The Sean Hannity Show


Sean Hannity is a multimedia superstar, spending four hours a day every day reaching out to millions of Americans on radio, television and internet.

Hannity has been the recipient of 2 Marconi Awards for Nationally Syndicated Radio Host of the Year and is a three-time consecutive winner of the Radio & Records National Talk Show Host of The Year Award (‘03, ’04, ‘05).

Sean is an accomplished author with two #1 best-sellers. His first book, “Let Freedom Ring: Winning the War of Liberty over Liberalism,” rode the NY Times best-seller list for a remarkable 17 weeks. Hannity’s more recent book, “Deliver Us from Evil: Defeating Terrorism, Despotism, and Liberalism,” debuted at #1 on the NY Times best-seller list and held strong for five consecutive weeks. Sean’s latest book, “Conservative Victory,” released in 2010, quickly became #1 on the NY Times best-seller list as well. More information about “Conservative Victory” can be found here.

Sean’s Freedom Concerts began in 2003 to raise awareness and funds for The Freedom Alliance, a charity which provides scholarships to the children of slain U.S. military personnel. In 2007 the concerts grew into five massive events resulting in over $10 million for The Freedom Alliance and were attended by over 60,000 people in Atlanta, San Diego, Dallas, Cincinnati, and New Jersey.

A gutsy talk-show host who always lands on the “right side” of the issues, Hannity is the host of the #1 9PM prime-time cable debate show “Hannity.” The executives at Fox were so confident in Sean’s ability to attract viewers that the #1 cable news network asked Sean to launch a weekend program. “Hannity’s America” kicked off on January 7, 2007 and immediately captured the #1 prime-time cable slot at 9PM on Sundays.

Sean Hannity’s energy, charisma and Reagan conservatism has scored high points with audiences and critics alike as he continues to be one of the hottest commodities in media.

Harley Gibney Been a long time since I seen someone comand press briefings like Sarah does. Doesn't miss a beat, no matter how clever of a trick question one of these hacks throws at her, she always gives the perfect response.
John Robella This clown dressed in an urban cowgirl costume is one of the most vile, disgusting congresspeople I have ever seen. Only Maxine Waters and Pelosi would come close to her.
Gio Otisopse By the way the media and the Left are carrying on about the President’s phone call and the circumstances surrounding the loss of 4 American heroes in Niger, one would be led to believe that there was a massive complicit cover-up going on. You know, like blaming their deaths on the existence of a YouTube video or something. I mean, after all, “what difference at this point does it make???”
Mary Gay Sarah can definitely stand her ground with these so-called journalists. I admire her so much. Keep up the good work, Sarah.
Sue Davis I think it's mean hearted when people stoop so low as to tear our President apart for making a call to console the family of a fallen soldier. What has this world come to? It's very, very sad. Frederica Wilson should be ashamed of herself and her comments. And she's a member of Congress!!!!??? Thank you General Kelly for reminding people of the selfless devotion of our soldiers and also the value of human life..........😢😢😢🇺🇸🇺🇸😢😢😢
Sadie Miller Love this lady, takes no prisoners! She is doing a stellar job, her knowledge of the White House is phenomenal! We needed someone who wouldn't back down to the buzzards in the press room....wonderful asset to President Trump!
Paul Stauffer I Know What I Signed Up For. Rest in Peace, Soldiers! I, (state name of enlistee), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God." This Congresswoman Wilson needs to be held accountable in the strongest terms possible to her sworn oath. Her twisted quote of the President is a prime example of the travesty that liberalism is.
Nya Major I keep telling people that Democratic leaders (like Rep. Frederica Wilson) and a whole host of Black Women are doing whatever they can to make Black Men not link up with the Trump administration. It's a very wicked thing going on. President Trump is FOR Black Men, and black women are trying to do everything they can to create a wedge (just because they are effective with creating wedges between black men and their children; it won't work here).
Lynne McKernan Congress Woman Wilson gets dressed like a Rodeo Clown so that she can attract the Bull. She now believes that she is a rock star, but she is more like "The Democrats Pet Rock". Who voted for her, now every one in her district denies it.
