Louisiana deputies boycott high school’s football games after anthem protest

A group of sheriff's deputies who typically provide volunteer security detail for football games at a Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, high school have decided to boycott the school after players and cheerleaders knelt during the national anthem last week.A group of sheriff’s deputies who typically provide volunteer security detail for football games at a Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, high school have decided to boycott the school after players and cheerleaders knelt during the national anthem last week.

Several members of the Bonnabel High School team and cheerleading squad on Friday took a knee during the national anthem — a growing practice started by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick to protest racial injustice in the U.S.

As a result, some Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies have declined to work voluntary shifts at future Bonnabel games, The New Orleans Advocate reported.

“These kids are following Colin Kaepernick’s footsteps, and (the deputies) are frustrated with the situation,” Sheriff Newell Normand told the newspaper. “But like anything else, there are some people who feel more strongly about it than others.”

He said the deputies are simply exercising their rights, “just as the kids have the First Amendment right to express their own views.”

Concessions should also boycott these teams. THis refusal to honor our nation is racist and ignorant. These High School immature and uneducated kids are protesting slavery which ended hundreds of years ago in the US.  Yet some will join ISIS who funds itself by selling humans, and sends captive women to the sex slave markets of the world. These kids are uninformed hypocrites. >Liberal teachers know it is easy to get morons to do what you want

Can point a flashlight in one ear and the light will come out the other ear in this ignorant wimps.... These students need a history of this country.   Instead of PC.

I'll bet everyone of these obama's sons are illeterate besides being good for nothing racist lazy thugs. Everyone of these useless negroids will end up in jail. These America hating ingrates should go back to Africa. In the words of American Patriot John Wayne; America love it or leave it!
Well said, brother. !!

Love those deputies!!!  We have our rights, too. 

Stupid people that don't even know what they are protesting about. Oh, that's right, they don't teach American history. They will be on they're knees soon enough to the new dictatorship.

They don't have the right to use Tax Payer supported events to express their personal opinions and ideological bent... These events are not private (conducted on private property or without public funds); therefore, the team should be told such conduct must end, or the Team will be suspended from further participation in the Public School's athletic program.  The Public School's must respect the Public's view of American exceptionalism and their heritage... such conduct denigrates their heritage and is extremely offensive.

Directed prayer and other displays of personal ideological preferences have been banned by Public School Boards ... because they may offend someone... This type of disrespect for our Nation certainly offends a large number of tax payers and should not be permitted... If these disaffected students want to express their outrage, over their national heritage, let them do so in a privately supported event... not as part of an officially sanctioned pubic school event.

Our president fathered this movement.  That will be his legacy, to demean the country that made him the first black president (HUGE MISTAKE), and sadly it will be Colin Kaepernick's 15 minutes of fame.  Two niggers who were given wonderful opportunities to make a positive difference and they've both blown it.  Sorry folks, but I believe in calling a spade a spade. 

You're right on, dude.

God bless the deputies and shame on any parent or fan of this team who shows up to another game if you disrespect this countries flag you don't deserve for someone to whiz on you if you were on fire.you are scum.

Thanks Deputies for your respect.  let the disrespectful and unthankful dummies get their own security or better yet... let the school boards shut down any school event that displays such disrespect...

SWEET: Republican Representative Introduces Resolution To Expel Nancy Pelosi From Congress

Louisiana Republican Rep. Ralph Abraham has introduced legislation to expel Speaker Nancy Pelosi from the House of Representatives.

Abraham’s resolution accuses Pelosi of a “vicious crusade” against President Donald Trump.

“Nancy Pelosi’s vicious crusade against our lawfully-elected President is nothing more than a politically-motivated witch hunt and it must be stopped,” Abraham said in a statement obtained by Fox News. “She has disgraced the people’s House and weaponized the Speaker’s gavel for her party’s political gain.”

“House Democrats spent nearly three years obsessed with election meddling only to dwarf any such efforts with their own deceitful plan to nullify the 2016 election and prevent President Trump from winning in 2020,” the statement continued. “I have introduced a resolution calling for her to be expelled from the House and for the Speaker’s Office to be vacated.”

The text of the resolution, which is most definitely not going to pass the Democrat-controlled House reads: “Resolved, That pursuant to Article 1, Section 5, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution, Representative Nancy Pelosi be, and she hereby is, expelled from the House of Representatives and the Office of the Speaker is declared to be vacant.”

Fox News notes that constitutional clause holds that “Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behaviour, and, with the Concurrence of two thirds, expel a Member.”
