Meghan McCain Defends Standing For “Old Glory” Despite Backlash

Meghan McCain, the daughter of gravely ill war hero John McCain, demonstrated her father’s patriotic grit on Friday. She did so by standing up to her co-hosts on the “View” along with their Kool-Aid drinking audience, tweeting out; “I never go on TV and do or say anything because it’s easy – I say it because it’s what I believe in.”

McCain continued; “I ardently believe in standing for our flag, and I am not scared of an audience in front of me or behind the camera. I would be scared if I were a phony, betraying my values.”

The outspoken conservative co-host although outnumbered by the progressive jackals on the show, is no wallflower when it comes to defending traditional American values.

The dust-up occurred in response to the announcement that the NFL had instituted a new league policy regarding our National Anthem and players taking a knee. The new league rules mandates players on the field must stand for the National Anthem, and those who will not must stay in the locker-room until the salute to “Old Glory” is over.

The discussion between the co-hosts began cordial enough until the mention of President Trump supporting the new league rule and McCain chiming in saying she would “never be OK” with someone disrespecting the American flag.

McCain continued, “I disagree with everyone on this table, I would never be okay with somebody not saluting the flag. By the way, 72% of Americans, according to Reuters, said that they thought [Colin] Kaepernick’s behavior was unpatriotic.”

This set off the jackals at the table that were waiting to pounce on McCain.

Co-host Sunny Hostin immediately played the race card suggesting that a majority of African-Americans called Kaepernick a patriot, which lit up the obviously programmed audience into loud applause, as McCain attempted to explain her position.

“Can I just finish what I’m saying,” McCain said. “I’m still talking!” I’m still talking, I’m still speaking.”

Hours earlier Fox News host Brian Kilmeade in an exclusive interview with President Trump discussed the breaking news regarding the new NFL policy, in which the President thought it was the right thing to do, adding that players who disrespect the National Anthem “maybe shouldn’t be in this country.”

The President continued; “I don’t think people should be staying in the locker rooms, but still I think it’s good. You have to stand proudly for the National Anthem. You shouldn’t be playing, you shouldn’t be there.”

Roger Goodell acknowledged in a statement that the policy was approved “in concert with the NFL’s ongoing commitment to local communities and our country.”

The guidelines read: “the 32 member clubs of the National Football League have reaffirmed their strong commitment to work alongside our players to strengthen our communities and advance social justice.”

McCain has been here before defending her conservative values on the “View.” The hostility is expected from her co-hosts and many within the audience.

Just recently McCain found herself once again in a heated debate defending her Second Amendment rights after the latest school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas

Misinformed Joy Behar once again used the progressive playbook attacking an inanimate object “the gun” while ignoring the underline culprit “mental illness,” and reverencing singer  Kelly Clarkson’s comment regarding gun control at the Billboard Awards show Sunday night.

“We’ve had this conversation before and we’re always talking about gun control. We said before, OK, AR-15s, all semi-assault rifles, if they are banned, this won’t happen. That’s obviously not accurate in this case,” McCain chimed in. “He had a pipe bomb, a molotov cocktail and a carbon dioxide device, which, by the way, are things you can make in your house.”

He is also underage, used a shotgun and a .38 revolver, which he stole, all of which is already illegal.

  1. What a garbage can show. NO ONE (and I mean NO ONE) in their right mind watches these POS women.

  2. I like to read your articles, because I like to be exposed to a variety of views and opinions. I just have one question for you. Why do you findit necessary to call people who disagree with you names? Because I might have a different opinion or viewpoint does not make me a jackal or any of the other labels you seem intent on using. Not helpful.

  3. As a 35 year Beteran, i too standfor the flag. Hiwever, if the NFL or anyone elses chooses not to becayse they feel that it brings, much needed, attention, attention to the murder of Black men by law enforcement they have every right to do that.

    How dare anyone presume to criticise their way of sowaking out against what has become a virtual epidemic in this country.
    Are they being violent?
    Has anyone heard them using unprofessional tactics or language either on or off the field in respect to this issue?

    For goodness sake, take the rise tinted glasses from your eyes and see what is going on here.

    Furthermore, why are any of you supporting denying these men their first ammendment right to free speech.

    There’s some massive hypocrisy floating around here.

  4. Traditional American values, synonymous with LYNCHINGS, Black Men being MURDERED BY RACIST COPS, Blacks being called N****,being taught to hate their dark skin and hair, high rate of incarceration, joblessness, etc.
    Yep That filthy white bitch has American value down to a Tee.

