How annoying are these NFL protests?
The level of disrespect and selfishness that motivates these millionaire athletes to kneel during the anthem is mind-boggling.
And it got even worse over Veterans Day weekend.
Like Memorial Day, it’s a day America gives their honor to our veterans – living or deceased – and express gratitude for their sacrifices.
Without these veterans, America might be overrun with Nazis and ISIS.
They are a valuable part of America’s freedom.
So when spoiled multi-millionaire athletes choose to kneel during the national anthem, they disrespect our family members who have fought and died for us.
But you would think that the past Sunday would have been the one day they could set aside their divisiveness and stand for the anthem in solidarity and unity to respect our veterans.
But that didn’t happen. And it proved to everyone just how despicable these protesters really are.
CBS News reports:
“Three players took a knee during the national anthem before the New York Giants game at the San Francisco 49ers, as the rest of the league stood during Veterans Day weekend.
49ers Eric Reid and Marquise Goodwin, both of whom have been protesting for most of the season, knelt, as did Giants defensive end Olivier Vernon, who was just activated. Vernon had been protesting while he was injured.
The NFL Players Association had asked all players to observe a two-minute moment of silence before games to honor veterans.
Last month, Commissioner Roger Goodell and several owners said that changing the language from “should stand” to “must stand” was not discussed at the league’s fall meetings.
Other players who have been protesting most of the season stood for the anthem this week, including the Seahawks Michael Bennett, who stood before Thursday night’s game.
Titans receiver Rishard Matthews walked onto the field holding hands with soldiers and stood with teammates for the anthem for the first time since President Donald Trump criticized players for protesting.
Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick began the protest movement last season. He remains unsigned and has filed a complaint that team owners colluded against him because of the protests – aimed at police brutality against African-Americans and other issues.
The California chapter of the NAACP is pushing to get rid of the national anthem, calling the song racist and anti-black.
Customers packed a New Jersey bar that decided not to show any NFL games to honor veterans during the Veterans Day weekend and to raise money for a veterans’ charity instead.
As many as 400 patrons stood and sang the national anthem at Woody’s Roadside Tavern in Farmingdale on Sunday.
Veteran Andy Barcellona said the idea came about after NFL players chose to kneel during the national anthem to protest racism and police brutality. He was shocked when the tavern agreed to turn off the football games.
Woody’s co-owner Chris Maltese told the Asbury Park Press the bar wasn’t trying to be political and just wanted to support veterans.
The event raised money for the Special Forces Association and military families.”
The NFL is internally combusting and sooner or later it will all come crumbling down.
And when these anthem protesters multimillion-dollar contracts deteriorate, they’ll finally realize that maybe they should have kneeled.