Melanie Philip I watched today's press conference and nothing much changes. Sarah does a fantastic job and she has way more patience than I would ever have with some of those reporters. I love it when she does her smack down, well worth watching.
Karen Margrave Sarah Huckabee Sanders President Donald J. Trump Lately there's been a lot of talk on this subject. What did the President say? Why did it take 4 days to find the body? Back in 1969 when "the knock" came to my door, and a solemn soldier in military uniform stood before me, I remember ever single word he said, and as was the custom then, he handed me a telegram. It didn't take 4 days to locate my husbands body, it took 4 years. It was war. I didn't get a call from the President, I got a letter, and later a plaque from General Westmoreland. Of course back then there were tens of thousands of Americans dying in the war. President Trump may not have sounded "polished" in his call, and for that we can all be grateful, because hopefully that means he doesn't have to make those calls as frequently as other Presidents. It also shows he wasn't reading from a script. So please, give some GRACE. The Vietnam war was one I protested against. It was unpopular. I was mad at our government, and I didn't want full honors when my husbands body was finally found and brought home. Looking back now, I realize how foolish that was, and I regret it. He had volunteered, he knew what he was getting into too. One day, when the family of the hero that was killed is looking back, they will remember that they received a personal call from the President of the United States, and will understand the honor that bestowed on their loved one, and the gratitude all of us have to their loved one, and them. I hope everyone will back off and let the family grieve, and adjust to their new normal. God bless them all.
Bud Roberts The buffoons questioning Mrs Sanders are not reporters, not journalists they are simply shills of the democrat party. Stop broadcasting these morons and have a weekly briefing with no cameras. They simply are not worth the time or effort.
Janelle LeJeune Isn't it amazing how the Democrats/liberals can find fault with President Trump from his hairstyle, hair color, Melania's shoes and misinterpret what the President says but can find absolutely no fault with the Clinton's accepting millions from terrorist countries, selling uranium to Russia, corruption, sexual predator/rapist, Benghazi and the list goes on...??????
Gloria Hawks Simmons Some of these "reporters" are so dense. Why would he ask if General Kelly still stands behind his comments? He just made those comments yesterday dummy!
Toni Smith Trump did a huge favor for himself when he removed Spicer and selected Huckabee Sanders to this position. She really does a fabulous job of getting the message out without letting the press make her look like a fool. She takes whatever they dish out and gives it right back to them.
Terry Finegan I think all these news reporters need to sit in a quiet room and really listen to General Kelly’s news conference. This is a man who lost his son in the line of duty. I can’t imagine how mothers and fathers feel that have lost a son or daughter. He put his heart on the table. The next day some called him racist. Shameful. I’ve not walked in his shoes, have you? Where has our humanity gone. Nothing seems sacred.
Tracy Lee Lol, just like the media, divert from the horrible behavior of one of their own and go after the reputable 4Star General. The media in the US is laughable at best
Barry Gilmore Rep. Wilson is destroying her own future. Anyone with a sense of decency and a brain knows that President Trump’s support for the military is beyond reproach. That man’s heart is in this country. Rep. Wilson is looking for “demipoints”... that’s my new word for the reasoning behind these stupid attacks by these hacks. They are looking for points to rise up the democratic ladder of obstruction.
Kay Arnold Sarah is phenomenal, as usual. This horrible member of congress needs to be removed from office. Period.
Aus Cj The press if full of morons that love to pick on everything Trump and his staff say all in an effort to split hairs and make an issue of nothing. Why has there been no mention of the video of the phone call to the widow released today which basically refutes everything the congresswoman says.
Gene Scott La David Johnson , Thank you for your service ! Black Lives Matter being invoked into your death by Fredrica Wilson is shameful ! The implication without it being said is plainly there , read between the lines ,this President can not do anything right according to democratic political figures, they will use even the death of a National Hero named La David Johnson to get the point across . I'm sorry ,but that's the way it looks ! Congress Woman Wilson has even said she is a Rock Star now that she is famous in the media for using the death of one of our finest soldiers , it is pathetic in my opinion!
