NFL Thug Begs For Job… Promises “Never to Kneel” For Anthem Ever Again

The long list of NFL players who thought it would be a good idea to entangle liberal politics with their sport are now learning that most teams are not interested in giving them jobs — no matter how good they are at throwing a sports ball around a field for millions.

Some of them aren’t up for free agency yet, but the ones who are stand little chance of being picked up, as team owners know the fans won’t stand for it. Eric Reid, one of the original flag kneeling anti-American NFL players, is one of them. Now he’s resorted to essentially begging…

Hannity reports:

An NFL star who pioneered “taking a knee” during the performance of the US national anthem at professional football games announced he plans to pursue a “different approach” heading into the 2018 season.

According to ESPN, Eric Reid -who spearheaded the protest alongside teammate Colin Kaepernick in 2016- said during a recent interview that he no longer intends to kneel during the performance of the ‘Star-Spangled Banner.’

“I’m not saying I’m going to stop being active because I won’t. I’m just going to consider different ways to be active, different ways to bring awareness to the issues of this country and improve on the issues happening in this country,” said Reid.

“I don’t think it will be in the form of protesting during the anthem. I say ‘during’ because it’s crazy that the narrative changed to we were ‘protesting the anthem,’ and that wasn’t the case. I think we’re going to take a different approach to how we’re going to be active,” he added.

Reid’s comments come more than a week into his search for a contract, with many team owners and officials opting to stay away from “controversial” players after a disastrous 2017 season.

HAHA! Trump Just Got The LAST Laugh on EVERY NFL Anthem Protester! KARMA SUCKS!

Over the last year, disrespectful NFL players knelt during the national anthem creating a firestorm of criticism from the fans to President Trump. These anti-American players claimed that they were kneeling to protest racial inequality in America all while they cashed million dollars checks and drove expensive cars back to their mansions in gated communities. As the national anthem protests by these nasty NFL players grew, so did the number of fans boycotting the games and as a result, the ratings took a nose dive. However, despite the poor ratings and NFL stadiums emptying out across the country, these race-baiting players still did not get the message to no one cared about their protest.

Well, now that is about to change as players in the NFL just received a hefty dose of karma for their disgusting antics giving Trump and every red-blooded American the last laugh.

If there is one thing that we learned from these protests over the last year, is that these ungrateful players have no concept what it means to be an American in our country. Otherwise, if they did, they would hardly be kneeling during the national anthem essentially spitting in the face of every veteran who has sacrificed their lives to protect their right to protest. Oh, the irony, right?

Sadly, that concept has eluded these selfish players for a while, but now they are about to understand that there is always a consequence to their actions. Just recently, two NFL Houston Texans agents revealed that the team would pass over free agent players that participated in the controversial protests, and hopefully, they stick with it.

Here is more from Fox News:

“The widespread national anthem protests that took the NFL by storm last season will reportedly have an impact on how the Houston Texans pursue free agents.

Two NFL agents told the Houston Chronicle on Saturday that the team is not interested in players who participated in protests during the national anthem.

There is no official directive in the organization, but it is understood that the team isn’t going to pursue anyone who participated in the protests, the paper reported.

However, the Houston Texans slammed the report Monday calling it “categorically false and without merit.”

“A recent report that suggests the Houston Texans would not sign a player who has protested in support of social justice issues is categorically false and without merit. The Texans ownership, coaching, personnel and executive staff sign and hire employees based on talent, character and fit within our organization,” the Texans wrote in a statement.

The Texans had their own controversy during the season after team owner Bob McNair said that “we can’t have the inmates running the prison” during a meeting of NFL owners about players who protest by kneeling during the national anthem.

He said that if he had a chance to do it over, he would not have used the expression.

McNair insisted he wasn’t referring to the players with his comments. He said he was “referring to the relationship between the league office and team owners and how they have been making significant strategic decisions affecting our league without adequate input from ownership over the past few years.”

A majority of the Texans responded to McNair’s comments by kneeling during the national anthem before the following game.”

Of course, they are going to deny that they said this, considering the amount of pushback they would receive from thousands of social justice warriors screaming discrimination, but it isn’t.

The only thing that will get these nasty NFL players attention is to hit them where it hurts, and that is in the pocketbook. If the NFL wants to continue making money, they are going to have to take a harsher stance against these players and their ridiculous protest.

A team or any employer has the right to decide who they want representing them, and they can choose to pass over potential players who may cause issues within in the team. NFL owners need to face the music that these ungrateful players who have been kneeling during the national anthem are bad news for their franchise, and it would be in their best interest not to sign them.

Incoming St. Paul Mayor Claims National Anthem Is ‘Ode to Slavery’ During Inaugural Speech

Melvin Carter

The new mayor of St. Paul, Minnesota, had strong words against the national anthem during his inaugural speech to the city. He did allow the song to be played — but on one condition: All of the verses, not just the first, be played.

