Kneeling NFL Players Suddenly Need Help After Disrespectful Act – Get PERFECT Response From Police

As we reported last week, during the first pre-season Cleveland Browns game a group of ungrateful elitist millionaire NFL players pulled a Colin Kaepernick and decided not to stand for the national anthem. But now the city’s first responders are firing back!

The Cleveland police department, fire department, and EMS are now refusing to hold the American flag at the first Browns game this season after 12 players took a knee during the national anthem. EMS union president Daniel Nemeth explained that he as an 8-year veteran in the Marine Corps will not take part in this disrespect of our nation’s colors. He also added that anyone who decides to take part is merely condoning the actions of these anti-American football players.

Police union president Steve Loomis later added that if the ownership of the Browns and the NFL are going to allow that type of disrespect to happen they can’t then come to us begging for help with the flag and expect us to be there ready and willing.

National Anthem history and full verses:

The Star Spangled Banner”, was ordered played at military and naval occasions by President Woodrow Wilson in 1916, but was not designated the national anthem by an Act of Congress until 1931.

The words were written in 1814 by Francis Scott Key, who had been inspired by the sight of the American flag still flying over Fort McHenry after a night of heavy British bombardment. The text was immediately set to a popular melody of the time, “To Anacreon in Heaven.”

The National Anthem consists of four verses. On almost every occasion only the first verse is sung.

Oh, say can you see by the dawn’s early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
‘Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps’ pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave’
From the terror of flight and the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

NFL GM’s statement on Colin Kaepernick’s disrespect:

That’s according to one NFL general manager who this week told Sporting News his team chose not to sign Kaepernick due to the issue of the QB being a “distraction.”

“It doesn’t have to do with the protests — if it did, then teams would be cutting the players who are standing or kneeling during the anthem,” the GM said, speaking on the condition of anonymity. “The league is filled with guys who are protesting the same exact way who are on rosters.

“I know our roster has players who have protested. That doesn’t affect if we sign them.”

The only way this garbage will end is when the NFL loses enough viewers. Dallas Cowboys’ coach had an incredible solution for the problem last month when he stated: “You don’t stand, you don’t get paid.”

Please share if you will boycott the NFL until this disrespect stops….
