Veterans’ Groups Blast NFL Players For Disrespecting The American Flag

Two organizations, the Veterans of Foreign Wars and The American Legion, are openly criticizing National Football League (NFL) players for protesting the American flag by kneeling during the national anthem.

NFL players making use of sports events to disrespect the American flag is unacceptable, VFW’s national commander Keith Harman, a Vietnam combat veteran, said in a statement Monday.

  • It’s time to start ignoring these unpatriotic, overpaid jack-offs. They are so not worth mentioning.

    • Killing the goose that lays the golden egg won’t help blacks.

      Can they spell F.O.O.L.S?

      • Can they?

        No.

        after their 5 year arc they will drift back into whatever they did well before the sports scholarship.

          Probably not, if their brains have been scrambled by repeated head injuries.

            could you really tell the difference?

      • DavidinNorthBurnaby

        Probably not, if they’ve been to State schools.

          only in the plural form..

  • tom_billesley

    Remember when the national anthem was played when television shut down around midnight, and in movie theatres after the last house?

    • Icebow

      Yes.

        I loved that indian movie that came on after.

            …Chief Test Pattern…

          • ntt1

            its from an old Cheech and ,Chong where over the electronic tone of the black and white Indian head test pattern “dave” says he is watching some boring western.

        • DavidinNorthBurnaby

          A bit thin on plot and character development. Sort of like Seinfeld in that way.

    • Norman_In_New_York

      Back then in the States, it was preceded by “Sermonette.”

  • Icebow

    ‘Football’. What a hoot!

  • Martin B

    Post an Army sniper at each game, with instructions to take out any kneelers permanently. That’ll fix ’em.

    • ntt1

      just random sniping would be fun,imagine the new layer that sudden death would bring, it would intensify the game experience.

    • Just kneecap ’em.

    If nothing else this might make taxpayers take notice of the huge rip off that stadium building and maintenance perpetuates on your dime.Stadiums cannot be built using private funds, the return is nonexistent so the owners get you and i to pay for what is essentially a romper room for millionaires.
    tax funds need to be withdrawn from this and the other tax supported revolution that is happening in the liberal arts universities. We are forced to give tax monies to an effete group of irrevocably non productive grads and faculty that actively seek to destroy the society that pays for them.

    • Norman_In_New_York

      Owners used the threat of franchise removal to blackmail governments into these giveaways.

      • ntt1

        but the straw man is that the franchise ,while immensely profitable to players and owners is a dead loss to tax payers who are also on the hook for upgrades and upkeep.

    Basically , these fatherless Black millionaires are calling all of the American black men that died in WW2 and Korea a bunch of oppressors, killers and dumb Nig**^^rs .
    But ooooh the hypocrisy as these same black millionaires choose to live in safe White areas .
    How quick blacks turn on each other.

    btw
    Where was the msm and or CBC when Burnie Sanders did an interview and told the Host that he’d tax all of these black Millionaire in the NBA,NFL and MLB at least 80% ( maybe 90% ) to pay their fair share .

    Maybe Michelle Obama can make a video with her sign
    #bring back our football

  • Thinking From First Principles

    1) It”s a free market so take your purchases and viewing elsewhere. Everyone making money from the NFL will all have to notice that.
    2) Oppose any and all public subsidies for the NFL. No stadiums, no tax breaks, no transportation projects.
    Think about it – why should the taxpayers pay a cent toward a stadium for a team paying a player, in some cases, $100M or more? The NFL is sports entertainment. Let the market of people who feel entertained pay for their entertainment, and leave the rest of us out of it. Nobody expects the taxpayer to subsidize The Big Bang Theory on TV, or Bruce Springsteen on CD, or Stephen King writing a book. The same should be true for every form of sports entertainment.
