Joey Jones speaks out against fencer kneeling at podium


ROB: MAJOR AIRPORT. WE WILL KEEP YOU POSTED. AFTER KNEELING FOR THE NATIONAL ANTHEM AT THE PAN AM GAMES. JILLIAN: ONE VETERAN HAS A MESSAGE FOR ANY ATHLETE WHO DISRESPECTS THE FLAG. ROB: JOY JONES JOINS US TO TALK ABOUT THIS. THANKS FOR COMING BACK TO THE SHOW. A COUPLE GUYS PROTESTS, WHAT WAS YOUR INITIAL RESPONSE?>>WE LIVE IN A COUNTRY SO BLESSED AND PROSPEROUS AND SO FREE, TO THOSE THINGS THAT MAKE IT THAT WAY, THIS IS THE IRONY OF THE SITUATION WHERE GENERATIONS OF AMERICANS HAVE DIED FROM THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR AND WASHINGTON, ATHLETES GROWING UP IN A WORLD WHERE IT IS NOT THEIR BLOOD AND SACRIFICE THE ENSURES FREEDOM SO IT IS NOT QUITE PERFECT. AND IT IS DISHEARTENING IT IS SOMETHING THAT IS PREDICTABLE. WHEN YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT THINGS COST IT IS EASY NOT TO BE HAPPENING WITH THEM.>>YOU UNDERSTAND THE COST OF WAR AND SPEND YOUR LIFE FIGHTING FOR YOUR COUNTRY.>>ONE BAD DAY IN AFGHANISTAN WAS THE DAY I WAS INJURED AND ANOTHER MARINE GOT KILLED. I WISH I COULD GO BACK AND SAVE THEM. OUTSIDE OF THAT I WAS IN THE MARINE CORPS WITH A BLESSING IN MY LIFE THAT MADE ME A STRONGER PERSON AND HOPEFULLY MADE THE COUNTRY SAFER. ONE OF THE PROTESTERS FROM THE MOST RECENT EVENT TWEETED HE SACRIFICED A MOMENT OF GLORY TO MAKE THE COUNTRY A BETTER PLACE BECAUSE EVERYONE WAS TUNING IN TO SEE THE GOLD MEDALIST THIS YEAR. MAYBE YOU TRY TO GO VIRAL AND GET SOME ATTENTION. I HAVE A FRIEND ON THE USA SOCCER TEAM WHO POSTED, HIS NAME ASSESSED JOHN, A GREEN BERET INJURED MULTIPLE TIMES, INJURED, WENT TO AFRICA, HE DEDICATED HIS LIFE TO SERVING THE GREATER CAUSE, NOW HE’S PLAYING SOCCER FOR THE US SOCCER TEAM AND HE POSTED THIS, BECAUSE WHAT THESE GUYS ARE DOING HE WILL MAKE SURE THEY ARE RUNNING THIS COUNTRY EVEN MORE THAN STANDING ON THE PODIUM AND HE WAS EMBARRASSED BY THEIR ACTIONS AND HAVE TO BELIEVE SUCCESS COULD BE AN EXPERT ON THIS ISSUE.>>INTERESTING PERSPECTIVE, LET’S GET YOUR REACTION TO HIM EXPLAINING HIS FEELINGS ON THIS. WE MUST CALL FOR CHANGE, MY PRIDE HAS BEEN CUT SHORT BY THE MULTIPLE SHORTCOMINGS OF THE COUNTRY AND A PRESIDENT WHO SPREAD HATE. I CHOSE TO SACRIFICE MY MOMENT TODAY AT THE TOP OF THE PODIUM TO CALL ATTENTION TO ISSUES I BELIEVE NEED TO BE ADDRESSED. WHAT DO YOU SAY TO THAT?>>SACRIFICE MUST BE A MALLEABLE WORD THESE DAYS. THAT’S WHAT I TWEETED TO HIM BECAUSE SACRIFICE MEANS GIVING SOMETHING UP AND ALL HE GOT WAS MORE FOLLOWS AND RETWEETS AND TALKING ABOUT HIM ON THE NEWS. A LOT OF PEOPLE DON’T LIKE HIM BECAUSE OF THIS AND I’M SURE HE REGAINED A LOT OF FANS, PLENTY OF PEOPLE SUPPORTING THE COLIN KAEPERNICK PROTEST WITHOUT UNDERSTANDING WHY, JUST TRENDING TO DO SO HE DOESN’T GET TO USE THE WORD SACRIFICE IN THIS SITUATION. I DON’T HAVE A MONOPOLY ON SACRIFICE, NEITHER DOES OUR MILITARY BUT WE ARE CERTAINLY –>>HERE’S A QUOTE FROM THE US OLYMPIC AND PARALYMPIC COMMITTEE ON PODIUM PROTESTS, EVERY ATHLETE COMPETING COMMITS TO TERMS OF ELIGIBILITY INCLUDING TO REFRAIN FROM DEMONSTRATIONS THAT ARE POLITICAL IN NATURE, WE ARE DISAPPOINTED THEY CHOSE NOT TO HONOR THEIR COMMITMENT. OUR LEADERSHIP, REVIEWING WHAT THE CONSEQUENCES MAY — WHAT DO YOU THINK THE CONSEQUENCES SHOULD BE KICK YOU>>DON’T KNOW THIS PERSON SHOULD HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO STAND ON THE PODIUM AGAIN.

