It seems like are calming down with regards to the controversy over members of the NFL protesting during the national anthem at football games. Thank God! Football ought to be a time when Americans can put their political differences aside and just enjoy a great game.

During the controversy a few big points were completely left out of the conversation. If someone is so upset about what is going on, the “disrespect” of the flag and America’s history and veterans, then why aren’t we more outraged about Congress disrespecting the flag, our history, and our veterans?

The whole thing reeked of selective outrage from both sides. Are players concerned about Black Lives, or are they just standing for free speech? If they really support the BLM movement, why don’t they speak out about all of the young black men killed on the streets of America’s inner cities? Hypocrisy.

We’re Outraged About the Wrong Things