The Pioneer Press reported Mayor Melvin Carter’s III reasoning for playing the entire song was so the rarely heard third verse would be heard.

The verse goes as follows:

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore

That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion,

A home and a country, should leave us no more?

Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps’ pollution.

No refuge could save the hireling and slave

From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:

And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave,

O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Carter said the anthem, with the third verse specifically, is an “ode to slavery.”

“We cannot ignore the painful reminder, written into our anthem’s third verse, of just how deeply injustice is rooted in the American tradition…Our national freedom song is an ode to slavery,” he said.

“This is the American paradox,“ Carter continued. ”Passed from generation to generation, dating back to the noble group of rich white straight male landowners who embedded into our founding principles a yearning for a set of God-given rights they sought to secure for only themselves.”

With the national anthem protests before NFL games making headlines in 2016, attention was brought to the third verse. According to supporters of the protests — which was started by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick to raise awareness of racial injustice — it was further proof of the deep racism within the country.

Some historians, however, have said broader context shows that’s not exactly the case.

Professor Mark Clague, who teaches music history, American culture, African- and Afro-American history, explained the verse is author Francis Scott Key’s way of skewering the enemies of the United States, both black and white.

He also points out the song praises the defenders of Fort McHenry, which included free black men and former slaves.

PATHETIC: PLAYERS PROTESTING NATIONAL ANTHEM CLAIM TO RESPECT THE TROOPS IN NEW NFL COMMERCIAL (VIDEO)

National Anthem protests

The NFL boycott appears to be having an effect, as the NFL is trying to convince fans they actually do respect America’s military. Incredibly, they are doing that by getting the same players who are protesting the National Anthem to “thank” the troops in a new Veterans Day commercial.

The commercial is one of several TV spots the NFL has been running during the Veterans Day weekend. Among the players featured are the following players, who have either participated in, or voiced support for, the National Anthem protests against America and the troops.

  • Delanie Walker of the Tennessee Titans, who said that even though he supports the troops and traveled with the USO, he has stayed in the locker room during the National Anthem to fight for equal rights. He also said “And the fans that don’t want to come to the game? I mean, OK. Bye. I mean, if you feel that’s something, we’re disrespecting you, don’t come to the game. You don’t have to. No one’s telling you to come to the game. It’s your freedom of choice to do that.” His statement led to his receiving death threats.
  • Doug Baldwin of the Seattle Seahawks, who had not knelt during the anthem, but has voiced support for those who do. He insists the protests are about injustice, not disrespect for the troops, the anthem, or the flag.
  • Chris Long of the Philadelphia Eagles, who was the first white player to kneel during the National Anthem. His father is Hall of Famer and actor Howie Long of Fox’s NFL broadcast team.
  • Malcolm Jenkins of the Philadelphia Eagles, who has held up the “black power” fist during the anthem this season.

Here is the commercial.

Army Ranger Who Was Only Player To Stand For Anthem Shocks Americans With What He Did On Veterans Day

Two days after President Trump blasted NFL players who chose to disrespect the flag in September, hundreds of players knelt in protest during the national anthem or stayed in their team locker room. One team that remained in their locker room was the Pittsburgh Steelers. Head coach Mike Tomlin stated before the September 24 game that the team would stay in their locker room during the national anthem, but that is not what ended up happening.

When the national anthem began to play, one player was spotted outside the tunnel with his hand over his heart. That player was offensive lineman Alejandro Villanueva, a former Army Ranger who served three tours in Afghanistan.

Now, Villanueva is planning something rather special for veterans across the country this Veterans Day weekend that will have red-blooded Americans cheering. 

This weekend, many fans will be watching to see what NFL players will do in regards to their disrespectful national anthem protest. For months, the American people have witnessed NFL players kneeling during the national anthem essentially spitting the face of veterans across the country. It has not been confirmed if teams will kneel during the national anthem during today’s games, but we do know that Alejandro Villanueva has something else planned.

Alejandro Villanueva of the Pittsburgh Steelers is passing out Army decals to all his teammates to wear on their helmets in today’s game against the Indianapolis Colts which to many fans if a breath of fresh air.  

Here is more from ESPN:

The Steelers will recognize Veterans Day this weekend by wearing helmet decals representing the various Army divisions in an effort led by left tackle Alejandro Villanueva.

Villanueva, whose background as a former Army Ranger made him a prominent figure in the league’s controversy over the national anthem, told ESPN he is presenting each Steelers teammate with an Army decal to wear for Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts. A player will represent one Army division, as Villanueva has decals representing 13 different divisions that he will spread around the locker room.