Deborah Mallette These "journalists" are all about taking down Trump, regardless of who they take down along the way. Unprofessional, uncaring, no integrity.
Kevin Cimino Sessions, in testimony, was asked about Rosenstein. Sessions said he is a man of integrity and will be allowed to decide if he should recuse himself on the basis of his history in the uranium one deal. Basically, nothing will be investigated properly because Democrats never recuse themselves. Sessions gave him an official pass by saying he has integrity in an official setting. The Democrats are untouchable and Sessions is complicit either out of fear or Swamp disease....
David Poske The press secretary has the patience of Job and the demeanor to deal with a room full of people everyday that are more interested in being divisive and standing in the way of progress and the cleaning up of the swamp than they are objectively and factually reporting the news. God has obviously blessed her with the personality to do what she does. Thank you Sarah..
Barbara Higdon That reporter should be banned fro the briefings along with anyone who acts disrespectful. Seems to me he was grandstanding.

Bonnie Lou Prunty Cline Sean, your honesty, and hard work is so greatly appreciated, in everything you do!!!! America is blessed to have you...Thank You!!!!
Lynne McKernan Sean and the Country Music Community, THANK YOU. From Americans who love their Country, it is great to give back. At a Time of Need and Agony from a Massacre, there is a Bright Light shinning on the Families and the Victims.
Bob Merten I live 3 long blocks from the site of this tragedy...Sean and the folks at Fox keep the info flow honest and to the point...thank you all
Jennifer Howk Hendrex Thank you so much for your support last night Sean!!!!! As the wife of a police officer who literally was one of the first officers up in the Mandalay Bay that night I want to thank you for all that you have done for our community!! I wish we could’ve gotten to meet you last night but it was just such an honor to be there!! Thank you again!
Lin Thompson Thank you Sean, They have been pushed aside by all the media hype and almost forgotten already.... with all the BS about who, what, why, no one is respecting these victims. And the discusting Ellen D. show topped it off. What have we become ?.
John Underwood Great show tonight Sean. So awesome to watch people pull together, smile and have a good time and celebrate our freedom. Thanks for your part and hard work Sean. It matters. VegasStrong. 🙏
Shelley Maxwell To all the families of the fallen Patriots in Vegas, my Prayers for you that you find peace and healing from this event! And know that All Across America we pray for you! #VEGAS STRONG, AND GOD BLESS US ALL, AND THIS GREAT NATION! Keep Rocking It Sean Hannity!

Luis Montilla Thanks for repping for New Yawk in Vegas! You did a great job as an mc lol you def "rocked the crowd!" Bro 😀
Damian Schloming You know something? I have to say I find this a little bit crass. You have a high profile mass killing, reminds me of how we little kids we would enjoy Christmas. Celebrate Christmas. Oh that's a lot of fun now we get to have a big party afterwards. I'll leave out my suspicions regarding how, for some people, the big party is before the killing too.
CW Miller Well, watching Vegas Strong and my parrot Charlie like Rascal Flatts..snapping her beak and bopping to the music
Neus Pittmon I had the incredible honor to be there last night! It was amazing!
Norma Leardi Wonderful show tonight, Sean!!! Vegas Strong!!!! Love and prayers to all the victims and their families. God bless all of you!!! Love from Florida!
Jillian Flesher You are doing a spectacular job Sean. Without you I have no idea what we would do for truth!
Ron Martin You're a good man, Sean Hannity! Thanks for giving back.
Pete Kruml Good job Sean. Can't wait to watch this tonight on your show.
Linda Sturdivant Sean is the best keep up the good work . There nothing like the Hannity an the judges show
Steve Conreaux Putin's got about a dozen U.S. traitors in this Uranium 1 conspiracy!
Daniel Hashemi A scent of impeachment is in the air&No light at the end of tunnel can be seen.#Impeach the Russian puppet&extradite him to where he belongs to.
Susan Ferron Watson I love watching the left completely melt down over every little thing. Even over a charity event.
Sandy Voss Thank you Sean Hannity can you tell us how Eric Bolling is doing
Sher Pettit Why aren't the victims speaking? Why isn't anyone speaking?
