It’s Just Started… Look Who Just Gave The Ultimate ‘F You’ To The Veterans At MLB Game
President Donald Trump recently blasted disrespectful and racist NFL players for protesting the National Anthem during football games. America didn’t have to wait until Sunday football to see if the overpaid sports star celebrities would take a knee in defiance of President Donald Trump. That’s because a baseball player stole the limelight of the weekly protest.
A rookie catcher, Bruce Maxwell (who?), of the Oakland Athletics, took a knee during the National Anthem before his game with the Texas Rangers. This occurred at the Oakland Coliseum and fans were immediately irritated with the rookie’s lack of respect for America and our veterans.

Earlier in the day, Maxwell posted a number of tweets denouncing Trump for saying that the NFL should bar players who knelt during the anthem in protest of police shootings of African Americans.
He also hinted that he would take a knee during the anthem – a gesture that no other professional baseball player has made since the trend was first started last year by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
This is because baseball players were smart enough not to act this stupid. Then comes this unknown dunce named Bruce Maxwell who thinks it’s cool and trendy to take a knee during the National Anthem. This will likely be the only thing the guy is ever known for and it won’t amount to anything for him. He will find himself in a world of irrelevance with Kaepernick.
The athletes and celebrities of today need a refresher course on who fought for their freedom and why it’s disrespectful to the veterans.
When someone does something for you, giving up their life in the process, then you honor them – you don’t disrespect them.
Our military fought long and hard to accomplish what would eventually become known as American freedom. Our athletes have every right to protest because the military fought for that as a freedom – but what our athletes are doing to the American Flag is absolutely disrespectful to the people who gave up their lives. When someone fights for your freedom, then you don’t thank them or honor them by
When someone fights for your freedom, you don’t thank them or honor them by protesting them. It’s like a fat kid protesting free ice cream – it just doesn’t make any sense and it’s absolutely horrendous to treat someone like that.
Our overpaid athletes forget they’re at work. They forget they’re entertainment. They forget that Americans don’t want politics mixed in their sports. If someone wants to protest when they’re on their own time, then go for it. Athletes should not bring their racist or disrespectful political views, skewed by abhorrent liberalism, trashing our President or veterans into their field of work.,,,,,,
