A modest proposal for NFL fans:
Be a flash mob

American Thinker, by Patricia McCarthy

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 9/24/2017 6:17:36 AM

The recent behavior of a number of spoiled, privileged, ungrateful NFL players is unacceptable to most Americans, NFL fans or not. (snip) It would be so satisfying if a group of patriotic fans to have at the ready a flash mob of singers at a stadium game. If the players "take a knee" to show their disdain for the flag and the national anthem, these talented souls would wait until just before the kick-off and then stand up and belt out the national anthem themselves. Chances are hundreds of those in attendance would join them. Then they would exit the

This is completely do-able, even today, if the word gets out. Watch the video and notice how everyone else stops what they are doing and listens as the National Anthem is sung in a hotel by a flash mob.

An even louder protest would be,"just don´t show up in the first place"

Rudity in the service of killing cops should end the career of any professional sports figure. Very important not to patronize rude people and people who think killing cops is a good idea. Any defense of BLM just exes you off my play list. No time for trash.

October 15 - The Ides of October. All law abiding and America loving citizens shut off the TV and refuse to watch NFL. Write off your tickets for that day since it will probably be a lousy game anyway.

Hey, if this goes on much longer without consequences, college teams will be doing it. And the flaky university administrations will allow it - even encourage it. Note well that last week sometime a PeeWee Football team ´took the knee´ - most kids under 8. Total indoctrination - the discussion was that this was what to do because white cops were killing black people. No parent objected that I know of.

MLB Playoffs. World Series. NHL. Then pitchers and catchers report to Spring training. I´m down with it. Haven´t seen one NFL game yet, and will not. ESPN has not been on in my home in over six months. I do part time work for an NFL franchise, attendant in the parking lot. Get first-hand glimpses of the fan base. I subtly push my agenda of recognizing the pointlessness of this league with all it´s PCBS. I Love reading the stories of tanking attendance and dangerously low TV audience. Strength in numbers erased a Clinton presidency, and it will continue to deliver us these victories in the infected marketplace where Leftism wants to mark it´s territory. If this NFL thing (I´ll call it a boycott) succeeds, we march forward proudly and confidently towards our next challenge. We are 63,000,000 strong. Keep praying and do not walk away from the fight.

Watched some man on the street re: Fox this a.m. on this subject. Though the majority agree with freedom of speech et al., they are also disgusted that players making millions are acting like spoiled brats, protesting who knows what. Those all for the Kaporniks etc. spouted idiocies like this is a Church and State issue!!!!!!! Most egregious, however, are the Godells and others who say nary a word when players beat their wives, rape their girlfriends or have massive bar brawls of their own making. THAT is o.k. I hope this hits them all in the pocketbook---they deserve it! And it seems to be the only thing they understand.

From this day forward, not one dime of my money goes to buying pro sports tickets. My TV will not be tuned to "the game." Not one minute will be devoted to rehashing over coffee the next morning. (Fortunately, this will not require a change in my lifestyle.) For the life of me, I do not understand this obsession, but spoiled one-per-center players´ boorish behavior certainly continues to illustrate my longstanding conviction that football players are not too bright, and remain uncivilized, despite their undeserved wealth.

Don´t forget merchandising revenues. Never buy any product with a team logo or NFL logo. Also, while letter-writing does little good with politicians, businesses are another matter. Swamp the NFL and the local franchises with letters plainly stating that you observed xyz team taking a knee and will no longer watch that team on TV or travel to the stadium for the occasional visit. Inundate their mail rooms.

Or, go to the stadium but stay outside with your friends and tailgate. The NFL already made money on the sale of your ticket but they won´t make any additional money selling beer and food.

And for those of us who never go to the games, stop purchasing official NFL merchandise.

When Roger Goodell asks for respect for the players and DeMaurice Smith says they are looking out for the well-being and safety of their players, they need to explain to us about Aqib Talib

Why was it all right with you that Aqib Talib facemasked Corey Brown in the Super Bowl in 2016?

- 15 yards penalty for the facemasking
- 15 yards penalty for taunting
- $26,000 approx for a fine
- Placed on the list of the top 100 NFL players in 2016

You guys were not looking out for Corey Brown and it was a clear message you were okay with what Aqib Talib did.

The pity of this political protest behavior is that it negates the good community work which some of the players do and in this respect are good role models. The owners seem afraid of disciplining their employees, almost intimidated by them and by the thought of losing out on winning games, thereby losing their principles.

Let´s make it easy - Papa John´s is the official pizza of the NFL. Don´t buy their pizza on October 15th - but first a national blitz to ensure this gets sufficient publicity and national level support. They are the target because they are more easily affected. "Real patriots" can sit outside the local pizza outlets with signs declaring the one-day boycott, and the reason. Very simply, that Papa supports on-field political action by the NFL, commissioner, owners and players. Please support the boycott today.

