Kaepernick disease continues to spread. Thanks to the encouragement of the people in charge, it is completely engulfing the NFL. Tomorrow night the entire Philadelphia Eagles team is planning to use the national anthem as a pretext to make a spectacle of their contempt of America:
Football fans can expect to see another protest during the national anthem on Monday Night Football when the Philadelphia Eagles meet the Chicago Bears. Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins gave the head’s up this weekend during an interview on Philadelphia’s Sportsradio 94WIP, a CBS affiliate.
Jenkins gibbered that the reason the Eagles want to be sure everyone knows they despise America is…
“just to continue to push forward the conversation about social injustice, and that’s a range of things from police brutality to wages and job opportunities, education. There’s just a lot of things systematically that have been set up in this country since its inception that put minorities, especially African Americans, at a disadvantage when you talk about quality of life and actually growing in this country.”
In other words, it’s an all-purpose “America sucks because race-based leftist politics haven’t been shoved far enough down everyone’s throat” gesture, oriented around blaming the USA for the inevitable consequences of the way some blacks choose to behave.
To watch these overpaid, hyper-privileged thugs openly display their hostility to everything we revere on the grounds that they are “oppressed,” when in any other country they would be scraping by doing manual labor, is too much to swallow. At long last people have had enough:
The drop in TV ratings for the NFL wasn’t confined to Monday night.
With the dust settled on Week One, the NFL saw a reduction in most key apples-to-apples comparisons from 2015 to 2016.
Via Forbes, the Thursday night opener between the Panthers and Broncos drew 25.2 million, down eight percent from 2015 (Steelers-Patriots) and six percent from 2014 (Packers-Seahawks). Also, Sunday night’s game between the Patriots and Cardinals generated an audience of 23.1 million. Despite the game being decided at the last second, the audience fell by 14 percent, in comparison to last year’s Giants-Cowboys Sunday night opener.
This trend will continue as more people become aware that disrespecting the national anthem isn’t just a childish act by a handful of spoilt idiots. Spitting in the faces of the audience in the name of moonbattery has the full support of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who could quickly put a stop to this if he so chose.
A middle finger to America is the official message of the NFL. By watching NFL games, you endorse it.
