President Donald Trump said what every disgruntled fan of the National Football League has been saying since Colin Kaepernick started this trend of protesting the U.S. National Anthem.
At a Friday night September 22nd political rally in Huntsville, Alabama, President Trump called for the fans to boycott the teams of the NFL that allow their players to continue in this form of protests. The TV ratings of the NFL has been on a steady decline since September 2016 when then San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick started this sickening trend of disrespecting our national anthem and the men and woman that has served and are currently serving in the military.
Trump addressed the crowd by saying, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, “Get that son of a b***h off the field right now! He is fired. He’s fired!” To that the crowd erupted with applause and chants of “USA! USA!”
Later on in President Trump’s speech to the crowd said the football in America is not the same anymore since the referees have been clamping down on aggressive tackles, throwing penalty flags when they hear what they think is the crack of a violent hit.
“They are ruining the game, right? They are ruining the game. Players on the field ‘want to hit.”
“But you know what’s hurting the game more than that? When people like yourselves turn on television and you see those people taking the knee when they are playing our great National Anthem.”
“The only thing you could do better is, if you see it – even if it’s one player – leave the stadium. I guarantee things will stop. Things will stop.”
“Pick up and leave. Just pick up and leave.”
But wait and see folks the likes of ESPN, MSNBC, and CNN will try and say President Trump is trying to limit the free speech of the athletes. But this is more the right of speech these protest are nothing more than a show of disrespect to the national anthem and to the troops of our country.
