The Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars teams took a knee in defiance of Donald Trump at Wembley Stadium today after he said sportsmen who ‘disrespect America’ should be ‘fired’.
DISRESPECTING OUR FLAG…FOR WHAT?
Players from both Jacksonville Jaguars and the Baltimore Ravens dropped to their knees as the national anthem was played prior to the match in London.
GO FIGURE! DON’T FORGET THIS WAS ABOUT SUPPOSED ‘POLICE BRUTALITY’ – THEY’RE DISRESPECTING OUR MILITARY AND OUR POLICE OFFICERS IN FRONT OF THE WORLD…EMBARRASSING!
No players were kneeling during the playing of ‘God Save The Queen’, which followed the US national anthem.
They did so after President Trump had stoked tensions by saying NFL players who protested during the national anthem should be sacked by their team.
LOSERS! BOYCOTT THE NFL!
At a rally on Friday night the president said: ‘Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bi*ch off the field right now… he is fired.’
He was referring to a controversial string of protests started by player Colin Kaepernick last year when he sat or kneeled during the anthem to highlight the treatment of black Americans.
SO THIS GETS BACK TO THE “TREATMENT OF BLACK AMERICANS”?
Is anyone else out there 100% FED Up! with this? Boycott the NFL!
IN CASE YOU MISSED TRUMP’S COMMENTS:
President Trump is known for not holding back and he certainly didn’t on Friday during a speech in Huntsville, Alabama. He lashed out in a BIG way at NFL players who don’t stand during the national anthem. He said team owners should remove the silent protesters from the field…
Trump, appearing at a campaign rally for US Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.) said he wished NFL suits would take a hard-line stance against players who take a knee while “The Star-Spangled Banner” is played before kickoff.
“We’re proud of our country, we respect our flag,” Trump told supporters in Huntsville.
“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when someone disrespects our flags to say, `Get that son of a bitch off the field right now! Out. He’s fired! He’s fired!“
…Trump then pranced around the stage, arms extended, to soak up wild applause from supporters chanting, “USA, USA, USA!”
Trump predicted that an NFL owner will take such action – although the league is arguably doing that already, by keeping former San Francisco 49ers quarterback.Colin Kaepernick off the field.
“You know some owner’s going to do that,” Trump said. “He’s going to say, `That guy who disrespects our flag, he’s fired!‘ ”
