Trump’s America: City Official Labels NFL Protesters ‘Monkey’ and ‘Turds’
The NFL has another racist on their hands
In the midst of the Trump-NFL conflict, a lot of people have spoken up against Trump that were previously silent, including individuals that are not involved with the National Football League. For example, Cleveland Cavaliers player LeBron James openly called Trump a “bum,” while four-star General Michael Hayden penned an op-ed in The Hill defending the players’ right to protest:
U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain’t going! So therefore ain’t no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!

“As a 39-year military veteran, I think I know something about the flag, the anthem, patriotism, and I think I know why we fight. It’s not to allow the president to divide us by wrapping himself in the national banner. I never imagined myself saying this before Friday, but if now forced to choose in this dispute, put me down with Kaepernick.”
But for every person on the side of the Kaepernicks (players who kneel during the anthem), there are a ton of people opposed to this idea. Some have an absolutely valid opinion: they feel it is disrespectful to the men and women who have served in our military to defend our rights (as one soldier indicated to President Obama during a CNN Town Hall in September 2016). However, there are others that have a much darker view clouded by delusional ideas of pseudo-patriotism and racism.
These bigots argue that anyone who kneels is subhuman, and deserving of the worst kind of insults/punishments for their behavior. We call these individuals the inhabitants of “Trump’s America” because they mimic his rhetoric in terms of promoting hate. Trump, for instance, started off this whole movement by calling Kaepernicks sons of a b*tches that needed to be fired. His followers continue this type of speech to even more grotesque levels.
Earlier we reported on one of these persons, a fire chief named Paul Smith who labeled Steeler’s Coach Mike Tomlin a “no good n*gger” for encouraging his players to not participate in the National Anthem before the game. Sadly, we have another person, who is an even higher public servant. His name is Stephen V. Pina, and he was former parks commissioner for Brockton, Massachusetts. In a now deleted Facebook post, Pina had this to say about the protesting players:
“Turds, your dumbass isn’t paid to think about politics….dance monkey dance.”
Of course, Pina, like Smith before him, has attempted to apologize, but his true colors have been shown to the world. It should come as no surprise then that, in an attempt to save face, Pina resigned:

He and his racism will not be missed in the slightest.
