Watching the news clips of the oppressed, mistreated and ungrateful football professionals kneeling while the Star Spangled Banner was playing or refusing to take the field Sunday made we want to throw up. I gave up watching these overpaid, under educated buffoon’s over 25 years ago. It is strange that I received two separate messages today that motivated me to publish them rather than just forward as E mails. I only swap E mails with about 100 friends while some 650 people worldwide read this blog. This first message sounds reasonable and it will be refreshing to see if a mass boycott happens. The NFL owners need a trip to their “Shrink” to see that we the people are pissed off. CWB
Message #1 that I received
“People are calling for a Boycott of all football telecast, all fans, all ticket holders, stay away from attending any games, let them play to empty stadiums. Pass this post along to all your friends and family. Honor our military, some of whom come home with the American Flag draped over their coffin.
Plan to continue with the weekly boycott and on Sunday November 12th, Veterans Day weekend, we need a 100% or a complete boycott of all NFL games. This is one way to honor the dead, wounded, current serving and all of the veterans dead and alive”.
These ingrates should see the terms you are required to sign when you enlist like I did at 17 giving your life if necessary to the Government.
The second message fired me up and I hope every one of these NFL ingrates hear these words, even in their sleep. I want to thank my old friend, Jim Heck, for sharing these beautiful and thoughtful words. Ted Nugent has become one of my “Hero’s” for writing this song to honor our veterans. This brought a few teary eyes for this old man and made me remember my only brother. He served 24 years in the US Army, including tours in Viet Nam and died at 55 after he was spit on, cursed and hounded by people incited by Hanoi Jane and the Clinton’s. Clyde W Brewer
Ted Nugent, singer, song-writer and guitarist, wrote this today for the NFL “Kneelers”… God bless him.
Take a little trip to Valley Forge in January. If you don’t know where that is, just “Google” it from the sidelines. Hold a musket ball in your fingers and imagine it piercing your flesh and breaking a bone or two. There won’t be a doctor or trainer to assist you until after the battle, so just wait your turn. Take your cleats and socks off to get a real experience….Then take a knee.
Then, take one at the beach in Normandy where man after American man [including Negroes who served] stormed the beach, even as the one in front of him was shot to pieces…the very sea stained with American blood. The only blockers most had were the dead bodies in front of them, riddled with bullets from enemy fire.
Take a knee in the sweat soaked jungles of Vietnam. From Khe San to Saigon… Anywhere will do. REAL Americans died in all those jungles. There was no playbook that told them what was next, but they knew what flag they represented. When they came home, they were protested as well..and spit on for reasons only cowards know.
Take another knee in the blood drenched sands of Fallujah in 110 degree heat.. Wear your Kevlar helmet and battle dress… Your number won’t be printed on it unless your number is up! You’ll need to stay hydrated but there won’t be anyone to squirt Gatorade into your mouth. You’re on your own.
There’s a lot of places to take a knee.
Real Americans have given their lives all over the world. When you use the banner under which they fought as a source for your displeasure, you dishonor the memories of those who bled for the very freedoms you have. That’s what the red stripes mean. It represents the blood of those who spilled a sea of it defending your liberty.
While you’re on your knee, pray for those that came before you, not on a manicured lawn striped and printed with numbers to announce every inch of ground taken…but on nameless hills and bloodied beaches and sweltering forests and bitter cold mountains… every inch marked by an American life lost serving that flag you protest. No cheerleaders, no announcers, no coaches, no fans…just American men and women… delivering the real fight against those who chose to harm us…blazing a path so you would have the right to “take a knee.”
You haven’t an inkling what it took to get you where you are; but your “protest” is duly noted. Not only is it disgraceful to a nation of real heroes, it serves the purpose of pointing to your ingratitude for those who chose to defend you under that banner that will still wave long after your jersey is issued to another…
If you really feel the need to take a knee, come with me to church on Sunday and we’ll both kneel before Almighty God. We’ll thank Him for preserving this country for as long as He has. We’ll beg forgiveness for our ingratitude for all He has provided us. We’ll appeal to Him for understanding and wisdom. We’ll pray for liberty and justice for all…because He is the one who provides those things. And there will be no protest. There will only be gratitude for His provision and a plea for His continued grace and mercy on the land of the free and the home of the brave.
It goes like this.. GOD BLESS AMERICA
I feel honored to post this article. How do you feel after reading it? How do you feel watching these millionaires kneel during the anthem? Clyde Brewer
