Anti-Americanism is spreading like a disease.
The unpatriotic protests that dominated the headlines in the NFL were championed by the mainstream media despite backlash from the fans.
The latest anthem protest that happened at a Major League Baseball game will have you shaking your head all over again.
At a Seattle Mariners game, an elementary school choir was selected to sing the national anthem. However, two of the young girls knelt during the rendition.
Two young girls took a knee while performing the national anthem at Sunday’s Seattle Mariners game.
The school choir from Seattle’s Mount View Elementary School was invited to Safeco Field to sing the national anthem, but even as most of the kids stood to sing the nation’s theme, two girls took a knee:

Here at Safeco Field where an elementary school sung the anthem and two students took a knee while performing.
The girls’ protest follows more than two years of controversy since former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick began protesting the anthem at the start of the 2016 NFL season.
A Mount View Elementary spokeswoman told HuffPost that the protest was an “individual act” by the girls. The district also noted that it “respects [their] First Amendment rights.”
The girls have not been identified, nor have their ages been disclosed.
While protests became ubiquitous in professional football, such displays have been more rare in Major League Baseball. Though, last season, the Oakland As’ Bruce Maxwell became the first MLB player to protest the country during the national anthem.
This act mirrors incidents where Pop Warner kids took a knee before their games. This is what indoctrination looks like.
Kids are either being taught to disrespect the flag, or they’re being encouraged to do so by the mainstream media that glamorize the behavior.
It’s one thing to report the news. It’s another thing to turn protesters like Colin Kaepernick into heroes on the level of civil rights titans and fête them with various awards.
The media have been complicit in the ideological possession that’s taken place, and it needs to stop.
