Black Fan Turns Off NFL

Saturday night working in my wood shop, I heard a reporter on the radio say, “Trump has found someone else to pick a fight with, the NFL.” Clearly, the reporter wanted listeners to believe Trump was the bad guy. And yet, fake news media swears their reporting is not biased.

Leftists are outraged because Trump said, “The NFL should fire or suspend players who kneel during our national anthem.” I totally agree with our president. I suspect a majority of Americans also agree. Strictly from a common sense business point of view, shouldn’t team owners stop their players from doing things that turn off football fans? America and football fans have been extremely good to these spoiled brat wealthy players. Pro athletes live lives far above most Americans in terms of finances, power and influence. Fans do not deserve pro athletes slapping us in the face.

My immediate response to Trump’s recommendation to the NFL was, “Amen brother! Thank God for Donald Trump!” Folks, I am so sick of wimpy politicians. More and more our country is turning into a bizarro-world in which politicians are terrified of offending Leftists, scrambling to meet their absurd demands. Trump is a straight-talkin’ real man with backbone; a long-awaited breath of fresh air in the international political arena.

On Sunday, seeing NFL coaches and players in locked arms, protesting Trump for criticizing players who dis our flag was devastating to me as a football fan. We tune in to watch football, not to see players giving our nation their middle finger. By NFL owners, coaches and players saying screw you Trump, I feel like the NFL is saying screw you America and fans.

I caught the NFL’s shameful protest on the Steelers/Bears half time show. I tried to continue watching the game, but my conscience would not allow me to do so. Too many men have suffered and died for our flag to remain flying high. I cannot watch a football league that is supportive of players disrespecting our flag, our country and their fans.

Adding insult to injury, the NFL partnered with fake news media in accusing Trump of being divisive for standing up for our country. See how Leftists operate? They attack our principles, values and traditions. When we push-back defending ourselves, Leftists call us haters and the aggressors.

The politicization of a once Sunday pastime is a prime example of what happens when you allow Leftists aggression to go unchecked. Don’t give them an inch. Kaepernick taking a knee during our anthem should have been nipped in the bud, not tolerated. Outrageously, Kaepernick’s disrespect for America has spread like a virus via causal contact throughout the entire NFL and beyond.

Leftists are never satisfied. White America has bent over backwards making special concessions for blacks; affirmative action, racial quotas and so on. Blacks are only 12% of the population. It took the votes of millions of white Americans to elect a non-deserving black president for two terms. Have you noticed that every new law, lowered standard or new entitlement is never enough? If I were white, I would say, “For crying out loud, what do I have to do to make Leftists and blacks stop branding me a racist? What else must whites do to make Kaepernick and his fellow black millionaire football players happy?”

Have you ever heard the NAACP, Congressional Black Caucus or Black Lives Matter say anything good about white America? No. These racial hate profiteers relentlessly promote their evil bogus narrative that America is still a hellhole of extreme racism against blacks. Their lie is destroying the NFL.

A relative said though Kaepernick has never suffered racism, he is a hero for standing up for other blacks. I challenge Kaepernick and all his Leftists supporters to tell me where in America are blacks suffering massive racism. Folks, there is no such place. Blacks are not routinely murdered by police. Blacks are routinely murdering each other in record numbers. This is what wealthy high-profile black players should be protesting, off the football field.

Like it or not, NFL players are role models. Emulating the pros, 8 year old football players are taking a knee during our National Anthem. Folks, that is a disgrace.

I lost something Sunday. Pro football was something a few liberal black relatives and I enjoyed without getting into our political differences. We would text each other during games about scores, great plays, bad calls and so on. That pleasure has ended.

I am pretty much done with NFL football this season. Thank you president Trump for once again confronting Leftists, standing up for us. You the man!

    I read this quote somewhere & it really resonates with me: “Protesters are people who have never been handed a folded flag.”

    All this is are progressives playing the blame game. It only serves to divide us & keep the black man down. I truly believe Trump purposely started this NFL thing knowing it would dominate this conversation instead of the upcoming GOP failure of not repealing Obamacare.

    Will be switching from Republican to Independent-status next election due in large part to the Rhinos (McCain, Cruz, etc. & GOP “swampies.”

    Not sure what part of the constitution you live by? But taking knee in silence is disrespectful how? It’s funny how all of a sudden standing up for what an American citizen believes in an injustice is anti-American? When this country was founded on protest about the way mother-England was treating its colonies. Hate and hypocrisy has filled the air. Never thought I would hear other Americans tell others how to peacefully practice their civil liberties?

      You’re confused so I’ll break it down slowly for you. The act of standing up while the national anthem is playing whilst looking at the flag is a sign of respect toward this country and those who serve (present & past). As far as protesting is concerned if you kneel this is emblematic of one protesting stars & stripes and all that she represents (freedom & liberty). Get it now?

      I definitely support America’s freedom of speech and peaceful protest. However it’s not the knee bending I detest but rather the venue in which it occurs. Fans pay a lot of money to attend NFL games and not to have their flag and nation disrespected. If the players, coaches, etc want to display their hatred of the vast majority of Americans, perhaps they should use some of their millions of dollars to begin their protests in stadiums they rent and give free admission to all who care to attend, in stead of forcing hard working Americans to pay for it involuntarily…but leftists can only gain ground by totalitarian tactics. Ever wonder why their world view must be forced upon people? Sol Alinski -ites all.

    I wish I could stop paying taxes that fund the thugs known as cops, but while it’s OK for people to boycott the NFL..cops will kill you if you don’t pay really who are the bad guys? The NFL isn’t going to kick in your door for not watching and buying their product. I’m not an hyphenated American. I am individual, I am my father and mothers son, I’m my brothers sibling, I am ME before I’m any political nationalistic designation

    Thank you for a quantitative summary of all the nuances and overt aggression that is now full blown into attacks on free thinking and personal values. This and your other article about moderate leftists are excellent and hopefully they are read by as many people as possible. At the very least, the reaffirm core values & tolerance doesn’t make a “ist” or “obic”. 🙏🇺🇸
