Hurrah for Vice President Mike Pence! As the rich, privileged black men and their white liberal enablers who know first had the value of hard work, and being rewarded for it regardless of their color knelt during the playing of the National Anthem, the Vice President and his crew exited the stadium. As expected, the media lost its mind, and the response to the Vice President’s action was predictable. They all accused the Vice President of pulling a publicity stunt. Like clockwork the mantra ricocheted, and could be heard across the media sphere. If this was a publicity stunt, those Americans who are fed up of seeing the left attempt to portray the country in a negative light, and who are tired of seeing these rich, spoiled millionaires throw tantrums, are pleased with the stunt. There are some causes that are easy to support. These causes are evident to any one with their eyes half way closed, and the average American has no problem standing behind these causes, and supporting them. This is not one of those causes that the NFL players are protesting. In addition people do not go to these games to be bombarded on every side by the politics of those they pay to entertain them. These protests by the players are not a show of solidarity with the rest of the nation in response to some national tragedy. This is an attempt to push leftist politics down the throat of the country, by trampling on the traditions that have always been honored by the people of this country. It is great to see people fight back against the constant onslaught of the left. Thank you Vice President Pence for showing some leadership.
The same media that has been championing the free speech rights of the players, as a reason to bring their politics on the job, are now lamenting the right of the Vice President to protest. Players showing contempt for the country. Trampling traditions, and sticking their middle finger in the faces of their fan base is to be applauded as far as the media is concerned, on the other hand; the Vice President protesting their despicable actions…not so much.
Who can forget earlier in the year when the Vice President showed up to view a play, and the actors self-righteously stopped to lecture the Vice President telling him “We, sir — we — are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents, or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights,… we truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values, and to work on behalf of all of us.” Of course, those actors, like the NFL players had no reason to do what they did, but they did it nevertheless, and they too were praised by the media, but that same media has no tolerance for the Vice President of the United States using his platform to protest what he, and numerous other Americans see as an affront to the country, and the people who have fought and died in its defense.
In the meantime, forty-niners player Eric Reid decided to play the ever reliable race card. We know that when all else has failed, one thing that is as sure as the sun setting in the west, it is that people like these leftist NFL players will always play the victim game. This is what Mr. Reid had to say about the Vice President leaving the game: “He knew our team has had the most players protest, he knew that we were probably going to do it again. This is what systemic oppression looks like-a man with power comes to the game, tweets a couple things out and leaves the game with an attempt to thwart our efforts. Again based on the information I have, that’s the assumption that I make.” Thank you Eric Reid for enlightening us what “systemic racism” is? To be clear, according to you, systemic racism is the Vice President of the United States using his platform to protest your contemptible behavior. To show that he is not a racist, and to remove his oppressor thumb from all those suffering from the systemic racism enforced by the likes of the himself, the Vice President should have simply sat through your display of disdain for the country, and everything would have been fine. Got it! Are these millionaire, cry baby brats serious? Unfortunately they are, and they will continue to get away with this type of nonsense as long as there is no push back, but this is a new era because people are pushing back. These NFL players who have probably never thought of an issue beyond the clichés that they have been fed, willingly offer themselves as pawns in the divide and conquer game played by those whose goal it is to create discord. The response by Vice President Pence is a welcome response to their petulant nonsense, and those Americans who do not share their views applaud him for it.
