President Trump has stepped in it. It is the controversy that is coming to a head in which NFL players are refusing to stand at attention when the National Anthem is played. How disrespectful!
I recently recorded a video in which I detailed how the President is wrong, to call for punishment of NFL players who are kneeling during the Anthem. However, these players have the Constitutional right to do what they are doing. Many in my audience did not appreciate the position I took with regard to this most distasteful, yet legal protest by select NFL players. Here was my take on Trump’s controversial stand.
Trump may not recognize these players to do what they are doing and it is a 1st Amendment right. However, I agree with POTUS, Americans who are loyal to their country need to strike back and in this sense, I agree with the President.
Although dissent has to be available to all and these spoiled brat football players have the legal right to do what they are doing, and we need to allow these misguided people to do what they are doing. However, we have the right to boycott this anti-American league of enttiled football players in an attempt to dry up their revenue sources.
Here are other reasons to boycott the NFL as they are an organization only one notch below organized crime.
The NFL Price Gouges Every Vendor and Fan They Service
When my wife supervised concessions in the National Football League’s (NFL) 1997 Super Bowl, as the Arizona’s Operations Manager for McDonalds, the corporation was charged 30% of all profits by the NFL for the privilege of helping the NFL make money. The corporation lost a lot of money as did all the other participants in the NFL Experience and the Super Bowl, directly.
The NFL owners demand that citizens of various communities put up hundreds of millions of dollars to build monolithic stadiums at taxpayers expense.Amazingly, the NFL does not pay tax on its revenues!
Unbelievable: The NFL Is Tax Exempt
Did you know that the NFL made $9 billion dollars last year? Did you know that the NFL is a tax-exempt corporation and paid no tax on their $9 billion dollars of profit last season! What is wrong with this picture? Adding insult to injury, the NFL extorts money from every city that hosts the Super Bowl.
Hide Your Wallet When the Super Bowl Comes to Town
In the most recent string of NFL violations of the public trust, the NFL used local government to control pricing of hotel rooms in and around the University of Phoenix Stadium where the 2015 Super Bowl was played. Fortunately, for the people of the nearby area in Glendale, AZ., and their Mayor, Jerry Weiers, have told the NFL to go pound sand. Can you believe that the NFL thinks that they have the right to price fix local merchants and the prices that they would charge? Mark it down, on Super Bowl Sunday, the NFL becomes the economic dictators of the host city!
Every time the Super Bowl is played in a city, the residents’ wallets get a little lighter with the corporate welfare demanded by the league for the pleasure of helping the NFL make more money.
The last time I attended an NFL game, a 10 ounce beer cost $10! A dollar an ounce for warm stadium beer! And we thought the Rockefellers were being greedy over the price of oil!
Don’t Try to Smuggle Your Constitution Inside of An NFL Stadium: The NFL or the TSA, What’s the Difference?
Please remember, as I have reported before, this is the same NFL which is participating in the violation of our constitutional liberties through TSA-type searches. When you go to an NFL game, by default, you give up your Fourth Amendment rights.
The NFL An Accomplice to Tyranny
In the commission of a crime, if you drive the getaway car and get caught, are you going to jail? You are darn right you are going to jail. Shouldn’t we expect the same of a sports league in which select owners thinks it is OK to aid and abet in the act of kidnapping a child from his or her elementary school.
In Operation Mountain Guardian, we should remember, that this is the same NFL that allowed FEMA to bring school children to the Denver Broncos Sports Authority Field after they were illegally removed from their elementary schools without parental notification or permission. To date, there has been no apology or explanation given. The same thing took place at the New York Giants Stadium as well.
Why would anyone support such an organization?
The NFL Backs Gun Confiscation
Who will ever forget the Bob Costas rant at an NFL game in 2014 when he called for gun confiscation. The people who overpay for the game tickets are not paying to hear the NFL tell everyone that they should give up their guns. Does anyone think it is an accident that the NFL is cooperating to allow their venues to be used as detention centers in times of national emergency?
It Is Time To Boycott the NFL
How does one go about boycotting the NFL? Pretty much the same way that one would boycott anything.
1. Not that it will do any good, but write to your Congressman demanding that the tax exemption for the NFL is revoked.
2. Press your State Legislators to pass laws forbidding the use of tax payer money to support corporate welfare for the NFL The billionaire owners can build their own stadiums.
3. Write to all advertisers of NFL televised games and tell them that you will not buy their products as long as they advertise at NFL games.
4. Obviously, everyone should refuse to buy a ticket to an NFL game.
5. Do not buy NFL merchandise
I played high school football and coached at the high school level before moving on to coach college basketball. I love football. It is a brutal game played by tough men. I learned a lot about life and discipline from my football coaches. If you are like me, you do not have to get your football fix from the NFL. Go to a high school game where the competition is genuine and the love of the game is why the athletes play.
Please remember that brave men died to preserve our nation. The NFL is spitting on the memories of these men.
The only reason that American forces attacked Guadalcanal in the dark days of 1942 during WWII, was because America needed a victory, any victory. Boycotting the NFL can serve the same purpose.
The forces of the NWO are so omnipresent, so powerful that the general public is unable to gain any traction against this tyranny. However, this is a battle we can win. Nobody can force you to go to a NFL football game. Nobody can force you to purchase NFL products. This is what we should have done after the TSA began to sexually assault Americans, refuse to fly. If the American public stood down in the face of tyranny, the airlines and the NFL would go broke and their screams would have been heard all the way to the halls of Congress.
