Remember all the Hollywood liberals that came out and said they would move if Donald Trump got elected? Yeah! How many of them really followed their word and moved? Probably one IF that!
With all the NFL players kneeling during the national anthem, here’s one player that stands out! I think you’ll like what he has to say too!
While a great many players have participated in the protests since Friday as a way of rebuking Trump, several have come out in defense of his statement and explained why they refuse to partake in this meaningless protest.
Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe is one of the players who has refused to kneel. On Sunday he issued a statement defending his decision not to kneel, and asked a tough question of those who do, NBC Sports Pro Football Talk reported.
“But like I said to each their own it’s AMERICA! The greatest country in the world and if you don’t think we are the greatest country in the world and you reside here, then why do you stay? A lot worse places in the world to call home. Proud to be an American,” read the statement he sent to ESPN.
That’s the one question that I can almost guarantee none of the protesting football players would ever answer. It’s easy to declare that the United States is a terrible place, but it’s a lot harder to find an actual reason that would make you want to leave.
“I stand because I respect the men who died in real battle so I have the freedom to battle on the field. Paying tribute to the men and women who have given their lives for our freedom is why I stand,” Wolfe’s statement continued.
“But everyone these days likes to find a reason to protest and that’s their right. It’s America and you are free to speak your mind. I just feel it’s disrespectful to the ones who sacrificed their lives and it’s maybe the wrong platform,” the statement read.
It is important to remember that for all their bellyaching, these NFL players are raking in millions of dollars. There are very few other countries in the world where these men could make so much money for what they do.
In the United States, these players are allowed to make millions of dollars, and then go disrespect the very flag that gives the opportunity to make vast sums of money.
It’s nice to see here’s one NFL player who gets it!
ALL NFL players should stand and respect the men and women who died in REAL battle so that these multimillionaires could have the freedom to play football. ALL NFL players should pay tribute to those who have given their lives defending their freedom.
Yes, this IS America! Yes they have the freedom to protest! However, protesting and kneeling DURING the national anthem is TOTALLY disrespectful! You want to protest! Protest on your own time! Not during a game and NOT during our national anthem!
Kudos to NFL Denver Broncos Derek Wolfe who believes that during the national anthem Americans should be paying tribute to the men and women who gave their lives for our freedom!
