Colin Kaerpnick’s anti-American protests have outlasted his crappy football career, as many NFL players are now picking up where Kaepernick left off last year with their disgusting antics. Thanks to these “oppressed” millionaire football players, we can’t even turn on a game anymore without one of these idiots disrespecting our country and our nation’s flag. Now one pissed off NFL player has finally decided that enough is enough, and is going after Kaerpnick and every kneeling player with a vengeance, by starting a tradition of his own to combat these nasty anti-American protests.
Every time these “oppressed” anti-American players take a knee during our National Anthem, it’s a slap in the face to every single American soldier who has fought, bled, and died for the very same country these players continue to protest with their nasty behavior.
This trend has let many NFL fans to simply turn off the television, as a increasing number of Americans are disgusted with these racist players who keep hijacking America’s favorite pastime to make disgusting political statements on the field. Now one equally pissed off NFL player in the form of Cincinnati Bengals’ tight end Tyler Eifert, took a direct shot at Colin Kaepernick over the weekend with a scathing and powerful rant about why everyone should honor our country and our flag in a paper called “Why I Stand,” while coming up with an incredible new tradition to take the spotlight over these kneeling protesters.
“I stand because I want to honor the people putting their lives on the line for me on a daily basis in the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Coast Guard,” Eifert began.
Eifert knows the sacrifices that it takes to preserve our nation’s freedom first hand, as his cousin is a pilot in the U.S. Air Force. “My cousin is risking his life flying F-15s in active war zones” — noting that this is a risk “all members of every branch of the United States military willfully take.”
Eifert, who has played in the NFL since 2013, said he now plans to combat these Kaepernick-inspired protests with a tradition of his own, where he now plans to write the name of a different military member on the heels of his shoes before each game, “whether active, retired, killed or missing in action, or a prisoner of war.”
The first Soldier that Eifert will honor is Pat Tillman, “the former Arizona Cardinals player who declined a multimillion-dollar contract to fight alongside his brother in the U.S. Army following the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks,” IJ Review reported.
Tillman died in 2004 serving in combat in Afghanistan. Eifert went on:
“In 2002, he [Tillman] walked away from millions of dollars and a ‘dream’ most people couldn’t imagine achieving to do one thing, fight for his country,” Eifert wrote. “Pat wasn’t fighting for himself, he wasn’t fighting for one group vs. another; he was fighting for Americans.”
Fifteen years after Tillman gave up his NFL career to give the ultimate sacrifice for his country with his life, Eifert said he is “sad” to see the division that is plaguing America, and says that our flag is the only thing that can unify us. He continued:
“In this world of turmoil, I still believe in one thing strongly and that’s the flag and everything our country was built on.
“As I stand for the national anthem, I don’t want there to be questions of why I am standing or if I will kneel. I want there to be a clear understanding of why I stand. I want there to be a clear understanding of why I respect our flag and why I love our country.”
Hopefully Eifert’s new tradition will spread in popularity, as more and more NFL players are taking a stance against these vile protests. Several weeks back, Green Bay safety, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, shocked the nation with an incredible act of patriotism and heartfelt gesture towards our police officers, taking the field with a pair of cleats with the names of the two officers who were tragically killed in the line of duty by cop-hating thugs.
The NFL league has invested quite a bit of money into falsely presenting themselves as patriotic organization over the years, only to have it destroyed by these spoiled and douchey millionaire NFL players who want to use the football field to whine about their “oppression.” But now with patriotic American-loving players like Eifert and Ha Ha starting their own traditions on the field, Kaepernick’s “legacy” could soon be completely destroyed!
