Crowd yells racial slur after youth players take knee during National Anthem, coach says
If Kaper-dick and his supporters think they are scoring any points for their cause, they better look again.
If the kneelers motivation/goal for their disrespectful behavior is expected to better their cause, they have another guess coming. All they are doing is pouring gasoline on a bonfire that is already raging out of control.
A suburban Pittsburgh youth football league says it is investigating reports of racial slurs being hurled at an all-black team after some took a knee during the national anthem.
What do the kneelers expect, a ticker tape parade down 5th Avenue??? Disrespecting our country is on the same level as spitting in the face of your parents. Many people have issues on how they were raised, they don’t believe that their parents were always right in their decision-making but they do not deliberately disrespect them, especially in the era I grew up in.
What the old school parents told their disrespectful kids? If you don’t like the way things are in my house, move out. That was after they gave them a good swift kick in the ass. Today’s PC pathetic parents would never be so bold.
One of the major problems the kneelers and their sympathizers have; as bad as they think they have it, they should go to live in another country that puts the hammer on their people for a lot less. Ever hear of Syria – North Korean – Russia and China to a certain degree. In those countries, people are killed for expressing their opinions or being late for a meeting. The rebels should take a trip for a few months and test those waters to see what the other side lives like.
Just as I use the benefits/privileges of the USA’s constitution to express my feelings with words; I do not burn the flag because I am pissed off at the pathetic politicians. The kneelers should be doing the same with their protests, getting their message across without inciting possible riots. This is where this movement is headed.
I agree; the kneelers are getting a bigger bang for their buck by what they are doing because of the TV exposure they get than if they were approaching their differences in another manner. BUT – ALWAYS THE BIG BUT; if their demonstrations were bringing about a change for the better in the country, that may acceptable behavior but so far it is not. All they are doing dividing the country more than it is already, if that is possible.
What this is eventually going to boil down to are race rioting, burning killing and much worse.
I would advise; when their house was in complete order, they would have my total support BUT, THE BIG BUT; it is nowhere near in the order it should be. Get to the root of the problem, fix it, then if the conditions still exist, they can kneel all they want to and no one should have any complaints.
The black community and the hustlers who represent them (Jesse – Sharpless and the rest) need to do whatever they can to get the crime rate down, the main of their plight and there will be a lot fewer possibilities of why any cop should have to accost them. I don’t ever see that happening.
Hustlers like the above mentioned are making too much money keeping their people pissed off at the system, while they are living large. If their people are not pissed off, they quit donating to their causes.
Jesse Jackson’s crib. Not bad for a preacher.
What we have in Jesse and Sharpless are two people who are imposters hiding behind a title of REVEREND. They are about as reverend as Billy the Kid was a school teacher.
The role of an ordained reverend includes many duties, some inside the church and some outside. Before becoming ordained and taking on the role of a clergyperson, you should consider the responsibilities.
One of the primary goals of an ordained reverend is to preach weekly sermons to the church congregation. Sermons are usually based on spiritual or biblical texts. The reverend is regarded as the spiritual guide or “shepherd” of the congregation. An ordained reverend may preach to other congregations; a reverend who is not ordained may preach only to her church.
An ordained reverend often serves as a counselor for the members of the church. He might be called upon to provide premarital and marital counseling, or to counsel members who are battling problems such as depression or substance abuse.
An ordained reverend is often called upon to oversee religious ceremonies. These can include weddings, funerals, baptisms and christenings. Some reverends are “licensed” only to perform weddings and cannot perform a full range of ceremonies.
The reverend is often asked to pray for members of the church as well as for their friends and their family. Congregants can call her to pray even when she is not at the church.
An ordained reverend is expected to reach out to members of the community who are unable to attend the church. This includes visiting the sick and ministering to the homeless.
When was the last time some of these pious people preached the word of god to their congregations instead of hatred??? Their mission in life is self-serving; keeping the coffers full by spreading hatred.
Does the black community have legitimate complaints when it comes to the actions of the rogue cops abusing their authority??? Absolutely yes they do but adding more gasoline to a fire does not help extinguish the flames. The crime rate in the black communities should be a major concern for our government officials to get a handle on. The sooner the better.
The fools that run sporting events still have not used any common-sense by playing the national anthem before the teams come out on the field. Absolute stupidity. Don’t give the kneelers the chance to demonstrate their disrespect. It is not rocket science, just common sense.
Is it out of the question that perhaps our president should have come out with an edict as simple as that??? Probably too simple of a solution!!!!! But what should we expect from a president who, at one time refused to wear the American pin flag on his suit jacket???

Asked about it Wednesday in an interview with KCRG-TV in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, the Illinois senator said he stopped wearing the pin shortly after the attacks and instead hoped to show his patriotism by explaining his ideas to citizens.
“The truth is that right after 9/11 I had a pin,” Obama said. “Shortly after 9/11, particularly because as we’re talking about the Iraq war, that became a substitute for I think true patriotism, which is speaking out on issues that are of importance to our national security.
“I decided I won’t wear that pin on my chest,” he said in the interview. “Instead, I’m going to try to tell the American people what I believe will make this country great, and hopefully that will be a testament to my patriotism.”
History is/will tell the rest of the story.
Love it – respect it our leave it. It is that simple.
