President revisits anthem issue

AP

Even when the NFL isn’t bringing attention to the anthem issue, the President will continue to talk about it.

That’s what he did on Friday morning. Asked by FOX News Channel whether any players have accepted the President’s offer to consider whether any people who have been treated unfairly by the justice system should be pardoned or have their sentences commuted, the President gave an answer — and more.

No, I haven’t heard,” he said, via Kyle Griffin of MSNBC. “You know, they’re all saying, ‘Oh, it has nothing to do with the flag, it’s the way we’ve been treated.’ In the meantime, they’re making $15 million a year.”

It’s a brilliant sleight of hand, because part of what he said is accurate. The players definitely are saying, “It has nothing to do with the flag.” But the players definitely aren’t saying, “It’s the way we’ve been treated.”

The players inclined to protest during the anthem are promoting a cause far bigger than themselves. They are concerned about the manner in which American citizens making far, far less than $15 million per year (then again, most NFL players are making far, far less than $15 million per year) are treated by police officers and by the justice system.

The President downplays the concerns by pretending that the concerns relate only to multi-multi-millionaires. That’s just not the case, and no fair-minded person can reasonably see it that way.

“Look, I’m all for the athletes,” the President added. “I think it’s great. I love athletics, I love sports. But they shouldn’t get the politics involved.”

The players didn’t get politics involved. The NFL got the flag involved by forcing the players to leave the locker room for the anthem, and the NFL then got politics involved by giving players the right to protest during the anthem.

Then, politics got involved in football when the President said he’d like to see an NFL owner respond to a protesting player by saying, “Get that son of a bitch off the field. He’s fired!”

The President closed with a reiteration of a broad statement that applies not only to the players but to everyone else in the venue.

“When you’re in a stadium and they broadcast that national anthem, you’ve got to stand,” the President said. “And you’ve got to be proud and you’ve got to have your hand up and you’ve got to do everything that’s right.”

We’ll see if the people who are quick to denigrate those who choose to protest are willing and able to adhere to the same standard, and we’ll see whether the President suggests that those folks maybe should live in a different country, instead of the country that ostensibly gives all citizens the freedom not to stand during the anthem.

  1. Mueller and the NY Attorney General are closing in fast.
    This nitwit is just throwing anything he can up against the wall in order to distract from his upcoming impeachment, trial and jail sentence.

  2. He’ll keep talking about it because it’s an election year and it beats doing the work of being president. Meanwhile, as demonstrated on several occasions, he appears not to know all of the words to the anthem himself.

  3. Trump will easily win a 2nd term because not everybody lives in a bubble and only knows what the bought and paid for media says.

    ————————-
    Flag and anthem have existed for quite a while now.. and we’ve been playing the anthem before sporting events for generations. Nothing new or political about playing the anthem before an event. They politicized it by bringing current events into a long standing tradition, and being disrespectful about it. By that logic Florio i guess you take the blame back even further.. “it’s our founders fault for making us have a flag in the first place! “ see how easy and nonsensical that is?

  6. Sorry. Still have a hard believing the social injustices from police when they make up 1% of all shootings yet black on black crime and shootings are a majority. Where is that narrative? Where is the extra attention brought to that? 15 million a year to bring up an issue, which it is, but not the biggest issue plaguing America.

  7. Patriotism to me is not symbolic. It’s a lifestyle. You speak loudest with your wallet. About every 4 or 5th vehicle I see on my morning drive to work made by the same manufacturers that attacked this country. Enslaved POWS and made them work and die in camps (both in Europe and in ASIA) tells me VERY CLEARLY that many Americans are not patriotic. They are emotional but not patriotic.

    I’ll understand if this doesn’t post. I generally kept this thought to myself. But don’t tell me how much of a super patriot you are while you buy for war manufacturers that attacked and enslaved Americans. Don’t tell me how much of a super patriot you are when you pass over American goods for Chinese goods. Standing is easy. To me your not patriotic you are just lazy. This is the easiest form for your public display. That’s why you want it. Because it’s easy.

  8. Oh, it has nothing to do with the flag, it’s the way we’ve been treated.’ In the meantime, they’re making $15 million a year.”

    That statement alone is why he will win another term. Thank you, Mr. Trump for having the stones to say the truth. I love how he tells it exactly how it is and doesn’t care if it offends you. Thank you again, Mr. President!

    ——————————————

    Hey Mike, can you pin point for me the exact time in history the flag and the anthem became about politics because I would really like to know and so would most other Americans.

  10. Just so i can understand. In this country, with the exception of the National Guard, and perhaps the FBI – Policing is done on the local level. It is not a National Issue.

    So demonstrating against the Flag – which is a National issue – is in essence protesting against something that has nothing to do with your cause.

    Don’t want to stand for the Anthem? Fine. You can stay in the locker room. Don’t like issues with the local police? How about working on initiatives to bring the police and the community together. Community based solutions which will bring everyone together.

    Personally, i think that their protests have done nothing to address their concerns, to change the dynamic they are protesting against, and has only served to alienate people.

