Saints Fan Silences NFL Stadium During National Anthem With Sudden Gesture To Stranger

Published

on

This is what America really is, and what Americans really are.

12up has reported that the New Orlean Saints embarrassed the New York Giants on Sunday in New Jersey by beating Eli Manning and his team by a score of 33 to 10 the game wasn’t what really stood out. What really stood out was a gesture by one team fan to another.

A Jets fan who couldn’t stand for the national anthem was propped up by a New Orleans fan in a huge display of kindness and patriotism. Wonder if the players on the field would have done the same?

As people fight on social media and are at each other’s throats because of politics this proves that people are still kind and they still care about one another. This is what America should be, and why it’s so upsetting when overpaid sports stars don’t stand upright for the national anthem.

Sports has always been a uniting force in our nation. No matter who you are, you go into that stadium, sports party or sports bar and you are either a fan of one team or the other. There is no blue or red. We are all just Americans watching sports and rooting for our team. And this is the way it should be.

There is nothing more American than watching a baseball game on a sunny summer’s day or watching a football game on a cold fall night. And when you look at the person sitting next to you-you see that person is the same as you, for at that moment that person is just a fan, just like you.

Let’s hope we can someday all be like this on a day to day basis just because of the fact we are Americans. Like we were during those days after 9/11/2001 but without there having to be a national tragedy.

Here is more via AZ Central:

“The world is an angry place. The playground of sports is now part of the bonfire, no longer immune, no longer a safe haven.

The president is picking a fight with the NFL. The FBI used wiretaps to expose college basketball. And on Sunday afternoon, nervous billionaires will be scanning the stands of their football stadiums, wondering if paying customers actually make good on their threats of boycott.

It takes a lot to scare NFL owners. But the league is becoming as divided as our country, caught between the patriotism they packaged and sold and the athletes/golden goose they must protect.

On the surface, this might seem like the story of the American flag, its omnipotent power, and what happens when one group tries to possess it or squeeze it too hard. But this is also part of a larger narrative, proving again that sports fans have been changing for years, for better and worse.

Today’s audience wants a spectacle more than they want to be spectators. That explains why Mayweather-McGregor was a smash hit while the real fight of the century (Golovkin-Canelo) was a footnote. It explains why LaVar Ball is still more celebrity than scorned. It explains why my teenage daughter walks around wearing Kurt Cobain clout goggles.

Here we are now. Entertain us.

Sports fans are no longer here to help. They are here for their own benefit. NFL players have been commodified by fantasy football leagues, which has changed the mindset considerably. The fantasy is seductive, where average fans become “owners” and the players now work for them. The humanity of cheering for a person or a team has been reduced to sheer number, and it’s helped trigger a huge societal shift.

According to a brand new poll, 55 percent of Americans now approve of legalized gambling. Less than 25 years ago, 56 percent opposed.

Sports fans no longer need stadiums for a communal experience, a trend that is worrying owners in all professional sports. NFL games are becoming increasingly dangerous for those in attendance. Baseball fans will soon have to deal with expanded netting to shield them from foul balls. And NBA fans are afraid to buy tickets lest a star player decides to take the night off.

Meanwhile, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver says future broadcasts could become more like Twitch, a platform for streaming video games.

He envisions a cluttered screen where a flow of data and constant chatter are packaged around the actual event. While an older generation recoils, Millennials salivate at the coming horizon of multitasking in sports. And if all these conversations can be had online, who needs to attend a game in person?

Over the years, the NFL has seemed impermeable, right down to the shield that serves as the league’s official logo. It has employed felons and those prone to domestic violence. It has spawned a concussion epidemic, where fears of brain damage endanger the future of the sport on a grass-roots level. Reports that Aaron Hernandez had advanced CTE at age 27 is horrifying in scope.

But the core audience never stopped cheering. The spectacle of the NFL – where game days happen once a week, treating fans to tailgate parties and enabling all of their favorite vices – seemed to assure robust attendance for eternity.

Until now. The ongoing flap over player protests and displays of unity have done what all those other issues could not, enraging some fans to the point of absurdity and beyond.

A Pennsylvania fire chief was fired after directing a racial slur at Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin. Another Steelers fan painted a swastika on his team flag. A Titans player received death threats, and so did a singer who took knee after performing the national anthem. And in Baltimore, 35,000 people have signed a petition to remove a statue of Ravens great Ray Lewis, who went down on both knees last weekend.

The vitriol is shocking. It’s tearing at the fabric of sports, where fandom is supposed to galvanize, unite and heal communities. It also proves that no matter how much sports fans have changed in this country, people still want the same thing from their favorite teams:

A break. An escape. A respite from the noise. A chance to check out of reality and get lost in the drama of athletic competition. Sadly, Week 4 in the NFL poses a different question, the kind once deemed unthinkable:

Will fans really tune out America’s favorite sport just to get away from the real world?”

VIDEO: Migrant Caravan That Threatened To ‘Drop-In’ On Trump Tears Down Border Fence, Storms Mexico

Published

on

...

* By

Someone is putting these people up to this, I swear. It’s to close to our midterm election for it to be a coincidence.

Just a few days ago, one of the migrants told Yahoo News that they were going to “drop in” on Trump and that he would have to take them in.

Trump needs to send in the military immediately.

