NFL Players Coalition Works To Hit Trump At Ballot Box, Gets Immediate BAD News

Published

on

Apparently, some NFL players aren’t happy with Trump. Well, the pro, kneel-during-the-national-anthem ones at least.

The “Players Coalition” is working to get out the vote, and we can bet they aren’t urging people to support Republicans.

There’s a big problem with the messengers, though. The majority of Americans don’t agree with kneeling during the national anthem to make a political point.

CNBC reported that:

“With the NFL season set to start next week, a majority of voters believes it is inappropriate for players to kneel during the playing of the national anthem before games, according to a new poll from NBC News and the Wall Street Journal.

Fifty-four percent of voters called kneeling during the anthem inappropriate, while 43 percent say that the practice is an appropriate way to bring attention to the problems that NFL players have cited for their protests, the poll said.”

Sorry to say, but if only 43% of Americans support you, that’s not going to be enough to make a dent in the election results.

Besides, look at what happened when celebrities got involved in politics before. Most of Hollywood was vociferously anti-Trump, and he won.

Just recently Taylor Swift endorsed a few Democrats. One of them was Phil Bredesen for Senate. That day she endorsed him, The Tennessean reported a “close race” between Bredesen & Marsha Blackburn. But later that day, after Swift’s endorsement, another story came out that Blackburn surged in the polls over Bredesen by 8 points.

A New York Times poll a few days later had Blackburn at a whopping 14 points ahead of Bredesen. You can’t make this stuff up! Thanks, Swift!

Breitbart reported on the NFL Players Coalition voter drive.

“Can NFL players impact the upcoming mid-term elections? USA Today Sports columnist Nancy Armour thinks they can. She penned a column this week with the headline: “Players Coalition fights back against Trump at the ballot box.”

The Players Coalition is a group of NFL players focused on bringing awareness to what they believe are systematic problems in the United States, like racial inequality.

The coalition formed shortly after former San Francisco 49er QB Colin Kaepernick started the anthem protest movement in the summer of 2016.

“For the past few weeks, members of the Players Coalition have been participating in voter registration drives and doing PSAs to encourage people to vote,” Armour wrote.

“They’ve been lobbying for ballot initiatives that, among other things, would return voting rights to people in Florida convicted of non-violent felonies; reclassify low-level drug possession in Ohio to a misdemeanor; and make it easier to vote in Michigan.”

Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins, one of the more vocal players in the coalition, believes voting on November 6 is the best way to effect change.

“If we don’t give the public a way to get involved other than point out the problems, we’re not having the greatest impact that we can. The biggest impact we all have is our vote,” Jenkins told USA Today.

The Player’s Coalition is focused like a laser on a ballot initiative called “Florida’s Amendment 4.”

If approved, this would restore voting rights to people convicted of felonies, aside from murder and felony sexual assault, once they served their time.

Former NFL wide receiver Anquan Boldin, who’s the only former player in the Player’s Coalition, is a Florida-native, and is lobbying hard for this amendment to pass.

“It’s something that affects people from different walks of life,” Boldin told USA Today. “It’s not just a black issue, it’s not just a white issue. Speaking to a lot of people (affected), they say they don’t feel like complete or whole citizens again without the right to vote. That says a lot.”

This has been a rough week for Jenkins and The Player’s Coalition. A former member of the coalition, Carolina safety Eric Reid, verbally assaulted Jenkins before last Sunday’s Panthers-Eagles game. Reid called Jenkins “a sellout” and “a neo-colonialist” since the Eagles’ star was with a $90 million agreement with the NFL that would benefit social causes the coalition endorses.

“I believe Malcolm capitalized on the situation,” Reid explained. “He co-opted the movement that was started by Colin to get his organization funded. It’s cowardly. He sold us out.”

Jenkins has chosen to take the high road following Reid’s attack.

“I’m not going to get up here and say anything negative about that man,” Jenkins said of Reid. “I respect him. I’m glad he has a job. I’m glad he’s back in the league. I’ll leave it like that.”

Jenkins has moved on from that tiff, and is now focused on making an impact on election day, with the Player’s Coalition’s get-out-to-vote initiative.

“This is the way to make our voices heard the loudest,” Jenkins said.”

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
