    Tim hit another one out of the park. People get offended if black people don't stand for the National Anthem. After watching this, you can't blame them.

    I don't care what the color of your skin is, I'm offended at anyone going down on a knee in the front of our flag and during the National Anthem!

    And so you have that right to be.

    And those Americans have the right not to care about you being offended.

    It's a funny world we live in where you would think that you being offended is somehow more
    important that a group of Americans' expression.

    Newsflash! Not too many black Americans care about you being offended.
    You're about 60 years too late, my friend.
    But then again, you have the right to dream!

    If black people hate it here so much, hate our Flag, hate white people...why don't they move out of our country?

    They are free to leave and go apply to live somewhere else. Please do, go find happiness somewhere else. We don't want you miserable here.

    And quite frankly, there is nothing "funny" about a group of American's who continue to play the race card. Continue to have the chip on their shoulder, poor me attitude. Resist getting along, resist our law enforcement, look for trouble. All in the attitude no matter what color you are.

    Is this going to go on another 150 years? Good grief, just move off our soil. We do not want it and we do not need this here. That is not what thousands of our soldiers died for your freedom for.

    Go back to Africa...they will take much better care of you I'm sure.

    Things are hunky dory there, great housing, full of good education and opportunity, plenty of jobs. Everybody gets along and is in love with love and the feeling of love. It is utopia.

    Why don't they go? Nothing stopping these people that are so miserable here.

    Spare Me Your Crocodile Tears About The New NFL Anthem Rule

    JAZZ SHAWPosted at 8:01 am on May 25, 2018




    It’s still roughly three months until the first pre-season NFL game kicks off, but football is all over the news. Sadly, this heightened coverage during the off-season is cropping up for all the wrong reasons. Ever since the announcement of the new ban on kneeling during the National Anthem this week, everyone has an opinion, including some people who I imagine have never been to a football game in their lives. One critic said the gesture would be “hollow,” while Chelsea Handler took to Twitter with her usual, insightful (/sarc) commentary.

    Imagine if blacklivesmatter was white livesmatter and a bunch of white NFL players were peacefully protesting by taking a knee. That would be fine. The NFL IS AS RACIST AS OUR PRESIDENT. 1St amendment, anyone? Is there any republicans willing to stand up for our country.
    5:32 PM - May 24, 2018



    Yesterday we heard from Shaun R. Harper, writing at the Washington Post. Mr. Harper is a Provost Professor at the University of Southern California and is listed as a “racial equity expert.” As you might imagine, he sees the kneeling ban as some sort of plantation mentality oppression, where primarily white owners are dictating the speech and actions of the largely black players.

    This is an obvious violation of players’ First Amendment rights. And the issue is inescapably about race.
    According to data from the Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport, 94 percent of NFL franchise owners and 75 percent of head coaches are white. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and most of the league’s top executives are white. Blacks own majority stakes in none of the 32 teams. Only seven NFL head coaches in 2017 were black. Yet 70 percent of NFL players are black. This new policy clearly signals white control of black players’ bodies and rights to kneel in peaceful protest against police brutality and other racial issues during the national anthem. Put differently, a majority white group of overseers created and will enforce a policy restricting black players’ freedom of expression. The power is seemingly not with those who use their bodies to earn $7.8 billion for their teams and the league, but rather with whites who profit most from their labor.


    This has long since passed the point of being merely tiresome. One might have thought that 25% of the coaches being black in a country where blacks make up less than 13% of the population might be seen as progress, but that’s not actually the issue here. As much as Mr. Harper and so many others like him may want to make this about race, it’s actually a question of doing your job. Of those billions of dollars the league takes in, a fair percentage of it goes to pay the players incredible salaries. Fourteen players are currently earning more than $20M per year. The lowest paid rookie who spends the entire season on the bench this year will earn $480K.

    And just like the rest of the people around the country who, on average, have to work all year long to earn what one of these pampered jocks takes home during the first quarter of the first pre-season game, the players have a job to do. They have a boss to report to. And there are rules of conduct for the workplace. If you don’t like the rules where you work you are free to quit and go see if you can find someone willing to pay you a half million dollars per year for stocking the shelves at Target. If you work in a typical office anywhere else in the country, when you are in the office and on the clock, you’re expected to be working. If you choose instead to march around the cubicle farm putting on a display to protest racial inequity or anything else you will soon be protesting in the unemployment line. If you begin acting out in a way that harms the bottom line of the business you will be out the door. That’s not because your boss necessarily doesn’t sympathize with your cause, but because they’re paying you to be there and work. You are free to protest on your own time.

    It should be no different for the NFL players. And unlike most of the rest of us who toil away in comparative obscurity for a fraction of the riches they receive, these players have a huge platform to get their message out. Any time they like they can have their agent call a press conference and the media will show up. The best most of the rest of the country can do is paint a message on a piece of cardboard and march around in front of City Hall. The audacity to believe that you’re so special that you can thumb your nose at your employer and face no consequences is beyond insulting.

