Athletes Protesting the Anthem are Hypocrites or Worse
IWB ^ | Mark Angelides

All of these NFL players and now MLB players who are protesting the symbols and institutions of the United States are at best hypocrites and at worst liars. They have every right to protest any perceived insult or unfairness that they think exists, and I have the right to call the liars and hypocrites for it…It is after all my opinion…and it appears that opinion is all that counts nowadays. If you’re wondering why I use the specific term hypocrite or liar, let me explain.

They say they are protesting because of injustice, institutionalized racism and inequality. But let’s look at these in the cold light of reality.

We want equality.

Racial composition of the NFL should be proportionate to the racial composition of the general population.

Pay to NFL players should be comparable to professional women’s sports.

No discrimination. ..period

They are nothing more than duped useful idiots for the statist left’s anti-American, un-Constitutional, power grab. They need to be continually reminded of what useful idiots they are.

Perhaps the NFL should send the kneeling players to Sudan, North Korea, or Venezuela for an exhibition game.
After all, holding the exhibition games in London is sooo white supremist.

The NFL is certainly making the case for the draft.

These players are willing or unknowingly participating in a Saul Alinsky scheme to rub raw perceived injustices and then direct the mob against your enemies. In this case the enemies are white men who have jobs and the free market system.

Dishonesty is this as well,

“a woman walked into a club, and someone tapped her on the shoulder to say “Your blouse is exquisite.” The woman laughed and replied, “I’m not wearing a blouse that is my tattoo.””

and this, a mans statement on the reason for his new tattoo.

“I’m getting Top tattooed on my bald spot; Bottom on the soles of my feet; Back on my rump; and Front on my belly. That way invading aliens will know how to display my body.”
