Entire Fed Dept RESIGNS to Protest Trump – But Here’s What the Media Is Hiding…

Last week, the mainstream media gleefully reported that the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities had resigned in mass protest over President Donald Trump’s “racist” comments on the Charlottesville riots. However, these media outlets are refusing to report on one major part of this story.

What the mainstream media did not mention is the fact that this committee was created by Barack Obama, and it had not even met this year. The committee was full of liberals who despise Trump and were just waiting for any excuse they could use to humiliate him.

CNN reported that actor Kal Penn tweeted out the resignation letter he and the other group members signed.

“Reproach and censure in the strongest possible terms are necessary following your support of the hate groups and terrorists who killed and injured fellow Americans in Charlottesville,” the members wrote in the letter. “The false equivalencies you push cannot stand. The Administration’s refusal to quickly and unequivocally condemn the cancer of hatred only further emboldens those who wish America ill. We cannot sit idly by, the way that your West Wing advisors have, without speaking out against your words and actions.”

The committee members also used the letter to bash Trump over policies they say threaten to diminish civil rights, damage the environment, cut funding to arts and risk the overall safety of the country.

“Speaking truth to power is never easy, Mr. President,” the letter read. “But it is our role as commissioners on the PCAH to do so. Art is about inclusion.”

Clearly, these former committee members are in cahoots with Obama and are trying to help him in his goal of destroying Trump. SHARE this story so we can EXPOSE THEM!

Millions Of Illegals In For A Brutal Surprise—Trump Cancels Yuge Obama Law

Barack Obama might very well have been the most pro-illegal immigrant president in US history.

Through numerous unconstitutional executive orders, Obama established guidelines for law enforcement and the legal system to protect illegals from deportation or prosecution.

The most famous of these policies was the DREAM act, which protects illegal minors. Nevertheless, Obama signed many other executive orders, including one which protected illegal parents as well.

Fortunately, President Donald Trump has taken a hardline stance against illegal immigration. He wants nothing to do with Obama’s executive orders, and his administration has promised to eliminate them one by one.

This week, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly followed through on that promise and revoked the executive order that protected illegal parents.

An Obama-era immigration program intended to protect parents of U.S. citizens and legal residents from deportation has been formally canceled, fulfilling a key campaign promise from President Donald Trump, the Homeland Security Department announced late Thursday.

Homeland Security John Kelly formally revoked a policy memo that created the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans program. The revocation came on the fifth anniversary of another effort that has protected hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation.

The program to protect parents was announced by President Barack Obama in November 2014 but was never fully launched. It was intended to keep the immigrant parents safe from deportation and provide them with a renewable work permit good for two years, but it was blocked by a federal judge in Texas after 26 states filed suit against the federal government and challenged the effort’s legality.

Republicans decried the effort at “backdoor amnesty” and argued that Obama overstepped his authority by protecting a specific class of immigrants living in the United States illegally.

An administration that cares more for its citizens than it does for those who illegally cross its borders has been long overdue.

The United States government has been run by pro-amnesty globalists for decades. Sponsored by their millionaire donors who benefit from cheap labor, leftist presidents and their allies in the legislative and judicial branches have made massive efforts to encourage illegal immigration.

The issues with illegal immigration are rather straightforward.

When an illegal immigrant comes to the United States, they bypass the necessary security screenings we put in place to ensure that terrorists and other criminals do not come in to our country.

Furthermore, when an illegal immigrant gets a job, they fill a position that could have been filled by an unemployed American citizen. A legal immigrant from another country could have even taken that job.

Aside from those two issues, however, the biggest problem with illegal immigration should be self-evident.

Although one might not be swayed by economic or national security arguments, the title itself should say it all: Illegal immigration is, above everything, illegal.

By supporting amnesty, liberals want to reward people who break the law. This is completely un-American, as we believe in the rule of law for everyone.

If we do not have laws, then we might as well not have a country. Donald Trump said this numerous times throughout the campaign, and the American people responded in agreement with a booming voice.

Unlike most politicians, President Trump is following through on his promises. There is no doubt that we will see the administration get rid of many more unconstitutional programs.

For now, however, we can rejoice. The rule of law is coming back to America.

Lawmakers Are Pushing To Place Ban On Wearing Head Coverings In Public. Do You Support This?

