So the ‘Chief’ is celebrating MLS lifting a ban on players kneeling during the national anthem. But why would anyone encourage a society to be created which normalises sporting icons taking a knee during the national anthem of a democratic country?
A communist perhaps.
The ban on kneeling during the American national anthem was implemented in 2017 following Megan Rapinoe kneeling during the national anthem. A move that was inspired by NFL player Colin Kaepernick. Three years before the horrific murder of George Floyd, so kneeling during the national anthem clearly hasn’t helped. Instead, Megan Rapinoe who is a self-proclaimed feminist should fix her own shit by no longer working for personal corporate sponsors including Samsung, Procter & Gamble and Nike who pay their female staff less than their male staff.
The theory of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. So why expect anything to change once MLS players start to kneel once again during the national anthem.
What happens when kneeling during a national anthem is normalised and widely accepted you might be asking. Instead of improving society, the person who started the trend cashes in by signing an exclusive contract with Disney.
It would be far more useful if the Chief, Rapinoe and Kaepernick put forward real suggestions to prevent people from being killed by the police. Such as members of the public not using counterfeit money to buy groceries so the cops aren’t needed in the first place?
Just like Disney shrunk down black actor John Boyega from the Star Wars The Force Awakens poster following its release in China, it’s highly unlikely any Disney movie featuring a Colin Kaepernick as the lead role will even be released in China considering China has since blamed black people for spreading coronavirus throughout the country.
Anyone want to take a knee for that cause, thought not.
