The following article, Multiple NFL Players Take A Knee for the National Anthem On Thanksgiving Day, was first published on Flag And Cross.
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.
The players were protesting against police brutality and racism in the U.S.
No thanks! https://t.co/IYQSotnMG9

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.

They couldn’t even stand to honor the heroes who sacrificed and died. It’s disgusting.