“It’s just a small-unit patch that really doesn’t mean much in the grand scheme of things, but the history behind it means the whole world to a lot of veterans,” Villanueva said. “They died for that patch. When you watch the Steelers on Sunday and you see the flash of the 10th [Mountain] division and the 7th [Infantry] division … you’re calling out specific units.”

Villanueva was part of two divisions, 10th Mountain and 75th Ranger Regiment, and served in Afghanistan before becoming an NFL player.

He is pairing the decals with players whose personalities match the spirit of a specific division. Villanueva received the decals from the Army football team and said he has cleared their game-day usage through the Steelers.

As an example of his process, Villanueva will give right tackle Chris Hubbard the 101st Airborne “Screaming Eagles” Division decal because the player and division are known for reserved but efficient workmanship. Backup quarterback Landry Jones gets the 1st Armored Division in part because Jones knows Villanueva’s brother-in-law, who served with that division.

During protests in Week 3, Villanueva stood alone outside of the tunnel during the national anthem, which he and other players classified as a confusion in the Steelers’ attempt to respond to President Donald Trump’s explosive comments about NFL players days earlier.

Villanueva said Veterans Day was an ideal time to honor soldiers through the decals since the NFL allows it this week. He has notified coach Mike Tomlin of his plans.

But Villanueva knows that alone won’t bridge what he calls a growing divide between the NFL and parts of the military. He notices this when he visits veteran hospitals every Tuesday.

“There’s tension between the veteran community and the NFL. You go to VFW’s, and they won’t show NFL games,” Villanueva said. “[Veterans] don’t know if it’s, ‘Do we have to live in a utopian, perfect country for you to stand up for the national anthem?’ It’s a very tough concept for a lot of veterans to understand. I go back and forth because I’m in the middle of this whole thing. I’m a football player, but obviously, the flag is the most important thing to me while I’m in this country.

“At the end of the day, people love football. It’s a reality. We shouldn’t deprive ourselves of this great sport because of the unfortunate things that are surrounding things happening off the field.”

It is wonderful to witness a player honoring our veterans, but will it be enough to reverse the damage that has been done. For months, too many players have spit in the face of our nation’s heroes by kneeling during the national anthem that a simple decal on a helmet isn’t enough to erase that disrespect.

Now, of course, this is a kind gesture by Villanueva and a great start in repairing the damage done by these nasty protests, but it will take more than a decal to change everyone’s feelings.

One New York Giant, Two 49ers Protest During the Anthem on Veterans Day

Three players took a knee during the national anthem before the New York Giants game at the San Francisco 49ers, while the rest of the league stood during Veterans Day weekend.

Eric Reid and Marquise Goodwin protested on the 49ers sideline, while the Giants’ Olivier Vernon knelt on the New York sideline.

The protesters opted to kneel for the anthem despite a request from the NFL Players Association, that all players observe the 2-minute moment of silence to honor veterans before the games on Sunday.

According to the Associated Press, “Other players who have been protesting most of the season stood for the anthem this week, including the Seahawks Michael Bennett, who stood before Thursday night’s game. Titans receiver Rishard Matthews walked onto the field holding hands with soldiers and stood with teammates for the anthem for the first time since President Donald Trump criticized players for protesting.

“Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick began the protest movement last season. He remains unsigned and has filed a complaint that team owners colluded against him because of the protests — aimed at police brutality against African-Americans and other issues.”

NFL Just Announced What Its Anthem Policy Will Be for Veterans Day — It Will Piss People Off

The NFL has had a hard time over the past couple of months, as hundreds of players have protested during the national anthem, leading the league to become one of the most divisive brands in the entire country. Ratings have plummeted as a result, but NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has decided to allow the protests to continue.

Now, Veterans Day is approaching, and the topic is making headlines yet again. However, the NFL made an announcement stating it would not be changing its policy despite tremendous pushback.

One Facebook page named Boycott The NFL has over 200,000 followers and created a video asking viewers to boycott on Veterans Day weekend. The video has received over 10 million views and over 670,000 shares.

REMEMBER! November 12th, on Veterans Day weekend, Americans will be boycotting Football en masse — make sure to participate in getting the NFL's ratings to an all-time low.Show the NFL how you REALLY feel with an official "I Proudly Stand For The National Anthem" shirt!

Posted by Boycott The NFL on Monday, September 25, 2017

One of the page’s posts stated:

We will be not be watching or listening to NFL games on November 12th in solidarity with veterans around the country, as football players have continued to disrespect the national anthem, the American flag, and everything our nation stands for.

Meanwhile, one NFL player has taken a different approach to the day. Alejandro Villanueva, the only player to appear and stand for the national anthem on his team several weeks ago, gave each one of his teammates an Army patch to place on their helmet for their game on Sunday.

Because of all the national anthem controversy, broadcasters have chosen to stop showing the anthem altogether in an attempt to avoid the drama and save their ratings.

