Take a knee like a slave

Post by David Redszus » Mon Sep 25, 2017 12:02 pm

It is incredible to watch rich, free, grown men take a knee of disrespect at the orders of their handlers.
And not even know why. It is further amazing to see the total stupidity of under-educated players and their rabid fans as they try to defend something they do not understand.

These fools claim to be protesting "racial discrimination", yet none of these black millionaires can explain how a corrupt system could (or would) reward them so greatly. Neither can these weak minds point to true examples of racial discrimination in the US. Put aside the "civil rights" folklore and examine hard facts; reality is far different than the myths.

Trump is right (again). They should all be fired, not for expressing free speech (hateful though it may be), but for a total disrespect for a country and its people that gave them their wealth and fame.

Ask yourself how many blacks died during the civil war fighting against slavery? How many white Americans died for their cause? White privilege my ass, white Americans paid the price of black freedom and that fact should never be forgotten.

Since the emancipation of black slaves in the US over 150 years ago, blacks have failed to assimilate into US society. The indicators are very plentiful and abundant; lack of two parent families, number of children out of wedlock, high employment, low educational attainment, high criminality, low social contribution and many other indicators. They have allowed themselves to become not just second class citizens, but third or fourth class residents. Every other ethnic group exceeds their performance.

New black arrivals from Africa, India, and the West Indies, quickly surpass native black Americans with respect to assimilation and economic acceptance. All that our home grown blacks can claim is victimhood and phony discrimination.

The claim of racism in the US is the mark of the true coward.

Blaming someone else for your own failure sounds just like Hillary, Obama, BLM, Antifa and the Democraps.

In a few short years football will only be a thing from the past. The snowflakes have been attacking football for a while citing CTE, brain injuries and concussions. Now, the idiot players are turning real, money spending fans against them. Racism???? The NFL is 70% black. The minimum salary is $450,000 per year. How many of these poor oppressed players could earn that much without football? How many could earn 1/10th that much?

All this talk about Cape-r-nick not being hired because he's an "activist". He opted out of a multi-million dollar contract for 2017 to become a free agent. That's just not smart, regardless of his skin color.
I used to be a people person, but people ruined it.

You have argued countless times that the civil war had little or nothing to do with slavery.....good to see you've seen the error in your assertion.

The entire NFL kneeling over the weekend had nothing to do with respect or disrestect for the country. It was a statement agaist the hate Rump stands for. It's kind of funny in a twisted way that Rump will end bring responsible for helping stamp out this kind of hate.....by making it obvious just how pervasive it really is.

Wrong again. I maintain that the PRIMARY reason for the civil war was not over slavery as does every academic historian. That does not detract from the fact that hundreds of thousand of whites died but blacks did not.

Wrong again. The entire NFL did not take a knee. Just a few (200) idiots out 1696 players chose to disrespect our country. The fans will pass judgement on these bozos.

You cannot show any evidence whatsoever regarding Trump racial hatred, none. The appearance of racial division is a result of Obama, not Trump. If you think the human emotion of hate can be stamped out by government action, get started with BLM, Atifa and the Democrap party.

No, its down to a small handful of bigots and racists who continue to arrgue that.....most everyone else believe that what the people at the time wrote in their letters and statements.


"Pulitzer Prize-winning author James McPherson writes that, "The Civil War started because of uncompromising differences between the free and slave states over the power of the national government to prohibit slavery in the territories that had not yet become ..."

None? Never? Not ever the time he entered into a consent decree over racisy discrimination?

....that was just good business though so it doesn't count right?

Or how about the "on many sides" comment that congress is considering censuring him for?.....oh wait that is just people being mean to him right?

He's a worthless pos.

You're right though, it always not all, it was virtually all

"But from London to Los Angeles, virtually all NFL players on the sidelines before kickoff of Sunday’s slate of 14 games locked arms with each other in response to President Trump’s three-day campaign demanding that team owners “fire or suspend” players who kneel during the national anthem and calling on fans to boycott games if the form of protest continued."

Not coming onto the field for the tnational anthem is a violation of nfl rules....but no action will be taken. The league seems much more upset with Rump's statements than the players reaction.

It's a well timed distraction. Cbo score will come out this afternoon which will all but guarantee failure if yet another health care bill attempt. Trump doesn't want you talking about that...

Here we go again. When you have no facts or hard data, you simply resort to calling people bigots and racists. Opinions are far different than hard facts and what most people believe is and has been wrong.
"Pulitzer Prize-winning author James McPherson writes that, "The Civil War started because of uncompromising differences between the free and slave states over the power of the national government to prohibit slavery in the territories that had not yet become ..."
That is some writers opinion, nothing more. Did the national government have the right to dictate policy to states regarding their internal matters? No it did not. It obtained that right by use of force.

Consent agreements are entered because they are a cheaper solution than legal expense.
Or how about the "on many sides" comment that congress is considering censuring him for?.....oh wait that is just people being mean to him right?
More sheer nonsense driven by Democrap resentment at being such pathetic losers.
"But from London to Los Angeles, virtually all NFL players on the sidelines before kickoff of Sunday’s slate of 14 games locked arms with each other in response to President Trump’s three-day campaign demanding that team owners “fire or suspend” players who kneel during the national anthem and calling on fans to boycott games if the form of protest continued."
Trump is right. A league that is 70% black rich men should not bite the hand that feeds them.
Attendance is down as is TV viewership and I hope it continues to fall.

First you want to cite experts, then you want to discount them.....i see......

To your misunderstanding of federal law, yes the federal government most certainly had the right to ensure the us constitution is obeyed at all times in all states.

"All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

You are right..who gives a flying fuuk about pro football players protesting something they don't even understand.
The real issue is the continuation of racist divisiveness brought by BLM, Antifa and the racist Democraps.

It seems when you have no facts and are really dumb, you play the race card, as Obama has done.

Check your sources.

The suit named only the Trump business. The settlement did not contain an admission of guilt, but did require Trump to accept the facts and punishment and probe that they had made significant changes to exit the consent decree.......that is how consent decrees work, you are given a choice to be convicted and have to make changed or make the changes and agree to monitoring and save youself a conviction and the civil liability that comes with it, but one way or the other you are going to change your behavior.
