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 locally oriented website CWBChicago provides a valuable instructional video its readers in fashionable, upscale Chicago neighborhoods who (quite realistically) fear the ongoing predation by gangs running rampant elsewhere in the city, making it the murder capital of America.

The Democrats and their media allies did everything they could to defeat Trump´s tax cuts and reforms. They continually lied to the public in a bid to make them believe that less than half of the taxpayers would actually get cuts and that the bill was meant to benefit only big, rich corporations. Therefore, we got all sorts of articles, obviously fed to journalists by left-wing think-tanks and Democratic politicos, claiming that the tax cuts aren´t good or aren´t performing as promised. So, two weeks into a ten-year program, we are now hearing whining that all the promises of the broad-based

Why California is the

An excellent op-ed in the LA Times today by Kerry Jackson on why California - with its liberal politics and generous welfare system - is the "poverty capital of America." (snip) From 1992 to 2015, state and local governments spent nearly $1 trillion to help the poor. The state, with 12% of the American population, is home today to about one in three of the nation’s welfare recipients. Jackson then reaches the not so astonishing conclusion: "The generous spending, then, has not only failed to decrease poverty; it actually seems to have made it worse." One of the big reasons for this

Our first step in responding to the fake news firestorm about what Trump did or didn´t say about some African countries is to figure out what Trump actually said. Two leakers say he used the term "s---holes" to describe Haiti and African countries. However, the only person corroborating that as this is being written is a Democrat. Given that Harry Reid gleefully admitted to lying about Mitt Romney not paying taxes, it´s not irrational to question that Democrat´s veracity. We also know that the leakers were willing to hurt the U.S. in order to gain a partisan political advantage. The leakers knew

Note to Fusion GPS: If you´re going to mouth off to the media and ignore the public record, you´d better be prepared to have your confidential documents subpoenaed. That´s the takeaway from last week´s ruling by Judge Richard J. Leon, district court judge from the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, denying Fusion GPS´s request for a preliminary injunction against TD Bank. The injunction would have stopped the bank from complying with a subpoena for bank documents served by the House Intelligence Committee relating to the oppo research firm´s financial transactions with media and political clients from the period

It´s a shocking claim made by a political insider: the Deep State is so opposed to draining the swamp that it will, if necessary, kill President Trump to prevent it. Roger Stone, a longtime Trump adviser and confidant, certainly knows his way around Washington, having worked as a senior campaign aide to Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and Senator Bob Dole as well as having held many other political positions. This proximity to the Deep State is what makes his claim, expressed in a recent wide-ranging interview with The New American magazine´s Alex Newman, that much more eyebrow-raising.

There was Oprah Winfrey at the Golden Globes, with her big glasses and 2020 visions of a presidential run, speaking to the greatest collection of sexual predators and their enablers pontificating about the rights of women in an industry where not long ago these same people, led by the pompous and condescending Meryl Streep, gave a standing ovation and an award to director Roman Polanski, child rapist. Oprah didn´t mention Polanski, or Harvey Weinstein, or Bill Clinton, or why she didn´t use the show that made her rich and famous to condemn predators such as these and the Hollywood culture that

WASHINGTON- President Donald Trump relentlessly congratulates himself for the healthy state of the U.S. economy, with its steady growth, low unemployment, busier factories and confident consumers.But in the year since Trump´s inauguration, most analysts tend to agree on this: The economy remains essentially the same sturdy one he inherited from Barack Obama.Growth has picked up, but it´s not yet clear if it can sustain a faster expansion. Hiring and wage growth actually slowed slightly from Obama´s last year in office. Consumers and businesses are much more optimistic, but their spending has yet to move meaningfully higher.

Republicans are slamming Democratic Sen. Cory Booker for “mansplaining” to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in a sharp and one-sided exchange Wednesday before a Senate committee. The New Jersey lawmaker blasted Nielsen´s "silence and amnesia" after failing to get the response he sought on her recollection of statements President Trump made in a meeting last week. Booker´s hostile tone prompted Republican National Committee Rapid Response Director Michael Ahrens to invoke the millennial term for males talking down to women.