Because more and more Muslims refugees are looking to start a new life in Europe, officials and lawmakers are faced with a choice. They can either adapt their society to fit these new people’s culture or they can demand that these new people who are seeking refuge in their country to adopt European culture. Switzerland is leaning closer to the latter.

Now Swiss lawmakers are inching toward imposing a nation-wide ban on face veils. This is a pointed gesture against the woman who wear burqas as part of the country’s small minority. But the country is afraid that people might be hiding behind these religious customs in order to inflict terror or crime on innocent citizens of Switzerland…

A ban on the Islamic veils was passed in the lower house of Swiss parliament on September 27 by a tight vote of 88 to 87. Since it passed in that part of the government, it now has to go to the higher chambers of the government in order to actually be enacted into law. Many people expect that it will be a controversial issue and will probably be put to a national vote.

The ban on veils was originally proposed by Walter Wobmann, a member of the Swiss People’s Party (SVP).

Wobmann is not a fan of immigration and was successful in 2009 when he pushed for a ban on the construction of mosque minarets in Switzerland. Now he thinks veils are the next thing that need to go if Muslims want to live in Switzerland.

“Veils are an attack on integration in a free society,” Wobmann said, according to The Independent. “The ban of religiously motivated coverings in public is proportionate and violates neither freedom of religion nor expression. It does not constitute discrimination.”

If the law was enacted, face veils would be banned in all public places except for religious site and a few other exceptions.

In order to speed up this ban, supporters need to get 100,000 signatures to force a referendum. According to an August poll, a shocking majority of 71 percent of Swiss citizens support the face veil ban.

Because it is a hot button issue, the Swiss parliament is expected to stall on it. This will leave the decision to a public vote.

Switzerland has about 8.3 million people in the country and only 5 percent of those are Muslim. Out of the country’s 350,000 Muslims, just a few actually wear burqas.

This controversy has grown because recent Muslim immigrants and refugees have struggled to integrate into socially liberal European society.

For example, some Muslim boys refused to shake the hands of their female teachers. They were issued fines for their disrespectful and sexist behavior.

Two Muslim girls refused to take a swimming lesson with male peers. They were denied citizenship because of their obvious refusal to adapt to the new society they just moved to.

Belgium and France already enforce a ban on burqas. Switzerland is behind on the times and is just trying to catch up.

“It is unacceptable that you can wear a hijab in a photo but not a cap,” Wobmann said, according to CNN. “This is not a question of religious freedom but of equal treatment.”

Do you think more countries should be stricter on Muslim immigrants?

This Guy Tried to Carjack 3 Football Players at Gunpoint. They Took His Gun and Mercilessly Beat Him

Carjacking is never a smart idea. But if you decide to do it, make sure the car you choose isn’t carrying three towering football players coming back from practice. The would-be robber was left black and blue with both eyes swollen shut after his intended criminal rampage went awry in early August.

The suspect, 20-year-old Angelo Drew Martinez, was acting shady from the start. On the night of Aug 11, three unnamed football players were finishing practice when one of them noticed Martinez loitering around his car, according to KOAT7.

The player approached the heavily tattooed man and asked what he wanted. He claimed he was only looking for a ride, and the players kindly obliged.

Once inside the vehicle, Martinez changed the destination multiple times, then pulled out a pistol and told the three players to get out and give him the keys. As the players got out, the 20-year-old fumbled his pistol, and one of the players allegedly threw a haymaker, hitting him in the face.

The New Mexico man was then dragged from the vehicle, and the three athletes discovered the pistol was fake. The two teammates of the driver then jumped Martinez and proceeded to delivered instant justice to the criminal. While beating the carjacker, one of the players did find a knife in Martinez’s waistband.

Law enforcement arrived at the scene shortly after and discovered that the would-be robber had a poorly written note in his pocket that read, “give me the keys to your wip and a nobody get heart. I know where you live so don’t make me kill.”

The mugshot for his arrest has since become a viral sensation with both of his eyes swollen shut, and gashes with dried blood covering his face. Martinez was charged with four counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and an attempt to commit a felony.

This wasn’t the first time Martinez had a run-in with the law. The Daily Mailreports he was previously arrested for carjacking and shoplifting. It’s safe to say he will now think twice about trying to carjack someone thanks to the beat down these football players provided.

