WHY DO NFL PLAYERS KNEEL
Specifically what were the NFL players who knelt last season protesting? The original reason was to protest the shooting of Alton Sterling…Two officers attempted to make a lawful arrest of Alton Sterling based upon probable cause… The officers acted on the assumption that Sterling was armed while resisting the officers’ attempts to arrest him. After Sterling was shot, officers removed a loaded .38 caliber handgun from Sterling’s right front pocket…Sterling’s body tested positive for opioids, cocaine and other drugs, results that clearly indicated that he was under the influence of a combination of illegal substances…“The system failed us,” Sandra Sterling, his aunt, said during a news conference. “He was not a monster. … This was a family man. A family man.”
A family man? Sterling was a registered sex offender, after a 2000 conviction for carnal knowledge of a juvenile, records show…He was previously arrested for aggravated battery, criminal damage to property, unauthorized entry and domestic abuse battery, records show… In 2009, he was sentenced to five years in prison for marijuana possession and for carrying an illegal weapon with a controlled dangerous substance…Yep, sounds like a family man to me…The NFL protest were, and if continued are absurd…To make it sound as if this was a stellar citizen out for a drive, suddenly stopped by police because he was black and then shot shows NFL players attempting to justify black criminal behavior; wrong, dead wrong…
AN OPEN LETTER TO JOE SCARBOROUGH
In fiscal year 2013, under the Barack Obama administration, the HHS Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) had as many as 25,000 unaccompanied children in its care across 80 shelters,
At the time, the dramatic increase in the number of unaccompanied children arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border had “reached a crisis proportion” by June 2014, with a 90 percent surge in arrivals from 2013. The shelters are the same. Why did you not react in a negative fashion then?
Now it is, “Children are being marched away to showers, just like the Nazis said they were taking people to the showers, and then they never came back. You’d think they would use another trick.” You are not a journalist but an author of propaganda, and not a very good one. Anyone with even a small helping of common sense classifies you as a buffoon. “being marched away to showers?” The same immigration laws during Clinton, Bush, and Obama are the same laws that we have today. I have no idea how you sleep at night; but you are oh so predictably evil.
WIN from WITHIN
Democrats: You must realize hatred drips from your mouth in buckets, your tongue is a sword creating havoc upon yourself. Dignity and decorum, an issue against President Trump is trumped by your lack of same. Justification of inappropriate behavior by pointing at other inappropriate behavior is dead wrong. Were your Congressman and senators elected to work for the folks you represent? Work being defined as attack, lie, twist, create fiction and hate, yes hate is not why your people were elected. It is not why you walk the halls of this great countries democratic republic. It was and is to represent the folks who elected you. There is much work to be done. Work to improve our country, which means reaching across the aisle to debate and pass those bills, which are necessary; debate not hate.
A civil war will be the end result if your behavior continues. Many Americans will die, and their blood will be on the hands of the initiator, which is your party. I would suggest you purge your party of elected officials who are escalating inflammatory rhetoric. You are pouring gasoline on the fire of war, and the fire is in your backyard. A World Cup television commercial states: “Win from Within”. I suggest you heed those words.
