Profiles in Countermoonbattery: Jonathan Isaac

American sports have produced another August Landmesser. First we had Sam Coonrod in MLB, now Jonathan Isaac in the NBA:

During Friday’s game between the Orlando Magic and Brooklyn Nets, Jonathan Isaac caught everyone’s attention when he decided not to kneel nor wear a Black Lives Matter shirt during the National Anthem, unlike his teammates.

Isaac is apparently the only player in the entire NBA to stand for Old Glory during the national anthem. As with MLB and the NFL, the league has been absorbed by the Left. Professional (and college) sports are now a vehicle for race-based leftist agitprop.

They came at Isaac with the usual idiot question that is actually a truncheon: Don’t you think black lives matter?

His response:

“For me Black lives are supported through the Gospel. All lives are support through the Gospel. We all have things that we do wrong and sometimes it gets to a place that we’re pointing fingers at who’s wrong is worst. Or who’s wrong is seen, so I feel like the Bible tells us that we all fall short of God’s glory. That will help bring us closer together and get past skin color, and get past anything that’s on the surface and doesn’t really get into the hearts of men and women.”

Coonrod too was motivated by Christian faith to stand up to the bullies and refuse to kneel to a Marxist political sect that has been engaged in domestic terrorism throughout the country. No wonder progressives are so hostile to Christianity. It gives people the strength to defy them.

We have come to a pretty pass when it takes rare courage to stand for the American flag in defiance of radical left maniacs. Sports have fallen to the leftists. But so long as a handful of people have courage, there is still hope.

On tips from Adam, Mr. Freemarket, and Ed McAninch.
