This reflects how many people feel about the anthem kneelers. Tucker Carlson goes off on the NFL calling them “pampered millionaires.”
Per Daily Caller:
Carlson stated, “In Washington, D.C. last night, virtually every player on the Raiders sat in protest as a military Army guard carried an American flag onto the field. Now, the sight of pampered millionaires giving the rhetorical finger to the country that made them rich is obviously disgusting, so it was no surprise that in stadiums across America fans booed when they saw this.”
Tucker also called out the difference in left-wing tolerance for free speech of liberal athletes versus tolerance for free speech of conservatives.
“Free speech lectures are a little hard to take from the very people who routinely shut down the political speech of their opponents,” Carlson said.
These athletes are getting an incredibly opportunity that would only be afforded in this great nation. Despite this, they want to disrespect our flag for a protest. A protest that they don’t even know what it means.
What they are forgetting is that the NFL is funded by the fans. The more they spit in the face of the fans, the lower the ratings go. If the ratings go then there goes their exorbitant contracts.
As usual Tucker Carlson nails it.
