Memo to Colin Kaepernick and the other mind-numbed, robotic, politically-correct, preprogrammed progressives in the vanguard of the NFL’s new artificially-intelligent pseudo-enlightened era: I am taking a knee, too. I am refusing to stand with you-or up for you. Moreover, I, too, am protesting the things I don’t currently like about this nation. I am protesting the “fundamental transformation” of the greatest nation the world has ever known.
I am protesting Obamacare, which has dramatically driven healthcare costs up as it has reduced choices for those needing insurance. I am protesting President Obama’s Caesar-like disregard for representative democracy and republicanism. I am protesting the staggeringly rapid expansion of government regulation and the equally quick rise in entitlement spending. I will sit for the anthem because thousands upon thousands of people who wish to kill us and end our way of life are being allowed to come streaming across our border, encouraged, aided and abetted by the government that our flag represents. My conscience mandates that I take a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” is played, because hundreds of thousands of innocent babies are killed in this country every year, and the party possessing executive power wants to ensure that taxpayer’s money- regardless of their beliefs- goes to fund this continuing holocaust.
I won’t stand and place my hand over my heart anymore because politicians in the U.S. have saddled our children and grandchildren with a debt so immense that, whether we choose to repay it or not, our economy is likely to be anemic- or much worse- for the foreseeable future. I will no longer even listen to the national anthem when played because every single tenet and value that made this country great is being mocked and attacked by radical Islamists, Black Lives Matter groups, Satanists, Hollywood, the mainstream media, Big Education, socialists and various other formerly fringe groups…with the full faith and support of almost every branch and offshoot of the United States government.
Make sense, Colin and crew? Who is more aggrieved? I don’t make a fraction of your salaries, and white, Christian, working males are blamed for almost every ill imaginable.
Standing for the anthem is supposed to be a sign of respect to those who have given their lives in defense of freedom and to the “pursuit of life, liberty and happiness.” If we can’t even all agree to do that, the time has come for us to part ways.
You should take a knee, at times Colin.
You ought to fall to your knees to give thanks in prayer for where you were born, that two white people adopted you as their own…and that you make $19 million a year for being a second string malcontent.
