The NFL player protest against the flag is not Constitutionally Protected

NFL players kneeling to protest the national anthem isn’t going away. Two owners say their players must stand; now the Commissioner wants a rule requiring all NFL players to stand. Vice President Pence famously walked out on the protest.

 

But here’s one thing you should know that many don’t: Even though the phrase free speech is thrown around, the players have no constitutionally protected right to protest the anthem.

NFL an ‘ally of the Left’

Bauer, Gary (American Values)NFL an ‘ally of the Left’

“The NFL has … not hesitated to shut down speech it opposes. For example, when Jake Plummerwanted to honor his friend American hero Pat Tillman, the NFL said, ‘No.’

“When the Dallas Cowboys wanted to honor five slain Dallas police officers, the NFL said ‘No.’ When Avery Williamson wanted to commemorate the 9/11 attacks, the NFL said ‘No.’

“When Arizona and Georgia tried to defend religious liberty, the NFL said ‘No.’ When Texas tried to keep men out of women’s bathrooms, the NFL said ‘No.’

“Clearly, the NFL under Commissioner [Roger] Goodell is an active combatant and ally of the left in the culture war against the values of millions of its most loyal fans. It has no problem bending its own rules to accommodate the left’s ideology.”

You’ve Got To Be Carefully Taught ( something a Coach of third grader football players should have done )

Just a couple weekends ago in Belleville, Illinois, every single player on a football team of youngsters—eight years old and under—took a knee during the national anthem.

The coach, Orlando Goodin, said his kids knew all about why people were protesting in the streets of St. Louis over the acquittal of former police officer Jason Stockley. He saw a teaching opportunity—and explained Colin Kaepernick’s decision to kneel during the national anthem. The kids asked if they could do the same.

So, sure enough, when the national anthem played, these third graders immediately took a knee, their backs turned away from the flag.

 

There’s a line from the old musical South Pacific that says, “You’ve got to be carefully taught.”
