On Sunday, our incredible Vice President Mike Pence wow’ed Americans when he attended an NFL game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Indianapolis Colts and actually left at the start of the game, after several players kneeled during the national anthem.
When he was questions about his decision to leave, the VP said, ‘I left today’s Colts game because President Trump and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem. At a time when so many Americans are inspiring our nation with their courage, resolve, and resilience, now, more than ever, we should rally around our Flag and everything that unites us.’
Every conservative in America praised the Vice President as well as President Trump himself, who said he told the VP he is proud of him and his wife for leaving.
But as a response to Pence’s walkout, the NFL Player’s Association released a statement this Sunday evening:
Players have also raised their voice on the matter, with the most recent one being Eric Reid, safety for the 49ers, which called out the VP, saying:
‘This is what systemic oppression looks like. A man with power comes to the game, tweets a couple of things out and leaves the game with an attempt to thwart our efforts.’
Do you support Vice President Pence for showing his patriotism and walking out when the players kneeled?
Let’s face it folks, VP Pence is a Colt’s fan and the last thing he wanted to do was miss the game but he just could not stand the disrespect to our country, our flag and those who protect it! You can do nothing but respect the man for that.
