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.

ALERT ALERT

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.
