Anthem Kneelers Demand Team Owners Listen To “Special” Video

Ever since senate candidate Beto O’Rourke (or whatever his weird name is) said that kneeling for the National Anthem was as American as apple pie, some NFL players — especially ones based in Texas — have rallied behind the soon-to-lose candidate in an effort to help push his message.

What the players (and their fans) are too dumb to realize is that this Democrat candidate — a white guy — is simply pandering to minority communities in Texas for votes and using big name, African-American NFL players to accomplish that mission. It’s disgusting, sad and embarrassing to watch people fall for it. Yet, they still do.

Here’s an example of what one NFL player is doing with O’Rourke’s anti-American, pro-kneeling video that went viral…

The Hill reports:

“The tone he sets makes me proud to be a Texan & gives me hope that a productive dialogue is possible.”

His comments come after footage of O’Rourke, who is running to for a Texas Senate seat, defending players’ protests went viral last week.
Asked if players protesting during the national anthem was disrespectful, O’Rourke responded that he could “think of nothing more American” than peacefully protesting for a cause one feels strongly about.

He added that problems related to police brutality are “not going to fix itself.”

“And they’re frustrated, frankly, with people like me and those in positions of public trust and power, who have been unable to resolve this or bring justice for what has been done and to stop it from continuing to happen in this country,” O’Rourke said.

Okung praised O’Rourke’s statements, saying that the Senate hopeful was right when saying that players were “frustrated with those in positions of public trust & power who have been unable to resolve these issues.”

“I’m looking forward to today’s meeting in NYC,” Okung said. “I believe this face to face conversation is pivotal & will determine if meaningful progress will be made. Critically, I hope we can stop avoiding the conversation that @RepBetoORourke so eloquently encouraged us to have.”

The meeting between representatives from the NFL Players Association and NFL executives comes after a particularly controversial offseason for the league.

The league announced a policy earlier this year that would require players to stand during the anthem if they were on the field. The policy quickly drew backlash and the NFL eventually froze it in July after the NFL Players Association filed a grievance.