  1. How is taking a knee "disrespectful"? And how do you "disrespect" a flag?? A flag doesn't have feelings! So while everybody is saying he misused "sacrifice" so are they misusing "disrespect" and "honor"

  2. Here is how sad this picture really is…… One of our guys is kneeling and THREE of the guys from the other country are saluting our National Anthem.

  3. I’m sure Race will change his name because it’ll remind him of his white privilege and how it allowed him to get into 🤺. Now look to the 2 on the left as they salute the flag during our anthem. That right there is respect.

  4. A PRESIDENT who spreads hate? Talk about blinders, has he looked at the Left? The president doesn't even come close if you were to compare them.

  5. these people that do these things need to be put into one of these dangerous countries for the rest of their lives maybe they will appreciate what they have here or used to have here

  6. …meanwhile, he does nothing to make anything better anywhere. It's embarrassing for the rest of the world to see this. Take his medal send him home, ban him, tell him call Nike, heard they give jobs to traitors.which is basically what they are.

  7. Disgraceful should not be representing U.S. make him pay his own way if he wants to compete. America Love It Or Leave It. Sports is not the place to protest, especially in a foreign country. Shame on you

  8. The moron should be kicked of the team for life. Kneeling gets nothing accomplished. Just makes proud Americans angry. Protest in a way that helps your cause not hinder it.

  9. Who is that in the green and gold? Australia or brazil perhaps?
    They are saluting their flag and anthem, power to them I say.

  10. Singing a song to praise ones country has nothing to
    do with supporting your BS belief.
    Do you have a brain to fully understand ???

  11. When I see a white man kneeling for the flag all I can think of is he must have a black boyfriend or is hoping he impress a black man to get a boyfriend

  12. Our enemies are all watching this and laughing! The far-leftists in our country are making the United States the laughing stock of the world. Even the Chinese has a slur for white leftists in America, and the Chinese are communists.

  13. Our military fight for this country, no matter who is in the oval office. I feel this standard should extend to those who represent us in sports like these games. If I were his coach I would say well done, you openly shamed our country that gave you the right to kneel… now I Exercise my right as your coach you can go home. But hey his coach may feel the same. Well he can go home too. Just thinking out loud… I love the USA

  14. these kneelers for the national anthems need to have citizenship revoked and deported if you can't respect our country and flag we will kick your cowardly cocksucking asses out these kneelers are obviously kneeling to suck cocks lol

  15. The funny thing is the guy kneeling has no clue what that means or why he’s doing it.
    He simply saw another athlete do it and thought it was cool.
    He thinks he’s part of something he just doesn’t know what exactly that is.