  11. Doesn’t he have bigger problems to worry about? Report today that his long term “lawyer” (aka scumbag Mafie fixer) is about to flip on him.

  12. “If there is any fixed star in our constitutional constellation, it is that no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or other matters of opinion, or force citizens to confess by word or act or faith therein. … Freedom to differ is not limited to things that do not matter much. That would be a mere shadow of freedom. The test of its substance is the right to differ as to things that touch the heart of the existing order.”
    Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson (1947)

    “Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel.” – Samuel Johnson, 1775

  13. It’s kind of hilarious when people mention how much NFL players make as if money stops you from being persecuted by the police. Ask Sterling Brown how money and fame affected his dealings with law enforcement. On top of that, wouldn’t make sense for players to use their platforms to look out for their loved ones? Their family members aren’t making $15 million, his sentiments are baseless.

  14. Trump has proven the players are doing this without any real critical thinking…they just want to be looked at as “someone who cares”, but not wanting to solve an issue (even though police brutality is largely a myth – doesn’t exist)

    They regency Ferguson MIssouri, Treyvon Martin, etc…all the high profile cases were mis-reported…just media lies so Obama could whine about injustice at the time.

  15. “The players inclined to protest during the anthem are promoting a cause far bigger than themselves. They are concerned about the manner in which American citizens making far, far less than $15 million per year (then again, most NFL players are making far, far less than $15 million per year) are treated by police officers and by the justice system.”

    They are protesting the perception of treatment. That perception is tainted by baised news coverage that presents very little factual information. That perception was tainted by a POTUS and AG who then fanned the flames of perception.
    There is a real issue with police forces abusing power. Civil asset forfeiture, irresponsible use of deadly force and just abuses in general need to be properly handled. However there is a significant amount of cognitive dissonance that is created when a culture that openly promotes violence through any number of social and art mediums kneels for the anthem to protest perceived bias and violence against them. I don’t understand how people can’t accept that.

  16. The take-away is that the players have not accepted the President’s offer to consider pardoning people who the players designate that have been sentenced unfairly—–isn’t that one of the players’ major issues?? Do the players not really want a solution?

  17. Trump will easily win a 2nd term because not everybody lives in a bubble and only knows what the bought and paid for media says.

    Since when did stupidity over take football as the number one sport. Toronto must be an avid Fox News junket…you know where the Liar in Chief is the News Director. Time for Don the Con to do his job and leave sports alone. This was a dead issue until the Con Man brought it back to life for political purposes.

  18. Nobody is protesting perception, it’s reality. Just because you haven’t been through it and probably aren’t a minority doesn’t make it any less real.

  19. I would have far more respect for millionaire athletes if they did more awareness on their social media platforms, volunteered to help those who are unfairly incarcerated or got involved in Community relations policy. That’s REALLY hard work & it takes time/effort.

    ————————————–
    They won’t solve black on black crime because they know there is only one way to do it: Unleash the Police in black neighborhoods and give them free reign to clean up the area. The Democrats don’t want that because without poverty and crime, they have no platform in minority communities. Trump has offered an olive branch to players and they refuse to take it due to being brainwashed by community leaders and SJW bloggers.

  21. Players should worry more about their own brethren getting their brains knocked in and leaving the league crippled with CTE.

    Maybe someone at Faux News and Friends will ask the president, “Do you have to stand if you have bone spurs Cadet Bone Spurs?”

    Or, maybe not.

    “Those who support Trump and his demented vision for America most certainly live in a bubble”
    —————————-
    What’s his demented vision for America? Making trade deals that increase our returns? Lowering minority unemployment to record levels? Improving the economy? Putting America first as POTUS?

  24. There’s one sport Trump loves more than football: Big Mac eating contests, and he has the Big Arse to prove it.

  25. It should be mentioned that most of the protest is based pure lies and myths. Hands up don’t shoot is a lie but it is still used by the protest movement.

  26. Love all the patriots suddenly concerned about a president’s military record. Obama couldn’t even get a security clearance.

  27. Well, at least now he’s openly admitting he is completely ignorant to what they players are saying.

  28. Just because a player (who yes does make a good living) uses his platform to protest the treatment of others doesn’t make him unpatriotic. I was no Steve Kerr fan but he said it pretty clearly that this is fake patriotism. The aunt, uncle, nephew, brother, cousin, neighbor of the professional black athlete doesn’t make millions but they do not have a voice. I think I saw Mark Schlereth say it well – he never had to discuss with his kids what to do when the police pull you over or put you up against the wall. It never occurred to him to do so, same with me as a father, because we are white. People will not cross the street or clutch their purse tightly when they see me coming. So do not pretend this is only about Trumps faux patriotism principles when its about racism.

  29. Looks more and more like he’s a professional grifter and con man, so he goes to his bread and butter issue that unites Americans: racism

  30. If they dont like the way they are treated by the Police and justice system, stop breaking the law!

  31. Playing the anthem is an overt political act. Want to get the politics out if it? Stop playing the anthem.

  32. In the meantime, they’re making $15 million a year.
    ——–
    Unlike politicians, making 15 million a year didn’t make these athletes forget where they came from. Modest beginnings. Heartland of America. Inner cities of America. The fields and the streets alike.

