Top Democrat’s new national anthem protest will leave you speechless
Democrats and members of the media were furious that the NFL passed a new rule requiring every player on the field to stand for the national anthem.
The left took this as a massive defeat at the hands of Donald Trump in the culture wars.
Now one top Democrat is lashing out with a new national anthem protest that will leave you speechless.
Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison is the Deputy Chairman of the Democrat National Committee and one of the most high profile leftists in America.
Ellison reacted to the news that the NFL would no longer allow their games to be used as a platform for anti-American displays by claiming he would now boycott the league and refuse to watch any games.
Friends who know me, know that I love football. But I won’t be watching this NFL season because of the unfair cowardly and idiotic kneeling ban. #BoycottNFL

If Democrats want to escalate this fight over the national anthem, Republicans will only be too happy to engage.
Supporting America-hating football players who disrespect the flag, the national anthem and the members of the military who lost their lives in defense of them will only serve to help mobilize the Republican base ahead of the midterms.
Cultural flashpoints like liberals turning against the symbols of America convinced millions of voters the Democrat Party was out of touch with real America.
And it pushed them into the arms of Donald Trump.
Democrats could see a replay in 2018.
