NFL’s ratings have begun to bounce back a little in the last several weeks.
The reason for that is the league’s problem with anti-American anthem-kneelers dwindled. Some players still continue to kneel like Carolina Panthers new safety Eric Reid.
But this happened during the National Anthem in Dallas Texas for the Cowboys game and it was rather interesting.
The Dallas Cowboys organization won’t tolerate any of their players kneeling for the National Anthem.
On Sunday, the Jacksonville Jaguars visited the AT&T Stadium in Dallas and got smoked by the Cowboys. The final score was 40-7.
The number one defense in the league certainly didn’t look elite at all.
But before the game, during the National Anthem, a protester sneaked past security and urged people to “vote Republican” and “stop abortion.”

The Star-Telegram reported, “A fan breached security during the national anthem at AT&T Stadium before the Dallas Cowboys’ game against the Jacksonville Jaguars afternoon. The fan jumped up on the platform above the suites in the west side end zone and held up a sign urging people to vote Republican in next month’s election.”

His name is Rives Grogan.
Grogan walked up and down the platform for almost all of the anthem before the stadium’s security finally reached him.
It turns out that Grogan is a pastor of a Los Angeles outreach ministry called New Beginnings Christian Discipleship.
But before he was forced to go back to his seat, someone stole his sign and tore it up.
Grogan’s act happened just in time for the November elections.
Every election always seems like it’s the most important election.
But this one is ultra important that could dictate how President Trump’s administration goes in the final two years of his first term.
There are 435 seats in the House of Representatives and 35 seats in the Senate up for grabs come November.
If the Democrats take control of the House than that would be a disaster.
Democrats want to impeach both President Trump and Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh
That’s why Grogan’s act was important.
But he’s preaching to the choir in Texas.
Democratic hopeful Beto O’Rourke is challenging Sen. Ted Cruz’s seat in November.
O’Rourke has skyrocketed to national fame amongst liberals.
And Hollywood elitists after his comments about players who kneel during the National Anthem in the NFL.
His comments were so popular that the video went viral.
O’Rourke said, “Non-violently, peacefully, while the eyes of this country are watching these games, they take a knee to bring our attention and our focus to this problem to ensure that we fix it. That is why they are doing it. And I can think of nothing more American than to peacefully stand up, or take a knee, for your rights, any time, anywhere, in any place.”
Obviously he forgot about the millions of Americans who are deeply offended by that act.
No matter how many times you tell liberals they still don’t get it.
Freedom of Speech and right to protest, covered under the First Amendment, only applies from government rule.
It does not apply to your job.
Imagine if employees brought politics to the workplace everywhere you went.
That would be awful.
That’s what these NFL players did.
Instead of fixing issues in their communities they just made a display out of it on a national stage.
Cruz shot back at O’Rourke after the viral video and said, “When Beto O’Rourke says he can’t think of anything more American — well, I got to tell you, I can.”
And that’s despite the millions of donations he’s received from Hollywood elitists despite not residing in Texas.
Do you agree with what Grogan did?
