Another $50 From Fran

  • A political and emotional brush fire is smoldering within a grieving Chicago Fire Department over a national anthem protest that marred a charity football game dedicated to the memory of two fallen Chicago heroes.

    Camron McGarity, an African-American firefighter, kneeled while the Star Spangled Banner was being played before the CFD Blaze faced off against the Chicago Police Department’s Enforcers last Saturday in the eighth annual “First Responders Bowl.”

    A photo of the protest clearly shows the firefighter, wearing the No. 7 jersey, kneeling on the sidelines while players on either side stood at attention dressed in bright red jerseys and matching red pants.

    Fired Chicago Police Superintendent-turned-mayoral-challenger Garry McCarthy, who was at the game at Brother Rice High School on the Southwest Side, said the solo protest generated plenty of “grumbling” among the crowd of roughly 1,000, in part, because the game was dedicated to the memory of slain 18th District Commander Paul Bauer and former dive team member Juan Bucio, who died during a Memorial Day rescue on the Chicago River.
CFD is making noise about banning him from the team, and since it's a club sport (not an officially sanctioned CFD organization), we imagine they're completely within their charters to do so. It doesn't make him any less of a dick for being inappropriate at a moment meant to honor a deceased firefighter diver.

How sick of a person, let a lone a first responder, to do something like this in this setting. Both sides of the field know they too could die at work every day, while also memorializing the recent fallen, and this clown does this under the false narrative that the police kill people for no good reason? How fucked up is that? How long will this lie go on? Or be tolerated?

The DemocRATS supported this type of protest. This not a protest. It's an attack on our values.

Wow! Unbelievable and a disgrace to the uniform. That added bad rap is gonna follow him for the rest of his career. Heard he's not a team player at Eng. #57'S house and is always getting written up. To take a knee on (1)Memorial Day weekend, (2)at a charity event to honor Chicago's recent fallen hero's, what a J.O. Sorry #57 for that individual. I know the rest of you guys at #57 are stand up.

Everyone has a right to protest, but for f*ck sake, there's a right place and time to do it, AND THIS WASN'T IT!! You disrespected YOUR fallen comrade and his family, you disrespected OUR fallen comrade and his family. Congratulations and good luck fitting in anywhere in CFD after this, douchebag. 🖕🖕

Troll reader: Cammy made a very poor decision. I wonder how competent he is as a fireman? I was watching D-Day coverage yesterday in amazement at what some of these servicemen did on D-Day during interviews. It is total disrespect to them in my view, Stand up, shut up, take your stupid hat off and be quite for two minutes. Show respect for your fellow citizens. Thank god for that generation or we would all be speaking Japanese or German now.

While you're reading this post, please keep this in your memory for future reference. Media reports are touting Eric Holder as a potential democratic candidate for president in 2020. This entire narrative, proved false in Ferguson, Missouri was expanded and touted by Holder as well as Obama (Travon Martin could have been my son). All of this fiction, expanded and embellished with the latest land grab for the Obama library in Jackson Park. It just goes on and on. So keep all of this in perspective. We always say "never forget" so remember this, wherever you may be in 2020.

It's not only concerning, but also troubling that a Chicago firefighter would put on such a racially-oriented display. In an emergency, could this fireman be trusted to serve citizens of all races equally?

Conduct unbecoming.

He does not represent any of the entire United States First Responders.
Will Rahm or his Commissioner denounce this act as such?

Suppose a house has a flying The Flag out on the porch, and someone inside is in need of medical or fire assist and this guy shows up.
How will he respond, because the occupant may be patriotic, does he give 100% to that assignment?
How can anyone trust his integrity?
Same application of principle to the two CPD District kneelers.

There’s this group of people who have some hateful, twisted, made up perception that there’s a overtly mistreatment of criminals who fight lawful arrest. That’s their opinion, that’s the opinion and beliefs of Rahm and Special Ed as well as any other mayoral lackey that wants to keep their job.

