Several NFL players continue their unpatriotic displays during the National Anthem.
Fans are voting with their wallet and tuning out in droves.
And before the beginning of game 7 of the World Series, an amazing act of patriotism showed just how disrespectful the NFL protests have become.
In stark contrast to the divisive anti-cop rhetoric of the NFL, the Major League Baseball had LAPD officers sing the National Anthem.
From BizPac Review:
Major League Baseball made sure the national anthem for Game 7 of the World Series would be a memorable one.
Instead of coddling cop-hating players like the currently unemployed Colin Kaepernick (perhaps, not for long), MLB brought out the Los Angeles Police Department quartet to sing the national anthem.

Contrary to the revisionist history being re-written in real-time, the major justification for Colin Kaepernick taking a knee during the national anthem was that police were purportedly killing African Americans at a disproportionate rate.
Turns out, that’s not the case, as an exhaustive study at Harvard shows, and as was covered in the New York Times.
Nonetheless, the National Football League chose to continue its “awareness raising” of the bogus narrative by permitting players to engage in protests (and specifically, this political protest) during the national anthem of football games.
Major League Baseball, despite a few moments of national anthem protesting, has been relatively above the fray. Earlier during the World Series, a seventh inning stretch rendition of “God Bless America” infuriated left-wing observers.
Tonight, its choice to bring out police officers got a big seal of approval.
NFL millionaires take note… Americans stand for a police officer singing the National Anthem at #WorldSeries https://t.co/UfW8dscpaL
Police officers singing the National Anthem at World Series. Now, that’s patriotism! #PlayBall #WorldSeries
@realDonaldTrump All standing, hands over hearts, for the National Anthem in game 7 of the World Series, in progressive Los Angeles.
As an added blow to the NFL’s rep – or rather, what’s left of it – all the players apparently stood, and many even put their hands over their hearts.
The National Anthem is supposed to be a unifying ceremony. It honors the sacrifices people have made to make America the freest and most prosperous country in world history.
Baseball embodies the spirit of the country. The popularity of the sport spread throughout the Americas and to the Far East, and Major League Baseball is now one of the most diverse sports in the world.
The NFL could learn something from America’s pastime…before it’s too late.