Breitbart is reporting:

“More than 4,000 migrants forced their way into Mexico after storming a border fence with Guatemala.

Video captured by Noticias Telemundo shows the moment when hundreds of migrants force the gate open and rush into Mexico despite officials efforts to keep the migrants out.

Mexican authorities previously vowed to turn back any migrants who did not follow immigration law.

The rush is the latest development for the caravan originating in Honduras, when approximately 1,300 migrants began an organized march to Mexico with some making their way to the U.S. Border.

The caravan caused the Mexican government to announce it would enforce immigration laws and turn back those who did not obtain a visa to travel through country. Despite the threat, the caravan grew in size to more than 4,000, pushing President Donald Trump to state he would remove all financial aid to Central American countries if the migration was not halted.

It remains unclear how many migrants were able to successfully enter Mexico by force.”

The Independent UK reported:

“Migrants in a caravan making its way north through Central America towards the US border have torn down gates and are making their way over a bridge into Mexico – with officials warning the trip will bring swift retribution from the Trump administration.

Young men in the caravan reportedly began on Friday violently tugging at a tall yellow fence in the way of the group before eventually tearing the barrier down. Men, women, and children then began rushing towards the bridge to Mexico that stands about 150 years (137 meters) away.

The fence toppling came just after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray to discuss the caravan, which started in Honduras last weekend.

“It’s a challenge that Mexico is facing, and that’s how I expressed it to Secretary Pompeo,” Mr Videgaray said in a news conference with the US secretary of state.

The Mexican government has asked for assistance from the United Nations refugee agency to help it process migrants arriving on the country’s southern border and seeking refugee status.

Processing those refugee claims could allow the Mexican government to disperse the caravan, and placate President Donald Trump, who is adamantly opposed to allowing any of the individuals into the US.

The caravan that is now at the Mexico border is composed of several thousand Honduran migrants who are seeking to escape violence and poverty in their home country. Mr Videgaray said earlier on Friday that the caravan was composed of some 4,000 people and each could present their claims to enter the country with refugee status.

“We haven’t had a caravan or group of this size seeking refuge at the same time, that’s why we’ve sought the support of the United Nations,” he said on Mexican television.

The Mexican government is taking a different tact with this caravan than a similar one that made its way north earlier this year, similarly drawing anger from Mr Trump.

Unlike that caravan, which made its way into the heartland of Mexico before officials attempted to process claims, the Mexican government this time is focusing on processing the individuals as they arrive on the border.

In response to the advancing caravan, Mr Trump has threatened to instruct the US military to “CLOSE THE SOUTHERN BORDER”, and said that he would cut aid to Central American countries where the migrants are arriving from.

It is not clear if Mr Trump is seriously considering closing the US-Mexico border, and it is not clear that he could conceivably do so, either. But, if he did, experts say that such a closure would have a major impact on the economy and ability of people to travel in and out of the US.”

Watch How Left-Wing Protester Who Harassed 9/11 Widow Reacts When Confronted By Her Large ‘Son’

* By

Oh man, this is the best ever.

Don’t you just love it when angry, hostile left-winger, antifa types turn tail & run when the other side stands up to them.

We need more of this in America!

The Daily Caller is reporting:

Video of a left-wing protester telling an alleged 9/11 widow that her late husband should “rot in the grave” has gone viral.

The harassment of the woman took place in Portland, Oregon, during clashes between Antifa and pro-Trump factions.

The protester screamed at the woman in the video and looked to be ready for a physical confrontation. After the woman said “My husband died in 9/11,” the protester yelled “Good for him! Good. Good. NYPD were a bunch of sodomized — fucking sodomizing immigrants with their bully sticks. Your husband should probably fucking rot in the grave.”

The woman walked on.

However, the leftist protester was not so empowered when a large man approached him and asked, “Did you call my mom out?” (RELATED: Antifa Protesters Block Portland Traffic, Nearly Start Riot During Kimmons Vigil)

The protester said “What?” and then took off running.

“Why are you running?” the man yelled.

There was a standoff between the leftist and far-right protesters, but when a large group of Trump-supporting activists looked to confront him, the man who insulted the widow suddenly lost his nerve.

WATCH:

Extra footage posted on Twitter shows the same man who was harassing the woman earlier running for his life down the street as fast as he could.

A professional skateboarder was mistaken for the man in the video and received death threats.

Oregon Live reported:

Portland professional skateboarder Charlie Wilkins faced violent threats on social media Thursday after video of an Oct. 13 protest went viral that showed an Antifa protester yelling at a woman.

“Your husband, should probably … rot in the grave,” the man rants at the woman, who claimed to be a 9/11 widow.

The man in the video resembles Wilkins, but the skateboarder insists it’s not him.

He and his wife Victoria say they avoid protests and were at a pumpkin patch that day.

“I just think he’s horrible to say that to anybody,” Wilkins told KGW, referring to the protester in the video. “I would never say that to anybody.”

Brandon Farley, who shot the video of the protest, weighed in on Wilkins’ behalf, tweeting:

“I don’t want to ruin an innocent man’s life! Stop this thoughtless tirade, immediately! Get the facts! He’s not the guy in my videos. Keep searching or move on, please.”

Wilkins is a longtime professional skater, and so his image is widely available online, which is likely the reason people made the connection between him and the Antifa protester.”