    Maybe we need more athletes that came from modesty and less politicians that were born on 3rd or sold out the very people they came from? Remembering where you came from is not a bad thing.

    No. The Players realize almost everything this man does is has a political endgame. And they (The Players) are not falling for his ttrickeration. If the president of the US wanted to find the people who are festering in US prisons due to the unjust, racist mandaory sentencing of the 80’s-90’s, he could obtain this information instantaneously. Stop Deflecting.

    What I want to know is when a certain head of an environmental agency is going down.

  34. My mom is one of the nicest people I’ve ever known and she never says anything bad about anyone yet she expresses a serious hatred of Trump. This tells me all I need to know. He’s a vile, disgusting human being who’s totally unfit to be president

  35. This is a traitor who committed treason with Russia, cuts deals with China to weaken the US and enrich himself, puts the American flag next to the N. Korean flag, talks about how much he admires brutal dictator Kim Jong-Un, and salutes N. Korean generals. He has no ability to talk about what is ‘patriotic’ or not. He should be in a Federal prison by now.

    I would love it if players would “use their platforms” to look out for their loved one. Unfortunately, they are using MY platform as a spectator, and are interrupting my enjoyment of sports and escape from my problems for a few hours. Spend some of that money and rent a hall on your own time and rally, rally, protest until the cows come home. Just give me my time without political and/social diatribe.
    You have a right and a responsibility to voice your concerns about how minorities and, believe it or not, many non-minorities are treated, but using a sports venue does nothing but divide people.
    Do these players think so little of themselves that they think no one will listen to them unless they are wearing their uniform?

    The Chinese just announced retaliatory tariffs targeted directly at Trump voting states. This is what you get when you get conned by a fraud like him. And Trump supporters, I wouldn’t crow about the economy, this is still the tail end of Obama’s economy and Trump is showing signs of wrecking it with his inane trade wars.

  38. No matter how one feels about this, the President can not be begging to be worshiped and that is what this is. He doesn’t care about the troops. He demonstrated that when he bashed POWs and those who have fallen or when he dodged the chance to serve the country himself. Trump wants everyone worshiping him plain and simple. No you must not stand because we are free, we have a choice. No you must not always have to be proud because we are free to think differently. Our president is advocating on taking away of freedom. Freedom gets taken away from a domestic threat far more often than a foreign one and this is how it starts.

  39. I’m just here for all the comments by those people traumatized on election night is it football season yet ?

  40. Leftists protestors never want SOLUTIONS — they define their existence by how much of a victim they are and how often they whine and complain. “Sad.”

    Good thing Kim Kardashian and Kanye did not follow that loser path, as Alice Johnson is now a Pardoned woman because of it.

    No one has to like President TRUMP, but anyone that “hates” him is mentally ill; especially, in light of the fact that he has delivered the LOWEST EVER Black unemployment (3.8% for all others), HIGHEST EVER small business index and median household wealth, and real-wage growth on low end for first time in a decade. I truly hope you and your mother get the professional medical care you clearly need.

  42. Trump loses credibility after saluting a foreign general in north korea of all places…faux news would have ripped obama to shreds for this

  44. “When you’re in a stadium and they broadcast that national anthem, you’ve got to stand” –

    My biggest problem is the second part about “Broadcast”ing the National Anthem. 95% of the games go to commercial break for the National Anthem. The League gets money from the DoD to display the Flag, then their broadcast partners take that time to get money from the beer & pharmaceutical companies, which in turn goes back to the League. The League wants to be both Patriotic, while also profiteering off of it as well. The League created this mess & they deserve all of the mud thrown in their faces for the complete mishandling of the situation. From the start, they have handled this terribly, all the way through the protest, & into whatever mess they got themselves into now.

    Hilarious (meaning terrifyingly stupid) that Trump wanted to pardon Muhammad Ali, probably the most political athlete of all time, and yet still says this. To make it dumber, Ali didn’t need to be pardoned. He won his Supreme Court case back in the 70’s.

    “Unjust, racist mandatory sentencing”? Aside from the fact that never happened, just who do you think would have this information “instantaneously”? Plenty of people have been convicted of crimes they did not commit, but no one entity has been keeping score. You’re crazy if you think there’s some government agency keeping track of “Unjust, racist” convictions. Stop believing everything a race-baiting media tells you and start thinking for yourself.

  51. New Manafort charges are rumored to be released soon, possibly today. Trump trying to control the news cycle by dredging up old talking points. He usually does this when his lawyers tell him something bad is about to hit.

  52. Boy those hillary loving ***’s are out in force today lol! All those people think trump voters like trump, typical lemming hive mind logic right there. The alternative was literally electing a witch to office, what choice did we have lol, we’re not married to freaking trump because we voted for the lesser of two evils.

  53. In his heart he only salutes the Trump flag. He can obviously distract the intellectually lazy that seem unwilling to observe actions over words, but he can’t distract the entire country. Give it time, most of his cult will have their eyes opened by something he does.

