RICK MANNING: VP Pence right to leave Colts-49ers game


Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning issued the following statement praising Vice President Mike Pence’s decision to leave yesterday’s Colts-49ers game:

“Entertainers performing for the National Football League are no different than stage performers for the play Hamilton. If they choose to make their performances exclusionary and their producers and owners allow it, then the rest of us who love America have every right to no longer pay their salaries through attendance, listening to or viewing broadcasts of their product.

“Vice President Pence’s choice to leave the Colts-49ers game on Sunday is to be commended and the fact the NFL nonsense protests continue in spite of overwhelming opposition, signals to the rest of us that we are not welcome at NFL games.

“The truth is that with Sundays back, more will go to church, mow their lawns and play with their kids rather than wasting time watching overgrown, roid-raging millionaires bash into each other.

“I stand with the President and Vice President for the national anthem and flag, and I will not stand for those who refuse to do the same.”
