Remember what they say about Karma? The NFL is getting a stern reminder.
Colin Kaepernick started protesting against the flag and the anthem because he just couldn’t stand the racist police.
Before he ‘Took A Knee’, he sat on his rump on the bench.
He explained why in 2016:
“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick told NFL Media in an exclusive interview after the game. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”
Did he just say that police officers are murdering people because of their race?
Yes, he is. But it’s important to remember that this is where the ‘Take A Knee’ started — with bias against police officers — before it became a catch-all for progressive ideology including the ‘Gender Pay Gap’.
The NFL is fine with the anti-cop actions of the players, but not so much on some other issues.
Check out Doug’s latest video enumerating the issues the NFL isn’t so keen on their players raising awareness for:
Although many have forgotten what this ‘Take A Knee’ nonsense started over, there’s one group that didn’t forget: Law Enforcement officers.
And officers in Miami aren’t going to let the slander slide.
Florida police officers are upset about the kneeling protest, and have decided that they can protest NFL games by not working them. They are reducing the number of officers scheduled for security at the games.
There were a third less officers available for the Dolphins game on Sunday.
Check it out:
Rather than 400 officers, just 270 were expected to help maintain order as the New York Jets played the home team.
As of Friday, only 175 officers had volunteered to work the game, requiring some officers to be forced into working. Those who worked will be paid overtime.
“This whole movement started against police officers,” Rivera told CBS News. “And now it’s morphed into disrespecting the flag and the country.”

This, I believe, is the correct response.
If the players think that cops are racists getting away with murder because the system is rigged — withdraw the police that are there to serve and protect. See how that works out.
Offended cops say it all has to do with respect.
“This whole movement started against police officers,” [Dade Police Benevolent Association President John] Rivera said. “And now it’s morphed into disrespecting the flag and the country.”
Miami-Dade Police released a statement, saying, “Any shortfall in volunteer officers doesn’t necessarily mean that the game will result in less safety.”

Miami isn’t the only place seeing pushback.
Last month, Cleveland police refused to hold the American flag during pregame ceremonies because of the kneeling clowns.
Cleveland’s police union will not be holding the American flag for a pregame ceremony for the Brown’s first game Sept. 10, Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association President Steve Loomis said late Friday.
Union members had planned on participating in the flag ceremony for the first game on Sept. 10 until some Browns players kneeled during the National Anthem before a preseason game, Loomis said in an interview with cleveland.com.
The players not standing for the national anthem is offensive because of the sacrifices that people make that allows these guys to enjoy the success that they have, Loomis said. While they’re benefiting from protection of the flag they are kneeling in disrespect of it, he said.
And look at all those empty seats! Fans aren’t liking the protest any more than the police do.
The NFL is well on its way to becoming the league with No Fans Left.
A shirt that aptly describes the NFL — No Fans Left.
NFL’s TV ratings are plummeting as more players refuse to stand for the national anthem. It’s hard to believe that a nation that has given these players the opportunity to achieve so much is so easily disrespected. Even worse, consider the men and women who have laid down their lives so that these athletes could live in a relatively safe country and enjoy their fame and fortune.
Hard-working, patriotic Americans don’t want to watch a bunch of whiners play football. They want to watch winners.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!

Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
