For John, BLUF: I hope that no one is expecting me to respect NFL Players who take a knee for our mutual National Anthem. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From Mr Ed Driscoll, of PJ Media and InstaPundit, today.
NEWS FROM TODAY’S PRE-GAME WOKE OLYMPICS: “The Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots are playing in Mexico City today, but the kneeling protests did not stop at the border. Oakland’s Marshawn Lynch, who has been kneeling for the U.S. national anthem all year long did so again Sunday afternoon, but then he stood up while Mexico’s national anthem played in the stadium.”If it had been Beijing, China, there would have been severe consequences if he had knelt during the Chinese National Anthem.
On the other hand, I expect that here in America, where Lela Lee is selling a tote bag like the one below…
…they will be taking a knee until Soccer surpasses American Football as our Fall/Winter pastime.♠
