CNN’s Montel Williams claimed that Republicans who dislike these NFL protests don’t care about the flag, they just care about hating black people. Ever since President Trump insulted NFL players, the mainstream media has been refused to listen to Conservatives who just don’t want people disrespecting our country.
“This has nothing to do with disrespecting the flag. It has to do with the fact that in some ways in this country we still think black men should shut up, accept what you get, and keep your mouth shut. I don’t agree,” said Williams.
“Look, I’ll tell you something— the reason I spoke out this week is because again, let’s break this down. I held my hand up and said ‘I do solemnly swear and affirm that I will support the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic.’ I didn’t say I support a flag, a piece of paper. I said the Constitution,” said Williams.
“And when I do so, that means that the first thing that our forefathers thought to give us the right to do was the right to protest,” said Williams.
“So you denigrate and disrespect the lives of all 300,000 Americans that died in World War II, 600,000 Americans that were wounded in World War II, the thousands that have just put their life on the line right now to give you the right to protest. You denigrate them. Stop it,” he said. That is ridiculous. Check out the video below.
