Next step? Leftists aim to spread anthem protests beyond U.S.A.

Mark LathamRebel Host

Tonight on Mark Latham’s Outsiders: The Left-wing journalist who wants to bring America’s divisive national anthem boycott to Australia.



Plus how political correctness has humiliated an Australian Army Officer.

Our panel of Peter Baldwin and Peter Crawford discuss where their old Left colleagues have gone wrong on free speech and education reform.

There’s ZEG’s cartoons, the Outsiders’ Outhouse and Left Lunatic of the Week (guess who?)

The national anthem protest is certainly divisive. So many professional athletes in the United States have gone down of one knee that most people are wondering what to make of this protest.

The President of the Untied States has said things that seem racist. The American public, by and large is against that. Pro-athletes have chosen this method of protest, to genuflect toward a greater power rather than stand at attention to a petty and bigoted world leader.

It is quite moving, and quite correct.

Andrew Mirlach very good point.

When you get paid that much to play children’s games you should shut your pie hole because someone paid the ultimate price (adult job) so that you can . Spoiled brats . I will not watch any sports if these spoiled brats keep going .

Yes , the NFL has upset all the bubbas that frequent their games or watch them at home on their 65 inch TVs. But let me give you a little bit of an observation , perhaps a wee bit dated but I think still valid.The old Pontaic Silverdome had a massive parking lot capable of holding thousands of eager tailgaters . Many of these bubbas would come from Minneapolis and Green Bay , Chicago etc. But if you think these were beer swilling neanderthals , think again. The majority I met were business owners , car dealership owners , big agricultural equipment dealers , many driving motor coaches adorned with you got it: American Flags and lots of memorabilia . Many were vets of foreign wars. They were more than happy to offer people a beer or first class burger cooked on vast BBQ’s if you engaged then in friendly converstaion before the game.
So what ,you might say. Well the owners of these teams flying in on their corporate helicopters are obviously oblivious to their fan base. Patriotic Americans who love their flag and love their Stars and Stripes. So we have a bunch of high paid but very ill informed players making a demonstration that insults the majority of the fans that attend the games and pay their salaries..Big mistake. BIG MISTAKE.
Pandering to Kaepernick with his knee demontration was a classical cave in out of fear of reprisal from the usual suspects, the race baiting leftist democrats. Goodell had the opportunity to nip this in the bud by just enforcing the rules that Kaepernick had agrreed to in his contract.His failure lead directly to this fiasco and there is no way the NFL can beat back against the patriotism of their fans.
Like one of my old favourite cartoon characters SnagglePuss , the NFL should just exit stage left , or maybe stage right if they want to join the right side of the issue.

MSM would have one believe that the NFL protests are gaining support across America.

That is a total lie.

The crowds booing at Texans game was louder than the person singing the anthem. Projectiles thrown onto the field during the game at its beginning were very telling about the temper of the crowds over this issue.

The bulk of NFL teams are made up of wildly over-paid morons, who didn’t care about civil rights until last Sunday. Why should they? If they were not playing in the NFL and enjoying all the luxurious comforts that their wealth can provide them – including a pass for all their felonies – they would all be doing time or working at Footlocker.

Here in Texas, football is third only to God and guns, and I can assure everyone that if any player for a university or high school team who takes a knee during the anthem, they would be kicked into the locker room and kicked off their team so fast, it would make everyone’s heads spin.

#BLM sanctioned the death of five Dallas policemen last year, not to mention terrorist incidents against public property. To associate with them is to associate with criminal activities.

Slaves Kneel, free people Stand in respect of those who sacrificed everything so you have the freedom to choose.

Well of course they aim to spread anthem protests elsewhere. Leftists are me-too sheeple who cannot produce anything or create anything they only tear down other people and their accomplishments. It is a massive case of envy.

The globalist agenda is to destroy national pride in the west. So any project that appears to be working in one arena will be taken up in other arenas. The football players are being played like fiddles by the fascists. Hmm. Fascist Fiddles. I kind of like that.

Quietly, I hope they try to. The Loud Left simply keep making fools of themselves. And believe it, there are even bigger fools who buy into it.

Paul Taylor – I suspect that the snowflakes would think that that is a win. They have taken something beloved by millions and ruined it. Do you think that the snowflakes were footwall fans? No, I think that they will delight in taking from others because they think that most of society has somehow taken from them and from the underprivileged in the world.

It’s like the old joke of how the outlook in the US and the USSR were different – if a farmer in each land were to be granted one wish then the American would wish to be as successful as his affluent neighbour while the Russian would wish for his affluent neighbour to be as poor as him. The snowflakes don’t want to make or earn anything. Snowflakes want to bring things crashing down around them so that everyone else has to live as anxiously as they feel they life.

With all the fans boycotting the NFL games , burning jersey, etc. I should think the snowflakes and twinkies would rethink their strategy. But then again that’s whey they are “The Looney Left”.
