America Has Spoken! Look What the Reuters Poll Shows!

Photo Couresy of: Congress forbids DOD sponsorship of patriotic events at sports venues beginning Oct. 1.

On Friday, President Trump made the statement during a speech in Huntsville, Alabama “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when someone disrespects our flag to say, `Get that son of a b**** off the field right now! Out. He’s fired! He’s fired!“.

Then Roger Goddell, Commissioner of the National Football League then responded with this statement: “Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players, and a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs and players represent in our communities.”

President Trump responded with this tweet:

Mike Tomlin, Head Coach of the Pittsburg Steelers kept his team in the locker room for the big game. Except the former Army Ranger,  Afghanistan Veteran, West Point graduate and current tackle Alejandro Villanueva- could not be contained. He went outside the locker room and bravely stood for his brethren who have given their service, life and limb to defend the First Amendment so that his teammates could protest. This fact was not lost on Villanueva.


Interestingly, Reuters performed a poll – the results were not a big surprise to the average American. And once again, the minority gets the most attention with the MSM. This poll shows that President Trump is once again, standing with the majority of the American people.

Reuters Poll breakdown as reported by CBS:

72 percent of Americans said that they thought Kaepernick’s behavior was unpatriotic. Another 61 percent said that they do not “support the stance Colin Kaepernick is taking and his decision not to stand during the national anthem.”

The Reuters poll of 2,903 adults was conducted between Sept. 6-12. Kaepernick’s protest went public on Aug. 26.

The poll included 1,481 people who identified as white and 612 people who identified as racial minorities. Of those two groups, 70 percent of whites disagreed with Kaepernick’s stance, while only 40 percent of racial minorities disagreed with the 49ers quarterback.

President Trumps last comment regarding standing for the Anthem is:

“This has nothing to do with race, I never said anything about race. This has nothing to do with race…this has to do with respect for our country and respect for our flag.”


It seems that more individuals on teams are starting to stand for the flag. Derek Wolfe of the Broncos questions players protests. As quoted from Time: “I stand because I respect the men who died in real so I have the freedom to battle on the field. Paying tribute to the men and women is why I stand. But everyone these days likes to find a reason to protest and that’s their right. It’s America and you are free to speak your mind,” Wolfe said. “I just feel it’s disrespectful to the ones who sacrificed their lives and it’s maybe the wrong platform. But like I said to each their own it’s AMERICA! The greatest country in the world and you reside here, then why do you stay. A lot worse places in the world to call home. Proud to be an American.”

Are you part of the 72% who believe we should stand for our Anthem and place our hand over our heart?

  6. If the blowback from these pubescent nba athletes is of the same nature as it has been for the #1 sport in our country from the consumer, the nfl, I feel badly for there sport with the shit storm heading there way.

    If I bring political beliefs to my job and actively protest at my job I would be fired….protest outside of your employment.

    Read the rule in the NFL rule. The players and their supporters should read their rule book. The owners and the head of the NFL should follow it.
    The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the NFL League Rulebook. It states:
    “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem.
    “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition..

    In regard to the team I bleed purple for, have not bought a current hat, an updated team jersey, Diggs and have no interest in paying the $300. a ticket X 3 – Done.

    you have stepped on the wrong side of history my friend. We are not here to respect the nfl. Your to respect the consumers that purchase your nonessential shit.

    Like many, your arrogance will be your downfall, do not doubt this.

    Good day.

  7. As a Ex-Marine I will never take a knee.If you want to take a knee to make a point- have the offense or defense team take a knee everytime you have 4 and 1.

  8. The hell with the NFL. I stand for the flag and what she represents Those who do not disrespect our fallen men and women
    Who gave there lives so these monkeys can play with a ball. I will not watch another
    Game until they show respect for our
