STORY ABOUT THE NFL – HOW IMPORTANT IS IT?

Throughout social media, people are questioning the news media’s covering of the NFL Story regarding multiple players refusing to stand while the National Anthem is played before football games. The coverage has been almost non-stop, and as one would expect, with the exception of Fox News and One America News, the media is taking the side that it’s perfectly okay to kneel for the National Anthem in protest of a cruel United States of America with a history of slavery and oppression of minorities.

When President Trump came out of Friday night, September 22, at a rally in Huntsville, Alabama, advising NFL team owners that they should fire “those SOBs who refuse to stand for the anthem,” a widespread movement swept among the players to kneel when the anthem was played.

Many folks are now boycotting the NFL and as you can imagine, there have been “opinions galore” out there. For the record, here’s mine. I blame the owners for allowing this kerfuffle to escalate to the extent it has. These players signed contracts with their respective teams, and when you sign a contract of employment, no matter what you position is, you agree to do what your employer tells you to do. The owners could have told the players, “stand for the National Anthem or be fired.” The end! But they didn’t. They wimped out.

While, of course, the players are to be held accountable for their actions and will certainly suffer repercussions, they are young men, many of them under the age of twenty-five. And they’re millionaires to boot. Groomed since childhood to be football stars, they held press conferences while in high school to announce the college they had chosen. Once they got on campus, they became the most popular guys on campus. In some states, such as my own, they became the most important people in the state, being loved, adored, and looked up to by many. After being drafted and signing multi-million-dollar contracts, they played football, and continued to be everyone’s darling. Pretty heady stuff.

Playing for an NFL team is hard work. Practices are grueling and pressure is never ending. These players are not your average twenty-four-year-old college graduates who are trying to “make it” in fields such as accounting, computer science, teaching, banking, etc. Do they watch the news, do they regularly visit news websites? Probably not. Majority of these players are black and many came from poor families. Furthermore, when someone tells them that the United States of America is a cruel racist country, and that’s why there are so many people living under the poverty line, many of them minorities, these players want to be seen as doing something good, plus they’re young and idealistic. They also want to fit in, to be popular with their peers. Thus, I put more of the blame on the owners and NFL management for allowing this to happen.  Like Bill O’Reilly said last night, it’s “pack mentality.” Also, many are not mature enough to think through what their actions might lead to down the road.

Having said all of the above, I’m also reading articles where many folks are complaining, saying that we have much more important stuff to cover and obsess on instead of football; things such as the damages and continued suffering of those affected by the recent hurricanes, plus “Little Rocket Man” on the other side of the world threatening to annihilate all of us. And let’s not forget the terrorist attack on a small church in Antioch, Tennessee where a gunman from the Sudan killed a woman church-goer in the parking lot and injured others, shooting until he was subdued by another church-goer with a carry permit and a gun. The mainstream media would not have covered the church shooting story anyway, because a black Islamic terrorist shooting at, killing and injuring white Christians, particularly southern white Christians is just not newsworthy, nor did it trigger widespread riots, looting, and allegations of police brutality.

I beg to differ with those who think the NFL story is immaterial in the wake of what else is taking place in the country and in the world.

The NFL and sports in general have always been large parts of our culture where all people regardless of financial status, social status, religion, ethnicity, ideology, etc. could come together for fun, and fellowship. The ultra-liberal sitting next to you in the stands wants the same thing as you want…for your team to win. As the United States of America becomes more polarized with respect to how we should govern ourselves now and in the future, the sports culture, where historically politics didn’t exist, has become increasingly important as a refuge and a uniting mechanism.

As I watched the left go nuclear at the president’s comments, calling him a racist (the media calling the president a racist…what else is new), when he didn’t even mention race or skin color in his remarks, followed by Roger Goodell’s actions and the team owners’ actions, it became all too apparent that this whole melee was being fueled by the left with its systematic methodologies to destroy the United States of America by vaporizing its history, including the constitution, and destroying its culture, institution by institution.

The organizers of the leftist movement to annihilate the United State of America, have now seen an opportunity to break up one of the nation’s cultural bastions, the National Football League. There have been calls for boycotting, not just the games, but boycotting NFL sponsors. And TV ratings have been down.  If the fans lose interest, income will go down, the owners will suffer, and eventually the players will suffer, not to mention all the people who work for the NFL and NFL teams in various capacities from grounds keepers, secretaries, accountants, etc. This could very well lead to a recession, especially if the left continues to attack and destroy other institutions.

Like Bill O’Reilly said last night on Hannity, left not only wants to destroy President Trump, they want to destroy his supporters, and they want to destroy the United States of America and build it back up according to their specifications, starting with a new constitution, the abolishment of the electoral college, the abolishment the three branches of government and the system of checks and balances. And who can predict what else. It’s “1984,” folks.

On Hannity last night, I noticed a slight apprehension that pervaded the Bill O’Reilly segment. Sean and Bill were both critical of the main stream media reiterating that it was as corrupt as it’s ever been. With what our young people are being taught in the public schools, or not being taught in the public schools, they have no knowledge of this country and its history, except that America has allowed the institution of slavery and continues to oppress minorities. Furthermore, since the end of the cold war, they have not been taught or nor have they seen the evils of communism and the effects of socialism. Thus, many millennials think communism and socialism are good philosophies as compared to the evils of capitalism in which we now live under.

How can this happen when the Republicans have the house, the Senate, and the presidency? I’ll tell you how, the far left has the press, a press that lives to denigrate President Trump every day, a press that promotes the lies, the hatred, the bigotry and the hypocrisy emanating from the left. If the only news that you watch are snippets of the network news or a few minutes of CNN or MSNBC, all you hear is “Russia, Russia, Russia,” Trump’s a racist, Trump’s a misogynist, Trump’s a homophobe, all Trump cares about are his wealthy friends, his supporters are ignorant, especially those southern white conservative Christians.