  16. Say what you want about his disrespectful display. he has earned it but he has guts to stand up (in this case kneel) for what he thinks are his convictions. Too bad those guts should pretty much end his career an future lol. Also if you protest your constitutional rights then clearly you don’t want them anymore an should therefore forfeit them. God bless this land an it’s people.

  17. Shortcomings of this country? Kneeling is disrespecting our flag. If you don't like this country why don't you go live in Syria? I know how it is, I was born there. Such a shame that you were privileged being born in this great country yet you throw a tantrum by kneeling. As for me being a naturalized US citizen, I'll continue standing for the American flag and holding it with the utmost respect…

  18. I've got an idea for these "kneelers"… instead of taking a knee during the anthem when you see something wrong with this country… why don't you actually, literally & physically… DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!!!

  19. These sheltered geeks that take a knee during our national anthem should be made to go live in Venezuela 🇻🇪 for a month or two. Same applies to these pansies at google and WayFair. Reality is going to smack these folks in the face one of these days shortly. Must give props to our men and women of USA 🇺🇸 armed forces. Thank you 🙏🏻

  20. It's all for attention. These squirrels don't give a hoot about anyone but themselves. We've raised way too many spoiled entitled brats. It makes a good argument for restarting the draft – something I hated but now see it made little boys grow up fast.

  21. this idiot fencer clearly doesn't know the sacrifice made so that 'flag was still there' despite the bombardment of British artillery, so that one day he all those sacrifices would allow him to one day stand on that podium. Not to mention his 'reasons' are based on lies.

  22. HE SHOULD HAVE HIS MEDAL TAKIN FROM HIM !! THATS WHATS WRONG WITH EVERYTHING !! NO CONCIQUINCES !! THATS WHY THEY KEEP DOING THIS CRAP !!

  23. He hit it. Most of those protesters are spoiled and want attention. We never would have heard of him if he didn't do that. Spoiled brat

  24. These brats are spoiled. Fencing is for rich kids. These lefties are only stirring up the American people. The next civil war will be American patriots vs lefties and elitists.

  25. Amazing how 1 percent does this, and the media blow it up making it sound relevant. It’s all about the media’s agenda.

  26. Your only kneeling because your a nobody trying to make a name for yourself. Congrats everyone is disappointed in you and won’t support you because you won’t support the very individuals who allowed you to go to a foreign country and SAFELY COMPETE.

  27. I am sure that there are injustices in the countries of the other MEN in the competition. You are representing the United States of America and you should stand out of respect for our National Anthem. You are not a good ambassador for our country and you are an embarrassment. You have very little respect for our soldiers who fought for our freedom. There are millions of people who fought for the freedom for all Americans and millions of them are or were a lot younger than you that either came home injured or didn't come home at all. They had more patriotism in their little finger than you have in your whole body. You signed a document stating that you would not kneel and you did it anyway. Maybe you would be happier in a country where freedom isn't taken for granted.

  28. Takes for granted his spoiled life!, Go to a third world country, so you can see how good you have it here!, you little brat!

  29. Little marshmallow should play womens soccer. Assholes like him should be drafted. No one has watched fencing since Zorro won the title.

  30. Oh not this crap again. What's the matter? Needed people to see your numb skull on TV to believe you're a real athlete?

  31. Joey Jones.Thank you to you and all who defend our freedoms.What a absolute STUD! "My promise led to losing my legs..and I was proud to do it…the least he can do is use his."
    Wow!

  32. DIDN'T SACRIFICE ANYTHING! Used platform to state political opinion IS all DID! That against what he SIGNED! STUPIDA**!

  33. Athletes, you are just not that important, you get to do sports (what you love) to distract the mindless masses paying the lions share of the burden. one day they will wake up and stop watching you silly twits … fencing ? really ?? who gives a s!ht not many.