Kissimmee police: 2nd officer dies from injuries




KISSIMMEE, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) –

(UPDATE 8/19) STATEMENT FROM KISSIMMEE POLICE:

It is with heavy heart that we announce the passing of Sergeant Richard “Sam” Howard. Sam succumbed to his injuries this afternoon.

In the evening of August 18, 2017, Officer Matthew Baxter checked out with three males in the area of Cypress and Palmway.

Sergeant Sam Howard was in the area and responded to Baxter’s call. Details of the exact exchange between Baxter, Howard and the suspect Everett Miller are still under investigation.

Shortly after the exchange, a 9-1-1 call was received stating two officers were down. Matthew Baxter succumbed to his injuries shortly after.

The City of Kissimmee has set up a bank account through SunTrust for those who would like to donate to the fallen officers’ families.

The account will be titled City of Kissimmee – Officer Matthew Baxter and Sergeant Sam Howard. Donations can be made at any SunTrust Bank beginning Monday, August 21, 2017.

“I am so proud of the sworn and civilian members of our Department by acting quickly to identify the suspect and bring him to justice. We will mourn over the next few days….we will get through this and we love them for what they do,” said Chief Jeff O’Dell.

———————————————————————————————————-

The Kissimmee Police Department said two of their officers were shot in a downtown area on Friday night.

One of those officers has died and the other is left gravely injured, according to Kissimmee Police Chief Jeff O’Dell.

FOX 35 had earlier reported that both officers had died, based on early information.

Officer Matthew Baxter was shot and died. He was a father of four and what Police Chief O’Dell describes as the “epitome of an officer.” He served three years with the force.

The other officer shot, Sergeant Richard “Sam” Howard, is in grave condition. Chief O’Dell says that there is “not much hope he will survive this.” He is a 10-year veteran.

The shootings happened as the two officers were near the intersection of Palmway and Cypress streets, around 9 p.m. on Friday.

Police reported in an early Saturday morning press conference that Everett Glenn Miller was taken into custody at 11:30 Friday night and charged with 1st degree murder. Watch that live stream below.

Kissimmee Police Chief O’Dell says Miller will be transported to Osceola County Jail wearing Officer Baxter’s handcuffs.

The initial charge for Miller was a concealed weapon inside a bar.

The two officers were responding to a call of suspicious activity around 9 p.m., Chief O’Dell said during a news conference.

“At approximately 9:32, we received our first call… that our officers were shot,” he  said.

Reportedly, a scuffle led to the officers being shot. Baxter was shot first. Howard was when attempting to back up Baxter.

O’Dell said other responding officers found the two officers on the roadway when they arrived at the scene. Chief O’Dell said both were taken to Osceola Regional Medical Center.

Neither officers were able to fire off their weapons, according to police. Neither weapon was even removed from the officer’s holster.

Police say that neither officer were wearing body cameras either.

After the shooting, Miller hid inside Roscoe’s Bar & Packaging at 2344 N. Orange Blossom Trail, where he was found by police detectives.

These detectives say that Miller reached for his waistband inside the bar when confronted by police, but the detectives tackled him and took him down.

Chief O’Dell originally said there were four suspects in total. Three had been taken into custody, and one was still being sought early Saturday.

However, as of Saturday morning’s conference, O’Dell has stated that they are not pursuing any further arrests.

He went on to tell reporters that it has been a dark day for his colleagues as they try to cope with this tragedy.

“These were beloved fathers and husbands and sons,” said O’Dell.  “We haven’t experienced this in over 25 years.”

A small memorial is already growing outside of the Kissimmee Police headquarters.

Chief O’Dell says that “We sincerely appreciate our community” for all their support during this time.

Before details of the shootings were immediately known, community leaders and other law enforcement officers began sending condolences over Twitter.  This was before it was learned that one officer had died and the other was in grave condition.

“Heartbreaking loss of two of Kissimmee’s finest officers. Please join in prayers for families, friends, and law enforcement,” Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs tweeted.

“Sending out prayers,” tweeted Orlando Police Chief John Mina.

The Winter Park Police Department echoed the sentiment, “We stand with our brothers and sisters at the Kissimmee Police Department. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone involved.”

“Hard night to look at Twitter. Just want to reach through the screen and comfort the families — our Family,” posted Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood.

Early Saturday, President Donald Trump tweeted, “My thoughts and prayers are with the @KissimmeePolice and their loved ones. We are with you!”