Lois Henley Sean you are the greatest honest man and God bless you for all you do ! Thank you

Charlene Klepic Patton One big reason, Michelle had 6 people just to take care of makeup and haiir!!! Melania, needs one. The Good Lord gave Melania natural beauty. Big saving for us.
Chris Weaver Dismantle ALL the Obama's legacy. ALL of it.
Chloe Robinson Michelle acted like she was Queen instead of First Lady. She spent our money but then insults the people of this country.
Roger Coffman Jr The Left just doesn't like Melania because she is married to Trump. They hate Trump only because he beat Crooked Hillary.
Rick Bishop It takes a lot of people to make a dump truck look presentable every morning. Michelle had to have at least two staffers specifically assigned to tucking and taping.
Trish Smink Michelle Obama drained taxpayers as much as she could..even her mother now has a pension for life, courtesy of taxpayers. The extravagant vacations Michelle Obama took drained us of millions. Glad to hear Melania is getting expenses under control.
Joy Rogers Can't make some people happy. Whine about how much our first lady spends on secret service really. Our President works for free donates his check to charity. Thank you Melanie.
Teresa Hummel Dear Melania. I am so proud of you. Cost down from1 million plus to less than 500,000 is absolutely amazing. Just 4 aides instead of 16. You go Girl! My First Lady is Smart, Beautiful, and got a great business head too
Edmundo Mendoza Salero Does not surpise me based on their different beginnings. Of course, Michelle always speaks as if she experienced slavery like her ancestors. She just likes to carry the torch of self-victimhood and continued self-oppression for many Afro-Americans.
Carol A Farrell The difference between a scammer and an intelligent woman !
Claire Hausman Not only intelligent & attractive, but compliments her husband. She's a good Wife, Mother & wonderful First Lady. Saving money for us the taxpayers & not as extravagant as her predecessors. She is super rich in her own right. If she chooses expensive Designer clothes, she's paying for it, not us. Since they must entertain & travel extensively, there is a budget for sure. Proud of our President & our First Lady!
Cathleen Allen Barnett Michelle Obama had to be the worst dressed first lady ever. Melania is the best first lady that ever hit the White House.
Larry McCloud Rachels Democrats don't care how much of the tax payer's money they spend.
Kelly Freeman Drain the swamp and the Obama leftovers...
Carol Clee I'll bet Mooch had to haul most of her private staff around with her when she took her many lavish vacations too....I thank God for Melania every single day.
Margaret Sorano The Trumps are so opposite of the Obama’s. Trump is a billionaire but he’s frugal and smart with money as well. He doesn’t waste his money or ours. Melania follows suit.
Bill Heckathorn I heard CNN and MSNBC reporting on this too!! Just kidding lol! Not a word they are throwing General Kelley under the bus now. I swear they have absolutely no morals attacking a gold star dad and a man who served his country with honor a d dignity just goes to show they will attack anybody who serves and supports the president. Look at McCain during what's his name's presidency the msm made him out to be the biggest POS in history and now that he is a turn coat and he criticizes President Trump they are treating him like he found the cure for cancer and aids and found the fountain of youth!!
Brenda Metzler Actually Michele had more like 26 staff members. Not to mention the dog trainer that went everywhere with them.
Lili Alameda Obama’s are very greedy. They never make them own money. Always they get paid by the Government. Don’t forget Governments money are tax payers money.
Kelly Plass Rollins That was her way of making up for not getting a paycheck...because All the Perks weren't enough for her...she even said in an interview that First Ladies should get paid greedy😒
Lois Stawitcke It looks more like 75% Sean. MIchelle needed so many because she was too dumb to think for herself. Melania has brains and common sense.
Greg Friesen The Obamas grossly abused the system. They should be embarrassed and ashamed of the taxpayers money spent outside the realm of what would be considered normal white house expenditures. Seriously? We paid for her mother to have assistants? Barry should have had to foot the bill on that and MANY others
Donna Worsham Flowers Michelle's motto was, 'do this for me, do that for me. I need this, I want that'. Melania's motto is 'How can I help, what can I do for you?'.
