Former Democratic Congresswoman Urges All NFL Players To Kneel During National Anthem

Having left public office in January, former U.S. Congresswoman from Maryland, Donna Edwards, has decided to get involved in the current meme of the moment battle over respect and freedom of 'speech' between President Trump and The NFL...

We have to admit we are a little confused.

We thought that if you disrespected anything American, you were automatically a 'Russian puppet', but now it's 'cool' to bash America's flag, its anthem, and The White House?

For some reason, Edwards decided to tweet this shortly after...

So do as I say, not as I do?

This seemed to sum up what we suspect will occur should this former congresswoman get her wishes...

  The NFL players should follow her advice. Then the NFL games can slip just behind “I love Lucy” reruns in the TV ratings.

Guarantee NFL owners are shitting their collective pants, right now.

They made a deal with the Devil...and let shitskins take over the rosters.

Now...they will pay the Fucking price. I'm in Maryland. I just heard on the radio, the Ravens are second most valued team, after the Cowpokes. Like close to $2 billion!

When these Billionaires start taking it in the shorts....haha!...watch shit get real entertaining!

This is turning into the bestest football season in my 55 years!!!

Haha! NFL...co-opted by libs and shitskins! Ball is in your court, owners. ( pun intended)

kneeling used to be a symbol of humbling one's self in front of a king.Since when has it become a symbol of defiance?And one more thing - the Democrats are creating a precedence of disrespecting a president they don't like.This will grant legitimacy to disrespect any Democratic president as well...

Clearly they don't read history, in WWII and later, kneeling was usually the prelude to something quite different. It wasn't a sign of being in charge. They can confirm this with ISIS if they are not too sure.Have they considered going on all fours and making baa-ing noises ? Maybe they could rainbow-lube themselves up just in case their NWO/MIC or jihadist Western masters drop by."on your feet soldier, and quit blubbering!"

@JSBach. Dont despair, be happy. Its like Trump said, when he went to Manhattan, as a non drinker. He saw he was surrounded by all these weak minded lushes and thought, ''wow, great. this is the competition?'' Libtards are the same as lushes. Ineffectuall, effete and soft minded, emotional, incapable of reason.

No alky is one good thing about Trump.Now, if the fat fuck would apply the same discipline & get serious, he might have enough time to shape up and lose a quick 20 pounds.He's at least 30 #'s overweight and I wouldn't be surprised if he has a heart attack within 2 years.By now, Melania's clawing the walls. Maybe desperate enough to email Carlos de Weiner !  lmaoOne more observation :What's bothering me about Trump....If he was truly fighting the commie rat bastards and not an overpaid actor, within six months those excess pounds would be gone forever. Instead, he's looking fatter.

Agreed as to the weight. Trump does need to get in better shape.The "most beautiful piece of chocolate cake I've ever seen - trust me" - days are OVER.Melania's re-decorating dude......do you even KNOW how the Trump family handles this (biz, deals, R.E. - etc.)?Akin to doing biz with the hordes of NYC...just a different swamp address.....Trump needs to do pushaways, and listen to as to the flab....

Diplomats and politicians often have atrocious diets. Sometimes they need to just taste the over-rich stuff given by well-meaning hosts, and make sure their own people or family help them out with getting something a little more homely later on. At least he has the health benefit of not being heavily on the sauce unlike so many.

Im sure they are. I genuinly hope these guys take her advice. Same with the NBA. Do it. I LOVE watching people I can't stand fuk up by the numbers, especially when I don't have to do anything I wasn't already doing, I just get to sit and watch. Its like they completely forgot that us normie white guys are THE key demographic for them. Not only are we the most likely to twatch the games, we are also who advertisers spend the most money to reach. Once we stop tuning in, why would bud light spend those millions to advertise?  Every now and then something happens that makes me wish I still had cable(i admit it, Im weak) but everytime  I see something like this, I know I made the right choice. Doing my small, insignificant part to kick them in the teeth.

The entire US  sports industry is in flux now:  cable TV unbundling is coming. Unbundling prompts customers to consider what entertainment they want to pay for.  The sports industry will lose the revenue stream from people who don't watch sports.  All this controversy means they are going to lose revenue from people who like sports but hate assinine political posturing.Less money to ESPN and the sports channels means less money to the leagues.

You and that hypocritical Congressman woman need to be taught a lesson. Whereas I support your right to voice even the most idiotic of statements, you do not have the right to stand on the bodies of the many dead Americans who fought for and preserved that freedom for you. Taking a knee is that. You insult the very people that have given you the greatest gift mankind has ever known. A chance. A real chance at freedom. You spit on graves with your remarks. Okay - so be it. You continue and personally I'll consider it an act of war. Think you'll win? Really? I'd really consider that for a long long time. And by the way - Ken Andrews sucks & so do Pomeranians.

Hopefully the American people unite in recognizing the hypocrisy, the lies, the endless accusations of black americans and black and muslim people around the world and shout out with A mighty voice, we are not guilty for your inequality, we are not guilty for your violence, you are guilty for your actions and for rejecting that G-d has not made all people equal. We will no longer put up with your lies, and endless stupid accusations, and we are not afraid. In G-d I trust.

Drudge showed 49ers/Rams game pics, the stands were half full in the 49ers new stadium. It was a sellout, but half the ticket holders just stayed home. Isn't that a waste of money? I dunno, they all saved $100 by not parking their cars there. $100 to park a car. At an NFL game. Please lecture us some more Roger.

Don't forget the 8$ hotdog, and 10$ beers. At least thats what I seem to remember. Haven't been to a game in years, mainly due to the fact that i haven't lived near a major sports team stadium in years. Now, I don't go for an entirely different reason. They've always been a ripoff, but now its just another thing Ill gleefully boycott.