    ==================================

    Yikes, its an economic fact that Trump is still riding Obama’s policies which were steadily improving the economy since the ’08 crash. Just as Obama was helped by the end of Bush’s term when the bailouts were approved by Bush. Historically this has played out over and over where a new president’s effect isn’t felt for 2 years or so. Trump hasn’t done anything except give large companies tax breaks and they are spending it much more on stock buybacks than job creation. Not disputable. And he’s trying his hardest to dismantle Dodd Frank which was put in place to prevent another ’08. Its idiotic.

  56. “I think it’s great. I love athletics, I love sports. But they shouldn’t get the politics involved.”

    Maybe, inversely, the politicians should not get involved in sports.

  57. Thank you Donald J Trump. A true American Patriot, Leader and Peace Maker. The world will most certainly never see a Leader again as Great as he. Thanks again Donald and I can’t wait to get the vote out in 2020.

  58. Trump defended Roseanne who disgraced the National Anthem with the trifecta of bad singing, a spit and a crotch grab. And Trump doesn’t know the words. Its all for show. He doesn’t care about the anthem, he just wants to look good. Its really sad.

    And what exactly will that do. That’s more like a band-aid at best rather than a solution. What about the people who have died, what about preventing these things from happening in the future, what about actual reformation? I commend him for the offer but he doesn’t seem to care about those things. It just looks like he want to make it seem like he’s reaching out to the players. And lets be real, we know how much this guy lies. I wouldn’t put it past him that he’d spin it in some way or not pull through even if they did have names of people they wanted pardoned.

  61. I don’t want the employees pushing their virtue signaling politics at any establishment I use as a customer. Do that on your own time. I’m not paying for your half-assed political opinion. I’m paying for a product or service.

  62. Trump also wants “his people” to sit at attention when he’s speaking. So now ya know: Stand at attention for the Anthem, and sit at attention when Trump speaks incoherently. That means YOU, Buster!

  63. I haven’t posted anything to this site in several months. I am tired of seeing the playoff game between the Snowflakes and the Cuckservastives on my football site’s comment section. Let me be as clear as I can possibly be about this…
    -Donald Trump wasn’t a billionaire until entered office.
    -Donald Trump dodged the draft.
    -Donald Trump called McCain a loser for getting shot down and being held captive as a POW for 6 years.
    -Donald Trump picked a fight with a GOLD STAR FAMILY on national television (for those of you that claim to be patriotic, that means that one of their children were killed in the line of duty fighting a war)
    -Donald Trump just recently held a “Patriotic display” in lieu of hosting the Super Bowl champs, where he famously forgot the words to God bless America.
    – Donald Trump is being streamed in a loop on North Korean television SALUTING A NORTH KOREAN GENERAL.
    That is just the “patriotic stuff.”

  64. The players didn’t get politics involved. The NFL got the flag involved by forcing the players to leave the locker room for the anthem, and the NFL then got politics involved by giving players the right to protest during the anthem.

    Quite correct. In fact, why have the anthem at all? What’s the point? … other than to create nationalists, which should be very much distinguished from patriots. In international competition it might make some sense, but not in a domestic league.

    “When you’re in a stadium and they broadcast that national anthem, you’ve got to stand,” the President said. “And you’ve got to be proud and you’ve got to have your hand up and you’ve got to do everything that’s right.”

    Funny, they said similar in Nazi Germany and in many other tyrannies over the course of time.

    Again, people need to distinguish between blind nationalism and true patriotism!

  65. BREAKING: MANAFORT GOES TO JAIL!

    “The President downplays the concerns by pretending that the concerns relate only to multi-multi-millionaires. That’s just not the case, and no fair-minded person can reasonably see it that way.”

    I guess Trump doesn’t realize that the individual players aren’t protesting JUST for themselves. Rich, poor and any POC color is at risk of receiving unequal treatment law enforcement.

    Their bank account DOES NOT insulate them, their families and friends, from being the next statistic. Same dude who salutes a NK general and continues to bad mouth America demands respect that has never been lacking. Instead of the players leaving the country, I’ve got a better idea.

    The take-away is that the players have not accepted the President’s offer to consider pardoning people who the players designate that have been sentenced unfairly—–isn’t that one of the players’ major issues?? Do the players not really want a solution?
    __________________________________________________________

    No. The Players realize almost everything this man does is has a political endgame. And they (The Players) are not falling for his ttrickeration. If the president of the US wanted to find the people who are festering in US prisons due to the unjust, racist mandaory sentencing of the 80’s-90’s, he could obtain this information instantaneously. Stop Deflecting.
    ————————————-
    “Unjust, racist mandatory sentencing”? Aside from the fact that never happened, just who do you think would have this information “instantaneously”? Plenty of people have been convicted of crimes they did not commit, but no one entity has been keeping score. You’re crazy if you think there’s some government agency keeping track of “Unjust, racist” convictions. Stop believing everything a race-baiting media tells you and start thinking for yourself.
    ________________________________
    Sorry you’re misinformed, not thinking for yourself, or thinking about your agenda or both. But it is fact that sentences that Alice Johnson suffered were instituted under federal minimums that were excessive and racist. To ask players to provide a “list” of “pardonable people” is foolish. If you want the list, as president, go to your justice department. And I really do not follow the media. But I do find it funny how you and your ilk have a newfound respect for Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, and Dennis Rodman as if they speak for anyone.