Kristina E Hile Lonon Well, when the former first lady was not bright enough to tie her shoe, much less run an office, you need more people to keep you going. Thankfully, Mrs. Trump seems highly adept at keeping herself together and needs little assistance in that arena.
Carolyn Fenderson-Libby We are proud to have Melania as our nation’s First Lady. She is doing an extremely good job under the terrible hatred thrown at her and our beloved President. Thank-you, Melania!

Jesse Gomes They lost control of this story. Hence why they threw Weinstein under the bus. They had to divert attention away from LV at all costs since the public wasn't buying the story they were selling.
Andre Bourbeau The facts are ... A liberal shot up a crowd of mostly conservatives and now other liberals are calling for gun control on conservatives ...Liberals also blame the NRA despite no mass shooters being a member. Liberals have a disease !
Lynne McKernan Seems like MGM is running the show. Which means they are concerned about Law Suits and not the murder of 58 people. I watched the interview on Ellen and it was nothing but a show, a total farce. I don't believe the FBI, as we have learned from James Comey and the CIA Lies and spying on Americans, then denying it.
Alex Cuevas That's rich.. "investigation at a standstill".. so in other words, they're coming up with a BS story that'll be more believable. We all know he wasn't alone. And you don't have to be a conspiracy nut to see it with the info already there..
Maria Santos Lies don’t always connect and people stumble with their web of lies. Las Vegas Sheriff looked like in distress each press conference he gave spewing out vague accounts and answers, especially with FBI guy in black standing at the side just staring at him. Who do you guys think you’re fooling???😡😡😡😡.
Amy Helmle I can't believe it's been 3 weeks already. :'( America deserves to know the TRUTH about what really went down there.
Suzanne Durden What I don't understand is where are the families of the victims. Why aren't they demanding answers and to see the hotel videos. If my child was killed in the massacre, I would be on every tv show demanding answers. Why did Ellen call the security guard a hero? John Podesta's, hillary's campaign, daughter is married to FBI lead investigator in Vegas. Why haven't any of the witnesses to the massacre come forward with their stories? Think the DOJ needs to be involved. If the guy fired 200 rounds in hallway and only shot guy in leg, wht wasn't guy killed? No bullet holes in walls of hallway. Room service cart not damaged by 200 rounds. We the People need answers
LeighAnn Cariker This "investigation" is wrought with inconsistencies...starting with the timeline...I fear the American public may never know the truth.
Chris W. Landry This is even worse than the JFK assassination. At least they were smart enough to have their lies in order ! No wonder " we the people " don't trust the government !
Kahana San POTUS Trump needs to release the JFK findings. It has been over 25 yrs. They'll know who did it. Same tactics. One on top around 450-475', the other inside 250-275'. Just sayin.
Sue Napier With all the cameras they have in the hotels you are saying they don't know if this was a one man job or more? Bull.
Taleca Hall Guarantee you, the MGM knows. To much coverup on this. Paddock was the fall guy to cover what really happened. Who do you trust anymore? The FBI and CIA needs revamped with new people.
Dan Rector Yep something extremely bad and you got the security guard and he goes on the Ellen DeGeneres show you have got to be kidding me definitely something being covered up.
Gary Lahti WHAT HAPPENED? Where are the videos of Paddock carrying the weapons up to his room? Did he have gun shot residue on his hands? Did the security guard have gun shot residue on his hands? Show us the videos. If you don't want weird theories floating around, then give us some facts.
Olyvia Way I feel sorry for the victims. But I have to say this entire thing is off the charts. Trump needs to step in and get the truth. I am willing to bet someone we all have heard of is responsible. I have noticed a lot of Hillary on TV talking like she's important. There is a connection to be made.
Carole Robbins Louviere So they just stop talking about it period? Like it never happened? Kind of like the Russia thing? Lucky they had Weinstein to fall back on for news.
Brian Hooten Because its so hard to rewind the video tapes from every square inch of a Vegas casino/hotel. This display of incompetency insults my intelligence.