College Cheerleaders Kneel During Anthem… IMMEDIATELY WISH THEY HADN’T!

Over the past few weeks, hundreds of NFL players have been taking a knee during the national anthem to protest against President Donald Trump and racial inequality. Now, these anti-American protests has even spread to college cheerleaders…

The Des Moines Register reported that the Buena Vista University cheerleaders took a knee during the national anthem at a recent game in Storm Lake, Iowa.

Unfortunately for these cheerleaders, however, their college took more action than the NFL ever dared to and started a policy requiring the people on the field to “stand for the national anthem as a unified team.” The policy states that athletes and cheerleaders “will be allowed to kneel before the anthem if they choose.”

BVU cheerleader Alyssa Parker was so enraged by this that she decided to quit the team, saying that she wants to stick to her convictions and that she doesn’t think peaceful protest should be confined to a time slot.

“(Fighting) social injustice, standing up for what I believe in and using my voice for others who no longer have one: These are beliefs I hold to my core,” Parker wrote in a Facebook post announcing her decision. “They are what make me Alyssa. I couldn’t bring myself to give that up.”

“The reason we took a knee was to stand up for social injustice and have a voice for the men and women who no longer have one,” Parker said. “When I think about those values, those are things that I hold to my core. I feel like those are the things that make me who I am and what I want to do with a career and so I think it was important for me to take a step back and realize that I’m 20, I’m about to be an adult. It’s time to make adult decisions and make decisions that are best for me and my future.”

BVU President Joshua Merchant said that the intended message of anthem-kneeling has been obscured in a din of misdirected outrage.

“Everybody’s talking about the action,” he said. “Nobody’s talking about the meaning. To me, I think that’s what continually lost around the country.”

Merchant has pledged to organize more campus events to tackle “what really is the issue: Social justice and racial inequities and really focusing on creating a larger conversation.”

It’s ridiculous that is has become “cool” for young people to disrespect our country by kneeling for the national anthem.

Football Refs See Players Take Knee During Anthem, Set Internet On Fire With Protest Of Their Own

The NFL anthem protests have been spreading across the country and it is getting out of hand.

We had one baseball player try it and we had NBA players talk about it until they were shut down by NBA commissioner Adam Silver.

But the NFL keeps setting a bad example for the young people in America and in New Jersey this weekend things came to head.

After players from Monroe High School knelt during the national anthem, two game referees had had enough.

And decided to teach these young morons the proper way to mount a protest and teach them some manners.

They saw the players take a knee and as soon as the anthem was done, which they stood for, they walked off the field and promptly went viral.

Good job.

According to IJR, the two referees were Ernie Lunardelli and his son Anthony Lunardelli.

I’m not in favor of anyone disrespecting our country, our flag, the armed forces,” Ernie Lunardelli told NJ Advance Media, “What they’re protesting has nothing to do with the national anthem and I’m against it, so I decided to protest for them kneeling and that’s what I did. Whoever is disrespecting that flag and the national anthem, that’s who I have a problem with,” Lunardelli said.

Then he got real and hopefully America is listening, because this is important.

‘I don’t care if it’s a baby, if it’s an 80-year-old man, anybody. I don’t care. Any race, color, I don’t care who it is. It’s not the way I was brought up and it pisses me off that people are doing that. What hurts the most is these kids don’t even know why they’re kneeling. I just don’t understand why this is happening, especially at the high school level. If you’re not happy with being in America, go somewhere else. It’s that simple.”

Jackie Robinson’s Wife Breaks Silence On Anthem Protests, Sets The Media On Fire

The recent controversy surrounding the NFL National Anthem protests has been circulating all over the country which was started by Colin Kaepernick. His reasoning for kneeling for the Anthem is because he feels people of color are being oppressed systematically.

Kaepernick grew up in a privileged upper-middle class home before being offered a multi million dollar contract to play for the NFL. The other protesters are also very privileged with million dollar salaries and lives of luxury. The essence of the American Dream.

However, many black players of major league sports that came before people like Kaepernick, faced real oppression unlike anything today’s players could imagine.

One of those players being, Jackie Robinson, who who became the first African American to play in Major League Baseball in the modern era.

TMZ managed to catch up to Robinson’s widow, Rachel Robinson, at an airport outside of Los Angeles. They asked her what he would have thought of the kneelers and what he would have done.

Robinson said she didn’t know for sure if he would have, but she said she thinks he probably would not have knelt.

She said, “I have no idea, but I doubt it.” When she was asked if he would have stood, Robinson said, “I think so. I don’t know.”

“That generation, it’s different. I don’t know, and it’s not fair for me to even speak of him since he’s been gone for quite a few years.”

This is something that protesters wouldn’t like to hear. But the idea is that back when blacks faced real oppression, they had something to protest. But in today’s age, there is no oppression anymore.
