Last year, the NFL made it clear that they would not allow decals on Dallas Cowboy helmets in honor of five officers slaughtered by a Black Lives Matter follower because it would set a precedent. They also threatened a player with a fine if he wore 9/11 socks because it could set precedent. The precedent they didn’t object to was trashing 9/11 and kneeling out of disrespect for our flag.
The Seattle Seahawks announced on September 11 2016 that they would stand with interlocked arms during the National Anthem before the game against the Dolphins, in “a stand for social justice” — which is Marxism.
This superficial intrusion of politics into football by pampered rich kids has a lot of people offended.
What should also offend people is they are standing for Marxist social justice which is in complete opposition to what the US flag stands for.
A month later the NFL threatened to fine a Titans player for wearing cleats that honored the victims of 9/11
The Seattle Seahawks astood with interlocked arms during the national anthem in 2016 in “a stand for social justice”, which is Marxism.
Dolphin’s Arian Foster knelt and raised a [commie-black power] fist in the air during the playing of the national anthem on 9/11.
Foster was joined by Dolphins teammates Michael Thomas, Jelani Jenkins and Kenny Stills in his silent protest of the treatment of African-Americans by police.
Kansas City’s Marcus Peters raised a commie fist during the Anthem on 9/11.
What a nice way to honor the radical Islamic terrorists who killed nearly 3 million innocent Americans.
In August of last year, the Dallas Cowboys wanted to show support for the five Dallas police officers tragically murdered in July for just being in uniform by sporting helmet decals for the 2016 season, however, the NFL stepped in to shut the movement down early.
That is unlike what they did with the movement to shut down the anthem.
Ironically, the excuse they gave was they are afraid of setting precedent. They didn’t mind setting precedent when they made their players wear pink during the entire month of October and they are currently talking about naming November as social justice month. That is clearly the precedent they want to set.
In September 2016, Roger Goodell, the NFL commissioner praised the actions of Colin Kaepernick who walked around in cops are pigs socks and sported Castro t-shirts. Goodell has in the past come out in support of the violent Marxist hate group Black Lives Matter.
Goodall says the players have rights and we have to respect that. They feel strongly about things. Apparently they don’t have rights to support dead police or 9/11.
The game operations manual, not the rulebook as many have reported, lays down rules about the national anthem, and this is what it says:
The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem.
During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.
If you have any doubt that kneeling during the anthem isn’t about hating our country and that the NFL is willfully complicit, this should prove otherwise.
