To the NFL players who took a knee during the playing of the National Anthem.

To NFL Players Who Take A Knee

So, you want to take a knee?

Take a trip to Valley Forge in January. Hold a musket ball in your fingers and imagine it piercing your flesh and breaking a bone or two. There won’t be a doctor or trainer to assist you until after the battle. Wait your turn while listening to the screams of pain from the wounded. Then take a knee.

Go to Normandy where man after American man stormed the beach, dodging dead bodies and withering machine gun fire,…the very sea stained with American blood. Imagine that your fellow players are your dead brothers in arms. Then take a knee.

Take a knee in the sweat soaked jungles of Vietnam. Over 60,000 Americans died in those jungles.There was no playbook or million dollar contracts for doing your job, but they understood what our flag represented. When they came home, they were protested by their fellow Americans. Then take a knee while they spit on you.

Take another knee in the blood drenched sands of Fallujah in 110 degree heat.. Trade in your pads for a Kevlar helmet and battle dress…You’ll have to stay hydrated, but there won’t be anyone to squirt Gatorade into your mouth. And watch out for those IEDs when you take a knee.

There’s a lot of places to take a knee. Americans have given their lives all over the world. When you use the banner under which they fought as a source for your protest, you dishonor the memories of those who bled for the very freedoms you have. That’s what the red stripes mean. It represents the blood of those who spilled it defending your liberty.

So while you’re on your knee, pray for those that came before you, not on manicured fields striped and printed with numbers to announce every inch of game yardage… but on nameless hills and bloodied beaches and sweltering forests and bitter cold mountains… every inch marked by an American life lost serving that flag you protest.

No cheerleaders, no announcers, no coaches, no fans… just American men and women on the land, air, and sea, delivering the real fight against those who chose to harm us… so you would have the opportunity to dishonor their service by “taking a knee.”

You have no clue what it took to get you where you are… but your “protest” is duly noted. Not only is it disgraceful to a nation, it points to your ingratitude for those who chose to defend you under that banner that will still wave long after your stats and game jersey are forgotten…

If you really feel the need to take a knee, come with me to church on Sunday and we’ll both kneel before Almighty God. We’ll thank Him for preserving this country for as long as He has. We’ll beg forgiveness for both of our ingratitude for all He has provided us. We’ll appeal to Him for understanding and wisdom. We’ll pray for liberty and justice for all… because He is the one who provides those things.

But no protesting allowed. There will only be gratitude for His provision and a plea for His continued grace and mercy on the land of the free and the home of the brave.

May He continue to bless America, the ignorant and selfish sinners we all are. What an incredible gift He has given us!

Army veteran Alejandro Villanueva was the only player on the Pittsburgh Steelers’ team to come out of the locker room and stand for the anthem.

Patriot Of The Day: Alejandro Villanueva

Too many Americans worship athletes as heroes. On that sideline, the real hero was easy to spot. He was the only one standing.

Athletes, you want to kneel? Great! Please go kneel at the graves of the kids killed by gang bangers, thugs, illegal immigrants, sexual predators and malnourished children that suffer at the hands of an apathetic corrupt Government.

Alejandro Villanueva

Villanueva was a Captain in the United States Army, in which he served as an Army Ranger and was decorated with a Bronze Star for valor. He played college football for the Army Black Knights, being recruited at one position and playing three others during the course of his career. After serving three tours of duty in Afghanistan, he signed a contract with the Philadelphia Eagles on May 5, 2014, after working out in a regional showcase.

During last year’s season, Villanueva said in response to then-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick protests:

“I agree that America is not perfect, I agree there are lot of issues with minorities in this country, I agree we should do something about it.

But I don’t know if the most effective way is to sit down when the national anthem of the country that is providing you freedom and providing you $60 million a year is the best way to do it when there are black minorities that are dying in Iraq and Afghanistan and protecting our freedom for less than $20,000 a year.

I just know I’m very thankful to be an American. I will stand very proudly and sing every single line of the national anthem every single time I hear it. I will stop whatever I’m doing because I recognize I have to be very thankful to be in this country.

I tell my teammates all the time, especially when they talk about contracts, I’m one of the cheapest left tackles in the NFL [but] just by being an American I’ve won three lotteries. And if you have a little money on top of me, that means I have 3½ lotteries.

I’ve been very fortunate to travel a lot and see what it’s like in different countries. I’ve experienced true racism that happens in Europe with a lot of minorities. It’s very difficult for me to be here in America, as grateful as I am, in the best country in the world, and have people not be pleased about it.

I think he’s obviously upset and I think we all agree, the majority of America would agree, there’s an issue with minorities in our country, the way some groups in our population are being treated.

I just think not standing up for America is a little bit unfair on his part because he’s not taking into consideration the minorities that are fighting for the flag, like myself, the thousands of people who lay their lives so he can express himself.”

In an interview with ESPN, he also said:

“Whenever you include an entire country in one of those protests, I think you might mislead some people who truly wake up every single morning trying to give everything, including their lives, to protect this country. It’s a little bit unfair to group everybody under that category.”

This guy didn’t kneel during The National Anthem, he painted.

The Toledo Walleye invited artist Joe Everson to perform The National Anthem before Saturday’s home game against the Brampton Beast. Watch what followed:


This is Bob Ross meets patriotism meets hockey. It is amazing!

No matter how many renditions of the Star-Spangled Banner you’ve seen as a sports fan, there’s a good chance you’ve never witnessed an anthem like the one before an ECHL game this weekend.

The Toledo Walleye invited artist Joe Everson to perform the national anthem before Saturday’s home game against the Brampton Beast, and he brought a unique twist to the duty that not many could pull off. Everson is more a visual artist than of the recording variety, so his singing was accompanied by a live canvas painting performance that left fans captivated.

While it wasn’t quite clear what exactly Everson was painting at the start, his grand finale was well worth the wait.

It doesn’t get any more patriotic than this!

US Army reservist Sam Kendricks, 23, from Mississippi, was running pole in hand when he heard the first notes of the Star-Spangled banner.

The second lieutenant was set to perform one of his attempts to qualify that day… but instead stopped dead in his tracks and let go of his pole to respectfully stand still.

This may be the most patriotic thing ever!

When thinking of America there are two things that may come to mind, patriotism and guns. This video is the perfect mix of the two, and one no one gets hurt.

Musical Targets is a “source for armoury harmony” – a place where gun enthusiasts in Colorado can shoot and make music at the same time.

Here, the folks at Musical Targets show off their aural and rifle skills by playing the tune for the US national anthem, the Star-Spangled Banner.

Molson built a beer fridge that can only be opened if you sing ‘O Canada’!

They should do something like this in the United States. Only require that Welfare recipients sing the US national anthem to collect their checks.

Enjoy!

We’ve built our most Canadian beer fridge for Canada Day and there’s only one way to get inside – sing O Canada. It’s time to start practicing our national anthem.

As part of our second American Vacation, the Red Bull Racing-livered Running Showcar was in in the US in New York’s Liberty Park; and, just for the fun of it, played our host’s national anthem. All together now: “O say can you see by the dawn’s early light…”

As the National Anthem comes to it’s final lines, there is nothing that gets you as psyched up for the kickoff as the pre-game flyover by one of our armed forces jets. Patriotism is at its highest when we see them streak over the stadium with the roar of their engines as the game is set to begin.

God bless America!
