The Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers are one of the most heated rivalries in pro sports. Their rivalry was put on hold while they stood together for the national anthem.
“The Penguins and Flyers, two of the fiercest rivals in sports, united in solidarity this afternoon, to stand up against social injustice, racism, and hate,” a tweet from the Penguins said. “The teams stood as one across each club’s respective blue lines prior to today’s game.”

All Work, No Play: McConnell Declares Election will be 'On Time'

Mick Jagger, Aerosmith, Others Demand Politicians Stop Using Their Music at Events
Music artists like Mick Jagger, Elton John, Aerosmith, Sia and over 50 others signed a letter demanding that politicians stop using their music at political events and rallies without their consent.
“Being dragged unwillingly into politics in this way can compromise an artist’s personal values while disappointing and alienating fans,” the letter from the Artist Rights Alliance reads. “For artists that do choose to engage politically in campaigns or other contexts, this kind of unauthorized public use confuses their message and undermines their effectiveness.”

AMAZING! More Than 100 Police Departments Pull Out of Security Detail for DNC
There seems to be some common sense that remains within the police departments.
I don't mean that as a jab at police, but rather at the country full of idiots who lack common sense. My point is that contrary to the rest of the country, at least many police departments have common sense because they're not stupid enough to put themselves in harm's way like the liberals are doing on the street.