One "sponsor" hit with an effective and reasonable boycott is a shot across the bow of others, very easily organizable (one person per store can make it happen), and has local effect for TV to take interest and cover, i.e. the franchisee is taking the hit for Papa and his millionaire QB partner, who is also plugging other stuff on TV.

If you´re serious...get out your markers, a piece of cardboard and a lawn chair.

Pardon me, but this will be solved through the influence of the sports betting community. The NFL is a gambling bonanza for the casino´s sports books and, ultimately,the mob.

Like Castro nationalizing the Cuban casinos, the syndicate put the pressure on Kennedy to fix it. (see Bay of Pigs, Grassy knoll)

If the NFL seriously falters, pressure will be brought to the forefront from the "back room lobby" to stop the PC crap and putt butts in the seats!

Does anyone even know what they are protesting? Do they even know? If you must protest, do it in a grown up manner. I suggest that these over paid crybabies walk a day in a soldiers shoes in a combat zone. Maybe then they´ll understand what the American Anthem and flag really do mean.

As a long time NFL fan, I have had enough. I am using the "flash" button on my remote, and getting my entertainment elsewhere. Since the bulk of NFL revenue comes via TV, cable, and advertising royalties, that is far more effective than whatever happens in the stands.

College football was exciting and entertaining yesterday. As long as their players respect my flag and country, I will continue to watch.

This is war. As long as our entertainers protest my country, I will boycott them. All of them. That is a small sacrifice for me, compared with the sacrifices of those who put everything on the line for our flag, anthem, and country.

The protest day should be called " Patrick Tillman Day.

Pat Tillman"
American football player and soldier

Patrick Daniel Tillman (November 6, 1976 – April 22, 2004) was a professional American football player in the National Football League (NFL) who left his sports career and enlisted in the United States Army in June 2002 in the aftermath of the September 11 attacks. His service in Iraq and Afghanistan, and subsequent death, were the subject of much media attention.

Tillman joined the Army Rangers and served several tours in combat before he died in the mountains of Afghanistan." In the fog of war, inexplicable things happen, Patrick died from friendly fire.

Patrick´s personal views about the war were obvious. US Troops were fighting a war that could not be won...thanks to Congress. But he joined because he felt combat on a football field was nothing, and the money ill gotten gains when free troops were dying on the battle field.

There is a big difference between getting hit on a football field and getting up and going back to the huddle.

When you get hit on a battle field you may come back home in a box.

I expect the NFL to play hardball. And that the MSM will side with them in every way it can.

The "Official Story" will almost certainly be that boycotts, protests, etc. have had only a trivial effect.

So the NFL can be punished a little but it will be years before they hurt much.

Some teams get - or used to - 100% of parking revenue. Unless it is already prepaid for the season don´t park at the stadium if you feel you must see the game.

The other faction is very progressive, if not outright socialist younger, far left, and heavily minority, usually comitted to identity politics.

Jimmy Kimmel’s angry political rants have painted him into a corner.

Kimmel also is starting to realize that this political commentary stuff is harder than just making middlebrow jokes. People take him seriously, and suddenly there are new expectations the former co-host of The Man Show – that seemed to be aimed at adolescent male beer-drinkers – realizes he has no chance of fulfilling: “I’m nobody’s

Hillary Clinton will never let on any doubts about the damage Harvey Weinstein has done to her career, her husband’s image, or the prospects for the political machine of hangers on, funders, and operatives. The designated successor is her daughter Chelsea, who, whatever her other merits, is not nearly as good a congenital liar as her mother, much less Bill Clinton. So, when the UK Daily Mail ambushed her at Northeastern University attending a Clinton Global Initiative University event and asked her if the Clinton Foundation would return the $100,000 it received from Weinstein, she fled.

Hats off to James O’Keefe and Project Veritas (donate here – please!) for another video that is rocking a major progressive institution to its foundations. (snip) So blatant is the self-described misbehavior that the Times tasked its Vice President of “Comms,” Danielle Rhoades Ha, with a response: Based on what we’ve seen in the Project Veritas video, it appears that a recent hire in a junior position violated our ethical standards and misrepresented his role. In his role at The Times, he was responsible for posting already published video on other platforms and was never involved in the creation or editing

Former President George W. Bush offered an unmistakable denunciation of Trumpism Thursday without mentioning the president by name, urging citizens to oppose threats to American democracy. “Bigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication,” Bush warned in remarks at the Bush Institute’s Spirit of Liberty event in New York. By chance, Bush was standing in the same spot at the Time Warner Center where former President Barack Obama made a similar plea for democracy and American leadership in late September, shortly after President Donald Trump had finished a belligerent, isolationist speech to the United Nations

