Why do liberals hate our military so much?
Our military is literally the last line of defense between war in many facets. Not to mention, our veterans and current military deployed protect our freedoms on a daily basis.
And you’ll never believe what head coach of the Golden State Warriors, Steve Kerr, just said about military displays.
President Trump got a lot of flack from liberals recently when he wanted to do a military parade.
Trump got a lot of flack from liberals recently when he wanted to do a military parade
Trump said in February that it would be “great for the spirit of the country.”
The parade was scheduled for the 100th anniversary of the armistice that ended World War I.
That was until the Trump administration and the Department of Defense put a $92 million price tag on the event.
Trump instantly canceled the parade because of the cost.
Head coach Steve Kerr of the world champion Golden State Warriors said that military celebrations made him feel “patronized.”
Coach Kerr told NBC Sports, “… sometimes it feels like we’re being patronized. Like this is being used. We’re just playing a sport here, and it feels sort of nationalistic if that makes sense. So we are kind of wandering down a dicey path on this front.”
People seem to have short memories or a lack of knowledge about history when it comes to these events.
Our military put their lives on the line every single day to protect us from foreign tyranny.
They should be celebrated every single day.
The thing that seems to be quite obvious about Kerr’s comments is that military celebrations are fine but just not when it comes to sports.
That’s a ludicrous notion because the only reason athletes get to do what they do in America is because of our military.
We should celebrate them every chance we get.
Kerr is a big Colin Kaepernick supporter too.
Kaepernick led the anthem-kneeling movement that disrespected our military.
These people just don’t know American military history.
Kerr even blamed the 9/11 terrorist acts as a factor that played into increased military salutes at sporting events.
He said, “I think 9/11 absolutely spurred a strong military dynamic to all of our sporting events. What better way to feel connected [between the team and the audience] than to feel patriotic and to see the flag and to see members of our military who fought for our country.”
Is that supposed to be a bad thing?
After 9/11, it was a moment in history where Democrats and Republicans came together in solidarity. That was amazing.
And Kerr made that into a bad thing?
The head coach also criticized the NFL over its national anthem policy before they did away with the rule before this season.
He said, “They’re basically trying to use the anthem as fake patriotism, nationalism — scaring people. It’s idiotic, but that’s how the NFL is handling its business. And I’m proud to be in a league that understands that patriotism in America is about free speech.”
The irony is that the NBA has a much stricter national anthem policy.

No player or coach is allowed to kneel for the anthem without severe consequences.
That could be suspensions or fines.
Kerr said, “We feel like we’re partners.”
It’s likely that he doesn’t know the NBA’s policy on the anthem after that statement.
There are so many people behind the curtain that save our lives on a daily basis and we don’t even know about them.
When an F-16 flies overhead it shouldn’t be condescending or “fake patriotism.”
It’s respect and nothing more.
Do you think Kerr crossed a line with these comments?