Less than an hour after two police officers were killed in Kissimmee, Florida, reports of two officers being shot in Jacksonville.  Read updates on that developing story here.

Below is our Facebook live stream of our coverage, which includes one of Chief O’Dell’s news conference.

Mom Drowning In Crumpled Car, Sees Who’s Watching Her From The Window

Kristy Irby and her toddler (left), scene of her sinking car (right)

Kristy Irby was traveling down a rural Mississippi road with her toddler in the backseat when her car flew off the road and plunged into the nearby creek. As they sank into the cold water, she desperately tried to break free, but everything was locked down. That’s when she looked at the window and immediately got chills down her spine.

The Pelahatchie mother said a deer had come in her path, and her initial reaction was to swerve to avoid it. At her rate of speed, this little move caused her to fly off the road, landing in the water. As her car was being pulled under and into the current, she lunged to the back and got her child out the seat, before trying to roll down the windows and escape. The windows wouldn’t budge because the electrical power to them went out, the Clarion-Ledger reported.

With everything locked down tight and no way out, Kristy began to pray. Seconds before saying “amen,” the windows of her car began rolling down on their own. God was watching over her and gave her a way out through miraculous means of which only He is capable, but His work wasn’t done yet. As water rushed in the car, Kristy and her toddler still struggled to get out. Kristy started screaming, but then she saw “Shane,” according to WAPT.

Officer Shane Gibson

“I was just screaming for help. It seemed like it was forever, and then I saw Shane,” Kristy said. Officer Shane Gibson arrived to her rescue right in time, and he was the second answer to the mother’s urgent prayer. The officer ran into the fast-moving water, risking his own life to save these strangers, who were now pinned under a fallen down tree and their car.

“I could still hear them screaming and I was like, ‘Gosh, I don’t know how I’m going to get them out of this car,’” Gibson said. The rescue was tricky. With the obstacles in his way and the water pulling him in a different direction, grabbing them was a challenge. If he made one wrong move, they would all wash downstream.

With the power of God and answered prayer on their side, Gibson was able to successfully pull the mother and child out of the water. Through the whole ordeal of a crashed car and a water rescue, not a single scratch was found on anyone involved, which only adds to this miracle.

The mother felt that there was no other explanation for her windows suddenly rolling down, allowing for the rescue, other than God’s favor over her family. Without a doubt, God was there and heard Kristy’s prayer. He protected everyone through this, every step of the way, including Gibson who was the right person for the important part he played.

VIDEO: Thug Brutally Assaults White Boy – Gets CRUSHING News From DA

This horrifying video has gone viral after its recent release on LiveLeak. The video itself is so controversial that it even comes with an “anger warning” for the viewers. It would seem that this brass-knuckle-wielding thug completely unprovoked unleashed a brutal assault on an unsuspecting white 12-year-old. The video itself has gotten a lot of attention and many people are completely outraged by the delinquent punk.

The video starts out with the bratty thug wannabe smiling at the camera and showing off his brutal weapon. The wanna be thug is 16 years old and for reasons unknown decided to target an innocent white 12-year-old.

Apparently the two had been involved in some sort of argument or dispute before and this smug punk chose to deal with the argument in typical thug fashion. With a sucker punch to the head.

To make matters worse he first equips himself with a pair of brass knuckles. The young thug smiles at the camera and then gives the camera the finger with a disgusting air of arrogance.

He then sneaks up behind the 12-year-old and drills him right in the face, knocking the pre-teen unconscious.

If this wasn’t bad enough the cowardly bully proceeds to unleash a furry of brass-knuckle-blows to the unconscious boy before he is finally dragged off by a female bystander.

Luckily, the whole thing was caught on video. The victim‘s parents later took the victim to the police station in order to file a police report.

According to the police affidavit the bay came in with a bruised eye, a big cut on his neck, and a large hole in his neck that will probably require stitches. Even more sickening is the part of the police report that documents the victim’s awakening from his black out. The victim reported that he awoke and “He thought he had gravel in his mouth, but it was pieces of his teeth.”

Too bad for this wannabe thug police did not let this brutal assault go lightly. After seeing the video and the police report the District Attorney has decided to try the thug, Kane Millsaps, as an adult. Millsaps is now facing first-degree battery and for possession of the brass knuckles felony charges.

