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?”

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

Published

* By

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

Published

...

* By

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.
