Black Conservatives Say Players Kneel and Protest at Their Peril

Press Release from the National Center for Public Policy Research:

NFL’s Indulgence of Radical Politics Sends Divisive Message, Drives Away Fans

Washington, DC –  With the high likelihood of continued instances of professional football players “taking a knee” while the National Anthem is played during this week’s NFL games, members of the Project 21 black leadership network are warning that continued protests lacking clear intentions are hurting the sport’s reputation as well as the well-being of its sponsors.

While fans who have been polled by the media do not necessarily want players fired over their protests, overwhelming majorities want professional athletes to stand respectfullyduring the playing of the National Anthem. Past protests have been cited as a key factorin fans no longer watching games.

In a commentary published on the Fox News Channel website, Project 21 Co-ChairmanStacy Washington wrote that millionaire athletes protesting without a specific goal are testing the dwindling patience of the American people. 

“The NFL has a choice to make, and it’s an easy one: political activism or sports. The American people will only tolerate one of those so they had best choose wisely,” said Washington, a syndicated talk radio host on the American Family Radio and Urban Family Talk networks and U.S. Air Force veteran who served in an honor guard unit at military funerals. “There are ways to sway a community; defiling a national symbol associated with honor, service, sacrifice and bravery isn’t one of them. If the NFL continues to indulge the players, declining ratings and lower attendance at games will become the norm. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the team owners must man up: choose the fans by ending the protests.”

Anger over the players’ protests has trickled down to other businesses that make money through their affiliation with the NFL. Fans are reportedly buying less team merchandiseand not going to games (and thus not buying concessions). Bars are refusing to broadcastgames. And, in a move that could be costly to the NFL, DirecTV has let some customers cancel their premium “Sunday Ticket” game packages. Sponsor boycotts are also being organized.

“We live in a free country where people have a right to free speech. Having said that, there’s a responsibility to use it wisely,” said Project 21 member Darryn “Dutch” Martin, a former federal diplomatic official and motivational speaker. “I believe Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players have a right to kneel when the National Anthem is played. But the flip-side to this coin is that fans don’t have a duty to spend their hard-earned money on the NFL if they feel our country is being disrespected in any way – even by a peaceful protest such as kneeling during the National Anthem. Furthermore, team owners who are fully aware of the financial ramifications shouldn’t be obligated to hire players such as Kaepernick. There’s a time and a place for everything. Professional sports should be a politics-free affair.”

Project 21 member Nadra Enzi, a community anti-crime activist in New Orleans, is critical of the anti-law enforcement sentiments that many protesting players are embracing: “I can’t take a knee to take up a cause that gives perverted honor to mostly career criminals who lost their final fight with the police. Doing do steps on the dignity of urban crime victims and the officers who have been killed in the line of duty in the inner city.”

“We need civil discourse,” said Project 21 member Jerome Danner, host of the “Thinking It Through” podcast. “It is my utmost desire that our most famous athletes and Commander-in-Chief would set an example by engaging in thoughtful conversation. Rather than impulsively stating our opinions about emotional issues, careful introspection should be taken and considerate perspectives shared. Protests are not necessarily wrong, and neither is having an opinion about them. To move forward as a unified nation, however, we should proceed in a thoughtful and courteous manner uncharacteristic of the times.”

Where Deflated Balls Really Should Be Put

Let me get this straight. This is YOUR America – land of the brave, the free and what else? So I want to make sure I understand this because obviously nobody else does.

We have a president who lies everyday and loves doing it. He disrespects the constitution and everyday, his little puppet-stringed hands take away my rights and does all he can to destroy even my God-given rights. He has robbed, killed, deceived, murdered and wasted billions of dollars that aren’t his.

We have a former secretary of state, under this same lying president, who has lied, cheated and stole and was responsible for killings and the murder of innocent people. She is part of taking bribes from foreign investors for her husband and then destroys all her evidence so she won’t get caught.

In short, the United States of America is probably the most corrupt it has ever been and spiraling to hell in short order.

And what is the lead headline today? Tom Brady! Demands that he be fired, stripped of his title. Suspended for an entire season, etc. Why? Because the NFL report stated that “PROBABLY” he was aware that a couple of managers were messing with air pressures in footballs. No real proof – just that they think it is “probable.” Nice!

PROBABLY

Last time I checked, at least before the U.S. of A. became a slave state, run by a bunch of brainwashed idiots, pimping for the Vatican, the ruling establishment in this world of hate, “Probably” was not sufficient grounds to destroy a person.

The hypocrites on Fox News, who collectively might have enough brain power to know one should get in out of the rain, while carrying on about free speech and how people should have a right to free speech and be able to draw cartoons of Mohammed, turned to the next story wishing to crucify a man, whom it was obvious from the beginning, hated Tom Brady. What superficial, ignorant, hypocrites. They hate him out of jealousy, I would guess. What other reason is there? Well, other than one has a husband who is a back-up quarterback on….whose team? Another goes through life angry because he really wants to be a sports announcer and now we see why he isn’t one. And the third member is a Jets and Giants fan. Why didn’t these same mental midgets defend Tom Brady’s right to be held innocent until proven guilty. Where does it say, guilty, guilty, guilty, because he PROBABLY did it.

My God! Another example of the sewer in which this fake republic has opted to go live in.

I couldn’t care less about Tom Brady and the Patriots or any other football team. As a matter of fact, I don’t care an iota about any professional sports team or anybody who participates on those teams. This is about a person’s right. It’s about justice.

A 243-page report of the NFL’s investigation concludes that “PROBABLY” cheating occurred. Let’s hang the man by his “BALLS” that nobody can prove anything was done to them.

Meanwhile, the real crooks, the murderers, the thieves in Washington and the White House, walk free because they know they are protected and above the laws levied on us slaves. These have ruled over us for two centuries and there’s no end in sight. The future looks worse.

The Media should go straight to hell, right behind the NFL for issuing such nonsense!

I won’t be watching anymore NFL games or Fox News.
