National Anthem Kneelers and Other Morons

Kneeling during the national anthem is the latest fad among athletes that get paid millions of dollars to play a game. Let that marinate for a minute. THEY GET PAID MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO PLAY A GAME!!!

Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE the NFL. Football season is my favorite time of year. And I am a believer in free markets: If someone is willing to pay you $100 million dollars to throw a football (and do it poorly…cough…Colin Kaepernick), then $100 million dollars is a fair market value.

And I believe in free expression. So if you want to kneel during the national anthem while collecting millions of dollars to play a game, that’s you’re right. But here’s the thing: YOU ARE A FUCKING IDIOT. Seriously. There’s no good explanation of how a country in which you can MAKE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO PLAY A GAME is also a country that is systematically biased against you because of your race. None. Zero. It’s fucking stupid.

So keep kneeling during the national anthem, morons. And sleep well at night knowing you were blessed with million-dollar athleticism and a 10-cent head.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
