In a Prager University YouTube video, Joy Villa attacks those who take the knee during the US national anthem as ignorant and ungrateful:
In America, where you are free to sit or stand during the national anthem, sitting when you should be standing is more a statement about you than about America.
You come off, frankly, as ignorant and ungrateful: ignorant about a country that works to correct its faults, and ungrateful for the opportunity and freedom that it offers all its citizens.
For that, I’m standing.
I’m Joy Villa for Prager University.
In 2016, Scientologist and Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan stated that the Nation was 100% behind Colin Kaepernick’s taking a knee for the national anthem:
For Joy Villa and Prager University to insult Mr. Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam, or anyone else for that matter, as being “ignorant” and “ungrateful” on their right to take a knee during the national anthem is hateful and bigoted. However, it is hardly surprising as Joy Villa is a hypocrite and an opportunist who has suddenly reinvented herself as a devout Republican. She will say whatever Dennis Prager and her new Republican friends want her to say.
As Vinnie James discovered and announced to his Twitter following, Joy Villa purged her Twitter account of all mentions of Scientology after she realized that the horrednous reputation of Scientology could be a problem amongst her newfound ultraconservative Republican friends.
What is very telling is that Joy Villa has pictures on her Twitter feed from her dominatrix days whereas she has scrubbed every mention of Scientology:
Bottom line: Christianity and Scientology are antithetical. Joy Villa knows this and yet she lies about it. However, as Christianity sells well to Republicans then Joy Villa will be a Christian if that is what her new audience wants to hear. What her new audience also wants to hear is that only ignorant ingrates would refuse to stand during the national anthem.
My position on the national anthem at sporting events is simple: Professional sports is a for-profit commercial enterprise. Why should any business require its customers and employees to stand for the national anthem? Is this even legal? When you buy a car, go shopping, or take a commercial flight on an airplane you are not required to stand for the national anthem. In my view, professional sports should discontinue the use of the national anthem at the beginning of the games. The same applies to NASCAR and all other professional sports.
Professional sports teams and their leagues are money-making businesses that are like any other business: They work to make the maximum amount of money and pay the minimum amount in taxes. This is why food, drink, and parking is so damned overpriced at sporting events. The NFL charges top dollar for its licensed merchandise. So what does the NFL’s profitability have to do with the national anthem? Nothing at all. The national anthem is just NFL marketing and positioning. If the playing of the national anthem at all professional sports events stopped tomorrow, and I wish it would, professional sports would go on making money.
The NFL has stupidly allowed its games to become a litmus test for patriotism. In doing so, it’s income has tanked and it is facing a potentially disastrous lawsuit from Colin Kaepernick.
Scientologist Joy Villa has now obnoxiously jumped into the fray courtesy of Dennis Prager and Prager University.
Wiki on Dennis Prager:
According to NPR, Prager “often targets multiculturalism, Muslims and LGBTQ people.” Prager’s “inflammatory views and past statements about gays, liberals and others” have stirred controversy.
Prager opposes same-sex marriage. He has suggested that same-sex marriage will lead to polygamy and incest In 2014, he claimed that the “heterosexual AIDS” crisis was something “entirely manufactured by the Left.”
Prager endorsed Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election… Friedersdorf noted that Prager had in 2011 said that Trump’s profanity “render[ed] him unfit to be a presidential candidate, let alone president”; that he could not “trust the integrity or conscience of a man or woman who publicly humiliates his or her spouse” through adultery; that those who lie to besmirch the names of others cannot be trusted; and that “any human being with a functioning conscience or a decent heart loathes torture”.
In 2015, Prager headlined the title of one of his columns about the Iran nuclear agreement, “1938 and 2015: Only the Names Are Different”, implying that Obama was the equivalent of Neville Chamberlain whose Munich Agreement with Hitler is widely regarded as a failed act of appeasement toward Nazi Germany.
