The young men who attend St. John’s Northwestern Military Academy in Wisconsin know the names of the fallen. 

Their names are recited every spring – young men, alumni, who gave their lives defending America.

Jack Albert, the president the military academy, believes the blood shed by his cadets make their campus sacred ground.

So when Albert learned that some of the high schools in their athletic conference were allowing students to disrespect the national anthem, he decided to draw a line in the sand.

“To dishonor those men and their families by permitting any disrespect of the country they defended, especially on the Academy’s time honored fields of friendly strife, is in my opinion, unacceptable,” Albert wrote in a letter to parents and alumni.

“It is our expectation when teams visit our campus, proper etiquette and respect is rendered to the nation’s colors and the national anthem,” he added.

And then – the military academy president dropped the bombshell:

“It is my intention to halt any game with any team whose players or coaches decide to disrespect the colors of our nation or the national anthem of our country in any way,” he informed the Academy family.

Finally! A school that’s willing to take a stand for the red, white and blue!

“All of our cadets are taught to respect the United States of America,” he said. 

Their plan is to immediately halt the game and ask the opposing team to leave the field. 

Albert acknowledged that such action would result in a forfeit, but he told me it was the right thing to do.

“To go ahead and let somebody come in here on our sacred ground and denigrate what we are doing — with a clear conscious I could not do that,” Albert told me.

Parents, alumni and cadets overwhelmingly supported the decision.

“I’m not going to destroy what we’ve had in place here for 133 years,” Albert told me. “We have a program here and a standard here. My boys know that if they would do anything that disrespected the flag or anthem they would be dismissed.”

May God bless the good men of St. John’s Northwestern Military Academy. It’s nice to know there are still some young people who respect God and Country.

Repeat Of Confederate Flag Vilification – NFL, ESPN Attack America Thru Players

If the NFL and ESPN had been deliberately trying to devise a way to drive away viewers and patrons they would not have been able to come up a better scheme than the one they are currently jointly engaged in involving the disrespecting of America’s national symbols, our national anthem and our nation.

The attention-starved punks, the insignificant players involved in their little demonstrations are growing tiresome, beyond tiresome. So is the complicit league that condones and encourages their acts of disloyalty and the attacks upon the symbols of our nation, drawing the ire of patriotic Americans.

It was only a year or so ago that these same forces came after the symbols of southern Americans in falsely attacking the Confederate Battle Flag as being a symbol of racism. The unified anti-American forces, led by the usual suspects, the Marxist Democrats, were successful in carving out that small section of America as villains and forcing them to give up the symbols of their heritage.

That was just a beta test for what they’re doing now and both are founded upon the anti-cop, anti-white black victimhood, racist entitlement that Hussein Obama and Eric Holder founded as Black Lives Matter two years ago in Ferguson, MO, under instructions from George Soros.

Now they’re coming after a larger version of that same Southern patriot population, the American patriot, vilified for exactly the same reasons and by the same liberal left. Their goal is also our submission to whatever demands they settle upon, followed and built upon in ever increasing demands into an burgeoning state-sanctioned, race-based wealth redistribution system through the mechanisms of taxation, social programs and “civil rights” litigation and mandates.

The current national pastime, hopefully one that will soon find its way into bankruptcy as compensation for their misdeeds, is being used by the elites as a tool to manipulate the thinking of the masses. The message is clear – bad white people and bad cops are abusing poor helpless black people for the sheer pleasure of it and because whites are inherently evil.

The United States, as a country built by the evil crackers, must be made more “inclusive and diverse” as the remedy, part of the reason behind the push for non-white foreigner invaders, and lectures from the dictator about “that’s not who we are.” Communist wealth redistribution and equality for all must be the responsibility of the government to enforce, Obama and the diversity obsessed left have declared. As they define it, diversity means blacker and browner, less white. The process will be accelerated soon,  once the NFL brainwashing and other associated propaganda dissemination is completed.

The disgusting liberals at ESPN have an important role in legitimizing the desecration of our national symbols, the equivalent of their ceremonial flag burnings the Soros thugs incorporate as part of their attacks on America in disrupting Trump events.

Baseball great Curt Schilling made the point from his experience working at and being fired from the network for being conservative, not adhering to their demands that on-air talent echo their liberal perspective.

He said, “It was apparent to me early on that if you wanted to go off topic as a sports person you had to go off topic left, or you were going to get in trouble. Some of the most racist things I’ve ever heard have come out of people that are on the air at ESPN. They’re some of the biggest racists in sports commentating.”

Of course they want to keep their jobs so they obey and say what they’re told. In Monday Night’s game between the San Francisco 49ers and the LA Rams, the America-hating players were part of the on-air discussion. The commentators for the game on ESPN were Steve Young and Chris Berman.

Either they’re not men of principle, they’re liberal idiots, they also hate America or they’re cowards and there is the strong possibility that there are multiple combinations of those flaws between Young and Berman. Berman is known for his shtick of saying “he could go all the way.” He and Young just went too far.

As reported by Breitbart, “ESPN color commentator Steve Young praised Kaepernick as ‘thoughtful’ after the anthem. ‘It’s really raised consciousness,’ he claimed, ‘and it’s a wonderful thing.’ Play-by-play man Chris Berman credited Kaepernick with opening up a national ‘discussion.’”

There will be a price to pay. ESPN is already hemorrhaging viewers and the NFL will soon experience the same type of backlash that tanked Target with their perverted pervert-friendly change room policies. Americans make a choice with their entertainment dollars. You’re giving them a reason to choose something else. Baseball anyone?
