A democratic house representative took a knee in support of the NFL players who refuse to stand for the flag and national anthem. Even though this action was began by Colon Crookeddick under the reign of Obama, she blames.. you guessed it.. TRUMP! And she claims that Trump criticizing the NFL for allowing players to disrespect the flag and country to be ... wait for it.. RACIST!http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/09/26/dem-rep-jackson-lee-takes-knee-on-house-floor.html
I think she's wrong to do it but my best guess from her statement,
"I kneel because I will stand with those young men, and I'll stand with our soldiers, and I'll stand with America, because I kneel,"
She's addressing one of the criticisms people are making: It disrespects the military, the people who served, and the people who died. She's trying
to make it seem patriotic.
What's really shocked me about Texas, where she's a rep, is that the Cowboys, the f-ing Cowboys, took a knee.
