This is America… it just is.
As the national anthem played at the start of a high school football game in Maine, one of the spectators noticed three roofers off in the distance. She quickly grabbed her camera to take a picture.
Just three ordinary guys, ordinary blue-collar Americans, doing what ordinary American people do. STORY HERE The reality of American patriotism is exactly why the NFL is beginning to see this:
Shamelessly stolen from Sundance at The Last Refugeby jeffli6 with no comments yet
You own a large company that sells a specialty product only a dozen other companies have the capability to produce, let’s say booster rockets. Your employees have very specific skill sets and are paid handsomely for what they do. You hired a new engineer a few years back and he blossomed into one of the best engineers in the business, he did so well in fact that you let one of your favorite engineers go and gave the new engineer an enormous raise, you just couldn’t keep them both.
A few years go by and the new engineer starts slacking, he can’t keep up with new technology and isn’t willing to put in the work to get better. He’s under contract so you decide to stick with him hoping he’ll come along. Then you start hearing about complaints he has with your number one client, he thinks the your customer doesn’t hire enough minorities and is racist, this is your best client. He’s becoming a cancer in your business and starting to influence the other employees so you let him go when his contract is up.
Years of training and developing him gone to waste. It’s crushed your business and it’s going to take another five to ten years to rebuild. You’re amazed when your competitors start calling for references on your old employee, they’ve all seen the damage he did to your company yet they want to hear it from you since you know him best. Whether or not you give him a good reference is inconsequential, the damage he did with his baseless complaints against your best client is being felt industry wide.
Nobody will hire your former engineer, they don’t want anything to do with someone who obviously has an axe to grind and they don’t want their business to suffer because some one hit wonder boy feels aggrieved. As his former employer you can’t blame them, it’s smart business, you only wish you hadn’t hired him in the first place.
Now your former engineer is suing not only you but your competitors for unfair hiring practices through his union.
In that context is it fair?
If he was an NFL quarterback would that change your mind?
It shouldn’t, it’s the same thing.

Just when you thought the democrats couldn’t screw up their brand much worse than “Hillary for President” we now have Hurricane Harvey Weinstein and Jemele “It’s Because I’m Black” Hill tossed in for grins and giggles. The left now has to turn on their own to cover their collective asses. At this point nobody’s safe.
Hillary issues statement about being “appalled” and is “outraged” at Weinsteins behavior when the obvious comparison is her husband Cigar Boy Bill.
Obama, lefty celebrities and the liberal media now have to speak unkind words about one of their bestest buddies and money man.
Media whore feminist attorney Lisa Bloom jumps on as adviser for Weinstein then realizes her massive hypocrisy and resigns. Ya can’t have your cake and eat it too toots.
ESPN picked their nose then picked a fight with the perpetually oppressed by suspending the angry black woman who hates whitey.
The NFL is considering changing their policies and mandating players stand for the anthem thus siding with deplorable’s, libtards heads imploding.
Kaerpernick say’s he will stand for anthem if somebody will pay him, his Mussie girlfriend say’s not so fast. Ripples in the pool of love?
Of course the GOPe is having it’s own battle within the ranks but let me say this, I don’t think Trump is an intellectual by any means but he is the biggest reason all of this is happening. It’s either genius or uncanny knack of knowing what buttons to push.by jeffli6 with 5 comments

ESPN African-American, female, talking head Jemele Hill called Trump a “white supremacist” in a tweet in September.
“Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has surrounded himself with other white supremacists,” Hill wrote on Sept 11. She called him “the most ignorant, offensive president of my lifetime.” Hill also called Trump a “bigot,” and “unqualified and unfit to be president.” She even added: “If he were not white, he never would have been elected.”
She was not fired or suspended because Disney CEO didn’t want to hurt her delicate sensibilities due to her race.
“I’ve not ever experienced prejudice, certainly not racism. It’s even hard for me to understand what they’re feeling about this, what it feels like to experience racism. So I felt we needed to take into account what Jemele and other people at ESPN were feeling in this time. That resulted in us not taking action on the tweet she put out.”
Now Ms. Hill is going after Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and his advertisers because Jerry told his team to stand for the anthem.When you allow these people to get away with saying whatever they want with no consequences, you empower them to say more. Going after one of the most powerful owners in the NFL isn’t particularly smart on Hills part, but because she felt she could say anything without repercussion, she said it.
Now ESPN’s been forced to put a leash on her so they suspended her for two weeks, a slap on the wrist when they should have fired her. Fired her not for being the useful idiot that she is, but for hurting to company she works for…that’s why people get fired. Disney is so terrified of being called racist that they refuse to take the appropriate action against someone with preferred minority status.
Don’t take my word for it, remember Curt Schilling? The white, male former baseball player. ESPN fired him for comments made about Muslims.
“ESPN is an inclusive company,” the network said in a statement. “Curt Schilling has been advised that his conduct was unacceptable and his employment with ESPN has been terminated.”
See how that works, a black woman can call The President of the United States a white supremacist, a bigot, ignorant, and unfit for office and she gets to keep her job. A white male posts an unflattering comment about Muslims, (you know the exploding ones that hate America), on social media and he is terminated.
So a black female sports writer turned
ESPN anchor Social Justice Warrior is more valuable to her company than a white former professional pitcher who happens to be conservative.
