The NFL Owes America An Apology

I wish to dedicate the song, “The Thrill Is Gone” by BB King to the NFL.  The lyrics are, “The thrill is gone. The thrill is gone away. You know you done me wrong baby. And you’ll be sorry someday.”

Folks, that is pretty much how I feel about the NFL. The NFL still does not appear to understand how offensive it was to millions of Americans to see NFL management and owners joining players in giving our country their middle finger. In response to millions of fans turning off the NFL, the NFL has backed away from televising player’s protests.

So we are suppose to forget what the NFL did to us. We are suppose to ignore that a large number of these guys running around the football field have disdain for our police and our country. We are suppose to ignore NFL player’s disrespect and ingratitude towards their fans. We are suppose to sit back and enjoy the game. I cannot do it. For me, the thrill of watching the NFL is gone. The NFL owes America an apology.

Spike Lee and the idiot ESPN guy who called the player’s employers “plantation owners” should be ashamed of themselves.

I am black. It always gets me the way blacks whom America has been extremely good to, love playing the race and slavery cards. They love poking their finger in the eye of white America. NFL owners are paying each of their slaves tens of millions of dollars. By the way, Spike Lee’s net worth is around $40 million; not crazy rich, but not bad to live on. Spike, why don’t you do the right thing and show a little gratitude and respect for your country.

There is nothing, I repeat nothing, racist about employers demanding that their employees stop engaging in behaviors which harm their bottom line.

All these Leftist talking heads claiming that Kaepernick is being mistreated are nuts. The guy should have been fined, reprimanded and ordered to stop the first time he arrogantly dissed our country on the football field. It still hurts and angers me that kids have embraced Kaepernick and his NFL follower’s disdain for their country.

We’re suppose to sit back and enjoy watching the game knowing that the NFL player’s union funds the anti-Trump resistance movement and hate America groups. NFL players are on the same team with Dr Evil, George Soros. Soros paid Black Lives Matter over $30 million to wreck havoc in our streets. Black Lives Matter supporters have declared open season on killing cops and white people.

Here’s the chilling hate-filled proclamation of violence made by a Black Lives Matter activist on the radio:

Open season on killing whites and white police officers. And I want to talk about the shooting of the white deputy sheriff in Houston Texas. Its open season on killing whites and white police officers. And probably killing cops period. Its open season, picking them off. Today, we live in a time when the white man will be picked off. And there’s nothing he can do about it. His day is up. His time is up. We’ll witness more executions and killing of white people and cops than we ever have before.

And this is the hate group Kaepernick and the NFL have chosen to celebrate as having the moral high ground over us regular, unified, decent, hardworking and football loving Americans. We’re suppose to sit back and enjoy watching the game.

After Black Lives Matter assassinated his dad, Officer Rafael Ramos, 13 year old Jaden Ramos posted the following on Facebook.

Today I had to say bye to my father. He was their for me everyday of my life, he was the best father I could ask for. It’s horrible that someone gets shot dead just for being a police officer. Everyone says they hate cops but they are the people that they call for help. I will always love you and I will never forget you. RIP Dad.

My fellow Americans, it is truly sad and unfortunate that this entire Kaepernick and NFL players vs America nonsense is rooted in a straw man, a non-existing enemy; a lie. Cops do not routinely murder blacks.

Heather MacDonald is author of, “The War on Cops: How the New Attack on Law and Order Makes Everyone Less Safe.” MacDonald’s research has revealed that no government agency is more committed to saving black lives than police; saving tens of thousands of minority lives since the mid-1990s. Insidiously, democrats, Hollywood, fake news media and Leftist controlled big education have chosen to hide this truth from the masses.

Another lie fueling hatred for cops is black criminal Michael Brown was murdered by a white cop while trying to surrender with his hands up. For the gazillion time, evidence confirmed and the grand jury concluded that Brown was shot while reaching inside the police car attempting to take the officer’s gun. Brown’s blood was found inside the police car.

It is truly shameful that NFL management continues to give the player’s bogus-beef the time of day. But we’re suppose to sit back and enjoy watching the game. The NFL owes cops, whites, our military, football fans and America an apology.
