0 9

Vice President Mike Pence walked out on his home-state NFL Indianapolis Colts Sunday when members of the opposing 49ers knelt for the national anthem disrespecting the flag.

Pence later posted a statement which read:

“I left today’s Colts game because President Trump and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem. At a time when so many Americans are inspiring our nation with their courage, resolve, and resilience, now, more than ever, we should rally around our Flag and everything that unites us.”

This is sure to make liberals furious!

“While everyone is entitled to their own opinions, I don’t think it’s too much to ask NFL players to respect the Flag and our National Anthem,” he continued. “I stand with President Trump, I stand with our soldiers, and I will always stand for our Flag and National Anthem.”

While a quarterback for the 49ers last year, Colin Kaepernick sat or kneeled during the national anthem last season to bring more attention to the killings of black men by police officers. The protests have grown this season.

Some criticized Trump and Pence for the walkout, with Hawaii Democratic Sen. Brian Schatz tweeting, “Wait. This was orchestrated to make a point? That’s not an inexpensive thing to do.”

Pence, the former governor of Indiana, earlier posted a picture of himself and his wife Karen Pence at the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, he in a Colts hat and shirt and the second lady sporting a team jersey.

For the second week in a row, the 49ers had more than 20 players kneeling during the national anthem with their hands over their hearts. Teammates stood behind the kneeling players with one hand on a kneeling teammate’s shoulder and the other over their hearts.

The Colts wore black T-shirts with the words “We Will” on the front and “Stand for equality, justice, unity, respect, dialogue, opportunity” on the back for the second straight week. The players stood with their arms locked during the anthem.

The pool reporter with the vice president had been told to stay outside the stadium and that Pence may leave the game early.

It was interesting that some media outlets acted like the issue was waning, even as the boycotts are steadily growing, with a HUGE Veterans Day Boycott on the horizon. Ratings are again at an all time low and NFL favorability ratings are lower than soccer. The NFL has basically been knocked off of the “favorite sport” pedestal.

There is a major Veterans weekend NFL Football Boycott Planned. Click here for details.

The left has had an anti-American slant for decades. We are seeing the results, within this new generation of football players, of that slant being shoved through our schools. These morons actually believe that this great country is systematically racist. They believe that our law enforcement is systematically racist. They think this, as they cash their million dollar paychecks and live lives very few in the world, or even throughout history, have even dreamed of.

Well they’re wrong. That flag still stands for freedom and EVERY citizen in this country enjoys unprecedented freedom. There is no systematic racism, anywhere. In fact, on the street, racism was at an all time low…until OBAMA!

Bunch of whiny brats. Period!
