewed by the Legislature's Senate and House budget committees as a result of the players' protest. Hodges is a member...

    The Advocate ^ | Sept 25, 2017
    Another Louisiana eatery, this one in Denham Springs, has announced it will no longer televise NFL football after many players staged a protest during the national anthem on Sunday. Sarita's Grill & Cantina Denham posted Monday on its Facebook page that the ban on NFL games and the NFL network is "until further notice."

"However, we do not support anyone that disrespects our Flag, our Country, and the people who have fought and/or died for the freedoms that we have." Dozens of initial comments attached to the post as...

    A Slidell-based Carnival krewe has uninvited a pair of New Orleans Saints players to serve as grand marshals for the krewe's 2018 parade after the players participated in a protest during the national anthem prior to Sunday's (Sept. 24) game, WVUE-Fox 8 reports. The Krewe of Poseidon took back invites to players Kenny Vaccaro and Alex Okafor, who had already agreed to serve as grand marshals, after they sat during the anthem in Charlotte, according to the news station. Vaccaro and Okafor were among 10 Saints and 150 professional football players around the National Football League who refused to stand...
  • Why Taking a Knee Is Not Only Unpatriotic, It’s Ignorant

    09/26/2017 1:50:32 AM PDT · by Helicondelta · 8 replies ^ | 25 9 17 | Kris W. Kobach
    The act of NFL players taking a knee during the National Anthem has gone from being a stunt to a plague that is infecting the whole league. When NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell responded to President Trump’s criticism by defending the players, he showed that he not only has no clue why NFL viewership is in the tank, he also has no clue what the National Anthem is all about. The absurdity reached a new high on Sunday, when players for the Jacksonville Jaguars and Baltimore Ravens at an exhibition game in London refused to stand for the National Anthem, but...

    Many Seattle Seahawks fans bombarded the KING 5 Facebook page Sunday, declaring they were not watching Sunday's Seahawks-Titans game because the team chose to stay in the locker room for the national anthem. During a halftime analysis on Facebook Live, KING 5 Sports anchor Chris Egan and sports producer Joel Knip were asking for fans' reaction to the game, which Tennessee was leading 9-7. But what they got was a slew of comments from upset fans. It comes after players across the league took a knee during the anthem or stayed in the locker room in response to President Donald...

    Rev. Jesse Jackson said President Trump’s criticism of NFL players kneeling during the national anthem were an example of the “slave-master-servant mentality" in a interview with The New York Times. “They should all kneel, not against the flag, but against the interference by Mr. Trump with their First Amendment rights,” Jackson said. “If the cotton pickers don’t pick cotton, the industry doesn’t move; the N.F.L. and N.B.A. players don’t play the game, it doesn’t move.” Jackson’s comments follow Trump’s weekend criticism of NFL players who choose to kneel during “The Star-Spangled Banner," a protest started by quarterback Colin Kaepernick as...

    The Trump administration has added North Korea to a list of countries subject to an anti-immigration executive order limiting or banning entry to the US. Trump announced the addition of North Korea to the travel ban list in a presidential proclamation on the evening of Sept. 24. “North Korea does not cooperate with the United States Government in any respect [in terms of information about those attempting entry] and fails to satisfy all information-sharing requirements,” the proclamation stated. In the proclamation, Trump stated the terms as applying to “immigrants and non-immigrants” - effectively banning entry to the US for all...

    Is it just me, or is anyone else feeling a bit queasy about Facebook titan Mark Zuckerberg having a say in what does, and what doesn't, 'qualify' as Free Speech ??? All the Leftists and Zuckerberg's of the world seem to state that only *their* brand of 'free speech' is legitimate, and all other expressions of 'free speech' are either racist, sexist, homophobic, environmentally toxic, and blah blah blah blah blah ... Putting on my tin-foil-hat now: It seems that all this cultural upheaval has been carefully choreographed for the sole purpose of disrupting American society for the benefit of...
