NFL fumbles ahead of Super Sunday: AMVETS’ #PleaseStand ad rejected as too “political”

David MenziesMission Specialist

 

It’s Super Sunday and even before the coin toss, the NFL has fumbled again on the issue of disrespecting the Star Spangled Banner.

The NFL invited AMVETS, the largest U.S. veteran’s service organization, to place a free ad during Super Bowl 52.

AMVETS' idea for an ad was simple and profound in a two-word message reading: “#PleaseStand.”

But the NFL rejected that ad fearing that some might consider it a political statement.

It’s now crystal clear that the social justice warriors have taken over the commissioner’s office.

If asking Americans in America to stand for the American national anthem is deemed to be a political statement, the NFL is now irredeemable.

It’s also apparent that the people in the NFL front office never really were all that concerned about players taking a knee during the anthem.

James why don’t you offer to take somebody else out for coffee.?? I find your politics ridiculous and boring. You are simply untrainable..

You’re a lousy conversationalist with poor taste and questionable political views…
Why would I want to go for coffee with you .!!!
I know I am enlightened along with an extended vocabulary that isn’t Mono sibylic as well as a great conversationalist who’s topics are varied and current. You possibly find me fascinating but however I see nothing productive culminating from listening to you yammer on in person when I can’t stand you yammering on here.. what could I possibly learn from you listening to you chatter on in person when you fail to impress me with your written word..! lol
James get over it… I don’t except your proposal for a date… and no matter how much insulting and badgering and whatever other tactics that you’re using is not gonna change my mind and I will not go on a date with you so get over it.
Besides.. I only go on dates with women that I like.!!

That’s your problem James… You’re delusional.. you have feelings of social entitlement provided to you by the nipple you were raised on.. you think you’re something you’re not and that your experience is equivalent to those beyond your years and that’s impossible and furthermore you have been educated beyond your intellectual level.. in short you don’t have the ability to remain focussed and you believe that everything is all about you…

James… I’ve never made a false claim about you yet… I have asked questions in an effort to figure out what your malfunction is but I have never slandered you.
And I would be is Loopy as you are if I would give a flake ( no disrespect intended but you are a flake ) any access to my personal information… but I do have an idea… You can leave all your personal information on this thread such as email address, phone number for Skype (Skype now) and other means of contact and I’m sure other people would be glad to take you up for debate.. but then again maybe not but you can try.
That would sure give you some credibility rather than making demands on everybody else what they should do for you or they get belittled and name called by you. Kmon James… don’t be a hypocrite buddy .!
Let’s see if anybody else wants to talk to you or get in touch personally.
Prolly not but you never know.. Let’s try to go back to what this thread was all about with socialists and SJW’s disrespecting not only the veterans but the flag in their country by kneeling for the national anthem…

Dan Mancuso,

Flat Earth (his safe space name) proved my point for me without even realizing it.

There is nothing more to say.

Have you read your posts on The Rebel – you are batshit crazy with your extreme right views and yet you want to point fingers at others when it comes to mental issues?

Good luck with that.

LOL

I’m sorry James.. I will try to use shorter sentences and smaller paragraphs so that you don’t feel overwhelmed in your response and have to regurgitate the same reply over and over.!!

Flat earth. .Flat water,

Keep thinking that. You are proving my point for me and you don’t even realize it.

I guess you can be anything you want to be and believe whatever you want, when you hide behind a computer and a fake user name.

How ironic that someone from a younger generation has more balls than someone from your generation, where the claim is made that you belong to a generation of REAL MEN. I would say that you have embarrassed your generation by acting like a millennial wanting their safe space.

Anyway, nothing more to say here – you have proven yourself to be completely pathetic and that’s good enough for me…Flat Earth Flat Water, if that is the name your parents gave you.

LOL.

You should listen to yourself… You not only have anger issues but you are delusional.. ( possible schizophrenia candidate)

but don’t you think we should go back to what this thread was all about and that was the social justice warriors disrespecting the national anthem and the flag.!!

Flat earth. .Flat water,

You worked in the oil sands. You don’t have dick.

You don’t have a clue about me, but again – I was more than happy to prove you wrong, but see you need to actually leave The Rebel.

You can’t keep making false claims about me – but ignore or dodge my offer to prove you wrong completely either in person or on Skype.

I am sure you are intelligent enough to know that if you did say yes, you would indeed be proven wrong and thus no longer have the ability to make your ridiculous claims. You of course can’t have that.

I know James… We’re all millionaires with extensive real estate holdings and we’re all semi retired that post on this site… Most of us have holdings in Europe as well as the USA.. myself I just sold my Spanish Villa on the French Riviera so I could retire in Canada. You’re delusional get some help.. You should actually read Dan’s post again for the first time..because if you did either you would realize that some symptoms apply to you and you should get some help or you would be in absolute denial because too much of it applied to you… Either way..,, Sell some of your real estate and get some help.

Of course if you were actually willing to come out of your safe space – you would clearly see that I am not delusional at all immediately.

How convenient.

Dan Mancuso,

Well good thing none of that applies to me.

I have owned my own successful business for 15 years now, I own homes in Canada and America, I am happily married for 14 years and live a great life – perhaps that’s why I am not triggered by fear mongering, conspiracy theories, propaganda and full blown lies like you and many others here are.

I say what I mean and mean what I say online and offline. I don’t have Ezra and The Rebel do my thinking for me like you do.

Your life must suck, so you think Justin is the devil and the cause of your strife. Blaming everyone else except yourself. Look into that.

