NFL Players Hide From National Anthem In Locker Room on Thursday Night Football

Here we go again… folks, it’s only the pre-season in the NFL and players are already disrespecting the National Anthem in droves. They’re doing it by kneeling, raising their fists and now, hiding in the locker room while it plays (meanwhile, thousands of America-loving fans stand and hold their hands over their hearts or fire off a stern salute).

This is probably only a small taste of what will follow in the regular season, when players know the cameras are on them or that the liberal media will praise their efforts to avoid the Star-Spangled Banner altogether.

ChicagoTribune reports:

Philadelphia Eagles defensive backs Malcolm Jenkins and De’Vante Bausby remained in the tunnel during the national anthem before the Super Bowl rematch against the New England Patriots , a week after raising their fists in protest in the exhibition opener.

Defensive lineman Michael Bennett remained in the locker room Thursday night, NBC Philadelphia reported on Twitter . A picture tweeted by the station showed Jenkins and Bausby bowing their heads as they looked out toward the field.

enkins and Bennett have been among the most vocal NFL players protesting racial inequality during the pregame playing of the “Star-Spangled Banner.” The NFL Network tweeted a video of Jenkins coming out for warmups wearing a shirt that said, “YOU AREN’T LISTENING.”

There were no player protests before the other two preseason games: Jets – Redskins in Landover, Maryland, and Steelers -Packers in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Share this all over social media if you’re SICK and TIRED of seeing these players continually disrespect the country that allows them to make millions of dollars throwing a ball around a field!
