Guess What NFL Players Were Caught Doing During Preseason Games?

Published

on

Despite a few steps being taken by the NFL, it doesn’t appear that much is going to be different this season when it comes to players disrespect the American flag, their freedom, and the National Anthem.

Players have already been spotted during preseason games kneeling and raising their fists during the National Anthem, continuing their divisive “protest” for the third year in a row.

Wide receivers Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson, both of the Miami Dolphins, knelt during “The Star-Spangled Banner,” ahead of their game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Miami Herald reported.

Robert Quinn, a defensive end for the Dolphins, raised his fist. Philadelphia Eagles Malcolm Jenkins, who plays safety, and De’Vante Bausby, a cornerback, also raised their fists prior to a game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Defensive end Michael Bennett walked out of the tunnel as the anthem played and “spent the anthem walking toward the bench,” the news outlet reported. Teammate Chris Long reportedly “placed his arm around Jenkins’ shoulder” during the song.

Here’s what the NFL said about the preseason protests:

“The NFL has been engaged in constructive discussions with the NFL Players Association regarding the anthem and issues of equality and social justice that are of concern to many Americans,” the statement said. “While those discussions continue, the NFL has agreed to delay implementing or enforcing any club work rules that could result in players being disciplined for their conduct during the performance of the anthem.”

The statement went on to say that the league’s national anthem policy remained unchanged: it will continue to be played before each game, and all players and team staff on the field are expected to stand for the flag and the anthem. Those who choose not to stand must remain in the locker rooms.

These folks don’t understand that they are disrespecting the very country that provided them with an opportunity to make something of their lives, each and every time they kneel. It’s also a slap in the face to the men and women who have fought, bled, and died for the flag and the freedoms it represents.

If these people want to protest, that’s fine. Do it on your own time. It’s that simple.

Lindsey Graham Sends Cryptic Tweet to Comey as GOP Prepares Rebuttal

The media, along with the democrats, have been bludgeoning the nation with the “collusion” narrative…but what comes around, goes around.

James Comey

With the Mueller report finished, our nation will soon find herself in the next phase of the “Russiagate” scandal:  Redemption. For nearly two years we have been held hostage not only by the dark cloud of the Mueller investigation itself, but also by the democrats and the mainstream media who have been smothering us with the idea that the President of The United States is some sort of Russian spy. As far as cultural conditioning goes, this won’t be an easy reputation to repudiate, thanks to the endless chyrons and sobbing pundits of the corporately-controlled “infotainment” industry. But, in the halls of Washington DC, the rebuking comes hard and fast. In the case of James Comey, the disgraced former head of the FBI who was intrinsic to the origins of the Mueller investigation, a purposefully vague yet perfectly staged photograph of him staring into some forlorn-looking forest was meant to be his way of subtly discrediting Mueller. https://twitter.com/Comey/status/1109930531389472768 Republican Senator Lindsey Graham had the perfect response: https://twitter.com/LindseyGrahamSC/status/1109984734212513793 Graham is almost certainly referencing the likely possibility in which Comey and other who were integral to this probe getting off the ground could be brought in front of Congress to testify regarding their decisions.

Mad Max Throws Predictable Tantrum Over RussiaGate Nothing Burger

Not one to miss an opportunity for outrageous indignation and the airtime that comes along with it, Maxine Waters has begun to disseminate her own views on the developments.

Maxine Waters

For nearly two years the nation has waited, and, during that wait, we have been fairly nasty to one another. You see, the democrats decided to go all in on a conspiracy theory first mentioned by failed 2016 candidate Hillary Clinton in which Donald Trump was some sort of “Russia asset”, sent to the White House on orders of Vladimir Putin. We know the rest of the long story:  Robert Mueller spend the next 22 months looking far and wide for proof of this collusion and came up essentially empty.  (And that was after investigating a number of bizarre, out-of-the-Russian-realm leads as well). To say that Mueller was thorough would be a gross understatement. Now, with the democrats overtly disappointed in the summary statement produced by the Attorney General regarding the Mueller Report, they’ve again begun to radicalize en masse. Not one to miss an opportunity for outrageous indignation and the airtime that comes along with it, Maxine Waters has begun to disseminate her own views on the developments…and they are predictably batty.  “This is not the end of anything!” Waters told MSNBC’s Joy Reid as they realized the report was a giant nothing burger for Democrats. “This is the— well, it’s the end of the report and the investigation by Mueller. But those of us who chair these committees have a responsibility to continue with our oversight,” Waters said. “There’s so much that, uh, needs to be, you know, taken a look at at this point,” she claimed,” and so it’s not the end of everything.” Waters joins fellow democratic Congressperson Adam Schiff in continuing to assert that there is still evidence of “collusion” between the Trump campaign and Russia, despite Robert Mueller specifically stating that this was not the case after 22 months of investigation.
