Liberals and celebrities claim that NFL players choice of protest is against oppression not the flag or military despite occurring during the national anthem and now High School students are following their poor influence.
Recently a group of high school students from Ames High School in Iowa decided to turn their backs on the American flag and walk off of the football field while the national anthem rang out behind them. Now these immature and poorly educated students are receiving attention from liberal media sources for their ‘bold’ stand against oppression at such a young age. What a bunch of BS.
Although these students were not members of the football team and instead part of the marching band, they nonetheless used NFL players example and their ‘platform’ on the field to bring awareness to the social issues gripping the nation.
More than a dozen members of the band linked arms and walked off the football field Friday night during a performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” An untold number of other band members refused to play their instruments.
“How can we be unified if there’s racism, sexism, and homophobia in our school,” one of the teenage malcontents told the Des Moines Register.
They denied they were disrespecting the flag or the military even though they really were disrespecting the flag and the military.
“It was an expression of my anger and sadness in the direction our country is heading,” one of the budding anarchists told the newspaper. “It’s to express I stand with people who are feeling persecuted or marginalized by the current president or people in power.”
Protesting during the national anthem, regardless of the cause, is disrespectful if that protest involves not standing at attention with your hand over your heart as every true American has done since the signing of the Declaration of Independence.
