We dont believe you demonstrate against the American flag. We believe in the American flag. Neither demonstrate against the Constitution. We believe in the Constitution.. There are other ways to get your point across. We don’t believe one should demonstrate against our country. NFL players protesting the Constitution should be done in other ways than to do it during games. The people should boycott the games by no watching or buying tickets
Sen. James Lankford of Oklahoma said Wednesday that the Russian troll farms were hashtagging “take a knee” and “boycott NFL” to amplify the issue. He said the effort involved “taking both sides of the argument” to increase divisiveness in the country.
Steven Seagal says the NFL protests are “outrageous” and “disgusting” and it makes him sick to his stomach to watch.
And he said this all while sitting in a chair in Moscow.
Seagal joined Piers Morgan on “Good Morning Britain” on a satellite feed from Russia (he was granted Russian citizenship in 2016) and went off on the kneeling demonstrations.
“I believe in free speech. I believe that everyone’s entitled to their own opinion. But I don’t agree they should hold the United States of America and the world hostage by picking a venue where people are tuning in to watch a football game and imposing their political views.”
“I think it’s outrageous, I think it’s a joke. It’s disgusting.”
Ford, (F)a sponsor of the National Football League, has voiced support for NFL players exercising their right to free speech and peaceful protest after President Donald Trump urged fans to consider a boycott.
“We respect individuals’ rights to express their views, even if they are not ones we share,” the company said on Monday. “That’s part of what makes America great.”
The company’s remarks come amid a dispute between the league and Trump, who has lashed out at players who choose to take a knee during the national anthem as a sign of silent protest over racial and social injustice.
Trump said on Friday that NFL owners should fire players who refused to stand during the National Anthem. In response, players across the country knelt during the anthem before Sunday’s games. Some violated the NFL’s policy by staying off the field completely during the playing of the “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
The evil was not in bread and circuses, per se, but in the willingness of the people to sell their rights as free men for full bellies and the excitement of the games which would serve to distract them from the other human hungers which bread and circuses can never appease.
