Four black men who never served a day in the military, used the stardom that comes with being NFL football players to disrespect the American Flag — and the men and women who have died defending it — prior to their football game on Sunday.
Four spoiled, self-absorbed black athletes who play for the Miami Dolphins didn’t care about supporting the pre-game ceremonies designed to pay respect to the 15th anniversary of 9/11. They cared more about shining the light on themselves and a racist group called Black Lives Matter.
Four overpaid, overrated black Miami Dolphins made complete asses of themselves by kneeling during the National Anthem on the most painful day in America. And as a person who ran from the Twin Towers 15-years ago, I am appalled by the actions of these 4 black men.
No matter how big the shoulder pads make them appear, as far as I am concerned Arian Foster, Michael Thomas, Kenny Stills and Jelani Jenkins are pathetic little black men who are no different than the Islamic haters who burn the American Flag.
If these 4 black punks were “real” black men — if they were “real” black tough guys — they’d spend their time during the off-season working with the young black boys who join gangs and kill each other every night. Instead of kneeling down, they’d step up and do something about helping young black men to escape the drugs that riddle black communities. They’d donate their time to help educate young black men about the pitfalls of impregnating young black girls out of wedlock.
Here’s what these four black fools don’t understand: by kneeling today they shined a spotlight on themselves in a way that forces me to write “black” at the start of every sentence. Yesterday, had I written about these 4 guys for whatever reason, I would have referred to them as “four football players.” But today they went to extremes to make it so America recognizes them as “four black men.” So, if they want to emphasize race in the same way the racist group Black Lives Matter wants to emphasize race, then each of the four black deplorables should be pleased that I have given them the attention they yearned.
The Dolphins subsequently released a statement on the controversy: “We encourage all members of our organization to stand at attention during the national anthem out of respect and appreciation for the freedoms we are afforded as Americans. We also recognize that it’s an individual’s right to reflect during the anthem in different ways. We respect these liberties and appreciate the sacrifices that everyone has made for our country, especially on this day of remembrance. We hope today’s events will continue a respectful and thoughtful dialogue in our community on unity, inclusiveness and togetherness.” In my opinion, that’s a long-winded statement that screams “political correctness.” It says the Miami Dolphins are a weak organization — no wonder why they can’t win a Super Bowl. Losers.
May God bless the victims of 9/11 and the families who miss and love them. May God bless the men and women of our military both past and present. May God bless America and the beautiful sound of the National Anthem.