A crazed, bug-eyed Cory Booker, junior senator from New Jersey, blasted Department of Homeland Security secretary Kristjen Nielsen during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday on immigration. Booker became so unhinged in his staged outrage that he repeatedly threatened Nielsen, with clenched fists pointed in her direction. Equal to Booker´s overt violation of Nielsen´s right to be treated without hostility and intimidation was the deranged content of his tirade. Nielsen had stated earlier she did not hear the president say the "s-hole" word at last week´s White House meeting on DACA. Booker went ballistic and accused Nielsen of covering up

Men can now look forward to a liberated future of wearing dresses. One such fashion designer, Alejandro Gomez Palomo of Spain, is helping to rush in that new era. According to the 25-year-old Palomo, whose public appearance looks as if Dracula spent a weekend at Liberace´s house, gender fluidity is a way of life he hopes that future men can share. In an interview with AFP, Palomo likened his fashion revolution to the ones ushered by Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent in the 20th century. "Chanel liberated women (after World War I) by dressing them in male fabrics like tweed,"

Pope Francis has conferred the title of “Commander of the Pontifical Equestrian Order of St. Gregory the Great” on Lilianne Ploumen, a Dutch politician and vocal agitator for abortion rights. Last year, Ploumen founded a pro-abortion organization called She Decides, which offers funding and support for international NGOs that provide, facilitate or campaign for abortion. In an email to the Catholic Herald, Ms. Ploumen said that she was “very honoured” by the pontifical medal, which was sent via the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs last month. In an interview with Dutch radio, Ploumen said she views the honor as a

Obama’s current office, which is run by former de facto President Valerie Jarrett, is just a mile or so from the White House. It is at that location one sees a daily procession of donors, political operatives, party affiliates (BOTH Democrat and Republican) media friends (of which there are many) and more shadowy figures representing a myriad of foreign interests. And each day this office and its two primary inhabitants – Obama and Jarrett, are asked the same question: WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT TRUMP? Obama being Obama, with his solar-system-sized ego intact, has been promising to do

Wednesday on CNN’s “New Day,” Dr. Sanjay Gupta, the network’s chief medical correspondent, proclaimed that based on President Donald Trump’s coronary calcium scores going back to the previous decade, Trump has heart disease. Gupta’s diagnosis came a day after Trump’s doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr. Ronny Jackson, offered his assessment of Trump’s health at a White House press briefing. “When you look at the findings you just put up there, Alisyn — this coronary calcium score is a score a lot of cardiologists use to try and be predictive and be proactive,” Gupta said. “And if the number gets up

CNN´s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta said Wednesday that he believes tests reveal that President Trump has heart disease. Gupta said dating back to 2009, President Trump started to have "these tests that are actually looking for the presence of calcium in the blood vessels that lead to the heart." "Steadily, up until just this past week when he had it performed again, those numbers have gone up," he said. "When they get to a certain range ... that means he has heart disease." Gupta then talked about his interaction Tuesday with President Trump´s doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr.

After leaving office, President Ronald Reagan created the Ronald Reagan Freedom Award to recognize individuals who have fought to spread liberty worldwide. Nancy Reagan continued the tradition after her husband’s death, and in 2008 she bestowed the honor on human rights icon Natan Sharansky, who credited Reagan’s strong defense of freedom for his own survival in Soviet gulags. Reagan recognized that as leader of the free world, his words carried enormous weight, and he used it to inspire the unprecedented spread of democracy around the world. President Donald Trump does not seem to understand that his rhetoric and actions reverberate in

Microwaves are as damaging to the environment as cars and users must be taught how to cook more efficiently, scientists say. The ovens are responsible for 7.7 million tons of the ­carbon dioxide pumped out from the EU each year — the equivalent of 6.8 million cars. Researchers say they are fueling global warming with consumers overcooking food to blame. Microwaves account for the largest percentage of sales of all types of oven in the EU, with numbers set to reach 135 million by 2020. But scientists at the University of Manchester — the first to assess the environmental impact

In an exclusive interview with Utah Gov. Gary Herbert, FOX Business was told that Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, will likely receive the backing of mega-donors, not just within Utah, but across the country as he gets ready to announce his candidacy. “He’s given me every indication that he’s running. He’ll have a lot of support from the wealthy people that he knows from when he ran for president. The people on the same list of donors that he had before for 2012, including those from Utah, is a very good place for him to raise money,” Herbert, a

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Tuesday condemned President Trump’s combative attitude toward the press and called on Congress to protect journalists worldwide. “Whether Trump knows it or not, these efforts are being closely watched by foreign leaders who are already using his words as cover as they silence and shutter one of the key pillars of democracy,” McCain said in an opinion piece published in The Washington Post. McCain called the Trump administration’s treatment of journalists “inconsistent at best and hypocritical at worst,” particularly when it comes to condemning attacks on the press abroad. McCain cited foreign leaders who have
