Ok, I’m just going to say this right here: When a person who has dark skin or a person with light skin extrapolates racism from a comment that had nothing to do with race, that person is obviously what they are complaining about.
Exhibit A is Texas Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee.
Now only is this woman one of the dullest knives in the drawer, but take a listen to this nonsense for blasting President Donald Trump for racism because he simply tweeted out that the NFL owners should begin firing players who won’t’ show respect for the American flag or the national anthem.
President Trump blasted players that wouldn’t show respect for the flag or the anthem.
“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, you’d say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He’s fired,'” Trump said Friday at an Alabama rally for Republican Sen. Luther Strange.
“If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL, or other leagues, he or she should not be allowed to disrespect …,” Trump said in tweets Saturday afternoon. “Our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the National Anthem. If not, YOU’RE FIRED. Find something else to do!”

“There is no regulation that says that these young men cannot stand against the dishonoring of their mothers by you calling them ‘fire the son of a b,’” Jackson Lee said. “You tell me which of those children’s mothers is a son of a b. That is racism. You cannot deny it. You cannot run for it, and I kneel in honor of them.”
How in the world is it racist? Sure, I don’t deny it is dishonoring to their mothers, but then these guys are not protesting anything that is legitimate. Futhermore, any mother worth their salt would be looking at their sons doing this and shake their heads anyway. How many millions are they making? What injustice has America brought to them? What do they even know about what they are protesting?
“I kneel in front of the flag and on this floor,” she said as she took a knee behind the podium.
“I kneel in honor of the First Amendment,” she added, after citing the First Amendment about Congress making no law regarding certain rights, which she has voted to do on numerous occasions. “I kneel because the flag is a symbol for freedom. I kneel because I’m going to stand against racism. I kneel because I will stand with those young men, and I’ll stand with our soldiers. And I’ll stand with America, because I kneel.”
Jackson Lee doesn’t stand with America. She stands with Communists and Communist wanna-bes, and if you can believe it, was actually recommended to head Homeland Security.
This is a woman who lied about Democrats attempting the impeachment of George W. Bush, believes the US Constitution (the one she cited) is over 400 years old, wants to make welfare recipients feel better about mooching off their fellow citizens by renaming welfare, believes Social Security and Medicare ( both Socialist programs) are solvent, believes our southern border is “under control,” has suggested martial law is the way to end government shutdowns, and the list goes on and on with this woman’s moronic claims and actions.
Frankly, I’m amazed that people get so bent out of shape over this entire NFL thing and all they do is complain. But they still dishonor the Lord’s Day and go to the games, watch them on TV, pay for the tickets, parking and ridiculously priced food. Then they still complain.
Hey, if you are upset about the protests at the NFL games, there’s a way to stop it, but most people won’t do it.
Deprive yourself of watching or attending the games and encourage others to do it too.
Players won’t have jobs anymore because they won’t have anyone paying their way.
If you aren’t willing to do that, they be quiet.
Frankly, I have no problem standing at the national anthem. I’m often reminded of the origins of the anthem and what took place in our history and I give thanks to God for that, but honestly, if some guy doesn’t want to stand, I don’t care.
When they start moving to incite insurrections over it, that’s a different story.
President Trump didn’t check his right to free speech when he entered the White House any more than any NFL player did when they joined a team.
President Trump didn’t call for a law to be written, which would be a violation of his office and the US Constitution.
Trump merely voiced what many Americans already think. Could he have left moms out of it? Sure, but I think we all know that the intention was not directed at mothers of players, but the players themselves.
People can influence and push the NFL to fire those they believe are being disrespectful, and they should.
I just wish more people were as vocal when it comes to the guys in DC ignoring them, taking a knee when it comes to the Constitution and ignoring it altogether to push agendas and pass unconstitutional laws.
Perhaps it’s because many Americans have just become fat, dumb and happy. They are not at the point yet where they are begging for bread because the circus still provides the entertainment and they either still have jobs or are being fed by the welfare system that Jackson Lee wants to call “transitional living fund.”
There was nothing racist or unconstitutional in Trump’s message.
The only racism being displayed took place right on the floor of the US House of Representatives.
