I hear so many people talking about wanting to open dialogue regarding those who are sitting or taking the knee during the National Anthem. There is no dialogue to be taken. This is blatant disrespect for the blood behind that song. The anthem is more than a song just like the flag is more than a piece of cloth. It represents blood, martyrs, sacrifice and patriots. These are things of which too many self-righteous and often over paid athletes have no concept. These people are not heroes. These people are not modern day patriots. These people are not trend setters. These people are not exercising their First Amendment rights. These people are simply on a tantrum showing disrespect. They want the limelight and have no idea how be behave. I have no respect for them or for their coaches or the teams permitting this behavior. These whiners need to realize that people are fed up with their actions. Now there are snot noses punks in high school football attire mimicking the ‘big boys’. Enough is enough!
If you want to be paid by the public and the taxpayers to build your multimillion dollar stadiums then start respecting this country. I highly doubt that any of these idiots have ever met a Gold Star Family, those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. I am sure they would not give as wooden nickel for their little protest. I wonder if these people ever studies US history. This is not just those who refuse to stand. These are just on the top of the list of the low lifes of disrespect. If people in a wheel chair can ‘stand’ for the anthem then there is no excuse for the athletes. This also goes for all those ‘taking the knee’ and I do not wish to hear about how people take knee to pray. I highly doubt they are showing respect by taking the knee. They just do not want to stand but not be so obvious. I also do not care for the disrespect the Seattle Seahawks showed with their ‘solidarity’ of standing only arm in arm. Let us get real. There is a reason for the hand over heart. That is just part of flag etiquette but too many of these players cannot even spell etiquette.
In my opinion having dialogue with these protesting big babies is equal to having dialogue with those burning down Ferguson or trashing Baltimore. It is right up there with paying ransom to Iran for hostages. There is not play for justifying these behaviors. To have dialogue is to legitimize their behaviors. I do not accept that the respect the military while at the same time protesting this nation. Yes there are things that need to be improved. It is that way in all nations. But if they are that overcome with concern and opposition my main recommendation is to find a nation they are more inclined to accept. Get their butts out to Arlington Cemetery. I dare them to look upon the rows and rows of granite crosses knowing each one of those people had no color, they had no politics, they had no agenda; they just had a love big enough for their country to fill their lives.
I also take personal offense to a repeated mantra of these protests which is against the police. Having brothers who are retired officers and being a volunteer at the local department I have a partial idea of what these people go through on a daily basis. I also personally know that there are some officers who abuse their power. But that is the way with any career regardless if you are a police officer or a ticket taker at the local theater. But I would also recommend that these whining athletes take some time to do a ride along. Get their butts out there in the middle of the night where you have less time than a split second to make a life or death situation. Let them get out there in the back alleys where you only hope you get to go home again at the end of your shift. Let them get out there where you are looking forward to the end of your shift only to find a situation where the end of your shift now is nothing but a passing idea because duty comes before the end of your shift. It is easy to complain about a people of whom you have no idea regarding. The biggest problem is that too many of these coddled babies are too big of a coward to EVER go behind the badge.
Let us stop the pandering. There does not need to be dialogue. These needs to be people to buck up and start showing respect again. The Pledge of Allegiance needs to be brought back into the schools. If they do not want to say the pledge for some off the wall reason they can at least stand up to show respect for those who died to give them the right to not say the pledge. If these athletes want to keep showing disrespect then it is time to stop supporting them. My suggestion to those who want to protest is to put up or shut up. Ether get your hinny out there and make a person difference, and if you want to complain about the police then get behind the badge first, or just pipe down about your little protest because it really does not mean anything to you and you just want attention.
