‘VIEW FROM THE RIGHT’
By MARK PETOSA
Politics & Sports merge…’Would athletes be willing to fight for America today?’
Over the past few years, privileged athletes have shown complete disrespect for America and the men and women in the military.
Despite earning millions of dollars a year, they still feel like they are being oppressed.
Today’s athletes think because they have a first amendment right, they can do, say, and act however they please without any consequences.
My relatives fought in World War II as fighter pilots to protect their family’s freedom, but today’s athletes act differently.
Would athletes be willing to fight for America today?
While recently viewing some games, including the NBA and NHL playoffs, I watched athletes stop playing only to protest America instead.
The NBA and NFL even went so far as to allow their athletes to kneel, raise their fists in the air, and wear jerseys that display phrases such as Black Lives Matter, Equality, and Never Forget, among others.
It’s absolutely appalling to see how privileged athletes, who are paid millions, feel that they can trash our great American Flag. Is it because they believe they are special, and can influence everyone just because they play sports?
Remember, when you go to the polls this November, a vote for Biden means you are supporting what these athletes are doing before every game.
