NFL Protests? Barren and Unfruitful…

I didn’t really want to get involved with, or even do a post on this crazy NFL “kneeling players” debacle.  Like everything else that dominates the media of mass deception, one day it will be old news and end up in the trash heap of history.

However, after reading several posts from my blog roll (and many excellent comments and links therein), I thought that I would share them here.

1. Cry and Howl: About that racial equality thing.

My friend Steve has an uncanny knack at getting to the heart of the controversy.

Just a brief excerpt:

Basically, I think the professional athletes should be a bit more thankful to a nation which allows minorities to dominate several professional sports and make 10’s of millions of $ doing it. Around 70% of NFL players are black and close to 80% of NBA players are black.

I have seen several interviews of black commentators who said the same thing.  They also said that these highly paid athletes would do better to actually give back to the black families (who are often fans) who are in poverty, instead of doing something “easy” like kneeling on one knee in protest.  

These protests are clearly being done in order to follow cunningly devised fables.  Going about it in such a wrong way (where they claim to be displaying allegiance for grievances) shows a huge disrespect for our flag and anthem; both of which represents We The People and recognizes those in the military who have fought, bled, lost limbs, and died for our freedoms.

Be sure to check out the link that Steve provided:

Anyway, I read this piece over at American Thinker and thought I’d share it with the good folks visiting in case you missed it.

2. Kingsjester’s Blog: The Assimilation of the NFL by the “New Borg” Continues as the Cowboys Take a Knee and Villanueva Apologizes

Well, I am a Star Trek fan so I immediately knew what “The New Borg” meant.

Excerpt:

If you are a Star Trek Fan, you already know who “The Borg” are.

For those of you who have never heard of them, the Borg are an alien manufactured “race” that appear as “bad guys” in the Star Trek franchise. The Borg are a seemingly endless attack force of “drones”, or cybernetic organisms who are linked together in a hive mind called “the Collective”, or “the Hive”. The Borg acquire through the means of force the technology and knowledge of other alien species to the Collective via a process of “assimilation”. They forcibly transform individuals into drones by violently implanting microscopic machines, or nanoprobes, into their bodies while augmenting them with cybernetic components. The Borg’s ultimate goal is “achieving perfection”.

Why did I begin my post with Star Trek Lore?

Because, boys and girls, America is now fighting our own war with a “New Borg”…

And they are assimilating everyone and every American Institution in their path.

Their current target for assimilation is the NFL.

And, according to the already-assimilated Main Stream Media, they have succeeded.

The use of propaganda has been in existence since the beginning of our great country.  Unfortunately, due to the current tendency to create “fake news,” many people have difficulty discerning the good or evil side.

3. The Isaiah 53:5 Project

The author disliked the nasty terminology that President Trump used while commenting on the topic at one of his rallies.  Yeah…I also think that was totally inappropriate and wished that he didn’t use such language.

However, many individuals in government and in the political world lose their temper and say awful things.  There is no excuse for it, but eventually there comes a time when we need to forgive.

I have a saying on my phone:

“Family should be there for each other, even when we screw up.”

Yep…been there, needed that!

I realize that our nation is not a “family.”  However, we can see parallels within family relationships that could equate to relationships within our nation.  Most important of all is how we use this time on earth as we share with others how our own relationship with God steers us towards love, good works, lawfulness and salvation.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 10:24And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works,
Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 1:6Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hand
Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 6:9Then Jesus said to them, “I will ask you one thing: Is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good or to do evil, to save life or to destroy?”[fn]

Excerpt from Isaiah 53:5 Project:

* All that being said, there is a lot of stupid talk and angry rhetoric on both sides of this issue but that is exactly what we should all expect when we don’t live in a sane world.

It’s utterly mind blowing that America is collectively losing its mind over who stands and who kneels at football games. We are all fiddling while Rome is burning.

Commenter Carl wrote:

Ironically it is not the flag that fosters evil it is of evil people and the flag represents all that is good and they should realize that it also represents the opportunity to extend equality and justice and to repair that it may not exist in some things. The kneelers all looked stupid to me as the fans cheered for the anthem (almost a protest against the protesters) and the fireworks echoed Ft McHenry and the jets shook the sky in celebration as they flew over the fields.

2 Peter 1 contains the best advice for us all!

I suggest reading the entire chapter, but here is a relevant excerpt:

2Pe 1:5

But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge,

2Pe 1:6

to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness,

2Pe 1:7

to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love.

2Pe 1:8

For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Hat tips to all links.

    Hey Christine! You know they’ve managed to completely demonize the Confederate flag … typical of the left though, now they’re going after the American flag. Pathetic.

      Yes! Very true!

      It often seems to me that the Democrats are into demonizing anything and everything, anyone and everyone, any belief and every belief that they disagree with! Therefore, those who oppose and outwardly demonize and disparage what we hold dear (i.e. God, family, morality, and country) will find any means by which to cause chaos, division, hatred and destruction of all that God (and we) hold dear as good.

      You’re absolutely right! They are pathetic! Some people will choose to never learn. However, I think that there are more and more people who oppose the evil that they represent and now realize how badly they have been duped by the left for decades.

    To GM,

    Your latest ranting comment started with:

    “You may have refused to publish my words, hostess, but you cannot ignore them.”

    Yes. Since I am the blog administrator here I get to choose whether or not a comment should be posted. Your latest rant (with links) has little (if NOTHING) to do with the topic at hand. All you did was disparage President Trump because you hate him so much. That’s fine…to each his own. But don’t complain when I choose to not publish your comments.

    You are free to take your rants elsewhere.

    Oh…one more thing. FYI: Fellowship of the Minds: NFL rules say players should stand for national anthem; ratings drop.

    Excerpt:

    Here are the NFL’s rules governing the National Anthem, found on pages A62-63 of the NFL Game Operations Manual (Time):

    “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem.

    During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

      I merely reported the facts, just as you do.
      If I am free to take my rants elsewhere, then I am also free to make them here. Like you, I have a voice; Unlike Trump, I do not have a national audience.

      Of course, if you do choose not to publish what I wrote, that indicates that you cannot refute it. After all, I merely posted what Trump himself actually said; those words weren’t made up.

      Perhaps you didn’t pay particular attention to my last paragraph. I suggest you re-read it, since it DID have something to do with the topic at hand.
      But I do think that the President of the United States has more important things to consider right now than what a handful of pro football players do or don’t do. Am I wrong to think that?