Beatrice Garza If DC crooks politicians been spying on American, with LV having cameras all over, why the heck doesn't anyone know anything. American were set-up & Murdered. Answers must be found, common sense tell all that this is a so call OUR previous Gov Cover-up. To be clear a previous so call admin full of big Lie criminal, lots of holdover like Mueller, McCabe, comey etc. USA waiting for justice/Justice for all!!!
Sean Crawford I smell a rat.. And I believe the rat in question, had a junior rat come out this week and spout off about globalism is the answer and how Trump is ruining America, or some balogna.
Keith Wood Questions surrounding the injured MGM security guard remain unanswered. What is his nationality and legal status? Are the answers being purposefully kept off the air because they're considered offensive to some?
Theresa Clark Spencer Well, their 'staged senario' went haywire, you really knew it when Campos blew off his Hannity interview, and showed up in a fake appearence on the Ellen show, a useless piece of air time. Even the globalist know they've pulled off one too many 'mass shootings', this one went down the drain right from the get-go !!
Brian Miserez Why don't they just ask the guy who had it done .... Soros will maybe laugh about it like he did in his interview in the 90's when asked if he helped kill his own people in WW2. It's just that easy!
Johnny Rowe MGM is to concerned about law suits, Plus i think there is a cover up here. I'm a gun owner and there is not way this guy needed to haul all these guns up there to carry this out. He only needed 3 tops, 2 to 3 AR 15s .No there is something smelly about this whole story, do the words, "IM JUST A PATSY " MEAN ANYTHING?
Michelle Mccullough What is the probability that the FBI is involved? Was Paddock actually working for the FBI ? infiltrated into Isis and the whole thing went wrong. Why were the cameras there? What do they show?
Kim Brouhard It seems it would be very easy to get the timeline correct 1st time around of the guard, as you know there are cameras in the hotel halls!!

Glenda Hammaker Fold the league, Free the slaves. I don't want to see these poor souls being kept in million+ dollar bondage.
Joyce Day The NFL refuses to make them stand and we refuse to watch. Over and out!
Julia Barron ​​ There's a bigger picture most people aren't understanding about this whole kneeling thing. The goal of the globalists is the dismantling of our American heritage, and thereby the destruction of our identity as a nation. Removing historical statues is the beginning. Removing the flag and the anthem is next. Ultimately the goal is to remove the constitution. If we keep giving in and continue to accept the dismantling of our culture and the removal of our heritage, then we become what the globalists want... A 3rd world country prime for socialist/communist control. This tactic isn't new. It has been their game plan for a long time. There are many writings explaining this movement. We are seeing it unfold before our eyes. It's deeper than what you see on the surface. No matter how tired you are of listening to the back and forth about the flag and our anthem, you mustn't grow weary. Don't allow yourself to get to the point where you say 'Just stop playing the anthem at sporting events' so we can get back to football. NOT FIGHTING THEM UPFRONT is why we're here in the first place.
Julie Keller The BIG test is coming up...the Super Bowl. If the boycott hits that it will be over for the NFL....the sponsors who pay MILLIONS for commercials will NOT lose money on a lost cause! Keep it up people, keep it up!
