VP MIKE PENCE ON WALKING OUT OF COLTS GAME:”I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag”
TRUE PATRIOTISM: Vice President Mike Pence leaves Indiana Colts-49ers game after players kneel during national anthem.
Pence tweeted this statement:
I left today’s Colts game because President Trump and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem. At at time when so many Americans are inspiring our nation with their courage, resolve, and resilience, now, more than ever, we should rally around our Flag and everything that unites us. While everyone is entitled to their own opinions, I don’t think it’s too much to ask NFL players to respect the Flag and our National Anthem. I stand with President Trump, I stand with our soldiers, and I will always stand for our Flag and our National Anthem.
- ” Donald Trump was born on Flag Day, and I swear it’s in his blood”
Fluttering over the landscape is a massive America flag visible in all directions. Originally, the flag was closer to the street and mounted on a much taller flag pole. Then the town of Palm Beach, where anyone worth less than $100 million is considered a pauper, claimed the flag’s height exceeded zoning regulations and began fining Mr. Trump $1,250 a day unless he removed it.
Mr. Trump sued for $25 million, claiming his First Amendment rights were being violated. Eventually, Mr. Trump and the Florida town settled. Mr. Trump agreed to mount the flag on a shorter flag pole. Instead of paying the fine that by then totaled $120,000, Mr. Trump agreed to donate $100,000 to Iraq War veterans’ charities or the local VA hospital.
As he is glad to tell you, Mr. Trump usually wins in the end. He moved the flag to ground that he had his workers elevate, so now it towers over the landscape just as much as before.

Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones Takes a Stand for the Anthem: ‘If We Are Disrespecting the Flag, Then We Won’t Play. Period’
Jones was asked by Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News, about two Cowboys players who raised their fists at the end of the anthem. Jones said he did not see the raised fists. But then, Jones made a definitive statement about how he wants to see his team to handle the anthem from now on.
According to Pro Football Talk, Jones said, “If there’s anything that is disrespectful to the flag, then we will not play. OK? Understand? If we are disrespecting the flag, then we won’t play. Period. Period.”
Jones continued, “We’re going to respect the flag, and I’m going to create the perception of it. And we have. I’m not aware and wouldn’t know what you’re talking about. I’m not aware of that. . . . We as a team are very much on the page together. We have made our expression that we’re together.”
FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. – Many NFL players have expressed their beliefs by kneeling for the national anthem before games, but when a Farmington Hills student took a similar stand, he said his teacher crossed the line.
A teacher was put on leave and is under investigation after he allegedly got physical with a student who refused to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance.
The student, Stone Chaney, is a sixth-grader at East Middle School in Farmington Hills.
Stone had just started his first week at East Middle School, but his family isn’t sure if he’ll go back. Stone said he felt his rights were violated when he didn’t stand for the Pledge of Allegiance.
“The teacher consultant comes up behind me and snatches me out of my chair violently,” Stone said. “I was so confused. I didn’t know what was going on.”
Stone said the homeroom teacher tried to force him to stand during the Pledge of Allegiance.
‘I pledge to God and family’
“I don’t stand because I don’t pledge to a flag,” Stone said. “I pledge to God and family.”
The alleged incident happened Sept. 7. Stone said the next day, another teacher yelled at him for sitting down during the Pledge.
“I don’t feel safe going to that school anymore because I don’t know what they’re going to do next,” Stone said.
His father addressed the district directly during their last board meeting.
“It’s his choice to sit,” Brian Chaney said. “I don’t make him sit. And they should respect that.”
JESSE JACKSON: DEMOCRAT PARTY IS THE PARTY OF CONFEDERACY WITH CONFEDERATE FLAG AND ROOTS IN SLAVERY
- Jesse Jackson: “There is no doubt that the Democratic Party is the party of the Confederacy, historically, that the Democratic Party’s flag is the Confederate flag. It was our party’s flag.
- Jackson: “That is so much of the Democratic Party’s history, our nation’s oldest political party, has its roots in slavery”
( Political Insider ) Columnist Mark Steyn weighed in on the Confederate flag debate, saying it’s absurd that the Republican party has been linked with the controversial relic because it’s actually a “Democrat flag.”
Mark Steyn ripped the Democrat party historically, saying they were “the largest and most powerful institution supporting slavery” and that they’ve “never come to terms with the evil of its past.”
“The idea that Republicans can have the Confederate flag hung around their necks is ridiculous,” Steyn stated. “It’s a Democrat flag. The states that seceded during the Civil War were all Democrat states, that’s their flag. The slave states were Democrat states, the racist states until the 1960’s were Democrat states.”
Here’s a flashback of the Democrat’s ownership of the Confederate flag provided by none other than Jesse Jackson Jr. During an interview with Fox News contributor Angela McGlowan, Jackson stated:
“There is no doubt that the Democratic Party is the party of the Confederacy, historically, that the Democratic Party’s flag is the Confederate flag. It was our party’s flag. That Jefferson Davis was a Democrat, that Stonewall Jackson strongly identified with the Democratic Party, that secessionists in the South saw themselves as Democrats and were Democrats. That is so much of the Democratic Party’s history, since it is our nation’s oldest political party, which has its roots in slavery.”
Jerome Hudson of Human Events wrote, “How did the same Jim Crow Democrats who fought tooth-and-nail with segregationists to keep blacks on a virtual plantation become the party that now wins 95% of the black vote? Republicans passed Civil Rights laws, Democrats wrote revisionist history.”
That revisionist history continues with today’s Confederate flag debate.
