Congresswoman Kneels in Protest of Trump NFL Remarks

Jackson Lee Kneels During Congressional Speech 'in Honor of the First Amendment'

Yes, on Monday evening Texas Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee stood before the House of Representatives and criticized Trump for his recent comments. The current hurricane names were "lily white". I kneel in front of the flag and on this floor, I kneel in honor of the First Amendment.

"You can not run for it, and I kneel in honor of them", Jackson Lee said. "We will continue to stand in the gap and racism is going to be under our foot", she said.

Jackson Lee was speaking out against Trump after he suggested that anyone who knelt during the national anthem should be fired by the NFL.

Patriots' Tom Brady Named AFC Offensive Player of the Week
Brady, whose team beat the Texans 36-33 at Massachusetts's Gillette Stadium, was part of a demonstration with teammates. Brady was a vocal supporter of Trump during last year's election.

Then she took a knee herself.

Even better, she tweeted right at Trump when she posted a video of the act, just daring him to respond. She also explained the First Amendment protects people who want to kneel in front of the flag or during the national anthem.

"That is racism. You can not deny it, you can not run for it, and I kneel in honor of them", she said, and dropped to her knees. "But I felt that I needed to show my empathy for these young men, many of them I know".

Marlins slugger Stanton hits 58th home run
If Stanton is able to join them, he will have ended a 16-year power drought of 60-home run hitters. Sammy Sosa had three seasons of more than 61 homers (1998, 1999, 2001).

Then came Representative John Lewis (D-Ga.), another black radical with an nearly identical voting record, who tweeted, "There is nothing wrong with kneeling down to stand up against injustice". "That is racism. You cannot deny it, you cannot run for it, and I kneel in honor of them". Three teams-the Tennessee Titans, Seattle Seahawks and Pittsburgh Steelers-stayed largely in their locker rooms during the national anthem at their respective games, though Pittsburgh offensive tackle Alejandro Villanueva, a former U.S. Army Ranger who served in Afghanistan, stood at the edge of the field and sung the anthem.

"On this floor, I kneel in honor of the First Amendment". "That is racism. You cannot deny it, you cannot run [from] it, and I kneel in honor of them".

And how better to stand with America, the flag and our soldiers than by disrespecting the anthem. "It's always appropriate for the president of the United States to defend our flag, our national anthem and the men and women who fought and died to defend them", she said Monday. "Those words were missing from the statements I read despite the fact that 70 percent of National Football League players are Black and many of them, as well as their family and friends, have experienced racial profiling by police that leaves too many unarmed African Americans injured or dead". And this time get it right.
