ESPN’s Max Kellerman Denounces Playing the National Anthem at Sporting Events as “Injecting Politics”

Would you say that Colin Kaepernick injects politics into NFL games by theatrically refusing to stand for the Star-Spangled Banner? Not at all, according to his fellow moonbats at ESPN. It is the NFL that injects politics by playing the national anthem. Barks “First Take” cohost Max Kellerman:

“[Like draft-dodging Nation of Islam moonbat Muhammad Ali,] Colin Kaepernick also did not go looking for a protest. It came to him. He was asked to stand for the national anthem. You do not have to stand for the national anthem. And even if it it was a rule that you did, is that Colin Kaepernick injecting politics in the NFL? No. That’s the NFL injecting politics by playing the national anthem and putting pressure on you to stand for it in the first place.”

Speaking of injecting politics into sports, ESPN does it relentlessly, as this site has documented repeatedly (e.g., here, here, here, here, here, and here). ESPN’s ultra-left viewpoint may not be far outside the Overton window for sportscasters, who have an overwhelming tendency to be moonbats, but fans are another matter — they tend to lean right:

No wonder ESPN has fallen on hard times. As more people cut the cord, and cable companies are forced to respond, fewer people will have to pay for ESPN whether they watch it or not. Soon ESPN will face a choice: dump kooks like Kellerman and drop the leftist evangelizing or die.

Kellerman types: picked last in gym class, become leftist sportscasters.
