We live in a time and place where "Conservative Pundits" expect the VP to do shut up and do or say nothing at a nationally televised event where the Flag, Anthem disrespected.



Let that sink in.

What a fucking idiot.

1. He knew they were going to do it.
2. He knew tens of thousands of fans were going to stand respectfully.
3. He went to the game anyway because he wanted to grandstand.
4. if they didn't kneel, he probably wouldn't know what to do since he probably had appointments based on this theater show.

You better stop fucking around with irrelevant shit like this and spend the time getting your orangutan on a leash. He apparently wants to regulate late night comedy and y'all act like THIS is the problem.

Unbelievable.

Politicians shouldn't walk out of an event where the performers are insulting the Flag and Anthem?

Nice use of taxpayers money to sent Pence & family to Indy for the weekend so he could walk out of game knowing full well the 49ers players would kneel.

Interestingly this is not getting the kind of coverage here locally that I think Donnie and Mikey were hoping for but anything for the base and hopefully another distraction for Monday morning. What important things are coming up this week anyway that the public needs to not pay attention to ?

To each his own but that was a very expensive publicity stunt which I see no one supporting Donnie Dotard complaining about but hey - it's only money and better to guy healthcare, the environmental laws etc. to save money.

You really think this wasn't planned ? Puulllleeaasseee.....

The unity of the country is at stake when the media is 24/7 about identity politics of various divisive subgroups.

We will die as a country without unity.

His Muslim girlfriend yanked that leash HARD! Kaepernick might be working out like a demon to get in football shape, but as long as he's dating her, stirring up trouble, and riling football fans, he's pissing in his own wheaties.

But hey, I'm sure his next gig as a club bouncer will really make all that practice worthwhile!

Here is the real question: Does an employer (NFL) have the right to demand that its employees (Football players) must agree with the employer's (or their customers) political views? Does an employer therefor have the right to demand that their employees stand for the national anthem, rather than kneel in respect for the national anthem?

I think employers should have no such right, whether NFL or McDonalds or any other employer. The NFL player's union should take this case to the supreme court, and get a ruling that NO employer may demand from its employees that they express a certain form of political opinion. That way, the deranged fans that demand political submission from their teams/players/employees would be seen for what they are: Intolerant bullies.

Pence only left because after all the savage sodomizing, he couldn't completely stand up for the anthem, either.

OK! CLASS! Sit down,shut your mouths & pay attention.
A man kneels when proposing to a woman,out of respect & honor..
Kneeling is sign of respect in religions.Catholics genuflect
When one is knighted by a Monarch.

"The custom of genuflecting, as a sign of respect and even of service, arose out of the honor given to medieval kings. In modern times, when the folded flag of a fallen veteran is offered to the family, the presenting officer will go down on his left knee, if the recipient is seated."

Fuck Mike Pence & any Republican that think they are to good to kneel before our country,flag & anthem.
It's their ego that keeps them from kneeling or they just too lazy to make the effort.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genuflection
It's a sad state of affairs when people pay big bucks to watch grown ass men play a game & get paid more than minimum wage.Shallow minds have to be entertained.

The proper way to salute the flag is with right arm outstretched or used to pound the supplicant's chest while shrieking SIEG! HEIL! until blood pours from his eyes.

Alternatively the supplicant can fire a belt-fed weapon into the sky while shrieking SIEG! HEIL! until blood comes out of his eyes.

A real fucking patriot would have just picked off the offensive negro traitors with sometime loud and beltfed, exactly as the Founding Fathers intended.

It's quite obvious Pence was late for his daily Kazakh salute.

So you're of the opinion that if the supreme court rules that it's ok for the players to protest like they are doing, the fans that are now against it will return and all will be well again?

Not at all. Pence is a representative of the United States Government. The symbols being disrespected are symbols of that Government. It's perfectly reasonable for him to leave.

It's normal in sports to fine teams for disrespecting anthems -- Even if their FANS are the instigators and not the Players.

Russian players fined for leaving IHF game during anthem:

Hong Kong Football Group fined by FIFA for FANs disrespecting Chinese Anthem.

Again, NFL Football Players are routinely fined for wearing Breast Cancer Eyeblack, Dancing in the Endzone, Flipping the Bird, Saying "Dammit" once in an interview, wearing unauthorized 9/11 Remembrance Gear, etc.

The kneeling for the national anthem and flag, however, isn't punished.

Is Flipping the Bird free speech? How about "Dammit"?

Should a McDonald's employee be fined, suspended, or fired for wearing an "I love ISIS" button right next to her "Double Bacon for 39 Cents!" button?

Should an Actor be let go from an Winnebago's ad campaign after tweeting "Fuck the US Army, Oppressor of Filipinos!"

Can a waitress be fired from Bob's Big Boy for chanting "Meat is Murder" as she places hamburgers in front of customers?

Many of the same people saying "NFL player have the right to kneel!" were the same ones wringing their hands about Tebow praying in the End Zone, worried that Football was "Endorsing Religion".

Tebow is the reason the NFL banned messages on Eyeblacks.

Just making up shit, are we? I did not say anything about the fans. Fans may or may not choose to attend or watch. But if SCOTUS rules that players cannot be forced to express their respect for the national anthem in a certain way, perhaps all these fans will back down and let the players choose their own expression of respect.

And if the fans do not approve, one might ask the appropriate question: Why do so many NFL fans hate the constitution? Why do so many NFL fans hate freedom?

That means the owners agree with the players. They can fire players for not representing the company just like any other employer. Free speech doesn't apply to private employment. Never has. .

The supreme court disagrees with you. Maybe you should bring it to their attention.

So then what exactly is your gripe?

Or do you even know anymore?

All Great Americans should be protesting Pence for attempting to subvert our Constitution and The Flag by mixing religion with politics.

It’s nice to see that pretty much all Americans disapprove of the Trump/Pence GOP stunt.

Those idiots thought that they would draw support for this publicity stunt, where they attempt to harm Americans and our economy. Not today, Failed Losers! Take that crap to North Korea where it belongs.
