When ESPN ran an article saying that the singing of the American National Anthem was “staged patriotism” and that it was essentially a racist act, the MSM lauded the insight, they gushed over how sad it was that this “song” seeks to oppress minorities, especially when sung by members of the Police or the Military.
The Anthem is there to unite ALL Americans. It doesn’t matter your colour, sexual orientation, political views, it is there for all of us to show pride in a nation that offers you the protection of rights, free speech, education, the right to own property, and the right to be who you want to be. When they protest the Anthem, they are protesting America.
Didn’t ESPN learn from the Colin Kaepernick debacle? Nobody wants to hire him! Sports events are one of the few areas of modern life tat haven’t yet been taken over by Minority Lobbying Groups, or Special interest groups. They are one of the few places in the country where people from all races, wealth groups, orientations, religions etc… can get together and unite in supporting one thing: The Game! When you are side by side with another fan and your team wins, you hug and high five with those around you, it matters not who they are or what their background. THIS IS THE IDEAL OF A SOCIETY! And this is why
When you are side by side with another fan and your team wins, you hug and high five with those around you, it matters not who they are or what their background. THIS IS THE IDEAL OF A SOCIETY! And this is why the Left want to politicise and destroy it. Because it brings people together and doesn’t foster division.
It seems like we cannot go anywhere or read anything without politics getting involved, and that includes sports magazines. We are witnessing complete and utter ignorance at its finest.
Bizpac Review reported that senior writer of ESPN The Magazine, Howard Bryant, wrote a piece talking about why police officers and military personnel should not sing the National Anthem before major sporting events. Weird! We wonder what this has to do with the NHL playoff bracket. The quick answer is: absolutely nothing.
You might be wondering why he would want to stop people from singing the National Anthem. Ironically enough, it is because he thinks that it amounts to “staged patriotism” that will cause an “authoritarian shift at the ballpark.” Really, now?
I guess it makes perfect sense. If you want to stop authoritarian shifts at the ballpark, you should BAN PEOPLE from A SONG! Does he not see the hypocrisy here?
If you stop everyone from singing the National Anthem, that is the textbook definition of an authoritarian move. It is entirely different when people sing the National Anthem because they LOVE THEIR COUNTRY. The one fundamental difference between the two? Choice.
You do not get to go around taking away choices from people. We live in the United States, not Communist China. Bryant is probably the same kind of person who believes that healthcare is a RIGHT, not a service — call it a hunch.
A discussion took place on Fox and Friends where the issue was discussed. Everyone agreed that Bryant was out of line. He is only looking to further his political ideology through a sports magazine.
You can try to hide it however you like; it does not mean we won’t catch on and call you out on your nonsense. Peter Doocy said on Fox and Friends that Bryant wants to stop the National Anthem from being sung because it feeds into the 9/11 hero narrative. Weird. I don’t recall seeing Bryant going into burning buildings on 9/11 and rescuing people. Who is he to determine who is a hero and who is not?
The truth is evident: He is upset because if you believe that the police officers who saved lives on 9/11 are heroes, it would indeed clash with the Black Lives Matter movement — and we wouldn’t want THAT, would we? Bryant thinks it is okay to support a terrorist movement like BLM, but cannot find it in himself to honor police and firefighters who put their lives on the line. Do you see the problem here?
ESPN has become nothing more than an anti-American, anti-Trump channel. Should people boycott them? Let the nation know!
