NY Jets Coach Just Created a Major New Rule For His Anti-American Players Who Want To Protest At Games

Published

on

The start of the preseason for the National Football League coincided with a massive racial riot in Charlottesville, Virginia. Perhaps this was a coincidence, but maybe not. However, now the deadly incident has set a precedence of protest before every football game this season.

What happened in Charlottesville reignited the fire that Colin Kaepernick started last season, that many America-loving sports enthusiasts wished went away with this racist player. Several pro sports players have already proven their intent to mix politics with the game.

After a weekend of protests both on and off the field, the league commissioner, Roger Goodell, came forward at the start of the season to set the tone for the season. Rather than condoning these divisive actions that have no place in sports, he put the problem on the fans to be more “understanding” of the message these millionaire athletes think they are sending about oppression.

Since he wouldn’t take a stand and stop this before it spiraled out of control, it became up to each individual team coach to decide what to do to protect their organization.

A wave of backlash is coming from fed-up fans who want to watch a game and not a stupid protest. Many spectators have already sworn off this football season by boycotting the game since the commissioner refuses to stop the sideline antics.

Although a couple coaches have spoken out against these anti-American antics (Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers), there are some who are siding with the point that these protesting athletes want to make.

The New York Jets’ Coach Todd Bowles supports this message and has even gone as far as to enable players who want to protest by stating a new National Anthem “rule.”

Although no Jets player has indicated a desire to protest at games, their coach has taken a preemptive approach to say if they want to do so, they are more than welcome to – he’s not going to stop them.

The “rule” is that there essentially isn’t one stopping highly-paid professional athletes on this team from doing whatever they choose. There should be since they are part of a team and their actions affect the group as well as the business.

WHIO reports:

New York Jets coach Todd Bowles will not stand in the way of any of his players protesting during the national anthem.

No Jets players have indicated that they would opt to not stand during the performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” as then-San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick did last season. But Bowles made it clear that those actions would be each player’s prerogative.

“It’s their individual right,” the coach said after practice Wednesday. “We don’t have a rulebook on what’s right to protest and not protest. You don’t know those things until the course of time, whether it’s sitting for the anthem, whether it’s raising your fist, whether it’s speaking out, whether it’s the Walk to Washington who is to say whose protest is good or bad?”

Bowles is correct that it’s each person’s right to protest if they wish or make whatever statement publicly that they feel is important. However, that’s not the issue with players protesting in a sport. With the position they are given, they have a responsibility as a role model. Have an opinion, but don’t disrespect our flag and country that real heroes have died to protect.

Bowles clearly sees it differently as he explained later in his interview on the matter.

“As a football team, politics and people are human — they’re part of it — so you can’t say what’s good or bad,” Bowles said, according to WHIO. “I’m sure mostly everybody — I know I’m against racism, segregation, and all that other stuff — but how do we come to an answer? I don’t have that answer. How do we come to a common ground? I don’t have that answer.”

The coach then contradicted himself in saying that the debate on this issue “needs to stop.” Stopping the debate does not mean encouraging one side by giving players free reign to protest – that only perpetuates the problem.

“It’s a hell of a debate and a hell of a topic. It needs to stop,” Bowles said. “I don’t have the answers to that, but who is to say whose protest is good or bad? That’s just the way they feel and that’s their right to express it.”

They can make their statements any way they please off the field since it’s selfish to use their platform in this way. It compromises the reputation of the team, franchise, and maybe even some sponsors. Just as most employees can’t express their divisive opinions in the workplace, sports stars are no different.

BREAKING: Vonn Out Of Olympics Less Than 24 Hrs After Trashing Trump – Her Career Is Officially Over

Published

on

The last 48 hours have been particularly rough for Olympic alpine skier Lindsey Vonn. Ever since she decided to use her public platform to slam our president, she’s suffered the recourse of that really bad decision. She should have learned from the immense fallout in the NFL but refused to. Now, Donald Trump has just gotten the ultimate revenge on the athlete who could be forcibly removed from the 2018 Olympics. Her goals of coming home with another gold medal have just been shattered by her own doing and it didn’t take too long to realize the ramifications.

It’s strange how athletes have no problem using Trump to bring attention to themselves by making such bold public statements, for how much they hate him. What’s even odder, is that they never seem to learn their lesson and can’t stop themselves from slandering him, regardless of the massive ramifications. The latest “victim” of this stupidity is Vonn who just got what she earned when she opened her mouth and said, “Well, I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president,”  according to CNN.

Less than 24 hours after a boycott of her sponsors was initiated, Vonn suffered a bigger, devastating blow.

Reuters reports:

American Lindsey Vonn was injured after finishing the World Cup Super G race in St Moritz on Saturday while Switzerland’s Lara Gut crashed halfway down the course.

Vonn, four-times overall World Cup champion and the finest woman skier of her generation, fell to the ground grimacing as she slowed down after the finishing line and she staggered away with what appeared to be either a hip or back injury.

Vonn spent just under an hour in the medical treatment tent before being escorted to a waiting car and driven away. The 33-year-old walked the few metres to the car with great difficulty.

An ambulance was initially called but was not needed.

The U.S. team said on Twitter that Vonn “compressed her back on the fifth gate, skied through pain but didn’t have the power to push. She was evaluated by the physio and doctor in the tent. Further information to come.”

It’s an unfortunate injury that could prevent her from participating in the winter Olympics, which some are seeing as nearly instant karma for coming out and attacking Trump in her initial interview. Vonn is no stranger to pain and recovery, having just spent the last couple years rehabilitating, training, and getting in condition for this Olympic competition after enduring major injuries from her last race.

