Last month, we reported that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick turned on America when he refused to stand as the national anthem played before a game.
Kaepernick tried to defend his shameful show of disrespect by race-baiting.
“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” he said of his protest. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”
Since then, these race-baiting protests have spread throughout the football world like wildfire as the NFL continues to refuse to punish players who take part in disrespecting the national anthem. Unfortunately for the NFL, however, this move just came back to bite them in a big way.
IJ Review reported that ratings for NFL games are majorly down for the third week in a row. The NFL’s three primetime packages are each seeing double-digit percentage decline in ratings thus far.
Many are starting to think this ratings plunge is because a growing number of fans are refusing to watch football until Kaepernick and his fellow race-baiters are punished.
James Olson is a Michigan football fan who lamented that football is supposed to be a politics-free zone.
“I want to say to these guys ‘If you weren’t playing in the NFL, you would be working at McDonalds.’ I think people have had it,” Olson said. “Sports used to not be a stage for this, and now it is, so I’m turning it off. I refused to watch the Chicago-Philadelphia game because they were going to protest …You start to figure out you can get along without football, there are other things out there I can do.”
If the NFL wants people to start watching again, they need to PUNISH Kaepernick and ALL race-baiting players who protest the national anthem! SHARE if you agree!
