Time for some real talk about NFL players vs. our nation’s warriors who are being disrespected by them.
These players protest inequality while making $10 million a year throwing a ball in a country protected by men and women who make $35k a year and risk their lives for these players to be able to do so. All they are doing is showing fans what hypocrisy looks like. Taking a knee does nothing. Contributing your paycheck does something. Stand up and man up, whiners. You aren’t making a point. You’re making a fool of yourselves.
Players sprain their wrist — they take a month off. Warriors lose a limb … they fight to go back to battle.
Players have a bad day … they get a concussion. Those who serve have a GOOD day and they don’t die. Let’s not forget that.
And the hypocrisy … oh, the hypocrisy. Players get fined for demonstrations of faith in the end zone or altering uniforms to show unity with those who hold the thin blue line or protect our country. So why would we give these men who are apparently “role models” a soapbox with which to disrespect our nation?