This is the second blow to the Gold Medalist this week, suffered in the immediate aftermath of her tactless remarks about President Trump.

Fans are already responding to the comments in the same way they did to the National Anthem kneelers in the NFL. A trending hashtag #BoycottUnderArmour has already picked up a lot of steam since she made her anti-Trump statements. We’ve already seen that this is more than words. Pro-Trump Americans will adamantly stand by our president and do exactly as they say they will – boycott a brand, a sport, an event, and anything else that condones anti-American attitudes.

“So UnderArmour wants to attract more #BoycottUnderAmour attention with Lindsey Vaughn? Ok you got it! #BoycottUnderArmour,”  another user by the name “The Warden” posted.

If Red Bull, Under Armour, Hershey’s, and a list of other big brands she represents want to save their good names, they better get this alpine skier to leave politics out of the sport. It’s not going to end well for her or these sponsors if she continues down this steep path, nor is it worth wasting everything she’s worked hard at accomplishing to say such disgusting things. It’s truly astounding these talented athletes are willing to risk so much just to say something stupid.

Let’s also not forget that Vonn is really not in a position to criticize others who she considered to be morally depraved, as one commenter on Breitbart’s story pointed out:

“Nude photo shooting Lindsey who dated drug-addled philandering Tiger Woods now appoints herself a paragon of American virtue? You want to shoot your mouth off and enter politics baby, run for office. You want to suck my tax dollars on the Olympic team and represent me… you keep your mouth shut and focus on skiing, maybe you can win a medal for a change??”

The Olympics is a time and a place where Americans come together and root for the same team. That should have been the message that Vonn shared going into the games, instead of a divisive one. It’s proof that despite their claim of Trump being the divider, they are truly the ones preventing opposing sides from mending as they perpetuate the hate.

Trump Just Got Ultimate Revenge On Lindsey Vonn Who Trashed Him – She Could Be OUT Of Olympics!

Melania Rushes To Hospital And Makes A Miracle Happen – Is Grossly Attacked Before She Makes It Home

Published

on

Melania Trump has a lot on her plate all the time, as a very hands-on mother of a young son, and First Lady of the United States. Both roles come with far more responsibilities than people realize or give her credit for, but that she takes very seriously. She’s kept a very limited staff to keep her costs to taxpayers small, but also because she wants to be personally attentive to all things on her plate.

This time of year is especially busy for a person in her position, with all the preparations and celebrations of the season. However, she dropped it all to do what’s now become one of her most incredible legacies as first lady. This includes conducting a miracle at a children’s hospital that will forever be remembered by who was directly impacted by this blessing. The stark contrast between the former and the current first lady is abundantly clear in these pictures from her hospital visit and what she accomplished while there. Melania has proved that nothing comes before her compassion as she wears her heart on her sleeve and gives it to anyone and everyone who has a need.

Melania was seen with her signature smile and impeccable smile as she visited the Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C. Hours after returning home from flood-torn Houston, TX, she went from one compassionate effort to the next. She took time out of her day to spend it where she loves, around sick kids stuck in a sterile hospital, which is no place to be during the holidays. She read The Polar Express to these kids who loved to be in her warm presence as much as she enjoyed their company. It’s clear by these pictures that the feelings of love were mutual and genuine. However, she was immediately attacked before even making it back home for on thing she said while there that liberals were quick to contort into a completely different meaning other than how it was intended.

The children had the opportunity to ask the first lady whatever they wanted and the questions were as you’d expect from little ones. They wanted to know her favorite food, favorit Christmas carol, as well as where she would spend the holidays if she could pick just one place. Her answer to this latter question sent liberals into a slander mission, using it against her in the worst way possible.

Like the question, Melania’s answer was innocent and probably not different than what any of her detractors would say.

“If she could spend the holidays anywhere in the world, Melania Trump says she’d take her family to a deserted, tropical island,” this Chicago Tribune reported. “The first lady revealed her wish Thursday during a Christmastime visit with patients and staff at Children’s National hospital in the nation’s capital as she continued a holiday tradition begun more than 60 years ago by first lady Bess Truman.”

Leave it to liberals to detract from something awesome a member of the Trump family does by creating a scandalous side show to make it look like Melania hate being the first lady and desperately wants to escape. Moments after her comments came out, the Internet went into overdrive with their conspiracy theories over a very simple, and common answers. She simply said she wanted some rest and relaxation, like anyone would, and their attack proved why she needs and deserves a deserted island vacation.

People.com reports:

Melania Trump isn’t exactly helping to tamp down talk of her being miserable in the White House.

Just a week after President Donald Trump issued a tweet denying claims that Melania had dreaded her husband winning the 2016 presidential election and didn’t want to be first lady, Melania said something that many have interpreted to illustrate her misery.

On Thursday, during her visit to the Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C., Melania was asked by a 10-year-old boy where she’d most like to spend the upcoming holiday.

And to Twitter’s amusement, the first lady replied, “I would spend my holidays on a deserted island, a tropical island ― with my family.”

“Melania Trump’s Christmas wish is for her family to go to a deserted island. Funny, that was mine, too” one Twitter user wrote.

While another said: “I have a feeling a lot of Americans are wishing for the exact same thing.”

But not all Twitter users were so convinced that Melania wanted to take her husband along with her.

Replying to one Twitter user who asked about starting a fundraising campaign for her and her husband, another wrote, “I’m pretty sure she didn’t invite him into the fantasy.”

Not a single liberal was in sight at the children’s hospital helping. They only showed up in comments to critize our incredible first lady for something simple she said that they twisted out of control. Perhaps they should learn from her example of compassion rather than ripping her apart over every innopcuous thing.
