VP Pence, The National Anthem, And Hypocritical Players / Left.

On Sunday, Vice President Mike Pence showed up at the NFL game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Indianapolis Colts.

Pence stood up for the national anthem with his hand over his heart.

When players knelt in protest, Pence waited until after the anthem had finished and then left. Pence later tweeted:

We read about this on and then caught a bit of it on ESPN’s Sportscenter. Before we even read the entire article, we knew what the reaction of the players and the left would be.

We knew there would be outrage at Pence making a quiet, effective statement about the protests and the protesters.

And we were right:

49ers safety Eric Reid said he believed Pence’s actions were premeditated.

“First of all, does anyone know the last time he’s been to a football game?” Reid said after the game. “OK, with that being said, he tweeted out a 3-year-old photo of him at a Colts game. So with the information that I have, the last time he’s been to a football game is three years ago. So this looks like a PR stunt to me.

“He knew our team has had the most players protest. He knew that we were probably going to do it again. This is what systemic oppression looks like. A man with power comes to the game, tweets a couple things out and leaves the game in an attempt to thwart our efforts. Based on the information I have, that’s the assumption I made.”

Comments on the article condemn Pence for his “publicity stunt.”

Here’s a newsflash: What are the protesters doing other than a publicity stunt? What are they doing other than to try and make a statement? Isn’t the Vice President allowed to make a statement on the players as well? Isn’t the Vice President allowed to say “I disagree with the manner in which you are protesting?”

Those questions are, of course, rhetorical.

The left only believes in speech for their opinions. Anyone who disagrees with them needs to shut up.

As if we needed more proof, Pence proved the hypocrisy of the left and the players.
