The national anthem represents a lot more than a song to be sung by Americans.
Many men died for our flag, the American flag, and the song that tells its story. Our great nation and the people who are lucky enough to live in it should give thanks for those who sacrificed so much for us to be free.
Take the time to view this video. Learn what the flag represents and the song that was written about the story behind how the flying of the flag has such importance, ‘The Star Spangled Banner’.
Freedom comes at a cost and no one has the right to disrespect those who gave all for America and her people. I believe that President Trump is right to be upset with the way the NFL is acting.
The NFL is a tax-exempt organization. They should respect the country that is giving them this right.
“IRC 501(c)(6) provides for exemption of business leagues, chambers of
commerce, real estate boards, boards of trade, and professional football
leagues (whether or not administering a pension fund for football players),
which are not organized for profit and no part of the net earnings of which
inures to the benefit of any private shareholder or individual.”
I am sickened at that some NFL players, coaches and owners have left this ‘taking a knee’ to the national anthem go on for this long. It is time for all good Americans to show them that we will not tolerate it.
If sponsors cut out the NFL and people stop watching the games, especially on television, maybe salaries will go down? Let them learn the hard way; through their pockets.