    And let’s be clear what’s really going on with these protests. You can call it a racial issue all you like, but the method chosen to deliver the message isn’t about race. It’s about America. They could protest during warmups, while player introductions are going on or at halftime, assuming there are no rules in place against it. But these players specifically chose to act out in front of the flag while the nation’s National Anthem is playing. That’s not some comment on specific racial inequality. That’s a shot across the bow of the country as a whole. If you really think the United States is that bad, try Canada. I hear Johnny Football is all the rage with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats these days.

    This mess is still the league’s fault, of course, and it could all have been avoided. If Roger Goodell had sprung into action on the first day that Kaepernick took a knee and introduced a rule stating that all players will stand during the Anthem the problem would have been solved. Anyone complaining about it could simply be pointed in the direction of the NBA. They have had a rule in place for decades which states that “players, coaches, and trainers are to stand and line up in a dignified posture along the sidelines or on the foul line during the playing of the National Anthem.” And with all due respect to Shaun Harper, the vast majority of NBA players are also black while the teams are largely owned by white men. But somehow the NBA isn’t racist?

    Spare me the righteous indignation. The players have some of the largest megaphones in the nation to get their message out and the league is working with the Players’ Association to promote their cause off the field. When game day comes, suck it up, get yourself into uniform, follow the rules and play the damn game.

    It is not funny that you think your agenda is more important to us than our own agendas.

    Then you should accept that not too many other Americans care about you being offended.

    You seem to live on Youtube. You haven't much to say, so you post videos.

    No Way to Treat Old Glory

    By RICH LOWRY

    • September 26, 2017 4:00 AM





    The American flag is not to be trifled with.Old Glory is almost certainly the most honored flag in the world.
    The late political scientist Samuel Huntington marveled at its place in our national life: We pledge allegiance to it. The national anthem celebrates it. An incredibly elaborate code stipulates how it is to be displayed, handled, and maintained. It even has its own holiday.

    “Since the Civil War,” Huntington wrote, “Americans have been a flag-oriented people. The Stars and Stripes has the status of a religious icon and is a more central symbol of national identity for Americans than their flags are for peoples of other nations.”

    The NFL players who kneel during the national anthem — a phenomenon that increased exponentially after President Donald Trump colorfully demanded that they stand — are disrespecting the most potent and enduring national symbol of the most patriotic nation on Earth.

    Not only are they wrong to do so, they aren’t delivering the devastating rebuke to Trump that they may imagine.

    The power of national — or imperial — symbols isn’t anything new. The Romans couldn’t abide the collective disgrace of losing their standards to the enemy in battle, and would undertake great exertions to win them back.
    The American flag is layered with history and meaning. As Tim Marshall recounts in his book A Flag Worth Dying For, its roots probably reach back prior to the country’s independence. It may owe its red and white stripes to the flag of the Sons of Liberty, the revolutionary agitators who carried out the Boston Tea Party.

    The “rebellious stripes” of that flag, lacking a field of stars, don’t look like much. In 1777, the Continental Congress added the stars — “white in a blue field representing a new constellation.” The flag took time to catch on. The Civil War, which tested the integrity of the flag, represented a watershed. It came to be known as Old Glory at this time courtesy of a cussed merchant seaman named William Driver, who demonstrated a characteristic American attitude to the Stars and Stripes.

    Driver had retired to Nashville, Tennessee, with his flag still in his possession. When local Confederates demanded that he hand it over, he replied that they were welcome to take it … over his dead body. Secreted away in a bed quilt, the flag was eventually handed over to Union forces, and the legend of Old Glory spread.

    After the war, Union veterans advocated for the display of the flag and for its veneration. The National Flag Conference of 1923 — yes, there was a national flag conference — set out the code subsequently adopted by Congress.
    Per the code, “the flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing.” It states that “no disrespect should be shown to the flag,” and when it is taken down, it should be placed into “waiting hands and arms.”
    Some of the code is honored in the breach — it urges against using the flag on clothing or in advertisements — but it captures America’s passion for its flag. At times of crisis, the phrase “rallying around the flag” isn’t just a figure of speech. In one survey after the September 11 attacks, 80 percent of Americans reported that they were displaying it.
    This is why the NFL kneelers are cutting against the American cultural grain, besides picking the wrong target on the merits.

    The American flag isn’t a Confederate monument — indeed the opposite. Our military fights under it. The flag drapes the caskets of the fallen and is folded in a solemn ceremony at military funerals, with practically every movement fraught with religious and patriotic meaning. It is not to be trifled with — unless you intend to insult the country for which it stands.

    When William Driver transferred control of his flag to Union troops, he is reported to have spoken “triumphantly, with tears in his eyes.” So many years later, Old Glory still elicits the same heartfelt sentiment. May it always.