  5. I always stand remove my hat and cover my heart. I do that because it’s my choice. Not because someone tells me I have to. Forced patriotism isn’t what this country is about. Also the protest isn’t about disrespecting anything. Ir’s about racial divide.

  6. I am so sorry Meghan McCain left Fox. She always had intelligent insights into all the topics. I have not been able o watch the View for several years because of Joy Behar. Meghan has such class and does not deserve the rude comments because she is conservative. Many of us are in this country just not acknowledged. Good Luck Meghan.

  7. All you have to do to judge how serious the NFL anthem protesters are about their cause is take a look at what they’ve been doing in the off-season, when they’re not on company time but on their own time.
    So, where are their protests?
    Nowhere, that’s where!
    Nothing but hypocrites.

  8. First of all you started out by calling John McCain a war hero which he was from from being. When the enemy called him Songbird and what he did to his fellow POW’s was not heroic but saving himself as he got preferential treatment for selling out the military.
    He’s been a RINO and Republicans in Arizona didn’t know the real truth about him.

  9. Have to agree with Olson! McCain was a traitor! They have a book out about him. He is no hero!!!!

  10. I had to….I don’t know….laugh, smile or roll my eyes at the pure disingenuous, hypocrisy? as I read your piece. I laughed at your liberal (sorry) use of smear words (Kool-aid drinking, jackals) and buzz terms.
    I smiled as I noted how you endorsed Mr. Trump’s suggestion that the players(or anyone else, I assume) who “disrespect the Anthem” should be deported. Do you think that deportation should include the fans in the stadium who continue to buy a hot dog and beer at the concession stands while the song plays?
    How about those in the bathroom standing at a urinal? Should they “zip” up and salute? How about those sitting on the toilet? So, squatting is OK, but taking a knee is not? How about those people running around in shorts or sweatpants adorned with the flag? or hats? So it is not OK to burn the flag, but it is OK to sit on it?
    Perhaps you should read about flag etiquette. It is not allowed to use flags for purpose of advertising and product promotion. See what happens on TV and in print around Independence Day.

    Perhaps you should poll both active and retired military and first responders and ask them whether they think that Kaepernick should have the right to non-violent protest by taking a knee.

    You wrote of “hostility from her co-hosts”. Perhaps you should read your own words and note your own hostility.

    You segued into gun control and blamed “mental illness” as the underlying cause of gun deaths in this country. Do you have the guts to say that, combining mental illness with “easy access to guns” might be a mitigating factor? I doubt it.

    What was omitted was the fact that the Sante Fe shooter stole the guns from his father. Here is a thought—-how about enacting laws which would hold the adult/guardian equally responsible for the crime committed by the minor if he/she knowingly or unknowingly provided access to the firearms? I bet the adults would make damn sure that those guns are safely secured.

    FINALLY, what made me roll my eyes and shake my head was your VERY FIRST SENTENCE. You referred to John McCain as a “gravely ill war hero”. Trump said he was not a hero because he got caught. Mr. Trump has spent his time, from the presidential race to the present deriding/trashing/denouncing that war hero. This entire piece was created to promote your conservative agenda. You used John McCain and his illness. HOW ARE YOU ANY DIFFERENT/BETTER THAN THOSE YOU CRITICIZE?

    I am puzzled by this issue. I am usually a proud “libtard,” so I was greatly surprised when I got an email from a group I usually agree with, asking me to sign a petition to show moral support for Colin Kaepernick. I had never heard of him before that. I didn’t think he needed moral support. I think he is a troublemaker. I am also surprised that every day I read of at least one veteran who has said NFL players are just exercising their first amendment right to free speech. But I think the athletes should be reminded of the concept of “employment.” They get paid a lot of money to play a game. I have worked in a couple of places where the employee handbook says specifically that the employee understands that he or she can be fired at any time, for any reason or for no reason. I don’t know if I would go that far, but I think the NFL’s compromise is reasonable. If the players don’t want to stand for the national anthem or the flag, they can stay in the locker room.

    I do think if the NFL wanted to tell the players that they couldn’t protest when they are not at work, that would be a different situation. To me, that is like some employer I read about years ago who refused to hire anyone who smoked, even if they only intended to smoke while they were not at work. I don’t remember what happened in that case, but I do think that that employer was overstepping his bounds.
