The National Anthem has become a major talking point yet again during the NFL Preseason, and the characters might have changed but the message remains the same. Michael Bennett and Marshawn Lynch are the subjects of the latest scrutiny, and as usual the masses are labeling them as anti-military and anti-America.
"Michael Bennett went to a military school!"
These guys are NOT anti-america, or anti-whatever you want to label them as. They have spoken to the very members of the military that you are speaking on behalf of with your outrage, and the message is consistent and clear. We don't all have to agree, but we don't need to do what we are doing now to the athletes who let their voice be heard.
Colin Cowherd explained how the rhetoric would prevent him from kneeling during the National Anthem, but that is his own choice and one he respects others make themselves.
