Out of Respect for the Flag and for Our Veterans: Please Stand Up!!

Today is Super Bowl Sunday. My question is: how many NFL players are kneeling during the National Anthem?

Colin Kaepernick was the first NFL player to kneel during the National Anthem. After he did it many others had followed suit and joined him. Even the celebrities had joined forces with him; along with the Leftist.

I don’t mind the idea of standing up for what you believe or not believe. I mean, this is still a free country.

Remember though, it’s a free country because of those who served in our military. We should honor our veterans, both those who died and those who are still alive.

We should also honor and respect the American flag as well.

During the Vietnam War, protester would burn the flag as a protest against that war. I get that.

This is America, the country I love. I love my country and I’m forever grateful for our veterans for their sacrifice to this country. Because of their sacrifice, I will stand up during the National Anthem and salute the American flag.

If you are going to protest the National Anthem and the American flag, do it on your own time. You NFL’s pro-football players are employed by the fans. If it weren’t for us buying the tickets to see the game and even watching it on TV, you wouldn’t have a job; where you makes millions playing ball.

Ever since Colin Kaepernick started this kneeling during the National Anthem, others had fallen suit. Celebrities and the Leftist, all encourage it.

This is a very controversial blog, like last blog was.

When I was in school, the first thing the class did every morning was stand and pledge allegiance to the flag, the American flag. I’m proud to be an American!

This year at the Super Bowl, Gladys Knight sang the National Anthem, and the celebrities and the Leftist weren’t too happy about it. They expected her to join them is the protest.

Rianna was first asked to sing the National Anthem but she turned it down because she sides in with Colin Kaepernick.

I think that the NFL’s board member should fine those who choose to kneel during the National Anthem. Not only should they fine them, they should be kick off the team as well.

Is it America they hate or is it Pres. Trump they hate?

Just because Trump wants to make America great again; it doesn’t give them the right to be disrespectful during the National Anthem. That is what they are being! I have NO RESPECT for them.

As you can tell by the photo on the top of this blog, I’m proud to be an American. I love this country! I will gladly stand up during the National Anthem out of respect. The only excuse you should have for not standing up is that you are in a wheelchair. I will salute the American flag as well.

On 9/11, 2001, I was working at Concordia College. There was a prayer service in the chapel area during the evening. I joined few of the students and staff in the chapel to offer prayers and support for our country in that time of crisis. I even took off my cap out of respect. That is what you do, as an American.

Those who choose not to stand during the National Anthem are walking on the fighting side of me. I salute our veterans for their service to this country. Those who are still alive and those who either died in service or later.

If you hate this country so much, why don’t you just leave! There are many who are dying to come to this country for the freedom that we enjoyed. I mean we have caravans of people coming to this country from Mexico and Central America. They don’t hate this country. They want a better life. They want the freedom that we have; that they may not have in their home country.

So the next time you choose to kneel, remember that the reason you have the choice to do it because of the freedom we have. In lots of country you don’t have that freedom. If you protest the government in some of the other countries, such as: Russia, China, Iraq, and the list goes on. They will kill you in a firing squad.

So why don’t KNEE this, you anti-American!! We don’t need your kind here to destroy our great country. If you hate America so bad, you can just get the HELL out. I have no respect at all for you!!
