The widespread NFL protests over the weekend were disgraceful.
These arrogant millionaires are acting like they’re oppressed and ignoring what America has given them.
But what the Jaguars and Ravens players did before the game had many fans screaming betrayal.
The Jaguars and Ravens played a game at Wembley Stadium in London on Sunday.
But what’s plainly stupid is that many, or most, players kneeled during the American National Anthem, but actually stood for Britain’s God Save the Queen.
Presumably, they stood out of respect to Britain but clearly, all of them didn’t crack open their history books in grade school.
The irony, of course, is that while these players protest the inequality in America, they ignored the atrocities committed by the British Empire for centuries.
They ignored the British Empire colonizing and oppressing an entire continent, Africa. The British raped and murdered thousands of Kenyans during the Mau Mau uprising.
Also, they completely ignored the Amritsar massacre where 350 non-violent protesters who were gunned down by the British troops.
And who could forget exactly why Pilgrims left Britain in the early 1600’s and begin what we all now know as the United States?
It was to be free of British persecution.
Nevertheless, these NFL players protested America and respected Britain.
Fox News Insider reported:
“At this morning’s NFL game in London, several members of the Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars knelt during the “Star-Spangled Banner,” but stood during Britain’s “God Save the Queen.”
Almost all of the Jags’ on-field and sideline personnel could be seen locking arms during the American national anthem, including owner Shad Khan.
Some players stood while others knelt.
Footage showed several Ravens also kneeling for the anthem, which was penned in their home city by Francis Scott Key in 1814.
Pete Hegseth blasted the contrast on “Fox & Friends” saying it was unbelievable that they showed more respect to another nation – albeit a close ally – than to their home.
“This is going to hurt them in their wallets,” Maria Bartiromo said of the National Football League.”
Here is a video of player protest before the game.

The crimes of the British Empire are horrific, well-documented and absolutely inexcusable.
It begs the question: Why are NFL players okay standing for the song of a nation which has brutally raped, starved and murdered innocent people, but won’t stand for America?
The faults with America aren’t even close to being on the same level of the British.
The British have been responsible for some of the worst systematic oppression in our world’s history.
But, of course, they didn’t know that.
