The reason? I don’t want to read it if they don’t have a good reason.
To be fair it didnt feel political to me when I saw...plus Beyonce is asked to sing the National Anthem pretty often and she does it well. Albeit there was a slight lip syncing controversy when she was sick.
He was focusing on the show that he and his wife had put together, including picking the singers for the first two songs.
He said it wasn’t out of protest.
I would like to think I’d stand, even in a private room (where I didn’t think the camera would catch me!)
But I don’t stand in my home when it’s on before a game.
I don’t think it was on purpose.
But then he goes on to say how he made major protest statements with the columbian and spanish singes he chose so he’s still an idiot.
But I dont think he sat out of malice.
Either way, I realized once again what a Beautiful and Poignant song it is and how so many have sacrificed so much for our country.
I also wonder if simmons know that a black man was one of the first to die on our side in the battle of which the song is based on.
LOSERS BOTH OF THEM
I cant dit during the National anthem. Doesnt matter if people are around or not
Because I’m a putz!
When I was on Active Duty some officers I knew timed their arrival and departures so they could avoid saluting the flag in front of the building. I always thought that was atrocious behavior for an officer. I always felt it was an honor to realize they were working with the flag and stand and reflect for a moment of appreciation. Those moments that build joy.
These imbeciles took their honeymoon in Potemkin Cuba.
If Beyoncé sings the National Anthem, it is 100% self serving.
Did she leave her Antifa endorsed Kill a Cop Today costume at home this year?
Thugs. Pure thugs.
Move back the “The Continent” if this place is so disgusting
Jay who? Is he some relation to Zorro?
His reasoning for his “protest” theme for the show sounds as if he actually is a racist...that is why he chose “perceived non whites” for the show. Gotta please those fans...rake in the dough. Total rich entertainment guru.
He’s absolute scum:
So, it was a coincidence that the media just happened to be standing beside you filming your ignorance of the event?
This former drug-slinging, wannabe pimp-master and accomplished piece of shit is not worth the time it takes to even think about why he would or would not do something of this nature.
A pox on him, sitting or standing.
And his slut wife, also.
Doesn’t even have the courage to admit he sat on purpose, what a coward.
No explanation needed....you are a billionaire drug dealer who is above respect for the USA....take your money and go back home...where are the Black Star Liners???
When I was serving in the Navy the call for "attention to colors" had some sailors diving for the hatches to get off the weather decks rather than stand at attention and salute as the flag was raised or lowered. I could not understand that, either.