I wonder if any of these multi-millionaire cry baby athletes who are ‘protesting’ the national anthem have ever met a Gold Star Family. A Gold Star Family is a family that had a son or daughter make the ultimate sacrifice for their nation. These people did not die for an Africa America. They did not die for a Mexico America. These people died for the United States of America. As these whinny pampered millionaires who are laughing all the way to the bank are disrespecting the national anthem forget that the anthem is more than a song just like the flag is more than a piece of cloth. It represents the countless lives both living and dead who sacrificed to build and keep this nation. Those self righteous idiots who ‘take the knee’ during the anthem or remain seated say they are protesting injustice. Funny how I do not see any of them coughing up to pay for the education of one of their ‘oppressed youth’. They leave the outcome of those who are seen as ‘oppressed’ to a system that people know is broken and then they complain because people are not receiving care. First of all who declared that it was the government’s job to take care of everyone? When immigrants came over to this nation they knew that there was a great life to be had IF they were willing to work hard. Now people just expect the government to give them this great life and then complain when it is not coming fast enough.
You listen to these whinnying over paid ball chasers talk and you would think that the only poor people are black kids living in the inner city. I could not believe the stupidity of Sander’s statement as to how white people could not be poor. Tell that to some of those kids in Appalachia. Tell that to the kids of all colors who go to bed hungry. I would like to ask these ‘well educated’ athletes who seem to know so much about the politico-economical situation of our nation who if there is so much racial discrimination why there are more programs for minorities than there are for ‘white’ kids? I think that a liberal’s head would explode if anyone ever formed the American White-Kid College Fund.
Now I am not saying that America does not have things they need to work on or to correct. But we will never get there as long as there are Mexican-Americans, African-Americans or other Etc.-Americans. When we figure out that we are all in this together then and only then will we figure out the answers. Our ancestors who came here to Ellis Island had a better idea of things than we do at this present time. They knew that they were coming to a new land. That meant that if they wanted the laws, regulations, and statues of their former homeland then they should have stayed home. They knew that if they wanted to keep with all the ways of the old life then there was really no reason to come to the new world. They came to America to become Americans. It was that united America that fought and won two world wars going on in two different theaters at the same time. They came here and they learned the language of the new land. They did not expect anything special because they were foreign. They knew they would have to work harder because they were new. They also knew they could, and did, become anything they desired. If there is anything that prohibits this from being a reality during the present age it is because the governmental agencies and programs have removed the requirement to work hard to succeed. Now people can be lazy and still have the life style normally only available to those who work hard. The problem is that people become dependent upon a fickle government. Keep in mind there is a major difference between a government and a nation.
These people who are saying they are supporting Black Lives Matter needs to ask the simple question: If the Black Lives Matter people really cared about black lives why they are not protesting the black on black murders in Chicago? If they really cared about black lives why they are not in Louisiana helping with flood victims. And if they really cared about equality why they chose the name ‘Black Lives’ instead of ‘All Lives’. The hypocrisy in this group as well as those athletes who support it runs so deep it is sickening. These people are not interested in the lives of others nearly as much as they are interested in an opportunity to protest, riot, make a name for themselves or destroy. It is time people started being real and gave up excuses for their behavior. Those people who are burning down cities are not doing it because they are oppressed. They are doing it because they want to destroy. But as long as people are willing to accept the spoon fed propaganda of our liberals in media and government then they will continue not to think independently and keep spouting the same old rhetoric.
If people really wanted to make a statement about injustice then actually do something about injustice and not a race. If they wanted to actually do something to help the poor, then help the poor and not focus upon a race. These ding dongs need to stop for a moment and realize that they are not going to help the fight against racism by promoting racism. This is why their argument falls apart. They are not interesting in helping a social issue. All these people want is the publicity and their ‘moment in the sun’. But they seem too stupid to realize that their ‘moment in the sun’ only is casting darkness upon the nation.
George Soros has apparently made the statement that Trump will win the popular vote and Hillary will win the Electoral College. Let’s just pause for a moment and think about something. It has been proven through emails which have been hacked that Hillary rigged the primaries against Sanders so she would win. It has been proven that there was voter fraud during the last major election. It has been proven that the machines are easily rigged to switch votes and even the person who wrote the codes has come out and said that he was requested by a member of the Democrat Party to create the codes. He created them believing that it was to show how to write codes to secure voting integrity after they saw how to created codes to corrupt voting integrity. It has been proven that Hillary and her team has lied repeatedly to Congress, the FBI and to the American people. What if Hillary wins the Electoral College by manipulation? What are we going to do?
