It’s 2018 and yet the NFL is full of players who continue to “take a knee” during NFL games, and we’re only in the pre-season. Millions of American’s just want the game to go back to being about one team vs. the other and put this controversy behind us.
We get that players are expressing their right to free speech but fans say it needs to be kept off the field and not while players are on the job.
Political commentator, Liz Weeler has just about had enough and sets every kneeling player straight in one epic takedown of the NFL National Anthem protest.
“Let’s not pretent #TakeAKnee is about free speech. It’s not. Players have been fined for dancing in the end zone.” Weeler said.
“If the NFL was so concerned with protecting free expression, where was their defense of the players who wanted to honor the victims of 911 on their cleats? Oh that’s right. The NFL forbid that.”
“If the NFL was so concerned with protecting free expression, where was their defense of the players who wanted to honor the murdered Dallas police officers with decals on their helmets? Oh that’s right. The NFL forbid that too.”
The NFL regulates what happens on and off the field when it suits their agenda.
She continues, “America is the country where less than 1% of the men and women take the oath to protect us all from enemies foreign and domestic. They fight and die so we are free to sit in a stadium on Sunday afternoon and watch a football game in safety. That’s what you disrespect when you turn your back on our flag.”
Watch the full takedown in the video below. It’s brilliant.
