LANSING, MI - Michigan State Police Col. Kriste Kibbey Etue shared a message on social media criticizing the NFL players' protests, calling them "degenerates" and "millionaire ingrates who hate America and disrespect our armed forces and veterans," according to The Associated Press.
Etue, who heads the statewide police department, shared the meme entitled "Dear NFL" on her Facebook page Sunday. It was a post widely shared on social media by those critical of hundreds of NFL players this past weekend who locked arms and/or kneeled during the pre-game playing of the national anthem. Some forms of the meme are calling for a boycott of the NFL until these silent gridiron protests end.
President Donald Trump slammed the take-a-knee protest last week in a speech, equating the protest with disrespect for the military and dishing out profanity at the players who practiced it. His remarks seemed to reveal a clear divide in the country over First Amendment rights.
An MSP spokesperson said Etue's Facebook post was not about race, the AP said.
Here is the text of the meme:
"Dear NFL: We will not support millionaire ingrates who hate America and disrespect our Armed Forces and Veterans. Who wins a football game has ZERO impact on our lives. Who fights for and defends our nation has every impact on our lives. We stand with the Heroes, not a bunch of rich, entitled, arrogant, ungrateful, anti-American, degenerates. Signed, We the people."

Sometimes the truth hurts and is necessary.
She should not have backed down, though.
Pretty good statement. This lady gets it — and I figure there’ll be hell to pay for her from her superiors who must toe the PC line.
I don’t see anything about race.
She has a right to her opinion on her personal time, yes?
Why do blacks see racism everywhere?
Is there anything they will admit is ‘not racist’?
I not longer care about ANY of their grievances, Obama wore that race card out.
Well I say, If they take a knee, just giveem the FINGER!!”
And, bravo NRA, herein: https://youtu.be/z3j1ZKz7PWQ
The point here is that the NFL players are wrong to diss the national anthem because cops may be shooting people they shouldn’t be shooting.
Justine Damond’s’ shooting in Minneapolis where the cop reached all the way across the car past his partner to open fire on her. The cops searching her home trying to find something wrong about her.
They still haven’t after months decided on criminal charges against the cop.
Plenty of politics in that since he’s the “first Muslim cop” in the city.
Then there’s Lavoy Finicum’s killing in Oregon by law enforcement indoctrinated to see American citizens as “extremists” when they were protesting non-violently.
The only thing they seem to care about is the lying of the FBI agent who lied about the critical first shots he fired ahead of the fatal one from an Oregon cop that took LaVoy down.
When Laquan McDonald was gunned down in Chicago, a coverup is alleged by a “special prosecutor” but one thing is sure.
The video of his killing was kept under wraps and not released to the public until the 2015 Democrat primary for mayor was concluded.
That video was kept out of the public eye so Rahm Emmanuel could be re-elected as Mayor of Chicago.
FACTS are extremely inconvenient to the leftists, the protesting NFL players and Black Lives Matter....
“In 2016, the police fatally shot 233 blacks, the vast majority armed and dangerous, according to the Washington Post. The paper categorized only 16 black male victims of police shootings as unarmed. That classification masks assaults against officers and violent resistance to arrest.
Contrary to the Black Lives Matter narrative, the police have much more to fear from black males than black males have to fear from the police. In 2015, a police officer was 18.5 times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male was to be killed by a police officer.
Black males have made up 42 percent of all cop-killers over the last decade, though they are only 6 percent of the population. That 18.5 ratio undoubtedly worsened in 2016, in light of the 53 percent increase in gun murders of officers committed vastly and disproportionately by black males.”
1,000 more like her and Kid Rock, and maybe there’s hope for the state of Michigan.