Americans will be left with a critical choice. If she wins the Electoral College then by the Constitution and a rather antiquated election system of the Electoral College she would technically be our President. But we also know that she is going to do everything in her power to dismantle the Constitution and bring in hundreds of thousands of ‘refugees’ in to this country who could not possibly be vetted regarding terrorism. Our country under Hillary Clinton has truly no option but to burn to the ground under Islamic terrorists because they have made it clear that they will attack America. Hillary Clinton would have given them an open door to do whatever they wish and probably with governmental protections. If Trump wins the popular votes, and especially if he wins a strong part of the popular vote, he would have been elected President by the voice of the people. People need to take this possibility seriously because it has happened in some states as pertaining to a Governor vote. In Washington State a governor was elected who lost the majority of the state but won the election because of winning two key counties.
Our government is corrupt. This is so commonly accepted as fact that it is even the butt of many jokes. I just wish it was more of a laughing matter and not such a threat to our way of life. For those who say that winning the ‘election’ is all that matters needs to remember that Adolf Hitler also was the legally elected leader of Germany. Is it right to accept a corrupt leader simply because they are ‘elected’? By all reasonable and acceptable lines of judgment Hillary Clinton should have been arrested by now. When the FBI director Comey finished his discourse by concluding that Hillary Clinton was basically just incompetent in her handling of confidential and classified information, he nullified the law. As the Attorney General Lynch has refused to take any steps in investigate the Clinton Foundation she also has nullified the rule of law and is guilty of protecting a potential felon. Our system has become so corrupt with protectionism that the old Chicago Mafia would even be amazed. That which once was on a local level has now been welcomed with open arms to the highest level of government. So, we go back to the original question of ‘what do we do’ as a nation?
I do not want violence. I do not want strife in our country. I also know that things have been permitted to go on too long and now we are looking at a giant snowball that is about to hit. Our rule of law has become so loose as it applies to an elite few that we have lost the rule of law. There have been those who have sought to create this position in which we now find ourselves. I do not believe that even they have the least of an idea what is about to happen. They have worked hard to create a liberal creature to do their political bidding only the creature has been turning into a monster. Just as in the story of Frankenstein’s monster, the creature is about to turn upon its creators in destruction.
We the people of the United States demand to establish a class action suit against the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice. We have grown up believing that there was one law to be followed and to be feared. There have been many people who fear the power of both of these agencies. We have been witness to people who have had their lives ruined by being investigated by these agencies although they have not been guilty of any crime. From the accused bomber of the Atlanta Olympic to Officer Darrell Watson who was investigated by the Department of Justice for simply doing his job and trying to protect his own life. Through recent events it is clear that there is not one law for all people. Information pertaining to the Hillary Clinton investigation and the reveal by the director of the FBI show clear and evident evidence that Hillary Clinton gave one set of answers to Congress, another set of answers to the FBI while the reality was a completely different set of answers. Evidence was destroyed as proven by statements that cell phones and other pieces of equipment were beaten with a hammer. Other items were destroyed through being burned. The FBI laid out multiple incidences there Hillary Clinton had committed actions equating to having committed a federal crime. In the face of mounting evidence to the commission of a crime the FBI and the Department of Justice refused to press any charges against Hillary Clinton. There continues to be information being revealed of the misuse of confidential information and a purposeful and total disregard for legal statutes all the time the being no consequences for these actions.
These actions by the FBI and the Department of Justice are having dire effect upon the general public. What has kept America safe has been the rule of law which was supposed to be applied universally. The rule of law has been that which has separated the United States of America from other countries where there is a lack of legal statues and lawful behavior. Within the past few months it has been clear that the rule of law has broken down in regards to being applied universally. This disregard for the rule of law by those invested with duties to protect the dignity of the rule of law has eroded all confidence of the general population which is essential for a secure society. This represents a violation of the civil rights of the general population. The general population has a right to be free of unnecessary fear. People of the United States are insured the rights of freedom of life, liberty and the pursuit of personal happiness. Now that the integrity of the rule of law has been violated and broken the fibers of a safe society have been torn.