  67. treated.”

    The players inclined to protest during the anthem are promoting a cause far bigger than themselves. They are concerned about the manner in which American citizens making far, far less than $15 million per year (then again, most NFL players are making far, far less than $15 million per year) are treated by police officers and by the justice system.

    You speak loudest with your wallet. About every 4 or 5th vehicle I see on my morning drive to work made by the same manufacturers that attacked this country. Enslaved POWS and made them work and die in camps (both in Europe and in ASIA) tells me VERY CLEARLY that many Americans are not patriotic.
    ===============================================
    Are you really referring to Japanese cars and WWII? You do realize that was 80 years ago, right? I’m shocked you didn’t mention Obama or the “H” word. The epitome of a trumpster.

  69. These players are fools. Trump wants good headlines and the low IQ NFL players are too brainwashed to help a friend or family member get a commuted sentence. Who cares if Trump gets favorable publicity if that small gesture leads to a friend or family member who got screwed by the legal system being released from prison early? It’s a small price to pay. The first player to ask will get his request granted (especially if the offense was non-violent).

  70. Just overheard a large, ugly, stupid man telling a joke about how the President of the U.S.A. has the face of a horse’s ass. Maybe Trump should be annointed King because a lot of people are just too stupid to vote responsibly. Just sayin!

    —————
    CNN did though, also obama bowed down to the Saudi’s and was praised for it.

    =====================

    Saluting a general of an adversary is infinitely worse. KJU killed an American just a year ago. And Obama took a fair share of lumps for that.

  72. So Florio, chief SJW, the issue is about the way blacks are treated by the police. Should they be protesting that blacks are 13% of America’s population but according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, they commit 52% of all homicides. Moreover, according the DHHS, 75% of all live births to black women are to women who are not married….i.e. no father present. If the NFL players want to protest some worthy social causes, try these two.

    Hey Mike, can you pin point for me the exact time in history the flag and the anthem became about politics because I would really like to know and so would most other Americans.
    ================================
    Um, right about when Trumpty started shooting his mouth of about it. Do you live under a rock?

  74. He just keeps distracting his base with this anthem thing. Never mind that his campaign manager was just sent to jail. His lawyer is about to go to jail. He used charitable donations for bribes. Nation debt has increased over a trillion dollars since his inauguration. The Russians hacked our energy grid, and he doesn’t even acknowledge it.

    But yeah, these pesky NFL players!

    New Manafort charges are rumored to be released soon, possibly today. Trump trying to control the news cycle by dredging up old talking points. He usually does this when his lawyers tell him something bad is about to hit.

    =========================

    Called it. Just announced, Manafort is heading to jail this afternoon. Enjoyed the thumbs down though.

  76. Interesting, a poll by Anderson Robbins Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R) from June 3-6, 2018 of registered voters, shows that the NFL favor-ability rating has fallen, currently, 42 percent view the league favorably, down from 46 percent in 2017 and 64 percent in 2013. They found that while 42% viewed it favorably, 43% viewed it negatively. First time in history of the poll.

    That number is what has NFL owners concerned.

    On the new rule about standing or staying in the locker room, 31% are opposed, 61% in favor.

    To those bashing Trump: He is a businessman, he understands those numbers. Because you do not agree with his policies, there is no need to mindlessly bash him on a football blog for his policies. If you made those same comments about another poster, you would be blocked from this blog, been there, done that.

    I notice, within moments of the link to this article was published on several liberal blogs with encouragement to comment on it, people are posting whose pseudonyms I have never seen here before.

  77. Love all the patriots suddenly concerned about a president’s military record. Obama couldn’t even get a security clearance.

    Just so i can understand. In this country, with the exception of the National Guard, and perhaps the FBI – Policing is done on the local level. It is not a National Issue.

    So demonstrating against the Flag – which is a National issue – is in essence protesting against something that has nothing to do with your cause.

    Don’t want to stand for the Anthem? Fine. You can stay in the locker room. Don’t like issues with the local police? How about working on initiatives to bring the police and the community together. Community based solutions which will bring everyone together.

    —————

    Who says that the police want to be “brought together?”

    Who do they “protect and serve?” HINT: It’s not you. If you think it is then you need to educate yourself on the topic further.

    I’ll issue the same challenge that I do to all the good nationalists that blindly support the statist narrative-of-the-day w/o any thought much less independent thought whatsoever;

    Go to thefreethoughtproject.com every day for 30 days. Then come back and post your feelings and thoughts.

    CLUE: It’s not just black people that are abused and killed by police.

  79. Sigh…

    “blah blah Trump’s a traitor”

    “blah blah Obama was worse”

    “I hate you so I’m calling your favorite candidate names and will not evaluate any reasonable claim otherwise!”

