Hockey Coach Who’s Speech About National Anthem Went Viral Doubles Down On Remarks

The sports world needs more coaches like this guy.

Published

John Krupinsky, a hockey coach who recently went viral after he demanded his players respect the National Anthem, isn’t backing down from his remarks, stating the reason he’s passionate about this issue is that he’s seen too much death and disrespect.

In the video in question, Krupinsky — who also serves as a police sergeant, says, “If there’s anybody here who is going to be disrespectful to either the American or the Canadian national anthem, grab your gear and get the f*** out now because you’ll never see the ice in this arena. We don’t have that problem in hockey. We’re better than that, but there was no sense in wasting anybody’s time if that s*** was going to happen.”

The assistant coach for the Danbury Hat Tricks of the Federal Hockey League discussed the video on “Fox & Friends.”

“I take pride in my country,” Krupinksy said. “I’ve unfortunately seen it cover too many coffins. I think we can take a timeout to give two minutes’ worth of respect to our soldiers, to our firemen, to your policemen. I don’t think that’s asking too much. I’m not going to apologize for asking players to show a little bit of respect when it’s either the American or Canadian national anthem.”

He added, “Some people said, ‘Oh you wouldn’t let your players protest.’ I wanna be clear: My players would be free to protest on their day off. If they had something they wanted to do.”

When the national anthem is playing, however, it’s an entirely different story.

“I don’t think it’s too much to ask your employees to show some respect for the flag and for the country,” he reasoned.

The world of sports absolutely needs more men like Krupinsky to help balance out all the wannabe Kaepernicks out there who are using their platforms to destroy their country and bash the men and women have died to protect their way of life.

Hopefully, his players will grow to appreciate his stance and passion on the issue and respect his words without giving pushback.

Trump Wants Senate Trial, Calls For Schiff And Whistleblower To Be Impeachment Witnesses

Published

President Trump called into “Fox & Friends” on Friday morning where he made a call for a Senate impeachment trial and for said he wants House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and the whistleblower — along with others — to be called as witnesses. Here’s more from Fox News: “There’s nothing there,” Trump declared, claiming “there should never be an impeachment” and he “doesn’t know” the majority of the witnesses. But following a meeting with senators a day earlier, the president announced on the show that if the House impeaches, “Frankly, I want a trial.” He stressed that Senate trial would provide the opportunity to call other witnesses — including Hunter Biden, whose dealings in Ukraine were at the heart of what he wanted investigated out of Kiev, and especially Schiff. “There’s only one person I want more than ‘Where’s Hunter?’ and that is Adam Schiff,” Trump said. Trump blasted Schiff’s dramatic reading of the transcribed phone call he had with Ukraine’s president and then challenged his claim to not know the identity of the whistleblower, saying, “I want to see Adam Schiff testify about the whistleblower.” The president also stated that he wants to hear from the “fake whistleblower. He went on to say that “everybody” knows the individual’s identity already. Watch the latest video at foxnews.com

Kanye West Held Worship Service For Prison Inmates, Atheist Group Argues It Violated Constitution

Published

Popular rap artist and born again Christian Kanye West recently held a surprise worship service in a county jail a week ago to share the hope of the gospel with those who are oh so desperate for the hope it provides. However, this gesture of good will did not seem to go over well with atheist group Freedom From Religion Foundation. The group sent a letter to Sheriff Ed Gonzalez on Monday stating that a “church service” like the one West held in the jail should never happen again and that it violated the Constitution. Here’s more from TheBlaze: “It is our understanding that Harris County Sheriff officials organized two concerts for inmates and staff on Friday, November 15,” the letter recalls. “Kanye West and his choir performed songs from West’s recent religious album, ‘Jesus Is King,’ and the performances were ‘really more like a church service,’ a sentiment you explicitly and publicly admitted. Photos suggest this is true, too.” The “photos” in reference show one tweet by Sheriff Gonzalez saying, “[Kanye West] and his choir brought some light and #churchservice to people who needed it today at the Harris County Jail,” and another recalling West’s words to inmates that “this is a mission, not a show.” “In short, this was unconstitutional,” the atheist group’s letter said, arguing that the inmates didn’t really have a choice — “nobody believes there is a genuine choice between sitting in a cramped, locked cell, and listening to a two-hour long concert.” “This constitutional violation is particularly egregious because it imposed religion on inmates — literally a captive audience — who have a deep and immediate interest in being seen favorably by [Sheriff Gonzalez] and [his] staff.” “It is no excuse that Kayne West is famous,” the letter reads. Jason Spencer, a spokesman for…
