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.
