BOOM: Dallas Cowboys Defy Obama By Taking Massive Stand for Police

This is beautiful. One wave after another our Dallas Cowboys showed Obama what America is all about! Jason Witten, Dez Bryant and Tony Romo all walked arm-in-arm onto the field with the families of the Dallas officers who were gunned down in the name of BlackLivesMatter. A tribute that will certainly set the example for all Americans who have forgotten what we stand for. This is not Obama’s America.


From Police One:

“This moment here is overwhelming,” Brown said in a brief news conference after the ceremony before the team’s first full practice Saturday.

“Our profession — and I’ve repeated this — hasn’t seen a lot of support from communities because of some of the problems we see in communities with police relationships. So support like this really is priceless.”

Families of four of the five officers killed in an ambush in downtown Dallas during a Black Lives Matter rally were represented, and children were among those holding hands with Dallas players. Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings also was there, along with other officers and several councilmembers.

The Cowboys also unveiled a helmet decal they will wear in the preseason and possibly the regular season. It says “arm in arm” in a circle around a star meant to symbolize a mix of the Cowboys’ famous logo and the star Dallas police wear on their uniforms.

After taking the field in four waves, players and coaches formed a circle with the Dallas contingent for a moment of silence. Brown addressed the team and shouted “Dallas strong” as he wrapped up his remarks.

“I would like to say thank you to the Dallas Cowboys for lifting a city up today,” Rawlings told reporters after the brief ceremony. “Those families, those young kids — to be arm-in-arm with a quarterback, a coach or a big lineman — they’ll remember that for the rest of their lives.”

Dallas owner Jerry Jones gave his usual camp-opening speech to fans in stands next to the adjoining fields. Then he went into the locker room along with other dignitaries before emerging in the first line of the first wave, which included Witten. Romo was in the second group, and Bryant the last.

“The special thing about our game is that it can bring a community together,” Witten said. “It can lift you up when you’re down. Today was all about that. We just wanted to honor them, just show support and a tribute to them.”

No doubt an overwhelming moment for all those in attendance. Especially if you are just reading about it, this is powerful. Thank you Dallas Cowboys. If America ever needed such an example set, it would be now. May this show of patriotism set a blaze and spread like wildfire.