Symptoms of schizophrenia
Schizophrenia is often a life-long condition.
A sizable proportion of people with schizophrenia have to rely on others because they are unable to hold a job or care for themselves.

Many may also resist treatment, arguing that there is nothing wrong with them.

Some patients may present clear symptoms, but on other occasions, they may seem fine until they start explaining what they are truly thinking.

The effects of schizophrenia reach far beyond the patient – families, friends, and society are affected too.

Symptoms and signs of schizophrenia will vary, depending on the individual.

The symptoms are classified into four categories:

Positive symptoms – also known as psychotic symptoms. For example, delusions and hallucinations.
Negative symptoms – these refer to elements that are taken away from the individual. For example, absence of facial expressions or lack of motivation.
Cognitive symptoms – these affect the person’s thought processes. They may be positive or negative symptoms, for example, poor concentration is a negative symptom.
Emotional symptoms – these are usually negative symptoms, such as blunted emotions.
Below is a list of the major symptoms:

Delusions – the patient displays false beliefs, which can take many forms, such as delusions of persecution, or delusions of grandeur. They may feel others are attempting to control them remotely. Or, they may think they have extraordinary powers and abilities.
Hallucinations – hearing voices is much more common than seeing, feeling, tasting, or smelling things which are not there, however, people with schizophrenia may experience a wide range of hallucinations.
Thought disorder – the person may jump from one subject to another for no logical reason. The speaker may be hard to follow or erratic.
Other symptoms may include:

Lack of motivation (avolition) – the patient loses their drive. Everyday actions, such as washing and cooking, are neglected.
Poor expression of emotions – responses to happy or sad occasions may be lacking, or inappropriate.
Social withdrawal – when a patient with schizophrenia withdraws socially, it is often because they believe somebody is going to harm them.
Unawareness of illness – as the hallucinations and delusions seem so real for patients, many of them may not believe they are ill. They may refuse to take medication for fear of side effects, or for fear that the medication may be poison, for example.
Cognitive difficulties – the patient’s ability to concentrate, recall things, plan ahead, and to organize their life are affected. Communication becomes more difficult.

Flat earth. .Flat water,

Wow, what a fucking pussy you are. I asked you specifically because you made claims and assumptions that couldn’t be more wrong, so I will willing to prove you wrong and prove myself right about you.

I stand by the things I say – be it in person or online. I don’t hide beyond my computer like you do making assumptions and claims, but not willing to back it up. Only an idiot would perceive any of this as a person threat, so no surprise there – but no threat was actually made on any level unless of course you deem proving you wrong as a threat, which I imagine is exactly the case.

In addition, people with heated opposing views online arrange Skype debates on You Tube all the time, so I would be happy to do that with you and you wouldn’t have to leave your safe space, but I suspect you prefer to cuddle with your like minded sheep here and spew ignorance.

I was willing to back myself up, but you are not man enough for that. We know that now, so that’s settled. Oh well.

Have a great day.
commented 2018-02-05 16:33:51 -0500
By the way James… There are many people it’s not all that post on this site whose views are diametrically opposed from yours… Why don’t you invite them out for a little debate over some lattes and see what their reaction would be..

So until you’re inviting us all out for lattes James… I would perceive what you’re saying as a personal threat.!!!
commented 2018-02-05 16:29:39 -0500
James are you lonely…?? Because I’m sure you’re doing all of this for attention and if you are there’s not only organizations available for that kind of thing but I’m sure your time would be better served in a different forum..
commented 2018-02-05 16:26:12 -0500
And sorry James… It’s just common sense that you don’t meet up with unstable people on the Internet… The only time I’ve ever met anybody on the Internet is when they had something for sale.. you know or perhaps a potential employer offering employment or something like that… Why would I want to meet you..!!!! But I do give you credit for your attempt to turn this around and put it back on me because I don’t want to meet some nutcase whose views aren’t even of those who resemble somebody of voting age.. But like I said James why would I meet anybody that has such disdain for the elderly and hold them in contempt is if they’ve done something wrong… Old age comes for you to stupid you should be thinking about that and how the government is going to be looking at you when that time comes.

And no… I am not a keyboard warrior I’m just somebody that says what’s on my mind when the opposing view is similar to that of a spoiled child with limited life experience and even less intellect.
commented 2018-02-05 16:18:17 -0500
Well… I haven’t heard anybody volunteering security for me or others like me.. but I believe you to be one of them backstabbing little SJW’s that may carry out your perceived threats hours maybe even days or months after the crowds and vanished… Sorry James you’re just too weird .!
commented 2018-02-05 15:08:50 -0500

Please. You are a keyboard warrior and you wouldn’t get up from you chair to meet anyone with an opposing view – even if Ezra crowd funded security for you.

You are all talk and no action. You are not a man.
commented 2018-02-05 14:56:06 -0500
You have proven yourself far too emotionally unstable with some really warped views and your subject to impromptu fits of rage so why would I want to meet anybody like that..
So… you stick to posting the garbage that you think that you would like us to believe and we will keep trying to de-program you by posting commonsense things that appeal to people with a healthy dose of commonsense..
commented 2018-02-05 14:11:08 -0500
Flat earth. .Flat water,

You make a lot of assumptions and say a lot of bullshit. I suggested that we meet up in person to dispel all of that, but you prefer to stay behind your keyboard to continue to make assumptions and say a lot of bullshit.

I guess you didn’t lean from your generation on how to be a man. You are more like a millennial wanting their safe space.