If convicted Millsaps could face up to 20 years in prison. Most who have seen the video agree that this is a very deserved punishment for low-life scum like Millsaps.

Please share this story on Facebook and let us know what you think should happen to this thug-in-training.

Man Unnerved By Cop’s Odd Behavior In Patrol Car, Quickly Texts Wife

Matthew and Dana Manley

A man was taking his 5-year-old niece home from the hospital after just receiving her daily dose of chemotherapy, and he caught the attention of a St. Charles County cop, who was watching for moving vehicle violations. He was pulled over, and the situation quickly became unnerving for the uncle and the little girl, when the cop began acting oddly in his patrol vehicle. That’s when the driver sent a text message to his wife she would never forget.

Matthew Manley makes the emotionally exhausting trip every day with his sick little niece, who is struggling with cancer. With each day being filled with caring for this child and helping her to get better, other tasks in life have fallen through the cracks. One such errand he hadn’t gotten around to was transferring his plates from his previous vehicle to his current ride, which he became painfully aware of when he passed by a St. Louis area cop standing watch for motorists like him.

Manley told KTVI that he felt nervous as soon as he saw the officer, knowing that he was likely to be pulled over because of the plates. Sure enough, the patrol car came up behind him with lights flashing. Manley anxiously waited and watched as the cop, Officer Shawn Birdsong, began digging around in his car, which gave the man a very uneasy feeling. He sent a message to his wife, Dana Manley, expressing his fear in that moment.

“He texted me scared to death,” Dana told the news station about her husband’s reaction to not having any clue about what the cop was up to.

Backpack from Officer Shawn Birdsong

Birdsong eventually emerged from his patrol car holding a backpack from the trunk of his vehicle, and he handed it to Manley to give to the sick little girl. There was a care package of sorts inside the backpack, containing stuffed animals, art supplies, and clothing, along with a handwritten note the officer had slipped in there.

“From Officer Shawn:  Hope you get to feeling better real soon,” the cop’s personal touch said, along with a smiley face.

Note from the officer

Another written note was handed to Manley — a ticket for his plate problem, which the driver and his wife were not upset about. “It was his job to give us a ticket. He did exactly what he was supposed to do,” Dana wrote in a praising post on Facebook, sharing the unexpected touching gesture from Officer Birdsong. “He just made this little girl’s day a little better, and that’s what matters.”  But the officer’s kindness to the Manley’s and their niece didn’t end with the ticket.

After learning of Dana’s post about him on Facebook, the cop called to family to say thank you for her kind words, and letting the people in St. Louis know that all cops don’t deserve the bad reputation many in the city have given them. He also wanted to follow up on how their precious niece was feeling, and he has since called back three to four more times since then, for the same caring reason.

His simple effort in picking up the phone to show that he’s thinking about this little girl in the middle of a huge fight for her health, has moved Dana to tears. “Cops are doing their jobs, but they’re people too,” Dana said. “I don’t think people realize that anymore.”

With all the kind cop stories getting the much-needed attention to change the mindset society has about police, this one is particularly special since it came out of the St. Louis area — the epicenter of hate for law enforcement that ignited the movement. It’s time to give credit where it’s due, and that’s to all the brave men and women who suit up every day to make a difference in their communities, unlike the people who complain and them.

Muslim Refuses ‘Racist’ Bag Check, Officer Wipes Entitled Grin Off His Face

After Muslim activist Hesham El-Megily (left) became belligerent with NYPD officers and their sniffer dogs, he quickly learned that his religious entitlement doesn’t matter to security officials. (Photo source: FacebookLivedoor Blog)

Before a Muslim activist was about to board a ferry, the security called him over for a sniffer dog to perform a routine bag check. After the liberal Muslim not only refused but also became belligerent with the officers, they decided to show him that his perceived entitlement doesn’t mean a thing when it comes to security.

Hesham El-Meligy isn’t merely your average sign-toting, politically correct liberal — he’s an Islamofascist. Siding with the progressive left, El-Meligy constantly spouts liberal rhetoric condemning anyone who quotes Islam’s countless violent commands to show that the ideology embodies terrorism. When he can’t defend his logic, as is the case with most liberals, he quickly resorts to accusations of racism and bigotry.