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says players should stand for the national anthem, speaking out amid the furor over some players´ protests before games. "We believe everyone should stand for the national anthem. That´s an important part of our policy," Goodell said in a press conference Wednesday in New York. But Goodell said he would not commit to making a rule stating players must stand for the anthem. "Our players will state to you publicly they are not doing this in any way to be disrespectful to the flag," Goodell said. He said the league is "not looking to get into politics, but what

George W. Bush hinted Thursday at his dissatisfaction with Donald Trump, complaining in a New York City speech that ´bullying and prejudice´ has become a caustic norm in American public life. At an event hosted by the George W. Bush Institute, the 43rd U.S. president rattled off a thinly veiled litany of complaints about the current commander-in-chief, focusing on both his tone and his isolationist policy choices. ´Our young people need positive role models,´ he said. ´Bullying and prejudice in our public life sets a national tone, provides permission for cruelty and bigotry, and compromises the moral education of children.´

Clinton Scandals: For well over a year now, the progressive left in the Democratic Party have tried hard to sell the idea that, a) Russia meddled in our election, and, b) that it was to the detriment of Hillary Clinton. After nearly a year and a half of investigating, neither appears true. What is true, and now documented, is that Hillary Clinton and her family foundation both benefited handsomely from Russian corruption. Citing federal officials and government documents, The Hill details the Russians´ nuclear-industry corruption here in the U.S., citing extensive evidence that "Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery,

Someone within the Obama administration’s intelligence apparatus made requests to unmask the identity of Americans named in intelligence reports on behalf of Samantha Power, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. That’s what Power told the House Intelligence Committee last week during a closed-door interview. South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy revealed in an interview on Fox News on Tuesday that Power was “emphatic” on the point that someone else in the Obama administration made the unmasking requests that have been attributed to her. Fox News recently reported that Power made approximately 260 unmasking requests — a rate of one per business day

Sen. John McCain exploded on Fox News’ Peter Doocy on Wednesday for asking him if he would oppose everything that President Trump asks him to do. Doocy asked Sen. McCain if his relationship with the president is “so frayed” that McCain would “not support anything that he comes to you and asks for?” McCain snapped, “Why would you say something that stupid? Why would you ask something that dumb?” “My job as a United States senator — you mean I am somehow going to behave in a way that I’m going to block everything because of some personal disagreement?” McCain said incredulously.

Damning new evidence appears to show that Hillary Clinton used her office as Secretary of State to confer benefits to Russia in exchange for millions of dollars in donations to her foundation and cash to her husband. But there’s more. It seems it was all covered up for years by the same three people who are now involved in the investigation of President Donald Trump over so-called Russian “collusion.” (Snip) What’s more, Holder was a member of the “Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States” which approved the uranium sale to the Russians in 2010.

A Massachusetts elementary school has canceled its Halloween events and is celebrating ´black and orange spirit day´ instead. Boyden Elementary School´s principal sent a letter to parents this week saying that it had decided to cancel its traditional Halloween parade on October 31 because it was ´not inclusive of all students´ and was ´difficult´ for many. Without specifying which students the parade excluded, Principal Brendan Dearborn said the school would instead hold a ´black and orange spirit day´.  Children are allowed to dress in those colors but cannot come to school in costume. They are however allowed to wear costumes to an

Meghan McCain gave an interview on Tuesday where she responded to President Trump‘s warning towards her father after his speech against “spurious nationalism.” In a Good Morning America interview with George Stephanopoulos, McCain noted that Trump and her father clearly have different ideas about the best direction of the country. She went on to declare that she’s “exhausted” with the GOP’s infighting and the attacks against her dad after all the challenges he has already faced. “I don’t know if you guys have heard but my father is fighting glioblastoma right now and there’s nothing that could possibly happen or

Judge Andrew Napolitano, Fox News senior judicial analyst, weighed in on the report, telling FOX Business’ Stuart Varney on “Varney & Co.,” “The significance is an FBI acknowledgement that Huma Abedin, Mrs. Anthony Weiner, when she had a top security clearance as the number two assistant to Hillary Clinton when Hillary was Secretary of State, regularly sent copies of sensitive material to her own laptop so she could look at it at night, either knowing or forgetting that her husband had access to it as well.” Napolitano said this gives insight into the State Department’s casual approach to top secret

All of the arrests were made “by Sonoma County on various felony and misdemeanor charges,” according

President Trump lashed out on Twitter against the Florida congresswoman who said he told a soldier’s widow that her husband “must’ve known what he signed up for,’ saying she “fabricated” the account. “Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof). Sad!” Trump wrote on the social messaging site on Tuesday. Rep. Frederica Wilson, a Democrat, said she was riding in the car with Myeshia Johnson, the widow of Army Sgt. La David T. Johnson, who was killed in Niger along with three other comrades, when she got
