President Trump and his moronic minions just love to say that athletes who kneel during the playing of the national anthem are somehow disrespecting the American flag and the country. That’s total BS, but Trump and his fawning acolytes cannot stand to see black men bringing attention to the issue of racial inequality in the United States.
As it turns out, those who complain so loudly about dissing the flag have their own special ways of proving that the flag is nothing but a piece of cloth.
Consider the case of this man who showed up for a game Sunday between the New England Patriots and New York Jets. He’s wearing a T-shirt which reads:
“I STAND FOR THE NATIONAL ANTHEM.”
But take a look at the colorful “blanket” he’s resting his ass on. It’s the freaking American flag! How’s that for bringing honor to the stars and stripes?
The guy who took the photo of this great American asshole reports:
“Basically, me and my friend were walking around the stadium sometime during the 3rd quarter. There is a huge tv screen by the food carts right inside the stadium where people gather to watch. We went over there to check it out and we saw him spread the flag out and sit down.
“I thought it was too ironic so I snagged a picture. He sat on it for a few minutes before leaving.”
Yeah, nothing says pride and respect for all things American quite like plopping your butt down on an American flag and catching a football game. Didn’t Trump call for a protest of all NFL games? Then why is this lazy sack of crap showing up and helping to support the league by buying a ticket?
It’s enough to make you question the legitimacy of the clown in the Oval Office, who probably gets even more upset if someone doesn’t stand for the Russian flag.
