Eric Reid calls out VP Mike Pence for protest tweets, cites expensive NFL walkout

first_img#49ers Eric Reid on VP Pence leaving after anthem protest:— Cam Inman (@CamInman) October 8, 2017Reid’s former 49ers teammate Colin Kaepernick, who began that form of protest in 2016, addressed the demonstrations taking place across the country with multiple social media posts shared Thursday.”When civility leads to death, revolting is the only logical reaction,” Kaepernick said. “The cries for peace will rain down, and when they do, they will land on deaf ears, because your violence has brought this resistance. We have the right to fight back! Rest in power George Floyd.”Former Minneapolis police offer Derek Chauvin was charged Friday with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter after video surfaced earlier in the week showing him pressing his knee into Floyd’s neck while arresting Floyd on suspicion of forgery. Floyd was pronounced dead at a local hospital after medical officials reportedly spent an hour trying to revive him. Our prayers are with the family of George Floyd and our prayers are also with the family of Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia. We have no tolerance for racism in America. We have no tolerance for violence inspired by racism. And, as President Trump said, justice will be served.— Mike Pence (@Mike_Pence) May 29, 2020We believe in law and order in this Country. We condemn violence against property or persons. We will always stand for the right of Americans to peacefully protest and let their voices be heard.— Mike Pence (@Mike_Pence) May 29, 2020MORE: Colin Kaepernick defends Minnesota protests after death of George FloydYeah, about that…Back in October 2017, Pence attended a game between the 49ers and Colts in Indianapolis. He didn’t stay long, though, as he left after seeing multiple San Francisco players kneeling during the national anthem to protest racial injustice and police brutality.”I left today’s Colts game because President Trump and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our flag, or our national anthem,” Pence said at the time.Eric Reid was one of the 49ers players regularly taking a knee prior to the start of games that season, and he pointed out how Pence’s recent comments don’t match his previous actions.You were singing a different tune when you rejected our peaceful protest at the 49’ers vs Colts game, wasting tax payers’ money to stage your publicity stunt.— Eric Reid (@E_Reid35) May 30, 2020Pence’s walkout cost at least $325,000, according to a HuffPost report. The move appeared to be preplanned because journalists were informed “there may be an early departure from the game,” and Trump said he told Pence to leave if any players chose to kneel during the national anthem.”Until he can prove that he’s been an avid Colts fan and he comes to NFL games on a regular basis, this is PR,” Reid said after the game. Vice President Mike Pence attempted to deliver a message of unity on Friday as protests continued following the death of George Floyd, but he was quickly criticized for his hypocrisy.Pence declared President Donald Trump’s administration “will always stand for the fight of Americans to peacefully protest and let their voices be heard.”last_img read more

Tougbaye, the secretary of Montserrado County electoral district #4 Representative, called on the youth to be productive, “through which they will promote peace and reconciliation.”Tougbaye reminded the youth that the country will get better if they treat each other “with tolerance and respect.”The executive director of CFP-L, B. Able Learnwillie, admonished the youth to spread whatever they acquired from the symposium to other members of their communities.He underscored the importance of reconciliation to the growth and development of any nation.CFP-Liberia was established in 2005 by a group of visionary youth to transform the lives of young people through community-based sensitization awareness for sustainable peace and development.The entity was incorporated in 2010 as a non-profit organization with an overarching goal of contributing to the development, empowerment, and self-sustainability of young Liberians.It focuses on the promotion of a culture of non-violence, reconciliation, promotion of education, and creating awareness of accountable governance and social transformation.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
