    97 Year Old White WWII Vet Kneels in Support of NFL Players Who Refuse To Stand During National Anthem

    It appears his Bolshevik value system is working out its natural course:

    A 97-year-old World War II veteran from Missouri has kneeled in support of protesting NFL players, saying the athletes “have every right to protest.”

    The picture of John Middlemas on one knee and supporting the athletes has become a viral social media sensation.

    The vet’s photo was taken and posted with the #TakeAKnee hashtag by his grandson, Brennan Gilmore, who quoted his 97-year-old grandfather saying, “Those kids have every right to protest.”

    Middlemas has long fought for social justice, supported the civil rights movement and working alongside black servicemen when in the military, the Springfield News-Leader reported.

    If they want to protest fine, but dock their gameday paycheck. They are there in a professional capacity and should behave accordingly. What ticked me off about yesterday is that coaches and owners are now pandering to these overpaid apes. These are the same people who want nothing to do with Colin Kaepernick. Btw, the NFL, MLB and NBA have all been known for punishing owners and players who have exercised their right to free speech, publicly or privately and on their own time.

    Personally, I would never stand for our current tribe-controlled government. I'd never stand for any of the veterans who fought in all the wars since WW1. I'd never stand for our military industrial complex and I'd never stand for our current political parties like the GOP or DEMS. I especially wouldn't have stand for the previous administration that was in control.

    But, the only reason I will stand for the flag is because it still represents the original ideas our Founding Fathers tried to find this country on. They founded this country with the purpose of being another enclave for western European people. Those ideas were lost down the line and our country was surrendered to the degenerates of Humanity. Now we have leftists, bankers, and sodomites dictating the course of everything Jefferson and Washington fought so hard for.

    Of course, my reasons above are something liberals could never stand for. It seems to me they don't even know why they aren't standing for the flag.

    Agreed on all counts!

    I can't stand professional sports it is all just bread and circuses for the masses. Luckily there is a decline in people watching these yard apes getting paid all those millions to "entertain" the people.

    However I do not look at this as a free speech issue, they are at their jobs and their bosses dictate what and how they should behave. Tradition says you should look at the flag with your hand on your heart, if the boss says do that you do it or you leave very simple, its not free speech issue. Only a government or ruler can violate free speech and they do that with fines and or imprisonment at the point of gun if necessary.

    Sorry but these negroes and their supporters are doing this in support of a marxist group called BLM, there is no other reason than shock value. I agree 100% they should be fined or excused from the game.
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    Much respect for the lone player who went out, but the rest of the team are f#@king cowards!

    People should just stop watching the NFL
    Our beauty is our power, our strength. We can’t allow them to change us, to lessen us. I will never grant them that satisfaction, and neither should you!

    First Afro / American football player to kneel for the national anthem chosen for new Nike campaign

    FORMER AFRO AMERICAN FOOTBALL player, and former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, Colin Kaepernick has been chosen as the face of a new Nike advertising campaign to mark the 30th anniversary of the company’s iconic “Just Do It” slogan, it was confirmed yesterday. Kaepernick – who triggered a political firestorm after kneeling during the US national anthem in 2016 to protest racial injustice – has not played in the NFL since early last year. The 30-year-old is suing the NFL, claiming he has been frozen out of the league by team owners because of his activism.

    The new Nike adverts, which were unveiled just days before the kick-off of the 2018 NFL season on Thursday, show a portrait of Kaepernick with the slogan: “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.” Kaepernick posted the advert on his Twitter account followed by #JustDoIt.

    ESPN reported that Nike had kept Kaepernick, who signed a sponsorship deal with the company in 2011, on its payroll throughout the controversy of the past two years. “We believe Colin is one of the most inspirational athletes of this generation, who has leveraged the power of sport to help move the world forward,” said Gino Fisanotti, Nike’s vice president of brand for North America.

    The advert comes just days after Kaepernick was cheered by spectators when he appeared alongside fellow player and activist Eric Reid at the US Open tennis tournament to watch Serena Williams on Friday.

    Kaepernick kneeling during the anthem in September

    Kaepernick’s protests have become a bitterly divisive issue amongst NFL fans after President Donald Trump reignited the controversy during a campaign rally in September last year. Trump described players like Kaepernick who knelt for the anthem as “sons of bitches” who should be fired. The US leader has repeated those criticisms frequently over the past year, even suggesting at one stage that protesting players “shouldn’t be in the country”.


    #JustBurnIt

    In June, Trump cancelled the visit of the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after several players indicated they would not attend. Analysts have predicted Trump is likely to step up his rhetoric against protesting players in an attempt to rally supporters ahead of November’s mid-term elections.

    Critics of Kaepernick, who have framed his protest as unpatriotic and disrespectful to the US military, took to Twitter yesterday to hit out at the Nike deal.

    Some fans vowed to burn Nike goods, with the hashtag “JustBurnIt” trending alongside #BoycottNike.
    One video showed a pair of Nike runners in flames after apparently being burned in protest.
    Country music singer John Rich posted a photo of a pair of slashed Nike sports socks.
    “Our Soundman just cut the Nike swoosh off his socks,” Rich wrote on Twitter. “Get ready @Nike multiply that by the millions.”

    However others offered their support to the ostracised quarterback.
    “Colin Kaepernick drew our collective attention to the problem of continued racial injustice in America,” former CIA director John Brennan wrote on Twitter.“ He did so not to disrespect our flag but to give meaning to the words of the preamble of our Constitution—’in order to form a more perfect union.’ Well done, Colin, well done.”

    Nike’s sponsorship deal ensures the issue of the national anthem and player protests will re-emerge during the coming season, increasing pressure on the NFL to broker a solution. NFL owners in May approved a new policy which made it mandatory for all players on the field to stand during the pre-match ritual of the US national anthem. Players would be given the option of remaining in the locker room during renditions of The Star-Spangled Banner but would be fined if they did not stand while on the field. However the new policy was shelved in July as the NFL and NFL Players Association agreed to reopen dialogue to reach agreement on a new approach.

    Emptied headed like most ‘fuzzy – wuzzies’. Look at him.

    Nothing is ever enough for them and they are devoid of respect and gratitude.

    Never, at any level, could stand or watch any form of ‘nigger ball’ .
