The liberal mainstream media is going after Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott because of recent comments he made.
It’s the leftist journalist and talking heads’ way of sending a message that if you’re not going to align with our views then we’re going to slander you in the press.
And Prescott just shut down that whole press with an epic response.
Dak Prescott sided with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones last week when he implemented a new team policy that all of his players would stand for the National Anthem regardless of what the NFL league offices decided to do.
Prescott told the media that he doesn’t feel it’s necessary to kneel for the National Anthem and that he would stand this season, implying that there is a time and a place for it.
This was on the back of the NFL and the NFL Players Association agreeing to freeze the anthem-kneeling ban because an amendment for the Miami Dolphins conduct policy leaked to the Associated Press and the liberals went ballistic over it.
So then the media called Prescott an “Uncle Tom” for appeasing Jerry Jones but he shut those insinuations down when he said that he is “not at all tempted” to take a knee in protest.
He continued, “[I]t’s bigger than I think some of us think. It’s just important for me to go out there, hand over my heart, represent our country and just be thankful and not take anything I’ve been given and my freedom for granted.”
But the media has this twisted way of implying that Prescott is against all of the anti-American anthem-kneelers for having a patriotic approach towards the flag and National Anthem.
He originally told the media on July 27th, “I never protest during the anthem, and I don’t think that’s the time or the venue to do so. The game of football has always brought me such a peace, and I think it does the same for a lot of people, a lot of people playing the game, a lot of people watching the game, a lot of people that have any impact of the game. So when you bring such a controversy to the stadium, to the field, to the game, it takes away. It takes away from that. It takes away from the joy and the love that football brings to a lot of people.”
This is exactly how it should be done.
Imagine if a Trump supporter wore his Make America Great Again hat at his private business for whatever product he’s selling with Trump 2020 signs proudly displayed in his windows, liberals wouldn’t purchase anything in that store out of spite.
So why does this have to be any different?
The liberal media trashes anybody boycotting the NFL because of the anthem protests as being irrational but they just don’t get what the American flag and National Anthem mean to them.
Despite being an enormous multibillion-dollar business, it’s their right to do that but they’re going to lose fans. It’s as simple as that.
Prescott absolutely shouldn’t have but he was forced to clarify what he said, “I made my statements. I stand by what I said. Some people may have misunderstood or whatever, but I know what I said, and I feel strongly about what I said. It is what it is.”
Star Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliot also defended Prescott and Jones decision by saying,“I think that’s just the way you guys want to take it. Us as a team, we chose to stand together for the national anthem. It was our decision. I think it just shows our culture. It shows that we have unity. We’re going to stand as one. That’s not knocking anyone else who may choose to kneel during the national anthem. But we’re the Dallas Football Cowboys, America’s Team. We stand for the national anthem.”
That means this was a team decision but that doesn’t take away from how they all feel individually.
Yet the media perpetuates these players as being subservient to their “owner” as if he’s a “slave master.” It’s preposterous and at least Prescott didn’t give in to that nonsense.
