The NFL player protest seem to have taken a step further as a result of President Trump’s harsh statement in which he condemned the protesters and said that players who kneel during the national anthem should be fired.
“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a b*tch off the field right now, out, he’s fired. He’s fired!’,” Trump said. “You know, some owner is gonna do that. He’s gonna say, ‘That guy disrespects our flag, he’s fired.’ And that owner, they don’t know it. They don’t know it. They’re friends of mine, many of them. They don’t know it. They’ll be the most popular person, for a week. They’ll be the most popular person in this country.”
Now, the league plans to run an ad in the Sunday night game about unity, to once again defy President Trump, and continue to disrespect the millions of Americans who have sacrificed themselves for this country, reports Red State Watcher.
The ad was first ran during the Super Bowl in February.
“We think this is the single best response to demonstrate what we are about,” an NFL spokesman said. “It stands in stark contrast to some who practice the politics of division.”
The transcript for the ad states:
“Inside these lines, we don’t have to come from the same place to help each other reach the same destination. Inside these lines, we may have our differences, but recognize there’s more that unites us. Inside these lines, it’s a game of inches, and there’s no such thing as an easy yard when you’re fighting to move forward. Inside these lines, we’re not only defined by our victories, but by the way we handle our defeats. Inside these lines, we can bring out the best in each other, and live united — Inside these lines.”