    ^^America right now. The liberals and the conservatives are no better than each other. You’d rather call each other names and overexaggerate every slightest detail that the media (on either side) feeds you so that they can milk you for ratings. News is a business. They do it for money. They give a damn about presenting an unbiased, truthful illustration of actual events. Whether that means emphasizing police violence or Benghazi or Clinton’s emails or Russian collusion or demeaning Eagles players for kneeling, they really don’t care. All they want is for you to get mad and hate the other guys so you can tune in to see their talking heads tell you how much you should hate the other guys. And you buy in when you do their work for them.

    If you want to support or criticize the players for their decision, that’s your right. But before you call Democrats “snowflakes” or refer to the President as “dumpf” or whatever your particular flavor of disrespect for the other side is, consider that you are getting literally nowhere by doing that and you’re just playing into the hands of the media bias that has trained you to think that way.

    You mean the GOP owned news stations that FORCED their journalists to regurgitate a prepared statement full of inaccuracy and misleading sentiment?

    Right…

  81. It’s hilarious how people talk about black employment numbers being the lowest because of Trump when that’s a byproduct of the Obama administration. I think everybody in America that owns a brain knows how these things work.

  82. Clearly some of you do not understand the meaning of forced patriotism. The fact that the NFL owners required their players to stand and salute the anthem is not the sign of a country the promotes freedom as one of its pillars and is the definition of bringing politics into the workplace. Regardless, if it stared this year or at the creation of sports leagues, it was wrong then and it is wrong now.

    Take for instance, if any one of the players is having a grievance against the USA for any reason, why should they be made to stand at attention to salute a flag/country in which that person feels is not representing them. The core principle that this country was founded on was that you do not always need to agree with the government in order to be considered unpatriotic. Did those ranchers that took over the government building at any time be not considered patriots? As I recall all the news networks were hailing them and their dissent as heroes standing up for freedom.

    The hypocrisy is on full display with this issue.

  83. I’ve watched plenty of videos of white people getting pulled over and arrested and even shot by police. It has nothing to do with race or color and everything to do with behavior and not complying.

    We used to have a countdown of days in a week before an NFL player would be charged with a crime.

Having a crime family in office is a new thrill every day!

About every 4 or 5th vehicle I see on my morning drive to work made by the same manufacturers that attacked this country. Enslaved POWS and made them work and die in camps (both in Europe and in ASIA) tells me VERY CLEARLY that many Americans are not patriotic. They are emotional but not patriotic.

    I’ll understand if this doesn’t post. I generally kept this thought to myself. But don’t tell me how much of a super patriot you are while you buy for war manufacturers that attacked and enslaved Americans. Don’t tell me how much of a super patriot you are when you pass over American goods for Chinese goods. Standing is easy. To me your not patriotic you are just lazy. This is the easiest form for your public display. That’s why you want it. Because it’s easy.

    I won’t buy a car from a nation that basically tried to exterminate an entire group of people, and enslaved a whole lot of another group of people, so that is why I don’t buy American cars. That, and because they generally suck.

  86. The players definitely are saying, “It has nothing to do with the flag.”

    Maybe Faux News has not reported this yet, but the coward also known as POTUS has no military record. He is a coward, a racist, a misogynist, a tax cheat, a despicable liar; and those are not even his worst “qualities.”

  88. “(then again, most NFL players are making far, far less than $15 million per year)”

    To someone making less than $100,000 a year, anything over a million might as well be $50 million. It’s a long way from what the majority makes.

  89. You Trump supporters truly are a hateful group of people. I don’t hate you in return though I just feel kind of bad for you. Impeachment proceedings will start soon after the midterms just so you know.

  90. If Trump had his way, they’d take the starts off of the American flag and white TRUMP in white stitching within the blue field.

    I hung my American flag out yesterday for Flag Day, and it is out again today. My reasons for doing so have nothing to do with him….more so in spite of him.

  91. For all of the imbecile in the White House’s complaining about NFL players taking a knee, maybe someone should remind the Russian collaborator and his idiotic loyalists that Donnie Boy took a FOOT, five times! Yes, the poor little rich kid’s daddy pulled strings to keep his obvious piece of garbage son out of serving. Last I checked, no NFL player was wiping the brown stuff off their faces for kissing Putin’s butt like Donnie does. He then totes out his insane lawyer, Rudy, the bad script from a Jibber Jabber segment along with his press cow, Sarah Sanders playing Cruella De Vil with the media and the stench from the White House might be more alarming than a few drops to the knee

  92. Whatever the protests were at the beginning, they have morphed into generic anti-Trump protests and nothing more. The players don’t want dialogue, they want monologues from them and they want Trump to shut up and take it, like they are used to Republicans like Romney and Bush doing. Those days are over. And, it laughable how many people think Mueller and the Attorney General of New York now are going to take down Trump. He isn’t going anywhere and is going to be re-elected easily.