Billie Whitaker Klein Someone's thoughtful letter on NFL controversy: "You graduated high school in 2011. Your teenage years were a struggle. You grew up on the wrong side of the tracks. Your mother was the leader of the family and worked tirelessly to keep a roof over your head and food on your plate. Academics were a struggle for you and your grades were mediocre at best. The only thing that made you stand out is you weighed 225 lbs and could run 40 yards in 4.2 seconds while carrying a football. Your best friend was just like you, except he didn’t have the talent for football. Instead of going to football practice after school, he went to work at McDonalds for minimum wage. You were recruited by all the big colleges and spent every weekend of your senior year making visits to universities where coaches and boosters tried to convince you their school was best. They laid out the red carpet for you. Your best friend worked double shifts at Mickey D’s. College was not an option for him. On the day you signed with Big State University, your best friend signed paperwork with his Army recruiter. You went to summer workouts. He went to basic training. You spent the next four years living in the athletic dorm, eating at the training table. You spent your Saturdays on the football field, cheered on by adoring fans. Tutors attended to your every academic need. You attended class when you felt like it. Sure, you worked hard. You lifted weights, ran sprints, studied plays, and soon became one of the top football players in the country. Your best friend was assigned to the 101st Airborne Division. While you were in college, he deployed to Iraq once and Afghanistan twice. He became a Sergeant and led a squad of 19 year old soldiers who grew up just like he did. He shed his blood in Afghanistan and watched young American's give their lives, limbs, and innocence for the USA. You went to the NFL combine and scored off the charts. You hired an agent and waited for draft day. You were drafted in the first round and your agent immediately went to work, ensuring that you received the most money possible. You signed for $16 million although you had never played a single down of professional football. Your best friend re-enlisted in the Army for four more years. As a combat tested sergeant, he will be paid $32,000 per year. You will drive a Ferrari on the streets of South Beach. He will ride in the back of a Blackhawk helicopter with 10 other combat loaded soldiers. You will sleep at the Ritz. He will dig a hole in the ground and try to sleep. You will “make it rain” in the club. He will pray for rain as the temperature reaches 120 degrees. On Sunday, you will run into a stadium as tens of thousands of fans cheer and yell your name. For your best friend, there is little difference between Sunday and any other day of the week. There are no adoring fans. There are only people trying to kill him and his soldiers. Every now and then, he and his soldiers leave the front lines and “go to the rear” to rest. He might be lucky enough to catch an NFL game on TV. When the National Anthem plays and you take a knee, he will jump to his feet and salute the television. While you protest the unfairness of life in the United States, he will give thanks to God that he has the honor of defending his great country. To the players of the NFL: We are the people who buy your tickets, watch you on TV, and wear your jerseys. We anxiously wait for Sundays so we can cheer for you and marvel at your athleticism. Although we love to watch you play, we care little about your opinions until you offend us. You have the absolute right to express yourselves, but we have the absolute right to boycott you. We have tolerated your drug use and DUIs, your domestic violence, and your vulgar displays of wealth. We should be ashamed for putting our admiration of your physical skills before what is morally right. But now you have gone too far. You have insulted our flag, our country, our soldiers, our police officers, and our veterans. You are living the American dream, yet you disparage our great country. I am done with NFL football and encourage all like minded Americans to boycott the NFL as well."
Karen Church The assh*les running the NFL, Fox and ESPN decided not to televise the National Anthen so that a bunch of anti- American hood rats can insult our flag and country. Americans are insulted. Every week they give us reason to hate them even more. Standing with interlocking arms is still an insult. If you can't put your hand over your heart, get out of the stadium, and don't come back.
Michael Leonhardt The NFL football ratings sinking faster than the Democratic Party
Dave Witkus At this point it doesn't matter if they stand or not. If and when they do, it won't be sincere. It will be for the money. I will never support the NFL again.
Christina Carroll Graves Dummies.. ALL of them! They just dont get it and wont get it until it hurts them financially! I hope TRUMP takes away the TAX SUBSIDIES!!!!!
