It should be crystal clear by now to the NFL that they’re hurting themselves by not taking the right stand on… standing. Their unwillingness to take disciplinary action against the spoiled brats taking a knee during their country’s national anthem is the reason for empty stadiums around the league.

It may be a little unfair to highlight the San Francisco 49ers as an example because they’re currently winless, but since they were the first team to allow a player to kneel when Colin Kaepernick took a knee during the National Anthem last season, they should get the most attention.
Here’s the reality: We can post all the pictures of empty stadiums that we want, but the NFL either knows something we don’t know or they’re stupid. We know they’re probably not stupid (not completely, at least) so that means they can’t be too concerned about the long-term effects of their bad reputation lately. The images may be misleading. The money may be flowing despite the bad press. We don’t know for sure. All we know is they’re not really doing anything about it.
The NFL is failing to do what’s right. Those who point to the 1st Amendment don’t understand that this isn’t a question of rights. It’s a question of an employer allowing employees to damage their industry’s reputation to their customers. This is very straightforward: Some employees are doing what a majority of the business’ customers don’t like. They should be disciplined. The outcry for such discipline has been loud, but not nearly loud enough.
Until the NFL takes a stand in favor of America, we should all completely walk away from the game. Focus on college football. Pick a different sport to follow. Play with your kids. Do anything other than support this behavior on Sundays. By watching, listening to, or attending these games, we’re saying that it’s okay for someone to disrespect this nation as long as they have enough talent to make it in the NFL.
Don’t let pictures of empty stadiums make you complacent. The power of the people over politicians is with our vote, but the power of the people over businesses is are money. They need our eyeballs to sell advertising, our subscriptions to sell to television markets, and our attention to fill the seats. Don’t give it to them. We’re not winning this battle. The players are still kneeling and the NFL is doing nothing about it. They haven’t felt enough pain from their unpatriotic actions. It’s time to turn up the heat.
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
