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.

DeSantis Says Anti-Vax Cops Eligible for $5K Signing Bonus in Florida

Florida = Freedom.

Published

on

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is taking a stand against the proliferation of COVID-19 vaccine mandates, and staking his political career on being right about it.

DeSantis has long railed against the idea that Floridians should be forced into medical decisions that they aren’t comfortable with, or be told what level of risk they are allowed to take in regard to the waning pandemic.  This has, of course, put him at odds with a vast number of Democrats as well as some of the major corporations that do business in the Sunshine State.

But DeSantis will not be deterred, and he has now offered a lifeline to essential personnel from other locales who are being effected by what he sees as an unconstitutional set of mandates.

During an appearance on “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo, DeSantis said he is now “actively working” to recruit out-of-state police officers who have been fired or placed on unpaid leave due to their city’s vaccine mandate.

“We’re actually actively working to recruit out-of-state law enforcement, because we do have needs in our police and our sheriff’s departments. So, in the next legislative session, I’m going to hopefully sign legislation that gives a $5,000 bonus to any out-of-state law enforcement that relocates in Florida,” DeSantis said.

“So, NYPD, Minneapolis, Seattle, if you’re not being treated well, we will treat you better here. You can fill important needs for us, and we will compensate you as a result,” he added.

DeSantis would go on to suggest that the vaccine mandates implored by the Biden administration are not only outside of the scope of the federal government’s power, but also incredibly detrimental to our chances at a full economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.
