NFL Quarterback Posts Memorial Day Photo on Twitter and It’s Awesome

So awesome to see this!

At a time when it seems like loving your country and desiring to show respect to the flag and to the men and women who have sacrificed their lives to protect our liberty is coming more and more under attack, it’s refreshing, especially in the NFL, to see a professional athlete show his pride for the nation he calls home.

This is exactly what Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz did when he posted a picture on Memorial Day to honor the memory of soldiers who have died in order to preserve our American way of life, showcasing his gratitude for what these amazing people gave for our rights.

What makes this photo so special is that it shows Wentz standing for the National Anthem, something that many NFL players frown upon as they take knees during the song as some sort of protest against racial inequality. Or so they claim.

The photo, which shows Wentz holding the edge of an American flag between two soldiers, comes after the NFL announced its decision to punish teams whose players knelt in protest during the playing of The Star Spangled Banner.

‘Freedom sometimes comes at a cost,’ he wrote in the tweet. ‘Today, I just want to thank all of the brave men & women who have sacrificed so much to provide us w/ the freedoms we have in this country.

‘Its often taken for granted and y’all don’t get the recognition you deserve. So thank you & God bless!’

‘Personally, I don’t view it (this way), I know some people do, but I don’t view it as a political thing whatsoever. I don’t mess with politics very often, but I will be involved in going to that,’ Wentz said on Tuesday.

He added: ‘For me personally, if the team decides as a whole, most guys want to go and be a part of it, I will be attending with them. I think it’s just a cool way to receive the honor, kind of nationally and be recognized.’

This guy is a real class act, the type of individual the NFL could use a lot more of, as their ranks are becoming increasingly filled with folks who aren’t in the game to be the best, but to use their platform for some sort of social cause.

There’s nothing wrong with using a large platform to draw attention to things you believe in, however, there’s a right way and wrong way to protest. Disrespecting the flag, the anthem, the country, and by extension it’s fallen heroes, yeah that’s the wrong way.

Let’s hope more and more people take up Wentz’s example.

Had to be done.

Donald Trump accomplished more in one term than anybody thought possible. He managed to make even many “never Trump” Republicans see the light, with the way he went about business in the Oval Office. Unfortunately, Trump will not be able to serve a consecutive term and continue to expose government malfeasance. That being said, there’s still a whole lot POTUS can give us before leaving 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. on the 20th.

Joe is quite the card, even after all these decades. WATCH: Joe Biden: “I know President Trump likes to take credit for the economy… Just look at the facts, not the alternative facts. President Trump inherited an economy from Obama-Biden administration that was given to him — just like he inherited everything else in his life.” https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1130179564351741952?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw

School Featured In ‘Remember the Titans’ Might Be Renamed ‘Kamala Harris High’

Great movie, terrible idea.

Giving Kamala Harris the title of vice president is pretty awful. Senator was bad enough. But now she’s going to be honored with her name on a school? What’s next? Forget Harriet Tubman and put the woman who slept her way into politics on the $20? From TDW: T.C. Williams High School, well known for its prominent role in the popular Disney film “Remember The Titans”, could soon be renamed as “Kamala Harris High School.” In November, the Alexandria City School Board voted unanimously to remove Williams’ name due to his support of segregation while serving as superintendent of the Alexandria, VA, school system. According to the school, Williams was a “staunch segregationist whose views could not have been more inconsistent with the vibrant, diverse and inclusive place we know today.” Students are being given the chance to vote. The final decision will be made in April. Other options the kids have to choose from are “George Floyd High School” and “Ruth Bader Ginsburg High School.” If it came down to Kamala, George, or Ruth, you’d have to go with RBG High…right?? Here’s a clip from the film… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aYp94Kk8AdE
