The national anthem protests rose numerous reactions, among which the audience can witness hypocrisy of the NFL and its supporters among mainstream media regarding this issue.
The executive director of the NFL Players Association, DeMaurice Smith, this weekend obviously made dumb remarks, made this remarkably clear:
“No man or woman should ever have to choose a job that forces them to surrender their rights,” he stated Saturday, just one day after President Trump made the vulgar statement that the team owners should fire all the players who disrespect the national anthem and protest.
“We understand that our job as a union is not to win a popularity contest and it comes with a duty to protect the rights of our members,” Smith continued. “For that, we make no apologies and never will.”
Entire left including politicians, media, and Hollywood agreed with Smith, and supported the NFL concerning this issue, attacking President Trump for allegedly trying to violate NFL players’ rights.
Mike Lester, a conservative cartoonist, made a clever cartoon but there is only one problem.
