Civil War II. There is no safe place from this Leftist hatred of America. They can’t show respect for their country for only 90 seconds every week on the playing field. They can protest anytime, it’s their 1st Amendment right as an American! But this is done precisely during the National Anthem to inflame racial tensions, not alleviate them. Disrespecting veterans and enlisted, firemen and cops, those of us who love our country and love our flag. It’s hateful.
The players and coaches wore Black Lives Matter T-shirts in warmups before the game, which was nationally televised on CBS. The players also knelt during a moment of silence before kickoff.
“We took a knee today to protest racial injustice, police brutality and systemic racism against Black people and people of color in America. We love our country and we have taken this opportunity to hold it to a higher standard. It is our duty to demand that the liberties and freedoms this nation was founded upon are extended to everyone,” the Thorns and Courage said in a joint statement released before the game.
