Liberals simply don’t get it! Marshawn Lynch, running back for the Oakland Raiders, sat for the Star-Spangled Banner at an NFL game in Mexico City yesterday, yet stood for the Mexican national anthem.
President Trump rightly slammed Lynch for his stupidity and disrespect, suggesting that he be suspended for the remainder of the season by the NFL.
Except the powers that be in the NFL and the team owners, like all liberals, simply do not get it. They see no reason to stand for the national anthem and praise those who defy convention and kneel like $10 hookers or sit on their privileged asses while the fans, who by the way, are responsible for the millions of dollars those players make each year for playing what is more and more looking like a silly game, stand in respect for our flag, our country, our troops, our veterans, and law enforcement, while suffering the insult of the entitled crybaby millionaires.
For you liberals who find it so easy to disrespect America and can’t understand why the rest of us stand in respect for the national anthem, please study the following tweet carefully….

From The Washington Times
Some Democrats rushed to the defense of Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch Monday after President Trump blasted him for sitting Sunday during “The Star-Spangled Banner” but standing for the Mexican national anthem.
Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf tweeted Monday that the city “loves our own @MoneyLynch. Let’s suspend @realDonaldTrump instead.”

Mr. Trump said in an early morning Monday tweet that, “Next time NFL should suspend him for remainder of season. Attendance and ratings way down.”
Rep. Ted Lieu, California Democrat, declared that, “What makes America great is that Marshawn Lynch and the free people of America don’t have to listen to @realDonaldTrump.”
What makes America great is that Marshawn Lynch and the free people of America don't have to listen to @realDonaldTrump. We can stand, sit, kneel, dance or read the US Constitution during our national anthem. https://t.co/Os963ViX3H

Omar Vaid, who’s running for the Democratic nomination for a House seat in New York, said that “Marshawn Lynchshouldn’t be suspended, but Trump should be impeached.”
We defend Marshawn Lynch and our brothers and sisters in Mexico against scapegoating from the Trump WH.

The veteran running back has yet to explain why he regularly sits for “The Star-Spangled Banner,” while other players have described their refusal to stand for the anthem as a protest against the deaths of black men at the hands of police.
One thing Mr. Lynch has made clear is that he’s not a Trump fan: He wore an “Everybody vs. Trump” T-shirt before the Oct. 1 game, shortly after the president suggested team owners fire players who refuse to stand for the anthem.
The Raiders were in Mexico City to play the New England Patriots, who won 33-8.
