The NBA is about to return, the MLB is in major disarray due to a coronavirus outbreak amongst the players, and the NFL is still planning to start the regular season as scheduled.
But while the coronavirus is the main subject to focus on here, the metanarrative is that all of these leagues will all have a rampant number of players kneeling during the national anthem.
And President Trump had these four words for sports leagues allowing players to kneel during the national anthem.
When disgraced former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick first kneeled during the traditional pregame national anthem in 2016, it was the biggest slap in the face to our veterans and police forces.
But it should make you wonder whether Kaepernick knew he was opening Pandora’s Box or whether it was just pure happenstance.
Did it happen organically or was there a sinister ulterior motive knowing eventually that anti-American divisiveness would inevitably lead to civil unrest like it is right now?
All indicators point to the long con and you can see that in what’s about to be rampant in all sports leagues amongst nearly all players, which is more continued kneeling during America’s coveted song.
That toxic infestation in the NFL has officially bled out into all the other American sports leagues.
We already know that every single NBA player will kneel during the national anthem later this week, which was suggested would likely happen by commissioner Adam Silver.
That’s why President Trump has stepped in to put a stop to the nonsense the best way he could.
President Trump announced on Twitter, “Looking forward to live sports, but any time I witness a player kneeling during the National Anthem, a sign of great disrespect for our Country and our Flag, the game is over for me!”
This is a great symbolic message of the greatness of America. It takes somebody like President Trump to stand up to the anti-American divisiveness.
His tweet came after San Francisco Giants players were shown taking a knee last Monday night during the national anthem in a game at the Oakland Coliseum.
And the MLB had the audacity to respond to a critic of the protest video on Twitter saying, “It has never been about the military or the flag. The players and coaches are using their platforms to peacefully protest. Supporting human rights is not political.”
Tell that to millions who have given their lives for the American Flag. They literally gave up their freedom to protect our freedom and you are muddying the issue that this isn’t about the American flag?
Giants’ team manager Gabe Kapler took a knee with his players too and after the game he explained why: “I wanted them to know that I wasn’t pleased with the way our country has handled police brutality, and I told them I wanted to amplify their voices and I wanted to amplify the voice of the Black community and marginalized communities as well.”
This is all well and fine to do that but not during our country’s song. The ramifications and implications are grave when the rampant abuse against our country continues with such impunity. This shouldn’t have to be said but apparently it does.
