America: Watch the Video for the History of the Anthem, and then Read & Share this one, hopefully we can get those who’ve decided to demonstrate their Disrespect for Our National Anthem just might get the message and do something that would truly make a difference.
Will Americans Stand 4 Freedom or Entertainment know your History?
History does Matter.
George Washington stated very clearly what Freedom meant then & should mean now: The American Christian is set apart from all other people in the World as they’ll Die on Their Feet rather than live on their knees. This advice needs to be followed by those who’ve been Blessed with the talent to perform it in a Free Nation, and realize their not heroes, but nothing more than entertainers who entertain us, unlike those who fight to Protect US daily whether in Battle Over Seas the Streets of America fighting Crime, Fires, Floods, Hurricanes, Tornadoes etc. these are the Real Heroes of America.
We the People must show the Respect to Our Real Heroes, not those who entertain us whether on the Field, TV, Stage or Screen. I’d love to see all these athletes and other entertainers Donate the Time to help stop the Real Crimes of Murder, Rape, Robbery, in the very Streets in which these Crimes are committed if they really believe in Justice then go to Chicago to begin with and then as this Cities Death Toll shrinks move onto the next that is if the BLM ( Black Lives Matter ) will allow them to do so, as that’s a movement I and others would gladly support.
We need to remember just how disrespectful this is to all who’ve fought & died to keep us Safe & Free whether here at home or across the seas and if those who’ve benefited the most from that can’t show respect for this then let’s try this idea. They draw their salaries from the viewers & those attending, so if those two categories would stop viewing and attending for say Three Straight Games which is a just 2 Sundays and a Monday they’d get the message quickly, as it’s all about the $$$$$$$$’s for all of them owners & players etc., advertisers can get the message by all just sending them emails stating as long as they do this don’t bother advertising I’m not buying your products, may seem crazy but Standing Up for what’s right is still right, and it only takes the good to sit down for the evil to grow.
NFL RISKS BILLIONS in Tax-Funded Stadiums to Support Black Lives Matter, http://truthfeednews.com/nfl-risks-billions-in-tax-funded-stadiums-to-support-black-lives-matter/
Lets also remember Offensive Tackle Alejandro Villanueva’s action of taking the field garnered a veiled shot from coach Mike Tomlin and respect from defensive end Cameron Heyward. for his decision to reject a national anthem protest by his teammates. NFL fans are rewarding Pittsburgh Steelers’ Alejandro Villanueva in droves purchasing his jersey, for his decision to reject a national anthem protest by his teammates.
Now we’re getting a new take on what happened in the Stadium, so not sure what to believe did he take a stand and now retreats from it, only he knows for certain. Villanueva and his teammates indicated a day later that his presence outside the tunnel actually occurred accidentally rather than by design. He said he had wanted to see the flag before the game but was still outside when the anthem began, at which point he did not want to move. Yet he subsequently felt as if he’d broken ranks.
“Unfortunately, I threw (my teammates) under the bus, unintentionally,” he said. “Every single time I see that picture of me standing by myself, I feel embarrassed.
“We as a team tried to figure it out. Obviously we butchered it. … I’m not gonna pretend I have some kind of righteous voice.”
Now the Fans have to figure out what type of pressure brought this on as fans agreed with what he did and it didn’t look like he was there by accident, you decide.
Americans message is Loud & Clear to the NFL, as over 75% of the NFL Fans don’t agree with the disrespect shown by players.
Record Number of NFL Players Kneel – Here’s The TV Ratings After That Hissy Fit –The Week 2 NFL single-header window delivered an 8.4 rating and 14.5 million viewers on CBS Sunday, down 24% in ratings and viewership from last year on FOX (11.0, 19.2M) and down 14% and 13% respectively from 2015 on CBS (9.8, 16.7M). The 8.4 rating is the lowest for the Week 2 single-header since at least 1998. The first two NFL windows on CBS this season have both declined double-digits to multi-year lows. It appears as the Numbers indicate they may need to rename the NFL to the No Fans League —SportsMediaWatch
The Spoiled Overpaid & Uninformed Players seem to have the owners Love of Money over National Pride figured out, which allows this type of behavior, as I’m not against protest its’ a God Granted Right, but protest the problem which are the Crimes committed in Our Cities not the National Anthem or 99.9% of the Police serving them as the Police Shootings are down Nation wide, so go where the problems exist the Cities the Franchises are in with high crime areas including murders on a daily basis as in Chicago for one example, so go set up some groups to work on them and put your monies where your knees seem to be, it’s hard work to fix these problems and will take a good deal of dedicated time & money, so look at it as a Challenge and set up a game plan that the Owners & Players etc. will all take part in and this includes the Networks who benefit from All the Ad $$$$$’s as well.
