I despise Barack Obama. I despise what he did to my country. I hated his apologizing for America. I hated his dividing the country. I hated his pitting segments of the nation against each other. I hated his seeing himself as President of the World and not President of the United States. I hated his weaponizing the IRS to persecute conservatives. I hated his abusing the law to spy on Donald Trump in the name of national security. I hated his selling automatic weapons to drug cartels in Mexico. I hated his writing laws unilaterally. I hated it when he called Americans “enemies.”

I also despise Colin Kaepernick, and now I despise the entire NFL.

The Ravens and the Jaguars played a game in London (so I hear) and it seems many players took a knee during the US national anthem and then stood for UK national anthem.

The Pittsburgh Steelers could not be bothered to even come out on the field for the flag.

The other day Donald Trump spoke for an awful lot of Americans when he suggested fans boycott the NFL if players refuse to stand for their flag and anthem.  He also added:

‘Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, “Get that son of a b***h off the field right now! He is fired. He’s fired!”‘ Trump boomed.

His crowd applauded and chanted ‘USA! USA!’

In response, Roger Goodell issue a statement in which he said:

“Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players, and a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs and players represent in our communities.”

Divisive? The divisiveness began with Kaepernick, who has parlayed a lack of skill and a pissy, whiny attitude into a movement. The divisiveness continued when the league allowed this stupid behavior continue.

My grandfather used to say “You don’t shit where you eat.”

I am pretty damned tired of pampered, spoiled morons in the NFL whining about how tough their lives are and how they are oppressed. Here are a few people whose lives are somewhat more compromised than your average footballer:






I am sitting here writing this today when in a different time I would be watching football.

No more.

I have no interest in watching the National Social Protest league. None. NFL TV ratings continue to slide. Some are trying desperately to deflect from the downturn, creating all sorts of excuses for it such as hurricanes and lack of quality.

But we know better. We also remember someone else who chose to diss the flag:

(CNN) – An astute reporter for CNN affiliate KCRG-TV noticed there was something missing from Sen. Barack Obama’s wardrobe. He wasn’t wearing the common American flag lapel pin, a fashion fixture in post-9/11 politics used to display patriotism following the attacks.

“I decided I won’t wear that pin on my chest,” the Democratic presidential candidate told the reporter Tuesday in Iowa City, Iowa. “Instead, I’m going to try to tell the American people what I believe will make this country great. Hopefully that will be a testimony to my patriotism.”

This grandstanding idiocy is not going to hurt Trump:

Indeed. The flag is not Donald Trump, the flag is America and everything America stands for. Donald Trump is the President, he is not America. Dissing the flag is dissing America, not dissing Donald Trump.

Patriots understand that. Which is why no matter how much I despise Barack Obama I would never not stand for my anthem and my flag.


And thank you, Alejandro Villanueva. This is what a real American looks like.
