President's Message

The Weak Kneed and The Noble

For the past weeks, much has been written about the dust-up involving the President, NFL team owners and players “exercising freedom of speech. The NFL has only itself to blame for this situation. Nobody is saying pro athletes must give up protest rights because of their job. They should simply protest on their own time and on their own dime like any other American. No one is criticizing their expression of their words. What is offensive is where and the manner in which they have chosen to exercise it. Owners who require their players to stand for the national anthem and flag should be commended, and those players who disagree are free to choose to play elsewhere.

President Donald Trump has been on the right side of this kneeling issue from the start, calling out league officials for allowing their paid players to use the football field - their place of business - for political protests. The president took to Twitter to suggest that stripping the NFL of its tax breaks would be smart, as taxpayers pay over 70 percent of the cost of stadiums. That money would be better spent at Veterans’ facilities.

The NFL players claim their disrespect for flag and anthem is to protest social injustice and racial intolerance, not a disdain for the military and first responders. The majority of Americans never bought this. Now, the protest has become even more muddled because, like “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” in Ferguson, it’s based on a false tale that white police randomly and rampantly target minorities to gun down. When police go wrong, they should be punished. But to say that police get up in the morning and want to purposely shoot black and brown people is idiocy. Kneeling for the anthem does nothing to advance solutions to racial injustice, police brutality, or any other social plight. It is a statement that America as a country is no longer worth standing for. It is an overbroad indictment of the greatest nation on Earth. It does nothing to bring races together and does nothing to save black lives. The way to save lives - black, white or brown - is to work with and respect each other and the police.

When Americans see these demonstrations, they see affluent, entitled individuals attacking our culture and disrespecting and diminishing the symbols that represent the values, freedoms, and rights we all enjoy. They see it as an attack on those noble souls who rush into gunfire or burning buildings. They see it as a loud slap in the face of patriotism. Many who see these things have fought in World War II, Korea, Vietnam and the Gulf to defend and protect our rights and freedoms. Many have family members who fought and paid theultimate price so that we live safe and free. Another indication that the NFL Players Association isn’t on the same political team as many of its fans are its contributions to leftist advocacy groups such as the Center for Community Change Action, a group active in the anti-Trump resistance and bankrolled by liberal foundations, including George Soros’s Foundation for Open Society.

Our nation has and is still becoming increasingly diverse in thought, values, and backgrounds. Yet, throughout our history, America has given proof through many nights (and days) that our flag is still here, and that freedom still reigns. By standing up for the noble, and rejecting the weak-kneed, we continue to give this proof. On Thanksgiving, though, make an exception. Take a knee and bow your head in gratitude for this blessed, honorable, generous, decent country, the land of the free and the home of the brave of all colors.

Tim Taylor, President