The very essence of our nation has been that all men are created equal. As the rule of law is now broken, this essence of our nation is denied and nullified. Countless Americans have fought, suffered, died or lived with the effects of making extreme sacrifices in an effort to protect the core of our nation and society. The actions of the FBI and the Department of Justice shows complete and total disregard for the citizenry of this nation. The actions of the FBI and the Department of Justice have created an irreparable tear in the fabric of this country. For these reasons the People of the United States should be allowed to file a class action suit against the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice.
It is time to be honest and no longer politically correct. Whether we want to admit it or not people have stereotypes for different races. The classic stereotype for a black person is lazy, troublesome, avoiding fatherly responsibilities and basically no good. Now before I get lynched for stating this, I know firsthand that there are many who are insulted by this stereotype and are nothing like it. I have black relatives (I cannot say African American because they have never traced their background to Africa). I have some relatives who are able to trace their lines back to slaves and probably have slaves in my direct lineage since we have been here since before the 1700’s and are also Native American and there were many who intermarried. I also remember an elderly black lady who used to work for my parents when I was just a kid. Her mother or grandmother was a nanny and a slave. Each generation had a goal of bettering the next and this lady, her name was Annie Brown in East Chicago Ind, had the goal of her daughter going to college. I have no doubt that this was accomplished.
The Black Lives Matter movement which is supposed to promote the betterment of the black community and their treatment has done nothing to counter the stereotypical image of a black person. They have done nothing to counter the black on black murders in Chicago. They have done nothing to ease the suffering of those in black communities caught in the floods. They have done nothing to merit any positive considerations from any race. All they have done is promote the image of the radical black person who has not regard for anything, wants a handout and is ungrateful when people try and help their lot in life. The majority of black people in this country should be infuriated at the BLM movement. Obama has also done nothing to promote positive changes in the black community and has instead encouraged the radicals who burned down Ferguson and Baltimore. He has done nothing but stokes the fires of hatred between the radical blacks and the police and has the blood of many police of all races dripping from his hands. He is a disgrace not only to Americans in general but to the black community specially. It is ironic how the radical blacks sing the praised of the Democrat party when even Malcolm X said how they where stupid to follow the deceitful leadership of the Democrats and were should be ashamed of themselves and black people. The BLM sing the praised of the Democrats while the Democrats sing the praised of Planned Parenthood, an organization formed by a woman who saw black people as weeds which should be exterminated.
I do not understand why more black people do not come out against BLM. They are an insult to any intelligent black person who is willing to understand the truth of the matters. I have no problem with a black person who chooses to be a Democrat but I do have a problem with anyone who promotes something totally contrary to everything in which they say they believe and hold dear. It is not turning their backs on their ‘race’ or ‘people’ to speak out against BLM. I am proud to be of Indian heritage and lineage. But being of this lineage I also have a strong connection with the land and nature. Therefore I am infuriated as I watch some fellow Native Americans kill a deer and only take the choice cuts of meat. There is supposed to be a respect for the kill and to use every part of the kill. I also oppose those tribes who scream about their rights to so much shellfish yet pollute the very waters they seek to harvest with human sewage.
The BLM people have taken the police departments as their scapegoat. In many of these communities the police risk their lives merely to drive through because the leadership and adults have abandoned their duties. Men have become cowards running from their responsibilities to lead while teenage girls think it cute to get pregnant by someone who is going to run like a scalded dog the minute the pee stick shows positive. The expected leaders of these communities expect the police to defuse explosive situations which the communities themselves have created and then blame the police when bad things happen or the situation do not resolve in an expected manner. The BLM voice protest against the police while at the same time being too cowardly to take charge of their own problems. This type of behavior should be an insult to every hard working responsible member of the black community. But as long as the supporters of the BLM insist on living in an imaginary past of abuse and that the world owes them a living the black communities will never advance. Every society has experienced slavery. The greatest hypocrisy is any and every member of the BLM movement who stand arm in arm with Islam because Islam still believes in slavery and buys and sells human being to this present day. BLM is not opposed to slavery. BLM is opposed to responsibility.
