Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stood for the national anthem and he also recited the Pledge of Allegiance. Dr. King recognized American exceptionalism. Why can’t these supposed modern day civil rights advocates do the same?
The other day Alabama won the 2018 college football championship over Georgia in overtime. It was a game filled with giant physically strong men, clashing with one another and at times literally flying through the air. Professional and college football is comprised of teams of men, so huge, fast and strong, that they make the rest of us look tiny and slow. Yet for some reason, these giants are cowards, so afraid of any boos from the stands that they hid in their locker rooms to avoid addressing the American Flag during the playing of The National Anthem.
Giant strong men, scared of criticism, sticks and stones will break my bones, but names and words will never hurt me. They claimed they were protesting the supposed violence that apparently police had inflicted upon minorities. Even though they had zero data to back up their claims, they stood by their protests, like illiterate nincompoops. While they were on the clock, getting paid to play football, on company time. They happily oblige to trash the flag and the anthem of the Nation that guarantees their rights.
