Kneeling During the National Anthem

The playing of the National Anthem at sporting events and other venues is a time to honor this American nation, the American flag and all of those who fought and died for our freedoms.  The proper response is to remove your hat, stand up, place your hand over your heart, sing if you want to, or otherwise be silent until the music stops. 

When you kneel during the National Anthem you desecrate the American nation, the American flag and all of those who sacrifice to keep America a free nation and a mighty nation.

When you kneel during the National Anthem you shame yourself, your country and our armed forces serving around the world to keep our nation safe. 

When you kneel during the National Anthem you dishonor the flag. 

Say what you want, but the flag is the symbol of freedom around the world; revered by millions.  The red, white and blue.  The stars and stripes.  It means something and stands for something much bigger than an individual or any sports league.

Professional and collegiate athletes are some of the most privileged people in this country.  They should realize the opportunities they have and the talents they possess.  For those athletes who insist on protesting something, they should understand that kneeling during the National Anthem shows disrespect and scorn for our flag and country.  If you want to protest by taking a knee you have choices:   in the locker room;  outside the stadium;  in the end zone before the National Anthem.  Real men don’t dishonor this country or its flag!