Billie Whitaker Klein I see you… I see you, professional football player, as you kneel down during the playing of the National Anthem… I see you, with your arm raised in protest… I see you thinking you are doing something to unite people over social and racial injustice. I see you… But, more than that here is what I really see… I see a man pushing the wheels of his wheelchair as he returns home from a foreign land unable to function as he once did, due to fighting to protect you as you kneel on the ground. I see a young widow, dressed carefully in black, mourning the remains of her husband, hugging a coffin on the tarmac of an airport. I see that same woman clutching a perfectly folded flag to her bosom as taps is played at his graveside. I see her young son, tears streaming down his face knowing his father would never come home again. I see graveyards full of tombstones, here and overseas, with names of those fallen, with dates showing a much too early death. I see so many, from so many different wars and conflicts, crosses and stones. They are too numerous to count. I see the sacrifices made, the hearts broken, the tears shed, the shattered lives all in the name of freedom… all in the name of that red, white and blue piece of cloth that you choose to protest. Social and racial injustice? You who make millions of American dollars for playing a game in a country where you have more opportunity to make a better life for you and your family than anywhere in the world? Really? The hypocrisy of it astounds me. First of all, if you really want to protest, give your money and time to make changes. Give to those less fortunate than you. Help those people get an education, buy them food and shelter. Show them opportunities to make better decisions. Teach them that they have a purpose in life. If you really want to protest injustices… Protest the treatment of veterans, who have to wait extremely long periods of time for healthcare, who are living under interstate bridges, in boxes, who are committing suicide. Today over twenty of them will take their lives out of hopelessness and despair. There is no greater injustice than that. Protest the loss of religious rights as some atheist complained so much that public prayer by a group of young players on an athletic field is not allowed. When I see that flag, when I hear that song, when I sing those words, I give homage to those who died for this land, who continue to protect this land, who don’t know if and when they will ever see their loved ones again. Some say that they died for your freedom so that you can take a knee. I say they died for your freedom so you can stand proudly and be thankful that God has blessed you enough that you can live in a country of so much opportunity. Go ahead… Go ahead and kneel… Go ahead and be ungrateful. I am watching… As are millions and millions of others. We don’t see a protest of unity… we see a protest of disgraceful ignorance. Copied and pasted...I'm not sure who the original author is but thank
John Macke Nobody in my entire family has watched a single game this season, and we won't until these millionaire hypocrites start respecting the flag of this country and her protectors.
Mal Leo I don’t think I can ever go back, my grandfather served and if he were here, he would be ashamed of our nation. Thank you Mr. President, I’m sure pop-pop is saluting you!
Miller Laura I hope their ratings continue to decline until there isn't enough money to pay these spoiled millionaires there big salaries. They are just protesting now to be defiant; not for any real cause. Besides, they are on a job ... not on their own time .... the 1st amendment right is for their own time.
Mark Linda Crandall Goodell and his fence riding is bringing about the destruction of the NFL. Trump was correct when he said that C. Kap. should have been suspended if he didn't stop kneeling for the anthem. I don't care who you are, politics do not belong in the work place if it offends the customers!! What is so hard to understand about that, Goodell??
Don Anderson i don't care if they all stand from now on , the owners and players have shown who and what they really are. I'm done with the spineless billionaire owners and the self centered idiot players. never again will i watch
Steve Wams Haven’t seen a game since. There is a revolution going on in this nation. Good vs evil. Half of the nfl are convicted felons. They want I get a pass on their behavior. America wants to hold them accountable... Americans will win this battle
Larry Babcock After the “kneeling” at the beginning of this season, I pledged Not to watch. Don’t care about the Overpaid spoiled brats - it’s great to have more time (and money) for other things.
Wil Meadows Continued evidence that the silent majority is alive and well. Just b/c we're not out in the streets acting like a bunch of babies doesn't mean we aren't here or won't rise when necessary. Libtards, you'll never learn.
Ruth Mulvany Lund Not watching anymore no matter who plays. It makes me mad since I loved football but now I have lost all interest in professional will just watch college ball.
Robert Young Stadiums are starting to look like the old USFL. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
Ray Sutherland Just think .... those that hold Patriots in contempt are witnessing the strength of our convictions and determination all conducted with maturity responsibility and discipline yet determined good work America
JD Petree I don't support the NFl any more.
Paul A. Smith you know...its actually very sad..why the hell these overpaid,under educated,narrow minded,self centered,egotisical,half witted,self rightous mrons are still on these teams is beyond me.....bench em once. second tiome bench again..3rd...gone..simple.
Michael Pollard No mercy until all teams reinstitute respect for our flag and the national anthem ❤️ 🇺🇸. Don't stop! Keep it going till after Christmas! I do not believe they have felt the full brunt of the fans wrath yet. This needs to continue well past Thanksgiving and Christmas so they don't forget: we are the fans, we are the customer, we pay their salaries, we have a voice, and we have a much bigger platform than the NFL. No viewership, tickets, or merchandise, and this includes their SPONSORS. Never let them forget!
Heidi Holmes We were at a restaurant, (not a sports bar) but they had Football on their T.V.s. I ask for the manager so we could have the channel changed to something different. He was very happy to oblige. He too doesn't understand why they disrespect OUR flag. He is Hispanic, and loves the USA!