  94. As usual, the orange jackass in the White House is lying, obfuscating, and diverting attention from the real issues at stake here. And his gullible voter base eagerly laps up every lie that comes out of his corrupt, treasonous mouth. Traitor Trump hates the NFL because they wouldn’t let him into their owners club. Therefore, he keeps attacking the league and lying about the anthem protests, which have nothing to do with the military or disrespecting the flag. Wake up and try to understand what’s really happening here, America. It’s not about anything other than drawing attention to police brutality and mistreatment of Black Americans. (Of course, 45 doesn’t like Black people, so he’s just throwing red meat to his mouth breathing base. That’s how he rolls.)

  95. He knows by talking about players salaries (though few make $15 million) he can get the support of the downtrodden white male, who believes he wasn’t given a fair shot in a country that caters to him and blindly thinks Trump has any sort of compassion for the disenfranchised. It’s a well played game by Trump and he knows that. If you’re a fool, you’ll buy into what he’s saying.

  96. Of course he’s revisiting this issue. He knows it’s a reliable way to engage his supporters and their faux-patriotism. These people don’t really care about patriotism and norms. They didn’t care about it when Trump insulted John McCain and other P.O.W.’s with his “he’s no hero… I prefer soldiers who don’t get captured” nonsense. And they didn’t care about it when he fought with a Gold Star family.

    Their ‘outrage’ is phony and selective.

  97. The guy’s submental. Nothing new there. But look at the way his Administration treats chronic pain sufferers. We should recognize the sacrifices these patients are forced to make with purple hearts, but that would risk revealing that they were involuntarily DRAFTED into the War on Opioids. Is that justice? No, but these patients are an inconvenient truth to the Feds whose next raise, promotion, or pat on the back depends on reducing prescriptions by 30% over year last.

  98. No respect for anyone supporting Trump. None.

    Esp Brady and Belli….really shows the terribel character of these people who are proven cheaters.

  99. It’s a feelings over facts issue and the NFL captiulated to Kapernick. We live in a country with over 325 million. and we have had less than 1000 police shootings last year. 45 percent white, 24 percent black, 17 percent hispanic.

  102. “I think it’s great. I love athletics, I love sports. But they shouldn’t get the politics involved.”

    Well then, Clown…you and your cronies (AG Sessions) should keep religion out of politics! But no….keep this issue at the forefront so that all of your sheople stay in line!

  103. “Those who support Trump and his demented vision for America most certainly live in a bubble”
    —————————-
    What’s his demented vision for America? Making trade deals that increase our returns? Lowering minority unemployment to record levels? Improving the economy? Putting America first as POTUS?

    Brilliantly stated. The left is so deranged, someone in office is making this country awesome again, and they can’t stand it that a conservative is responsible for bringing this country back to greatness. Thank God the socialist we had for 8 years before didn’t totally ruin us. Thank God!

  104. last fall, after a long day of hiking, tired and hungry, I called in some sandwiches for my wife and I. I pulled into the sandwich shop’s parking lot, parked my truck, got out and was half way to the door when I heard “excuse me sir, will you please get back in your car”. As I continued walking toward the door, I turned my head to see what the commotion was, saw a police officer walking toward and looking at me, and he said “will you please get in your car”. I stopped and said “are you talking to me?” He said “yes, will you please get back in your car”. So I did. Apparently I had run a red light…. when I last looked up it was still yellow and I figured I had enough time to make it.

    The officer was very polite to me, let me off with a warning.

    I’ve seen many of the videos of occasions when things went really wrong….and in a lot of them the police officer is aggressive from the start. Most people respect the police (as I do) but nobody likes to be treated like that. The officer that I encountered was very polite, and treated me with respect.

    btw….I’m a 59 y.o. white guy.

  105. Fair point about how all of this started. Roger Goodell forced the players out of the locker room for the national anthem in 2009, but neglected to implement a policy similar to the NBA. Now there is another mess in the NFL that he is trying to pawn off to the teams and throw water on the bad publicity.

  106. The clown president can continue to rile up his misguided base with contrived culture war issues but its difficult, even for an authoritarian egomaniac, to truly repress free speech. So, he brow beat the NFL into demanding that players stand for the national anthem. What are they gonna do when someone raises a fist – sign an executive order prohibiting fist raising during the national anthem?…

  107. Flag and anthem have existed for quite a while now.. and we’ve been playing the anthem before sporting events for generations. Nothing new or political about playing the anthem before an event. They politicized it by bringing current events into a long standing tradition, and being disrespectful about it. By that logic Florio i guess you take the blame back even further.. “it’s our founders fault for making us have a flag in the first place! “ see how easy and nonsensical that is?

    —————————————

    Players have only been on the sideline for a short time. 10 years isn’t a long time. Comparing that to the founding fathers is a ridiculous comparison. Also the founding fathers would have hated the idea of us worshiping a federal government like this.

    When you’re responding to disrespect and attacks, not only against the Flag and the country, but personal attacks, you can either respond like a man and a leader or lay down like a coward. Donald J Trump has chosen the former rather than the latter. That’s why he’s a great President and previous Administrations are door mats.

  109. I moved to NYC 6 years ago from Small town PA.
    I was very happy in small town PA.

    Most family and friends back there are Trump supporters.

    But you don’t know you are in a bubble until you leave a bubble. I was in a bubble.

    I often wonder if I would like/support Trump had I not moved.
    I would like to believe I would not have. But it is something I think about a lot.

