Taking A Knee Is Wrong


September 28, 2017

I attended the Saints/Panthers game this past Sunday. Observing the Saints players taking a knee on the ground during the playing of the national anthem made me nauseous. In my opinion, there is a right way and a wrong way to exercise your First Amendment rights. They chose the wrong way. Countless athletes, non-athletes, people of all color, religions and political persuasions have died in their service to our flag. To witness such disrespect to their service is pathetic.

I have watched my last NFL football game until these overpaid, rude and selfish players learn the difference between respect and their so called social conscience.

As the public continues to rebuke their boorish behavior there will likely be a reduction in their ridiculous salaries. When that happens, they will not rise but jump to their feet with unmatched speed.