I guess if someone is going to start inciting discontent among others for whatever supposed injustices at roll calls or on/off duty representations, the City has to make it clear that such is, as Rahm puts it, “offensive and not who we are” and dish out discipline those who practice these acts.

This will be swept under the rug and another disgruntled employee will be silently rewarded.

Cut him from the team is a start.

This just makes me sick...goofs like this who really want to make it all about themselves. Absolutely no respect for anything, fellow comrades, living or dead, the Holiday, just no respect. Would you want to depend on this piece of sh** in a fire and expect him to have your back??? My retired CFD husband wouldn't piss on the right side of him. Nothing will happen, he knows that he is 'untouchable' in the current climate and doesn't care. No one has the balls to follow through on any type of action against him and he knows this.

Marines KNOW what the Flag represents.
Marines KNOW the pain and human cost of battle, and what the words of our National Anthem mean.
Marines defend the Flag and the National anthem.
Regardless of misguided protests that do NOTHING but dishonor the memories of those who fought against REAL injustice and backed it up with their LIVES.

The CFD Commissioner trades on his service to his country as a Marine every opportunity he can.
Talks about where he’s been and what he’s done.
The mayor has publicly praised the former Marine.
No action taken.

And if we put the Flag and National Anthem aside for just a moment. (sad to even do that)

Look at who the contestants in this game were. Not people who kneel, but people who charge ahead.
Look at the lives of Commander Bauer and FF Bucio.
LOOK AT THE FAMILIES in pain and yet standing in honor.

And then look at the sad kneeling figurine.
He must have not been paying attention when Mom and Dad were teaching him about what is inappropriate.

Making noise is all the CFD does when it comes to discipline. They seldom take any action. Double stand when it comes to CFD and CPD

Well seeing as thou the team is not really sanctioned by the CFD he can’t sue them.
Also seeing as that it is a privately run sports club they should be able to let whoever
they want in or out of the club.

IMO what he did was and is totally despicable.
But seeing as that he did this on his own time and that the team isn’t really part of the CFD.
Maybe the same should go the same for ALL the other menebers that are being investigated
for the FB post with Ald Arena. In fact seeing as Santiago isn’t doing anything to him as he was
OFF DUTY, doe s that mean that EVERYONE who has ever been disciplined for an OFF DUTY act will now have their record whipped clean and reimbursed if any money was lost.....ija

He is despised by fellow firefighters and has been ran out of many houses. He always pays his weekly food dues in pennies just to be an extra special jagoff, hoping someone says something so he can sue. He is a despicable subhuman piece of excrement and his retirement party will be held in a phone booth. He is militantly un-American and should leave this country. He would do best kneeling in hell, fellating Satan.

Dear Brothers & Sisters,

Thank you to the Chicago Fire Department Blaze Football team for another great year.

I have been supporting this team since its inception 9 years ago. This is a great fundraiser against our rivals the CPD Enforcers, which benefits our Gold Badge and Gold Star widows and orphans, it’s very competitive and a lot of fun, and I hope that we can continue this yearly fundraiser.

I was appalled and embarrassed of the classless behavior of one of our members this past Saturday. This game was about honoring our Line of Duty Death Brothers Paul Bauer, CPD and Juan Bucio, CFD and their families for their bravery and commitment to the City of Chicago.

This was not the place to make a self-serving, attention drawing, pot stirring statement. This person has not made this statement at any other games this year. He chose this game for this classless act for his own personal gain.

I apologize to all the CPD and CFD players, their families and friends who were upset by this selfish act.

His kneeling is an overtly racist statement. How will he perform his job, which is to protect property (from fire damage) and rescue, if he perceives some of the people needing his help to be his oppressors? Not exactly the person I want to show up to rescue my child (we're white) from a burning building. He just might decide the world is better off with fewer of his perceived enemies and not exert himself to help.

Racism has no place in rescue work. He should be fired.