  110. About every 4 or 5th vehicle I see on my morning drive to work made by the same manufacturers that attacked this country.

    You won’t buy cars from Japan or Germany for a war that ended 70+ years ago? Thats kind of strange. Both of those countries have chnaged dramatically since the end of the war, and have become significant allies to the US, so to hold a grudge against them for this long shows me that you are more emotional rather than patriotic.

  111. Trump…?? Respond like a man…?? This has to be a joke. Never before has any American President been so sycophantic, weak and deferential to the leader of Communist Russia than Trump.

    The next time he takes a position of strength towards Russia will be his first.

  114. The guy who salutes North Korean generals is lecturing us on patriotism? Wow. It’s almost like he’s a draft dodger too or something.

  115. As a Viet Nam Vet who was drafted I find a draft dodger commenting on respecting the flag as a joke. When our country needed him to stand up he took a knee….or should i say a bone spur…so anything thatcoward says is just political filler for the Fox Newbees who don’t want the truth. The players are not protesting against the flag, but i think they need to find a more suitable forum the Trump supporters can understand….you know something very simple…..very simple.

  116. I’m not a fan of the players kneeling, but this comment section, you guys arguing about politics is worse.

    If any one of you has a valid point to make, I haven’t read it.

  117. Trump wants to talk about patriotism. Really?

    The man who blasted POW’s and gold star families, dodged the draft at least 5 separate times, used a loss to not pay taxes for a decade and now hides much his money offshore to avoid paying US taxes?

    The guy who in one of his proposed budgets, wanted to cut benefits for disabled veterans (in some cases from $35k a year all the way down to $13k (thankfully it didn’t happen))?

    The same guy who proposed $154 BILLIOn in cuts to veteran services and benefits over the next 10 years?

    Whose budget cuts to social services are estimated to cost 400,000 veterans their access to nutrition assistance PER YEAR
    And an estimated 340,000 veterans access to job training programs.

    All to pay for the tax cuts for himself and his millionaire & billionaire buddies. In fact, for every $2 he proposed in cuts to services and benefits to veterans,
    Trump plans to give more than $3 to the adults of millionaires and billionaires.

    Whose efforts to repeal the ACA almost cost an estimated 554,000 veterans their Medicaid benefits. And the new proposed changes are estimated to be even worse at almost 600,000 veterans losing their Medicaid benefits.

    That’s not even mentioning his policies that will increase housing insecurity and homelessness among veterans.

    And that’s also not even touching all the other unpatriotic stuff he’s done over the years, like blatantly ripping off the American people with scam after scam like Trump network, trump steaks, trump university etc etc.
    Or the 1000’s of lawsuits against him for discrimination, fraud, failure to pay contractors etc etc.
    Or the 100’s of documented cases of businesses (usually smaller businesses of working class men and women) he’s bankrupted by refusing to pay after services rendered and then tying them up in court for years.

    So yeah, excuse me if I don’t care what this guy thinks about what NFL p,auers are doing for the anthem.

    Trump is playing all you supporters for fools. Please wake up and read some actual, factual news stories outside your little Fox News, right wing bubble (which has been documented time and again to be the overwhelming source of fake news (something like 84% of fake news stories)).

Hardly a liberal just someone who hates racists and liars and those insecure enough to have to resort to calling someone a moron because they disagree with your Fox News fed lies. Sonny you are living on someone else’s heroism….Mc Cain and Kerry. My guess is loud noises scary you like big black men.

    I fear fat women and empty beer fridges but not much else. Liberal morons I pity and despise equally. Especially the ones steal valor.

    I think you fear Mommy and you would be afraid to say what you just said face to face with a Veteran. Having never served your valor comes from comic books and reality Tv…. but you live free off the valor of others…..i eat little boys like you for breakfast….thanks for the humorous display of internet bravado…a Trumper trait.

  124. Chief Bone Spurs is too busy saluting DPOK generals and conceding our military superiority to a murdering madmen to give a bird about American citizens.

  125. “Some folks are born silver spoon in hand”
    Mister flag waver never served, avoided it like many wealthy souls.
    Does he have a right to comment at all about what goes on in this great country
    every day, yes he does. Just like us all. But please stay away from our treasured national institution of Football, stop the FAKE Patriotism. Love this real country, from sea
    to shining sea.

    I’m sure you’re a real tough guy when sharing your views down at the VFW. But you probably don’t go anymore after getting worked over a few times.

    Liberalsruineverything looks at everything in a left/right lens. I can only imagine how small your world must be.

    Sad.

  128. Trump bowed to North Korea and made us on same level. Never thought I’d see the day in my life.

    Ask Sterling Brown how money and fame affected his dealings with law enforcement.

    This is what is wrong with the movement. That guys an idiot. Watch the video. Forget why he was encountered. Watch the video and watch what Brown does. I’m going to tell you when you start an encounter with the police by refusing to identify (lawful request) you are already headed down a dark path. Add to that throwing your hands in your pockets during the same encounter. The outcome was pretty predictable. He was destined to be touched in same manner.
