Former Fox News legend, Bill O’Reilly, finally broke his silence regarding the NFL players who have decided to kneel during the National Anthem or raise their fist in defiance of American freedom.
And let us be the first to tell you — O’Reilly hit the nail on the head. With a sledge hammer. He NEVER disappoints…
Bill O’Reilly has waded into the debate over anthem protests in the NFL by suggesting players who disagree with the league’s policy should move to Canada.
In May, the NFL introduced a new anthem policy, which states players would have to either stand on the sidelines during the national anthem or wait in the locker room.
Plans to implement the proposal were put on hold last month after the NFL Players Association filed an official grievance over the policy.
The former Fox News host, however, has suggested players who disagree with the policy should simply not play and move north of the border instead.
“The NFL has to wise up and say, ‘You don’t want to kneel, you can stay in the locker room,’” he said when interviewed by Newsmax TV’s Wayne Allyn Root on Monday.
“’If you come out of the locker room, we’ll fine you $10,000 at the first offense and at the second offense, we suspend you.’
“Players don’t like it? Don’t play, go to Canada.”
The NFL has been embroiled in political controversy since 2016, when then San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick opted to kneel rather than stand during the national anthem as an act of silent protest against social and racial injustice.
