We’re at the point where liberals are just going to pile on with the useless hateful rhetoric against President Trump with total disregard of reason.
The amount of disdain can be overwhelming but it’s important to tune it out. Every once in a while, what’s said is so incredibly obtuse and disrespectful that it’ll give you an aneurism attempting to wonder how they came to that ridiculous conclusion.
And that’s exactly what happened with what this Trump-hating NBA coach said about our American flag.
New reports suggest that NFL players will not only kneel during the national anthem for the upcoming season, but executives in the league office, including Commissioner Roger Goodell, will allow them to without fear of suspension or fines.
This all transpired over the last couple of weeks when New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees revealed he would never agree with someone who kneels during the national anthem. But that controversy quickly blew up in his face, forcing him to apologize, and even reversing course on his philosophy.
Soon after, Goodell issued a public statement saying the NFL believes “Black Lives do matter” versus All Lives mattering.
And that’s when San Antonio Spurs Gregg Popovich forcefully inserted himself into this rhetoric by defending disgraced former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, and the American flag as a symbol.
In an interview with the New York. Times’ Maureen Dowd, Popovich said, “A smart man is running the NFL and he didn’t understand the difference between the flag and what makes the country great — all the people who fought to allow [Colin] Kaepernick to have the right to kneel for justice. The flag is irrelevant. It’s just a symbol that people glom onto for political reasons …”
Popovich added that Goodell “got intimidated when Trump got on the kneeling [and] he folded.”
Firstly, can you believe we have a celebrated NBA coach who believes the American flag is “irrelevant.” It might be “irrelevant” to him but not to the millions of Americans who understand the sacrifices made for that flag. Many of us have ancestors who died for that flag. Anything other than recognizing that simple fact, is what’s actually “irrelevant.”
Secondly, President Trump is the duly-elected President of the United States so to accuse the NFL of “bending the knee,” so to speak, isn’t accurate at all. President Trump’s victory proves he is the conscience of millions of Americans.
Coach Popovich also took aim at the seven NFL owners who have donated upwards of $1 million to Trump’s campaign in 2016.
The Spurs head coach said, “It’s just hypocritical. It’s incongruent. It doesn’t make sense. People aren’t blind. Do you go to your staff and your players and talk about injustices and democracy and how to protest? I don’t get it. I think they put themselves in a position that’s untenable.”
That depends on how close-minded people really are. Why do people think that a political donation is any of their business? What’s worse, liberals automatically assume the worst about every one of President Trump’s supporters when their reasonings could be personally motivated, and also, none of your business.
But this is the kind of dangerous rhetoric that far-left people in prominent positions spread all the time. And Spurs Head Coach Gregg Popovich might be the absolute worse to do it across the sports and entertainment industries.