With a corrupt media, that promotes the left and lies about the right.  a large segment of the population that knows nothing about the cold war and the evils of communism, and conservatives who are scared of their own shadows who tremble at the thought of being called a racist, we can easily lose this nation. This is no laughing matter.

ANTI-TRUMP WOMEN MARCHERS

While many scoff at social media, I must admit that I get substantial portions of my material from social media, particularly Facebook. After writing for almost three years, I have become familiar with the political websites, both right leaning, and left leaning and have a list of those on which I can depend most of the time.

Yesterday, I stumbled upon a video from Liz Wheeler on “Tipping Point” from One America News. Ms. Wheeler was being snarky when it came to the anti-trump women marchers and their strike on March 8. To those women, she said let’s teach our girls that it’s okay to skip work and ditch your responsibilities when something connected with the job, such as salary, doesn’t suit you.

The organizers of “the strike” encouraged women to skip work, wear red, refuse to shop, etc. thinking the nation’s economy would grind to a halt because they, the anti-trump women marchers were irreplaceable.

Those in the labor force generally are allowed to take time off from work for various reasons such as vacations, sickness, emergencies, etc., with pay and without fear of being fired. The exception is contractors who lose pay when they are absent from work. Long term, experienced contractors most always build in anticipated time off into the rate they request, and negotiations often take place.

I certainly believe in freedom of speech, which includes the right to protest. If a woman wants to take strike day off, whether it’s to attend a protest or to sit around the house or apartment and do nothing, she, or he, has that right, but should also have time built up in the form of vacation, paid absence, personal leave, etc. in order to receive pay for the day. Or, in certain circumstances, she might be willing to take the day without pay. Plus, and this is important, she must make arrangement to take the day off with her employer. It’s best to schedule a day off ahead of time because some companies do penalize for unplanned absences. Whatever you do, don’t just not show up for work. You can be terminated for that and clauses stating such are in most employment contracts.

Ms. Wheeler further indicated that Wednesday’s strike was for the rich women only, those who could afford to take off work such as business owners and CEOs. This strike also only appeared to be for women who had enough time off built up at their jobs that they could take a day’s vacation and still have plenty time off for other things.

In February, we had a “day without immigrants” strike, and according to sources, including Ms. Wheeler, 100 immigrants were fired from their jobs because they didn’t show up for work. And this is very sad. Were these immigrants who don’t speak or understand English all that well? Were these immigrants who are still getting used to the customs and practices of the American culture, and maybe didn’t realize that failing to show up for work could get them fired? And they might not have cared either. We don’t know. But for those who may have listened to the Democrat politicians telling them that their rights are being violated and that the Trump administration and Republicans hate them, followed the lead of those Democrat politicians when they said don’t show up for work, and lost their jobs and their livelihood, the Democrats are 100 percent to blame. Hear me, Democrats, liberals, progressives, etc. You are to blame!

Furthermore, if any women who followed the lead of these awful anti-Trump women marchers, you are 100 percent to blame also. You and only you. I hope you’re proud of yourselves.

Ms. Wheeler went on to ask these awful women just what rights had been taken away from them by the Trump administration that they had before President Trump took office. If any of you who are reading this are anti-Trump women marchers, send me a reply, I’d really like to know what rights you have lost. Ms. Wheeler then asked the anti-Trump women marchers if they had ever been denied a job because they were women, and reminded the women that this has been illegal since 1963. Have any of you not been allowed to attend a class because you’re a female?

All President Donald Trump is threatening to do is take away your free birth control which costs about $10.00 per month. And you’re acting like whiny brats about it.

Ms. Wheeler pointed out that these anti-Trump women marchers were not standing up for the women in Iraq, Iran, Syria, Pakistan, Yemen, the Sudan, etc. where women are oppressed, killed, raped, and mutilated. Neither have these anti-Trump women marchers stood up for women who were burned to death in metal cages by ISIS. Of course, these women wouldn’t dare stand up for women business owners who lost everything because their local governments didn’t approve of their Christian faith. And, I think it goes without saying that these horrible women would never stand with women who choose to own guns to protect them from sexual and other types of assault.

These anti-Trump women marchers are nothing but vindictive, only standing up for women who agree with them. Those who disagree with them, be damned. You march for the women who want the government a hand out of free birth control pills, just like animals who can’t control their behavior because hormones rule.

According to Ms. Wheeler, and I agree with her 100 percent, the anti-Trump women marchers think they’re irreplaceable to the extent that the United States economy would collapse because they chose to do nothing or attend a protest for one day. Well, let me tell you disgusting women something. Your little strike didn’t exactly cause the U.S. economy to collapse. If fact, your little strike did nothing except maybe cause hardship to some lower income women who followed your lead. If any women lost their jobs because they thought it was okay to just not show up for work, it’s 100 percent your fault and that of the Democrat party.

And while I’m listing the women who are in danger that you’re not representing, let me list one last group: Those 29 or so million girls who never had the right to exercise their freedoms. Never received life, liberty, or the pursuit of happiness.

One of the ways the anti-trump women marchers used to identify themselves on March 8 was to wear red. Red is my favorite color because red is one of the colors of my school, the University of Alabama, the Crimson Tide. Red means bold and winning. You anti-Trump women marchers are anything but. You’re an embarrassment and turned International Women’s Day, what could have been a fun day to do lunch and other things, into something bad.

You anti-Trump women marchers have set good and decent women back a generation. All you can do is put on your imbecilic vagina hats and dress up like crotches, demanding free birth control. But the rest of us women are strong and invincible. We’ll regain our rightful places quickly in spite of what you are doing to destroy us.
