Leftist Martha Raddatz attempts to paint Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin into a corner and in the same process paint President Trump’s defense of America as being racist.
Defending America is likewise mislabeled as racism by these same anti-Americans in support of open borders. Presumably we could keep out white people without them complaining because racism against whites is acceptable and Democrat-RINO endorsed, but otherwise the propaganda brush is working feverishly.
She asks, “With all the urgent issues, Korea, health care, why is the President even talking about NFL players and disinviting NBA players to the White House?”
Mnuchin lays out some basic logic for Raddatz, giving the disrespectful slugs on the field and in sports management an opportunity to do the right thing by our country, if they happen to be among those who respect our nation, and to be forced into civilized behavior if they are among the agenda-pushing liberals who couldn’t respect America less.
He says, “The NFL has all different types of rules. You can’t have stickers on your helmet. You have to have your jerseys tucked in. I think what the President is saying is that the owners should have a rule that players should have to stand in respect for the National Anthem.”
He continues, “This isn’t about Democrats, it’s not about Republicans, it’s not about race, it’s not about free speech. They can do free speech on their own time. That this is about respect for the military and the first responders and the country.”
Raddatz had the choice of language used by President Trump as the next item on her “gotcha list,” asking Mnuchin if that is the kind of language he should be using. Mnuchin replies that “the President can use whatever language he wants to use.”
Raddatz, either demonstrating her ignorance or simply her commitment to the destruction of this nation asks, “Is it not about the First Amendment, is it not about their First Amendment rights?” Mnuchin tells her what she likely is only pretending not to know, saying, “No, it’s not. They have the right to have their First Amendment off the field.”
“This is a job,” says Mnuchin, “and the employers have the right, when the players are working, to have rules. So why didn’t they wear stickers, why didn’t the Dallas Cowboys, why were they not allowed to wear stickers in response to people they wanted to pay respect to?”
Rather than asking Americans if they agree with President Trump, or more likely because they did ask and Americans overwhelmingly do, she throws up a poll without the specifics of the wording of the question, that indicates twice as many Americans find President divisive as do a unifier. She follows that up by reading the full text of a cookie cutter endorsement of his players by Patriots owner Bob Kraft.
Based upon that weak premise and in total ignorance of the true divisive factors of her sponsors George Soros and Hussein Obama, Raddatz asks, “So this goes just beyond this issue, we’re talking about dividing the country. [The Obama objective beginning with Ferguson] Is this a unifier?”
Mnuchin gives it right back to her in her craggy mug, saying, “I think the President was trying to unify the country, because the National Anthem is about unification. And I think the owners have the right. They should have a meeting, they should decide. They make the rules and they should decide.”
Free speech extends to the public more directly than it does to the athletes in their workplace. We have a right to speak out and have a right to be disgusted by what we see and to stop supporting it. President Trump also has a right and an obligation to speak on behalf of the nation to encourage the cowardly owners to do what they should be doing in reining in corralling their unruly livestock.
We’re under no obligation to watch their games and the more they insist on insulting and angering the American public, the fewer dollars that will be available for those big salaries. You better be putting some of that big money in the bank, boys. You might need it.
You disgust us, we don’t like you, and we want to see you asking, ‘what did we do?’ as you look for a regular job as an illiterate, unskilled ingrate.
