Football has been a pastime for many millions of Americans.
But in recent years, it has been overcome with far-Left protests.
And what an NFL anthem-kneeler just said will infuriate every proud American.
Since the first time Colin Kaepernick kneeled during the national anthem during an NFL game, an anti-America movement formed.
Dozens of other football players began following suit, claiming they are doing it to protest racism in America.
But while they were doing that, many Americans were tuning out of NFL games, losing interest over a sport that is willing to allow players to disrespect their country.
Now, most players don’t kneel.
But Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid still does, and following a recent game he attacked rapper Jay-Z, who is partnering with the NFL, and stated that “we’re past kneeling,” and that they should take action instead of disrespect the flag.
Reid ranted against Jay-Z, stating that is “asinine” for him to “get paid” by the NFL to discourage players not to kneel.
The National Football Post reports:
Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid kneeled in silent protest before a 27-14 preseason loss to the Buffalo Bills on Friday night.
Afterward, he took another shot at the partnership between the NFL and hip-hop mogul Jay-Z, who said during an introductory press conference this week “I think we’re past kneeling … I think it’s time for action.”
“For one, when has Jay-Z ever taken a knee to come out and tell us that we’re past kneeling?” said Reid, per ESPN. “Yes, he’s done a lot of great work, a lot of great social justice work. But for you to get paid to go into an NFL press conference and say that we’re past kneeling? Again, asinine. Players Coalition 2.0, he got paid to take the bullets that he’s taking now because we’re not having it.”
Reid, who joined the Panthers three weeks into the 2018 season, kneeled before every game last year, although no Panthers teammates joined him.
According to the Charlotte Observer, Reid’s reason for kneeling is to “protest racial inequality and social injustice in America.”
It seems the anthem kneeling trend is coming to an end.
But there are a few players like Reid who aren’t going to stop.
Do you think NFL team owners should fire players who kneel during the national anthem?