Just as El-Meligy was preparing to board the Staten Island Ferry, security called him over for their random bag check, just as they had done for countless others before him. Because of his religious supremacy, El-Meligy deduced that simply because he is a Muslim and Egyptian-native, he should be given special treatment.Immediately, he refused the officers’ request. However, it was when he began to disrupt the peace and insult the security officers that things took a drastic turn.

Egyptian-Muslim activist El-Megily was placed under arrest and hauled off by NYPD officers at 8 a.m. on Wednesday after he threw a terrifying tantrum at the terminal. SILive reports that the officers slapped handcuffs on El-Megily and proceeded to search his backpack when he became threatening at the officers’ request to search him.

Witnesses confirmed that El-Megily was acting belligerently toward officers, which caused them to grow suspicious of him. One Twitter user revealed that the Muslim activist began insulting the officers after they asked if he would allow their dogs to sniff his belongings. Disproving El-Megily’s claim that the search was caused by racial profiling, Bob Sacamano added that he was being searched by officers and sniffed by dogs at the very same time.

As expected, El-Megily immediately took to social media to slander the NYPD, accusing them of racial profiling and, ironically, infringing upon his constitutional rights.

“I have no doubt that many (people) are in fact stopped randomly, but the manner this was done in my particular case made it feel different,” said El-Meligy. “It is an infringement of my right to travel freely without molestation and due process of the law.”

Of course, El-Megily fails to mention that his “right to travel” doesn’t include those who are acting belligerently and suspiciously. Although his Facebook post garnered much support and sympathy, now that the truth has come out, many are expressing their outrage over his deceptive claims.

Thanks to the liberal media’s willingness to spread this Muslim activist’s allegations while purposefully ignoring eyewitness accounts, El-Megily is preparing a lawsuit against the NYPD that could change security customs forever, further endangering millions of Americans.

“There’s no science to it,” said NYPD spokesperson Det. Kellyann Ort. “It’s like flipping a coin. Many other people had their bags checked during that same time frame.”

El-Megily didn’t have to take the ferry if he didn’t agree with their customs. In fact, he’s lucky that the officers allowed him to still board after the way he acted. The fact of the matter is that El-Megily didn’t want to be treated equally like all the other non-Muslim Americans who were searched that day. He wanted special privilege because of his race and religion.

In fact, El-Megily admits that his accusations aren’t based on any evidence that he can provide. He falsely claims that Islam is peaceful and has no connection to terrorism. However, regardless of the Quran’s 109 violent commands and the prophet Muhammad’s brutal modeling of them, the proof is in the terrorism-prone Muslim community.

No other religion is flying planes into buildings or strapping bombs on themselves to kill unbelievers. No other religion has a global movement to overthrow all governments in order to establish worldwide Sharia law, and no other religion is using false accusations of racism and bigotry to accomplish it.

Mike Ditka Discovers Easy Way To Make Every NFL Player Respect National Anthem

Iron Mike Ditka suffers no fools. He is the former hard nosed coach of the Chicago Bears,  a two-time Super Bowl champion, and two-time NFL Coach of the Year.He ran a tight ship and famously came back to work in a few weeks after a heart attack.And this was years ago, without recent medical advancements.He was being interviewed about the NFL and the topic, of course, came around to the scandalous behavior of the still unemployed Colin Kaepernick and the total malcontent Marshawn Lynch who have both gone out of their way to disgrace America.Ditka has the right solution and every single coach in the NFL should listen and do exactly what he says.If so we would stop this problem dead in its tracks.Listen up guys because literally your careers hang in the balance.“Well, here’s the thing. When we live in a society that pays attention to athletes, say, as greatly as they do to Kaepernick, then we’re foolish. I mean, athletes’ opinions are no different than anybody else’s, they’re no more significant than anybody else’s. They’re no more important than anybody else’s.“Kaepernick would be an unknown, a complete unknown – nobody would know who he was – without the game of football, without the sport he’s playing. And not to respect that, you’ve got be a pretty unintelligent person, I would think.“Because I don’t care what your preferences are, you can have anything you want to. But what he has was given to him by the game of football. I think it’s important to me that some of these young people playing the game start giving something back to the game. And respect the game the way it should be respected instead of acting like a bunch of fools out there.”

Radio Host:  “No doubt about it. Hypothetically, Coach Ditka’s on the sidelines and one of his players takes a knee during the National Anthem, what happens to the player in that case?”Ditka: “He doesn’t play for me ever again.”
