Herschel Walker blames NFL commissioner for anthem crisis

NFL superstar says: “Our Flag Is Very Special”

Zerohedge reports that former NFL susperstar Herschel Walker – who aggressively praised America’s military heroes and first responders – slams NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for not quelling the national anthem protests.

NYPost’s John Aidan Byrne reports that the Heisman Trophy winner doesn’t beat around the bush…

“Guys, let me tell you this,” he said.

Walker continued…

I think there’s no law requiring the playing of the national anthem. So no law is being broken not standing or not singing. and coerced shows of loyalty are unbecoming for a free people and is evidence of unfreedom. play football or not, worship a flag or not but don’t combine play with worship. so let those who think abuse is argument begin abusing.

Standing for the flag is evidence of “unfreedom” ? What’s the opposite of “freedom”? Slavery?

Standing for the flag means a person is agreeing to slavery? LOL!

So do the pointy heads of the Left pontificate… “Freedom is Slavery” ! LOL!
