The fact that sports commissioners are allowing players to turn games into messages for social justice shows exactly who is in charge – and it’s not the adults.
Taking a knee during the national anthem should never be allowed, nor respected.
From New York Post:
“No thanks!” the president wrote on Twitter Wednesday.
Trump fired off the two-word response after Detroit Lions’ quarterback Matthew Stafford and Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson took a knee before the teams’ annual Thanksgiving game at Ford Field in downtown Detroit.Trending:
The players were protesting against police brutality and racism in the U.S.
Even though these NBA players stood for a moment of silence to commemorate the 19th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, they still knelt once the Star Spangled Banner began playing.
Pathetic. Enough is enough!
Keep digging your own grave @nba and Adam Silver. Letting these entitled guys take a knee on #9/11. Be ashamed. Losing more and more viewers because of the constant disrespect.

NBA players kneeled during the national anthem on the anniversary of 9/11.
They couldn’t even stand to honor the heroes who sacrificed and died. It’s disgusting.

Only in 2020 would standing for the National Anthem be considered a newsworthy story.
Magic’s Jonathan Isaac chooses to remain standing as the rest of the Magic and Nets players and coaches take a knee and lock arms during the national anthem.
