Is your Patritism being Bought?
Don't think President Trump's Tweets are an expression of his opinion. As commander-in-chief of the military, they are threatening retribution or else.
The military has given out millions to the NFL, for "patriotic advertising ." The department of defense has purchased military flyovers, military bands, soldiers singing the anthems. This is not spontaneous, voluntary patriotism. We are viewing a real live version of a Jim Carrey movie, "The Truman Show", where he is living in a movie stage but does not know it. We must pull back this curtain because we are being deceived.
The players are resisting and questioning, because they were used as props, in a dangerous movie. Their support and patriotism can no longer be bought, it must be felt and deserved. They have just come to the crossroads, early. Sports fans are also being used. At a sporting event, we must pretend to pray to the flag, or else.
"This anthem thing is a scam. This is not actually part of football. This was invented in 2009 [by] the government paying the NFL to market military recruitment, to get more people to go off and fight wars to die,” said actor and civil rights activist Jesse Williams, in an interview with MSNBC. “This has nothing to do with the NFL or American pastime or tradition.”

Sports fans should never condone players that do not stand proud for their National Anthem or their Country. NFL should change policy!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 24, 2017
